The Future of Planetcrap's Message Board
January 7th 2012, 08:01 CET by Charles

With Quarter to Three in the process of becoming a forum that no one can post on at all (with a current 1/15th of the posts belonging to banned users), is this finally Planetcrap's chance to regain the spotlight? Will the site revive? WILL MORN COME BACK?

Probably not.

Btw thanks Caryn for your post on iPad. I ended up kinda impulse buying one. It's surprisingly heavy!

I found the Readability app way better than Instapaper (which I've been using up until now), so I moved all my bookmarks into Readability. Got Reader for rss', but looking into Flipboard atm. It looks great I'm just not sure it's intended as an RSS reader (though it does support pulling from Google Reader).

iMockup, Sketchbook, iDraw, Snapseed and Koder are on my planned download list so more experiences to come (only planned because I fucked up a few weeks ago and burnt through my allowed bandwidth cap for the month, woe is me. Even my phone's bandwidth is at 200%).

Anyone with iPad thoughts, tricks and insight do share them.

If you start doing a lot of drawing and sketching you're going to want one of these. Don't even bother with any other stylus, they're all crap compared to this one, which is superb.

Also, iDraw just had a big update and the app is pretty damn close to the same functionality you'd find in Illustrator. I'm really, really impressed with it. I've been doing a bunch of stuff with it lately: this, this, this, and this (work in progress).

Any recommendations for an app to remotecontrol your Macs? A few minutes of googling didn't give me much insight. I imagine something that just works, like the Screen Sharing feature between Macs.

Pretty much. But if you go into Settings you can create a username for yourself.
Otherwise people can only find you if they're your friends on facebook.

So this may seem like a silly question, but is there really any functional difference between various ebook services? I've currently got Kobo, Kindle, and iBooks all installed on my iPad. Kobo seems to have this weird social media thing attached to it (plus: achievements!). Kindle I assume would have the largest selection. But iBooks seems the easiest to just buy a book.

I guess it comes down to price. Is any one of the three significantly cheaper than the others?

Anecdotal, but I usually compare prices between iBooks/Amazon and the Kindle stuff seems to be cheaper more often. For me.

I'm happy with Kindle because I can also read on my BB/Android/PC/web. Reading .pdf is clumsy and slow, but works, and I haven't needed to read any epub books so far.

Evernote is goddamn annoying*. Anyone here use an alternative? I use the app to collect various clippings from the net and for thoughts on projects I'd like to work on, but googling a bit hasn't really resulted in any obvious alternatives. Well, there is Microsoft OneNote...


* e.g groups don't show up in the iOS app at all. And notes can't be renamed from the iOS app, wut? And their website is literally unusable on an iPad because they do a bunch of fancy drag-n-drop stuff, can't even click on a note. Bah.

My only issue with the Kindle stuff is that syncing works perfectly between the Kindle and the iOS app, but if I read with the Windows 8 Metro app, or the Chrome app... it never syncs up when I go to load the books up again on the Kindle or iOS app. Dicks.

Windows 8 lol. I think I'll pass, the metro apps on the dev preview annoyed the fuck out of me.

~~~

So how about Samsung Galaxy Note?
+ It's got a stylus so it could be good for scribbling notes,
+ it's got the resolution of my Transformer,
+ it's the same price as BlackBerry 9900 with twice the hardware,
+ and I don't have to worry about RIM going tits-up.
- I would lose BBM, which I use to talk with exactly 1 person.
- I would lose push email, and instead get like whole several second delay in getting email.

Or maybe I should get HTC One X (Endeavor), since, you know, I totally need a quad-core phone.

The Note seems absolutely brilliant, save for two things:
- Samsung hasn't been particularly great with updates lately
- pocketability is virtually nonexistent (well, duh)

But if you can live with the size ( = have small enough backup phone), I'd say go for it.

Yeah, I think Windows 8 is going to be widely ignored outside of maybe tablets (and I'm not expecting Windows tablets to make a huge impact either).

anaqer: thanks for the warning, they already promised ICS update, so let's hope they don't delay. Also I carry my phone in bag's phone pocket, and BB9000 still leaves some free space, so I should be good.

deadlock: yeah... I mean, I wish MS luck and everything, but having Windows on 10" tablet would be like having Android on two non-touch 24" LCDs... you just take your favourite apps and habits and philosophy with you, and they don't fit the other format (e.g. apps on Windows tend to have miniature buttons; apps on Android take way too much screen space for mouse input).

I know all about Samsung's promise, but as an owner of a SE Xperia '11 class phone, I've been "burned" (well, actually, Gingerbread is quite alright). Sure, the update will come, but...

Yeah, Asus also said they were done with ICS update for Transformer and then it took like two months for Google to approve the update (which was still buggy anyway). Either way, I'll try to delay my instant gratification for a month or two while my berry still works. Also, I'm buying a non-branded phone as I don't want a 2-year contract, and the carrier with 6-month contracts doesn't offer a good price, so I guess bye bye $700.
