Nonsense. They're hardly going to build a manufacturing plant. They could (like Apple do) sub-contract to another manufacturer. But, in essence they've already done this with HTC making the bulk of Windows Mobile devices. I guess they could (like Google did) get HTC to build a Microsoft branded phone, but it wouldn't make a whole lot of difference as to what they have today.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
As others have noted here in the past, the number of processing cores do not a powerful computer make.
For sure; but this is aimed at people who are would be rendering video on their desktop or other CPU heavy creative tasks (e.g. Photoshop on massively high resolution images).
This isn't aimed at your average Mac user, or even your 'power-user' - it's aimed at people who need huge amounts of CPU every now and then.
There is nothing in UK law that forces any of this (apart from paying taxes) on you. It may provide you with limited liability or tax advantages, but its still your decision.
It's been a year since I last flew out of there so I dunno if the thermite-panted idiot has changed things much there, but City has always been a cut above hellpits like Heathrow.
No, it has gotten even better - not just comparatively. In the last year, they've upgraded and extended the departure lounge - it's more comfortable now and not at all squashed; capacity has increased at the scanner area too, so there's still never any queues. And there's also a nice new bar - so if you are early for your flight (I usually turn up 20 minutes before departure, so I don't frequent the bar) you can get a pint. They're a tad over a fiver for a pint, but hey - you're flying from LCY, you can afford it.
Less accidents, despite the increase in electronic devices...
Erm, 'fewer accidents'.
I have yet to see a Firewire device and only have seen a few PCs with Firewire ports.
You've never seen a MiniDV camera, then?
...and a battery life of about an hour.
About the same as an iPhone, then?
Harvey also has the shoutiest ads in Ireland
Have a listed to this - you'll get a giggle.

"In his first in-depth comments since taking the job in April, John Riccitiello says he worries that the Redwood City, Calif., company and others in the industry make too many games that lack innovation. He says EA and others need both to push more aggressively beyond traditional audiences to court "casual" consumers and to experiment more with new sales approaches — outside the norm of selling $50 to $60 discs with 40-hour games that he says few players ever finish.
"We're boring people to death and making games that are harder and harder to play," Mr. Riccitiello said in an interview.
