Re: Apps apps apps

Maybe the problem is that nobody knows BB10 runs Android apps natively.

EU move to standardise phone chargers is bad news for Apple

J. R. Hartley

Re: Apple's not the bad guy here

The only company that did chargers properly before micro USB was Nokia. In the end, even they messed it up by making the 'mini-Nokia' connector standard.

(The cynic in me reckons the only reason they did that was to try and shift some new chargers.

I mean, the average UK household has 2.675 old Nokia chargers*)

Bollocks stuff.

“Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh.”

You mean:

“Commodore ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1980s with the C64 and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Amiga.”

There, fixed it for you.

The facts are these:

1) Apple screws over their customers.

2) People are starting to wake up to point 1.

3) Apple are not cool anymore - no innovation and petty litigstion hasn't gone unnoticed.

It's game over for Apple..

Using the PSP as a remote for PS3 games..

Re: Don't forget the playing (on a PC) of MIDI files

I love my S3000xl. Needs yet another replacement backlight though :/

Plus MESA on a PowerPC OS9 Mac is an utterly miserable experience all round.

Mall lurk man: Apple smashes Microsoft in Black Friday fondle wars

J. R. Hartley

Re: slightly higher than they think OEMs" Indeed, that is precisely what they have done in fact.

Just so they can get market share. I mean, why would the average punter get a Surface tablet over an iPad if there wasn't a big price difference? I completely despise Apple, but if I absolutely had to have a non-android tablet, I would get the iPad. Because of the apps. Unless Microsoft made me an offer (on a Surface tablet) that I couldn't refuse.

If Microsoft really wanted the Surface to sell, it should have been priced at 200 quid max.
