Too niche for me
I wouldn't be able to fit the keyboard in my pocket, so not for me.
What I would like to see though, is a remake of the Nokia Communicator with a decent size keyboard again, along with all the symbols I need for coding, all accessible without going into key menus etc.
Re: choice . . .
Nice bit of revisionist history going on in these comments...
Netscape 1 & 2 were great browsers (far better than the original Mosaic browser). The original IE was rubbish, so no-one used them, even though IE3 came with the OS.
Then Netscape released v4, which to put politely, was a steaming piece of dog poo. They stopped updating it soon afterwards, so users had the choice of sticking with a browser that'd bluescreen on windows or even give Linux a kernal panic, most of us had to switch to the only other useful browser which was IE4. Netscape users had to wait for over a year for Netscape 5 & 6, which as you know was sold off to become Mozilla. In the mean-time, they lost substantial browser share & sued.
Someone who is old enough to remember their frustrations with Netscape 4.74.....
Be able to make phone calls?
Don't see that listed...
I'll stick with 3G...
The dual channel 3G connection I get here is a lot faster than an average DSL link, so I don't see any point in upgrading to expensive bills/connection caps...
Re: Talk Talk is pretty much the only company
Heard so many nightmare stories about Talk Talk residential that I'd never recommend them to anyone..
Their business service however, is second to none. Simply the finest example of an ISP that I have ever found (been with most of the big ones over the years)
Re: Just watched it...
Combine those guesses & you wouldn't be far off...
Just watched it...
The start of the film was way too slow, and the ending was dreadful.
The rest of it was fine though & T.A.R.S lines always got a laugh. If they shortened the film to 2 hours & changed that ending, it'd be a spectacular film....
Just done this!
Emprise ISE 5000
Brocade Silkworm 220e (4Gb FC)
LTO tape library
IBM X server
Barracuda load balancer
All for under £600 believe it or not...
The BBC's Unnatural Histories documentary covered all this, and they had first hand accounts from early explorers describing the Amazon supporting millions of people....
I guess someone wanted a holiday in the rain forests..
Re: The other way around?
I agree too.
If you are using Windows as the desktop and Linux in the shell, then it doesn't make any sense to run windows in a VM.
I have never had any issues with linux vm performance on a Windows host under VMware. You can share directories between host & vm from a menu setting too.
Those icons remind me of the original RiscOS icons on the Archimedes...
How can this still be a problem?!?!?!
Too easy not to get caught out by this problem!!
A simple way around this is check all parameters at the start for banned items like <script and replace them with something harmless. Personally, I replace hacking attempts with the word "cheeseburgers".
Took 30 seconds for global back-end protection from XSS & SQL injection in one project.
I don't think it will matter
It won't matter for the first explorers... It won't be old-age that kills them anyway!
If the publishers were worried about money on ebooks, why didn't they just raise the wholesale prices?!?!?
So Apple have invented the tracker then..
Had a tracker in my last car. Could alert me where it was in the car park & do other things too.
I smell a law suit..
I was in Newbury at around the time the balloon burst and saw something that looked on fire falling out the sky. Could it have been a part of this?
It's about as original as anything else Apple have designed.....
I miss the days when Firefox was a good quality, lightweight browser. Gave up on it when it became that buggy bloat-fest we know it as today.
Re-read the article then. Polar regions were quite survivable at that time.
Luckily for us, everything alive today is related to animals that survived it, along with the other mass-extinctions... We could probably survive the next one too...
16? Is that the version number, or the amount of people still using it?
With the amount of money Apple are sitting on, this just proves they don't give a shit about end users.
Re: Heavily Shielded for Radiation Protection
The Van Allen belts don't take long to fly through.
Anyone who views Apple as anything but another evil company needs their head examined.
Granted, they make pretty gadgets that idiots can use, but virtually everything they do is copied from elsewhere.
I'll have to replace all my apple gear with virtually identical iStuff, but it'll be a small price to pay to be able to brag that I have an iPhone 5!
Worth every penny.
Why would anyone register a tld after a product that may not even be around in 5 years time?!?!?
Obviously the BBC haven't noticed you can upload images to google to search against...
Re: Well finally....
Like Apple would ever care about who they upset... True fanbois would just buy newer stuff with the new connector.
Re: text editing
Crimson.. Wow, that's just brought back some memories! I used to use that in the 90's!
Does this mean we'll be getting software patents too?!?!? Really hope not.
Next up, they'll be going after the Thinkpad trademark!
I prefer to follow Mark Vogan's blog for my long term weather nowadays as he accurately predicted the last 3 winters...
I can't wait...
To see someone drop their iphone onto their ipad & crack the screen.. Or watching a gust of wind blowing their files to the wrong device :)
