The short and curlies
Well maybe some will be happier being caught by the short and curlies?
Real competition ain't that good for long term business..
Highly ranked officals - by Microsoft
likely the very same ones who allowed Microsoft to monopoly bundle Windows with almost every PC that came into existence.
What will GreenPiss have to say about this?
Well, I bet there will be no Peace when that green between the ears lot has to think about their own actions.
The answer to the universe is 99?
There might just have been a grand total of 99 pre-orders.
So rather than admit no one is will to pay even sillier money, maybe that wait is just artificial one.
Of course far more likely it is still Beta like.
A lobbyist lobbying nightmare.
When Microshaft hits the mix nothing quite makes sense.
Subscription = how far do you want to fall ?
As an optional subscription service those 'opting in' well end up paying same money for half the service.
The problem being that with half the service even more may drop out so you could then end up at 'pay double' for half the service.
Of course the top brass will find it attractive for its 'big bucks bonus culture'.
Better than shutting out users like Apple does.
It is new (old)hardware getting shut out, not apps like happens with IOS 6 etc.
If you have your iDevice functioning like it used to, then there are no new apps available.
A chicken and egg conundrum.........,
...............yet most tech journalists appear to be in an embryonic state
Much of it is barking mad
Complex coding is just a branch of maths logic.
If the kids ain't yet competent at maths they ain't really going to be coding !
Nickname the 'Snide Phone' ?
So is this the very first Android launch wit the cannibalistic intent of destroying Android?
I'd imagine so. There's a dirty war already taking place.
What is the Filofax method?
Some form of spontaneous combustion switch maybe?
ssshhh, don;t tell anyone.
Apple is selling cheap phones.
Why not, they likely only cost $35 to make.
Re: Why? - tweaks its contents in order to improve its Duck Duck Go ranking,
Surely, any site tweaking for Yahoo Bing will achieve that !
Free adverts wanted !
"But an unnamed complainant in the case told The Register that serious niggles remained because competitors were still required to pay Google for inclusion in some of Google's results."
Seems a solution to auction off 3 lots of ads. That other problem of Google being the best and staying so through gravity of users is a whole different issue. Microsoft once had gravity, Amazon maybe does and likely so does Facebook.
People seem to be telling you to BingGoBing these days,
Quack quack Bing.
No victory - most claims are just part of the negative marketing tactics.
Microsoft's claims are mainly negative marketing, MS themselves are guilty of real monopoly abuse.
Yet natural gravity also does means Google have a monopoly in results driven search.
That is the problem and not abuse. Microsoft are simply feeling abused via Chromebooks, Android and Google search.
ARM were out manouvered.
Most marketing has gone into promoting older chips at ARMS expense.
With little take up of the much faster Cortex A15, ARM themselves got forced to go backwards in launching the likes of the A12.
As supposed partners of big American corporations they certainly look a bit brow beaten.
Peasants versus Corps
As said, the consumer pays.
Anyway, corporations fell out of love with net neutrality when the iPad came along.
The Democrats are fighting a losing battle.
Software companies gone soft!
There ain't many of the big guys left who ain't been hacked.
The bigger you get the harder you fall.
WebGL runs OpenGL ES 2.0
So it maybe has as much risk as any game that relies on the GPU, that being nearly all games.
A Sterling cliff hanger
With all that lucre now gone to an off-shore haven instead of the exchequer, globally Sterling edges ever towards the cliffs of Dover
Re: Sure smells like apple innovation in here
Most of the stuff is already being made.
They just sent advance notice that all your sales belong to US.
Two stupids don't make a right.
Whilst it is pretty weird that Fry tells us about technology its just as stupid to see stupidity when that stupidity ain't there this time.
The US to leave the dark ages of NO chip and pin
Obviously they have agreement to finally move the US forward into thew 21st century, encompassing NFC.
The backward cartels have no doubt said YES
50% at twice the price
Some will go without.
Some will go BT only.
Some will go Sky only.
Therefore at a positive 50% takeup, those buying will have to pay near £300 for the same service.
Pawned for how long?
I recall that Google Pawn prize was given for a hole in Webkit which Google fixed a month or so later.
Apple waited near 12 months so how long this time?
I sometimes assume its because the 'good guys', that being security services are a main user of exploits.
