Never knew that reg 'tards were part of the MI5|FBI|CIA etc....
They seem to know everything!?!
Re: Using Android reminds me why I stick with the iPhone...
You didn't read all the words in his post did you?
He's writing documentaion for phones that are NOT YET RELEASED.
Isn't it obvious why he's not naming it?"
You didn't expect an iPhone user to examine all the facts before jumping to conclusions did you?
Re: Apple polish.? Google already have that...
"Pick up chicks/dudes with iPhones?"
Can we aaume then that iPhone users are FUGLY and need a phone to make them more interesting!!
"the register is full of fandroids who just think it's cool that google have ALL their data and no privacy :)"
Far more aware of privacy issues than the standard iPhone user in their walled garden, keeping them safe from the baddies!
"iOS is more polished than Android. You'd have to use both to know, and most folks don't."
....and then you wake up!
Re: Using Android reminds me why I stick with the iPhone...
"So you're judging Android on a device that you interestingly fail to name?
There is a clue where the problem might lie though, you're comparing a mid-range nameless phone with a very expensive phone.
How is anyone supposed to take you seriously?"
WTF? iPhone was expensive when released LAST DECADE!!
They are as common as their owners (Pikeys, chavs, Jeremy Kyle auditionees)
Are you on drugs?
"Except, of course, that Android isn't as good as iOS when it comes to polish. "
WTF? Your either off your face, or blind, deaf and dumb! (Mind you, you did select iPhone, so the second option is more like reality)
Re: Cloud Services
"new device in my hand was indistinguishable from the one I was using the day before."
One for all. Hardly innovative.
" I like the simplicity and convenience of owning Apple devices"
I'm not simple!
".....Google ....keeps releasing the Android operating system that is popular but not nearly as good as Apple's iOS, and its phones/tablets that are not as good as Apple's hardware."
Matt, sorry but your wrong.
iOS is rubbish and how can you say "style over substance"?
What style? 00's chic? YEAH, RIGHT!
How can anyone take what you have to say next seriously ?
Re: The whole os?
"I just think people are now too quick to dismiss it."
BANG ON! Especially the retards in here. One minded one track ponies with pointless comments.
"@Barry - Did you even read the article? They clearly said that the problem was nothing to do with video, but the metadata related services, such as ratings, categories etc."
The coward is right! Too many retards hit submit without thought or consideration for whey they rant about. Hardly surprising in here tho is it?
"Hi Obviously!, why you using AC?"
Actually, I've not commented until now. Just to how retarded are you? As if we needed proof that your comments are ill-considered and just plain wrong (don't be teaching your mistakes to your mistakes).
PLUS, and most importantly, I'd never use a COWARDS tag. My set grew at the age of 13.
I'm happy with what I know to be true and have no reason to hide like the rest of the COWARDS allowed to spout their bile. WELL DONE TOM38!
Greedy bastards will always be greedy bastards.
Like it or not, the measure of a man is not in pounds/pence, dollars/cents.
The richest "people" can be the scummiest lowlives out there. They are usually psycopaths.
Others, can be normal human beings with a sense of responsibility, but usully they are power hungry psyco's who think that being rich allows them to manipulate others for their own gain.
No amount of money could buy me! I'm worth more than money, regardless of how much I earn.
"......Apple's a cock-up, it is another bit of egg tossed onto the face of Apple's cherished, carefully cultivated "It Just Works" reputation."
Ha ha. Think differently, think "what a huge pile 'o shite".
and the cowards bleat on the sam old shite!
Is your iPad stuck?
Re: I'm actually interested in the new iPhone
"This will be the one that proves whether the magic was in Apple or Jobs..."
Who gives a shit?
Sounds like Jobs knob'd all of his followers. Well, they are all knobs anyway, so no harm done.
"To which the answer is almost as obvious: so they'll write about it and keep the frenetic interest in all things Apple bubbling along until there's some real news to report. "
Yup! And keep the SAD lot happy for a bit longer.
never used the firewire port on either........
More Apple filling.
iChavs, the lot of them.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EL REG
....first Apple windup of the year.
Instagram users are "hipsters".... more bollox not worth the pixels or time reading, next article.
"the phone system has also been difficult to extend outside the office as the workforce has become more mobile."
Rubbish! personal numbering has been around for years. There have been several soultions to support voice mobility.
Where do you get these people from?
"Maybe users feeling they need to do their own thing is a reflection of inadequacies in what the company provides. Rather than totally rejecting the cry for freedom, or going to the other extreme of giving in to it too easily, perhaps we should simply roll out more appealing and flexible corporate solutions."
Or maybe the end user should shut the fk up and get on with the work. Cut the "I’m more productive on my mac/iPad" bullshit. You have what you need, and if productivity reduces disciplinary! Then sacking with a reference along the lines of 'they didn't want to use provided equipment and acted like a spoilt child because they couldn't use their iPad, so they were sacked for gross misconduct'
I could use any piece of tech and still be effective and productive at what I do. I would not show myself up by trying to justify an iPad (like i'd use one of those JOKE machines)
Anna Leach tells you as it is.
