Ok I give up - not even urban dictionary knows what butterfly marks are.
Where is the proof that sage are shedding customers due to a poor cloudy offering.
It could just as easily be that the mass majority of them see no cloudy benefits.
Can I be the first to coin the phrase Cloudorohoea?
So it watches you, and it listens to you? Presumably with a red dot in the middle of the screen at all times?
Can see it now:
"I'm sorry Dave I can't allow you to do that"
As the massive battery is discharged into your soon to be twitching corpse.
Have you read Everfree by Nick Sagan (son of Carl) perchance?
What you mean just like dozens of Anonymous should have known better?
Even if it's your job it's hard to stay paranoid 100% of the time. Especially if you only want to keep things private rather than actually keep things hidden.
That depends if how they use their second iPad allowance and flip it between the rest of the family.
BTW just how many pages of a4 do you need to print to exceed the cost of an iPad?
Double btw - how long before an MP looses his iPad with something secret on it?
You should try understanding the Oz vs Paddy compromise rules then :)
Hello Barry. Paranoid much?
I'll stick with my 3 year old vaio TT. As mentioned above its one of the Expensive Sony's. Slightly thicker (23mm) than whats in vogue these days but at 11" much easier to fit in a bag/rucksack corner than a 13". Also approriate screensize for the size (same as the Naffbooks 1366 ish).
An importantly more ports than you can shake a stick at.
And built like an engineering masterpiece inside with the option for Raid SSD's.
Why on earth did they waste time creating "special" editions of their most boring and mediocre laptops?
Yes but whats actually likely to be the biggest variable Ability or the Content of the course/paper.
I would assume the latter by a significant amount.
I've also seen the bell curve model work well at Uni. We had a radically different, harder course to the previous years Quantum Mechanics course and to cut a long story short the pass mark dropped to around 35% and a first could be had for about 55% if memory serves, yet the number in each of the grades were roughly the same as compared to the previous year.
If this really is an alpha build RIM are fuscked.
Hopefully it's just a label. If its not in late beta/rtm After all this time RIM deserve to fail.
Just checked the PDF.
Bottom 5 : UK
Top 5 : USA (I kid you not)
Sounds like the designers of this software would be far better off working commercially and ploughing the profits into their independence campaign rather than shooting or blowing things up.
The written version of a cymbal being hit to indicate the punchline of a joke.
I would assume that non-humans particle accelerators are more powerful. If only for the fact that they are attached to their frikkin space sharks at the head of their invasion fleet.
Silly me - I thought the only requirement for down voting a trolling fanboi was that we actually hate the crap you post regardless of who our employers are.
Fond memories of it coming into the IAT at Fairford one year....
Not forgetting the Frankie Goes to Hollywood game. With Hock a Logie spitting sub game if I remember rightly. Was standalone though - didnt come on a B side afaik.
Am I the only one who was lame enough to load the spectrum game that came with one of Shakin Stevens album.
Nice column improved over last weeks.
I think Blackpool must be doing it wrong.
You have exactly the same costs detailed as with Employer devices. The only additional costs should be running 2 services during the cut over (eg BB and Good), problems with the granularity of the licenses (ie cant reduce BB licenses coz they come in blocks of 1000), and if the BYOD managment space is less mature than your existing set up - so more costly to run.
If you do it right I cant see why it would cost you more - unless of course you have failed to do the cost-benefit going into it beforehand - in which case serves you right.
The Regulatory fines space is a red herring. Properly implemented BYOD policies should reduce this risk not increase it. For instance by removing the need to email a work doc to you home address to work on it at home.
Duh. Did you miss the bit about near infra red?
To any other Ipad keyboard. I personally am awaiting the availability of the Adonit Writer 2 plus for the iPad 3.
Obviously not Lewis' as they would come marked as published before.
Nuclear Power - check.
Silly Carrier decisions - check.
