Because 'f**k you', m-kay?...
... But I guess they were too timid to do that.
You get the joke quite early on and they play on that all the way through.
I've just been playing around with it, and it's actually OK so far. *Gasp*
It looks and acts like a simple shell to the software that you can install. Which is what you'd expect from an OS, isn't it? - Just an faint outline of control, not some monster waiting to growl at the user with indecipherable error messages.
That's the impression it gives anyway.
Yes, I am a little disappointed (!), I thought I'd hate it, but there's no point in lying. I need to give it some more time though...
'Ask me anything' it says on the task bar,,,
"Is this by the same dumb artist who designed the later Visual Studio interfaces?"
- A sort of emotionless and hungry look to it.
I think they said it looked dated, childish and OTT, and they were ashamed it ever existed.
They also claimed it it used up too much power, so that was also embarrassing for the poor dears' green cred.
A smart phone could walk the transparent rendering now of course.
Most people seemed to like it. I still use it as I can keep an easy check on a download if I put it's green bar behind the transparent task bar, so it always shows.
Also - Welcome to Gloucestershire!
No, as I suspect BTs power of lobbying whips goes unchallenged as usual.
...You should write an elaborate and complex Neural network system that lays over the crappy code to help it function correctly! [true story]
"Java (ask.com) and Divx (Wajam) is Pirated Software? I didn't know that!"
I don't need DivX, why would I need DivX? - OH right, it's used for 'ripped' stuff, right?
If you don't download shit you won't get shit, stop blaming the computer, it's YOU!
Stop using pirated software!! FOR EVER.
That copy of Photoshop you happen to have is not as innocent as you think, you don't know what it's allowing in, and most importantly, what it's sending out.
Just use MS Security Essentials - if it's good enough for my 80 year old Dad, then it's good enough for me. Neither of us download software from dodgy sites, anyway.
It's sad to think that some people would simply not believe me, but that pirating kid grew up.
There are no specs for the thing yet? Are there?
...off his Mac. Especially all that naughty media stuff.
Because designing my own watch face would be great fun, besides, nice looking watches cost a lot of money.
I just want a normal watch with a round digital face. A face that's always on, and it's design can be changed via a USB connection. Just a simple watch. Why do they always have to be 'smart,' it's stupid.
It doesn't look like XP because these supposed 'designers' can't bring themselves to understand that people actually liked the friendly look XP had. Oh no, it's got to be all modern and swishy - and completely unfamiliar. Fecking eedjuts.
Spell checkers do not replace humans!
How the heck did they do that? Amazing.
I think it does need a little more contrast though, as the colours are a bit pale.
Sometimes the word 'Brits' comes across as slightly derogatory. I wish people would stop using it- especially those living in the old British colonies!!! :D :p
There HAS to always to be an egg on top! No matter what you fry up.
I'm not buying a blooming cookery book!
...It's better with an egg on top!
The Bieber story will be told and re-told with more and more embellishment over the next thousand years, until all the rhetoric will be written down freshly from snippets of teenage writings and Lo, he'll appear to be a Jesus like figure - it's what happens, you know.
So what if it's mere ketchup.
If the recipe included ketchup, then you should try it. Or perhaps you should just replace all the condiments with raw Carolina Reaper Chillies instead, and stop being a pussy. :)
'Turned it off' - So you didn't see it at the cinema then?
And there's no point in watching something for 4 minutes, you can't gain anything from doing that.
It was meant to be tasteless. It was quite amusing when Jong-Un and Skylark's personalities hit it off, when all along it was Jong-Un pretending.
The insane gore seemed a little weird though.
.."What's wrong with you, you've still got a water supply, right?!" - the agent.
Supplied water - contract covered. Job done.
In all seriousness though, I wonder how much their productivity would increase if they had NO internet at all?... Not to mention you lot. :p
...and have switched to cloud storage...does this matter?
Most gave it about 2 out of 5 at the time!
Whenever I saw one of those film Critic Books you used to be able to get, I'd search through for Blade Runner and see how well it had done, and it was always panned - I never bought any of those film books of course as I presumed they would be wrong about other films as well, as they had no sense of spectacle, or atmosphere.
And it was actually a bloke that did the forward flipping in that scene! :p
Bitcoin is a commodity.
And a commodity with a sinking value.
Thanks for the feedback.
Cool. What are the front speakers like? They don't appear to be important to many reviewers, and they look like deal makers for me.
It's also not as fast as the iPad Air 2, despite the numbers on the specs.
The key difference is that the iPad Air 2 has 20nm chip architecture, where the Nexus 9 uses 28nm.
Having said that, it's not that far off in terms of speed, and single core tests reveal it to be faster than the new iPad. It just can't quite make it on all the other tests, which is a shame as I fell for the Tegra k1 Denver's hype as a new era device. Oh well.
Like I said, desktop resolution is not the same as in game resolution. Games go into full screen mode at any resolution they want. But 1920 is the usual resolution they aim for in development, currently.
This article doesn't say the game was running in 4 or 5k. So the quoted FPS here may not be accurately representing the machine's 5k screen.
That article suggests going down to 2k to prevent lagging in games, and reviewer states it's acceptable. A lot of code goes on in each pixel shader, so slow downs in massive resolutions makes perfect sense in terms of software and hardware.
5k of pixels is a lot to push through the graphics shaders, and I would have liked to know how the game they tested ran at full resolution.
I wanted to see the new Constantine TV series. Unfortunately I have to be on Prime to see it.
I would have gladly payed a couple of quid, but I'm not paying £79 just to see if it's any good.
Hey AMAZON! You're actually stopping me from giving you money to watch something, please step back and see how stupid that strategy is.
...a sack of baboons where their brains should be.
LOL at thumbing down a jibe about thumbing down!
Keep going then, you're just so hilarious.
Thanks for replying to my question.
Only on The Reg can I get a thumb down for asking a question!
GW came out in May 2011, and I wonder how popular it is there.
From watching the NVidia events in on the K1 it appears to wipe the rest of the chips aside.
This Nexus 9 might be the one to get me out of the iPad cycle (I only have an iPad 2, but you know what I mean). I get the feeling that this new K1 will crush the new iPad.
And yes I know it's not all about the power for most people, it is for me.
Surely it's the same thing, without having to swing the front around so the phone slot is facing downwards.
£7.99 from Amazon.co.uk :-
I cringed when they were playing it.
I'm not sure why, but I think it's horrible.
Yeah, it must be a jinx removal naming system. "Every even numbered MS OS is cr.. oh".
Well I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Are they trying to take the jinx out of the even numbered OSs!
The iPhone 4 was stainless steal with Aluminosilicate glass on the front and back:-
It stands great pressure and always goes back to original shape. And yeah it suffers from shattering:
iPhone 6+ has an aluminium shell for lightness, which apparently lives up to that other characteristic of aluminum, it bends and stays bent.
I haven't noticed any problems although it did turn on Bluetooth all by itself, which may account for some people's battery drainage.
