I had never seen a TV display that was OLED until a couple of weeks ago. An LG 50" display in 1080p was available for $2000. It was the best Hi-Def picture I have ever seen in my life. LCD and the best LED looks like utter crap in comparison. I like it better than 4K LEDs and/or plasmas. I never cared about 3D, a gimmick, I was attracted to 4K, but never enough to pull the trigger; this is the real deal. Beautiful.    I'm just waiting for it to come down in price. First...
Since I live back from the street about 75 feet, there is a horrendous problem with reception, which was only cured by getting a microcell or whatever they call them. So for the last three or four years, I've been using wifi calling, and paying a monthly fee. I phoned in about when the wifi calling was going to happen, and they said, so-ooo-on, rather vaguely. Well, given that, why am I still paying a charge for this? Silence on the line for a minute or so, and the monthly...
I have been using the betas since Yosemite, and for me, it always starts great, and then Safari goes bonkers and crashes. Inexplicably slow. Then a new version comes along and everything's great for a few days.
I ran OS 7.5.5 on an old SE/30. It was no problem at all. It was only when the Internet came around that I had to lose the SE/30 because it didn't even have grayscale. I could see some pages in the browser, but any color and I was dead. 
Also, me again, when is a major carrier -- or maybe a municipality? -- put up the Artemis system? Instead of four or five towers costing millions of dollars apiece, you have hundreds of little things the size of stereo speakers on the top of all the tallest building. You receive signals from 3 or 4 transmitters at the same time, and the interference patterns creat "pcells", personalized reception that goes with you. 50,000 people in a stadium could be wathing 50,000...
They all limit bandwidth. My original, Steve-Jobs negotiated AT&T Unlimited plan costs $50 plus financing for the phone. Never seen it slow down, even when I go over 6 or 7 GB a month.
I'm running 8.4. It's pretty ready.
Google AND Android. Yikes. Like their search engine. Not much else.
Yes, you know, if you really want to make a case for slavery, there is support you can find in the Bible. The issue of slavery is why the Southern Baptists split off from the Baptist Church. Later, many preachers were supporters of segregation. They felt there were religious grounds against interracial marriages.    Some religions refuse to treat their sick children with something their religion says is immoral. Or they won't allow blood transfusions, things like that....
We've been over this same ground with integration of public facilities. If a black person comes in to your restaurant, and he has the money, and he's not being loud or screaming profanities -- that's what you could object to, behavior -- the merchant is legally obligated to sell that coke or that meal. Not to do that is discrimination. The baker or florist for a wedding -- that's the thing we're talking about -- are not in the religious part of wedding practices. Wedding...
