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Its out of date already.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.
iOShite6 + idiotPhone5 = Not worth a penny.
Have you noticed, even Apple marketing wuoldn't use "Magical/Revolutionary" this time round?
They know its rubbish!
Re: I think you'll find that's Etymology
Sorry, thats just sad!
Why do companies whom self regulate always require "public" intervention?
Re: What are other phone suppliers doing wrong?
"If Apple can have fans like this, whether it's sad/obsessive/lots of other adjectives, then what are other manufacturers failing to do? Clearly it's either a superior product or superior marketing."
I suspect you are quite young?
Re: Just one question
"Just one question
The line of sad individuals queuing, where do they poop?"
Out of their mouths.
Re: Each to their own I guess
"Re: Each to their own I guess
I can't help feeling that heckling twats in queues is just as pathetic as queueing for one though."
WOW You must be a hoot at parties!
Re: Problem is
"That little black monolith isn't enough to keep them quiet, they will ooze smugness and sadness. Not to mention the same sad pathetic misfits in the queue, have real jobs where they might / will / could actually be responsible for proper things, like health care, roads, military stuff. Things we the normal people actually do need and can't have entrusted to gullible stupid morons that high five in public.
What we should be doing is photographing them and making sure they are not near anything "live", "dangerous" or "required" for the next 12 months, the little black monolith should mean they are taken out of society if it was bought while in a queue outside an apple store."
Well said sir!
You'll be telling us the Jesus existed next! A fool and their money are easily parted.
"My understanding of the Apple "brand" is that the user....." means NOTHING BUT BUCKS!
Apple will catch up with the competition....who have surpassed them spectactularly....eventually.
The first person to say that this would never have happened if Steve deceased Jobs was alive, must be removed from the UK and forced to live with the rest of the donuts in the californian donut, and never be allowed to join the rest of the sane!
Some mo is bound to.
If you've got remaining warranty why wouldn't you get Apple to replace the battery for free?"
What if you don't? W O W!
"Samsung chips evicted from iPhone 5"
That should read: A decent phone evicted from iPhone5.
Re: Still confused why people
Judge? Seems about right.
No judge in the land can be taken seriously!
"You don't want an iPhone, because.... "
It's last decade tech and last decade OS is absolute wank, which is what people will think of you if your seen withone. W O W why did you buy an inferior phone, for top dollar?
I've just seen another borg drone with a 5!
What a wanker! and he doesn't even know it.
Re: ACTIVATING REALITY DISTORTION FIELD...
"There's nothing wrong with the way Apple Maps represents the world. You're just looking at the world in the wrong way.!"
Apple say: You buy MY phone, you WILL listen to what I say, and you'll LIKE IT!
.......and the borg follow...........
"I think the design of the iPhone is looking pretty outdated and rather last decade"
What about iOS, BLURGH! Looks as sexy as Susan Boyle. Tho Applites LOVE IT!
Taste can't be bought, even with an idiotPhone.
idiotPhone 4S was bad, idiotPhone 5 = what a load of crap!
I want the lovers to explain why they are so militant to defend such a mediocre product?
Re: Nicked from the BBC website...
""Spending a fortune on your legal team and peanuts on R&D doesn't seem to be a clever business plan""
Works for the idevice owners! Not good enough for the initiated tho.
"What were they thinking?"
Grab as much money as you can out of the pockets of the saps who are silly enough to buy into our hype?
"but I have no wish to use a product which allows Google to track me even more than it already does."
Because Apple doesn't!
"With iOS 5, I had generally very good resolution, colour imagery of ancient sites, enough to see features not readily seen on the ground. Now the resolution is lower, so I can't zoom in to examine a feature so closely as before, and many areas are presented in black and white."
Looks like your iDevice is a useless as your peers have been telling you all along! Why are idevice owners so militant to defend what is a really mediocre device/os?
Re: @MJG NFS Payments
" If it was genuinely useful right now Apple probably would have included it too."
So the 1,000's of NFC terminals poping up everywhere are for fun then?
Apple look like they are standing still.
Apple seem to be standing still right now.
Re: iPhone 5 > all
Typical idoitPhone user before your very eyes!
"That Android figure is across all products, not just phones. The million number also includes a lot of shit that can't really be called "smartphone"." in your worthless opinion.....
""Samsung had twice as many preorders for the S3, and they had no delivery problems at all"
Apart from the cock up with the blue one you mean!"
"Sadly it's coming through so fast and thick, anyone with half a brain just thinks PPPFT! iDEVICE and ingores it..."
Re: Team Register?
"BTW, proud owner of an email saying my iPhone 5 was ordered and will be delivered on the 21st. :-D"
And you happily proclaim to being ripped?
Re: I feel used...
"Re: I feel used...
"Some people will believe anything"
Like the commenters on here that think El Reg's Dry Throat exists."
Exists or not, the comments made are TRUE! idiotPhone owners will say anything to prevent them for knowing the truth, and feeling even more silly than they look to their peers.
Re: If true...
S A P! I bet you have your idiotPhone5 already.
and the iFools will believe it, the iDiots!
"yup, better get an Android phone then, no one has one of those."
At least you'll not be seen as a pikey, should you make the wise decision to not own the pikey iPhone.
"classy and high-end" product owned by nothing more than Jeremy Kyle rejects.
iPhone = PIKEY. Every pikey and their dog have one, hardly classy!
iPhone was great! Not anymore, simple as that.
Every pikey, lowlife, slutty, reject and their dog has one now.
So when I see you with an iPhone I can only assume that you to are a pikey........
The positive status boost you so craved, was satisfied with iPhone, and made you feel better. Unfortunately, that status has diminished into "you PIKEY" because every other PIKEY has one.
iPhone 5 aint gonna help any either, in fact it's goning to be worse still.
So the choices are
1) be assimilated into the collective and feel a false sense of smugness because you think Apple are secure, or
2) live with a "version" of android that no one controls. Hmmm.
Or of course Windows phone!
There is a video on you tube of someone voice controlling thier windows PC.
So Apple picked up on it and COPIED!
Just fking STOP NOW foer sanity's sake.
You do seem a little bit obsessed with Apple. The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
The secret is out, i too am an idiotPhone user!
(Oh and ladies, typos I'm not going to say sorry for. So What. I've not got the time to correct typographical errors when commenting to these retards. Any more "You cant spell/type shite, refer to this post, eh?)
Re: Preaching to the wrong crowd...
I love how others get it, but you! ____________ ERM ____________
Sharp as a tack eh?
""1 idiotBadge coming up!"
So named because it's coming FROM an idiot who can't even type properly!"
AC == idiotPhone owner. Stop the crap and be man enough to stop hinding behind AC, otherwise your comments are just puffs of hot air!

Re: iPhone owners don't have the time to care...
Too right, too busy having more sex WITH THEIR HANDS and earning more MONOPOLOY money...
Are you really so stupid as to believe that owning an idiotPhone means your more likley to have more sex/money? S T U P I D!
