Really, someone needs to stop apple.
People thought microsoft were evil but apple make them look like amatuers.
Seriously, they should just be shut down.

It's not that I don't trust my neighbours.
But one of them works shifts. And has been known to take in my parcel and then never be in when I am for a whole week. The other neighbour has taken stuff in on a friday morning then gone away over the weekend.
Why can't they just come to an agreement with tesco or someone that opens 24h that you can collect the parcel from there?
Then the post office doesn't have to have multiple failed deliveries and can pass on a small part of that saving to tesco... Tesco gets people turning up at their store who will decide to do their shopping while they are there... and I can collect my stuff 24h.
Everyone is a winner!
I installed the previous version. I tried so hard to like it, but after a few weeks I just just didn't. I found it made everything harder to do and was ugly and incomprehsible.
Eventually I installed the new Mint Linux instead and it felt like such a relief to go back to a decent user interface. I still use windows 7 on my "main" pc but after using mint linux for a while now I'm increasingly findint I can just do everything in that. And yes, it was this new interface that drove me to try it. and yes I did give it a try, but frankly it's just awful.
Come on microsoft, fix it before release... The rest of the os is good, but metro makes it such a pain to work with.
Is this just on these dvd or on all imports?
I buy quite a lot of cheap electronics components from ebay from china. Usually costing just a few £. If I had to pay 20% vat on them, that's one thing... but no doubt the post office will add an £8 handling fee each time too that you can't avoid making in entirely uneconomical to buy stuff in this way.
Seems like a very good time to me to buy shares.
Not for a quick profit but to hold onto for 3-5 years.
Everything I see about amazon makes me think they actually have a strategy that's more than just "see how much money we can report for the next quarter" like so many companies.
I may well be wrong, but I intend to invest some but not all of my money in amazon as part of the "slightly risky but I have good feeling about it" part of my investments.
They are powerful enough to run compilers and development environments. (which is what I do..)
You can develop apps for them in c++.
You can work with the onscreen keyboard, but plug in a usb keyboard for when you want to do some real work.
It's not made by apple.
Probably you can do one or more of those already.
Amazing stuff. Not the article. We've come to expect this kind of stuff from apple.
But the reaction from some people.
I honestly think that if apple were to announce that they'd disabled everyones iphone and you should go buy a new one at full price immediately there would still be dozens of posters on here saying yes this is a perfectly reasonable thing to do
>> "d but if you're in a hotel that requires you to connect to the network then open your browser to authenticate then you're out of luck as the Kindle can't do that."
Yes it can! It pops up a box saying that you might need to enter a password on a web page, and automatically launches it's web browser. I was quite impressed first time it did tha
Hmm, well this doesn't sound completely bogus. But I'm very sceptical how much use it is.
First of all most digital recording I've seen has between a 10-14 bit D/A converter. I'm sceptical that with filtering any signal would be large enough to register at all or if it did it would be so quantized by the sampling into 1 or 2 bits that it would be difficult to get much useful information out of it. Secondly it's rare to see a system that doesn't compress to MP3 or similar these days. I would expect that artifacts from that process would so completely swamp the signal as to make it useless .
Finally if this came up in court my first question would be to ask how accurate the match to the recorded value was, and to ask if there were any other periods over the previous few months that were within 20% of being as good a match. I find it very hard to believe that there wouldn't be many. I imagine you could discredit any such evidence very easily
