.....uses hand drawn notes for all the maths - seems to be quite effective
I think there is a Market
For the pro ..that is , just shipped out a couple of HP elite pads to a client, they already had an ipad - it just didn't do what they wanted. The surface pro running on atom seems to work well, quite a smooth os and runs full office and their other apps.
Not seen a single surface in any shop in the uk ....if the product is not there no-one will buy it
Not quite sure what the fuss about the start menu is ....most users I work with don't notice it exists. If the outlook shortcut gets deleted I get calls with "Email has gone Missing" - they don't actually look for it in the start menu.
MS have done a lot of metric analysis and probably saw that about 1% of users actually use it ......and most of those post on El Reg from what I can see.
Documentry on Horizon
I remember seeing a documentry on Horizon a few years ago which looked at phages and their use/development in the USSR and how the west ignored them as they were "communist" technology. An article on it is here http://twistedbacteria.blogspot.com/2008/02/virus-that-cures.html
good to see that there is progress
Unonoficial WP7 one as well
I found a WP7 "unofficial" remote as well - compared it tothe official one I downloaded on the missuses HTC desire and both work well.......Just wish Samsung had a better text input method for their apps and browser....why they can't support wireless keyboards I'll never know.
My missus has an HTC desire and hates it - for her it is too fiddly and she gets lost easily trying to find things - she's getting a Wp7 next upgrade
Wow I qualify as a 1% er - have virgin 50 mb service...the best download test done gave me 23 mbs - not bad
Lose the password
What happens if you have a complicated password written down on a bit of paper - then you destroy the paper - ergo you cannot remember the password and the only record has been destroyed - rest of your life in gaol ?
