itll still break. gorilla glass aint that good. My S3 has gorilla glass and guess what it smashed when dropped. however i want one
Looks like an outdated hyundai Lantra. which ever way you look at it. 41 mpg no thanks my beemer diesel does more than that on a bad day and is quick enough for me at 7secs 0-62.
This is back to american cars coming over here. Someone will buy it to be different then at trade in wonder why its only worth 300 quid. this thing will depreciate faster than a five yr old mondeo
And the interior looks decidely yuck and typical; nissan/ renault. with lots of buttons and sticky out bits.
Re: How much worse can it get?
never had an android unit crsh yet and im on my third. i just dont load rubbish apps on there which as usual are the cause of instability.
Re: Maybe, but ... (Laptops for wireless)
But your vaio Z is not running ios 10 is it.
Im no fan bois but id never go back to a windows laptop love my macbook air. it does everything i need fast and far quicker than most comparable windows machines and easier to configure printers and such like to. the only issue is BThome hubs dont like airplay. So i use my old Fujitsu lappy for that with media player
Ive recently got cause its that or nothing here, Virgin should be had as theyve not put any new fibre in since 1997 in the south. so how can they complain when there services are not even available here. ASA havent upheld that argument and i get 39.6 meg thank you very much before i was only offered 300k by virgin.
12ax/at7 or ecc83
anyone got a large stock of ECC83 and 84 or 12at/ax7 can make a killing here as there the mainstay of input transformers in valve guitar amps and reverb units. Big demand nowadays for valves my friends are far from dead in the outside world
I just bought the 24 inch version literally saturday. for my bedroom. So far superb picture but sounds a bit iffy. how ever fine with audio out through my little dennon all in one. so im happy.
Wouldnt bother with the rest of the crap.
I saw this last week when visiting london on a day out, it didnt occure to me that it had anything to do with the new sammy. why would it being the shop was shut and empty, and i wouldnt use p4u anyway.
Re: Corner shops not in the same market as big mail order
Also i wouldnt be suprised if when you order a dvd /cd from a corner shop there ordering from indigo starfish and adding a mark up for the privelidge.
and agree with most comments here 110m is less than the mod pay on vets bills a year.
Itll fall to pieces as soon as you put your foot down and wind in the hedge at the first hint of damp weather just like its predecessor the renault 17 turbo.
we were forever pulling them out of hedges when father was on recovery. it rained itll be a renault in the hedge
Torque steer and 150 is the limit in reality no such issues with RWD.
ford following again
As usual ford are following everyone else eventually all the optional tech such as road sign recognition remote sensing gadgetry self parking etc have all been about for years on german marques such as vw group,BMw and merc. its just the price for this tech has come down in price as par the course and now ford think its cheap enough to fit.
Fail when the same specced mondeo is the same price as a 3 series bmw or passat. and yet is under powered and less economical than the mondeo.
I like the idea of ford and there cars drive very well. but not at the same price as a bmw. and no i dont want the bottom of the range model thank you. Ill take an equivalent.
Iffy sound for 120 quid are you kidding. 50 to 80 sennheissers will trash these. how can they get 70% if they sound iffy. in essence 30 % would suffice in the real world.
Tdk are seen as cheap make nowadays no street cred anymore since the demise of good cassettes.
got DAB in my carReally not worth all the hassle as radio stations are limited outside london. and what is there is full of adverts during the day. planet rock was the only reason i got it but soon found that having it pumped at me all day soon got repetitive I wouldnt pay for a gadget that works occasionally due to signal dropouts and as for the ghastly aerial and extra widgets and boxes to be fitted im surprised 75% more like 50% at best
hmm not quite
Where is the new bmw 1 series beats the focus hands as all the gizmo items listed are optional for The BMW beats the focus hands down on kit, MPG power CO2 emmisions and handling.
