    Too true and very likely to form a large proportion of the still infected. Another group of ignorant users are some single-purpose users of Macs, particularly music producers. I know of one or two who only ever use their Macs to create demos and even full-fledged music productions for artistes, and in spite of the importance of the Mac to their revenues and income, often lag years behind in security updates. I'm talking about people who will even physically resist...
LoL He's right about the Beatles - a Paul McCartney song would end up being too choir-boy cheesy if John Lennon didn't intervene and spike it up; A John Lennon song would have so much offensive anti-establishment stink that it would take Paul's "scented air-freshener" style to tone it down. The end result was some of the most perfect slices of Pop Music ever composed; add to that some sublime George "Mahavishnu" Harrison guitar mantras and funny Ringo Star quips, and the...
Exactly. Just misery looking for company as usual.
OFCOM, the UK Telecoms regulator, attempted to "jump the gun" a couple of months ago and give the go-ahead to just one operator/carrier to commence an LTE rollout later this year, much to the annoyance of several other carriers that also successfully bid for radio spectrum and have LTE plans of their own. In the wake of the uproar from the other aggrieved carriers, OFCOM has had to withdraw its approval, or at least suspend it until a clear-the-air announcement has been...
Idiotic and pedantic. § Unlike Australia or the USA, the UK does not have any 4G networks yet. Who are these barely-literate complainants? § The new iPad has 4G-capable transmission and reception circuitry - where's the false advertising?
He'll eventually do what Steve would have done about Android had he lived long enough to execute. But in his own, quiet assassin way, full of logistics, precision and finishing touches that Steve never would have thought of. And when all is said and done, we'll say: "That's why Steve chose him of all the stars in the Apple galaxy"
Most excellent analysis, sunspot, undoubtedly fortified by hindsight.I too recall the heady days of the Atari ST (my first microcomputer) and the rival Amiga system, excitedly poring through the enthusiast magazines and LOOT (a printed precursor to eBay and CraigsList in the UK) for utility software and links to pirated stuff like C-Labs Notator (now Apple Logic Pro) and Cubase, two software giants that survived by leaping the chasm onto the more durable platforms.So much...
On the contrary, this is Kodak issuing a subliminal invitation to all patent trolls and Apple adversaries with an interest in monetising or cross-licensing non-FRAND patents to a grand sale of IP that could seriously hurt Apple.This is highly reminiscent of the way Sun Microsystems openly advertised the sale of the company touting the potentially huge liability of the likes of Google's Android where Java was concerned.It's a case of Apple's making hay while the Sun still...
You can be sure that they were well aware of the mass suicide threat by the X-Box factory line, easily the most sensational and telling barometer of labour conditions at Foxconn in particular and certain Tiger Economies in general, which occurred around a week before the NYT report published.But in choosing to highlight Apple as the main Western perpetrator, they elected to gloss over this newsworthy incident, and thereby let the cat out of the bag as to to their unworthy...
One sensational piece of labour news centred on Foxconn concerned the alleged threats made by one particular product team in the past week to commit mass suicide if their demands for improved pay and conditions were not met. As the product involved a hugely popular gaming console sadly not associated with Apple, the story has mysteriously been swept under the carpet. This particular product vendor, though well known to be a customer of Foxconn, was not even mentioned in...
