Sounds like a poor copy of Nokia's Mix Radio service...
Re: What use is a camera
I'm not sure they're hiding their phones from you because of embarrassment, more boredom of you ranting at them about how rubbish their phone is when you've not tried using it.
Re: More lipstick...
Have you loaded Linux onto your iPad?
"Apps" definitely existed on the desktop before smart phones were even thought possible. Plenty of references to them in RISC OS back in 1992.
Re: BBC article revelations... XBox is not about games!
Try stepping back from the mic, it's probably feedback.
Re: Have you noticed they're hiding the screen...
Please catch up at the back there Eadon. The actual press release, while headlining with a video, has this image just below, clearly showing the W8 UI.
If you're going to rant on about the platform, at least make your complaints vaguely accurate. Remember the old saying of it's better for people to think you an idiot than to open your mouth and prove it.
Re: “advance the bold vision”
> All the users who have an extra couple of inches of monitor they don't actually want to use?
Good point, except the ribbon takes up a few pixels less height than the previous menu bar + two toolbar set up.
As for the collapsed ribbon, that takes up even less.
Re: Microsoft - Enter These Holy Commands
If after all that effort, it's still going to suck, why not just write off the whole exercise and ignore the platform, leaving those who don't mind it to go about their business and saving your keyboard from your wrath into the bargain?
Re: Kiddie interface
Last time I heard people complaining about a preschoolish UI, they were referring to that abomination XP. It's a good job that MS reverted that UI look as it totally wrecked that version of Windows and there's no way that anyone in business would ever contemplate putting such a childish design on their PCs.
Re: Landfill Android vs SEWER-FILL WinPho8
Eadon, I know you normally meticulously research your posts and provide clear and concise reasoning to your points, which has left me in shock that it seems to have escaped your notice that this phone doesn't run Windows Phone 8.

How exactly are these musicians she recruits going to benefit? Has she offered to introduce them all and who they are to her audiences? Has she offered to link to their profiles from her website? Has she offered to do a write up on her site about them? As far as I can tell, no.
So how exactly are these people getting exposure to the supportive and music loving fan base, if none of them have a clue who they are?
Re: From the horses mouth
Wow... I suppose you could sumarise that response by "Amy, you just don't get it. Go away."
It's the little revelations in there, like how it's fine for her to do this because 'Beiber's fans would jump at the chance of supporting him', or 'David Byrne' once spent a few hours doing vocals with me', which shows how out of touch she is with peoples concerns. Like David Byrne is going to struggle to pay the rent by doing something for free for a few hours, and he'll probably get some good exposure to a different market by doing this, it's not like she's planning to introduce the all the supporting artists on stage.
But it's the 'for the big important shows, we've decided we have to pay people to do this, so we've contacted some professionals' that blows her entire standpoint out of the water. She needs these musicians, without them her show isn't going to work, and she acknowledges that she's going to have to pay for this on the big shows, but she just doesn't get how this is exactly the devalument that was discussed by Amy in the post which kicked this all off.
Sorry Amanda, it's you who doesn't get it. Now go away.
Does this mean that when Amy / Rory die in this season, they're actually going to stay dead for once?
You mean we won't automatically be able to shout "Oh my god! You / they killed Rory! You b*****d!" in response to their inevitable deaths because the resurection isn't guaranteed?
They turned the Athens broadcast centre into a shopping centre... don't think that option's available here.
... patent protection should last for variable times, for example twice the development time from when you first document the idea to when you have it working. The item is unprotected until you have it working.
That way companies which spend 10 years and billions on making something come to life get 20 years of legal protection, where as the companies (no names mentioned) who decide to do something obvious in their latest phone UI, taking no longer than a week, only get a couple of weeks protection.
