"Some people are very rude and they slam the phone down."....embarrassed that they not only purchased Apple, but could not even find the correct telephone number for their local Apple store. They should have asked SIRI.
Those Apples are becoming rotten.
Bugger the smart TV. My PC has been connected to the telly for years and years.
Yes the telly is a good medium for web browsing. I often browse web pages, with friends around the telly.
The telly just needs to display content I send to it. It doesn't need to have all of this functionality built in, I just want a built in sky decoder and fully fledged PC. The rest of the crap is just filler.
Easiest battery life improvement technique:
Bin the rotten Apple.
Go for a better phone. Maybe with a removable battery?
Re: @AC 08.32 Listen
"Cars are horribly inefficient and distances are much further (I live on the West coast). There is no equivalent to parking in the town center and walking around all the shops, we have to drive to each one we need to visit."
Sounds like poor city planning.
Re: @AC 08.32 Listen
Way to split hairs evilgav
"Yes, iphone same since 2007. Apart from
4 case designs
doubling screen resolution
6? operating system versions
3 SIM sizes
moving to LTE from GSM via 3g
starting an app store, which has generated $8 billion for developers
quadrupling the cameras pixels whilst increasing aperture
doubling the number of cameras
doubling processor speed over five architectures
octupling system memory
But apart from those, totally the same."
Yeah, exactley! They are the same, with incremental uplifts as tech allows, not because Apple innovated.
"make the OS as attractive as the hardware"
How, their both FUGLY.
"When Cook has the blues, he medicates himself by visiting an Apple retail store. "It's like Prozac," he said"
Funnily enough, seeing an Apple store makes me want to take prozac. Fking depressing.
Re: Even if the parent's knew how to restict their childs phone...
"however my wife says it would be unfair for our daughter not to have a mobile as most of her class has one."
That is the weakest excuse and also the most heard. Attending a seminar is not the same as paying attention or even understanding the seminar.
Re: Why an app?
""The Register would like to frame the question differently: why did FireReady have to be an app at all?""
Because the sheeple must have one to justify their poor tech choices.
When droid has the largest market share, surely writing for droid first would make more sense?
Not that most human beings have any.
"This is not because of any problem with the iOS software. It is just a symptom of the very complex nature of mobile comms, lots of different vendors, differing versions of firmware"
Of course its iOS at fault. Otherwise an update would not fix the problem iOS has caused.
Apple should be fined. My network connection is often intermittant (where it used to work perfectly), now I know why. Thanks Apple.
Re: Microsoft are planting these stories in the media
"Apple phones work. They always work. They are cool. I am cool. You should copy cool people. Buy an Apple phone. It works. It always works. Its cool. You can be cool"
Copying peolpe isn't cool. "Cool" WTF? isn't attained by purchasing something deemed as "cool" WTF?
Re: Problems with iOS6.1? nah!!
"Um, have they?
You're taking the word of two operators... yet other operators are reporting no issues."
..........and your taking the word of your lord and master.
Re: Problems with iOS6.1? nah!!
"My iPhone 4S is on EE, I updated to 6.1 about 10 days ago and have had no probl ems at all. Now 0n 6.1.1, no-one seems to appreciate that apple have done an update so quickly!!"
What sheeple don't seem to appreciate is that Apple should never have released the shite without thorough testing. So the bollox about "update so quickly" is moot.
iOS is as shite as the iPhone design.
Re: 6.1.1 just come out...
"6.1.1 just come out...
...to fix this very problem. So hush now fandroids, go to sleep."
"Hmm, since the end of Jan, my android device has intermittently stopped receiving calls/texts until I restart it. I wonder if it's related..."
Why do you attribute the problems to the phone? It's the network!
Re: Iphone4s DDOS update.
"I really surprised that people are still buying Apple crap."
Once you realise that sheeple haven't got a clue, it becomes unsurprising.
"and all phone users are affected by the fruity overload:"
So its the fruity owners who are causing my phone to drop off the network? Wankers!
it is time we collectively admit that social networking is pretty much crap, full stop.
This is all nonsense!
God made us all in the year 0000 and nothing else. If you don't believe you will be castigated and shunned by all.
"Why that 16-month-old device and not something else was not immediately clear"
Neil, your hack colleague has published an article about wasteful practices around IT purchasing.
Your "Why that 16-month-old device and not something else was not immediately clear" observation would suggest your approval of such practices.
There is nothing wrong with "that 16-month-old device".
If you really think so, then your demonstrating just how butt-f*cked you are by the advertisers.
I don't want to be watched all the time. I support kids wearing hoodies to avoid it. Good for them.
Also, I hope they shit on your doorstep."
Scummy kids from scummy parents. Another set of rats with no morals/dignity/education/worth.
Thanks for confirmation.
Apple will want to keep the cash to save face.
It might be another 20 years before being able to earn such amounts again, and that donut ain't going to be cheap.
