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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
You can't clone these passports without the help of the UK.
I'm getting a bit fed up with this O2 service. I fail to get access to the 3G network in most places (and I live in London!) and when you do get access their data network fails.
I wonder if I can terminate my contract on the grounds of failure of O2 to fulfill their part of the contract, ie. provide the service as described?
Apple still does it
Whether it's unlocking, iPhones, OS or hardware costs and Macs, Apple still manages to bring out the worst in people, not in the least the complete Eradication of any sense of humour or a proper sense of self-deprecation or sarcasm. For many just possessing an iPhone seems to make even comprehensible reading a step too far.
Maybe they can look up on their Jezus phone what they need to answer next!
I have eaten rat in Belgium many years ago. Tourists came from all over Europe to eat it and the reason why was that it's absolutely delicious.. that and the fact the Belgians know how to make a stew. It tastes like a mix of chicken and rabbit btw.
Thanks for all the crap!
Nice to see them piling on the junk but it would be nice to see the basics working first, like being able to send Japanese text between the old Hotmail and the new Live mail service without it coming out like line noise.
Or is that a paid-for service I've missed?
Was this an analogy?
"..the logo is modern and will be dynamic, evolving in the years between now and 2012.."
Did she mean it will get ten times bigger just like the Olympic budget is doing or will it provide a select group of graphic designers with an oversized pay cheque just like the construction of the Olympic facilities will stuff the pocket of a select few construction firms?
Whatever she meant I'm sure it will somehow benefit numerous locals for years to come and maybe bring us a step closer to world peace and the end of poverty... empty oral waffle tends to do that, or so they say.. I love that Olympic spirit!!!
