Re: What is "Online Video Descriptions" in 2.1.03 FW Setting

It is a nifty little feature that is included because archos is a pmp focused company. I look at my videos, tap and hold one labeled justified.s1e13, select details. It gives me file size,codec, length and a button "get movie database information". I hit the button and get poster art, season and epi...

Re: MYTH BETWEEN ARCHOS VS IPAD

Archos fanboys are a funny group.
Say anything less then complimentary-no matter how true(ie. Build quality leaves a lot to be desired,device feels flimsy,back aluminum anel flexes an awful lot)-they swarm and attack. Try to discredit you as an "apple fanboy".

Re: http://www.notionink.com/

Taking a look at the site, some blog posts, etc-this thing isn't in mass production. They have people who ordered and paid for the device 2 monthsago who have not received a product. Looks like they shipped about 50 units only and have pushed delivery dates back on other orders. Does not seem like a...

Re: junk

Apple and the other big boys in electronics use tier 1 builders.
They also pay a lot of money to the builders, who want to keep their business.

When you build a small number of deviced, cut costs to the bone-you don't get the same treatment as Apple, Microsoft, Dell, etc.

Re: I live in Canada, Not Mars...

My friend to the North-you can't get them in the USA either.
Archos(a French company, by the way) is not doing large enough production runs to keep up with demand.

Be patient or look for something else.

Re: junk

Archos does not build them, they are manufactured in China.
Archos receives them boxed up and they sit in a warehouse.
Archos does not open each box and inspect them.
Any quality control is done in China at the factory.

You want low prices, quality suffers.

Re: Archos Payed activation?

No, there is no paid activation.
The seller is scamming you.

The only paid for thing is a codec pack to playback mpeg2 video.
This is optional and is done by you through the archos site only if you want it.
It is not mandatory or necessary.

It's not the A70-it's android.

Re: Cannot find Adobe flash on market

Wish android supported html5 better-CNN videos work perfectly on my iPad.

On archos-mobile site videos look horrible, very pixellated.
Full version site, video playback is jerky.
I am using the droid x version of flash.

So far, flash experience is pretty bad.

Re: Where is Adobe Flash Player ... ???

There has not been, nor is there now an official archos flash player avsilable.
If you need flash that badly, install the market hack and install the generic version or search the forum for the droidx version.

Re: What would you like to ask Archos at CES?

So archos had a booth and all they showed was the big home tablet?
didn't answer any questions?
No hints about what is going on in the new year?

Archos had nothing to say at all?

Re: Future A70 owner? frustrated by price and availability

I preordered from amazon.
price was $277. Three days later they shipped.

Price was about same as other sites, until i saw they were charging $15-$25 for shipping at the other sites while amazon shipping was free.

I just stick with amazon, direct from amazon, usually can't go wrong.

I have to agree with their analysis, for the price point it really can't be beat.
