Use of 2FA on the rise might account for some of the increase I would have thought?

I'm referring to the first sentence:

I can't argue with your comments on high uptake - but I'm also suggesting teh strong possibility that those users who update early are likely to use the internet on their phones more than the average.

I saw no reason for one of these initially - but actually I would if it had a good Heart Rate Monitor app. You can get a bluetooth 4 heart rate sensor from Polar, for instance, for a reasonable sum - but their watches tend to be expensive for what they are. A smart watch would replace this - but do much more besides.

Samsung vs Apple: which smartphone do Reg readers prefer?
No Apple for me, but ...
I can understand people who don't want the hassle of changing eco-systems - sure, you can buy apps again quite cheaply, but you've got calendar, iTunes in your cloud and the rest, so if you are offered another Apple then why not? Still, unless your contract's up and your next iPhone is free or at least cheap, then why bother at all for the small improvement?
I like Samsung for all the usual reasons mentioned (and I'm also a stickler for the inclusion of a good old-fashioned FM radio as well), and a jump from Galaxy to Galaxy S3 was well worth it, but maybe not next time - how much better is the S4 seriously? I had an issue with my original galaxy - drove to a service centre and it was fixed while I waited (it was a software hang rather than hardware to be fair).

Review: Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet and dock
RT or Not RT
There's no doubt that I'd prefer the full Windows 8 on a tablet - cum laptop combo rather than RT. But the battery life just isn't good enough for me. Sure, a normal ultrabook (windows or Mac) has less life than a tablet / i-thing, so a full windows tablet is no worse than these.
But still, I want tablet battery life with laptop capability. Too much to ask at present I guess
