Go fly a kite, will ya?
Yeah, i like the Hub. Not as integrated as on the BB10 (i sure miss the various little things BB10 did for me - like proivde one-click-connecting to phone meetings, how integrated everything was for traveling, stuff like that.
Worried about the patch support for the -03 Keyone model (the Verizon one) - but nothing i can do about that.
What are the "other disadvantages of Blackberry." ? It's an android.
My guess, this is a phone for corporate bulk buyers. With enough scale that price will go down anyways. Solid, secure Blackberry, not rootable, etc. - they could be on to something.
A couple of weeks ago I watched an ancestry-type show. Documents written in England in the 1600s apparently used the mm/dd/yyyy format back then. But now almost all European countries are using dd/mm/yyyy in their day to day communications. So I guess that's where the US format came from... And got stuck, after "the rest of the world' adopted dd/mm/yyyy as the regular date format
(sure, pedants will find exceptions, already highlighted in previous posts. But in general, i'm saying).
Interesting. Probably off topic. Still interesting.
>If only it wasn't so incredibly expensive
Look into getting a KeyOne - it's still a good phone even though a newer one came out.
It's been working fine for me, having moved from a Passport, and wife from a Classic (or Q10, now i can't remember...)
Main reason for me dropping the Passport was that apps would no longer run in the older-Android-VM that the Passport was using. Not because it was a crap phone :-(
I would love to have one, but i just got one year into my KeyOne.
Is it me or are these product iterations getting shorter and shorter? Built-in obsolescence becoming an issue?
Looks nice and shiny, though. And while the BB apps on Android are still not what BB10 used to be (how integrated everything was in BB10!), it has improved a bunch over the last year.
You know, i kinda disagree. I live by this rule: The Best Camera is NOT the One You Have With You.
When i walk around, on hikes, through town, other places, i'm certainly not always carrying my DSLR with me. But i see stuff where i would say 'damn, that's the money shot',. And try to get as best a shot with the camera i have on me - mostly my phone. But that makes that whole experience even better: you see something worthy of capturing, you have less than optimal gear with you, so then if the result is better than you expected, even better!
I live nearby a municipal airport where sometimes military planes do flybys. I use my 500mm zoomlens and not my phone for that. Phone would be useless; but then when going for static shots of those planes on the ground - that zoom lens is completely useless. I'm happy I have my phone with me, and that my phone takes pretty good quality photos (or is it the guy behind the camera...)
So to focus (geddit?) on picture quality in a smartphone review - totally warranted.
Perhaps one of those mushroom brushes, to brush off the dirt?
Oh, must be the Royal Society of Putting Things on top of Other Things working overtime. In this case, stacking all the cash...

Both probably made him cry.

>They just keep it hidden. Like good morons.
I like it. I had to read it twice to make sure i did not read what i wanted it to be. Can't imagine what the bad kind will do...
At the least the State of Illinois begs to differ. .177 pellet gun is allowed without any permit, but for a .22 pellet gun you definitely need to have a permit.
Nicknamed "Scrabble" ?
Actually: Marc Rzepczynski's (MLB Pitcher) nickname...
I see intermittent glitches on anything atlassian - JIRA, Confluence mainly; US East Coast, Central Time zone as well. It all seems stable, but even the main atlassian site itself was still down, a minute ago.
Guess i'm too late to preempt the commentards saying 'but it doesn't have an engine, so how could it damage the glider?' It would just 'slide off' or 'bump it out of the way'.
Put blinkenlights on them, dayglo orange mandatory colors. And. Don't. Fly. Near. An. Airport.
Follow. The. Frikkin. Rules.
I was recently 'membered about Louis de Funès. Man, that was a trip down memory lane.

