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.

I'm on as: jonathanflavius. And, no, if you're going to draw multiple bags of dicks then please don't add me...

There are no good Android QWERTY phones. Sad face.

You mean like a physical, non-touchscreen keyboard?  Is this 2009?

Yes, because people stopped writing emails and taking notes in 2010.

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.

You're looking for a VNC app. Here's some recommendations.

I want to go to there.

No, they got touchscreens.

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.

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).

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.

Anyway, any to-do list app/services worth recommending? I don't need any priority, GPS, estimated nose scratchings needed to complete the task and such bullshit, just a list with subitems and online sync.

I've tried GTasks, Astrid Tasks, Remember The Milk and I don't particularly like either of them. On BlackBerry I use Got-2 Pro and it does what I need, minus the sync.

I don't like shouting on my phone in a tram, nor whispering to it in an office. Also, I don't like speaking in general. Talking to myself, maybe, but that at least doesn't sound weird to me. Saying "I hope you die and eat a bag of moldy dicks" aloud doesn't sound quite right, you know?

Not yet, but I was intrigued since yot said he uses it. To be honest I got more excited about the stylus, but small stylus + small area where you can write without having anywhere to rest your hand on + glass screen with no friction = not ideal. And by not ideal I mean not usable for emails / texting / long notes. It's great for what it's advertised for, taking a screenshot of maps and marking a pub and sending it to a stranger/tourist.

The iOS game Waking Mars is really really cool. I guess it's a puzzle game, but the overriding sense is one of exploration and growing mystery. It's ostensibly a 2D side scroller, you play a scientist exploring a cave on Mars when shit starts going down, and you have to progress by mastering the environment. IMO the less you know the better, I saw a split-second of the gameplay in some video and liked the look so much I just downloaded it. You should not necessarily see the whole trailer if you have a similar reaction: The trailer.


I've also played Crimson - Steam Pirates, and it's pretty cool. It's a turn-based strategy game with a cute story, you move ships around and use various powers. Beyond the initial free episode there are additional paid downloadable content, and they are alright as well if a tad too expensive. Trailer is here.
