Re: iPhone 5!!!!!
Wise words indeed, thanks!
Scousers knew this all along
Come on, Ed.
Did Flop introduce this as a hat tip to his master over the pond?
No marks for who wins the Seattle chair throwing equivalent.
Re: a whole hour?
Thank fook you weren't using azure on a leap year.
The just took over a once fine mobile company in Finland to distribute their excrement
But it's ok - no-ones buying it.
Bill Gates to the rescue! His current endeavours are particularly relevant: "At the Reinvent the Toilet fair, hosted at its Seattle campus this week, designs included a lavatory that used microwave energy to turn poo into electricity." Since that's exactly what Nokia is now turning out under Flop, he's already halfway there:
Re: Cockup upon cockup.
"microsoft arnt the only ones that cocked up with certificates"
You forgot "twice": http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/03/azure-leap-year-bug
You jest, but 'tis truly fortunate that the same number shifted in a quarter as Android does by 10.00am every morning is irrelevant enough not to cause any noticable problems.
That is all.
Wheras Apple have just turned into a bunch of Android wannabes!
When it comes to surface, this guy sure thought twice
Re: Efficient killing machines....
People think because they run away from dogs they are inferior. Not true - they are smaller, know they will lose because of that, so do the self-preservation thing. Get a cat and dog of the same size and try it. Smarter, equipped with better weapons and faster. Doberman vs panther, rottweiler vs tiger - that type of thing. Which is the fastest animal on 4 legs? Who is the king of the jungle? Here kitty kitty ...
You're using it wrong.
Re: I've learnt my lesson.
Speaking of Ford, look what happened when they teamed with the beast - their consumer satisfaction ranking went from a fifth to 23rd, all blamed on the MyFord Touch: http://www.dailytech.com/MyFord+Touch+Drop+Kicks+Ford+from+5th+to+23rd+in+JD+Power+IQS+Rankings/article21994.htm
Even Wikipedia struggles to find anything good to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MyFord_Touch
We all saw what a spectacular fail Vista was, to the point no one at microsoft would even say the word out loud. By Christmas, that'll be the same for Metro too - but a hundred times worse.
iOS next? Well, WP7 / WP8 then?
Thought not. These "superior" but closed systems wouldn't even fit on the sdcard.
Anyway, when you try this expect a knock on the door from a desperate microsoft lawyer asking about his five bucks.
And anyway, those figures will be doubled in the market - this guy shows how everyone needs two: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1zxDa3t0fg
Re: Well here is an important milestone...
Re: Is anyone
Here's Steve Jobs explaining how "Good artists copy, great artists steal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW0DUg63lqU - he proudly announces he has "shamelessly stolen great ideas".
Clearly this too would be banned by this judge in America as it too, whilst being of direct relevance to the case, helps Samsung.
The Samsung guy was right to ask "why bother with a trial", but should have added "in the US".
"Half the screen space in Gmail is wasted"
Says one of the assholes who thought it a good idea to waste a quarter of the precious pixels available to a handset with a stupid big black bar running the full length of the WP7 homescreen.
Re: Windows Phone.
In the centre of a darkened room slumps a figure tied to a chair. A TV set in front of him burst into life, and a grotesque white faced puppet with swirls on each cheek appears, accompanied by a deep voice.
"Mr Elop. So far you have played the corporates to your advantage and racked up huge stock options, not caring for anyone's fortune but your own. Your success has been massive - but only when measured in financial terms. Your soul has become horribly corrupted with the filth of your journey to the top of this greasy pole. I now offer you a path to salvation. Before you lies the bruised shell of a once-proud and mighty mobile phone empire. It can be salvaged, should you choose to do so. Or, you could follow the path of evil and attempt to destroy it totally, hoping your masters will reward you in the future for this wanton act of destruction. When this recording ends, you will find yourself on a burning platform which will destroy you completely in 60 seconds. Salvation or destruction - make your choice."
The chains holding the figure to the chair fall away, and the floor around him ignites in a burst of flame...
Re: The IOC can piss right off
FTFY: Why not put the mountains of unsold WP7 phones to good use by giving one to everyone who attends? That way, the text/data usage will drop to zero for the duration of the games as everyone will be too embarrassed to be seen using metro.
Re: Nokia will have a chance in me only if they make it with Android.
So would I - I'd buy a Nokia Android handset in a shot, and no doubt enthusiastically praise it to anyone I could. Whereas in reality, the NoWin partnership is what created me.
I'm just as helpful too - you can also contact me any time on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Re: Stand Aside...
Unfortunately I think it's too late now even for Android to save them. Microsoft raped them, then poisoned the wells so thoroughly that even if they were booted out, there's no way to turn round by recruiting the staff back, spending a fortune reviving their market image etc, before the cash runs out. This mysterious plan must be a firesale before bankruptcy.
Re: How the hell does Ballmer keep his job?
Give the guy a break. He's dong fine in my book - let's hope he stays there for years.
Re: Ye gods.
It's the hypocrisy which stinks the worst - this is almost at Prescott levels. You can absolutely guarantee there will be no problem when Apple bring out a large, flat, black, rectangular device for watching moving pictures on with sound, powered by a remote, which looks and feels identical to the ones Samsung and a zillion others have been selling for the past 10 years.
Re: At a guess...
So long as the spares handy for those, ahem, embarrassing moments when you try IE.
Re: Compare and contrast
I've just ordered a Nexus 7.
That is all.
Re: there can only be one black, rectangular fondle-phone in the world...
You'll have to be clearer than that. Are you referring to the Beatles record label, or the one which came along much later and innovated their name?
Re: Lets hope Apples lawyers rip in as viciously as they did to Android
Heres the FAIL video microsoft tried to censor - catch it quick before they stop showing the same level of competence attempting that as the guy failing so badly in it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTrWPqS4Kxk
