Stockpoort for the Reg Hacks, Stockport for everyone else. ;)
It's spelt Stockport you cretins!
It might be grim up North, but at least we can spell. :p
Yay, by iPhone 4 now runs at a proper speed. :D
Far from the first time this has happened. IBM Global Services relocated the account I was working on from Manchester to Greenock in 2002, to populate a new building. The large chunk of government cash to help them put up a new building was just a co-incidence. 3 years later it was closed...
Re: ISP box
Sky advertise it as free email for life. It works even after you leave.
It's a bloody balls up.
There was nothing wrong with the gmail system, Sky have refused to provide a proper reason other than marketing waffle about experiences or fuzzy crap about requirements.
From the FAQ :
Why has the service switched to Yahoo!?
Sky has teamed up with Yahoo! to offer Sky customers a new email service which launched on 4 April. Google is no longer able to provide Sky with an email platform that caters for our requirements. As another leading provider of email services, we’ve chosen Yahoo! to power the new Sky Yahoo! Mail.
I can only assume requirements translates as "so cheap it's nearly free".
I still can't log in using Apple Mail and IMAP. My password is apparently wrong, although it works fine via the webmail link.
Useless. I guess I'm moving everything to iCloud.
A bit of contect.
Wooooo - percentages. Doesn't really mean much without a baseline number of devices to refer it back to. I've got a hunch there are massive of cheap smartphones in there somewhere.skewing the statistics.
The ATI X1600 graphics are no longer supported. The late 2007 MBP has an nVidia GPU.
The 2012 does, just not the retina display model.
In that context I wouldn't call 12in x 4in massive...
Because it's Insanely Great.
/Wonders how long the forums will last once the new owners start to read the content!
Lesson #1 : No option. I've been using the address since 1999, had no option but to let VM shift it to Google.
Lesson #2 : I'm not, apart from the Lesson #1 issue.
"Current MacBook screen resolutions max out at 1440 x 900 on the 15in model".
The 1680x1680 Hi-Res Anti-Glare screen on my 15" would suggest otherwise...
More crap from EA
Yet more arcade crap from EA. Can i have my Porsche's back where they are deserved now? i.e. Forza 4.
Play are small fry. Why close this loophole for a few online sellers and let Vodafone off £6bn in tax?
The main reason corporates avoided X40 series like a red-headed stepchild is the stupid 1.8" iPod size hard drive. Tiny capacity, slow, difficult to replace/upgrade and they didn't work in our disk imager even with the correct adaptor. Lenovo went back to 2.5" drives for the X60 and didn't look back.
Whack 2Gb RAM and a 5400rpm drive in an an X31 and it was far superior.
Better on the Mac
Performance is much improved on the Mac over 3.6, and no stupid orange button. Nice work.
i3 won't fit
The i-series won't fit. It's a three chip solution as Apple won't use the Intel graphics and nVidia don't have a combined Chipset/GPU part.
Won't fit in the 13.3" MBP, so no ******* way it's going in the new Air.
