Either one is very secure here in Scotland...

cos their coverage is crap. I have moved to a number based provider since there coverage is good, and I get 3G. In an interesting story, I got 4G on a trip to Birmingham a fews weeks ago, which was slower than the 3G speed I get here, so not overly impressed with 4G.

WTF...?

IF you have something that can only run iOS 4 or 5 it should have been binned a long time ago - it will be a sack o crap compared to a new device. Time for an upgrade people.

I know I will be down voted for this but ancient tech is rubbish, do you self a favour and lose the many year old stuff.

I really did love Skyrim...

but the lack of Multiplayer made it feel incomplete, then came the announcement of ESO, so then it was obvious why it was missed out. Shame really.

I am going to get Diablo 3 at some point, I played the demo and it seemed really good. At the moment GTAV and Deus Ex: Human revolution, directors cut are taking up my allocated gaming time.

Entry right in to the cheap end of the market. This might do more to get people into windows phone than anything else. I wonder if the screen still burns in like the more expensive models?

Will be interesting to see how this sells compared to low end Driod handsets. I suspect the sales stats will be the most sort after things when it comes to this phone. If I am in town over the weekend I think I will try to see if there are any in the earphone whorehouse.

But WTF is going on with the xbone? Sounds to me like the windoze mobile people have had their hands on it, all this type of stuff should have been ready at release time. The 360 has had external storage capacity for years, and don't get me started about price...

Forget phones, BlackBerry's new Project Ion is all about THINGS

Longrod_von_Hugendong

The trick, Saunders said, is that these days,

Is not letting people know Blackberry has bought it, so we still have some value.

I think that was the quote he was looking for, BB and Windoze fone are fighting for the toilet bottom at the moment, so you probably don't want your device associated in anyway with the company. Plus Apple are moving into cars etc. so that has already got the industry spooked.

Brits to vote: Which pressing scientific challenge should get £10m thrown at it?

Longrod_von_Hugendong
Bronze badge
Boffin

All good projects...

But missing the obvious ones...

1) Create liquid fuel from atmospheric gases, create petrol or diesel from stuff in the air. This means I can still use my V8 powered car, rather than covering to a milk float.

2) Cold fusion - come on, what list is not complete without this? (At least if I do have to drive a milk float it will have a Mr. Fusion on the back)

3) Vacuum propeller / reaction-less engines / Warp drive.

4) High temp superconductors, that work at 100 C for example.

Those are the real obvious ones I can think of, plus solving some of these would make solving the other issues pretty simple.
