Come with me if you want a lid: Apple bags Terminator-esque LiquidMetal mobe patent

ThatGuy

Finally!

Something actually worth patenting! This should eliminate all those ugly gaps between the screen glass and metal body of the electronics device.

iPAD AIR WORLD DEBUT: Our Australian team gets an early fondle

ThatGuy

Re: Another way to look at it...

Please don't blow a fuse. The only real reason to get the iPad Air over the iPad 1 or 2 is the weight. Let me qualify: the retina display is nice, but cosmetic; the new processor may be awesome, but iOS is already so slick that I doubt you would notice a HUGE difference in your day-to-day activities like browsing the web and what not; whole new OS, whose main claim to fame is.. pastel colours and removal of 3D effects on icons.

Another way to look at it...

The iPad has stagnated and differences between generations is cosmetic or negligible. On the other hand Android tabs take huge leaps from one generation to the next which justifies the upgrade. Lets face, it early Adroid tabs were terrible, with nowhere near the spit and polish of the iPads, so huge leaps where inevitable.

Lumia 2520: Our Vulture gets his claws on Nokia's first Windows RT slab

MS are making the same mistake Nokia made

Having too many Operating Systems. Everyone else uses the same OS for phones and tablets. Nokia has been more successful with WinPho than MS has been with WinRT. This tells me they should just kill RT.

Re: Scratch resistance?

Forget NASA, what about the NSA?

Does this mean we can do what we want on the internet and not be worried about the NSA finding out about it? At least for a day?

Windows Phone market share hits double digits in UK and France

ThatGuy

I belong to none of the groups you mentioned, and my mobe is a Sony Xperia Z (which I really like), but I would like to see WinPho become more popular. Why? 1: more competition is always better; 2: the WinPho interface is the most interesting thing to happen to UI since the mouse was invented and deserves a chance to prosper. Icons on a desktop/home screen (with our without parallax) is so 1980s. I would also like to see BB make a comeback.

Apple asked me for my BANK statements, says outraged reader

ThatGuy
FAIL

It could be Apple clamping down on fraudulent app store activity

I live in South Africa, and we have our own app store. Quite frankly it is absolute crap. Not even angry birds is available. So a lot of iOS devices are registered with fraudulent US/UK addresses in order to gain access to those respective app stores. Maybe Apple is trying to stop this sort of activity.

WTF?

but but but... PRIOR ART

As has been mentioned, I have seen all these features before, on Nokia devices of old.

Please someone explain to me (seriously, I would really like to know) how Apple is able to apply for this injunction with this in mind?
