HP CEO to reveal fate of WebOS in two weeks

Wrenchy
Linux

Great platform in the wrong hands.

- Sell WebOS to Google.

- Google to infuse WebOS DNA into Android. Google already has WebOS UI designer Mattias Duarte at the helm as Android UI Chief so there is familiarity there already.

- Google to turn this into something wonderful!

iOS upgrade cocks up iPad USB connections

Wrenchy
Linux

It Just Works. Yeah right

Isn't this "Integrated solution" supposed to eliminate issues like this? Don't they test this stuff before release?

With all the verbal diarrhea that Jobs is spouting off about Android's "Fragmented" platform, iOS doesn't seem any better.

US smartphones – Once you’ve had Android there’s no going back

Wrenchy
Linux

@ Syd

Keep smoking that Crack and sipping the Cupertino Kool-Aid.

Do you know what you are talking about? Have you ever owned a high-end Android device? If you did, you would not spout out those lies. Those devices are superior to any iPhone to date. Android is gaining market share at an astounding rate for a reason - Android is good.

>>> iPhone is for people who can't afford an iPhone.

If you get the phone on a two or three year contract, most high-end Androids are the same price if not more than the iPhone 4 so there goes your theory genius.

The iPhone is a nice device but do you ever think that people *may not like the iPhone?*

Move along troll.

Verizon: we like Microsoft, but not Windows Phone 7

Ouch!

Now there's a kick to the giggleberries!

This Win7 Phone better be phenomenal or else it's saynonara MS Mobile.

I would like to see them do well. Competition fuels innovation and the customer benefits in the end. But this is Microsoft we're talking about there...

Android rebellion: How to tame your stupid smartphone

Wrenchy
Linux

Is this article

supposed to be a joke? No Android user I know of (I know many) has any of these issues. I certainly don't. For what it's worth, I hear of a lot more issues with the iPhone than any Android phone. For a phone that touts itself to "Just Work", it's doesn't always.

I think you would hear more of these "issues" with Android on more tech sites if they were true. But somehow I don't think they are.

Android gets talk-tastic Froyo upgrade

re: Bzzzzt!

My 2003 Samsung phone had voice dialing. What's your point?

Apple is not the first to put this feature in a phone, and it certainly isn't the best either.

Apple antenna guru 'warned Steve Jobs' over Judas Phone

Wrenchy
Linux

Oh the smugness

I hope Stevie-Boy's arrogance took kick in the teeth over this.

The quest for some "Brilliant engineering" took priority over an expert's recommendation.

In Steve Jobs' own words... "If you have to put your phone in a case to make calls, YOU BLEW IT."

Consumer Reports: 'We were wrong about the iPhone 4'

Wrenchy
Linux

You do realize...

"Duck Tape" is an actual brand of duct tape.

http://www.duckbrand.com/

So calling it duck tape could also be correct.... Sort of like saying "Scotch Tape" for adhesive tape.

If only I had some Penguin Tape for my 12 year old Linux Box....

The REAL problem here is....

The guys at Consumer Reports were testing the iPhone 4 wrong...

They never consulted one of those Apple Geniuses on how to properly test the phone...

Android slurps market share from Apple, RIM, Microsoft

Wrenchy
Linux

History Repeating Itself

>>At this rate, Android will shame Steve Jobs and Apple in much the same way the Cupertino cult was shamed by Microsoft Windows two decades ago.

Yup, that just about sums it up!

The Little Green Robots are coming!

That's a shame. If Stevie-Boy wasn't such a douch-bag, locking the platform down like Fort Knox, the iPhone could have been really magical.

But, like all idiots, they don't learn from their mistakes... Two decades ago.

Internet Explorer drops below 60% market share

Wrenchy
Linux

MY GOD.

If the clowns over at Redmond are wondering why IE is losing market share, JUST USE CHROME FOR 5 MINUTES then compare with IE 7/8. See the difference???

Ugh, IE is the absolute worse browser you can use. Each time I see a friend using IE, watching the pointer stall and stall, I ask them if they have ever tried Google's Chrome browser. Usually, they have never heard of it. They usually let me install it on their machines and a few days later, they will get back to me as to how much snappier their browsing experience is.

I'm sure MS has some smart cookies working for them. Why can't they put out some slick software like Google?

