 I went to T-mobile and they were markedly improved from where they had been in the past. Their temporary promotion has ended though and if they don't do something they will be at quite a disadvantage to this offer. They were offering 10 gigs for $100. That offer has expired and nothing has replaced it. So the same money gets you 1 gig per line for an effective 4 gigs for $100. You can bump up to 3 gigs per line for another $10 per line but that makes it 12 gigs for $140...
 Static and normal are not the same. Don't misread a sentence and then point fingers about why you are annoyed.
 You are correct in that most of us would label the science of knowing and predicting past and future science to be more of a proto-science at this stage. That doesn't mean people won't begrudge it the growing pains that all science goes through in refining itself with regard to models, conclusions, etc. However that isn't what has happened. This being treated as a solid hard science without outcomes that cannot be disputed when it is clearly far from that. Increasingly...
 Science is predictive. The predictions in the report haven't materialized. Reissuing them several times with every more alarming and strident language doesn't change that fact.
 Normally I'm the first one to knock down the "Music ain't what it used to be" argument so I can see why people are quick to react to that but you aren't saying that here. You are just saying this particular year hasn't been that great for releases and albums and with that I would totally agree. At the same time something needs to be done about the signal to noise ratio and the cost of music. You're willing to tolerate more noise at a lower price point aka a "B" grade...
Pebble has proven themselves a worthy competitor and are far from being a copycat. The e-ink screen along with multiple day battery life provides a completely different set of functions and addresses different priorities than the AppleWatch. I'm glad to see them still innovating, improving their value proposition and keeping Apple's feet to the fire. I already have my watch choice (Tomtom Multisport) but if I didn't I'd choose this before the AppleWatch.
 Collaborating might be too strong a word. More like endorsing the status quo established by a few because it is lazy, easy and the money is good. Not at all related but this week Apple has been dealing with #bendgate which was established by one guy with a YouTube channel. In about two days it just became a "fact" because one guy bent one phone on a video. In part it is established so easily because a lot of syndicated newsfeed services added it to their feed. A lot of...
I didn't defend the smaller screen size because Apple was smaller than competitors. I am very much a one handed iPhone user and prefer smaller sizes. Older posts on here have me berating the iPhone before I owned it for being so much LARGER than my LG Dare. Even now I am upset about the fact that the best camera is only available in the 6+.   I just upgraded to the iPhone 5S purchased inexpensively from an upgrading and new iPhone 6 owner. I still love the size. I'd love...
 The regulatory response wasn't related to the product being subpar and certainly wasn't related to lack of effort by Apple with regard to dealing with the regulatory agency. Apple has experience in all these matters. Are you suggesting that Apple didn't submit paperwork, the phone to testing or some other aspect of approval? Are you suggesting it is Apple's fault they didn't get approval on time? Apple doesn't need approval when they know the phones will get their anyway....
 They've sold in China before so if you REALLY think this is about regulatory approval not being granted because Apple didn't meet timelines with regard to completing tests or submitting paperwork then you need to wake up to the real world.  This was about favors, bribes and bluffs. Apple called the bluff. Millions of phones are being smuggled into to customers who desire them. Now the state will quickly and magically find a quick way to grant approval so as not to tick...
