All nice and well..
but great phones though.
I'm sure there's professional help for this obsession with Apple.
Or maybe actually getting invited to an Apple event will cure it?
The current family of smart (phones) devices was built on wave of technological and design improvements, backed up by new services (cloud, etc.). We have reached the peak of that wave now and, after some more digestion, we will start to look at our smart devices as being mostly dumb. A new wave will come, built on connecting services and devices, not on better technology or more specs. The new smart will be in how they all interact. Technically, maybe only battery design will see innovation during that period. Eventually, this wave of new ideas will drive the next wave of technological advance. In my opinion, that's the wave Google is preparing us for, little step by little step.
How is the iPhone any different from any other top-end mobile phone? They all pretty much cost the same if bought outright and the contracts are just as expensive if bought on a contract.
I guess you would go for a Google thing then.
You do know what Google's business is based on, do you?
Scientists do know what they're talking about, but climate change will be used as an excuse for a series of new taxes which will not have any effect at all on climate change. At present, humanity is unable to act at all. It will have to go through real disaster first before anything meaningful will be done,
North East my arse..
I'm in the South East and I've been affected at exactly the same periods each time.
Lying bunch of no good incompetent w*****s
News they call it
A new OSX video has been on YouTube for 4 days now.
A blast fro mthe past
You should check out the absolutely horrible site examples they list for their web platform,
It's like 1990 all over again.
Just listening to it is proof enough.
It's a shit piece of music, devoid of any harmonic structure.
And I'm Bach fan nr. one.
No, it was MacGyver who did that, using only a penknife and a bag of flour.
The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, against popular believe, was not written by J.S.Bach.
This has been proved pretty much conclusively by many prominent Bach scholars.
Re: The obvious solution
You can also buy 5 of those for the price of one Galaxy S4 or a Nokia Lumia 920.
What's your point exactly?
Ever heard of saving bookmarks to the home screen?
Why would anyone have to type a long URL every time to access a website?
You're really clutching at any straw now to talk crap about Apple users.
Having a slow day in the old creative writing department, have we?
Since when it THC an hallucinogen?
I wonder if..
..there will be enough idiots left in the world to keep reading the results of crap research like that.
A page dedicated to ugly phones..
Well done Samsung.
It did that consistently in the default gallery app.
I had an HTC One for one day (I sent it back). It took 10 seconds to crop a picture for a wallpaper.
Fast doesn't mean good user experience.
Let me get this straight..
Let me get this straight.. I have the beta installed and it looks nothing like the OSFKA Metro. But I should also add that it's very underwhelming. The icons look a bit shite and there's nothing much excited about it at all.
My main reaction is very much 'meh'.
I'm sure he meant that, instead of learning how to twitter, expose your personal details on Facebook or search for porn, programming would be a better skill to learn.
Since upgrading to 6.1.2 my battery indicator doesn't want to go past 86%
I can already hear the advice from Apple support.. "clear all your settings and spend a day setting everything back up"
I'm getting pretty fed up with the shit now.
Android is starting to look very nice.
Back to reality
I tried their Sencha Touch 'Kitchen Sink' demo and I found it extremely slow and unresponsive.
They should have but some of their programming wizardry in their own demos.
Info not quite right
I updated my iPhone 4S yesterday evening and the download was 47MB. There's something not quite right with the info in this article.
Basic, but it works..
But apart from offline reading, I can't see much point in using this over m.theregister.com
What is Hadoop then.
I still don't know.
That's a first..
The jailbreak doesn't work for me. A 4S, 5.1.1. It hangs in the end for a long time then says something went wrong and restores.
Personally, I don't like 40 seconds of crap music at the start of a pod cast.
iOS5 (on a 4S) is the first time I've ever been unhappy with my iPhone. Apps most definitely crash way too often. I don't know if it's the OS or badly programmed iOS5 updates, either way, it shouldn't happen on an iPhone.
And to add to that, the 5.0.1 update has left me with a ridiculously fast draining battery (I managed to fix the battery problems in 5 but no such fixes work in 5.0.1) and constant SIM Failure messages.
