"looks less like justice and more like judicial spite"
Which is exactly what it is! Well done to the 'cains, way to make your brethren look stupid!.
Re: +1 for the bike analogy
"At the moment they all do about the same things about as well - as much a case of personal taste as anything else."
And what influences our decision making?
Wankers saying look my phone can do this (bragging rights in the pub, for those still to leave the school playground). iPhone is popular because of your peers, because of the marketing machine, because owning one gave you kudos.
Win phone 8 OS just dusts the floor with iOS, but because its windows you deem it a failure and gives you no bragging rights.
Said it before and I'll say it again, I hate iSheeple. Blind followers who bought one cause their mates were "showing off". If anyone tried to "show off" an iPhone to me I'd laugh loudly in their face and point out their folly.
Re: It's like the bike
"No one said the bike hadn't changed. The analogy is the apt because the comparison is not the details, it's the UI. "
So when Apple finally make improvements to iOS, you'll say that they are not needed?
Re: It's like the bike
"It's like the bike" Yeah, the penny farthing!
Re: It's like the bike
"Not all people are tech heads, and all they want is something that's easy to work "
Tho, asking for an opinion on a phones capabilities from someone who just wants something that is easy to use is a folly.
"Not sure why you think that is funny."
Simply, because to an iPhone owner, no other phone is better than theirs. That is why those who are not stuck to Apple can laugh at their lack of objectivity.
Re: " Most of its one-time advantages are now commodity features"
"At some point you arrive at designs that work for you personally - why then upgrade?"
You're still using an 386 with win3.1 then?
What a load of trot. You simply can not imagine what to do with a 2013 feature set. You seem stuck with iPhone and that is just SAD.
"the use of the term "solution" to describe a combination of hardware, software, and services is a bit old hat, as well – just like the iOS smartphone operating system"
"iPhone owners – respect is somewhat like that which you have for your granddad"
Spot on! Been saying ir for a while now. I think iPhone owners recognise this themselves.
Only the isheeple would disagree. It is old. Very old. Apple need to pull a trick out of the bag to prevent them from looking aged. Last decades innovation is wearing thin.
Re: May explain why Apple don't let users have them
Oh, the deluded!
Oh Apple Shinier than ever! Apple would not do wrong!
United states of iran?
"FBI has wielded its unprecedented surveillance power in recent years"
No one in any country is safe from spying eyes/ears!
No need to spy on me, I'll tell them exactley what I think of "them"/the country.
sick of it
Appalling re-shapes an existing idea and the unwashed sing and dance and cheer “Oh Appalling, you’re so good, great and true. No one can innovate like thee.” Typical dumb ‘cains.
Samsung innovates and the unwashed cry out that their innovations are rubbish, until they realise what can be done (i.e. waiting for a killer application of said innovation, instead of finding out for themselves).
Why is it the same old story day in and day out?
Re: Things I'd like to see in a future iteration of a 'smart' phone.
"plethora of garish plastic toys my kids use"
and they still play with the box. A kids imagination is infinately larger than any of the toy manufacturers.
It begs the question why have you wasted a ton of cash.
Re: Things I'd like to see in a future iteration of a 'smart' phone.
""Yes, I control my TV with my phone" - signed: Absolutely Nobody"
Sorry, I control my TV and sky box with my phone. It's not a decicated device, but I can and occasionally do.
"UK or US?
British buy on Price. Americans buy on the best tool for the job and then the price. it's a significant difference that means that all these surveys that compare the Brits to the Yanks are lopsided and don't give a true reflection. Prime Example: Blair sent troops to Afghanistan licking up to Bush. How wrong was that?"
What a load of bull shit! I fear for our kids, they have no clue.
Re: Newer versus better
"Windows 8 is more recent than OSX. I rest my case."
The OS is brand new, unlike 00's iOS. You do realise that the year is 2013?
Your iPhone makes looks as outdated as your beliefs.
"Of course, driving with such blood-alcohol levels will lead to severe legal penalties: whereas taking a call using a handsfree device will not."
Just another demo of how confused my "peers" are! Well done England, FAILED AGAIN!
Of these reponses you can gain that 1/2 of the commentards are 20s and under. Their inexperience stands out.
"Cash pile increased by $600m to $2.9b last quarter. Does not match your incorrect statement."
Finally, there is at least 1 commentard with a clue to what is really going on and not just respewing the same old story.
Never Going to Happen
"Clearing the rest means moving everyone onto Freesat, or squeezing the transmissions into MPEG4 and DVB-2, or rebuilding the entire broadcast network as a single-frequency system, all of which would be hugely expensive and disruptive, much to the delight of Sky, Virgin, NetFlix and other internet-based outlets."
Why is public money being wasted? This would never happen so why throw £0000's at a private consultancy to be told what we already know and propose something that will not occur?
Once again, the governemnt waste our money.
You know the only reason iOS, Android and Windows exists is so Apple/Goole/Microsoft can harvest all your personal data and browsing habits while feeding you delicious adverts right?
""With the existing number of 22 gTLDs set to be expanded to a potentially endless extent, brand owners potentially face hundreds of cases where typosquatters could register similar domain names to their registered marks. There will be a number of routes brand owners could take to tackle typosquatters, including accessing the Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) process to obtain a suspension on the operation of particular domain names, but, this is limited."
So your elderly or tech-illiterate mum/dad or grandmother/father will fall for more miscreant’s traps. That’s not the making of a safe/useful internet. I'd expect to see ICANN being sued for not offering protections and enabling fraud.
