Re: Pure Crap
^ Irony bypass.
Re: I thought you would be
It seems you are one of those people who's job consists of going to meetings, giving presentations, and inputting data for reports nobody will ever read.
We have many people at my workplace that complete these dubious tasks. We have no idea what their purpose is or why they are paid comparably to skilled engineers.
Productive work is done on a desktop/laptop, no amount of prancing around with a tablet will change that.
Re: True innovation
You don't think the guy just took a photo of a desktop PC bootscreen error, then displayed it fullscreen on the phone?
Would be a fine joke to play.
"We are positioning ourselves for long-term growth and I’m confident that we have the breadth and depth of management talent to deliver on our mission of connecting the world through games," he said.
No mention of the people who actually do the work then. Management Talent = oxymoron.
Re: White v Hispanic and Black
Would these people be demanding secession if Mitt Romeny had won? No of course not, their God, Guns, Cross Burning, Tea-Bagging fruit loop agenda would of been followed.
Obama won, grow up and get over it.
Re: Game Over
I never made the connection, but everytime I shake my 'gentleman' after urinating, the nearest printer to the bathroom prints out a test page.
I assume I owe Apple royalties, otherwise they will convince a Judge to take my penis off the market.
Re: Lot of hipstery in this thread so far
*sniff* "I don't need an iPhone or anything else to know that I'm better than you." *sob*
Posting a comment intending to annoy other readers, then acting like a child when you are corrected. Like I give a fuck if it's your first smartphone.
Re: Obviously A Fanboi ...
Is the reviewer perhaps the hidden love child of Steve Jobs and Tim Cook. Spawned in the Apple Labs. Home schooled using only SIRI and Apple products, no sense or knowledge of any other technology. The iClone LIVES!
The worst review I've ever read -
1. Grovelling indroduction
2. Foaming at the gash about the appearance.
3. Ignoring massive flaws.
That had no place on this site, it was a essentially a review about what a phone case looked like. Do your readers a favour Reg, execute the simpering idiot who wrote the review, then delete any reference to him from your archives.
Re: But Surely
You surely do have more mapping options. It's just the default iphone map app, that most Apple uses will use is the crap new one.
Most Apple uses have been brainwashed to accept what they are given, they wouldn't have a clue how to use a different system. "I don't want to know how it works, I don't want to mess around, my iPhone just works!" squeals the Apple user.
So thanks to this philosophy, Apple now have a userbase that is mostly incompetent and unwilling to learn anything about the devices they use. Unable to find their arses with both hands, they will wave their $600 mistake at anyone with half a brain shouting "MAPS BROKEN!"
Stop trying to spin these failures Frank, it make you look like a moron.
Re: See also
Any delays were due to Apple trying to finalise patents on the following -
1. Moving objects from one part of the world to another.
2. The process of creating seemingly random connectors for devices (this involves rolling 2 dice, snake eyes gets your new iPhone a parallel port).
Sadly, only one was granted -
Concocting a tsunami of bullshit that convinces the idrones to buy the same tired product for the 5th year running.
Notice you're not trying to defend it though. Not even the most blinkered, deluded and brainwashed of Apple apologists can talk up this overpriced, under-featured garbage.
Re: That's all?
"and you know the performance of this phone's CPU how?"
The CPU performance is perhaps your only stab at making this aged and bland product relevant.
All the hype, the endless wittering of Apple users, months upon months of it. And the result of all of this is?
You get one extra line of icons.
Shameless, self promoting recruitment drone buys stupidly priced laptop that fails.
Dell, not recognizing this 'giant' of the industry, treats him like every other user.
Sense of entitlement shattered. World + Dog applauds.
Well after sanctimoniously lecturing me with your comical 'facts' you now look like a giant bellend. Well done.
I'm also indifferent to android btw
Re: But the real stand-outs are two new imaging features.
"...it's called turning the lights on to take a photo"
And if you're outside at night? Make a habit of rotating the Earth to match your lighting requirements do you?
"A4 and A5 are Apple-designed ARM derivatives"
Derivatives is the key word. You must remember Apple engineer fuck-all themselves. They simply take something already invented, put it in a glass case and then claim everyone else is copying them.
Re: @ AC 1433h - All seems rather unfair......
"Enjoy a downvote for poor logic."
Ooooh, a downvote from an Apple nerd. That will keep you awake at night.
Re: Apple Schmapple
Rambling Apple nerd. Why use just one post when you can make 3!
American Soldier? So what. Citizens of your county might get all misty eyed and start weeping when 'our boys in the military' are mentioned, not so much over here.
