Why Teflon Ballmer had to go: He couldn't shift crud from Windows 8, Surface

I always feel so lonely when I realise I might be the only person who actually likes windows 8.

Review: Google Nexus 4


Battery life and heat on mine was massively improved by installing a custom kernel and undervolting. It seems a number of people found there is a massive margin for reducing cpu voltage. Hopefully Google tweak things a bit in a future update for those not happy with flashing kernels/roms.

Google Nexus 7 shipping cock-up enrages fandroids


Re: bit worried...

This for me is one of the biggest complaints I have. there are people who ordered 28th+ who haven't had any confirmations but people who ordered like you at a later date got them within a few days.

Delays due to lack of stock, high demand I understand but for newwer orders to be processed before existing preorders if shamefully incompetent.

Glad for you that you benefitted from googles incompetence though.

Asus Eee Pad tablet-cum-netbook ship date slips


Can buy it just not from amazon

As far as I know Comet are still selling them. I think its just amazons availability that has been delayed.

Shipping from comet when I ordered it yesterday was at 7 days though where before it had next day delivery available. I think Asus may just have prioritized stock for companies that currently sell it.
