Re: If anything
"Sure, you can connect a PC up to these bits of kit, but them you have to factor in keeping a PC in the living room."
Forget childish games, but I've used a PC the the living room for over a decade! How else can I use the PC's functionality whilst connected to both the big screen and the monitor?
"Atari founder Nolan Bushnell has doubts over the long-term success of the Nintendo Wii U, after admitting he doesn't get the tablet-controlled console."
And if a tech head doesn't get it, the absolutely thick as pigs sh te consumers won't have a clue, or the brain cells to investigate.
Tweeters are "Luddite unstreet friends".
Twitter! Bollox! It's rubbish, conceived for and used by the brain dead.
Facebook is for chavvy Jeremy Kyle wanna be's.
Prefect for 90% of british citizens then.
"Local fondleslab fans face fortnight of envy"
Envy? Of what?
Typical Lawyer! Lowlife.
lazy devs? Surprise!
" scruffy Android Marketplace "
Fannybois, they're a right bunch of fannys.
Marketplace is better than the shitty old app store, and no crappy iTunes bollox!
"The second dodgy program, NFC for iPhone 5, cost $0.99 (£0.69) and promised to enable Near-Field Communications support - useful for making wireless payments - in the smartmobe."
So all those fannybois who dismissed NFC in competitors phones as a fad, s*ck it! Your brethern seem to think otherwise!
"MacBook Air’s “dominant market share" becuase titheads keep banging on with the same old shite like "Asus and Lenovo both offer more innovative Ultrabook-style laptops than Apple, though the Mac maker has the pair of them licked when it comes to implementing that innovation."
Thankfully the majority have not fallen for the crap and are intelligent enough to make their own decision and are not swayed by what someone else thinks is (eurgh!) cool (now i feel dirty).
As much I hate China's stance on human rights, they do, after all, have the right to conduct themselves in a manner they see fit in their own country.
We might not like it, I don't, but it wrong of "us" to try to make changes. Its a matter for the chinese to resolve.
".......a cunning ploy to get fanbois to spend more money instore,".. and it works!
Massively better handsets are available, but the fanbitches come back for more.
SGIII owners, laugh, hardly and loudly at iPhone 5 buyers who are q'ing to shell out fortuen for a handset that still can't do what your handset does!
Hardly very clever, these fanbitches.
"US pornography consumption is higher in conservative "Red States", with the Mormon stronghold of Utah leading the pack."
I am surprise by this. I though the mormons were allowed more than 1 wife?
The conservatives (in any country) are usually the biggest pervs! They preach 1 thing but do the opposite. I suppose this is why conservative policies FAIL US ALL, TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
Pointless! Too litle Too late.
If I want to send data, I can bluetooth it faster or NFC it. Want to pay I can NFC with the infrastructure growing rapidly.
And HP wonder why they are going down the pan!
"Another bit of cleverness – obvious when you think about it, but not so obvious if you haven't – is the filing's suggested use of the iDevice's audio-out jack as either an air input or output port. Presumably, some sort of alert might be needed to inform the user that it was time to unplug his or her headphones before the device melted down."
Not so clever!
Its good, not bad!
Sorry, but its a good thing. 'dows does security, takes it seriously, regular patching which for most users is seamless!
Slackle's lone wolf approach to secuirty will bite it in the rear.........
The software could run on any device!
".....automated eradication is the Shangri-La of the freetard viewer."
Rubbish! Sorry but we've watched TV for free since its inception (excl the licence fee). To make comment that we are all freetards now is ridiculous.
Mind you, I am reading El Reg! Most of the comments and stories made by the Reg hacks could only be considered as complete TOSH. (Just look at how many "apple is cool" stories they bleat out)
Prime minister using iPad to control ANY aspect of public life? WE'RE ALL DOOMED!
Re: Good review
If you want people to think "oh wow he's got an iPad" buy an iPad.
Block out the thoughts that people really think your a massive knob!
If you want a device that does practically everything you need it to do, buy anything other than an iPad.