As with anything in space, even rebooting an arm just goes slower, right?
The one with the environmental controls on it, please.
Ah, Bucks Fizz... When we were young.
But what about the Women Tai?
Mine's the one with Mai Tais in all pockets.
Apparently it was a person already member of the team for 10 years, and has been reassigned other duties, but has not been fired.
i hated the fact it was constantly phoning home, and using a lot of bandwidth. Not sure if it's still the case, but it was downloading the background images it's showing while it's not casting. that could only be changed using the Android app, and not by the integrated webpages, when accessing the Chromecast by webpage.
So then i blocked the outgoing traffic of the chromecast - and then it 'glitched' or 'hiccuped' every 20 seconds. Now i know why.
People's Front of Judea and Judean People's Front are watching this with interest.
> it's carrying the [teaspoon|bucket] up seven or eight decks from the bilge to dump overboard that takes the bulk of the time!
Just drill a hole in the hull nearby and use a hose to pump the water out? Shouldn't be that difficult.
Or use a commercial cargo ship.
Uhm, the Android VM on the passport for instance is only 4.3, or perhaps 4.4 - a number of apps are refusing to start or even install because of this older version. so while the phone itself may still be working, i was being painted in a corner on what i could easily use.
I switched with heavy heart to the KeyOne / Android. At least i still have a keyboard :-(
But i will miss BB10/BBOS.
So, as long as the drones are coming in at the windshield of a plane, we're all good; i guess it's just a matter of pilot skills to weave towards the drone, making sure it hits the windshield, and not the engine.
Got it. (my coat, that is.)
>2620:fe::fe (the PCH public resolver)
CovFE FE ?
No, even easier. Do not allow anything that can act as a computer on board anymore. And the US is moving towards that model, right? Because the batteries can explode. Or something.
Switched to a KeyOne from a Passport last week. While i like the feel of the phone, Android still is just so not ready for business. Almost everything that was integrated in BB10 now needs an app. Resize photos before sending? need an app for that. Bedside Mode? need multiple settings plus an app for that. Stuff like that. Trying to make edits in a text or message? Need to enable some sort of weird virtual joypad that allows you to move the cursor through the text. Just use that scroll-paddy keyboard already!
But, at least i still have my physical keyboard.
I know i won't switch over to a Motion. I need those keys.
So, yay - another Blackberry released. Here's to hoping more of the BB10 functionality gets built into the Blackberry apps.
I'll be switching over from a Passport to a KeyOne shortly; having just switched over another family member's Q10 to KeyOne.
All that went well - easy, no hiccups.
However, then getting the KeyOne to behave as much as possible to be a BB10 machine. Impossible. All these Android idiosyncrasies preventing a proper BB experience. Nothing is as integrated as using BB10 to communicate.
I do like that keyboard though. And the battery life.
I would have liked sticking with my Passport, but that only supports sideloading of apps that should still work on Android 4.3 - anything above that wont even work. So slowly but surely, the Passport is pushed into obsolescence.
I, for one, will be welcoming my Super-Platinum DocWagon HTR team, to bail me out of yet another compromised run... Gotta find that mole, and quickly!
That's some Stilton language used in this article.
I say we take off and nuke the entire browser from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
>A terrorists wet-dream, this.

Don't give Fox News in the UK the pleasure to rant about things, in order to generate some last gasps of faux outrage, please.
Don't think it's any different on an HP x360 Spectre. Same issues. Keyboard needs getting used to, difficult to pry open the closed laptop, the powerbutton in such a place where you press it while moving the laptop on a desk, and some delay on when pressing the button.
Weird. Badge Engineering happening on laptops?
Kalok, right? Both the name of the brand, and the sound they would make when it broke...
"Low Boom Flight Demonstration"
As Tim Nice-but-dim would say - 'seemed more like a thud to me. Or a bang.'
And here I came to see if Zipcar would finally have an NSX to drive, as a service. Left disappointed, with my coat :-(
We use google docs for collaboration / ideation; then as soon as a document reaches a certain state, we take it up into an Office tool - Word, Excel, etc.
So many issues still with cross-platform calendars - invites initiated in Google Calendar being stripped from data - no integration of plugins to allow easy invite generation from meeting software, stuff like that.
Sure, enterprise-ready for perhaps the IT depts at large companies, but for the regular users that need stuff 'to simply work' - nightmare. I was glad after having used google stuff for 2 years to going back to O365
They discontinued that when the Space Shuttle was retired.
>Why filed under "bootnotes"?
You know another shitty part? If he's a Permanent Resident, this kinda crap even can get him expelled due to the rules on Permanent Residency in the US of A. So don't count out Malice at this point either.
I will be getting one on AT&T, and my wife on Verizon. No doubt about it. Physical Keyboard for the Win. Yeah, it'll be difficult, switching from BB10 to Android; but that keyboard. To me (personally, so don't flame because you think otherwise!) that is the saving grace.
Business phone, not an iPhone or a Samsung phone. Had a Note 2 - didnt like it, couldnt work with the keyboard. Now running on a Passport, and a BB10 Classic...
So yeah, bring it on.
Crunchy, with a slightly 'stingy' aftertaste left on the palate.

Damnit, those bears keep running away...
