Re: Only in Japan though - until Sept 2013?
Only if it can produce 1.21 gigawatts.
A message to the people of Finland
Elect a new PM. This one's a bit of a dick.
Re: Why wait?
"Who waits for the last minute to buy a new disc" Me, when I notice it's the first day of the month and suddenly think "Shit! I haven't taxed the bloody car yet".
"iPhone 6 Plus bending"
It's just the new Apple Bananaphone
Re: So what's the actual problem?
"However, being transported in a user's pocket is a normal use-case for a phone."
Not, I would argue, if you're a big fat bastard and you sit on it.
Re: So what's the actual problem?
Of course it must be Apple's fault. My daughter ran over her iPad in her Volkswagen Passat estate loaded with gear and the BLOODY SCREEN CRACKED! It still went on working fine though, but hey, c'mon Apple, people drive over their i devices every day surely.
Re: Only one one the list
Dead right about Aston Martin, especially the convertibles. My boss has one and he'd make Piers Morgan look cool.
A real wankermobile.
Edit: Unless it's a classic like a DB5 or similar of course.
Re: love em or hate em
That maybe true, but making that 10 grand probably consisted of doing next to fuck all.
Re: Solution or problem ?
That's probably the highest ever percentage use of the word "snark" in written statement.

A quantum chicken would have both crossed the road and not crossed the road therefore eliminating the need for crossing at all as it would be on both sides at once and on neither side. There was no sign of it when the police arrived because of the observer effect, as as any fule kno.
This is true. A couple of weeks ago I had to buy in another new PC for our company. Usually I go for HP workstations but everything that didn't come with the Windows 8 abomination was hugely over specced (and priced). Had a choice with Lenovos with Win 7 pro loaded. Seems like a good solid PC too.
Re: Mind the Exogorth
That's not all they'll need to look out for.
Re: No, thanks
Meet the new boss same as the old boss.
Ah yes I remember those coke bottle and milk bottle phones. Made a bit of a bulge in the pocket but the milk bottle phone was dead handy if you got into a punch up.
"the loot might be worth up to $36m, Samsung put the price much lower at $6.3m"
$6.3m manufacturing cost price. $36m selling price.
A couple of months ago I had a call from someone in our upstairs offices. "My computer won't come back to life. I've tried moving the mouse and pressing keys but the screen just stays blank".
Once I turned his monitor back on it was just fine.
Re: 'vaping' == drug paraphernalia
Equating vaping with the use of class A drugs is ridiculous.
Completely different things, a bit like "pore" and "pour".
Perhaps he misread it
when it asked him to insert his pin...
Re: Don't worry
The last Greenpeace person I heard on the TV was one of the ones the Russians had banged up for a while. He was going on about trying to stop them "drilling in the artic". Though why he was so worried about them drilling holes in a truck wasn't made clear.
Re: Star Trek Replicators
I'll see you on the holodeck.
I live just a few miles outside Bristol, It's the only place that fills me with dread at the thought of having to drive there.
Without any fanfare
"Without any fanfare yesterday, Cupertino started touting the new super duper lightweight 'puter."
"It comes complete with a slightly faster processor and, well, not much else."
Just a wild guess here, but maybe the second line kinda explains the lack of fanfare maybe?
Nod's as good as a wink
to a blind bat
Still, it's nice to know there's something for everyone on the interwebs.
Even those with an over inflated sense of their own importance and the sycophants who grovel before them.
My boss always used to have BMWs and he's a complete wanker, but this time he's got himself a Range Rover. It is a "Sport" though, so he's not really stepping out of character.

"If you delete someone's site by accident?"
Ah, so that's what happened to the NATO site
Re: Good point
Well I suppose we already have the Jesus phone, so I suppose this would be the Antichrist phone.
"another service other than Flickr for sharing photos"!
I would recommend having a look at ipernity.
Re: Yeah, right
Yeah, those bloody weasels.
Yes, but probably not for very long if it's made by Samsung
but then so does Linux
Re: Personally i think...
Have you been to many music festivals lately? A lot of the people there are way older than him, and that includes the performers too.

"that lets everyone know you’re having a meeting, but not what you’re talking about – lip reading (and laser beams picking up vibrations from the windows) notwithstanding"
Just make sure HAL isn't watching you.

Made my day, thanks.
Re: Vogue has never been stylish
"Also, WTF is Yahoo! I've never seen it"
It's the company that bought flickr and have been doing their level best to completely fuck it up ever since.
Completely agree about Vogue btw. Utter garbage.
You only have to look at Samsung gear
and Putin implied just that in in his statement.
I love the smell of troll bait in the morning!
If only there were some sort of engine for searching for the meanings of all these acronyms that that these young beatniks are employing. Somewhere on the interweb that you could type these things in and with the mere press of a key, be presented with answers and meanings for all things.
Maybe in the future this will be possible.
"stupid as joe public outside that relm"
Made my day.
Twas worth reading
just for the word "dandled".
Crikey! So all the men in your office are gay then?
How true. It's the difference between perceived quality and actual quality.
People buy French cars because they think they're good, when in actual fact they're total junk.
Everybody remember where we parked
Re: Yeah, but what if Hitler appears live, opening the Olympics?
He already did...in 1936.
"England v England. You don't care who wins"
At least, being England and not Scotland, we'd win something.
Re: I expected to read a review....
Well if I were you, I wouldn't buy one then eh?
I think Apple's glory days may be over unless...
they can come up with something new and different. A "must have" new product. As with the original iPhone or the iPad.
I'm no Apple fanboi and I only got my 3GS a few years ago purely because the Ordinance Survey map app I wanted was only available on iOS at the time. I must say that it has been a really good piece of kit (apart from the battery life).
I only decided to replace it because my daughter's phone was on its last legs and her MP3 player had died.
When I looked at the iPhone 5, I just wasn't that impressed. I mean it looks nice and I'm sure it performs well, but would have cost me a fair bit extra on my contract for doing more or less exactly what my old phone did, just a bit quicker.
In the end I got a 4GS. Hardly any difference in spec from the 5, and less money a month on my contract.
Apple need to be careful and not rest on their laurels. I'm thinking of another fruit based company who had a "must have" mobile product a little while back.
