re: I'm surprised they even need 1 game to break even.
I think they're scared of another 3DS price drop debacle so they're actually selling wii Us at just under cost. Whether that'll save from having to drop the price is another matter...
Re: As we wave a fond farewell to Nintendo
Did you just copy that from a six year old wii thread? Sounds familiar...
i wonder if sony will allow people to use a vita in the same way?
They certainly have plans for that. But MS have a better plan, allowing touch screen phones to take the place of the game pad. Neither option has the "100% of the installed base" guarantee that you get with a wii U and pad. Still, if wii U is a success expect ps4 and 720 to get a pad controller about one year into their respective lives. And hope they don't go the way of Kinect and Move....
Apple isn't "using the [patent] system" because IT ISN'T A PATENT
You know, the best way of stopping all this confusion, would be to stop using the word Patent in reference to a registered design. It's not stupid to read the phrase "design patent" and assume it's a patent, it is stupid to call something a "design patent" when it isn't a patent.
Re: They should buy a Samsung S3 ...
So are you paid by Samsung for that comment or does the money come directly from Google?
Re:their free versions are just ad enabled which can be removed
Yeah, wouldn't want some plebby engineer getting .005p every time you use the app they wrote.
Re: There's good bits and not so good bits.
So not like the Curate's egg at all then.
both new Lumias are a curate's egg
The curate's egg was off. Despite what he said there are no good bits of a bad egg, the curate in the story is just being obsequious when he says some bits of the egg are good.
So do you really mean "these phones are totally shit but we don't want to say so"?
Re: You seem to be mistaking "things I like" and "high-quality music"
No, I'm not. There is an intersect between those two groups but I'm quite clear on the fact that a lot of the music I like isn't "high quality" in terms of production or construction. In fact "quality" is not really something I take into account when listening to music.
frank ly and Sean Timarco Baggaley were implying there was no way KPop could be of a high quality. I disagree and think that, objectively, Kpop songwriting, production and promotion are all of a high quality.
Also, in a youtube style, KPOP > JPOP!
Re: Ummm, ..
And presumably you're basing that opinion on a good understanding of Korean pop music? Or just a dislike for western pop music?
If you don't like pop music you won't like kpop. If you like pop music and can get over not understanding most of the words kpop is probably the best pop on the planet...
Re: What you're saying is that RIM still makes a good phone.
Oh right, you read the first paragraph and then posted. All the words after that bit you posted are about BB10.
You are right about RIM making phones though. Well done. No really, well done.
Re: What you're saying is that RIM still makes a good phone.
Did we just read the same article? The one I read was about BB 10 the OS, didn't really mention the device it runs on....
Do you seriously believe that or are you just trolling?
Re: "But customers need choice, they want to be able to try products that work alongside Apple."
Re: Attorney's eyes only = "samsung"
It's about the sales injunction, not the level of payment. Apple want to keep an injunction that stops Samsung selling products. They claim that the patents are for stuff that Samsung shouldn't be allowed to do irrespective of what they pay Apple. If Apple allow HTC to pay to use those patents but not Samsung then it's relevant to the injunction as it exposes the lie in Apple's claim that they're not prepared to license those patents. I think....
Re: A WHAT??
Can we be clear though, this is in no way similar to Google pushing updates to it's Nexus tablets all the time. That's not Patch Tuesday, that's update any day and totally different. Microsoft keeping things updated is bollocks cos it should've been finished before launch. Google keeping things updated is progress!
Re: He killed Flash
If someone could tell the internet that'd be lovely.
>> What exactly is wrong with a page aggregating data relevant to two connections in a social network? <<
The fact you ask that question, and the way you worded it, makes me think that human interaction isn't your strong point.
Re:The dick:tits ratio is not what I would like it to be
Well you've come to the right place, we have both in abundance.
Re: It's just a stupid file transfer app
It's possible to share stuff on the internet in all kinds of ways. An app that facilitates something by making it incredibly easy to do is likely to increase the number of people doing it. Those who don't have the technical ability to use the more complex methods of sharing can still download an app and use it. How many teens would go through the steps needed to share pictures using ftp?
