Lots of really informed decisions being voiced here! HA!
75% is bollox. The Lumia beats the iPhone for design/style and usage hands down.
Of course too many commentards are glued to their iPhone. They have to justify to themselves why they chose a closed proprietary OS, because they know they are now stuck with it! All of their content is stuck with Apple and can't easily shift it.
"Windows Phone still doesn’t have the app range of iOS or Android. But what is available is turning out to be pretty good quality these days."
When you *consider* the absolute CRAP apps on iOS and Droid you realise a smaller number of quality useful apps is undoubtedly better than having 1000's of shit app to choose from.
If you’re going to comment, make it an informed and objective comment and not just the usual knee jerk reaction to anyone slating your poor choices.
People don't realise what it means to, basically sell their information for a daft free app, or some other drivel. As long as they get what they want for free. Then there's the 10% who actually *think* about the options and make an informed decision.
If the freetards didn't reproduce and the 10% did, maybe, just maybe, todays Britain wouldn't be the cess pit from hell that it actually is!
"which is the best smartphone/cell phone?"
The phone which satisfies the consumer’s considerations and not one which was bought ‘cause me mates got one, or look it does this (some daft app that has no practicle application)
I hate sheep. BAAAA!
Lets hope pension funds aren't buying into the bubble!
I'm glad most carriers have dropped it.
I REALLY don't want to hear drivvel about others "lives", sad pathetic people.
"Woz continued it would be a bad thing for Apple and fanbois if it led to inferior products"
Why are Apple consumers so Ill informed about their purchases?
AH, Shiny Shiny, Of course!
Someone who actually knows what they are talking about!! It's so rare in modern Britain.
You are spot on, and if the general tax paying public knew how BAD things are, the outcry would be a hell of a lot louder. (Mind you I don't think anyone cares anymore)
Re: You say it like its normal
"......Android which every single black hat has concentrated on"
Applites seem so smug and secure. Have you read the latest security issues plaguing Apple?
W O W.
“But tablets don’t support Flash and we are seeing an increasing number of these.”
Reg? Why didn't you tell him that 'tablets' do support flash and that "iPad" purchasers should go without for purchasing devices that don't support the tech.
"....Ultrabooks – MacBook Air-like notebook computers"
They are nothing like MacBook Air.
Re: So, texting makes you invisible?
W O W the stupidity is off the scale!! Are you a woman driver perhaps?
"Someone walking near the road is someone who can step into the road; better slow down, in case they do."
REALLY!! So no one goes anywhere unless it’s at 10MPH in case the fukwit paying ZERO ATTENTION to their surroundings decides to just STEP OUT WITHOUT WARNING!
I really hope you don't have a driver’s license.
The Sales Men will say ANYTHING.
The MUGS believe anything!
"...even if it seems harsh to blame those being hit by cars for lacking the sense to stay out of their way"
No it doesn't! Who said that it does? They need sectioned.
Re: Darwin rules
Where do cyclists come into the article?
Video cable from PC to Telly, DONE! The telly remains a dumb item, just a screen, it doesn't need to be anything else when the desktop does the work.
Applites are not savvy enough consumers to be able to figure that one out for themselves. They need Apple to show them the way. Poor 'people'.
Thats not it's primary purpose, but that's the reality!
Jeremy Kyle will never go short of "guests" in Britian.
“…person who earns a million is more paying a higher absolute amount of tax. eg £300,000 while the lower income person on $30000 is paying just £10,000. Is that fair?”
YES! IT IS!
Is it fair that the millionaire is still eating caviar after paying his tax, while the lower earner is eating beans?
If you work hard you deserve a decent standard of living. If your lazy, then expect to eat beans and shut up!
Honestly, you need to ask your parents just which lolly pop stick they got their values from.
What a load of ole shite!
I don’t care what you have, as long as it's earned honestly and you’re not going to dodge your commitments.
If you've worked hard and earned millions, good for you. I'd be the first to say that it's deserved.
But that doesn't mean you them go on to avoid paying your way. Like it or not, if you earn more, you pay more!
"A country has to keep the rates for the rich sensible and at least comparative to other countries otherwise the people who own companies, especially less established ones, will simply leave and take the jobs with them."
