Foxconn is said to be.... forcing an additional 100,000 university students into workcamps.
There, fixed it for ya!
Re: The very idea...
Meanwhile Charlie Farr is saying they have to monitor everyone's communications as they can't tell us apart.
Sounds a little racist to me.
PLEASE PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPON!
YOU HAVE TWENTY SECONDS TO COMPLY!!!
Re: Pointless DNS removal
I still own bit-torrent.net if they're interested.
Re: Wants list!
Um... got a carrier update on Sunday.
Can I scrub off 1 & 2 from the list?
My iPhone carrier now says giffgaff and I can access my voicemail from the voicemail button.
Thanks Devs? (are they reading El Reg???)
"For five days, one thousand Apple engineers and five thousand developers will gather together. And life will be different as a result."
Good! I have an iPhone want list. Y'know, the REALLY simple stuff that most Smartphones can do by default without the need for Jailbreaking.
1 - Ability to change the voicemail number.
2 - Carrier customization or at least update to include GiffGaff and other services that operate on the back of another network.
3 - Saving animated GIFs to the photo roll - With the animation intact!!!
4 - Change the default browser from Safari to ANYTHING!
5 - Flash. Get over yourselves and bloody include it.
Now GET BACK TO WORK!!!
The UK government would insist on an 'opt-in default'...and probably not tell us about it.
Re: All in a name
You can bet an obscenely large bonus that they paid through the nose for that pearler of a rebranding. Keep the receipts, lads!!! I think you might be in line to get that repaired. Unless of course you didn't buy the extended warranty.
Re: Not even $20
Acktually iz dolan.
That obviously depends if JJ's overuse of lensflare manages to burn his stalky little retinas out.
Dunno why so many peeps dismiss Disney. They've done a stirling job on the Marvel franchise since they took over and the news that characters from the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels will be tying in with Episode VII just made me nerdgasm as much as Season 6 of Clone Wars.
Yeah, it's for kids and I'm a big old 45 year old one.
Dear Hagens Berman
Please sue Apple for not letting us change the default browser on an iPhone.
I think that ones a bit more open and shut.
Especially with the old Microsoft IE ruling as precedence.
I'll be expecting my 10% for this one in BitCoin to the usual address.
Cake for everyone!!!
The NEW Apple iSomething
Apples latest product: THE iSOMETHING
A flat square (or square-like) device with rounded corners and no definable purpose.
The iSomething may or may not contain something and will almost definitely get you sued if you try to create a similar box with something in it that infringes on our 'intellectual' property.
There are already people queuing up outside Apple stored to get one.
That's all folks...
I work for an incredibly large insurance company... all PC and Laptops run Windows XP (despite a Windows Vista license on every desktop) and they all have IE6 running as the defaulty Browser.
Can't see us being around for much longer.
They should have become bankers instead.
Then they would not only be able to fleece billions, but get a nice hefty bonus for doing it too.
So, a left handed UK passenger visiting France who has GPS switched off to conserve roaming costs is pretty much FUBARED as far as this goes.
All it was missing...
...was a couple of Jedi beating the crap out of each other.
Re: New market.
BRILLIANT!!! You could have rows upon rows of iDevices in the iDead Mausoleum, constantly looping slideshows of their dead owner with a holographic Steve Jobs as your guide.
I am Prince Nabunzi Kamadaria, sovereign of the Made-Up Zafini Province and I need your help to transfer some BitCoins out of my country due to a civil uprising...

Re: Here's an idea
Themes in iOS7??? You crazy man!!!
You can't even change the voicemail number on their overpriced junk, and you want themes???
Send that man into the corner with a jailbreak.
If the NSA want to know my high score on Candy Crush Saga... let them!
I have them beaten and they know it!!!
You seemed to be a little confused here, Matt.
WinPho8 does not switch much the same as the new app switching in iOS7.
The new app switching in iOS7 works in much the same as WinPho8.
There, fixed it for you.
Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention

Re: nah mate
Bizarrely, it's now called CIF not JIF.
A genuine Windows topic and Eadon isn't here to tell us how crap it is.
I'm going for a preemptive FAIL!
Re: Just goes to show
All your BitCoins are belong to us.
Now, off to Silk Road with you for some shenanigans!!!
Re: but which has the bigger installed base
You beat me to it.
I upgrade my system every 2-3 years rather than buy a new PC.
Who seriously buys a new PC every year?

Yeah, he's a real stand up guy.
Microshaft... the plot you have lost.
Winblows 8 - DIRE!
Outlook - A shabby version of gmail.
Skype - Can't stand it!!! WTF was wrong with Messenger???
Office 2013 - One system wonder subscription model with no new features of note.
If self-destruction is Microsofts game-plan. Then, they're doing it right.
Re: Alternating Succuess
I had to re-read, I thought you were describing Star Trek movies.
You are currently downloading 'Game of Thrones - Season 3'
If you provide a valid email address we'll send you a FREE court date.
We'll thcream and thcream and thcream 'till we're thick...
So, Google came up with an excellent search algorithm, developed it, advertised it, gained the trust (to an extent) of it's user base and climbed to the top of it's class while all the other search providers scoffed and sat on their laurels.
Now, when these former giants of the internet search world are pathetic shadows of their former selves, they think it's unfair that Google advertises the products it built on it it's own success.
This is a real 'toys-out-of-pram' moment.
Re: Smash it with a hammer now, it's the only way to be sure.
I missed the the first bit and only read 'it's the only way to be sure.'
Regrettable, I nuked the entire site from orbit.

Trust fund to avoid inheritance tax?
Isn't that standard practice now?
My wife and I are in the process of doing the same, we refuse to let any government profit from our death as they have from our life.
'soon we will be in a police state!!!!'
Regrettably due to the cutback and restructuring of the police force, we would more likely be a Community Support Officer State.
Well, that's enough information from the blog...
I'm for jumping in a car with a couple of mates, nipping down the the GeoLocation and confronting Plumpy with some intimidating behavior and greater numbers, before recovering myself a shiny new MacBook for immediate wiping and resale on eBay.
DRINKS ARE ON ME LADS!!!
Re: Nice, but..
Is it really invasion of privacy though?
It is, after all, his laptop.
Surely he can access his own property as and when he sees fit?
