I do the same.....but the providers are starting to offer VERY little in way of doing this.£1 -£5 a month off a sim deal, but do not now have to give you no phone! ££££ for them!

To be sure, to be sure.......it's St P's Day after all
About time....bring it on!!!!
Welcome to the wireless world
OK I am no Apple fan, but...we are at the start of a new revolution.....
My Mouse Bluetooth, headphones Bluetooth, keyboard Bluetooth, PowerPoint presentation cast of a wireless display, printer WiFi, file transfer from my phone and camera are wifi.
OK a touch extreme, I grant you, but all possible and all giving good / ok results. Loss of speed and quality of course but no wires. So the one plug to the lappy is for power.
It is a little like the iMac when people could not get the head around not having a disk drive.
Too soon to make the leap at this point, but hey this is the future............to infinity and beyond!
The above has nothing to do with the new Mac Book, but is saying where the tech is going.
Let's mess with the up down votes and say I have a Surface :-)
Re: And their USP is...?
Ok Nexus 4,5 and 6(?) have one led on the front. Download lightflow and every notification can have it flashing in what ever colour you like and at different speeds......I often have 6 different colours on the go....some I look at others mean look at it when ever,
Simple, it works :-)
Well I am back...but why?
The big pics........just why oh why?
Why is the latest stuff just not there?
At least you seem to be replying to comments now.......can you please stop that and spend the time fixing the site....PLEASE!!!!!
Just stop it with the HUGE pictures.
This thread is getting that many comments Le Reg might have to change the counter to 64bit......Gangnam Style :-)
Before you bother doing that Le Reg, put some effort in to putting the old Le Reg site back together!
Fix the cause not the problem. I think is the order of the day!
It was not perfect before, but just required tweaks to fix things.
As the hoards before me have said......Pics too large, text to errr...wrong somehow, headline stories, large areas of purest white m'lord.
I have bee back a few times now and each time I immediately find myself zooming in and out, which just feels like I have stumbled across a stupid childish game of spot the story! Opps I read that one already, but forgot minus 10 points!
It's ok the mobile app will save the day.....of wait a sec..................
How big are these items of desire?
If they are as as out of proportion as your pics on the story headers then they will not fit in my house!
How the heck do the bots get 99.8% I can get no where near that level of accuracy!!
Re: 5.5 million sales...
Tax the number of sales and all of a sudden they will have only 1 sale on the books
UK. Yep we sell there, so that is one sale. Shall we expand to the rest of the EU including the UK.....ok EU=1 sale
Looks like a lot of people are not ashamed to be US, but are ashamed be us.
So to opt out you:
a) Have to know that they monitor the data and tell people
b) Know someone following you is signed up (Steven Fry, watch out)
c) Follow the people that you do not want to monitor you
d) Say hello stop monitoring me
e) De follow them
f) Block the people that are now following you to sell you anti depressant pills because you followed them
Oh as it is that simple, it is all ok then.....lucky I was not depressed before I started, because I am now.
Yep BT walked away from "low margin" deals.......I would like to know what they consider low margin.
It might also tell local government, just how much they have been paying for a far from perfect service.
Note I am been very kind in that statement to say the least!
End User Tax?
Where are they planning to tax this?
Through put of data in the ISP? So do not share your network with others.
Tax the end user.....upload or download or both?
Tax on the EE principle of data counting (Double the data count)
Does it include overhead data that you do not want.....i.e. remove all data considered as spam and do not count advert data you did not click on.
Wrong, this is just wrong.
Well if they are anything like the UK they already tax people each month via VAT.
Why bother with one tax when two will do?
Coming to a country near you.........
Re: "To reminder you"???????
Awesome post sir!
Let's face it, most people that buy a fake will not buy an original Gucci bag.......
But does it have a wider issue....eBay, Gum Tree, Alibaba......might be in for a rough ride.
Put myself on the line here..................
This looks like as good a go as anyone else. Lasts more than a day and a "phone"
Ok I will not be buying one any time soon, but if you had a gun to your head and asked to pick a "New tech watch" you might just go for this one.
Surface is actually a great bit of kit. (no up down votes on this comment please....its about the watch...cuff!)
Re: 1 million less 1...
Do you understand what they are trying to do with Technical Preview????
Crap ...mmm ok not the best, but they never said it was...
I am willing to give them a break on this......for the mo
How can I opt out?
Big data ok, climate change weather patterns.....
But not my personal data,
Will it see the light of day
Just because they have a patent, does not mean it will see the light of day, they will be able to block other firms from trying to help you give up smoking. Or make it that expensive, people will just carry on puffing away.
Of course I could be wrong,.......
