Re: Really compelling devices like the Lumia 925 and perhaps the “Real PureView” 1000
I agree with you on the high end devices but i recently purchased a Nokia 520 on a PAYG for £119, no android device would come close to the spec's of the 520 in camera ad screen size.
Re: Sonos is the (expensive) way forward
After yours and the previous post I went and had a look at the Sony kit, as i want to expand my room coverage from the single Sonos3 i have at the moment.
Just a couple of downsides looking at the website, single source of music (no spotify or napster for those inclined) but the biggy for me, no FLAC support.
Re: old and tired comments
Well the missus has the ipad2 and recently went from a 3gs to a 4s and I feel it all looks ably antiquatedwith having to clickon one of the 16 icons to get ur news feed or tweets and emails, nice to turn on and have it presented to you on the screen.
... for showing of an old and tired looking OS.
Big resolution but still a 4 x 4 grid array, gonna keep my ICS TF101 thanks.
yep... I know fandroid here but i am wrong in thinking iOS needs a function/GUI update?
2.3.4 is what firmware unbranded sgs2 are stuck at the moment, like mine from t mobile. I hAve already rooted my month old phone, and reset the count to 0 and removed warning triangle. Just couldn't live without root.
same on the xbox
its exactly the same with the latest game I bought for the xbox, "cough" Space Marine had a unique code in the box, that i used and if anyone wanted to progress in the online mulitplayer would need to fork out $10 if they havent the code.
and thats on a system where you have to pay!
i know you shouldnt have to but.....
rooting the phone and getting a custom hBoot and ROM gives the HTC desire much more life.
Imagine this.... I have 400MB+ of apps and the phone says I have 187MB free.
Just a bad design of the desire which was fixed in all newer releases.
Saying that...... i'll be trying a different android manufacturer, just to see how green the grass is.
farewell n thanks
I remember the days when you had to call them to order my region 1 dvds, (dare i admit it was bugs life). ah well all good things n that.
I guess it wont be the same under new owners and the tax law change.
I have tried the amazon app, (due to the free apps they give away) but of course not working in the UK yet.
...yep i was a freetard.
I downloaded their album for nothing.... really liked what i heard and purchased it once it was in the shops.
and then went onto buying their previous releases. (mind its the studio gets the money for them)
grrr at in game purchases
Totally agree with you there..... I know its on a tangent but I finished playing TF2 as soon as they brought in ...erm in game purchases to get an advantage.
Wonder if thats the future for PC games.
