Agree it should have been contingent on agreeing to the 4g spectrum auction.
Erm maybe the fact that if you don't have a LTE network you will still have both 3G and 2g to fallback on kinda means 1800 not being a world wide band is a big deal in the short-medium term. Besides which no-one in their right mind who pays their own bills is going to be interested in paying the extortionate rates that 4g roaming will be at.
..in the eye for Vod and o2 who are fighting tooth and nail to keep the 2g spectrum they were awarded for free?
However not sure that the Regulator using an accident of logistics and business to define the initial 4G landscape is very professional.
Surely most of the progress towards a 4g auction could be solved by getting the respective network heads all in a room together and hammering out a deal?
Oh I forgot - its not about effecient use of spectrum its about a Quango justifying its existence.
I would say its also about maximising revenue from that spectrum for the Govt and Taxpayers, but they are making such a hash of it the concept is laughable.
Its obviously a grow by pieces strategy rather than a big bang approach. The key points will be converging the product lines into something coherent. Not sure if dell have a great record of that.
It smacks of a toe in the water exercise with no real confidence to make a decent sized purchase.
when the sandpit became worth a gazillion dollars.
But whining about a stereotype is just soooo stereotypical.
Cue spiralling responses culminating in a negative reality inversion.
The Jester was thrown into the same cell as Lulzsec.
You are missing the point. These "low power" GPU's are benefiting from 10+ years of GPU and HPC arms races and because of their highly parallel nature they are almost pre-optimised for low power simply by cutting down the number of units from their mainstream cousins.
They were *made* for this application baby!
The ipad 2 gpu capabilities were widely acknowledged as some of if not the best in class, with plenty of headroom for the future - even if there has been a drop in headroom I expect it to be marginal.
The 2x/4x graphics debate is very limited thinking. We've long passed the point where bitmap processing is the be all and end all of graphics processing.
Vector processing is king and the number of pixels is just a sideshow. name a credible graphics technology in the past 5 years that hasnt laughed at HD+ resolutions.
I'm betting that the iPad 3 is not only easily capable of pushing the extra pixels but also more capabable f juggling all the overheads associated with gaming jiggery pokery.
All those applications need more enabling technologies than the ability to print small things quickly.
Dont you think Apple would have already done the Cost Benefit analysis on this and included exactly whether and when this was worth doing.
So in effect this story is Apple refuses to discuss long term detailed business plans with press.
Just like every other major manufacturer.
Yet another reason my addins will be disabled next time firefox updates me to the quarterly released "major" version updates.
Depends on how you use deep.
Or Blue Hades
Think the rumours confused 2 things. The avatar sequel and the 3-d cave diving film that he supported and lent all his equiment to.
Just for comparisons sake it would be interesting to know the avg and peak score for the Folding or Seti@home networks. Suspect they come very high in the price/performance mix.
Shame they all have better things to do than run Linpack :)
The resolution was the only topic in the post I replied to feel free to widen the topic on another post.
Fact is there are NO competitors shipping hi res tabs and probably won't be for 2-3 months at best.
Some lucky pre-orders on the apple store last night will have theirs in their sweaty palms in a weeks time.
The iPad already has dozens of office suites with ms compatability and with UI's built for touch and cloud storage support.
If I'm desparate to use office itself I can pay a one off fee for LogMeIn or similar to use the office installed on my desktop or laptop again which have UI's that help manage the touch to WIMP conversion.
Why on earth would I use Onlive at £5 a month?
Am I the only one who sees this as a fondle slab killer?
Put the tech in a phone with a vertical stand and an angled Projector onto the desk and instant fondleslab.
To the best of my knowledge the Govt can ask the networks to switch alKulk(?) mode which prioritises specific sims across any network and ask the networks to close to normal punters for the duration of an emergency. Basically only people in possession of these sims can then make calls.
Typical people in possession of them are emergency series and armed forces and more prosaically members of the telcos DR/BC teams.
And where is all this Ultrabook deman going to come from pray tell?
No sign of it yet.
I for one welcome our Jan 2013 heavily discounted ultrabook minions.
As above. Time and again AMD have failed to leverage the industry trends to get a jump on Chipzilla and others or even come out with a credible alternative until the mass market has already arrived.
