Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Once, twice, three times - a Very Large Phone™
Re: It's inevitable...
The other difference is the stylus in the Note 3 is has some feature where you don't need to make conact with the screen for the device to know its there. When the pen is 2-3mm away from the screen the device shows a dot directly underneath the stylus on the screen. Useful for hovering functions and all sorts of other things.
Its certainly not your typical dumb stylus.
PS: I've had this device for a week now. Its great.

I actually find myself in your position. These days im doing a mixture of technologies for a small business, I have always counted myself lucky and your statement has reaffimed it.
When I started my code wasn't great but my ethic was. My techniques have improved a lot of the period of employment and crucially I have been allowed the flexibility to bring old code I have developed up to my current standard on many occasions.
I think it allows for a great improvement to personal skills and comprehension, when looking over and improving old code.

Whilst i believe bioware will do well with the franchise I also think they are shooting themselves in the feet with this move. Enthusiast sites help their advertising amongst other things and refusing them of any public support will likely mean a lot less of them will crop up.
I guess they know what their doing....

Are from people that have some irrational behaviour that dont want to see Apple do well, I on the other hand say fair play to them, even though I will never have any intention of buying their products.
I am however slightly disturbed by this, as I have grown very wary of capatilist ventures making too much money because they start to get more than a little bullish and egotistical in the market.

Microsoft says it again - no second beta for Windows 7
They seem to eager to get this one out, probably to make up for poor Vista uptake. Those of use who already have Vista should see no real reason to upgrade. Id prefer to see them take a little more time over their OS releases (5yrs) and bring whole new feature sets to the table rather than having to shell out every couple of years for some minor improvements.
