"......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!)
"Apple's momentum is incredibly strong" ....at the moment! History has shown us that.
The number of people starting to realise just how poor iOS is will see to that.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
Really?!? Skype, Facebook and Shazam on a tablet aimed at kids?
Not really very safe is it? My children are not allowed anywhere near face book. In fact NOBODY's kids would be anywhere near face book.
Dangerous parents deserve to have their kids taken away from them!
Why can't public bodies provide these services in a cost effective manner?
Why is it they always have to "outsource" to get a better deal?
Oi! Vodafone, you Pikey! Pay your way you troll.
Dont be evil!
NO, more like can't help but be evil!
Not that the employees would be any less evil. They would have taken advantage and ramped up wages given the opportunity.
Well done mankind, you bring it upon yourselves.
I can believe it!
After all iOS not only has the "your a bit thick" air around it, it looks and feels OLD and is just pants.
More and more people are coming to realise this. Give it another 3 years and that will only be compounded.
"....supposed admissions of wrongdoing under duress; they say he had spent a year in solitary confinement in Tehran's Evin prison, was beaten and was told of threats against his relatives."
Oh, WOW what an enlightened, tolerant and eductated scoiety they live in!
Their religious beliefs must be very pro life/human rights.
Figures! Thick tech for the rich.
It should not be allowed full stop!
I would explicitly deny all tracking for any purpose, and I should have the ability to block them.
@The BigYin totally agree!
Waste of time
"In its draft code of practice, Ofcom said that internet users should receive three warning letters from their ISP if they are suspected of copyright infringements online. Details of illegal file-sharers who receive more than three letters in a year would be added to a blacklist, the draft code said. Copyright-holders would have access to the list to enable them to identify infringers. Under the draft code, ISPs could also have to suspend users' internet access if they were found to be illegally downloading copyrighted material."
OK so i purchase a mobile dongle with an unregistered sim, what you going to do then??
What if i use a VPN?
Even when they do finally take action, they really think that it's going to stop piracy!
Guess what?? ITS NOT!
Fair access is what is needed, try to use the stick before the carrot and you'll be sorry. Be warned. People will not put up with it.
Many retailers already do, with collection and delivery being made to agreed partners (such as your local paper shop).
I've shopped on-line for nearly a decade now. Why does it take so long for people to catch up?
Shopping as we know it will die a death and more and more people realise the convenience of online. Shopping in store will truely become a hobby.
".....wife who took responsibility for paying the regular bills, between feeding children and keeping house while her besuited (and, quite possibly, pipe-smoking) husband was out earning the daily bread."
Oh WOW, your kidding with this sh te, aren't you?
Christ, stuck in the 50's are we?
Android for those who are willing to invest a little time to get a large reward, BANG ON
iPhone for the time starved (too time starved to learn how to use your phone! but can turn the telly on and send an email) and those who just don't care, BANG ON! The Brain dead.
I totally agree.
I support end-users. If I spend a little time explaining whats what, the end user is always 100% happy with their choice of Android handset.
iPhone users just don't want to listen/learn, it should just work. Well it does, it works well for those brain dead people.
But for the majority, they can, do and want to learn and understand their phone and what it can do for them.
The Malware thing! BOLLOX, i've not had any trouble. I tell people to check app permissions before installing and to use a bit of common sense. You don't allow a wallpaper to "make chargable calls" for example.
"The people I recommend the iPhone 4S for... people who are just scared of computers altogether and don’t want to use them"
Oh Wow, from the horses mouth comes the truth. I've been saying it for years.
Apple=brain dead. Gone is that Apple shine.
Really! 165 years!
Wow, so these so called "clever people" didn't even have the nouse to check behind the drawer?
So when the sh te starts to stink, Apple now want to be seen as clean as a baby wipe'd bum!
Too late, Apple is already smeared in it.
We are all F cked!
This goes way beyond hacking.
Once Iran's got a working Nuke, expect worldwar 3 to begin between these two CHILDISH societies, still banging on about a fictional character!
Just let them destroy each other, the rest of us are better off without any of them.
I love how these uber religious countries look down their noses at the UK.
We don't whore off members of our own family.
So much for their Honour! What honour? They have none.
" lack of education where tradition ("well, that's we the way we've always done it!") trumps the law, especially where the "elders" make the decisions"
Which is the reason I dont believe anything the English say either. Stupid traditions exist in the UK too.
I learned very early on to not listen to anything the English say. Especially those who choose to attend "Social clubs", Dads and Grandma's. This is where you will find the most dangerous rubbish being spouted.
".....Apple, Google, Amazon, and others are creating de facto completely legal monopolies by making it brain-dead easy to use their products."
Apple owners are definately Brain Dead!
And that is how you will be thought of, if your seen with their products.
proof, if needed.....
....that 95% of people out there are just SAD SAD SAD individuals.
Anyone buying of these monstrosities needs to be put to sleep like the rabid animal they portray.
WOW you really are a sad bunch! (Probably facebook using, iphone owning, tweeting lunatics who'll follow any fking crowd because you've no identity of your own!)
Let’s hope nature creates a disease that attacks your type and rids the planet of the dross.
What if I connect a recorder to a radio or tv or computer and record the output?
It's happened for years and years and will continue to happen regardless of what DRM etc.. systems "they" try to impose.
The whole industry needs to change or utlimately die!
"Our investment in Twitter...... " means we can control 'freedom' of speech within our Kingdom!
The magical Apple are human! WOW, shocker eh?
Don't believe everything you read on-line!
" allow Android to catch up with Apple"
I call into question your credability!
Do you always report Bollox?
Lets face it! The day of the iPhone is OVER. Like it or not, to be seen with one is to be seen as SO LAST YEAR!
That's life. It moves on. Get over it.
lets face it everyone thinks that their call IS more important than the life of the twat in the car behind/beside/in-front of you!
Well done people.
