I recently gave advice to a friend on the nexus 7. Said for the price point it was a good machine and has won awards for best '12 gadget.
They ignored me and was sucked in by the sales patter. Bought the new iPad.
Now complaining to me about how they hate it and how shit it is!
Why do people ask for advice, fail to heed it, then winge aobut their oh-so-poor choice?
iPhone is shite! It's become nothing more that a limited feature phone!
Ditch the shit and switch!
Apple could be arrogant back in 2007. yes they did have the bost (at that time) handset.
It's 2012 and their competitors have leap frogged them.
Only fanbois/and tech illiterates (which make up the majority of iPhone owners) would disagree.
Those with 1/2 a brain cell can see that iPhone is inferior to other handsets on the market.
"The reason i got the iphone 5 and not the s3 is that the s3 was too large." or, BAAAH!, because, BAAAH!, I had to , BAAAH!, follow the rest of the, BAAAH!, sheep!
Re: Size Isn't Everything
Re: iTunes on Android?
"Apple makes money from selling iPhones." So it doesn't make a penny from shitty iTunes?
Re: iTunes on Android?
""It doesn't but Apple also makes money selling things through iTunes"
Many of which are iOS apps ...
So you're an Apple accountant now?
Honestly, the bull shite!
"I'm going to give his opinion about as much weight as I give to the crazy homeless guy's opinion."
A crazy homeless guy who has achieved more than you ever will!
Well done for pointing out that your skewed opinions are worthless.
Woz achieved more than the spotty critics on a 'tech site' blog!
Re: Please do
"Offer a 4S sized phone and a larger me based on the Samsung S3 size.
I will always go for the smaller on, it fits better."
"but there are plenty who just want an Apple regardless of the display size"
Say it all!
I just want a phone that offers the features I want and is not "locked in" to a specific 'ecosystem'.
".......make it illegal to insult religion in the country"
W O W, Human beings can be severly mentally retarded!
Passing this sort of law clearly demonstrates that those with sway also need treatment.
Not a very good image to project to the rest of the world.
Re: Dark fibre?
H2O networks, yes?
Unless you have loads of kids (which most native brittons do not), why do you need fibre speeds?
Stop breaking copyrights, 1 p0rn stream is enough, no one can tweet a load of bullshite that fast, or update twatface with shite that fast.
For the majority, its a waste of time. Only the saddest of the saddos need shite but fast.
"Do it once and do it right."
R I I I I G H T! Lived in th UK long?
"Why the need to compare it to the iPhone 5? Like the iPhone 5 was the first 4" device. Apple have only just realised the trend and like for larger screens. Samsung's already been and done 4".
Let me try a new headline for you. "Samsung says 'yes' to Galaxy S II sized Galaxy S III.""
How else would the Reg Hacks stir up the pot?
I wouldn't worry, iPhone and its hype is as old as its followers beliefs
"Not only it knows where Taiwan is, it's much better at giving driving directions while there:
I hate militant lesbians, sorry, iPhone lovers!
Re: Get a grip
"Eggs, cheese and other nonsense is displaying gross disrespect for the fundamentals of this challenge."
Don't be stupid man! Why do you think the great british breakfast is called teh great british breakfast?
Re: Speaking as a vegetarian
"I'm actually quite hungry now, not hungry enough to cross to the dark side."
God made pigs from Pork! He made cows out of beef!
That is their intended purpose. You god defyererererrr!
Re: precison engineer
"lost count of the amount of times i've had egg yolk down the trousers half an hour before a meeting :>)"
How very dare you vote for the precision engineer when you can't even eat an egg/bacon buttie without spillage! How precise is that?
Smoked bacon is for those without taste buds, or taste!
Council Ketchup, Blurgh!
Lightly toasted bread with melted butter, no ifs no buts.
Sunny side up fried egg.
Slither of HP.
Anything else is just greasy spoon food! Chip pan, properly chip pan.
Sorry Fannybois, the sheen is tarnished for good.
iPhone is just old hat for fuckwits.
Apple look like they are standing still and taking the piss out of you. So why the militant defence?
Re: Herr Schmidt
"Being able to carbon copy something is not innovation.".....sorry Apple!
Its a huge non-story for brits to get their knickers in a twist about!
If every other company (bar royal mail) can deliver to a neighbour, the point is moot!
