the heat is on
well, a side product of these is extra heat generation and thus low battery lifespan.
Maybe that Qi cuts off at somewhere above 60% to counteract some of this big negatives ?
Obviously, repairing the battery every 2 years generates massive industry income.
The dumb ass popular non replaceable battery has never been for consumer benefit.
well, what will they think of next/
These will be the same NET neutrality liars
2+ 2 = consumer sting
£45 Moto E or iPhone 6.
I'll have a dozen of them.
You never know, one might bend.
and 99.9% of Sky channels could be done away with.1
The good part(for shareholders) is that by getting rid of Freeview means Sky can more safely increase prices.
“It was pretty disturbing what I found”
As disturbing as the semi IT literates now in charge?
As ever, out of the frying pan into the fire.
A niche niche product
People really want GPS too, so what is the point of this being for double niche sporty type.
BTW, the lynch mob press OTT castigated(white lies) the Moto 360 etc for battery life so much Tim had to show everyone the recipe he had Cooked for his iWatch,
'Awful battery life'
Re: Fixed battery!
1 - Bendy fail
2 - Wet fail
3 - An 'RSI from being able to use them longer' fail
4 - a last clingy straw
They simply want your replacement money.
So what are Microsoft telling vendors ?
And you have to ask why MS has not made running of AV a bit more mandatory.
You get a browser selection process so why not a 'free AV' one? They could include MSE in the list.
yet MSE =
Mass Suicide Entity.
Beggars cannot be choosers.
That is how it works and and this is exactly the same as that Apple Sharp deal.
Apple logic is that you get the company to take all the risk and when they fail you make sure you inherit the wealth.
Remember, Apple would have used Sharp amongst others to persuade GT how Apple works.
UK Imagination likely has similar a deal, locking them out of lots of selling to big players elsewhere.
So damned if you do, damned if you don't ?
Re: Apple Sense
You mean money sense.
It is 1GB of Ram for £619 that bendy sub 6" thingy with Apple. And Safari runs like a like a one winged duck out of water.
Different tactics, a similar financial result.
It is the Intel/Microsoft netbook 'give then crap' scam all over again
Yes, crap enough to appeal but without no future whatsoever.
1GB became obsolete on Windows mid 2000s but thinking positive, at least they are not charging £619 for a 5.5" quick to obsolescence version.
it is still an mp3 player
You all forget that it is just a blown up iPod.
It was cool to have an mp3 player that could make phone calls. (obviously, only for those close enough to the transmitter)
If there was no iPod there would not be an iPhone.
Apple say 'it is cosy and warm in here'...
Keeping the door closed they see no evil and speak no evil.
The cold winter fall is only outside.
IF ONLY HE HAD A CLUE
The establishment idiots fail to realise that the Net creates a oneness where One winner will near always dominate.
Realise how it is and tax them so we can all benefit rather than suffer imposed crapness.
So it works as well as Flash on OS/X ?
Not forgetting that it will likely also be a Wintel alliance thing too.
Tell me I'm wrong.
What do the rest pay ?
Yes what about Yahoo!, Bing and DuckDuckGo, Amazon.com, eBay and Twitter.
Surely some of them pay at least a brass farthing ?
Well maybe now you have Message you know it has lock in, locking the other 90% of non Apple users into a non standard deviation.
There is a solution, use a cross platform app, do not accept 2nd best.
Horses to water but cannot make them drink
They are far too expensive really but with Apple getting a bulk cheap batch for next year, 2015 is the year of OLED.
Things will not so 'grey' then?
Re: And they signed the agreement why?
small share sales.
Tim Cook and mates sold $143 million at peak.
Its all automated years in advance. Stock options are like deferred wages to be cashed in slowly and automatically.
That is what they all do
17 toones of bluff
The QE2 has 300 times that.
If only they were close to water.
So how did bars on ships ever get a license ?
Now the Cupertino giant has marked that certificate as untrustworthy
Lets hope they releases an alternative for the security agencies.
