The PC is dead. Gartner wishes you luck, vendors

J. R. Hartley

Times have changed

I spent a grand (through a staff purchase scheme) on a top spec i7 PC, two GFX cards, and three delightful monitors.

I won't be buying a new PC ever again.

Re: New Order

Interesting question. That graphic was already in the public domain, so knowing Factory they probably lost money on it somehow.

GDS has no real strategy for £450m budget pot, internal plan reveals

J. R. Hartley

I want in

These government contracts are great. Just charge whatever you want, take as long as you want, never mind if it doesn't work cos nobody understands what you're trying to do anyway, and there's always the next one.

I need a piece of that action.

A 'hundred million' Truecaller users vulnerable to privacy bug, security bod says

J. R. Hartley

STAY OUT OF MY PHONE BOOK, APPS!

Sometimes I notice apps like Twitter, Telegram etc etc will send me a notification telling me 'one of my contacts' has joined. And it freaks me the fuck out.

I have numbers saved including 'Who', 'Avoid', 'Who the fuck', 'Randomer', and 'Whos this'. I don't want those people in my fucking life.

Ever wondered what the worst TV show in the world would be? Apple just commissioned it

J. R. Hartley

Streaming services are a joke

Apple TV, Sky Q, NowTV, Amazon, the lot of them are crap.

The only one showing any promise is Roku, the independent, and even then it looks like they aren't gonna bother releasing the Roku 4 in the UK. That's no doubt Sky using their stake in Roku to stop them releasing it here as it will compete directly with Now TV etc.

I, for one, don't want a seperate box for each different content provider.

Most egregious.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge: Betting on VR with a dash of Vulkan

J. R. Hartley

Re: So long, Sony! And thanks for all the glitchy firmware.

I'm not so sure... Loved my Galaxy S2, never had any problems with it. Also, I much prefer TouchWiz to the abomination that is the Z1. I know I am the only one, but it is what it is :/ :/

So long, Sony! And thanks for all the glitchy firmware.

Ordered a Galaxy S7 Edge last night, gets delivered on 8th March apparently. Can't wait to get rid of this unfathomably shite Xperia Z1 once and for all. Never been so excited about the launch of a phone before. I'LL BE ABLE TO CONNECT TO MY VAN WITH BLUETOOTH AND EVERYTHING WOOHOO!!!

Re: The title is no longer required

My Xperia Z1 was a mistake right from the start, even the screen looks terrible compared to my old Galaxy S2. I also must be the only person who prefers Touchwiz over stock Android. An OS update a few months back has only made everything worse. I will never own another Sony product again, that much is true for sure.

The title is no longer required

I, for one, am holding out for the Galaxy S7, which I will be buying outright for the first time, thus eliminating the last piece of Sony from my life. I will get the cheapest SIM only deal and that will be me off the contract treadmill forever. There is no longer a need to upgrade a phone every two years, this one is gonna be a keeper. Can't fucking wait.
