Chucking cash at sport and broadband starts to pay off for BT

<spez>

this.

Only reason i have the line is for (narrow) broadband, the home telephone hasn't been used in years.

Any alternatives in a rural area?

I remember seeing 3 do a homehub kind of thing some years back, (on 3 mobile i get 12Mbps rather than 4.5 when using my wifi)

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.

Review: Pure Jongo S3 multiroom speakers

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: Limitations?

I tether my Asus transformer to my phone it works well, you'll get booted though as soon as you use an app that reports itself as a desktop, such as Dolphin Browser.

Re: Free on Getjar

Had this a while from getjar, but its a pain to manually check or redown load to get bug fixes and updates, so I thought its worth a punt of 20p just for the ease of update through market, I mean play

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.

far too expensive

times have moved on and for a game to warrant x10 price of a good(?) iOS game, its gotta be amazing!

but nice to see competition and more choice.

45% of Android users to upgrade to rival phone OSes

<spez>
Thumb Up

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.
