Never mind onedrive - the whole of Office 365 and Exchange Online this week has been a car crash. It appears MS just want the problem to go away now though, they've even broken the Heath Service inside the portal so i can't see any incidents or advisories....
Bet Google aren't having this problem....
LastPass? More like lost pass. Or where the fsck has it gone pass. Five-hour outage drives netizens bonkers
I went with the smartwatch idea. It really does the job of this miniphone while being strapped to my wrist and not ever in my road.
I have a Galaxy S9+ so i suppose im in the ridiculous phone category, but the watch takes care of checking notifications, answering or rejecting calls, navigation commands (used when walking), controlling music i listen to via my bluetooth headphones and quick replies to messages
oh, and tap to pay and workout tracking (read knows where i went for a walk).
A second phone is just daft.
The difference between wiping a car for sell on and wiping a phone is that the phone will contain your personal data that could potentially end up with someone else. The car however when sold on will give you access to someone else's data (location for instance).
If you were of a vicious mind, you'd be happy to still be connected to the car so you can f**k with the new owner and potentially rob them...
The dealer should be making sure the car is digitally clean before sell on.
Re: A grand for a phone
Except its not. Its my entire filofax, primary media consumption device, occasional document creation device, library (reading device) and go to contactless payment option with loyality cards.
It also takes all my photos (and stores them in my google account) and lets me phone people when i need to.
It also lets me communicate through instant messenger apps and is my alarm clock for trying to get out of bed in the morning.
It lets me tell the time occasionally.
Its also a great sat nav when either walking or in the car.
Which you have a good chance of losing or dropping down the toilet. <- if you are clumsy enough with it.
Re: Sadly true
This is very accurate. I went to the nearest one a couple of weeks ago and just left feeling depressed on behalf of the staff who had the look of broken people on death row. The product range had no USP and prices didn't beat anywhere. The could plausibly close 150/160 stores and double down on the hobbist market but they would need to make their prices very keen to outdo direct from china via ebay purchases.
I'd be inclined to think that if they are letting him go because he did something offensive against another person and are making that news public knowledge, then thats what happened. That sort of thing wouldn't look good in a court room if it wasnt true, regardless of how the Telecity buyout went.
Re: One winner - not really.
Ive been guilty of letting my son have you tube access but I do my best to avoid it at all costs. I prefer he watches Netfix and Amazon prime. Youtube is too much of a cesspit to allow youngsters to run riot on. Trolling videos, unboxing videos and kids being exploited by their parents by making videos of them playing with toys are some of the reasons to avoid it...
As for myself - Youtube has been a great resource.
Re: Sounds like my S8 and facial recognition
I actually moved to iris recognition and it works significantly better. The only problem I have found with it is when my glasses are filthy (which my kids ensure happens lots). But i do not need to be holding the phone in any unnatural way to make it work, it just does.
I like it. MS clearly understand that sysadmins are feeling the squeeze so they are giving non-IT management the opportunity to really F*** up their own infrastructure to the point of realizing that they desperately need IT staff to steady the ship. Good to see MS helping the small guy /jokingnotjoking
Re: Upgrade cycle
I'm in that minority. The Galaxy S6 has everything I need in a phone and combined with an unlimited data sim only contract and google drive, storage is not an issue. The battery is reasonably good, the screen is great. It has an IR blaster which I use often (and is missing from the S7) and the camera holds its own. I am clean out of compelling reasons to replace this phone with anything else on the market.
It has replaced an S4 which is still a very capable handset except it seems to have an issue with its sim card slot. But, thats no problem. It has instead become a very capable media remote for the home and lives in the lounge, replacing multiple remotes and working with chromecasts etc etc. It has its own google account which is part of my Google family set up and if i'm really really pushed to use it as a phone, Skype fills the void.
Basically I have stopped looking at the phone in the way the industry wants me to and just see it as another computer like my laptop or PC.
Re: People have been saying this would happen for years
Tizen 3.0 is aimed at other devices like wearables and TVs and IoT things because it didn't compete against IOS/Android.
I think if Samsung make a success of the platform in these areas, they will revisit the mobile phone market and have a stronger position from which to compete.
Re: Yet another landfill flagship
I don't know a single power user who doesn't have access to an entire other device or can't walk into a shop and buy one if their main device fails (by which i mean gets chucked at the wall when a deal goes south or an employee screws up).
Most of those guys use IPhones...
Samsung S6 FTW
Still using my S4 and have yet to find a compelling handset to replace it with. Battery is crap, but i've learnt to adjust and its made of plastic, but then so is the Speck case on it that hides the entire device bar the screen. Even if i were to get a swanky metal and glass upgrade, it would be hidden by the plastic cover.
