Adobe kills Creative Suite – all future features online only

Gary 24
Trollface

It would be interesting...

To see how many people learn the CS suite via bootleg's or dodgy old copies that go on to Pay full whack when they use it in their jobs / make some money....

Adobe risk eliminating the casual starter who would have learnt the tools this way and therefore the knowledgebase would disappear making Adobe products either less attractive in business or push the price of hiring Adobe Pro's up in the future.

Seems like a chance for other companies to up their ante.... I wonder if this was a reason Apple has started to once again push Final Cut ?

Re: Linux is a strong solution

Meanwhile once Google have your phone number for 2FA, they can sell it off to advertisers and you receive 'Targetted Ad's' by text message... yay!

Apple releases fix for iPhone 4S iOS 6.1 connectivity cockup

Gary 24
Trollface

The Bitterness is strong....

Anyway, getting past the anti-apple Register brigade and commenters. This update (6.1.1) has fixed the problems I had with network dropouts on Vodafone (Eeven toggling Aeroplane mode on/off didn't work).

Signal is a lot better stabler and connectivity seems faster now.

O2 / EE did come out and say they didn't see any problems, only Vodafone, maybe a Cellular Model driver??

My battery life on my 18 month old 4S lasts me all day, usually around 24 hours, listening to web radio or podcasts and with x3 exchange accounts pushing :)

Apple confirms 128GB iPad. A hundred bucks for an extra 64GB

Gary 24

Re: The biggest problem with the iPad...

So a computer illiterate mother in law uses a Server to manually mount shares and browse for files? I call out lies, plus if you had a half decent server you can run iTunes on it, or if it's a Synology NAS they do streaming.... or, you know, use apps like VLC ...

So much hate for Apple from people who think it's cool... enjoy your Android with its laggy UI and spyware in built.

I miss Maemo a proper Linux Smartphone OS.

Victory on mobile belongs to Google in 2013

Gary 24

Re: Doesn't the winner in business makes the most money?

Not really 'Open' though, is it???

Most Android devices are rom-locked apart from Nexus, even then there are lots of aspects of Android that are closed... if it were truely open then why can't other app makes have access to the data being collected and sent to google??? it's a honey pot... you should be very naive that when Google's Android / Chrome base gets to a certain size they will close it (you can already see evidence of this ... ala Nexus Q).

Apple's brilliant plan to fix iOS Maps: Get YOU to do it

Gary 24
Happy

Why do

All the fandroids keep spouting off their Google Maps? It's Crap! Nokia make THE best maps for a mobile device, and from driving to/from Germany on a fortnightly basis using the iOS 6 beta and maps it's really good and thats a mix of autoroute's / motorways / autobahns and town / village roads.

I don't get what the big reaction is.... no problems here and a very happy iOS 6 maps user :)

Apple: You'd want hi-fi streamage from us, not poor-people Wi-Fi audio

Re: typical apple yet again

What open standards? ALAC is an open standard..... the current 'open' standards for streaming don't work.

Bluetooth is too poor in quality and range, DLNA just don't work very well (i.e. Samsung DLNA doesn't work well with what works for a PS3 Server) and DLNA.

This is them pushing forward to bring sono's style audio/video streaming to the masses...... and let's be honest, you hate Apple so will never buy into it. Hating for hate's sake.... sad sad little person.

Galaxy Tab 7.7 pulled from IFA after new Apple moves

Why don't all the other companies

That do much more than Apple just boycott Apple, e.g. Samsung should just cease all memory, cpu etc sales to Apple NOW!, Sony should remove all music + movies of theirs from iTunes and stop manufacturing their batteries....

Seems simple enough seeing as Apple doesn't actually make anything.

Re: iPod Dock

No it donesn't have a iPod dock.... you need a THX certified receiver / processor / poweramp set to power these. Plus why would you want a iPod dock with these, the sounds too rubbish from a iPod. Stick to Audio CD's :)

Meego goes 3D

Gary 24
FAIL

You are wrong

This is about creating a buzz in the developer world about Meego and getting people to exploit the 3D on the newer generation of Nokia handsets, and with a backer like Intel it can't really go wrong, what if this is folly? so what? it gets a lot of tomorrows developers onto the Meego / Qt (portable to Symbian) bandwagon....

OVI Maps

I know it's 'Cool' to hate Nokia right now with all the Lemmings going for iTarded devices and throwing all their personal data away to google. but...... I have a N900 & a N97

N900's aren't really designed for mass market usage and they haven't upgraded OVI Maps on there for some time so don't even bother.

N97 .. OVI Maps is absolutely brilliant, it gets me from Manchester to Frankfurt without a glitch what-so-ever, the only downside with it is that it can lag sometimes but other than that it's certainly the best Phone based satnav out there in terms of features and quality AND i didn't get a huge bill because my maps are loaded onto a microSD Card :-)
