And I'm stuck with my much newer S Advance on Gingerbread 2.3.6 they never even patched the last exploit for it.

I still love the phone though don't get me wrong it's pretty capable but it's quite sickening the way Samsung ignores it just because the S3 came a few weeks later.

Comment PS Mobile (Score 1) 50

Sony will never allow this they have already announced PS Mobile which will let Indy devs write their own apps/games, plus the games on the Vita have the ability to refuse to open until you update to the latest firmware I've had this happen a few times when a new Firmwares released. So everyone will have to update to the fixed Firmware anyway or leave their bought games useless and unplayable.

Vitas a great system by the way and there are tons of games on PSN if you take into account the PSP and PS1 games it also runs, Just for the record though I have over ten Vita only titles and they are all good games.

Comment Sad day for the Vita Sony completely baffles me (Score 1) 102

Wipeout 2048 is really the best game I have for it and the DLC was excellent as well, I just don't understand Sony first Zipper make Unit 13 which is still the vitas best shooter and they get canned, then they give resistance to Nihilistic of all companys who ruin it and then as a reward they also let them work on Vita COD which I predict will be basicly the same.

Now they kill Studio Liverpool it's almost like the companys are being rewarded for bad games and punished for good ones.

Comment Google need to get gift cards worldwide (Score 0) 184

I know they just started gift cards in the USA but they really needed them everywhere else more, I think the main reason for Android piracy is it's to hard to buy things on Play I know I won't be able to purchase anything there until the gift cards get to the UK.

I know Americans are usually pretty shocked not everyone uses a credit card but I've honestly never needed or wanted one and can still buy credit for iTunes, Skype, PSN, Amazon, eBay and dozens of others with no hassle.

But on Ios your tied to only the default app my problem with it is I might want to share a file across multiple apps. IOS just doesn't let that happen you could work round it with dropbox or something maybe but then you are likely to end up with multiple copies of the original file all over the filesystem.

Basicly every App sandboxes it's own files and other apps can't get at them, even a common shared folder would work but Apple don't even allow that.

Heat was very obviously external as the outside was melted and the inside was only slightly marked, the story would probably have been called out as dubious right away if the army of Apple fanboys hadn't seized on it started posting it everywhere and ignoring all the evidence.

Even I'm surprised someone was stupid enough to put their phone in a microwave mind you.

What you have to remember about black holes is they even twist space around them so anything going past that event horizon is going to be in a crazy whirlpool of spacetime so escape is impossible even if something is completely massless. Granted this is just based my own thoughts and not based on any real understanding of physics.

Comment Ruined my day (Score 5, Insightful) 329

First thing I saw when I turned on my PC and I actually came from the Slashdot iGoogle widget.

I've been using iGoogle since it first launched and it's really the only reason I use many of Googles services and also the only reason I bother logging into Google at all.

Very disappointed in honesty I think I'll probably end up giving Bing a try simply because I can't think of anything else to replace it with.

Comment Think they denied me as well (Score 1) 1116

I tried to buy an iPod Touch there a few years ago and they claimed they didn't have any, Now this wasn't just after a release or anything like that and I wouldn't think the iPod is a huge seller anymore, I think it was pretty obvious they just didn't want to sell me one. Could well be because it was my first time in an Apple store and I think I was probably looking at the people who obviously spent their free time just hanging out there like they were morons which I have to admit I was really thinking at the time. Still cost them at least £300 as I wanted a 64gb, also just for the record I'm just a normal white guy in Northern Ireland.
