So a bunch of marketing people, let's call them Tw4ts are going to pay a bunch of Twitters knows as Tw4ters to spam a bunch of people on twitter, let's call them the Tw4atted with adverts.
I think that about sums it up ;-)
What a Bright Idea
That is all!
This is a major story.....Oz has floated off in the ocean and is now 70km off course....PANIC!!!!
Pay Twice Great!
So I paid over the top for my last monitor and due to this fine I will pay over the top for my next one.
Thanks, bloody thanks a lot......
Lets face it
Some one is certainly taking the mick.....two weeks!!!
If I had lead times like that to do a bit of work, I would be a happy man as by now on a Friday I would be emptying this
Money off to iOS6
Useless!!! Unless you already know where the Harvester you are going to eat is!
Of course you will find it if the local Apple store are having a meal out there with the blue shirt guys.
Apple have already won
By keeping the Galaxy Tab off out of the shops for months, Apple have done what they wanted. People will have already purchased their iPad and that will do most people for a couple of years after which many of the people with stick with what they know and buy Apple again. Plus of course they will be trapped in the walled garden and climbing over the wall could be painful and expensive!
If a UK firm had done this and sold some to the US.....you could bet your life the MD would be on a plane to get some American justice ..... 25 years for each violation....that's 30,000 years you have to serve....and $1Bn will do as a fine.
Or Oh you are a US company....naughty, naught....please do not do it again!
We are all equal...just some are more equal than others.
Ok I have said it....the Apple clock has rounded corners, so it must be theirs and they will sue because the Swiss have copied them by "Extending" the rounded corners in to a circle!
Re: Just amazing
1. At most there was only one mob per family.
2. Only one landline per family....most people still have this
3. Show me where I can pay £1000 for a PC today that will not be out of date in 2 years.
Now everyone in the house has a mobile on £30 or so a month....now when I was a kid at school I had a part time job....the money from which I could spend as I pleased.....most school kids now do not have jobs but do have the latest mobile........
Life outside the Apple eco-system.....our you mad?
The world is flat you do know that right?
If the sale of these was announced on 12 Sept......I would sign up to buy one and even queue!
The only use
I do see one use for this type of payment. You can load up your kids mobile with say £30 and you can check how the money is spent.....i.e. not at local fag shop etc.....
But other than that it seems like a solution looking for a problem to solve. Just get the card out of your pocket and bonk that.
Paris because as we all know likes a good bonking system!
Maple syrup thieves.....
They will be the ones with the wigs on.
Market opening for a real search engine!!!
For a search engine that just searches "sites" and not Faceslap or Google minus
IFA 2012 YES! I AM TAKING A PICTURE!
Why is this article not about Yahoo???
Come to think of it can the SIII be used as a discus?
Apple / Samsug
Give each of them the others phone.....who throws it furthest wins the court case!!!!
Lets start with with the phase "Tablet and Slate"
Wonder if it will bring up Stonehenge or at the very least an episode from Star Trek.
Mines the one with the rounded pockets.
The more choice the "better" seems to be the moto!!!
Just stick to BCC1, 2, 3, 4, News, a bit of C4 and ITV4 for the cycling!
If you need more TV than that, you can go on the local "Baby Bro" reality programme coming to a place near you.
Come on....you know that is going to a court near you soon!!!!!!
If M$ did not have the money to fend off a Metro case, these lot certainly will not.
Coverage good....web catch up service could do better
The coverage was fab providing you watched it LIVE. The problem with the catchup service on the website was as you clicked through it told you the results of the sport on the same page as it had the link to watch the catchup. So a couple of times I went to watch something as if it was live (work does get in the way sometimes) and was greeted with the result before I could get to the catchup. May be one page with all the catchup stuff on (not show results) would be nice.
ITV do the same thing a lot of the time on their catchup service.....went to watch the tour highlights and the picture on the link showed the days winner crossing the line....it takes a lot of enjoyment out of then watching an hour long programme!
Come on it is not rocket science!
what about Orange assistant......that was around way before any of these. I cannot remember the date it started, but it was taken out of action sometime in 2004.
It allowed you to use your voice to call people, do simple searches of address book, cannot remember what else it did......but remember thinking wow this is really good!
