Ummm, just because you are used to do stuff in a certain way dont mean that it is the only way to do it. While a onscreen keyboard isnøt as good as a real kb it is perfectly fine for annotation. I annotate a lot of documents on my ipad without problems.
Ahh, apple got way more than 10% of the smartphone market, and way way way more of the tablet market.
Umm, they are fine for annotating papers/books. They got a virtual keyboard for text input (hold a place in the paper/book a note pops up and you can input text). Other usecases: Websurfing (I prefer to browse on my tablet, computer to a laptop). Wathing videos Games (and ssh works fine too)
Yes it is, they choose a license that allows the manufactures to lockdown the handsets.
No incorrect, the only thing that rivals the cpu for poweruse in amodern smartphone/tablet is the screen.
They write nothing about power consumption... I am disappointed. The most important benchmark of a mobile CPU is power consumption, I can stick a atom in a cellphone to get a lot of cpu power, but the batteries will be toast in no time.
Bethesda took advantage of the Video Game Awards this weekend to announce the fifth installment of the Elder Scrolls series, titled Skyrim. The game is planned for November 2011, and a teaser trailer has been posted on the Elder Scrolls website. Details are sparse, though the game will apparently run on an "all-new" engine.
Only if its not a switched network. WPA2 will work against this as the users can't see each others traffic.
Or prehaps they will be outmanouvered by iphones, WP7 and android gaming phones..
Have you tried the touch editions of symbian? They make even windows mobile look good... (I know the N8 use a new symbian, but thats barely on the market).
I use mine to watch video and surf on the train when commuting. Better at this than a netbook. Its instant on, good battery and easy to use when not have much space and a bumpy ride.
either encrypting userdata, or atleast limiting access or not giving access to multiple services. If he only had access to one of the services damages would be less, but he had access to both voice, email and google talk.
mayor company that keeps houge amounts of personal data dont protect user data from employees, I think thats the story.
Ummm, this is slashdot. We find this kind of thing a interesting project and if its cheaper than normal, super.
