That can't be. The leading lights of this forum assured us it will NEVER sell. And that nobody will wear a watch anymore.

I'm still indifferent, and we own six Macs. First is a Fools game. If I ever get one, I'll wait six months and get one cheap off Craigslist or a pawnshop. I still don't see the draw, but apparently I'm in the minority.

US Senate to probe the Obama-Google love-in

Dana W

They are getting so desperate, they are looking at an election in a couple of years, and most of their top criticisms are based on Fox News fantasies. they NEED a scandal desperately. Their polls are not great, they are NOT carrying the new youth vote at all, and they won't have the benefit they had last time of a large number of seats in VERY gerrymandered districts.

They will dig and dig and dig. A scandal will be made of something because after six years of dragging the US economy to a stop and crying about Obama, finger pointing and scandal mongering is all they can do.

So far their campaign for 2016 is a platform of "stop the gays" and no matter how you feel about that subject, its not a presidential platform for people who want to win.

Force your hand: Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display

I replace my Macbook Pro every three years. Thanks to car payments this time it will be five years. Nice thing about owning a Macbook Pro, not only will it still be working, but someone will STILL want to buy it.

No, really, the $17,000 Apple Watch IS all about getting your leg over

Dana W

Most Apple watches will cost about as much as a decent iPod. All this is is clickbait. Personally, right now I'm wearing a very nice 1974 Seiko. Next year I'll still be wearing a real watch, How hard is it to fish your phone out of your pocket/purse?

Enough with the $17,000 watch. How many of those are there again? Less than ten? The way the tech press spins this, you would think that is what an Apple watch actually costs.

Apple: Those security holes we fixed last week? You're going to need to repatch

Dana W

Re: what about other patches?

I use both and they really are NOT looking similar. Are you sure you are not thinking of Apple's abandoned child, Launchpad? I don't know anybody who uses that silly thing. And cheapass watch? One thing you can be certain of is it will have superb build quality, and no I'm not getting one. Have you seen some of the terrible cheap Android watches? Or are they only cheap when Its Apple?

IOS for Mac is NOT coming. It just isn't. That has been the scream of trolls since the first iPhone. Mac sales would drop to nothing. It would be idiotic.

Third degree burns on her thighs and genitals.SKIN grafts. Stop protecting McDonalds. They were super heating the coffee so it would stay hot for carry out. It was going out boiling.

The Woman with the McDonald's coffee had third degree burns on her thighs and genitals, she had to have multiple skin grafts. That is not "sue Happy" that was justice. Google it, photos of the skin grafts are online........

How many Watches will Apple flog? 20, er, 18.5, no, five, wait, 50 million!

Dana W
Meh

Not for this Apple fan.

I"m an Apple fan, lots of Apple gear, but I own about two dozen, mechanical, and electro-mechanical (non Quartz) wrist watches, from thirty to one hundred years of age, I just can't see retiring them to wear a tinier screen for my iPhone on my wrist. Maybe I'm old fashioned, I don't know, but I can get any number of beautiful, classic watches for $350+ that will certainly outlive me, and could easily go on for a century. And one that will be obsolete in 3 years just does not cut it in comparison.

Apple CEO: Fandroids are BINNING Android in favour of IPHONES

Re: IOS to Android ratio

It measures iOS to Android ownership on the REGISTER nothing else. And the user base here is very much NOT the general public.

iOS is popular with people who want it to just work, and don't want to have to run an antivirus on their PHONE!

I've seen people go to Android from iOS, They get talked into it by salesmen, then they come back. iOS has better user retention. Android is fine for geeks. ts like Linux, its nice if you know how to use it, and you can maintain it. But people like their phones the way they like their TVs, turn it on and USE it. My Last Android device had to have its boot-loader unlocked and be rootkitted to give me that non "walled garden" experience It is supposed to be so famous far.

Yeah, Windows, the Secure, safe operating system! REALLY! No one else need apply! Seriously, does anybody have a company issued device they don't HATE? With rare exemption they are Dell fleet junk, or at best, a bulky, dull, and heavy, (But at least reliable) Lenovo.

BITE that APPLE if you want to escape the Android garden, Microsoft

Dana W

More iOS users are willing to actually PAY for apps. In so many app reviews on the Google play store, the PAID version gets slammed for having more features than the free one, because Ghod forbid they have to sped a dollar on an app. Developers are apparently supposed to be paid in "satisfaction"

You'll get sick of that iPad. And guess who'll be waiting? Big daddy Linux...

