Spending Limit + Theft
Currently using a contact-less card you are limited to a max of £20 per transaction and after so many transactions you are asked to use chip and pin. Does the iPhone have a similar method to stop someone clearing out your bank account if they take your phone?
Also it is the banks that are responsible for any dodgy payments taken with contactless cards, who is responsible when it comes to buying with the phone?
First the moon, now the sun?! Next you are going to be telling me we are actually on the back on a huge turtle.
Re: Windows control app support still missing?
I am going to take a shot in the dark here and assume they mean Windows for tablets and phones.
It is not how they get them across the bridge, but where they put them to get them across the bridge... how many inches what that 6+ again?!
Re: Class Action
A few months?! Several have been borked after a few days.
Re: Yeah, and....
So you know that spam filter for getting rid of all that rubbish that comes in... it is reading your PRIVATE emails!!!!!111one!
"Essentially, stop showing its own products in a different way than standard results. Stop showing a map from Google Maps when searching for an address. Stop inserting a box of reviews from Google Hotel Finder when searching for "Hotel in London". Stop showing results from Google Flights when searching for "flight from LA to SF". Stop displaying results from Google Shopping with pictures."
But I enjoy them features, that is one of the reasons I use Google because it gives all of the information I want without the hassle.
"The day Google started displaying unit conversions when searching for "10 miles in km", a dozen websites lost 90% of their traffic. "
Well perhaps they should have come up with a better business plan. How much revenue did HMV loose when Spotify came about? You don't see Spotify being fined for having a better business plan.
Re: Kies? Does anyone actually use that?
... as for that unblievably kludged mess of garbage they call "Kies", the less said the better ...
What in the world is Kies?!
Re: Slightly impressed...
That is very true. Makes me think about how many phones I have had, get water damaged! I am glad they are starting to make phones more resistant to water and not just carry on the trend of putting a load of moisture sensors inside so they wouldn't need to fix them.
I can happily say I will never buy one, but I am impressed by how well it survived the dunking.
Re: "What will Apple reveal tomorrow"
Re: unlimited login attempts/client certificates
In that case have a 30 minute time out, 3 wrong attempts you need to wait 30 minutes. 720 passwords can then be tried in a day, which makes it infeasible. As for becoming a denial-of-service path, I would rather that than my nude pictures get released, and then my password changed which becomes a denial-of-service path.
Re: uninstalled it.
Bugger me! You were actually able to uninstall iTunes?! I thought it was something not even a full reinstall would remove.
Shame self-incrimination doesn't apply here. What happened to the right to remain silent?
Re: @Steve Evans
I imagine with a firework display like that the people operating them will be sat far away in a tin shed pressing a button.
Re: Doesnt look like equality to me.
Perhaps it could be split into two different categories "douchbags" and "normal people"?
Re: wearable technology
Think of the camera shake too! You don't sit perfectly still through a film, every little movement will be picked up resulting in the feeling of sea sickness by the time you finished watching the film back.
Re: No sympathy.
I think a better analogy would be:
"If this were a case of an axe murderer, where the police barged into his home without a warrant and happened to find the axe, in his hands, with the victim on the floor, the case would have not been thrown out.
Re: Nice try Cookie..
No bugs here! They are just undocumented features... yes that is what they are!
NAS sounds alot like...
NAS sounds alot like... NSA... oh no they are watching us!
That would be unspecified electronics, possibly with some sensors.
You can get plenty of waterproof jackets for sub £30 that are waterproof. You will sweat like you are wearing a blackbag but will still be waterproof.
typical non-Apple product
As apposed to a typical Apple product then. It works if you are holding it correctly and you don't want to know where you are going.
Can I report this as abuse? I believe you are abusing my mind by coming out with such tosh.
"will have minimum speeds of at least 2Mbps."
I think they read the contract wrong, when they say a minimum speed what they really mean is "UP TO" 2Mbps. I bet they also wrote unlimited in there somewhere too...
Re: Bitcoin cash machine
No no no. They are very different to one-arm bandits... you are much more likely to get your money back in the casino!
Will it have round corners?

Re: When Big Brother Is After You
"Who will protect you when we come and steal your home and possessions "
I think the better version of that would be:
Who will protect you when we come and made a copy of your home and possessions...
I will still have my home and possessions, and you will have a duplicate (which in my opinion is not a bad idea as I like my home and possessions).
Not the porn!!! If you take away the porn there won't be anything left on the interwebs!
>> Icon well... just because.
Time to start carrying cash again, or having bank accounts with two separate banks.
"strict", "moderate" and "light".
"The one-time national telco has applied different levels of control to its system: "strict", "moderate" and "light". "
How about a none at all option?
All I want for Christmas is a VPN connection outside of blighty.
Re: Misplaced Anger Much? Not Dell's Fault here!
I think a more appropriate example would be:
It's like saying you should of known that an alcoholic would drive drunk so you should of never sold the car to the person that has given them the car keys.
Unless someone in Syria filled in the Warranty Card saying "Yes we use your equipment here for evil, mwhahaha" etc how was Dell to even know that their kit was being shipped to Syria?
Re: Too much average coffee
You should try "The Plan" coffee shop in Morgan Arcade in Cardiff.
I have had some of the best coffee in there. There was also another small coffee shop in Sheffield (suburbs) that was also pretty spectacular.
2 x 1p sweets?
But with most DVD copies the original was purchased legally. I am just as likaly to get a copy from a charity shop as I am from a torrent site.
By definition it is not theft, just copywrite infringment.
"No, I mean thieves. If a book/film/whatever is on sale at £10 and you steal it; you just stopped the creators getting their cut of that £10. If you copy it - it's the same thing. (And I'll type this slowly so that you can keep up). THE. CREATOR. DOES. NOT. GET. PAID."
What if I go and buy the book/film/whatever from a charity shop? Second hand. The creator doesn't get paid then, is that also wrong? Or what if I buy a physical item and pass it onto a friend, they then pass it onto someone else, and so forth, is that also wrong?

Wouldn't that consisute as littering?

Re: They jest surely
Or even better, get them to use the word "Google". That what way they won't be able to search for it without brining the who internets down!
Re: Passing off
If Spotify where creating the play list themselves and advertising it I would agree. However they are not.
"He also has a Leeds landline number, but reports that as this is shared only with his mum and best friend it doesn't get any cold calls. "
Sounds like a great plan, and he would have answered the calls anyway.
Nothing to see here...
they are just holding it wrong.

Re: Yes, but...
Well the man is trying to "bang" the iPhone...
"There will be 100,000,000 by 2035"
"100 million that is a lot!"
"Oh did I say 100 million, put put the decimal point in the wrong place"
"No... the OTHER place"
"Ohh, 100, that is more like it!"
Always seemed odd...
To be it always seemed odd to protect all of your important passwords with one single password. You might as well use the same password for everything as you can unlocked the passwords with just one password. Or am I missing something here?

Re: I think Google just managed to exclude their products and services ...
You give the UK government way too much credit.
If I was the ISP I would do exactly the same, they are instructed by the law to do so. I would also leave them blocked until I was told otherwise courts.
Just doing what I am told governor
To the lawyers!
How long until Apple apply for an injunction against this?
Would you really put it past them to do that?