This was always going to "surface" as a rumor.....a dual tablet and laptop.....but remember it has not been done yet, so it will be an Apple invention next year!
Muggers are coming
I can see a whole new style of mugging heading to people that have this on their wrist.
Well I never
New bigger phone ....check
New even bigger phone .....check
Watch.......still trying to solve a problem that is not there.
GOLD.......wow I did wonder why these things cost so much.
Case........grab a piece of that market £££££
Well time to all go mad and buy the things.........
Wake me up when September comes.......hang on I might be on to something there.......
Now I use my little MiFi a lot with my tablet.
1. it is a WiFi connection on the tablet
2. It is of course metered, so has limits
3. Even if I did use FaceBook I would NOT want videos playing.
4. The option to turn it off should be a basic option for users to select!!!
Websites that do play video when you first enter them are never entered again.....FaceBook will go the same way for a lot of people.
get a grip
1 contactless payments need to be mills away
2 if you have two contactless cards together it takes neither card
3 2 seconds ... The difference is mill secs but still counts!
over the pond
We have BT who took over £1.2bn from the government to deliver fast broadband to the masses.......now even the gov is wondering if it was a good idea due to over pricing and lack of delivery!
Wait and see
I for one will just wait to see the thing on TV......what's the point in spoiling it my searching and looking this stuff up?
It will be a good chance to develop UK technology companies and a great way for them to consider expanding and under cutting BT in the cities in future! But only after connecting the people BT do not consider worthy......mind you not sure BT consider any customer worthy!!!!!
Good old days
They don't build they like they used to :-)
bring them to book!!
Anyone how hoodwinks a whole market should be brought to book.
If a swipe to unlock is worth silly money in the courts, then what should a real world rip off of people get???
if BT are delighted......
If BTare delighted then Of com have really messed up BIG TIME!!!!!!
As per normal BT take the gov and regulatory bodies for a ride.
Too much cash!
It could be Apple and Google are cash rich and this could end up with either one going under. So draw a truce and let Samsung and Apple fight it out. Which is a fight Apple must think they can win.
I am a cider drinker I drink it all of the day......
Gibbons are highly intelligent primates.
Please do not insult them by saying they might work for this bunch of twonks!!!
Silence is golden!
It certainly was in this case.
Is the game up?
Have people finally worked out companies need to make a profit to actually be worth anything?
Or just sell your old iThing on eBay, local paper, notice board, etc, etc.......Who would have ever thought of that?
You also get to have cash to spend how you want, maybe on that nice Samsung you just spotted.
Re: Kill off BBC3
I think you will find they would have to put part of BBC1 in there to.... Have you ever turned on the TV and heard the mindless shouting on EastEnders?
I do not see a problem, just like a real bank, they loose all the money and then get bailed out by the government! Oh wait a sec I do see a bit of a problem!!!!
Re: One of Cupertino's craftiest competitors?
Are you saying Android is not a major player in the consumer software market.......get a grip, it powers a lot of phones who then part with hard cash to buy apps.
I am sure some investors would prefer an annual dividend, but that might be asking a little too much!
Well someone had to say something eventually!!!
Maybe they should bring in laws like they have for banks.....if an IT supplier thinks they are ripping off the gov to almost the pont of fraund they report themsevels to the gov. What could possibly go wrong with that?
But I would not be shocked if they did bring in a law like that! instead of walking away from suppliers they even think are ripping them off!.
It will be shut down
This little feature will be shut down as soon as the 419ers work out how to make a quick buck out of it.
All people will have in their inbox is more spam than you can shake a Python at.
Re: They haven't since about 2007 (@AC)
Well I had a single touch mobile.....what do you think would come next? But I did have.....
1gb of data ....check! (£30 including calls and text)
WiFi hot spot check!
All before the iPhone.........err.....sorry to say but it was flaming windows mobile. Rough around the edges ( sorry rounded corners) but it did it all.
Oh yes cut and paste too!
The iPhone did a spit and polish to bring it to the masses …….. True. But it was all there already.
Down vote heaven if you do not know your tech!
Who moved Xmas?
Post Xmas as imprints from December 20th to 29th......that analysis says it all.
Next time a touch more realism please.
So if they get one of these things working......who the heck is going to risk an upgrade?
Of course they could force an "auto" upgrade (sorry about the pun), but then people would not get in the car again until they are sure the thing works. Could this be the answer to traffic reduction?
R & D
For gods sake .…. If Apple put in half the effort and money in to R&D they might be able to release a phone that blows the competition away.....same goes for Samsung.
Give it a rest, stop paying the lawyers, employ some more R&D people who might actually do some useful work. Release the new phones.…..then I will pay for the one that meets my needs.
