iWatch 'due November'... Y'all know what time it is? Now you do

Mr.Mischief

Another PR exercise

I wouldnt be surprised if this rumor was started by Apple in the first place.

Get people talking about the product to bridge the time from now till launch.

Say something is going to be delayed.. and then launch on schedule.

SURPRISED fanbois will be throwing their iPhone5 in the nearest dumpster to buy one pronto.

LG drops G3 quad HD Android mobe with FRIGGIN' LASER camera

Mr.Mischief

Get an LG G2 and install a custom ROM

I have a G2, and installed a custom ROM that someone ported from the G3. So I have pretty much the G3's UI, on a G2.

If you have already gotten used to a G2, its a little easier to get used to this one. But if you are coming from a different phone, I can understand the writer's sentiments that it takes some getting used to.

iFixit boss: Apple has 'done everything it can to put repair guys out of business'

Mr.Mischief

Poncy Genius Bar

The missus has an iPhone who's battery was dying. Called Apple and they said that she needed to go to the Genius bar. Got there, and a spotty faced youth barred the way to the bar, fondleslab in hand saying "Welcome, do you have an appointment?"

"No, said the missus"

"Well you need to make one to go to the counter"

"Sure can we make an appointment. What time is available"

"4:30?"

Missus looks at her watch. Time is 4:29.

"Sure"

1 minute later, phone is given in, and 45 minutes and $90 Canadian later, she has a new battery in her phone.

There is another small store outside that does the same thing for $40, while you wait, but the missus believes that the Genius somehow sprinkles magic fairy dust to make it all better. Go figure.

Connecting Gmail to Google+ is SENSELESS, says Digg founder

Mr.Mischief
Boffin

Panties in a twist?

There's a setting in Gmail settings where you can disable this feature. It's a nice to have for those who want it, and if they don't they can turn it off. Even them email from Google notifying me of this update had the link to my Gmail settings so that I could change it.

Methinks the Digg guy is trying to keep his name in the news.

What's Digg anyway?

Ditch your boring iPhone for a hot Android piece, says Google's TOTALLY UNBIASED Eric Schmidt

Re: Android?

Webcam stripper strikes back at vicious 4Chan trolls after year of bullying

Mr.Mischief
Trollface

Re: Go girl ......

Aww.. look at that. Anonymous Coward is angry.. Here... have a downvote.

I'm guessing that after all the porn you watch on your computer, you secretly hate the liberated people out there, while you sit in your little closet and spank your monkey.

Perhaps one day you will move out of your house and won't have to hear how touching yourself makes you a worthless, depraved, sinner like your parents tell you you are.

Samsung's new Galaxy S 4: iPhone assassin or Android also-ran?

Mr.Mischief
Alien

Re: Here's the problem with this thing

Not sure how much barley you can fit in your pocket? But most people with S3's haven't had a problem and with the S4 being slightly smaller, it wont be a problem either.

Perhaps get some normal sized pants instead of that hipster skinny jeans crap?

Yes yes.. phone tracking you and telling everyone what you're looking at or how long you looked away from the screen to check out the girl walking by. More tinfoil required for the hat? And I guess Apple has a stellar record of not spying on their users.

Re: Swappability

And when your iPhone battery does die because you've been watching YouTube videos all day. I guess you're going to just have to get a bunch of lemons and try to generate electricity with them..

And when your data allowance is used up or youre in a foreign country and dont want to pay for a data network or youre in a place with no cell coverage, I guess the iPhone makes a good paperweight.

Samsung Galaxy S 4: A slim stripper with palms hovering over its body

Mr.Mischief

Re: Whelp, here we are

Wow.. comparing "an extra row of icons and wallpapers" to "IR, wallet, video conferencing, gallery creations, a kick ass processor, eye sensors, NFC wallet, more sensors than you can shake a leg at and a bunch of other innovations".

No wonder you post anonymously.

Change the wallpaper in your iPhone to something less green..

First Samsung Galaxy S4 review leak: Stop FONDLING, start FINGERING

Mr.Mischief

Yes.. listen to Youtube to listen to the music.. So the screen stays on wastes battery and YouTube stops when you turn the screen off.

Wouldnt it be easier to just download music to your phone..? Or do you expect them to pander to every cheapskate out there?

US patent office: Nice try Apple, but pinch-to-zoom is NOT a new invention

Mr.Mischief

Oversimplify much?

People buy smartphones for features yes.. they don't buy a phone because it's got "rubberbanding".

Although the fanbois would definitely run to stock up on a new iThing because Apple put it out in an ad.

Nokia HERE iOS maps app review

Mr.Mischief

Re: Lost me at pinch to zoom

Umm, if I have the entire city of london on screen, and I want to zoom into the docklands, I have to constantly keep moving the screen and rezooming in again.

Its a fail. Nuff said.

Google expects Apple to block its not crap iOS maps app

Re: Be reasonable...

Re: Be reasonable...

But at least Google Maps is correct. Methinks one would prefer accuracy over speed anyday.

Besides. "Speed" is a relative term. At what? Signal fix? Downloading the maps?

Google maps has to use your browser's connection. The iOS 6 maps app is native. Can you really blame Google maps for Safari's shortcomings?

Re: Be reasonable...

3G?

Mine works well enough on 3G, and with 3G+ or 4G, its pretty instantaneous.

I can understand some people heading to a remote location but compare the "number of car trips where there is a valid cell connection" vs "number of car trips in locations without a cell connection"

Do all the fanbois post as ACs..?

Re: No, not exactly (Doublefail)

Actually they are right. I am not going to spend on a separate nav system when I have one in my phone which works well enough.

As a guy, I know most times where I am headed, its only the occasional time when I am on the road when I need to look up an address or "street view" something to see what the building I am looking for looks like.

Also, if I am headed to an event or something (say a Meetup group event), I can click on the address in my Meetup app and it shows me where the location is on maps. Doing that with a nav system would require me to take down the address, manually put it in the GPS and then look it up?

Car GPS sales are steadily going down, its because people have cellphones which perform the same function.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review

Mr.Mischief
FAIL

It wont sell like an iPhone because it isnt an iPhone.

Fanbois don't really compare things properly.

A fair comparison would be:

Compare all the iPhone sales numbers vs All the Android phones sold by Samsung.

or

You can't compare the sales of the entire production of one company vs just one product line of another.

iPhone to account for half of US economy by 2030 - projection

Mr.Mischief
Alert

But of course

With the advent of NFC, iphone currency will become the next best thing. A loaf of bread will cost 3 iPhones, a car 20,000 iPhones.

The US economy long since bankrupt will have employers paying employees in iPhones and Jesus will come back and collect iPhones in church.

Could happen
