Where can I download it?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I own two, one dead by lightning strike.
The other by design, iirc.
I know that at this point, "RTFA" has become a running joke
The really funny part is that he didn't even read the comment which he was replying to!
I did a quick test on my iPhone (v2.1 OS), trying to copy what they did in the ad (zoom in on image, follow link, maps set to street mode not satellite, etc) - albeit using PC Pro's method of using wifi.
Minus phone call, but using the iPhone stopwatch app to time myself, it came to 54 seconds in total. I cleared Safari's cache first to avoid getting an advantage, and sent myself an email with a PDF attachment before the test.
I can't see from the PC Pro video how big the PDF was, but it didn't look complicated, so I chose a 2-page data sheet that was about 150k.
And it took 54 seconds. But then I'm not a hamfisted fecking eejit like the person doing the PC Pro 'recreation'.
I imagine the story is different with 3G (PC Pro's wifi seems to perform worse than 3G!), but then if you're in a good reception area, 3G is pretty good. You can't really argue that the ad has to work with 1 bar of 3G signal.
I expect people would have said the same about this too.
