Hold on a second, how is this a humliation ? only 140 Million over? thats fucking fantastic for a government system, labours pissed away 10 Billion and counting on the NHS system , ffs 140! we should be celebrating!
What I love about this site.
Is that when it comes to article on space, there is not of the fanboi baiting that you get with the mobile phone articles etc .
Re: I'd like to think
Apple make more money than anyone else from Smartphones, no one even comes close, and while the others all have to compete with the same operating system, apple has its users all to itself.
I have never seen so much utter rubbish posted in my life lol
@KiwiAndy errrr in terms of smartphone mobiles , Apple makes more profit that all the others combined, since when did Samsungs mobile divion make more than Apples??
What drugs are you on, they are making more money than ever before !
What thins like defence, health care, social services , education the things the keep a country running and therefore allow it to spend money on discount books, those kinds of things? Seriously how stupid are you?
Re: Lies, damn lies, and....
@Squander Two OK obviously your young so I'll explain to you how it goes ...
Starbucks have 4.3 Billion of sales.
They make say 2 Billion profits
They then tell the tax man that their head office, Starbucks Luxembourg, charges them 2.1 billion for use of their IP rights.
Starbucks makes no "profit" in UK.
Starbucks has 750 shops and been in this country for 14 years and never made a "Profit"!!
In the case of Amazon you can be damn sure they made profit on their sales, they just ensured that they also made a lost to another whole owned Amazon company!
Re: Do what we want, not what we say
That tax goes to pay for NHS, Defence etc so suck it up!
Re: Do what we want, not what we say
@Jugernautilus , yes they should and until they do how about you and your mates stop cleaning out the posterior of Amazon and encourage them to treating paying tax as a vital part of being a member of this society!

Your lying! I use visual studio every day for my job and there is no way to use it with a mouse, and a serious amount of ram to do serious work. So you are just plain lying
I reckon someone was coming close to finally revealing PJ's identity
Re: And as for internet sharing...
Why would you do that ? Don't you have a wifi router ? Why are you trying to turn your macbook into a Access point? I assume you are at your home and unless you have an old fashioned router and the macbook is wired into ti , its simpler and safer to buy and access point to connect to the router rather than use your macbook, they cost like £15
Re: I suppose...
Such an obvious and blatant lie lmao, your saying a bunch of strangers just randomly came up to you to comment on how impressed they were with you working on a tablet HAHAHAHA GTFO
Yeah right because that always happens on a plane you lying git!
You got it in one!
The whole "Phone Hacking" thing an be prevented by the police doing their jobs and the MP's not telling them to ignore it!
Those actions were illegal then and are still illegal now!
This is what happens when you allow like Hugh Grant and Coogan , plus MPs to be involved in press regulation!
As somene who worked on the first project...
About time this was done. I was a mere coder and therefore saw firsthand the prescott administere disaster happening.
They should have done it in stages one by one the first time. With the spine being developed and then adding the extra services to it.
Say what you like about oracle, at least they did not use SQL server and Biztalk that Accenture used which was an absolute disaster from start to finish.
The Spine may have been a success, but how much did it cost to build the kind of transactional ssytem used by literally dozens of trading houses around the world!
This report is complete and utter rubbish
The only thing that matters is does Apple continue to make a profit on its iPhone business. How exactly does making a bigger market with less profit and diluting your brand image by selling cheap phones help?
Is BMW going out of business becuase its not selling some cheap junk ass £5 car to indians?
As long as Apple keep their brand, keep producing quality, which people are prepared to pay for, then joining the race to the bottom is for idiots.
Thats why they are Apple with 150 Billion in cash and he's a analysts earning 60K a year if lucky, what a cretin!
Because Apple is a MAJOR customer of Samsung for the manufacturing of the chips for the iPhone and IPad...Jesus wept you are how old?
Re: Jesus there's room for everyone..
No you don't so stop lying
Re: Jesus there's room for everyone..
Jesus there's room for everyone..
Android is the ford and Apple is the BMW , they both will make profits. Fords will sell more, but most people would rather have a BMW if they had the money.
In the end they are aimed at different markets.
Androids are in the race to the bottom , while apple will continue to charge there prices and sell they can make and add to that 144Billion cash pile.
@AC 16:00 GMT
True that, when it copmes to brand recognition you will have to go aways before you pass either coca cola or the Mouse!

Re: Surface RT not a bad product - distribution was the let down
Let me guess ..PS3 owner ? lol
It may not be perfect , but anyone who decides that design decsions should be taken in house and not to outsource all technical knowledge to suppliers is on the right track.
They need this sort of thinking in the MOD as well, becuase BAE is being allowed to shag them roughtly from behind!
Re: Apple fans have short memories
Microsoft wanted to help the continued dominance of office, and to think if they had of bought apple shares , Big G mighyt have been far and away the richest man in the world.
