"and be glad of the larger screen, which makes typing more comfortable"
I believe what you are trying to say is "makes texting (or sexting) more comfortable".
My God, am I that old that I suddenly remember my old IBM keyboard? The clicking sound reminiscent of a writer desperately trying to get thoughts on paper; That was comfortable. This, as well as typing on my s3 or big-ass screen fondle-slab, is not. Beer O'Clock!
My files or their files?
Something very interesting I noticed on Google Drive. On the main page a list of documents can be seen. Click on (or touch) it and you can view the document. I did just that with a presentation file. When I made some changes I went back to the main screen to see if the time stamp had changed correspondingly.
Then I noticed under the word "OWNER" the word "me". Got me thinking. 'me' as in 'me, Martin Huizing' or 'me' as in Google?

Re: Slow News Day Or April Fools?
II, for one, welcome relevant news coming from China. Not only because I live here, also I see a change in Chinese mentality. People want to address issues closer to home and, through social media, are finally able to let their voices be heard. 'Slow news day' means no news to report. Just cause you think it doesn't concern you, doesn't mean it is not news.
Things I'd like to see in a future iteration of a 'smart' phone.
1. Absolutely no smart cam watching me all the time.
2. Absolutely no smart cam stopping a movie when I am not looking at it.
3. No extra software/services running in the background doing medial things like constantly looking at me. Save it for the battery, thank you very much.
4. No more infra-red. "Yes, I control my TV with my phone" - signed: Absolutely Nobody
Okay, that is what I don't want to see. Here is what I do like to see:
5. GPS is a God-send. Let the Einsteins focus on getting better location services instead of eye tracking, head nodding etc...
6. Dedicated camera button. Once to turn on, once again to take a pic and long-hold to start video recording. Not too difficult, right?
7. Easy sd card access without having to take out the battery * already in most new smart phones.
8. Less touch sensitive screens. Isn't there a slider where I can set the sensitivity level? Every time I watch a freaking movie on my S3 I accidentally touch either the screen (pause), home button (go back to menu).
9. Stereo cam and 3d screen. Ohh... 3D.... Porn comes to mind, but No! I want to see Google Earth in full 3d! Awesome!!!
You got more, let us know!
Re: oh good
I tried a brand new model in a show room and it refused to print some of the letters while typing. Oh that and the fact that it is shit. Remember Windows ME? Don't tell me you liked that over '98SE... But I see your point. Maybe we, the people, should give more constructive feedback on why we don't like tifkam.
So I take it you never owned a Barracuda drive ?
Downvoted for stating the bleeding obvious?
If they would say 3 or even 4 years (of course they already calculated the storage capacity increase of plates over a certain amount of time), I'd be buying 8 terabyte disks for my movie collections. But at the end of this century we will most certainly see SSD drives cheap enough and big enough to drive (haha) platter driven drives completely out of the market. Hitachi is shooting themselves in the foot if they don't focus on flash memory. Imho

Fondle-clap Surface vs the rest (now including Apple as well)
Have you noticed notebooks, for sale, being displayed at an enormously weird angle making you look up at the screen while squinting down to read which key strokes you inputted when finding the system specs.
If you were finally to come home with your top of the range beauty and set it down on the table with the leathered swivel chair you bought specially for this occasion, you'd had that grand feeling all of us geeks yearn for and the need for it is encoded in our genes. "This is my Laptop, I'll limp to the John, this is for shaking and tissues for fun". Time to enjoy your new toy, your sex-mate, your pal hooking you up with unforeseen damsels in distress through Graig's list. The gaming machine that kick's your anonymous playmates asses. The coolness factor when showing it off to friends and foes alike, the glow in the dark that you can clap shut when moms suddenly enter. Ooehmpfff... ***breath***
On the same shelf I noticed the MS fondle-clap IFKAM Surface PC color range.
And while all other notebooks and tabs were mishandled at an inappropriate angle, the surface PC felt right at home there. Only to be tried, never to be buyed (Oh, I know it is terrible, but it rhymes)
Re: Inference without evidence
The 'Finger she manned', sounds even more daft!
Big 'finger' up, though...
Was in a computer store the other day trying out the new surface notebook slash tablet pc.
After a few minutes I typed out my feelings:
"I think I like Android better. "
I had to re-type it several times as the keyboard inexplicably missed several key strokes...
"Whoops", just slightly better than "Oopsie daisy"... not quite the same ring, though.
It begins today!!!

“A year later these FileWare drives would be replaced by a single Sony 3.5in 400KB floppy drive”
3.5inch? You sure you don't mean 5.1/4?
2036? Funny, that's the year my Excel calendar generator stops at...
Wow, just wow!
These people aren't interested in your health as so much your money.
I am overweight, I know and Summer comes I am going back on the bike and change my diet (not going on one)
IMHO a healthy appetite is just as important as keeping fit. This does not look healthy!
Re: > Hey, these kids - they're addicted to video games...
Mental capacity of a kid, perhaps...
"below absolute zero"
And I'm still here? Non-story, fellas...
Re: not many?
Example: I was in a car accident in 1997. Before that it was just a habit to put on my safety belt. Afterwards I encourage everyone to use one as I wouldn't be here if I hadn't worn one.
Some people need a wake-up call. Not all are inherently evil.
Re: 2,100 sex offenders now have more time on their hands
On the other hand, knowing they are sex offenders and keeping them online enables me to shoot the crap out of them!
(I do agree agree with #1's statement though...)
Re: Never again
First (and probably last) SSD is my Crucial M4-128, you know the one where, after 5000 hours of playtime, it spontaneously stops working. Firmware update didn't work under windows as it needs to be set to IDE in the bios where after Windows would blue-screen at reboot. No CD drive so had to image a bootable flash disk. Sooo much trouble and headache. Any other type of hardware in a computer can be automatically updated, so why not SSD drives?
Every time I read 'TSA' I think of Tits 'n Asses...
Trip down memory lane, yes indeed!
Just for fun, upvote if you used hotbot at any time :)
In an iPhone?
Me: "Siri, open the garage door"
*whirrr, click bang*
Neighbors garage door opens...
Just read an article from 1931 describing 1 hour flights from NewYork to Berlin (before WW2 they were good friends) for the public.
Eerst zien, dan geloven! (popular Dutch expression)
Re: At least it's not win8...
Windows 7 is the Obama of os'es. Obama is no Bush (vista) and the public decided to have him for another 4 years in stead of Romney (win 8).
Same here. I'll stick with 7 for now.
Re: US or Blighty
If he really wanted to go to the us, he would have strapped a few jerrycans of oil around his waste.
As a Choonie (expat living in Changchun) I can say,
that iPhone's are everywhere here; on the bus, on the street, in taxis. Maybe there is a stigma against the latest model. But there are many fakes indistinguishable from the original (on the outside).
Is it wrong to penalize a person for the phone he/she is carrying? No, of course not! Never...
...unless it's a Windows phone :P
Actually I kind of had it with the Apple vs Samsung cat fight. Guess Nokia is in the ring now too...
That guys' pic...
Best photo of a super star yet!
Astronomy is actually getting cool! (again)
Re: You have the right to remain guilty...
Or having the right to remain silent. Or does that only apply in the USA?
