...on Samsung TVs??
Surely a differentiation for Sony would have been to include it on their own TVs? Perhaps even include it for free?
That might have swayed a few undecided buyers. But now it's reversed, their rivals have it, doh!

I've got a Galaxy Note, I never use if for browsing, just too small!
My next phone will be a 5s, peak iPhone! To which I will tether my tablet/labtop.
I reckon the current phablet trend is just the late adopters copying the early adopters..., they'll soon with they hadn't, and next time round will be back at smaller sizes (or more likely folding devices).
The 2nd time today I have seen this phrase, the other was whilst reading reviews of the god awful movie Interstellar*.
What does it mean please? [the phrase, not Interstellar]
*lots of imdb reviews of Interstellar say it is "original", I reckon these people haven't seen 2001. Probably the same people who said Hunger Games was "so original", er...
For some people it's a dream, for others it's a nightmare.
What kind of nightmare is it? It's one that you see every waking second through your laser damaged eyes.
I have to wear glasses so that I don't see it.
Recovering from this (self induced) poke in the eye takes a very long time.
This was indeed part of the premise for Red Mars by KSR.
This was an excellent book with some very well thought out science, philosophy, psychology...., everything! Personally I would have liked the "reality TV" bits to have been longer (i.e., selection & the voyage to Mars). It is really interesting that in order to be selected they [the candidates] effectively all had to lie 100% of the time, the correct selection answer being "for scientific discovery and to boldly go...", whilst the real answer "to get away from everybody, etc" was a no no.
I've not read Green/Blue Mars. Can anybody here recommend them? Does the quality continue?
Can you, for example, quote a whole book?
Off topic, but somehow related. How come audiobooks are available on YouTube? Obviously for me this is a good thing (I have recently really enjoyed Red Mars and am now on Childhood's End), but why don't they get pulled by Audible, etc?
Note 1 owner here.
Nope, not tempted. As per AC's post. They left out the one feature which I do find tempting: waterproofing.
I use my phone every day on my bike (Strava), so far w/o problems, although I am surprised as my bag/coat are often drenched and the phone not far behind.....
Although I like my Note I've discovered that I don't need the big screen for anything at all, so my next phone will be considerably smaller.
I feel my gaming desire has finally burnt out. I can't even bring myself to boot up CiV.
I'm hoping OculusRift will re-ignite my gaming labido, although here I'm scared I'll put it on and then be like Dave in BTL, never take it off.
Things just haven't progressed far enough or fast enough. Each generation we are promised "photo-realism" and each time it's a lie.
Sounds good in theory, however, only now does my mid-2009 MBP work "properly" after installing more RAM. I went from 2GB (which all the previous OSs worked fine with) to 5GB...., to make Mavericks work properly.
I was getting beach balls everywhere, now much improved. So I think their new "uber memory management" is baloney!
The biggest improvement is the increase in performance when playing CiV:BNW. No re-draw issues and much more responsive..., now if only I could source some uranium to nuke Austria.....
So far I've used Leopard, SL, Lion, ML and now Mavericks. For all bar Mavericks I felt the OS evolved and improved as updates were released. But for Mavericks it feels like Apple have already moved on, it feels like an un-loved place-holder. There's nothing wrong with it, in-fact it's pretty good (I've even stopped missing SL)...., it just feels so un-loved!
I think a targeted drone strike would do the job.
El Reg might want to retreat to the bunker as well given their recent disclosures.
Going on similar "Snowden" stories the comments here will be ~8:1 in favour of releasing the info (& against a targeted El Reg/Cryptome strike); my question is, why do you all think that releasing classified info is in your interest or the countries? I for one think that the people releasing the info should be put in jail for a long time.
Sounds most plausible, and I also heard that the new theory was that some Li ion batteries it was transporting caught fire - apparently the fumes alone are super toxic.
PS: I also know a Chinese lady who was in China at the time of the incident; her relative is a fighter pilot, and according to him, China shot the plane down.
Same article was on engadget yesterday, from the comments there was a link to a YouTube vid where a Japanese company had used a laser to ionise points in the air, producing blue flashes, which formed moving images in the air.... well worth finding, very impressive, and possibly as close to "Help me OB1" as we are going to get.
Sorry no link, too tired.
El Reg, you were wrong to publish this and I am one, of seemingly a minority here, that think Edward Snowden is a traitor.
For me the only justification needed for any of this is September 11, 2001. Do you remember what happened or have you forgotten already?
Things are secret for a reason. GCHQ doesn't care about your sexts or e-mails to your mistress, they are not looking for you.
But they are looking for a few people, and you have just helped them.
For me the answer is very simple. Yes, obviously the iPhone, but specifically how long they took to bring out a worthwhile competitor handset, must have been >3years, by then they had already lost.
This was a clear lack of vision. Even before the iPhone came out I was longing for a full screen phone (this design was bleeding obvious to me and to most people with half a brain), in 2004 I was seriously considering the Moto A1000 which had a full screen (tiny now!), then LG Prada in 2006, which was shortly followed by the iPhone. In the end I got an iPhone3G.
Surely, I mean SURELY when Nokia saw the Prada they should have thought, hmmm.... that looks kinda LIKE THE FRIKKIN' FUTURE!!!! NO?!
They deserved to lose.
Once you start winning then you keep on winning*
*above a certain threshold, in MONOPOLY once you own Mayfair and Park Lane then unless you are very sloppy it's hard to lose. In a nutshell, Apple could just buy ALL the opposition right now and be declared the winner.
I know you can be tried for crimes against humanity (killing lots of people, being generally horrible, etc), but what about crimes agains art? Surely George Lucas can be indited for Episodes I to III? How long did he have to come up with the script? How wrong did he get it? Why didn't anybody stop him?! Like many of us I know the script for the original movies, the only line I remember from the new ones is "I'sa Jar Jar Binks!"
No VII for me.
