Re: Mr Fry
My mother in law has bipolar disorder and she doesn't have an iPhone.

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
The 5c didn't get a good reception in the Apple
paid focused tech press either
Re: er, specs?
Might want to remove some apps from that phone. My non-crappy S3 wakes up and opens apps just fine.
Re: Babcock the Canuck
Hockey played on grass = 'field hockey'
Hockey played in a gymnasium = 'floor hockey' or 'ball hockey'
Hockey played on ice = 'hockey'
And the only reason for the winter sport/summer sport thing is lacrosse was originally Canada's national sport dating back to the original settlements, but hockey has taken over, so the politically correct way to handle it is to slowly phase out lacrosse by declaring them co-national sports for a while, until lacrosse can be quietly retired.
Re: The summer heat brings them out...
"the Trashcan icon changes to an Eject icon when you start dragging. So I call bullshit there."
It does on OS-X, yes. It didn't on previous versions of Mac OS
Re: The summer heat brings them out...
I did tech support in a prepress department back in the days of the beige Macs. One day, I noticed out of the corner of my eye, one of the women who had worked there for a long time and was quite experienced with the Macs poking a straightened-out paper clip into the emergency floppy eject hole. I wandered over and said, "Disk stuck?" She answered, "No, everything's working fine."
After some investigation, I found out that she had been using a paper clip to eject the floppies from Macs ever since she'd started, years before. I remember the wonder on her face when I demonstrated dragging the disk icon to the trash, and the disk popped out with the little motorized whine.
Re: Turn off the computer, then turn it on again...
It doesn't matter how computer literate they are either. If they actually sort of know how to use the thing, then they'll inevitably call me and say their computer popped up an error.
What did the error message say? "I don't know, I just closed it."
Re: The iwacth is going to be sooooo expensive!
An Apple product? Expensive?
Thanks for the news flash.
Knowing the wannabe Nostradamus intellectuals, I'm sure if you asked a few of them, they could sufficiently twist around something he reportedly said to mean that Apple was going to invent the wristwatch.
Re: school days
No, even in America, 'could of' is still wrong. At least for now.
Re: "Is she important to humanity?" "Are you?"
Possibly, possibly not, but I'll bet Jason isn't using his celebrity status to scam your government out of your tax dollars.
What about the pentathorpe? Sounds much better than 'asterisk'
Mr. Fusion to the rescue
Re: I'm so tempted...
HOW DADDY IS DOING
Re: More statistics please
Yep. My cheap tablet is running JB 4.2 and I highly doubt it'll ever see an upgrade. Don't really care though - it works fine and runs everything I want it to run.
All I can say is it's good to see that Canada Post isn't the only post office in the world that seems to go out of their way to make things as difficult as possible.
Re: It wouldn't matter what you tell 'em...
I think it's universal. I'd be willing to bet cops get a lot of "My neighbor's dog keeps crapping on my lawn. Can you do anything about it?"
The widgets that Android copied from OS X, those widgets?
Yes, the widgets that Apple copied from Konfabulator. Those widgets.
Just doing my part to torpedo the usual "Apple invented everything" rhetoric.