What has happened to the Wales measurement?
Surely the story should be saying how many Wales £21tn of £5 notes would cover!
What has happen to the youth of today.....no respect for tradition!
Yes you knew where you were going!
It is not the GPS data that is the problem here.....it is the fact they used the phone network to transmit the data.
GPS on a bike is fab......100 miles of open road that you have never cycled before....and away you go without getting lost or having to stop at each corner and consult the map.
And I saw it all
Well I was at Richmond Park to see both races out and back :-)
It was very funny.....loads of people trying to stream the race on their iPads (I am sure that uses way more data than twitter!!!
Anyway I had purchased a little portable TV......guess who had a load of people looking over my shoulder!
Lets face it we all know that when you get that many people in one space you need to revert to tech other than you mobile......if we get loose anyone meet at x point......and in my case good old TV works way better than streaming at events like this!
Re: On the unwisdom of interpreting others' predictions too loosely.
We all know in IT that things do not happen every week, batch jobs, changes in monthly procedures, quarterly end routines, the list goes on and on.....it can take a while for things to fall apart.
For infoR I was not referring to his article ...... I was referring to real life ;-)
Now about sacking all the IT staff......want to reconsider?
Did you really write "coming to Toshiba tellies soon" in your article.....but I do think that does say it all
<<<< Have to use this icon...less smutty than Paris
Wow...where can I not sign up please!
Well by all these comments it looks like everyone will be falling over each other to sign up!
Well everyone I know has got the III not one person has gone for the 4s since the Samsung release.....that includes Apple fans, Android nuts (Sorry I do not know anyone that has a Windows phone any more). Plus those that "want" a new phone are all looking at the III ..... iPhone 5...mmm....lets face it many people have had the apple iPhone fix and fancy a change.....some of course will stay with Apple....the churn is churning away from Apple a little.
I miss my Windows smart phone from years ago.....way ahead of its time....you could have apps on it years before Apple invented them.
World Cup 2010??
When will this stop being a media story.....really Le Reg get with the times with the breaking news on IT
Re: Why is the windows user icon a tramp?
<<<<< There you go as it's Friday :-)
Butter....give me butter
The one thing I want is the Butter project stuff in JB......makes all the screen transitions nice and smooth...mmm....like butter melting in my very hands!
I have a Xoom UK, but now it thinks it is a US one.....so nice update on its way in a couple of weeks :-)
Because it is simple to do!
Just go for applying the US firmware......works a treat.
Only thing to be aware of is that you have to remember to turn on the USB debugging if your device fails to connect to your PC. Check that at every stage and your sorted.
I am happy on 4.0.4 now....and waiting for those smooth graphics in 4.1
What a load of tosh these numbers are.......
x carriages have wifi....most carriages do not pay for wifi.
That is certainly rubbish in the UK.....ok you get a train with 8 carriages 4 first class with 10 passengers in each and 4 standard class with 20 people standing in each carriage unable to even use their laptop and on top of that ALL of them have to pay.
Could we have the numbers broken down to the number of passengers that that can get it for free v the number that have to pay.....that will make the figures a lot more realistic, but the train companies will not release such figures a I dare say.
Another load of spin, that us train passengers do not fall for.
Well I have happily used it on my tablet for the last couple of days.....once you have signed up it connects instantly every time, so none of this signing in each time, which would really make it useless.
So if your wifi is on......as your tube enters the station ..... click send/receive on your email and ping it is there.
Well it will be ok for the the week or so.....then everyone on the tube will be doing it and at that point all you will see is people face pulling in the hope they are the one that gets their email.
Re: What is Chrome for?
Mouse support came in on 3.1 of Android.
Stop iPad sales then Apple!
So if Apple remove apps because of copyright , IP type issues......surely it follows that if the iPad is up on the same charges that they should withdraw that from sale.
No thought not.....the world does not work like that when it is Apple.
Give me strength
Ahhgggg.....and I am still waiting for my £249 Xoom to get the OTA update to ICS.
(Yes I know I can go to xda and do it myself, but why should I ...... ok that's my go at the google hardware mob moto out the way)
Back on topic. This tab does look a nice bit of kit for the dosh
