iClones always bang on and bloody on about Apple, but the reality is, everything that Apple does can and is done far better by its competitors.
Get over it, you're stuck in a bloated, dated and expensive eco system, and you really can not justfy the waste. Though "thinking differently" is probably enough justification for you.
"There's no shortage of UK content Apple could add if it had a mind to."
You'll have what we give you and YOU WILL LIKE IT!
Good ole Apple and their clones.
I do not believe I have seen a Nokia Lumia in the wild.
I'd fire you!
Clearly lost in your own world.
No marketing, EH?, WTF?, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? MARS?
People still think "i" is cool. They are yesterday's people, tomorrows people are still only waking.
Doesn't help much for BB.
Most buyers are just TOTAL sheep, following each other inanely, “ooh look at my iPhone! It can do…, well anything any other phone can do really” URGH!
I think if people would stop thinking "Oh it's Windows" and give it a chance, they would be pleasantly surprised.
The UI is FAR more clean, intuitive and faster than either iOS or Droid. It really is simple to use requiring fewer "transactions" to achieve any task. It looks great too. Once Windows 8 is released and its adoption takes pace, win phone will stand a better chance.
Critics need to be far more specific about their gripes, I can't see fault in the OS and the Lumia900 looks the business, by design WAY AHEAD of iPhone which now looks dated and old fashioned. Not to mention the stigma of being seen with one. YIKES!
It will take another generation before people will realise and move on, only to jump on another band waggon.
iOS is old and decrepit in its comparison to win phone 7.5. Let’s face it, iPhone has had its day, let’s put the old dog out to rest and move forward.
But, for now, the sheep will continue to follow the sheep, BAAAAAAA!
...we're all so used to the lies that......
..every single business spouts, that it you believe a word they say, your a bit dim!
Really, you think your being offered a service for your benefit? No.
Its to satisfy GREED!
DoJ will need to prove collusion actually occurred
......3 publishers paid up, surely thats proof enough!
My droid works perfectly without any issues at all!
W O W just how paranoid?
"They" just want to know everything about everyone!
the iPad could never be "better" than a notebook.
…….to say otherwise is ludacris.
Of course if you’re developing an iPad app, an iPad would be better! W O W Obvious!
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??).
"If you’re one of the many who open a bottle of wine in the evening......."
Your a total whino and seen as no better than opening the special brew!
I HATE 'wine people', the stench of "respectable alcoholic".
iPad is pants
so you can't be surprised the facebook generation are flocking to them!
lets hope it looks better the previous iOS's. iPhone looks tired thats it's physical design and its OS.
Mind you, the mindless will buy it even if it were a turd!
UK is size of smaller US states
Question to hack. WTF, stupid really!
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.
Re: Why bother?
same could be said for Farcebook.....
"...... in 6-12 months when you swap to an iPhone....."
EH? WTF! Who wants to go BACKWARDS? iPhone! Hello day old news, cancel AC's subscription, he's giving his business to behind the times!
FM Radio! why bother? FM will say bye bye soon.
"'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.
.......who is surprised by this?
We're all muppets to the money men. Nothing in the world matters more than money! How else can they "control" the commoner?
Sad pathetic small people.
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).
Composed on my Transformer.
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.
its all about money
What, a big company price fixing and screwing ther customers? Never. I don't believe you!!!
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!
"....though it’s a bit slabbish...." Why is this bad in a phone but good in a "pad".
"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!
World + Dog...
...need a SLAP!
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.
