The Fad Pad

It got that name at birth.

As long as people like me shout its name people will keep buying it.

Percentages percentages

SO what percentage are books, what are music downloads and most important of all, what is the in-app purchase percentage of actual app buys?

Lack of info suggests in-app buys earn Loadsa Dosh from a few suckers.

ARM: We've signed 41 new deals and we are IN to the Internet Of Stuff

Alan Denman

Sad old ARM ticked the 'No Publicity Box'

...yes, you become a forgotten minion when you sign on the dotted line with US corporates.

Saying that, they would get attacked some other way, maybe with anti-dumping legislation if they competed head one.

HIDDEN packet sniffer spy tech in MILLIONS of iPhones, iPads – expert

And Apple get the green light whereever sold

Obviously, regimes, inlcuding the one that protects the US need to have some control over their population.

Secret societies do not exist for our benefit, so at times it can be said to be for our benefit too.

Meet the 'smallest GPU' for wearable gizmos ... wait, where did it go?

Alan Denman

Must be in the iWatch.

I imagine so but importantly for Imagination, they need to sell elsewhere as Apple now seem to be their life support machine.

Working for Apple is sometimes like ticking a No Publicity Box.

Well, they must be stupid enough to think that is the total price. Otherwise, why would we keep getting this 'for dummies only' headline every July?

Boris: Look on 'London's digital tentacles', ye mighty, and despair!

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

'Canned' is the word

Yes, I really do wonder how many days a week Boris actually gets out of bed. Did he write that line, maybe so looking rushed in being so bad.

Talking of laziness, he did look less unkempt the other day, so he does rise pre-lunchtime on occasion.

'Old', are you are having a laugh, he's having a laugh.

September 2012 is less than 2 years ago,

If they trusted them at all, would they have then given a proper 2 year warranty like quality competitors?

Intel pleads for €1bn EU fine to be overturned, is DENIED

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

The sorry tale of protctionism..

extends to keeping out Linux and x86 alternatives.

Remember, Microsoft once supported Mips in Windows NT.

Obviously that was protectionism too. I bet x86 manufacturers Intel mainly had a big stick out on that one.

And even now ARM, the mips like chip designer is getting protectionist strategies shoved down their throats. The smaller partners are certainly being encouraged to move to Intel.

New Apple iOS to help fanbois thwart Wi-Fi network spies

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

it is all about the Spam

Reading it I can really see why.

Rather than a random number, these numbers pre-determine iDevices.

Of course a pre-determinied number in future wll be for that increasing iAd iSpam.

I'd suggest you turn off bluetooth and Wifi while you can.

Likely any on/off user control you currently have is just short term. Greed matters with Apple.

Has Google gone too far? Indie labels say it's crunch time for The New Economy

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

"Indie music labels say today's tech giants are behaving more badly than the old record industry "

I heard that the big labels rip off their artists and if the artists don't go with the big labels, Apple the chooses to rip them off even more !

So with a catch 22, is someone going to publish what these cartel giants pay?

It has always been 'garbage in garbage out' with Windows.

Nightmare on a fruity Elm Street.

It was already in the 10 Apple commandments.

Though shalt not write code for any other platform. This will make it more and more mandatory to have to write 2 very unique sets of code down the line.

Nothing has changed whatsoever.

it has always been about the Microsoft Apple cartel.

Those phoney wars will continue as it serves this purpose.

And DuckDuckGo is pretty much all of Bing. The complete lack on principals in this war means few tell you that.

"instead a premium product for high end devices"

Methinks you could go even more premium and use ARM.

Too late to do it now ARM, but you should have been charging more money more than Intel for your premium low energy chips!

Obviously a low level analyst does low level code and as such is a high level operator to me and you.

You gotta laugh cos they are both right in that description, just happens that the US one is propaganda marketing.

It's Google's NO-WHEEL car. OMG... there aren't any BRAKES

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Not cars but the cap fits for public transport

I can see it now. 7.30am your car arrives from its pod, picks you up and drives you to work collecting maybe one other person doing that same exact route.

At 9.30 the cars forms a centipede like train of to head off to central points, ready for mass action.

A car at your hose/work place within 2 minutes of a whistle? The blocker in all of this is, even now, is the switch from oil to electricity. The grid system is simply not ready.

Google clamps down on rogue Chrome plugins and extensions

Alan Denman

Best to avoid Chrome really !

The bigger the corporation the more they want to monopolise you?

The OS is open so use it to your advantage, not Google's advantage.

Otherwise they will be a pseudo 100% monopoly of control.

Loads of dosh, loads of dosh.

Rockchip can't afford to turn them down can they ?

Now, if they can tie them all into dropping or maybe just pricing up ARM, well that would be one hell of a coup.

TO have ot not to have that is the question.

To have to to have not.

Remember, you get the chance to have your mail with an SD slot. With non SD phones, 'pay for storage, pay for data' Cloud storage too quickly becomes the solution.

Smart weaning !

As already said, this is what Intel are famous for.

Wean them early to later treat them all mean.

Saying that, they did come very unstuck with that expensive $300 Ultrabook Chipset.

Senate decides patent reform is just too much work, waves white flag

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

They ain't patents....

The bigger companies are simply patenting everything that moves, and everything they is not intended to move!

With Corporate evil/greed, do you really expect them to co-operate?

When all is said and done, they are mainly doing a land grab, they ain't inventions as we once knew them.

Apple haggles with ISPs for fast lanes to its own websites – industry guru

Alan Denman

the war against the consumer has now moved sideways.

So, beyond that truce this is the new angle in their all controlling money making scheme.

Cartels r US, says Apple. Likely they were heavily involved in that net neutrality breakup discussion.

With billions available, slowing poorer opposition down could well be lucrative

Screen too small?

Strange, the 11 to 12 " size is almost proven the preferred 'usable' size.

As sure as that Apple phablet, Apple will almost certainly have theirs arriving once 9" sales go downwards.

SAVE NET NEUTRALITY, urges Steve Wozniak in open letter to bigwigs

Alan Denman

This new regime will be wonderful for the likes of A T & T

Just think

that 2GB contract you pay for will impact so much on their ability to stream the $20 a month TV stream they supply you will be down to dial up speeds once again.

Result, A T & T double the cost of the 2GB to reduce congestion.

A win win for both A T & T and their streaming partner.

Creative industries are based on trust..

whilst in big IT contracts Siemens and everyone else hoodwinks you into thinking they actually understand the project.

Servers should be light and nimble, not fast fitted together via high level code running on a bloated framework.
