"Some broadcaster suits will take this as a call to make TV more interactive"
What a huge pile 'o steaming manure!
Of course, only since Web2.0reah have people "communicated" with each other as to story lines and plots of their favourite programs!!
Oi! The phone has been around for far longer. These services, like Facebook, are trying to serve up old school ways to interact, as new! Their not.
Re: I miss...
Tech has stolen that away from us.
"cost anything between £399 and £659 a pop depending on the spec"
If someone else is buying it, they'll all go for 3G top spec at £659 each!
WASTE OF MY MONEY!
"Terabit Ethernet will surely go the same route, from technology dream through standardisation and production to everyday reality"
in 20 odd years. 40Gb is bearly a reality now.
Recording a "set" on MTV on your PVR.
"Taping" music from the radio (as it was)
Photocopying an article for future ref.
Ripping a CD onto your PC to so you dont have to keep changing discs.
It all happens all of the time, it happened in the past, and now the rest of society have finally figured out what a computer can actually do for them, it'll continue to happen in the future. Where were those whinging people in the 70's/80's when 1,000,000's of kids sat infront of the radio "taping" the chart count down?
The industry should have found ways to work with the public and stop trying to sue eveyone.
Like it or not, it's going to happen.
We should be able to sell/trade our licences. Because essentially or not buying a CD/DVD, your purchasing the right to watch the content. Ultraviolet anyone?
IP is just bollox, whether you like that, or not!
Re: Once again ... it's the APPS
I agree. However, 95% of all apps are a total pile 'o shite.
Banking, Train times, Ticketing, and apps of the ilk are useful. Farting cats, flash lights that merely light the screen, poxy games and the same are just rubbish! I don’t need a thousand million email clients, or task managers, file explorers, etc……
Say Bye Bye to the novelty value after a few weeks.
A smaller number of quality apps is what I want.
Most plebs are happy with the shite and choose iPhone/Droid.
Woz is right Winphone 7.5 sets the bar for UI use.
Re: Make your mind up man!
Yes! 'Cause one can't do the job!
Re: Looks aren't everything...
You definitely need to clarify this comment. Like what exactly?
What a W*nker!
Re: Also won't allow repeated answers
".....in their infinite wisdom,..."
You bought the "i"device!
I enjoy laughing.....
......at those whom can't even remember a simple password!
What hope has society got? People can't even remember a password or even think of a way to use the same passphrase in different configurations on different services.
"Have the last of Steve Jobs' ideas been used up so that all we're left with is the slow, sad demise of a once-great technology firm set to the wailing, moaning and gnashing of teeth of legions of fanbois?"
YES! if not the iPhone 4S certainly does!
Give it another 5 year and consumers will have the same contempt they have for Microsoft now.
"Browett pulled the UK's ailing DSGI back from the brink - and turned it into somewhere you can almost bear going to"
Thats a very subjective comment.
Shit, but faster! Great!
Or faster Shit.
HA HA HA HA
No. I'm not banging on and on about it virtues.
I made 1 objective statement.
"….taking existing products, executing them slightly better than everyone else "
iOS looks old, dated and clunky compared to winphone 7.5.
WP requires far fewer interactions to achieve the same outcome, it’s clean and uncomplicated.
BUT because its windows, consumer prejudice takes over and prevent them from being objective. They buy an iPhone because their mates have one, because its deemed a ‘premium’ device (hardly when they are FREE on contracts), it can only be seen as ‘buying’ status.
iPhone design is now years old and never really looked good anyways. The buzz is over! iPhone is dead, we can see that with the PATHETIC attempt of the 4S, which was a 4 but with Siri.
Don't forget, create a big enough buzz and consumers will buy anything, and Apple have their consumers number.
‘Appleites’ love to bang on about how sad Apple haters are (toady), but the reality is, I don’t hate Apple, I hate sheep. The mindless who grab onto a buzz and bang on and on about it virtues. THAT is sad!
W O W! re-read your comments and just think for a while of implications and how you come across.
"create breakthrough products" and not invented them! Even then, Foxconn "create" them.
Do to them as they do unto you.
Rapists, rape them!
Murderers, murder them!
Theives, Nick all of their stuff!
Getting the gist here? Eye for an Eye.
Then flog them, bring back the stocks.
It's not all about deterent, its about justice. An eye for an eye.
Deterrent or not, Killers should be killed! Eye for an Eye.
Better we get rid than keep paying to keep them alive locked up somewhere.
Re: It was obvious
But we are not! So?
We were never in that position, dispite what you care to believe.
Well done to the Tories! Round of applause!
Oh and that goes to the Tory voting Brits too. Well done!
Shame the bleedy obvious needs to be highlighted!
Tim Cook just looks like a bigger cock than he already is by making that comment.
Re: "rebranding Foxconn kit"
So Foxconn build, produce, manufacture the device, but still put someone elses name on it.
Sounds like rebranding to me.
You're underestimating just how dumb consumers really are!
They'll buy shit on a stick if the "buzz" were great enough.
pot and kettle!
""I've always hated litigation and I continue to hate it - we just want people to invent their own stuff," he said."
