Have Rolex managed to build a watch that can keep time yet?
...and I thank God for it every day. I don't have to spend my spare time roleplay gaming!
Who cares? Is someone with a large collection of hand-painted Orc models keeping a spreadsheet?
Nice films though, aren't they? I could almost see the point...
You just tap one of the cultists on the shoulder and they whip out their iPhone and charge your card. Even easier if you use your iTunes account. No queuing, no bullshit. Receipt gets emailed to you, you just walk off with you iDevice or whatever.
There is no step three, remember?
Those Aboriginal Americans just died of boredom, I suppose?
2007 called, it wants its anti-Apple FUD back.
Because their internet connection is the cheapest and easiest way to root NRK yet devised.
Apple already has a streaming service, and it's the best of the bunch. The problem is that it is eye-wateringly expensive. If Apple want to bring down prices, I'm all for it, if they want me to pay £3 for a TV show, then they're going nowhere.
That would make some sense if they didn't sell the same thing for 300
...could it run flame?
Elysium is a fucking great movie!
A Casio is more accurate.
People who walk around with thousands of pounds worth of jewellery on are desperately trying to prove something.
Give quiche a chance.
...assuming that the whole process of remastering Avatar for beyond rec709 and beyond HD takes place, and is then made available on a suitably high-band delivery mechanism. I'm not sure there's enough appetite out there to move on from HD. Who will buy 4k discs when SD and HD disc sales are in free fall?
El Dorado, no less.
To spy on them you have to be able to spy on us as we all use the same technology. It's really simple. I'm amazed at the disbelief being expressed here, especially as this is a pretty tech literate audience. How was Bletchley Park right and this wrong?
Snowden is a fucking prick. NSA and GCHQ are doing exactly what I'd expect them to do. They are spies, what does everyone think they did? Russia and China are loving this shit.
Why let any kind of sense get in the way of a cash juggernaut?
I've got a broken 80GB Classic (failed HDD, natch), if the drive's IDE, could I just swap in a big CF card?
can run at at a wide range of output resolutions and frame rates.
compared to all the money pissed away on blackberry servers, windows licences and fucking Lorenzo over the years. Big woop.
Nice to see Microsoft AstroTurf is still alive and kicking. It's comforting that some things never change.
As soon as you connect to the Internet,your security is fucked. Get a grip, at least with Apple you have some consumer rights because you paid for their services.
this is surely required for Continuity to work efficiently?
Convenience. iTunes has a big catalogue, good artwork, booklets etc and is quick and easy to pay for. Expensive, certainly, but very functional. Sound quality is decent, no DRM. I've bought a few things on iTunes over the years though I generally torrent or buy CDs. Spotify is the thing that's harming iTunes revenues, playlist sharing is ubiquitous.
You can get excellent chocolate in Tesco. How much more ubiquitous do you want?
what's difficult to understand about FASTER, SAME PRICE?
Sure, but Alu doesn't spring in the same way steel or ti do, and that's what this phone case needs to do. Apple use a 'unibody' construction technique where they take a solid piece of Alu and mill it down to spec. Great for thermal performance, recyclability et al but not strong or springy in extremis.
Not too clever at making money.
It certainly out performed the iPhone, but it did distort somewhat. The whole thing twisted about its long axis. Apple were foolish to abandon stainless steel, the 4 and 4s can really take a licking.
Apple have really fucked up here.
this will inevitably go to court and Apple will inevitably climb down. Can you imagine how many of these things will be totally borked after a few months in the wild? Apple should start refunding now to prevent a bigger PR disaster.
Surely a neater solution would have been to consider the display comprising 3 x 640 x 960 or 1920 x 960 with a 120 pixel height increase? Especially as the display is implicitly landscape in nature.
Still, Apple used to have a constant dpi system for their computer monitors too and had to give that up in the fullness of time.
...any connected device included DV cams, audio hubs and external disks. Huge security risks, all.
Yes, all of those are losing money on their Android phones.
How is Apple similar, again?
Geeks aren't sophisticated enough to understand that, and astroturfers know only too well.
iOS can do various things with BT, but Apple keep a tight rein on it to prevent in becoming a security issue. Apple also has a history of adopting the latest BT tech first.
Have you heard of the Internet? That's what the i part of iPhone stands for! Fun fact, there.
They are now out of business, of course, while Mac sales keep edging up.
If it's so great why doesn't anyone want it?
Cox has done some great work. Wonders of Life was outstanding.
...but I'd hardly hold it up as an example of UI brilliance. If only Apple would free the bloody thing we might get some innovative apps on there.
4:3 is just as superior in the 21st century as it was in the 20th
Google fuck with Apple apps all the time - just try using gmail via IMAP from Mail.
On balance, it has to be Shoreditch.
If you want a job, Slough is one of the best places to live in the UK. Simple. If other towns followed Slough's example the IK would be a more enterprising and wealthier place.
Bullshit. Smartphones in Europe were blown away by the iPhone because it was a massively better product.
…but it IS falling in cost - you get more compute performance, a better camera, superior radio tech and a bigger screen for the same money.
