maybe only selling PC's to those capable to using them would be a better idea.
The FBI should have pulled the plug ages ago. There would not be 300,000+ infections to date still because the owners would have either got the existing PC fixed or purchased a new one. Funny how people take more care once they have been stung.
Re: They've done this for ages, haven't they?
"I fail to believe that this patent is actually novel at all."
Its an APPLE patent!! Durr!
Copies of copies.
"Corporate presence is simply the industry playing catch up "
But too many of your kin wish to express their love for Coke/Head and shoulders/Macdonalds/<insert name>.
Do you really give a shit about what your so-called friends (the ones that you don't actually meet on a regular basis) "like"?
Social media suckers are the advertisers dream. If they buy into that, they'll buy into anything (espc. if it looks glass/chrome and 80's wallpaper).
"selective adding of real friends negates the boss problem of reading your tweets. Simple"
Not true. How can you control friend of friends? There is no way you can stop others from releasing information.
The only genuinely true way to prevent it is to have no social profile. Not like your missing anything exciting!
Re: multiple lines down nationwide
"It gets interesting when you use automated monitoring to watch customer connections - you just wouldn't believe how many are taken down, and how frequently, by routine work in the early hours of the morning."
And when would you expect this necessary routine work takle place? Noon?
Wow, honestly, the general public's reaction to outages is just extreme.
"How is this Apple stealing ideas? The patent was filed in October 2006 (and granted now)
Was there something similar then?"
Good ole Applite. Responds with a load of rubbish, because they're so wrapped up in their "i" device to read information which has been available for YEARS!
Yet another demonstration of how ill-considered the opinions of Applites are. Thank you for proving the point.
Like most of the tory government, Maude is a right cock.
Do you believe a politician when they say "to help it adhere to the highest ethical standards in its use of data".
What would the government know about "ethical standards"? Do they turn on the TV/read the rags?
Christ, big brother is here to stay! And you have no say on it at all.
"Also, why does everyone take the guys word when he says my GSIII burst into flames with no video just pictures but when an iPhone does on camera it has to be a conspiracy?"
Because applites just refuse to accept their choices are poor, ill-conceived and misguided. Their handset choice mainly made because their mate showed them a talking cat app, and that is just so wonderful to them.
Looks like it was in his side pocket to me.
Aren't apple phones built for "normal" use?
I'd consider having your phone in your pocket is normal.
Where is your phone right now?
Stop trying to lay blame anywhere other than at FOXCONN/APPLE and the battery manufacturers door, just cause you love your last decade phone.
Re: No reported Windows combustions yet
"Re: No reported Windows combustions yet
No one has a windows phone yet."
See iPhone owners are just blinkered and their opinions, quite frankly, ridiculous!
Thanks for the proof positive.
"We all know iPhones are hot property - as their owners generally tell you. However, when one blows up in your pocket, you know its probably time to stop bragging."
What is there to brag about. What? Your taste is glass/steel and 80's wall paper?
iPhone owners are so dim! Brag to me you have an iPhone and i'll laugh in your face. How foolish? iPhone, tisk, your last decade!
Let’s hope the iPhone5 is a MASSIVE improvement from its predecessors.
After all glass and stainless steel was acceptable in kitchens circa 2000, and the UI looks like 80's wall paper.
Apart from the "advertisers dream", who will buy into any old shite that is "magical and revolutionary", anyone with a considered point of view may well be interested in what they produce next.
But its really needs to be better than what they already offer.
(Though I still won't want one! Don't want people thinking I'm a complete twat)
W O W!
A clear demonstration of just how deluded “i” device owners really are.
You’re a dream to the advertisers. You'll clearly believe any old shite, like "magical and revolutionary"
How many droids have you owned to make such a sweeping and totally incorrect assumption?
Re: one eyed view of the world
"company as clever and innovative as it is"......
W O W! You must be blind, deaf and dumb. I bet your easily taken in by advertising.
You must be if you own a "magical and revolutionary" device.
You must qualify your claims. Innovative? When? How? With what?
Most of Apple's innovations and clearly copies or extensions of previously created ideas.
If you’re easily taken in by advertisers, and truly believe that your status is elevated by owning an Apple device, you’re a total MUG, and you deserve to have all of your money taken away from you.
Re: I've had good service from Apple.
Hardly a glowing endorsement!
