While you queued for an iPhone 6, Apple's Cook sold shares worth $35m

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

EU dangles $6bn threat over Google in endless search abuse probe

Alan Denman

No.

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 !

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.

Apple's Cook: We have never allowed g-men access to Apple servers

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."

Read IBM's note to staff announcing mandatory training and 10% pay cut

Alan Denman

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?

iOS 8 release: WebGL now runs everywhere. Hurrah for 3D graphics!

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

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.

'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.

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?

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.

Full of bull bloat then?

IOS was OK when it simply had to play music in the iPod but now it seems just a big fat Willie Wurst.

The higher crash rate certainly seems to show it is more bloated than the rest.

So, what on earth was the point of the " A quick look at the Dell UK and US websites "?

We know Dells dally with Linux was a charade where even finding the Linux devices on the web site was a battle and a half.

Russia, China could ban western tech if they want to live in the PAST

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

But who got there first, China or the US ?

The US bans a massive range of Chinese made goods.

That Symantec security hole was interesting as they were seemingly already banned in China.

So who is iving in the past, the US banning Chinese tech for made up security concerns, or China banning US NSA ware ?

As to Russia, well Putin pulled the walls right back up, he is just Nixon except for being here to stay.

Yes, that Y300 is essentially close to the iPhone 5/5s/5c/ or Galaxy Ace.

Apple realise people can make do with low resolution small phones so that is what they give.

Security risk will create need for removal.

Burglars will love these, using them to find when you are not at home.

Obviously when the security risk becomes too large its another £10 billion we have to pay to reverse the catastrophe.

Also, we are likely need another new power station just to run the damn things !
