i heard it can go up stairs by itself

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 15:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

From that engadget post:

9:42AM Okay! We're in our seats and there's some Dylan playing on the sound system!

9:11AM Overall the mood is really jovial right now. It's basically a party in the U.S.A.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

I can use my chip & sig card over here, I don't think it's been rejected in france the uk italy spain, though I mostly use my french chip + pin card anyway. you can get a chip + pin card from usaa but it doesn't have 0% foreign exchange fees.

droit au butt (Euler), Wednesday, 22 October 2014 08:23 (15 hours ago) Permalink

You can use the card in chip and pin countries but the chip is useless afaict. You have to explain you are from a steampunk country and you will need to sign and then they run it like an old card.

Sometimes the card reader is broken though

When that happens I take out my checkbook and write them a check

nah I mean use it in metro stations to buy tickets etc. I've never had trouble with any type of card when I give it to a ~person~.

though yeah I usually use my hi tek french card. my bank here has gotten ridic though; to use it to make internet purchases I had to
a) request internet purchasing, and get a contract by post for it a week later that I had to sign and return
b) after sending it back, got sent a few days later, again by post, a security code, that let me log onto the web portal & request my card of secret codes
c) got sent the card of secret codes a few days later, again by post; then I could log further onto the web portal & enable internet purchasing
now when I use it to buy stuff I get sent to a "3d verification site" where I can either use a secret code from my card of codes, or request an sms secret code

it's really something

I like visiting canada and kind of looking downward when I get my card out and say "I'm.... american" and they sign and get me a pen

⌘-B (mh), Wednesday, 22 October 2014 14:40 (9 hours ago) Permalink

what advantage does chip and sig have over just sig?

also what is the two pins thing? i have one pin and its the same whether i'm at the 'ole in the wall getting out my dickvandollars or i'm authorising a payment for my blood sossidge with a merchant. where does the second pin come into it?

I have a US Chip and Sig Card and the chip works just fine, it just forces the machine to do a signature transaction, completely useless but no swipe required. The only place I'e ever had a problem was germany where the don't particularly like cards anyway, really hate foreign cards, so foreign cards that don't obey the rules are an absolute no no.
