Those that can't teach, teach Gym (Woody Allen)
A bit off topic perhaps - but on the subject of design and old Apple products I saw a gold/brown iMac G4 in an opticians the other day - looked like something out of "Brazil" - I kinda liked it! i agree with the author otherwise
Re: HTC One Black - no stock
One thing I've noticed recently is that people with iPhone 5's DON'T appear to be proudly displaying them around - an interesting development, if you ask me.
Hang on ...
Why not wait a few hours and report on the real figures, good or bad?
Re: LG can do better out of this
Ah, but a 'Retina Screen' isn't a retina screen unless it's on an Apple product
Re: lack of innovation
I think you'll find IBM are still none-too-shabby in terms of market value .....
No Apple for me, but ...
I can understand people who don't want the hassle of changing eco-systems - sure, you can buy apps again quite cheaply, but you've got calendar, iTunes in your cloud and the rest, so if you are offered another Apple then why not? Still, unless your contract's up and your next iPhone is free or at least cheap, then why bother at all for the small improvement?
I like Samsung for all the usual reasons mentioned (and I'm also a stickler for the inclusion of a good old-fashioned FM radio as well), and a jump from Galaxy to Galaxy S3 was well worth it, but maybe not next time - how much better is the S4 seriously? I had an issue with my original galaxy - drove to a service centre and it was fixed while I waited (it was a software hang rather than hardware to be fair).
... roughly akin to an Office 265 for Creative Suite
Misprint - or perhaps not?
RT or Not RT
There's no doubt that I'd prefer the full Windows 8 on a tablet - cum laptop combo rather than RT. But the battery life just isn't good enough for me. Sure, a normal ultrabook (windows or Mac) has less life than a tablet / i-thing, so a full windows tablet is no worse than these.
But still, I want tablet battery life with laptop capability. Too much to ask at present I guess
Re: Waterproof means no user changeable battery.
"...standardisation of connectors to two types- Micro USB and Apple" - the standard here is Micro USB !
I assume that the smaller number of searches around Apple phones may be because Apple users know what they want for their next phone (i.e. what Apple gives them, regardless), whereas for Android there's a lot more choice - and perhaps their potential owners like to research and be well informed
"free applications are five times more likely to track user location and a whopping 314 per cent more likely to access user address books"
Five times more likely is more whopping likely than 314 percent more likely!
Re: Still waiting for a candybar phone with WiFi-3G bridge
Agreed, this is the missing device I'd buy that would give WiFi (or bluetooth) 3G connectivity to a tablet / Notebook / Kindle, but be little more than a caller / texter otherwise.
Got Mine Through
I got an update today - just an unsolicited pop-up message saying do I want to download Samsung Update. Took a few seconds. I'd already tested my S3 yesterday and it seemed ok then TBH
I hate the iPhone with a passion - but even I was embarrassed reading this
Re: Would you like a Phone with that battery, sir?
It looks big yes, but the capacity seems less that the squat battery in my S3 (apparently 7.98 Wh)
In 50 days time, you can have a news item saying they have only 50 days to go - and they are boning up even harder
Easy there - take a chill pill - life goes on!
I am constantly getting ads on my Andriod apps - but honestly - who reads them eh? It's just a slightly annoying coloured band in the corner. I don't understand how advertisers think we're going to respond to these things.
I would imagine a (relative) reduction in the number of iPhones in circulation would please their owners - they are hardly 'exclusive' devices at the moment. I can't get away from the damn things. A larger variety of Android (or Windows Mobile) devices will make the pub a more interesting place at least.
Not so pricey?
I'm one of the small percentage on a SE phone (W995). I get 500Mb a month for £5 on Orange - not such a bad deal, so that takes me up to £20 a month on contract. The screen's fine for headlines etc., and the rest of the traffic's mainly email and Google map downloads.
