FIERY DEATH awaits all who stroke mobes mid-flight? Nope, says FAA

nichobe

This article read a little different

FAA to allow use of electronic devices during 'all phases' of flight

Passengers will be able to keep phones on, although they must be set to 'airplane mode' or have cellular service disabled

This really irks me. Page voting inline would be a huge plus. It also would stop it asking you to log in after each vote.

posting pages to google+

When posting links to ElReg articles to google+ an image appears that has no relevance to the article. A quick X dismisses it but it would be nice to include the correct pic when posting.

example

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/04/07/windows_xp_two_years_until_support_ends/

not sure if its a Register or Google+ issue but it should be looked into.

Top articles - keep up the good work.

Google Drive IOS or Dropbox

nichobe
Meh

Neither preferred...

~I have both and use them for different things however, the first one to allow unlimited local syncing with cloud optional will get my vote.

I don't want to pay for storing everything in the cloud, only the stuff i want.

I would like to use my various computers in various locations to retain redundancy.

Currently testing AeroFS and Cubby which look promising.

Re: What I don't get

No! The problem is vendor lock in. Google should make it rather than Samsung so then at least all the other Android phones and tablets could use it also

iTunes isn't perfect but it is a great media player

iTunes sits on my Media center PC and cranks out the beats with 1080p album art and visualisation. I can control it from iPad/iPhone/iTouch/Android Phone/Tablet. My guests can connect to the party mode with all their devices to queue songs etc.

Now i would agree that iTunes has its shortcomings but realistically there is not much else to replace it with that performs as well. Mediamonkey and a few others come close.

Until Google create an installable replacement for iTunes and not some half-arsed web based music player then I would say that there are a lot of people who will stay with iTunes. It even sync's playlists, play count and ratings with Android using the right app.

Chrome beats IE market share for one day

nichobe
Coffee/keyboard

Re: Disappointing

Its all about choice in the end. Cross platform availability and account synchronization are possibly two reasons that could explain its rise. Also the billboard advertising that has been popping up all over the place. Chrome isn't spyware as it quite clearly explains that it is going to install, whether combined in another applications package or not. If a user never reads a dialog box before clicking OK or Next then installers are hardly to blame. Frankly I actually like the segregation IE for work and Firefox/Chrome for everything else.

You always get asked if you want to install it, like that stupid Bing Bar. Yes its default ticked on when the install for java etc runs but hey... you can always uninstall it.

Re: hmmmmm

Well Jodo Kast, people often research using the interwebs and then cite said internet articles

http://www.liutilities.com/how-to/cite-internet-article/

When you look at something that you believe isn't quite right you get thinking and poke around until you can find an explanation.. i.e. CGI, thin fishing line from a crane etc..

I would have hoped that a journalist writing an article would have performed even the most basic critical thinking and investigation.... I guess I thought more of El Reg...
