They appear to be trying to offset the anticipated release the of new iOS and OSX.
I wonder who will win the media battle?
What? So we still use dinosaur bones today?
Re: Sounds like my ex girlfriend is on the loose again
If you'd have been nicer to her she probably wouldn't have bitten!
Just wait till all the ISP's initiate filters to prevent access to porn.....
Bet there will be some anomalies then!
He was lucky he wasn't shot down in a hail of bullets as a terrorist suspect or jailed for 1000 years for crimes against the state.
Will now be known as 'Lucky Bojczak'.
Re: The first question to ask before making any move
Send all the hairdressers, telephone sanitisers and advertising executives.
Bored senseless and no way of getting back?
It would be interesting if this was something that could get off the ground, but it won't.
Re: New iPhone?
It is except now your thumb will feel as if it is caressing a nipple.
Or should I say, a tit?
Can't wait to see the litigation start over these new domains.
Monitor 1.6% of the Internet but records everything.
'I have no issue with the NSA monitoring traffic that the legal system has deemed they can capture. No secret courts are required.'
I wouldn't trust the US 'legal system' as far as I could throw it.
Has it been used to steal Bitcoin balances or is this a vulnerability and possibility?
Re: No, no, no
Concentrate on the Pro?
Why? You might as well get yourself a laptop and enjoy longer battery life.
It's as flawed as the RT but in different ways.
Nothing to hide? Then you have nothing to fear!
Won't stop them from kicking the door in though will it?
So long as no one watches the video while driving?
Ok so who is fiddling the voting?
Everyone has an equal number of upvotes to down votes?
Re: Wait a second @Don Jefe
The pedantic grammar police have arrived, downvoted because it was probably the spell checker at fault on his iPad.
Re: Specs make the iPad Mini look REALLY crap.
Yes and maybe the next ipad mini will make the Nexus look dated. The longest race in the world and the lead changes day by day, the end is not even in sight.
As to bench marks, they ALL cheat. The bottom line is this,
does your tablet work smoothly?
does your tablet freeze?
does your tablet require regular re-booting?
does your tablet require an anti-virus program?
does the anti-virus slow it down?
does it take ages to get hold of the newest operating system?
does the manufacturer withdraw support for older models?
If you answer YES to the majority of the questions you know what you need to buy to end your frustration.
Re: 20$ for a mono headset?
$20 for a mono headset, top quality and produced in China for less than a $1 a throw, the cheapest they could find, what an offer, what a bargain, what a deal. Not.
Under the guise of safety
Many parents are under the misapprehension that giving a young child a phone is a matter of safety.
Instead they give phones to impressionable children with little maturity and risk exposing them to an unsupervised web experience at a too young age and unsupervised phone.
Safety can be a very abstract term.
Instead of looking at it as Android v Apple v Blackberry v Windows it should be broken down into Manufacturer v Manufacturer v Manufacturer v Manufacturer.
Comparing manufacturers is more relevant economically than comparing OS's as a manufacturer may go bust but an operating system won't.
Re: Surely not?
The UK Government is the master of botched ethically transgressed IT project failures that never apportion blame to anyone.
You Aussies are just beginners at it.
Just like pubs that begin to offer a free bottle of wine with every meal, then buy one get one free, then two meals and a drink for £10, then two meals and a starter and a drink for £8.
The following week it's closed.
It's the slippery slope of failure.
Discounts don't necessarily mean that you are getting a good deal.
Nepotism, pure and simple.
Pride comes before a........ Ooops
Oh dear, remember the saying 'Pride Comes Before A Fall'?
Talk about setting yourself up.
They bring out a better phone than the S4 and yet they can't attract enough of the market.
We live in a mad world.
The first film was and is the definitive Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi were natural follow ons but didn't add to the original which was a stand alone film. The studios were just cashing in.
The prequels on the other hand are just over CGI'd teen film crap. Fully of pretty people, no real story line which relied on special effects to sell themselves. My biggest gripe is the technology in these films, the sci-fi tech is more complex that the original 3 films. It is as though time has gone backwards.
