Question? Can you tether a GPS receiver using bluetooth?
I tether a GPS to my old nokia as I use a version of TOM - TOM from 12 years ago.
As soon as the HD bootloader is unlockable and the clever devs compile a workable ICS \ JB rom then the HD is a great purchase. Until then it's best to avoid.
Re: What an idiot
Tablex is a table top manufacturer, unless of course you are suggesting that android users want to mount their superior devices in a piece of furniture. If so, then all is good and I now fully understand the issue that you have raised. Tablex can seem quite a costly solution, but I understand it has a lovely finish.
What a crock
This is another fine example of Apples rumour type advertising.
This creates artificial demand for the device you can't actually put in your pocket.
Yet people will suck this up and think, gee I had better get one now, and sleep outside a store, crapping in a bag and eating nothing but peperarmis for a week.
If I had a quid for every patent court case I have read about on here I would have lots of quids.
Although, I believe Apple would want a £1.10 fee for each quid I got,

Anger doesn't cover it!
The whole point of books is the sharing of knowledge, that's why we have libraries. The publisher doesn't care if I lend my book to my mother-in-law. They actually want me to lend the latest Chris Brookmyre to her, as they know she will then start buying the back catalogue (you should too)
So what the hell is this tax dodging scum company doing? The only people they are protecting is themselves. They do not have the publishing houses best interests at heart, if they did they wouldn't squeeze them for every penny. The average profit that a publisher gets on a £10 book is between 80p and £1.60 (read the guardian article) They do not have the UK tax mans best intrest at heart, they charge full 20%vat but don't actually give it to the tax man.
In a nut shell, Amazon is a deplorable tax dodging rip off merchant that doesn't actually deserve any UK customers.
Surely if VM and BT wanted to cable these areas they would of done it by now.
The fact that they haven'y suggests a few things. 1. it's not profitable, 2. it's not profitable, and 3. They have two many biscuits and are spending all their time eating biscuits rather than upgrading their infrastructure.

It's a phone without the phone for the price of a phone. A sort of phoney phone without an RCA that should be a cinch to connect.
So it's a phoney phone without a phono that should easily connect to phono with the rights leads.

Re: Zut Allors
Non, je voulais dire de ciseaux. Bien que je doute qu'elle ne pouvait faire confiance à une ceinture de sécurité non plus.
Cette femme est clairement un idiot. Des gens comme cela ne devrait pas se fier à l'aide de ciseaux de sécurité.
Just what we need
yet another online market place for apps.
How long before we have a hypermarket?
When I ran a pub my interview questions usually had a Bond question in it, either best Bond or best Bond gadget.
Basically if they couldn't answer the finer points of Bond then they couldn't deal with some of my more awkward customers. These days the IT interview question is which is better, Tizer or Dr Pepper. I like to think that this is still Bond relevant as Tizer should be an acronym for a bond gadget and Dr Pepper should be an American female agent, all busty and lusty.
*beer icon, as this proves I need one
When I had my business this was considered a fair tariff.
NO call out fee
Fixed hourly rate - £30 for joe public, £50 for businesses, £20 for charities
Up front peripheral charges - cost of invoice + 15% + tax (depending on where purchased)
Your bleak outlook on how businesses operate is quite quite wring
I watched and thought the same as you all. That's not a fault as such but it should of been spotted by the "engineer" It made me quite angry, as my own home repair business failed, and mainly because I wasn't ripping off people. I refused to con people, and refused to profiteer.
The interview that was carried out in front of the slime balls solicitor was humorous though, I just hope that idiots like that are run out of dodge!
Glad I am not the only one
My IT clutter was at it's very best in 2006. All the old useful bits from my failed business, all the donations from my customers and friends. Sometimes you have to ask yourself if you actually need 13 network cards. In 2007 I moved counties and was able to give the kit of yesteryear to a mate who also was a dumping ground for obsolete kit.
Fast forward to 2012, hows my clutter?
erm... 5 laptops, several routers, seemingly hundreds of USB gadgets and more 40GB drives than I want to think about. And that's just the stuff I know about.
*fail icon, because I assured the wifey that it would all go.
We would like to apologise to samsung, we said you copied us, but were wrong. Your product is legally not cool.

This looks like a turkey to me!
Do emails count as advertising? As whenever I receive one from Ebuyer it usually states a product and a price in the subject, but the price is usually for a different offer.
Electricity first, if nothing else to scare the hedge mumpers.
Just to look at basic tax information I counted 7 mouse clicks. This website is the IVR of the web world, and as such can only give it a score of 6/10
Re: Boris S. you don't seem to understand...
No one needs the inferior crap produced in Japan be it Apple branded, Microsucks, Acer or Foxconn - to name just a few
Just as well it's manufactured in China then, or did all the references to China somehow display as Japan? If so, that would be the Chinese manufactured display you are using. maybe you should send it off for repair to a factory in China so that a Chinese worker can repair it.

Not just for McKinnon but for all citizens of the UK. The extradition balance needed to be addressed. It's the first thing that hapless May has got right.
Re: Not consequential
I think by posting messages on compromised computers about how piss poor the security was shows that he was aware of what he was doing, and who he was doing it to.
He has to be seen by the authorities that he is held to account for his actions, but the Americans justice system is considerably harsher than the UK's.
At the time it was only alleged to of infringed patents, it had not been to patent court to have this proved. Whilst I am sure they had a good case the fact remains that for a year the software was not been sold on the App store. Put simply in Daily Mail terms
Won't somebody think of the children.
Nice to hear that this is over and the development team can now get back to supporting this app. At the time I called apple a bunch of twunts for suspending the app, I still stand by those comments. Only because I think this could of been handled in a better way.
Time to bring production and jobs back
You will never bring Jobs back. He's dead Jim, dead!
GREAT! NEW! MAYBE! YAHOO! WILL! IMPROVE! SOON!
Re: Where's the balloon gone ?
They landed the capsule, as it was rather expensive and very re-usable. Unsure what they did with the balloon.

When they were going through the final check-list and he was moving his chair I was all sweaty palmed. Why was I nervous, I was sat on a comfy sofa eating crisps.

I am going to ditch Google and say hello Apple after my appalling attempt to get a nexus - wrong consignment number, no tracking, still waiting for refund.
I mean, the customer services for Apple can't be any worse can they?
Re: Dear Reg,
And while your at it can you remove the acronym RBS and give it its full title, as well as stating National Westminster bank, trading as NatWest.
Oh, on second thoughts don't bother. I've just remembered that I have a life.
Maybe if Apple hadn't dropped Samsung as their screen maker.
