Siri Gives Apple Two Year Advantage Over Android

KURAAKU Deibiddo Re:will never use it (800 comments)

I *DEFY* you to send a pdf from safari via e-mail.

If you want to attach the PDF, then all you need to do is:

  1. 1. Go to the PDF in Safari
  2. 2. Tap "Open in iBooks"
  3. 3. Click the action button (looks like a square with an arrow coming off of it).
  4. 4. Pick "Email"

Or you could just click the action button in Safari and pick "Mail Link to this Page".

Apple's portable devices (laptops excluded) are designed to make the stuff you do 90% of the time extremely easy (take notes, check weather, etc), but everything else (e-mail a pdf, copy a simply link from a google-search, etc) either requires 20 minutes of stupid crap or is simply impossible.

Both of your complaints are pretty trivial to do...I've already explained how to attach the PDF, and you can copy links from any website by pressing and holding on the link until Safari offers you "Open" / "Open in New Page" / "Copy" / "Cancel". (I'll give you a hint, you want to use "Copy"...) Or you could just go to the page you want to link, and use the action button in Safari and pick "Mail Link to this Page".

"I don't know how to do it" != "It's impossible."

Western Digital Announces 1TB Mobile HD

KURAAKU Deibiddo Re:Cool. Now my music will change again. (252 comments)

I hate to be pedantic, but the idea of "navel derring-do" is rather amusing in a no-doubt perverse manner. Hopefully his aim was not so sorely lacking that he was invading someone's navel. ;)

Canada Election Result Bad News For DMCA Opponents

KURAAKU Deibiddo Re:The people have spoken (311 comments)

Hopefully, with all of Ray Beckerman's submissions to Slashdot, a decent percentage of Slashdot feels this way; that for every Jack Thompson (who, thankfully, has been disbarred) there are lawyers who practice the law for more noble reasons.

Hopefully Canada doesn't catch the copyright madness the U.S. has; I'm glad to see that the DMCA is finally coming back to bite some of the politicians who voted for it.

Every country needs lawyers and activists fighting for the rights of the consumer; big business should not receive a lot of the special privileges that it receives.
