Google lifts skirts, reveals Play All Access to UK market

skinnymatt

I tried it

And thought it was pretty good, add to library works well and the 'radio' stuff is OK too. I already used Google Music so it a natural step.

For £8 you get offline access to all the music that you have added to your library in the mobile and desktop clients. This is slightly cheaper than Spotify's service.

Need a nice way of integrating this into my Hi-Fi. Simplest is PC with browser -> USB DAC (HRT Music Streamer II) -> Amp. But would be nice to use Android as remote control.

Deep, deep dive: Hyper-V

Re: Does MS support the installation....

Yes, it's built in to Server 2012. You can team across cards of different vendors if you like. Supports LACP, or switch independent modes.

They are just taking the piss now

I think this is just willy waggling in Apple's face. "Look at us! You can't even get basic directions and locations correct and we're mapping the underside of the frikkin' sea!"

And long may Google keep at this, too.

Re: Remote Control

Windows now has a WinRS (remote shell), for all your remote text-based login needs! It's not enabled by default, you have to first configure WinRM - easiest way = winrm quickconfig

You have also got remote PoSH too if you want it.

Google pushing Jelly Bean updates to Android devices

Re: Can you use Jelly Bean without a Google Account?

Yes - the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) does not contain any of the Google applications. Not a great experience though.

LG pitches £7k 55in OLED TV, again

Wall mount?

I do hope you can wall mount this thing, not that I can afford the 7 big ones required mind...

Samsung says 55in OLED über TV 'ready'

skinnymatt

Re: Want!

To be clear - I want it for the superb colour gamut, grayscale accuracy, response times, low power usage, etc. - not the 2 TVs in 1 feature.

UI Design

This app should be a shining example of how to design an app for Android. I have not seen it on a tablet interface, but on my 720p Galaxy Nexus it is awesome. Simple, clean, intuitive. Fantastic work.

That Brit-built £22 computer: Yours for just £1,900 or more

I also like

I am a huge fan of the RasPi project.. even if the price of the 'B' is going to be around £50, they are still a bargain. I have LOADS of uses dreamed up for these things, from home automation to auto distribution.

The hope is that these things will go on to be as (more?) ubiquitous as the BBC Micro. I hope they manage it. If they do achieve this then it will be great to own a bit of history associated with the project. I'm not bidding though..

cyanogenmod

Cyanogenmod 7 runs on the desire. Ok, there's no Sense, but it's no great loss.

For thosethat don't know, CM is based on the Android open source project and currently runs 2.3.4, the latest Gingerbread.

re:A good question

I always thought Virgin HD looked a bit rubbish. Now I have a reason why. Thanks.

I have the hard top and a week's worth of luggage and a laptop will fit in the boot fine.