Lifted above the other karate games by the 3 player option and the dozen or so easter eggs like dropping their trousers and the worm across the screen.
No up to El Regs usual standards.
As per the rest of the commentards plenty of REO production exists outside of china.
Take that away you have a story that high tech electronics contain RE's. Although its obviously not mentioned that the quantities are miniscule.
Wasnt it MS who came up with a secondard display in the top of a laptop lid as a cunning ruse to sell more Win Mob licenses.
This seems very similar - especially the bit about selling Win Mob/WinPho licenses :)
Most of the ipad handwriting Apps simulate a piece of paper of much smaller size than the 20% smaller than A4 ipad screen.
Most of the Apps tend to show text at a fairly high level of zoom for this reason. they also tend to have auto - CR's or "follow along the full length of the line" functionality as a result.
It takes some pratice to use the iPad as an A4 notepad.
Handwriting recognition varies hughly between apps but is a pretty reasonable on the good (paid) apps.
I have a Pro too. It comes with a Alu machined screw top cap. Mine tended to come undone on its own after a week or so boucing around under my iPad or laptop in the bottom of my bag.
The Pro includes a magnet that sticks to Smart Covers and the internal ipad magnets - good for meeting room posing.
The little plastic crosshairs are replaceable from Ebay or Adonit directly. Note that the pen doesnt work without the plastic bit.
Waiting for the Jot Touch with pressure sensitivity.
Also waiting for the Adonit Writer 2 Plus Keyboard but thats another story.
Followed by the next sentence referencing the Kindle Fire - a tablet.
Well Done! /SlowHandClap
What was the point of this article apart from the fact that you believe the only valid consumption device is dedicated ebook reader, and that you deliberately ignored the other Ebook sellers outthere?
Are you the mutant offspring of Matt Assay and Lewis Page? More mono-focused than Lewis and even less relevant than Matt?
In Practice (according to the reivew) no
This guy seems more of a credible ex-engineer than a bean counting idiot like Elop.
Probably a better alround smartphone than the X but with a nobbled memory.
Did it stay with the spinon, orbiton or wander off by itself to cry in the corner all alone?
Is this result really that significant? Afaik this wasn't a true splitting of a discrete electron but rather the apparent shift of some of its properties around the electron sea in a semi conductor - whilst it's an exciting result - it's not the revelation that breaking apart a single electron orbiting a hydrogen atom would be.
Having said that it may have theoretical and practical uses analogous to the 'electron holes' concept in semi-conductors.
The Computer pages on C4 were good/bonkers. (cant remember if digitize were the original one or the poor outsourced imitation)
We still have it in the UK, there are slightly differing flavours on Freeview, FreeSat and Sky.
Cant speak for Virgin.
The core content (news/weather) is the same. What actually happened was that the Internet took over the non-core stuff like Holidays etc.
Arguably the content is less interesting but thats just because the range is smaller and there are other/better delivery channels.
the cynic in me suggests that should read:
Breakneck speeds or low latency or excellent coverage or less base stations
Any manufacturer worth their salt has Arm tablets in their labs running Win8, Android, Ubuntu and probably WebOS and Meego.
A media consumption device without Windows Media Player - WFT!!!!!!!
Will they be installing Media Player Classic instead?
Unfortunately no-one had thought through the implications of a well matured Brie aboard the ISS.
There is a huge difference between Apple TV and MCE codec packs - I've found nothing that MCE won't play with a small collection of codec packs installed.
Nothing about DECC using the information for their own commercial purposes? Or being able to opt in or out of the purposes
Was how much of the potential Mars budget they were going to piss away on Web 2.0 and social Meedja bollocks.
A mix of appliances and hyper scale servers to me.
Craming more compute power into lower data Center volumes.
Someone comes up with a plan that does rely on a increasingly dodgy looking handset and OS proposition and no one has the balls to try it out.
RIM thy end is nigh.
Tony Stark or iRon Man?
