Re: Excellent news.
"As a WP8 user, i was starting to wonder if i had made the right choice"
Erm what, if you like it then surely you have made the right choice for yourself?
Re: Private companies DO do this
Wow thats a lot of downvotes just to say its not just Apple, most American companies I have used from the UK require a copy of my Passport. This is mainly for renting dedicated servers, but many EU companies also do this.
I hate Apple but as Buzz has said its nothing new or out of the ordinary.
Re: Kind of an odd stance from MS
Well the shoe is now on the other foot (Assuming this statement means someone elses foot) and other companies are doing to MS what they previously did to other companies.
Re: I'm not sure that this statement is correct
"it walks all over Top Gear et al"
Top Gear is just an entertainment program these days, the Top Gear Mag seems to be the only place they do serious reviews these days (Even if the TV show does try to do a proper review it ends up with Ross Kemp stuck in the boot of a car somewhere in the channel).
Re: No network = No Work
"most posts occur during the working day"
Come on Lunch Break, why won't this day end >_<
Re: Suggested a Chromebook for my mother
Yeah but for the price its hard to resist, if all you need it for is surfing the web and watching youtube it looks good. They must also have some remote desktop options available and vpn as well which can extend functionality for anyone who can configure it.
Re: Opera UI trade secrets
Everyone has copied ideas in some form, the problem is everyone wants tabs because its a good idea (Looking at you Outlook, Notes has had tabs for years GIVE ME TABS!). Seperate windows are inefficent (Much like my spelling).
I can't see Opera getting much out of this apart from some news space
Re: Hate to say this... but...
"but Europe occasionally has worker's rights"
Really, do you have some examples?
Looks like us Opera Fanboys are completly outnumbered by the Mozilla Fanboys :(
Re: An attacker therefore just has to wait for a valid user to authenticate
I was going to go meh none here but actually things like our WAN routers which are managed have modems attached to their Cisco Routers, we also have a few Lantronix Ethernet converters (Actually come to think of it commands passed to a port from the software contain no authentication info other than one connection to an ip at a time, time to review it methinks).
Re: The maths don't add up...
4 Billion includes damages I believe
Re: Humans are too intelligent for inferior local norms
Stop blowing up Mars, the Mysterons get very cranky especially when non mysterons are in a mysteron group on heat!

Add LCD's to everything
Re: all you need to know
But you are paying for a preconfigured system with an MS License as well as the iSCSI software license (I can't remember the name). I wouldn't buy it if I was going to replace the OS with Linux.
I always hate conversations of everyone on Windows 7, yes except for our XP embedded machines.
Opens a can of worms.
Re: good riddance
Really I thought it the decline in web designers using it for websites.
I take teabags with me :S
Whats wrong with me disliking everyone elses tea, no-one has ever had an issue making me tea with my own tea bags.
Re: I'll see your ARM core and raise you a SATA port. ;-)
Is a HD in a USB caddy that slow?
Re: Doesn't matter
Feels like it
/me tries to uninstall normal Facebook App and finds it reinstalls itself as I am to lazy to put a decent custom Rom on it
Re: My Z10
Hmm Dilbert has a point, maybe the BB isnt expensive enough for the salesmen to try and flog em then.
I saw it first!
Re: …And we still have no idea what these patents are
@AC Yes but they want their devices to work straight away, i.e plugin to a PC, MAC, Linux machine and have a readily available disc.
There are already plenty of other file systems about, I suppose the problem is trying to get OS's not designed for it to behave.
Re: I'm confused...
Google are hoping the wearer will wear it whilst the item is posted on ebay where by they will despatch the nearest Google car to disable the glasses and the wearer in one go.
Don't mention fluffy bunnies
"Just mention anything people don't like very much and we'll be fine."
Re: Is this the same Eric Schmidt
His just annoyed that people who are fed up of GoogleCars are deliberatly spying on him in his own back garden.
**Moves Drone with Camera nearer a Tree**
I apply updates when I shutdown, I can't help that I am lazy (Well ok I can but I am so lazy I demand Automatic updates take place when it doesnt bother me).
Re: RE: unique to iPhones?
Not sure, the problem is Apple have their own stores where as for instants I have a HTC so I would have to send it back. I wouldn't be able to see if they were checking tape or not.
Re: UK leads the way...
"My favourite sonic would have to be the combined sonic 3 & knuckles"
Same here, its a shame it wasnt all released in Sonic 3 as it does mean the best overal game for me has to be Sonic 2 because of it.
One thing I did enjoy was the tunes of most Sega produced games, Flying Battery ftw
Re: Dual-Core Atom = Home
If you simply need something stored with RAID 5 that'll be accessed maybe once every 10 years an Atom or ARM processor surely should be enough, anyway you have Itaniums in your NAS?
Re: Who cares anyway ?...
MS need people to buy Office to keep the money rolling in, if "Polaris, Kingsoft, QuickOffice, Documents to Go" decide to bring out desktop apps and they get a foot hold it can cost MS dearly.
This investigation is a bit late isnt it?
I would have thought it would be started almost immediatly, otherwise it tends to get harder and drawn out.
I wouldnt want any
Especially after my current 2 year old phone was preloaded with lots of stuff, that then very nicely charged you even though you click "NO EXIT I DO NOT WANT" when it pops up saying it'll cost £3 a month (Waves fist at TrafficTV and Orange for preloading it).
Re: > steam sale type prices (Always Online Required)
Although when you go online your Steam client will sent a few thousand "Achievements" (Wish there was an option to disable acheievements as I don't want people to know I know how to use a mouse for every game I own on it)
Re: Windows XP was considered a failure when it was first introduced
You think that was bad, I got a home pc which was supposed to get Windows 98 and to my horror had Windows ME installed. XP would never randomly Blue screen (Yes 9x did BSOD a lot but nowhere near as much as ME even when maxxed out on 512MB memory) on your or have people point and laugh at you at LANS.
I thought the waybackmachine had this pretty much covered anyway, apart from maybe ebooks it sounds the same to me.
Re: lovely, until the price
They are quoting RRP I believe
You forgot Full Throttle
/me sends the Duracel bunnies after thesykes
Re: Just because you CAN do it, doesn't mean its a good idea
Thumbs up because I know for a fact you'll get complaints from people saying why can't I send this 1GB file and will call you a server nazi
Re: Opera the sad panda
Dammit want to defend Opera but can't :(
Havent used it much since as the only feature I still like over other browsers is the close and have everything saved by default (Much like Lotus Notes).
