Greeks best in the world – at, er, breaking their mobile phones

Mr Wilks

I work in Greece every summer as a DJ and can say that most Greeks have a ropey looking iPhone.

I've never smashed a phone until I dropped my Galaxy S3 a few months back shattering the screen. I've dropped it a million times on the carpet at home in the UK but one explanation is that Greeks don't carpet floors like we do.

Phone + Terracotta floor tiles = Insurance claim.

Multiple user accounts coming to Android phones 'n' slabs

Has Samsung not let Google incorporate Knox into Android?

This will be just that.

Re: Motorcycle Helmets

...or it

What if Mr Sugar popped in for petrol? Would it peddle remaining stock of unsold e-mailers?

Re: Competition Lacking?

A read receipt on group messaging is not in WhatsApp so it's a welcome addition for me.

4G in the UK? Why the smart money still says 'Meh'

Mr Wilks

Re: 4G/3G

Speed test at home at 4am in the small town of Skegness.

Sky broadband: 2.8 meg.

Three mobile: 13.2 meg.

Being on the One Plan, I'm not even sure why I'm having the Sky bundle as tethering is what I do often anyway.

Time for a change, me thinks.

Re: Oh dear

I agree. The CZ must be better than the Exmor R in the Sony which is just pretty lame on my Neo as it is compressed way too much. The threads over on the Sony Mobile forums are awash with people condemming the decision to limit the file sizes. I was pretty excited about it landing, and got one as soon as the hit the UK but i was soon disappointed with the output.

I just hope the learn.

Facebook denies poaching your text messages on Android

If I look at my selection of "suggested" chat buddies in the bottom right of the facebook screen then most of them are people who have text me at some point recently. I understand if they have inboxed me on facebook, but SMS? Hmm.I was always cautious of this and raised this point with a mate who also doesn't trust it.

Oh, and I don't ever use facebook chat as i'm permanently offline.

I also hate the fact that if I leave GPS switched on but not active, logging into the app fires up my GPS for an obvious location report. I think I'll go the way of others and use the mobile site from now on.

Dixons cuts Ice Cream Sarnie ready Xoom to £225

Mr Wilks

My order confirmation also came through. It says it's being prepared for delivery.

Mr Wilks

Their PC World are rocking them at this price to reserve and collect and Carphone Warehouse are doing them too.

Dixons still do the Tax Free stores i think.

Sony and Ericsson divorce

Mr Wilks

Maybe with Google it was a reference to the Motorola purchase?

Mr Wilks

...and the "CyberShot" brand.
