Re: An accountancy error?

Quality test?

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.

Barnes & Noble: Swallow a Samsung Nook tablet, please ... pretty please

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.

Secretive Apple's super-secret university is full of BULL chic – leakers

Alan Denman

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.

Don't be a stupid early adopter, this means that the resulting mix of 32 bit and 64 bit apps will both bloat memory and crash more too !

Dell + Microsoft = cozy cartel

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.

Waving their flag, Dell serves Microsoft and Microsoft serves Dell.

Atom did great back in the Netbook Boom days.

But obviously Boom and Bust was actually part of that 'cripple them' plan.

Why sell low cost when people can pay really good money and also get to say 'Core' ?

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.

Mobile not Desktop - I dont use mobile !

Using desktop mode because my screen is not a low res device and because Desktop Mode is not banned like Safari I doubt my browsing counts.

Likely Safari iPad counts as mobile too cos on that users have to be thankful for what they get.

By all accounts sapphire prices have dropped of recent.

Obviously the sapphire ones will be marked up another $100 ++++

err it does the crashing on ypour behalf.

Try using multi tabs with the darn things reloading on you !

This makes the iPad useless much of the time.

Y300

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.

Not everyone wants or even needs those high end high resolution Note type phablets.

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 !

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Alan Denman

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.

Alan Denman

"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?
