Portable drive, 5TB capacity. Hmm, there's something fishy here

Really?

I have had one of those 5 Terabyte seagates for at least three months. And the reviews start in March on Best Buy.

iPhone 7's Qualcomm, Intel soap opera dumps a carrier lock-out on us

Re: CDMA

Misinformed much?

I got take my unlocked Iphone 6s, that has no CDMA radio, and use it with the AT&T, Tmobile, and even Verizon(As they are moving to GSM) with no problem, not to mention the tons of MVNos.

As for dual card phones, of course you can buy them in the US, but no one really needs them as they tend to choose a carrier and stick with it, and most carriers are no offering free roaming options in canada and mexico.

So unless you are road warrior outside of those three nations, you really do not need a dual sim card rig.

Re: The difference between Apple and Samsung

Before OS X was even a thing CUPS was around, it came out in 1999. Where was OS X? Yeah 2001. Apple had to use CUPS or roll their own. And Apple didn't them until 2007. So all that printing to Unix systems had nothing to do with Apple.

Re: Surely she could have come up with a better example for Apple

Apple Music was released for Android last year...

Also Apple had 44 percent of the smart Phone market and Android 51.

Apple is a single manufacturer while the Android numbers are split out between multiple manufacturers.

So in reality apple is the biggest player who can influence it.

Re: Now compare that to modern mobile OSes

Do you sleep with your iphone in the front of the back of your underwear?

Your post has virtually nothing to do with the article.

My HP Touchpad has been running Android fine for almost three years now. And you have conveniently left out CyanogenMod.

Android has had support for it via Chrome since 2013...

5.5in iPhone 6, iWatch hypegasm: What will Apple reveal - BE the rumour

Re: "What will Apple reveal tomorrow"

The Moto X costs 259-349 new. When it was first released in could be had for 299 or 399. It never costs 650.

Lie much?

Re: The only reason for this...

I guess you never heard of IAD, which uses collected data to target users for advertiser selection. .From data they gathered from their users.

Fanboy much? They have been doing it for years.

Re: ₤24.99

Stop gobbling on Job's dead noodle. Apple would charge three times as much.

This is great for people who only use monitors or who actually want to split the screen or just want this advantage in the living room.

Actually, AT&T in the US did this with Microsoft and their UVERSE service years ago. You could buy a kit that allowed you to use your 360 as an extra cable box and access the dvr and all the features via the Xbox.

You didn't get the MeMO? Asus Pad 7 Android tab is ... not bad

How quaint, you call Amazon a non tech company. A company that has been around almost since the dawn of the internet and virtually defined e-commerce as we know it, not to mention on the forefront with it's cloud offerings.

NEWSFLASH, companies exist to make money.

I mean, I guess Apple is the only tablet maker out there that you approve of? Because you can always buy software from third parties on the Ipad or flash different roms onto them...

There is no such thing as an Iphone 4GS. It is just the 4s.

Re: Venezuela, Colombia or Argentina.

As someone who is a US and a Colombian Citizen, I would leave Colombia off of your list.

Colombia does not have a leftist government, very far from it. They take their cues from the ghost of Ronald Reagan.

Plus, while the majority of my IT career has been in the states(since the mid 1990s) I did work in Colombia for a latin american multinational concern, and I rarely met any developer who had the coding chops to write something of this magnitude.