I hope the New Star Wars stays honest, no over the top CGI, no pretty teen clones, tech that appears to belong to the particular time.
Make it a bit more adult, appeal to those that saw the original rather than the tweenies the prequels were aimed at.
I'd settle for a signal where I live.
Just like Samsung, they cheat on benchmarks, don't believe everything you read. They just haven't been caught yet, it took years for Armstrong to be outed as a drug cheat, but time will catch up with them.
Re: No suprises here. Move along please...@Iglethal
Sounds like you are talking about the PC market.
Re: Large corproations fudge their numbers?
So the bottom line is this,
You're not getting the performance you are paying for
You're not getting the battery life you have been promised
Nothing new really is there
Enterprising if nothing else
So now they have explained how to identify a genuine Apple Charger, the fake producers can finally get it right.
Still metal is a great conductor of electricity, stick to a polycarbonate shell and you will be fine.
China owns most of the American debt, by default they own America so it is really a moot point about them spying.
The NSA had too much dirt on those that were going to vote against them. 24 hours before the vote a number of brown envelopes were delivered to these Politicians with a note that said,
'Do you really want this to become public?'
When the film is released America will once again believe the Great Jobs was a great charitable man who looked after his staff, was the nicest person you could hope to meet and who listened to others and took advice.
What a nice man they will say when they leave the cinema, what a shame his life was cut short, I never knew he invented the Internet, mobile phone, computer, keyboard....... Shoes, God....... What an amazing guy!
I mean, the US film industry distorts pretty much every historical fact there is.
They will shut him up when they find the dirt on him after a bit of secret surveillance.
He will tow the party line then.
Cash in my pocket is much better than 'fairyland' currency in the cloud.
Caveat emptor, quia ignorare non debuit quod jus alienum emit.
And no one filmed the incident?
What is the world coming to?
An aircraft designed by the UK, built under licence by the US. UK aircraft then scrapped and sold off to the US by our Government as a cost cutting exercise. The tragedy is not the bombs but the tech we give away for others to exploit.
Just like the jet engine the UK gave to USSR which found its way into the MIG15.
Politicians have a lot to answer for and they never learn because they seem to do a lot of it.
This is a new 'low' even for El Reg, where's the tech story?
If you don't happen to be white
I'd stear clear if your ethnicity is anything but white, you regularly wrap a towel on your head after a shower, wear a long dressing gown, are in a same sex relationship, vote liberal, wear sandals, have a beard, read the Guardian, drive a foreign car.....
There is probably a 'symbolic' ordinance for that but you are as likely to get shot for it as you would knocking on a door and asking for directions in the dark.
Realistically, making apologies for what had been done in the distant past, years ago is symptomatic of the age we live in.
Let's apologise for........
Let's apologise for slavery
Let's apologise for crimes in the past that are no longer crimes
Let's apologise for Nagasaki and Hiroshima
Let's apologise for the British Empire
Let's apologise for the Aboriginies
Let's apologise for the American Indians
Let's Apologise for the bombing of Dresden
Let's, let's, let's.......
Instead of this faux apology thing how about we look back on History discuss what was done, understand why these things happened and that they were 'incidents, acts and products of their time' then celebrate that we have come a long way since. Apologising for the distant past serves no purpose.
That when one crashes a survivor will be able to use his mobile phone to call the emergency services!
Re: Electrocuted? I'm taking no chances
Now this could be a 'jump on the band wagon to get compensation' ploy....
I am taking no chances and have put a rubber case on my phone, just in case!
Malware of course
Not fashion, it's just that they can't get their malware on Apple phones, so it makes sense to change to Android, the malware writers dream.
One door closes
One door closes and another door opens.
Of course they will say this
Who would be able to prove that they didn't?
As it is covered by the official secrets act we will just have to believe them...............
It was only water in his helmet and not a weeping rash!
Since I don't use Tumblr I don't really care, I care even less about other people's Tumblrs and have no urge to go sniffing them out.
I have better things to do, beer please.
