Let me wipe the tears from my eyes!
Re: Life is full
True but in the UK they became the masters at it.
As an iPhone user I say UNDERWHELMING, I cannot see a need to upgrade my 4S at all, the comparison spec sheet on the Apple site confirm what I know.
Life is full
Life is full of hard knocks, if you put yourself out there and demand adoration expect the sh*t that comes with it.
There is a thing such as free speech which the last Government tried to silence by attacking anyone who had an opinion different from them.
The bottom line is this, in life you will meet people you like and don't like, people who are nice and people who are ars*holes. Get used to it.

I always thought that there has to be 'loss' before compensation decided.
I can't go to my insurance company and demand the values of repairs or replacement of my car without showing that I have suffered a loss.
A strange and one sided law made by people who have an 'interest' in the cash outcome.
A shop built on promises, stocked with the Surface, Surface pro, Xbox.... Ummmmm what else ohmI know!
An end of line sale for the Zune and the Kin!
And I suppose a bit of software that will be cheaper to buy on Amazon.
Cameron is busily trying to been seen as decisive, rather than the ditherer he is when it comes to investment and jobs.
The US and Australia have real concerns about the company, whereas we just open our arms here in Blighty.
Peace in our time Dave, peace in our time.
Pretty much every purchaser will pay the extra £15 or so, does this mean it is a tax?
Some people believe Star Trek is real.
Pie in the Sky I think.
Now beam me up Scotty.
I could have sworn
I could have sworn that this goes on already.
For instance, the number of times I have looked at the price of flights, thought that I have found a good deal, looked a bit more, then gone back to the flight I originally decided on and found the price had gone up.
On Amazon, I find something I might like to buy, decide not to but then go back the following day and find the price has gone up.
Now if I find a reasonable deal, I leave that window open then go back to it.
Why not shake hands dig it out together and share the spoils.
Nope too sensible.......
A war appears much too much fun for them.
Thats what the off button is for?
Great I have an idea... Patent the Off Button!
£30 a month?
That's £360 a year of over £1000 over three years so where is the benefit in that?
A business could buy a Dell Inspiron for less than half that, add a three year on site warranty for £120 and stiill save over £600.
Not only that but you can use the Dell anywhere and don't need a continual web connection.
Hire one? NUTS.
Fu*ck up the contract, fail to deliver and get paid. No one had the balls to kick them where they deserve.
HOW MANY OF THESE
Don't we know about yet?
Might find it is endemic in that there is no proper vetting of Android aps.
Written by American scientists and organisations that promote Growth Hormone in cattle and GM crops from the fattest nation in the world.
Food for uranium?
Except for the fat guy in charge most of the population of North Korea is starving and reliant on food aid.
I didn't sell it to them...... Directly!
Ok so I knew the reseller would pass the product on, but who am I to complain, I only want to make money after all. Not my problem!
Its marketing Jim but not as we know it.
Regular little 'snippets' released every couple of weeks keeps the speculation going and the interest alive.
This is all about Apple marketing 101, the next release a couple of weeks from now will be another 'leaked copy) until finally two to three weeks before the official announcement someone will accidentally leave a real one in a bar somewhere.
The choices we may have in 2112
A new phone please.....
A new microwave....
A new computer.....
A new fridge.......
A new cooker.....
A new watch........
A new toaster.......
'certainly sir we stock all these Apple products'
'any other brands?'
'not since the great patent wars of the early 2000's
'nothing but Apple?'
'once you've made your purchase why not celebrate in the pub next door, a meal in the Dog and Apple, I hear the real ales, brewed locally in the Apple brewery is quite nice!'
Thats rich comming out of the mouth of Peter Hain the 'former' minister who was always out of his depth in politics. Why on earth do people listen to him or give him the time of day.
Re: Can you hear
Ah, but I hear the apple fanbois... Laughing, but there is always THE APPEAL,
And now in the US Samsung has lost the case and must pay Apple a cool billion... Ouch!
If I'm Turkish
Then I'm a flamin Dutchman.
It is a change
It is a change to compliment the new Win 8 interface,
That says it all......
He walks out of the door
And continues the circuit of well paid jobs for the boys.
Next we may hear he is CEO of some council, then when he fails he moves on to the next one and the next one and the next one and the next one.
It's all in the small print of nearly every contract you sign...
Section 108.9 (C5)
Subsection 24.2i (2)
Paragraph 345.9 (z)
Sub paragraph 23 (a)
'whatever we promise to deliver we can change at any time, now or forever in the future, and that if you feel you are being butt-fuc**d you probably are, but there is nothing you can do about it. So cough up the cash or f**k off, unless you are tied into our 3 year contract in which case we've got your ar*se and you are my bi*ch.'
Re: Dear Facebook....
There was never any doubt, it had already been decided.......
Re: Flawed methodology
Realistically it's the one you don't see that causes the most damage.
Some people are surrounded by a reality distortion bubble.
Remember what happened
Remember what happened to the ACS Law here in the UK. Was it the demand letters or the way they were menacing that stuffed this firm.
Company can remain anonymous! Where is the fair and open justice in that!
Companies will pursue anyone who says anything against them which could set legal precedence over free speech.
While 'nasty' trolling is unacceptable, just remember that if you put yourself out there you have to expect a bit of this and that back.
Celebs that complain, for instance, after tweeting/facebooking how great their car is, the amazing products they use for their hair, nails, face (product advertising for which they get paid) and then get upset when a few people point out how crap they are, should expect a bit of trolling.
They need to grow a thicker skin and not throw their dummy out of the pram every time it doesn't go their way.
Companies are begining to do the same thing, if they get insulted or get a bad review they demand the comments are removed or threaten court action. So far the courts have taken a fair look at it but who knows what the future holds.
Double take, thought it was the iPhone then saw the branding.
In answer to why Apple have not come knocking, easy answer.
It is crap, won't sell much and will have no detrimental effect on profits, unlike the S3 which does everything as well, if not better.
If the FLA say its true then it must be?
Re: Le Reg foreign desk,
Losing a key and changing the locks is one thing,
But changing the infrastructure of an entire building
Is entirely different!
It's nice to see the French commit a faux pas!
