sniff. Very sad. Poor little open sauce afraid of getting caught out using someone else's recipe?
I'm an Apply kinda a guy (but one that doesn't get first gen stuff - I'm waiting for iPad 2 and iPhone 5 before jumping in that area). But heck, the Courier looked freakin awesome. If it had come out actually working like the demo I would have bought one in a snap - even a first gen version.
Silly silly boys. Would have been a game changer. (Still) makes everything to date (incl Apple) look terribly stale.
What about the funkin stinkin buses?
The lobbyists of certain "special interest" groups* will shoot this one down in short order. All because said special interest groups purpose in life is about making life happier, easier etc of the users, and why would you mess with that right?
* aka Google
Apple dont sell mp3s.
So each of the 20k employees lined up and got their 1k cash handed to them off the 20m pile just inside the vault they have at Google? Then feared for their lives on the way home, chauffeured in the Google buses?
Just a small laptop?
Just a *slow* laptop surely. I bought one hoping it was just a small laptop for occasional use. Instead I encountered a turgid mess. I had low expectations too. Pointless. I quickly got rid of it.
Some of there monitors are nice though
It's a shame someone else doesn't sell them for them though - my Dell buying experiences have been poster children for "how to turn a simple purchasing pricess into a horror show".
...the spectular list of crashes is less than the ones I get frequently on 3.6.10
It's just Microsoft showing that Linux can be pwned too.
Or it's just to provide me with entertainment as the Freetards jump to a desperately-trying-to-be sensible-yet-still-frothing defense of their loved OS.
For that I thank you Microsoft.
You have to use a keyboard? How old school, and not in a cool way. I'll give a week before people are over it.....
Come on, where are the hookups with Android phones etc ala AppleTV and and iOS.
And I'll also throw in a 'how much?' 'cause I want be be popular like all you other kids.
is the poor little linux boy getting upset because someone is getting a taste of the same medicine every other OS gets when a fault is found.....
Be careful getting off your high horse - it's a long way down.
...they have already started tagging all known 'street' webcams and provided tunnelled links to the feed. Of course they'll tell the owners of the webcams they're doing this.
Of course they will......
"The real story is simply that some people are too stupid to own a smartphone."
Yes, all the stupid sheeple should just get iPhones right? and leave smart people to the 'smart' Android.
Actually I'm totally happy if that's the case. It means if I ever see someone with an Android phone I'll just avoid them - as they obviously have an overinflated sense of smartness, which as we all know is long hand for fuckwit, or something....
(I own neither an iPhone or Android owner - just a proud oldskool "it's just a phone FFS" owner)
Who are more upset here?
The fanbois, or the anti-Apple crew?
If only the world was powered by righteous indignation and froth and spittle from the mouth, then we'd never have an energy crisis again.
It was the NY Times amongst others thank you. My pr0n site have never let me down......;)
Good tip on disabling that interweb thingy - thanks. It reminds me it was how I got an ancient version of Photoshop Elements running once (it was hanging on startup going looking for updates).
Safari 5 saved my skin last night when Firefox decided to get in a loop of crashing on start (with attendent crash reporter) and studiously attempt to restore those same webpages that caused it to crash in the first place.
Indeed having two browsers is the best course of action. As always some pages work on one and not the other, and vice versa.
Chrome? Woudn't even think about it. Those Google people make it (shiver). They've already got some of my WiFi packets after all!
Poor little freetards
Oh Webby, where have you been?
We thought something awful had happened to you, but I see you're still around and full of the old venom.
Notice I said 'old' venom. G3s? G4s? Powerbooks? History. Surely you can spout about the screens on the 27" iMacs or something, or the DOA ones. You know - current issues.
But perhaps you got out of the Apple supporting game for your local school boards so long ago that you've only your old bitterness to regurgitate back up and froth about. Yum.
Anyway, don't stop. You're the best.
Microsoft are arse, but anything that can wipe a bit of smug off a open sourcerers face is just fine my me.
People were bitching that the iPhone OS didn't have multitasking, and now that it does, the bitching hasn't stopped - just changed. I fear the OS will never make you happy. Best go back to your Windows 1.0 and Palm Pre.
Someone said this re the iAds feature:
"I think he just sold a million more Androids with that line."
How naive can you get. Android is produced by the biggest advertiser in the world (that would be Google). Why do you think Google did it? Fun? (Pssst, it's advertising stupid).
Can't wait for me to get her an iPad (she's so disinterested in Computers in general she'd never even consider buying one for herself). I bought her a Netbook. It's stuck in a cupboard somewhere. Why? It takes so long to boot, so long to get through all the security/virus updates that she wants to throw it out the window in frustration. All this to check her email, facebook, surf the web etc. My iPod Touch? Too small. iPad? Perfect size, and instant on. Done deal.
But it would have been nice to have a cam for Skyping.
I still just don't understand why people keep trying to think it's more than a media consumption device. It must be because they WANT it to be some magical net/note/laptop slaying device, and they're just disappointed/bitter it's not.
I'll call you a sceptic.
When in Rome....
What he said
Also, is it just me, or does the Win 7 Mobile interface (and latest Zune) look quite...well...fresh? I'm a typography fan and like what they've done.
The Apple iPhone OS is frankly looking a little dated....
Probably the same reasons people install Redmond crapware on their Windows machines?
Some (actually alot) people just want to do some 'work', not fuck about with the 'free as in free speech, not free as in free beer' alternatives. You know, the 9-5ers who 'work'. Not tweakers and freedom fighters.
(why is there no 'penguin with L on forehead' icon?)
"Meanwhile 36,000 Tiger-fanciers are running Firefox 3.6, which is Mozilla’s current iteration of its popular browser."
I'm one of only 36,000? That makes me feel special.
