Siri, I'm a big James Bond fan
Show me a route suited to the car he drove in The Spy Who Loved Me:
You're disputing it wrong
That is all.
You *must* have Win 8 for development?
That's amazingly stupid, even for them. Now, not only will more Symbian handsets than Microsofts continue to be sold as we just saw in the last quarter, but more fucking Symbian apps will be released for them too.
Re: Beware flying chairs in Redmond
I find the Android unit of currency useful when discussing Microsofts handset sales per quarter.
3.5 million = By Wednesday lunchtime.
Yup, the Nexus 4 looks awesome
I'm going to get one of those - Awesome price too!
Re: Fake enthusiasm
@Drewc I just re-read what I wrote and - yes it came across as horrible. There was supposed to be a joke in there but this one went wrong. Sorry.
Re: Out of the box...
(Taking the unprecedented step of replying to myself)
Speaking of market share, here we see Android 75%, and iOS on 14.9%, so microsoft are welcome to whatever dregs blackberry etc leave them from the remaining 10%:
Re: Out of the box...
Market share for both is indistinguishable from floor noise, so if you can't measure it you can't say what the competition level is.

It's captain claimed to be on a burning platform, but it was a huge lie his true masters had told him to parrot.
Re: Citation provided @dogged
No shit you shitted not, Sherlock.
And its amazing how much that word crops up when discussing anything microsoft.
Re: Citation provided
Technically, the word for what you just did to those AC microsoft shills is "pwned", and I'll certainly raise my glass to that :-)
Re: Tetra 3 slower than Intel Core i5
Microsoft shits on its customers then its partners and this is news, how?
Re: Highly respected online forum????
I've always tried my best here to make it so.
Just one more thing
Want to buy an iPhone in mexico? Think different:
For when the cloud (Google, Linux based) and mobile (Android, Linux based) converge for a snack, its time to check out who's left to laugh loudest.
Since that's how history will record it.
"We couldn't get anyone to like them either"
That Death Star thing..
The difference being, of course, is they are not alone. Samsung makes the new Nexus 10. After these figures are out, do you think the other manufacturers are going to let the market slip away and do nothing?
Re: Meh - 2010 specs - no thanks.
Perhaps that's why these phones are bright yellow as favoured by simpletons - to wake you up after yawning at their specs?

Paris, for even she could spot the obvious pattern here:
Re: In the other corner is poor old HTC
Who'd have thought it? If only there were some kind of record of how things worked out for anyone who "teamed up" with Microsoft. Oh, wait...
Re: Guess the fairness of it depends on the situation
"Siri - what's the fastest way out of this place?"
Re: Gartner's predictions are meaningless
Speaking of stunning insights regarding the iPhone from a visionary tech guru:
It might be informative, or it might not be. The only thing not in doubt is how fucked microsoft are.
Higher quality at a lower price than all their competition - gosh this sounds like an advert rather than a statement of fact.
Re: It gets worse
@AC 14:01 Yes, that shows handsomely microsoft are up to their old tricks again.
They think their new turd has been polished with marketing money just enough so no-one can tell what a stinker it is. As this story shows, it will catch out a few gullibles before word gets out, but at least they back tracked their original evil stance and offer refunds.
With all this "new Windows devices don't run Windows software" confusion, and fewer apps than Babbages mark 1 analytical engine, it looks destined to never trouble the needle of market share in the same way WP8 doesn't.
Re: It gets worse
The gift that just keeps on giving. And no-one outside the microsoft shill bubble has seen it yet - wait till the real reviews from real users start.
Think fucking different.
Re: Nonexistent Nexus?
Does it come with a file?
This guy said a 7" tablet doesn't work - guess he meant Apple would release one over, err, his dead body.
Florian Mueller is to law what Jimmy Saville is to child welfare
WTF do idle journalists keep regurgitating what he spoonfeeds them?
It has to be said...
Presumably this would have automatically been rolled out to iOS, whereas instead their users get to marvel at wibbly wobbly bridges showing routes which were removed in 1957:
Re: when life gives you lemons, make Lemon Meringue Pie
It's hard to imagine where Google would be now if, when Apple launched the iPhone, Jobs hadn't been so greedy and been forced to deal with the only carrier which would accept his terms - AT&T, the worst of the lot. Just a little more openness at the time and no matter what Google and Android did they could never have caught up. Even one more carrier would have been enough. Apple survived Antennagate etc virtually unscathed - it had the market to lose. Instead, it *forced* its competitors to develop an alternative, which is why we are where we are today, with their sheep fleecing antics still giving them the most revenue (whilst that lasts), yet seeing Android outsell them 4:1 last quarter.
Re: Oh my sides!
Samsung: You're apologising wrong. Do it again.
Apple: Pretty please, sorry.
Samsung: On one leg.
Apple (standing on one leg): Pretty please, sorry.
Samsung: Your'e only saying that because you have to. Say it like you mean it.
Apple: Oh, we really mean it now. We won't do it again - honest. Pretty pretty please.
Samsung: Now give me your dinner money.
Re: That attitude, protestors said, mean we have entered an "age of mockery".
Behead those who say Islam is violent.
There's one part of Sharia law those who want it to the UK keep very,very quiet about. I can't think why - it's not like it's not going to be welcomed with open arms by the indigenous population, and reported fairly and rationally by our noble elite journalists. I am referring, of course, to the public floggings for drunkenness.
Re: Here a Troll, there a Troll, everywhere a Troll Troll@ Bob Vistakin
Eeek! That "dorothy" observation really hit a nerve!
Re: Here a Troll, there a Troll, everywhere a Troll Troll
Whereas all Apple fans are the true friends of dorothy - the obvious "elephant in the room" reason prettiness matters above such trivia as dodgy antennas, comedy maps and - what's this latest one? - oh yes, purple photos.
What could possible go wrong? The recent ongoing comedy of them ditching an essential component in their toys because they could do better wasn't anything to worry about, no siree.
And as their customers all chant each day: "Nanny knows best."
"Siri - modern cities such as London are often described as a concrete jungle for good reason. Do you know a secret place there where I can escape to and enjoy nature's greenery at its best?"
Agreed - people avoid Microsoft when they have a choice
However, Blamer can take solace from this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2Wx230gYJw
"Microsoft has an uphill battle, one that consumers are unlikely to win for it."
And the rest of the tech world gets their revenge for being dumped on by Microsoft for decades by doing the same back to them when it matters most.
Karma karma karma karma Chameleon - they come and goooo, they come and goooooo.
How to win friends and influence people
Is this the same Oracle that's desperate for developers now their dithering CEO has U turned once again and for the moment reckons their crappy cloud offering is something other than a late desperate "me too" version of everyone else's, with it's only distinguishing feature being it costing ten times more?
Could have been a contender

Good luck with WP8 phones if Win 8 tanks
Customer: "What's the advantage of a WP8 phone?"
Sales:"It's the same desktop as the new Windows 8".
Apple has peaked
And still no-one is listening. Yes, they make the most money from those who prefer style over substance. Yes, it made them the most valuable co in the world. But all these duds just go to show there's only 1 place to go from there, and the proof is in the cracks starting to appear in the sales figures.
