iPad Mini pics spied on Twitter

Sound Holes

Look at the speaker grill, mainly on the top picture. There is a slight reflection over it, and also compare it to that in the bigger iPad below.

It just doesn't look like actual holes to me, just an image on the case.

Anyone else see it?

Bond Blu-ray box set marks 50 years on film

Jon Pain
I guess it also doesn't include never say never again as both of these films were not "Offical" Bond films

Sony Tablet P split-screen Android fondleslab

Not there yet

Whack a screen, speaker and mic on the outside and you've got yourself a phone akin to the Nokia 9110. Now I think that would be a winner.

But in the current form?

Heathrow Express treats iPhones as tickets

iPhone Battery

I'm sorry inspector, my battery died. I do have a ticket, honest!

HTC Touch Pro 2

Jon Pain

WM 6.5!

New TouchPro 2's from Vodafone come preinstalled with WinMo 6.5, and for all others there is an update on HTC's website.

With HTC's TouchFlow, it runs perfectly well, and is more responsive and easier to use than the iPhone!

iPhone users to walk and read at same time

@Tony Hoyle

No lag at all, and no, it doesn't take pictures. The background of the app acts like the viewfinder of the camera (which is real-time).

This is rubbish

You can type the subject & body of an email, but nothing else. You then have to go into mail to find the contact, and you can't read messages on it.

Good bit of engineering, but failed by Apple's idiotic SDK.

Google's email service goes down

I've got IMAP

Nike+ iPhone app uncovered

Violent hill?

I reckon this is a fake, from what I believe the Coldplay song is named "Violet Hill", not "Violent Hill". Seems to me that Nike would have the correct title for the song, and some Frenchman has knocked this together in Photoshop, and miss-spelt the name!

Crash Landing

Someone doesn't need to die for it to be a crash. The plane is basically a Write-Off.

If someone wrecks your car, but you're both still alive, then that wasn't a crash was it.

A successful landing is one where the plane is in the same condition it was when it took off, and it landed on the runway is was intended to.

A Crash, as in this case, Is where the plane is smashed up, can't be used again, and did not land where intended.

MoD sorts out 'turkey' helicopters for Xmas

Jon Pain

Where are those helicopters?

I got a flight in a chinook a couple of months ago. I was in hampshire, with a group of scouts.

I'm not saying it was a bad experience, but why was that chopper at home, and not out with the boys (& girls) where its needed?

Facebook 'friend request' lands UK man in jail

Jon Pain

Easily Possible

Facebook has a function to scan your email address book and send invites to EVERYONE in there. If he's like me, and never cleans up this address book, then his ex-wife's email address is still going to be in there, and facebook is going to send a request.

This is an easy accident to make, and there was no reason for the sentence!

Microsoft: New Live Search 'as good as Google'

Jon Pain

Better than Google?

When will people start learning that they can't make a more popular search engine than Google, its like Sainsbury's saying "We have more products than Tescos, and more of each on the shelf at a time." People still don't like them, and are still going to use Tescos for a good long while.
