Amazon workers in Germany stage CHRISTMAS STRIKE

CmdrX3

Re: logistics?

I would humbly agree. If I go into a shop and ask the lady for a packet of cigarettes, the fact that she has to walk over to the cigarette counter, lift the packet of cigarettes from the shelf and return them to the counter does not suddenly put her into the logistics industry.

Goes like the blazes: Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 late 2014 edition

CmdrX3

Nice piece of kit

But I'm still not willing to pay that much for something so locked down and can't access Google Play when I can buy something like a Nexus 9 for a tenner less and do so much more with it..

El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.

CmdrX3

I'm no design expert but...

To be honest, I'm not loving it. Maybe it's just because it's different and I'll get used to it, but I just seem to be scrolling forever to get through all the articles. I know you've tried to declutter things, but for me the FP looks even more cluttered than it did before, but like I said I'm no design expert. Pictures though is good, I like pictures.

Apple lawyers fight to silence dead Steve Jobs: 'No right' to hear him from beyond the grave

CmdrX3

Re: Not strange to me...

You mean like Mike Walters who saw an American Airlines jet coming in very low and he watched it fly into the Pentagon, no might, no maybe. I realise that's not the WTC, but as you twoofers think the Pentagon was also part of the conspiracy it doesn't matter. It's time you let it go.... Charlie Veitch did and he was one of your main go to gurus. Regardless, I think you clicked the wrong link, you should have hit the one that says infowars, they'll love to hear what you have to say because twoofers are only interested in hearing from other twoofers who share their idiotic opinions.

One-click, net-modelled UK copyright hub comes a step closer

CmdrX3

Well from what I can gather it's more of a database of who owns what as well as making it easier to obtain permission from aforesaid who to use the aforesaid what along with what usage rights you would be entitled to, etc. Basically a Google for the copyright information on images, video, or other copyrighted material that's littered around the internet..... however I could be completely wrong.

It's fine in principle

If I could use it with the same frequency I can use the contactless payment on my bank card I would but unfortunately that was not to be. we should have knew if Apple put in an NFC chip they would fuck us over in some way regarding it's use the same way they did for Bluetooth.

BlackBerry will pay you $$$s to be its friend and dump that iPhone

CmdrX3

No sweat guys

I'll tell you what Blackberry... How about a nice hot cup of go fuck yourselves. I'm certainly going to jump at the chance of swapping my $850 phone with you for $400 and the chance to own a useless brick. I can certainly see how the offer might appeal to.... no one anywhere.... ever.

Northern Ireland website leaves front door open, spills users' data

Re: Mission accomplished!!

"The short-cut.. drink more Guiness. The more I drink, the better my Irish gets"

Then you're not drinking enough Guinness. The idea is to drink enough of it so you can't even understand the language you're speaking yourself. Then have two more.

Could YOU identify these 10 cool vintage mobile phones?

CmdrX3

You can f****** keep them

I'm between smart phones at the minute (sold my old one and waiting delivery of the new one) so I bought a cheap Samsung E1200 to cover the gap. I can't tell you how shit it is to go back to a 1 inch screen, no internet, 4 apps, 1 game, a crap signal, and that crappy old predictive text. Mind you, I bought it on Monday, fully charged it and it still has all it's power bars... maybe because it takes that fucking long to do anything on it I stopped bothering. My text replies now usually consist of "Yes", "No" or "Phone me"

EU battles over 'anti-terrorist' passenger records slurper law

CmdrX3

Another unnecessary data grab

If it's not "think of the children" it's "think of the national security" and in both cases little will be prevented by the data mining. British citizens, who may have an email address, phone number, credit card and whatever else, but having all those things isn't going to stop them travelling to Turkey where they will cross over into Syria. In fact many seem quite happy to tweet about who and where they are and what they are doing once they get there.

PEAK APPLE: iOS 8 is least popular Cupertino mobile OS in all of HUMAN HISTORY

Just don't blame Bono! Apple iTunes music sales PLUMMET

CmdrX3

Re: saturation...

