Re: not built properly

there is a new bonus scheme for chaps running the build of our new one.

It goes right off the Richter scale so obviously we can all 'bank on' something being done good and proper.

Any bets on it being us getting 'done' ?

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 ?

GT sapphire glaziers: You signed WHAT deal with Apple?

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

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 ?

Walmart's $99 crap-let will make people hate Windows 8.1 even more

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
