There's no hint of crowdfunding, so hopefully the hiccups Vega+ buyers experienced won't be an issue.
Did they actually ship them (Vega+) yet? I've not found a recent article on them to confirm one way or the other.
'Just watch the film "Idiocracy" - and think of Trump's America.'
Just think of Trump's America and there's no reason to watch the film "Idiocracy"*

It's not April 1st in the US, is it?
Feels like every day in the US has been 1st April since mid January...
a list like this is going to need maintenance and who's going to do that?
The owner of CODEOWNERS, obviously.
Exactly how professional does one need to be to repair the certified unrepairable?
Surprised Captain Cyborg hasn't been dug up for comment.
There's such a thing as trying too hard.
In fairness, I suspect the reporter was just rusty on the details; File Manager in Win3x seems to behave broadly in the manner described (notwithstanding the incorrectly oriented slash in the story -- tsk tsk).
Although it's not abundantly clear from the screenshot if it's telling you the filesystem format, or the admin simply labelled the drive "FAT" -- and my first hand memory of such things is far too hazy now.
Also "Swegway" is a thing. Difficult to decide who's riffing off whom.
Mmmm ... irony.
I assumed it was one and the same when I saw the first reports of this 123 debacle. Curiously prescient. Though Marco came across somewhere between "trollish" and "massively incompetent".
There's nothing like a little entrapment :-)
On one hand Uber may be dodging tax and screwing their drivers.
On the other hand, to paraphrase Darwin, evolve or die (can't guarantee you won't do one then the other though).
Can't say I'm thrilled with the former, the latter sits fine with me.
The last 4 characters of that YouTube link (the link itself) triggered my (childish) snirking reflex.
Not on the S6 and S6 edge. Where have you been?
Off somewhere appreciating sarcasm, I'd imagine.
If my work laptop is anything to go by, the whole disk encryption software login interface would look entirely unfamiliar (and possibly even a bit suspicious, in a Fisher Price sort of way) to large swathes of the public. I'm assuming the Security Officer was simply looking for something Windows-ish that she could identify with to assure her this wasn't some sort of mock up.
So the thief just puts the stolen watch on their own wrist, assuming they have a pulse.
Press WinKey and Left/Right cursor to move a Window about from half to half. I don't know of a mouse equivalent.
You might as well have gone the whole hog and wrapped your comment with:
"I'm not racist, but..."
from waters breaking to birth.
Until I got to that part, I was assuming it was a boast, of sorts, highlighting the other end of the pregnancy.
... software support.
There's enough fragmentation due to varying hardware platforms in the Android arena (for example) at the moment. Seems to me that all the necessary virtualisation/abstraction layers it would require for everything to play nicely together (or even at all) and relying on myriad component vendors to maintain a decent level of support would make for a phone which would perform somewhere between "like shit" and "not at all".
On many fronts, implementation would be a total bitch - but I do love the idea.

In my experience the endorsements are even more trivial than described.
If you click through an endorsement notification (or click the "Endorse Connections" link from your profile page) it pops up a selection of contacts with a single skill already selected for you. All you have to do is hit the yellow button to spam them all with some profile cruft. You don't even have to read (let alone think about) who you're endorsing or what you're endorsing them with.
It utter shite.
Arguably that mission was already accomplished by the salesperson... when they convinced the punter to buy the WinMoPho in the first place.
Yes, yes I'm leaving...
Read your own post much?
"TBH for £22 you can't really complain ..."
Anecdotal evidence indicates that other suppliers are providing the goods in a timely fashion, while RS continues to flounder.
For £22 you are entitled to complain about shoddy service.
Hell, for £1 you are entitled to complain.
The product is cheap therefore you don't deserve good service from the reseller? Now that's some good logic!
... with my 7 inch Ainol -- with which I can assure you that 5 fingers is more than enough.

