considering how much utter crap that appears whenever you search for anything on amazon that is impossible to filter out, why would anyone try to buy anything with an inaccurate voice system.

They wanted to have a USP for the phones and made a shit touch based interface and rammed it into desktops to get you use to it, even though for desktop touch tiles are totally shit.

It was a forced crap change for "marketing reasons" not good technical reasons.

Knew this was bollocks from the start, when I heard how much $$$$ they had conned idiot investor companies for shitty AR

AR is very niche, looks pretty, but once you try it your bored after 10 mins, just ask how many pokemon go users still have AR feature turned on

AR it's just a gimmick outside of industry ( and for lots of stuff inside it too) it doesn't really have a useful purpose that works much better than we have now.

Like all selfish heartless twats,

you miss the point of the NHS (until you and your relations need it, then you whine you had to wait an hour).

It means people can be useful members of society without be worried every 5mins that if they get sick they will be bankrupted (see USA shit show!).

Fuck it, why don't you just fuck off to USA and give that a try before you start shitting on the NHS.

say again, how are they dodging 30% apple tax?

article seems lopsided, pushing the blame on google.

But never explains how fortnite dodges the Apple tax????

Remember Apple are the bastards that started this shit, and there excuse of security is bull, it's to make sure your not bypassing their Apple toll.

Remember Apple stops anything that attempts to do what apple does ( true 3rd party browsers NOT allowed).

and if apple make a new app that nicks others ideas, the other app gets banned.
