Ten... mono laser all-in-one printers

ChrisF18

There’s a button for a direct screen print from an attached PC, which can be handy.

I have visions of someone walking past, pressing this button, and taking my screen print without my knowing now.

Tesco: buy a DVD, get the download free

ChrisF18

@Mage - Company I worked for did exactly this (download now, DVD later), 5 years ago. Because of the dealer price, I'm pretty sure it was a bit of a loss-leader...

Samsung Chromebook: The $499 Google thought experiment

Thumb Up

Not now, but the future for the majority

When Google services offer offline modes, and the price comes down (I think the magic sweet spot for me would be £169), I'm certain this would all parents / grandparents would ever need. We need bash prompts, IDEs and compilers, high-powered native gaming, and other CPU intensive applications. We are not the target audience.

For the target audience, with the exception of needing a new printer (and pending the inevitable changes around HTML5 and pricing), I really can't understand the weaknesses. Hell, even I'd get one for browsing in the living room (I'm not a tablet fan). Give it 12 months, and lets see what happens.

No legal DRM-free downloads?

It's not 2007. Play, Amazon, 7Digital for starters.

An HTC named Desire. OK, two HTCs...

Android 3 ready?

If the Desire HD were touted as 'Android 3 ready' (maybe even with a promise to release the update within 6 months of Google bringing it out), that would really put my mind at rest.

Post Office complaints: Write to M.BARRASS

Post Office broadband

Don't bother. Seriously. When I tell them my phone number, they say they've got a different one on file for me - even though they supply my landline too. It's beyond me how they can bill me, yet don't have that number on file...