I am so sick of hearing the same old argument.
One point you’re talking THROUGH YOUR ASS!
Go, fuck off and take your jobs, but don’t expect to sell or trade your goods in Britain! The HUGE profits earned from British consumers will be closed to you and YOUR COMPETITORS will HAPPILY comply and take the £100MILLIONS off you! Eventually make you bankrupt! So go and don't come back you greedy low live (tory) Jeremy Kyle "guest".
No one has the bollox to tell them where to stick it! If they want the £100Millions, then they play by our rules.
JUST PAY UP!
Scummy low lives avoid paying their way. So I pick up the tab??
There are Jeremy Kyle "guests" everywhere, no matter which country or class.
Just stop relying on 'me' to pay for public services, you Greedy Bastards!
WOW indeed, the parents did a very good job in dragging up its offspring to have no value in society, family, duty, respect, honour. Honestly, lower than a snakes todger!
Selfish, greedy, manipulative, useless twats.
reminds me of the .com bubble.
Don't waste your money. People are fickle and as soon as the next best thing appears, facebook will be binned by its user-base (the shallow 'people' they are).
Re: I've Already Installed Tor...
"Most people haven't kicked up a fuss.."
Most people do not understand their computer, let alone the impact of such a bill.
We all know how to obfuscate information using techniques already mentioned here. But your mum/aunt/grandmother/etc... have no clue. Its 'normal peoples' conversations being impacted. Those 'underhanded' persons will already be implementing counter surveillance techniques.
It's a waste of time and money really.
Thanks FB/Witterers! I prefer to use email and now the lowlives are primarily targeting you and not me.
bluetooth them! takes seconds.
Its the usual "Think of the children" brigade.
The same people who's children are high, pissed or pregnant at <16, whom are adamant that we should listen to them because they know best.
Good ole middle england! Engage mouth before brain.
"anyone with an ounce of tech knowledge knows exactly how to evade such an online blockade". Why are we paying these politicians?
So we are going to waste thousands of taxpayers pounds in allowing them to blow smoke? Those involved need to be highlighted and told of their failings.
I never believe anything I hear. I didn't believe it would happen and don't believe it couldn't.
Waste of public money.
"Cyber criminals have now recognised that Mac is an interesting area" since the great unwashed started thinking different and uptake grew.
Not really a glowing report for the minority, eh?
One of the major reasons for iPad's success is that it's easy for consumers to understand. (you can't give then too much info, they can't assimilate it)
iPad2,1 or 2,4 will confuse the great unwashed.
"Some broadcaster suits will take this as a call to make TV more interactive"
What a huge pile 'o steaming manure!
Of course, only since Web2.0reah have people "communicated" with each other as to story lines and plots of their favourite programs!!
Oi! The phone has been around for far longer. These services, like Facebook, are trying to serve up old school ways to interact, as new! Their not.
Re: I miss...
Tech has stolen that away from us.
Recording a "set" on MTV on your PVR.
"Taping" music from the radio (as it was)
Photocopying an article for future ref.
Ripping a CD onto your PC to so you dont have to keep changing discs.
It all happens all of the time, it happened in the past, and now the rest of society have finally figured out what a computer can actually do for them, it'll continue to happen in the future. Where were those whinging people in the 70's/80's when 1,000,000's of kids sat infront of the radio "taping" the chart count down?
The industry should have found ways to work with the public and stop trying to sue eveyone.
Like it or not, it's going to happen.
We should be able to sell/trade our licences. Because essentially or not buying a CD/DVD, your purchasing the right to watch the content. Ultraviolet anyone?
IP is just bollox, whether you like that, or not!
Re: Once again ... it's the APPS
I agree. However, 95% of all apps are a total pile 'o shite.
Banking, Train times, Ticketing, and apps of the ilk are useful. Farting cats, flash lights that merely light the screen, poxy games and the same are just rubbish! I don’t need a thousand million email clients, or task managers, file explorers, etc……
Say Bye Bye to the novelty value after a few weeks.
A smaller number of quality apps is what I want.
Most plebs are happy with the shite and choose iPhone/Droid.
Woz is right Winphone 7.5 sets the bar for UI use.
Re: Make your mind up man!
Yes! 'Cause one can't do the job!
