Definately. If we can criticize something, most people will. But I mean honestly - it's cool that its free and all that, but what does This Music application have to do with lactation? Or Milk? -- I can't answer that as I have not yet used the app, but look at the names of other apps. Songza, Music Unlimited, Slacker Radio, I mean, these names make total sense. If I'm ever going to use Milk, I ...
I totally agree with you. 930 Mil seems like it would be pocket change to Apple, and their patents are garbage. The system is broken, and they knew it. I'm seriously considering selling my apple devices, I have a few.... their douchbaggery seems to have no end.
I mean, 4 or 5 letter words should be fine, but it matters what word you chose. Milk is a pretty stupid name for a music app, unless it was M.I.L.K where each letter stood for something, I can understand that, but naming a music / radio station streaming app Milk? It makes no sence, plus, nobody who is lactose intollerant would ever download this app, so they are possibly missing out on business.
Enemy of my Enemy saying
"The Enemy of my Enemy is my friend" I may be wrong, but the person that coined that phrase... wern't they murdered by one of their best friends ? I'm pretty sure he was. Terrible saying.
Insane pricepoint for the plan
So you buy a Sub-$200.00 phone, get free service for 3 months, and then you get UNL T+T+500MB for only $10.00 per month? Is FreedomPop one of those mixed Cell/Wifi providers or something, becuase that is an insane deal. I can't access their site from my current location, anybody know ?
I use some Yahoo services through my google login, mainly becuase it's easy and I didn't have to sign up for anything else. Once they make this change, I will stop using Yahoo, and so will thousands of others, probably. Big mistake
Re: poor guys
Yeah - I got fooled way back in the day, maybe 8 - 10 years ago, I paid almost $100 for a "fiber optic" Monster HDMI wire, and I will never, ever make that mistake again. Same thing with audio wires for home theatre speakers - doesn't matter what kind you get. I read about a focus group where they used Normal speaker wire for part of the test, and then, they Cut coat-hangers with tin snips, ...
Re: poor guys
I don't know about what kind of HDMI cable you need, but where I live here theres a place called the Dollar Store, that has HDMI cables for $3, and they work.
Re: What's a few dollars
They just placed an order for 28000 toilet seats. Gotta get that 21 mil from somewhere!
Re: Calling to Canada in Mexico
Very true - my ex brother-in-law was an American living near Allentown in PA, he applied for a work permit / visa to be a truck driver, and he was accepted immediately, they even told him he could start working and making money in Canada before the paperwork came back. So yeah, we need workers.
Calling to Canada in Mexico
1000 minutes for calling to Canada in Mexico? Damn! All those Mexican-Canadians living in the USA and taking trips to Mexico will love that !
Re: Who would have thought..
Based on how poorly they've done, who are you to say that I couldn't do a better job? Nobody, thats who. Clearly they don't know too much about it, as they have just done an awesome job managing their finances.
Who would have thought..
That a company who could barelly manage their network would also be able to apparently barelly manage their own business. I thought it was funny that it says that sprint was "Dissapointed". I'd be pretty dissapointed too if somebody tried to sue me for almost 400 million dollars. Hopefully the state takes every single penny from them.
The seniors are really gonna love this. You know, the 65 - 80 year olds who can barelly drive let alone see anything on a 4" screen, plus the people who don't have those devices, or really just anybody. Really dumb move to remove ALL of the machines.
Re: Water Resistant
I mean, why would you wear an expensive electronic device in the shower, even if you can? In the very, very slightest of chances that water does get inside, it's broken. I mean, working for T-Mobile, I saw an account once where one of the lines had over 40,000 text messages sent in less than a month, I saw it with my own eyes. The caller was the parent of the person who had the line, apparently ...
Nobody needs Metal
Plastic is a win over metal in several fields, just as metal is a win over plastic in several fields. For somebody like me, who lives in a very, very, VERY cold and very very humid environment, I don't want a metal phone. I live somewhere where the humidity is often condensing - which would spell death for a phone with a metal body. MOST metal phones don't have user replaceable options, like SD card, Battery - this is MOST, ...
Re: A smartwatch with some useful features
The last time I got excited about owning / wearing a watch was when I was a little kid, like 20 years ago, and I wanted to make sure I knew what time it was when my family took a 6+ hour flight down to Florida. I haven't even thought about wearing a watch since then, theres just, no need, no use.
Re: A smartwatch with some useful features
Based on the fact that this device has a 210mah battery, I doubt that it has an internal GPS system that can handle this.. methinks that it would be too much of a burden on that tiny battery.
but did he died?
If you look at the sticker picture that is inside the blackberry, it looks like the dude is in a hospital bed, so yeah maybe skateboarding was a bad idea 8) I'm really hoping he pulls through, he promised to do my taxes... :wink:
These stickers are horrifying!
One of them looks like a frog is enveloping/eating a cat, and the cat is smiling like it's having a great time! Wow... I guess this is the kind of thing we can expect from BB moving forward!
I think they mean alternate realities. Like, not somebody creating the inside of a church, or monument, or location, but totally alternate realities, like an alien world, or the inside of a starship - things we couldn't do on our own with what we have today. When thinking about it like that, this is actually pretty cool.
This is GOLD, Jerry! I've been wanting this ever since I was a kid and couldn't find my keys. This item is a life saver!
