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.
Its gonna happen..
...so why else were they crippling much of their OS/X software ?
Big company are now the worlds biggest shitters on us all
Corps have become a recession creating machine sucking the lifeblood out of nearly everywhere they sell.
The sooner they act the better.
Stop being idiots, just tax them
Complete fools have the wrong end of the stick.
It is US corporate tx avoidance that is the main threat to the EU.
If they do not get told to pay up then we are alldoomed to poverty.
Music cartels are go
It is in the interest of music companies to have a fewer streaming sites.
So pushing Apple into success might shrink the playing field thus allowing higher prices in the long run.
We seldom seem to hear about Spotify, so they might have a massive publicity problem in not being US based.
Apple is Alcohol free
yes, there are some advantages in permanently wearing diapers.
New story for old shite
The media missed out several generations of Bendgates, but the 'biggy' phone gave the cowards a get out clause to report it without repercussions.
One wonders if they have to act en-mass so as not to suffer the wrath of Apple withdrawing advertising.
They are Fishy Sheep
Apple announcement Fun
Yes, they are a source of entertainment.
We should have Chubby singing the Apple announcement theme tune "Come on, let's twist again like we did last summer"
they are being asked to promote low ranking crap from many of their complainants.
The idea being to make Google crap like the rest to ensure 'fair competition'.
Oh, and DuckDuckGo is just a Bing powered 'shoot the Google duck' engine.
But he dismissed such dissenting voices today.
""..there are more problems with Google than there were with Microsoft," Almunia was quoted as saying."
Yet Microsoft were still allowed a 99% monopoly through so called 'competition'.
" Incredible web browsing battery life" .....
...........in that it is just below/matches the humble sub £100 Moto G .
By association the Moto G obviously becomes "super incredible" in that carry 5, keep the change and you have Monday to Friday sorted.
A load of bo**ocks !
Weekend sales include 3rd party shop stock !
Apart from 'direct from Apple'', Apple sales are not to the public so best ignored.
accusations and accusers
The main problem here is that the accusers are the competition.
And with the original monopolist Microsoft being well in the mix, everyone looks super corrupt.
"A little eBay shopping and you can find 128GB Micro SD cards for under a tenner"
Come on Simon, at least learn to rock man.
Those cards are all fakes.
All their own work
"“we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services."
Indeed, Apple do it all themselves.
Learn their jobs !
It does sound more like a clever redundancy program.
Get someone to learn you job by pretending you are on training.
Long term it is obvious that so called in-house training hints of the old factory systems where they found ways to charge staff.
Maybe IBM could charge a mandatory seat fee for non home workers?
So which IOS gadget got to have a cardiac arrest OS ?
Legend has it that one device becomes only semi-fir for purpose after Apple's infamous 'no goimg back upgrade ?
So has he legendary cull continued ?
A sabotaged WebGL !
Whilst the Rip Van Winkle OS has finally made WebGL work, it is artificially limited to be near useless for many.
Maybe it is that old chestnut, IOS memory problems that limit any sensible multi tasking. They also parameter constrain WebGL like it is a iPod touch 5th gen.
Obviously holding the door wrong
But they were a bit unhinged.
In sympathy to the other posts...
Yes, look at all the money we are making.
Buy one suckers.
Hell buy two !
you just canna make it up
Likely the press just made it up, they near enough invent every myth about the iPhone.
And I thought it was Freemium...
....in that they could have made a mint charging third party snoopers who want to see your illegal big assets.
Did they boob?
Microsoft, 'we care about privacy'...
.........only when we see others taking the market share.
A bit of a contrast to the Google chief, in defence saying "our search engine was 'built for users, not websites'", not?
'Sucker marketing' the norm ?
Seems to me that this servile attitude to US prices 'laughs at the people'.
It is not 99 cents, so why does everyone in the media turn a marketing headline into a full out and out lie.
Fans are already confessing their love for the ugly shit.
So when the real shit arrives the love volume dial will go all the way to 11.
the USPTO will have sanctioned an AMD/Nvidia GPU Duopoly.
That is how the bullshit USPTO patent system works.
Well, it ain't as it was but the demands are much about US control, 'all in the name of competition' will be the blurb from the most protectionist nation on earth.
So will normal service resume from the wIntel cartel?
Who is going to mark their X, designer style ?
So you get to design your own smartphone.
Well as we know, the Le Crunch fact is that thinking makes life go tits up if you do and tits up if you don't.
No thinking buyers then.
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.
