That $351m ad spend produced several billions in revenue, whereas the $363m spend by Samsung produced what? revenue decline? Way to go Samsung.

I have a relative (distant) who worked at a big datacenter just outside Cairo and stayed on all through the uprisings. Maybe I should get him to contribute. I don't think it will be quite as graphic or dangerous for that matter. Their employer took pretty good care of their safety, they spent most of the day and nights at the centre which had armed guards.

maybe he did that on purpose to test our spelling and to see if we are all awake
OMFG...ASTROGASMS....life may really exist out there in the vast and infinite depths of space or in other words 'get a life dear scientists'
really so f***ing what!
Re: don't understand the problem...
Don't get me wrong here, I am not looking for an argument. But Apple's implementation seems OK to me, sans a proper filing system.
Under the photos app there are 'collections' and within that are 'moments'. I have a 'moment' that includes all todays photos and email saved pics. If I am in the camera app, I tap 'collections' that takes me to the collections page.
I'm not sure how it could have been done much different really, although I am sure there are other ways. But it feels pretty intuitive.
don't understand the problem...
"Another of my relatives (older generation) was recently bought an iPad to keep her in touch on e-mail. It's confusing the heck out of her because of the way that it automatically files stuff, in particular different locations for the pictures that she takes with the iPad and pictures that are sent by e-mail and detached."
I just saved a pic from an email and it appeared in my photo gallery alongside all the other photos. That seems quite logical to me.
come on GCHQ, which is it...
just the other day Ms May announced GCHQ would be helping in the fight against pedophiles, now they are saying they have lost all contact with crimes of all colour.
So which is it?
my tenure at ITV
was constantly interrupted by falling asleep
where are all those other hard hitting docs..
you know the ones on the pedophile ring at a well known broadcaster, Rotherham, super long hours at the NHS...always so easy to point that finger and conveniently ignore the four pointing back in the other direction.
Re: And now they're doing something similar with photos
could you be more specific, links would be great.
oooops! no plaintiff = no case
According to latest court filings, the two plaintiffs in this court case, both purchased their iPods outside the specified period. Plaintiff lawyers have yet to respond.
where is the cliff?
shock absorbers for landing
Can someone suggest why a sort of shock absorbing system could not have been used to take the energy out of the actual landing. I was thinking some sort of gas releasing valve to absorb the impact energy.
which is roughly 20,000 kilometres in size....
what exactly does this mean?
Sounds like a lot of km for something 3.5x4km
This really is where we are going, I have no doubts about it....and just where does 'a little surveillance' start and stop? This is the trojan horse to allow governments to introduce laws that 'censor' the internet, this is the next step and all in the name of enhance security....
I work in PAL conversions
I have a measly MacMini to do most of my simple re-edits. It has a nice Fusion drive, that is pretty speedy. I also have several TB of storage attached to both USB and Thunderbolt. All the project files stay on the internal drive. I find most of the time it works nicely. If I had to upgrade, it would be to all Thunderbolt storage, then maybe a refurbed Mac Pro.
You do know that sapphire glass for the iPhone 6 was just a RUMOUR. So half this article is based on RUMOUR and because of that I suspect the rest is sitting on quicksand.
best news yet
Apple just nicely handed me a nice bonus on my fully upgraded MM when I come to sell it and buy the MacPro.
Oh, in case you ask why sell the MM for an MP? Basically, I need lots of cores and fast ones for Compressor and I still use FCP7 which like cores to render out.
What company gets deluged with 10's of millions of orders and pre-orders. I'm sure as Apple is Apple, they did their best to predict demand, but to complain of supply chain management when you have a potential order book of 10's of millions in just a few weeks and a current waiting time of 3/4 weeks just sounds like sour grapes.
blame it on Wall Street Journal
the whole iPhone 6 sapphire glass RUMOUR, was started by 'journalists' at the WSJ. Now the 6 doesn't have sapphire glass, these scurrilous 'journos' are backtracking fast. It's amazing that a trader can get jailed for a 10$ insider trade, but 'journos' like this, who can cause massive gyrations in stock prices get away scott free.
I'd savour the pleasure of going round all the hotel employees, phone tethered to laptop, going nananana

