Google Announces Project Ara Developer Conference, Shows Off First Prototype

tuppe666 Use the technology on a chromebook (66 comments)

Ok I love the idea of a having a phone where I can choose the bits that are important to me. I will buy one of these phones, assuming they can sort out the cost issues(and get it to work)

What I would be more interested in is parts being interchangeable with a chromebook, although I would want mine to be running debian(based!?) distribution. Hell I think a computer with parts that fit together like sticklebricks is my dream.

Google's Nexus 6 sold out within a few minutes - sounds like shenanigans

tuppe666 Does not take a lot to be evil today (2 comments)

Running out of stock in minutes is certainly not evil. It is not even good PR. It pissed people off like it did last time...and the time before. The Nexus is simply very desirable, and its reputation continues to grow. Other companies should learn from the reasons for its successes...which is its point.

The real news is Google embracing as opposed to fighting USA heavily subsidised phones. That, and its choice of choosing a pocket sized internet device as its only phone.

The pretense that demand massively higher that supply is evil is pure spin. The only evil I see here is perhaps a rather fanatic fanboy getting upset that a phone without an "i" in front daring to have huge demand. Although to be honest after seeing all the spin on how wonderful credit card companies suddenly are to defend apple pay as opposed to the thieving bastards that they are who take from those that can least afford their homes, who get the police to evict children onto the street. That is fucking evil...and pretending credit cards are good.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

tuppe666 Storage is not same as GUI Design (370 comments)

I dislike most of Apples hardware choices. Ignoring the fact that say that ZIP drives where pushed by apple. CD and Floppy where sacrificed for weight...actually moved to external caddies, which is where they should be, as they were (increasingly) occasional use devices. My CD\DVD still gets utilised in my computer and I lament there was never a local;cheap;large enough;versatile;small replacement to replace it,Cloud and USB are better in their own ways, but not a real replacement. My ever growing raided hard drive storage is simply burning electricity, and my fear of losing everything grows.

Lennart Poettering: Open Source Community "Quite a Sick Place To Be In"

tuppe666 This is nothing Like GamerGate (993 comments)

This happens online a lot. It's bad, it's stupid, most of us oppose it, but as GamerGate shows, it can do real harm.

This is nothing Like GamerGate which was as much about an educated woman calling a routinely demonised group a bunch of cunts...over and over again with a convoluted version of feminism for money championed by the verge...again.(There was some shit about that woman making a game about depression(Good for her) that got maybe more credit than it deserved, which I am really not sure about(Game about depression even if like a simple choice game is cool) and a sex scandal which I love...but nobody got and clearly by my description neither did I).

This is about making changes to the OS that are viewed as unpopular...ribbonbar, real names in youtube, removing reatures from nautilus. Gnome Shell, the list is endless.

Lennart Poettering: Open Source Community "Quite a Sick Place To Be In"

tuppe666 Nothing to do with Open Source (993 comments)

This is entirely to do with breaking something popular; something that worked well. In truth I think pulseaudio is wonderful...but I haven't forgotten the breakages for many, even if the fault laid elsewhere(Ubuntu and Audio) drivers. I am pretty ambivalent about systemd, but I understand why *faster* startup is important. Overall my experience is better for Lennart, but again this is not about Open source, but major changes/regressions for little gains...worthwhile only historically. It pisses people off.

This really raises questions why Apple under Jobs an obvious competitor can release irreparably faulty(Antergate,Bendgate...a little thanks to Verge, Camera problems) buggy products and have it defended, Releasing Buggy/Incomplete Products(Maps/iOS8) or even slowing down products that worked to unworkable(every version of iOS on every iPhone)

Maybe the real problem is Marketing or transparency or community involvement whatever stops the users(Developers) feeling helpless (Jobs would smile in a turtleneck and say you don't want those droids) to being forced to suffer major inconveniences. I object to Lennart kicking back at what seems like an ungrateful community(sic), but really its a cry for support in an area he (and Mr Cook) don't have.

That said what a man.

Consumer Reports: New iPhones Not As Bendy As Believed

tuppe666 No this is PR (304 comments)

So it's a hype?
Who would have thought that!

Ironically this is all about Public relations and nothing about the truth, and nobody thinks its apple can tell the truth anymore.. Apples standard to simply lie about everything from taxies to white plastic to antennas to how there devices should be used.If finally catching up with them.

I look forward to the truth coming out.

tuppe666 Android Beats Apple Again (206 comments)

I am an Android user

Me too, and I think that the fact that I have a 5.5" Phone in my pocked that cost a third the price of the iPhone, and in every way is better. Screams otherwise. I like my music Bass heavy and headphones to look good...like my phone, hell I could use the money I save by not buying an Apple.

tuppe666 Shipped figures vs Sale figures (206 comments)

Apple always reports actual sales

No...no...nope from a random 10K..."Product is considered delivered to the customer once it has been shipped and title and risk of loss have been transferred. For most of the Company’s product sales, these criteria are met at the time the product is shipped. For online sales to individuals, for some sales to education customers in the U.S., and for certain other sales, the Company defers recognition of revenue until the customer receives the product because the Company retains a portion of the risk of loss on these sales during transit."

