Tim Cook has presided over the greatest DROP in Apple product quality I've noticed since the second Jobs era began. I run into more frustrating bugs in Apple products than I ever had before, and while I used to believe that "It Just Works" was a slogan that you could truly use to describe the experience of using Apple gear (for the most part...no company or product is perfect), that's no longer remotely true. Apple has become sloppy, and very slow at addressing its...
Typical liberal idea of "doing good" which often tends to fall very short of intentions (much shorter than other means of doing good available).   Tim has a billion dollars (and many other former middle-class Apple employees are wealthy too, not to mention partners like developers) thanks to a for-profit company that created vast amounts of wealth by creating commercial products that had to compete effectively in a free market, and that made millions of human lives...
Just curious which cargo van? I love those nv1500s. A little too big for my purposes but cool vans.
Absolutely. A tiny little country surrounded by hostile neighbors all wanting to see it dead, and yet it:   * Successfully defends itself when group attacked by its neighbors since its founding.  * Actually manages to expand its territory in the face of multiple enemies trying to destroy it, creating a buffer zone for itself * Makes the right decision in allying itself with the U.S. instead of the Soviet Union (many Arab countries threw their lots in with the Soviets...
Wow, I wasn't expecting all this Appleinsider venom directed at unions.......it's wonderful! Gives me hope for civilization...

Good idea, I'll try that, thanks!
I was so ready to move from Alfred to using spotlight instead and then realized that Spotlight can't issue commands to Sleep or Restart the computer. So Alfred it is.
I just experienced this bug myself. Booted up a 2013 Mac Pro this morning, and it couldn't find my Apple bluetooth mouse. Fortunately, it did find my Apple trackpad, so I was able to go to System Preferences and manually find the mouse. 
Passbook keeps crashing when I try to take a picture of my credit card, so I had to enter them manually. Might try to restore my phone to fix that.    My Chase Visa cards were accepted by Passbook, except a MasterCard. Apparently, Apple Pay only works with Chase Visas, not MCs.    Looking forward to trying this out at a nearby Radio Shack, Macdonalds or Subway.
