Re: Dual boot phone?
some sort of grub screen at start up?
How many people use that on their desktop PCs? Would people really want to see that on their phone?
I accept that some people would find dual boot useful but I bet most people would not.
The ! after each word is so over tired
Nothing to hide
what's the weather like in Cheltenham? bit cool in manchester today, but you probably already knew that
Strome Ferry (No Ferry)
Some fantastic books
Author of some of the best while simultaneously also some of the worst recent Scottish books. The crow road, Complicity and the wasp factory were amazing. I remember reading the wasp factory, it was like being part of this secret gang who liked this 'pretty fucked up little book' while a lot of the media railed against it. I loved the way he put all the negative reviews into the later editions.

Really? Bloody hell what a world we live in.

my bloody valentine
A review of Nokia's recent history by My Bloody Valentine Songs:

4)Off Your Face
5)To who knows when?
Ends on an optimistic note which may be misguided.
I looked up Ponit Clare
The suburb contains Point Clare railway station, which is on the Main North railway line,an Aldi supermarket, a pharmacy, a doctor's practice, Chinese and Thai takeaway, veterinarian. In addition, there is a Scouts' and Guides' Hall at Fagans Park.
Wow, in between the excitement of all that and the thrill of avoiding the flesh eating spiders, I am surprised he ever found the time to sit down at a computer at all.

uh, still didn't understand it I'm afraid, but no matter

this post paid for by linkedin
Maybe I am lucky in that there are very few people who can use the software which is used in my industry. This means it is a small industry but also means a small pool of candidates: I got a full time job plus 2 side gigs from linkedin
I find it helps if you put specialised skills rather than the generic 'web dev' type stuff.
Re: Can't recommend Windows Phone even though I liked mine.
Android updates are terrible too
he left before vista, the iphone and a whole host of other shifts in computing. he may be wrong he may be right but he's hardly current
my god that is some intrusive advert for the hp envy x2.
I don't run sites like adblock because I want you to get paid for your site. (pious? Moi?) But every time my mouse wanders up to the top half o the page the advert floods down
Re: True innovation - and laziness?
assuming that the common consumer mucks about with their flash rom image
I bet that if you asked a man on the clapham omnibus if you could muck about with his flash rom image to show him something funny, you would get a smack.
Re: 'easily achieved with reversible Java code'
“A very extraordinary thing has struck me.”
“Something funny, as usual,” said Cummings.
“Yes,” I replied; “I think even you will say so this time. It’s concerning you both; for doesn’t it seem odd that Gowing’s always coming and Cummings’ always going?” I fairly doubled up in my chair, till it cracked beneath me. I think this was one of the best jokes I have ever made.
I love Diary of a Nobody, any excuse to wheel out the old classics
what if those google glasses take off and everyone walks around with tiny cameras in their glasess? It would awesome to store all that video. That would take up a fair bit over the years wouldn't it? I realise google would want the data itself and not let us download our own copies, it was just an example
I suppose what I am trying to say, badly, is over the past 30 years we have started using technology in ways we could barely concieve off back then, what is to suggest that that is going to change?
what does a sliver badge mean next to your username?
I am starting to think that his management of nokia is, in fact, a submission for the turner prize.
Re: Great idea!
What do you mean by 'legacy'
Re: Why no mention of Northern Light?
I loved Northern Light, it was waay ahead of all the rest with its semantic groupings. Eg search string 'jersey', results grouped into 'Island', 'Jumper' and 'Potatoes'

El Reg: the reviews which matter
I love the way you mention in the review call quality from inside a pub.

I don't recall that guy from Wolfenstein 3D
Re: 35% of people who voted for Win 8 did so because Explorer 10 was bundled with it.
1) What is explorer 10?
2) What does the 35% relate to?
3) You seem to think people who are able to use a beta OS, and comment it on some geeky site have never heard of firefox, chrome et al
4) Are you really incapable of googleing to find out what happened to the browser choice screen? Again, your asumption seems to be that people are quite capable of installing a complete OS but are only able to remember to not choose IE if they are prompted not to do so.
Re: We come in peace...
Momentarily, our resident school bully lost all credibility after singing a version of that song live on radio 210. He used his fists and a wooden knife he had fashioned in CDT to sadly regain it.
I realise that doesn't add a lot to this debate.
error installing on windows 8
I tried the visual studio express web edition and it would not install on windows 8
you look like balmer lol
i can see the point of saving space on a laptop, but on a tower???? Surely all you are doing is forcing most users to buy an external drive and ruin the minimalism of your tower design?
can we not have screenshots of random people's twitter status embedded in your stories. I have seen this elsewhere but thought I'd be safe on here. It might help internally to promote your strategy to humanise the channel flow and synergise your content sreams or some other bollocks but I DO NOT CARE WHAT RANDOM PEOPLE ON TWITTER THINK AND IF I DID I"D BE ON TWITTER NOT ON EL REG

when my raspberry pi comes
I'll have a better computer, in an altoids tin than this for 65 odd quid.
Better in that I own it, and can do what I like with it
Better in that I can work offline
Better in that raspberry pi dot com is not sluriping up everything I do and subjecting my life to an algorithm that then tries to sell me pole dancing lessons (as my gmail just did)
anti competitive? against whom? the only real competition they have is earlier versions of windows.
i bet nokia wish they were as clever as the nerds on here with the foresight to see that elop was a microsoft plant
Re: He's not "IT-literate"
where does IT literacy end if you need to know how to program? If you need to be able to program in every language used on the web, no one in the world is IT literate
Am I IT literate as I build ontologies and search algorithms for websites? Or am I not because I know jack about css or how https works compared to http?
My dad was upset he could not run maple on the ipad and loves to tell me about the supercomputers he used in his nuclear pyhsics labs in the 70s, but he can't configure an email account My mum has no idea what html is, but emails me about it security from guardian technology section. Surely she is more it literate than him?
Re: Businesses - How about paying...
"and aare paid barely enough to support a family" so we are agreed they are paid enough then?
"I also know plenty of techies who are working second jobs to make ends meet," my point exactly.
"The judge obviously didn't see the whole thing as crime of the century either," I didn't say it was either. But he stole because he obviously figured it the easiest option given the consequences, not because megacorp x are heartless bastards who force workers to work at starvation wages.
Re: Businesses - How about paying...
So he was forced to steal because he was not paid enough? Bullshit, he stole because he is a thief. There is no techie in this country who is paid so little they cannot live, unless they decide to live beyond their means.
