If anything Apple has been more conservative about retiring older products since Tim Cook took over. Sometimes they keep around multiple generations of older products whereas in the past they would have just replaced the current one with the new one, or kept 2 generations at most. I don't think this report is very likely.
This study by Wendy M. Williams and Stephen J. Ceci from Cornell University found that, in STEM hiring in academia at least, the opposite is true. Women are typically hired 2:1 over men, when normalizing for qualifications and lifestyle.  http://www.pnas.org/content/112/17/5360.full   "The underrepresentation of women in academic science is typically attributed, both in scientific literature and in the media, to sexist hiring. Here we report five hiring experiments in...
Thank you for that picture of socialism as it exists in your imagination, now here is socialism in reality. Every policy the socialists advocate: more pensions, sure. More healthcare, sure. Shorter work hours? Sure. Every policy socialists advocate they did.  I believe it's possible to have social programs for the needy.

Being a successful artist requires being popular with teenagers, but teenage life is all about rebellion and sticking it to the man. If these artists (such as Drake) are too closely associated with big business (in this case Apple) the kids will think they are sell outs. In which case exclusivity is neither here nor there. When signing a business deal, you ignore the wider context to the detriment of the financial outcome.
Has anyone tried it? I heard graphics are faster.
 Money. Lots of talking about money. :)
A lot of individual news sites already are aggregators, e.g. all the Mac sites repost each other's stories, due to the pressures of the 24 hour news cycle and the desire to get clicks. And the general (non-tech) media all post a lot of the same wire stories as each other, same exact wording, taken from AP or Reuters, and just add some of their own analysis/opinion. And if that fails you, following your favorite sites' Twitter feeds creates a single aggreated stream. A...
Do people think this radio station is going to last? I thought the youth of today got their music recommendations from friends and social media not DJs.
