No emoticon can express how I'm feeling right now!
I see 4 as a rewrite of the kernel and not an incremental increase.
If we take x.y.z as our version scheme then 4 is code base, y is feature and z is fixes. You can amend an additional octet for build number.
I appreciate that no one ever uses version numbering the way I envision it. I can't see the first octet being changed if you aren't doing a rewrite.
It makes Beirut look nice. Go the Strand and see the mall of the 70s with 4 open stores.
If you need directions the homeless and/or drug using folk will be all to happy to punch any part of you they like.
If learning is your thing, don't forget to miss Hugh Baird College. Ask for Charles Rothwell and say you're Gordon from Alive.
Do you mean the Prophet DuARTe?
I personally believe the biggest mistake that Microsoft made was not killing XP sooner. I had this discusion recently with a friend.
So I went from 3.11 to 95 then 3 years later I had 98. I then waited 2 years and I got ME (let's try and forget) which was such a huge mistake that XP was forced upon the world. So in 2001 I started using XP, not XP SP3 which some people are happily using now or XP64 SP2. Then the release schedule seemed to be extended, we had 6 years before Vista. I liked Vista, I had machines that could handle it. Then we waited a standard 2 years for 7. The release of 8 was 3 years later which is again a reasonable timeframe for updates.
So the problem is not that XP is awesome (it's not). It's that people got left alone with XP for 6 years. This would normally have seen 2 releases in this time, instead it saw none. This led to complacency in the market and has led to the problems now.
Remember, new is always better. They should have killed XP support in 2007 and have replaced it in 2004 in my opinion.
WOT anyone? I use it to check all links and don't bother with the red ones.
Post = "We are all going to die!";
I guess someone is having to eat a lot of biscuits.
I can't help wonder why they don't build SCIFs and the like. Something proven to block the outside world.
I was so excited, I never get these kinds of scammers calling me.
He had a thick Indian accent and I'd just got home from a business trip.
He told me he was calling from " The International Internet Router Team". He told me it was showing that I had slow internet speeds.
I played along with the dumb idiot and started with the "Oh, it has been slow" bit. Then after a few moments I asked where he was calling from again. He told me then "BT, TalkTalk or one of them".
I was up for a laugh, and asked which one. He sounded confused and then hung up.
You can install Gingerbread without Sense and have no issues.
To install Gingerbread with Sense you need an EXT3/4 partition, as there is no room for apps.
If HTC release with Sense, they might require a section of your memory card been used for ALL apps or more likely they will strip out much of Sense.
Your ext3/4 partition is what you're missing. Try using it without your memory card to hold ALL your apps.
Also S-OFF your Desire and you can change the partition tables.
For those who are saying they are running Gingerbread with Sense 2.1 witch such ROMs as RCMix.
Remember you have to have an EXT3/4 partition on your memory card. Without this it would be unusable.
Simple fact is that XP is too old. It was designed for an age before multiple cores were a common thing, before virtualisation was our friend.
Next argument will be about upgrading away from IE6.
If you want to use new services, expect to need new systems.
Every 5 year old knows not to stare directly into the Sun.
I feel like a terrorist.
I've had several guys add me on BBM randomly and ask if I'm a girl. Strangely they all delete themselves when I say "not anymore".
Spam is alive and well in the propriety IM world.
A half functional port of 3.1 is news? What about the works of RCTeam to port Sense 3.0 to the Desire HD? A phone that is HTC's Flagship only to be told it won't have the next iteration of Sense.
Just read the email from Dan where he says to read the article again.
Mine's the one with my glasses in the pocket.
Are they making this change server side or client side? I would presume this would be server side, as there are just too many variables to consider client side.
Paris, because there is no Google icon.
That looks like vomit. I actually think I'd die if I was near it.
If I put my email in "The Cloud" will it get wet?
Mine's the one with the hood, to keep me dry.
"the device connects to them by default" really?
I guess Wireless really isn't secure.
Paris, as her phone always leaks "personal" information.
If I delete the app from data/app or system/app will the button stop working? I assume I can map it to something else. This could lead to some amusing apps that remap the button.
Mine's the one with the HTC Desire HD running RCMix Kingdom v0.1 with Sense 3.0 with a Facebook button on the home screen.
Both the Desire and the Desire HD have S-ON. In both instances the protection has been broken and engineering bootloaders have been flashed to my handsets.
There is a great number of people who want to crack this, so just wait.
Books? They still have those. I thought they were all destroyed.
Mine's the one with the kindle in the pocket.
