Re: What's the point...
They should have stuck to Nexus pricing and moved the brand forward with quality first, then switched to Pixel and a higher price point.

"A: Make your service accessible to as many devices as possible"
Whilst they are at it, please make it work on the devices you have already made it accessible on. I use TiVo and its a dog, programmes load but then start buffering and never catch up. I end up switchign to my wifi FireTV stick to watch iPlayer then stay there to watch whatever Amazon are throwing away for free.
Not sure as I have enabled the Smart Lock feature and can't remember how to lock my phone when at home, but can't you pin keep and therefore have it always there when phone it locked?
Going to try at my next shopping trip.
Buggy! That is an understatement.
At least I can choose when to ring on TuGo now, although VPNs still defeat it so I only see who is trying to call me, but can't talk to them, texting doesn't have this problem.
It's useful that it runs on a PC too, although a WinPho 8 and Win 8 (including RT) app would be nice.
re auto-silent-mode, timerific (I think) can set that sort of thing up; the interface is a ig to look at but the app works. Or there is Shush! Which lets you choose how long to stay silent and what volume to return to after that period, which is handy for cinema or meetings.
I have never used instagram and after reading this never will.
"I think this is an evolution of where we are with where we want links with our content to go," Systrom told the LeWeb technology conference on Wednesday
Sorry but the only reason this sort of "social" site works is because of the members content. What an arrogant idiot.
Tesco in Keynsham (Bristol) also have these cameras. A friend had a letter through the post saying she had over parked, but because she was a tesco loyalty card holder, they wont fine her this time! I wonder if the amount of moneyh you spend in TEsco sets the automatic letter posting from here s a fine to hey next time leave on time? Also how many Tesco points do you think you can collect for the fine?
As in the brick and mortar stores will close (if you listen to some comments above), but then what? What do we do with large buildings with only front and rear access, and possibly only one natural light source?
Its sad to see this happen, but supermarkets started the trend of out of town shopping, now the out of town sites are feeling the strain.
I cant remember seeing many adverts on the on-demand services from ITV, C4, C5. You sometimes get a preview of some other show, or sponsor before they play the programme, but this doesn't bother me, its like DVD adverts.
Also aren't most on-demand portals set-up with all the "Social Media" fancy bits, to point you at where to Thumb up or share you viewing habits?
The reason I like Android, and would possibly like WinPho7 is the choice of handset/tablet available to me, OK I'm locked for as long as a contract/I can afford to upgrade, but if I choose another manufacture I can still use all my apps, I left the apple stable long ago, and haven't looked back.
your asking them to all look the same, I f'ing hate the way the BBC forces Virgin to use their shit iPlayer wank, when VMs catchup tv interface is much easier. I just have to remember to never select by channel then BBC, and to search by day.
Also if you want this sort of service, would you not be better off just strapping a computer/media centre to your tv so you can use the internet versions of the catchup systems?
the problem with the beeb is all the shit they do to try to satisfy all of the audience, I like the fact I can hide shit like "entertainment" I don't go to bbc.co.uk to find out about xfactor or what shoes some dumb ass is wearing, I go there to look for tv schedules for content I watch, news updates, including sport, local news without adverts, and weather.
all the rest is crap. I don't want, someone else might but not me.
I'm sure if I had kids I would use the cbeebies bits as well.
oh and iPlayer, no thanks, I vet that from my Virgin media box, or my Sony network media player that is hooked up to my tv, when that doesn't work its redux for me.
what is the point in this “super” device anyway? It must cost them more to ship these things, rather than the good old dumb modems. Why not offer the choice, most people going for the super option probably wouldn't notice much of a difference, would they?
I just have a modem, and prefer the flexibility of using my own wireless device.
The problem I have is that I spent money getting the V+HD Box, which wont be refunded if I go for TiVO, where as someone trading in their standard V Box pays the same as me, If I got extra discount for trading in my V+HD I would deffo go for TiVO, but for now it just costs too much.
Its like the box but better, because you dont have to wait, or listen/watch other peoples choices. I often wondered why they didn't have an internet version that only worked on their network.
As Vitani put it, this is cool. Added bonus, nothing to do with apple!
