Re: This story does not support the "nothing to see here" argument
Doug... The HTC is not comparable, hence me not comparing it. The Note is not notorious for being bent in people's pockets. The iPhone 6 Plus is. The figures clearly show that Apple dropped the ball on this - in real world use, their design falls below a reasonable standard of robustness.
I'm no hater. I have Android and iPhone, and I'm buying WinPhone 8.1 next week despite having had only negative experience with WinPhone 7.
This story does not support the "nothing to see here" argument
The numbers show that the iPhone 6 Plus is only 60% as resilient as the comparable Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
So, Apple HAVE fucked up.
And so have the Consumer Reporters

Most things prefixed with 'mobile' are too large to fit in a pocket. In fact, they're too large to carry. And they often have their own propulsion systems.

Mobile phone -ORLY?
There's a word for things you can carry. Carryable. But no, I mean 'portable'.
Bananagate - oh my!
Seriously, though - I do not believe these iPhoners are using their front pockets. Nobody except me does that. Fact.
I use my front pocket for phones. Trying to get other people to follow suit (e.g. when they've cracked their phone screen (again)) is IMPOSSIBLE.
If they are using their front pockets, someone sitting on their lap is going to apply enough force to bend the 6+
Nice article - thanks
Precisely what I wanted to know about glass and the 'in use' photos completed the picture. I look forward to being able to sleep at night with that out of the way.
a) Being told I can't watch it by the police is pathetic and erodes the respect I have for the boys n girls in blue. The crime is the murder, not the insensitive sharing of a video of the murder.
b) I will not watch a video of someone being tortured/killed. For me, it's a respect thing. By watching it, I'm collaborating in the dehumanisation of the victim and fulfilling the murderers' wishes. If that's hard to get your head round, say it's a video of someone you know being raped. How could you watch that? How could you share it?
Imho, the only valid/moral reason to submit to watching this grotesque stuff is if you're in the business of taking names and doling out smackdown justice.
The companies doing this are doing it to your dear old mum and your friends and neighbours - people you care about and can't be there to protect. These companies are conning your granny and your kids and your spouse. They're wheedling and tricking and they don't ever stop, even when the computer can't cope any more and then there's the pain of fixing or the expense of replacing the computer.
Who would do that?
When Foxconn suicides was the News, they had 1,000,000 employees. With that many employees, I calculated that their HR department would be statistically likely to be handling suicide instances ALL THE TIME. If they weren't, then that'd be the anomaly.
So long ago, I can't remember the numbers.
Thirst is commonly felt as hunger. I am in the habit of drinking first to see if the hunger goes away.
Re: Identity Crisis
This is actually exactly what I want.
I can trade up my 1600x900 17" lappie, my ageing S2 Android phone and my wonderful ASUS TF201 tablet w/ keyboard into this machine.

I have the same trackball, only a year or two old shirley? And that's the Antec-1200 case, I think. 12 bays.. I have the 900 with 9 bays, Most aweseome case for air cooling.

Is the Galaxy Tab still being offered for sale? it must be 2yrs old by now
so which banks? who should be (re)checking statements? I am too lazy to search. Or check.
Gutted that new Chrome on my transformer prime android doesn't work properly. Keep having to bin it and open original browser
Nice price point
I have the Prime (love it) and might easily have gone for this instead if it were out in time.
That's the funniest thing I've read all day. 100% style.

You're confusing me with the blurring of boundaries.

So what is it?
I'm confused. How is this demonstrating spooky entanglement when they're connected by optical fibre?
funny thing happened on the way home
I had to drive home on my familiar route 2hrs in the dark, and just to be different, I put my smartphone's satnav on just to keep me entertained.
I missed my junction.
My cash is waiting for someone to release current state-of-the-art technology onto the consumer market.
Asus, tied into a deal whereby PC World/ Curry's withhold Transformer 2s from the market until they've sold all their Transformer 1s... And now I won't buy the T2 because it's past its sell-by date. The Slider was great but also withheld until it was OVER A YEAR OLD. What the heck!
Samsung must try harder, too. My phone trumps the Tab on all but size, and some of the places it trumps it are in pure performance terms. I'm not buying it.
Take a leap of faith and give us the good stuff before it goes bad.

That'll only happen if one balloon by itself is unable to continue to climb after the first balloon bursts.

You'd willingly bring into the world a pretty-much-human circus freak who wasn't created in love, or gestated within a family or expected with anything more homely than mawkish and morbid scientific and tabloid curiosity? You're going to Scientist Hell!
Where do I buy this stuff from?
I posted yesteday asking for a website to buy this software and my post was 'disappeared'.
A party atmos breaks out at Vulture Central
As you aren't going to get slapped for that recent data fuckup ;)
Fire off our landfill rubbish to MArs with these worms and let them create a biosphere. Something like that. Job done.
The price un-excites me. I was excited but now I'm cured. Especially with the the Transformer 2 arriving presently with quadcore. This thing was more or less ready at the other end of the year; it's not cutting edge anymore so the price is wrong. I mean, my phone is faster.
The GUYS could insist on using condoms
not quite on topic but
do I have to worry about spontaneous trouser fires weeks after dropping my phone?
I'm a Valve/Steam customer and tbh I don't know if I have a card registered or not. Someone mentioned PayPal - I probably pay with that.
My problem is that I've been googling for a few minutes without turning up any Valve or Steam sites for me to login to. I'd be embarrassed if I wasn't fine blaming Google's ranking engine.
It's hard to complain on Facebook because you first have to "Like" the company you despise. It's the same with getting in touch with politicians that way.

Just jumped from gorgeous iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S2
And no regrets. The S2 is amazing.
16GB to the HTC Sensation's 8GB
Huge screen, but very thin and significantly (i.e. very noticeably) lighter than other, smaller androids and any iPhone
Side-by-side with an iPhone 4, the iPhone screen is pitiable. Owner of said iPhone is now quite de-smugged.
As an aside, it's a joy to have the freedom to mess around writing apps for my phone (even ON my phone in a choice of languages!!!11) without being tied to a type of host computer.
I overheard in Phones4u that 40% of all their sales are S2s at the moment.
The only way I prefer the iPhone is the keyboard, and that may just be because I'm accustomed to it. When it was new, I was mis-typing everything.
And here's something else. On the basis of this phone, I'd whole-heartedly recommend a Samsung Galaxy Tab over an iPad. And that's a significant internal shift on my part, I can tell you!
Well done Samsung.
