Dont they realise that some people like stability and dont want updates and features(like bugs) continuously added?

Looks messy to me. In the video, he opens an app and the window size isnt big enough.
We cant go on with a windows 2000 start menu and UI forever and ever. There is definitely room for improvement, especially for users who dont have a touchscreen but I think most people will just get used to it.
Its just an instant messenger and not even a free one! People like sheep have gone with bbm just because their friends are on it, without realising that there are multi platform equivalents available. But with all your pals chatting away, who is going to go out in the cold and leave first for an android or iphone?
I dont use facebook but you would think that the default setting for this 'checking in' rubbish would be to display to friends only, just what is the point in making that information public? If the default is to friends only and they've changed it to public then i think those users are very naive.
Its like that episode of The Simpsons when Homer designs a car- they've just put everything on it. Its like they've got no idea what they actually want to do with it and just making the same psp mistakes(i love my 2000 series btw). For all its features there's not a single game that interests me though, yet...
thought the demo was utter crap.
Nothing like the original Driver. Many times i switched to a different vehicle and when i switched back my car had hit a wall. In one police chase I just sat still and the police drove right past.
The car handling left me cold, loose, light and arcadey. Someone said its more like Crazy Taxi than Driver, i agree!
Inexperienced users cant be expected to have to deal with all this crapware that comes with the average windows pc. Ideally its got to just work and have everything you need already installed. Why dont Microsoft release a pc that is tamper proof and locked down, just like their Xbox? This is a step in the right direction.
With a screen that big, I really cannot see the battery lasting as long as they claim. And word processing and spreadsheets on a touch screen? Sorry, I just cant imagine it working too well.
And just how are you meant to hold it? Its 7.5 inches wide. Balance it on one hand while typing one handedly with the other? Rest it on your lap and stare down at 90 degrees?
As for ripping dvds- I could have watched a film by the time it would take me to rip and transfer a film.
It will have great software support though, that is vital. If only my psp was given as much love.
So £500 and £30 a month for a bit of web browsing on the move, no ta.
