"Technically its Samsung that has made the processor faster and Sharp who have improved the display....."
Exactley! Apple have done NOTHING.
"Unless they add an anal vibrator!" for its intended user base.
Re: I hope
The iPhone 5 doesn't look like the Samsung S3"
Have you not seen the leaked pics? looks as bland as its intended user base.
idiotPhone is so over, they can't even get the numbering right.
FF is crap. Tried it, wont use it. Just doesn't live up to the hype.
Chrome sends as much info as possible to Google.
And as for the "XP" comments. Durr!
If you want the latest features, you must get the latest OS.
"But why should I bother my ass to learn one tool just for Windows when the likes of FF work well and I can sync my addons/settings etc? Simple answer: I shouldn't."
Bugger you then, cut your nose off to spite your face if you want. Plenty of others out there that will happily.
Then devs may find that users won't switch browsers, but, just not take up their offerings!
Re: Nonsense fake numbers...
Typical idiotphone user! One sided bollox. Knows fck all.
Too many assumptions being made to be able to take this nonsense seriously.
The idiotphone sells well in the US, SHOCKER!
Say no more.
When will corporates realise they are only providing services to a small fraction of their "customers"?
Surely you satisfy the majority first? The idiotphone users should come second?
Re: I have a Note.
"I have to agree that the iPhone interface is nice".....lovely to see 80's wall paper designs all over again.
Wow, how lazy are u?
Your fingers broken or something?
At least droid is not stuck with one store with temperamental censors. If you don't find it in one store, you CAN try another. With iOS if it's not in the nanny guarded wall play pen, it doesn't exist!]
"red-blooded Republicans who'll be raising a toast every time their alert goes off."
Cold blooded, black hearted you mean!
Where is Apples fine?
They are at the heart of this deception, scheming and colluding for its own gains, at the expense of consumers.
That wall garden is covered in dogs sh te, and stinks from here!
Re: This was a different patent from those considered in the California case
"Now pipe down and get back under your bridge."
W O W, the kids are revolting!
As soon as a negative comment toward apple is made, truth or not, out they come.
You will not assimilate me.
Only in America (and possibly the fruity Germans) would Apple win. Surprise!
Yet you still hear the 'tards claiming it to be everything other than a complete sham.
Tho a 4G monopoly is bad, at least there WILL BE a 4G network.
EE's headstart should be nothing more than a kick up the arse for the laggards, showing them up as being backwards (a little like their customers).
Re: @ AC 9:21
And all the down voters are still stuck inthe last decade!
Thanks for an enlightened post, and not the same ole whinging like a girl posts from the majority of commentards.
Most people out there (as highlighted by numerous reg commetards) have hung Win8 out to dry before being released.
There are win users who don't want change, slating it. The casual users who can't be bothered to learn something new. The other OS users who don't want to give it a chance. The Appleites who believe only iOS/OSX can give them the satisfaction they need.
I'm openminded and looking forward to a new windows experience. I think its a good idea that we move forward, after all it's going to be 2013 before you snap your fingers.
But it will fall flat because the majority are just negative, closed minded or even hostile.
Society seems to be getting sadder by the (younger and younger) itteration.
"it seems likely an on-board tuner on the TV itself will become a thing of the past in the not too distant."
I've been using the "telly" as a display device for years. All it needs to be is a screen (till holography kicks in), I'll throw what ever content I want to it. Sky box, games console, PC, DLNA devices, what ever, but the traditional telly tuner will become extinct. Telly will be via the fibre/copper lines, not broadcast. Seems it's taking years for any manufacturer to release such products.
May be it's the ether's way of telling those who can't be bothered with set up, that they shouldn't have the tech? It's going to be more "fisher price" kit for the 'tards.
I'd rather see folk learning how to use something, than having things done for them.
Maybe if folk learned, hell desk wouldn't have 'tards calling because a device isn't plugged in! Maybe making the 'tards use their brains migh raise the bar for their kids, and stop the social rot.
Re: DLNA codec problems
Re: Won't they just...
"Amazing how Apple keeps coming out with "obvious" stuff that no one else was doing before. Makes you wonder how obvious they really are.
Maybe other manufacturers should try to do more obvious things. They appear to be stuck doing only overly complicated stuff with complex setup procedures and terrible user experience like the codec nightmares of DNLA. The others are making gadgets that look cool but are as useful as a door stop, like the Nexus Q."
Where as Apple make devices with a vile UI/experience, for dummys who shouldn't have the tech if they don't know or are not prepred to learn how to use it. Christ, fannybois kids must be out of control.
Re: Apple inventing a new wireless protocol
Apple product owners require the most support! Speaks volumes.
That must be the reason its made "fisher price", for their drones.
Resistance is not futile.
Do you not know how to avoid this?
Re: Won't they just...
"... It wouldn't take much to have one of the devices create an ad-hoc WiFi network on the fly for other devices to connect to, rather than needing a router to act as a go-between. No new hardware required!
Paris, routing... isn't it obvious?"
Yes. Yes it is obvious, that's called "Apple Innovation".
".....bypass the decidedly lo-fi sound cards and jittery Wi-Fi connectivity commonplace in most home computer setups"
I've never had an issue ever!
Is this an example of Apple innovation again then?
