  • No U.S. Launch Event For The BlackBerry Passport, But Does It Really Matter? [View article]
    Whatever, it'd still fit in my wallet! With so many regarding the iPad as "portable", the Passport clearly has no problem in this regard.

  • How Twitter And Facebook Survive [View article]
    I buy the need for continuous development (and I wish the writers/installers of automated procedures would understand this, and make "human initiative" a frequent option!) but always found change for change's sake to be irritating. As for FB, it does nothing for me (and I haven't been tempted to even look at Twitter) so it's continuing growth is a source of constant bemusement!

    Or memorise them? Newton reportedly would add the logs of 7 and 3, to determine that the product was somewhere between 20 and 22, which seems a bit long winded!

    When I got my first computer (a Pentium 90, which I still have) in 1994, they weren't at all common in European homes (though I'd been using CAD since '89) but BG was doing his stuff a decade earlier, and if you haven't mastered a thing in three decades, it'd be a good idea to give up, right?

  • Bank of America raising another $3B after mortgage fine [View news story]
    It's reported that 86% (if memory serves) of options expire worthless, so I wouldn't expect too much from them as indicators; the "house" wins, as ever...

    Here's another one; sites that only let one join by going through FB or Google +, will not be enjoying my participation.

  • BlackBerry Passport: Microsoft Surface Part Deux [View article]
    Same here (or could it be by NFC?) but it would need to be locked to the phone, while in use, I should think? Google already do this with TV, so there's no apparent technical difficulty!

    It hasn't made them a soaring success, either! As before, I've not seen any mention of the Passport, locally, not one!

    I understood that the attraction of Vertu phones is that they are hand built (or am I getting my manufacturers mixed up?) but that being a guarantee of "quality" hasn't been true for decades, and I don't get why people pay so much more for something that is purely symbolic. As for the Mi4, while I don't remember the details, I was impressed by the specs, which included many features I've not seen on any other product, let alone at that price. The downside is that it's only available in a limited n° of markets...

    It's already possible with LED projectors, but they are a bit fragile. Wouldn't it be easier to have each room fitted with a large screen, to which a doctor can hot-plug his smart phone?

    I have to admit I've never understood why anyone would pay thousands more for a phone (or watch, or car) that does basically the same thing as all the others, but they do sell.

    Well, if you don't count Xiaomi's latest offerings, which, admittedly, are in limited markets.

    Would that be a World beater, or egg beater?

    You'd expect so, but I see little sign of it happening!
