iPhone 6, Watch: Hate it or really hate it, Apple's now a $604.77bn biz

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.

Excellent work!

Cops baffled by riddle of CHICKEN who crossed ROAD

Peter Storm

Quantum Chicken!

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.

Lenovo posts an INCREASE in desktop PC and notebook sales

Peter Storm

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.

Samsung in Brazilian strip: Robbers snatch $6.3m in gear from plant

Peter Storm

"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.

You 'posted' a 'letter' with Outlook... No, NO, that's the MONITOR

Peter Storm

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.

E-cigarettes help you quit – but may not keep you alive

Peter Storm

Re: 'vaping' == drug paraphernalia

Equating vaping with the use of class A drugs is ridiculous.

Completely different things, a bit like "pore" and "pour".

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.

Faster Macbook Air pops out: What, a NEW Apple thing and ZERO fanfare?

Peter Storm

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?

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.

Daddy-o, you're all wet... baffled by your own kids on the web - survey

Peter Storm
Facepalm

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.

How to destroy a brand-new Samsung laptop: Boot Linux on it

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.

Fans' loyalty questioned as iPhone popularity plummets

Peter Storm

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.
