A load of kidding around anyway ?
I read somewhere that gender bias means few women study computing.
What is worse is that the whole school system is Neanderthal biased.
If parents and teachers can't code so what hope is there for the kids if we rely on clubs for the bare essentials?
Re: Phones with a 7"+ screen???
"I can see a larger screen being more useful"
People are too afraid of being called a black sheep. When the white phablet arrives sheepies will rejoice.
re - willingness to use a whopping big phone is an Asian thing not seen elsewhere.
There are exceptions to the self conscious sheepish westerners who are slaves to emotional marketing.
We seem far too used to being told what to do.
Re: An accountancy error?
Well, you can easily test a battery for quality. Degradation in any batch will be fairly linear.
An accountancy error?
At £60+ a pop maybe there was an accountants reliability calculation error?
Apples rather over-captive clientel certainly did not get a proper enough go before the lucrative noose is tightened.
Holding it wrong
If you don't let everyone see the logo when making a phone call you really don't deserve to own an iPhone.
Follow them rules, not the dropped calls Troopers.
An untaxing offering
Obviously B & N needed to offer something to the public that does not tax away all its profits.
This does the trick for those who read, blog and Facebook gossip. People want an open marketplace, one that B & N failed at owning. There is now really only one 'owning everything' sole trader left stuck in that dark closet.
Microsoft is moving their HQ and 1800 jobs to Munich.
Work it out folks.
"Haters can hate on Apple all they want"
So why do fanboys insist on being a remote Island unto itself.
Is George Bush now president ?
Same as a PC
Because it is a PC !
So use simple wipe software, like a PC.
This is very old PC news dressed up as if it is something new.
China is searching every corner
And quite obviously, no round corner will be left unturned.
Full of bull bloat then?
IOS was OK when it simply had to play music in the iPod but now it seems just a big fat Willie Wurst.
The higher crash rate certainly seems to show it is more bloated than the rest.
Crash bang Oops !
Don't be a stupid early adopter, this means that the resulting mix of 32 bit and 64 bit apps will both bloat memory and crash more too !
Sp, little to no gain and lots of pain
Dell + Microsoft = cozy cartel
So, what on earth was the point of the " A quick look at the Dell UK and US websites "?
We know Dells dally with Linux was a charade where even finding the Linux devices on the web site was a battle and a half.
Waving their flag, Dell serves Microsoft and Microsoft serves Dell.
Atom did great back in the Netbook Boom days.
But obviously Boom and Bust was actually part of that 'cripple them' plan.
Why sell low cost when people can pay really good money and also get to say 'Core' ?
WebGL is coming to Safari in IOS 8
... well sort of.
It is restricted so in theory only a subset of Open GL web sites will work.
I'm assuming that covers Nokia Here whi might just reinstate their web app ?
confused = FUD.
Its getting that way, more and more FUD stuff as opposed to clear info with clear fixes.
That is if there was any real problem in the first place !
and if you think that means people like AVG , Avira etc etc you are well mistaken.
I imagine it makes for lucrative consulting though Accuvant did tend tend to work for the high bidder before joining .
re WIndows Phone
er Accuvant have their Microsoft SDL Pro Network membership to think of !
But who got there first, China or the US ?
The US bans a massive range of Chinese made goods.
That Symantec security hole was interesting as they were seemingly already banned in China.
So who is iving in the past, the US banning Chinese tech for made up security concerns, or China banning US NSA ware ?
As to Russia, well Putin pulled the walls right back up, he is just Nixon except for being here to stay.
Who jumped first ?
The US is happy buying cheap and selling expensive to the world, they draw the line at others using China to sell cheap to US consumers/businesses.
Mobile not Desktop - I dont use mobile !
Using desktop mode because my screen is not a low res device and because Desktop Mode is not banned like Safari I doubt my browsing counts.
Likely Safari iPad counts as mobile too cos on that users have to be thankful for what they get.
Tax cuts next election then?
A 600% hike in mobile spectrum fees will help Cameron there.
Taxing the masses indirectly is a very good way to reduce the top rate of tax.
Over supply ?
By all accounts sapphire prices have dropped of recent.
Obviously the sapphire ones will be marked up another $100 ++++
Any shortage, however contrived comes in very very hand
err it does the crashing on ypour behalf.
Try using multi tabs with the darn things reloading on you !
This makes the iPad useless much of the time.
We know full well IOS 7 needed 2GB to do any semblence of multi-tasking without KILL.
