iPhone 6: Most exquisite MOBILE? No. It is the Most Exquisite THING. EVER

Yves Kurisaki

I'm sure there's professional help for this obsession with Apple.

Or maybe actually getting invited to an Apple event will cure it?

Apple's Watch is basically electric perfume

Yves Kurisaki

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.

Quit drooling, fanbois - haven't you SEEN what the iPhone 6 costs?

Yves Kurisaki

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.

HUGE iPAD? Maybe. HUGE ADVERTS? That's for SURE

Yves Kurisaki

Re: Adverts.....

I guess you would go for a Google thing then.

You do know what Google's business is based on, do you?

Climate: 'An excuse for tax hikes', scientists 'don't know what they're talking about'

Yves Kurisaki

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,

Well..

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.

Get lost, fanbois: Nokia pulls HERE Maps from Apple's App Store

Re: The obvious solution

You can also buy 5 of those for the price of one Galaxy S4 or a Nokia Lumia 920.

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.

Fast?

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.

Magpie Apple plunders the competition for cosmetics, as egos run wild

Yves Kurisaki
Stop

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.

Apple updates iOS, does not fix passcode-bypass hack

Yves Kurisaki
Thumb Down

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.

iOS 5 'crashes more apps' than Android

Yves Kurisaki
Thumb Down

Not happy

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.

Apple posts 'battery fix' iOS update

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.

Samsung Android 4.0 smartphone priced for Blighty

Yves Kurisaki
FAIL

Bonkers

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.

Facebook's complexity will be its doom

Yves Kurisaki
Mushroom

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.

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.

No, iPhone location tracking isn't harmless and here's why

Yves Kurisaki
Troll

Lala land

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..

Diary of a somebody - life in iPhone 4 land

Yves Kurisaki
FAIL

The media..

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.

Rational?

"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.

Apple iOS4 upgrade adds multitasking, folders... and pain

Yves Kurisaki
Grenade

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.

Superslim iPhone 4 enough to fend off Android?

Yves Kurisaki

Battery!

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.
