 Unless someone here wants to define it otherwise, 'gay' is a lifestyle choice. And if anyone like myself wants to bring up particular issues that may not sit well with your prepared clichés about murdered babies and religious intolerance then I'm met with a torrent of anger. Which says more about you than it does about me.
I'm am having a bit of difficulty in trying to work out what it is that you are trying to say. 'Thinking' is what I do, I can't help it. As the great physicist Richard Feynman says, "I can't help thinking, I get a kick out of it". I have a love of clarity because without clarity there is no understanding and without understanding there is no knowledge. This necessarily requires precision with words. Sometimes it's important other times less so, depending on what is being...
Especially as he was recently outed a month or so ago on a news network and everybody had conniptions about it.
Being an obviously articulate and intelligent person, and now that he has decided to announce to the world his 'pride' at being 'gay', I would be extremely interested for Mr Cook to define what 'being gay' actually means in real terms. For men, does it mean preferring a man as a sexual partner? Does sex have to be involved, and is it necessary for a new category of 'marriage' to be invented, as opposed to simply having a 'gay' relationship recognised as having the same...
But it was a copy cat, geddit?
I think these sorts of comments completely and utterly miss the point of the Apple watch, the sports Apple watch with the plastic bands will be competing with the msft band, and maybe not do to well or only do OK, but the other watches in Apple's collection are a completely different category of product, even though they can perform similar functions they are aimed at being body jewellery. Not my cup of tea, I don't even wear a ring but no other smart watch type object...
And there's the rub, they *cannot* respond due to the nature of the product, and therefore the industry will be collectively shitting themselves. Once Apple reached a certain size and power the resources that they are able to summon will mean they will be pulling away at an ever increasing pace. Giant conglomerations like Samsung are going to have to break apart into completely separate divisions or other companies are going to have to merge their resources. It's clear...
They say the similarity is phonetic but iFon would be pronounced to rh yme with "gone" in the absence of any diacritical marks. They needed "iFone" to give this one legs EDIT: I had to add a space in "rh yme" to stop VagLink from linking to a shopping site. This looks like a worrying new direction for appleinsider.
That 'grand opening' sign is a bit sad. But I'm not surprised that a store is willing to accept payment. One time I was in the Perth casino and I threw a $200 legal tender gold coin on the table and they refused to accept it until I called the pit boss down for an explanation as to why a casino would illegally refuse cash.
 How trite. I'm sure that phones themselves will cease to exist in 100 years, replaced by a technology that would seem like magic today but by then Apple will be at the forefront of this new technology that replaced phones. Or perhaps you meant further into the future when the Sun expands into a red giant and envelopes the Earth in its outer atmosphere.
