24% of iPhone users in the UK are too broke to fix it when they break the screen

0

24% of iPhone users in the UK are too broke to fix it when they break the screen. Probably because it cost so much to buy and use…they couldn’t even afford a case to protect it.
More interestingly, 57% of iPhone users in the UK break the screen at some point (most within the first three month), regardless or whether they have a case or not. Talk about a horrible design for a phone ;).

Wondering how smartphone users see each other?

I wouldn’t agree with all the stereotypes used here, but as it’s often the case with these sort of things, there is an element of truth to it ;).

Les campagnes d’extorsion de Logistep AG vont enfin prendre fin :)

0

Logistep AG, une société suisse vendant ses services à des lobbys dangereux (MPAA, RIAA), s’amusait à espionner les utilisateurs de réseau P2P et collectionnait les adresses IP des personnes qui téléchargeaient des fichiers protégés par les lois sur la propriété intellectuelle.

Une fois qu’ils avaient réussi à identifier à qui appartenaient les adresses IP, ils envoyaient des demandes de rançon aux résidents suisses. La plupart des gens recevant ces lettres paniquaient et payaient, mais tout ce cinéma va prendre fin.

Le tribunal fédéral a délibéré le 8 Septembre 2010 et les juges ont décidé de dénoncer et de poursuivre pénalement Logistep AG et de demander l’arrestation de son directeur dans les plus brefs délais.

Cela ne rend pas le téléchargement légal et d’autres moyens peuvent être mis en oeuvre pour arrêter les personnes qui violent les droits d’auteur, mais cela évitent les abus de sociétés de cowboys…

Antennagate: All that Apple managed to achieve at its press conference is to irritate other manufacturers

0

So…Apple is deleting all discussion threads about the antenna issue and still denies any problems with their design, even though, they started to try to hire antenna designers just before the official launch and they’re now giving away for free a rubber band to fix the non-issue.

On stage, this past Friday, Father Jobs, tried to convince its followers that the reception issue was in line with what people were experiencing with devices from other manufacturers, but the press and Consumer Reports didn’t buy it. Here is how Dave Nanian summarized the event: “So, in sum: there is no problem, all phones have this no problem, a case fixes this no problem, free case to fix your no problem. Got it!”

Somebody else didn’t buy it, the manufacturers that were dragged into Apple’s problem by Jobs. RIM, Nokia and HTC have all issued statements that they had designed antennas for long enough to know what they were doing.

At the end of the day, it’s just a phone (just not a very good one, more like a 3G iPod) and everybody is free to not buy it or return it (minus 10%) if they don’t like it. If it works for you and adds value to your life, then enjoy 🙂