Dana W

I am a Mac user and multiple Mac owner. I was loving Linux, and planned on replacing my Macbook Pro with a Lenovo when Gnome 3 came along and pretty much Killed Linux for me. Canonical's newfound love of lock down left me cold. Linux wants to give me the amazing workspace customization I had in the early 2000's I'll change my mind. I'll head right back to Linux when Unity is buried in the same pit with Metro.

'However, what may be pining for the fjords in future is traditional open desktop hardware. If the mass consumer and office drone market is satisfied by "converged devices", then eventually, there simply won't be any traditional "desktop" hardware on the market to buy, except perhaps at eye watering specialist prices'

With the blessing of content providers, with all of our media licensed, monitored, and in the cloud so the swell folks in marketing call tell us once and for all what we like this year.

Feds finger Norks in Sony hack, Obama asks: HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE KOREA?

Re: Over thinking the situation

I've seen the movie, its horrible and silly. If NK hadn't gotten its panties in a bunch, it would have blown over in a few weeks.

NK sees everything released in the US as being released by the US government. .Because in NK, EVERYTHING is released by the government. They don't understand this silly film has nothing to do with The US government or its foreign policy. Its weak sophomoric humor for stoners. No more, no less.

Reg man confesses: I took my wife out to choose a laptop for Xmas. NOOOO

Re: Snobbery bollocks

Seriously? Benchmark one of these $50 tablets up against a top end Samsung or Apple tablet. If you want a bad screen, a plastic case and a cheap and dated "or mystery" processor, by all means buy one from Tesco/Walmart (insert your local junk store here) Be ready for no support, an antique version of Android, and quite often not even access to the Google play store. MY Android Tablet plays Portal. I'm betting yours does not. You get what you pay for.

What is it about the misers here who will ignore CPU and build quality just to pat themselves on the back for avoiding a brand name?

Re: The best urban transport

We call those bicyclists the little pants patrol. They think that riding a bicycle makes them morally superior, and that its the way EVERYBODY should get around. They think they will always be 25 and in good health. And that everybody should live in inner city hipster flats.

My city has built them the second best bike trails in the US. Including cross city greenways, and parallel bicycle roadways. Do you think they RIDE on them? No, the law says they have a RIGHT to a full lane of road, and thy won't have it any other way. There is a little monument near my apartment to a man who git killed on his bicycle on the street. Literally four feet away from a bicycle only ROAD.

These people are a nasty, pretentious menace to the road.

Tim Cook: The classic iPod HAD TO DIE, and this is WHY

This post has been deleted by a moderator

Dana W

Not stopping now, even if Apple is.

I have three iPods. A 160 thick, and a 160 thin, the one I use the most though is a 2004 black and red U2 model. I replaced the battery, and dumped the 20 Gig hard drive for a 64 Gig compact flash. I want to load the seventh Gen with 256 of flash as well. I like classic iPods, and as long as I can get the battery, I will NEVER stop using them.

BONEHEAD FANBOIS encamp outside Apple Stores

Dana W

I will never understand these fools, and my house is full of Apple stuff. I like the iPhone, I really do, but I'll get my next iPhone by registered mail, next year when my contract for this one runs out. Just like the last one.

Android or Apple, its a PHONE. Some people are just stupid. If you have time to wait in front of a store for days or weeks, you have worse issues than the need for a new phone.

Apple's ONE LESS THING: the iPod Classic disappears

Dana W

What?

What are you talking about? Of course iTunes lets you store your music library on your computer!

Dana W

No cloud please.

People go on about the glories of the cloud. Cloud music is great if you are in your teens and only want the flavor of the day, but if you have even reasonably eclectic tastes, a lot of what you listen to is just NOT there. It is not about convenience for us, it is about making sure every track out there is licensed, and accounted for. And if you would rather listen to Klaus Nomi than Niki Minaj, well as far as they are concerned you are simply out of luck.

I own three iPods, two 160's, and the one I use the most, a Gen 4 U2 iPod I converted to flash. Its very easy to open a dead or dying iPod, upgrade the battery, and convert to flash. My 20 gig is now a 64 gig, (soon to be 128 gig) and when I do the 160 Classics I plan on making them into 256 gigs. There is a lot to be said for a player than can hold all my important music, and 11 years of my favorite show.

My biggest fear is one day plugging them into iTunes and being told they are no longer supported.

Apple: iOS7 dayglo Barbie makeover is UNFINISHED - report

It does not matter what it looks like. No matter WHAT it looks like the screaming Android trolltards here will piss and whine about it.

They were ready to hang it before the first screenshot. So why bother arguing with them?

Arguing with trolls is wasted effort. And it only took me 20 years of the internet, and ten of BBSes (and an extra four or WoW somewhere in between) before that to figure it out. I guess I'm a slow learner.
