And you MS shills are awesome!
Good grief! It's like listening to the conversation in a sixth form common room in the early eighties. Music didn't stop being good just because you gave up finding new stuff.
And how up yourself do you have to be to proclaim your favourite album is the best album ever?
Oh, hang on, I get it! This is just hilarious banter! I know, best album ever is Alphataurus by Alphataurus! (try it, just google "obscure prog rock" and pick one at random! Hillaire!)
I thought you meant "I nearly bought myself this phone" but then point 1 is about it being awkward to use for people with smaller hands than you. So what do you mean?
They've kind of done that by grabbing all the gmail logins and youtube commenters. Of course that only makes those people "Active G+ users" in the marketing gumpf, but nevertheless news agencies will parrot it when "Google+ users outnumber facebook users"....
...that you're trying to force us all to use Google+! Subscription cancelled!!!!
Actually I was totally taking the piss.
Well put! It's not ike a little Linux vulnerability means anything. When the year of the linux desktop comes, then we'll have some real security!!!
Well it'd have to be, it infected a linux box and we all know they are secure by design!
Really? I normally just wade straight into the comments.
Doesn't really adress my point, made so eloquently yet totally missed above, that Apple push udpates without using the Operators. So Apple can apply a fix, Google can fix Nexus devices, most others on Android using a manufacturer's version are stuck with the vulnerability. Do you get it now? Not sure how to make it any clearer...
The original point was that operators are slow to put out OTA updates (it's there in the title). I mentioned that Apple push updates without using the operators so it's only Androids that suffer this. So why is everyone pointing out that they know iOS users that have chosen not to upgrade? The Android users haven't got that choice if the Operators don't push (providing they're not on a Nexus device for the rest of you smartarses.) That's the point, with iOS you have a choice that a lot on Android users don't. Not often I get to type that!!!
iPhones are updated by Apple, and most devices are now on iOS7. If so then the problem of operators not updating surely only effects the Android phone in the report.
Why talk about a problem with $ourceForge (see what I did there?) when you can just make irrelevant points about your favourite baddy?
What the fuck are you on about?
And your suggestion would be what? We should shut up and bend over?
Indeed, no need to change the software, just need a magnifying glass....
Besides which the software should already be able to run on different size displays. Pretending the screen is the same size as an iPad when it isn't is not a good solution, it's a bodge. Adaptive rendering ftw!
That's fairly pointless on such a small screen, more like.
It's a "living standard"!
It's goose sauce, after all!
How is the brow beaten neighbour from "Keeping up Appearances" going to help?
This respondent thought the article was slightly amusing, but knew the comments thread would be much funnier.
Thanks messele, you're a star!
but he certainly knows how to get the indignant fanboys posting!
The article or your comment?
as a burn on you!
Just random misogynistic bullshit or what?
..do they mean "it'll render, if it fucks up it's your problem", "we're sniffing the user agent and directing you to the old 'static' html site, or "we're sniffing the user agent and just won't render"? Dropping support could mean any of these. For gmail, if it just directs you to the old html site what's the problem? It's perfectly functional.
Couldn't give a shit? Massive Amazon reviews don't write themselves. It's clear she gives a massive shit. And why does a desire for a book to succeed equate to bias towards it's subject?
Login to windows taking 30 minutes? The answer? Give everyone iPads. Really? No one thought to find out what the problem with the network was?
for more marketing messages....
Compare the games released when the ZX spectrum first came out to things that were released at the end of it's popularity. Take a look at some first gen wii games then fire up Xenoblade Chronicles. There's clearly big gains in performance that can be made by having an intimate grasp of the precise hardware you're running on.
Doesn't necessarily beat the ability to run on increasingly powerful hardware though....
...I can take a story about faking plays on Spotify and use it as an excuse to look down my nose at everyone.
My taste, like everything else in my life, is perfect.
>> But then, when you're looking at stocking your data center with systems built by someone called the Shadow, who lives someplace called the Planet of Evil and who claims to be a servant of the Black Guardian, maybe you should get a second quote. <<
We did, we tried Microsoft, Google and Sony. So we went with "the Shadow from the Planet of Evil" because at least he was upfront about it.
Butthurt fanbois posting snarky comments: check
Aww, didn't anyone queue for the latest device from your favourite manufacturer?
But yeah, Hamill is the one with all the bitterness....
Indeed. Now if only we could work out why Google don't....
>> Unfortunately it resides in crank universe and it firmly intends to stay there. <<
>> I won't even mention websites promoting it that look like something out of geocities. <<
Ah, this would be the name calling and style criticising bit of the "scientific debate". Good to see so many upvotes for this fantastic bit of reasoning.....
I believe he made a massive bang....
FFS, get a room! We've got bitching to do!!!
So you've not seen Windows 8?
with every massively overpriced device!
IMHO they should ban the use of "free" in advertising when meaning "at no extra cost"!
As far as I can tell the outlook social connector is something to integrate LinkedIn to your Outlook contact list. The article is about an iPhone app that doesn't talk to Outlook. Can you spot the difference?
The fact they're talking about an iPhone app?
From the article: But the company declined to "put a timeline on it".
That says "soon" to you? Are you a project manager?
Spooky! He lives on!
Because carrying around 6 ipads would be awkward?
Yeah, the thing is half of those folks have i devices.
If the only people who know how to copy mp3s without iTunes are register readers it's not really comparable to the experience on android or windows devices.
Well, going by the second paragraph of the article, it's "enabled" because it's "click to play" (so doesn't run until you say so). Surely more convenient than having to find the "enable java" setting, and more granular (only runs on the page you click, not all the tabs that are open).
so I'm inferring that first party cookies aren't. So why would that impact a sites behaviour? The only cookies a site sees are cookies that belong to it....
and still save a couple of hundred quid....
