Review: HTC One

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Battery power

Am I the only one that would gladly sacrifice some of this thinness with more battery power?

It really irks me that my current HTC Sensation would go down a notch on its battery icon before lunch, after an overnight charge? Why do the manifacturers always churn out these paper thin machines with lots power gobbing features, and a flimsy battery?

ICANN under fire as Verisign warns of rushed domain-name expansion

Corporate greed at its best

Here goes the corporate greed again; changing something that works well with something that will make them more money.

why so many apple machines listed?

The author skipped a large number of machines and just highlighted a lot of apple products, for some reason.

Last remaining reason to order an iPhone 5 disappears

Turgut Kalfaoglu

iphone users perceived as novices

I regard iphone/ipad users as noobs - that is, people with too much money, too little knowledge.

I assume the majority of the world feels the same way?

Samsung's appeal gaffe keeps Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned in US

Turgut Kalfaoglu

As Sneaky as Apple

Apple has gone sour after their leader died.

Here is the plot:

1) Follow what opensource is doing,

2) Patent all their work quickly,

3) Sue them while implementing their work.

They are doing this to Android. Hence, we do not buy Apple anymore.

Mozilla dumps iOS, pulls Firefox Home from iTunes Store

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Glad to hear Mozilla distancing itself from the evil empire

I no longer have any respect for Apple after the frivilous lawsuits. Therefore, I'm glad Mozilla is moving away from them.

Pirate Bay founder arrested in Cambodia

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Swedish laws are weird -- a court can decide that you cannot appeal against it?

A court can decide that the presumed guilty cannot appeal against its decision? What arrogance!

Ho ho ho! Apple's Samsung ban bid pushed back to Christmas

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Will never buy Apple again

After seeing their abuse of the patent system and their mud slinging in courts -- not to mention their starving of Chinese workers while they make billions, I refuse to buy any more Apple products.

Apple demands Samsung flogged for 'unethical' court doc leak

Turgut Kalfaoglu
FAIL

AS GREEDY AS APPLE

Nice tactic -- first patent everything you can, from scrollable bars that others had invented ages ago, to rectangles on the screen, and then prevent anyone else from producing better products at far cheaper prices!

Won't ever be buying apple again.

Did your iPhone 'just stop working' - or did you drop it in your BEER?

Turgut Kalfaoglu

More ridiculous patents?

Don't the judges realise what they are doing? That this company is patenting every little thing?

What will happen when Apple patents judge's hammer? How will the judges pass judgement then??

Btw, Both 10" and 7" models (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2) are GREAT machines.. Highly recommended..

Apple lands slide-to-unlock patent blow on Motorola

Turgut Kalfaoglu

ridiculous patents, dumb courts

Totally ridiculous to patent something like swiping.

I'm just glad that no baker so far patented "cutting bread with a knife" action :(

In the mean time, I'll work on my new patent application entitled "fart to unlock."

Leaked Nokia WinMobes ready for midrange scrum

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Wrong answer to the problem

Trouble was never the platform for Nokia. So I fail to see how going to an inferior operating system will help solve the managerial issues at Nokia and boost revenues.

Apple blocks sale of Samsung's Android fondleslab across EU

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Apple - as greedy as Microsoft?

Do companies get greedy and unfair when they get wealthy?

Why do they have to kill any competition -- at the expense of users who are deprived of better products.

MacBook batteries susceptible to hack attacks

Turgut Kalfaoglu

very clever hack!

That's a very clever hack. Perhaps it just shows that we are overly computerized now. A battery with firmware that's remotely upgradable?

Microsoft surprises Street with double-digit growth

Turgut Kalfaoglu

One is born every day

A sucker is born every day and they will continue to buy microsoft products - or rather, have no choice in the matter because the PC they buy, will come with it.

Microsoft kills Windows Vista SP1 support

Turgut Kalfaoglu
Linux

Best upgrade

The best upgrade you can do right now is to Linux.. My favorite is Fedora. Install it and feel the intelligence.. Automatically recognises hardware, software runs faster, machine does not heat up, etc.

Microsoft bags two more Android patent deals

Turgut Kalfaoglu

ridiculous claims

Most of the companies fall to this bullying and blackmailing.

It's a shame and explains why Microsoft is so big despite its products.

Apple will 'own games industry'

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Games and apple

Well, while I owned an iphone 3g, I bought a total of zero games

When I switched to my android, I bought about a dozen.

So, in ten years, I can falsely predict that Android will own the games world!

Prepping the great Windows 7 migration

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Upgrading to Windows XP

Recently I trashed my Windows 7 Virtualbox in favor of Windows XP.

Not only everything works faster, but also programs that deal with the hardware, actually work.

What do I run my Virtualbox under? Fedora Linux.

Oracle kills Sun.com after starvation diet

Very sad to see Sun go.. It has been a great company, too bad it got taken over by a DBMS company.

HP lays cuckoo egg in Microsoft nest

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Bundling should be illegal

Forcing people to buy software when they buy a computer should be illegal.

I would hate to spend 50-100 dollars on a new PC, so that Microsoft can have its ransom.

He has been a visionary that propelled the industry forward.

I wish him full recovery soon.

Will Windows on ARM sink Windows Phone 7?

Turgut Kalfaoglu

sluggish vulnerable windows vs. world

The sluggish vulnerable windows does not stand a chance against android and iphone OS.

They have been trying it for years, and if it wasn't for their forced allies, there would be no windows phone/pda at all in the market.

$1,000 reward offered for stolen cancer research laptop

Turgut Kalfaoglu

1000 dollars for a nice laptop?

Isn't 1000 dollars a low figure for a such laptop?

Assuming that the data is worth something too, I'd say they don't stand a chance of recovery until they add another zero.

Interview: Jailbroken iPhones a vector rather than a vulnerability

Turgut Kalfaoglu

security(Jailbroken iphone) > security(windows)

After many years in the sector, I still believe the security of a jailbroken iphone is still better than what Windows offers. Therefore, it's Apple FUD when they claim jailbroken phones are a liability.

Jobs drops hint on Google open video codec

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Silly bickering

Of course if a compression method is better, it will run slower! Duh!

Did he have to study for 3 years to come up with that?

The thing that google is planning on, is the constant increase of our CPU power..

So, soon what appears sluggish today will be lightning fast -- except if you still use Windows, of coıurse :)

Iranian rocket puts satellite into orbit

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Obama just like the former?

I guess it is true - that big companies run USA, and not the president, as Obama sounds just like any other president that came about.

Iran's sattelite "unfortunate?" Shouldn't he have had the courage to congratulate on this technological achivement instead?

Ubuntu's Shuttleworth praises Windows 7, welcomes fight

Turgut Kalfaoglu

Windows succeeds because

The only reason why windows is used so much is because it comes bundled with the machine people buy. Most are unable to reformat and upgrade to Ubuntu or Fedora, or whatever..
