      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. The market share of the iOS system has continued to fall according to IDC. "Without a new product launch almost a year ago Apple's market share from the competition got massive pressure", IDC program manager Ryan Reith said about their most recent study. With 187,4 million units sold, the Android's share climbed in the second quarter to 79.3 percent. 10.2 Percentage points were more than a year ago. Apple's share fell, however, from 16.6% to 13.2% - so a minus 3.4 percentage points. That may deceive but not over it, that Apple still its sales of 26 million to 31.2 million units increased. That nevertheless the market share was declining, is because that the overall market by 156,2 million on 236,4 million systems by 51.3 percent, has grown. iOS and Android now make 92.5 per cent of the world market. The rest are divided at Windows phone (3.7 percent), BlackBerry (2.9 percent), Linux (0.8 per cent) and Symbian (0.2 per cent). US subscribers: Android share of much lower ComScore Marketing Agency published figures on the American Smartphone subscribers in parallel. With 91.9 percent, is the total proportion of Android and iOS only slightly smaller than their global share in the United States. But there are significant differences in the distribution of the individual systems. So Android end of June in the United States had accounted for 52 per cent - which was unchanged compared to March 2013. The iOS share improved, however, slightly from 39% to 39.9%. With Windows phone, there was still a slight increase of 3.0% to 3.1%. Downhill was, however, BlackBerry and Symbian. Apple: Not popular with early adopters In addition to the point raised by IDC, that Apple has brought nothing new to the market the iPhone for almost a year, there could be also another influence factor. So, all things digital reported that Apple's iPhone at the new entrants into the Smartphone usage is not particularly popular. The report refers to an investigation by consumer intelligence research partner, that 50 percent of American iPhone owners decide again for an iPhone, but only less than one-third of the new entrants want an iPhone. At Samsung, the value with each 30 percent is about par. In HTC, both groups keep the balance. However, there is a clear preference for those who buy a Smartphone for the first time at LG and the other party.
