Re: It seems...
I have JB on my nexus 7 (obviously) and where it's a bit better it's still not un-noticeable. It's highlighted by the lack of audio creation apps on android. Although a major player did release their app last week (the name escapes me) but cost over a tenner so I passed on it.
Re: 'wants a phone that works'
I hear this a lot, but I find that Android on ICS and above is very easy to use, as does my not-really-technical-i-just want-to-send-a-text-and-check-facebook girlfriend.This was maybe not the case a few years ago but I think times have changed.
I'm sure I read a study once which compared how a 'virgin' user would perform tasks on iOS and Android, and I think it was really close. They measured things like hunting around to find the correct button etc.
I always use it at home etc on a fresh build, saves half an hour or so, it's impressive. Would I use it in an Enterprise? Not sure...
It's all about automation, which is usually via CLI.
Who uses firefox anyway?
He should have **takes off sunglasses, folds and puts them in top pocket of shirt** seen that coming
Re: NHS and IT?
Obviously this didn't happen.
You're right. Our Trust wanted to buy some software which prompted users to update their details when they logged on, which in turn updated AD. They got quoted ~£20k I think, including all the bells and whistles. We (IT) found one for a couple of hundred dollars which did everything we needed, but without our help the project managers would probably have ploughed on.
However this my experience in nhs IT: Our budget it get allocated, we spec something up, then the budget gets cut and we have to compromise and the system never really works as we can't afford to do what we wanted to achieve in the first place. We do try and get 'inventive' with licenses etc but there is only so much you can do.
Re: System storage???
Although rooting maybe straight forward for the target audience of this website, 99% of users not even know what rooting is and would never attempt it.
After I passed my Desire to my other half (i got a Galaxy s2 - sooo much better) I was forever looking after it for her; clearing up cache space etc. I don't know what HTC were thinking when they decided on space. It was the reason I left HTC and went to Samsung (2gb for apps, yes please!)
I installed it last night, it crashed twice, and used 11% of my battery in about an hour even though I gave up using it after it crashed. Needless to say I uninstalled it.
Re: What's starting to worry me...

>Android is king of smartphones
> Apple is eating into Microsoft's turf on the desktop
Would this be why my experience on the whole of the BBC domain has been slow for the last month or so then?
Also, what is the name of that software used for the ping tests?
Use tinfoil for android.
'Wood' you believe it!?
Like a lot of things, it's surely a price thing. The cheapest are about 300 quid, and some are more. I've just got a i5 (sandybridge) etc laptop for £399 (ASUS K53E, impressed with it btw) which will run everything I through at it from an OS standpoint
Is anyone surprised by this? Like dogged says, it will need a huge price cut to succeed
It compresses the data, also. Hence the extra cpu power. Which I believe can be chosen to be done client or server side.
Speaking from experience....
I work in Middlesbrough so I feel I'm well placed to comment....
Parmo's (I try and said Parmasan to avoid looking like a chav) are awesome, they generally come in chicken rather than pork though, and cost about £6 ish for a "full" (which would easily make 2 meals) . I haven't had one for 6 months as I try and keep them too a minimum for health reasons!
We've moved on to Shawarma's sandwiches now though...middle eastern loveliness!
