Apple hit by INSIDER LEAK: New iPad Mini 3, iPad Air 2 blabbed

J. R. Hartley

Pffffffft

Getting pretty bored of hearing about the new iPad or new iPhone. It's just the same old shit. Burst mode? My old W995 was doing that back in 2009. What absolute fucking bollocks.

Video: Dyson unveils ROBOTIC TANK that hoovers while you're out

J. R. Hartley

Can it deal with cat poo?

I read recently a story a about a robotic hoover spreading cat poo in a lovely spiral over every inch of the living room, and never working properly again. I can't get that image out of my head. I guess you could call it a cat-ass-trophey.

Re: Why is Win 8 and Win 8.1 seperated?

Cheer up, Nokia fans. It can start making mobes again in 18 months

J. R. Hartley

Hmmm...

Is it allowed to start selling phones in 18 months, or start developing phones in 18 months?

Either way I wish them all the best, but all the goodwill has gone, and they would need to make the mother of all phones to entice me back.

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.