Nothing to see.
Apple stuff is all about the US corporation monopoly.
They want you roubles, not your country.
Yes, that Y300 is essentially close to the iPhone 5/5s/5c/ or Galaxy Ace.
Apple realise people can make do with low resolution small phones so that is what they give.
Not everyone wants or even needs those high end high resolution Note type phablets.
Security risk will create need for removal.
Burglars will love these, using them to find when you are not at home.
Obviously when the security risk becomes too large its another £10 billion we have to pay to reverse the catastrophe.
Also, we are likely need another new power station just to run the damn things !
Completely pointless !
A couple of MB of fixes for versions X is fine every now and again.
But I just refuse to start again, and again, and again, and again........................
The idiots really don't want you to have it!
Security services at work here...
Because of it the web is as good as dead guys.
Any half wit could get round the blockade so they should be getting the ISP to block said web sites, not Google !
And in consulation with Apple
Obviously so are Apple. Apple is embedding Bing even further into OS/X and IOS so if the old cartel can get away with it, expect iMessage to reciprocate on Windows.
The Fad Pad
It got that name at birth.
As long as people like me shout its name people will keep buying it.
Filofax filofax filofax.
SO what percentage are books, what are music downloads and most important of all, what is the in-app purchase percentage of actual app buys?
Lack of info suggests in-app buys earn Loadsa Dosh from a few suckers.
Sad old ARM ticked the 'No Publicity Box'
...yes, you become a forgotten minion when you sign on the dotted line with US corporates.
Saying that, they would get attacked some other way, maybe with anti-dumping legislation if they competed head one.
And Apple get the green light whereever sold
Obviously, regimes, inlcuding the one that protects the US need to have some control over their population.
Secret societies do not exist for our benefit, so at times it can be said to be for our benefit too.
Must be in the iWatch.
I imagine so but importantly for Imagination, they need to sell elsewhere as Apple now seem to be their life support machine.
Working for Apple is sometimes like ticking a No Publicity Box.
As I said lobbyists are somehow sweetening the deal NetWorkAdmin.
The rotten fruit want us all as prunes.
Lobbyists, lobbyists lobbbbb eeeeeee iiiiiists!
Well who else is playing games?
Amazon is a bit of a jungle
the danger with Amazon app store is even worse than the Apple one.
Whilst Apple tricks you into getting your credit card details Amazon already has them !
Are buyers as thick as pigshit?
Well, they must be stupid enough to think that is the total price. Otherwise, why would we keep getting this 'for dummies only' headline every July?
iPhones left at home?
Well we are indeed left to wonder about that low 'occupancy' rate of 1.
'Canned' is the word
Yes, I really do wonder how many days a week Boris actually gets out of bed. Did he write that line, maybe so looking rushed in being so bad.
Talking of laziness, he did look less unkempt the other day, so he does rise pre-lunchtime on occasion.
'Old', are you are having a laugh, he's having a laugh.
September 2012 is less than 2 years ago,
If they trusted them at all, would they have then given a proper 2 year warranty like quality competitors?
The sorry tale of protctionism..
extends to keeping out Linux and x86 alternatives.
Remember, Microsoft once supported Mips in Windows NT.
Obviously that was protectionism too. I bet x86 manufacturers Intel mainly had a big stick out on that one.
And even now ARM, the mips like chip designer is getting protectionist strategies shoved down their throats. The smaller partners are certainly being encouraged to move to Intel.
Out of tune in the gloom.
Yes, Google are as bad as Cupertino drinking to our wealth misfortune, Starbucks like.
Tax them and penalise them double!
it is all about the Spam
Reading it I can really see why.
Rather than a random number, these numbers pre-determine iDevices.
Of course a pre-determinied number in future wll be for that increasing iAd iSpam.
I'd suggest you turn off bluetooth and Wifi while you can.
Likely any on/off user control you currently have is just short term. Greed matters with Apple.
"Indie music labels say today's tech giants are behaving more badly than the old record industry "
I heard that the big labels rip off their artists and if the artists don't go with the big labels, Apple the chooses to rip them off even more !
So with a catch 22, is someone going to publish what these cartel giants pay?
were Apple compliant then?
It makes you think.
Only the garbage available.
It has always been 'garbage in garbage out' with Windows.
But, by hook or by crook, it was all we had.
Surely nothing has really changed with Windows.
'Inaccurate' Google-friendly media"
Has the world has suddenly gone bonkers?
It is worth framing that one.
