Re: Yahoo! makes Brit teen app maker VERY RICH
And Yahoo shareholders much poorer. Although in fairness they did invest in Yahoo, so they should of seen that coming.
Look at Amazon's fubar with its own cloud service. If that happened to Google or MS Office cloud services what would you do than?
let me help you
I'm assuming you've never seen an iPad before (or iPhone), so when you go into a store and turn on a demo iPad the native email client is the icon of the envelope on the bottom left. They really do hide it I know!
When you as a consumer have a choice of Android, iOS or QNX it seems logical to want to buy the device with a decent selection of apps already, rather than waiting 3 months and hoping they come out.
Your making the implicit assumption that it can only be an iOS vs Android game, that likely won't be the case long term.
If your a developer wanting to make money now, I would bet on an iOS app vs an Android one.
reminds me of the Yes Minister quote:
"Any statement in a politician's memoirs can represent one of six different levels of reality:
a. What happened.
b. What he believed happened.
c. What he would have liked to have happened.
d. What he wants to believe happened.
e. What he wants other people to believe happened.
f. What he wants other people to believe he believed happened."
Am I the only one who literally laughed out loud after reading the articles title? You don't have to be a fanboi to have some doubts about WP7, especially after the update fiasco.
Isn't this why UDP has typically been the favorite protocol of DDoS'ers? Don't think they make tarpits for UDP ;) Of course UDP can be filtered out a bit easier, but if you have multiple GB/s of bw available it probably wouldn't matter.
Please, no more playbook hype until they actually ship the device.
Takes care of all of them.....
I would never have an interest in a subsidized tablet. I like the fact when I want data, its very simple to turn it on. When I don't want it, its very easy to turn off.
How many other tablets allow you to manage your data account right on the tablet like an iPad? When I go into the US I have an AT&T sim I can easily activate a data plan, and terminate it when I leave. Locking a tablet to one carrier would make it useless IMO, so comparing to subsidized pricing is a load of..
How times change....
Before the iPad was released you would of read here they'll never sell any, now that Android tablets are coming out its suddenly a good idea ;)
Oh well, at least we can go back to the endless chatter of Apple users being sheeple.
I'm afraid it sounds like Nexus in the US/Canada makes a hell of a lot more sense. First its opt-in, your not forced to provide biometrics, and second its based on an IRIS scan which I've never had a problem with.
They told everyone about it way to soon, whats the point of hyping a device for months on end when you cant actually purchase it? And when they don't even have a firm release date that I know of.
They'll end up being 3rd to market as a slew of Android tablets (in addition to the ones already out) will be available soon.
I believe there is a law against that many buzzwords in a single article.
A companies value is unknown until it is actually put on the market, period. Facebook just recently became profitable IIRC.
And all valuations are based on the assumption it never becomes less profitable or less popular, which seems perfectly reasonable.
VOIP Over 3G..
Perhaps for paranoid people, there is another good reason to use it.
Depends on the carrier..
With Fido/Rogers in Canada there isn't an extra fee for tethering, its 100% free with a data plan of 1GB or greater I believe. No extra junk to install either.
Why would Apple care one way or the other? They give carriers the ability to enable/disable it, its the carriers choice to charge. Wasn't there an extra fee for making a Wifi hotspot with some of the newer Android phones on some carriers?
Apple has ered with the iPhone 4 antenna, but at the same time I would hardly be scared of Android right now. The UI is downright clunky, copy and pasting is a terrible chore and there is mostly garbage for apps. Googles new tech will surely change that though.
Droidtards are almost as bad as open source fanbois somedays.
