I didn't realise 37 had gone stable
I don't think this is going to be the same as O2 broadband. The customers of O2 were used to getting a decent level of service particularly those on bethere. Those customers already had the choice of sky broadband but had chosen not to go with it.
Lots of EE customers are already going to also be BT customers for broadband and phone lines but at the moment they can't get mobile from BT, if they're already BT broadband customers I would imagine they will appreciate a cheap package deal on their mobiles.
It's a transliteration, you can spell it either way, it's an interpretation of how you pronounce the word and different people will pronounce the word differently. I think the only correct way to spell it would be חוצפה
Surely you don't need a whole new drive to connect to a USB-C port, just a new cable right?
I love the idea that you wrap a powershell script in perl, do you call that from a batch file wrapped in python?
"Lenovo support tools to help Lenovo keep your drivers up to date, and allow them to remote your PC if you give them the code
Lenovo tool to make special keypresses (such as turn on/off keyboard backlight, tweak monitor brightness, etc) not only work, but show an icon on the screen when you push the button."
But this is bloatware. Drivers can be pushed through Windows Update no need for a different Lenovo tool to be running to do this.
There shouldn't be any special key presses, volume, brightness etc. all of these are standard keys and since Windows 8 there have been on screen displays for them too.
Instead of wasting everyone's time developing these tools they should spend the time developing their laptops so that they work properly with a vanilla Windows install.
Your knowledge of world bridges is lacking, that's clearly Hull
It will almost certainly be fine, but so is a raspberry pi 2 for less than half the price.
You have Samsung Magician installed? And running? And you don't think you're an idiot?
The last time I installed that piece of software it needed elevated privileges to run in the system tray, it got un-installed pretty quickly.
So it turns out that IT stuff sometimes breaks. If you can't afford to be without your computer for the amount of time it takes Samsung to RMA your drive then I suggest that you need.
1. A spare drive
2. A warranty with next day or 4 hour support that will come out and replace parts when they go wrong
3. A spare computer
If you don't have these things then you need to be asking yourself the question, "Did I need to install a firmware update on my SSD?"
Did the firmware update fix a bug you were personally experiencing? Did the firmware update provide some new functionality that you couldn't live without?
These people upgraded the firmware on their drives with no RAID and no backup?
This looks like a good solution you can create dead keys for the accents or map the accented characters to modifiers.
No need to install .NET 2.0
On Window 7 .NET 3.5 is pre-installed which covers 2.0
On Windows 8 or 8.1 you need to enable the .NET 3.5 feature from the control panel
you can simulate Alt Gr using CTRL+ALT
Also if you use the UK extended layout the ` key becomes a dead key for typing grave accents
Whilst I agree that typing accented characters can be a pain in windows bébé is not a good example of a word that's hard to type the é character is just Alt Gr+E
Of course I doubt a mac has an Alt Gr key
The best keyboard for someone who wants to type in multiple languages that I've found is a Spanish one. Loads of accents but it retains the qwerty layout.
Google talk was supported? Who knew?
problem is drives aren't a standard size they come in loads of different thicknesses. It could be done but everything would need to be held in place by springs and the drives would just vibrate themselves to death.
Didn't realise they also made phones, I though they were just photocopiers, solar panels and kitchen knives
it's not the amount of storage that is the problem it's how the storage is partitioned. The cheaper Lumias have SD card support so they are given more generous OS partitions. The more expensive Lumias have larger internal storage but no SD card support so the OS partitions are smaller to maximise the available flash space.
I think it's also possible these phones have been chosen because there are plenty out there so more targets for testing and they share a common CPU.
I'm guessing this is more down to the logitech media server not using the correct stream. Mine now plays an information message telling me about audio factory.
Pretty sure most companies buy computers that come with the latest OEM Windows Pro license then use downgrade rights and imaging rights to stick whatever version on they are currently supporting. Windows 7 needed enterprise to do bitlocker but that is built in to Pro now. Most people aren't going to care about the extra features in enterprise.
HPs EVA did this as well, spares were just space reserved at the end of each drive. That way none of your spindles was unused and if your array was at 50% capacity you could lose 50% of your disks (not at the same time) without ever having to replace a drive.
I don't understand why all arrays don't work this way.
Dropbox app is out. It's not all that great though you can't open office docs edit them and then save them back to dropbox.
Maybe Microsoft should start paying bounties for bugs in Google software
There are two of them.
HTC have the Windows M8 (same as the android version but running windows) and Samsung have the Ativ SE (an S4 running windows)
Problem is both are only available on the US market, you know the market where nobody buys Windows phones.
For Cortana in the UK you need the Denim update. It's rolling out at the moment, check here https://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/ to see if it has been released for your device/region
The trick to not being forced into using an email address to log in is to make sure you aren't connected to the Internet when you're setting the computer up. So don't join your wireless network until you've created your account.
These are probably aimed at external drives. SATA drives in racks are usually 3.5" and designed for 24x7 running.
It's worth pointing out that the 2TB Seagate/Samsung drive mentioned is a 9.5mm drive so will fit in laptops.
This is an M.2 card and most likely NVMe so the article you posted isn't relevant
The register app used to be reasonable, just lacking a live tile with the latest headlines. Then the comments broke and it has never been fixed.
