Progressives didn't take science degrees. All is opinion in their 'society', reality holds no sway.

More Apple Car mutterings: Cupertino slurps more autobiz brains

Frank Bough

reality check

...the Apple car will simply be a Tesla done properly, and within 2 years every other manufacturer will be falling over themselves to copy it, badly.

TITSUP: Apple Music, App Stores, iCloud, iTunes, Radio, iBooks

So that explains it..

I was fiddling with Apple Music an hour ago and it was being monumentally slow, working fine now.

HSBC takes Twitter tongue-lashing over failure to offer Apple Pay

Re: Public transport?

It's noteworthy because it's popular, all previous attempts have failed.

Re: ublic transport?

But that's just the thing, Apple pay isn't a new payment method, it's just a digital wallet for your existing payment methods. If it doesn't work, get your leather wallet out.

Re: Licence 'rewording" required?

This is exactly what my brother did after the TV licensing people sent him a threatening letter. He'd always paid his fee up until that point.

Why is that idiot Osbo continuing with austerity when we know it doesn't work?

Frank Bough

As if...

No-one knows about economics, least of all economists. Sad that the BBC are in thrall to these people, who are nothing more that meta-analysts. Remember how much economists like Gordon Brown? Yikes.

MONSTROUS iPhone sales are CANNIBALIZING iPads, gabbles Apple CEO

Re: Showoffs

Re: Cool

I suspect iPad lifespan is significantly longer than that of an iPhone due to not being tied to an airtime contract. I find mine very useful, and will probably replace it one day, but it isn't essential like a phone or a Mac.

Re: @Rik Myslewski - "peak Apple" retraction

...because it ruins the registers credibility, that's why. Apple have performed spectacularly well throughout this entire period. Eventually they will falter, but it just makes the Reg look pathetic, and we know that this is one of the few places where you can still find journalism.

Re: This largely explains

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?

Apple about to make Apple TV WAY LESS SUCKY - report

Frank Bough

I don't get it

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.

Samsung forks 4K with Tizen tellies

Frank Bough

Re: Entertaining

...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?

Re: Astouded!!

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.
