Got an Android phone? SMASH IT with a hammer – and do it NOW

David 138

Re: Service pack

Half the time is abandoned by the manufacturer. I don't think anyone should buy a phone that isn't a Nexus variant if you want a good experience with android. Cyanogen and all that bollocks can sod off as well, half the time they seem like they are about to fragment. Its a die hard few, or people with abandoned phones that turn to it.

Windows 10 on Mobile under the scope: Flaws, confusion, and going nowhere fast

David 138

I quite like 10, runs smoothly. Touch wood all of our apps from W7 work fine at the moment and i havent seen any real issues with it for quite a while. It just has the benefits of W8 with a user interface that doest suck.

Re: What should Microsoft's enterprise clients do now?

Why do people even mention Linux as if its a viable option for 99% of people unless you have a MASSIVE budget for custom development and support.

Pray for AMD

David 138

You skipped a few intel chips to make them seem better?

Intel

Pentium - You added Athlon so why not :P

Duel Core - That means 2 processors taped together as they hadnt mastered cores

Celeron - This means duel or quad processor that could be newer or older than an atom, but is it better or worse than atom?

Atom - Low powered Celeron? who knows, they run cold and stick them in crap tablets

i3 - good

i5 - better

i7 - best

AMD

Athlon - Defunct brand

FX4 - 4 Core

FX6 - 6 Core - This probably gets confusing as intel dont really do more than quad :P

FX8 - 8 core

A8 - Low power good

A10 - Low power better

FX<insert random number here> - ?

Re: My main gaming rig is AMD...

Radeon is the same as calling something g-force. I in no way could tell you what the best nVidia card is :P Intel chipsets are still retarded, and they have the processor names Atom, i3, i5, i7, Xeon, celeron and a few other crazy ones, but then which one has multithreding, how many cores? Its retarded. Especially the Xeons.

Close encounter: Apple Macs invade the business world

David 138

The last time i tried to add the Macs to AD I was surprised to find it worked really well......at first. Then when the time came to update there domain password it all went to hell. OSX would not update the changes properly logins suddenly started taking 20 minutes. I never worked out what was causing the issue, we have so few i dropped them off the domain and let them use local accounts. Apple make nice hardware but they are useless at software.

Thought Apple was kidding about diversity? Here's 50 MEEELLION reasons you're wrong

David 138

It would depend on how they approached it, I think i would feel a bit of a token effort like they where just ticking boxes on a Facebook how diverse are you quiz. Really Apple should focus on employing the best software engineers (they certainly need it) and not focus on their sexuality, skin colour or race.

Flash flushed: Google's AdWords to convert ads to HTML5 automatically

David 138

Buggy!

"Steve Jobs notoriously having described Flash as "buggy" and its coders at Adobe as "lazy.""

Im pretty sure Steve Jobs never used his products or got involved with either iOS or OSX. Otherwise he probably would be have picked his words more carefully. Especially considering the other article on the register with Apple as the buggiest of the vendors :P

Apple design don Jony Ive: Build-your-own phone is BOLLOCKS

David 138

Re: Alternatively

If people wanted to be told how their phone looked then all cases would be clear? Just because the iPhone doesn't offer choice doesn't mean people don't want it. Ives first decent design was the ipad mini 2 in grey and the. Everything before has been shite.

Apple CEO: Fandroids are BINNING Android in favour of IPHONES

David 138

If i didnt dislike ios because of itunes, the messy desktop, inconsistent UI and the dated look i would have an iPhone. One thing they do get is updates, and you don't feel like a second rate customer when a new phone is released seconds later by the same company. Android could do with more premium phones with continuous updates,

Not app-y with VAT: Apple bumps up prices in Blighty, Europe, Canada

David 138

"It was also a good Christmas season for the Bono-founded RED campaign, which raises money to fight AIDS. In November Apple set up Apps for RED, a group of 25 applications where the total sale price of each program went to the charity for a week, and the firm reports this helped raise over $20m."

Should have know that B*****d Bono was involved. Short sighted prick had this stuff only available on IOS so that there where exclusive updates to some games we could not buy on android. You would think AIDS was exclusive to iPhone users.

Euro Parliament VOTES to BREAK UP GOOGLE. Er, OK then

David 138

I wish they would break up the European parliament.

Just because there are no decent alternatives to a product doesn't mean it abuses its power. Also doesn't everyone hate search engine results that lead to search engine results?

PEAK APPLE: iOS 8 is least popular Cupertino mobile OS in all of HUMAN HISTORY

David 138

Installed it my work ipad 4. It really makes bugger all difference having it except all the apple apps dont complain that they need ios 8. I did notice that the animations seemed slightly more choppy. Didnt notice the design change :P as i hadnt really give it enough attention. iOS has always seems rather dull and i cant stand crap on the desktop. I would hate to see the designers desktop.

