Sounds like the ideal companion to my eFiloFax!
I noticed on a recent trip to Egypt that whenever anyone answered a call on their Nokia feature phone, they invariably listened and spoke with the buttons outwards. Having experienced more than one dropped call or embarrassing mid-conversation tone from face-pressing, I though that was actually a pretty good idea.
"general notebook users won't notice performance differences between Arm and low-end Xeon-powered notebooks."
Is this correct? New, mobile workstation-class ARM chips would be insane. New, low end Pentium beating ARMs would be cool, but not quite the same.
If the bottle contains more than 15.5 2mg 'doses' it's better value than Ocado's piss weak version.
Pint because that'll have more effect
I find it more annoying that pages jump around like buggery as they load. Particularly on slower connections. I'm fed up with trying to click a link only for the page to shift causing me to click on an ad instead. Enabling scroll anchoring in Chrome has very hit and miss results.
Hi had mine for 2 years and it lasted a day with ease. You would like need a case for it though - I'd be surprised if the battery went before you cracked either the front or back glass
Pretty sure it's established el Reg style to use per cent in body copy, with the symbol in headlines. Not my preferred style, but it seems to be applied consistently.

Do Apple devices do full multitasking now? Of not, that would explain the difference in RAM required.
Given the brouhaha around the P10 internal storage lottery, is there any explicit mention of what type of flash memory is used in the Honor 8 Pro?
There were a lot of complaints about the use of slower eMMC flash storage, rather than the fast UFS 2.0 in the P10 due to availability issues. If the H8Pro uses UFS2 that could make it an even more attractive prospect.
If I didn't have midget hands it would likely be on my upgrade wish list. Still might be actually.
Sadly, there aren't a lot of options if you have Trump hands but want a high-end smartphone. AFAIK Sony is the only manufacturer to put flagship level guts in a daintier body.
I've also had really good customer service and very few connectivity issues.
I'm always a bit surprised by all of the negative stories on El Reg about Plusnet. That said, none of the ISPs get an easy ride...
So now I can play Pokemon Go on my laptop?
Sign me up
Sad news. Best wishes to the team at El Reg and Lester's family. He'll be much missed.
Surprised by the responses from the Italians. Makes me wonder if there are areas of the population that aren't well represented in the survey.
I have a lasting memory of an Italian TV ad I saw on holiday as a child. It was for children's sun tan lotion so obviously showed a beautifully bronzed, topless woman frolicking on the beach.
As an 8 year old it blew my mind.
Looks to me like the offspring of a Mini Marcos and a Mk 1 Honda Insight.
Certainly 'interesting' looking
Aren't AMD cards used almost exclusively for mining?
The concept of this appeals to me, price permitting. I see it as a way to emulate the Wii U's screen independence, but with Steam's game library.
For context, I have an HTPC hooked up to my TV, that I also use as a Steam-based 'console'. A device like this would allow me to play the games I have in the comfort of the living room while the missus watches 'OMG THEY LET THE STUPID MAN PLAN THE WEDDING' and 'CHILD HAS A HORRIBLE DISFIGUREMENT BUT GETS TREATMENT TO LOOK LESS UGLY SO IT'S OK TO WATCH THIS'
The device specific games are of less interest, but I'd expect more indie games to come to android now the platform is expanding.
You may have a point but the Oxford English Dictionary records usage rather than prescribing it. A word can be included just because that's the way people spell, as opposed to being the way it is supposed to be spellled. Hence the, sometimes extensive, lists of alternative spellings as sources throughout the ages spell things whichever way they damn well like. As a result, it's possible to find a whole host of 'incorrect' spellings in the OED. The wikipedia article has a fair bit about this.
On this (rather dull) note, I can't help but wonder if this is how one of my most hated words - resorb - came about. Perhaps as the result of some lazy boffin bastard not being arsed to include all the letters required to spell reabsorb, which seems to have exactly the same meaning.
Mine's the one with the new leather patches on the elbows
