If something is open to the public for 2 weeks. It could be open all the time to the public with the same security in place.

Smartwatch biz Pebble says smartwatch biz Apple won't approve its new app – surprise

Re: Like School In Summer... No Class

We have a problem on the anti trust front. In that Apple will claim they have less the 50% market share and android has more, I think Blackberry and Windows phones are also available.

Although Android is part of the Google empire it is spread a lot more thinly, as each phone maker Sony, Samsung, etc. are all competing for you cash. So although Apple have less share, their share is a lot bigger than the rest and they do make the most of it (Who can blame them?)

But by the time it goes through the legal stuff, it gets messed up and no one can see what is really going on.

Skype hauled into court after refusing to hand call records to cops

Only me!
Thumb Up

Good for them

It is always good to see that the correct process in law is getting followed. The police cannot just come in to my house and expect to go through all the draws without first getting the ok from a judge that there might be something worth looking for. So why should they be able to do it to Skype?

That is of cause, unless the law is a really stupid one, like the extradition law the UK has with the US.

A gold MacBook with just ONE USB port? Apple, you're DRUNK

Only me!

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 :-)

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 :-)

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!

Samaritans 'suicide Twitter-sniffer' BACKFIRES over privacy concerns

Only me!

Opt Out

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.

Walked away

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.

Hungary's internet tax cannot be allowed to set a precedent, says EC

Only me!

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.

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!)

Philip Morris seeks pay-per-puff patent to help you STOP smoking

Only me!
Mushroom

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,.......

Straight to video: Facebook to add 'view counts' to autoplay newsfeed vids

Only me!

MiFI

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.

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.
