Re: As a Moto G user
Jump ship if you want as a Samsung 3 mini users all I can do is wish you well. Hopefully you will continue to get OS updates, rather than having your phone left to rot after 1 generation, unless you want to root the sucker.
Apple at least update until your hardware is not physical possible of running the system,
Re: Reg unit?
A Game of Thrones DVD season 1 Box set is 5 DVD's at 4.7GB each so that 23.5GB.
I propose 1GoT as a suitable acronym

Good god almighty...
I see the putin aplogists are out in force , does Russia fund all these people to scour online forums to play the kremlin line??
The russian back scum went and shot down a passenger airliner, if you think it was the Ukrianians or some CIA plot or better yet THE JEWS , you are a complete and utter fuckwit and you need to catch BAD AIDS!
Re: how long before...
Yeah yeah you say it, and then they get in and your still here leeching off the rest of us! go now, will pay your fare!
Re: I want to be the first to get an iPhone 6.
More likely someone who wants a phone, that still gets operating system updates after 1 year! pissed off Samsung s3 mini user! :(
Re: Somewhere along the line PEOPLE get involved
Well that's just brilliant, mean while the less than top brains and working class , will be working aero hours contracts due to all manufacturing being outsourced to China, but hey at least some of their 1% can come over here to buy up houses and take what few good paying jobs remain ..genius!¬
Re: Google writes its own laws now...
Since when is there a law saying US citizens can't go to Cuba?

Re: going forward...
Never has a post summed up a company so much, I'm thinking of creating some more accounts just to upvote you more!
Re: Reg's standard for this?
upvote for "Giggidybits" genius
@JDX grow up!
Really simple way of dealing with this....
Company A makes £600 million in Country A, but says it has to pay £599 million in royalties to Company A(1) in Luxemburg.
You change the law so that Royalties paid to a company outside of the country , cost 40% of what's paid.
What this does is make paying corporation tax the cheaper option, if they don't like it they can shut up shop, I'm sure there will be local and international companies willing to service that market!

Gamepads are for girls
It's just like my office

Yes I'm Lying :'(
Complete sausagefest :(
Yes your right..
When making his caculations about lost profit, he obviously meant you...YOU COMPLETE AND UTTER F**KWIT
Well if I could sell my crap in a box for $100's I'd do it as well! Apple sell good stuff and make more money than creosote, as other posters have pointed out , if this analyst was so smart he would create a start up and earn than 67Billion himself!
Time for an upgrade!
Re: Classic end-of-financial-year splurge
This!! the most insane thing ever, means that we never make any savings!
What you said makes no sense because you are using percentages, if your company makes a 100Billion in revenue , then 2% is a damn sight more than 2% of say a million.
Plus just because they don't spend as much percentage wise as their competitors does not mean they are doing no R&D, apple only has a few products so therefore can concentrate their resouces.
Re: Apple Disappointing
Are you a gibbering idiot? Name me one quarter ONE where Apple has made a loss on its iPhone's, Jesus they can't even make enough of them to sell.
While Apple can look forward to another recording breaking Billion dollar net [profit quarter, some no mark sitting in his mothers basement can go on about how they have lost their mojo! :S
Re: Oh please thise same tired old crap...
Yes because stating a fact is a troll, Tell me why does the S3 look nothing like the S2 and the S4 look like the S3. Hey and the S3 has rounded shoulders and everything....cretin!
Oh please thise same tired old crap...
There were touch screen phones before the iPhone but they were crap. The phone that Samsung was building for Google was a blackberry rip off until the iPhone came along.
What Samsung did was make a phone that looked very very similar to the iPhone, even with similar packaging, to get those people who would have liked an iPhone but could not have afforded it.
The Samsung S2 was the same as those Chinese knockoff you see on eBay, with the court action they knew that they could not keep on doing that stunt which is why the Samsung s3 looks so different , yet the iPhone 4 and 5 are the same just with different dimensions.
And wait for legions of morons going on about rounded corners etc, deliberately missing the point , that it was a design patent, and part of one at that to stop people just making a copycat of their phone.
Apple has not sued Sony or Microsoft or Nokia, for their phones, because they had the good grace to come up with their own damn designs!
As for Apple being envious of the Android market, considering Apple makes more money than anyone in the purely mobile arena and by an immense margin at that ... its laughable
Re: I pity South Korea
I'm sorry but what drugs are you on? The reason why the SK invites the Yanks in is that if the North thought the Americans would not back em, they'd be charging across the DMZ within a week.
Don't remember South Korea kidnapping people to help them teach their spies, this is the worse kind of Liberal whataboutery
April the 1St people! LOL well played El Reg!
Re: Seems strange...
Whether they have backdoor or not, allowing China to put in the communications equipment that our defense and infrastructure rely on is the height of stupidity!
Somethings you don't do , even if they can do it cheaper!
Re: PAF 18 years out-of-date
And as the government runs this country, they can take it back for a £1 and if anyone does not like it, they can argue the toss with the Army, sorted!
Simply thing to do is find the person who is linked to the account receiving the money...remove their genitalia..problem solved
Re: I was reminded of this earlier today ...
Yeah sure you have an iPhone..iof the Maps app was so bad you would have gone to Android, why lie on an internet forum?? And if you reckon that putting in Victoria station give you slone square , your lying through your teeth!
Well if I had gone back 10 years in time..
I would have bought apple shares when they were worth jack, invested in google and picked every 80 Lotto winning combo... 20-20 hindsight is just that ..hindsight!
If your going to post AC
Then at least have the guts to point out , why what he has said is rubbish!
Did anyone read the article??
Although they do the same thing, according to apple they do it in a different way7, which is where they have a problem. The chinese are saying that even though they do it a different way , its still infringing!
Re: Foxconn are in big trouble then...
Did they apply for a patent for it in the US? if no... then...STFU!
Re: Prior art easier than you thought
How the F**K did you get 7 Thumbs up! HOW THE FLYING F**k IS A BOOK PRIOR ART!!
Wouldn't it be better to lay them on there sides with a fan blowing though one end, think like loading cartridges, that way you cut down the vertical size, and the flow from the fans at one end, plus the fans from each intervening Pro will add to the air flow.
The force was strong with this one... RIP
You can always be sure....
That whenever a story showing Apple making sales , that some android peabrain will come along , saying how if you go android you can get cheaper blah blah blah There's a reason why Apple makes billions a year and your commenting on a story about them from your mothers basement!
If you listen closely...
You can hear Steve Jobs laughing his ass off..
what could have been accomplished if he had of paid his fair share in tax rather than making sure he paid as little as possible
Re: maybe it's the idiot to ipad ratio..
What utter rubbish, how exactly do android use their stuff? in their pockets without taking them out?
Just accept it, your stuff is crap and not even robbers want to nick em!
Same old suspects every single damn time..
I'm sorry but IBM, Accenture, Capita G$S , hitachi, EDS etc should be banned from all government contracts ,
jesus we could get better results from using trained monkeys, how they keep getting work , with failure after failure on their books is a national scandal!
Re: If anything..
All you've really shown in that post is that you would get an iPhone if you could afford it. I'd love a Rolls Royce for £10 but that aren't happening either, but guess what I can afford the ford focus which does the same thing but does not look as good.
If Apple phone was rubbish they would have simple gone out of business by now, but they haven't and they continue to make money hand over fist, but you have other cheaper choices to make and constantly whining on about how Apple doesn't make cheaper phones is a waste of your energy and time, just ignore them.
Come on Reg that's got to be a meme in the making
Apple are a niche player and heading towards extinction according to all the haters, so why do you care so much what they do??
