1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    "It's a dog with fleas," claimed one reseller. "Demand is very poor".

    Another said customers had trialled it but came back unimpressed. "It's too expensive and not fit for purpose in the enterprise space ... it's a tethering device so has to be carried with a BlackBerry."

    Sources estimate that up to 500,000 PlayBooks have yet to find a home. RIM has already cut sales forecasts for the year.


    For my uses, a tablet couldn't really replace the Windows 7/Joli OS UMPC I currently use for my mobile and out-and-about computing needs.