Sticking a link to it at the bottom of an article without even checking to see if it actually still works is a pretty poor effort
Fanbois who are willing to shell out $14.99 can purchase _a licence to watch_ a high-definition version.
When BT install the VDSL street cabinets they have to dig the road between the voice cabinet and the new VDSL cabinet, this might be a metre or sometimes it's the other side of a street.
In any largish building there will be a BT duct entering underground bringing in 100s of voice pairs from the street cabinet terminated at a demarcation point. BT will add a rack near this demarcation point and bring in the fibre connections using the existing duct. No need to dig anything and no need to find the space outdoors for the cabinet.
As for FTTP, I'd guess this is actually harder in a building such as this since BT would need to run fibre from the demarcation point through existing risers and ducts which may travel through other tenants offices depending on the design of the building. The copper will already be there ready to use.
Sure, I have no problem with the "black box" part in my example running Android but if I don't like that bit or it's no longer the best system for the job I should be able to pull it and replace it with something I do like without having to take a hacksaw to the dashboard of my car, and without losing the integration into the handsfree microphone, heads up display, steering wheel controls etc.
This is going to become more important over time. For years stereos in cars had radio and tape or if you were lucky a CD player and that was fine. Then music changed and everyone had mp3 so there was ipod integration which generally stopped working as iOS changed. There's 3.5mm inputs but the control interface on your phone or mp3 player is crap for use in a car. There's bluetooth but support is patchy, newer stereos have better support but without a standard you're stuck with the one that came with your car.
rather than this sort of crap we need manufactures to develop standardised systems for cars.
Cars built today will likely run for 10-15 years, probably more. Is an Android going to be the best choice for in car entertainment in that amount of time?
The entertainment systems fitted to cars need to be upgradeable in a standard way, like they used to be.
Make the amplifier separate. Then the system itself can be a black box hidden away somewhere with standard connectors for power, control and display.
Are there any other companies that make hard drives?
No spam for me at my designated plusnet address so I don't think this is an across the board problem but it's a poor effort.
The only big company I've ever found leaking my email is snapfish who, being backed by HP, you'd think would do better. Plenty of small companies though
I didn't think Hackers was available on bluray so was he actually bypassing the DVD region lock on a bluray player?
DNA from different species is different. That's how it's possible to tell that your beef lasagne contains horse.
Just a small correction here, as far as I know the UK has 4 IMAX cinemas capable of showing 15 perf 70mm. BFI, Science Museum, Manchester and Bradford.
I think the author refers to the LEO line of computers vs the s360 line of computers. You'd be comparing the first s360 to the LEO III
Why does everyone love VLC so much, I've always found it to be resource hungry and buggy. I've always preferred MPC-HC
you have to sign on to windows using your 365 account
"Stating 802.11ac is capable of "multi-gigabit" speeds is as pointless as stating USB3 is 10x faster than USB2. Which has been debunked as bullshit many times over with real life tests finding closer to 3x faster."
In my experience USB 3.0 is around 10x faster than 2.0. If I connect an SSD to a USB-SATA adapter I get around 22MB/s using USB 2.0 and around 250MB/s using 3.0. Now this is nowhere near the theoretical limits of either interface but it is a 10 fold increase in speed between the two specs.
ftp is built in to all versions of windows, has been since 95 but it's probably quicker to use IE to download your browser of choice.
A lot of the teclos will already unlock your phone for free at the end of your contract but some (EE) will charge you around £25 to cover the cost of their "admin".
This admin fee is charged to make you think twice about leaving, you can get a better deal that saves you a couple of quid a month but it will cost you a years savings so that you can use your own phone that you paid for how you want.
Ideally we need to ban locking of phones completely, it's fine that your contract subsidises your phone but that doesn't need your phone to be locked you signed the contract so you have to pay it regardless of whether or not you unlock the phone.
At first glance this doesn't appear to solve the problem. You still can't buy a perpetual license for windows for use on VDI. This is a new per user software assurance i.e. subscription license or a new per user VDA i.e. subscription license.
What we need is a perpetual per user license, i.e. I buy 300 Windows licenses for my 300 staff and they can use any copy of windows, that version or below, on any device (VDI, tablet, desktop) for ever.
Flash updates are hopeless.
If the update is a point release on the same version then it will update automatically. If it's a major release (which seems to be at least every other month) then the auto update window appears. Clicking update opens your web browser and takes you to the adobe website to download a new copy of flash with whatever toolbars Adobe is peddling that month. You then have to manually install the update from the download.
Adobe reader doesn't get updated too much, I think there has only been 8 updates since 11 was released.
Java is the worst of the lot. UAC prompt to load the update notification, followed by a manual process to initiate the install which installs the ask jeeves toolbar even though you told it not to when you first installed. Then the new Java 8 installer doesn't automatically remove Java 7 as part of the default install. I know some people need to retain multiple versions but that should be an option on the custom install not the default.
These people need to look at Google or Mozilla to see how auto updates should be done
I guess Apple ran out of room to make the sim any smaller so that it would only work in Apple devices, now they seem to have solved the problem by making a sim that literaly cannot be used in any other device.
" I don't really see what it's missing from the basic level Surface Pro"

I think the key is called context select.
Friend of mine had the same issue with a Dell, I remapped the keyboard layout for him so that Alt Gr functioned as the "right click" key
It's worth shopping around for example the 840 evo is less that £100 at many online retailers
