The Reg is doomed!
With all the extreme views about Apple, Microsoft, Google, Linux and Android Le Reg will be blocked as a matter of urgency!
Re: This is why people should have bought the RT version
One app at once..….Just like iOS and people seem to like that restriction, which is why MS thought it was a good idea!
Windows mobile was great due to multiple things running.
Google and android think multiple running apps are the way to go. But does all the hardware standup to it?
Down votes from all sides result ;-)
Yep I buy 1080 and set it to 720 on all my devices. TV, tablet and phone. I just pay for the extra dots because I can!
Or maybe I don't.
Re: I applaud this approach
As luck would have it. Yes.
Now who says Apple's margins are on the high side?
Re: Fingerprint scanner?
My gym has just deployed finger scanners to get in and out.....works on the way in.
On the way out when I am a little more heated up and about to run home it does not play ball!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: The arrogance!
What about the "FREE" speech of the web sites that cannot pay?
I pay the ISP to deliver content at XMb.
Now as far as I am concerned that means they delver the "internet" at the agreed price and agreed speed.
If the need / want to charge me more, fine tell me the price and I will see if it matches to what I want.
Hang on.....when they choose FREELY to become an ISP, did they not sign up to delivering the internet in a neutral way?
At least he Tried
Ok he might not fully understand tech or users. But give the guy a break and least he tried!
XP - Good
Windows Mobile - I was connected to work and personal email years before everyone else.
Win 7 - Good
Win 8 - Fast boot very quick. After several months I have got my head around it (But god just give me a Start button and boot to the desktop!)
List of not so good thing, I cannot be bother to list them all ;-)
Icon.....ALL of them if I could
Yep there is a problem and it has been there for a while.
Between the Nexus 4, Xoom and wifi connections. You can get them all to work! But not in an Apple claimed kind of way "It just works" (I will get the down votes for that comment)
You have to work out if the device wifi security works on 2GHz or 5Ghz best, you then have to step through the wifi security settings WPA, WPA2, open! Work out which combination works (Normally not the fasted or most secure) Then have to live with it! (Router setting changes may also be required, just to add the extra fun)
Other than that any idiot can get it to work. Doh!

Conclusion.....1 British agent is on the case of Le Reg!
Space I want space!!!!! (well GB space)
The reason I have not purchased a new laptop tablot or what ever they are called is simple. They are only just getting to the point where they need to be. £1000+ for a 128Gb mainly taken up by OS and programmes, leaves me nothing for the stuff I need.
I am not a HD movie junky or have a zellian mp3s and they do not have enough storage space for me......and all I want id 256 or god forbid! 512GB of bloody disk capacity.
In fact I think I would cough (painfully) the extra £??? for that space.
Until then, I sit here with my old lappy that I wanted to replace well over a year ago........
UK Gov V Premier Leauge
This is a nice set of stories today.............................
1. UK Gov charge £56M for calling them
2. Steams from Premier League get cut
SKY charge more and more ..... a few select people agents, players, hangers on, etc. get paid a few extra million each a year
Gov charges poorest to say "Where is my pension money this week?"
Just trying to get my head around equality today.
My head hurts!
Turn the tables
How about this.....all the mobile carriers get together and tell Apple they need to promote them as a carrier before the carrier will activate a SIM in an iPhone. TV adds, poster ads, percentage of total sale value (including the mobile contract).
In Russia they might get away with it depending the political elite.
Now that would turn the tables.
So a bunch of marketing people, let's call them Tw4ts are going to pay a bunch of Twitters knows as Tw4ters to spam a bunch of people on twitter, let's call them the Tw4atted with adverts.
I think that about sums it up ;-)
What a Bright Idea
That is all!
This is a major story.....Oz has floated off in the ocean and is now 70km off course....PANIC!!!!
Pay Twice Great!
So I paid over the top for my last monitor and due to this fine I will pay over the top for my next one.
Thanks, bloody thanks a lot......
Lets face it
Some one is certainly taking the mick.....two weeks!!!
If I had lead times like that to do a bit of work, I would be a happy man as by now on a Friday I would be emptying this
Money off to iOS6
Useless!!! Unless you already know where the Harvester you are going to eat is!
Of course you will find it if the local Apple store are having a meal out there with the blue shirt guys.
Apple have already won
By keeping the Galaxy Tab off out of the shops for months, Apple have done what they wanted. People will have already purchased their iPad and that will do most people for a couple of years after which many of the people with stick with what they know and buy Apple again. Plus of course they will be trapped in the walled garden and climbing over the wall could be painful and expensive!
