Help us Webster!
The sheeple are taking over! Come, espouse wisdom and save us all!
Qwerty keyboards are fugly
Apart from the (very) latest Blackberry's, all Qwerty phones are friggin ugly. This one is right up there on the fugly scale. How long will companies spend polishing this turd of an idea. Use a slide out keyboard or anything, but not this ancient looking design. Everyone is running after RIM here, too scared to have a different design. As soon as RIM start having sliders, then you'll get the chasers copying. Nokia is just another chaser these days.
And why does the RIM Bold look like an iPhone with a keyboard? Now who's the chaser?
Thank you for your kind replies
I have no interest in security of any OS. Couldn't given a tuppence. I'm a blind and dumb user. So there. I merely get annoyed at self-righteousness, which is an ugly trait and should be beaten out of people. It is something many of the linux posters on "Non-linux bad security threads" seem to have in abundance.....
This is impossible
"...a small bank of dedicated Linux servers he manages. After falling victim to a hacking attack a few months back..."
Urr, am I missing something here? Linux? Hacked? Surely that is a contradiction in terms.
After all, all those forums posts claiming 'It wouldn't have happened if you'd used Linux (snigger)' can't be wrong can they?
You plainly know zero about HD. Zero.
My N95 can do this, your XXX can't, my N95 can do that, your YYY can't. Na na na na na.
Penguin, 'cause it's booooring
"( i have a blackjack now. It does everything i want and need ( including all the bluetooth stuff, file mounting etc ) its just a cramped little small screen.... and fussy keyboard. I pair it with a little nokia GPS receiver and run tomtom on it without problems."
It'll appear a day early to the US/UK, but will actually be 'on time' for the NZ release. I'll let you figure out why.
I almost didn't believe it was you until you STARTED using capitalised WORDS again. I now feel better.
Hmm, with regards to the explanation the 'sheeple' = 'sheep people'. Did you think you were so clever coming up with that it needed spelling out? I'm afraid we all above that type of show and tell here. We'll give you a pat on the head for the effort though.
"I thought it was MY cell phone when I bought it, but I guess not"
Thought, wrong, guess, correct.
Still the equivalent 'you'll see what I want you to see damn it' in the internet world (i.e. AOL) is a big FAIL, so hopefully one day things will be different in the mobile world.
If Google were serious about that spectrum they bidded on a while back, _then_ an 'open' platform would have been plausible.
@re: um. ....
"nearly everyone i know _wants_ an iphone - but none of them have got one yet"
Frankly this is still a win win for Apple. How would competitors feel if their consumers bought their product whilst secretly thinking "Jeez, I wish I had an iPhone instead". Prick some egos that would (and puff those of Apple)
What the hell...
...are Vogel and Mahoney doing? Trying to take down the prophet leader of the company they own shares in? How do you spell idiots again? Oh yes: Idiots.
I hope they succeed and see their shares tank.
How very noble of you. Clap Clap.
Where is the penguin icon with devil horns eh? Or can linux do no wrong? 'tards
Somebody send for the Doctor
If Webster doesn't post a "told you so" rant then he must be ill. We should all be concerned for his health don't you think?
Sending our love Webby
Safari are picking on Firefox now? Now the 'tards will really get in a lather.
If this makes the interweb experience better for us paytards then I'm all for it. For those 3 people in the world who download more than 250gb a month legitimately I'm sorry you are affected.
For the rest of you Freetards, boo bloody hoo. Get a life rather than substituting penis measurement with how much bandwidth you can hog.
@[But won't their TVs be off already?]
Sniff! Three terrestrial channels! THREE! We have four thank you very much, five if you can pick up Prime.
Even Paris know this!
It's OK, you can still whine
Golly, with all this inclusion of 3G, GPS, better battery time, better price, what will all the whiners whine about?
Ah, but it's OK, as Apple caters to the whiners just like it does to all market segments. There is still no copy and paste, MMS, video recording.
You must be a Freetard
So used to getting your OS's for free*, you baulk at the idea that one, even an upgrade, might cost actual money....
Let the whining begin.
* via your saddo torrents
The Freetards are laughing at you
Like modern day Robin Hoods they steal from the rich (the paytards) to give to the poor (the morally bankrupt).
Sense is prevailing at last. I mean those Freetards were really ruining the interweb for the rest of us paytards you know.
@AC 'It was not because her bag was not on the plane'
> "Whilst I can not say why I know this it is documented on the Internet."
Ah, therefore it must be true.
Let us all knee at the alter of truth the internet is and pray
Paris, as even she isn't this stupid
@has to be said
hahaha - excellent.
Wow, you could be a comedian. No really.
There is only one word for your little piece:
The article also states the USB option has been chosen to allow other players to connect. So it's not just iPods. Still, AirNZ aren't going to key their advertising on Zune connectivity are they.....
Ah Mr Phreaky - you're back!
Hmm, I'm going to try and be logical here Webby (hence the icon). May I call you Webby?
If I've remembered correctly you've dealt with many thousands of Apples (say 15000?) in your school district. This means it's 15000 times more likely that you've encounted a problem, than Average Joe Appletard (with exposure to say just one Apple).
This surely makes sense to you yes? This is why you are so misunderstood. This overexposure to Appletardness has clearly made you mad as a hatter.
A warning people, if you feel you're getting to much Apple exposure, stop and think, before you get Phreaky....
