It did what I wanted and it did it well.
They said Skydrive was going to be better, but it turns out Mesh actually allowed me to be more "productive" (to use M$ jargon) on different devices easily, with less available remote storage.
This was 5 years ago, the cloud marketing gimmick was still taking off (i think!)
Scotland are in a lose lose situation: stay in the Union and continue to complain about Westminster for no reason; leave and lose all these companies, have no currency, create a doomed economy with a mass emigration problem at Gretna.
If they do pack up and leave, then good luck to them: there's not much Oil left in the North Sea; Welsh whisky ain't that bad; and no one wears tartan skirts.
I'm getting the popcorn ready, it's going to be comic either way.
also agree with the article, but don't agree that I'm currently fully happy with 3G.
Whilst H+ is fantastic and has got good coverage, the coverage on a train is just s**t which is where I personally need 3G coverage the most.
How hard is it to string a cable along the overhead wires pumping out a 3G signal across all railway networks?
I wish people would get over the fact that privacy when you're using technology doesn't really exist.
Of course, paranoid people wearing tin hats will always spend time and effort trying to keep what they think is their privacy intact. Personally, I've got better things to do with my life - governments and tech companies can judge what I do with that life as much as they want.
"Google can now resume data collection."
These comments are so narrow minded. Do you not think Nectar/Clubcard et al don't collect and analyse your habits? Why else do they give you free things for using them? How about Oyster analysing your travel patterns? Or even Amazon analysing your shopping patterns? In a more positive way, Credit Card companies monitor your spending habits to avoid fraud.
If you don't want to be monitored, get rid of all your technology, leave your bank and live in the Antarctic. Otherwise, shut up and sit down.
but people generally discover they don't really want an iPad either after the newness and marketing spiel wares off.
Personally, I think if tablets survive in the future, it will be the cheap tablets that lead the way. The keyboard and mouse works for a reason.
Don't really understand your post but it reminds me of how much of a clusterf-bomb lte is. My 3g devices work all over the world (at least to the places I've been). From what I can gather, if you want your so called 4g device (which isn't 4g, it's lte and it's late) to work all over like 3g then you'd need a device capable of so many different frequencies.
When can we expect a proper fully capable 4g service? I'm guessing 10 years. In the mean time, I'd rather have the 3g hsupa+ thingamabob which seems to be quite adequate, cheaper and more compatible.
Ah, if only the world was a sensible place...
is that you Joerg? Being an AC from now on eh?
Anyway, I've yet to see an iPad used for anything other than web browsing, facebook, and the occasional note taking. If you ask me, they take a lot of your money for a device which people don't do very much on.
People will soon realise they've been idiots buying into iFail.
