It seems that you can buy an iPhone, but you can't buy classy.

This isn't a surprise...the iPhone is cheaper in the USA
$658 USA price from amazon.com for an unlocked iPhone 5
$807 UK price from amazon.co.uk for an unlocked iPhone5
Hoojie Paloojie it's a beautiful day
What I find hard to believe is that the USB ports were open. At the insurance firm that I provide IT support for this scam to harvest data wouldn't work. It's more locked down that a prison.
Dammit stupid firewall - stupid corporate firewall
Oh Dabbsy, I can call you Dabbsy can't I? Actually I don't care.
You are putting your head into the apple tree again aren't you. But lets remember, it's not just Apple that sucks at pictures, it's android too.
Just, it doesn't seem to be win-okia, they take lovely pictures. OK OK I'm trolling - I guess a phone with a camera is still a phone, and a camera with a phone is a camera. If you want to take pictures, then maybe get a camera.
Incidentally I like your photo's, but only because they are slightly worse that mine.
The 5c is still a great phone
It's just fugly and too expensive.
But if I had the cash I would buy a green one.
OK - here is my tuppence worth
I am beginning to like apple products....I know, I'm a total fandroid so this comes as a shock.
However, I don't want to spend that much money. Even the 4s has held onto a commanding price. With Android you still get the full user experience on a cheap phone.
If Apple didn't hold it's price so well then it's a no brainer. I'd have one in a heartbeat. What's that I hear you say? Get a second user unit. Or you're a clever bod, get a broken one and mend it.
Even second hand units go for more than they should, as do broken ones thanks to the way insurance fraud works.
Is it wrong
That watching the live feed I have the Milky War theme of red car and the blue car had a race driving through my head?
The sites are not blocked behind this corporate firewall.
Hmm, can I legitimise the websites with the client.
We haven't had a playmobil reconstruction for a while.....
Reconstruction or it didn't happen!
chavs, rappers and hoes
I can't help but agree with Dabbs
Now this may get downvotes, and I don't give one single fudge.
The iPhone used to be about style, design. It had a sexy chic all of its own. It helped reinvent the mobile phone. And whilst I am not a fanboi I do appreciate what they did. But enough of the same old shit painted different colours. I now buy phones that are not readily available in the UK, phones that look good and are quirky, phones that scream nerd. And apple simply do not scream nerd, they scream herd.
Whilst the ARM chips are great, I do wonder when the cheaper MediaTek chips that are prevalent in the Taiwan markets will rise.
Yeah, it's not great, but....
Are you looking for a phone that is Orange?
Do you want it to be sub £100
Would you like front and back camera, and an app store?
Then you need the Lenovo A660, sure it's Android ICS, and yes you might have to fiddle with putting on a modified ROM to get the experience that you like.
Unscientific, I know
I have just showed my new desk buddy a picture of the Sammy, he said, oh I have one of those dysons. It's great how they follow you.
My mind has just gone PoP!
so I guess the question for all these variants is.....WILL THEY BLEND!
Professor Brian Cox would be hosting a show with celebrity guests and members of the public on the science behind Doctor Who.
I predict he mentions the TOMTIT
Just what is it that IBM actually do?
I mean, I worked for them before the great TUPE and I have no idea.

Seriously, banning the word hobby will stop the paedophiles?
How about making it law for paedophiles to always have the online handle of nonce1 etc
That way we should easily spot them.....

Women have a face?!
Apparently they have two, one on each boob...
Well I am surprised that no one saw this coming

Re: Two Grand Canyons?
Well, Olympic size pools measure: 50 metres long, 25 metres wide, and a minimum of 2 metres deep.
(25m x 50m x 2m = 2,500m3; 1L = 0.001m3 so 2,500 x 1000 = 2,500,000L)
So that would mean that 7.5e+5m divided by 25
Of fuggedit it's about 29824 long (in OSSP) (Olympic Size Swimming Pools)
And in some places 400 OSSP depths deep
I think I've lost the will to continue...can anyone help
*Paris because I now know how she feels
Well that seems a lot, but how much would it cost to update it?
Is it wring that I read "and a couple of days later were ready to attack this big block of powder"
And thought, jeez man, that's a lot of charlie.

five minutes of clicking and buzzing followed by another five minutes of pretending not to work.

Re: Shows a lack of logic
Indeed, but some stereotypes are true - just ask my wife.
You obviously have never worked with female techies.
Shows a lack of logic
Women, and I know the rest of you might not like this are .....logical creatures.
They follow rules a lot better than us men folk, this make them a lot better with certain tasks. However, they are not as inventive. This sounds cruel, but it is by no means an insult. For instance, get two coders a male and a female.....guess which one you can actually read if they leave. And don't even get me started on flow charts detailing the who what when were why.
I have stated on these forums many time, the IT industry would be a lot better off with more women.
Seems that Big Brother is going to get a taste for Apples
That certainly is a leap of the imagination.
This is the register, it is enjoyed by meat devourers and leaf eaters alike.
I have never read an article and thought sandal wearing leaf munching lefty, nor have I thought that an article is slightly more right of Genghis Khan.
But it is certainly true that the countryside alliance is a bloodsport promoter, just like Greenpeace is a wind loving tree hugging organisation.
Couldn't even defend a website
I'm just wondering if intimidating computers can actual fix a website. Or do they have skilled IT workers?
Surely I'm not the only one that is actually hoping that they use a 3rd party vendor that operates out of India.
I'm not even trusted in buying pens.
OOOH credit card sized.....
For a cool device that is credit card sized....

Have you ever wondered why it was so sunny during July?
Yep, you guessed it, they wiped the cloud too.
Is this an actual cock up?
Jobs was just a marketing CEO. A good one, but that's it.
No, even though we don't like to admit it, Jobs was also an engineer, a marketing drone wouldn't understand the technology. He was a spin doctor, but show me an engineer that doesn't believe his product is awesome. To simply suggest that he was a drone is appalling. And I'm a fandroid through and through!
Fetch me my Troll hat!
This is just a smear campaign, America is land of the free.......etc
It's called flash for a reason!

Yorkshire tea for hard water

Please order me 4 large tanks of black market Halon and some breathing apparatus.

Just for the record, Sky's GO is a rebranded Roku which includes Roku apps access......I don't work for Sky, but c'mon that's awesome!
