Clearly this enterprising person has taken a leaf out of Murdoch's book when it comes to pricing too.
Re: Developers take note!
Clearly they do, otherwise they would be pricing them at the lower level. If people didn't buy them at the stoopidly high prices then they wouldn't price them that high. Since they do price them that high then I can only assume that there are punters out there with more money than sense who will pay for the stuff.
No-one has provided the most important piece of information yet....
What game was he playing?
And there was I wondering what a "Gravity powered light ship" was.........
Sounded really cool, too!
No, it's OK. You can always fill your phone and/or laptop with porn before you leave home. Then you can watch it wherever you like without having to rely on the generosity of free wi-fi to facilitate such activities.
there fixed that for you

Re: Missed the Mark
I wouldn't so much put it as "coasting" as this implies a lack of desire to do anything. They have just become so big that doing *anything* involves too much "process" and as such takes wayyyyyyyy too long. If it ever happens. The joy of being a big company without a charismatic dictator as a leader.
Well my woman can knit and plays computer games, although she doesn't like the FPS type as they make her feel sick :-0 There's nothing quite like a session of shouting at each other for doing stupid things and dying to make for as happy homelife. :-)
She sounds like a bitch from hell. Steer well clear!
Well thanks El Reg, this was the first time I'd heard it was available in 3D. I had seen the beeb plugging it endlessly, but no mention of 3Dability. I shall look forward to watching that when I get home on my 3D TV :-) (missed it at the weekend first time round due to freezing my ass of in a foreign country and being at a friends for dinner when it was on)
Slaps forehead with palm.....
"Our social behavior is quite damaging to privacy. Technology has outraced our social intellect,"
I guess that's what usually happens when you give powerful computers to everyone.......
Bulls**t, if someone tried to tell me my TV wasn't compatible, I would politely suggest that perhaps it was their device which wasn't compatible with my TV and that they can fix it and return it forthwith. Everything else works nicely with it, they need to get their house in order.
I still think of Twitter users
Now I can add Twitter investors into that category......
Does anybody on this site actually have a pair of them?
Or are *all* the comments completely unfounded rubbish?
It all sounds
Completely loopy to me.
Sorry i'll just get my coat.....
The practical alternative to work.....
Is, as always, a wonderful thing. My boss recently sent round a document describing how complex systems are usually running very close to the point of failure by their very nature. And how what looks like an obvious reason for failure after the fact is not usually so obvious beforehand.
Just glad it wasn't me though that did this one, would not look good on my CV....
At least that's what they say they did......
What? You mean it doesn't come with a lifetime guarantee?
It's only a fucking door for christs sake. Think I'll go off and patent the tree or something equally stupid.
Re: Regardless of the merits of the Apple patent
I think the idea here in Europe is that you file the patent before you tell everyone how great it is. hardly difficult for a trivial patent such as this, surely?
Re: Perspective please
African or European?
Or another plan
My desk phone has a USB port on it, which charges my S4 quite happily as I sit here "working". Poor unfortunate iPhone users tried it and found that their phones wouldn't talk nicely :-) I just like it that my phone charges my phone :-)
Re: I agree...
I guess it depends on how much stuff his department bought normally. This level of spending could have just been small-fry compared to the departmental budget.
Mines the one with the dodgy invoices in the pocket.
Get someone else to encrypt the data and not tell you the password until you are safely at your destination. They can't get you to give them something that you don't have. Carrying a signed affidavit confirming that you do not know the password might help. But they'd probably put you in jail anyway.
Bring on the hubris! Should provide plenty of fanbois troll-bait :-)
Now there will be even more people failing to sell them!
Playmobil - or it didn't happen
Paris, because, well obviously
Re: I did some of the debunking on that one
Phones don't talk to me about phones
I bought my daughter a phone for her 7th birthday so I could keep in touch with her. Seemed like a good plan, my ex-wife was complaining about how I should keep in touch with my daughter. Nothing fancy, just a nice simple pink girly phone she could text and call me and the rest of her relatives she doesn't get to see since the divorce. But my ex deemed it "age unsuitable" and confiscated it. Then to *really* take the piss she gave it back to her when I took her away on holiday at half term so she could stay in touch with her and then re-confiscated it after the holiday.
Well refusing to be surveyed might have been a good place to start ;-)
Re: Baluddy useless
Well somebody has to......
And many more who treat them like shite until they fall apart. Then throw them away and buy a new one.
Clearly you are a figment of your own imagination
Print me a pizza, I'll be back for breakfast!
Beer obviously as this goes so well with pizza :-)
Re: Reading this page...
Yes it is just you
Well I think they're cool and want one!
Or should I just wait until the implantable version comes out? ;-) Science Fiction becomes science fact before our very eyes. So what if they monitor where I am and what I do on the web, this happens anyway, I carry a mobile phone around with me and use Google to search for stuff. I just think the idea of a computer that you wear that you talk to is just amazingly cool.
So what about if you drive into a different country
Does it notice you have left the country and not charge you for the distances you drive over there? I would be well pissed off to be taxed for driving in another country. Oh a bit like I am at the moment.......
Apple - please - fuck - off - now - thank - you
Surely if they haven't got an internet connection they can go to the library and use teh free ones there that we are already providing for those who do not possess either a computer or an internet connection. In these supposed times of austerity subsidising internet access for unemployed people strikes me as a waste of national debt money. Stop looking for ways to be spending fecking money we haven't got you tossers!
Won't somebody think of
The taxi drivers
Re: Camera watching me, watching them...
Errrrrrrm hands up how many of use have already put a camera in our living room courtesy of their PS3 move or XBox Kinect?
So we have innocently put a camera on an internet connected device in our house. doh!
