  While I understand your frustration, please understand that there are two connections at play: your connection (which has a high download speed, and is only one connection) and AI's connection (which is more than likely a shared connection with thousands of individual connections all pummeling their server). That said, some basic optimizations is something they should have done to make sure page loads are as fast as possible. --- Slight Addendum --- Ok, after reviewing...
 There, fixed that for you.  Joking aside, Samescum is in a serious world of hurt right now. Their brand has been taking a beating because they are showing that they don't know which direction they are going. Six iterations of Galaxy Gear in over a year. They have so many "smart" phones out there, no one is really sure which is the new one and which is not. Then you have these carriers that keep promoting Galaxy IIIs as new phones for free, further diluting their...
Seriously, you are squabbling over semantics? Girl : Woman is to Boy : Man. In other words, they are the same thing. I have no problems with females in general, and I make a point to treat them either the same or better than our male counterparts. And while your statement is correct (we do live in a male dominated society), I know that my stance is not so. I want a purely equal environment, which was the point of my statement (which you apparently glossed over and found...
Normally I skip over comments like this, but this struck a nerve with me. If you were to switch the comment around, and it was a girl that said that about men dipped in chocolate, I can almost bet money nobody would jump up and down saying that was sexism. If anything, it is natural for the opposite sex (and sometimes same sex, not ruling anything out) to objectify and to fantasize about the gender of their choice. His comment was at best benign. Now, if he turned around...
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...
