GoPro's new lens: Like a GOOGLE STREETMAPS car... for your life

John Nieurzyla
FAIL

Dont bother

Unfortunately, if its Google, then the odds of it being supported etc in the future is very dismal. It has the reputation of starting something, but never completing it. ie. Google Earth, its started about 14 years ago? and 2/3rds of Philippines is still waiting to be covered, and that 1/3rd that was covered most of it has not been renewed, so the views are over 7 years old, absolutely useless unless you live in Manila, it appears nothing else counts.

When the storm happened in Cebu area last year, we asked for upto date images to assist in locating and accessing the outside areas, All that Google released were two images of the ocean near here!!!

And Philippines is not the only country that was not covered correctly.

Google deletes Maps satellite photos of 14-year-old's unsolved murder

John Nieurzyla

Google sh*te

Google never finish what they promise when starting projects.

Google Earth was supposed to map the earth, and then update these images every 3-4 years, well Philippines has never been completed, about 1/3 has been done, and most of these images are 10 to 13 years old.

Now with all these terrible tragedies happening here, there are no maps of roads systems we can use, as they have never been mapped, They did update 3 sections after the recent typhoon, but two sections were of a different island which was not badly damaged, it was seriously over exposed and the majority of it was the ocean. Totally useless.

But how many times has the US been scanned??

And Bing maps are even less apparent....

BlackBerry Black Friday: $1bn loss as warehouses bulge with hated Z10s

John Nieurzyla

Not surprised

To be honest I feel it is their own fault, they never listened to what their customers wanted, but though they were market leaders, but were blinkered by their own life style, did n ot notice what was going on around them till it was too late. Shame as I used to like the handset, but the software let them down.

Microsoft hits DHL with $2m lost Xbox action

John Nieurzyla
Thumb Down

Its about time DHL got sued.

Its about time DHL got their assed kicked, I live in Asia, and when I order items from abroad it has to be delivered by courier, otherwise it get "lost".

Businesses designate who the courier is unfortunately so I get stuck with DHL due to the price, the packages arrive in Manila, then it can take 7 days to travel 50 kms down the road to here.

Why, cos to save money they use local delivery companies and then it goes walkabouts, they do not have tracking here, customer service is a laugh, they never respond, nothing is ever done, You can't complain to DHL fatherland, they will not respond either, as I am outside Germany. Having lost countless deadlines on delivery and the occassional package, I am so pleased this has happened, I only wish they would read this as well.

Sony to bring E Ink eBook reader to UK in September

John Nieurzyla
Paris Hilton

Why?

I read a lot of books, and I find that the prices from the Ebook shops is comparable if not more expensive than the local shops selling paperbacks, but I do not use a book reader but my Ipod, which fits in my pocket, can access the internet on the street, connects to my pc, do my emails, can be used late at night to read without the light on, and costs less than most of these so called specialist items.

But it would also be nice to have Hilton at night as well.

Pentax Optio Z10 digital camera

John Nieurzyla
Flame

Not happy

I have an optio bought 6 months ago, it did not last two weeks, the rear view screen cracked, I'm still unable to get it repaired, no spare screens available apparently.

I also have a pocket kodak with rear screen, which has been in the same pocket for 2 years its screen never damaged, I wonder if in-built non-warranty damage???

As usual no response or comment from Pentax.

So I will not touch another pentax with rear screen just in case. Let buyer beware.

EU aims to stop 'visa shopping'

John Nieurzyla

Cherry picking

Typical UK, cherry picking the bits it likes from the EU, it should either be in or out, it just shows its like the US government where it has more faces then Big Ben, then always moving the goal posts afterwards.

PSP patent gets gadget geeks guessing

GPS

I was hoping it was Sony getting its act together and making with a GP{S add on more true mobility and help. It one of the few with a decent battery life where it would actually work.
