iPad or not, I don’t care.
However, wasting public money on this highlights the depraved and corrupt in our society!
You don't need an iPad when an android tablet can do the same and more!
People only want an iPad in the hope it will increase their status.
I ensure that those people have a bite of reality, when I tell them that Apple owners generally require the most 'help' with the basics and their devices are just too "Leapfrog/Fisher Price" for me!
A bit wide of the mark
"There are commercial LTE roll-outs in many parts of the world, but here there are just a few, closed trials. Ofcom currently anticipates LTE being implemented in the UK in 2013-14, with "wide availability" by 2015."
I've heard that subject to regulatory approval, EE could roll out 4G in 2012.
if one were to buy a brand new Jaguar or Land Rover.....
...you would be buying a FORD, or a badge which shouts to the world you have no taste AND are probably overwieght and middleaged.........
oh! Another "virus" in the Virus Free MAC world!
Apple just needs to bend over a take it for 1/2 hour from Motorola! Let them shaft each other and sort it out.
You are making yourselves look STUPID! (not that that is difficult for Apple, just look at the 'leapfrog' inspired iOS)
".......nobody can resist the charming of iPAD. The effect on iPAD is overwhelming in the human history" - Fantasy!
Reality - Humans are sheep, easily sucked in by hype. This is proven by the fact that tablet computers were invented WAY before the iPad, but because people need some status which they assume they can purchase, the iPad has been successful amongst those weak of mind.
Irresponsible and Dangerous
"GPS jammers can be bought on the internet for those wishing to defeat tracking systems which might be installed in vehicles........ and by people who fear that they may be under covert surveillance or who wish to avoid inadvertently generating records of their location by other means "
Then these means MUST be provided and catered for, else SENTINEL are erroding personal privacy and have NO RIGHT to do so!
ALSO, why are we relying on such a flaky tech for such serious matters? Cop out, thats what it is!
"that means no iPad3 guess I'll have to go for the Transformer Prime (kind'a leaning that way anyway, but can't find one in stock)"
The words "can't find one in stock" say it all!
It's nice to see that people aren't just sucked in by Apple sheen and gloss, and they realise that far superior products are available.
"for me, all that's missing is a working SD slot" and for me, a product that doesn't carry a social stigma being seen carrying one!
Like it or not Applites, this is the truth that can't be avoided.
Re: This could be...
HAHAHAHAHAHA W O W!
Where 'in the West' would be more ethical?
Fool yourself, not foolin me!
It's the usual STUPIDITY!
The only way to resolve the issue is to find a fair and resonable way to distribute content, or FOREVER try the whip without success!
Why don't "these people" just accept it and work toward a REAL solutuion?
BUT NO, They do not have the mental capacity to do so, so the situation will continue.
I mean, cutting people off! HA! We could always find ways around draconain 'blocking' measures.
The stupidity continues............
"Cupertino hopes the Guangdong High Court will see sense..."
Eh? That patent is valid in their territory!
Is absolutley brilliant and Urinates all over the iPad.
Shiny fruity tech is now obsolete!
Re: Sharp corners?
I suppose you have to be careful when giving them to children!
Re: IP57 is not really a waterpoof rating, IP68 would be
I hate to be petty....BUT, you will be.
Must be Windows Phone mobiles, as that is where they belong!
More bollox. Do you have one? Have you tried one? No!
Re: Do Europeans go swimming a lot with their phones?
This is probably one of the most stupid comments i've read.
"Sir, would you like your phone to work if you accidentally droped it in water, or not"
"Hmmm, no I think I'd rather it break"
What ever happened to personal liability?
If your stupid enough not to check the address you have entered, and even more stupid enough to provide your contact details to all and sundry, then you deserve to be ripped off.
Only YOU are responsible for your own safety/wellbeing.
Being ripped will certainly educate web users!
iTV already exists. Apple TV just hasn't sold well.
Put an "i" infront and they will fly like hot cakes to those "cool and trendy" punters who were not clever enough to purchase it in the first place.
