Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Spawn of Galaxy Alpha and a Note 3 unveiled

Support From Larger MicroSD cards

Almost all Samsung phones/tablets for the past couple of years can take a 128GB Micro SD card.

(I was using one in my 3 year old GT 7.7)

Apple: SO sorry for the iOS 8.0.1 UPDATE BUNGLE HORROR

eSeM

Every year I expect Apple to say a big thank you to the fanboys for beta testing the latest version of iOS ..... but they never do.

Re: "A little eBay shopping and you can find 128GB Micro SD cards for under a tenner"

Genuine Sandisk 128GB Micro SD cards are now selling for around £50 on Amazon. By the end of the year they will be under £40.

Why Apple had to craft a pocket-busting 5.5in Plus-sized iPhone 6 (thank LG, Samsung etc)

eSeM

Re: But when will Apple Pay be coming to Blighty?

Errr .... you don't need a Oyster Card App, I can already use my phone with NFC enabled S4 to pay for buses in the same way and for the same cost as an Oyster card and within the next few weeks I will be able to use it on the underground.

Dear-ly beloved: Apple’s costly iPad Mini with Retina Display

eSeM

The biggest flaw I can see with the iPad mini is that it is the wrong shape.

The beauty of a small tablet is that it can fit in a suit or jacket pocket ..... the iPad fails in this respect.

Also makes it poor for watching movies.

All cool kids' phones run ALTERNATIVE alternative custom Android ROM

eSeM

Nothing to do with the competence of the programmers, it is the bastardisation of the OS in an attempt to increase profits of the manufactures that is the problem that gets fixed with a custom rom.

I don't want no Samsung ( or HTC or Sony etc ...... ) shit on my phones.

'200 million' fanbois using iOS 7 just a week after release - study

I would expect that at least 95% of people owning Android devices couldn't care less about fragmentation .... so long as they can play music & videos, access facebook, send SMS messages ..... and make telephone calls they will be happy with what they have.

iPad 5, Retina iPad mini with 'A7X' chip home for the holidays – report

eSeM

Doesn't Add Up

If Apple were to release an iPad Mini 2 before Christmas in very limited numbers they would have to reduce the price of the iPad Mini.

Cutting the margins on one of their products just before Christmas ..... unlikely.

(Though I do hope so as my daughter wants one)

Mobes' pay-by-bonk just isn't cool enough, sniffs Tesco bod

eSeM

NFC Payments ..... if only

I have had phones that support NFC for the past 2 years but I have not yet found a way to use them to make NFC payments.

There are so few phones and apps that will currently support NFC and and this will probably continue until the big corporations stop squabbling about who is going to make the money from them.

I already use my Visa card to bonk at Tesco and McDs but will use NFC from my phone as soon as I can get it set up.

Re: Otherwise the specs for the 9.7-inch tablet and its Retina screen remain the same

Yep, any 64GB Samsung Tablet that has a card slot can take the 64GB micro SD card.

Apple supremo Tim Cook's pay packet SLASHED 99% in 2012

Re: Shark. Jumped.

That is a pretty fair comment to anyone that isn't an IFanboi and is in typical Reg style.

Apple's iPad Mini mishap: scratching out the retina screen

eSeM

Re: I agree, the lack of a retina screen is crazy...

To have put a retina display on the iPad Mini they would have to have made it at least half an inch thick to house the battery .... and it would have got very hot.

Battery technology will need to improve before they can up the resolution on this device.