If a UK firm had done this and sold some to the US.....you could bet your life the MD would be on a plane to get some American justice ..... 25 years for each violation....that's 30,000 years you have to serve....and $1Bn will do as a fine.
Or Oh you are a US company....naughty, naught....please do not do it again!
We are all equal...just some are more equal than others.
Ok I have said it....the Apple clock has rounded corners, so it must be theirs and they will sue because the Swiss have copied them by "Extending" the rounded corners in to a circle!
Re: Just amazing
1. At most there was only one mob per family.
2. Only one landline per family....most people still have this
3. Show me where I can pay £1000 for a PC today that will not be out of date in 2 years.
Now everyone in the house has a mobile on £30 or so a month....now when I was a kid at school I had a part time job....the money from which I could spend as I pleased.....most school kids now do not have jobs but do have the latest mobile........
Life outside the Apple eco-system.....our you mad?
The world is flat you do know that right?
If the sale of these was announced on 12 Sept......I would sign up to buy one and even queue!
The only use
I do see one use for this type of payment. You can load up your kids mobile with say £30 and you can check how the money is spent.....i.e. not at local fag shop etc.....
But other than that it seems like a solution looking for a problem to solve. Just get the card out of your pocket and bonk that.
Paris because as we all know likes a good bonking system!
Maple syrup thieves.....
They will be the ones with the wigs on.
Market opening for a real search engine!!!
For a search engine that just searches "sites" and not Faceslap or Google minus
IFA 2012 YES! I AM TAKING A PICTURE!
Why is this article not about Yahoo???
Come to think of it can the SIII be used as a discus?
Apple / Samsug
Give each of them the others phone.....who throws it furthest wins the court case!!!!
Lets start with with the phase "Tablet and Slate"
Wonder if it will bring up Stonehenge or at the very least an episode from Star Trek.
Mines the one with the rounded pockets.
The more choice the "better" seems to be the moto!!!
Just stick to BCC1, 2, 3, 4, News, a bit of C4 and ITV4 for the cycling!
If you need more TV than that, you can go on the local "Baby Bro" reality programme coming to a place near you.
Come on....you know that is going to a court near you soon!!!!!!
If M$ did not have the money to fend off a Metro case, these lot certainly will not.
Coverage good....web catch up service could do better
The coverage was fab providing you watched it LIVE. The problem with the catchup service on the website was as you clicked through it told you the results of the sport on the same page as it had the link to watch the catchup. So a couple of times I went to watch something as if it was live (work does get in the way sometimes) and was greeted with the result before I could get to the catchup. May be one page with all the catchup stuff on (not show results) would be nice.
ITV do the same thing a lot of the time on their catchup service.....went to watch the tour highlights and the picture on the link showed the days winner crossing the line....it takes a lot of enjoyment out of then watching an hour long programme!
Come on it is not rocket science!
what about Orange assistant......that was around way before any of these. I cannot remember the date it started, but it was taken out of action sometime in 2004.
It allowed you to use your voice to call people, do simple searches of address book, cannot remember what else it did......but remember thinking wow this is really good!
What has happened to the Wales measurement?
Surely the story should be saying how many Wales £21tn of £5 notes would cover!
What has happen to the youth of today.....no respect for tradition!
Yes you knew where you were going!
It is not the GPS data that is the problem here.....it is the fact they used the phone network to transmit the data.
GPS on a bike is fab......100 miles of open road that you have never cycled before....and away you go without getting lost or having to stop at each corner and consult the map.
And I saw it all
Well I was at Richmond Park to see both races out and back :-)
It was very funny.....loads of people trying to stream the race on their iPads (I am sure that uses way more data than twitter!!!
Anyway I had purchased a little portable TV......guess who had a load of people looking over my shoulder!
Lets face it we all know that when you get that many people in one space you need to revert to tech other than you mobile......if we get loose anyone meet at x point......and in my case good old TV works way better than streaming at events like this!
Re: On the unwisdom of interpreting others' predictions too loosely.
We all know in IT that things do not happen every week, batch jobs, changes in monthly procedures, quarterly end routines, the list goes on and on.....it can take a while for things to fall apart.
For infoR I was not referring to his article ...... I was referring to real life ;-)
Now about sacking all the IT staff......want to reconsider?
Did you really write "coming to Toshiba tellies soon" in your article.....but I do think that does say it all
<<<< Have to use this icon...less smutty than Paris