W O W! Most humans really are thick! Doesn't matter where they come from.
Sad pathetic lowly people.
"......they assume they're all as good as each other, when it turns out to be sub-par, they think their friend's iPhone is the business....."
Because they were not clever enough in the first place to check out the spec's, to do some research. So those same people go for an iPhone.
Which is what I've been saying for years now, iPhone users are usually brain dead, so being seen with one doesn't make you look cool or trendy. It makes you look like you don't know what your doing!
I dispair at this country! Society is becoming "thicker" by the generation.
"Why don't these childish idiots get together in a meeting room somewhere and sort it out."
Oi! Apple, take it like the girl you are!
It's really quite tiring.
Oh it's more than tiring. It's bloody tedious. When will you people STOP f king banging on about it?
It’s a poxy tablet, an idea that was borne YEARS before Slackle created theirs. If it wasn't for the success of the ipod, the iphone and pad would not have been as successful.
Remember, human beings are SHEEP. Enough people bang on about a product and eventually everyone jumps on-board. So much so, that now it's NOT COOL to be seen with one, because the world, their dog and its fleas have one, each "person" thinking "look how cool I am". Everyone else thinking “W O W, you’re as thick and three short planks, and as deep as a puddle”
JUST STOP THE CR_P!
“Over the last few weeks I have been subjected to an extensive personal attack by my political opponents as a result of certain legislation that I have introduced in the House of Commons on behalf of the federal government,” he wrote in a widely-published letter to constituents. “These attacks, which have included criminal acts and threats of criminal acts against me and my family, have been referred to the police for investigation.”
The electorate are responsible for voting for someone who is clearly not fit for the position!
Did he really think he could stamp on others rights without backlash? If he did, then W O W!
"One of Steve Jobs' strengths was a strong understanding of visual impact."
Eh? W O W. And here's me thinking Slackle has 1000's on the pay role, but everything was down to Jobs!
Binned! Next comment........
Why do I get offered less protection than a child?
The risks are the same to me!
It's Everylie Everytime! Of course they will keep tight lipped over speed restrictions.
You just can not believe a word they say!
Stroke of luck for Google?
Your hacks really do favour Apple, even when Apple won't give El Reg the time of day!
"As the game market evolves, Nintendo seems unable to move beyond creating games that rely on the image of Mario,"
My first though when I hear Nintendo is the Wii! Not mario. Their wildly broad claims are BUSTED.
You can only pitty them, or maye section them to protect the public!
Re: "driven by greed"
Of course! Poor Apple, they are not driven by greed at all are they?
Apple produce their products for the good of human kind!!
Proview are doing EXACTLEY the same as Apple, trying to maximise revenue over their IP. Apple does the same thing day in and day out.
DOUBLE STANDARDS. But Apple will get away with it again.
Thick as pigs s ite patene office will grant it.
Cause it's Apple and only Apple innovate!!
I suspect that some one is receiving it in the rear from Apple, which is why they are the Americans golden boy and seem to win every fight! It's just too suspicious.
Here we go again!
These patents are ridiculous! Pateneting and method of unlocking the phone by sliding your fingure across a screen? Really! That was pateneted?
W O W F ckwits! Humans really are F ckwits!
"If this causes them to take their eyes off the road more than before the ban, then the bans may make texting more dangerous rather than eliminating it."
This excuse is used in a variety of situations. It's bull sh te! Strict enforcement, in this case life time driving bans and mandatory jail time EVERYTIME will make people think twice! Make offenders punishments visible.
And if they still break to rules and plough into a truck, then they have instrumented their own punishment!
I can hear the cries now! STOP pandering to the weak and enforce our laws effectively!
Seems the Americans are sexual deviants! Insisting on body scanners in the name of security. No one believes you!
Unfortunately, the display suffers from an acute viewing angle, ..... very difficult to read from oblique angles at the sides.....
This is a bonus, extra security, more difficult for passers by to snoop!
