New Year's resolution: Don't use Instagram, it'll sell YOUR photos

Wang N Staines

UK

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.

The iPad is still better value for money because more than half of its memory is available.

'I'd buy that for a dollar': Apple on Moto phone patents

Wang N Staines

Re: Apple to court

FRAND is normally used as cross licensing tool, i.e. you pay minimal amount to use my FRANDs and in return all your patents are available to me for more less minimal amount. Both of us win.

Apple being a c*nt that it is, refused to reciprocate.

Googorola yoinks Android mobes off German shelves

Wang N Staines

Re: What I never got

The problem is patent leeches like Apple will not 'FRAND' their patents, they abused others' FRAND patents. Simply because their patents are not standard patents.

Leeches like Apple are expecting to pay $0.0001/device for FRAND and $30/device for theirs.

Hold the chips: Apple axes Samsung RAM order for iPhone 5

Re: Smartphone/touch screen history

@Giles Jones

So before the first introduction of transistor radio, you don't think people were thinking about how to improve the size & quality of radio? So when Texas Instrument made the first transistor radio then Sony should be prevented from making & improving on transistor radio?

All this shows, e.g. w.r.t radio & HCI, is that some company will get to the next stage of evolution first.

But they all 'borrowed' from previous generations of products/technologies.

Nokia had developer guidelines & patterns for their phones before Apple had an iPod let alone an iPhone.

All companies/people play to their strengths.

Re: Pretty sure this entirely misses the point

Nokia has been in the phone business for a very long time, not some Johnny come lately like Apple.

They know how to work those carriers.

Simple fact is no punters want their gears. The carriers know it.