It's an app with as age restriction of over 12 designed for sending images that you want to keep private. And by the sound of it the images sent are hosted on a server owned by the app publisher. That doesn't sound dodgy to you? You don't think that's any dodgier than any other ftp site?
>>Referring to it as a "22in tablet" is just silly: as Chromebooks have ably demonstrated, just because a computer runs Android doesn't mean it's a toy.<<
Chromebooks don't run android, they run Chrome OS. It's not the same thing.
Re: Steve I, you don't know about your own life
Steve, it's clear from the posts on here that you know nothing about your own life. How dare you come on here with your "opinions", it's clear that you can't have worked on pcs properly if you've chosen to use macs, there is no way the experience on Windows could ever drive anyone to prefer another OS.
I trust you will now stop this charade of "having an opinion" and "expressing it reasonably", at least until you get the correct opinions and start being a bit more mouthy.
Re: Worth it to me.
Wow, well done Steve I. The only poster on here with something good to say about this laptop and the integrity to put a name to his post.

Actually, never mind that, what the fuck is "Jeopardy: Downs syndrome edition." supposed to mean?
Re: It's just irritating and childish
An ancient plot device has awoken....
Re: you misread.
Hey, don't blame me for your crap sentence construction! What I did was read the words you've written. I know you meant to say "I get an inferior experience with Windows 8 than with Windows 7" but that's not what you said. You said "I get an inferior experience from windows 7". Those words in that order mean that Windows 7 gives you an inferior experience. You should have used "compared to" instead of "from".
Re: I get an inferior experience from Windows 7.
Then upgrade to windows 8!
Because they found out about this after the verdict. Though apparently apple knew beforehand and despite legal precedent kept quiet about it... Hey, just joining in the "conjecture is fact" feel of this thread!
Re: With or without him I'd expect the same result.
Yeah, have faith in the "good ole boys"...
Re: Jelly bean is like your little brother.
An irritating arse that steals and breaks your stuff and goes crying to mum if you don't do what he wants? Great.
Well sounds like you brought the wrong device and should have taken a little more care when deciding what to buy. The fact other people don't have your requirements means that an iPhone can still be the perfect device for them. Maybe you should concentrate on sorting yourself out before you start sneering at others who are happy with their choices. You're the one who's spent a fortune on a device that doesn't satisfy your requirements.
Re: It is truly amazing...
If Apple let you do all the things you want to then that's not much of an issue... It's a consumer device.
@ Dave 126
I didn't read the post as comparing apple products to 70's British cars, I thought it was saying both had the same focus on "clever" over-engineering rather than viability and practicality. If Foxconn are saying iPhones are too tricky to make then that does imply Apple didn't engineer it sensibly.
Re: How is this different from any other large company.
It's not, and I never claimed it was. I'm not the deluded internet shill going on about how "good" people are giving their hearts and minds to Google. I'm saying that Google don't do things for the benefit of humanity, they are the same as any other large company.
Is that clear now?
Re: Winning the hearts and minds of good people all over the world.
No, they're not. They're winning the hearts and minds of those stupid enough to give their hearts and minds to a mega advertising corporation. Google really don't give a fuck as long as the cash keeps coming in, believe it or not...
Be interesting to see how many seniors fall on their swords for this...
I'm guessing none.
Re: but never was it always thus.
Downvoted! Awesome! Still, never was it always thus I guess...
but never was it always thus.
What terrible grammar.
no way it deserves a score of 70%
I'm confused. Does a "dimention of functionality no other tablet has" make it better than 70% or worse?
Shit apple pad mini?
Well it got a good review on here so it can't be that shit!
This article was just a puff piece designed to OUTRAGE sensible Android users and drive us into a posting FRENZY! How STUPID do you think WE are? Like we're going to KEEP falling for that, no matter how often you do it!!!!
(disclaimer: I haven't actually used an ipad mini, nexus 7 or any small form factor tablet.)
