Numbers don't lie: Apple's ascent eviscerates Microsoft

Frank Butcher


Goose, meet Foie gras. MS could introduce FruitBoot, enabling execs to DualBoot Win7 and OsX, in a semi deperate bid to remain relevant. At least thats what Rickay thinks, and Pat seems to believe the tablet market is going to get really big, like her asre ... chuckle chuckle. It'll cost them only an arm tho ..

Are intel and Ms clutching each other fearfully, wondering what this new Google, Apple,Samsung driven world is going to do to their Loved Duopoly

Re: Interesting little device

I like the look of this .. but maybe I should spend the money on a haway g300 and a new CPU instead? pat certainly thinks so, but ricky and bianca want one of these ..

But actually

Those things are merely a precursor to get you in the mood for being tracked watched and monitored. Then in the future your purchases will be debited from your wallet automatically(NFC) via overhead 3d enabled cameras(kinect). No humans needed. They have even shown an "uber" marker where the shelves are stocked by machine. From the inside, like Woolies counters.

Scotland considers dishing out more iPads to schoolkids

Frank Butcher

Imagine the scene

A giant black Ipad appears in the middle of the people posting here. they fear it, but gradually they approach. One touches it, and dodges back. ANother steps forward and licks it. Throbbing music starts in the background, all the commentards now start throwing their clubs in the air and shouting, uttering gibberish in loud yelps. Finally, one kills and eats a Tapir, safe in the knowledge that no kid of His/Hers is going to be issued with an Ipad, thank you very much.

Only global poverty can save the planet, insists WWF - and the ESA!

Frank Butcher

Well Done WWF

I wholeheartedly endorse these plans from the WWF. I already adhere to most of these items even going so far as to power my computer by cycle wheel technology. A simple 13 hour cycle enables me to logon for fully thirteen minutes, if I turn the brightness down.

Gov wants to build new third runway at say, stansted, Locals rightly get up in protest. They form a group who become quite successful in repelling Gov land grabbers. WayHAy , it turns out the leader of said citizens searched <porn> or other nasty website, it leaks out. And can we trust the police with this stuff? They look like they are ready to sell out their Grandmas (+romance with Wayne Rooney) already, so no, we cant. Teh gov are in the pockets of large Corps and other interests, who are desperate to spy on your every decision.

I used to work for them, in hammersmith. I dont now. Its all gone downhill since then. I would never have authorized anything as bad as this.

The true, tragic cost of British wind power

Frank Butcher

Re: It's about the money not saving the planet.

If you removed the tax subsidy from aviation fuel and building new airports , then 95% of planes would be broken up and melted down for scrap. Anyway with GW, we'll all need less heating thus producing less GHG, partially solving the problem. Or is it that the weather will get so much more windy (due to GW) that the turbines will reach unheard of levels of efficiency. Halt Wind now, I cant afford it.

Five ways Microsoft can rescue Windows Phone

Frank Butcher

Of course they care

Within years the desktop computer market will be a niche. Mobile OS will span all of ppl devices. My cure for winpho is yes, more content, but crucially Price, I can get a capable android for £50 , sorry Nokia/MS you are going to have to dabble in the murk of budgetland. And one other thing, embrace open stds, If I cant play my DVD/Blu CD rips on the phone its not going in my pocket. So many free android apps eg remote controls, mapping,navigation and get some good/great games. And Microsft CAN withstand a billion or two being burnt to get market sare. making a full takeover/merger a possibility. Reasonable OS .....

If they stopped using the word unlimited.. then shock horror .. they'd be just like every other ISP. Their ISP USP would be SOL. Is 3gb OTT? YMMV. What would a reasonable allowance be?