Sony sued for dropping Linux from PS3

Wrenchy
Linux

This type of action

sounds like something Apple would do. Offer a function and remove it later at their whim. But like all things Apple, the loyal fanbois would never questions it.

Sony should get their heads out of their a$$es and do the right thing. Restore 'Other OS' capabilities like they originally advertised the PS3 of having.

ITC investigates claims against Apple

Here's an Idea...

Why don't we all just get together in a circle and sue each other for anything and everything under the sun and have one big patent circle-jerk? That way all the sleazy, corrupt lawyers get rich and fat and us lowly consumers get cutting-edge technologies products held back?

Apple leaves profits on table for 'huge' iPad future

Wrenchy
Linux

What can a netbook do that an iPad can't?

I can tether my netbook to my phone with a few mouse clicks. I already have a data plan for my phone. Avoids me paying for two data plans.

You CANNOT do this with an iPad. You would have to shell out for a 3G version of the iPad and pay for a data plan for the right to use the internet on the road.

Sounds like a scam to me.

Steve Jobs says 'No' to iPhone-to-iPad tether

Wrenchy
Linux

HAHAHAAAA

This reminds me of when I was 7, I asked my parents if I could do something. I would ask and wait fearfully as they sat back, crossed their arms, frowned, and replied "NO". I would be devastated.

All the little iTards out there waiting fearfully for Evil Steve's response.... A thundering "NO".

And they all broke down in tears. Devastated.

ROFL!

Apple turns the flamethrower on Android

Wrenchy
Linux

I hope Apple doesn't patent..

..The act of breathing. They have a cunning way of receiving a patent for the obvious, then beating someone over the head with it when someone comes remotely close.

They probably have someone that works for the USPTO on the Apple Board of Directors. Granting them patents left and right.

Netbook shipments surge

Wrenchy
Linux

Why on Earth...

..Would anyone buy a netbook when you can buy a shiny new iPad? Just wait, when the Moses Tablet is finally available to us unworthy mortals, it will signal THE END of those junky netbooks.

Why buy a piece of crap when you can splurge on some shiny superior Apple kit? Yes you can't install the (non-Apple approved) programs(s) of your choice, yes you can't hold it with two hands and thumb type, yes you can't get a good viewing angle when you're seated at a table and it's laying flat, yes Apple has you by the short and curly's when it comes to downloading content without iTunes. But hey, it's still an Apple and it's all about the 'User Experience'. This survey will seem like a joke 6 months from now.

I feel sorry for all you netbook toting fools. Apple is the only way to go. That's what the Church of Jobs keeps telling us.

Not

in Evil Steve's universe... Not in his lifetime.

I'll go with the snowballs chance in hell rather than Evil Steve allowing such mix and match concepts.

Come to think of it, I don't think you can do that with most electronic devices. They're pretty much disposable appliances these days. Break it, if it's not under warranty, turf it, buy new one.

Porn app targets your Android

@AC 08h06

>> Googlephone users are wankers

So what of it? What are you trying to say?

Haven't you heard that classical song "The Internet is for Porn"? Youtube it sometime.

I love choice. If I don't like it, I don't buy it. Period. You sure can't get it on St. Stevie's little status symbol - And that irritates you iPhone users because you lot are bigger wankers than us Gphone users.

Macs not all that for reliability

Wrenchy
Linux

REALLY????

That study seems to make sense. I was at a Best Buy bringing my wife's HP laptop in for the 3rd frickin time. At the service counter, two people brought in their Mac laptops with issues. They did not seem too enthusiastic about being there.

Looks like the 'superior' Mac hardware doesn't seem so bullet-proof after all as the stats prove. Perhaps Apple should change their slogan to "It just works... Except when it doesn't"

'World-mode' iPhone due next year, says fanboi rumor

Well, well, well...

Looks like Apple is trying to suck up to Verizon, begging on their hands and knees to put the iPhone on the Nations Best 3G Coverage Network!

"Oh Mr. Seidenberg, please allow us to place our humble iPhone 3GS World Phone on your kick-ass network" "We've learned our lesson with AT&T and we're willing to loose our massive phone subsidy just so we can sell more iPhones to your loyal customers".

(Seidenberg)"Thanks for the offer Stevie-boy, we'll think about it..." "I'll get back to you."
