Do we actually care if some evil (yes I know) big fat corporation lost a few billions???
This is a scam... this is not a remake of a Speccy, just some stupid BlueTooth keyboard and apps running in emulation.
If this was a real Speccy remake with just an HDMI out, I would bite. Now? No thanx.
I loved my QL... one of the first things I wrote for it was a cross assembler to facilitate programming on my Speccy :)
They are selling better because Joe Average has no clue what it is and it is cheapo.
I still have an HP-28C... incredible machine.
"Will the “cure" hurt us more than the disease"
When the disease is slow death.... no.
I wonder how many people will be amazed that their brand new Chromebook is basically a paperweight, albeit a rather cheap one.
Just when the rest of the planet is moving to the Cloud for a better ROI.
A Chromebook. Seriously? No techy would be caught dead with that.
Ugly and low battery
Didn't Samsung get the nota? When you want to upgrade an existing product (a watch) you don't destroy its main features.
Did people really expect Snapchat to work like that for very long? There is no way that transmitted bits/bytes cannot be intercepted and saved.
Maybe they should think about hiring an actual designer. These monstrosities look like something from the 80s. If Apple ever brings out a watch, I bet people will buy it for the looks, not the apps/features.
Well Google is still rigging the search results... time to pay up.
Just when everybody is moving to native apps again... ouch.
Wow... I forgot all about this one. Beautiful. You should bundle all these articles into a book.
Re: So in other words
Yes and MS paid a lot of money in fines. Time for Google to pay up.
Sony running themselves into the ground
I guess that is what you get when a company like Sony starts to think forum posters are their customers. They have a business to run and, while their stance is brave, it will also be financial suicide. In the end the X1 will probably offer a more satisfactory way of managing your games to the iPad generation. Who the hell lends out disks or puts them on ebay anyway nowadays? The future is digital!
You mean Steam? 4 weeks no internet... forget playing your PC Steam games.
How many of you even buy used games or bother putting games on eBay?
Nice... means I can install a real OS on it.
Maybe he should fix the zillions of Android bugs first?
What about adding some insects into the mix? Surely it must be easy to breed those. They must be tastier.
Nokia was right
Seems like Nokia did the right thing. No money to be made with Android if you are not Samsung.
You know there is something wrong with the world, when people are defending intrusive ads. Well done Google.
The nonsense continues...
And manufacturers keep on putting Android in any device in the hope they can make some money and become a bit more like Samsung.
" For about twice the price of a conventional monitor?"
Ha that explains things.... gg
As user of both
It is just a matter of time before Azure overtakes Amazon. It just is a much better service.
TBH... probably 70% of those Android tablets are 50 euro plastic devices made in Chinese sweatshops bought by people who think they need a tablet.
TBH it is very easy to insult Koreans. Many small details you have to keep track of.
This also baffles me. Does that mean there was a lot of shit wrong that they need to change all the time? BSD has a much lower code churn.
The fanboys are out it seems. Not a surprise ...
Anyway... this looks more like a cross deal since Foxconn also owns quite a bit of patents.
MS paid for this... Google should as well. Google's violation or everything Internet needs to stop (and yes this also applies to MS).
I wonder if it would be possible to get your hands on one of these? I used most of the 1980 machines, but never a Lynx. Hmmm... maybe there is an emulator?
Very impressed by that Lenovo tablet. Quality.
"that would seem to be the effective end for the dream of a renewables-powered future for humanity"
If true that would also be the end of humanity.
"The only zero carbon, scalable, power-efficient solution is Nuclear Power"
True... but ofc you know we can't power the earth for very long (we will run out of fuel rather quick) with that unless we get fusion going soonish.
Cheap crap sells more? What a shocker.
Wow... some amazing denial there. The things you can do with a clever headline.
Wow I like this.
BTW 16:9 screen are great for tablets. I love the aspect ratio.
As if our use of the internet makes us FREE!
MORE ads please.
Is this 2007?
IDC said this before... forecasts are funny.
Re: Android and Linux
I think your post just highlighted why nobody uses Linux.
Wow... they paid somebody to design this?
Re: "Mother Earth is Angry and Punishing Wicked Mankind"
It is called an eco-system.It has build in systems to compensate... just not for very long if things get bad. Melting polar ice for example has been able to keep global warming in check for now.
Just planet Earth trying to compensate. It won't be able to do that forever.
Google : "Internet FREEDOM IS fuelled by ads, and must remain so ."
Fixed that for you.
I think youtube anno 2012 is enough proof.
Free not really free?
What a shocker. Nobody saw that one coming.
Clearly this is an artifical dyson-sphere like alien object. We are not alone!!!!
"surely has plenty of potential in the big wide world."
Now implement this for mistresses/lovers and the party can begin!
