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.
Have you sold out Register ?
I do ask in that your real attacks and good satire have become few and far between
Nightmare on a fruity Elm Street.
It was already in the 10 Apple commandments.
Though shalt not write code for any other platform. This will make it more and more mandatory to have to write 2 very unique sets of code down the line.
Nothing has changed whatsoever.
it has always been about the Microsoft Apple cartel.
Those phoney wars will continue as it serves this purpose.
And DuckDuckGo is pretty much all of Bing. The complete lack on principals in this war means few tell you that.
"instead a premium product for high end devices"
Methinks you could go even more premium and use ARM.
Too late to do it now ARM, but you should have been charging more money more than Intel for your premium low energy chips!
'believe you should use the right device at all times'
= "............a right expensive device.............."
Numbers are king
The dumbed down lot outnumber the X factor dozens to one so obviously IOSification is where it is at.
he is low level..
Obviously a low level analyst does low level code and as such is a high level operator to me and you.
You gotta laugh cos they are both right in that description, just happens that the US one is propaganda marketing.
Cleaners are hip !
The good Shepard tending his flock is about to bring it to the market for the unthinking masses.
We are in a reverse word where the cleaners are now the trend setters.
Getting away with it!
Obviously the rich bitches are well versed in getting the sue ball out.
Anyway, that is how bullying works.
However it is not called bullying in religious totalitarianism where honor killing is part genocide.
Not cars but the cap fits for public transport
I can see it now. 7.30am your car arrives from its pod, picks you up and drives you to work collecting maybe one other person doing that same exact route.
At 9.30 the cars forms a centipede like train of to head off to central points, ready for mass action.
A car at your hose/work place within 2 minutes of a whistle? The blocker in all of this is, even now, is the switch from oil to electricity. The grid system is simply not ready.
A load of balls
I'd suffer 2G Edge with 512MB, 3G up to 20GB and 4G for unlimited.
Who do they think people are, suckers?
Best to avoid Chrome really !
The bigger the corporation the more they want to monopolise you?
The OS is open so use it to your advantage, not Google's advantage.
Otherwise they will be a pseudo 100% monopoly of control.
Loads of dosh, loads of dosh.
Rockchip can't afford to turn them down can they ?
Now, if they can tie them all into dropping or maybe just pricing up ARM, well that would be one hell of a coup.
TO have ot not to have that is the question.
To have to to have not.
Remember, you get the chance to have your mail with an SD slot. With non SD phones, 'pay for storage, pay for data' Cloud storage too quickly becomes the solution.
Apple's S3 copy is about to launch...
with an S3 like big screen, S4 like '2 apps on screen at once' and S4 like NFC
They need to clear the decks/remove the real Samsung thing for their 'back to 2012' type launch come September.
Smart weaning !
As already said, this is what Intel are famous for.
Wean them early to later treat them all mean.
Saying that, they did come very unstuck with that expensive $300 Ultrabook Chipset.
They ain't patents....
The bigger companies are simply patenting everything that moves, and everything they is not intended to move!
With Corporate evil/greed, do you really expect them to co-operate?
When all is said and done, they are mainly doing a land grab, they ain't inventions as we once knew them.
the war against the consumer has now moved sideways.
So, beyond that truce this is the new angle in their all controlling money making scheme.
Cartels r US, says Apple. Likely they were heavily involved in that net neutrality breakup discussion.
With billions available, slowing poorer opposition down could well be lucrative
Screen too small?
Strange, the 11 to 12 " size is almost proven the preferred 'usable' size.
As sure as that Apple phablet, Apple will almost certainly have theirs arriving once 9" sales go downwards.
Check all water seals and cross lake Placid.
You have now arrived in Essex.
and the iMessageWall does not like outsiders. ...
so what about the webCam?
It is called choice.
This new regime will be wonderful for the likes of A T & T
that 2GB contract you pay for will impact so much on their ability to stream the $20 a month TV stream they supply you will be down to dial up speeds once again.
Result, A T & T double the cost of the 2GB to reduce congestion.
A win win for both A T & T and their streaming partner.
Crap on the user time?
Bad news? A secret agreement to cripple Android
I would not bet against it.
Well it just works ....properly
The cheaper one works on the web proper like.
You simply cannot mix them up.
Along the Siri way....
.. Apple has decided that exercise is best. Enjoy the walk.
but unlike Birmingham the people at Adobe or Microsoft keep redoing dead end code.
Most is junk code with patches on patches on patches.
Apple's are holier than though ...
so there is nothing to see here.
Of course if there are more holes in the IOS than in Nora Batty's tights then nothing needs ever be said.
..Apple recycling ? ...
Maybe they were refurbished but too few are nowvisitng those 'give me a freebie' Apple recycling points.
I'm reserving judgement on IOS 7 running very very badly on the iPhone 4.
Creative industries are based on trust..
whilst in big IT contracts Siemens and everyone else hoodwinks you into thinking they actually understand the project.
Government quangos get mugged for billions time and time again so £125m million is chicken feed.
The license payer maybe even got off light!
they are saying..
Servers should be light and nimble, not fast fitted together via high level code running on a bloated framework.
Weird. 'Server bloat comes as standard' seems to be what they are saying.
Free my mail
Oh no, it is free.
Imprison my mail, Imprison my mail, Imprison my mail!