Accept the fact that your don't need to be molly-coddled and live in a fantasy world, your apps and security are your own concern.
No a very difficult choice, unless your a brainwashed fanboi.
"But they’re Android devices and I don’t enjoy using Android as much as I enjoy using iOS"
You have no taste!
iOS is like a grandad, Jelly bean is like your little brother.
Tony must be an old man!
"....... his argument that the mammoth outsourcing deal was the way to preserve services on a smaller budget, Cornelius said: "Outsourcing is not a dirty word - even Unison is outsourcing its IT department," reported Government Computing."
I would like someone to explain just how an outsourcing company (who's sole purpose is to make profit from the council), can provide services cheaper and make a profit.
And if true, and they can provide todays services at less cost and make a huge profit, how this model could be implemented by the council in its current form.
Lets face it, outsourcing means a lower level of service, or will cost MORE. 100's of failed outsourcing projects past have clearly demonstrated this!
Apple's marketing machine is a wonder!
It makes, normally rational, people buy phones which are inferior to competitors offerings!
Its either brainwashing or their customers are not so clever in the first place.
"Too many people assume it's ok for others to come along and copy Apple stuff but not sure how you would feel if someone just came along and copied stuff you had created / invented / patented."
And FAR TOO MANY plebs think Apple invented the WORLD. Wake up child!
Apple: "FUCK! SAMSUNG DO IT SO MUCH BETTER, LETS SUE THEM"
The rest of the World: "APPLE, GO FUCK YOURSELF!"
Who ISN'T going to DIE?
What a load of wank!
"I'm rather surprised they released this. Isn't it far more profitable to treat than cure?"
COWARD INDEED, Fuck me humans really are lower than a snakes belly. Tell your mum well done for dragging you up by the hair.
Re: More rules = more loopholes, idiots.
"yes, because poiliticians are oh-so trustworthy aren't they"
Alot of politicans are involved in these tax avoiding companies in the first place.
GREEDY BA*TARDS! Simple as that.
Re: Be reasonable...
"Do all the fanbois post as ACs..?"
YES, for the shame, the shame!
iPhone is SHITE! Done, over, move on, nothing worth seeing anymore. The fireworks display is over and all that is left is the smoldering bonfire.
Re: Non Apple user.....
"Re: Non Apple user.....
Have you ever used Safari? Ugh..."
So maps is crap, safari is crap, iOS is crap.
So the only reason for iPhone is the misguided though that the phone makes you look cool.
EPIC EPIC FAIL!
No wonder execs love Apple shite! They don't have a clue.
People are idiots! It really is as simple as that.
They need apple-esque adverts to tell them want they want.
It's like living in a world of retards.
The first commentator said it all.
"You don't catch Audi or BMW making cheap run-arounds to compete with kia do you? duh."
You can't get an Audi or BMW FREE ON A £30 CONTRACT!
Doesn't make iPhone very exclusive, does it?
Every pikey and their dog has iPhone, look at the q in the chip shop and see!
"Android is cheap and easy. It's a whore of a mobile OS.
That's why is gets everywhere like the village bike."
Which make iOS the posh TART! Fur coat and no knickers. W*nker!
What can't be done on any opther machine that can be done on macs? Now't!
So why pander to those who "want a more familar environment"? Any one using a mac has used a windows based PC.
So the only reason left is that they think that they are "cooler". They are not! simple as that.
Tell the plebs to shut it and get on with the work! Done.
Some people really are a HUGE wa*ker!
iPad is pants!
Not only is it FUGLY, with an OS which is fisherprice-esque, being seen with one gives you a "what a dummy!" tag.
"Microsoft needs to bring out an upgrade sooner rather than later - say early Q2 - to keep up the pace"..with iOS which is just shite!
"I'd just pull out. You can't sell that much in a country full of inbred catholics and drug dealers."
Typical iPhone owner, hasn't got a clue. Siri giving you a baised view of the world again?
Your phone doesn't make you clever clearly.
