Tonight on GeekNights, Rym debates what phone he should buy to replace his Nexus 4. The Sony Z3 compact is the smallest (smaller than the iPhone 6), but is still a god damned monster. In the end, the best cell phone to buy at the end of 2014 is either the iPhone 5s or the Nexus 4. In the news, you can sort of build an actual PC on Newegg, New York's gentrification monoliths are getting gigabit WiFi, Google Glass is "dead," at least for mass market consumers, but still has massive utility in professional spaces. Also, you can start to earnestly debate whether or not it's immoral to torture a simulated creature.Download MP3
My iPhone 4s is getting a bit slow now with some apps, and iOS8 isn't really designed for the screen and processor and RAM, but it's steadily chugging along, even now the top of the front glass panel is cracked. Unless it completely breaks I'll wait until next year when the 4s will no longer run the latest iOS, and when Apple Pay stuff is available in Germany.
I use T-Mobile so the data is plenty fast.
The 4" screen size is too small for a fully functional OS with consistency through its menus, whether 3rd party or not. Media also sucks at this size.
I hope that the phone just becomes a big battery for android wear, this is where Google was headed with glass and watches. I didn't know USB on the go was a thing.
There are many apps that you can torrent on Android, you could do this in the Win CE days so not sure why you would think that it was impossible now. uTorrent is also the most popular. Maybe iOS thinks this is porn and is censoring iPhone users from the world.
I don't often use a Mac but why would you buy a Mac Pro, most high grade iMacs are better for video compression, your top of the line trash can shouldn't be beaten in any test by your consumer grade products.
That pachinko - like machine is crazy.
If you look at any of the Apple commercials, they only talk about their product. However, on any other product e.g. Samsung, Microsoft, and HTC, most of their commercials (yes, I see these commercials mostly during Hand Egg) have to either mock Apple or compare their products to Apple products to state their products are vastly superior to what Apple has to offer. In the end, Apple still sells quite well regardless of negative publicity/commercials.
I've used many Apple products in the past and had really poor experiences with service and the products.
Apple is an excellent recipe/rebranding/advertising company, they've never really invented anything but made some great products from pieces of other's innovations. Using these recipes to then become patent trolls seems a little be silly e.g. wedge shaped laptops, squares with rounded corners. It seems two faced but it is the optimal strategy for a recipe company.
Who knows maybe they will patent 5k monitors. A Mac is just a PC with the cheapest components in it.
I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at unless you think a PC is inherently combined with Windows.
Are you comparing operating systems now? Hardly innovative if it has been present in 3rd party apps and built into the the OS of mobile systems for over a year on multiple platforms. Yeah I'm doing to try writing some stuff in Objective C for iTunes during the break. One of my better friends does this as his full time job. I don't think Apple receives any negative publicity. My twitter and news feeds are constantly full of an unending, uninformed positive perspectives on Apple with passive aggressively written posts or articles written towards other tech companies e.g. oh look "people are moving to iOS 8", followed by "Android users must be fuming over fragmentation". However when the iOS 8 released in a buggy state or the Apple keynote was executed poorly, the events are ignored. Anything odd that happens with other platforms is trashed in mainstream media. The double standard is so glaringly hilarious.
As for commercials I just did a search on Youtube for Samsung Mocks Apple with several commercials over the last year or so, not to mention there are commercials from Windows and HTC.
Overall, I'm not hardcore into all the events or news and don't pay that much attention. The only thing I'm exposed to are the occasional Verge articles, commercials I can't ignore during football games, and a tweets on my feed.
My mainstream media do you mean major news networks like CNN, ABC, and/or CBS? Or others like Wired, TechCrunch, and/or Engadget ?
But you are a classic hater. As soon as someone posts anything about any Apple product, you trot out exactly the same kinds of responses, all of them negative. Even if it what you say is true, which it blatantly isn't, it's just sooo tedious and repetitive that you might as well be a bot.
Are you trying to convince of anything? Are you preaching? Attempting to convert us away from some church of Apple? You're just living in your own bubble.
We all have criticisms of Apple products. That's exactly what these threads are about! Scott complaining the iPhone 6 is too big. Other people (including some of the best known pro-Apple commentators) agreeing. Rym not even considering Apple because he prefers Android. We are not mindless drones sucked in by advertizing, but informed customers. This was actually a reply to Ro's comment: "If you look at any of the Apple commercials, they only talk about their product."
