"You'll see a lot more of this as they try to catch up with Android by attempting to copy"

So you're saying that Apple copied this from Android? Where's your evidence fanboi?

I think you'll find "Their adverts for their computers" , as you describe them, were ADVERTS FOR THEIR COMPUTERS. And you call Apple users stupid!

Re: How to tell if an ad was worth the money spent...

Not sure I agree with that. I remember the Go Compare adverts but they don't make me want to use them. I don't agree with mindless brand loyalty so selling a brand doesn't work for me either. The barista advert was very clever but this doesn't come close.

Apple appeals judge's decision to boot out its Moto patent suit

Re: @Trevor_Pott

"you can easily argue the "fairness" and "non-discriminatory" nature of a % versus a fixed amount. It all depends on which biases and preconceptions you approach the argument with."

Surely you shouldn't have biases or preconceptions if it's supposed to be "fair and non discriminatory"?

"Interesting that the Fanbois are throwing up Samsung as a comparison - they obviously recognise who the competition is, especially since Samsung outsold Apple."

Samsung is the top selling smartphone brand. What's the point of comparing to HTC or Motorola?

How's that auto correction working out for you? I'm guessing it's a Samsung device you're using since it doesn't understand the word PATENT.

Must be a slow news day. Tomorrow we'll have the same story about the Google Play store I guess. It's binary data occupying a portion of your hard disk. If you've got a virus scanner it'll pick it up, if you don't you wouldn't be any the wiser.

"LBE Privacy Guard is a useful tool to tame use of over-eager permissions in Android applications. Rooting is required."

Not only rooting, you also need to trust that LBE Privacy Guard isn't doing anything malicious and that the version of LBE Privacy Guard you have is a proper one.

That might be so, but you can't include the Aces and Wildfires for the sake of making up the numbers to say that Android is number one then ignore them when it comes to customer satisfaction and only include the S2s and Sensations.

To paraphrase you

This is the Reg, kiddo, not Feministe -- "I think it's shameful" isn't going to shut anyone up around here. Instead, it's going to make us wonder how it is that you get through life if you can't deal with low-level shit like this without whining about it.

For Christ's sake, either go away and complain somewhere that isn't stuffed full of unsympathetic bastards like me, or grow some hair on your balls and shoot back. Spitting pablum all over your bib impresses no one

Re: Re: It cannot be!

"Apple doesn't get the source code for the app, nor do they check the behaviour of every function call the app makes. Apps are approved as long as they conform to the official APIs and - from the user's perspective - follow the rules."

Maybe not but it would be trivial to have a tool that flagged access to certain APIs (contacts and location for a start) and if the use is not appropriate request clarification from the developer. I assumed this is what Apple did. If not what are they doing for their money?