Using the wifi network works well, but Apple wants more of the fanbois money. You know that there are people drooling out there, under the illusion that Apple can do anything better than you.
Appple's sphincter is large enough to fit themselves and their offspring in, in one go!
"Reg regular Tim Anderson put it far more succinctly thus: "Hello customer, would you like this clever-twisty-touch-keyboard-trackpad-Windows thing, or this easy to use iPad?""
I think Tim pays too much attention to himself!
The 'tarded comment from a very old man should read, "Would you like a full feature Windows 8 PC with full productivity and entertainment at its heart, or join the borg, be assimilated into the "i" crown and work with a very limited, but oh looks so shiny iPad thingy your GRANDMOTHER uses?"
"...... favoring instead companies regulating themselves. When it comes down to protecting personal information and sharing it with third parties, "the only way to safeguard or improve these systems is through the private sector," it states."
Companies regulating themselves. YEAH RIGHT!
We all know how that ends up. So those who would sell your grand mother for a profit can be trusted to keep perosnal data private and not be traded like cattle. Wouldn't trust a business man as far as I could throw them. To suggest otherwise demonstrates a persons lack of understanding.
Daft yanks. Ain't happening in sane countries.
Typical Reg to pitch the story the way it has.
I'm begining to realise, you've got the take alot of the reg hacks stories with a HUGE pinch of salt.
And, I don't believe for 1 second people are moving to the dark side in fear of their older handset not being "supported". What support does one need?
You buy a phone and insure it for loss/damage. You use it, Done! I've NEVER EVER needed any other type of "support". The whole notion must be a fannyboi thing, those that need to be held and kept feeling all loved up and secure??
"innovation that isn't Apple's, that is"
Please enlighten us as to what exactley are Apples innovations?
They looked at what had already been produced and refined it. What exactley was new or hadn't been seen before?
And remember, I don't believe the hype!
Breaking news. Apple schmooze their customers. SHOCK!
I've said it time and time again. People would buy shit on a stick if it were sold to them in the same way Apple staff flog their wares. Why do you think the mugs buy the crap? 'Cause they believe the crap.
It's like looking through glass half the time. Just pander to their vanity and "big up" your mediocre product and reel them in.
That sheen you were sold looks tarnished in the cold light of day!
"As can be seen from this post, this could be the Best billion dollar ad-campaign Samsung ever had"
I agree, but, most of the dim wits buying Apple tech are not clever enough to realise this.
Let them pay through the nose for rubbish.
No Noncebook/Twatter? What did the Jeremy Kyle "guests" do for 24 hours?
Maybe had a real conversation with a real friend?
Apple are running scared! Only an American court would rule in Apple's favour. I'm surprised that the case was held there.
Well all I can say is that Apple and the American people look even more foolish than normal!
Just don't trust a yank for a sane/competent answer.
"The US and British armed forces have imposed restrictions on the use of mobile phones in war zones because of the danger that geo-tags might easily give away the location of soldiers."
If you don't know how to disable said feature, maybe you should consider having a digital camera without the feature?
Why do you feel the need to build an intercontinental missile?
The sponge types are drooling already.
You can hear it now, "but my phone has touch sensors integrated into the screen".......bla...bla...bla...
(or should that be BAAA BAA BAA)
Shame it's still shite.
And surely it would be ifop 6!
"But pundits have also speculated that the new design will lead to shortages "
How else would they get the sponges to drool and create a feeding frenzy?
yes. because soon that will be the only handset choice.
ran by monkeys for monkeys.
Re: Yet the
Wow, you're so quick to give up your liberties! Don't give mine away.
Trolls or not, you, I and all of us have the right to express our comments/feelings, whether these are negative or not.
Boo Hoo a companies reputation is damaged due to negative feedback. I have the right to give negative feed back. Maybe the feed back would not be negative, if the company involved had served it's customer correctly? After all, you don't leave negative feed back on a positive experience.
Shall I sue those have have left negative feedback on ebay? Would you?
Don't be so quick to give up our rights.
""Apple takes security very seriously," the firm said in a statement"
Re: Wish I was on the Jury
...or maybe threaten them both. Either sort it out, or the loser bails out greece.
Apple needs to be bitch slapped for trying to patent breathing. Sammy need to be smacked for rising to their bait.
"Ok, so should we let the Koreans win, or our American brothers?"
Re: Not just the kids...
Wonder why the kids love it then?
So, you could say, being seen with iPhone means you have nothing important or private to say. If you did, you'd be using the BB for its secure comms.
Re: Present consumer don't always
"The young 'uns love for BBM is rarely, if ever, mentioned by the dull men in dull suits when discussing RIM."
Thats cause the dull men in dull suites have iPhone, dull.
Re: Firefox beta
"It's a wonder anyone can concentrate on the body of the page what with all the flashing and spinning adverts."
With ease! Something wrong with your eyes?
Ad company says it asked a thousand Brits if they liked mobile adverts and concluded that "archaic perceptions of mobile advertising being intrusive are long gone.
Man in the street says, the advterising companies are talking bollox and will say anything to keep thier job.
Re: Some Suggestions for Saudis..
Calm down Tom.
He was hardly saying all saudi's are camel screwers! Seesh!
W O W, Over reaction.
