So you see, your honour, at breakfast I bit into the slice of toast at the exact moment the windows 10 pop up appeared on the TV screen in my kitchen as I was watching the weather forecast, at which point like anyone I could not resist the urge to laugh uncontrollably. I could not breathe. I thrashed about the kitchen choking, knocking the TV, laptop, a few smartphones and a few expensive porcelain ornaments to the floor before my wife performed the heimlich on me, in the process dislocating her neck requiring expensive private medical attention.
All this came to $10,001 exactly. A cheque will be fine, thanks.
It's some kind of irrelevant obscure web server, right?
Can I visit it using "IE", which I hear is some kind of irrelevant obscure desktop web browser?
How about this "Windows Mobile" - that's as irrelevant and obscure, will that work with it?
With so much irrelevance floating around, why such a fuss?
One leaders Cast Iron Guarantee is worth as much as anothers Boom And Bust promise - and both equal anothers Tuition Fee Pledge.
I was painful watching the helpless LibDems during this parliament. Even at every party conference during their once-per-century stint in power, Nick Cleggs main message was "I'm sorry".
Anyway, so now the stars are visible. Hold on, the tin hat brigade said the reason they were blacked out was because at the time NASA hadn't got the tech to show their correct positions from such a different perspective, so would be caught out and had no option. So now we *can* compare them lets get on with it!
Unless...drat, they could be digitally inserting them today at the positions they are known to have been in back in '69. Oh my head hurts...
Remember folks - this is what Symbian was thrown away for, because we were all told it was a "burning platform", and Android swerved because "there is no way to differentiate handsets", unlike, err, the way manufacturers can infinitely customize WP8. Just don't tell that to Samsung, Sony, HTC etc.
Actually, yellow is an appropriate color when you think of whos pocket Elop was in when he made this "decision".
"Can you give me an example showing they are not just a bunch of humourless wannabees totally regretting their decision to ditch Google Maps?"
They get the user experience of being lost.
They get the user experience of not being able to get a WiFi signal.
They get the user experience of the new adapters they are forced to buy jamming in their sockets.
And of course they get the user experience of not having to carry those pesky full wallets about.
Thats the Apple advantage - its all about the user experience.
Apple just launched a turkey where previously they'd been doing rather well in that department.
Microsoft always had turkeys but salvaged them by spending zillions in marketing. As the article shows, that''s now turned into a fiasco.
Nokia ... well, you get the idea.
Wow, this is a bigger piss take than letting the fanbois think they were getting the iPhone5 last year then just giving them the same one with an "S" at the end.
Seriously - this is what they call innovation?
Its a larger screen, of the kind the Android handsets had 2 years ago.
Its got LTE, of the kind Android handsets had well over a year ago.
Its cameras and speed now match the Android handsets from a year ago.
Its adapter has changed from one proprietary format to another just to take the piss.
A bundled app found on every platform over the last 2 years to stick photos together is trumpeted as a huge breakthrough.
And existing apps look shit because they only stretched the screen in 1 direction, and are new to fragmentation unlike Android which has been dealing with this for years.
This could almost make microsofts offering look good.
