A downvote for moaning about a downvote!
I liked the one in Trafalgar Square with the giant flock of pigeons that fly into the sky when he shouts HELLO!!!
Nah, that's Visio.
To an extent you can, though you might have to click something onscreen in place of using a keyboard shortcut (or touch it, a lot faster). The Ctrl C/Ctrl V is the only bit that irritates me, really.
Going hands-on with a tablet is the best way you'll find out what you can/can't live with, though.
1) Yes, you get a mouse pointer when using the trackpad.
2) Keyboard commands don't generally work. There's a row of buttons similar to Fn commands on a laptop that can be used, but shortcuts such as Alt-Tab or Ctrl+C/V won't work.
If you're switching between tasks, you can go into the 'menu' icon that persistently stays on screen and select an app that's already open from there (or go to the home screen and reopen it, if it's already open, it just switches to it).
Grab a TF201 lead, it's thankfully longer than the TF101's lead - I remember having the same problem with it.
Which is why you have a keyboard dock with a trackpad on it.
The original Transformer charger was USB 3 too, doubt they'd change it on this one.
Already done - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1603921
It does require root access which currently means calling up Asus to get it unlocked and thereby officially invalidating the warranty (unlike the original Transformer).
Followed by any IM programs, presumably.
Well, I don't think I'll bother screwing with my laptop screen anytime soon. The company that set it up for me went bankrupt a while ago (Kobalt) and it's out of warranty by now anyway.
I'm hoping it lasts quite a while longer so I don't have to shell out another £1000+ for an equivalent custom build.
Heh, that would be nice. I have the same model of laptop.
Well, 'love' is certainly one word for it.
Yeah, that doesn't work as the cable modem provides its own DNS too. There's no way to turn it off on the cable modem as it is completely locked down.
I wish I could, I'm stuck with an old cable modem that doesn't allow a DNS change at the moment.
Still, that'll need to be swapped out soon enough in order to accommodate the latest upgrade in speed on the minimum packages (a Motorola modem from 2001 will only last so long!)
A lot of the Toshiba netbooks were tacky even for netbooks, anyway.
A portable version? So, you don't work in a place that locks down the allowed device categories that you can stick into a USB port?
Well, that explains the server load problems, then.
Yeah, it was. This is a separate analysis by a security firm.
The man must be a celebrity in the anti-virus world.
Do you have a time machine on offer to allow these people to follow this command?
I'm struggling to figure out whether the Stephen Fry bit is real or not.
Then again, as it involves Fry it probably is real.
"Sadly for Britain's lawmakers, anyone with an ounce of tech knowledge knows exactly how to evade such an online blockade – a fact seemingly lost on some politicians"
I think they just stick their fingers in their ears and hum loudly whenever anyone reminds them of that.
Looks like EA can't make its mind up.
So much for Vowelgrm, then.
A giant of technology!
And nothing else.
It's otherwise known as the Silicon Roundabout.
I preferred that name.
Did the Design Museum really just award a design award to something they termed as having as little design as possible?
Words fail me.
You'd set it up so some people go to lunch and then when those people return, the others go to lunch, obviously.
To be fair, the N version thing was an EU stipulation.
Same at Heathrow, they've always been fenced off whenever I've been through there.
For the same reason everyone always wants the newest version of anything, of course. It's a free update with improvements and people want to try it out.
And I think Google have been updating old versions up to a point. Manufacturers and telcos slow the update process down by wanting to 'test' everything before it goes OTA, though.
Hershey produce Cadbury's Creme Eggs in the US? Poor America.
All the stuff you have mentioned nominates it as a good film, not the worst film!
Well, apart from Gibson.
They'd probably take the freebie off you too, then!
Pretty much offsets the freebie you get for attending, doesn't it?
It connects in the USA - no surprises there as that is where Apple is based.
Presumably because this article covers Australia where a 4G network of sorts is available?
Who comes up with these names?
I can only assume they got it second-hand from someone who read http://blog.bioware.com/2012/03/21/4108/ and made a few assumptions.
"Game publishers Bioware are due to release an officially sanctioned alternative ending to the game in April."
That seems to be an overly positive spin on the old paraphrasing. Muzyka said they were working on 'content initiatives' and there would be more news in April, that's all.
Considering the reliability and quality of Toshiba kit, that's almost a good deal.
Probably, yes. The sales have already been on for a couple of weeks, though.
How many people really own Android phones (or other smartphones) and not set some sort of lock be it password, PIN or otherwise on them?
At least some of that is directly underneath the streets, so I'm not that surprised the signal can penetrate.
Oh, the irony.
Servers might be a good start on changing the default password - you'd hope most people had at least realised that.
You don't need logic when you're Jeremy Clarkson either.
They asked the unemployed/those searching for new jobs whether they would be reskilling?
Seems like a slightly skewed sample, there.
To be able to use this, you have to plug it into something else...so, is this really much better than having a bootable USB stick with a linux distro on it in practice?
