It can!

But culling all the devices well after the repair event has nothing whatsoever to do with security.

Cartels are US!

This likely concentrates things more in the US, Andoid being frowned on by being world wide open.

I simply see more difficulties for those embracing Java around the world, not forgetting that Sun/Oracle Java always rivalled Adobe Flash useless for bloat, .Net multi frameworks. Adobe Flash and Sun Java historically being the most PC crippling.

They might as well do it

So why exactly are IT investors so utterly clueless?

Alan Denman

You are missing the point.

...that Kickstarter is in fact a form of consumerism.

And often it is like those gadget shops with a vast vhoice of daft gadgets.

Often too, kickstarter works like a group buying JIT scheme.

7 million Apple Watches just buried the competition – Canalys

Alan Denman

Re: Explain please

.. the tech behind the HRM in the watch is too unreilable for this 'band' to be thought of as 'professional'.

That thus makes the 'health kit' marketing tag a bit insipid.

We're not killing Chrome OS ... not until 2020, anyway – says Google

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Anti Google marketing

Seems to me the news was mainly created to stifle the rise of Chrome OS. There is no mention of Jim Hood and the MPAA but the WSJ was the first in with it, them for some reason being an intended conduit in the Hood/MPAA New Corp thing. (sad that it makes us even more cynical about so called news)

And in a way users are happy without updates, especially as they invariably introduce new exploits.

Stodgy and relatively safe is Chrome OS.

Simple capitalism at work

It matters not that Apple have sold x million to resellers etc, the actual percentage going out from these sales is by design. If no one is buying fewer will get theirs on release day, simple as that?