Re: This is a joke right?
I know right? I remember when the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant came out, everybody was saying the screen was huge, even this website's own review said it had a huge screen, and it was 4 inches. I dont know how they can call 4.7 inches mini, they should have just made it it's own phone and given it a different name.
""Artemis claims that its technology gives each smartphone user on a given cell access to the full LTE speed of that cell, no matter how many other people are using it."" Really Artemis? NO MATTER how many? So if 6 billion people were using one cell, all of them could get full LTE speeds? You did say NO MATTER HOW MANY!! You people think I'm being stupid, but they said no matter ho wmany. They said it, not me. This ...
It would only cause harmful interference if the wifi devices are trying to access the exact same frequency as any other device, or as something that causes interference, like another phone. Yeah, having all those people packed together like that would definately cause poor service and other problems too. I know that for me, if I am streaming video over my 2.4Ghz network and I turn on my Microwave, it gets really choppy really fast - I ...
Killswitches should be in everything.
based on their logic, a killswitch should be in EVERYTHING. Stolen Car? Don't worry. Hit the kill switch to melt your engine block! People should have killswitches in them too, so if you get kidnapped, your life can be ended quickly without the need to pay a ransom, giving the terrorists NO LEVERAGE, which is really the important thing.
Once a corporation, ANY corporation becomes that big, and powerful, with that many dependent customers, they can then re-write the rules of the game. It's bad enough that 2 carriers do it, but this merger would create 3, LARGE carriers, who would then pretty much control everything, and your choices would be limited unless, in most cases, you want to go with a small regional carrier, who will probably have a limited calling area and domestic roaming charges ...
This is very, very good news. Hopefully this will be shot down before it ever comes to fruition. I'm not sure how Son is going to try to convince them that this would be good for the people and good for competition, most people can see already that clearly, it would not be. I think the problem is these high-level talks. Is somebody inhailing helium? They should try hexaflouride, then they can have some low-level talks ...
Re: Larger 720p screen with a slow dual core processor
There is no way that videos will lag on this device, full screen or otherwise. My old device had a dual-core 800Mhz processor, and I could watch full-screen 1080P encoded videos on it's 4" screen. The screen's resolution was less than 720P. I really, really doubt a new Snapdragon 400 dual-core 1.2Ghz would even blink at a high-definition video, large screen or not. Also, I played lots and lots of games on that phone, including Angry Birds ...
Re: Or you can get a Windows Mobile device and get Microsoft Office for free
That's not a fair comparison - Windows 8 interface is garbage compared to ANYTHING, including previous versions of windows. I sat down at a Windows 8 PC, and I felt like an old man using a computer for the first time, or the engineer of a steam-ship asked to fix a warp drive engine. I didn't know where anything is, couldn't access anything easily, they moved a whole bunch of junk around, and the default setup had no ...
Re: Antenna Gate Wins
I'm going to disagree with you. As a customer service representative, I can easily tell the age of a caller when I am speaking to them, and I can check accounts for Birth Dates as well. Let me tell you no, It is definately not his Generation, it is yours. I can tell when I am speaking to a teenager, or somebody in their 20s, and let me tell you - there is a HUGE difference in the ...
Re: Antenna Gate Wins
Fifth - An already overpriced phone, overpriced accessories, and pay even more just to have what other phones already came with? huge fifth.
Their commercials are absurd, especially the one with the child showing his family some holiday video that we are to presume he took using a 5S. Are we to really believe that he used his $700.00 phone while outdoors sledding down a steep hill, falling into the snow? Is this the kind of usage that apple wants on their phones? Most phone commercials are absurd, including the one for the Xperia Z, which shows somebody jumping into ...
Performance in low-temperatures
Where I live, it gets so cold that the door-knob on the inside of the door routinely gets covered in ice / frost, how do you think this kind of device would fare in weather that is -20 to -40 below ?
Fangirls of the world rejoyce
You can now take selfies that are crystal clear, hundreds of them that look exactly the same as every single other one, and then post these high-resolution, large-sized pictures to the internet, using up more bandwidth, just so your friends can see the individual pores on your face.
Re: Looks good!
6.1 Inches, you can hold this in your hand I would say about 20+ minutes before your hand cramps up and you drop the phone. Seriously, try holding this for an extended period of time, you won't be able to unless you have massive hands, same problem with the Note III
I call huge BS also. The PS4 and One are much more powerful than what they are presently used for, also. They can push 4X individual HD streams in full 1080P, which is definatelty something this phone can not do.
No! Permanantly disable it? Why not do the exact same thing, but be able to reactivate it if you want, maybe with a password or encryption key of some kind that you could enter on a website? Lost revenue? If you use the kill switch you'll STILL have to make an insurance claim! Seems lost revenue would be $0. The Senate is pretty useless and should be abolished. These people very obviously don't live with the common people, and have ...
This is great !
I've always wondered what the average use of apps like Tapped out, and the Ookla speed test use. I'm gonna check this out as soon as I get home from work.
Re: No dude
You should be better informed. The Galaxy S II HD LTE sold by Bell does not have a physical button along the bottom of it. Also, the S II HD LTE is a totally different device than the S II. Different processor, screen, ram, gpu, etc. You can't compare the two phones. It's NOT a GS II Skyrocket sold by at&t, as that does not have an HD screen. Totally different phone.
