Why aren't crims robbing androids?
No resale value? Nobody wants to buy them?

I don't understand this, Apple already do a TV product don't they? If they had all this extra wizardry available to them, why not throw it into the already established set top box and be done with it?
Apple don't even produce their own screens do they? I though they bought it from the likes of Samsung?
I like the new fondleslab, screen is improved, and viewing very small text is definitely improved........ But that's where the problem is, I don't want to read small text.
In every situation that I could see I would zoom rather than make use of the extra pixels.
As such I will be keeping my lighter, cheaper, better battery, jailbroken iPad 2
I love how these statistics are always wrong when they side with apple.
Whether it's highly technical users or complete idiots the fact of the matter is that the stats show iphone users AS A WHOLE are more satisfied, surely that means other companies need to create more user satisfying experiences.
I am not saying android should lose it's openness or customisations, but as a standard product it needs to be easier to use.
I used android for 3 years, had several custom mods etc. and have recently moved to a 4s. I am now more satisfied (although it helps that the hardware of the 4s is well beyond the spec of my previous android device).
One of the major problems I see with this ruling is that previous breaking cleanfeed was illegal, not because of the technicalities in doing so but because if you did you were essentially downloading CP.
Now you break cleanfeed and simply be accessing an index file (that there is nothing illegal about). Yes it can be used for illegal purposes but on it's own there isn't anything illegal.
"It knows that the users of Newzbin2 include BT subscribers; and it knows those users use its service to receive infringing copies of copyright works made available to them by Newzbin2"
Newzbin2 make no copyright works available, if all the content was removed from newsgroup providers (such as giganews), then what Newzbin2 do wouldn't help with providing content at all.
Will be interesting how they propose to do the block, like greem says this is probably the birth of newzbin3.
Not really a surprise.
Given that most contracts are 12 or 24 month contracts these days how would it make business sense to do anything else?
All the people who purchased a 3GS at release on 24 month contracts are all coming up to the end of those contracts.
I read elsewhere that it's actually a sort of wireless mouse that senses position on the screen rather than actually using the capacitive screen.
Sounds cool actually,
"What’s different is the active stylus HTC has also included. It’s no plastic toothpick, as we’ve grown to hate from resistive touchscreens, and nor is it a so-called capacitive pen which mimics a fingertip for some semblance of increased accuracy on slates like the iPad. Instead it’s a truly different way of interacting with the Flyer by touch: the pressure-sensitive nib communicates its position wirelessly with the digitiser, while two barrel buttons default to erase and text-selection. To HTC’s specially-coded apps, which at launch will be the only software that supports the stylus, the nib presents as a new type of touch event, distinct from a finger."
Firstly it was leakier than a porcupines water balloon.
Then when it was released, they managed to prevent it doing the one thing you would expect from a phone and that's to actually make calls!!!
THEN to top it off, their solution wasn't to recall the product, ohh no, after discovering such a major issue with their all glass/aluminium sleakly designed phone, they decided to let you have a FREE shitty bit of plastic to put round it. "Yeah thanks for that crapple".
Treat myself to one, put my orange contract SIM in, 500MB of data.
MCR rom coming soon, if not already released, to strip all the orange rubbish off.
Screen is amazing, had it next to an Iphone 4 earlier and I couldn't decide which I prefered, colours were better (IMO) than the iphone, with a slightly worse res.
All in all for £80 (nhs discount), unbelievably good phone.
I don't get this; Microsoft, in europe at least, got a ticking off from the courts, because it bundled IE with windows, giving it an unfair advantage against the other available browsers.
Not only do apple bundle their own browser with the Jesus phone, but the specifically ban any other browser?
How is that not getting stomped on?
This has change from the 95% when I last posted.
"Indeed, it's even possible to find fault with Reach itself. The graphics, although an improvement over Halo 3, remain some way short of the best 360 titles. Dynamic check-pointing still occasionally leads to frustrating pinch points, and very occasionally to game breaking zugzwangs. And the narrative continues to mumble along like a Special Brew-drinking-tramp raving about something, something alien race, something humanity, something intergalactic war."
If it's possible to find fault then how is the game 100%? 99%? 98? Or does el reg only go up/down in 5% chunks and if so then why not simply give a score out of 20?
Beer because it's friday!!!
See I am a big halo fan, family life means I don't really get to play like I used to, but still a big fan.
Wasn't impressed with ODST, the lack of anything new multiplayer wise, meant it wasn't really a halo game.
See the thing with comparing console games and pc games is that the campain is never going to be as accurate in term of a control system, and it's designed to accomodate that.
Online everyone has the same controller, so alls fair, you don't like getting shot in the back whilst trying to turn, then try facing the person that's shooting you!!!
That said COD multiplayer has taken over as my fav fps, and I am not sure I can go back.
In IE8 you could show the menus if you chose, but in IE9, they have to be summoned by pressing Alt. The important function "Find on this page" was part of the search box in IE8, but in IE9, it has moved to the File menu under the gear wheel icon, or the Edit menu if you press Alt, or Ctrl-F if you know the shortcut. It is a minor detail, but this inconsistency illustrates the downside of hiding traditional menus.
All that just to say you can still use ctrl+f, who uses the menu to get to find these days?
The problem with this (and with the Wii), is whilst it's a great social game, when it comes to getting serious it's not the type of game you will play for hours on your own (or online).
I our household, if we have friends over and want to put a console on then 99% of the time it's the wii. If I want play a game then it's generally the 360.
As your review is focused mainly around the party games, then it's hard to know if this will break that barrier.
Paris, because she likes to party with alien sex toys
Google would be selling it to anyone who would have it, if it was not for the fact that the nexus is having it's ass hand to it by the HTC Desire!
Kinda what the Nexus did to the Droid, so what goes around comes around really.
Can't really see the Nexus doing too well on Vodafone because of the Desire, that's probably going to be cheaper.
I thought maybe google nav (non beta), but as it's a global release and it's only the UK that just received google nav, then doubt it's that.
Currently using villain rom that's based on the HTC sprint port, and it's very quick and easily the best rom I have used so far, I bet most people would be happy if they released this!
Really, they saw that and thought lets steal that one? It's hardly an expensive bike in today's world.
Maybe they saw him riding it and followed him home?
If they did use streetview, how did they know it was still there? It's not a live view, the contents of the garage could have drastically changed since the photos were took.
