Let's see here.... We have the Mac OS X, Windows 8.1, and the many distributions of Linux out there... So yeah, I think that the world can handle different ecosystems. The discussion about Android though, is that it is one distribution that has fragmented APIs with a poor upgrading policy. In reality, it is that policy that is causing the problem, not the API fragmentation. So, for example, if iOS could only be upgraded when new devices came out, we would be having this...
Actually, while the IP address can be tracked, that doesn't mean that it can be tracked to you. They could be in a public place, using a VPN, wardriving, using a mobile device, etc. All of that are items that can definitively hide your presence as far as IP address is going. That said, all I was saying is that they was claiming that if you have nothing to hide, you shouldn't worry about not being anonymous.  My stance is that the web was designed to be anonymous, even...
@Benjamin Frost, I believe @Tallest Skil was referring to the size of the drive: 320GB, not 320 units. That said, I have wondered why they are still keeping the classic iPod around.
 Ok, wait a second there. There is a very specific reason why this becomes relevant. The market share argument is invalid because Apple give a flying f&#@ about market share. Their business model doesn't depend on market share, and that is why that argument is invalid. Now, the "inverse" as you call it being fragmentation *IS* important, that being to developers and customers. I will prove this with a very specific argument that any developer can understand: The Browser...
I think it is time that the base storage goes to 32GB. The app sizes are getting bigger and bigger, and as a result, the more storage is needed.   I still think the layout is going to go down like this (w/ 2 year plan):   5C: (4" screen) 16GB - Free 5S: (4" screen) 16GB - $99 6: (4.7" screen) 32GB - $199, 64GB - $299, 128GB - $399 6: (5.5" screen) 32GB - $299, 64GB - $399, 128GB - $499   The only differing thing between the 6's is the screen size. Other than that...
Ok, first off you talk about anonymity as if it is wrong, but yet unless your actual name is tagyro, you are hiding under that same anonymity that you are complaining about. That said, the idea of the internet was that it was supposed to be anonymous. That you could be anyone, share your ideas freely without public persecution. I know some of you feel differently, and that is your right. However, if you feel that strongly about it; change your username to your actual...
 That's just nasty. Bad @Tallest Skil, very bad. Go to the chalk board and write "I will not eat people" 100 times....   Sorry, this discussion is getting very heated at times. Some good slap stick humor is in order....
That, however, is not what you originally said. While I agree that people can lie about their accomplishments and what they are qualified for (which, by the way, is also a very fun discussion ), there has to be some standard of measure to be able to make decisions of hiring. That is why qualifications matter. Not gender, not skin color, not eye color, not heritage: qualifications. That is the whole point right there, which people are qualified, based solely on experience...
 That is probably the most profound statement so far about the rioting. I agree with what you are saying, that because of all of the tension, it took just one misstep and you have a breakdown of law and order. @Nobodyy, my deepest apologies for what your town is going through right now. But that needs to be a lesson on what needs to happen. We need to come together as one collective group (regardless of gender, skin color, heritage, etc) and start treating each other...
Wait, what!? So, your response is that it is utopian bullsh*t? Let me tell you, as a person in the IT sector, I can tell you from first-hand experience that the problem isn't with the hiring practices (more often than not), it is with the pool of applicants (which is what this discussion first originated about: Apple). Your analogy about sports has no bearing on this discussion other to fan flames about a topic which needs cool, reasonable heads about it. Also, what the...
