For that kind of money, the keyboard should come with a bunch of cigars, some whisky, and a troupe of dancing girls.

If publishers decide to stop supplying Amazon, would that be anti-competitive? Or, could the publisher be penalised for that? Surely that's a B2B transaction, customers would still be able to get the books from Waterstones or WHSmith or [name your poison]. It just wouldn't be available through the Amazon channel.
Sure, if publishers acted in concert and it impacted consumers (e.g., price-fixing) then they should be done, but if they all, en masse, stopped supplying Amazon, could they be done for that?
I put a couple of CDs in the car to play. The wife and kids have had at them, and now the jewel cases are missing, the inserts are all over the place and the CDs are scratched to buggery.
I've already ripped most of my CDs to mp3, I have an emotional need for physical media; so much so that I have actually started buying vinyl again.
But I've learned my lesson and the kids can play with mp3s to their heart's content.
I thought HTC had decided they were going to release a set of phones (One X, One S, and One V) and concentrate on those?
And now they're releasing a new phone instead of updating their existing range?
I've had my One X since O2's release day, and I love it. If I could get a bit more battery life, that would be great, so I could go 36 hrs on one charge.
4.1 should not be too much of a change from 4.0.4, but still, where is their focus?
My understanding is that Apple took Samsung to court for their Touchwiz capabilities, i.e., the skin overlaying Android, not Android itself.
So those who don't overly-embellish Android with Apple-like functionality should be okay.
Take your point on the MS royalty though.
From the article: "Sky did, on the whole, engage constructively," the ruling adds. "Sky has no theological objection to wholesale supply of its premium channels"
Is wholesale supply of entertainment a subject of theological study? Maybe it forms part of the commandments of the Dead Sea Scrolls? (I've not read them)
Or do they mean idealogical?
I'm on 4.0.3 on a HTC One X and there are already custom roms (unstable) for Jelly Bean (4.1.0). Google have released a 4.0.4, but since I'm on O2 it hasn't got to me yet.
Knowing that there are later versions out there which I don't have does annoy me.
In truth, I don't need it. My current phone and software works fine.
I'm just greedy and desirous of the new 'shiny'.
I'm not even sure what improvements are in the latest update - it's just newer.
What I *would* like an update which means I don't have to recharge my phone every 36 hours.
Never had this problem/enjoyed this feature with my Nokia 3210 :)
The fact that spokespeople have suggested not using their mobes except in 'urgent' or 'necessary' situations makes me want to organise a tweeting flashmob at all Olympic events.
Of course people are going to tweet and use Facebook at these events, they're probably the most interesting thing to happen to the users in an age (and that's not a dig - if I was there, I would tweet, update my FB status and check in using Foursquare. Think of the pointage on that!). Of course they want to record the events for posterity. If people are taking photos and they have Dropbox synced up those photos will be going up to 'the cloud' as well, so the networks can't blame unexpected usage.
They need to cope; beef it up however that's done, and expect people to use the service they provide. It's not rocket science, is it?
I've got a One X on O2, it's working fine, except for the battery monitoring, it seems a bit stuttery - i.e., the device stays on xx% for ages and then drops like a stone. If it did this smoothly I would have no issue.
I'm hoping O2 release the updates soon, maybe this is due to be fixed.
