Sweet F****ng Christ, i am in WA so i can do it!
Might still be in beta?? i just installed it on android and theres nothing for japanese.
Also just noticed every single english option is the american flag, kind of irritating
I have made a batch file i update every few months that strips all the bloat crap, it works,well until a major update "tweaks" the command you need to run.
Wonder if enterprise comes with all the bloat, id pirate it for that alone.
I haven't even used kickass since it got originally shut down and rebooted, its not what it used to be.
I havent used stylish in years,
Became a part time job finding and adding styles to websites, and swapping ones that have broken because the website had an update
I avoid plane toilets like the plague, usually its pretty easy for me for any flight up-to 5 hours.
1) Have light meals the day before, and do not gorge on the plane
2) have a coffee or two a few hours before the flight to "stimulate" any need to use the bathroom before the flight.
3) buy a big bottle of water at the airport to hydrate on the plane but drink it sparingly or you will need to goto the bathroom frequently.
4) always pack some anti-bacterial wet wipes on your carry on that are great for sanitising and refreshing your hands, face, tray table, armrests, toilet seat etc, sounds a bit over the top but most planes have a small window of opportunity to get cleaned before its off to its next destination, and its better to be overzealous while on a plane than to get sick when you arrive at your destination.
when an article turns out to be a video i loose interest, especially if i have to sit through a 30 second advert about a car i could never afford...
Tipping, $6 beers, Tabs...
has to be an american article adapted for LH au right?
its got pros and cons
pro: it makes local retailers think twice about how much they are charging
con: usually means they block the international purchasing from their store and force you to use their new local option, which typically is a little more expensive and has far less products
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...
