says it all
"The British government already has the e-petition signature threshold set at 100,000 and is considering raising it further to cut down on the number of responses it needs to make."
We the people will be ignored. We the government will use this platform to make you plebs believe we care about your thoughts, but really we the government dont give a shit and you'll do as we say!
There. That's more like it!
Re: Terminological inexactitude
"in 10 years iphones will look as dated as the TV show Big Brother does now"
They look dated NOW. Have you seen the state of iOS?
London Met say 1/2 of stolen phones are "i". What can you say, it's London! Full of the pretentious wannabes, walking about with an iPhone and no LIFE!
In fact, I'd speculate that the figure should be higher considering how the fannybois think its the best thing EVER.
Re: Safer to carry an iPhone ?
"Yeah, but you can beat a mugger to death with a Nokia"
If they are an iPhone owner, they could just BORE you to death with the same old wives tales they heard last decade and still cling too.
Cut the bullsh*te
"It's tricky to know what the demographics of iPhone and Android are, Rich young people buy iPhones but lots of normal young people buy cheaper Android handsets. As a % of the youth I can't imagine the iPhone being the most popular just through it's cost and they don't sell enough to cover the majority of the demographic."
Same tragic old story repeated and bleated by the sam old folk.
iPhones are NOT expensive! They do NOT imbue the owner with a greater status or image or wealth.
If anything they imbue PIKEY through and through.
So, ladies, stop the iPhone is expensive crap, eh?
"People stealing the phones go for Apple since it is easily recognisable"
Re: No, put it away
"Yes, so the iShiny is the desirable phone to have last decade......
OR making the victim realise that they played a part too!
"Reassuringly expensive iPhones" are not so expensive at all, in fact you can get them free!
By because "people" place value on status, the fools will never learn.
What's the point anyway, surely the theives realise that the phone can be tracked?
Typical double standards! Can't the 'glish get anything right?
I hate being surrounded by these retards.
"With Apple, "i"device is the reward. You essentially become addicted to "i"device"
Re: A question or two
"Why do Android users need to know about permissions and what App store is safe? Surly they deserve a device that is simple to use, secure, safe and malware free."
Yeah, if you need your nappy changed by apple!
"a worrying lack of user awareness around the dangers of downloading apps from unofficial third party stores."
If you install from untrusted sources, then you deserve to be ripped! People really are dumb asses.
Nothing to do with android as a platform, but with witless users.
Tory scum are useless!
VoIP is rubbish.
Buggy, insecure rubbish.
academia + retarded.
"Even the fanboi's aren't that gullible."
Stop! I nearly choked on my tea.
WOW, there are still millions of half wits buying the junk.
Seems only the fannybois want i5.
Free him. He did right. He didn't help the enemy, he helped the public to see how evil the military are.
Now the truth about his treament would back the assertions that the military are evil.
Re: And really, who needs it
"no I don't want to open iphoto every time I plug it in."
Don't use Crapple, Done!
Re: @ AJ Stiles, & Mongo
"anarchistic world of the many Android apps stores and manufacturers."
too much choice confuses the feable minded.
" a user who has seen emulated Android apps is a user who might buy an Android phone."
So I'll run out a buy another phone, even tho the one I has works fine with the emulator running for apps which need it.
Does not make any sense.
If these apps are being ported "easily achieved by reverse-engineering the Java code", then the devs are to blame themselves. They couldn't be arsed on to do it, so some one else has.
"open-source web framework that is optimized for programmer happiness " and a complete lack of quality in the code being produced.
'grammers need sent back to school.
Sure sign of mental illness.....
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads," the King James Bible reads. "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
Nice story, now where is the truth?
Re: People have opinions, it's not a crime.
"Racist remarks are not opinion, they're an offence. You shouldn't be allowed to get away with it online any more than your should in public."
But we all have EVERY RIGHT to voice our own thoughts and opinions, no matter how vile we may think they are. I would defend that right, even if I was being defamed. Can't have it both ways.
best way is to use your own equipment to screen the calls. works a treat, not infalable, but cuts nearly all unwanted calls.
Re: Whats good for the goose..
"Yes but the US is a law unto itself and backed by a huge military."
Stop cold calling us or its war!
"BeCouply for instant date suggestions to throw at the chick while in your hot convertible"
Any old bollox to sell
"To Ramstein, though, even mere vibration is a vast improvement over, say, the Microsoft Surface keyboard, which just lies there pretty but inert. "Lovely, but I don't feel anything," he said of Redmond's inability to thrill his fingertips."
WOW I can smell that from here.
"The fact is most people who do NOT buy an iPhone do it due to cost."
Tell us oh wise one, where do you get your "facts" from?
I'd get a refund if I were you. You should have realised that "fact" was bullshit from the smell.
If iPhones are so expensive and classy, why have all the Jeremy Kyle auditionees have one?
Because they are not the elitist symbol iowners make them out to be. Hardly surprising tho, after all it’s not difficult to pull the wool over their eyes, Apple has been butt f*king them for years.
I laughed so hard
"Apple has made a name for itself by marketing high-end gadgets to affluent, design-conscious consumers"
....but were purchased by every pikey chav boi in the UK. (and there's millions of them)
"The only way to stop this is to close the loopholes."
A tory government closing tax loop holes? Don't make me laugh.
The old bummers club aint gonna close no tax holes.
Re: Uh no.
"I can't fault Starbucks, Google, Apple, et al. for doing the same."
You must like being butt f*cked by these big companies do you?
'Cause they are screwing us all over by not doing what they have a legal obligation to do.
Have you no morals man? What next? Kids?
S C U M M Y
40 billion crap apps!
How many talking cats do we need?
WOW she's a bit of a slag, ain't she?
Fuckwits, fighting over a bitch? Sounds like a case of undescended testes to me.
Never knew that reg 'tards were part of the MI5|FBI|CIA etc....
They seem to know everything!?!
Re: Using Android reminds me why I stick with the iPhone...
You didn't read all the words in his post did you?
He's writing documentaion for phones that are NOT YET RELEASED.
Isn't it obvious why he's not naming it?"
You didn't expect an iPhone user to examine all the facts before jumping to conclusions did you?
"the register is full of fandroids who just think it's cool that google have ALL their data and no privacy :)"
Far more aware of privacy issues than the standard iPhone user in their walled garden, keeping them safe from the baddies!
Re: Using Android reminds me why I stick with the iPhone...
"So you're judging Android on a device that you interestingly fail to name?
There is a clue where the problem might lie though, you're comparing a mid-range nameless phone with a very expensive phone.
How is anyone supposed to take you seriously?"
WTF? iPhone was expensive when released LAST DECADE!!
They are as common as their owners (Pikeys, chavs, Jeremy Kyle auditionees)
Are you on drugs?
"Except, of course, that Android isn't as good as iOS when it comes to polish. "
WTF? Your either off your face, or blind, deaf and dumb! (Mind you, you did select iPhone, so the second option is more like reality)
Re: Cloud Services
"new device in my hand was indistinguishable from the one I was using the day before."
One for all. Hardly innovative.
" I like the simplicity and convenience of owning Apple devices"
I'm not simple!
".....Google ....keeps releasing the Android operating system that is popular but not nearly as good as Apple's iOS, and its phones/tablets that are not as good as Apple's hardware."
Matt, sorry but your wrong.
iOS is rubbish and how can you say "style over substance"?
What style? 00's chic? YEAH, RIGHT!
How can anyone take what you have to say next seriously ?
