'People have forgotten just how late the first iPhone arrived ...'

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

It had nothing, yet it changed everything

quite intrigued by the point of this article other than the usual apple bashing to satisfy the grown up kids.

"Indeed" the first iphone had nothing, yet it changed the whole industry for good. Even ElReg predicted back then that "it will fail and fail badly"...... that I call the "nothing to see, nothing to read rubbish" that elreg has published over the years.

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

uninvited

no wonder apple never invites The Register for their events, What's the point in inviting trolls who hate apple so much, all of their headlines for today are about apple. bashing bashing bashing.

Why don't you guys learn from Bill Ray's 2006 article. - http://goo.gl/BFeBDJ

This site used to be funny but that was over 10 years ago. now it is a total joke.

Woz: Microsoft's innovation lead 'worries me greatly'

Earl Jones Of Potatoes
Childcatcher

without apple

Although Woz has my respect, i think no one would know who he is today if Steve Jobs wasn't in the picture.

Where was Woz when apple was nearly bankrupt in 1997 ? He was probably still happy to collect his monthly apple cheque but has he really contributed to the rebirth of apple? The answer is no. Everyone is talking today mr Woz and most talking like the one you're making has a cheap after taste.

Analyst: There are LOADS of iPhone 5s, Apple is keeping them back

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

ANAL .... IST

Surely ElReg can do better than this!

Another "ANAL ist" has suggested that ElReg most loyal readers have given up on life. The Same "anal ist" and without providing any evidence has also put forward an argument which proves that the irrational hatred some of its commentators have exhibited is only enforcing the belief that ElReg survival is in jeopardy....

if you react to this rubbish then the story becomes true in your "world"

Thanks for treating some of your readers likes idiots ElReg!

Apple and Google in talks to end patent war?

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

the tip of the iceberg

"Google said to tap Barclays to sell Motoroal's Home Business"

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-29/google-said-to-hire-barclays-to-sell-motorola-s-home-business.html

"The world’s biggest smartphone maker is in talks with major telecom carriers on Apple’s home-turf such as Verizon Wireless about modified designs in Samsung Galaxy devices. It is also closely partnering with Microsoft (MS) to cut its dependency on Google Android, according to officials Wednesday."

http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/tech/2012/08/133_118544.html

Not quite like this article makes the news sound. When you take news in the two links provided, you rather take a hint as to what may have realized with last week's Apple win over samsung.

In other words, apple has sent a clear message and the message reads "Don't F***K with us"

lets hate hate apple

Let's hate hate apple and support one another by up-voting the most hateful comment about apple and fanboys. This is what ElReg's commentators are known to do anyway.

They are experts in everything, I mean, they are know it all. Visionaries, judges, lawyers, politicians, elitists and never wrong.

easy pick

just provide the link to the telegraph this way you don't have to add all those grain of salt.

Iran is such an easy target to pick on, the mass media are doing a good job creating a boogie man out of a peaceful country. YES, more peaceful than US, UK and israel combined. After all, they haven't attacked any country in over 300 years.

gone mad

quite speechless at some apple haters who suggest that buying apple product is like financing terrorism.

So far, 30 individuals seem to agree with his/her rubbish. This is not fanaticism, this is depseration beyond belief.

You're entitled to hate apple all you like even if the behavior itself is quite disturbing but to call people who buy apple products "terrorist sponsors" is the most pathetic argument an android fanboy has made.

get some girlfriends, there's a life outside your hatred of others. grow up for god sake.

apple is going to tax us, send us to war, jail us for smoking weed and crash the economy like our elected leaders have and still do today.

It's a pity i wanted to get some apple shares back when they were cheap so i can be wealthy today but someone convinced me to adhere to elReg's analysis and prediction and wage daily bashing against the naughty fruity dangerous animal called apple.

Jobs: 'I'll spend my dying breath destroying Android'

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

$5 billion

In a way this shows that the advertiser giant which our media like to call "tech giant" acknowledged that android infringes on patents held by apple. That's quite revealing and interesting if google offered to settle it with $5 billion.

Say what you like about the man, he has principals and isn't shy to tell it as it is.

Ten reasons why you shouldn't buy an iPhone 5

Earl Jones Of Potatoes

The Inquirer ?

surely this is a new low for ElReg. The iPhone has never been announced and this "article" makes ElReg appear like a troll. probably a tactic aimed at getting attention but at what cost ?

This "author" has yet to learn from Bill Ray's "why the iPhone will fail and fail badly". I recon he was as right as this author will be.

HP murders webOS tablets, phones

Earl Jones Of Potatoes
Childcatcher

pissing around the pot

in a way HP tried and knew they couldn't compete with iOS. Instead of making another empty promise they decided to take the "no pissing around the pot" approach and in a way, it's brave.

some would argue that if a product doesn't sell it's cause it's not well advertised. If it sells well, it's because of a good advertising campaign. The truth is that a product sells because it is good. If they do not sell, they are not worth it even if billions are spent to make them look like pieces of heaven.

This tells me that google has an ego worth $12BN.

Let's see if their $12bn worth of patents are going to be as dubious as those held by Apple, Oracle and Microsoft as they claimed repeatedly.

deja vu

This reminds me 2002, 2003 & 2004 when iPod killers were trying to convince us that they are a better alternative to Apple's mp3 players. Now it's the iPhone & iPad killers.

Where are those commentators who predicted the end of the iPod, ridiculed the iPhone and predicted its utter failure, then laughed at the iPad as the most useless device ?

Your only power is to up vote what's against apple

The truth of the matter is that many know it all have no vision.

advertising vs Tech field

I tend to agree with most of what was presented. I think that google is very much like an opportunist wealthy spoiled kid playing in a field he doesn't belong.

Android is better off without google. I can even dare and say that Apple would help more android than google had.

After all, it is because of iOS that Android has flourished

One must not forget that google is an advertising company by revenue.

Google claims 'bogus patent' conspiracy against Android

Earl Jones Of Potatoes
Childcatcher

weak strategy

hypocrisy couldn't be more obvious. why did google bid on nortel's patent if you think they are bogus ? and please, spare us the pathetic argument which goes ""instead of competing by building new features or devices, they are fighting through litigation."

an advertising empire cannot be trusted when it ventures into the tech field and pretends the game is unfair when it's not winning.

Sorry google, i won't side with you on this one. You're using android weak strategy to gain sympathy.

google and its "wrong ideas"

i think this shows in a way the weak vision of google and its over the top concept ideas which when put into practice are either ill-timed or just out of touch (e.g. chrome book and googletv)

One must wonder if Google isn't pushing these ideas just to tell the world later on that they were first to do it.

That's expected when an advertising giant by revenue ventures into a tech field. But who cares, ads are making them colossal amount of cash.

Note to Apple: Be more like Microsoft

Earl Jones Of Potatoes
Unhappy

sharing the money

it's funny when the author writes that it is a pity that apple isn't sharing the money with anyone ?

Are we talking about charity or is this just another excuse to bash a successful company ?

Quite frankly, readers like me in here do demand some respect. We know where you stand when it comes to apple but please, stay objective and classy guys.

Jobs picture with a red mark is really unnecessary especially when you're only targeting his picture and no one else.

"Murdoching" freedom and democracy.

Murdoch has corrupted the media as we know it today. journalism has become the tools of lobbyist and powerful politicians.

His media empire is a direct threat to our thinking and perception of events.

Consequently, its corruption is taking over democracy much like cancer does to a healthy body.
