iOnRoad Augmented Driving

Peter 66

because you have the option to upload your data to the website to compare with other journeys, some bean counters like to have excel spreadsheets with this type of stuff. It mentions this fact in the article (the journey logging online, not the bean counter stuff)

This may be a good app for those of us learning family members to drive - my other half follows the car in front far to close, perhaps this might be the gentle reminder she needs rather then me trying to push an imaginery brake peddle and telling her to back off.

I like the register, its a utopia of the best drivers, programmers, policitians, judges etc etc

Download Limits

Watching iPlayer, 4oD, iTV etc to 'catch up' on things i've missed is great..........although the download limits that comes with broadband these days makes it not something that you can do on a regular basis.

Is BT vision excluded from your download allowance?

Just like the Trojan's then, they were so stupid they fell for the old Greek force hidden inside a wooden horse.

Still no damage done.................

AMD helping Android fans port to x86

Maybe some people who have android phones would like to run android on their netbooks that currently run Win7. Not everyone love Linux the same as not everyone loves Windows or OS-X. Some people just use one that they are used to or one thats best for a certain purpose.

I can see Android working on a netbook being fantastic, proper keyboard and with an SSD fast bootup times + battery life.


User of Android, iOS, Windows, OS-X - no linux though

As iPhone 4S battery suckage spreads, fixes appear

Me to

My 3GS has been fantastic ever since I got it - about 2 years ago, runs iOS 5 nicely so why upgrade? Her indoors HTC Desire, despite being half the age doesn't have any 'official' updates, sure there are people porting later versions of Android over but an non techy person is not going to know about this or indeed do it.

Can we admit that Apple have supported their products longer then any other manufacturer have supported an Android phone?

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Prob a better analogy would be a Ferrari with a Toyota Aygo engine in.

I've got 1 month left until I'm free of O2 with their 'unlimited' data cap, already getting texts and withheld numbers calling to say that they believe i've been paying too much for my mobile and to phone now to renew and save money!

Yeah right

Ahh yes, the water did taste a bit peculiar yesterday. I for one welcome our flying penis protectors from across the pond.

Peter 66

Damn Title

Why don't they just use that virtual world................can't remember what its called but had flying penis' and used Lindon dollars.

Fail because I can't be bothered googling what it was called but it did make my day reading about how people were attack by flying a penis...........much like the chap that was reported yesteday but only it wasn't virtual.

End of the line for ID cards

Peter 66

Forward to the Past

Might as well keep the equipment as when Labour get back in, chances are they will bring back ID cards but it will cost more then £330 million and then Ryanair will charge you an extra tenner for using an ID card rather then passport.........then charge a tenner for using a passport.

An iPad for under 200 quid*

Peter 66

State the obvious

Read the article, it states that if you can't afford to pay £529 for the thing from Apple then many people (who are not as wise as el reg readers) will see the £200 price tag and get one. They won't even think about the TCO of the thing with the contract, all they will see is the saving of £329 when in reality its costing them £848.

Its exactly like Brightstore, watch people get a no name brand tv for £3.50 a week for 8 years. There should be better regulation about such practices.

PS3 sales up, says Sony
