there may be 10 usefull apps out their on any platform.
Other than those, who needs 100,000 talking cats and the rest of the absolute SH TE devs try to push.
Only the f cking brain dead are interested.
Re: iWoz, more like iHasbeen
an "ihasbeen" has more standing than an iwannabe_but_never_achieved_it
If your asking such fundamental questions, maybe you should pack away all of your kit and get your pad/pen/envelopes out.
Then you have the nerve to slate an experienced engineer.
Does anyone listen to your opinions?
Re: but but
"With Apple you sign away your rights to everything anyway. You're not permitted to use the phone any way you want. You can't root your phone and use the hardware with any software you choose."
It never ceases to amaze me just how many people don't know or care. Let them be burned.
Re: A sane
Wanna hear what inexperience sounds like?
"Re: A sane
Gmail, Hotmail, Flickr, online VMs for testing the list goes on. People are already using online services for many things.
Woz is old school, he's an electronics engineer and hardware hacker. Why does his opinion count in the world of software and online communications?"
I hope for your employers sake your not a techie. Sounds like you don't know what your doing.
Techies don't keep their data in the cloud. Non-tech people just follow the fad, how do you think the i devices have become so popular.
I hope Woz's predictions come true.
No wonder game players go nuts. Their lives are so boring playing computer games.
"......helplessly watched a hacker remotely erase and lock his iPhone, iPad and MacBook after his iCloud account was hijacked. It's a cautionary tale against relying too heavily on one cloud platform."
Automatic, Everywhere, not so clever after all!
"Given that Samsung have a history of giving out "spliffs", incentives to individual salesmen for meeting sales targets, then this is a very real problem."
Somehow I don't think its Samsung salesmen smoking spliffs.......
Do you really love a BRAND that much! Suppose $600oddM CAN buy the weak minded, so the Apple advertising budget is justified.
UK law makers are complete w nkers! Well done for totally showing the UK up. Why are these 'people' allowed to even breathe?
Re: Makes their customers look rather foolish?
"Makes their customers look rather foolish?
What, like all customers of the bank RBS look foolish because their choice of bank had an IT problem?
Like customers of all banks look foolish as the banks instigated the global financial meltdown?"
How can the two be compared?
RBS = Inexperienced staff.
Apple = Spitting the dummy.
Re: Playground stuff again
"Samsung is the one being the most idiotic here. Arguing about some evidence that the judge has repeatedly said can't be used. Then Samsung leaks it to the press to hopefully influence the court case, that's contempt of court.
Sorry, but if you messed up your evidence submission then that's too bad. You can always appeal and then submit it. It's not like anyone is going to be locked up if they are found guilty."
Re: Playground stuff again
Apple are showing themselves up.
Its akin to a toddler stamping their feet and screaming.
Makes their customers look rather foolish.
"[Wot, no Asus Transformer? - Ed]"
Clearly he's a "cool" guy and need his iPad to give or boost his status then.
Of course sensible folk would have purchased a transformer and not had the hassle.
Apple trying to patent the bleedin obvious again!
"Charlie Miller, best known for his work in exposing security weaknesses on Apple smartphones and desktops"
Keeps him busy!
Re: Retarded Maths by the reg as usual
"RIM sales up 63pc, Samsung up 50pc, Apple up 36pc. There's the thrashing, in terms of sales growth.
Don't waste your time, they refuse to listen.
Re: "idiot tax"
"Aren't you the charmer. Has the crass insult become the humour of choice on El Reg?"
No, just pointing out the flaming obvious. Sorry if the truth offends.
"If my daily commute observations are to go by, where are all these Samsung/RIM tablets? Most are still using iPad's." Shocking isn't it. People still don't know how bad it is to be seen with one. Mind you, the british aren't known for being the sharpest pencils.
If Lucy Koh gets her way, we'd all have an apple phone!
Oi, Lucy, NO!
I prefer my phone, I don't get a "twat" label by being seen with it.
User base growing or not, I don't want one, don't need one. I know how to use my phone and the rest of my tech. I don't need it to be made fisher price for me to be able to use it.
Judge Lucy Koh sounds like a right iSheep.
Nothing to shout about. Won't stop the iSheep claiming it to be the best thing since conception.
Looks pretty bland, not much different from the *yak* glass/steel of the last one.
See the back isn't glass this time. Suppose they've realised just how much of a bad idea that was.
Lets hope iOS6 looks nicer than sick splashed over ice.
The last update gave the sad excuse for a feature Siri, lets see what crap Apple comeout with next.
Frightened of custody?
But not so afraid to prevent his actions.
" His defence barrister had attempted to pass his actions off as no worse than anything Prime Minister David Cameron or London Mayor Boris Johnson might have done in …"
I'd have charged him with contempt of court.
