OnePlus cash equals 5: Rebel flagship joins upmarket Android crew

vroomfondle

I've had mine for a couple of weeks and it's been fine (almost). For me, the camera works very well under most conditions (I haven't tried very-low-light). I'm able to connect it via USB to my laptop (admittedly, it's Linux, not Windows like yours) and transfer files. No reboots; one crash (but, well, it's Android so that's normal, albeit regrettable).

I have had trouble with the bluetooth, though. It won't link with the stereo in my car. That's the biggest annoyance.

So far, I'm fairly happy. It's no more annoying overall than the HTC I had before.

What, no...

Drilling into 3D printing: Gimmick, revolution or spooks' nightmare?

vroomfondle

Thing is, I don't use my 2D printer to print books or magazines. I use it to print documents relating to my personal or professional needs, but not things which I might otherwise pay for (I suppose the exception, for some people, would be printed photos and the occasional will). I *could* print books (thanks, Project Gutenberg), but I don't. I buy books. I don't even buy eBooks and print them myself, and even if eBooks were much cheaper, I suspect I still wouldn't. I pay for someone else to print and bind them for me. Suits me fine.

I can see a market for consumer 3D printers with regard to simple products which will require no (or little) assembly once printed, but when it comes to the more complicated products I suspect Future Me will still be more than happy to pay for someone else to do it (and, preferably, deliver it to my door).

Hyperspeed travel looks wrong: Leicester students

Re: Did someone

FTA: "The point of the journal, the university says, is to teach students how to deal with refereed journals."

Their choice of subject matter is presumably irrelevant (but, in this case, entertaining).

Re: Game?

Looks legit, actually:

Rubbish, but legit.
