ISP Refuses To Block the Pirate Bay

dswskinner Re:Why hasn't it clicked yet? (219 comments)

Yep. As a matter of fact you've been able to purchase music on the iPad since it was launched. iPod touch and iPhones have had the same capability for at least a couple of years now.

Android App Quality Pathetically Low Says Developer

dswskinner Re:Do people pay money for Android apps? (336 comments)

So Apples "walled garden" approach seems to be a benefit to developers? I think i'll take the perceived limitation if it keeps new apps coming to the platform.

Apple Rips Off Rejected App, Says Wireless Sync Developer

dswskinner Re:in this age (549 comments)

The Logo is basically a mash up of the Apple logos for iSync and Airport. So I would question if the developer has ownership of that. The name, fair enough, But how many permutations of "wireless" and "synchronisation" can you come up with? A bit like "app store" really, but i think Apple are in the wrong on that one.

Acer Announces First NVIDIA Ion2-Based Netbook

dswskinner Re:Finally (94 comments)

They aren't all uber-expensive.

I just bought an Acer 1810TZ for £440 off Dixons (with about £15 cashback from quidco). It's for the ULV 1.3Ghz C2D, 4Gb of Ram, ~7 hours battery. The only downside is the Intel integrated graphics. This is in a 11.6 inch case, perfect for dumping in my bag for use on call or for long journeys.

I'm thinking this machine with an ION2 would be almost the perfect ultra portable. Maybe an i3/i5 would be nice too, but i'm just greedy. The C2D is easily good enough for my purposes.
