Re: Want to bet...
An 8 year old has searched the net and found this as a solution!
Why have the perents allowed an 8year old to search the net! Why wasn't he playing outside?
WOW 'glish parents have no clue!
".....seen as evidence of a power struggle within the church....."
Or may be some is genuinely shocked at the Church's actions, they wish to expose them!
That can only be a good thing!
Be prepared for another £3Bn wasted.
Then the next time any political party or supporter bangs on about wasted money on IT projects, BOTH parties can be blamed!
"....whilst "we" don't mind giving private info to Fb & G in exchange for various services..."
WE DO mind! YOU may not!
"And as for that "use 15% of disposable income to keep them running" nonsense, well, this report is pants."
Little do you know! The earliest "i"clone adopters paid through the teeth to have the supposed status of owning one. That's one of the reasons why now being seen with one is akin to bragging about having a betamax!
"They'll happily hand over their most-personal information to Google and Facebook, let Amazon and Opera see every website they visit, and tell a stranger their passwords for a bar of chocolate, but being tracked by a mobile operator is apparently a step too far"
The differences being those people CHOOSE to hand over the info, and not have it STOLEN by the carrier.
And remember, not everyone DOES hand over information or is happy for Amazon or Opera to view their browsing habits. Companies seem to think they have a right to it and act underhandedly to obtain it!
Really hope it does happen. Couldn't happen to a more deserving company.
".......had the taste and good sense to follow you first..."
Eh? Confused! How, when why?????
Since when do Witter followers have taste or sense? 16 year olds would say that, till their balls drop! or some other "cool" social network becomes more popular.
Explains why iOS is not only crap and looks as old as Nora Batty's sockings!
W O W Apple, Same sh te, different day! Break the record will ya?
Yes, we know your product is poor. Yes, we know that once a punter buys a nexus, they'll continue to laugh loudly at Apple carriers and those (snigger) "Young, cool and trendy" types!
Maybe you should offer something better? iPhone *was* good, 6 years ago. It's not any more, get over it and move on with the rest of the world!
Get a life!
Are you kidding? If you are not, then W O W!
I'd like to see you repair a fibre cable when it is freezing cold, dark and dangerous! Typical English, engage the mouth before the brain.
Also, what is wrong with you, have you not got a mobile phone? Are you not able to connect via the mobile network in times when the fixed infrastructure is down?
All it takes is a little though instead of a lot of whinging.
(mumsy and father didn't do a very good job their)
If a person dies because 999 cannot be contacted, the toe rags responsible for cutting the phones off need to be properly and severely punished. Maybe charging them with attempted murder?
Not that the English know what “properly and severely punished” means. ½ can’t even control their own kids.
Thats how to parent! English "parents" could take a lesson here.
"Halliburton is the latest in a long line of companies...." to be mislead into believing that the iPhone would give them some status. Of course the reality is eveyone else whill see them as backwards and behind the times by 6 years!
W O W!
"iPhones are regarded as being highly aspirational" to the weak and feeble minded!
Hardly surprising. China flocks to buy a "tainted" iPhone. SAYS IT ALL!
"i"'ll still buy an iPhone and sign a petition. GET REAL!
All these iPhone users asking questions, most probably, why the hell did I bother with this? Should have got a decent phone.
"Apple's plea for fairness in mobile patent war"
What, like anyone can trust Apple!
" "LIVE services". The latter will alert the motorist to upcoming traffic issues (presumably to stop them slamming into the back of a long queue that has formed)."
Any driver who needs a box to tell them that a Q of traffic is ahead of them shouldn't be on the roads! 10 Years of driving and I've never needed one.
Mind you, watching the numpty drivers in England today, at least 1/2 of them need one!
"Fair Pay" My Ar e!
Its just another way these insurance companies can charge us higher premiums.
If you think otherwise, you'll understand as you age and gain some wisdom.
This should be made illegal now and stop the discrimination that it will lead to.
PUNCH anyone who purchases an iTV!
Apple telly has been available for YEARS and no one wants it.
Put an "i" in front and all the spazz's flock to it! See, I told you!
"That horrible MetroUI that's like it's been teleported from 1990"
WOW, can I have some of those drugs your taking? They seem to be very strong!
When, in the 90's, were live tiles used?
"But a taskbar where all the commonly used apps are permanently on it has worked brilliantly for me. "
I HATE IT! Why change what worked well for the majority?
Good lad, missed the point completely!
"...The smartphone market is one driven by a desire for unique and distinctive devices"
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!
If it were true, there would not be any army of iClones out there! They can't all be unique and distinctive devices.
The market is driven by sad people who believe that owning an iPhone makes them special. That "hey look I'm cool cause i've got an iPhone too" crowd.
Have you not worked that out yet?
you can say that again
"... the ASA will have its work cut out if wants to take on people for talking crap on the internet"
Christ! FB and Witter would be F cked if the ASA had teeth. Of course, like all UK regs bodies, they talk just as much c ap as they try to invesitgate.
More accurate reporting perhaps.......
"....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for a "DECENT" iPhone....." OR
"....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for an iPhone that doesn't make the owner look like a twat......" OR
".....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for iPhone 5 to be as good as, or try to be better than ICS..."
Like any iPhone owner cares about anyone else? BOLLOX. They only care that their peers see them with an iPhone, so they can inflate their status amongst their kind.
"Automated dialogue boxes generated by the malware further attempt to trick victims into handing over their telephone account number,..."
The best advice could only be, if you’re not quite sure what you’re doing with a PC and you’re really so gullible to reveal personal info to all and sunder, get rid of your computer and move back to the olden days, or get yourself some training.
They are only bringing this upon themselves.
"...I'm willing to bet you'd pay more to know that iPhone and iPad manufacturing was humane and safe. I know I would"
I'm willing to say that "i" owners should be thinking differently and stop following the crowd, BAAAAAAA!!
It's all the dogs anyway.
Now is the time for microslug to speed up development and be the first to market with gesture controlled PC's with the new style OS.
Just make it as vtech as posible, the punters will snap them up.
I hope they do a better job at handset design and iOS than they have in the past. Tho I doubt it.
Makes no difference, iPeople will buy any ole sh te.
".....then diagnosis by iPhone isn't far off"
Or any other device really, it doesn't have to be an iPhone.
Remember the majority don't need a phone to give them status, or an iOS thats as simple as vtech and as beautiful as a pimply ass!
(Hurray for Woz!)
"...........a quick, easy read... with large, readable type"
Perfect for the Apple user! Make it as Fisher-Price as possible so they can understand.
What a load of ole shite!
i dont do torrents (i pay for content).
i can stream movies etc..
i can download content.
I've a 4Mbps connection.
So why do I need to spend more money for a faster connection?
"Marathons were Men Chocs before they gave it a chick name."
"......not reflected in the broader consumer market."
Hardly surprising! These business types are getting their iphone paid for by their employer, in the mistaken belief that the iPhone gives them some form of status.
The only impression you'll give is that you’re unable to grasp anything other than 'easy'. After all iOS is as easy as fisher price.
(even Woz, its creator, reckons it's pants!)
