Apple iOS 6 review


Re: Going back

Cheers @Wibble I had to do this when I upgraded to iOS5 as the processes bricked my phone. I really should have learnt then to jump from the Apple burning ship. :o)


Going back

Upgrade my 4 to iOS6 last night and I'll be restoring a backup as the new Maps suck! Though it won't be long before I jump ship to another phone as Apple really seem to have lost the plot. They've spent more time building a higher ring fence with the maps, and YouTube removal, without adding anything worthwhile for the users (you know Apple the people that pay your wages).

Windows 8: Microsoft's tablet-desktop still painful to swallow


Like every other Windows OS

Wait for SP1 for what should have been the initial release version.

I think we should all chip in and get her a top of the line spycam.

Naked gyrating iPad vid exposes truth behind Apple's billions

Thumb Down

I strongly doubt...

...that production line runs at that slow speed. It will have been slowed down for the video by at least a quarter.

US military pays SETI to check Kepler-22b for aliens


Lets face it

In 600 years we'll have destroyed mankind thus saving what we leave of this planet for the new arrivals.

Kepler-ings/Kepler-ians make yourself's at home. Sorry about the mess.

China gets 64 quid Android 4.0 tablet

Paris Hilton

It's got to be done...

Paris: Because she'd likes a nice 7" Aionl

2011's Best... E-book Readers

Paris Hilton

Just because...

...I have an Amazon account does not mean I want to buy all my eBooks from them. So for me the Sony wins.

Paris: because she would love to be able to read

Nokia DC-14 bike charger

Paris Hilton

Is it April already?

Seriously is this for real? I hope they have a cover for the phone or the rains will kill it before it charges. After all we do live in the land of perpetual rain.

*Paris because she does not want to become a Nokia charger.

Microsoft polishes Windows Phone 7


I think it's a good move.

I hope it goes well for Nokia and MS, after all another big player and, hopefully, good OS and hardware can only be good for driving competition and advances in the mobile arena. I for one welcome that because it'll be me that benefits in the long run.

Yuppie cellphone-style iPhone case comes to Blighty

Paris Hilton


I just don't get it. Why would anyone want to pay for something like that. It'll end up costing you more as you'd have to splash out on bigger jeans to fit it in your pocket!

Paris: Because she likes things that slid in easy.

O2 to fling out free Wi-Fi for all

Thumb Down

Looks like O2...

...will be getting this rolled out instead of upgrading their mobile network. So glad I'm in the process of leaving them. I do hope 3 lives up to the tests I was running on a PAYG sim.

This is just a chopper for....

NHS spunks £7.5k on porn room



...on computer gear or £7500 for wet wipes over a year to clean the keyboard attached to the PC with internet access.

I do see what all the fuss is about as I don't think the NHS has tossed the money down the drain.

Grenade because that's another thing that gets tossed.

Microsoft's Windows 8 goals revealed

Gates Halo

Nice to see things like.

Build deep customer relationships.

Agree on Privacy and regulatory guidelines.

At an early stage of planning. Some other companies should take note. I'm not saying MS is perfect but they does seem to be better than other big IT companies.

Bill because lets face it; rather him than Jobs.

Apple feels heat from Germany for geo-tracking i-customers

Big Brother

Hang on...

Steve, being god, knows where everyone is anyway so why does he need iPhone tracking? Does this mean he's not god? Say it aint so!

No secret to stopping XSS and SQL injection attacks


Cost cutting

You also need to look at some companies hiring policies. More and more places are hiring people on the cheap with little skill or experience and dropping them onto these roles which ultimately are coming back to bite them.

There is no replacement for skill and experience.

Dyson Air Multiplier desktop cooler


Big no!

Not paying that much for a fan that still has make in [China/Malaysia] stamped on it. I went of Dyson stuff as soon as the move overseas happend. It pimps itself as British and charges a premium price but it made overseas.

Windows 7 Backup gets users' backs up

Paris Hilton

Well what can one say apart from this is what I do

1, Take daily image of root.

2, Delete previous days image of root.

3, Take a weekly full back up of my important files.

4, Delete the previous backup.

Why do I delete the previous back up? Because I don't like relying on software to cover up for my own stupidity. If I've cocked up my files then I'll remember not to do the same thing next time.

What do I use, Acronis. Have I/would I use MS back up. Yes and yes if I was being cheap and not willing to pay for other backup software. If I had to use it because I was cheap would I strop? No because I've paid for the OS not a backup application.

Paris because it would only take a floppy to back her up.

Apple revamps Mac Mini as skinny HDMI box


Xen Server

Very interesting. I'll have to look into the details of it as I've been wanting to build a very small Xen Server for dev work for some time....

Amazon Kindle flunked by college students



Did they really need to give the students these just to find out what everyone already knows; eReaders are not for reference book reading!

I've a Sony pocket and I'd snap it in half if it was the only way I could read a reference book. Now don't get me wrong as I love it as a pleasure reading device as it allows me to carry many and being the type of person that likes to read two or three books at once it's been the best Christmas gift I've had in years. The addedc bonus is that it helps me keep the weight down when I travel.

Oz government in filter paranoia meltdown

Wobbly drive array problems? This'll stiffen your rack

Paris Hilton

Easy and cheap to fix

Just follow the washing machine design by strapping a concrete block to the rack.

{Paris because she loves a good vibration.}

US military chokes on stream from robots' fat pipes


RE: camera phone smarter than a drone

"Are you telling me that the photos and videos aren't even geotagged!? They just pile up the tapes somewhere and (if viewed later) try to figure out if the desert cliffs in the footage are in yemen or afganistan, based on which pile the tape was in?"

Why do they need to geotag. If a place on the map looks like th footage just bomb it. Better safe than sorry.

Robot cars can now do a Rockford into a parking space


Not so sure..

If you look real close you can see his hands on the steering wheel just after the car spins! I think the robots are tricking us into thinking they're still dumb when in fact they've plotting against us as I type....arrggggg a drone has just appeared outside my window with a red blinking light!
