They need to get to work porting Android 2 to 3 for x86 first, no-one is going to buy an Atom tablet running Android 1.6.

Very true used to love MobiReader on my old PDA, it first showed me how handy eBook readers would be!
Now using FBReader on Android and Calibre on my PC, I can buy book from anywhere and put them on my 4" phone, who on earth would want to cart an iPad around, it's bigger and heavier than a hardback!
The problem is with the studios who create the HD mix for Bluray, I'm surprised to see no-one has looked to see if many of the titles missing the HD sparkle are old films recently re-released.
Many older titles are obviously just up-mixed DVD copies that offer very little extra detail, only new films seem to have the real sharpness of HD video and obviously like Zulu and Gandhi some films are properly remastered from the original but many are not.
As said by others the patching problem has already been addressed by Google using the same methodology that will cure fragmentation, over the next couple of releases Android will become a collection of smaller apps that will all update through the market.
And for anyone saying Android is the new WinMo, you obviously never used WinMo as even the old 1.5 Android actually works out of the box, unlike many of my old WinMo phones.
I'm sure the EU making noise about investigating the iPhone had nothing to do with it, Jobs even backed down on some of his more extreme plans for developers and what tools they could use.
Opera may have faced them down but it was the shadow of a large EU fine that really had them running scared.
Paranoid much ? If you did a little research (or had a little knowledge) you would know Chrome updates to a new stable release every 6 weeks, with any new product Google releases they slow the releases once they catch up with the competition.
Why would Safari contain Google code ? Both based on WebKit but not on each other.
Fail indeed sir.
So any chance of listing:
*Which phones suffer from the problems
*What firmware version they are running
*How many actual people are having these problems
That would maybe be a few too many facts for this author, such as the fact that Android has supported bluetooth keyboards since the Dell Streak launched. D'oh!
It's funny how nobody listens to the mentally ill people shouting this nonsense in the street, yet big corporations pay this idiot to day dream what we should all be scared of tomorrow.
His smart dust won't work because my future air con will have genetically enhanced beetles that eat dust then automatically wrap and post their crap back to this guy.
I think taking it from tax is a bad idea, this makes it much too close to the government.
Add a tax to broadband, I be happy to add, say £2 a month to my broadband package if it went straight to the BBC, the make the best TV generally and their web presence is great.
Turn off Eastenders and other big star driven nonsense (golden handcuffs etc.)
If you make programs to compete with commercial television then by proxy you are commercial without the income.
"It’s expensive, but I don’t care: if you want cheap, go buy a tombstone."
Typical rabid iTard, Really let down by this review, for instance does the new thicker shell stop the cracking that has plagued my old white Macbook (I'm on the 3rd top case in 2 years)
Will Apple collect and return under their warranty yet ?
I got pretty cheesed off having to drive 16 miles outside of Edinburgh (nearest Apple store is Glasgow) to leave my Macbook in for repair then drive back a week later to collect. Even my old £300 HP (never again) was collected from my door and repaired within 3 working days.
These are all the sticky little questions most Apple fans can't answer in a review because they are selling you the same cult like lifestyle they enjoy.
It's expensive alright and since I can buy an Asus laptop with Core i3, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD and a 2 year collect and return warranty @ £450 I would say this Macbook is DOUBLE the cost of a normal PC not just more expensive.
That phone is older than the Hero (my phone) which is pretty old in the world of smartphones.
You could install a debranded ROM to activate all your features and remove all the Orange crap or go the whole hog with rooting and a custom ROM.
Check out XDA the great thing about HTC smartphones is just how much customization can be done.
Funny how they link this to the iPad and not to the load of new thin, cheap and light ULV laptops around.
They have stolen sales from Netbooks because they use actual working CPUs like Celeron or Pentium dual core ULV, which even running at 1.2GHz are twice as fast as an Atom.
They start at around £350 too so make a much better buy than a Netbook or an iPad
Anyone using Windows backup to save 900 GB of data needs their head read.
It's a consumer product and a compression based backup will crawl with that amount of data, just make disk images or get a RAID set up if your 900GB of files are so important.
Personally I've always used Acronis, I use it for customer backups and while there may be faster products out there Acronis is rock solid for reliability.
