  • jojonl mentioned you in How to backup my travel photos?

    @isomeri: A couple of years ago I just bought a cheap less than $200,- mini laptop (I think the screen is only 8" or 9") and replaced the 250Gb harddrive with a 2Tb harddrive. No problems, no hassle, no multiple memory cards, which are also more expensive if you add up and also more fragile.

    @isomeri: If you can get access to the internet then i would def go with the laptop, if you're gonna be traveling on foot a lot something like the 11" or 13" macbook air would be ideal, it's small light and strong. sorry not sure what's available on the windows side, but i know there are comparable systems.

    The image bank would be the only other option i can think of that would suit your situation, but they can be really expensive

  • Falcon mentioned you in Windows Phone’s monolithic 2014 update & the impending death of the desktop.

    @isomeri: It wasn't an official thing, just a leak. It'll be weird at first, but in the end I think it will be better (ie - if the Back button is phased out then it can be replaced with something else).

    @AtomicEdge: From what I understand Windows 8 can be SUPER locked down with enterprise controls. So if you develop some Metro apps, you can pin only the apps you want your employees to use on the Start screen and they can use only those apps. They can't get to the desktop to fuck with anything, they can't download any other programs, and it's literally impossible for them to get viruses.

    That was great and fun and reminded me of the "old Tested".

    I see what you did there...

  • Falcon mentioned you in The Nokia Lumia 1020 and its 41MP camera

    @isomeri: I got to hold a 1020 yesterday and it seems noticeably lighter than the 920. Between it and what Nokia has done with the 925, I'm already excited for their 2014 lineup which will have what will seem like mind blowing improvements.

    Now if Microsoft would give us some damn updates without going through the carriers... Apparently GDR2 RTM'd in something like April, and has been sitting in the hands of the carriers since then.

  • Falcon mentioned you in Nokia Puts The 41 Megapixel PureView Sensor in $300 Lumia 1020 Windows Phone

    @isomeri: At launch people's phones were being bricked. Though that could've been a combination of things, and chances are updates have fixed whatever caused it. But I saw someone I follow on twitter recently complain about waking up with a dead phone left on the charger.

    USB charging is 100% reliable. Until wireless charging is also 100% reliable I want no part in it.

  • Falcon mentioned you in Nokia Puts The 41 Megapixel PureView Sensor in $300 Lumia 1020 Windows Phone

    @isomeri: I've heard just enough unreliable things about wireless charging that I'm too paranoid to use it.

  • RichardNixon mentioned you in Tested: Centrifugal vs. Masticating Juicers

    The ending was totally awesome Joey!

  • Artso mentioned you in CES 2013: How Liquipel Will Make Your Phone Waterproof

    If you search Youtube you get some people talking about how this doesn't really work that great. I'm suspicious but if it works as intended it is really cool.

    @isomeri said:

    I still wouldn't trust this technology to protect my electronics from water. Having it would be a nice bonus though, just to protect from rain, snow, sweat and random accidents.

    Exactly. The point of this technology is not so you can go swimming with it. The PR guy was kind of misleading in the video. It's more for protection against accidents.

  • HKZ mentioned you in Thinking of making the jump to Windows Phone 8...
    @isomeri:  you can change them, but to only what Nokia and Microsoft provide. Custom sounds aren't allowed, and that's just incredibly dumb to me. I don't like any of the tones provided, and I've had phones for easily 10 years that could do that. Not having that feature is so incredibly dumb I can't fathom why it wasn't a feature . That's just disappointing because WP8 is a really, really good OS, but that's a deal breaker to me. It's a feature that should be included and there's no indication that Microsoft even cares that people are asking for it and have been from day one.
  • Fish_Face_McGee mentioned you in Thinking of making the jump to Windows Phone 8...

    @isomeri: I believe he means custom sounds.

  • Brackynews mentioned you in CES 2013 Day 0: Unveiled, Augmented Reality, Nvidia's Shield

    @isomeri said:

    I'm only getting audio through my rear channels.

    <insert too-easy head-up-arse joke here> ;) But yeah even on a stereo setup it basically sounds like faux 3D.

  • Robinson mentioned you in CES 2013 Day 0: Unveiled, Augmented Reality, Nvidia's Shield

    @isomeri: same here

  • gpbmike mentioned you in Dude, I got a Dell

    @isomeri said:

    I remember the time my neighbor bought a Dell. We played Operation Flashpoint for months.

    Also played a lot of OFP, but never multiplayer for some reason.

    @Cloppy said:

    20.4 GB that's so much space, you will never run out!

    When I was in high school my friend had 1GB of music and I thought "How could you ever have that much music?"

  • Falcon mentioned you in Getting a Nokia Lumia 920 tomorrow, can't wait!

    @isomeri: OMG, stealing that last one.

  • will mentioned you in OCTOBERKAST 2: 24 More Hours of This Is Only a Test For the Kids - October 26, 2012 @ 6PM PDT

    @isomeri: It's 1AM on the 27th, which made things really confusing to everyone, so I omitted it.

  • HeadNodShy mentioned you in The Walking Dead - Episode IV written by Gary Whitta

    @isomeri said:

    It was a good episode, but not my favorite of the bunch. I felt like I could predict a lot of the plot points and nothing major happened in the episode at all, except for the ending of course. Still there were a few great moments in there, and I'm really waiting for the last chapter.

    Same here. The percentage breakdown at the end seems to suggest the choices weren't as conflicting as previous episodes. I know didn't feel as shitty at the end that's for sure.

  • scaramoosh mentioned you in Nokia Lumia 920, 820 & Windows Phone 8

    @isomeri said:

    A new video has surfaced, showcasing the now infamous OIS feature. The video looks pretty stellar to me. I don't care at all that the PureView camera is not the same oversampling 41-megapixel model found in the 808. A stable camera is always more important than megapixels or a long zoom.

    EDIT: Engadget is currently visiting Nokia in Finland and have posted two new videos, both shot with the Lumia 920. The first is a short comparison between the recording capabilities of the 920 and iPhone 5. The second is an interview with CEO Stephen Elop, also shot with the 920. The Lumia 920 video seems to have some weird bopping and distortion, but by smartphone camera standards it does look pretty damn fine.

    Also what is up with the Mic? It sounds shit, like the phone hasn't got any noise cancellation or something.

    Looks to me that he struggled with the Windows phone UI not working properly as usual.

    @grbear: @isomeri: The HTC 8X is currently only 400 pounds on Amazon. That's stupid cheap.
