From mine, you don't know what "puerile" means and your post is just the equivalent of "no YOU are".
Re: Another "spoilt child stampie footie session"
Being good at something doesn't make you a role model.
What is this cuddly namby-pamby world where employers are supposed to care about their employees? (any more than one person should care about another person to start with I mean) I want you motivated and to feel valued if your work is valuable, I don't want to have "company hug time".
Re: I think people who can't distinguish
Regardless if it's easy to tell he doesn't really mean it literally, it's still a stupid thing to say. Call it a ****ing stupid idea and the people who run it total ****wits, if you must be such an attention seeker.
I invariably find his unabashed hyperbole ... refreshingly honest
I don't see it's refreshing, it's exactly how programmers are stereotyped as behaving in movies - arrogant anti-social nerds.
sometimes measures like this are needed to make a point
I'm sure terrorists often use similar arguments... some causes are worth blowing up the odd building for.
Blah blah blah
Nobody who buys into the FSF has an iPhone, those like to buy an iPhone couldn't care less about what the FSF has to say.
This is nothing more than one group trying to get publicity of another's launch.
Re: ah yes
As opposed to other flagship phones, which have added dozens of ground-breaking features? No, I thought not.
Re: This prop used to live ...
So you never read a novel, watch a film, play a computer game? Yet you do spend time posting on internet forums, you sad little troll.
Question to developers
I've been tinkering with iOS development using iOS 6 SDK, XCode 4.x, OSX 10.8 on a fairly old unibody MacBook.
How will developing/releasing apps be affected by iOS7 - will I have to upgrade XCode (which requires the new OS) to be allowed to release apps now or can I still build against the iOS 6 SDK as before? I'm not sure my Mac will even support Mavericks...
Re: Sorry apple, you are just too slow to innovate and lack imagination.
It's the 5S. It's a tweaked/tuned version of the 5. S versions never make massive changes, arguably this one does so more than other S versions have.
What about the Cook Islands?
Their domain is .ck.... Woe betide anyone running "Happy Children Company" and wanting a website.
Although owning the website co.ck would be pretty awesome.
I saw a sign "Dog grooming this way" and was shocked they'd be brazen enough to advertise. Children is bad enough, but dogs?
Re: How do you measure curved TV size?
I can see his'n'hers viewing working - we sometimes fight over what to watch and when watching TV we don't chat - I just can't see it taking off. Wouldn't you need the devices to support it - where are you getting two 3D video outputs from?
As for gaming, do any consoles support this?
Thanks guys. And to the dumbos who down-vote honest questions, get a life.
Re: Who the hell cares?
"You forget! There are millions of mindless zombies out their desperately searching for their indentity by purchasing one!"
Get off the keyboard, and get some fresh air. It will do you good.
How do you measure curved TV size?
Straight line from corner to corner as normal, or drape a bit of string to get the extra distance and make it seem as big as possible?
Two 3D images on one screen is pretty impressive technically, though I guess rather pointless.
Re: It's not like this is a new concept
Indeed. I never heard the iPos classic had problems and that must take far more jiggling since people use it on the move, even running, whereas tablets are generally used while standing still. People surely don't throw their tablets around much, they're too expensive and shiny to risk scratching!
Re: The least of its problems
Could they supply it without one but with the chipset still included so people can solder/clip one on?
Although I feel having a tiny computer which is smaller than all the bits you glue on to make it usable suggests you should perhaps have bought something a bit more complete in the first place!
Re: Simple test
Pro isn't even competing in the same market as a 7" Android tablet. Pro isn't trying to be a mass market iPad killer, it's trying to exploit a market in which there are no competitors at all (other than other windows tablets).
Did the original Surface Pro even make it to the UK yet?
Nobody with a brain buys into over-priced crap.
It's a conundrum how you need to be rather wealthy to buy Apple stuff then, given that outside the world of sport it's rather hard to earn big bucks without a brain.
MSVS 2013 requires Win 8.1? I thought they were allowing us to carry on using Win7 for developing?
