Apple's SNEAKY plan: COPY ANDROID. Hello iPhone 6, Watch

Re: so bitter

You mistake create a new feature set for creating a new market. The first is about selling something - the second is about getting people to buy it.

Share prices always drop after Apple events. Analysts don't think like customers.

so bitter

Lots of comments hating on Apple for once again opening up a market of IT as desirable consumer goods, thereby expending the IT jobs market for the sort of people who read the Reg.

Thanks Apple - your customers help pay my mortgage

Why Apple had to craft a pocket-busting 5.5in Plus-sized iPhone 6 (thank LG, Samsung etc)

Re: Serious people don't want a watch

There's nothing says 'wanker' quite so well as a bling watch. Unless it's a bling fountain pen.

Here's a little tip to sales people: when you shoot your cuffs to show off your watch, and slap your Mont Blanc down on the table, you're sending a message that your software is overpriced

Re: That's the trouble u c?

Also naff all to do with Civil Service. It's political marketing from ministers. If I were a civil servant wanting to do central planning, I'd be rolling out a national grid of fat comms pipes - but that fails as political marketing in 2 ways: it would cost real money; it would be useful beyond the current party's time in office

I cant reconcile these two statements by the author

The CJEU ruling acknowledged that authors have “a legitimate interest in ensuring that the work protected by copyright is not associated with such a message.”

What the court seemed concerned about in the current case was the image of people represented in the parody – not the rights of the author.

Re: Windows Phone and Blackberry owners feel unjustifiably smug

Re: Prepare for the Government to be sued...

To out it another way, this is a table of which phones best hold their resale value - so sales of the nickable phones will probably rocket

Heterodyne

Maybe you could have ceiling transducers emitting a fixed ultrasonic frequency and a central unit beaming audio modulated ultrasonics at the fixed transducers. The resulting beat frequencies would appear to originate from the ceiling transducers, which could be powered from the lighting fixtures

It's not hard to start a bank now

Licenses are much more easily acquitted, and banking engines are, if not exactly commoditised, no longer proprietary secret sauce. The most expensive things you need are Fraud, Regulatory, Compliance and Risk teams - a potential outsourcing market opportunity for someone!

Slightly better than Cloudstore

It has a working search engine. However, they need to stop suppliers clicking every single category for their products, not matter how unrelated. In other words, it will need some curation

The sad thing for Microsoft is ...

It's not as though there's any exclusive tech involved. When they finally get it right, someone else will copy it, only cheaper.

Still, at least they'll manage to sell some copies of Windows 8 that way