I remember that sequence and the Sony rep definitely removed the disc from the player. I presume the player was either specially modified for the purpose of the demonstration or the music playback was simply faked for the TV audience -- it's certainly not a feature I could see having any value in a production device...
If you'd ever used The Register app* before you'd know that that's precisely what happened. Only without the apology (unless you count this article).
* On Android, can't speak for t'other
You have 14 minutes to comply!
Lucky you. Clearly the best solution for you is to not use this service. That's not exactly a hardship, is it?
As per other responses, my experience with Three is that they do not detect my infrequent tethering activities via wifi hotspot (or if they do, they've never done anything about it).
Not that I do much other than a bit of web browsing and, very occasionally, some VPN from my work laptop.
However, I have an unbranded phone -- Three branded phones may have a software restriction.
From the video the raised areas look like fixed locations, presumably only switchable between portrait and landscape if your keyboard layouts overlap appropriately.
As such, I wouldn't get your hopes up about smoothly sliding a bump around the screen just yet.
(Based on the Android version)
* Doesn't show your monthly income (yes I can use a calculator but how hard is for the app to x/12 the result?)
* Doesn't allow you to specify your tax code (so it gives me a higher gross income than is reality)
I'll stick with ListenToTaxman thanks.
Thankfully I'm not in such a locked down environment so can't speak from experience, but I use the portable version of KeePass and would assume (please correct if wrong) that this would work in such a "you can't install stuff" organisation. Unless of course the policies are granular enough to only allow certain EXEs to be run.
Why stop there?
You shouldn't use share a computer keyboard or mouse.
Don't take the lift, those buttons will be filthy. But be careful of the hand rail as you take the stairs.
Don't flush the toilet, you know where those hands have been. You can't be sure the last person washed their hands properly before turning off that tap either. Watch out for that door handle on your way out too! In fact, any door handle.
In fact just put on your paper suit and stay out of public places altogether, Mr Hughes.
Hmmm I might have encountered that, though only seems to affect photos for me (not much else on my SD card to be fair) and it seemed to be more about number of files in a directory. Once I'd breached a certain amount new ones wouldn't appear in the gallery without a rescan (and then vanished again later). I worked around the issue by moving my old pics into "/sdcard/old_pics".
$29.90 ... for 2GB, presumably?
At those prices they can stick 'em up their arse instead.
I'm with FanMan.
I thought "why would I need a SatNav?", until I acquired my old man's cranky old TomTom One via handmedown. With stock software (who knows what delights the hacking community have come up with) it pisses all over Google Nav in most respects.
Even if you just look at the "alternative route" navigation features, it's the clear winner - you can't tell Google Nav to avoid a particular road or navigate you around a traffic jam ahead (or that you are in) can you?
Oh and you're not reliant on a data connection to recalculate your route.
A couple of hours ago I sprung £130 for an Ainol Novo 7 Aurora (w/ ICS), after seeing a colleagues in action (rooted).
Seem like tidy bits of kit and way better spec'd than these Gemini things on a lowly 7 incher
A10 processor (single core) 1.5Ghz
Probably using binary compression.
10 Take a string
20 Represent it in binary
30 Zeroes have no value, so throw them away
40 You are left with a string of ones, count them
50 GOTO 20
Some data loss may occur...
What exactly makes them think I want to take my (fairly) slim and (reasonably) moveable plasma TV and replace it with a fucking sideboard?
If you buy the cheapest of the cheap, maybe. But if you spend a little more you'll find the things like look like wood are chipboard with a veneer coating, with a naturally occurring wood pattern.
Good to see now that Moto are owned by Google (or soon to be) that their devices are right on the cutting edge for Android updates.
There's definitely an element of the random in which way things fall. I've previously started a level (in the "original") where the pieces "settle" slightly at the start of the level -- on one attempt (and only one attempt), a pig on a high tower rolled off to its doom before I'd fired a single shot.
Penguin ... well, it's a bird innit?
