Do not adjust your set: Hats off to Apple, you struggle to shift iPhones 'cos you're oddly ethical


I have sold countless pre-owned Android phones over the years and can assure you they certainly do have considerably more than your ridiculous 'zero resale value' claim, even those more than 2 years old. It's just another myth that people quote without any actual real world experience.

Brit boffins build 'quantum compass'... say goodbye to those old GPS gizmos, possibly


Re: It's not a compass.

Oh, I guess they haven't thought about all that, I guess they should have consulted Joe Public first as clearly you know better than these well educated scientists. Back to the drawing board it is then.

5.1 update sends Apple's Watch 4 bling spinning into an Infinite Loop of reboot cycles


Re: Wait for it...

I wonder what Apple classify as a 'small' number. The statement they released smacks of their usual playing down of a serious issue.

So, about that Google tax on Android makers in the EU – report pegs it at up to $40 per phone

You're comparing apples to oranges. The app store is essential for mobile platforms.

Shortages, price rises, recession: Tech industry preps for hard Brexit


Re: And all we can do...

Yes. Because democracy is democracy. The ridiculous example you chose however is a far cry from the 17.5 million people that voted to leave.

This whole "keep voting until we get the result we want" idea is NOT democratic. So rather than keep trying to throttle the process, we should use that energy to make plans for our future without the EU.

Waving placards, signing petitions and venting on social media is not going to change a thing. Brexit is happening and you need to get used to that fact.
