And Google's already doing it by datamining students' Chromebooks!

Re: What are you gibbering on about?
Anytime an Android Anything is found to be doing something unfavourable, the goal post must be moved back to Apple. For justice.
"high fructose phone"
donut, eclair, jellybean...
A Sammy blows up on someone and the highest rated posts are Apple disses. Reg Readers, don't ever change...
Why doesn't Larry and Steve fly him over in the luxury of a hammock-bedecked 767? After all, Google embodies Freedom Truth Liberty and Freedom.
And besides, we all know that Google is incapable of malfeasance in perpetuity.
"I would assume it would have some little light that popped on or something so people knew it was recording?"
Didn't you hear? It's totally rootable. So, no.
The Reg's Apple Trolling was more effective when Anna was writing.
The Register somehow finds one more reason to do a story mentioning Psion.
I'm confused; I've just read an article about Apple on The Register that was not peppered with insults to the company and it's customers, that simply discussed the situation at hand.
The Chaebol Defense Alliance had better get downvoting...
Time for a new handle?

Shouldn't you be busy clicking on a few more ads?
Re: No. Let's call it "Tracking your every move,"
In the eyes of this website's "journalists" and myriad Fandroids, Google is incapable of malfeasance in perpetuity, because Android.

Re: So they are trying the Google WiFi defence
Exactly. Only Google is allowed to have 'accidental caches'.
Another fine piece of non-journalism from the Chaebol Defence Alliance's premier cheerleader.
Re: More Leach tripe.
Why would you expect a Google Greenshirt to comprehend that difference?
To do so would be to copy Apple, so... probably.
And is that 72.5% in China the full Android experience, feeding precious data back to Mountain View, or are forked versions included, restricted by what data the Great Firewall allows out?
The WSJ has removed the 65 million figure from the article and BGR is reporting how the math doesn't add up... but don't expect any corrections from El Reg. Some Reg authors just can't help jumping on a turgid Apple story and riding it till the juice is gone.
At least someone cares about upgrading older Android handsets!
Good to see that all those millions that Google pours into lobbying DC—far beyond what Microsoft or Apple spend—is getting them results!
Re: Hmm, typical Leach article
Downvotes FOR JUSTICE

Oh—that's where they buried it, not on the frontpage. Yeah I missed it there.
Re: What are you smoking.
It's funny because when I mentioned the author's name in a previous post, the mods rejected it.
El Reg hasn't even covered the Samasung SIII/Note malware vulnerability yet but runs another riff on last week's iPhone 5 China launch.

Suppose El Reg is going to run the story that the same Australian cops are now giving warning about Google Maps too?
Re: Why kill Apple here
If anyone other than Apple thought of it, then yes, a large portion of El Reg's readership would deem it innovative. But since Apple did, said demo will see it as EVIL.
It's funny how many hoops I had to jump through to quell the tide of promoted Android marketing that arrived daily in my Google+ feed.... when I bothered to check it.
Re: Why is the first post about Apple?
Because for many people, Samsung is Android. They're making the most money off it, have the most cachet, and thus, any criticism of the chaebol is by extension an attack on Android.
Re: I shudder to think how much abuse Apple would have taken if they had done this
Still riding Antennagate?
Re: February 2014??
This is as ridiculous as Apple saying they couldn't post the UK website apology in less than two weeks, but of course The Register remains uncritical of Google Twaddle.
Must be a slow trolling day for the Reg if it needs to get it's Apple-baiting headlines from this guy.
"Piecyk offered little insight into the manufacturing process, but did say that he believes supply and demand for the flagship phone is "in balance" and improving."
More quality reporting from the Reg and it's Apple-obsessed writers.
Re: Not news
Google and Samsung can do no wrong!
So Google wants all that malware in the Play store?
Like the Nexus 4?
Notice how skepticism-free the Reg article on Asus' vague Nexus 7 sales figures was?
Marathon included in the list? Respect.
It's getting rather comical how The Reg needs to put APPLE in every headline to encourage clickthrough.
Does the app occasionally show popup insults to the users who have made the egregious mistake of being iSheep, or is that left to the Reg's stories?

Re: Patently obvious
So why don't current Android handsets have that feature?
This handset clearly shows that the touch paradigm ushered in by the iPhone was in fact an obvious, universal approach, because trackball.