Turn kettle on
Place tea bag into cup
Once water is boiled, pour water into cup. Allow to mash (Yes, yes, brew etc) for about 4 mins until you cannot see the bottom of the cup
Add a splash of milk (with teabag still in)
Wait a further minute or so, stiring for the last 20 seconds.
The using a spoon, drag and squeeze the bag up the side of the cup.
Sit down and enjoy and last 5 mins of your break.
It depends on the blend of tea. Sorry Lester, there is no black or white with the art of tea.
A nice early grey would not take too kindly to having milk added. It is not bitter and doesn't require sugar.
A cup of brand tea (e.g. Tetley/PG/etc..) must have milk added. This is bitter, so if you prefer bitter to sweet, you don't add sugar, else a small amount of sugar minimises the bitterness.
Of course you can't escape those heathens who must have more milk than tea and 3+ sugars, blurg!
Coffee drinkers are like the rats on the underground. Common, expendable, of no worth.
Oh no, scummy people hate me. Shocker!
"(I'm not actually English, but I am sick of whining idiots like you. If you hate the place so much, why don't you leave?)"
WOW you though that one out throughly didn't you? "whining idiot" or ENGLISH citizen who expects MORE from the scummy populace. You clearly don't give a shite about England, so maybe we would all be better off if "your sort" followed your own advice?
Re: Cameras everywhere
"No wonder our youth are all hoodies, I don't blame them!"
I do. Kids don't grow up to be men anymore. They grow up to obfuscate and not take any responsibility for their actions.
Seeing as kids learn the behaviour from their parents, seems that the majority of the adult English populace are, well, a bit scummy?
"The coalition government, keen to avoid being seen in the same light as the database and snooping-obsessed previous Labour administration, has issued a draft code of practice that it claims "introduces a philosophy of surveillance by consent"."
Typical Tory ploy which, unfortunately, the plebs will not see through like a pane of glass.
I hate the english. I hate being surrounded by dim-wits.
" increasing dependency upon short-life electronics "
I'm not. You may be. I assume that you are the type of idiot the advertisers (and Apple) love. If you can't live without changing your tech every "9 months", your parents didn't do a very good job at "raising" you.
Surely using paper would encourage this antisocial behaviour?
When will the plebs learn?
"it seems not to have caused problems other than making it hard to reach some web pages for a few minutes"
What is this craze, you must have a FB login to access other sites?
Don't they realise the 1,000,000's don't want a FB login?
Their loss, not mine.
"He said: "If you accept that number, you sell your soul to the devil.""
And I say it’s a number, between 665 and 667. THAT’S IT!
Anything else attributed to it is entirely social, made up fantasy by the SMALL human mind.
Thats more like it.
Re: cooling vent?
"A portable tablet-based device that requires a cooling vent and fans is obviously doing something wrong, and the battery life is hardly up there with "conventional" tablets (Nexus, ipad etc). It really needs a 7-9hour battery life, IMO, otherwise it's just another win8 laptop, albeit lighter/smaller."
Sounds like you didn't read or fully understand what was written.
"the iPad is sexy and fashionable in Executive circles"
Exactley! The iPad was sexy and fashinable, least decade.
When have the Executive circles ever been sexy or fashionable, or even in this decade?
NEVER! They follow a crowd.
Re: Brings the LULZ
"my policy of "only buy physical" will not be replaced any time soon."
Eh? I've not bought various types of "physical" entertainment for a long time now.
I'm not going backwards. Hideous collections of CDs/DVDs/VHS/Cassettes/Books on shelves all over the house? No thanks.
(Tho I ain’t getting rid of my vinyl for anyone)
Re: The study sounds plausible
"watching pr0n clearly showed to me that sexual orientation and preferences are quite solidly set and cannot be changed"
Married men who use rent boys.
Clergy fancying kids.
Gay men with children.
Not so sure about that.
Maybe the fear you can become homosexual through being influenced by something or someone comes from the individuals true (and sometimes unknown) feelings and not what society has taught them (from religious beliefs?) from the age you learned to speak.
More like it
Education was also positively associated with support for same-sex marriage
"I honestly look forward to the snooping bill becoming law.
Anything that keeps me and my children safe from terrorists and pedophiles is a good thing."
What! I bet you don't filter the internet connections to your kids devices.
Most of the time you don't even know where they are!
"People" like you make England sick.
"Nevertheless, we believe that the decline of available communications data will begin shortly to have a serious impact on the intelligence and security Agencies."
Yet the nosey bastard’s charter is used by local councils more than MI5! Total abuse of power.
Of course it's not the government that annoys me most, it's the British citizens whom have NO CLUE (about anything) about what is going on and really don't give a shit.
Honestly, I'm surrounded by IDIOTS! Idiots whose lack of caring (for their kids, never mind each other) means MY rights are eroded.
Re: Canned my account ...
"The only reason, was friends, acquaintances and family. I don't follow *anyone* else. I don't have any urge to gain more followers and I post seldom."
So you don't follow any one else other than friends, acquaintances and family. WTF? Yeah said it earlier, sharp, this guys very sharp.