Arming countries in turmoil then blowing the shit out of them a decade later doesn't speak to me of any clear forethought or wisdom.
Not saying those regimes didn't need to go, but take a look at your own now and again. Assange is an asshole granted, but look how easily he's made your paymasters look impotent. I fear that's the reason they want him.
Re: Very strange behaviour indeed
Give it up, you've been found out. Your credibility is zero.
I would be delighted if somehow I was mis-sold an iPhone and given a Galaxy instead. Lets face it, its a far better piece of equipment.
Re: Very strange behaviour indeed
Hasham, you clearly don't care to understand what the Beastie Boy ethos evolved into. The fact you used a phrase like 'you created a few pop songs' shows not only your misguided ignorance, but also how much of a bellend you are.
Starting with Paul's Boutique, the Beasties created sublime music that influenced a generation, and more than just a few here I imagine. Your attempt to lessen this is comically inept.
Yauch then devoted his time promoting non aggression, and attempted to raise awareness of oppressed nations. All on his own dime. You think this guy wanted to shill crap to stupid fat Americans after his death? You can't see how this would be the antithesis to his character?
To borrow from Bill Hicks also. Stop trying to put a dollar sign on everything, you sucker of Satan's cock.
Pass the bucket
"We are an Apple kind of family," said another.
Ughhh..I just threw up in my mouth a little. Imagine the smirk on the Apple exec's face when reading this.
I find it horrifying people are buying into this rancid horseshit. Somehow using a brand of technology is a 'lifestyle' choice. If you need a PC or phone to describe to the world what kind of person you are, then you are already intellectually dead.
Apple fans about to comment and defend this madness - Screw you in advance. You have already been brainwashed and cannot be trusted to have an opinion.
Re: Pretty solid case
Do you spend all of your free time hunting the net to find dubious articles supporting Apple's right to rule the world?
Oooh! Some meatheads were too stupid to realise what they buying! You're using this article for evidence?
I would advise taking off the i-groinal attachment, turning off your i-device and learning to accept Apple is just another company that makes gadgets.
Things that used to rule the Net
Do you remember newsgroups?
Do you remember IRC?
Do you remember ICQ?
Do you remember Messenger?
Do you remember Friends Reunited ?
Do you remember My Space?
Do you remember Facebook...
Re: Trying to create a joke since forever
With such a bizarre and impenetrable post, you have made yourself the joke. Consider your long quest over.
Thanks for proving my point. Getting all butt-hurt when someone insults your precious.
Also, try and spell 'imminent' correctly. I would of thought your magical I-Device would have corrected that for you.
Its just a matter of time. Apple's line of mediocre, overpriced tat will eventually fall back in with the rest of the pack.
Honestly, some of the Apple fans here should listen to themselves. Desperately listing profit projections and possible new features. Why the hell does it matter to you so much?
Re: doesn't bode well for the new Nexus 7
Using a 7 incher in anger will get you on the sex offenders register.
I'm sure most of us have made errors on a rare occasions.
I once had missed a nights sleep and clicked 'shut down' rather 'log off' when remoting into a server. A file server, with people working on open documents.
I replied to an email rather than forwarded it. The e-mail was slagging off a customer who was a giant bellend and this and some other thoughts were sent back to him. Got away with this somehow.
And so on.
Imagine the bowel emptying horror when this chap realised what he had done.
Same old useless horseshit
So after all these months, this the best Meg Whitman can come up with.
Why bother to innovate, create new services and products, attract more customers.
Naw, we'll just fire 10,000 staff to push up profits in a year or so. We'll ignore the fact we have stagnated utterly.
A decision a first-year beancounter could of shat out while in a coma.
What a useless fucking hag she is, HP must be delighted to continue their record of brain-damaged CEO's that somehow fell into the job.
Oh, time to 'invent' another new product
Apple puts Television into white case, adds Fisher Price interface for idiot consumers who are to stupid to record a program.
And in 10 years time we'll have Stephen Fry and various other weeping mendicants telling us how Jobs invented the TV.
"Jobs then invented a magical and revolutionary device for beaming content *directly* into your living room! Via a magic mirror! And that's not all, you could change this 'image' to suit your viewing tastes!"
The perp was Australian....
True* story from my experience at Australian customs. After displaying my Passport I was asked some testing questions.
Customs Officer - "Do you have a criminal record?"
Mr Bungle - "No, I didn't realise you still needed one to get in"
*Disclamer - may or may not be true.