Re: No matter how much bandwidth you generate
And why is it always the public schools boys who give a shit?
Grow up ladies.
"While I think Apple rightly don't have a leg to stand on with this claim and they should lose you've still got to admit that all these firms like Microsoft are jumping on the 'App' bandwagon because they made it cool."
No they didn't!
I hate it when kids say that Apple made anything. They don't even make their own devices!
Sorry, iWhatever is OVER, if anyone thinks they are still "Cool", the fact that it's so last decade makes you uncool and so far out of touch your in another galaxy.
"I'm thinking that Apple are going a bit over board with this."
What? Apple? Going overboard? Never!
"....its service "has the characteristics and/or qualities of Apple's App Store services". "
What? Full of shite content for a shite phone?
Re: CPS are hopeless
"They are without a doubt typical of the public sector - inept, lazy,"
Your sweeping comment clearly demonstrates that your opinions are biased and unconsidered.
Re: Compare with McDonnalds
"Add an extra gram of choc to an icecream: fired!
Leak loads of personal information: probably not fired!"
Exactley! Clearly demonstrates why I think the English are as thick as pigs shite!
Fking Jeremy Kyle rejects!
Re: The really scary thing here...
"..it that some utter fuckwit gave away the names of kids (those under the age of 18). It doesn't matter what sort of kids they were, whether or not they already had ASBOs, or what. They were KIDS.The twat should be hung by the balls until the parents of the kids get their mitts on him. Then the matter of a repeat performance will likely as not be all but academic."
Won't someone think of the children!!
The worst kind of "adult".
Re: This will
"This will eke out a few quid extra from the faithful"......
This will eke out a few quid extra from the MUGS..... Apple would flog its grandmother to make more money, greed isn't appealing. I'm clever enough not to give them my hard earned!
I always thought the Americans were 10 year ahead of the UK (or so people say)?
Then why are they chasing after tech thats just OLD? Being seen with a mullet wouldn't make people think "wow, he's on trend". Being seen with iPhone isn't a status symbol anymore, quite the opposite in fact!
Owners clearly don not know that it is 2012 and what tech is available out there.
Its akin to your granny thinking the VCR is great!
Re: Jail break?
"Speaking from experience:
I like Android as a concept. but i hate the implementation and the fragmentation
I would choose a closed stable system over an open fiddly one"
So you are the person being hand held to the shops by mum?
And you are proud to proclaim your shame?
WOW, iPhone is now about as fashionable as flares and a mullet!
The questions should be why has he chosen such an old phone? Hello yesterday.
iPhone5? Fck me. It would be like wearing flares and having a mullet!
Its out of date already. Catch up!
Like Shite mate!
Your not getting £2 out of me for print media. Just accept your industry is dead!
Only the fool hardy buy/read newspapers. Who pays to read someone elses bias opinions?
Re: I heard the iPhone6 has NFC
"I heard the iPhone6 has NFC
My Xperia S already has that, and panoramic 3D camera (12MP no less), fullHD, Retina+ display.
OK, it's not got 4G, but then where I live, I'm not going to be seeing 4G for another 5+ years.
And if I want to use Passbook instead of NFC, then I can do that too.
So why would I want a iPhone that costs double the price of my Xperia S, and has lesser specs?"
It could be made of shite and the fannybois would still be singing it's praises. Why bother? Let them have an old mans phone. I'll stick to the one which is feature packed.
And for those fannybois who say whats NFC for? THAT WHY YOU HAVE iPHONE!
If it had NFC, it would be a selling point to you!
"Nonetheless, there remains the fashionability/zeitgeist/hipness argument."
If you really think the iPhone 5 fits this criteria, you are OLD. VERY OLD INDEED.
iPhone is about as fashionable as a tramps trousers. It WAS. It's NOT ANYMORE!
IdiotPhone and iOS are both crap. We know, users know it, the fucking world knows it.
Most owners have one because their friends have said, "oh but look what iPhone can do".
Friends with a droid can then say "yes, but it doesn't do this, I can't do that...."
Maybe, but are they plural?"
".... support an infrastructure that isn't widespread...."
Maybe on your planet. Here on Earth NFC terminals for payments by bonk are springing up everywhere!
And don't forget, NFC isn't just for payments. Get a SGIII and find out what Apple will be copying, or at least catching up with.