Also none of our work Apps broke which means its a minor Apple upgrade. You can spot significant iOS and OSX updates because they break everything like a point release of Java.

Hey, YouTube lovers! How about you pay us, we start paying for STUFF? - Google

David 138

They should remove adverts for users of Google All access music. I wouldn't pay for YouTube directly as i don't use it all that often for music and no one in their right mind should as most music streaming is free on spotify. Also would PSY have made any money out of that song without YouTube?

Finnish PM: Apple has DESTROYED FINLAND

Euro chiefs: Hi Google. Here's how to REALLY protect everyone's privacy. Hello? Hello?

David 138

I couldn't care less about the data sharing except for ways to contact me such email addresses. it pisses me off that companies are allowed to share those without explicit permission. I prefer Googles ads to the crap that gets pumped out from places like facebook, Yahoo etc.

As for NHS data they should shovel that to companies by the boatload if it assist in research to improve drugs and treatments. If the Government cant afford the research then someone has to do it.

iPhone 6: The final straw for Android makers eaten alive by the data parasite?

David 138

It would be a sad world with Apple in power. Mobile development would stall. PC hardware development would stall if not completely stop. Everything would be an in app payment, everything would come from over priced App stores. We would all be, "Writers", "Musicians", "Graphic Designers" or "Web Professionals". This would mean that websites only worked on firefox because someone told us it was good 12 years ago. "Responsive Design" would become standard on all websites meaning that no one could actually use the web effectively anymore for anything and there would be no way to turn it off. On the upside everyone would quickly die of cancer from having to use iTunes.

Tim Cook on pale, male Apple: 'As CEO, I'm NOT satisfied'

David 138

So if your a black female lesbian and you get a position at Apple then you can rest assured its because it's ticking boxes not that you are right for the position? diversity in a company should not matter, It should be the best person for the job even if that means it has 0 diversity. Its like the BBCs policy of having more women on chat shows. Nothing wrong with women being on the shows, but surly they will always wonder if they are the token woman.

Its horrible that they would turn someone away because of colour, sexuality or race.

Gov.uk's broadband boast: Superfast fibre piped to 1 million Brits

David 138

hmm

They have upgraded a number of exchanges here but not many cabinets. So i guess it all looks good on paper. However those with 24mbps connections are getting upgraded so thank god for that.

You have to wonder what the uptake is for areas which already have good broadband? A lot of people couldn't care less. I would bite their hand off for anything better than the 1mbps we get here.

Barclays Bank counter staff to become iPad-toting 'community bankers'

David 138

Re: Oh good

The people who rush food at you while you struggle to throw it into the nearest trolley fast enough that it doesn't fall on the floor?

Tesco Bringing back the trolley scanners is alot better. However it is a shame the self checkouts don't have Con-tactless.

Bank on the other hand need to have people because you only go there because the cash point and on-line banking cant do it. Such as change your address or contact information and pay ancient forms of money in.

Google de-listing of BBC article 'broke UK and Euro public interest laws' - So WHY do it?

David 138

It shouldn't be up to Google anyway unless its a Google service. The request should go to the BBC or whoever holds the information. Whoever OKed this action should be removed as a European Judge. Its this kind of crap that makes the EU unpopular with member states.

REVEALED: Google's proposed indie music-killing contract terms

David 138

Why don't they just stand together an let Google remove all indie music? They could form some kind of giant label with massive bargaining power........No that would be a silly idea.

More companies should protect against exclusive\timed contracts. Spotify is already screwing the streaming service with exclusives. Soon we will have to have 20 different streaming services at £5 a month before we can listen\watch even a small selection of music. The music industry is slowly pushing itself back into piracy by making it too difficult to get hold of their music.

Re: Even better idea

My God people move along there's nothing to see here. XP is and has been for a LONG time an outdated piece of crap. Who is still using a netbook!!! they sucked with XP on them. They sucked with Linux on them, they just sucked.

We have a reasonable XP issue with my company but i don't blame Microsoft. We should have dumped XP a while ago and pushed our software houses to adapt. All of the XP machines need replacing anyway.

In three hours, Microsoft gave the Windows-verse everything it needed

David 138

I have been playing with 8.1 Update. Its alot better than 8. Never really tried 8.1. If they bring in a start menu and the ability to prevent apps hiding the task tray im sold. DX12 sounds tastie too. MS seem to be on the up.

On the PS3 vs Xbox One its too soon to tell. Xbox seems a better all round machine. But who would buy either with so few games. This Christmas is the one to watch.

Wireless Charging and NFC is what you want :)

Im not sure why any car company wastes time on a Phone specific function. I just want to throw my Nexus into its wireless charging hole and let it use NFC to set the phone to my presets, while it syncs with my stereo wirelessly. Of course the iPhone would actually have to use modern tech to be able to do this.