And dont forget the beemer will be worth 60 % plus in 3 yrs the focus will be 5k at a push. and base price is not much more than the focus for the 116D SE
It takes over 100 years to grow a mature oak to the required standard i know where i was brought up there are a load which where planted for ship building in the 1700s and never used as the demand disspeared due to the arrival of the iron clads.
And any trees old enough will be protected by a preservation order so we will be importing from india.
So how come VM tivo then
Its not a new box just a software upgrade and then theres the small fact its useless to 90% of the country.
So as a service no its not up to the mark. Guessing VM paid more turnips for a glowing outdated by 10 yrs product which failed in the states in 1999.
Camera quality ??????
Sorry to say the photo samples look washed out and flat and grainy but nowhere in the article is that emphasised just spouting that great its an 8mp Camera whoop de doo. no good if the quality is this poor which is typical of HTC phones.
Had two never get another ill wait for the S3 thanks
no surprise there then
We have one of there office right next door.
And believe it or not its staffed by probably 90% or more Chinese origin. there are virtually no caucaseans working in there.
Twinhead adopted the same philosophy recruiting only from chinese communities in the early 90's.
How can 12 be an "r" most are just pointless anyway. still therll be appearing on a corsa and peugeots 208 near you soon.
theres a surprise
Saw this coming two years ago. Like the Wii which now sits under the telly gathering dust was a good idea at the time. I am not poking at just the ipad i think the whole fondleslab thing is flawed due to the lack of a decent usable keyboard.
ill stick with my FJ lifebook P8130 for a while longer.
not for me
I have a very nice and very expensive hifi. i love my music as long as they release back catalogue stuff fine. not interested in new stuff as there is only about 1% worth a damn.
My expensive CD player doesnt like ripped CDS so thats out and not overly keen on the ipod as my main source.
They drop CDS i stop buying there music i am sure the artists will have a say when they see there revenues drop.
I like tangible. What happens when my pc dies / ipod / Backup dies i lose my digital music Still got my cds for the insurance company if we have a fire etc.
I am guessing the removal of there OBE will be forth coming. hope it was worth it and boy shed have to pay me, shes looks rough.
But then i wouldnt by her overpriced alibaba sourced trash thats what 14 year olds do.
and another reason
Not to buy a PS3 no matter how
Went in yesterday
Looking for a particular item so pooped into my sony store. Dunno why complete waste of time. Issues arise when products go wrong to as they will only send back for repair not replace even straight out of the box.
Wont buy Sony again. When my TV surround sound and playstation die thats it.
However I prefer there MP3 players to crap pods. Audio quality beats apple hands down.
As the S2 is on most tarriffs as free phone where as the crapple is contract plus handset charge i dont see the S2 as emptying that many pockets as quick as apple. Also its better phone go figure.
Try both. Then youll see and take the blinkers off.
as usual we get stuffed
Outskirts of basingstoke still get a laughable half meg at best and no plans to upgrade.
Why not tackle the really bad areas firsat and bring everyone up to the minimum recommended by the goverment of 2meg and ill be happy
No TV on demand etc for me
I work for fujitsu too
My colleagues who are in the Unite union do not even know about these strikes therefore its safe to assume they were not balloted.
Fujitsu employees have had a 3 yr pay freeze and no bonus's to most employees either.
Most of the union mebers are warehouse staff not site staff so wont affect the customers too much. Every one i know in this organisation would not do something to harm customer relationships and t would be unheard of for a long time employee to strike or picket a customer site.
Those who will are generally Tupe'd from the civill service who couldn't care a less as long as they keep there pensions and bonuses etc. seen and met to many to count. then bitch how good it was beofre yet this is there former employer who screwed them over. go figure.
a lot of the problems we have are not generated by the private sector but are the first reactions following the goverment cuts and the fact theres little to money around or new contracts being awarded at the moment.
Eh labour introduced this
and set out the way it will operate. so the whole idea was a spin to make labour look like they hadn't lost the plot and where trying to be in touch with its electorate.