Yes, and if it's locked how do you circumvent that?
Re: Cheaper Option?!?!
What about the iPod Shuffle then?
Re: Does this mean
There's not a hope in hell you'd be able to buy a new 4S for £300. They remain in massive demand - hell even a 4 is still pretty pricey unless you buy a used 2nd hand one.
Re: Invitation to an antitrust lawsuit
If they were deemed to be exploiting a monopoly to gain market share elsewhere that would be bad (what happened to MS). But it's hard to find a market Amazon could be claimed to have a monopoly on. At least so far.
Re: Free = very locked down?
You're forgetting that 99% of the population aren't nerds and wouldn't even think of rooting their phone, even if it was easy to do. In fact, a few nerds saying how cool the AmazonPhone is [because they can root it to Android] might even act as advertising to the average Joe... "well my brother's a nerd and he likes it, so it must be good".
Re: Road Safety
I think when you're in the car, all the information the watch shows would be visible on the dashboard.
Re: To be fair
It is a little tag/handcuff-esque, but I like the fact it looks a bit sci-fi.
Re: iPad Mini 2
>>Not sure how a 35% difference can really be considered "reasonably close".
Similar ballpark in my view, especially by Apple standards.
iPad Mini 2
Assuming Apple do reveal this as expected, that will be the chief competition and it will be interesting to see a direct comparison since the prices will be reasonably close. For instance should Apple do a full retina 2048x1536 display in the mini 2, they win back the dpi crown but what about performance benchmarks?
Re: Square miles? Feet
For a start the UK also uses imperial units.
And then of course, exactly how enlightened/civilised is using a measurement system based on how fingers you've got? Seems pretty primitive to me.
Re: Goin' downtown
Or maybe the plates could just get 'stuck'?
Since about as long ago as we measure distance in miles.
It really does look exactly like something on the cover of a 1970s SciFi magazine!
eliminate the need to differentiate between devices
It's proved popular for MS.
Isn't the point that they are pushing Azure prices down and self-host prices up to encourage people to move to PAAS?
Re: This world needs lots of things.
If their friends are also joggers, they'll find it interesting. The rest of us will presumably (hopefully) be able to block those posts specifically.
Or what happens when you want to change your phone
This is v1.0 for early adopters and as such, aimed at people who are happy with limitations to live at the bleeding edge. Wait for v2.0 or iWatch for something slicker.
If it takes off, you can bet Android will get built-in support to fix these issues.
Re: Someone has to say it
It'll be really annoying to have a tablet that I can run all my existing applications on.
Re: I don't trust any of them.
You realise that isn't cloud, and is barely even storage? One of the main benefits of proper cloud storage is the possibility for massive redundancy. I guess your provider would sell you backup services for your server but then that would probably just be using a proper cloud anyway :)
our fascist (or communist depending on your viewpoint) government
Says it all about the typical ranty poster. Doesn't know what these words mean, just that the moment your government takes more control than you like over any aspect of your life, they must be one or the other. Probably better throw in 'evil' at the same time... that bunch of evil fascists.
Niche but cool
I can see some uses for this, in specific situations. I even sure a MS Surface (the table not the tablet) used in a restaurant recently.
In my field - medical visualisation - I could definitely use one of these. Maybe I'll have to try and get a demo unit ;)
iPad Mini 2
I'm actually pretty interested in a better specced mini - for development work I have an iPad 2 and I don't really want to spend full whack on a 3/4. If the mini is basically a 3/4/5 in a smaller case for less money, this is perfect.
I seriously doubt iPad mini 2 will use the iPad5 chip though. Makes more sense to me the mini uses previous generation tech - iPad mini is an iPad 2, iPad mini2 should be an iPad 3 or 4 spec.
You'd prefer they didn't improve the specs?
Is it going to have Netflix?!
How exactly is this giving Apple a kicking? It only paves the way for them to enter a market that actually exists.
Looking forward to the comments on this one...
Should be very balanced and objective.
