Re: Still too expensive
@djstardust: How will you run OS X on that cheaper Windows laptop?
Re: I fear robot rebellion
@btrower: Just talk to Ash, he knows what to do.
Actually @jake, that's Alzheimer's, named after the psychiatrist/neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer who first described the condition.
When casting stones, it's best if you don't live in a glass house.
Re: Time for some truly revolutionary GUIs?
We have this type of interface already, it's called a secretary. Or personal assistant or whatever the politically correct term is these days.
"Since when was the 45th anniversary of anything at all significant?"
They don't want it to have a mid-life crisis and run off to buy a sports car?
Re: Some of those redditors...
That was no moon.
Anyone purchasing tin-foil is also on the list.
Nothing must block the brain scanners.

Always practice safe sex.
You never know what you might cathch.
I'd much prefer you connect with me on cockring.
"Cockring, the close circle helping you grow your business."
@E 2 : NSA, GCHQ, etc.
Finally! I can now stop doing all that manually!
It has been consuming way too much of my day.
TrishaD, I see you throat warbling cd.
And raise you one Vogon poetry CD.
Zuck on that FB!
That's not how you play Russian Roulette.
Re: Did they fix the bug where you can't use a Swype keyboard?
Get a real keyboard!
Sent from my work provided Bold 9900. Keyboard very good, device not so good. :(
I went. Steve had already taken all the chairs and emptied the buffet table.
That's no moon.
I'll get my coat.
Re: be afraid
As long as it's a sectional couch it shouldn't be too bad.
A double pull-out on the other hand...
Re: Cloth nappies FTW
We tried cloth nappies with our first son, 5 years ago. Really, we did. We were pro-planet, cloth is better for baby, who cares about the initial cost because we save money in the long run parents.
But, he would soak the nappies and any clothes he was wearing at the time.
That doesn't sound too bad, except he did this almost hourly. Even with the extra inserts and the "waterproof" cover.
Disposable worked out cheaper because with them we managed to keep our sanity.
Right, iOS devices avoid this problem by only allowing the installation of Apple approved malware.
Re: Poor little comet
After all the probing we've gotten from alien entities, it's about time we caught something alien and probed back.
I use folders to clean up the cruft I'll never use.
Though I suppose I should just choose to hide the icons I don't want.
Re: The tape worked loose...
It was feeling a little bloated and was getting rid of the crapware.
That turned me off the Gear.
Who came up with that train wreck?
Re: Nothing beats a physical shutter
Electrical tape? But that will run down my battery!
Do you feel real ill when you start to chill?
Re: I'd certainly get a surface....
Let me get this straight...
You'd spend $200 to put Android on a Surface for what reason? To spit in Microsoft's face? "Ha ha! Look at me I put a real OS on your tablet!" ?
Microsoft doesn't care, they alreay have your money, they got more than they thought they'd get from you.
If you want Android, there's a tonne of devices out there.
If you want IOS, Apple has you covered.
I don't understand the whole "if it had Linux/Android on it I'd buy it" comments. Microsoft is flogging their OS on their devices, why would they make devices to run competing OS' on?
Re: Not for me :(
Maybe the Lenovo X series of Thinkpads?
Not 100% sure they meet all your criteria though.
@AC at 13:15
Yes, Android and IOS can inspire awe during use.
Oh wait, you meant it's unpleasant to use? Well, that would be "awful" then.
Sound similar, means two different things though.
Re: No GPS?
For satnav you really need a Surface tablet.
"Where do you want to go today?"
He isn't worried about them taking the piss?
That's a relief.
Re: Why Worry over Wirral Willy?
I wouldn't want to be around when the property value reaches it's peak.
it's a good thing...
It's a good thing the estate at the tip of Georges Road doesn't have a fountain in the back yard.
Actually, it would be better if it did. :)
Re: Micrososft FUD machine in full swing.
I had a BO laptop back then.
A little soap fixed it though.
The Playbook was a nice tablet, it's too bad it was doomed from the start.
My Nexus 7 kicks it's ass when it comes to performance - and it damn well should as it's a couple of generations newer - but there's something about the Playbook's UI that I prefer to Android.
It's also way more solid and stands up to abuse better than pretty much any tablet I've seen, apart from Panasonic's Tough model...
I still think that the Playbook method of swiping inwards from the edges to access menus, keyboard, running applications (which run even while in the background) is superior to Android's (almost) always present task bars.
To each their own though.
Re: Braver than I...
As a Montrealer, I find having a shaved head is better in the winter.
So much easier with the tuque, no messy tuque head when you get to the office.
cheap cloud servers
I just picked up a cloud server for $35 CAD, one-time fee for a lifetime access.
Specs are low though, one Xeon CPU @2.7GHz, 512MB RAM, 10GB fibre-channel disk, 100Mbps connection with 500GB transfer/month.
Not sure what I'm going to do with it though.

Re: Won't they just take to sulking in basements?
You should upgrade to the Joo Janta 300, they respond faster and also pipe soothing music into your ears.
Mine's got the hardcover collection in the pocket. It's why I limp. :)
Re: Floppy disk
I've got a USB one in my tool kit.
Certain server manufacturers still require them for firmware upgrades.
This can't be a Googorola phone.
Surely it's an Ikea phone?
Re: Curved is good - not really
I like my phones the way I like my women. Curvy.
The LG G Flex.
"It hits that sweet spot."
Re: Can't Microsoft do something right?
Morale can't go down the drain, there are no drains at Microsoft.
You don't need drains if you never produce any crap...
Funny, the Youtube app works fine on my Blackberry phone and tablet...
So is it only MS that Google is shunning?
Re: In 5 years time ...
I wouldn't worry, Lucas electrics work as well underwater as they do above.
Re: Not convinced Apple will release a watch
The iTurd c would come in a cheap plastic bag though...
The system eventually learns do clean it's own core dumps.
Some systems learn more quickly than others though.
Re: it's 3D TV, again
Isn't that what a butler is for? :)
Re: Entrenched and defensive
They aren't saying "Don't buy our competitor's kit."
They are saying "Don't bring it to work with you."
If I were a manufacturer I wouldn't want my employees bringing competitor's kit to the office. I wouldn't care what they used outside of work, as long as they aren't wearing my company's ID.
While free wi-fi access to the info is commendable, it ignores the fact that many of these people can't afford the smartphone or computer to use the wi-fi.
