Frank inadvertently channelling the "I'm a Mac I'm a PC " Apple ads ..funny
Re: Windows XP was considered a failure when it was first introduced
He He Microsoft shipping an OS that will only run properly on a machine that has not ben built yet.. What a ridiculous idea..
actually resulted in a system that incentivized the quantity of comments over their quality.. I think that they had the same problem in Ancient Greece?
It's real. You guys have been playing to many games on your computers.
The mark of the Beast
Wow! who knew.. maybe it's not 666 after all ..
points for style
Ah yes Australian politicians have such class. It make me sorry for the rest of us. Such a twit. oh!, I think I might have spelt that wrong..
It would have been nice to know if the turn by turn mapping actually works. And more interestingly (for me anyway) how much it will cost in terms of data roaming etc of if maps can be preloaded a la Tom Tom
I'm guessing but looking at the Reg this week someone has discovered that you can change ones FB page in to Pirate instead of English.. seems to be rubbing off
Too funny..You just can't make this stuff
Or can you?
I can't believe I even making a comment
Why are we even talking about this? Of course it's fake
I think that this is a great idea. However what have only one focus point?. The most annoying thing about focus is having to pick one subject. The possibility of having more than one subject in the picture but both in focus would IMHO be ground breaking. We will have to wait until Lytro 2.0.
Where do we go from here?
I'm a photographer and of course I have a website. I dumped flash(almost) because I wanted my clients, many of whom use iPads to be able to view my site. This was all working well until now. How do I make a webpage that scales without having to use Adobe Flash?
It's interesting Apple seem to have hit this problem too. On the Apple Site today there is a nice little feature showing video and movement..You can't watch it on an IPad!
It's not rocket science
Politician to Scientist "the weather seems to be changing and extreme events are becoming more frequent. should we be worried?"
Scientist thinks.. mmm well looking at core samples I could tell him that the next ice-age os well overdue and the likelihood is that there will be a fir degree of instability before that "kicks off" in about 500yrs.
Scientist to Politician "well your are right to be worried however I will need funding to look at all the implications..
Scientist thinks... mmm I could spin this out for years.
Probably not the best idea Mark's ever had
Well surely the point of Facebook is that you can see what your friends are saying and doing. But what if you weren't invited the the restaurant in question. I wonder could you sue. I'm sure there is a lawyer out there that does.
about bl**din time
Am I te only one who found la pond a wee bit tiresome
What is it with people who just can't handle their drink??
Reality Distortion Field
Hey it looks like Mark is in possession of Steve Job's famous reality distortion field.
When Bong came along I thought "Great" at last an option to using Google. Sadly though,IMHO it simply under performs and I have since stopped using it. It appears I'm not alone.
It's all about the maps, stupid!
Satnav companies will live or die by the speed at which they can update maps. As a TOM TOM user I am frequently amazed by the number of roads and speed cameras missing on the latest maps. If the was something better I'd use it. The platform is not important
The wrong way around
Instead of taking the mirror out they need to take the screen out and simply allow the photographer to see the shot image in the viewfinder. Instant review.. Great
Isn't is ironic
When Rebekah was editor of NOTW the favourite sport for the "silly season" was to pick a government minister as see if you could get him to resign. Now it's the other way around.. amusing don't you think?
wow Nokia finally make a phone that I would want to buy. a pity then that's it's already a museum piece
iWeb was getting a bit tired so It's probably a good thing for everyone.
The vision thing
1. Found exceptional new talent.
2. Funded and sponsored exceptional new talent.
3. Gave exceptional talent the resources to work full-time.
Yes but they got greedy and forgot that.
Michael Dell on Steve Jobs
Michael Dell famously said when Steve Jobs took over at Apple (the second time)" The best thing Steve can do It wind up Apple and give the investors their money back"
open and Democratic
What we can say is that you should always be wary of anyone who uses the word "open".
Yes its the same with Political Parties with the word Democratic in their name.
It's such a shame that this tech has never been incorporated into any mainstream devices.
where's the source
So that bank I used too use with the atrocious fuzzy call quality from their call centre somewhere on the subcontinent of India will be distinguished from a 419er in Lagos using a class 1 cell phone?
Am I missing something?
Surely for a server (or any other electrical equipment to be sold in the EEA it must have CE approval. Therefore if Sun did not want the product sold in Europe they should not have had it CE approved.
Not a clue
wow Apple makes good products with software that works .. Who knew??
We need a new word for this
Jobspeak. It seem thats Steve is trying to extend his famous reality distortion field to cover the whole planet.
Work in progress doesn't cut it anymore
Flash 10.1 isn't quite here yet. Isn't this the point? The popularity of the iPhone is that even a 2 year old can use it. The sloppy way windows system need updates,drivers etc to erm basically just work all the time, doesn't really cut it anymore. Adobe's new Flagship CS5 has some great bells and whistles but a lot of them are "under development"
Computers should be as reliable as ones washing machine, or dishwasher. You don't expect to have to turn it off and on a few times just to get ti to work.
I'm not pro or anit Apple I just like stuff that works..
Well he has a point
I don't know how many readers of the Reg are Flickr users but a quick look at the camera finder function reveals what the good Mr Vanjoki is really worried about. There is another very popular camera phone which at the moment seems unstoppable, Not the Regs' favourite phone but scary for anyone in the camera phone business as it's only going to get better (or worse) depending on how one views these things.
For those who are not Flickr members or can't be bothered to look. The most popular camera on Flickr is the Apple iPhone (yes that was camera) As for smartphones.. "Don't even go zerr" it's not pretty..
Child labour's OK though
Since when did bankers have morals?
It's the Hardware stupid
It really makes me smile when this subject comes up. For a media Phone or what ever you want to call it. Hey we have all seen them in every SF movie. One enormous snag, that until it is addressed video phones will just be cute plaything with no practical value. What am I talking about? Eye contact!, without "meaningful" human eye contact, conversation simple doesn't work. Sort the hardware out whereby you can look into the eyes of the caller and really the software doesn't matter that much..
It's a bit of a worry
Why is it that so many people in this world feel the need to destroy what they don't understand..
I tried to listen,, really I did but that voice Ouch..
Aggressive use of a camera
Now I have heard everything!!
That raises an interesting issue
Is it true that you do not need a TV licence if you only have a computer and a broadband connection. My computer screen is actually larger than my TV!
It's a shame
What a pity, the only traffic congestion system ever to be proven to work is being dismantled. Seemingly by people no imagination
Faith Hope and Charity
Well Faith based is exactly that... It's all a bit sad.
Marvelous waste of time
Wow. so much on this one. Some of the replies are really great . but you are ALL missing the point..
It would have to be XP
We all Know if they have compared Vista to OS X we would still be waiting for Vista to finish
The problems with Bees seem to be linked to GM crops. WOW that would be a story. Obviously something else, couldn't possible be GM. Or could it??
and look at vacancies.. a coincidence??