They probably hoped it would quietly die after the election.
Shame as in essence it was a good idea and mean't we didnt need to try and convice our MP's that our causes where true and just and held a majority support .
Great idea in principle if your near a set of lockers and out in that area. However I get my goodies delivered to work therefore no need to go get. Oh heres comes the post man now delivered straight to my desk.
However I have used these sort of hings in american theme parks. Who will be on hand when the codes dont work etc as usually happens wasted trip then a load of emails etc later.
Sammy dont supply apple
No one supplies apple direct except foxconn and finished product. As stated Apple dont make anything.
Samsungs contracts will be for supply of components to Foxconn and licensed to apple for the use in ipad / iphone screens.
Its all BS I love my galaxy S and next phone will be an S2 or S3. I can spot a iphones a mile away and I know there differences visually. yeah thee sort of the same but so is Sony and LG phones. The judges need to put there glasses back on and look properley and lets have some competition to get better products else we all gonna be stuck with the same 1 product.
A sub woofer and nine speakers
1500 quid for an OTT trebly system. No thanks Ive never liked bose its for people who dont know what musical instruments actually sound like.
Audi have been fitting bose for years Its only the amp and speakers but running the same crappy head units as standard cars. My previous car was an Audi A6 With bose.
Listen to a cymbal live or bass its not that fizzy searing sound at all or heavey thump. the instruments should blend together to form the overall sound.
My Bmw 1 series with Hifi upgrade has 10 speakers and 2 subs and is as close to my home HIFI as it can be in a harsh enviroment and no the home system is no cheap system from dixons The speakers are 4.5K alone.
I wouldn't buy a renault unless I prefered to walk as i'd be woried about bits falling off as i drove up the road.
Comfy seats though. Like sitting in your favourite armchair.
Lets face dads will buy for the wife because of the Bose not the car itself. The wife will want it cause its good for the 100m school run around here.
Hmm Railway system and new technologies
Love to see the safety case on this one. I suspect no Safety case advisor would accept such new technology on a safety critical system. So is this a ticketing system and back office only which would require no intrinsic safety systems.
Same drug companies differnt countries
Clearly the US druges are marked up as many that i have seen are the same drugs same companies but just cheaper across the border.
Therfore ppromting at a cheaper price the only people cutting there own throats is the drug companies as they sell the same drug cheaper in canada. Urghh go figure.
Clearly the loss of trade is to do with lost taxes import or local variety.
Any know how much mark up the US goverment applies to Pharma companies. Like petrol here in the uk some 80+% is taxes.
bah Super fast cranbrook
Try Chineham near basingstoke, We are lucky to get an average of 3-400K and no chance of any more.
Some times is as low as 200k. To add insult recently Bt upgraded one side of the road but not ours. and then only upgraded two or three streets on the north side of the a33 south side got nothing.
After an exhaustive investigation I discovered it aint DVD region free so ill just buy a cheap DVD player and forget a three in one Games machine and save $150 for beer tokens. and stick with me PS2 I only play ratchet and clank anyway.
Nah Therell get sued
Remember the LG shine was for this very purpose. (shame the phone was Cr*p. My daughter insisted on having it cause it was girly and shiny.)
Lg would have a field day I suspect theres a patent on "The mirror" finish and we all know how well Apple likes to tow the line on Patent infringement.
nope mine where not fakes
Bought two pairs at different times and both from reputable companies both sound the same . one pair where 30 odd quid the second where £13
They fit my ears perfectly with the smaller buds and they isolate beutifully on a 10 hour flight to orlando. I suspect the previous guy got fakes or had the wrong buds fitted. And i get no noise when i move.
Shop around they can be had for a reasonable amount.
Love my CX300 II
I have a couple of pairs of these and the Goldring 200s I love my CX's Perfect for my type of music. especially on MP3.
The goldrings are too Trebly and clinical the CXs are warmer. Dont need to spend more and the last set of CX's cost me £13. Bargain
