AnTuTu rigged the tests, wonder how much $$ were thrown their way?
I have been enjoying my Samsung Chromebook of late ... fast & cheap for general browsing... not made full use of the Linux install yet.
Got an ARM based Samsung Chromebook on sale last month for £129, installed Linux on it. What a brilliant little machine. If Acer/MS want to compete they may have to up the specs or lower the price.
The screen on this Acer not too impressive at all.
She is a woman judge, forgive her for her confusion.
"wary of job-hoppers" ... I change my job every 2 years (max) to keep me from getting bored. I have never had any issues with getting a new job. Put in my notice, then I have 4 weeks to look for the next job. Easy!
Apple's divorce from Samsung is going well I see.
Re: There's nothing wrong with copying
Nuke the effing software patent!!!!!
It's nice to have options, isn't it?
Oh wait a minute, you don't have those options on the iPhones.
Every chav on my council estate got an iPhone.
Intel, the company with dodgy business practices, producing chips that are 2 years behind the curve.
Re: "You can even use more than two apps at once – three, to be precise."
They hard coded 3 into the loop.
Re: What's an iOS style widget?
Did you not know that Apple invented everything?
Elop was a small fish that couldn't make it at MS and it was Nokia's fault for hiring such an idiot to run its operations.
Only nerds would think that phrase originated from geeky movies.
If MS is not allowed to bundle IE with Windows then Intel shouldn't be allowed to bundle their graphics with the CPU.
Re: Better settled in..
Tim knows bugger all about kung fu.
These patents are not Android related. They are for accessories added to Android devices.
You can't win against Apple at the ITC.
Lots of Android tablets were heavily discounted recently. You can pick up a Samsung refurbished tablet from Tesco for £122. See http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/white-7-samsung-galaxy-tab-2-from-tesco-outlet-seller-refurbished-including-delivery-1531040
Microsoft nearly sold a copy of Windows 8 in NK.
Nice price, but they can keep it.
Knock £220 off it and we'll talk.
of things are not going well over the garden wall - the last PR stunt on the day of the launch of the S4 and this desperation of design by Steve crap are a sure sign of shit hitting the proverbial at Apple.
Nobody has ever been taken to court for using vanilla android. Oracle tried with Google and failed.
It'll be still 6-12 months behind other tablets.
Re: At the danger of..
Make sure your biscuits are not too soggy.
Bugger me, Fry's PR machine is at full speed with its down voting.
There are a lot of 1 down votes ... is that you Stephen?
Mr Fung should move to the jungle of Vietnam, the American won't pursue him there.

I would rather gamble my money on diversified shares portfolio than bitcoins.
Re: Appalling waste of resources
Why have 12 cylinders when you can have just 1?
Office 97 & XP
is the way to go.
Scan for screen res in the article ... oh, it is crap. ignore rest of article. move on to comments.
I like Sony
Because they are the only company Apple copied/stole designs from ...
I went into a bike shop the other day, 99% of them look 99% identical.
I'm happy that this had happened to the Oz government. Maybe they will see some sense w.r.t to crap patents and reform the broken system.
Spend half of that money on a Nexus 10 & the other half on i5 Inspiron laptop. Job done.
SO who should I scream at when I bricked my phone trying to upgrade it using a ROM from XDA?
That's right, the bloody manufacturer for building a phone that I couldn't do to it as I wanted without bricking it.
Were there any stickers on those machines with "Designed For Linux" on them?
Yeah, I put diesel in my petrol tank ... guess what?
2 consecutive year losses ... a year after, sold assets and cut jobs - a miracle, it turns a profit with a massive cash injection from its backer. Apple and Samsung need to learn from Nokia.
One evil/vile mother f*cker!!!
This is not a troll. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron, bought it 2 weeks ago ... my broadband is 100M with VM.
Starting any apps taking ages with the circular dots going round and round ... after a minute or so the app starts.
I had installed VS2012 ... starting it takes ages. However, once started then it's as responsive my Win7 laptop (2nd gen i5, 4GB RAM ... Lenovo).
The Windows 8 that came with my laptop(i5 & 8GB RAM) is soooo slow.
A piece of shit that is Windows 8.
Time to cash in those share options before they are worthless.
Re: One does get the feeling that Apple's strategy is beginning to unravel.
Anyone told HTC they just paid for crap patents?
There are privacy laws in the UK that will protect you from this, however because Facebook is a US company it'll be tricky. We'll see when this comes to the UK court, I suspect quite soon.
Re: Pardon me!?
That's not true.
Killing people wherever has always been against national & international laws.
There was/is also the Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners etc...

How old is the author?
Where was he when Sony were churning out thin laptops to the world?
Apple used Samsung components to make iDevices - Apple good.
Apple used bad data in iDevices - Supplier bad.
