    News Windows 7 Released to Manufacturing

    granted oems will need to sort themselves out, but why does that stop them putting it in shops for people to buy or online for people to download right now? seems very very odd to me to have a huge quarter of a year delay between it being finished and being able to get it.

    News Windows 7 Released to Manufacturing

    does anyone know what the huyge delay between rtm, oems getting it and being able to buy it in a shop? is it that these oems have paid a lot of money to get it first? i cant believe its a production issue, dvds can be made in their millions every week. infact why dont they just put it up for...

    Windows 7 - First Impressions

    been there, dont have it. Under a NORMAL folders properties there is a "hidden" tick box, which just sets the attributes to hidden, which does nothing anyway since like I already said, I want to see all hidden files and folders so i know whats hiding on my pc. I did say this in the original...

    Windows 7 - First Impressions

    would be nice ot hide these fake folders from view. its taking up unwanted space every time i open explorer, if its a redundant folder, provide a way to hide it (while still allowing me to see normal 'hidden' files) apart from the mouse problem it seems like a minor upgrade to vista to me...

    iPhone 3G

    was still looking at the new one....until i actually tried to use safari on it and realised that half my sites wont work because it has no support for java or flash. So all this 3g this and 3g that is just worthless in terms of browsing because millions of sites simply will not work.

    iPhone 3G

    in store activation = jailbreak and unlock is almost dead and somewhat pointless since it means you are on the contract and network before you leave the store. which means i probably wont bother with it.
