iPhone for ya!
Re: Source: Google StreetView
"Self respect mate , get some !"
by ditching your last decade iPhone.....
Re: Apple Still Got Mildura Wrong After Update
"Police have confirmed five vehicles have become stranded in the park, with many more people presumed to have become lost but found there way back to civilisation."
How many iPhone owners are still out there?
Well, they will be stupid!
Re: expanding the ways in which customers can interact with Surface
apparently mrfill doesn't know how to use a tablet!
Re: numbers game?
safe to say mike has an iPad! FAIL!
Re: And...The same applies to their WinPhone8 offering
As per usual, IT director who knows F all!
MS need to dumb down to catch prospective apple purchasers. Shiny shop, clone army, done.
MS purchasers know what they are getting.
Windows 8 cleans the floor with its competition regards useability.
Instead of bitching like your lass, why not try it? Take your droid/apple glasses off first, if that is possible?
I have an 8s for testing purposes and "the ability to reject calls by sending an automated, prewritten text." is already available.
The solution would be to have legal protection from these f’king peasants. Of course this will never happen because those who are in it for the money, are allowed to get away with anything they can think of, without any recourse!
I don’t want ANY information being shared, it's got F all to do with ANYBODY (Private or Public bodies) what I do/say/purchase/visit, etc....
I'll investigate all options to keep my information secure and away from nosey bastards.
I NEVER buy products because of advertising. If I need/want something, I'll investigate myself.
I don't need to be spoon fed ads and I don't need these fucktards profiling me for ANY reason whatsoever.
The first retard to mention "free stuff" needs to be headed.
W O W, the most obvious story ever!
You work in "big data" and didn't know of, or think of the consequences?
Why not? Why wasn't it until you became concerned about your offspring did you start to consider the evils?
Thanks for highlighting just how blinkered society really is.
Turn the lights on, and the telly and the stereo and the PC........etc......
I don't care, it's the future generation who will suffer, I'll be long gone!
Re: Tablets of death
"I expect a lot of them don't even know how to turn on flight mode (or even that they have one)."
It doesn't matter how idiot proof you make a device or how fisher price you make the OS, iPad owners still need help to break the rules.
"And I read a lot, from an electronic reader"
A book too heavy for your puny little boy arms? Stop trying to justify your childish little strop.
Re: Only the clueless use electronic toys in flight
"The majority of airline travelers have better sense than to lug electronic toys with them for flight. Only the clueless who need to entertain themselves haul this crap onboard. The younger generation in particular are easily bored. They wouldn't think of watching a movie or reading or doing something educational. They desire to be entertained 24/7. That explains electronic toys, Farcebook and social media."
Grow up son. You know nothing.
If it ain't tested as being no harm, banned they should remain.
What's wrong with you? You must pull out a device for a poxy 10 hours!
Keep them banned!
I dont want to be sat next to someone tap tap atpping away for hours. There is just no need. Your not on a flight for anything other than getting from A to B.
"I reckon a couple of harsh convictions will sort the pranksters out pretty soon."
You'd think! But 1,000's of hoax/non-emergency calls are received every day (not least because parents think giving their child a mobile/home phone is ok) and nothing seems to happen!
Apple kills the TV star!
"it's possible that French testicles are feeling the long-term effect of their owner's penchant for riding bicycles while dressed in beret and stripey jumper and weighed down under strings of onions, resting only for robust three-hour lunches of stuffed songbirds marinated in Calvados."
WOW Lester! I bet you’re a stuck in your ways old man!
Your oh-so-cliché comments certainly reflect this.
For a tech site, the opinions of the commentards scares me.
It's unbelieveable just how one sides and blinkered you techies really are!
Definately not considered opinions, just bollox.
EPIC FAIL ladies and gentlemen.
Re: Jobs deserved an actor
"I'm not a Steve Jobs fanboi but I think he deserved a true actor to impersonate him.
Kutcher is a good third rate actor, doing an ok job in a crappy tv series."
Then Kutcher is the perfect choice for an imperfect man.
Re: Apple haters can start getting their rotten tomatoes ready now
"….some people hate Apple/Jobs with a vengance or blindness which is a shame"
…..some people love Apple/Jobs vehemently, which is a shame… Fixed it for you.
It’s just a bloody crappy tech co. He’s just a man. Nothing special.
