W O W just how paranoid?
"They" just want to know everything about everyone!
All costs should be borne by Apple inc.
After all, THEY fixed ebook pricing and it has taken public resources to reslove the matter!
Bill them for the time spent and fine them for being 'bent'.
".......give the UK's energy regulator Ofgem, the power to "compel" the companies to pay compensation if it deems it to be appropriate."
Like Ofgem could or would. Got no balls to fine them for fear of litigation.
You want to sell it in my shop, you can't dictate its selling price! Is that concept too hard for devs to understand? Or are you just too greedy to care?
Amazon's model makes good business sense, till someone else tries to kill it, then gets hauled up by the DoJ (Apple and ebooks??).
iPod was just rubbish! iPhone was innovative and desirable to some (like 5 years ago), iPad is just as FUGLY as the rest of the "i" devices. 6 years later all of the sheep are chasing FUGLY devices to buy somes status.
Never forgot, the populace are SHEEP and will follow any trend that makes them think they are ahead of the game and not actually a piece of the machine as in reality.
"'iTV' may be heading into production sooner than we think" Of course it is. There are a load of slavering drooling clones dying to buy another Apple product. They need the "status" that owning one gives them (or so they think).
All it will take is another new shiny product and telly advert and they will be all over it!
Hope it doesn't look as amature as iOS. Thats one god damn fugly OS.
Think of the New iPad 4G as Apple laughing as hard as it can all the way to the bank with fools gold, and get on with your life. Its a tablet, and you only want one to buy yourself some supposed status. It still runs iOS which now looks as poorly designed as a leapfrog toy, but at least its fool proof, just as well for those fools who (chortle) PAID for one (rofpmsl).

Oh! So those who are clever enough to realise that FB is an unneccesary waste of time, because we can still contact our friends and colleagues without posting on a "wall" are now considered Luddites'?
What a fool! I'd have laughed at them and pointed out the errors in their thinking!
The reality is, if you don’t accept the fact you’re a commodity, you can't use the app. It's not good enough, but will not get any better where money can be made. You are just cash to someone else. They don't care less about you or your "supposed right" to privacy.
Re: Difficult to stop privacy breaches w/o leglislation.
Democracy DOESNT work! Look at the failure of the States! The ‘capital’ of do whatever you want except be a terrorist or a paedophile!
Humans beings are not intelligent enough to know or decent enough to care.
"I'm not personally interested or involved in any of the 'social media' apps or organisations, but I do use Apple kit and I'm interested to know the context in which these allegations are being made. My email, for example, is handled by Apple servers and therefore a large part of my communication is constantly uploaded to Apple"
Oh well, nothing to worry about there then!
Really, it doesn't matter if it's Apple, Google or Microsoft, we are all just currency to them.
Live in the 21st century and be"traded", or live in the "dark ages" and keep your privacy (to an extent - after all your mates iPhone's got you contact details in it, so no matter what you do, 'they'' have got you).
proof, money doesn't buy taste
Re: Of course
To the down voter..."Boo Hoo" thats the way it is, sorry! Everyone does it, not just 'cause you own a device that's deemed fisher-price thick and looks so out of date, but also 'cause of the way you look, the colour of your skin, your "fashion", your footy team.....etc......Pick one!
Get over it. Be seen with one, be labeled (usually thick tw t).
Re: I bought one!
And to justify your purchase clearly highlights the inner shame burning inside you.
And rightly so, ......purchased for displaying photos..... yeah right! Not clever enough to purchase a digital photo frame, or are you’re going to continue justifying your stupidity with more nonsense reasons as to why a photo frame isn’t sufficient........ PLEASE!
Re: Let's all think different...
....till thinking differently means NOT purchasing Apple!
All of these individuals being individual...........
W O W The STUPIDITY of people is off the scale!
Re: Co incidence
Why is his business case for a Hi-Res screen? He'll get a v2 unless he geniunely has a case for a V3.
No-one has the bollox to say it tho.
Sad people buying some social status, it's tragic.
The Transformer Prime is way better. "Retina" screen or not.
Apple is hardly placed to slam Proview.
Don't you just HATE LIARS!
"If you haven’t had a tablet computer before, this looks like it is head and shoulders above the competition" That definately needs jsutified!
Sorry but that is complete RUBBISH! A transformer Prime is better even without 3G.
If your a mug who believes everything you hear, buy one, else, dont watse your money because it has a shiny screen.
Re: Most unfortunate if true.
"otherwise somebody is taking the piss out of them"
Yeah, Every non iPhone user!
"He said the vendor was taking delivery of stocks on a weekly basis and confirmed that major resellers were hogging the stock, claiming the amount of kit Asus could provide was "nothing close to actual demand".
Nice to see that not everyone (as El Reg hacks would make you believe) wants an iPad.
".....1600-odd technology buyers in US firms......"
Seem to be a bit cr p at their jobs! Tablets have been around for a while, why did they have to wait for iPad to gain the benefits of mobile computing???
Some people just need to be sacked, and "big biz" needs people who can move forward without waiting for the crowd!
W O W!
"The OSM data – after a quick massage by Apple – is displayed when users use iPhoto’s “locate” feature to display where the photo was shot. According to the OSM Foundation, Apple has taken a data set from 2010, which it is serving from its own infrastructure."
Great service from Apple.
Oi, iPhone owner! Buy a decent phone!
You’re being lied too and you’re accepting it. It's only 'cause it's your (RUBBISH|DATED) iPhone you're prepared to put up with it!
HSPA+ is NOT 4G, doesn't matter what AT&T say.
Have you not realised that big companies will say anything for your dollar? (Stupid question, he bought an iPhone) They are about as credible as a peado denying an erection in a playground! (And as morally bankrupt)
So How the F can HSPA+ be 4G??
3 crusty old judges
with no idea of how the internet works making a judicial decision on this?
British in-justice for you!
It's a vaccum, not a Hoover!
It's sad to say, but it's true.
Jo Public only has the ability to use dumbed down; damned U G L Y one size fits all devices! Those of us with a clue are being dragged down with the rest of them.
Soon there will be no choices, because choice will no longer be what the majority want. Sad Facebook updating, wittering, brain dead wankers will fu k it for all of us.
stupidity knows no boundaries
pssssst! Want a genuine brain upgrade and 1/2 the normal price?
Really? A new iPhone for £200? You believed them? M U G!
The English are rubbish at most things.
Re: If you can't turn it off......
…….the administrator will when configuring your "work" desktop when you log in.
Maybe metro is aimed more at the consumer (and ever growing tablet market), and enterprise will be able to tinker in the exact same way they do now!
Though MS has got to get this right or dreaded iOS lovingly created by Fisher-Price, may take a larger slice and we'll all be doomed!
I have similarly complained to Apple about their UI looking like it was produced by Fisher-Price and is U G L Y! Nothing happened, FAIL, APPLE!
"i" owners will be oblivious and most not clever enough to contemplate the implications.
If they need an OS that’s that Fugly and Dumbed down, then they can hardly be expected to know what’s happening with their data/phone!
Democracy doesn't work! Simple as that!
If it did, those who are supposed to be WORKING FOR US, wouldn't be sending in the cops AGAINST us.
If I were a COP, I'd had to dig deep to IGNORE what it is right and wrong. Though they are taught to be corrupt very early on.
......yet "Leapfrog/Fisher Price" iOS is lapped up. Talk about f cking UGLY! People have told me they wanted an iPhone because it's simplistic. Thats one of the reasons I believe iOS users need 'special' assistance. (They're a bit thick.)
What goes round, comes round.........
After all, thats exactley what Apple is doing to its competitors and its customers! It's all about the dollar to them.
