Re: With the Lenovo Explorer now down to $132 (from an original $349) ...
I'd also like to know where they can be had for $132
Seems to be still pricey in the states as well. Maybe a typo on the price?

That screengrab is a perfect example of why I don't like 3D in it's current form, and no wonder it gives people headaches.
TV/Film directors have been so used to forcing people to focus on what they want you to look at by using depth of field, making the stuff they want you to see pin-sharp, and everything else out of focus. This is all well and good in 2D, but they use the same techniques on 3D.
The idea of 3D is it lets your own eyes do the focusing, so you can instinctively appreciate that not everything is the same distance away.
So if I wanted to look at that woman in the background I should be able to do so. But no matter how much I tried straining my eyes, she would never come into focus!
No wonder it puts people off when part of the picture seems to be 3d (the bit they want you to look at) and the rest of it is not - it definitely messes it up for me. The technology, (having to wear glasses) and the filming techniques (as above) are still not there yet.
Looking good, hats off to Dave!

...ok better get back to work now
I dunno, I quite like the lastpass security model. Your passwords only go "on the internet" in a peer-reviewed encrypted form. Thus any weak points should be limited to either machines you use, or your master password. (You did use a secure one, right?)
But the main advantage for me - it makes it practical to use and manage thousands of completely random long passwords, a unique one for everything you use.
The fact that its used by so many people and the security blips have been few and far between, and rather limited in practical risk anyway makes me relatively confident.
What exactly was the point of this survey?
A YouGov/dailymail poll does not make for good practical law. How would this ever be possible?
Firstly you'd have to legally define exactly what a social network is, which is not simple.
Then somehow force these sites (who are often based abroad) to ask for addresses.
Then after all that, prevent users from putting in whatever details they like.
I know, lets ISP Block any websites like this INSTANT TROLL FAKE ID generator: http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/gen-random-en-uk.php
What a complete waste of time.
Agreed, its well past due that the entertainment industry allows fast and easy content delivery for a sane price. In fact, this might have got me to sign up to netflix ( ...if I didn't already have newsgroups subscription, which has been merrily grabbing all my favourite shows automatically for me for quite some time.)
Herin lies the problem. Pirating has become so commonplace in the past few years while the industry sat on its arse. They industry is going to have to pull something very special out of the bag to tempt people back from the dark side.
This, whist a nice gesture, probably won't do it. Its just 9 episodes of one show (albeit a good one).
Until something is universally decent, and gets ALL of the episodes of ALL of the shows you want to watch, its not going to be able to compete with pirating.
I did wonder about that. It might be the case, but its not designed to cause too much blast. We're after a slow hot burn rather than a big bang, so there isn't actually very much blackmatch in there. Also there is some wadding separating it from the PIC.
I think the next thing to do is a bit more testing. We need to get some PIC down to the frosty -60°C found up at that height. I think we'll get a mini rig set up in a dry ice bath and see if we can dig into the root cause of its refusal to burn.
