Sonyshine: Why on earth did Apple have to infuriate so many existing iPhone users by dumping unwanted U2 music onto them?

Following closely behind the recent iCloud nude celeb photo scandal this "abuse" of iCloud by Apple themselves is going to raise many questions in their customers minds as to how trustworthy iCloud really is!

It's certainly annoyed and worried me!

Why? because of Social Recognition, Human Vanity, Human anomaly in general .

OneMoreComment: Those two Samsung have the wrong logo on their back .....

Don't worry dude, there are going to be a lot of suckers to stand in line for hours to buy that thing, it is human anomaly and Apple is making "good" profit out of it .

John McCormack: Bigger iPhones? But, didn't Tim Cook two years ago tell us that the 4" iPhone was the "perfect size for one handed use?" Still, the camera looks a bit better, but the deals on the 5s will make it very attractive to first-time users.

That was then, now times hands got bigger .

valenttin: Vatican is not Rome...

But is in Rome …. Is like Visiting Mount-Athos claiming the same time you have never been in Greece.
Vaticanul, unul dintre microstatele europene, este situat pe colina Vatican din nord-vestul Romei, la câteva sute de metri spre vest de fluviul Tibru, pe malul drept al acestuia.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

Menneisyys: Smearing is awful even at base ISO. In no way a contest to the Nokia 808 WRT plain still IQ.

I *really* hope Samsung comes out with a Nokia 808-alike - with a huge sensor and great (prime) lens. Just another branch of their Zoom / Camera series, with photo buffs wanting a prime-"only", large-sensor, high-end phone-based camera would be a killer. The current lineup (unless you do need zoom)? Not so much, regrettably.

All in all, I won't ditch my Nokia 808 for the S5. The 808 is a perfect non-smart (I in no way use the Net on it, particularly not for browsing - the Achilles' heel of Symbian) phone for me. And, when better IQ is needed, I take my Fuji X-E1...

when better IQ is needed, buy yourself a Samsung (an S5 for example)........ :-)

geo444: a Pure Marketing Chimera !

for that price, you could buy 2 Excellent full manual Samyangs
the 35mm F1.4 and the 85mm F1.4 for eg.
then post-process all the swirling effects you want !

it's just a shame they have never been tested by DPR...

;)

If the are not checking us, as customers, then It is Pure marketing idiocy !!!

This unfortunate Canon looks like it is crippled with an ugly artificial "prosthetic" something, that looks more like a scuttle of a boat than a lens .
