Re: Meanwhile in America
+1 for the Bottom reference.
Great idea but not sure about using for PG.
I don't fancy getting my paraglider lines caught up in that lot. GoPro bad enough for line snagging risk factor.
Also, from a pg point of view, if you're trying to get perfect smooth shots from a helmet cam then you're probably not keeping a good enough lookout all around you.
I'm sure these would be brilliant for other activities though. Ones without strings and necks involved.
Looks like 'Mothership' from Homeworld.
40Meur seems like bugger all for such a project.
Nothing to do with glassholes
Are you related to Andy Zaltsman?
That is all.
I'm going to choose the bottom one, BIG ENDER. Thanks FB.
Excellent sub headline Reg. Not read the article yet just thought i'd congratulate you first.
Re: Design question
What is the plan for attaching to a helmet? Is there a weak link designed in? Coming from a paragliding background, the gopro is really a 'line catcher' and an accident waiting to happen. See the vimeo link for an example http://vimeo.com/81812852
Contour cameras at least have a weak link design with their rail system which seems to work quite well.
Well done for getting this project this far along.
Pipe - Check
Cup of tea - Check
Yep, all seems to be in order.
+1 for headline writing El Reg.
I used to work for Phoenix IT subcontracted to BT. Truly a comedy of errors.
Re: For shame
I think LG are suggesting that he accepted the t&c. Somewhere deep in the small print is the permission to collect the data.
I think you'll find its 'Lexi'.
Thanks Alan Partridge.
Re: The James Windmill design
The Andy McDonald design for understated Britishness looks pretty good too.
No idea if this would work but.......
I may be missing the ability of NFC tags but going back to a previous topic of robo mowers. What if you stuck(buried just below surface) NFC's all over your lawn and logged the location of each tag. You could use either gps although domestic gps is probably not accurate enough or just manually mow the lawn once so the mower knows which tags are near edges or middle of the lawn etc.
Once the mower knows which tags are where relative to your lawn area, it will always know where it is. Joining the NFC 'dots' on the lawn, the mower could navigate its way back to any point for charging, emptying etc.
Just a thought
Re: I disagree...
+1 for headline excellence.
Keep it going Reg.
Re: Not in the mood to swap phones anymore
Funnily enough,, i've just come to the same conclusion. Gone onto a SIM only deal and keeping my Galaxy S2. Now its running android 4.2.2 it's stable and plenty fast enough.
Re: Remember when?
Pepperridge Farm remembers.
Ah, yes. Sorry thought the Nexus was a tablet. I'll go back to bed.
I thought 4.2.2. was supposed to introduce user accounts. 2 or more people could unlock the device and have everything setup their way.
Gerry Anderson would be proud
Please tell me it's missing a high 'T-tail' and the cockpit is going in the tail section.
Fireflash was such a great looking idea. As i child, i really couldn't understand why passenger jets a) never looked this cool b) weren't nuclear powered.
Re: Form over function.. again
Apart from CC which i loved I also fondly remember Midwinter on my Amiga. The picture and description on the box really piqued my interest.
One feature of Midwinter i remember being impressed by was the water effect. It had moving polygon waves at the shoreline. It was the first time i had seen animated water instead of a blue coloured block to represent water.
I'm currently struggling with the CC reboot. To me it still has the feel of the old CC (good) with pretty good light and water effects. Its just a shame about the walrus routing on land and the poorly realised on-foot sections of the game.
Anyway, thanks to the efforts of Mike Singleton I have fond memories of early gaming.
Are they very sure it isn't a speaker?
That is all
Re: Bum gardener.....hee hee hee hee
2 thumbs down already? Perhaps I need to vet my puerile humour more rigorously and go and read some more Alain de Botton.

Re: no thanks
There are quite a few potential customers out there that hardly use their phones for voice but email/netflix/fb/internet; they can't justify buying a separate tablet type device due to cost; Its bigger than a phone but a small enough tablet to put in your pocket. I can see the appeal.
Also some people are giants. I work with one such behemoth and this will appear normal sized in his shovel like hands.
Can someone tell me how the pen is kept in place and whether the mechanism will wear to the point of uselessness over a 2 year contract?
I have memories of my old M2000 where the friction keeping the pen secure failed after a year. Turn the phone upside down and out fell the pen.
Its all about perspective
It's an iPhone 5. The hand in the first shot is just very, very small.
Paris: She's crying as she has just watched the "these are small, those are far away" episode of Father Ted and is struggling to understand the concept.
Good shortlist Reg, thanks
That is all.
Re: What about Chocky?
Agreed. I have great memories of Chocky and Chocky's Children on childrens TV. I remember finding it quite disturbing as a child.
Re: System storage???
Totally agree. My wife had the Wildfire S and while she loved the size, the storage left for apps was tiny. I think there were around 20 apps installed, perhaps less. Even shoving everything onto the SD card wasn't enough. Eventually the thing had to go as there was no space left to complete app updates.
Storage then became a make or break decision in buying the replacement phone so having that info listed here would be useful to potential buyers.
Paris: Shes upset by her own inability to do anything useful too.
So did you ask the CERN boffin....
....when we can expect a handheld zero point energy field manipulator? I've just removed a bathroom at home and there's a toilet just asking to be launched at someone.
Call me a cynic....
Give it a couple of years and good ol' George will re-release "classic" versions of this hi-def box set with all the subtle plot changes removed. BINGO! A couple more million in the bank as fans clamor to get their hands on versions they know and love.
Paris: Wiping away a tear of frustration as she struggles to keep up with the films storyline.
Good budget option
My wife bought the wildfire S to replace her HTC legend.
Well made phone and feels really solid. Great 2g/3g/wi-fi reception compared with the legend with pretty good call quality. The Wildfire S seems to have roughly the same radio performance as my HTC Desire.
Processor speed is respectable just dont plan on using live wallpapers. These kill the framerate not surprisingly.
Headphones in the box are rubbish and PAYG included a 2gig micro sd card.
I think you'll find Cornwall divorced Newquay in around 1995 citing irreconcilable differences. Newquay still denies any problem with the relationship and insists it is still "as Cornish as ever."
The rest of Cornwall disagrees saying, "We used to get on so well with Newquay. It was beautiful, funny and charming, but things just change. Now it has really dumbed down and hangs around with a different crowd. Imagine having Jeremy Kyle as a neighbour and he is shouting in your face.........for ever. You can understand why we divorced."
The rest of the county is currently considering court action against the north coastal town banning it from ever getting in contact again.
Relationship counsellors have set up blind dates between Essex and the estranged sea-side town. Essex was keen and thought Newquay was 'a good laugh' but Newquay just wants to be with Cornwall dispite all objections.
