Re: Moto Xoom UK - still waiting
It's a simple process to turn your UK Xoom into a Google Experience Device. Took my UK Xoom through ICS and then directly on to Jelly Bean with no issues. Very worthwhile, Jelly Bean really (and I mean REALLY) improves the Xoom.
(no link to the software authour, just a happy user)
"ICS rolled out in US, JB already started in US too.
EU ICS variant still in development according to their Android support page.
Now Google own Moto, hoped development would be quicker.
Come on Moto!"
I think that the reference is more to do with the fact that it supports a pressure sensitive stylus rather than just a "finger substitute stick" ... not much use to me, but could be an important addition for some.
"And just how old was Jobs when he died?"
Time to fit a frickin' laser to those specs!
Been around for years
google coaguchek, I've been using one for years. Tiny thumb pinprick sample and Roberts your close relative!
Still worth popping into your local Phleb once every couple of months to keep calibration but my older model has never skipped a beat. You may have to buy the unit yourself but I believe the test strips are available on the NHS
Just out of interest...
At what point does resolution cease to matter? My bog standard monitor looks fine to me, no jaggies and even if I put my nose to the screen, I can't make out the individual pixels (my eyes admittedly date back to when man first stood on the moon!)
This isn't an anti technology rant, I just seem to be missing the point of having to shuffle four times as many pixels for very little gain?
Son - I am dissapoint.
No mention on the SE site and my X10 reports no new upgrades available.
Are you paid for these "ads"?
Seriously, this format is a bit pants. And 65% for an item that does exactly what it is supposed to do? I don't understand that rating scale, it sounds like it has been marked down for being too feminine with all that purse and wallet guff.
I still use a Miranda flash unit from around 1984 on my dSLR. It hasn't failed a shot in some 27 years on a myriad of different film and digital cameras. I also have a fully functioning Saisho 14" telly that was purchased to hook up with my new (at the time) ZX Spectrum!
I'm a cheap date!!!
Why is it...
after sitting exams, paying for licenses, calibrating my equipment to 5 decimal places of a MHz and reporting every contact I make via my legally required log book... if I cause the slightest bit of rf interference ofcom can come in and confiscate my entire multi thousand pound set up.
And yet when my local "I know everything about networking", PC world loving neighbour wipes out everything within a 50 MHz range with broadband radio interference it's called progress?
And by the way, there is a hell of a lot more radio traffic below 50MHz than just amateur radio. http://www.fcc.gov/oet/spectrum/table/fcctable.pdf
An unpretentious statue commemorating, from what I've read, a very unpretentious man. I love the design. From what is a very simple sculpture, you get a real feeling of excitement from the way Gagarin is posed.
Cheers Russia... you're back on the christmas card list!
My problem with DAB is that they use the same terminology as the phone companies... ie 99% coverage of the population, NOT the country.
Over here in Ireland for instance, that means that the phone companies smugly quote 99% coverage, when probably only some 50% of the actual land mass is covered. It'll be the same with DAB radio in the UK
Have another read...
"...the researchers released (the software in question) this week as an open-source tool for warding off DoS attacks and similar kinds of automated assaults..."
No secrets in open source land!
No one is ever smug...
...about nuclear power generation. However, due to the design of this generation of reactors, we are still only looking at a minor release of caesium, well within limits to dissipate completely within the atmosphere and a reactor that is never going to work again.
Maybe an explosive event if they cannot release the pressure, but no Chernobyl style "kaboom", the fuel rods will just melt and then cool to ambient temperatures.
An earthquake is a fairly difficult event to contingency plan for.
I would say that far more environmental damage has been done where the tsunami washed through the industrial centres and then pulled back it's cargo of toxins, heavy metals etc back into the sea / dumped it on the surrounding land.
I don't think that there is any doubt about the effects on eyesight when using backlit display technology.
Read 10 point text for an hour on a backlit device... even the manufacturers tell you to rest your eyes every fifteen minutes. Now try the same with e-ink... oh, thats better isn't it?
And thats the simple point we're making.
PS my eyes are in no way enfeebled and I don't think I need to turn off my "effing monitor" Thanks for the input though.
In other news...
... apples to outsell oranges.
Consumers buy book readers as they are terrific devices on which to read books, eink displays, 1 month battery life etc.
Consumers buy tablets as they are terrific devices to do things that don't quite warrant firing up the laptop, bit of facebook, quick email and a trip to you tube
I can access the internet on my Kindle... it drives me batshit within five seconds.
I can read books on my tablet... it will send me blind in 5 seconds.
