should we not just go ahead and recolonise?
Come and have a go. If you think you're hard enough.
Oh thank christ one company hasn't forgotten how to put one of those on a phone. It's one of the things I miss the most from my 2006 Sony Ericcson K800i - that and the sliding lens cover.
I might be tempted back to Nokia for the first time since the 3310.
This would interest me
I'm currently the owner of an LG "Optimus 3D" P920. I'm a fan of the 3D display - it's a nice little party trick - but the phone is getting a bit long in the tooth at this stage.
I use the GIMP almost daily in work (I'm not a "proper designer" so my employers won't stump up for a Photoshop license for me), and Photoshop almost nightly at home (let's call it a reduced cost version).
I consider myself well versed in both programs, and there is no comparison. So many issues that make the same job take three times as long (if it can be done at all)...
Competing with Landfill Android...
...or competing with Android in the landfill?
Look at the pic linked in the article - how uncomfortable is that cop on the left! You can almost see what he's thinking.... "Don't look at the boobs, don't look at the boobs, for the love of god DON'T LOOK AT THE BOOBS!!!"
Re: Northern Ireland
Surely ID Cards, if introduced, would be mandated for all legal residents of the UK and not just UK Citizens. Whichever colour someone in NI paints their kerbstones, they'd be legal residents.
A week on eggs and lentils?
You should have budgeted a few quid for extra bog roll methinks.
Joking aside though, fair play to you.
Re: 30th anniversary of every man and his dog releasing a Spectrum-basher
"Amstrad's CPC was surprisingly successful for a late-era entry"
Very true - I'm actually looking forward to the 30th anniversary look-back on the CPC. By all logic, it should have gone the same way as the other "Me Too!" also-rans.
Re: Face it, vinyl sucks
Vinyl has a greater dynamic range than CD-format digital recordings. That only comes into play on certain types of music though, and in general I find the Snap/Crackle/Pop of vinyl more than outweighs the small advantages. I'll stick to 1s and 0s, but whatever floats people's boat format-wise, well, good for them.
free, specific, informed and unambiguous 'opt-in' consent
So that'll be a "By use of this service, you consent to..." line in the EULA small-print then.
In other news...
Legislation is planned to limit the lifespan of electric lightbulbs to be the same as a candle of similiar price.
Can't have the wick-dipping industry being out of pocket now, can we?
Devious and Disgusting
But they're running an even higher risk than run-of-the-mill ransomeware perps. I imagine that if they're busted, they'd also get done with distributing kiddie porn as well as the normal criminal charges.
Here's hoping, eh?
Where can I pick up a copy?
The harsh regulations of the Nork regime might actually be an improvement on Adobe's EULA.
Re: Don't go there
Sounds like a good yarn - you could (and should) do a book.
I can't argue with anything he's said
As a Cork native (born and bred and buttered), he's absolutely right. The problems with Cork airport really started with this debt deal - http://www.irishexaminer.com/archives/2008/0411/world/cork-airport-votes-to-accept-113m-debt-60074.html - and have gotten so bad that (as mentioned) you can't actually fly from the Irish capital to the second city anymore.
Not sure what EMC expect the current (broke) shower to do about it, but there ya go.
Re: watch out
The old "Magic Roundabout" isn't what it used to be since the flyover was built. It's just dangerous now, whereas before the rules of space and time did not apply.
He's *our* twat though. Kinda like the mad old uncle who mumbles to himself at every family gathering - to be tolerated with good cheer, but never taken seriously.
Seems like a good idea on the surface
It'll be interesting to see if it makes any difference to anything in the long run.
It's worth 50 bits of click-bait about Stephen Fry or Freetards.
"The exception rather than the rule"
How very true. When all this came out last month I decided, "OK, better disable Java in my browser then, be on the safe side". When I went to do so, it turned out it already was disabled - and must have been since this machine was set up two years ago. In that time, it never made a jot of difference to a single website I've used.
"Get my box of fags and a lighter there, and pour me a beer while you're at it"
Come on, tell me that wouldn't be the best thing ever.
Re: Pretty damn obvious what's going to happen
One of Swiftkey's USPs is that you can feed it the logins for your email/facebook/twitter accounts and it will do a scan of everything you've written in the last few years to build a personalized predictive text database for you.
Not something I'd be comfortable allowing, but a couple of my less-paranoid mates swear by it.

Re: spEak You're bRanes
But when the next whacking great meteor slams into us, we're toast. Gone in the blink of an eye, a dusty little foot-note in the chapter of galactic history entitled "They could've been contenders".
But if we, as a species, manage to spread out even just a little - then there will be no stopping us.
Re: A confused old fart writes....
"The beef all came from UK and Eire; none came from outside of the UK."
I think you'll find Éire is outside of the UK. There was a bit of a scuffle around 90 years ago about that.
Redmond are the only ones still developing a proprietary rendering engine on their own, is what I think it meant.

Holding a DIMM by it's connectors?
That's a paddlin'.
Well, I was
just thinking out loud. You should try it some time (the thinking part).
If heating/cooling part of the phone solves the issue for some, might the problem be a dodgy connection of some kind? Heat the part -> metal expands ever so slightly -> connection gets popped together -> problem solved?
A long shot I know, just thinking out loud.
Re: Apple reducing their price - burberry error
There's already loads of chavs using iKit - that ship sailed about two years ago. And, from the article - "Older, cheaper iPhones were an important part of iOS sales, says analyst Mary-Ann Parlato". Hardly a prestige brand these days, and the results can be seen in slipping market share.
"This rationale has been borne out by the market: Samsung 'became very strong and the others are having a hard time'"
Had Nokia gone with Android, they could easily be where Samsung is now - maybe even above and beyond.
Re: Who are Nokia?
No, it's not that popular.
Re: Do not evil
Counter-attack, not attack. It's right there in the second paragraph.
The herd of elephants analogy
I've never heard that one before, and would like to thank you profusely for it.

Steve Jones actually - Johnny had as good as quit by the time they recorded that song.
