Eh, it has its plusses, but has its minuses too.
Do you honestly think that banning (or attempts to ban) the use of bitcoin is going to stop at Russia? I'm sorry, but it's almost certainly going to get worse before it gets better.Germany has deemed it worthy of regulation and taxation, but it will be legitimized as part of the process. I don't think attempts to regulatie & tax it will stop at just Germany, either.Also: US regarded at least *this* Bitcoin exchange being regarded as an unlicensed money transmitting...
Huh? I didn't think it was obscure information.Russia banned the use if bitcoin. It sounds like Germany's making steps to regulate.There's been a few arrests for Bitcoin exchange operators, the most high profile being the operator of Silk Road.If it's really hypocrisy, are PayPal & Square still on the App Store?
You've previously suggested that 64 bit was pointless on the 5s, it's not, it does more than just extend memory addressing. That's my complaint on what you said. Now, it seems you're saying otherwise.64 bit wasn't revolutionary when it hit personal computers either. That's not always the point in changing technologies. The point is to make improvements. Expecting revolutionary on every product iteration is wholly unrealistic.
I don't know how The Economist has become an authority on computer engineering. Maybe IEEE Spectrum will become a source of information on macro economics.I suppose you'll insist that more registers, wider registers, and other ISA changes have nothing to do with anything.
Huh. Pro-establishment but otherwise anti-success. They weren't always the establishment, if I recall, they beat out some home-grown players in the UK market getting to that status.
I get the anti-elitist sentiment, there's something to that, though even just a neutral statement of "my computer doesn't have that problem" can seem elitist to someone suffering with a device that has X problem.How do some of those sentiments work when Microsoft, Intel & AMD are companies of a very US origin? Do people just ignore that? At least the first two companies are also very successful as well.
Well yeah, that's the concern. I think he's willing to do what he has to to make a buck, even if it's at the expense of those he pretends to ally.
To what end though? He's got considerable baggage, it helps to be wary of what his exact intentions are.
Rightly or wrongly, governments are banning Bitcoin and prosecuting Bitcoin exchange operators, among other things. It's more likely that Apple is trying to stay on the right side of the law(s).
