the REG ipad app is pants
I must be strange
I find most apps from sites useless.
I always end up going back to the website to use that.
Examples being Shopping websites who provide apps.
plus why have 200 apps when you already have a browser.
Only available in US store
Unless you have an account on the US itunes store you cant get the app
Vmware has been using their VIEW app to stream virtual desktops to ipads for a while now. their interface is pretty good.
Apple TV lacks everything
Apple TV here in the UK is only usefull for streaming from your Itunes or IOS device. The rental is a rip off, its also limited. In the states the have netflix.
As an Ipad one owner i cant watch SKY n my Ipad and on the apple TV. But ipad 2 customers can and Apple will be missing out on all those potential rentals that SKY are now giving away for free* (if you are a sky subscriber)
XBL pay to play weed out chaff
I prefer XBL to PSN for the simple reason it weeds out the idiots who come on not to play but to annoy. That £40 a year more is worth it when you see the idiots on PSN.
Not that XBL hasnt got its share but more people are less likely to be complete idiots when faced with a band that can cost them money.
You are all missing the point.
All you arguing about the fact apple does not want non apple USB devices connected is fine. I agree with that but let's face it apple sold an SD connector too and it seems only a minority of cards now work with that.
Not just crappy cheap cards but named cards sold in apple stores have been reported not to work.
As one who bought the camera connector kit for what it was designed to do I am bitterly disappointed that half of the kit is rendered useless to me. I prefer using the Sd connector than connecting my camera up via a cable to transfer my photos especially since both my cameras use different cables.
The silence from Apple suggests it was a fubar rather than design.
Over PC again
Too much political correctness today.
Yes there is a fine line when talkign about Race and colour but is it really a case of raceism or general popular perception.
I dont want to get into the debate that Afro-american/european males are faster runners or what but im sure if they put the top 8 100meter atheletes in the picture instead of actors the image would not change and nothing would have been said.
The more people bring up the "POSIBILITY" of a racial undertone the more its going to be construed as racist. As alot of comments in here have pointed out Noone would have noticed.
I cant get it to work
I still havnt managed to get it to work yet.
It constantly wants me to reinstall instead of download. Well i have given up
To be honest like the Sky anytime, 4OD the Iplayer wont impact me that much as id rather watch TV on a TV.
I have Sky Plus and using their online remote recoed is 10 times better than watching a program on your Laptop.
Lets be honest BBC repeats that much you will never miss a program anyway.
