Re: No sir, don't like it
Kirk never actually died. In the movie, Scotty was the last one to see him before he got torn from the ship and transported into the ribbon. Later, in a TV episode of The Next Generation, Picard and the crew discover a ship that's crash-landed on a planet. No-one is in the ship but they discover a pattern in the transport buffer. When they re-energise, Scotty appears having taken the drastic step of hiding in a transport stream to survive the crash. His first words to his rescuers are "Did Jim Kirk send you?". This implies that at some point, between the movie and that episode, he had seen Kirk alive.
With friends like these........
Bit of a p*sser for the Register - that's two companies you're going to have to keep having a pop at now because of this thing you have about Apple. Won't be long before you have no friends - well apart from the Android desperados you can huddle in the corner with whilst having a rant at the more popular kids on the block.
Dead Steve Jobs indeed ;)
As someone who's worked for HMRC for a number of years, I can give you another factor to throw into the mix:
The black market in smuggled fags is massive and getting bigger. It means that many are smoking these things, not paying tax on them and undoubtedly using the health service to sort out their subsequent smoking related illnesses. According to our research, based on what we think does get through after we look at our stats on successful busts, this is now significantly contributing to smoking related drains on the NHS.
It's also what bugs me in arguments over the effect of smoking in society when the pro-cig people say their fag taxes easily cover the cost of NHS treatments.
Re: Uneducated toss.
Are you sure the Z3 is the best?:
The Telegraph reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6 Plus: ‘It’s peerless’
TechCrunch reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6: ‘The best smartphone available’
USA Today’s Baig reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6/Plus: ‘Smartphone stars’
Walt Mossberg reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6: ‘The best smartphone on the market’
The Wall Street Journal reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6: ‘The best smartphone you can buy’
These guys certainly don't agree with you
Re: Hello El Reg
Couldn't agree more. I get that The Reg and a large portion of it's readers have no time for Jobs but do you have to keep using this 'dead' thing whenever you refer to him in headlines? It just makes it sound like you're revelling in the death of a bloke who passed away due to cancer. Distasteful, unfunny and it does you no credit.
You can go back in time!
Run a copy of Gridlee on an iPad.
Get classic games ROMS from Rom-World.
Use a copy of iFunBox to install the ROMs into Gridlee.
Invest in an Ion iCade games cabinet: http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/icade
Relive your youth!
I've had an absolute blast with my set-up running games that I haven't played in years. Well worth the cash I've lashed out.
One for the physicists
So you can't transmit info faster than light...
Here's a thought.
Just for argument's sake, let's assume it's not impossible for me to get my hands on a piece of wire that's so long that it spans a million light years between two points in space.
And, again for arguments sake, let's say that it's so strong that there's no give or elasticity in it. Now, if I'm on one end and my friend's on the other and we have a morse code type of signalling that we've agreed, wouldn't it be possible for one of us to pull on the wire and the other to instantly feel the wire being pulled so allowing us to put our signalling system in operation and transmit info faster than the speed of light?
or are there other laws of physics that wouldn't allow this system to work?
Spamgourmet.com does it for me. Create on-the-fly email addresses at the time you're registering and set the number of forwardings in the the new email address itself. And because you can create as many different addresses as you want, you can tell by what you allow to subsequently get forwarded to you exactly who's been a sod and passed your details on.
Re: This is a decade that will live in history..
Steve Webb's account is accurate. Microsoft didn't save Apple. They only invested a few million for a deal based on mutual benefits. The only retard here is yourself for plucking a figure of billions out of mid air and convincing yourself it's true.
Re: This is a decade that will live in history..
Biggest load of tosh I've heard in ages. 'End of Apple'? Give me a break - I've been hearing that crap for the last 20 years. Remember how Microsoft would eventually do for Apple? And yet who's the biggest tech company in the work by market cap right now? That's right - Apple. They're worth more than Samsung, Microsoft, Google and any of the rest.
Apple know how to survive and prosper after any setback and they'll get over this one. They make such high margins on their kit they can easily cut into them a bit to absorb any price increase from Shamsung. Hell, even if they don't do that, then the 'fanbois' will still be more than happy to pay a few extra bucks to get their fix. And that's only up to the point when Apple do away with Sammy as a supplier completely. Do you really think Cook and Co haven't already played out this little scenario and come up with a long term strategy?
As for an 'unpleasant RIM style tailspin', RIM are a dead company walking because they took their eye of the ball and started turning out crap hardware and software that nobody wants and not because someone increased their chip costs by a few quid.
Man dies of cancer. Reg creates focal point for people to take piss.
I don't usually mind the biting satire of the I.T. world but why not let the man rest in peace? Surely the Reg and it's Jobs hating readers have had their money's worth by now. Anna/Reg - the man was a son, a husband and a father. Can't you at least lay off out of resect for those he's left behind? How would you feel if it was a relative of yours that had died in sad circumstances and was then held up to ridicule every time some 'smart young thing' fancied a bit of a laugh?
Let it go.
Got it on 3
Bought my new 4S iPhone on contract from Three. I mentioned to the salesman that it'd be handy if I could tether my work iMac through the phone for net surfing. He offered me the option as a bolt on to my package for an extra 5 quid a month. I twisted so he said he'd have a word with his manager. He came back and offered me the bolt on for an extra 2 quid a month. I still twisted over paying 48 quid over the contract length for something I wasn't that bothered about.
Anyway, he said in that case, I'd have to go without. When I got home and started mucking about with the phone I was amazed to find I could activate the wifi hotspot feature. It definitely isn't mentioned in my £25pm month plan so I have no idea how I've got the feature. Not complaining as it's turned out to be more useful than I thought but I'd be most peed off if I'd handed over the extra £5pm and then discovered I could tether for nothing anyway.
