    Jack Reacher Fans

    Tom Cruise? Jack Reacher?! What idiot did that casting!? Why not just stick Shia La Bouf or Steve Carroll into the role.... *rolls eyes* Sorry to disagree but I don't think Cruise is an "amazing actor", he's okay, and he's been lucky to have been high profile enough to draw big box office hits...

    Gadget Show Live 2012

    As long as Polly-anna doesn't sing again... I think she's very nice, great.. Personality.. But, singing really isn't her fortè! Sent from my iPad using iPF

    Would you buy a 99$ HP Touchpad?

    I'd buy one, it's only a matter of time before hackers get Android running on it. £100 for a decent full sized android tablet has got to be worth anyone's money. I'm Apple and iPad through and through; but I'm not fanboish enough to not think that's a good deal! Sent from my iPad using iPF

    Name a Pet Peeve!

    Hmm... Aggressive stance that. We'll ignore the huge ecological impact of lithium mining for starters then (the quantity we'd require for wide scale EV use is far beyond what we use in our phones/ipads/etc....) Plus the vast majority of the planets electricity IS NOT from renewables or...

    Wife with iPad vs Husband with Xoom

    This is a point I made about Android phones before - in the UK (and anywhere else handsets are heavily subsidised by mobile networks), Android phones are much cheaper than iPhones. Now, some of us are willing to pay the premium for Apple devices because of customer service, build quality...

    How much do you pay to go to the movies?

    At the local Odeon multi - £9.90 for a Premier seat (bigger comfy one - best rows in the cinema) and about £8 for a normal seat :(

    Reasons why people hate the ipad...debunked

    With due respect I don't think either of those two things were unknown by the wider apple user base. ;). I'd bet money that in January/February 2012, there will be a new iPad3. Notwithstanding the outbreak of World War 3.. And even then I think Apple would be irritated to change their release...

    Reasons why people hate the ipad...debunked

    Ref the earlier comment about not being able to download music/video and have it automatically integrate into your iPod/video app. You can if you buy it from the iTunes store. ;). I do have some sympathy for the complaint, but I think its one of the things consumers need to understand and...

    Yeah, but that still won't turn my freshly built HTPC into the 12 cored MacPro I wish it was ;)

    Name a Pet Peeve!

    I can't help thinking you're wrong... ;) See, British bacon actually looks like meat... American bacon looks (and tastes) like some scrapings from a shoe. Horrible stuff. And I'll add more seeing as it's moved to cars; Electric cars - an environmental white elephant which are impractical for...

    What is DELL thinking ? Ipad Fail??

    ...which is more to do with legacy than anything else I'd suggest. Nobody ever got fired for buying Microsoft. I think it's almost inevitable when a brand becomes almost a monopoly simply by having the best product at the time. After a while they stop innovating and die; it wouldn't be...

    What is DELL thinking ? Ipad Fail??

    Wishful thinking? Gizmodo carried a report the other day about tablet sales and how the iPad wasn't just dominant, but all conquering. :)

    Reasons why people hate the ipad...debunked

    Couldn't care less if someone hates the iPad. It's not my fault they're poor and can't afford to buy one. :). I'll be sure to throw some small change at them the next time I leave Starbucks ;)

    Email attachment while relying or forwarding

    I have to say, the poor implementation of attachments (I.e. NONE) in Mail is one of the few things I really hate about my iPad. :(. It is HUGELY irritating.

    Name a Pet Peeve!

    American bacon. Seriously - what the hell is that stuff really? I'm pretty sure it hasn't been near a pig in the last decade... If ever. People who insist on using text speak and no punctuation in text messages. I've actually stopped dating someone because it irritated me so much, I ended up...

    I want to order the Apple TV ~ Now!

    I think that comes down to personal choice and how you decide to integrate it with the rest of your home entertainment kit. Personally, I like all my media to be in one place, and have my various devices fetch it from there - so the ATV2 is best for me. (it even bothers me that my cable...

    Google's internet connection

    I'm surprised the US average is that high seeing how many people live in comparatively remote areas. They do know that measuring the ping off their own servers is kinda cheating right? I thought I was doing pretty well with a 15ms ping! (from Lincoln, UK to Milton Keynes, UK)

    I want to order the Apple TV ~ Now!

