    Using the patent application as a
    guide, Apple appears to be making room on the iPhone for flash memory, which
    means an end to Apple's standoff with Adobe (ADBE) that's kept iPhones from
    easily viewing a plethora of Internet videos.

     

    Still, there was no reason to post this.  Enjoy your mug.

    That's the WTF the OP is referring to, I hope.

     Thanks morbiuswilters!!!

    And I hope you enjoy the Adobe flash memory when you'll buy your IPhone 🙂

    I figured it was, but there wasn't any real hint what the WTF was from the OP (other than the thread title), so I just posted it here so nobody had to read the entire article like I did.

    Not sure if this was sarcasm from you or what, but by The Mug is how we show our displeasure with a thread around here.  However, this probably isn't completely mug-worthy, so I'll nominate you for The Half-Mug instead.  To me the mistake in the article is obviously some kind of editing error that happened when a non-technical person was asked to work pieces of existing articles into this one.  I guess it could actually be that the writer had no clue what they were talking about, but that doesn't seem very likely.

    I'll be enjoying my vagina way more, as the only way I would buy an iPhone is if I lose my penis in an accident and the doctors end up turning me into a lady.

    The Half-Mug is precisely what it sounds like: a mug cut vertically into two pieces.  Obviously is is unable to contain any liquids which means it fails at even being a mug.

    Dammit, The Half-Mug is cut vertically!  Well, I guess the top half of a horizontally cut mug accomplishes the same thing, but I still don't have to like it.

    I'm really no good at this "Photoshop" thing, so I can't make my own.  However, I can verbally abuse people who make competing half-mugs.  My half-mug is the only true half-mug and followers of your half-mug shall be dipped in scalding hot ketchup until they accept my mug or are dead.

    My half-mugs. Let me show you them:

     Here's my entry:




  • Klein Stein Mug anyone?

    I should indeed have quoted from the article to avoid every one having to go through it. bstorer was so kind to post the correct quote, which I do think is WTF-worthy.

    These half-mugs look great btw and I accept it with pleasure for my first post ever on this forum. My future posts will be better.

    A half-mug cut vertically could still be used to hold liquids, if held at the right angle. So can a Klein stein, even if the decal says 0.00 (I know, I have one. I also have two half-Klein-bottles and even they could hold liquids) so if you want a mug that is unable to contain any liquids, bstorer's is the best idea.

    A true Klein bottle would be unable to hold any liquids. Unfortunately those are hard to get hold of, what with them being 4-dimensional 'n all.



  • @homsar said:

    Well, it doesn't hold the liquid inside the Klein bottle, or rather, it does, but only in the sense that the entire universe is inside the Klein bottle. but it does manage to hold liquid in one place, and I think the same would be true in four dimensions, especially considering that in four dimensions it would actually have one fewer hole. Just like how a properly shaped Möbius strip in three dimensions can still be used to hold a bunch of sticks together (or, in my case, hold two halves of a Klein bottle together.)

     Yes, but what about a Morbius strip?

    Do you need all jokes spelled out for you, or just the subtle ones?

    Perhaps OP thought the WTF of someone mistaking "flash memory" for something-to-do-with-Adobe-Flash would be so obvious that it didn't need explaining.

    @morbiuswilters said:

    (other than the thread title),

    Heh, you added that as an afterthought, didn't you, when you suddenly looked up at the title and realised it made the entire thing clear and you just hadn't been paying attention?

    @morbiuswilters said:

      Nobody else had to read the entire article anyway.  Only you.  Because you were so determined to fail to get the joke.



  • @PeriSoft said:

    a Morbius strip?

    That I'd rather not watch, certainly not if there were stick-holding involved.

    Obviously it was added as an afterthought, even though it was right in the middle of a sentence describing the lack of context.  I prefer my afterthoughts be middlethoughts.

    There was a joke?  Holy shit!  I just thought it was someone posting a minor editing mistake from a news website!

     

    Really, go back to trolling Slashdot or trying to get adolescent boys to email you inappropriate photos of themselves.

    Yep.  It was that kind of blindingly obvious.

    @morbiuswilters said:

    Nope,
    I didn't notice the title either.  I just RTFA'd and got it
    straight away.  I got the joke, you completely missed it - and you
    think that makes YOU some kind of genius and me retarded?

    Wow,
    have you never realised that, thanks to the magic of the cursor arrow
    key, it's possible to write out of order in a post?  You can go
    backward and forward editing it?  That makes it pretty easy to go
    and put afterthoughts in the middle of your text, yes.

    Look,
    I clearly haven't been plain enough: I'm calling shenanigans on your
    mugging.  You deliberately failed to
    get the joke because you're so keen to award the mug that your
    preconceptions override the evidence of your senses and prevent you
    from applying common sense and your understanding of plain ordinary
    English language.

    I
    have already commented on your inability to spot the very very
    obvious.  This is not some "minor editing mistake", this is a
    massive conceptual error by a person writing about a field they are
    ignorant of and flailing around way out of their depth.

    Morb would know, since he actually cares about the forums.

    You, OTOH, just show up once in a while to revive dead threads, make stupid posts that only YOU think are funny, and to flame regulars.

     

    You rarely read the actual thread and instead just insert your 'humor'.

    This is indeed not a minor editing mistake. It is the basis of some wild conclusions in the article, published on a reputed website. But seriously, you shouldn't start a flame war over this... I personally thought it was funny but I don't except others to feel the same way.



  • Heh. This "Adobe Flash Memory" reminds me of the heyday of the Iomega ZIP drive/cartridges. Remember those?

    I had a lot of friends that thought that somehow those cartridges had > 100Mb capacity, because they stored all your files in ZIP (as in PK-ZIP) format. Oops!

    TRWTF is that most people call flash memory "USB memory", up to the point that a local ISP is selling the "virtual USB" service which is actually something more akin to "online storage" service... you know, like Xdrive.

    What sarcasm did I miss?  I merely posted the relevent section of the massive article so everybody didn't have to go and search for it themselves.  I also pointed out that I feel it is most likely an editing mistake and not a big WTF.  You fucktards are the one who keep insisting I didn't "get it" when I clearly understood all along what the problem is.

    Why? The OP could not have been more deserving.

    A tech analyst who doesn't know the difference between flash and Flash qualifies as a WTF under the "gross incompetence" category.  This guy has been writing for years, for people like CNET and Z-D, it is astonishing that he can make such a fundamental category error.

    Considering I've been here longer than you and your main

    plus endless cut'n'pasted "don't quote the whole OP" reminders, I think
    you're in no position to criticise.  Taking a few weeks off doesn't make me any less of a "regular" than anyone else, but I do sometimes have more important things to do in my life than spend time posting on the forums.

    It comes as no surprise to me that you have a hard time detecting humour.  You oscillate wildly between po-faced FAQ-thumper and foul-mouthed flame warrior, which is indicative of your tendency to see the joke much better when it's you dishing it out than when it's anyone else.

    And you don't think it's possible this was a mistake made later on by an editor who was prepping the article for publishing?  See, CNN isn't your personal blog because 1) the posts aren't made directly by the authors and 2) people actually read it.

    Really, why in the fuck are you still posting here?  You threw some tantrum because I "didn't get" the "joke", even though I was the one who posted the actual fucking quote so everyone else could read it.  Thinking back, I don't think I've ever seen anything useful come out of your mouth.  In fact, I bet if we asked anyone who has ever known you they would say you're a dead-weight, worthless sack of shit.
