If it was going to end..... Would they let us know before hand?
Think of the consequences of actually knowing the world will end on a particular day three weeks from now.
What would YOU do if you knew it was certain?
Well, I still get 80% of the original purchase price when I sell my pristine condition iPhone after a year.
So the cost is not at all what it seems to upgrade considering I got peanuts for a top condition Sensation and Desire after a year.
It's like buying a classic car, they hold their value.
What! this story is NOT about Apple?
What is the world coming to.
Re: Ice on Mercury
But what the hell do we do with it?
The queues are long enough without people coming in and asking for a 3D print of their dog...............
One test says one thing and another test says something else.
Maybe look to see who says what and then look at who they are affiliated to......
Junk Food of the Sky's
Next it will be a reheated Big Mac and Fries with a Shake.
I remember when flying to the Far East meant proper cutlery, proper food, drinks when asked for and that was in economy. Now you get greasy American junk to be eaten with fingers that probably need a wash served in a cardboard box. When you get off at the other end all 200 passengers will reek of this greasy menu.
This is called progress.
Re: I will have to revise my numbers as well.
It's going the way of the Zune and the Kin.
Does that mean that we will have to input our ethnicity into the phone when going through the set up menu?
What else will they want? A DNA sample?
Now if it was bundled
With free porn channels........ Yippee!
The headlines 'Sony share go through the roof!'
Hope it wasn't the Nokia Lumina 920,
Must have discovered it when they saw he was walking funny!
Imagine the search........ FORCEPS.....
Actually listen to what these shysters actually say....
If they were an advertisement for Private Education I'd go comprehensive.
Tried it with the 'new' windows 8 and look where that went...
In return for an app you get a shiny new phone?
There were but four takers.
He forgot to pay his bill...
Not surprising considering how their router modems work and the small print that comes with them. Especially when you could only change your setting through their servers.
'We reserve the right to monitor your Internet access and deny you any content we deem inappropriate'
Then after the out cry
'We have stopped denying you access to what we deem inappropriate but we reserve the right to change our mind when we want.'
So what's new?
I'd better not
Upset the guy in my local Chinese take away!
Imagine the hell I'd have to endure?
So they sold...
Four phones this week, a record!
Just shows us the mentality of our friends from across the pond.
No wonder so much shit emanates to the rest of the world from there.
I have 11 including my first ever nokia brick phone from 1995. They make great children's toys ....
Maybe one day they will become antiques
'Did people really have to hold it next to their ears to make a call Great Grandpa?'
As my nephew asked me the other day, 'what kind of video games did you play?'
My reply ' on with a square white ball and two white lines to bounce them off'
How things have changed.
So Amazon makes Billions, that's business.
So Amazon pays little tax, there is nothing illegal here.
So the Government tries to claim it is unethical to do this, yet MP's have had their fingers in the till for years but claim 'we Woz just following the rules'.
MP's pretend to sort out expenses but then buy houses and then rent them out to each other so that they can claim housing expenses. Effectively one MP pays another MP rent using tax payers money.
Joe Public is in the middle of a recession and looks for bargains because he can't fund his expenses from the tax payer. If Joe Public find a cheap bargain because of Amazon so what.
MP's and Government need to look in the mirror.
Confusius he say
You're lucky, here in the UK I don't exist, the nearest town is now called the name of a town 40 miles away and parts of Wales are now in England. If I try to navigate to my address it sends me to a pond 11 miles away in a village whose name does not match the village it sends me to.
Confused? You will be after next weeks episode of........
Shoulda gone to Tom Tom...........
Re: Was there a survey?
85% of ? 10? 20? 100? 1000? 10,000? 100,000?
If there are any win 8 users out there, did a little box come up on the screen asking for you to agree to Microsoft harvesting your details or if not is it a program that phones home without interaction.
Re: You have the right to remain guilty...
But of course, IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE.............
Isn't that what the self righteous always spout at a time like this?
It doesn't mean that they won't bring out something 'new' that won't be transferable to older devices.
It just means there will be support, just like XP so this is just sound bite advertising.
The European courts will probably stop it claiming privacy concerns. Still, I'd like to swear at it and see what response I get!
Re: More fake statistics paid by Microsoft
It's all down to sustainability and now win 8 has been found with more holes than a Swiss cheese........
To be arrested for hurting someone's feelings or disagreeing with someone's point of view?
That is the question.
Shit, there's no hope for anyone is there!
Nero fiddled while Rome Burned.
HTC just fiddled.
But should we be surprised that this software, after years of development, months of testing, billions spent and finally released has more holes in it than Gorgonzola cheese?
So he stole a few items and left did he?
Who are they kidding. They will probably find him face down in a river somewhere or else never find the body and then close the case.
Hope this will be one in the eye to the 'authorities'.
Is his name Private Pike....
Re: Might be FANTASTIC
But it will have to be so fantastic and more than amazing to stop the slide.
But will it be just another touch screen phone?

Re: Why are they wasting all this money??
Would you put yourself up for the PCC election for the salary of £85,000 a year?
Because that's what it will cost.
Re: Biggest waste of money.
Expect a voter turnout of less than 3% and that is optimistic.
Re: i wonder...
Yes it looks like the Tories are masters of deviant behaviours, stemming from their Public Schools no doubt.
However Labour are catching up not so much with deviant behaviours but fraudulent, stemming from the 'loophole' of being able to buy a house on expenses and then renting it out to a fellow MP who them claims housing expenses for renting, while at the same time renting his house out to the first MP for the same purpose.
If they had used their brains like this while in power the UK would be the richest country in the world.
So at the next election we have a choice between deviants and the devious.
There have been a number of complaints recently where a school introduced fingerprint readers for the diner queue. Rather than using money or a card to pay for you meal, you use a fingerprint.
Of course the machine 'does not' record finger prints, though it must contain a database of them many parents are concerned about data protection issues. The system was introduced without a consultation. It would be quite easy for the police or local authority to get access to it simply by requesting it through a court order.
The danger is that like the DNA data base many innocent young people can find themselves on the system simply because the police have been having a trawl.
But hey if you have nothing to hide? As they say.
"Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation."
They are talking about the mini 'mini' ipad, screen size 5.67893 display with a pixel count of 1,000,000?
Patented next Wednesday in America.
He just needs to pay a bigger bribe.
If it was on colour, I'd buy the purple one. It isn't so I won't.
Still sell more than the surface......
Re: Savagery no it's open source...
No, this is the first true open source network and we should all applaud!
Has just been axed from Apple and is probably looking for a job.
He turned Dixons/Currys round so why not give him a punt?
Produce a telly that is better than the rest.
Of course they will pay it!
This is telling is it not?
Re: Sympathy vacuum.
