'Leaked' iPhone 6 pics will make cool fanbois WEEP - it's a PHABLET

Phablet?

What if I told you they asked a small child to hold up that back cover to make it look bigger? It's going to be yet another 4" model from Apple for 2014.

Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 3: HOT CURVES – the 'gold grill' of smartphone bling

Re: Region Locked!

Google Translate mangled the phone list. The Galaxy S2 is not included and neither is the original Note but Note 2 is.

Fresh news that Samsung will be region-locking the Note 3. This does also include the Galaxy Note, S2, S3, S4 and S4 mini produced at the end of July 2013 or later.

Apple: 27-inch iMac won't ship until next year

abubasim

Re: @JDX

Does B&O intentionally make their equipment difficult to service by gluing the case shut?

I have the late 2009 21.5" iMac. This model has it's display cover fixed with magnets so no need for a heat gun to open it, and considering this I will not be 'upgrading' to a new iMac.

Sharp cuts exFAT deal with Microsoft for Android mobes

SGS3?

You didn't list Samsung as a lIcensee of ExFAT. The Galaxy S3 is at the moment the only Android phone on the market with support for this 'filing system'.

Re: Out of curiosity ...

The correct answer is yes, but not during daytime when you're supposed to fast. Food and sex is not allowed from sunrise to sunset.

Re: @Mr Tumnus

I visited London last year and stayed in a small hotel in the city centre. The food they served was some of the best I've eaten, at least that year.

Hands on with the Apple iPad 3

abubasim
Facepalm

"Note that there’s no flash on this camera, so deploying it for stills or video is best suited to brightly lit situations."

A flash? You mean a LED lamp - and think it would help? Unless it has a magnificent Xenon flash, you better bring along a proper camera instead of relying on that toy most phones and tablets are equipped with today. Even at 5MP, the iPad 3's camera is best suited for the quick snaps people post on their Facebook walls.

41-megapixel MONSTER mobe shutters Nokia knockers

Camera App Improved?

I have the N8. It shoots excellent photos, in fact slightly better than my Canon PowerShot S90 in full auto mode. But the camera app is a pain so it could not replace the S90. It doesn't remember previously saved settings, so if I close the app and open later again, 10-20 seconds just to get ISO, sharpening, white balance, etc in place and what I wanted to shoot may already be gone. Four screen taps just to set sharpening. Nokia's developers have never heard of 'easy of use'.

Stallman: Jobs exerted 'malign influence' on computing

Facepalm

Foot in mouth?

Stallman saying he's glad Jobs is gone. Lots of cheers of Apple haters. But probably not the best way to promote free software.

For Geeks Only

He may be correct but he doesn't speak for the vast majority of Apple users. Most users do not care about the 'walled garden'. They only care about their devices working properly.

Anyone old enough to remember the UNIX wars?

World War UNIX: AIX vs SunOS vs ULTRIX vs HP-UX. (AIX won.)

Around the same time were also the Commodore vs Atari war. (Commodore won.)

Gartner = Fanboys?

Philips GoGear Muse 3 PMP

abubasim

"Any portable media player has to contend with the entire smartphone market. If you don’t mind running down the battery, mobiles can be as good as dedicated players. "

That depends on the smartphone. If the audio and video players in it doesn't remember where you stopped playing a audiobook, podcast or movie last time and always starts at the beginning, then a PMP is better.

No MeeGo...

In answer to my own answer, Nokia announced today that the N900 will not receive MeeGo. Te he...

Come again?

And how is the N900 destroying the competition? I sold my 3GS after getting an offer I couldn't refuse. For the money I bought two Nokia phones: N900 and E72. Pure garbage both of them. Do I regret selling my iPhone? Almost as much as buying these two turds.

Hardware-wise the N900 isn't too bad. It's the software that stinks. And the lack of apps. How many are there in Ovi? Are the fingers on your hands still enough to count them or do you need to remove your socks also? And the lack of updates. Will the N900 receive the MeeGo OS or will Nokia drop the N900 as soon as PR1.2 is out? Is this the reason for the delay of the release of PR1.2? Nokia wants it to be perfect so they don't have to bother with the device anymore and can focus all their resources on the N900 successor?

Completely unusable as a business device due to the lack of a usable office suite that allows creating and editing office documents. (I tried OpenOffice under Easy Debian. Almost completely unusable. Takes an eternity to launch and then good luck maneuvering the UI using your fingers... HA!)

Windows Phone 7 blocks out popular HTC model, blames buttons

abubasim

Business as usual for WM phone owners

Anyone care to guess what impact this will have on the sales of the Windows Mobile phones currently available on the market?

Anyway, this is hardly surprising. WM phones receive very updates, if any at all, before support being dropped. The view from HTC and other WM phone makers have been that if you want new functionality then buy a new phone.

Downgrade not possible with the 3GS!

Please note that downgrading as mentioned by A. Coward above can only be done with the older 2G/3G models.

I sure miss tethering on my officially unlocked 3GS. My iPhone will go back into the box until Apple fixes this.
