Basecamp CEO issues apology after 'no political discussions at work' edict blows up in his face


So they have cut a lot of advantages and than blamed it all on banning politics?

Re: buying a Ferrari and fitting it with four space-saver spare tires

Have you tried a Android? (Dont hurt me :D)

Nobody in China wants Apple's eye-wateringly priced iPhones, sighs CEO Tim Cook


As a designer i really like the idea that design sells so well on such a high price to so many people. OFC, the designers do not get enough credit for their work, the CEO gets most of the money, so i have to optimize my expenses so i will never buy a iPhone.


Re: Patriotism [Was Overpriced kit]

Is not only patriotism, some Chinese phones are really good and cheap, even for Europe. My brother has a 3 years OnePlus and i have a 6 months Galaxy S9 (which is a lot more expensive). Trust me, i have found things that OnePlus does better than a S9. Was like having the joker on a game of cards. Instantly i have found OnePlus as a viable alternative to any phone. Best thing about it was the battery life, after 3 years was running almost 3 days without charging.


Re: Overpriced kit

How can you be owned by Google in China? China is a communist country, they are really paranoid regarding the privacy of Mother China and her citizens. If China allows Android than there is no doubt that Google doesnt own anything.

Forgive me, father, for I have used an ad-blocker on news websites...

Photographer hassled by Port of Tyne for filming a sign on a wall


The worst article I have ever read. Any photographer have to deal with all kind of situations daily, some much worst than this. This article is totally unfit in a tech website or on any other online newspaper because is not of public interest, this belong on the personal blog of a failed photographer who can't deal with a simple situation.

Re: To anyone embarking on a Video Game / 3D art career...

Five reasons why the Google tax deal is imploding

I can turn Yahoo! around claims hedge fund manager


She tried everything to make Yahoo a giant again, cool parties, lobby, publicity, scandals, hype, new logo, etc. What she has missed is to make Yahoo useful again for the users. Boosting the number of ads without boosting the number of new users is the worst policy possible. Really, if I travel to another country I can't even authenticate. WTF, that's totally not user friendly and is not logical...

7 million Apple Watches just buried the competition – Canalys


Apple Pay is my favourite thing with it, so useful when using London Underground , ands it's quicker than using traditional plastic

You should buy a bike or a car, it's quicker than anything

Found it handy answering calls when my hands are messy like when cooking in the kitchen

And how do you hold the phone with messy hands after you answer?

Add on the fact I can now keep track of how active I am too, I'd feel lost without an Apple Watch now

Keep track of how active you are? Lost without an Apple Watch? Alzheimer? :d

Cyber racketeers convicted over $1bn international conspiracy


Any American citizen had to pay taxes regardless of in which country he made the profit. That's why many Americans who work in other countries drop the American nationality.

I don't know if this is the case here, though.

US can't get its hands on Navy hacker Victor Faur, aka SirVic


“Surely under US law it's perfectly legal to hack foreigners computers? And therefore vice-versa, so no case to answer.“

Don't forget to mention that even spying innocent people via Facebook and Google by NSA is legal and moral for them

Re: Dull and slow

“And for general usage could you tell the difference?“

Everything uses GPU this days so I guess that there will be an improvement. Even on surfing on internet, browsers support hardware acceleration, YouTube too. I am very optimistic regarding this new design but I bet that Apple has already patented this :))

"Is Ubuntu good on phones? I'm not sure what advantages one would get by booting Ubuntu instead of Android."

Gimp will be great on a tablet. Inkscape too, especially if you will be able to use the touch as a graphical tablet.

Apple won't bag HUMUNGOUS 4G deal... 'cos China HATES plastic iPhone 5C – analyst


Buying iPhones from the Chinese manufacture for 1 dollar and selling it back for a shit load of money, is this the Chinese economic plan?
