Re: Lol Its happening again :)

If you haven't realized it by now, don't buy hardware that says you will be getting X and Y features "soon". Buy it for exactly what it has at the time. If you go buy a honeycomb tablet right now with 3.0 with the promise that 3.1 and 3.2 is coming soon, don't come complaining on any forums when it ...

Re: It was worth the wait. Full HD Archos Gen 9 Androids is

I'm actually surprised by how many people care about the 1080p on tablets. I find it extremely annoying to have to connect a HDMI cable, which is the only time 1080 matters. Now give me something like airplay for android and I'd be all over it. :)

Re: Why I Am Returning My Archos 101

1) Many people seem to expect an iPad or Xoom experience for half the price. There is a reason why those devices are $500+. :) 2) The "application not found" error to me was fixed when I moved apps back to internal storage. I know this isn't a great solution due to limited space, but for me at least...

Looking for one hand case for A101

I can't remember where I've seen things like this, and it is possible there isn't one that fits the 101. I want to get a case that has a strap on the back that allows me to hold it in one hand. I've seen a few examples that work for the ipad, but clearly those won't fit. A similar thing for the A70 ...

Re: Got my 101 - works great - disappointed about the future

Anytime you want to be able to do self upgrades you need to give up a lot. Usually means a much larger case because things you can remove take up more space than thinks that are set in place. Usually means a lot more cost(in this case probably more cost than just putting 512MB in there to begin with...

Re: Thinking about buying 101 8GB - need opinions from owner

You are basically saying that noone should buy this and spend your money elsewhere. There simply are no alternatives in this same price point. For what the OP wants it for(reading, web browsing mainly it seems), the RAM will not be an issue. The USB port will not be an issue. Wifi I guess could be a...

Re: How do programs get in memory

Android manages programs in memory much differently than Windows. There is no need to worry about these programs starting up and staying running. You don't need to close them using the system monitor (unless you are running out of memory and your device is crawling along-then you need to track down...

Re: Archos 70 or 101

What something you can easily take with you? 70

What something with a bigger screen to use on the sofa? 101


Both are great. I have both and I find I use the 70 more often just because I can take it with me easier.

Re: can anyone tell me how to copy a dvd to my archos 101

I've recently done this myself to 90-100 DVDs. Very simple process - DVD Shrink - Copy the data into an ISO on your harddrive. Do make sure you copy as an ISO as the vob files seem to be a little harder to deal with. You can skip this step if you just want to encode from the DVD. This will NOT do al...

Re: Are .APK's legal to install without Marketplace?

Everything google has done with android really points towards them wanting to do basically whatever you want on it. If the google applications was a paid app I'd feel differently, but they give away every piece of this software for free in the various forms they all exist in. The only difference in ...

Re: 70 vs 101 as an e-reader

101 - I'd suggest it for reading if you are able to set it down on a table and stand it up. Comics(or anything with a lot of images) would also work very well with this. 70 - I like this better for books/RSS feeds. I just like the idea that I can easily hold it in 1 hand, scroll with the other and i...

Re: endgadget remarks

As people have noted, Engadget is directed to a fairly wide audience. I might hesitate to give the A70 as a gift in part because it doesn't quite work perfectly from the get-go. I agree that it not working 100% perfectly is a concern, but the bigger concern for me would be how that person would use...

Re: Did I stumble onto something good?

Too much amperage will not "overdrive" a device. The device will only draw the amps that it needs. Think about it. You plug your little "wall wart" charger into a wall plug that delivers 115v @ 10 amps at minimum when it only needs maybe 1 or 2 amps at most to work. :) This isn't true. There is sti...

I'm looking for something like this as well. I've tried both winamp and doubletwist.

Not sure if it was engadget or not, but I also read that Verizon was cutting the price by $100 on the galaxy tab. It was normally $600 and you didn't have to sign a contract. Maybe they are just finding out that most people are still signing up for data, just not locking in for 2 years. Still a bit ...

Re: Having Memory Confusion

Your device has 8GB of storage. Android requires a system partition to store the system code along with application code. Archos has dedicated 299MB for this. The apps2SD is the idea that a game like angry birds can be split up into 2 parts. The first part is code that is requires for the app to run...