Contractors exist for a reason
When the sh*t hits the fan, it lands on the contractors. Banks like to have 15% contractors (although many have much more which they don't like), so that when times are bad they can instantly save 15% by chopping them (or the like).
If they were 100% permies they couldn't do this without all sorts of strife.
And thats why contractors get paid more, as it's a 'risky' job.
Apart from all the Freetards downloading so much sh*t (just because they can) that they never have time to watch or listen to, does anyone have an genuine/legal reasons to use up 250GB a month? (and I mean for home use)
And not just for some pie in the sky future application. I mean now.
No didn't think so.
250gb? You are a ....
Anyone who downloads more than 250GB a month is a Tw@, or a Freetard or both.
Here's a 2 tuner PVR - now stop you're B*tchin
Oh no, but wait, it's around 500 pounds so you 'I don't get out of bed for anything more than the price of a RyanAir ticket to Alicante' crowd can start your b*tchin again.
Where IS Webster?
If Webster doesn't comment on this article then it can only mean he's died. If this is the case, then why didn't I get an invite to the memorial service?
Hey AC, um, I don't think headphones are meant to sound good to people other that those wearing them. So the fact they sound tinny to you is well, tough. Go bitch about the weather or something instead - you'll get more sympathy.
I own an all-image-no-substance-ooh-its-shiny-it-must-be-good computer. Whilst I have mass, I'm not retarded. Maybe I'm an exception? Maybe not. Maybe I'm just a happy simple retard.
Fugly. Just Fugly
Even if the MacBook Air didn't exist (in order to draw comparisons) that thing is fugly. Like some sweet laptop from the nineties, but on a diet and brought into the future. Wow. Neat. Cool.
Icon indicates what should happen to the designers.
I've always thought...
...Portishead would do a great Bond Theme.
Bravo Mr Watts. Bravo. However you missed out the word 'Freetard'.
Oh and Webster, can you come up with some new material please? The stuff you copy and paste from your 'Down with Apple' file each and every post is...yawn. What was I saying? Oh yeah. When you keep repeating the same old sh*t, people start to ignore it as it's boring.
And I for one do not want to have to start ignoring you. I love you Ralph Nader!
I've done it, I've done it!
I've figured out who Mr Webster Phreaky really is. It's now so obvious it hurts.
Take a bow, Mr Ralph Nader
Thank you Mr Nader for turning your activist attention on all things electronic. Apple and WD were getting away with MURDER for YEARS before you turned up.
Pah, I'm sick of this attitude. You're all too used to 'free' mobiles and 1 pound flights to Alicante. You get all indignant that you have to PAY for something. Freetard.
Out here in the bottom of the world, a PS3+PlayTV will be a very competitive HD DVR (let alone BluRay/DVD player or games console). In fact it'll be one of the few DVRs in the WORLD to record terrestrial Freeview HD (i.e. mpeg4) broadcasts. Maybe for you stone-agers in the UK this feature is overkill, but here it's a bargain.
In NZ too
Telecom (the NZ version of BT) has the same Yahoo disease, which they introduced last year to much fail (I think their email was out for a week? Good migration that one). They too have just implemented the same thing here. Disgusting process.
The new super 'anti-spam' is REAL clever as well. I sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org*. The reply from email@example.com (with RE: <my original subject>) got sent to the spam folder however. WTF? Yeah REAL fkn clever.
* joe has had his identify change in order to protect his identity.
No Linux Freetards?
I might have missed it but usually there's some comment along the lines of 'gee if you had linux you wouldn't have these problems, snigger'. Come on people - I'm disappointed.
And Webster, Webster, whats wrong? I saw on the 'apple is best brand' article you flamed a guy for reading it wrong, but didn't take the opportunity to bag EVIL Apple. Get well soon!
BTW, I just love the term 'Freetard' and how it's made some of you squirm and get all indignant. Hilarious flame bait.
Go Web...sta, Go Web...sta
If Master Phreaky doesn't LAY down the LAW on this one I'll eat my Apple.
Wow. Are we reduced to bragging about 3G inadequacies in public now. 'My 3G is bigger than yours, snigger'. Ah for the innocent days when it was just about penis length.
Oh, and I'd be sad if Webster didn't chip in with something about the EVIL Apple empire now starting to INFECT other OSs.
Come on Mr Phreaky. You can't let this one slip by you surely?
As I understand it Apple are allowing 'free' apps to be posted on iTunes (but they still have to go through certification). I'm not sure if this means you don't have to pay the $99 to develop said freeware however. To be honest though quibbling about $99 is childish. If you write freeware, does this mean you should have been given the computer you wrote it on free? No. If you can buy a computer to write your freeware on, you can pay $99 as well. Stop snivelling.
Amusing bit about being surprised about 'European' operators taking Apples deal. Are you implying that you weren't surprised American operators took it? Superiority complex?
As for the bitter comment about Apple gouging the punter with their profit share, uh, are you just upset Apple a) has a cut, or b) that the operator isn't taking 100%. You think the monthly charge would be X% less if Apple didn't take their cut? Ha haha.
You were quite easy on the usage of CAPITALs there Webster. Are you feeling OK?
Please keep up your posts, no matter how tenuous the link to the original article. It's amusing imagining some zealot frothing at the mouth over the 'POS' Apple.
