  1. It’s official: MS “Redmond, Start Your Photocopiers” Banners out, Google “Mountain View, Photocopiers on OT!” Banners in!

    Meh… don’t sound so great. Apple will come up with something better…

    Or add your Google Banner and what it should say…

  2. I hope Steve does not result to name calling and being crass like Google was. Hopefully, he will take some time to “educate” his opponents about ‘open/closed’ though. I’m growing very tired of this argument.

    Can’t wait for 4.0! Here’s to having a great WWDC!

  3. Are you taking the piss, is usualy followed by a Liverpool kiss.

    “Are google taking the piss.” they most certainly are.

    @Lotus Eleven
    I agree … I was just being flippent above.

  4. UK English: “Taking the piss” = “Being rude / insolent”. Usually in the form of an aggressive question: “Are you taking the piss, or what?” I think it the same in AUS/NZ.

    Also used in the form, “To take the piss out of someone / something”: “Are you trying to take the piss out of me?”

    cf “Pissed” = “Annoyed/angry” (US) and “Pissed” = “Drunk” (UK), but “Pissed off” = “”annoyed/angry” (in both US and UK English).

  5. I have only known Steve to take an onstage potshot at a specific competitor once, being the response to Dell’s SIAGTMBTTI remark.

    I think we’ve got a turbocharged, 4G, Apple-chip, iPhone in CDMA or GSM, adding Verizon at least. Everyone else: you are skating to where the puck was.
