Crikey! So all the men in your office are gay then?

How to destroy a brand-new Samsung laptop: Boot Linux on it

Peter Storm

How true. It's the difference between perceived quality and actual quality.

People buy French cars because they think they're good, when in actual fact they're total junk.

Well if I were you, I wouldn't buy one then eh?

Fans' loyalty questioned as iPhone popularity plummets

Peter Storm

I think Apple's glory days may be over unless...

they can come up with something new and different. A "must have" new product. As with the original iPhone or the iPad.

I'm no Apple fanboi and I only got my 3GS a few years ago purely because the Ordinance Survey map app I wanted was only available on iOS at the time. I must say that it has been a really good piece of kit (apart from the battery life).

I only decided to replace it because my daughter's phone was on its last legs and her MP3 player had died.

When I looked at the iPhone 5, I just wasn't that impressed. I mean it looks nice and I'm sure it performs well, but would have cost me a fair bit extra on my contract for doing more or less exactly what my old phone did, just a bit quicker.

In the end I got a 4GS. Hardly any difference in spec from the 5, and less money a month on my contract.

Apple need to be careful and not rest on their laurels. I'm thinking of another fruit based company who had a "must have" mobile product a little while back.

How true.

All these idiots have succeeded in doing is make themselves look like even bigger idiots by kicking up such a bloody fuss about it.

Also, these idiots don't even know their own religion. The Bible never mentions an apple. It's just the fruit of the tree of knowledge.

Those wacky God-botherers , what will they get up to next.

That horrendous iPhone empurplement - you're holding it wrong

Re: I despair, I really do...

Judging by the phone snaps that I've seen from some people, a big splodge of purple would actually improve them no end.

If you go to my business address on street view it shows a house down the road a way. Google maps shows it in someone else's garden.

Re: What's in it for GOOG?

"plenty of people are finding Windows Phone to be a better experience"

Actually I have to agree with you. I don't own a Windows phone myself, and I was a bit sceptical about them, but our company recently bought ten Lumia 800s for the engineers. All the new company phones come to me first to have their emails set up. I must admit I was quite impressed.

Now Apple cuts back on Samsung displays

Peter Storm

Camera, hard drive, radio & TV, for your info. The hard drive and the camera both gave up the ghost just after the warranty ran out. The TV just had really dreadful sound and would reset itself randomly.

Coincidently, I was speaking to someone the other day that was complaining that their digital camera had just died, a few weeks after the guarantee was up. Was it a Samsung" I asked. Yes, he replied. How did you know that?

Peter Storm

Or it could be a quality issue-


Wouldn't surprise me. Everything Samsung I've ever owned has been shit quality.

Re: Please stop.

I'll second that, it's getting bloody irritating.

How about "the maker of knock-off iphones" instead.

Re: Apply this logic to cars

There you go. See what happened there? All those thumbs down for stating actual facts.

Please refrain from this as It's not what the rabid hysterical foaming at the mouth brigade want to read.

Re: SAMSUNG!! apple....

WTF is "floored approach" when it's at home.

And yes, I agree with the last reply. You do seem like a complete idiot.

Peter Storm

"Chances are they are just trading in"

Or perhaps they're buying different phones now they've discovered just how cheap and crappy Samsung phones are.

Re: One thing I know...

I can remember a time long ago, when a celebrity was someone like a great actor or popular author.

Now they are just talentless cretins that are famous for being famous, or have shagged somebody famous.

I think it's more likely that the ever increasing numbers of homo sapiens bred in captivity are having a greater effect on the wildlife population.

Try Advocate for cats. Works great on ours. Frontline just doesn't work any more. It's crap.

Just try googling "frontline doesn't work any more".

Good idea, but for longevity, it'd be a good idea to use a printer that uses pigment inks and not dye based inks.

Re: You're all wrong!

They'll initially launch in Stilton variety, with the Gorgonzola version to follow soon after, but you'll actually have to wait sixth months for it, due to "veining inconsistencies".

Where do I sign up?

I mean, how hard can it be? I've played Eve Online, so I'm all trained up and stuff.

Orange San Diego Intel-based Android phone

Peter Storm

What puts me off Intel as their fucking jingle played at the end of every ad for a product with an Intel chip in it. Makes me feel like lobbing a large heavy object at the TV.

It is only surpassed in awfulness by the vomit inducing "I'm loving it" McDonald's jingle.

Apple desperate to prevent nightmare scenario of iPad in Iranian hands

Peter Storm

Re: The employee was from Iran...

Yes I wondered about that too. So going by their own policy, I'm assuming they wouldn't allow their own employee to buy an Apple product?

Gigapixel camera heralds new world of snoopery

Peter Storm

"Rather than improve the optics of the camera, the researchers focused on the electronics"

Put a poor quality lens on any camera and you'll get crap definition.

Which, looking at those examples, is precisely what they got.