never touched terminal until now...
then followed the instructions and patched OSX. Really couldn't be simpler.
These front pocket benders must have had some other hard thing going on down there.
I quite like the autohide thingy, makes more space. But I agree it was a bit annoying at first.
Re: Shut up already
Yeah man, all this negative prose is clearly hurting share prices and sales, not.
Same old, same old faux vitriol from El Reg.
Re: Ignorance seemingly not bliss..
Oris Big Crown, have one, lovely watch....
Same old market share mantra....forgetting that iOS users just spend more time and money on their devices.
There's a lovely lady on our local market, she makes and sells goats cheese. Her cheese is simply divine. It's also £25 per kilo. Doesn't stop people queuing up to buy her cheese and she makes a really decent living out of it.
some cocktail that must have made
Re: ... in contrast to Amazon's approach
except that selling at 0% or a loss at Amazon hurts every other bookstore, physical or online, because they cannot afford to sell at a loss. Note Amazon has made a consistent loss as a company for sometime now and investors are getting itchy feet. A lot of people think Amazon is the best thing since sliced bread, until Amazon starts to flex it's monopolistic muscle and then we all suffer with higher prices.
...and bookshops too.
I'd wager the damage in the USA is probably permanent, not sure about the rest. I think consumers and governments will rue the day they let Amazon develop such a strong monopoly in online sales. Although there are other costs to using eBay, at least I feel I support the smaller business. Maybe I am misguided about eBay.
Is this the Bose
who still haven't upgraded their bedside speakers with dot matrix displays?
not strictly true...
Almost from the get go, Apple sent Samsung requests to desist from their obvious copying, which were rejected by Samsung. So after exhausting the legal letter writing, Apple took them to court.
doesn't she look very similar to Alex Vause from the TV series "orange is the new black"?
"slow pace of releasing new products only when they think they're ready."
If you were a large, multi-national company, producing consumer items would you?? Do you see Mercedes, Audi or BMW bringing out new models with bits a paint missing, odd tyres, ill-fitting interiors....etc etc.
a small tactical nuke buried at suitable depth, create a nice compacted plateau, complete with glassified foundations.
"even when their guilt has been proven unequivocally." show me where exactly this is written, because aside from the somewhat biased trial, there are many outsiders who don't agree with Judge Cote's judgement.
Re: My word, how amazing
"Margolis notes that GT Advanced has installed more than 2,500 furnaces and is expected to work with sapphire boules that weigh between 200 and 235 kg"
Re: Selling apple kit is a loss leader, almost
Since Costco is a US company, what's to stop them importing from the US, where they may be getting a better deal from Apple? Who knows, maybe they have their execs smuggling MacPro's in the suitcases.
I've bought Starbucks beans at Tescos in the past. They were on reduction from a mouth watering 3.99/227g down to 2.50/227g. Still expensive (my wife is Brazilian and we bring over suitcases full of best beans at very cheap prices), but fancied a change of bean.
I'm sure Apple will sue over the name, and before anybody gets their panties all twisted, imagine someone brought out an OS called Mi Windows, Microsoft would be on them like a ton of bricks.
Samsung: serial infringer
If you read up on Samsung, you will discover they have a long history of 'copying' their competitors products, getting sued by competitor, suing back at competitor and then dragging the whole legal stuff out in the courts for as long as possible.
If it hadn't been Apple, it would have been another phone company. Would the vitriol thrown against Apple be quite as strong if it was Nokia suing Samsung for patent infringement?
Why is the I-Pad losing market share where the competition is still so weak?
I think Mr Cook answered this one when he talked about the embedded market. I assume he was talking about Amazon Kindle and others like that. He said that Apple has no desire to enter a market like that. I am thinking that if the analysts segmented the tablet market properly, Apple would have a huge share in the top end segment.
My iPad has all but replaced a MacBook Pro. I use it to participate on conference calls, I use Quip to stay in touch with work colleagues scattered around the world. I use it for emails, browsing, research etc. Of course it gets some Netflix and Candy Crush downtime....
or this version?
"but their sales figures bear no relation to their market cap - in the real world they should fail,"...???
It's not 100% clear in the article which MP they are reviewing, because a Geekbench of ~23,000 is not the base model by any means. Please clarify El Reg.
OK, help wanted here
I have a very nice 5 bay storage box from Lian Li, it has a very basic PCB in the back to control the RAID. There is just enough space to fit a NUC board from Intel. But I'm stuck on how to connect up all five drives or maybe just four + one. I thought the NUC boards would make a good platform for FreeNas installation. The boards have a PCI Express connector, but cannot find any boards that would be similar to a regular PCI-E board with an SAS connector going to four drives.
Any help anyone? Or any other suggestions instead of the Intel boards?
