  1. The older Macbooks are only 32-bit aren't they? The Core Duo ones I mean. Cos that is what my one is so I'm assuming I wont see much of an improvement in speed.

    I'm thinking of waiting as I would like to get a new laptop at the start of next year so have held off getting the iLife update, and might save this as well.

     

    I've read several reviews as well as you guys comments, and it definitely sounds worth upgrading to. My only concern is how much it would really benefit my older Macbook.


  2. My girlfriend had my old iPhone and got a years free unlimited data, and also picked a Bolt-on. She has unlimited O2 texts. Probably best to go into a shop and explain what you want and they should sort you right out.


  3. I have an HTC Hero - the "chin" is much subtler than it looks, and makes the phone nice to hold and use as a phone/

     

    As for the software, it's OS is nice 'n' speedy, has lots of nice integration with Facebook and Twitter, and it's got a nicely stocked (almost entirely free) Android Market for apps.

     

    If you run too much stuff (ie Google Maps + several browser windows + a complex game) at once, it'll chug a bit, but as long as you shut stuff when done, it's fine. If it was a bit faster, it would be an iPhone-killer. As it stands, it's an iPhone peer. Oh, and it costs a lot less! :awesome:

     

    I can't recommend it enough, buy it!

     

    I watched a video on Youtube of the phone and the OS and it did look pretty decent. I still don't think it looks as good as the iPhone (aspects were better) but it looked good enough that if I didn't have an iPhone I'd certainly be considering one.


  4. Agree with people saying this game needs to be harder. Playing Monkey Ball 1 and knowing pretty much all the levels were fully skill based and getting pissed off and throwing a controller in frustration only to pick it right back up again was amazing. LOVE that game.

    Monkey Ball 2 was the same but the luck based levels were just far too annoying. And Banana Blitz the bosses and jumping do their best to ruin it and the tilting makes the other bits too easy. I want the option to use a Gamecube controller in this one.


  5. Just wanted to say, I'm really loving the iPhone 3GS. The other day I pressed voice activation for the first time in the car, I told it to "Play playist: five stars" and yknow what... it did :D Was well impressed, considering I hadn't even had to record or train it to my voice. Also used the GPS to find my way to Oxford Road in Manchester, bought the Ocarina app which is... boring. Bought Sonic, Peggle and a couple of other apps, watch Top Gear on my breaks at work as well as browsing the net in Tesco's car park and checking my emails. Taken some surprisingly good pictures... it's just all good :) And the battery tends to easily last me all weekend (I plug it in most of the day while I'm at work). The compass is very neat too, helps when walking around looking for something in Sattelite image mode on the map.

     

    This is how I felt when first getting an iPhone. It's just cool being able to do all this stuff wherever you are. I really couldn't do without one anymore :p


  6. inFAMOUS will get cheaper, you won't see deals on recent Arcade titles for at least 6 months. Unless you happen upon some cheap Points cards, but then you'd most likely be able to afford both anyway.

     

    Yeah, I'll have enough for my birthday actually. I can get a points card of 2100 off Amazon for £15, and then get another 500 off the console. And I can get inFAMOUS :p for £30, so I could easily afford 3 arcade games and that. I've only bought about 3 games this year so I feel like I need a decent batch of new stuff to play.


  7. Really pleased at seeing the Monkey Island price. Will probably get a load of points for my birthday and get Worms 2, Splosion Man, and Monkey Island. Considering getting the Maw as well, but I'll play all the demo's first :p Can't decide between all those, or getting Infamous on PS3.


  8. I know what you mean, the way it sticks to walls sometimes & can't get up to where you want to go other times? But it feels like it was made that way, rather than buggy controls. Just need to get used to how jumping, sticking etc works in different situations...

     

    Yeah it's not buggy controls, it's your actual character sticking to a wall. It does my head in though. Also agree about the not being able to save during a level. I mean is this the 90's? A real issue for me when the game is frustrating me.


  9. Got a completely pointless reply from Thomson. The customer service guy clearly didn't have a clue and so copy and pasted the crap off their website.

     

    "Thank you for your email

    You can use portable electronic devices such as laptops, CD players, DVD

    players, gameboys and walkmans during your flight, providing they are

    not used during take-off or landing. If you wish to use such devices on

    board, they can be included as hand baggage in the cabin of the

    aircraft. The use of mobile phones, radios or any electronic

    transmitting device may not be used at any time that the aircraft is in

    motion."

     

    Not answering my question at all. No mention of Airplane Mode at all.


  10. Yeah I'm pretty sure no one would notice but my moms a bit funny about flying and if the flight attendant announces that phones with airplane mode must be turned off for the whole flight she's gonna moan like fuck if I use my iPhone. So I want to make sure I'm definitely OK to use it.

     

    I've emailed Thomson to see what they say about it as well. At the end of the day this is what Airplane Mode is designed for so there shouldn't be a problem.


  11. As my iPhone is now my main iPod, and has all my music and a couple of films on it, does anyone know if I'd be able to use my iPhone in 'Airplane Mode' on a flight?

    My flight will be with Thomson Airways. I know the point on Airplane mode is so you can use it on a plane but not all of them allow you to use a phone at all.

     

    I may have asked this before, but I think all someone said was pretend it's an iPod Touch.

     

    My old Video iPod wont last long enough to watch a film in flight, but I don't want to be halfway through one and then have someone tell me to switch it off. As far as I'm concerned there is no difference between iPod Touch and iPhone in Flight Mode.

     

    Anyone had any issues with this?


  12. I'm finding this game too frustrating to play. The jumping and sticking to things is just becoming a real issue for me. I love the graphics and the concept of the game but the control of Blob really pisses me off, to the point where I'm not sure I actually want to play through it.


  13. Does Gears Of War 2 still have matchmaking problems?

    Because I just borrowed it and am going online for the first time and I´ve been waiting in matchmaking for like 10 minutes searching for a game...

     

    I find it to be utter crap as well. It stops me from playing it, it just takes too long to get started on a game.


  14. Well that's My XBOX merged with Spotlight. Which is not how it is right now. Spotlight is already there simply for advertising so I don't think anyone cares about that. Also there isn't a problem with speed, so I don't know where you're getting this from.