    For the benefit of non-US forum users, and those that just want to stream their iTunes store/library media - you do not need a Netflix subscription.

    Out your HTPC & Media Servers!

    I could do with working out a way to take a feed from my V+HD cable box and copy it to my HPTC, but Virgin lock their boxes down more than Apple(!). I think the only thing I can do is pass it via SCART or another analogue means which is obviously far from ideal. Oh.. And I need to sort out...

    I want to order the Apple TV ~ Now!

    ....and they need to make up rubbish to justify why they've spent $100’s on a cable for no good reason. ;) I will say that analogue cables (such as speaker 'wire') - is a different beast and quality IS everything. Fair point if you have the AirPort Express regarding music by the way, and...

    Does Apple Cheat on their taxes like Google's 31B?

    I want to order the Apple TV ~ Now!

    Except who wants to sit right next to their TV using their iPad which now has a big cable hanging out of the side? The thing I really like about the AppleTV is being able to be around the house, tap away from a web page on the iPad, hit the remote app, flick through all my music, pick an album...

    I want to order the Apple TV ~ Now!

    Apple only call it AppleTV. Only users tend to talk about the AppleTV and AppleTV2. Primarily you stream from your iTunes library wherever you keep it. The computer you have your iTunes on needs to also be on whenever you want to stream from it. You can also "stream" from your...

    iOS 5- what would you like to see for iPad?

    Create "groups" of photos in the Photo app by holding/wobble/drag just like you do with Apps. Like some sort of off the wall way of organising things.. maybe you could call them.. "Folders" or *gasp* "Albums"! ;)

    Does Apple Cheat on their taxes like Google's 31B?

    ...and the law makes certain provisions for certain companies in different positions. The principle of it is exactly the same; companies change their situations in order to make financial sense. The same way as there are plenty of people out there who change their situation to make financial...

    Out your HTPC & Media Servers!

    I haven't dealt with that problem yet - my main concern being lack of an unlimited data subscription on either my phone or iPad. I just accept I have what I have really :( I'm aware that mine is massively OTT for what i really need for an HTPC, but at least I shouldn't need to mess with it for...

    Out your HTPC & Media Servers!

    (currently fitting a motherboard!) That's one serious set up! Probably worth adding that i'm a Virgin Media subscriber (cable provider In the UK), which gives me a set top box with a HD capacity I can't remember, three tuners, and provides me with all my SD and HD channels. This is why I...

    Out your HTPC & Media Servers!

    Seeing as there isn't a more specific area for this... Would anyone like to chat about their HTPC (Home Theatre PC) and/or Media Servers; specs, how they've integrated it into the rest of their home entertainment system, and their Apple (and other..) devices? :) I've just got curious while i'm...

    Aircraft Carrier For Sale (no, really)

    You'll need to source your own GR7/AV8B Harriers for it though, because I think we've flogged ours off to the USMC. :o/ it's not like we'd find it useful, I mean, its hardly like we've planned to intervene in a country with a significant coastline on a nearby sea...... ....wait a minute!

    Bt openzone issue

    I know many of the monthly subscriptions do include various providers wifi - but it even varies between the monthly tariff you're on. Just to confuse things even more.

    Bt openzone issue

    If you're with orange you get free BT Openzone. You usually have to faff around with connect/disconnnect and sometimes then open safari to get the separate log in page to display. BT Openzone is possibly the worst designed wifi hotspot system ever though. ;) If you only use Starbucks, if you...

    Any genuinely useful JB apps other than MyWi?

    Favorite Ipad Browser

    Atomic - desktop like browsing, dropbox integration, built in downloader, tabs, changeable Browser ID, Privacy options, Adblock, multitouch support.. What's not to like? Safari is adequate, but Atomic is worth spending the money on.

    Time Warner Cable Becomes the First Cable Company to Launch Live TV iPad app

    Oh, and while not a downloadable App - tvcatchup.co.uk offers an iPad specific web app which streams all of the free to view digital terrestrial channels. So hardly groundbreaking!
