I've seen them advertised for about Â£215,.
The official price for the 16 GB iPad2 WiFi only is Â£399,
You assume incorrectly, then.
I have read the Android Market terms of service and there is nothing that prohibits installing it on any device.
While it doesn't come with Android Market, there is an app in AppsLib (ArcTools) that lets you install it.
Archos have a honeycomb tablet due out in June (according to Google).
It's already available.
The Archos 101 16GB costs Â£250, has a 10 inch screen, wifi, bluetooth, USB host and slave, HDMI and a micro SD slot. It only weighs 480 grams and has a built in stand. The battery is good for 10 hours web surfing.
Like I've explained in a previous post in much greater detail, the GPS of a Nokia phone (even with its free off-line Ovi vector maps) is almost completely useless without a data connection.
Then you have been misleading people.
I use my Nokia N85 when I go walking and it works very well. It doesn't even need a SIM card to be useful, let alone a data connection.
However, no phone is as robust or waterproof as a purpose built device. Battery capacity is also a concern, though this can be alleviated by carrying chargers such as the Nexus Poerboost which can be recharged via USB or use standard AA batteries.
It should also be remembered that a GPS is a navigation aid, and does not negate the need for a map and compass, and the ability to use them.
We have a Deckel-Maho 5 axis machine at work and it uses Heidenhain control software, whch we also have on our Bridgeport 3 axis millers and Bridgeport 5 axis grinders.
Just in case your interested.
The reason for not including these features from the start is simple - It gets people to buy the latest model.
They could easily have had all this functionality from the start, there's nothing innovative or revolutionary added, it's all basic stuff that other phones have had for years.
Google is leading the charge to put free GPS units in everyone's cars...
I believe it is Nokia who is leading in free GPS. No data connection required, maps are stored on the phone.
From a quick look at a beer list, 35-40 beers of the UK
Well, that is a rather limited selection as there are over 7000 beers brewed in the UK.
Unfortunately I wont live long enough to try them all.
Bodington's is my favorite from the UK
Seriously, if Bodingtons is your favourite beer from the UK your taste in beer sucks. Or you haven't tasted any others.
And while I'm here, we have Bison in the UK too.
Also, your just plain wrong, of course, bacon is better in the UK, bread is better in the UK, pizza - well I don't care about pizza so you can have that if you like, but the rest is better in the UK.
But what happens if you call scp from a number of scripts in parallel? You will get banned?
The problem is that you want to act only on the failed login attempts.
That's a side effect of web programming. I worked for about five years on a pure java application. The only other language I used in all that time was a little bit of xml to set up the ant build. The end users loved it and it was easy to maintain.
My current project is a web application, and I have to know three or four different languages to get anything to work (depending on what you consider a language). There's no hope for any kind of end-to-end debugging or performance analysis. There are a lot more places for things to go wrong than the pure java environment and the final product isn't as smooth.
It all seems like a big step backward to me. But what the hell. They pay me by the hour.
But in evolution, there is no way for any individual to know when a semi-random collection of DNA is going to be important. The entire validity of the engineering method rests on *ALL* random possibilities being tried.