What a cock the man is! Of course, Apple invented 'everything'!
Wow they really are up their own arse at Apple Inc. The statement is a clear indication of how rubbish they are. Have they forgotten history?

One device, multi function! No iPad for this, Desktop for that rubbish.
In fact no "i" device at all. I don't want to be locked into a proprietary/closed system, no matter how shiny shiny it is.
"Perhaps more surprisingly, there's no one on the board from Google or Microsoft, nor for that matter any of the big four telcos: BT, Virgin Media, TalkTalk and BSkyB."
The Cock Up Countdown has started.
Never wanted Apple products. I don't want to be tied to a proprietary system!
I suppose that the number of consumers who make considered decisions, and not flocking to the shiny shiny, is ever decreasing. Speaks volumes!
Not read or failed to understand the impact
"Sometimes business stakeholders and IT don’t talk to each other enough, and sometimes they talk but fail to communicate.
Take the simple example of a request made for something that is technically impossible. IT proposes an alternative way of dealing with the requirement that can be delivered quickly and economically, albeit with some caveats.
The proposal is approved by busy stakeholders who either don’t look at the detail or fail to understand its significance. When the change is delivered, the response is: “That’s not what we asked for.”"
That point just needs to reitterated! Yes we serve customers, but the process is a *two way* street and that point is forgotten or not understood!
Yeah! Cause ITIL always works??
"....the handling of change requests can become either a lottery or a question of who shouts the loudes."
Usually the highest ranking staff member who shouts the loudest.
"The proposal is approved by busy stakeholders who either don’t look at the detail or fail to understand its significance. When the change is delivered, the response is: “That’s not what we asked for.”"
Bang on the head! In over 25 years in the industry, I have only worked for one organisation who were able to effectively manage change requests to the satisfaction of both parties.
"Every request, regardless of its magnitude and urgency, is forced through an intensive process of form filling followed by review and approval by every man and his dog."
Back protectors need to be "managed out" of the organisation! Never happens because it's not what you know it's who.
"Poor automation and the time spent keeping systems in sync, often manually, lead to unnecessarily high costs, slow response times and increased risk."
The usual, poor systems/procedures in place. Following "industry standards is not always the best path to follow.
I think nearly every reader can relate to at least one item raised.
It's always office politics, those who look the part but don't learn from failures (back covering).
Just cut the bull and get LTE out now!
Who cares O2/Voda are not ready, boo hoo for them. Why should the public suffer? If EE get a march, its only O2/Voda to blame.
Maybe *we* should take legal action against Ofcom for with holding desired tech because of O2/Voda's whinging on?
"....it'll so impress, fanboys" and the feable minded!
iPhone needs to upgrade. It currently looks aging and iOS needs a complete overhaul to make it look and function as a game changer. Owners are unable to realise this for themselves.
Not impressed in the slightest. But millions of losers will be.
the reality is Slackle and Penguin would burn their grannies to save on the heating bill (i.e. money grabbing liars)
Slackle are too far up thier own ass!
Parents don't have a clue!
"Tory MP Claire Perry, claimed that many kids in the UK were "accessing internet pornography" as well as other "inappropriate" material such as websites that promote self-harm and anorexia."....and Obviously! stands up shouts repeatedly, OI, PARENTS: Stop using the net to babysit or hand your kids into the nearest social services!
Enforced condom usage or sterifisation maybe the only thing that saves the UK. After all, we can't rely on you to do the right thing now, can we?
thats a very ill considered and one sided argument.
Hope it stands up when TITSUP occurs and your defending the reputation of your ogranisation!
You must definately be a gambling man.
now now ladies
to be fair, or malware ridden, yesterdays tech iPhone/iPad, leaking data because the "special" user doesn't have a clue!
"Work have standardized on some quite cheap tacky MS wired keyboard and mouse"
Bang on the head. That's why BYOD is popular. Because a small minority dont want what everyone else uses perfectly well (probably an iPhone user too).
You'd be lucky not to get a slap from me. Work supplied device or P45 your choice.
"If someone wants to work on an iPad that they bring in from home and we can make that workable then why not?"
W O W! What a ridiculous question! That fact you ask it speaks volumes about how little to know about the risks involved.
it will stop
when some big "Titsup" causes huge fines and a tarnish to reputation.
Grow some balls and say NO! You can't secure our data onyour device!
Publicly make scapegoats out of those whom are the cause of data loss, etc.
BYOD should definately not be allowed, if you care about your organisations reputation and data.
Re: White-listing certain apps gives no protection.
like for instance, a malware infested Android phone OR iPHONE or MAC or iPAD
The usualy troll spouting bollox. Well done!
The whole BYOD came about because someone didn't have the backbone to so NO are you kidding?!!
So investors get away with anything they wish! nice one! So they can commit murder or anything because they've got us over a barrel? Stop the stupidity and grow a spine.
If they want to play the game, bring it on. I'd ban them from trading in the country. I'm sure their competitors will be happy of the extra income. It's our country and they should be doing as we tell them and not bow to them.
It’ll never happen because our elected representatives are the heads of these large companies.
