Re: boosting its broadband connection speed to 152Mbit/s
Not sure what speed package you're on but my upload is 10Mbit. Love it!
Depends on the person & situation etc but I don't mind paying a bit more each month to get the better upload speed - the increased download speed is just a handy side effect.
Re: Peak apple?
I just don't get what investors realistically expect from Apple (or any company in similar circumstances), they beat their earning target for the quarter, they pocketed $7 BILLION IN PROFIT IN 3 MONTHS yet people get pissed and their stock falls by 7%.
FML There's something seriously wrong with humanity/humans if $900 profit each and every second that passes isn't enough to satisfy.
On a positive note, by my maths, Mr Icahn has just lost 252 million dollars with a 7% price drop in Apple shares on his "no-brainer" 3.6 billion investment with Apple.
That seems a lot of money.
Re: It's an option
Aye maybe, but for now it is an option that I have exercised. Some of the accounts I follow I'd prefer not to appear in picture, at least straight away.
It's an option
You can switch off the preview y'know, it's in the settings.
Re: Read first sentance.
That's kinda what I thought as well, I read the opening few sentences and thought "the fruity taste of bitterness is strong in this one".
Never mind, I'm sure the author will gush forth praise when Apple's watch drops. Magical. Revolutionary.
Anyone explain this to me please?
3rd review of an Air???
So yesterday we had 2 reviews of the 13" model and today we have a review of the 11" model. Seriously, are they that different that we need a separate review for each screen size?? Jeez.....
So you're saying we follow the grammar, and that nazis like sheep? Cool.
The results for the 3rd quarter of 2013??
Wow. So we know Win8 continues to fail for the next 6 months huh?..
6.1 or 6.1.1?
So is this borking for 6.1 or 6.1.1? I've got 6.1 running fine on my 4S and there's an update to 6.1.1 do I download or not?
No Lord of the Rings jokes yet?

What's the height of conceit?
A gnat floating on its back down the river with a stiffy shouting "Raise the drawbridge!!"
Twas the bettery life, or lack of.
I also ordered one thinking for the price I'd be able to live with the purported poor battery life. Thankfully though, the order backlog gave me a chance to consider further the slowly increasing poor reviews of the battery life of the phone. I cancelled and bought a Note 2. Even though it's cost me more money, it's saved me a shedload of hassle with poor battery life which was the achilles with my creaking DHD
Remember to switch the DND off, or you'll miss them as well......
That would mean Apple incorporating wireless charging which they're unlikely to do any time soon, and if they do they will develop their own proprietary standard or engineer their products to only work with official Apple licensed induced energy, non-licensed energy will not be allowed.........
I loved elbowing them
Grabbing their hair and kneeing them in the face was a win as well. Or throwing the knifes at them.
Me and my mate used to complete the game on 1 life. We had no life at the time.

Re: And I need NFC why?
And I need a laser why?
While I am also slightly skeptical of NFC (or its close-range variants), I think there will be large demand for it once we sort out the applications. We're still at that stage where we know it's exciting but haven't quite figured out the best way to use it yet. Maybe switching the central heating on and off as we arrive/leave the house. Light switches becoming redundant as we pass from room to room, maybe reminding us that that parma ham in the fridge is nearing its sell by date. I don't know but I'm sure someone will crack it.
Maybe I just love technology and the possibilities it allows us to dream up
...mentioned the Nexus 4 yet?
Re: Moto Xoom UK - still waiting
What he said.
I clung on for a few months like a smitten teenager hoping Motorola would lavish ICS upon me but in the end I saw the reality of it. 7 months since the US Wi-Fi only Xoom got ICS and yet we still wait for it here in the UK? F-off Motorola.
GEDify your Xoom. It's definitely worth it and once, or maybe if, Moto UK get round to rolling out ICS in the UK then you can flash back to UK ICS if you fancy. Hell, they might even jump ICS and roll out Jellybean instead, but that might be the caffeine talking. The difference in performance of the same hardware running 4.0/4.1 compared to 3.2 is frankly unacceptable in the fact that I fail to take in how much positive difference the OS upgrade makes to the same physical piece of kit.
Sky Sports Pass?
To be fair if I can pay a smaller (& REASONABLE) amount for Sky Sports only rather than ponying up for the sports and the 90% of keech I don't ever watch then I'll probably do it.
Re: Jellybean on the xoom?
I got sick of waiting for Motorola UK to pull its finger out so I flashed to the US Xoom GED ROM. Totally different device, fast, smooth, reinvigorated it. I am astounded by it. Jellybean will be here soon so I'll probably continue to use the US ROMs until the UK ones are available and swap back when they are. Trust me, go for it, you'll not look back at all.
Ethio Telecom internet
Presumably because there is already Government informing snooping kit of some sort on Ethio Telecom?
What a prat
Not free App
Says £1.49 for me. May just be for me though......
I thought the article said they HADN'T signed an NDA?
Brown or Japs surely would be more appropriate, if a little less PC?
Seems like everyone else agrees
that this Belkin unit, compared to others available in similar or larger capacities is horribly over-priced. I expect to see this in airport electrical shops at list price + 50%
That list is pure jokes. A lot of self-congratulatory fellatio going on there.
iOS5 is Apple's mobile device Vista
Certainly in my experience on my 4th gen Touch. Noticeably slower operation, repeatable freezes, takes an age to unlock, several crashes.
Downvote me, I don't care, I only speak the truth.
"With the company apparently unwilling to lend a hand"
What a clusterf***
Honestly, do RIM employ anyone in upper echelons that is capable of critically assessing a product spec & function before moving from alpha to prototype to production? Are they all deep-cover Android & Apple execs?
This 'device' will surely be held up as a shining example of how NOT to do a tablet. Honestly, if there was a process flow diagram I'd bet money that the RIM executives travelled down every 'No' branch on the page to arrive at the fail known as the Playbook. And that includes the naming process.
Do they not get it?
Apple can charge a premium because they are Apple, Samsung phones running Android can't because, quite simply, they aren't Apple. Everyone knows Apple makes hench cash off their hardware so why not settle to take a realistic profit from the hardware and still undercut the iPhone by a substantial margin to gather a lot more sales and revenue than the Apple-istic price point they announced.
I was interested in this before the price was announced, now it has been announced I am not. I'll stick with my DHD
Don't see how it helps......
And how does that help when you're parked next a bloody pillar or something in a car park?

Change your name. Not that big of a deal.

Re: And they want us to buy this?
I'd say nokia were doing a damn good job of destroying everything that was good about themselves way before Microsoft got involved.
They count using the phone....on a phone.....as an app
Way to go

Shill or tonguing douchebag?
Undecided. can i have both?
No Desire HD?
Please explain El Reg....
Given there's a theoretical max of upwards of 5m people tryign to play the same game at the same time I'm not surprised!
I am so there when it comes to my neighbourhood.
Regardless of your feelings for Apple
You gotta admit as a cash making enterprise they're doing pretty damn well!
Punish the people using more than their fair share? WTF?
Do we all have a defined 'fair share' and we're not allowed to go over it?
You make it sound like a crime for someone to use their internet connection, that they will be paying for, as they see fit. (traffic volume, not traffic content)
Do they not check these things before rolling out??????
Must contain letters? French.
