"Perhaps I just hate everyone.."
"Nothing wrong with that."
Exactly. It's also the only sure way to avoid being a racist.
Jack White and Dave Grohl have to make the list.
Re: People are keeping them for three years?
Well, everyone did say that tablets will take over from PCs and laptops. Looks like they've taken on the refresh cycle already. As with PCs and laptops, "It's a half mm thinner" is not a good enough reason to buy the new model.
Re: I think they got the name wrong...
"lack of control over formatting"
Isn't that Word's job?
Can you imagine how even more ridiculous people will look running around taking photos with a 12.9" iPad?
@AC just above this Re: 6 GB free
Buzzword told you not to tell them that.
GUI - You type 'abc' in the search box at the top right of the window.
"Doesn't matter how ridiculous your procedures are, as long as they're followed to the letter you're OK"
Congratulations. You've just summarized ISO 900x
Re: Sharing the load
Except that your premise ignores the whole 'Impossible Girl' premise where Clara has already shown that she can make impossible decisions and take huge risks.
Re: Orient Express?
Why not? If Spitfires can fly in space, why not Concordes?
Re: If you can't say anything nice
Hell, if you give Tesla a bad review, you could be sued.
Then again, I probably shouldn't remind Apple of that option.
Re: particularly acute for the long-suffering women of the western world?
My thought, when I see that, is 'Lucky phone'
Re: "You can have Light, Strong or Cheap. Pick two."
Doesn't apply to iPhone. It's light, it's not strong, and it's definitely not cheap.
Re: Pity they didn't get this out last year.
"Less likely to get bent?"
Funny you should mention that:
You're telling me that a new version of iOS is causing battery life and reception issues?
Wow, that's never happened before.
Re: She's already released a sex tape.
Also why you still dial a phone.
Re: Nvidea, did you also manage to explain
Yeah, I used to be like that. I was all "Their earthquake special was just an excuse to show Kari Byron being jiggled on an earthquake simulation table." Then I remembered seeing Kari Byron being jiggled on an earthquake table, and I forgot what I was thi
Re: Mr Fry
My mother in law has bipolar disorder and she doesn't have an iPhone.
Re: SpaceX's cheaper Dragon capsule has room for seven
...and not a cupholder in sight, either.
iPads are 4:3
Re: No thanks
And yet, it's posted in the comments section of an article about an announced and not yet delivered product taking over the market.
I for one
...don't want to encounter one of these "nature walks" they speak of...
Re: I guess that
I already have a watch.
1994 Timex Expedition. I think it was $49.95 Canadian
So now that Tim has informed the iPublic what size phone screen they want, will there be a rash of official retractions from all of the fanboys ridiculing 'huge' phones from other vendors?
Re: A car show without prototypes.
And let's face it, if Samsung had shown off a new device that doesn't look a lot different than what others have on the market already and refused to give important details like battery life and release date, the iCrowd would be all over them for having a 'me too' device.
Re: Perfectly put.
Many watches have had sapphire crystals since the 1960s and they still get scratched.
Re: With a 5.5" screen -
You could still point out that the company can buy you a nice Android for a lot less than an iPhone.
Re: And surely the whole point is it looks rather like a watch, NOT like a futuristic gizmo?
You've got that right. They went the exact opposite of futuristic. The plastic ones look like Swatches from the 1980's and the metal ones look like Bulovas from the 1970's
Re: It's all about the screen size
OK, you have multiple credit and debit cards in your wallet. So you have to add the extra step of pulling out the card you want to use.
Is your iPhone going to magically know which card you want to use and automatically send the code from that card, or are you going to have to unlock the phone, start up some app, choose which card you want to use, then bonk it.
I don't see any savings in time or energy.
"I don't have to carry my wallet." - I guess we're different then, I 'carry' my wallet with me all of the time, in my pocket, because it has other important things in it, like my driver's license. I'm not one of those people who has their phone in hand 24/7 though.
Re: We all moved to sharepoint.
Another interesting dichotomy. Apple's first generation is to 'showcase the idea' Anyone else's first generation is to rush out a me too product asap.
What was the software that popped up the error message "Shut 'er down, Earl. She's sucking mud"?
"After much pushing there was a sudden movement of the obstruction."
Seriously? You trying to make this too easy?
People who wait outside an Apple store for 18 days probably don't have workplaces.
Re: "Rabid Fans"?
"Bring on the red arrows, lemmings, see how much I care."
Hey look - it's one of those rabid Apple fans
Re: I just use...
I used to always give forgetful users "Blondemoment!"
My absolute favourite (From my absolute favourite author):
“It is known that there are an infinte number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.”
Re: Can it move furniture?
You've got a point there, and with Dyson's pricing scheme, this thing will probably cost the equivalent of 10 or 12 years of an immigrant's wages.
I'll bet that's fun to type on a touchscreen phone
...but might not be bad as a password...
Re: "Security questions" aren't for security, they're to reduce support costs
When I first started here, there was no minimum time and last five passwords remembered, so whenever someone got the 'change your password' notice, they just changed it five times, then changed it back to the original.
Celebs aren't usually very hard to find, even without technology.
Siri, what's this rectangular object with the shiny face that shows pretty pictures that I seem to have in my pocket?
Re: I built my own cable...
I don't know... Maybe should've used #00 arc welding cable, just to be safe
...or the 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
Re: If he was truly sorry ...
...after sitting through the 30 second Toyota ad before you can watch the video.
Those suckers will eat a pair of AA batteries in record time, judging by how fast the current ones go through them.
Re: Nothing to worry about here!
You want serious security, try P@$$word1
Re: Entering the US
We got some of them newfangled airports up here in Canada now, ya know? Some people can fly directly into here now.
Re: You sure has hell don't see Samsung supporting anything older then the Galaxy 4 now do you?
Actually, just got the OTA upgrade to KitKat on my S3