"I've suffered two separate faults" but Apple are good??
Slackle just need to pay up or get out. They obey the laws of the land, simple as that.
How can China's youth be fashion conscious if they are buying "i" products?
Fashionable, yeah last Decade!
"The platform was originally due to be launched in 2010, but technical difficulties and arguments between stakeholders ensured that and later deadlines were missed.......That makes YouView's 'one box, many services' rather less of a unique selling proposition than it once was"
And when it falls flat in the face, the "big wigs" know just whom to blame!
Re: "to the user interface and even the packaging."
"They even said samsung have copied the shape of apple ipads hardware, pretty remarkable considering samsung makes 20% of the components and apple makes none."
Exactly, but come on. It's a Californian judge. You can't expect common sense!
Only bias and prejudice. Thats been clearly demonstrated here.
5 years old, looks like 10 and the UI totally 1980's.
In 5 years it has easily been outclassed, but the faithful hang on, like grannys at a bingo hall.
And those well off still think that its a status symbol. How wrong people can be eh?
I'd agree with Salter.
The average Brit IS too dumb to understand.
Maybe that's why swathes of them carry iPhones, cause they just work.
"Just proves what a load of cobbled together junk Android is - this interface, that version, this software to bridge to iTunes = hassle"
Because you clearly don't know what your doing.
I've not had any hassle. It just works, beucase I know what I'm doing.
Suppose Appleites need more hand holding, and the rings true in those I have had to support in the past and that of the commentards.
It's June 2012 people. Its not the iPhone era anymore!
Listen and move on, otherwise if you keep banging on about iPhone you'll been seen as being a bit, well, behind the times, thick, dim witted...........
Apple iPhones ARE the FORD FIESTA of smartphones
If you really STILL believe that being seen with an iPhone (BLURGH!!!), is akin to driving an Audi/BM/Merc, you MUST BE driving an Audi/BM/Merc with a 90's REG!
Stop fooling yourself and get with the times. Your iPhone is OLD HAT, it looks old and the UI looks as stylish as a Fiesta circa "life on mars".
Don't forget, the really savvy don't want an Audi/BM/Merc, as they don't need a status symbol.
Samsung have already released sets with gestural controls and cameras etc....
Of course when Apple launch, the iLemmings will all claim just how wonderful Apple are for inventing such things. And if course iContent will be much better than normal content.....
"providing customers with a new TV experience"
W O W. Apple custs really are fking dimwits!
They will believe anything. They will believe that their Apple Telly is bringing them new innovations, the same innovations which are currently available from competitors now.
They will sell because people are stupid enough to believe that next generatin services are only available via AppleTelly.
We can hear the agruments now.
Dodgy Terry Gou giving dodgy advice to dodgy Apple dodgy iPhone purchasers.
Go figure! He's just jealous that Samsung snitched on him and his shady practices. Typical that Apple would get into bed with him!
The iPhone5 needs to make toast, do the dishes and put them away, to get anywhere near close the the SGSIII.
Downvoters, sorry but its true!
"The original Australian CSIRO research team that created and patented WiFi technology has been international recognised with the European Patent Office (EPO) Inventor Award."
WiFi V Wimax = VHS V Betamax.
VHS won out even though it was inferior. History repeating.
Why give them an aware when Wimax was better?
Of course gay icons have been added. It's the largest section of their user base!
Once again iDevice owners are fully informed. splutter!
[cause your having a laugh]
"Website operators can only take advantage of an exemption from new cookie laws if site users specifically request a service or function and that service would not work without the serving of the cookie, EU data protection regulators have warned."
So the whole process was a waste of taxpayers money!
Site owners just now claim that they must serve the cookie, and done.
Re: Were you expecting...
But oh so great Apple are still behind the times.
Hardly innovative, as iPreachers like to proclaim.
"That location tracking is a real innovation," WT? Where have you been for the last 5 years? This has been talked about for ages.
"and probably the only part of Passbook which hasn't been seen elsewhere." Eh?
"But it's not Apple's job to do things which haven't been done before; Apple's skill lies in doing things better" Utter tosh! Give an example. Apple's skill lies in trying to better someone one elses work. Hardly real innovation.
Oi, Reg! Get this author on a written warning for publishing their own opinion and not the facts.
Oh so great Apple, still no NFC!!
So stop banging on like they're your god, eh?