What is a shame is that retarded people want to place more kudos to the man/company than deserves.
Sorry ifolk, but your choice in handset would make me think twice!
Your either a MASSIVE PIKEY or a useless fop. Either way, your choice of last decade’s tech of a limited feature phone, which has been spectacularly superseded, doesn't bode well for you.
"Or a valuable, skilled asset who won't put up with this sort of crap."
No, just a silly old fop with a chavvy "Jeremy Kyle" iPhone!
Re: Sounds like....
"there are so many reasons why being so judgemental is wrong."
But everyone does, even you!
Re: Sounds like....
"due to freaks that hate tech,"
Informed employees who choose not to fall into the Apple trap are hardly tech haters!
Apple folk cost more due to the incredibly high number of support calls received by them.
Re: Wouldn't happen in the UK
"over-privileged fops who have never done a day’s graft in their lives are exactly the sort of people HR bods are looking for!"
Sad isn't it.
iPhone flops need the most supporting, costing more for less output.
""Whipping out your iStuff for everyone to drool over is sooo 2010...".....you mean last decade!
In the UK, owning an iPhone doesn't mean your wealthy. Every chav pikey and their dog has one.
iPhone = Burberry.
Chav phone with limited feature set, yeah, classy!
Re: Poor kids
"Hopefully the naming trend is just an iFad (tm)"
What? Like iPad?
" .......their ridiculous parents"
Any reader who has named their child in anyway that represents Apple needs to have them removed and taken into care!
W O W, people really are wankers.
Tory scum is full of shite! Nosey bastards need to keep their nose out.
Like terror groups and SOC groups don't already use techniques to circumvent these measures they wish to introduce?
It's just another way for the gov to spy on the people.
Like NFC, the fannybois claimed wireless power was a useless fad.
Now behind-the-times Slackle are claiming that they invented it, and are obviously looking to introduce the tech into the next monstrosity that is iPhone.
Behind the times as usual.
"I'm concerned about the young people who write to me and say they are terribly afraid, they say they can't sleep, they can't eat. Some of them have said they are contemplating suicide.
So while it's a joke to many people and a mystery to others, there is a core of people who are truly concerned."
Please make public the indentities of these people. They are clearly a danger to the public and to themselves. Lets ensure that thier rantings and beliefs stay in their heads and do not corrupt the rest of society.
A user stopped me and asked why her phone wasn't working!!
Crystal ball to the ready.
Checked the line cord, connected.
Check the power cord, UNPLUGED from the 13A mains outlet!!!!
W O W, god help her children.
Why is it that I never experience the "issues" other report?
Fast, fluid, responsive does what I want it to do!
Problem exists between the ears to those holding the device.
I dont have any issues, so what are others doing wrong?
" a thrill for those who have yet to experience the joys of, say, an iPad"
Joy of an iPad.
You need to get out more and maybe open your eyes!
"if you don't resist the almost overwhelming urge to accumulate junk."
Only the feeble minded get overwhelming urges to accumulate junk.
Clean house/clean mind.
You view were too late to market, done!
iPad = shite, got it!
"ample helping of fairy dust :)"
Thats called fannybois cash. MUGS.
Re: Boot on the other foot
Makes sense to satistfy the largest group of consumers first.
I think we'll be seeing this more in future.
"Apple's glass-fronted stores are things of beauty compared to other retail outlets"
This "fact" needs to be justified! How?
Aren't most Mall stores glass fronted?
The Slackle store in the mall in my hometown is glass fronted with the odd bit of POS.
The neighbouring stores are also glass fronted, with POS and promotional material in it.
So why do you imbue Slackle stores with this nonsense?
""Redesigned from the inside out, ........ into an aluminium and glass enclosure that measures just five mm thin at its edge," Apple said."
Redesigned to look like it did previously??
Oi! Apple! Alu and glass?? STILL!! You do know that its been 5-6 years of the same old shite now don't you?
"The "Inventors" of the microphone silhouette are listed as Freddy Anzures and Alessandro Francesco Sabatelli. The Reg salutes their artistic achievement."
El Reg, WTF?
"releasing products styled to match Apple’s."
God I hope not! iPad design = EPIC FAILURE in terms of style.
Pretty little graphs mean F all.
I don't believe the sh te that I'm forced to read because my experiences do not tally with the pretty little graphs and bullshit commentary.