So measure like every other company.

tuppe666 Apple repeated Myth No #1078 (206 comments)

Apple uses the actually sold numbers, Android used the hidden in the supply chain number.

Apple NEVER has used sold it has always stated that it counts them as sold because if only ships what it know it will sell. Always has check its the investment part of its site. It is actually more hilarious as Apple has to *cough* adjust its iPad figures after what was excused as changes in supply chain. We know see it is as Apple simply failing to sell iPads.

tuppe666 "What Profits?" Mr Cook (206 comments)

where do you think the money came from that they are using to buy stock back?

As I said it came from bonds, bought against money that is taxable nowhere for fear it might be used to pay for hospitals and schools. Mr Cook should have gone to jail.

tuppe666 Definations (206 comments)

iPhone is a product, android is an industry.

Know they are both products, just on the iPhone...iOS...the OS is a Unique Selling Point, and it used to be a pretty good one. As opposed to Android sold at Zero cost to Manufactures of Phones, for collecting the revenue from Advertising and the revenue from the Play store.

You can only argue which has the better model(Short term profits vs Long term Market share), I personally think Androids is better long term.

Spin somewhere else

tuppe666 Chinese Made Phone (206 comments)

How do they score on the ratio of iPhones sold to factory-worker suicides?

Not so many since they put in nets, and live in packed dorms... They only are made to feel like killing themselves. Now Riots and beating up the security guards, that is a different story.

Whatever you gotta say to get your dick hard, ass-wipe!

And this is why I could never buy an Apple product again. I could never associate myself with a product that people who act like this buy.

tuppe666 Apple (Market) Shares (206 comments)

Which idiot voted this nonsense up? Obviously there aren't 1.5 billion android phones sold per day, and Apple shares are not dropping, in fact they have been on an upward trend in the last 6 months.

Sorry Apple Market Share...It peaked back in 2012. Ironically its shares are only going up do to market shenanigans. Including buybacks..and Apples (Fuck America Yeah!) Bonds.

In other news Hyundai outsells BMW 4 to 1. To each his own.

I am not sure if Apple is Like BMW with small memory, and storage, and screen resolution and battery..without features like waterproofing...maybe a smart car?

But one thing is for certain is that whatever make Apple is Android is Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Ford Toyota, Royals Royce etc etc

tuppe666 Android sells one and Half Million every day (206 comments)

We're what, 9 billion people on this Earth and closest part of space and you want us to belive that 1 billion Android devices are sold every day?

A million is simply not as much as it used to be. Android sell 1 and half million devices daily last time I checked, although this was before the massive growth in places like India. Apples Share continues to drop.

Is that better. :)

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 Becuse it is small (264 comments)

The iPhone 6 comes with 1 Gb of memory. And has options for 16, 64 and 128 Gb of storage.
Why does this even get published?

Because 16GB it is considered useless with todays ever growing Application, Photo and Video sizes...and ironically OS Sizes. Even. National newspapers are discussing it http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sci...

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 Comparing Apples with Apples (264 comments)

That's about right. I just checked my iPhone (4s), and in over two years of use, never cleaning anything, I've barely passed 5GB. By far the biggest use of space is recorded videos, followed by photos, then several big apps.

And it is not a good comparison. Photos and Videos take up more space on a phone because the cameras now are higher resolution, even though they are still tiny compared to the opposition, and Apps are growing exponentially I have several Apps that are GBs. I know Apple does not have as many Apps as Android, but I would find it astonishing if it were not the same.

Apple has no Clothes

tuppe666 tuppe666 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

tuppe666 (904118) writes "The title maybe should be "The rise of Frankenstein Android" or "2013 the Year of Mobile Windows", but the slump in market share for the iPhone from 23.1% to 14.9% is the most shocking. Androids market share of hit a new high with 75%. Nokias 1:1 conversion to Windows Phone again fails as Symbian at 2.3% is still outselling Microsoft Phone at 2%.

Apples market slump for tablets mirrors that of the iPhone as the iPad drops to an all time low of 50.4% with Android taking up most of the excess, although some of it not in a form Google would like [Amazon hitting 9%]. Microsoft is still yet to make any impact in tablet market, and have positioned themselves squarely in the larger tablet market, an area Android has repeatedly failed to inroad [The Nexus 10 has not yet proved itself]. Although I am surprised at the lack of attention around devices like the $35 media tablet called Aakash"
