Sure there must be an App for that?

Re: Ah But.....

Not too shabby on the PC emulation either. But not as good as the real pinball game.

UK 4G auction kicks off in total silence

PipV
FAIL

Oranges are not the only fruit.

Apparently if you have signed up to the £36 a month 4 g EE network, you bill won't be going down.

The 4G network can be used for so much more than just mobiles on the move. Its a shame that this will be forgotten about in the midst of punters being shafted by suppliers and another Govermnet uction thats bound to go wrong, cost taxpayers a fortune, and requests for pointless enquiries to be started.

Microsoft halves Surface RT production orders - report

Kin Hell

What a shock! Producing 2 devices capable of different things will only confuse your everyday punter. Your everyday user just wants it to work and not be bamboozled with options.

Shame MS can't get to grips with this simple request.

Why do Smart TV UIs suck?

PipV
Paris Hilton

God Bless

My Pioneer Kuro.

No 3D bollocks, no intenet connectivity. Just amazing picture quality only now being rivalled by TV panels being produced today.

Plug in the trust old Western Digital and I am good to go.

No doubt Apple will launch a very simple UI, state they invented it and everybody will fall for it. All other manufacturers have had more than enough time to get it right and failed everytime.

Paris - cos she likes a good bit of UI

Thank Freeview for UK 4G by mid-2013 - NOT the iPhone 5 nor EE

PipV

Is it just me?

With the recent announcement that the West Coast Mainline deal wasn't done properly etc, even though we have had weeks of "fair and robust process - blah blah blah"

How does essentially giving 4g capability to EE network before the bidding process has started stack up?

Horse and Bolt spring to mind.

Apple's UK smartphone lead shrinks

PipV
Facepalm

Here we go...

Again!

Its got nothing to do with the fact that anybody with half a brain would wait a few months for the next all new and "shiny" revision on the iphone (5, new iphone, insert version name number here)???

Sales will probably tail off even further until the new model is available, and stall completely once an announcement is made. But I'll put a tenner down that people will queue for hours outside in the beautiful British sunshine.

Menage á tablet: Apple vs Amazon vs Google

PipV
Facepalm

Size Matters or Size Doesn't matter

Its interesting that the talk of 7" tablets and particularly the talk that Apple should/may/could make a 7" ipad, is to reduce the size of the screen for portability.

Whilst in another corner of the room, smartphones are increasing their size as if being pumped full of steroids.

So with one breath its "lets make em smaller" and the other its "make em bigger - bigger is much better"

I do carry my phone with me the majority of the time, becuase it fits in my pocket. I don't carry my tablet about much, not because of the size but because I don't need to. When and if I do, its not a huge ask to carry this about - hey what are Netto and Aldi carrier bags going to be used for?

Cupertino should just add telephone capabilities to their fondleslab. End of discussion.

Paris - because even she doesn't think 4" is enough.
