Spring launch for Apple OLED TV with Siri, says retail mole

Facepalm

Of course it'll make money!

Fanbois will be falling over themselves to get hold of one of these, even if it means re-mortgaging their homes!

Afterall, it'll have that logo!

Fake, dodgy model

Surely this has to be fake? The picture in the New York Times shows a very dodgy looking model.

The join between the body and the wing is super sloppy. Seriously doubt Lockheed are that poor at nailing one of these things together.

And the fact that the underside isn't shown just adds to the dubious nature of this PR stunt.

Zuckerberg: the iPad 'is not mobile'

Jobs Horns

Exactly so

Did not Jobs, at the launch, say that the iPad was the best web browsing experience available?

Therefore it shouldn't need an app.

Interesting article

Extremely well written article. Very balanced and a great comentary on what is happening with the muddying of HTML5.

@WilliamLondon - Well you've definately lost your cool haven't you? You've really missed the point.

You cannot preach about how wonderful and open a technology is and then use it in a completely closed way. If Jobs was really intersested in openness (the shear though of that is a joke) he would have created a showcase for HTML5 that worked on all HTML5 compliant browsers.

But even then he is highlighting selective features of a yet unfinished specification in order to attack an existing technology that he has a personal problem with.

Let's get back to DOS!

Fabulous, let's get rid of all those nice graphics, the fun interaction, all those WEB2.0 features, the jQuery etc... Yep, we've spent years making the web capable of some amazing things but absolutely, let's go back to the old days. Why stop here? Why no go back to the lovely green glowing text on a black background?

RSD - please get a sense of humour

Come on, he says cult three times, hardly an offence. And if anyone or any company is a cult in the IT world, it's Apple and its fans.

If you want straight dull reporting, why are you reading ElReg?

Microsoft howls as Google turns IE into Chrome

WTF?

It's just a tool, get a life!

You lot who claim one browser is so much better than the others make me laugh. I use all the major browsers and they all have their failings.

Browsers are just tools (or maybe you lot are), they all behave very much the same, pick one you like, use it and shut up!

But please don't pretend your browser is the saviour of the internet.
