BlackBerry claims ugly duckling Passport mobe is a swan in the offing

Bear Features

Love the comments from the comedians who think they are being snobby with their "superior" phones. First of all, you've all been saying BlackBerry is dead, for about 4 years now. Secondly, we should all want competition to keep our favourite manufacturers in check. Who cares if you don't like BB or what I like? It's about as many players as possible.

BlackBerry's Passport will be the WEIRDEST mobe of 2014

Bear Features

Re: Yeah...

People like you have been repeating that "they're finished" for the last four years.

Z30: The classiest BlackBerry mobe ever ... and possibly the last

Bear Features

and again...firstly people, especially the media, have been saying BB is about to collapse, for the last 3 years.

Secondly, why bash bash BB? So you're an Aple Fanboi or an Android Fan... you really want no choice in the market? It HAS to be your brand and your brand only?? That makes sense... not.

I would be a travesty to see them go. I hope they don't. In addition lets have more and lets enjoy the choice! For our wallets' sake, as well as choice.

HALF of air passengers leave phones on ... yet STILL no DEATH PLUNGE

Re: Not just radio signal safety

I'm sorry but what are you talking about?

1. If they were THAT interested in passenger "undivided" attention they'd also comment about reading magazines and books and whatever else. Or are you suggesting that there are different levels of attention and it's OK to ignore if you're reading a book?

2. We are post 9/11. You have to jump through hoops to get on a plane now. One guys tries to blow up a plane with a shoe, we ALL have to remove shoes with heels through security before getting on a plane. But no serious checks with phones? I work at Gatwick and as a pilot once said to me, if there was any chance, whatsoever, that a phone could bring down a plane, he'd not be a pilot.

There has never been any evidence to show how these magic and mysterious signals can have any negative impact on flight systems. Because, obviously, if there was any evidence, along with the security checks due to terrorism and safety - we'd have very different rules and you'd either not be able to fly with your phone, or they'd have a hand-in system where you collect after landing.

Re: Best get those scientists out there to do their research

What are you waffling on about? .... We minimise our impact on whales by... guess what, leaving them alone. And that includes direct and indirect. We need to look at our own species and wake up to the fact that if we carry on the way we're doing, we'll not be here very long. We've only been here "five minutes" and look at what we have destroyed, including ourselves.

Don't get sued or cuffed on Twitter: Read these top 10 pitfalls

Bear Features

So should comedians be locked up?

You know there are two issues here:

1. The obvious is freedom of speech. And if you don't think it's an important point, think about the ramifications of no freedom of speech.

2. Those "high and mighty" "celebrities" growing a pair and ignoring what they don't like. Christ were they not called names at school? Am I not allowed to say that I think Nick Clegg is an idiot?

Sure there are a bucket loads of idiots on twitter. But it isn't against the law to be an idiot.

This is all about rich people and their PR companies trying to clamp down on the "image" they are fabricating to portray and nothing else. It isn't about anything else.

"you still use optical drives? how quaint! please give my regards to 8 years ago"

8 years ago? I assume you were criticising Apple for having it on their notebooks as of about a week ago then? ;o)

Honestly, I also bet you hate Flash but before Apple criticised it, you had no opinion on it whatsoever.

Can't beat putting a negative slant when one wasn't necessary. Report it, what your opinion is, is irrelevant. Good journalism (that's sarcastic by the way).

Re: How is this measured?

Now we have to ask if you're being "thick"? Do you know what marketing even is? You think it's just a tv advert or a billboard poster? ;)

So you just believe everything Apple, or any other company tell you because you have no "link" or "evidence" that says otherwise then? They saw you coming ;)

Re: The truth is iPad showed us

I was shown and was so happy with my MacBook Pro. Best thing I ever did... was sell it 18 months later. There is a life outside Windows, it has very high walls and you WILL do things their way ;)

I escaped... thank goodness.

Keep your cartoon GUI that hasn't changed for years, keep it and enjoy it. Though there's a life outside too y'know ;)

He singled out Apple because the article is about Apple... duh ;)

And just because everyone else uses Foxconn, doesn't mean Apple have to. The issue of suicides and working conditions remain for ALL companies using it. If you gave a shit you be writing to someone about it rather than criticising someone for bringing it up to begin with!

iPad users 'risk shoulder pain', say US gov, Microsoft boffins

Bear Features

This article about about tablets... was it written so the line: "an area almost completely dominated at the moment by Apple's iPad, selling in unbelievable numbers" could be inserted? When we mention cars do we talk about which car maker has sold the most? No... therefore this is just another excuse to say Apple Apple Apple...

Yes, you enjoy your little colourful apps that waste time. Meanwhile I'll be productive and not use my phone as a toy ;)

Microsoft prepping Office for iPad?

Sure they'll allow it. Their 'Pages' and 'Numbers' hardly set the world alight. The first thing I did when I got a mc was get MS Office. Apple will allow it quicker than you can say allooominum

Rumoured iPhone 5 'will have 4in screen' against Jobs' wish

Bear Features

But but...

Jobs said anything other that the iSomething was just too big? What will the bois do if this is true? *sigh* - I know, I know... it'll be the old "It's what he would have wanted". Or maybe a few leaked stories that he mentioned it just before he died. That'll do the trick. Any excuse to make the $$$ coming in from the imprisoned disciples. Their credit cards are poised and their position is already assumed.

Apple staff in UK told to cancel holiday in early October

Bear Features

Being good at marketing makes marketing invisible because you're thinking about the product. How can a story about staff being told to cancel holiday be 'good' marketing? Are you really excited by this story? Apple's marketing is a great comedy. I don't 'not like it', I laugh at it and enjoy mocking it :p

Bear Features

Irrelevant. Fact is that Apple released it, to be reported, twisted and all the rest of it. And it's lame marketing because it's now a great joke in its predictability.
