And just what is fair? Who gets to decide what "fair" is? My opinion, being a 34-year-old from a middle class family with a middle class income, is that everyone should pay the same percent of income in taxes. Many Americans, including the president, think that "fair" means the rich should pay a much higher percentage than others. However these same people who scream "fair share" on TV never explain what it really means or why fair and equal aren't the same when it...
I've had the issue of it saying "done" when the transaction didn't process at Walgreens and McDonalds multiple times even using the same terminal that had been problem free a couple days before.   Now that I'm back in Europe I've used it successfully at least 8 times and only had once where it didn't work.  In that one case I then pulled out my contactless (NFC) debit card and it worked without problem, so it doesn't seem to just be an issue with the terminal.   My...
is anyone else worried about the strong dollar really hammering the value of overseas sales? The dollar has appreciated about 30% year over year on the Euro and most other European currencies. Apple hasn't raised their hardware prices much it doesn't seem. If they're taking the full brunt of the currency fluctuation then their gross margins could really be affected. I'm not selling any shares, but I could see this limiting the gains made by moving more iPhones.
How is Scandinavia more socialist than Greece?  You're right that in general the issues aren't related to socialism itself, but rather a totally different mindset/attitude/worldview of the people in northern Europe as opposed to southern/Mediterranean Europe.
Which means that in nearly all such cases the "medicine" isn't actually medicine and fails it's clinical trials.But mainly why not back up your point with something supportive of your claim that the placebo effect is in fact real? Something as simple as WebMd. http://www.m.webmd.com/pain-management/what-is-the-placebo-effectThe laziness of our trolls is really getting out of hand on AI.
That's all well and good, but the disputed thesis is that healthy eating can cure cancer. As far as I'm aware there is precisely zero scientific support for such a claim.
While I think unlimited should be standard for land connections, how on earth do you bump up on 300gb a month?? That's 10gb downloaded per day. I didn't realize it was possible to consume that much data.
Why? Drunk driving accidents have dropped by nearly 20% since it entered several markets over the last couple years. The vast majority of the time it's cheaper/faster/cleaner than a taxi. Do you have stock in taxi companies?
Just got back to Europe after 7 months in the States and have used Apple Pay (with American credit cards of course) 6 times in 2 days all at different types of stores.     NFC is basically ubiquitous here.  Even the mom & pop stores have NFC enabled credit card terminals.  Given the amazingly widespread deployment of the technology in central Europe (a former communist country at that) it almost seems laughable that an article is needed to tout the acceptance of the same...
Weren't their sales something like $3 billion in 2013 with crazy high margins? How is the hardware side only worth 500 million?