Rik's always got that foul tasting Apple spin.
The next big news story?
35mm film cameras! (iPhone owners will be frothing at the mouth at the thought)
Re: I for one...
"especially the show offs"
You can't show off inferior, last decades tech!
That;s like saying, "Hey look at my morris minor"
When will they learn?
"S3 is 20% cheaper (but it has to be) and it's not as well made or come with the same service"
Way to fool yourself!
Re: Tell me …
"You forget the upside - removing a DVD drive from a current laptop means either less weight or longer battery life - for many / most users that is going to be more useful day-to-day. I use a DVD drive but perhaps 4-5 times a year so carrying a USB version (after all they are the size of a single CD case anyway) is not biggie."
W O W, did you read your ramblings?
Lets remove the optical drive, but carry an external one anyway? REALLY?
Re: I actually like Apple "stuff"
"But if someone can give me a dumbarse screen with a decent picture quality, no tuner, no media functions, no fancy crap I'd buy one tomorrow.
A disposable TV to go with my phone/computer/whatever I refresh every 12-24 months? I dont think so Tim!!"
Like you, as a (shamed) Apple consumer, have a say in the matter? You will buy what Apple tell you to buy! And you'll like it!
Re: If true it will do more than $1BN damage to Samsung
"Might end up costing Apple more in the end but if Apple do really want to hurt Samsung taking the high end TV market away from them would be more effective than lawsuits have so far."
You dont have a clue, do you?
Nail on the head
"Bragging rights are a major factor - particularly when selling to Apple fanboys."
Cause only Apple fannybois are still waiting for their testes to descend. Bragging rights, WTF??
What have they got to brag about? Last decades tech?
"Whenever El Reg rumormongers an Apple Rumor, a Foxconn worker has to die!
PLEASE, THINK OF THE FOXCONN WORKERS!"
Blame Rik for being stuck in the last decade.
"the Apple televisions being tested range from 46 to 55 inches, which makes them rather sizeable by current big-screen TV standards"
Typical Rik bullsh*t! Apple tech is crap, release your demons and get with the times.
"Tory MP Claire Perry, who was "disappointed" that her push to block online porn and violence by default was defeated, has now been appointed by the PM as his adviser on preventing sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood."
Oh No! The kids are doomed!
"Bollocks, Samsung rtipped off the iPhone 4s"
Nice fking MASSIVE fantasy land you're living in! Where the fairies and pixies designed the iPhone and was kissed by god before fate bring one to you.
Shame iPhone died last decade. Those Apple sleeping pills work really well. Their customer base seems to be in a state of delusion.
Hardly the best decision!
Re: Android virus the cry of self denial.....
"While I sit back with a smug smile on my face holding my iphone in one hand and wipe away tears of joy with the other."
Can't be that smug with an iPhone in your hand!
How can you feel smug when your held by the hand by your OS.
Grow a pair you yellow belly coward.
"we have not yet detected SpamSoldier on any major app stores"
Easy, do not allow non-marketplace installs! Done.
Re: Sammy sic
"Although I wouldn't ever use the "butcher's apostrophe" for a plural myself, strictly speaking it is allowable in that sentence as TV is an abbreviation."
R E A L L Y! Watch babestation much?
Re: "across a potential customer base of 815 million"
"Re: "across a potential customer base of 815 million"
What, your baby doesn't shop for smart phones?"
Yeah, they bought iPhone, till I returned it and told the kids that they are not pikeys.
Ditch both and get yourself the easiest, cleanest and fastest OS, windows phone 8!
Wipes the floor with droid and apple in terms of UI.
"EVERYONE lives by double standards.
And are you saying hypocrisy is a mental illness?"
No. I'm saying religious belief is a mental illness!
Sorry there is not an all seeing, all powerful, mystical creature living in the clouds controlling everything, let alone a son!
When will human kind realise that religion is a story, and those stupid enough to believe it need to have their head seeing too.
"Shouldn't he get two accounts? One for each of his faces..."
Farcebook would not be happy with "multiple accounts".
Re: Assumptions, assumptions...
"you have been consuming too much Holywood material"
You'll need to expand on that synaptic misfire!
Or is it that you don't give a shit?
"The giant etailer had been selling ebooks at cost or below to push sales of its Kindle ereader and gain brand loyalty to dominate the growing market. "......till Apple came along and colluded with the publishers to FIX the price of ebooks (which are now more expensive than paper (don't mention VAT please, this was obviously taken into account)).
Very ethical! If Apple were a person, i'd keep it away from the kiddies!
"how you can say that gmail is more or less cool than outlook, I don't know..."
Because your conversing with a spotty teanager with litlle life experience, and alot of knowledge to gain!
(Certainly seems like it, shocking if its not)
Re: i have to use outlook.com
"So why anybody would want to move from gmail to outlook is anybody's guess.
Still, each to their own...."
Gmail is crap, thats why. Outlook is so much better!
Still, once someone has chosen their client of choice, its hard to shift them, even when the failures are obvious.
Do we live in IRAN? WTF?
The people who make sthese stupid rules need to be removed from office.
Bloody england, gets worse to live here by the day!.
