Well, nothing else for it. I'll just have to get one of those bright yellow WP8 models then.
If he's responsible for Win8, he's damaged microsoft far more than any mere blogger could, so you get a thumbs up from me for making that crystal clear.
WTF? I use Bob every day. IE for Bob is hands down the fastest, easiest and most reliable way to surf the net, and IE for Kin the best for mobile bar none. Android users can only weep at the news you never hear of viruses for that handset. Anyway, just because *you* don't like them, doesn't mean everyone doesn't. Why, I was just given a lecture here recently after mentioning WP8 market share when the ms astroturfers told me market share is no measure of quality, quoting the Sun as an example. Unlike the rapidly-ending decades of desktop OS dominance they enjoyed, for some reason.
And it's only going to get better - Microsoft Bob Cloud Enterprise 1.0 (Professional) is due early next year - we'll see who's laughing then!
Re: $25 Android pad coming soon...
"Under* estimates, of course.
@AC 11:58 I know here they both went, too. Here's the autotune version for a little variety: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_x9sAyYz-U
Re: Not surprising
Who'd have thought it - these app less, overpriced tablets running experimental, untested software which come apart at the seams after less than a weeks use aren't doing too well. Still, at least the WP8 sales figures are looking good. Aren't they?
Open in action
Would $25 even cover the license fee of any alternative?
Re: beat me to it
Its the second actually, and Steorn were the first when it comes to taking the piss too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steorn
Re: Falling apart at the seams?
Fallapartgate has a nice ring to it, and it's great to see this picking up so much press now:
Re: just pull an apple...
Seems this is exactly what they are doing now with the launch of Microsoft Reality Distortion Field 1.0. See it in action here, where they claim their lower resolution display gives a higher resolution than a, err, higher resolution one:
Falling apart at the seams?
Oh, you're talking about their *products* this time.
There was a similar thing about the Dominos staff picking their noses on pizzas, yet they somehow did a masterful job of erasing that and you can hardly find a mention of it now. I did, though:
Agreed - if he ignored the judges instructions then by definition this was a mistrial.
Re: Can't go on forever
Correct - and it would all be laughable had this nasty combination of corruption and stupidity not just cost Samsung $1bn.
Re: Can't go on forever
The patent system is preventing evil idea stealers from such innovations as chucking a stick for your dog to fetch back too: http://www.google.com/patents/US6360693
Re: It's called a DESIGN patent for a reason...
No need - just refer to its video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ8pQVDyaLo
@Kristian Do these "many people in the world" include Microsofts former mobile "partners"?
Careful - you're liable to get a lecture on your life's experiences for saying stuff like that round here.
No, and the fact they aren't present shows the software is half done as they claim to be coming later. What you get now is this half-assed fail, cynically rushed out in time for Christmas in the bizarre hope someone will not mind being forced to use ee and their comedy tariffs.
It's a prefect example of exactly what Nokia pre-Microsoft would never release in a million years. Nor need to fake crowds outside stores, or fake photos to market it or flood online forums with shills in order to astroturf interest etc.
With such a great camera why fake the pictures then?

Better stock up on ammo - there's truckloads more messengers need shooting:

@Greg J Preece
I'll take your two words and raise you Widgets and NFC.
And don't forget 4.2's multi user capabilities. The Cupertino photocopiers no doubt started with the usual mad scramble when that was announced and might hit iOS next year - all nice and ready for Apple to sue everyone for it the year after. And they'll once again use the best courts money can buy, natch.
Re: So much evidence Apple has lost the plot
One more thing:
Re: Judge Koh won't throw this out...
Tis now but a short leap before kids are taught Apple invented the mobile phone itself. Once that lie is also repeated enough, as these current rounded corner ones are, we'll see some Texan court they bought starting to sue competitors over their "speaking from one hand held device into another remote one" innovation.
AA@ 15:33 Well said sir - those who came up with the concept first should jolly well be able to stop anyone copying it forever more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_O_dOMG3oo
So much evidence Apple has lost the plot
Look beyond these desperate acts to see form another angle what the actual market thinks, and from the jobs point of view it's certainly thinking different:
And the public *still* hasn't really seen Win 8
The shitstorm when it does will be in a whole different league to Vista.
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.
Re: you could drive the Torrey Canyon through the wriggle room
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?
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...
- Twitter: La la la, we have not heard of any NUDE JLaw, Upton SELFIES
- China: You, Microsoft. Office-Windows 'compatibility'. You have 20 days to explain
- Apple to devs: NO slurping users' HEALTH for sale to Dark Powers
- Is that a 64-bit ARM Warrior in your pocket? No, it's MIPS64
- Apple 'fesses up: Rejected from the App Store, dev? THIS is why
