None of those things? That's odd, because with freemium apps on iOS, IAPs require passwords, just as apps do by default. You can't turn that off. You can, however, turn off in app purchases entirely in the settings.
Apple do use 'free' in the store listings, but only where the price normally goes. Seems reasonable and consistent, no? Just like just having 'install' where the price normally goes on the Play store.
Apple identify right under the name, at the top of the listing 'Offers in-app purchases' when the application does. They always have.
And there I was, thinking that 'missle' was a horrible misspelling that arose thanks to the infosuperhighwaybahn. I was wrong.
Re: Not in the mood to swap phones anymore
Agreed. A dropped call would get in the way of MotoGoog doing this: http://www.beneaththewaves.net/Projects/Motorola_Is_Listening.html
Typical - I have a whine about a spelling mistake and leave out a word. Should have included 'amiss'.
It doesn't ask for an email address. Is that their 'fix'?
Also, a spelling checker wouldn't go on the front page: "Thas's"?
Re: Bussiness.. No I'd rather.
Added bonus, no people from those better parts of the country coming down south demanding free dry cleaning services to deal with the nasty grease stains clothes from the huge chips on their shoulders.
There you go, about as funny and clever as your post, i.e., not at all.
A Nissan Juke, even the 'fancy' limited edition, counts as a flash car?
And yes, it is for charity. If I had the money and the will to spend it like this (which I don't, on both counts) I'd rather sit with someone like Tim Cook, Larry Page, Bill Gates or even Larry Ellison than some gormless footballer.
Also, don't drink coffee. Do you reckon I'd get a discount if I asked for a nice cup of cocoa, with extra marshmallows?
Re: re: evidence that someone didn't read the article
Yup, I scanned the article and missed that bit. Apologies.
When I was at Merrill Lynch in the 90s we were assured by the Bloomberg reps that messaging using the terminals was 100% secure, and we used it for all sorts (work mainly, but also partly, in my case, furthering my 'friendship' with a special friend who was also on the network) knowing that. Nice to know that wasn't the case. Lovely.
like a mule
Ezel? That'll make it popular in the (admittedly small) dutch speaking markets - Ezel = Donkey in Dutch.
Also, trackpad in annoying place. Not only do you have to reach over to touch the screen, but you've also got to reach over to reach the trackpad.
Question that may very well be a silly one, but if the caldera is filled with molten rock to the point where it is overflowing, why is the ice/snow/glacier, especially that covering the caldera and surrounding the place where it is spilling out, still there?
Re: @The lone lurker
Cut on the very same day that England draws New Zealand in the third test? Coincidence? I don't think so, and if you do you're clearly a Mossad/CIA/US Coastguard running dog capitalist lackey.
This is very true. It's painful. We keep being told we should 'support small businesses', but when the local small business is significantly more expensive that the alternative it is hard.
A small markup I can take for convenience, but 15-20%+, which is what sometimes happens, even between B&M stores. Well, I'm not a charity, and more to the point, neither are they.
I live about five minutes away from the shop in question, and have two friends with coeliac disease (as in actually have it, rather than being fashionable/conned into thinking they have gluten intolerance as so many people seem to). They have refused to shop there in the past due to, and i paraphrase 'customer service issues'.
I rather suspect their opinion will not be swayed by this latest development.
That cheat code is permanently etched on my brain. It's the only one I've remembered from that era.
Of course, when the Telefonica/O2 guy said '“moving backward, duopolies are no good for anyone", he really meant to say "moving backward, duopolies are no good for us. Telcos don't want to be the dumb pipes they really are (and the only thing they're any good at), and want a monopoly instead. Also, java applets that look like zx81 games are really cool, and stuff'.
Ah, that explains why they began paying dividends in 2012 - twice, in fact. Next round is due on the 11th.
You know, unlike Google.
Well, if they sat it on the surface there might be a decent bit of shockwave transmission. And glass. Pretty, pretty, glow in the dark glass.
Re: Australians get gouged by everyone!
I am concerned that your post does not direct a sufficient amount of vitriol, hyperbole and, indeed, any kind of histrionics towards Apple, instead picking on poor Adobe, who are a force for good and awesomeness and, err, open and stuff.
Please correct this oversight to better fit in with the other posters on el Reg. Thank you, and have a nice day
Going back to the matter at hand - if you really want comedy overcharging gold in Australia, check out car pricing over here. And how even 'standard' euro brands like Opel, VW, Peugeot and Citroen are positioned as premium brands, and charge accordingly. It's really quite irritating.
Re: I waited almost 9 months
Unless you buy your nexus from one of the many operators that install their own firmware on the things, or Samsung's superspecial Yakjuxw, rather than Google's own Yakju, in which you might still be waiting.
Of course, you could root the thing yourself, unlock the bootloader and change it to Yakju, but that rather defeats the point for 'normal', i.e., the majority of phone purchasers, no?
And idiot? That special condescension app that comes with Android phones seems to be getting a real workout today, eh?
I am dissapointed that there have been no Withnail and I references made to date.
Nonsense. This, from an arch fandroid hangout, tells the true story.
But believing it would get in the way of a good old, and ever so dull, opportunity to bash Apple, of course.
Why not? The 4S, like it or not, does a great job with photographs and video. Both tests and real world experience shows this to be true. Is it just because the article doesn't pander to your particular set of biases?
You are a brilliant person
It must be fabulous to be as clever as you are, and no superiority complex to speak of either. Hoot at parties as well, yes?
scratches neckbeard and waves hands
but, but, it's Ooooooopen!
Would be great if that still were the case, but it isn't - google changed it to 15 minutes back in December 2010. Clock starts sticking as soon as you choose to download it. Barely long enough to download and evaluate it properly, and when I say 'barely' I really mean 'nowhere near'.
Recipe for disaster
I bet that even if Nokia were to switch to something as succesful as Android they'd manage to screw it up, much like the peeps at Sony Ericsson, who have completely failed to get the whole 'support the user, ideally with upgrades and nice customer support' ever since launching the P series of Symbian phones, and are continuing that fine tradition with the X10. Why would Nokia be any different?
Better they stick with a new OS like WP7 that is being sold to neophytes who see the name 'Microsoft' and think that all good flows out of Redmond. And, of course, the MS vassals who have a vested interest in the Microsoft dominance being extended beyond just the desktop.
