Fictional character, surely.
Assuming one is referring to Edmund Blackadder when discussing the Blue stone of Galveston in comparison with the Spanish Infanta's Eyes.
I am pretty sure that wasn't a historical re-enactment.
You just can't argue with this kind of tittle-tattle (surely, 'insightful speculation' - Ed), can you? Asus is said to be preparing a handheld tablet with a 4in and/or 7in display and both mobile internet device and tablet PC functionality. It'll be dubbed the Eee Pad. So says a 'source' cited by DigiTimes - no need for a …
They have put down the Wurst butties and are poring over the history of the UK monarchy to see who exactly made the statement. Hell, it will end up on Wikipedia now you have quoted it within a factual item, thereby cementing Blackadder into our history as an actual person.
Teenagers cheating on their history essays will be easy to spot mind.
I predict worrisome times ahead. If pc companies start aping Apple products that have yet to be introduced they run the risk of maybe, one gloomy doom-filled day, producing something original.
gasp, shock, horror!
We must put a stop to this right now if we want to have any chance of stopping it at all. Apparently we may already be too late. I urge any and all Reg readers to pre-emptively boycott this imaginary product until such time when it becomes available.
I hate to burst everyone's bubble that thinks this is a new innovation, but mini touch tablets are already here.
They offer it in both a 5 and 7 inch version, fully capable of connecting to your cell providers network. Available with either Win XP or Win 7 on a SSD, the later being the more touch friendly. Unlike anything apple would ever support, this even has a built in slot for an SDHC card, also a 2 way USB connection to connect to another computer to share files and whatever else directly.
If you aren't happy with just the standard windows touch system, don't worry. Viliv has built in a fully supported touch menu themselves.
Although a small company we have 41 work stations each equipped with between three and six screens/computers per workstation and 50% are rotated for new equipment each year.
ASUS has consistently proved, to us, to be the best choice as they supply a full compliment of drivers and associated software whereas our Acer machines had only drivers for XP and Vista.
But the Acers do have one unusual feature, they are silent! Acer service still hasn't found the right driver or a driver that will work with our XP OS.
I think the secret is that Asus, in making computers for other OEM's, learns from others mistakes and avoids them.
