I'm guessing you've never been in Currys - being forced to stand 2 feet from any TV side by side, you'd be hard pressed to see a significant distance. These are not premium electronics emporiums.
'apart from anything else the latter is always going to be easier to sell to Currys punters on the basis 4K is a bigger number than 1080.'
I actually witnessed this in Currys at the weekend - elderly couple in buying a 55" TV for 10YEAR OLD grandson for Christmas ('it's what he wants') being told to go the 4K route as 'loads' of programs are already being broadcast in that format...in fact, it's the 'HD standard these days'.
When the not-quite-hip-enough-for-Apple-Store assistant had this questioned by Grampa - who could not see any difference between the 1080 and 4K demo pictures - he was told that it was probably due to his glasses (!) and that the higher resolution was better to have as 'more is better'.
Re: Does it receive the full 4G spectrum yet?
I have said OnePlus One (64GB, Sandstone Black, lovely bit of kit) and can confirm it does support 4G on 3 in the UK - it switches between H+ at home and work and 4G when I'm in Glasgow.
Re: And what free album will we get today?
If it was Erasure, surely that would take care of itself. No cleanup tool needed.
One M8 was the best phone I had...
...until I finally got an invite for the OnePlus One, which now sits on my desk. The bonus being that I sold the One M8 with a Dotview cover for more that I paid for the 1+, meaning I have bonus beer cash.

'WTF are 'paedophilic manuals'?'
I don't know, but I'd suggest you don't Google* that...

Was at an awards ceremony last October hosted by Jimmy Carr - not one of my favourite performers it has to be said, but he made the evening an enjoyable one - particularly as he pretty much slagged off each award (e.g. 'Best Use Of Phone Technology In A Call Centre - er, it's a f****** call centre! What could the best use possibly be?' etc) whilst the organisers looked on rather sheepishly.
Corden? Talent vacuum.
I had a mate who tried to sell the idea of
Birdy Flaps, but the coding was a labia-rinth of complexity.
Re: All seem to be rip-offs
Its like the ruff from America by Neil Diamond, crossed with Tarzan Boy by Baltimore...
Re: Yea! But you know...
I agree, I prefer the anticipation of the whole regeneration episode and reveal. I'm guessing the BBC has done this as its the 50th anniversary year and more importantly to counter any tabloid spoilers ahead of time. Capaldi is too high profile an actor for that secret to have been kept.
Great choice though, looking forward to seeing how he does!
Re: Pub landlords
Second thumbs up for the Doom Bar.
Those specs are an insult to barrels.
Back in the day, I had a Dell Streak...
...and it was OK to use. Felt massive in the pocket though. Cue disappointment all round when I explained to interested lovelies what it really was.
Paris, because she appreciates the extra inch I'm sure.