To whit :
Arm (Tegra etc)
Missing many of these is no shame. Missing all of them - especially when they have in house knowledge is uttter, utter incompetence (in house knowledge = GPU's, SoC's etc)
Im a big AMD fan but it looks to me like they will continue to struggle for relevance in the Tween years of the decade.
Liar. You utter muppet.
Show me the site that says we give any international aid to china. Its certainly not listed on the Department For International Developments Projects Site
There was a TiVo box for freesat and freeview.
You mean like media centre which has been built into most versions of windows since vista?
Most tv's support smart switching on hdmi - it's the other kit that doesn't.
Well duh! It's relevant because he's probably using iplayer on a smart tv or stb or console - therefore the ui requirements are the same.
But only when I find a really good porn site
Are most of them so fugly and un-ergonomic? Swear I have RSI just from looking at them.
Am I the only one who appreciates function over pointless styling?
Honestly it looks like decided that the rodents only function was to match an Alienware box or laptop.
I assumed there would be completely separate shells, with maybe a shared bit of common design language where the metro ui is also useful for the desktop and something like an uber-CSS that reskins and changes the ui of shared touch enabled apps like office.
This sounds like a frankinsteins monster.
They didnt flop. MS neglected them, then in the case of Win Mob were criminally slow in updating it with touch, so threw the baby out with the bath water.
CE is in all sorts of things to this day.
WinMob was as good as non-touch symbian.
Unfortuntely M$ have a distressing tendency to re-invent the wheel every few years - especially in the in the non-core windows space and make everyone including themselves have to re-code everything.
If MS actually stuck with a single set of paradigms for a decent span they would save everyone effort.
1. Agree to what ever is needed to get data.
2. Get Data.
BE are probably the second best ISP I have used.
No iPlayer issues here but a quit a few DNS and router issues using the bebox.
Eclipse were better but not worth the Price and caps in comparison.
I tend to agree but would note that Aplle have a better record of "innovations" that customers seem to want. Even when that innovation has more than a little whiff of emperors new clothes about it. *cough* FaceTime *cough*
Normal Matt Asay service is resumed. I was getting worried he's abnormally rational of late.
What Matt seems to have missed is that Apple like some of the other premium brands doesn't give a shit for market share never has done never will do - at least not at the expense of price.
None of Matts pontificating changes the acknowledged facts even a child knows - until the next disruptive entrant or product enters Apple will own the High End and Android the low end. As always Apple will hover up money like a Banker with a bag of charlie on a hookers tits, whilst the android crowd will be fishing in bins for butts to make a roll up (in cash terms).
Indeed - thats a laughable advantage - about the length of an index finger. I bet the power transfer drops off over that distance as well.
I see a contradiction here.
1. If he is a working exec of all those companies then there is no way in hell he could have detailed knowledge of the shop floor of each of them.
2. If 1 is true - then no need to move.
Therefore either he had a handson role at NI and is probably guilty of something or he was not handson and not guilty.
Since he moved - he must have been handson and guilty.
Which ever way you cut it he is guilty.
<< than 2.5% I'm willing to bet.
A smart tv like device with a bloody long hdmi cable attached. Concept fail. It baffles me how many manufacturers waste time with a hdmi connection on a table. I'll bet the vast majority go unused.
Or knee jerk trolls eh Barry?
Truth hurts - especially if you are as blinkered as BSP.
Then they should pressure google to fix whatever design flaw that stops the apps from requesting changed permissions on update.
What they should do is request permissions they don't need at the moment.
Seems like an android weakness tbh.
I wonder if they have lost .1 of an inch somewhere? Especially given the different resolution.
Err the average memory on a new windows laptop is 3-4gb add in a bit more for stuff in the swap file and that's your cache blown.
Probably the reason seagate went for 8Gb.
Really? Care to advise us what your notebook is?
I'm guessing it's something fairly bog standard.
Just bear in mind you were never the customer an ultrabook was looking for. Whether those customers actually exist at at all is another matter of course....
To be fair until the noggins come up with a more effecient way of building at the atomic level than with electron microscope then true nanotechnology remains pretty far away mores the pity
Ditto the iPad in work comment. Half the management have their personal iPads in use for work, the company is currently trialling Good on them.
All that porn must have benefited someone.
Why would you?
The kindle cloud reader is a html5 app that has an offline mode.
The money most certainly does not belong to the shareholders.
Do you know anything about shareholding whatsoever?
