Re: Sounded really promising
Re: Some sale, NOT!
Yeah, you deserve a discount. How dare they.
Re: Fragmentation, or lousy resolution and aspect ratio?
WTF? The iPad has the best aspect ratio of any tablet.
Offers an SD reader for iPad.
4x3 is better
If you want to watch movies, you're better off with a 2.35:1 ratio, but all widescreen ratios make for poor general purpose functionality.
If only you could still get 5:4 computer monitors....
Re: I can see it now
I know you already know this, but Apple (and iOS developers) manage to extract more moolah from their percentage than Android does from it's far larger percentage. Thus Apple dominate the MARKET.
Hang on, I'm on the 60Mb package and I get... 62Mb. Something's amiss with your set-up.
ESA said this: "no damage to property has been reported."
Reg says this: "Just how the ESA can guarantee no property damage mere hours after GOCE re-entered the atmosphere is anyone's guess"
Where the fuck did the guarantee come from?

come on, the astroturf industry needs the work
Re: Basically it's the best tablet available for most people
who told you they weren't?
Err, I was just in there...
...and the queue was massive.
Re: Re I'd missed your Apple bullshit for the last week
God I fucking hope so
Big Bang Theory?
Oh FFS, I used to respect this guy.
Re: Well, that's good news really...
LED illuminated screens still can't touch plasma for contrast between adjacent pixels, side by side the LCD just looks ill. Had aloof at the new big curved Samsung OLED the other day - decent picture but wasn't properly setup, five grand unfortunately.
Re: Well, that's good news really...
You should be aware that OLEDs are the standard broadcast reference monitors these days.
Still, the end of plasma is bad news, they offer tremendous pictures and large screen OLEDs aren't yet ready for primetime. Let's hope there are some bargains to be had...
Re: I wonder if..
Come on, that graph is a genuinely great work of fiction!
Re: Dear Dyson
Henry's are shit.
Re: Testing in a representative environment
My car pretty much achieves it's official, terrible, MPG numbers.
Where are Dyson's hoovers made, exactly?
Re: A can of worms..
Agreed. Dyson hoovers are terribly overpriced and poor performers. A conventional Miele cylinder type for half the price shits all over them, and the Miele's made in the EU, too.
Re: I'll give him a B- grade
Ironically, the white iPhone 5C is the purist bit of Apple industrial design in years.
Re: Curates egg performance from Cook.
Not true. Much more significant was System 7, which Microsoft copied (poorly) to make Windows 95, which changed the world.
You make less profit on the ten than on the one. Who's stupid now? Apple has been successfully fighting against commoditisation for decades, and that's why they've got $150bn in the bank.
iOS is unravelling because there's no Jobs or Forstall to push it forward. You need a single-mided twat to move forward, consensus and committee can only live up to expectations (or fail to). God help us when Ive gets his hands on OSX.
"The public does not know what is possible. We do." Akio Morita
Tim Cook does not think like this.
You know what...
...it's not Apple leaking this stuff, they are so insanely secretive that they don't even reveal new product releases to their own international subsidiaries. This is all speculation based on Chinese component chit-chat.
Well, that was worth doing.
Re: Standardised connector
That connector's been superseded for over a year now, do try and keep up.
Re: Standardised connector
You're right, but there's no reason imaginable why the EU should be meddling with the type of sockets, on our consumer electronics. Complete waste of money. EU needs to sort out its finances before pissing about in areas like this.
Hopefully the up-specced 64bit iPads.
Re: 20+ Inches of case...
Have you checked out the superslim iMacs? They're magnificently thin, I'm not sure an optical drive would fit in there.
Re: all-in-one iMac
Get with the 21st century, grandad. Optical media has been replaced by BitTorrent.
The Reg has now managed to wear right through the bottom of the barrel.
Even simpler, just use your other hand.
Re: At least with a swipe pattern
You are a mentalist.
Re: Perspective please
Bullshit, this is a quicker way to unlock your phone that can't be shoulder surfed. That's all, and we always knew that if you have a copy of the fingerprint you could get in.
If you lose your phone - no access.
If your phone is pick pocketed - no access.
Casual fraping at work - no access.
This is the purpose of the fingerprint scanner, not to defeat MI fucking 6.

Re: The proof is in the....
Apple want your money. Google want to sell you to the highest bidder. I understand the former relationship, I'll never understand the latter.
How is this news?
Samsung's entire strategy is copying Apple's products, badly.
Re: Video/Movie Industry still needs a
You just described the AppleTV - Netflix accound is paid via iTunes billing, YouTube and Vimeo both work beautifully, iTMS will sell/rent you the latest at hefty prices. Works well, but much more expensive than Torrenting.
Re: From the X Labs
Re: iPad Mini 2
I'm sure Apple will ask more for a Mini than Google do for a Nexus, but just one day using both will indicate which is better value. The Nexus 7 tablet was a massive disappointment. Constant Wi-Fi problems. Battery carnage. Piece. Of. Shit.
iPad mini, OTOH: pricy, light, quick, colourful, utterly dependable.
Re: @Ted Treen
"To generalize grossly: "right libertarians" believe in the freedom of the individual to oppress, belittle, besmirch, harm, defraud and even murder others. Their brand of "libertarian" is all about the "right" of individuals to establish and then maintain control over those around them, by force of might, force of charisma or by controlling the means of production."
This is absolute horse shit. Libertarians believe that individual freedoms are sacred, and are the inalienable property of the individual. No individual is more important than another, and each has the right to defend their property from theft, damage. An idividual's life, health, minor offspring are considered their property. Thus all disputes between individual's may be reduced to a disagreement over property.
It's a simplistic doctrine, but one with some logic.
