Seems to me...
...BMWs are now so boring and ubiquitous nobody takes a second glance even when one is ablaze.
Congratulations on your new euro box toaster.

Re: Its construction will be revolutionary...
...because competitors use lime and clay to hold theirs together? Noted.
If die-hard droid heads are struggling to reconcile this consider one thing you can get your head round:
Samsung are nowhere near the top of the Android tree, they are junk in comparison to many yet this guy is gushing over them. Something smells fishy, and I'm not talking the contents of Eric's apple crumble.
So retailers are selling the console for the glory and taking no cut at all are they?
Why even bother with these stories when the are clearly fabricated by arsehats trying to justify their utterly pointless bullshit analyst jobs?
A GCSE first year business studies student would be able to pull this utter crap to pieces with no knowledge of tech manufacturing.
When I took issue with the trolling newsies on here I got censored.
How does that work?
"Your correspondent visited the London iPad Air launch and was unimpressed: Yes, it's an iPad, which weighs a bit less than the old one and is quicker."
This respondent doesn't give a fuck for the opinion of this so called correspondent but is amused that he wasted his time going to the launch of something he clearly was going to hate - just so he could hate it.
By the way, the tablet in the Daily Fail photo isn't an iPad Air. This is the second time this afternoon I've picked up on a 'The Recycler' supposed journo who's simply cut and pasted from some other incompetent fucking idiot journo elsewhere.
What are the qualifications to do this job exactly?
Re: Oh noes...
Well if it makes you feel any better Pulp Fiction was technically a Disney film (they bought Miramax the year before the film was released).
"The news agency also notes the movie will be shot in Blighty, as were the previous six, for studio purposes at least."
Then Reuters is very wrong, as is The Register (The Recycler) which, as usual has failed to double-check it's sources before going into a CTRL+C CTRL+V frenzy.
Star Wars to Jedi - The studio used was Elstree before the more historic part of the lot was turned into a bloody Tescos.
Phantom - The studio used was Leavesden - before Harry Potter took up residency.
Clones and Sith - Studio principles for both films took place at Fox Studios Australia. The pickups were photographed here too.
Re: Couldn't agree more.
Seems if you want to send one of Jasp's turgid tales down the crapper all you have to do is spam it with photos of Max Mosley taking it from Eva Braun.
Re: This is getting a little tired
Yawn, just fucking yawn.
I thought The Register just rebranded news from other websites. After all the entire internet news scene is just a bunch of work experience knuckleheads copying (badly) from each other's news sources.
PS judging by the grim standards of adverts served up on these pages, I doubt it even pays very well.
He's got that wrong.

Re: BetaMax comparison hardly fair...
Do you really want to knacker an expensive games console playing legacy formats when there is a CD/DVD/BD player six inches away from the PS4 in your AV stack?
Who listens to music through their TV anyway. Even MTV gave up on that idea.
Re: Commentards are xBots?
It's almost as if nobody was planning on plugging anything else into their TV and the lack of CD's etc. has dashed their dreams of having a one-size fits all solution therefore the PS4 must be crap.
Hands up who ever used a DVD or BD to play CD's...
I call bullshit. The PS4 could have all of these things and a little articulated arm that tickles your bollocks and NOBODY WOULD HAVE USED IT.
Apart from the little arm that tickles your bollocks but even that would get boring quickly.
Games consoles focused on games, what a novelty. If you want a console with a ton of half-baked ideas that don't work properly I'm sure Samsung will eventually release the Play Galaxy IV shit-flung-at-wall-edition.
If that's what you mean by copying Apple then great, I'm glad somebody is focused on the end-experience.
Until then if you don't like it...well you know.
Re: A bit harsh
64-bit processors are slower than 32-bit because they have to process more bits for a given calculation? Wut? By that statement 16-bit processors must fly!
You do realise that mantissas are processed in parallel and therefore for 'up to' single precision numbers processing would take exactly the same time (given otherwise identical architecture).
For numbers of 32^1 +1 or larger (it's really not that big of a number, people always focus on 2^64 as being humungous but that's a smokescreen, 32-bit processors struggle just as much at 4.2... billion remember that's where the 32-bit TCP/IP address system crapped out).
In any case the architecture is much improved so there are advantages across the board, the only disadvantage is the memory required to store data, pointers etc. if coding isn't tight for SP numbers.
Ignorance is not an excuse to spread crap regarding the advantages of 64-bit architecture just because you are not onboard yet. Embrace the future.
Re: queues for laptops...
Yep exactly - they are tablets not laptops. It took way longer than I was expecting for somebody to actually correct my earlier comment, thanks for paying attention.
So what the hell is this quote from the article supposed to mean?
"The tech seems to be maturing," he added. "I remember old laptops, which used to break every year, so you needed to buy a new one. That's not the case anymore and Apple also face competition from Google or Samsung. Apple are still on top of the game, but you cannot expect them to do something different each time."
I'd missed your Apple bullshit for the last week or so Hamill, I was beginning to get concerned that they would find you face down in a pool of your own bitterness.
Since when were queues for laptops something that was noteworthy? You go for that big promotion, newshound!
Re: Glass-wearers involved in accidents
"In a court of law it is the responsibility to the accuser to prove your guilty, not for you to prove your innocent."
I'm going to laminate that and stick it to my front bumper. Then I can drive around like an arrogant, bullying arsehole and the last thing people will see as they disappear under my wheels is that pearl of wisdom.
"Good luck proving THAT in court now that you are raspberry jam on the pavement".
The level of idiocy in these comments is staggering, I thought I'd tuned into the BMW / Audi owners forum for a moment.