Just like we have master locksmiths, we certainly do need cyber police.
How to deal with customers with perception problems...
'that is no a bend, it becoming the new style.
think positive customer, you are one of those 9.'
(don't tell him you meant 9th today)
jobs jobs jobs
So nearly all the money gets spent on them 35,000 employees rather than shareholder oligarchs ?
How is should be.
Keeping Linux down
And what do we see through the 8 round Windows children ?
that a car driver had, in a 20 minute journey had sent 3 text messages, received 4 and made one phone call.On a roundabout she did not see the motorcyclist everyone else saw, killed him yet the jury let the person off !
So it is jury drivers sticking together against other road users as the law of averages said the person was guilty as hell.
if it moves...
And if it does not move patent it.
loss leader ?
Sounds more like MS simply want sellers to work for nothing.
Likely the whole of Russia is heading to Siberian COventry. Tis more and more a heads down for everyone over there.
The expansion of the good old US monoply cartels
You get anything you want, as long as there is a big US company selling it.
by the time it is removed...
Apple will gave catalogued every piece of info they needed to future improve their business revenues.
Nice job Apple, I hope the genius who thought of that years ago got his bonus,. Obviously it has almost become standard policy to 'erroneously' collect useful data on each release.
I await a post seance statement that says Steve iss shocked by it all.
Surely it MEANS it's hard to repair, rather than making it hard to repair (that was done by apple)
Yes, 1/10 is the one next to 0/10.
So it is next but one to impossible to fix.
So how do you get out of that one Tim ?
There's was always holes in them holes Tim.
Now what is Plan C?
The thing about paying no tax..
Is that by paying employees as little as possible net profit rockets even more.
Corporation tax actually encourages them to pay proper wages !
re - Consumers in China should use strong security – such as 2-factor authentication
So why did Apple leave it out of the iCloud?
It is hard to keep aBreast of the real news on this.
Fobbed off ?
and what about my current fob ?
Sucker got unsuckered ?
re "it would be allowed sell off the Mesa facility and return the money to Cupertino, without disclosing any further information about the companies' relationship."
So it goes like this? :-
GT did the donkey work but Apple had a better deal planned with a more skilled tenant once GT sapphire kit was in. And GT extracted something for themselves via semi-blackmail.
Apple still suckered them good and proper.
Legacy system ?
It almost sounds like the IT bod Chap who actually knew what he was doing left years ago.
I hazard a guess it should have been a 2 minute job.
Will it cut down on data costs ?
What with all your data going to the NSA from US built network kit.
They are competing with Google via..
..the combined search thing.
It is not that we users want combined search, it is that Apple and Microsoft want your search business so getting us used to combined search is there way to kill Google.
Apple bluetooth is another data grabbing weapon, location again.
re - "can show high resolution images"
is low resolution yet another fail feature of 'Apple is not interested in the Web' or do we all get it ?
re - 'They've toned down the bass'
So that they are now only a bit less crap than true sounding cheap decent headphones.
They suit a few more music categories but you are far better off with music sounding as the artist intended.
ALl about Microsoft and Apple
who want to take Google down a peg or two.
Google trespassed on their Duopoly so this is yet another revenge attempt
Is it the screen ?
Seems to have a cheap TN panel.
That and the 22 nanometer low-power process would account for the battery.
ARM at 20nm would beat it and keep that taxing Intel wolf from the door
re "subject to regulatory and shareholder approval "
Regulators really need to look very carefully here.
Qualcomm patents has meant that those with superior big.little chipset have not been able to compete on price, those giving us lower tech on the CPU front.
This might cement the monopoly and thus be further bad news for competitors and even ARM
Cortext M7 co-processor
No doubt the DSP in this will do the job,
"only super-fanbois would bother to use iOS 8 at this stage in the game."
err but what about them suckers who still believe Apple hype.
There is no going back so at very worst they now own a paperweight.
there is a catch all phrase for all of them pips.
You are OWNING it wrong.
