My company is in regional WA and we use a Ubiquiti NanoStation M2 to beam internet from the camp at the top of the hill to the laboratory at the bottom of it.
Connection is stable and speeds are fast (they max out at 15KM / 150mbps ), just like if you had run an Ethernet, but i imagine the pings wouldn't be too great, so these guys in the article might not give two damns about gaming
Just a pity that AndroidTV has zero existence in Aus outside of buying a sony TV or importing a shield/xiaomi
like every suburb around mine is getting it.
we have some shitty fibre company called fuzenet that we refuse to goto based on horrid customer service and connection stability, wish the nbn would just buy them out and connect an extra 100 odd suburbs.
Got the feeling they have moved all areas to "planned" as they didnt even have any information for my suburb up until recent.
Getting tired of these nbn adverts, kind of like rubbing salt into the wound for those that dont have it
Its going to need some updates,
Also i tried to play a catchup show on SBS on demand, it redirected me to google chrome which redirected me to the catchup app in the play store.
Settings show two options
Low (700kbps or lower)
Med (1200kbps or lower)
Medium is set to default
So its roughly 540mb per hour
I emailed them a few months ago asking about an androidTV app, they gave a generic response that only compatable tvs can get it.
If you know anyone with a sony androidtv you could get the apk and sideload it
I use alternative android apps
"Metal" which uses the facebook mobile
and "Disa" which hooks into messenger along with other services like whatsapp and SMS
If they are going to go as far as make ChromeOS run android apps, they should just scrap the entire thing and make a Android Desktop variant
Presto unfortunately is backed by foxtel, so they have more contracts than netflix (for now)
I used it for all but 4 seconds as they wont allow android devices that have been rooted, but wont tell you this until you have signed up for the trail and entered your CC details
For two people from Perth to Bali, get a good deal with Airasia/Jetstar and a decent hotel is around $60 a night, in theory its possible to go for 2 and a half months on 5k, but this info graph doesn't include food/drinks/entertainment
Well 4G gets me a good 30mbps, which is still 3 times faster than my adsl2+, but whats the latency on mobile networks? if bandwidth was more for cheaper it could be a good alternative to cable/nbn
Just curious, what is stopping them from seeing you signed up on an Australian credit card and restricting you to that region?, obviously it would suck if you went overseas on a holiday and cant watch netflix, but that seems like the most efficient way to "solving" this "issue"
yeah nah, their customer service was bad enough when we had it, don't want to imagine what horrors adding broadband to the mix does
My bad, clearly missed a few specs!
Guess the point I was trying to make is I think the price for what you get isn't the best, lots of alternative brands with equal or better hardware for well under half the price
Besides the IP rating, nothing really stands out for me, I've had a huawai honor 6 since Dec 2014 that I got for $400 and matches these stats...
Install a lockable door handle, i did that and keep the original under my bed, no damage done to the property, also a safe is a good idea for smaller items, and consider fixing it to some furnature you own to make it harder to move
I tick every single damn box there 0.e
Yeahhh i disagree with remark #7
my superintendent doesn't know half of what people do, only what he reads in reports, and the reports show shining perfect employees
Theres honestly a heap of emulators out there these days, some are better than others for sure, but id guess its down to personal preference.
What really needs attention these days is a launcher, a front end UI that ties multiple emulators together as if its a console.
Already lots out there like GameEx, MaLa, mGalaxy, EmulationStation or even setting up Kodi for it
Having been Qantas FF Platinum and now down to Gold i can confirm that most Qantas Business lounges are typically worse than the standard lounge.
Cathay in Hong kong + Melbourne Business are just fenced off little areas that offer more desk space, the food is the same but actually worse because theres less people consuming it making it get replaced less.
Also unsure why some airlines wont just offer lounge access on your flights for a fee,
There needs to be more tutorials for database security
-RESTful web services and OAuth, i have been looking into them for about 2 months now and this is the closest i have come to getting something working
Also hosting looks terrible, google cloud, azure, amazon all seem to want you to use their API's and you pay more if you try and not.
I just want to securely connect a windows/android app to a mysql server, its so damn hard :C
I finished school back in 2006, they were far more focused on sports, closest thing i had to coding was digital media, where we had an assignment that used GameMaker Studio, but as it was drag and drop i finished it in a weekend.
Would have loved coding, could be so far ahead by now
Rooting, ADB, Roms etc etc are all really useful to know about, its pretty much like formatting your computer.
xda-developers.com is an excellent resource, search for the phone you have in the top right, and it will have a dedicated forum, with downloads for custom rom and tools.
My phone was a chinese honor 6 and it had some fairly bad bugs, took me an afternoon to fix it but it was worth it
Really worth mentioning to research holidays of countries you may have a connecting flight in.
My flight got delayed in hong kong on the way to tokyo due to engine troubles, it was apparantly a public holiday so i had to hang around for 10 hours for the next flight!