Wrong icon, you need this one
... The absolutley shitty way skilled IT workers have come to be treated in the last 2 decades, the advice I give my children about entering IT fields is: "Don't""
And my advice; get skilled up, start at the bottom and earn respect from your peers. Be ahead of the game and steal someone else’s lunch. Don't just put up with being treated poorly, you are worth more. Take your skill sets to an employer with the best conditions, money will follow.
"Our factory might be a comfy place, with coffee, office chairs and computers but it's still a factory and we're still wage slaves."
We are all wage slaves, £10,000 cleaner and the £100,000 CEO. Who works for nothing? (There are caveats, which I've no doubt will be highlighted, e.g. charitable work)
Well said, have an up vote!
"(every time the suggestion comes up that it is included the IOD and the CBI start whining that they won't be able to bring in top class surgeons or world class ballerinas)."
Shame on Brit parents for allowing/raising their kids to not strive for more.
Why do the Brits always fail? Never win at footy, prestige jobs go to foreigners, The doctor is 90% of the time not British.
Re: Getting into Contracting
Contracting is good for certain types of people.
No kids, no mortgage, no commitments, enjoy travelling, don't want 9-5/certainty/sick pay, yadda yadda yadda.
Employment for those who do have kids.........yadda yadda yadda.
It depends on the person. As a young person (with presumably little experience and no ties), a couple of year employment to build skills/experience/confidence is a good start, then take your skills sets and sell them to prospective marks. A few years of contracting and earn the bread. Later on in life, you marry have kids and go down the employment route.
(Of course the majority of youngsters follow their parents by becoming parents of bastard children before they can be deemed an adult themselves)
Re: This isn't just an IT problem
"Then train staff in those technologies and hey presto, in x years time you're where you want to be and have skilled staff that are the envy of other businesses."
I'd rather make you redundant because you have not got the skills needed. The next person at my door with the right skills gets to eat your lunch. Your career and earning potential is in your hands, go do it and stop making excuses that your employer isn't offering training.
Not a popular position, but it's dog eats dog out there and if I can gain better conditions/pay by skilling up and pinching someone elses job, then thats what I'll do.
Re: Full time?
Where do we stop?
Re: Full time?
"I'm full time because I'm not so fussed about the money and prefer the social side but I am considering going back to contracting in part because of the lack of training."
Don't wait for your employer to train you, do it yourself.
"We’ve outsourced too much. Outsourcing became an end in itself.”
Too right. CFO's listen to the sales men telling them they can save £££'s and still keep SLAs in place. It's all bull!
Put in shite and you get shite out.
"Users who create content always have and always will control where that content goes, and there is literally nothing that IT can do to stop them"
No, the "crap" is not to stop you working but to protect the enterprise from fines from regulators because they can not demonstrate that they have made reasonable attempts at protecting data/adhering to the rules.
As a EU, do as you wish, but remember, EU's are not exempt from all those rules and regulations imposed on the organisation. Play dice with your future if you wish.
"He added that it's also "questionable" if BYOD makes people more productive: ".
I said this from day 1, but as usual, the plebs get caught up in the hype. You know the majority of the time it's gonna be iShite products.
"I guess it depends on the nature of [the employee] we are supporting"
The one who shouts the loudest. Kn*b Heads!
Re: Disconnect ....,...
They know which port to disconnect, but the sub-loop can be confusing.
"It would also be very useful to know where I was on the day’s list of visits. A location tracker even."
Gone too far. Sorry, but no! agreed that missing agreed dates is not good enough, but this suggestion is too far, intrusive even. You'd get no cooperation from me!
As per usual, my accounts are working fine!
"But some organisations have decided to trust the user and claim big savings in productivity by deploying BYOD." but of course they lie. BYOD is a sham and those caught up in the whirlwind deserve the large fine they are bound to receive at some point.
Re: Beyond a joke now
"Well, the Koreans will eventually copy that too."
Does this slur indicate that you believe that 'sung copied Apple, or do you believe that Apple are actually god and invented everything? Just need to gauge your understanding before I make a decision as to whether your a complete idiot or a troll.
"Apple will also start using wireless charging this year"
Welcome to the party, where have you been since the only flagship product released last decade?
Re: Wait for the case of mistaken identity.
"You are a cyclist. You pay no road tax. You have no right to be on the road anyway.
Do you even have insurance? Done any training? Got any kind of license?
But it's OK; the suffering motorist will pay for your personal lanes and other privileges. And for the accidents you cause. And your medical costs.
Yeah, you just worry about your trinkets."
I'd like to see this shit stand up in a court of law. Not so smart then!
Re: Easy PR
"A bar that nobody has ever heard of bans a technology which is essentially still vapourware and suddenly they're getting worldwide press coverage." and the unwashed start raging like children. Threats of violence, really? Have these filth left school yet?
"!and when people are filming in public without asking the people first use of these glasses can expect do get beaten up and the glasses destroyed.... peple have a right in public space not to be filmed.... expect some serious glass-rage soon - ironically probably posted on youtube foor world and his dog to see."
So when I'm out as a tourist and I take a photo in a public place, you all expect me to ask your permission first? WOW, the fking stupidity is off the scale!
If I decide to take a photo in public, I expect to do so without the local filth attacking me.
"The academics were keen to stress that the study wasn't funded by the MPAA, and that the anonymous studios providing the sales data had no editorial control – but it's worth noting that IDEA itself was created last year with funds provided by the MPAA"
Says it all. The whole world is bloody coprrupted by money.
Kiddies play in the walled garden.
Adults play outside and as such need to be adults and responsible for their safety.
