Apple lands slide-to-unlock patent blow on Motorola

Gregg Stuart

In the words of Al iG

Is it because "I" is Apple?

Gregg Stuart

Re: Rethink the slider

Do you not have a phone that automatically answers whilst on Hands-Free? Or have Apple had that disabled on your phone in a patent dispute?

Re: Re: Jeez

Of course I've read the article, otherwise I wouldn't have seen the icon at the bottom of the screen that I need to press in order to comment. Hang on - Apple might have a patent for that too, El reg watch out, you'll be banned in Germany. Oh and in case you didn't know, yes, Windows Phone does have an icon you need to drag across the screen to unlock, but there's can go left as well as right.

Gregg Stuart


Do these patent judges not know anything about tech or even bother to look for prior art. My Windows 6.0 phone pre-dates the iPhone and that has an icon to unlock the screen. This is getting ridiculous.

Due for another post Jobs crash?

Nobody wins here but the lawyers but then again when you've got as much money as Apple, do they really care?

Dutch trains

really annoying that you cant use UK issued bank cards on the Dutch train system ticket machines or at some stations ticket offices.

Sites knocked offline by OpenDNS freeze on Google

Gregg Stuart

Ah Google. I've found that the latest version of Kaspersky (2012) doesn't like Chrome so it's not just OpenDNS that seem to have taken a disliking to them at the moment.

Facebook quietly switches on facial recognition tech by default

Gregg Stuart

Yet again, it feels like Facebook is eroding the online privacy of its users by stealth."

If you're that worried about it then you shouldn't be on Facebook, everybody should know by now that there is no such thing as privacy on that site not even as an option.

EU to lift flight ban on carry-on liquids

Duty free

You can already take liquids bought from duty free shops on board planes in the EU, it's liquids that aren't bought in the duty free area that you can't.

Consumer Reports: 'We were wrong about the iPhone 4'

Gregg Stuart

It's not just the iPhone

I've found HTC has the problem as well. If you run the bluetooth, GPS and charge the phone in your car (which is perfectly reasonable if like me you also us the phone as your primary GPS), the phone will heat up a lot and you'll see that your GSM reception goes right down or drops off altogether. I've had this happen on a XDA Ignito (P3600) and the newer HTC HD2.

Privacy campaigner vows legal challenge to Google Street View

Gregg Stuart

Data Protection??

So what if it shows a photo of your house and since the photo was taken (these photos appear to be about 8 months old at least) you've had some work done in order to sell the house. The photo on Google Maps will show the house pre-work, so if a potential buyer goes to google maps to check the house out and then decides not to buy, where do you stand legally?

Ten years old: the world's first MP3 player

IT Angle


Sony won the Blu-Ray wars beacuse they finally managed to co-ordinate three different parts of teh business - consumer electronics, games division and the movie division, all three being one of the biggest players in their respective markets. If they can keep doing that with future product launches then watch out.

I still don't use a lot of MP3's, i'm still a CD and dare i say it Vinyl man.
