Re: Oh nice
Sorry ecofeco (although I wasn't one of the thumbs down) but you have to understand;
Saying 'Oh nice' is acceptable if only it didn't seem like attention seeking behavior of a 'Yeah, I am first poster! Look at me!' kind of way.
If you are posting on a tech board, come up with some tech comment saying what you like about it. More people will tend to agree with your comment other than agreeing with the fact that you like the article, see?
Regarding the article: I am happy Google is finally facing competition. Maybe they will raise the stakes again.

Re: Note to Note 3, no thanks!
You are trolling right? I mean, really, right?
Re: But slowly – over time @Kunari
What are you talking about? Only reason people didn't go for xp that time was cause most pc's were running on less than minimum -or barely enough memory required for xp. That was also a time most memory wasn't compatible with one another. People who upgraded to xp had to w a it 1 or 2 minutes start up for office docs due to page swapping. Until my hardware was up to it, I was happily using 98, second edition. ME was a disaster, IMHO.
On the other hand...
The moment we actually create a working quantum computer, the whole game chances and there will be a leap forward , technology wise, similar to the industrial revolution.
3d printers will be the norm as they will be able to reproduce every carbon made item on the menu.
3d printed computers with unfathomable capabilities, able to perform tasks in seconds that would take current cluster computers months to compute. Eye wear that can visualize any environment and setting any where in the world and meet your virtual friends there.
The future is bright, the future is quantum!

Give these guys a movie deal asap！Space explorers and scientists. The new Kirk and Spock?
Can you imagine what evolutionary hurdles we, as humans, had to overcome to be able to survive in such a harsh environment such as space? Took us millions of years to get to the point where bi-pedism became the main factor of enabling our brain to grow exponentially. We have only just grasped the concept of stepping out of our comfort zone and explore potentially lethal environments just for the sake of exploration.
Hats off to these pioneers! Please, please make peeing in space more safe for us mere humans.
Wow, nobody talks about the elephant in the room?
America spies on everyone. EVERYONE. They say some countries are excluded, but those countries rely on monitored countries' network infrastructure. Who is to say communique through those countries isn't also intercepted. Another thing is; strangers like Mr. Snowden can rummage through our stuff without constraint; ie every one of them is a potential blackmailer. Luckily for us Ms. Snowden was of sound mind not to use gathered knowledge against individuals but to expose a huge security issue that affects us all.

"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!!!

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: 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.

On the other hand, knowing they are sex offenders and keeping them online enables me to shoot the crap out of them!

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?