Its not their money.
There are only fanboys, you're a pretend owner mate.
Get used to it!
The Apple Time Machine.
When its good we get to know, when its crap it gets long term stored at the Tardis like depot.
North Korea eat your heart out !
Most of it is fucked
Pardon the language but simple software solution that have been actioned by most software engineers are now getting patented.
Even worse is the fact that new media calls it an 'invention'.
NO, it is just an extremely corrupted patent system.
You software engineers are going to be patented into oblivion !
All are lies.
In that supposed name of competition out watchdog is usually a poodle.
These companies should not be allowed to the compulsory unbundle line rental from the price.
Seems to me our watchdog is as useless as Ofcom.
Bing for OS
As said Bing is great for OS maps.
Now where is that Sustrans cycle layer?
Come on Sustrans, get charitable.
2014, the year of the "Locust movement"?
In the good old days the top companies were the benevolent tax paying loved authorities.
Now we have corporates out to own the whole world.
Many in tech seems to have joined that 'Locust Movement'.
Tax avoiding feats are another Amazon speciality.
Now what do we eat?
Apparently Tesco will have to close down next week.
It is their cache of food that infringes.
Capacity removal ?
Obviously, if the mobile networks join up to supply mobile telly, then there is little network to sell.
Luckily for them they can double up with 'price rises for all'.
This may means that duplicate LLUs will be removed at the BT bit so again it may mean less competition.
blame it on China ?
when the US went their usual sly protectionist way and accused China of having backdoors the US meant 'it ain't got our backdoors'.
Nein Nein Percent IOS
Meanwhile 99.9% of all IOS malware lies undiscovered.
Ve have de garden vay of making that AV detector software naff off !
INTRANET of things
Whilst some could argue it might also be 'internet of Thing', Intranet of things really applies to Apple.
That walled garden is an Intranet.
All your software belongs to Apple.
Every programmer who writes similar tricks on a daily basis is more into the claws of Apple.
Don't you dare think, Apple's got all thoughts patented.
Obviously 'Made in Rumania'.
I wondered what would happen to all that dead horse.
So 4K at 6 grand.
They will sell you the matching 4K monitor making for a minimum outlay of £6000.
It could be worthwhile to get away from a competing pair of Dells at £1000 total.
£5000 to get a way from Windows 8 is a bargain in my books.
How the Web was won.
This is the path to full control of the internet.
Its the is the end of the World Wide Web.
Few will venture outside the walled garden once it costs.
Android is the mistake
I'm not sure about the wisdom of inventing Android.
Only if they had known everything Google is now the enemy.
Even DuckDuckGo, that Microsoft stealth weapon is striking it lucky in the arena of hate.
Yet he dig his own grave with Microsoft
the demise of Digg came a year or 2 after switching from Google to Microsoft.
The value plummeted from 100's of millions down to a single digit value .
So what does this guy know about sense?
Seems Asus is a bit different
Looking at it again, the Asus one, Asus have simply removed their cut down quick start web browsing Linux and replaced it with Android.Quite obviously its cheaper Celeron ones that people will end up buying.
It looks quite out of place on an I7.
Asus have always been disruptivly innovative.
Sadly they also get tamed far too quickly by Microsoft and Intel. Lets see how this one pans out.
All a costly game
The ruse has worked very well in selling mid range technology at a higher price.
Perception is everything. In the end costs are always paid for by the general public due to lack of competitive technical innovation.
just luck then?
I assume predatory pricing has quickly moved them to a near monopoly in the west.
Don't forget Intel did something very strong arm similar with AMD. Even when a pre-decline AMD had the better CPU product hardly anyone would dare use them
"Not like me"
anyone else noticed that whenever Apple's case is extra weak so many posts seem to start 'I'm not normally in support of Apple but..' ?
So it is just like you, and you and you and you.
Off their rocker
the wise ploy was always to wait for some unknown artist to die and big him up.
South sea bubble spells disaster. One wrong move and everyone leap sideways into the safe hands of wungcoin or maybe one of the thousands of other bits coining in.
a token offering meant to be ugly?
like their hidden overpriced Linux laptops,
as likely as not this will be a token offering to show they are not hotly in league with Microsoft.
And we customers want all things to progress to dual or even triple boot, not master slave virtualisation.
