  • Apple knew in advance about iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus 'Bendgate' says court filing

    If your behind is that big , for crying out loud, please don’t sit on your damn phone.
    It’s the small behinds that are causing problems. :D
     Reducto ad absurdium : wrapping a phone around a soccer ball will Cause it to bend more than, say,  the earth. 
  • Microsoft to reportedly target iPad with cheaper Surface tablets

    IT departments would demand users use a surface tablet instead of an iPad. That the hardware isn’t as good, the battery life poorer, any other deficiency would not matter. It would be a golden opportunity to get rid of iPads.  It’s MS all the way baby.

    They hates Apple users.
    Working in a big organization, I have to admit that you’re probably right. If it’s running a regular Windows OS and they can manage it like any other desktop or laptop, that’s just easier for them. Regardless of its usability. 
  • Video: As Dropbox IPO goes live, should you consider switching to iCloud Drive?

    iCloud free tier should at least match its basic phone capacities; 32 Gb.  I know that the phones whole device doesn’t need to be backed up, but it would allow some wiggle room with desktop and document sync as well. Besides, it’s a logical threshold that is easy to understand for consumers. 
  • Snapchat response to user revolt over iPhone app redesign advises of new features, no roll...

    Those 1.2 million complainants aren’t the customers. They’re the product. They now answer to shareholders first. They only have to keep the users happy enough not to leave in droves. They need to get more eyeballs onto the revenue generating content. 
  • EU slaps Qualcomm with $1.23 billion fine over illegal chip payment to Apple

    Good !
    How is is good when another major US tech company gets slapped with a huge fine by the EU kleptocracy?  Do you really think the EU gives a shit about protecting Intel’s interest or just doing a money grab because they can?

    Granted Apple and Qualcomm is fighting right now but so what? I like cheering on Apple beating Qualcomm or Google as much the next guy here but it’s still “in the family” so to speak.   

    When foreign governments make moneygrabs against US companies, even the ones I’m meh about, it’s a money grab against the US stock market and a money grab against the economy of the US.  I’m sure I have Q buried in some fund or another.

    Qualcomm is just like HP, Westinghouse, Motorola, IBM, DEC, Sun, Intel, Apple, AT&T, Microsoft.  Some of those still around, some of those not (or just in name).

    Ever hear of the Viterbi algorithm?  Invented by a co-founder of Qualcomm, Andrew Viterbi. 

    So it’s another one of US’s inventor/founder tech companies.

    Samsung they can beat on like a drum all day long and I don’t much care.
    So it doesn’t matter that they were in the wrong. It only matters to you that it’s hurting the American economy???
