I didn't show up on April 1. Hell, it's getting towards the end of April 2 and this shit is still going on.
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).
Yes, a lot of people like a large screen. So since they're doing two sizes, why not make one of them small, or at least medium, instead of one large and one ridiculously large?
If by 'people' you mean English speaking North Americans, then you're probably right. In (all?) other English speaking countries, Autumn is the term used, and fall is only heard on American and Canadian TV shows and films.
Congratulations. I just don't speed or run red lights. Simpler, safer, cheaper and less restrictive.
The rules of the game are clear. Malfunction voids all games. That works BOTH directions. That means neither side whens in the case of an error in the machine.
So they will be refunding money to everyone who lost money on this machine?
On the desktop, it's mostly pretty good, although tables can look a bit poor when not done well. On the mobile, I would go as far as to say it is the single best looking site I've seen.
In Victoria, you must carry your licence while driving if you are under 26 years old. If you are older, then you have 7 days to produce it. This has been the case since 2007, and I only just found out about it now.
If you read what the standard defines you'd know that its talking about data rates. It doesn't say a whit about interoperability with local networks.
If it's not interoperable with local networks what will the data rate be?
Again, this is a misinterpretation of what 4G is defined as. 4G is defined as a maximum possible data rate, given by the international standards body. It is possible for the 4G iPad to achieve these rates as that's what the hardware is capable of. Even if Australia had no cellular ability whatsoever, data, voice, 2G, 3G or any identifiable network whatsoever, this would still not change the simple fact that the hardware is capable of achieving those speeds.
Why is this so difficult to understand? Another poster used a wonderful metaphor: If in the US, I purchased an electronic drill that was only compatible with the European electrical grid, and not compatible with the electric grid in the US, no one would attempt to claim that the device, magically, was no longer and electric device. It is still an electric drill, even if it won't work in the the US. It is merely incompatible with grid. The same is true of the 4G iPad in Australia... it is still 4G, irregardless of the incompatibility with the network. Further, Apple made this clear... and then changed their advertising to make it even clearer. It's a simple thing, and simply solved: buy another brand in Australia that is compatible with the 4G networks.
And if you tried to sell an electric drill in Australia that was incompatible with our grid, you'd get shot down exactly the same as Apple is. The device is not fit for purpose. If you say a product can do something, it has to be able to do it here. Australian consumer protection laws are stricter than those in the US. Is this so difficult to understand?
Telstra has a 4G network here. But not one that is compatible with the iPad.
It's a 10mile 'radius' square. So each square is 20x20 = 400 square miles. 6 of them makes 2,400sqm. Now he said that they overlapped a bit, but then the 21MB includes other cached maps as well, not just the permanent ones, so lets call it even.
3,794,083/2,400 = 1,581, so 33GB.
Then take into account, that GP most likely saved map data in a city (higher density), which the vast majority of the USA is not, and it's likely comparable.
No, it highlights how Australians will vote for a name they know. We'd probably vote in Hitler if he stood for election, simply because that's the only name on the ballot we recognise.
Mine used to be like that.
Exactly 6 characters.
First 2 must be alpha.
Last 4 at least 2 consecutive digits.
No special characters.
Fortunately they've changed that now.
Nearly half the 15 airlines improved their on-time arrival performance in 2011
That looks suspiciously like more than half were worse.
That would be quite uncomfortable in a right-hand drive car, so instead I have a 3ish position.
Yeah I prefer 24 hour time too, but do you seriously not know how to read the time?!
