Re: Love the extended crown
Push it in and you get a meltdown.
The people that make up the rules are in charge....
At times like this the freedom of the press and the freedom of the judiciary from interference from the legislature is essential.
Unfortunately the judiciary increasingly has its strings pulled by the legislature and does what it is told.
For now the press is still free, but how long before Government changes the rules and legislates to change this. Imagine that after the Leveson inquiry the biggest advocate for press control, the Labour Party get into power, they could dictate what can and what cannot be printed by the papers.
It's like watching an alcoholic drink themselves to death.
Not comfortable viewing at all.
A Phoenix will rise from the ashes.....
As usual the 'leaks' begin before the product is announced, generating interest and speculation which is all that Apple desires. It's Advertising Jim Apple style............
A retina style display is actually sufficient, a more than retina style display on a standard laptop screen, 15", 13", 11'" etc really makes no difference to what you see, 336ppi are seen no differently from 666ppi, but as someone else commented Apple scales better than Windows.
We will probably see a 1000ppi 11" screen in a few years but for what purpose?
I'm more interested in colour reproduction, light and reflections than I am with the pixels per inch.
It's a bit like this FAD for 3D, it's not necessary, doesn't enhance a crap film any more than if it were on a normal screen and imposes restrictions on the way you have to view it.
All it gives is bragging rights.
The hard part is proving it, especially as nothing can be disclosed because of national security.
Why bother, spend the money on the production.
3D is dying, why bother? Rather than spend the money on this niche market and the few people who have the TV's spend the money on the production and story and make it great.
It has been the intentional drip feeding of the removal of the expectation of privacy over a number of years that has led the public to sleep walk into this situation.
Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and others all present an outwardly respectable face of a competent business, yet at the same time chipping away at our expectations of privacy. They claim our data is protected and the more they were trusted the more they were able to take. The public went along with it, well you had to if you wanted to be part of it.
Now of course, we have seen the other side of the coin, not only is out private information used to profile each an everyone of us but Governments caught on pretty quickly that information is power and control in this electronic data age. Instead of a product or commodity they use fear and the carrot of keeping us safe as an excuse.
The only way to fight back is to withdraw from society and disappear, which is pretty much impossible.
Governments will never stop, mainly because they can never be trusted because their whole sense of being is to stay in power and to do this they need leverage. They will legislate to the very ends of the earth to keep the little people in check. They will bury the secrets even deeper than before, so deep that even whistleblowers will think that there is nothing to blow the whistle on.
Nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear?
Time to start wearing my tinfoil hat.
Is the pyramid at the Louvre patented?
There will always be a cost... To the 'customer'.
Stick with 3G and chill out if you lose your signal, it's not the end of the world having to wait a few minutes.
The only game I ever finished.
The Aussies are still sore about losing......
'We know about that bug'
But the bug was still there!
Ok I believe you this time... Not.
Another couple of years, loop holes will be closed....
Governments are frightened of big businesses, they are the ones that pull the strings.

Re: Landfill iPhones for Landfill Windows Phones
Trade for a Nexus 4?
That could have won the best joke at the Edinburgh Festival....
Tesco has a Surface on display next to a load of ebook devices, I have never seen anyone even look at it let alone try it out.
It is not often in life I can say with all honesty that 'they are really taking the piss!
I sold a pristine 4S for £190 and have had someone offer me £350 for a pristine 5.....
I'd love to know the stats on how many trade ins they get...
Let's be realistic, we will wipe ourselves out one way or another, meteor, virus, bacteria, atomic war, super nova, alien invasion.....
What's so worrying when a bit of global warming is thrown into the mix?
Really? I mean really?
Do you think I'm stupid or what?
Missing the point
This article made me chuckle, inspired comedy and tech rolled into one.
He was the stooge
They didn't get the real attackers....

Faster than a speeding bullet, must be an Androi...
Like the Captain of the Concordia, they are all fighting to be the first into the lifeboats....
The change from iOS 6 to iOS 7 won't even register on the Richter scale of tech in a years time let alone 10 years. While it is the 'next big thing' today it will have no real significance in any history book.
So who cares anyway?
Re: Thats strange...
Whether the gate is locked or not, it is no ones fault but the driver. Common sense using your brain and two eyes should have been enough to prevent this.
It's amazing that some people blame the technology and everything BUT the driver.
Follow a Tom Tom sat nav from WINSFORD to NORTHWICH and it will take you down a small single track to a railway crossing that has not been opened in 50 years. Seven warning sign tell the driver it is a dead end, not suitable for large vehicles and is access to properties only.
Yet on a regular basis lorries and coaches have to be towed out.
Sat nav has turned drivers into empty headed zombies.
Re: Oh, the choices...
If you have a large ars* you will find your back pocket a comfortable fit.
Gold, the new Black
You PC puss*es you!
Look it is a phone for girls, tech heads will opt for the most advanced one, but girls like the bright colours. Their brains are wired that way.
Whereas the 5S sold out in seconds, the 5C will drip feed onto the market over the next year and out pace it. Girls like their bling you know.
Sexist? Maybe. True? Yes
I'm a Law Lecturer
Non-practicing perpetual student, those that can do, those that can't teach.
"I'm a Law Lecturer don't you know!"
"You are, are you?"
"Yes, I am, here is my Law Lecturer ID!"
"I see, now fcuk off, I'm the pilot and you're not getting on with me!"
Now that would be proper customer service.
At least it didn't take them as long as RIM/Blackberry to realise they were selling sh*t and stopped in time, before they went bust.
Tolerant of spam?
Spam is their life blood of advertising...
I can only wish that I had a card like that....
Not likely, smart phone cameras will remain a compromise item.
Who owns you baby
Who owns you now?
Because everyone wanted an Apple.
Ok and some wanted an Android as well.
Re: By the time kids today are old enough to be pilots
I have a pilots licence, it is obvious that you do not, so believe me when I say human interaction is still necessary in the sky rather than from an armchair.
Situational awareness can never be inputted in code.
Won't stop them from monitoring you, it's a form of natural selection, make a comment get arrested.

I get on average 25 emails a week proporting to offer SEO all promising a first place. It is a plague and no I have not succumbed to it.
The problem is businesses that play fair don't succeed.......
Re: Bankrupt - No wonder
Greek Islands and Greek mainland.....
They no longer exist, it's now the. German Islands and German mainland of Greece.
Long Live Merkel.... Our New Leader.
Re: Oh, the irony
The. Greeks are still complaining, even after their debts have been paid off by someone else?
Though I do have a little sympathy, they do have to bow down to their new Masters, the Germans, I shudder to think that could have been us if Gordon Brown had stayed around.
He comes out with stuff doesn't he, the problem is what he says makes him look rather intellectually challenged, I do love it when people search through the 'Famous Quotes' book to try and make themselves look clever.
Instead he makes it contrived.
If only All people supported their own countries businesses as well as the Americans do, instead of selling out to foreigners.......
Re: Sounds like some improvements...
Wouldn't it be good if people started to buy the product?
Is it an overpriced tablet? Or an expensive small laptop?
