If I hadn't already migrated from them because of their lack of fibre options, I would have done over the Sky buyout.
Oh well, another one bites the dust.
The main reason I stuck with Apple was that I'd already invested quite a lot of money in iPhone apps and didn't really want to have to spend all that money again on equivalent apps on another platform, be it Android or Windows Phone. Brand loyalty be damned.
Where can I get it from SIM free for £100? Expansys have it for about £150. Carphone Warehouse is the same. Various Amazon sellers and eBay sellers have it for £150 SIM free. Seems to me that the only way you can it for £100 is to get it on PAYG.
I've just moved from BE to BT because BE aren't doing fibre, I'm no fan of BT but I'm even less of a fan of Sky. This announcement has made me pleased that I've moved. I'm glad that I won't be paying the Murdockian empire anything!
No, you're not. I like it too.
"Most buyers want cutting edge, innovative design and boundaries that are pushed."
Some do. Most don't. They really don't. Most people want something that works and that works reliably. I'm not saying that an Intel board required for that but to say that most people want flashy features on a motherboard that is never likely to do more than process the occasional Excel spreadsheet and browse Facebook is silly.
That's not what I'm asking. I'm asking if I can interface my iPhone 5 with this TomTom kit for Android. I'm asking if I can connect it to the bluetooth speaker and mic on this thing and charge it with a MicroUSB to lightning adapter.
I know that the app works, I've been using it since I got the 5. I just want a half decent mount and a hands free kit for it and until TomTom produce a mount for the iPhone 5 specifically, this looks like it'll do the job.
I'm sure I know the answer and I'll probably get howls of derision from the assembled for even thinking about asking this but...
Does this kit work with an iPhone 5 plus a MicroUSB to Lightning adapter? TomTom haven't updated the iPhone version of this to take the the iPhone 5 into account as of yet and I'm looking to replace the TomTom mount I had for my 3GS (which was top notch). I'm fed up with having to put my phone into my car's cup holder!

That would explain why the maps are so fuzzy compared to other mapping solutions...
Re: Not surprsing
No, that was in progress long before Microsoft bought Skype. The last Mac client to be released by them before the MS takeover was an abomination.
Re: RIP RSS reader
And in Mail... I lost all of my RSS feeds, I'm quite annoyed about that!
Minor point, an IPS panel is not necessarily 8 bit. There are a few 6 bit IPS panels out there, especially in cheaper IPS monitors. I think that they call them e-IPS panels.
If we're still using Facebook as an example, that probably means that people will bitch and moan for half an hour then actually notice that yes, the extra functionality that's been introduced in the new UI is actually quite good and then just get on with it.
Not to say that this'll happen with W8 but stranger things have happened.
Re: If we're talking about 'rebranders'...
"Foxconn bragged that it can and will do R&D on gear it makes, leaving tech companies to just do the marketing."
"Can" <> "Does"
Re: Quarter High...
I think the article made it clear, the server is a quarter as tall as a full height blade that fits into an M1000e chassis. I thought that the M610s we have in our chassis were pretty small, this is just silly!
I've read elsewhere that Intel only designed a controller for their original SSDs because all of the others at the time were completely hopeless. Now that other designs have caught up with and surpassed Intel's designs they no longer see the need to roll their own.
"HP is embracing mobility with apps to allow sysadmins to receive alerts, manage systems and even shut down servers, all from the comfort of their booth seats at the pub."
You say that like it's a good thing :(