"Get a brain Morans". Google it. On your glasses. While driving.
Re: Midlands town?
Too right, we wouldn't want to drag the pristine Coventry, Solihull, Hinckley, Digbeth, Rugby etc. down with that lot.
People might start to think they're all shitholes.
I have to honest, I couldn't give a crap what the greedy, ignorant, under skilled bumrushing sods think, bring it on!
I don't think the term 'smartphone' has much relevance now they have become so cheap and ubiquitous. Such are the economics of scale I'm surprised anything non-'smart' is made anymore.
No mention of increased production of the 5S then?
Nah, of course not.
Wow, Jasper Hamill...
...born a spiteful prick or just faking it so somebody will employ the miserable little shit?
Re: Does she go?
I thought it sounded extremely flat compared to it's contemporaries, and it's contemporaries don't need to have their exhaust system removed to achieve a round of golf-clapping.
Re: I don't usually descend to obscenity...
Absolute bullshit. Not once have I seen objectionable driving from Jaguar drivers and very rarely from Mercedes drivers either, nor Lexus while we are on the subject.
Perhaps your experience is a Jag being test driven by an Audi driver fed up of having his back wrenched by his Czech shitbox?
Re: look at the web logs
"Device Activations" are the two words you are struggling with.
Re: We'll see the usual pattern ...
Wow that's awesome, don't anybody tell Apple or everybody will want this radical distribution model!
Re: That's 9 million.....
To be fair probably 8.9999 million of them are never going to read your comment and wouldn't care a shit what you think if they did.
Who's the mug? The mug, or the mug who wastes their time mug-watching.
Re: So much for the talk of failure
Only a 25 karat, certified genius would make a comment like that.
Slipped up on the name...
Was 'Landfll' already taken?
Well you are comparing an iPhone model that is a year older so it IS retaining it's value better. You failed to mention that S3 has only 16GB right?
Clearly an otherwise identical iPhone with 64GB of memory is worth more than one with 32GB and there is plenty of evidence to support this so it's hard to take your choice of vendor (or you) seriously.
Kind of irrelevant as a mark of people's ability to choose quality when the best selling Android manufacturer is one of the worst manufacturer of Android handsets.
Re: @ messele - Hmmm
This has nothing to do with where the goods are made evidently. It has everything to do with where goods are designed, the specification of components and whether safety standards are adhered to, if they even exist in the first place.
Cheap junk is cheap junk. Who'd have thought that it costs money to do things properly?
Re: All at once or none at all
MK was indeed built like this - at least for the grid roads and yes there are trees and shrubbery separating the two in many places.
You might be surprised how few incidents there are relative to the population though, my gut feeling is there are no more attacks in the entire city than would be expected if it was built to a traditional layout - maybe even less but I don't know why this is.
Probably a good thing to have the main roads separate to pedestrian areas though since the transit is so congestion free the roads are like drag strips nearly all of the time.
Three incidents in a short space of time, all in the same country. A country with an insatiable appetite for knock-offs and a solid reputation for shaky power distribution.
Nothing reported in the rest of the world where the majority of devices are sold.
I'm calling BS on the entire thing.
No wonder the building looks shit...
...they are not making anything like the profits to build something magnificent. They are a loss-making company in the UK don't you know!
In fact Bletchley is roughly equidistant between Oxford and Cambridge and any talk of travel between the two is irrelevant when you realise both were linked to Bletchley by rail back in the day, which was primarily a railway hub settlement. What we now know as the West Coast Mainline actually terminated at Brunel's Denbigh Hall Bridge (Bletchley) for a good many years.
Its history didn't happen by mistake.
This deliberate skewing of facts in headlines to draw page-click ad revenue is getting really tiresome now. I don't care who the bias is against, I like to visit websites that actually report truths.
Are there ANY tech news sites left now that know the difference between news and editorial guff? Certainly can't include this shit-fest in that very short list.
Re: That could have been me....
The phone in this story was (by the looks) an S3, clearly loaded to the gunnels with dodgy Android malware.
Neither the BBC nor this article mentions that however since of course the first rule of Android Malware club is we don't talk about Android Malware club.
Re: On the other hand.
Exchange rate fluctuations, cost pressures driving down prices...
I can think of a dozen things that could impact a suppliers turnover while at the same time output has increased.
Still, those things are boring when page-clicks and ad revenue are king eh?
Re: Consumers have a reasonable expectation of privacy
Let's have a look at some of your FACTS shall we?
Errm, then they should have switched on their Wifi security then...
Yes they should, but hey, not everybody is as uber intelligent as you, clearly. Shock, horror, some people enjoy using the internet and are not technical geniuses. Scratch that, you're a fucking moron for not realising that yourself.
1) It was a unintentional error that ONLY affected unprotected hotspots.
No, it was INTENTIONALLY designed into those cars' software. Whether you believe the company knew or not is another argument but it was put there by an employee of the company, therefore the company is responsible and liable for the actions of that employee.
2) the data was never used, and discarded.
You know this do you? (Tip: you don't) Google were already busted once after they said the data had been deleted yet they'd kept a backup which was uncovered when the right questions were asked.
Like all these gimmicks it wont work properly and will be switched off.
Samsung love to chuck everything out there to see what will stick. Fine if you are a geek who is content with doing their testing for them but I'm staying well clear.
So let's see if I understand this...
Shamsung rip off somebody else's BIOS. Make a dog's dinner of the programming leaving massive flaws then blame this on innocent users and innocent Linux developers.
Just checking some things never change.
