Re: Of course
Not everyone can see in 3D, the glasses are a pain and having to sit directly in front of the screen to benefit won't work in my house. My wife has prime position from her perch on the sofa, I have to suffer a 50 degree offset from where I sit.
I just want to slump down and watch a bit of telly, not hunt round for a pair of plastic specs an have them digging in my ears for a few moments of 'ooh look at that' and then realise the content of the program is crap.
In the cinema, yes, but in my house definately not.
Watch out again.
Almost everyday someone finds a vulnerability on an android handset. When will it end?
How many acces web pages with pass words, check on their bank accounts, buy stuff?
Every mobile should come with a warning 'Danger, using this phone may leave your personal data exposed and result in financial loss'.
Re: you'd need a warrant to get my computer
Time for encryption of every device I own, not because I have something to hide but because my business is my own. Why should the police have access to confidential emails, family pictures, confidential telephone numbers. If I have had to sign a document stating I will not divulge this information why should they have access it it on a whim of fancy.
Totally open to abuse of office with no safe guards, and pray tell why they would want to store pictures of my children for ever?
This poorly thought out legislation will be a gold mine for lawyers. Is that the intention? Jobs for the politicians friends and family. I think it is though I may be cynical
Re: Perfect timing..
I understand your confusion. My advice, make sure whatever phone to buy fits in your pocket, never buy a newly released handset as they all have teething problems, wait a month or so for reviews that comment more on usage rather than a 5 min fumble, consider, if it is an android phone does it come with the most upto date OS or is the manufacturer giving you a 'promise' of an update in the future. Note that when my HTC Sensation (unbranded) was updated to ICS it became a pig. If you have a branded handset the update will take much longer, if ever, and you may find it does not suit the phone.
Consider, as I do, whether you want to be stuck with a phone on a two year contract which is average, and will be well out do date in six months and unlikely to have the OS up graded after a year, should you buy an unbranded phone and then go for a sim only deal. Note android phones get cheaper after a month or so of release, while Apple do not. If you keep your phone in top condition unbranded ones sell better.
Lots to think about, good luck because you'll need it.
Re: "The silver block to the right of the A4 chip is where the microSIM goes"
After the micro sim will we get the incy wincy tiny teenie little red and silver weenie sim?
Couldn't find a rhyming word for sim?
On the plus side there is the BIG battery, and it can withstand a shower.
Um, that's it, looks ugly, uninspired and the screen is nothing to boast about, did Motorola know Samsung were bringing out the S3 and HTC new effort?
They seem to like to play catch up don't they.
remember the dot.com bubble of a few years ago? It burst.......
There is a surprising number of these strange people that have fallen from the nut tree, maybe it is something in the water?
Or a CIA mind control experiment gone wrong?

Re: Okay so...
If in the instructions it states FIRE HAZARD if switched on then so be it.
If not then it must be a fault.
The parents will buy them and the children will play them.
Is Uncle Vaz going to send an inspector to every home or will we have to sign a form and wear a.pledge ring to promise not toet children have access to the home pc and game console's.
This.is pure SOUND BITE LEGISLATION.
It has no relevance in the real world.
Retired my HTC sensation and await my new iPhone.
The ICS update has crippled the phone, it is buggy, slow, has spelling mistakes in the menu, battery life has dropped and writing messaging and emails takes on a life of its own.
The iPhone will work, it will sync with my iPad, contacts are safely stored in the cloud and it backs it self up input free.
It works out of the box and my service provider is supplying a sim free of charge. For once it will be blissful to know that using it will be effortless.
Re: I can't believe that thing is still limping along
Make it a bit cheaper which makes it competative.,

Re: International waters?
WATCH OUT FOR SUBMARINES!
I bought a 'new' iPad then changed my HTC Sensation to an iPhone and suddenly I had an epiphany....
Why can't all things be so simple, so easy, so slick and so reliable, look good, feel good and ouze quality?
All devices are not born equal.
Some are less equal than others. Why did I change?
The ICS update, that's why.
they are guilty or they are not

When did Uncle Vaz last play a computer game?
Have we all forgotten how involved he was by giving out dodgy favours?
He is just not credible is he?
where is the surprise?
Idiot consultants employed by idiot firms employed by idiot advisers overseen by idiot politicians?
The only suprise... Is that 4 in 5 succeed.
Bet that's a load of bull.
will this mean
Only .com will be allowed if you trade from the US or .org if you have an organisation or .net if you are a fisherman.
A load of .balls if you ask me.
Will just about pay 10% of the consultants fees.
mines bigger than yours
Will I need a laptop bag to carry it in?
Sadly they have the right to be smug.
Re: Have the tabloids calmed down yet?
Tabloids have to answer for their misdeeds, governments never do.
If the government stopped allowing half the world's terrorists and serious criminal claiming asylum here we would not need this legislation.
Change the law at the level it should be changed.
Company offshoring jobs from this country should not be eligible to quote for large government contracts.
about time too but
I'm sure that they will find a way to make up the losses in other ways.
Its just business Jim, but not as we know it.
