iAd support at its best.
The great thing about Apple devices is that, in being ad supported, you get to contribute to that off shore tax dodging fund forever.
Skimming the UK dry like the rest of them evil companies. Obviously, it makes for a few more well paid sycophants in power.
in that restricting products and price is what Apple does.
So methinks we only have half the story. The dots do not join.
The three-pronged plan .......
Microsoft have likely detailed this three-pronged plan.
a) Scream about Google and privacy.
b) Ensure companies like Adobe avoid Google like a Flash.
c) Sue hardware companies who use Google software in any way they can.
Only light encryption is needed there.
USB = Unlikely to Satisfy those with Blinkers
Not for the Apple crowd I'm afraid.
Universality bad, garden duties good..
Apple get my prize patent award for ' fucked up world'.
It is all about 'Screw everyone , all the common people belong to us'.
More drizzle from a Cupertino brain shower session.
you are very creative with your truth.
You will get the very same truth talk from right wing politicians bigging up a free market . The consequences of this is an eventual $1 an hour wages for the majority.
The only way is to ban them!
Sadly, we all vote with our wallets.
Their really needs to be a n 'ethical trading law'.
This should be "Obey or Get out '.
Too right !
Yes indeed. Those execs sort of own the company so any 'short term' business that employ scum give away the right to ransack.
But scum like Amazon, Apple, eBay and Google do not have the right to ransack British coffers.
And are scum politicians lining their own pocket in support?
How about sponsoring sending Npower and that Cameron crony up to the moon.
Anyone want to power it via kickstart ?
720p is the new low end. Its a quick and 'Ready' HD..
Tech moves forwards and this is middle end at best.
So what if they other company prefers permanent a pesudo post war rationing system on their small lower end goods..
One for the 'Archive'.
Well, that sent things back to dee base.
'get your kit out for the lads' ain't cool anymore
Apparently cheap to make low resolution screens and smaller chips inside are now in.
Price stays the same. Its cool to donate and we don't need mega tech from our spend money.
No mention of which PCs and which systems.
Must be Microsoft then !
Meanwhile I'll use DuckDuckGo .
Who use Microsoft Bing.
Quack quack quack.
What's hiding under the bonnet Microsoft?
Sorry, can't say, our software is proprietary produced in Israel.
Antitrust is lip service. Anything can happen.
The AMD Intel things was lip service by the whole WinTel alliance.
Anti-trust, it surely will revert back to 'let's all pretend there is some competition'.
The day of the lesser spotted iPhone.
I get the impression that Apple fans are wanting some of this money spent on them rather than making do with old standard Retina phones.
Apple simply want to halt innovation and give us the same 'old before their time' phone products.
Apple make a level playing field......
for parts manufacturing contractors.
So the quality is set at a more middling level than the high end stuff in both LG phones and Nexus tablets.
Useful landfill though..
.. yet the iPhone has near enough made it into the science museum.
Ones with IOS 6 are well prized
Microsoft knew where to shove it...
well, shove a pretty picture onto the screen so you could click away to your hearts content.
whoo would have thought one clicky picture laid top/around a few thousand lines of code was to be worth 100's billions of dollars?
The honeymoon period
It is obviously the fact that the novelty wears thin after a few weeks.
Reality hit home hard.
Bad, just bad
Stop dodging corporation taxes, you evil thrawt Tim.
Apple did a very late about turn and realised they would be a laughing stock when they released their planned low resolution A7 Mini.
Obviously supply is constrained, suppliers have only just started making them.
But at least you get something better than that ridiculously cheap 1024 x 768 original.
Exactly right - the proposal is a mess.
"But the he feels W3C is making a major mistake in not specifying the exact form of DRM that can be used, which could leave browser manufacturers having to deal with competing and possibly incompatible systems."
If the web is to stay healthy they simply need a standard. Even if that is Silverlight 'opened up' , then at last everyone meets in the middle.
Then of course, 'that bag of hurt' will be less and thus save the web for walled in Apple users too.
You gotta have faith but Only You. Ain't That I'm taking the Michael, Vince?
Apple have such faith in their OS systems its a one way trip to no return !
So what happens if IOS 7 grows on you like an ugly turd ?
pay your taxes here then?
Someone like Branson will not normally be resident anywhere for more than 6 months of the year.
However, probably like selling his estate sale to the kids, money always chases money .
He ain't changed so I certainly do not expect him to serve the UK
4 what it is worth
Apple only pay what they think it is worth.
What fools will pay is obviously a separate issue.
Treat them mean, keep them keen.
If Apple ever brings out a smartphone with a competitive functionality and screen quality it will be seen as sign of failure.
Treat them mean and they will always be wanting next years model.
Or is it last years Android model, what with the 2014 iPhone sounding suspiciously like a Nexus 7 clone?
Will Samsung 'Bounce Back' ?
Well bounce back is so revolutionary it is patented so everything 'hangs by a thread'.
Quick Samsung, grab the 'hangs by a thread' patent.
The Jobs word was just another piece of marketing
Jobs, Retina, Thin, Ives and 64 bit.
All are simply part of the hard sell. and meaningless when isolated.
ve have many vays of kontrolling you
Quite obviously, employees are locked out of messing it up.
Sadly the lifetime paywall experience is no no for those of us used to better.
£11.2m more than Apple !
Yes, Amazon, Google and Apple are all scumbags
The more worrying thing is that our politicians might well be corrupt.
The 'heads in sand' from the lot of them is so scarily inept that workfare has almost become the solution !
Haters hit the boot camp .....
and there is no way back.
That's how you deal with dissent, give them zero choice. Tails permanently between their legs, they are owned forever because they simply have zero choice.
Slavery has never been such fun.
The experience is nicer.....
We have the no going back way of making it so.
This way there is no point in moaning so everyone just makes the best of a sometimes bad lot.
Anyway, those who hated IOS 6 the most got to drive off cliffs and into aeroplanes.
Kingpins are always responsible
Obviously with Apple the monopoly proprietary hardware they cannot claim 'free market' or anything such like that applies elsewhere.
SO its more far than always 30% guilty.
The suits usually win.
No surprise really,
its the same with apps, the guys wearing the suits usually win.
What is sort of surprising that we still have an internet.
There is only one big selling Windows phone - Nokia
Yes patents do matter. They win you the right to bankrupt everyone with lawyer and court fees.
Poor HTC, they might as well quit the Windows game right now.
Anyone know what the partial data says?
Well,I'd like to add some points but the data is so select, obscure and limited I can't add anything up.
Yet one small point though may be that unlike the rest off the world, the UK is still being led by the US.
Fact is that the more you pay the hierarchy the less responsible they really become.
Yes, they do get forced to resign, but usually via pension payments and a fat cheque and another fat cat post awaiting.
So will yet another independent review committee will be well paid. I expect so, that being an fat cat ass kissing industry in itself.
IE = play nowhere
In the world of internet gadgets its best avoid those with little in the rest of the world.
So Firefox both wins and plays anywhere. It would even play in IOS but for that big 2 fingers 'NOT WELCOME' sign hanging on that other web door.
Apple and Microsoft are quite hip these days.
Joined at the hip that is.
Having a mutual enemy makes for being best of friends.
From out of that room came the future.
"Nobody really knows what happened in the rooms."
Throughout APple history, small snippets from that room have been used to shape the fanboy herd.
And boy, does it work.
not the messiah
............a naughty naughty boy
as iffy as they are what about the rest
yes, in hard times Apple is a safe haven.
Those billions can make them into useful vulture fund, and as we well know they do not buy high.