I don't think there is a complete lack of decent music, but there is less and less of it being released by recording studios who like to rely on the the same old formulaic dreary drudge. For me iTunes is the equivalent of looking through an elevator music catalogue. I prefer Bandcamp myself because while there is certainly a fair bit of dross, there are also quite a few gems and while it's mostly unknown or lesser known artists, much of it is worth more of my listening time than the factory processed dullness that's coming out of the likes of Sony and Universal.

Doctor Who's Flatline: Cool monsters, yes, but utterly limp subplots

CmdrX3

Flatline... is that the name of the episode or a description of the series

I love the new Doctor, but the writers are giving him nothing. They seem to be more concerned with fitting Clara into some bizarre plotline. The series isn't so much Doctor Who any more as it is "The Adventures of Clara the Impossible Girl and her Time Travelling Companion". Capaldi desperately needs a Donna, some decent writers and preferably the resignation of Stephen Moffat as well. Maybe then Capaldi and the show might stand a chance of recovery.

Don't wait for that big iPad, order a NEXUS 9 instead, industry little bird says

CmdrX3

It will never work

Competing with Apple on publicity or trying to steal their launch thunder never works very well, in fact it usually only hurts more because most media eyes aren't waiting for the next big thing from Google or Samsung, so they may release it and they may get a mention, even a fairly big mention, but as soon as Apple do their launch the Google and Samsung stuff is quickly forgotten, even their tablets are usually called iPads by the less technically minded. I often get asked by my wife if she can borrow my iPad, no matter how many times I tell her it's not an iPad.

Microsoft WINDOWS 10: Seven ATE Nine. Or Eight did really

Maybe they'll even fix the USB sleep problem which randomly causes joysticks and controllers to get switched off, and if they just chop of that whole bit of the start menu to the to right of the search bar, that would be good too.

Scrapping the Human Rights Act: What about privacy and freedom of expression?

CmdrX3

They really don't like it

The problem with the ECHR is that it is like a battering ram on the establishment. It makes them do things they really don't want to do but should and stops them doing the things they want to but shouldn't. It's by no means perfect, but given the choice of that or the muppets of Westminster stamping on our rights and privacy, I certainly know which one I'd choose.

EU operators PLEAD for MERCY, may get roaming rates cut ‘reprieve’

Re: Oh crap, here we go.

10 minutes.... It's mobile operators we're talking about here, don't you think 10 minutes is a little over optimistic for their bottom end of fair use. I would have guessed they preferred anywhere between 1 minute and 10 minutes.

Apple Watch will CONQUER smartwatch world – analysts

I'll just move along

I've never worn a watch, I dislike them and the Samsung Gear, Moto 360 nor the Apple Chunky Watch is certainly not going to make me change my mind. I just don't see the point in it, many probably will (even those who didn't before Apple released one).

BBC Trust candidate defends licence fee, says evaders are CRIMINALS

Re: BBC produces quality TV that the market can't...

Discovery hasn't discovered anything in quite some time other than Jim Bob Jr from Alibami And Tim Tom McGoober from Georgi have TVs and want to know what life is like in Alaski. History has found out that the only history we need to know about is buried somewhere in a storage locker and that the Ice Age involves trucks driving up and down on it. As for National Geographic... I honestly just have not the words. Oh yeah and the BBC can shove their licence fee up their Khyber pass.

Jony Ive: Apple iWatch will SCREW UP Switzerland's economy

CmdrX3

Oh good...the iWatch. I can't wait.

Much in the same way as I can't wait to get piles as I further approach older age. No doubt I'll be able to chart my approaching health decline and general unfitness with some spangly new iWatch app and track the passing days towards my ultimate demise as it digitally ticks away...... colour me excited.

.... or am I just being a little too Victor Meldrew.

Pay the man his f**king money. They've obviously had promotional benefit out of it but trying to use pathetic technicalities to avoid paying the man is reprehensible.

Google's ANDROID CRUSHING smartphone rivals underfoot

CmdrX3

Re: And yet...

It's not so much getting treated as second class citizens because you are on Android, it's because there is so much different hardware running so many different versions of Android that it can become a support and bug fix nightmare for developers. They don't have the same kind of problems with IOS and Apple hardware. Piracy is also a far bigger issue on Android that it is on IOS and when you put the two together a lot of developers are simply going to come to the conclusion that it's just not worth the hassle.
