 The reality is that laws cannot overcome basic rights. The ruling for this decision is the same as that which supports gay marriage, that to have your rights denied, the government must have a rational basis for their actions that meets a strict scrutiny review. Religion is a fundamental right. It is the same as speech, and voting. It doesn't get abridged just because you say so. This isn't about birth control. Even after this decision Hobby Lobby pays for 16 different...
 Storing them isn't the same as being able to search what is stored and get turn by turn directions. Google off-line storage doesn't do this. It allows you to scroll around and still look at an overhead version of the map. Nokia Here maps allow you to still do off-line searches and get turn by turn directions.
 The rest I'm not going to deal with because you have to meet a minimum threshold to be worth the time of dealing with. You've drawn the exact opposite conclusion of the worlds. The link shows race and the concept of it evolving over time and being applied in a number of contexts. You ignore it all and repeat yourself. Have a nice day! 
Apple could really hurt Google by pulling a Nokia and allowing you to download and store complete maps for states, countries, etc. Google has to keep you connected because they want to sell you ads. Apple can cater to the fact that you might be a world traveler who doesn't want to use up all your data access when roaming by downloading map results.
I like the new banners. The shots are very attractive and we need a bit more color in our lives sometimes. Early Apple stores seemed to have floor that were a wood finish from what I recall and now the larger stores all seem to have a treated concrete. As others have noted that just leave one feeling cold so the photos really do liven up the place.
 Stop trolling. The company doesn't have the religious views. The owners have them and are being mandated to take private actions with their private company. The government should do it's job and it's job is to provide contraception if that is what it decrees the population should have rather than mandating a company take up the slack for them. The government doesn't mandate you hire security for your employees to protect their home. It doesn't mandate they build you...
 Sorry but to be polite, you are as wrong as can be on the matter. Race is a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation. First used to refer to speakers of a common language and then to denote national affiliations, in the 17th century, people began to use the term to relate to observable physical traits....
 I cited a few cases above with regard to how they turned out. The point is that it doesn't really matter how it turned out as long as it is applied both ways. Don't tell someone to take their ball and then go home, but then declare they can't have the ball because they are hateful. I'll note your own hypocrisy on this below.  Well as I noted in another post, "race" is considered different things by different people. If you went to an Englishman as an Irishman and declared...
 Haven't always followed up on all of them. Just part of the daily browsing.....however searches turn up the following... The firefighters won and have had the verdict upheld. If there is more recent news you can dig for it. The Bible's being passed out initially lost but has won on appeal. I'd bet there is still more action waiting. There is a new lawsuit being threatened regarding the St. Patrick's parade. I don't know the particulars of the old one.
 Actually there are lots of clear examples of people being stopped. There are lawsuits for officers participating in a St. Patrick's Day parade considered to be anti-gay from what I recall. There was also a lawsuit where four firefighters were ordered to participate in a gay pride parade and declared they were sexually harassed. There have also been lawsuits by people wanting to hand out Bibles or respectfully protest who have been stopped. These aren't what if scenarios....
