Just wait till $ky catch up with this...
No doubt in 2023 they will be proudly trumpeting their new 4TB Sky+ box... at a bargain price of £599.
So it's true...
Apple is finally going down the tubes. Yet I'll still be accused of scaremongering, or compared to Michael Dell. Whatever, keep drinking the Kool-Aid, it'll run out eventually.
Re: @unwarranted triumphalism
Well, if that's the standard of argument I can expect from the Palestinian lobby, I guess I'll just give up now.
Re: @unwarranted triumphalism
Yes, dead civilians are just a point of view I suppose.
Re: Getting the popcorn ready for the arrival of the shrill shills
I didn't know it was Google's place to recognise terrorists.
People with responsibilities, that's who. We don't all live in your hippie utopia.
I'd definitely like to see this productionised. Unlike some people who shall remain nameless, I think it will be in far less than 10 years.
Just think of it - electric cars with 1,000-mile ranges with small underfloor batteries.
And then the Vulture Central Oil Industry Defence Brigade will arrive - 'USELESS! The ONLY conceivable use for any vehicle requires 2,000 miles between recharges! This will NEVER be any good, scrap the whole idea NOW.'
The fossil fuel and nuclear lobbies have arranged for their paid shills to come here and share their wisdom. How else would I find out that solar energy is completely useless?
'Unmediated' data pulled from the sensor
What is that, exactly?
A lot of people here seem to be investing effort in 'proving' that renewables don't / can't work.
I wonder why that is.
How about 0%
Is that a more sensible figure...?

'Co-opted'...? In the same way that Xmas was a Christian festival co-opted by pagans to celebrate the Winter Solstice, yes.
Re: Acceptable Bigotry
Very good, I've caught you in a lie and you come back with... that. Give yourself a pat on the back, Sparky.
Re: Acceptable Bigotry
So now I've 'formed an opinion', huh? I thought I was supposed to be trolling?
Keep changing your story, it's hilarious.
Re: Acceptable Bigotry
Since you think I'm trolling, why did you choose to take one of my words and make such a big deal out of it?
Incidentally, the entire 1st page of Google's search results for John Sweeney are about his little tantrum. So I guess that's worked out really well for him.
Not until they're 75 they don't.
Seems it is perfectly acceptable against conservatives and the religious here at Vulture Central. Notwithstanding your attempt to defend him, John Sweeney's unprovoked and childish tantrum tells me everything I need to know about him, and the sinister organisation he works for. What's your *real* agenda, El Reg, and why won't you reveal what it is?
Are you afraid of something? What are your crimes?
Re: Stupid little boy
All he needs to do is run them over with his car. £35 fine, even if he kills them. 'It was a tragic accident', he could say in his defence.
A common theme...
With photographers of all stripes is that they're awfully keen to stick their cameras in where they're not welcome.
Hence rules like this.
Perhaps he's better at believing that Republicans will act like they're actual functional adults than seeing them for what they are.
The problem is not HP...
Apple is fundamentally to blame for their ruthless supply-chain cost cutting which has engendered a culture of abuse and exploitation among the suppliers. Unfortunately HP, an innocent party, has unknowingly been caught up in this.
It seems that HP are making genuine efforts to resolve this unfortunate state of affairs in their own supply chain and should be given credit for it. Meanwhile we have fine words and very little action from Apple, who are the real offenders here.
You sound upset. Don't take things personally, it's just a job, defending Apple on the Internet.
Anyway, I'll take 'Luddite' if you don't mind. Unless Apple have a patent on that as well.
Yes, I will fault them all I like. They knew this was going on, and now they've been found out, they're SHOCKED.
Enjoy your slave-labour products, iTards. Do they come with the salty tang of childrens' tears?
Apple will never amount to anything and is obviously going down the drain. The best thing to do is break it up and give the money back to the shareholders.
Who do you remind me of...?
Ah yes. Spence from Ronin.
Case for the defence?
Do we get to hear that as well? Or is El Reg going to continue in the fine tradition of legal reporting and 'forget' to report it?
Re: harden the **** up
'Hasn't he also said on numerous occasions that if a cyclist is in front of him on the road and didn't get out the way he'd run them over?'
No, actually he never said that, nice try though.
Re: Now now children
I won't join in the racism-fest and make any ill-advised jokes about Mexico, or Mexican people. That would be unwise.
But I should perhaps point out that Apple is THE WORST COMPANY EVER and they are the ONLY client of notorious child-labour enthusiasts Foxconn, and are also the only corporation to undertake ethically questionable acts in the pursuit of profit, such as aggressive lawsuits, lying, polluting, etc. I wish to make it plain that NO OTHER corporation would EVER consider such DESPICABLE acts, and the fact that Apple has done things like this makes them WORSE THAN HITLER, or something.
Also, their products are the WORST EVER. Did you know, for example, that no iPod can play MP3s, or that no iPhone is capable of making or receiving phone calls? Their so-called general-purpose computing products are no better. The cheapest one is over £3 million, and that doesn't even include a CPU! That's ANOTHER £5 million, at the very least. To get a computer of equivalent performance from anyone else it will cost you about 5p, so there's no reason EVER to choose an Apple product.
(I just thought I'd sum up everything relevant to Apple in one post, so you can all get back to your racism).
The gun nuts have come out to play.
Is it just me
Or are all the Bond movies really juvenile?
Re: Odd system
Many people think that until it happens to them.
Re: Coveted item
I'm an iHater too, but that was uncalled for.
Hate for Apple?
I haven't even started.
It's not a popularity contest. Wake up, sheeple.
Re: Being safe from prosecution
The TV Licensing people do not agree with your interpretation. Please read http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one/topics/what-if-a-tv-licence-is-not-needed-top12/ paying particular attention to the paragraph highlighted in yellow.
If they're doing something right...
How many terrorists have they caught?
Re: Anti-terror hotline
Maybe you'll be dismissing a terrorist attack in the same glib manner. Or maybe not.
Re: "Study shows soap operas trigger aggression in women"
Every time I hear 'that theme' I think of Bill Bailey's lyrics:
'Everyone is going to die
We're all going to die
In a variety of different ways...'
Seems much more appropriate than the original...
