  1. I'm looking for a new phone and I've just seen the HTC Pulse, it's the first PAYG Android phone I've ever see and I've got a few questions about it and Android in general. 1) What version of Android does it come with and how do you update it, if I use a custom ROM will I never be able to get the customised ROM T-Mobile put on it back? 2) Is there an option in Android that will let me only check for email on WiFi and not using Edge or 3G don't want my credit going down the drain without realising it. 3) Doe it have a multimeter to when you turn the keyboard adjusts like on the iPhone? 4) Anyone know how much onboard storage it has, the G1 only had a small partition so Google struggled to bring Android updates to it because space was tight. 5) For
  2. Wow this forum is like a ghost town.
  3. I originally wanted to get a Samsung NC10 but that was a while ago and I'm not sure what the best netbook of the market is any more, I looking for something up to
  4. Does it work even if a partition has been made and its been reformatted?
  5. I was following this guide http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-...-working-guide/ and I accidently wiped the wrong thing and now my external hard disk has been wiped, I need help. It no longer appears in My Computer, I'm using Vista. What is a good data recovery app? Please help! I thinking of using a demo of Uneraser once I have a new partition on it, is this a good idea? Edit: Uneraser doesn't work well if you don't buy it anyone got any alternatives? In Computer Management in Vista I can't create a partition on the disk because it says the disk is Not Initialized, what does this mean and how can I fix it?
  6. Wow thanks, sorry it took me so long to reply. Edit: I've followed your advice but decided to use nLite to compile my own iso, no chance of nasty viruses then. I integrated the driver and SP3 and I am currently testing it in Virtual Box.
  7. Your welcome, I put quarters because there likely to be more accurate than just months which can change easily.
  8. First off hard drive usage, Vista used to take up around 20GB, Windows 7 takes up around 10GB. I believe the other specs won't be as high due to all the fine tuning and optimization that has gone on.
  9. Beta - December Q4 2008 - Q1 2009 Release Candidate - Q2 2009 - Q3 2009 RTM - Q4 2009 - Q1 2010 Hope that answers your question.
  10. Good news from the front on that one, for a piece of hardware to receive a Vista Compatible logo Microsoft insists (has made compulsory) that it has to run on Windows 7, this new policy has been in effect for a few months now.
  11. When Mac OS X 10.5 was released they claimed it had 300 new features, I wonder if Windows 7 will have that many but here's a list of how many they've got at the moment. New Technologies #1 DirectX 11 #2 WinMin - New Windows Core Kernel #3 WDDM 1.1 #4 Direct3D 11 #5 Desktop Window Manager #6 Direct2D and DirectWrite #7 NDIS 6.20 #8 DirectX Video Acceleration-High Definition (DXVA-HD) #9 AVCHD camera support and Universal Video Class 1.1 #10 Protected Broadcast Driver Architecture (PBDA) for TV tuner cards #11 Bluetooth audio stack #12 Support for up to 256 logical processors #13 VHD Support #14 New Fonts, for example Gabriola, etc. Security #15 Windows Solution Centre #16 Bitlocker to Go #17 AppLocker Management Features #18 PowerShell 2.0 #19 DirectAccess #20 BranchCache #21 Support for Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) #22 Device Stage #23 Feedback Tool Interface #24 SuperBar #25 Desktop Peek #26 Pin / Unpin Shortcuts #27 Jump List #28 Ribbon Interface Internet Explorer 8 #29 Accelerators #30 InPrivate #31 WebSlices #32 Smart Screen #33 Settings Backup using Windows Live Multimedia Updates #34 Media Centre Gadget #35 Improved File Format Aupport: - MP4, MOV, 3GP, AVCHD, ADTS, M4A, and WTV #36 Improved Media Codec Support: - H.264, MPEG4-SP, ASP/DivX/Xvid, MJPEG, DV, AAC-LC, LPCM, AAC-HE Other Features #37 Built-in XPS Support #38 Desktop Slide This might not look good but remember it's only a Alpha really. Also when Apple announced 300 new features 6 of them where screensavers and some were not features of Apple's just claims and I quote "Fastest Browser in the World". Get real Apple your Apple is the second slowest based of Sunspider Tests I did on my computers.
  12. I have a Dell Optliplex GX 260 that has two hard drives one 40GB and one 80GB. I was reinstalling XP and I accidentally deleted the partition on the 80GB, I installed XP on the primary 40GB but now Windows can't see the 80GB. Well I say it can't see it, I can't use it but it appears in the Device Manager. I thing I must have uninstalled it or something. The hard drive that no longer works properly is a Maxtor 6L080J4. Please help, this is my primary computer and I need to get it working as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. The computer is now running Windows XP Service Pack 3.
  13. I'm download my iso now! wish me luck!
  14. A while ago I came across AOL Desktop, it looked good in most parts and had some good features, but it had many downsides; 1. Built on Internet Explorer and 2. The whole program is just advertising for AOL products. If this had been made and branded as Netscape Desktop it would have much better. This gave me an idea instead of having four or five separate product lines why not have one Internet Suite that has all the benefits of all Mozilla products in one smaller package. It would make a lot of sense, for example it would prevent competition between Firefox and SeaMonkey. Below is a short list of other benifets: - @ Easier and faster to develop, not as many of Mozilla resources would be consumed due to more people working together on bits of the suite that would overlap. @ Easier to update, saves having to deliver one fix to each Mozilla product that has a vulnerability. @ Bundling software will boost Mozilla market share faster because someone may not want to download another Browser, Email Client, IM, etc. If they already have them downloaded when they got one its more likely they'd use it. @ Good opportunity to strengthen the relationship with Google, more of the search engines could be Google related like having Google Maps and YouTube installed by default. I'll go into more detail about this later. @ Easier for people to develop Add-ons for just one program instead of five! @ Better integration of all Mozilla technologies, a source of revenue for Mozilla could be that Google could pay to have software like Google Gears bundled into the suite. @ And lots lots more! Now I've taken a picture from AOl desktop and modified it with some ideas about what could be down and how Google could be integrated. Reply with your thoughts.
