Report: Apple seeking to raise iPhone 6 price by a HUNDRED BUCKS

Mike G

Re: "no other game-changing device this year"

Aberdeen being on the East coast actually has similar rain fall to Kent. You'd be looking for somewhere on the West coast which would have nearly 10x the average annual rainfall of either.

Scottish leader splurged £20k appealing disclosure of EU membership legal bungle

Re: Honest politicians are rare

As somebody that stays near his constituency, I've seen the very worst of his corrupt, hypocritical and cowardly behaviour close up in local and national politics. I'd recommend watching 'tripping up trump' to see an example of how his constituents get butt-f*cked in the name of him toadying up to one of the world's most odious people.

Re: Are the Chinese really the enemy?

Samsung takes mobile net traffic crown from Apple

Mike G

What they haven't said is whether they count iPad safari hits in their mobile stats, which isn't any more a 'mobile' than a laptop is. Inclusion of iPad hits would skew the percentages in Apple's favour a lot.

Apple cored: Samsung sells 10 million Galaxy S4 in a month

Re: Fanboi Mania - difficult to understand, from either camp

Agreed. It's hilarious the hypocrisy of apparently being part of an elite that 'thinks different' yet then crying like a scalded baby when anybody suggests their phone isn't the best seller.

Muso scrapbook Soundcloud gets $50m, corporatespeak makeover

Mike G
Thumb Down

Soundcloud can fuck right off with their recent overhaul, where they ignored outcry of the faithful paid users who got them to where they are now. Autoplay that you can't turn off is bad enough, but it insists on playing utter shite you have only the most tenuous connection with. Presumably an attempt at stat padding views/plays for when they start selling ads.

Flash Player to vanish from Android store on Wednesday

Mike G

Re: Wasn't this

You'll find that html5/css3 stuff that now replaces flash actually uses a lot more cpu (e.g try run any canvas animation on mobile) and has a larger file size (doesn't compress as well as in a swf and needs lots of large external libraries like jquery). But html5 is the hip thing so yay for progress in a going back 10 years type way.

Radio hams unite to fight off new powerline comms standard

humourless and angry. I'm deliberately installing powerline adaptors from now on wherever I can, for no other reason than to interrupt these obnoxious old farts

Great reply. I totally have respect for the knowledge of radio hams, and any garden shed scientist, but absolute disdain for their unyielding and cantankerous lack of humour. Wherever there is a radio ham thread, there are angry old men, but if they were REAL radio hams they shouldn't be on the interwebs, they should be expressing their indignant rage on shortwave, tootling and beeping frenzied morse to whoever may be listening on another side of an ionosphere bounce.

British Gas parent to grab £500m North Sea gas tax break

It's an inducement to encourage local gas production and secure energy resources under our control, rather than rely on Russian gas import to Europe or the slowly ramping but still miniscule renewable sector.

Re: Because...

"holds back development of a richer web"

What a load of tosh. There's loads of advanced functionality that can be done in flash that can't be done at all in html5, and plenty more that can be done in a reasonably cross platform and browser way that you won't be able to do for perhaps another 5 years due to cross browser incompatibility in html5.

That's without mentioning how javascript is positively retarded compared to actionscript, and how flash managed to iterate and deploy new versions with new technology a lot more rapidly than can ever be hoped for from the w3c

Re: What About the Sea Level?

You wouldn't notice, because the boats are lying lower in the water, as each generation of yank bible-bashing anti-science hamburger munching fucktards that fills said boats is a little bit more grossly obese.

At least in centuries gone by, you tidally bobbing sea-turds could only whoop and holler within waddling range of the nearest barbecue or baseball game. Now that we have internets y'all gonna spread your righteous, homely fisherman's 'wisdom' over in parts of the world where we read books n stuff and rightfully pour scorn on hill billy bubbas homespun yarns.

Adobe can't penetrate punters' tight wallets: Users holding out for CS6

Mike G
Trollface

While I generally agree that Adobe deserve a lot of criticism, there's a lot of whining about price for what are professional tools meant for full time creatives.

If you're a target professional (as opposed to a part-time bedroom hero 'designer' working from mommy's basement) then you can make back the price of the suite with one small website, one corporate video, one brochure. A few days work a year will keep you in upgrades, big deal.

If you're a bedroom hero, or whiney skinttard, then as others have mentioned above there is plenty OS software like the gimp, audacity, inkscape etc for you to fiddle with, you could even probably use open office for your birthday invites and the like.

Netgear debuts first next-gen powerline network kit

Radio hams are .. killing the bees!

And it's not like radio hams are communicating anything useful. Kinda like twitter at 1 billionth of the message volume, where the letters get garbled and smudged, and restricted to chat about beards, pipe tobacco and 'old people staples' like bad health, the weather, the good old days (before powerline adapters/ the war)

Always like to see greedy selfish leechtards that take the piss torrenting and warezing and fuck-knows-whatsing with their 'interwebs' getting a massive HOOF IN THE BAWZ. There is no way anybody that gets throttled or capped is using their bandwidth for stuff that isn't illegal, unethical or just plain tarded. Anybody that downvotes me is quite clearly a bearded torrenting porno fiend.

Anybody that uses opinion from the blog 'Raging Doucheball' by Gruber, the well known Jobsian fawner and sycophant, to back up their argument basically gives the game away that they to are of the same ilk, though shouldn't be surprised considering about the google hate shown since Strobe was formed by an ex apple employee.

crapps not necessary for cheapo tablet

It has the web, email, and will function as a useful media player, which is all it needs to justify the new price considering these are the tasks that justify a tablets existence for the majority of users.

You are correct in that there won't be a glut of thousands of useless tat apps that hold the attention for 5 minutes, and the dozen or so apps that have actual utility that can't easily be replaced by some web page or another.

Adobe outs un-Flash web animation tool

Mike G
Facepalm

Adobe only responding to market demand

They're only responding to market demand from bearded web standards bores, who after years of whinging about flash and grumping about new fangled animation, now find themselves liberated by the html5 w*nkfest to fawn excitedly over over every hello-1995-again sub-flash html5/css3 jerk-o-animation. There are at least half a dozen other html5 animation apps in various stages of beta by the likes of sencha.

Hey standardistas, you wanted html frippery and now you're gonna get it ladled to you in massive glowing, flickering and unblockable spoonfuls, adobe or no adobe.

As we speak, Fanbois are in a frenzy of ipad tippy-tapestry, the outer feathered fringes of their 20-haircuts-on-one head quaking with scientologist level anger at this outrage of vigesimal score omission.
