I did my account two days ago and no problems?

you do know there is the following coming...
3 asha phones
and a 8" tablet that is basically finalised
AND whatever is underway now is the phones for next year?
So it would be fair to say there will be about 20 more devices of Nokias old D&S.
( the false assumption here is MS will change the setup)
Elop and a couple of others go to US but the design team stays where they are doing what they are doing now but with greater access to integration that will be on ALL WP* phones.
( Oh no this is bad -lol)
I could say MS devs were tied up doing the 100th rewrite
of crap to access goggles stuff and their ever moving goal posts.
Or Apples walled communist garden.
At least one of them is doing something about convergence.
I do get your frustration...
but its still better than anything you would get from apple or google if they were in that position.
You are talking about serialized product.
99% of the things we buy are not...
I wonder how many Apples(sorry for the pun) I could take out of a grocery store
with a single docket.
there is no clear direct association for docket to item.
Its like the old days of honesty boxes... farmers I knew said about 1 in 5 "purchases" were paid
in full. Although a great idea you just don't see them any more.
For more informed consumers
They understand these are synonymous for the brand
All I see is another slow trudging decline to the small end of town for Apple.
They have managed to do it with every other product they have had and I don't see
As usual Apple have no grey area in their assumed brilliance..
they wont end up splattered on a runaway
the lumia 820 will direct the to the airport correctly and not onto runaway
I doubt it is much more than they have the system already developed and
putting it on surface is a no brainer. and far easier without having to develop
for multiple platforms completely from scratch.
Have a think about businesses.
your may have multiple tablets that are used by employees
also PCs at key locations and not just you personal PC and phone.
All of these systems may need access by multiple people.
This is more enterprise thinking not toy thinking
which is personal use.
Hydro-Better yet look at its efficiencies
a lead acid battery which is not great is miles better than hydro on a ROI basis.
What about indias new LEU thorium reactors.
What about ITERs new fussion reactor
( I honestly think everyone will bicker for the next 20-30 yrs till this is done and then the greenies can be silenced)
Solar prices - well that's now because Chinas manufacturing the cells
- any greenie want to hazard a guess what the energy source is?
as 95% of the cost of them is energy in the manufacturing process?
Unfortunately we have big energy needs and its going to need a big solution
Having lived of solar exclusively ( well tried...) its a fallacy...
LPG and diesel are still the work-horses in these scenerios.
for the householder
yes you're still on the grid -its just the smoke and mirrors that greenies lie about.
If the phone was $200-300 us outright I would say OK.
it looks tacky and cheap...
if youre looking for something cheap then that is often the look of those items
- I think it will just p!ss people off when they find out the cost.
They understand premium but that has nothing to do with understanding the
global market. Its not that Apple cannot, its just they dont care... same as
so many areas of computing that they have grovelled to get access to without supporting
in anyway themselves.
I find a lot of the comments a bit @nal
Having used win7 and win8.
other than adding the start button they worked 99.9% the same
I actually found win8 as a experience more forthcoming and
the system prompts far more generic and user friendly.
there is a lot more "plain language prompts now"
on upgrading to win8 the only learning curve I had was the apps screen
and that was about 5 minutes playing around till I was comfortable with it.
I really believe to many people over think a lot of this
sometimes cheap and nasty apps that pollute the phone/tablet ecosystems
is all you may need. I like the fact that that is an option.
with GIS systems havings access to both
provides a usable creative platform and the consumable interface ie tablets/phones.
When I have work to do I use the desktop and real programs.
if I choose to take a break and just consume info from live tiles or chitchat then its a simple swipe
on my dual screen PC they both can be visible.
I think a lot of the stigma is purely in peoples heads and has little to do with reality.
Not unlike the 80ies and 90ies where 90% of people had mental blocks about PCs.
if you had given them a smartphone back then they would have complained it had no buttons
to dial with!
No he would think it was funny.. maybe with a slogan "the real deal nothing fake here!"
You know atheists may be a bit insensitive to you.
but at least they do not tell others they will burn in hell for not believing.
You see this behaviour of your like-minded fellows is the most offensive and
gives you no basis for complaint.
Yes.. mostly waffle
why is there no professionalism any more...
just self-indulgent individuals who cannot seem to provide an objective non-partisan review.
(by all means add your personal view or feelings clearly stated as such)
The register seems to attract this type of reporting...poor effort
sorry not meant to offend.
Oh by the way how did you determine meego is dead?
Hmm. not because of Nokia they don't control it.
not because of sales ... not on sale yet(phones)
not because of reviews of upcoming products ...all rave reviews
not because of manufacturer interest?
you really should do more work and less I feel stuff..again sorry but this is a very poor article
The Aussie market is a blatant rip-off ! it may not be the retailers but someone is ripping of the australian public and the only way this will be resolved is thru competition. I would have been happy to pay 50% more to an aussie store but this is rediculous. Oh its not my fault.. is the lazy cry... yes I know heard all this excuses... but now it is the retailers problem best you do something and quick. This is not a consumer issue or a taxation issue This is the free market and its about time aussie big business' learn a hard lesson.
(Note: even with a poor exchange rate these still half the price)
Here are my recent purchases
Lets see .....
Levis au $100
levis US $30
Charger AU $485
Charger US $180
T-handle AU $120
T-handle US $15
All of these are the exact same brands
Any commonly (required tech) must be sold on F/RAND terms.
This is to ensure a level playing field and competition.
Why would Apple reject this?
Apple has the worst history of IP theft but has largely got by by being a small player till
As to Apples claims against Nokia .... that would be OS Right! well- talk to Intel and MS.
Are they saying symbian is using IOS tech? LOL
Look they didnt have a leg to stand on and they new it. Nokia was nice enough to agree to
a non-disclosure so Apple could save face.
I'm sure when Droid capitulate they will take it on the JAW and not try to push it under the carpet
like the Apple believers that need to think their religion is perfect.
"Many philosophical and religious traditions teach that happiness is to be found by living in the moment, and practitioners are trained to resist mind wandering and to 'be here now,'" Killingsworth and Gilbert contend. "These traditions suggest that a wandering mind is an unhappy mind." (and a deluded life is not a real life)
what a load of cr*p.
religion is an alternate universe
Philosophers never live it.
yikes.. what impulsive hedonistic self-serving @%#$%
maybe its just the iphone, so simple its boring
In a couple of hours I had it configured just the way I like it...I am fussy!
3 screens of widgets and apps (who cares if the old menu is there?)
In reading all the above comments which I would like to thank everyone for....
If you havent used one then ask a question about you concerns not the mindless regurgitation of other individuals gripes/bias.
Hey it makes calls all the time doesnt break when you drop it. There was one reviewer who dropped it 3 metres onto concrete with barely a scratch(tiny ones) and kept going.
Its got Flash and it works great....
would you buy a computer that didnt support flash?
Anyway on the whole I am happy with the phone and would recommend it.
