Well the storyline did disappear up its own arse
Probably because Apple are upping their prices
If any commentard has not seen this (and Yes Prime Minister) I strongly suggest you do. If you are looking to buy it, it may be 'mis-filed' in the documentary section.
.... Real Networks to see if they still existed. I thought they shut down years ago
by texting her dead husband's phone offering a £2.50 broadband upgrade. Disgraceful.
Someone else who has not read the article:
"I've been up to the shop with the death certificate, with a letter from the crematorium, the funeral bills – even his ashes. I took everything I could."
I read this as she tried to cancel the contract in the first instance by showing the death certificate.
"Android is getting like Symbian. It keeps getting new releases and features, but ultimately it always has the same crap UI with a bit more polish on it. It doesn't even look better than the original iPhone OS yet."
And your suggestion(s) for a better, more polished UI are ....... ?
Game performance simply blazes
Thin and light body matched with Nexus line's clean, unobtrusive design
We want to see tap-to-turn-on functions on every tablet from now on
Solid battery life
Android has matured enough that apps generally hold up well on the bigger screen
Stuttering and pauses between app switches are too common
Slightly loose plastic backing gives the device a cheap feeling
White bleed from the top of the screen is unfortunate
Auto-EQ on speakers goes so far as to ruin certain music and loud scenes
8MP camera suffers from second-plus delays to shoot photos
Just change the name to iCahns.
Would you rather have your MBP littered with crappy stickers telling you what processor it has got and its speed, what graphics it has etc? I wouldn't
But how many years now is it since the register have started on about "Peak Apple"?
Depends who wrote the article
sold $10 million in stock since Feb 14; and 9000 shares ($160,000) two days before the Apple 6/6+ announcement. Coincidence?
Apple may get the company on the cheap, but Apple pumped a load of cash into GT which allowed them to expand their operations. You can't compare what happened to Phones4U with this.
Don't Samsung always quote numbers shipped, whereas Apple quote numbers sold? There will be one hell of a difference.
.... were given a choice to update. Unlike the Android faithful who may get an update when the manufacturer and/or carrier feels like it.
"In portrait mode only?" - another fact you need to check on. It does landscape as well.
Not sure why you have been down voted here. Very sensible comment. Have an up vote
Why include "iThing builder" in the headline? Foxconn builds for lots of companies not just Apple. It seems to me that no matter how tenuous the connection the Reg wants to get "iThing" or "Apple" in the headline.
Good opportunity to crowbar "Peak Apple" in there as well.
"So someone who knows nothing about something says something on issue. Great."
The so-called analyst or Jasper ?
"Sterile crap" - well said Sir.
+1. They are about as useful as a chocolate chisel. Or OFGEM.
... is that the headline has the word "Apple" in it, and the story is actually about Apple.
2.15% at the moment
Very happy to be corrected on this but isn't it the WAY data is transferred that is the difference? I tried using a USB3 drive with Final Cut Pro and FCP was not happy.
However, an external Firewire 800 drive + FCP and all's well. On paper, FW800 is a hell of a lot slower than USB3. They are different technologies designed for different uses.
"You utter cock"
You're not James May, are you ?
"stop heading down the plughole to click-baitism"
Too late for Mr iHamill.
What a non-story. And in other news, Tim Cook has a piss at least once a day.
When it's released will Apple HQ be renamed "Fruity Firm"?
Who pissed on your fireworks ?
And it seems they're ripping off MS for the UI too. Make of that what you will.
"She said that "improvements come with a price tag," and that BT was concerned that Ofcom's "few pennies per month" remark was woefully inadequate"
They do come with a price tag don't they? So how can BT afford to spunk nearly 900 million quid up the wall to pay for Champions League footy?
"The world (+ dog) was stunned today to learn that many Americans have no taste."
I know!! Some still buy Samsung.
.... That's after their 14 day trial expired
.. one word in his tweet as "predatory"
also - hippo's yawn or clowns pocket
@AC 19:57 - Are you new here?
I think regular readers on here are getting royally pissed off with red-top type headlines and reporting.
just an old O/S
Peak Apple: check
Fruity Firm: check
Written by: enough said.
I do like iAcolytes though
' ...... as they usually lack some combination of features I want."
I think you could say that about ANY phone on the market at the moment. Personally, I would like (slightly) bigger screen, but an SD slot is not a requirement for me.
Now if a manufacturer allowed you to order a bespoke phone where you can specify screen size, battery size, SD slot, OS (?) etc, they may be onto a winner.
Beer: because it's Friday
...... trying to amaze people with rather pointless stats
Isn't this the domain of Samsung?
Pish. It most certainly _is_ possible to "make Ann Widdecombe look attractive". And it doesn't even take much Photoshoping. Just park her next to Steve Balmer.
My eyes ... my eyes
... on holiday very recently. I just thought this was par for the course as far as American ads were concerned.
and no mention of Foxconn rebrander.
"allowing fanbois to spend their cash on whatever iTat they fancy"
iTat - an anagram of the author
Jasper had written this.
Did Obama say that iOS 7 was CRAPPY? No. Did he say the deployment was CRAPPY? No. He said glitches.
Never let facts get in the way of a CRAPPY headline eh?
Shouldn't that be
Mines the one in my carry on Louis Vuitton bag in the overhead......
(One of the UK daytime TV bailiffy type series once showed some chaps turning up at Fujitsu with a warrant to seize kit to the value of a non-trivial debt the courts had found proven. Unfortunately I didn't see how it ended.)
The sheriffs were pissed about by the company for ages. Eventually Fujitsu found the dept responsible and paid up in full. They blamed the debt on an "administrative error" if I remember correctly.
Article in the Grauniad that I found interesting
Was it such a slow news day that you had to make this crap up?
"If they merged they would become Fruit & Nut."
Nah .... Whole Nut
Ashton Kutcher playing Ashton Kutcher touting Lenovo should be no problem.
Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs touting Lenovo. Lawyers at the ready.
