Spokesman/Women.... they never really say anything do they. Could we rename them UselessSoundBitePerson?
oh whoopie do for you.
Re: Best get those scientists out there to do their research
What are you waffling on about? .... We minimise our impact on whales by... guess what, leaving them alone. And that includes direct and indirect. We need to look at our own species and wake up to the fact that if we carry on the way we're doing, we'll not be here very long. We've only been here "five minutes" and look at what we have destroyed, including ourselves.
yes quite, wasting your time posting on articles about OSs you don't even use. Do you watch TV programmes you don't like too? #busylifenot
So if it works for you then it must work for everyone else? Sure.
So should comedians be locked up?
You know there are two issues here:
1. The obvious is freedom of speech. And if you don't think it's an important point, think about the ramifications of no freedom of speech.
2. Those "high and mighty" "celebrities" growing a pair and ignoring what they don't like. Christ were they not called names at school? Am I not allowed to say that I think Nick Clegg is an idiot?
Sure there are a bucket loads of idiots on twitter. But it isn't against the law to be an idiot.
This is all about rich people and their PR companies trying to clamp down on the "image" they are fabricating to portray and nothing else. It isn't about anything else.
Re: Bobak Ferdowsi
Try and think of why that is, for more than a second. ;)
Lovely, but every time I'm out all I ever see are BBs
Oh the amazing "Analyst" story. This rubbish is as bent as Apple's new IFone being magically left in a bar... by accident... *cough*
It has bluetooth, sausage. Are you reading anything
Re: You would be wrong
You have far too much time on your hands
"you still use optical drives? how quaint! please give my regards to 8 years ago"
8 years ago? I assume you were criticising Apple for having it on their notebooks as of about a week ago then? ;o)
Honestly, I also bet you hate Flash but before Apple criticised it, you had no opinion on it whatsoever.
Nothing like being told what to think #priceless
Re: Tsunami of Failure, that is
And no doubt they should take advice from you.
This is iApple all over, hype the 'magical' design. Like now all their phans go on about how "their" notebooks are made of Nasa Space aluminium rather than 'creaky plastic'. Because before this line of laptops Apple never used plastic... iLOL
Are we just finding random excuses to keep Apple in the news? Guess the iPhad 3 didn't cut it after all then? ;)
Re: How is this measured?
Now we have to ask if you're being "thick"? Do you know what marketing even is? You think it's just a tv advert or a billboard poster? ;)
So you just believe everything Apple, or any other company tell you because you have no "link" or "evidence" that says otherwise then? They saw you coming ;)
Re: The truth is iPad showed us
I was shown and was so happy with my MacBook Pro. Best thing I ever did... was sell it 18 months later. There is a life outside Windows, it has very high walls and you WILL do things their way ;)
I escaped... thank goodness.
Keep your cartoon GUI that hasn't changed for years, keep it and enjoy it. Though there's a life outside too y'know ;)
He singled out Apple because the article is about Apple... duh ;)
And just because everyone else uses Foxconn, doesn't mean Apple have to. The issue of suicides and working conditions remain for ALL companies using it. If you gave a shit you be writing to someone about it rather than criticising someone for bringing it up to begin with!
This article about about tablets... was it written so the line: "an area almost completely dominated at the moment by Apple's iPad, selling in unbelievable numbers" could be inserted? When we mention cars do we talk about which car maker has sold the most? No... therefore this is just another excuse to say Apple Apple Apple...
Yes, you enjoy your little colourful apps that waste time. Meanwhile I'll be productive and not use my phone as a toy ;)
iMessenger... great idea! It will be copied by BlackBerry I'm sure. ;)
Go ahead, feel smug and download another app. Isn't there an app for feeling smug? iSmug? ;)
Jobs said anything other that the iSomething was just too big? What will the bois do if this is true? *sigh* - I know, I know... it'll be the old "It's what he would have wanted". Or maybe a few leaked stories that he mentioned it just before he died. That'll do the trick. Any excuse to make the $$$ coming in from the imprisoned disciples. Their credit cards are poised and their position is already assumed.
Using your logic of car oil/fuel. I trust you have no problem eating dogs from the RSPCA, Kittens? or humans?
Thought not.... ;)
If you're going to set an absolute at least stick to it ;)
same as humans ;) Eat you grandmother and stop whining :p
oh dear... the 'what would happen to all the animals' is so low level. It's like you're eating them for their own good.
So what's the deal with all the media then? These pathetic dribs and drabs of stories... sorry, biography adverts, get distributed and you just have to run it? What has this got to do with anything IT related Register?
oh my goodness is this ever going to stop? The poor guy is dead. I wish Apple would leave him alone and stop milking it.
ahh Henry... get your wallet out, Steve would be proud ;o)
Being good at marketing makes marketing invisible because you're thinking about the product. How can a story about staff being told to cancel holiday be 'good' marketing? Are you really excited by this story? Apple's marketing is a great comedy. I don't 'not like it', I laugh at it and enjoy mocking it :p
Irrelevant. Fact is that Apple released it, to be reported, twisted and all the rest of it. And it's lame marketing because it's now a great joke in its predictability.
You're not raining on anybody's parade. First of all your employer, not being Apple, is irrelevant. Secondly just because one party can make a "request" does not mean the recipient of the request has to comply, unless your contract specifies, which is quite unusual in itself. So therefore you'd already know about it and it wouldn't be a big deal because IF an employer specifies this, there must be a compensation package available for people with holidays booked and paid for.
However, above all of this is that Apple and media outlets reporting this nonsense what us to talk, discuss and argue about this very notion. Though if we think about it for more than perhaps 1.5 seconds we realise that this is nothing than a PR stunt. It's what Apple do, it's all about perception and creating hysteria. Which is odd given that apparently it's all and only about the products. Weird how they need (and spend $$$$) on such church like evangelism where if the products are that good they'd sell themselves. Wait for the.... we've run out of stock due to high demand chestnut too... and other such rubbish like they're selling a billion iphone 5s every .6 seconds ... Apple sources confirm.
And this is from an Apple user. Though I am looking to sell my MacBook because I can't be a part of this nonsense any longer.
I'll join you. You do the drinks and I'll bring the snacks.
Any chance they can just do normal PR without all this shullbit? Perception is a wonderful thing.
