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.

Gold, the new Black
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
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.
One down 100,000,000 to go...
Re: Just a drop in the ocean
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?

"I wear non-latex gloves when in public "
You kinky devil you!
Ok so as you get mugged the dirty little thief will insist on taking a high resolution picture of your fingerprints then head home and produce a latex copy of them to break the security on your phone?
Put it into perspective please.
Walter Mitty or Baron Munchausen?
They don't have many historical places in the USA, they tend to be more recent.
We have the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Winsor, Edinburgh, York and 10 million other historical sites of interest...
The USA has Steve Jobs boyhood home?
Maybe they could put a blue plaque on it.....
Re: It'll get fixed.. Nope
So much for the talk of failure
I ordered mine online at 4 minutes past midnight and will have to wait until next week.
Yes Fandroids may scoff and find fault, but the bottom line is people want to buy these phones.
This is not about shipping phones to a shop, Samsung I'm talking about you, this is actual sales.
As for iOS 7....
200 million people can't be wrong can they?
Another nail in the coffin I think, probably didn't pay their electricity or phone bills.......
Someone I know was waving an iphone 5 around, commenting, I asked if he had just bought it.
He replied he had and that it only cost him £30.
It transpired a visitor to his premises had offered it to him along with a blackberry and new Nokia, he bought all three for £30. The visitor, a taxi driver had quite a business.
He passed the other two on. However the iPhone was password locked so he phoned Apple for an activation code claiming he had forgotten his account details. In his own words, "when you phone Apple and talk to someone who sounds sharp and awake, put the phone down, try again until you hear someone who sounds like he couldn't care less, then ask for the code."
It took him less than 15 minutes to activate a lost/stolen phone.
I wonder if this can be used on the 5S
My perception on battery life with an iPhone 5, holds charge well at first but once down to 80% it depletes more quickly.
Average power consumption before the upgrade would leave me with 63%
Average power consumption after upgrade leaves me with 53% and that is on a quiet day.
They bitch and whine about everything actually.....
@Sorry that handle is already taken
"I suspect Google will want to know about that!"
Google already know ...........
Crikey, reading this review article has made me want to comit suicide, Tony Smith is really nit picking to find fault, if that's all there is it's actually not bad is it.
The tone of the article is sooooo depressing that I am about to cut my wrists.
Re: The reason invisibility only lasts for 30 mins
No no, the Koreans have invented a product call 'bird free', a gel that appears to them as a ball of fire so they avoid roosting. It's now being used by many councils in the UK as an alternative to bird spikes.
Unfortunately, to us the product looks like yellow custard.....
I assume that when covered in this it will blend in with the yellow of the sunset.
Re: Here we go again.
And we can do nothing about it........
Re: Good. But slow.
And still no one buys them
I'm glad they have so much time on their hands
Re: Which explains why it's so darned hard to swat a fly
Why swat when you can poison them and watch them die slowly?
Couldn't they have found a more manly moniker?
Where the hell do you find a beaver to get its arse juice?
Damn that is so perverted, this will surely be banned as was the use of hamsters and toilet rolls by EU directive 234/45.ARS3/Y0R-UP/342-2
Has anyone asked the beavers for their opinion?
But still no one buys them?
'Good god you're a thick trolling cunt. Kindly fuck off.'
Says everything there is to say about the state of the education system.
How can something as simple as an upgrade or new installation be made as difficult or as complicated as this?
Ah, when Microsoft is involved.
Lets see now, how complicated or difficult will it be to upgrade to iOS 7 or Mavericks?
Wonder ow much it will cost me?
Will I lose folders or have to reinstall?
Crikey, if this were to happen here we'd all be jailed for gossiping,
Have you heard Apple might release a retina screen ipad mini.........
Will not be long
Will not be long before ISP's are forced to ban its use.......
Must slant ! Must slant !
Noooooooooooooooo ! Stupid iPad
!!!!!!!!! ¡¡¡¡ nope
Definitely in the public interest.
Can be done without breaching official secrets act.
Now this is a clever idea!
I'm surprised that other cable manufacturers haven't started to produce charging only cables for travel, with a new cable standard, maybe in Day Glo green. Hope he has a patent though this seems unlikely.
'Getting in early' with Bitcoins?
I think he has missed the boat, Governments around the world are begining to put curbs on or take ownership of it.
Don't believe for one minute he was serious about the attempt, maybe just looking for the publicity, I mean would a sane person attempt a crossing just at the time when the weather is becoming so changeable across the Atlantic?
With such a tiny open boat it would have been almost suicide.
Nokia, once the leaders made mistakes years ago, holding on to Symbian for too long then bottling it with Meego and failing to jump on the Android band wagon.
Now part of he 'empire' innovation will be stifled by the needs of MS.
Independence turned to dependence. How sad this has been for the maker of the worlds most iconic phone ever, the 8210.
I wonder who authorised the videos?
That usually comes from the top doesn't it, so a parting shot from Ballmer perhaps, before he starts his new job as a warm up act to Michael McIntyre?
Be realistic, there is a bit of give and take here....
The Government Gives, Google Takes...
You could buy a very decent compact camera for a lot less.
