Forgive me, father, for I have used an ad-blocker on news websites...

EPurpl3

I am a web designer and I create flashy animated ads. No remorse at all for using ad blocker, I already offer so much to those greedy bastards who use them :DDDD

WhatsApp is to hand your phone number to Facebook

Photographer hassled by Port of Tyne for filming a sign on a wall

EPurpl3

The worst article I have ever read. Any photographer have to deal with all kind of situations daily, some much worst than this. This article is totally unfit in a tech website or on any other online newspaper because is not of public interest, this belong on the personal blog of a failed photographer who can't deal with a simple situation.

Panasonic Toughbooks are so tough they can smoke

Re: To anyone embarking on a Video Game / 3D art career...

I have switched from 3d max to Blender long time ago. Blender is great and not only for 3d, is a great video editing and motion graphics software.

I can turn Yahoo! around claims hedge fund manager

EPurpl3

She tried everything to make Yahoo a giant again, cool parties, lobby, publicity, scandals, hype, new logo, etc. What she has missed is to make Yahoo useful again for the users. Boosting the number of ads without boosting the number of new users is the worst policy possible. Really, if I travel to another country I can't even authenticate. WTF, that's totally not user friendly and is not logical...

7 million Apple Watches just buried the competition – Canalys

EPurpl3

Apple Pay is my favourite thing with it, so useful when using London Underground , ands it's quicker than using traditional plastic

You should buy a bike or a car, it's quicker than anything

Found it handy answering calls when my hands are messy like when cooking in the kitchen

And how do you hold the phone with messy hands after you answer?

Add on the fact I can now keep track of how active I am too, I'd feel lost without an Apple Watch now

Keep track of how active you are? Lost without an Apple Watch? Alzheimer? :d

Cyber racketeers convicted over $1bn international conspiracy

EPurpl3

Any American citizen had to pay taxes regardless of in which country he made the profit. That's why many Americans who work in other countries drop the American nationality.

I don't know if this is the case here, though.

Acer: Our sales promos left us nursing operating losses

EPurpl3

Wow, the best laptop I had was a Acer, I am sorry to hear this, just planning to buy a new Acer next year.

China's Jade Rabbit moon rover might have DIED in the NIGHT after 'abnormality'

Oh man, this is beautiful, makes me want to cry, lol

US can't get its hands on Navy hacker Victor Faur, aka SirVic

EPurpl3

“Surely under US law it's perfectly legal to hack foreigners computers? And therefore vice-versa, so no case to answer.“

Don't forget to mention that even spying innocent people via Facebook and Google by NSA is legal and moral for them

Apple fanbois make it 'official', hook up with Internet of Fridges Things

AMD's 'Revolution' will be televised ... if its CPU-GPU frankenchip Kaveri is a hit

EPurpl3

Re: Dull and slow

“And for general usage could you tell the difference?“

Everything uses GPU this days so I guess that there will be an improvement. Even on surfing on internet, browsers support hardware acceleration, YouTube too. I am very optimistic regarding this new design but I bet that Apple has already patented this :))

Re: Any chance they can...

"...do the same thing for my Chromebook?"

Did you prayed for that? Ha ha ha ha ha ha

EPurpl3

Re: Interesting concept.

"Is Ubuntu good on phones? I'm not sure what advantages one would get by booting Ubuntu instead of Android."

Gimp will be great on a tablet. Inkscape too, especially if you will be able to use the touch as a graphical tablet.

Apple won't bag HUMUNGOUS 4G deal... 'cos China HATES plastic iPhone 5C – analyst

Buying iPhones from the Chinese manufacture for 1 dollar and selling it back for a shit load of money, is this the Chinese economic plan?

Samsung poaches Apple store guru for US retail push

EPurpl3

Re: Will They Ever Learn?

"Samsung and the other Android makers are going to end up selling their stuff for less and less as there is otherwise little for them to compete on while all the time they sign up customers to Google. Samsungs position is precarious as people change their phones every 18-24 months and number 1 now could change in just a year or two and all the time Apple sell more and more phones with every new release - yes their share of the market has dropped but that is because the market has grown so dramatically as now every phone is a smartphone."

Ha ha, kids this days, they are so gullible and naive. What part of "Apple's market share is shrinking every day" don't you understand?. Even Microsoft Nokia isI catching up.

EPurpl3

“Don't know about over there, but back in the 80's and 90's (when Sony was cool), there were Sony stores everywhere here. Didn't stop all of the big retail chains from selling and promoting Sony.“

Sony is still cool, I am using Samsung s3 now buy my next phone will be Sony. Just mentioning.

Zuck you! Facebook introduces 'Dislike' button... in Messenger

That Google ARM love-in: They want it for their own s*** and they don't want Bing having it

EPurpl3

“If they're going to make their own CPUs, perhaps they could add search-related operations in hardware (or with specialized hardware assist) --- Boyer-Moore search might be amenable to this, for example (just the "search" stage of it, not the table preparation stage).“

...or ads.

Samsung loses against Apple ... this time in SOUTH KOREA

EPurpl3

Re: Perhaps the consensus on this website is wrong?

"Apple uses design and specialized manufacturing to separate its products from the more generic choices in the market. Maybe this is why they do not find copys to be so amusing."

What? So you are biased and full of c***. Ios7 for example is a Android copy so how does that design separates them from the others? The exterior design is not original also but the court had to decide if the hardware and they way was ment to work are a copy.

EPurpl3

Re: Now there's a surprise (not)

“Actually, Apple were one of the pioneers in portable computing as we know it today, along with NEC, Toshiba and IBM. But y'know, haters like you feel that you must go and preach the history of computing according to Microsoft/Stallman [delete as applicable] where by Apple innovated nothing. The actual facts of the matter couldn't be further from your version of the truth“

Toshiba was, Apple's portable PC was a unusable piece of junk with a 2 tone car battery.
