 Ha! Indeed. Hard to believe how small it was. And my hard drive was 70MB. MB.
Wall Street must secretly hate Apple. No, they won't say it while Apple is the most successful company in modern times by many measures, but consider what Wall Street did to JetBlue: analysts tearing it down for “overly brand-conscious and customer-focused" service. They explicitly wanted JetBlue to be as miserable a customer experience as other airlines so it would be more profitable.   What Wall Street wants is for companies to extract maximum profit by making products...
I don't remember 7.5.5 being too bad on a Mac Plus maxed out with 4GB RAM and a SCSI hard drive. 7.5.5 was released over 10 years after the Mac Plus was introduced and nearly 6 years after it had been discontinued. I don't know if any subsequent model was supported that long.
All of you defending suspicion-less searches and unpaid time are real pushovers. I guess if the standards for human decency are lowered on a massive enough scale, abuse becomes not only acceptable, but it also becomes unacceptable to question or challenge it.   In my two decades of employment I've never been drug tested or had my possessions searched. I'm not going to entrust my employment to someone who doesn't trust me and treat me as someone who is equally committed...
Mandating government backdoors for encryption would be a nightmare. Consider the globalization of the industry. If the U.S. requires products to have a backdoor key, of course other countries will want versions of the product that do NOT have the U.S. government backdoor but have a backdoor for their own government. How and where could products could be manufactured with trust intact for customers worldwide?
Hopefully the same system requirements. It would be ironic if a release intended mainly to clean things up and improve performance left out the Macs that need it the most.
This could inspire someone to develop an app for controlling service animals with Taptic Engine cues or alert tones.
HBO doesn't show "porn" with actual graphic sex acts on screen because there might still be a prosecutor in some backwoods county somewhere that would prosecute the local cable company for obscenity.
Tim Cook is liberal, Carly Fiorina is conservative; therefore fairness requires that Fiorina must be afforded the same respect Tim Cook is. It does not matter how stupid and regressive Republican policies and politicians often are; we have a two-party system, red states and blue states, and whatever Republicans put forward as their best must be graded on a curve to be equally regarded as the best that Democrats have to offer. Any discussion of Fiorina's flaws as HP CEO...
In October liability for fraudulent card-swipe-with-signature transactions shifts from banks to merchants who have not upgraded. Some won't change till then.