Re: Surely the point is
Knew it wasn't going to be Apple at fault.
Re: Too true
"Yeah, yeah. We're all overworked and underfucked ... get over it. If you don't like what your paid to do then get a different job. If you're going to take their money then keep your mouth shut."
Is that a thumb print on your forehead Doug?
"one of the senior IT support managers at one of my client workplaces confessed this week that his experience of IT support 'from the other side' was disappointing"
I provde support AND I'm a customer of the support service. Not rocket science.
Re: common sense at last
Let’s not just charge them, let’s charge them! Send ‘em a bill to cover the cost of the wasted time. If fact lets bill all dickheads, especially those who make hoax 999 calls and drunks who cause nothing but trouble. Why should I have to pay for their ridiculousness?
Re: Grow up and recognise twitter isn't private!!!
"And how do you tell a threat from a joke? No one has answered that yet."
If you don't know by now, you never will.
Mummy and Daddy didn't do a very goog job dragging you up. Hey, british parents, what can you say. Even the basics aren't covered.
"Amazingly, foreigners want to watch The Jeremy Kyle show " to laugh at us!
Hardly surprising tho, most of the British are nothing but PIKEYS.
Chavvy, Weetabix teeth, illegitimate, smelly and oh so stupid, pikeys. Not even just the clampets on the council estate, its the upper and middle classes too.
Well done mums and dads, grandads and grandmothers. I'm ashamed to be British.
Re: Fuck you google!
"The reality is that Google started very late in the game and now feel entitled to the industry's best ideas for free or next to nothing"
Have you been living under a rock for the last 6 years?
"Universal search? Someone paid to create that."
BOLLOX, end users were wondering why the feature hadn't been available for ages.
Stop your pathetic attempt at supporting Apple's hypocrisy
Re: Prior art?
" Does it not seem like a logical step to be able to search phone content and internet content?"
It is. That's why Apple a jumping all over it, to protect *their* invention! The same invention which has been available on multiple platforms for ages now.
Typical Apple, they invented the world don't you know.
Re: Ah, the Notes application ...
The whole OS looks like 80's wall paper!
So old hat.
OS that’s powerful, attractive and even cool.
The quickest way to dissuade? Use the word "cool".
Keep it on your PC (Automatically backed up of course).
Remote access to your machine.
No worries about which cloud service will last the longest.
"90's" tech it may be, but it's the best option, privacy is not such a great concern, sharing is done on your terms, plus you don't get the "crowd follower" tag and you don't look foolish when blogging about just how bad cloud is at a later date. Win Win.
If Devs are turned off, good for me!
More money for me then.
Talk about cutting off ones nose.........
"Stanley Kubrik infringes on Apple's inventions"
Is that a considered opinion? FM!
Didn't think it was possible, especially from an AC.
Does anyone else find it a bit creepy? A world full of iClones and no one to question it?
I regularly demonstrate 'droid and windows phone handsets and all who are interested, and people are impressed by both options. People regularly say that "they thought only an iPhone could do that", and "really, an iPhone doesn't do that?"
Those complaining need to think again and stop relying on tech. They should know that if it can 'break', it will, and not complain when it does.
Yes, inconvenient, but not unexpected and not unavoidable.
"The patent was rejected for obviousness in 2009 and then again 2011, and was only finally accepted after Zuck agreed to revise three of its claims. Even in its final form, it's arguably still very broad."
Yet the USPTO still agreed it. I mean W O W. You hear lots of really stupid comments, thoughs and opinions daily but the yanks PTO beat them all hands down.
Not the greatest advert, eh?
I have ZERO faith in Judges!
One says one thing and another contradicts it, these people are the biggest bunch of fkwits going.
Can anyone advise just which wanker decided that capitalisation was shouting?
When I shout, I do not do so using capital letters!
Its just another wank decision adopted by the great unwashed.
Re: Let me get this straight...
"The Korean chaebol has no doubt been popping the champagne corks as a UK court decided that Tabs weren't as cool as iPads so they couldn't be copies and, oh yeah, Apple should have to take out ads and paper its website with notices saying so. But on the other side of the Atlantic, the firm is not doing so well in court."
UK = 1, USA = 0.
What a surprise, the yanks are backing a yank company. No bias there then, eh?
Re: Not hard to guess why
but very easy to speculate it seems......
Re: Obvious isn't it?
OR, you'll say anything to protect the *sniggers* integrity *grins* of your beloved Apple/iPhone.
Re: Accessing the address book
"because you use the API to access the address book, it doesn't mean you're uploading it all to your server"
Your kidding right!
And just because your staring at page 3, it doesn't mean your thinking how good it would be to give her some jewels, like your pearl necklace, yeah?