No good Apple.
This is worse
I had fixed my phone myself already using various techniques (setting reset, trickle charging, etc.)
I know installed this update and my phone is discharging a lot faster than before.
What a mess.
It's hidden because..
..it's a bit shit. It's not intuitive and it crashes.
My Nexus S was complete shit. A plastic case that scratched when you looked at it and a battery that drained faster than any phone I've ever owned, even after weeks of hacking and installing ROMs and it was god damn slow compared to my iPhone on top of that. So for the redesigned plastic with 4 year old GPU and a slower CPU we now have to pay £25 more than an iPhone. An iPhone which isn't made of crappy plastic. Absolutely bonkers.
If you have ever experienced the Nexus S you will take 'walled gardens' any time.
Let's at least hope that Icecream Wanky is not as shite as Gingerbread is.
The reality is..
The reality is that people, most of the time, don't give a crap what their friends are up to, let alone the 2000+ 'friends' some amass in their profile. Facebook will also soon find out that most people are stupid and that, no matter how nice and shiny that toy was, they will want a new toy at some point. They will play with the other toys available until there are none left but the stinky crappy built ones like Diaspora.
I, for one, have just deleted my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter accounts and I'm already feeling better.
So the writer of this article thinks he knows better than billions worth of top brains.
I think I'm going to place my bet on Google.
Journalism..who needs trusted sources anyway?
My mate heard a guy in the pub say that his friend worked for a film editor once and his boss had said that he will stop using FCP because it's not pro enough. I think that's enough material right there to write an article about it.
They've been able to track people's whereabouts from the first day a mobile connected to a mobile mast. You really don't need databases on iphones all of a sudden to do that. You must be living in lala land to think no one can track you.
And for the Android people who think they can claim the moral high ground..
What? No Apple/Jobs angle?
Surely you could have fitted one in?..
Jobs declares Apple to be best free kick taker.
Jobs bends better than Carlos.
The best free kick was by Luc Nilis, playing for Anderlecht against Mechelen, as can be seen 11 seconds into this video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8084934473300432540#
That's got more curve than Roberto's :p
I like Apple products, I use a Macbook, I've got an iPhone (I've queued for neither of them) but I too am getting pretty sick and tired of all the Apple articles. I can't really blame Apple for it though. If Jobs announces the next iPhone will be one millimeter shorter, every single effin 'tech' website jumps on it for a week, comparing the previous phone with the one millimeter shorter one, assessing the consequences for people with shorter or bigger hands, analysing the history of measurements and units, blah blah effin blah..
I guess if these websites and newspapers have nothing better to write that's about as good a journalistic output you can expect from them. It's they who create the hype, not Apple.
"What is it about Apple products that makes otherwise rational human beings behave like complete maniacs?"
I don't think that the person described in that blog is a rational one in any circumstance.. more like a yuppie wanker in every circumstance.
..where anti-Apple fanboys roam freely!
The anti-Apple fanboys at The Register must be having a party right now.
Keep your eye on the job people!
There's more flimsy tech news and anti-Apple stories to report on!
Is this the local Apple bashing forum?
I've noticed the anti-Apple fanbois are out in considerable numbers.
I updated to iOS4 myself yesterday. The update went smoothly, although 35 minutes for an update is a bit slow in my opinion. Having said that, I'm not very patient. I haven't noticed any problems with the OS myself. WiFi works just fine, 3G is the same,everything runs smoothly and responsive.
I am under the impression that the battery drains a bit faster, even when no apps are running in the background.
I'm no fanboy, but we're not just talking functionality here. I still have to see the first Android phone that doesn't completely suck in the battery department. What's the point of having the latest amazing features and some more if you can't even look at the phone or it drains. And don't get me started on the monstrosity that is the 'Android app market'. I've got 6 months left on my phone contract. Android and the handset makers will have to do a lot better to move me away from the iPhone.
I think it's quite interesting..
..interesting to see a giant slowly killing itself.
I may get some popcorn at some point.
Why not stick all his crap behind a closed firewall instead?
