The quote doesn't confirm it sends back all the data it has gathered. We need precise info, not media bytes.
That's an impressive fail on your PC setup at the time - the best we did with Daggerfall was 72 hours solid, five of us taking turns with the controls.
This might work for city central types, but not for the rest of us.
Would you care which telco hosts your number if there was only one that could provide a connection where you live or work? Would you be happy to be moved to Orange if only Vodafone or O2 provided a service in your area?
That's odd - I see all-in-one touchscreen PCs in the shops often and I've seen quite a few business touch screen models recently.
but you could always use LEGO for the miniature model
It's not discrimination if it's based on a known higher risk of fraudulent transactions from that location, it's simply an essential level of security.
Or possibly let's hope it is a Sony clone but with better PC software?
Anyone know where you can get a decent Shawarma in the UK? Similar to a kebab but uses spiced lumps of real lamb instead of mystery meat.
Though it may be good news in the long term
Maybe corporations (other than just sony) will realise they need to either pay a lot more attention to their security (and that of their affiliates) or reduce their net presence big time.
it is what it is
Re-imagining is a perfectly accurate description of Hollywood's current attempts to cover up the fact that they no longer do original work.
well yeah, but no
A simple peek at the image of this new Asus and then a look at a photo of the MacBook air was more than enough to convince me the two don't look even remotely similar.
Well other than being thin and having a clamshell format with the keyboard on the horizontal bit and the screen on the sticky-up bit obviously.
If the clients get warned before any damages can occur isn't that a good thing?
It sounds like you would prefer damages occurred just so companies can be sued.
has a habit of exposing secured or subscription-only pages
Wish I could get one
but they still don't seem to be available or supported over here in the UK
Helicopters and US commandos
It's really odd the way helicopters always seem to function perfectly until there's a high profile spec ops mission at which point they just randomly fall from the sky.
What would be unbelievably nice would be a colour e-ink pad - might not be any use for for games or movies but would be awesome for pretty much everything else.
In those scenarios what would be wrong with printed brochures (rather than somewhat optimistically hoping every visitor or possible customer has a compatible phone with the correct version of the right software activated)?
NFC - No F***ing Chance it's going on my phone.
Just maybe Hollywood will start to get the hint that we, the customers, aren't impressed by their favourite sons.
Touch can be useful
The sony readers have a nice mix of buttons for regular tasks like page turns (although there is a touch option) with touch for menu navigation, selections, etc. The combo works rather well.
Copy of Rock Band 3 then
This is exactly what is available from Rock Band 3 (excepting that it also has keyboards, vocals etc.). There are lessons, over 120 tracks for real guitar already, etc.
Will Rocksmith also be using the Fender that was developed for Rock Band 3?
Unfortunately Rock Band doesn't (yet) teach how to read music or traditional tab.
Also how come the article's author only mentions (the now defunct) Guitar Hero that never moved away from buttons but not the abominable Powergig that also claimed it would teach guitar?
Which is why so many will be disappointed when their shiny (screen) tablet just isn't any good as a reader
It's an awesome bit of kit that was being held back by the uses MS tried to put it to (and the lack of enough clout in the 360, even the 'kinect ready ones', to really use it). Opening it up to the orld can only be a good thing.
Add it to a decent multicore system (even a PS3 would be a decent start) and the possibilities are phenomenal.
Just off the top of my head I can foresee over a dozen really excellent uses for the technology in the emergency services and a vast amount for the military.
Except there were some true hits
Some games (for example the Monster Hunter series) managed to hit the high-end mobile market just right - beautiful graphics but intentionally short action episodes, perfect for commuter train journeys.
Sorry - Are there any countries that aren't corrupt? - there, fixed if for you
Because they do not understand the risks, or even in most cases understand that there could be a risk.
When that list comes up they will simply assume it's all fine and required.
Not all missionary hospitals are like that
When I was working as a paramedic I came across no missionary hospitals behaving that way.
As an example the Andara, Namibia, RC mission hospital always treated everyone that came to them regardless of race, creed, national origin or the medicine costs. The doctors were mostly German.
No idea what the attached school was like.
BlueGreen - you're not alone
At uni during geology field trips we got to play with dowsing. For pretty much all of us it worked, a bit, sort of.
The problem was you couldn't search for anything specific or tell what it was you had found. It could be water, a mineral vein, a different type of rock to the surroundings, anything. The only thing you could be sure of was there was a change of some kind.
