Samsung Galaxy S8+: Seriously. What were they thinking?


The TRONC challenge

How 'bout you guys come with a topic and we try to make a script about the topic that beats TRONC and really delivers it to the users.

Then you can choose 2 of your best editors/journalists/etc... to deliver a nice Youtube clip.

You can make it as a competition.

I propose the first rules:

- the final clip should be 1:30 - 3:00 minutes long

- the script should be to the point and clearly relevant to the topic

- someone not knowing the topic must not be able to guess it (except if lucky) by looking at the first half of the clip

If you wanna do this I trust you will be able to add an appropriate prize for the winner. My proposal for the prize would be golden, silver and bronze bollocks for the winner and next 2.

Definition "estimated"

Be fair to them!

On indiegogo it says "estimated" September 2016.

"Estimated" means +- 1 year. Unless it is +- 2 years.

Simple arithmetic

7w x 30000 IOPS/w = 210000 IOPS

It is 270000 only in marketing.

Don't – don't – install iOS 9.3 on your iPad 2: Upgrade bricks slabs


Worked for me

Upgraded this morning before reading the article. Had space on it so iOS already on iPad when upgrade started. Took more that half an hour in total.

Works, same speed as before (slow).

Why the smart-asses at Apple decided to change some of the config settings to new defaults (Cloud is ON after the update) I don't understand. They say they're not in the business of monetizing our data but they behave as it they were.

So no issues until now.

PS: direct upgrade, not via iTunes.

Ethnic treatment of Animals

White bears allowed, black bears not ? :D

BTW - tons of results on Google for this misspelling.

And same misspelling on http://www.computerandvideogames.com/326059/peta-frowns-at-marios-use-of-tanooki-fur/ which cites Kotaku as a source. No misspelling at Kotaku.

Maybe you should mention your sources :)))

UFO fleet menaces east London

Thumb Down

How 'bout a flag instead of an UFO ?

The white color around the "UFO's" is different from the clouds and flag-shaped. They also appear pretty close to what can be a mast...
