Re: 1000 quid!
I'm happy with a dual core i5 3xxx and whatever Intel GPU which comes with it, I'm all in for longer battery life.
Re: 1000 quid!
Which one? I need one! It should work well with Linux and Windows 7, a big touchpad is a must and I like a HighDPI Display, too.
Re: Open source software can still..
>The developers are out there and I can't see any issues that a bit of coding effort could not work through.
Germany is not a developing country, here wie buy ready made instead of developing our own :)
Re: Lack of integrated email/contacts/calendar?
It's actually not that bad. As the head of IT told heise.de it takes less than a week to setup a new mobile and this includes safety and security measures and other things as well as setting up caldav, carddav, smtp and imap accounts.
Munich does not have a policy about using mobile devices, so they have to work with whatever the politicians want at the moment.
Re: I don't get the complaints about Mien Kampf
My Grandfather went to jail for calling Hitler "größtes Arschloch aller Zeiten" (biggest arsehole of ll times) instead of the then preferred GröFaZ - Größter Feldherr aller Zeiten (biggest general of all times). Luckily he was "kriegswichtig" at Messerschmidt and thus not sent to Stalingrad.
Just ask the Chinese how to block properly!
Re: I'm watching and listening
I did, but never one for $1200 :)
Re: Sometimes you just have to get up, and say WTF?!
To be true, HP didn't even develop that! It was a third party app in the WebOS Market, one of very few by the way :)
Re: Well I *was*..
as far as I know the app sold 84 times at 99 Cents.
Macros, try them in MS Office on a Mac
Or try opening my thesis from 1993 in Office 2013!
My bet is on ODF.
Re: My old 400Mhz ARM QNAP...
Hm, my ancient Iomega StorCenter iX2 gives me 20+ mb/s too
Re: A quote from Hawking
>What possible resources could we offer intelligent life that could not be found on any of the many rocky exoplanets we've detected nearby - McDonald's?
would have been better
with playmobile reenacting :(
Re: That's because
I wanted an Asus or a Sony but the Macbook Air was cheaper, so I got the Mac :)
So they are just good enough for what Foxconn makes for HP, Dell and others then?
Beer, because even Holsten Pilsener is as good or better than real ale given the price!
What I like most in Formula E is that they change cars midrace when the batteries are down :)
Imagine a caravanserai every 50 miles where you can change cars instead of recharging batteries ....
Re: What puzzles me ...
It's in germany, different culture and all of that. A sculpture of a gun is a problem here.
With Bing Translator?
like that on Facebook?
Beer, because you need it then.
Re: Oh FFS
So it can't be fixed with a software update because nobody can be forced to install an update?
Re: Oh FFS
It does! Even to iPhone Users who are far away from mobile data services, i.e. here in the middle of a small rural village with just over 500.000 inhabitants where Vodafone can't be bothered with mobile data and such :)
Re: Not surprised
traditionally Linux is not a *nix and its pretty new on the market with just a little over two decades ;)
Re: I've missed something here
Although you can get Linux to near realtime, I don't think the drone itself depends on it, Linux is probably for the backend.
Re: Death from above
Given enough thrust they'll fly just fine!
Let me think ...
an ancient fear and Max von Sydow? Could it be SPECTRE?
Mine's the one with the evil scientist badge.
most probably not, first Adobe stopped development for mobile and then Google removed some hooks in its API without which it shouldn't run.
OTOH Firefox 27 das work with the old flash player for Android 4.2, if you really need some security issues on your mobile.
You can't turn it OFF and ON again? We're doomed!
Yes, but now that it isn't homegrown anymore it's not our fault! :)
Do I get this right?
Icahn invested in the wrong company and didn't earn as much as more clever investors did?
>Google is working on a rival system, but one that doesn't require a phone - all the 'brains' are integrated into the car
And there's the answer. Google is working on it while Apple is delivering.
Microsoft delviers, too, but Ford customers seem somewhat unhappy with the Windows Experience in their cars.
I haven't heard of Intels Tizen for some time, are they still working on it?
QNX looks good to me, especially because car manufacturers have a lot of experience with it.
But providing connectivity to any android phone can be a problem, which android with which extensions and modifications on which hardware? Add Symbian and Windows Phone and we're in trouble.
Me? I don't even own a car anymore :)
Re: 2007 hardware obsolete?
Some of those have 64bit CPUs, but the GMA945 (?) Chipset is limited to 32bit. Otoh, that white Macbook I bought in April 2006 is now best described as "genuine vintage" with all its scratches, dents and missing keyboard caps.
Six year old hardware runs fine with Mavericks, I should know, I'm typing on a seven year old Macbook Pro at the moment.
So people with even older hardware are stuck. OTOH, my 8 year old white Macbook runs (or better crawls) Windows 7. The Intel Chipset is limited to 2GB RAM and let's not talk about the graphics card :(
Re: Dell service
Apple can't even touch Dell Service. I know, I have both :) and HP and IBM servers at customer sites.
My MBP 15" late 2009 workhorse has been to a certified repair shop several times while under Apple Care, I had to bring it there wait two weeks and pick it up again :(
Re: £1040 for an extra 52gb of ram???
Kingston DDR3 ECC 1866MHz KTA-MP318/16G close to 200 Euros each, you need 4 of those. So you can save some on Memory.
It's about the Android brand, isn't it?
As far as I understood the german report at heise.de, you have to install certain google apps at certain places to use the Android brand and logo.
Does Amazon use the Android logo?
I recommend windows as host, too. Add some SSDs to the setup and use ISCSI for your btrfs needs in a Linux guest.
We ported from whatever-it-was-hp-had-in-the-micro-xe to Risc and then to x86, why not to ARM?
With VMWares arguments we'd still be running that old HP-3000!
Re: Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
They use BSD in form of BSDlite and older FreeBSD userland. It was OpenBSD who needed 20.000 for its electricity bill.
One of the NeXt boxes was at CERN and one Tim Berners-Lee developed something totally irrelevant on it.
It's in our building, it runs our software, we're the biggest technology company, must be ours!
Yes, the answer is C++, but I forgot the question :)
They are somewhat entangled.
Patch Tuesday in the kitchen? The Horror!
Patches for your phone, tablet, laptop, PC, TV, microwave, blender, fridge, dishwasher, hairdryer, car, bicycle, razor and much more.
That'll be a very busy patch tuesday!
Mine's the one with paper and pencil in the pocket for when my fridge refuses to mail my shopping list.
Re: Harpoons, eh?
and we may call him Ismael :)
Descartes might disagree with the christian part in this. Galileo probably too and I'm unsure about Da Vinci, he had some protection from the christians when he made his dissections.
when we're at it
pass a law against french dressing, or any dressing that is, on salad!
Re: Any chance...
To me it looks as if they happily do the killing themselves if left alone for some time.
The punters are excited

My first thought
why the i?
Re: It's all about the money
At least they'll have a more durable CE sticker :)
Re: Well hello ducky...
I wouldn't mind being trapped in the Tardis but prefer Martha or even Rose over a boy band!
Re: Yes well...
#2 and #4 are closely related. You have to either educate those who can't drive at a speed they can manage or have physics sort them out.
IMHO getting rid of ESP and such would help in the process ...
