 Agreed -- it has been a scare tactic used in various forms in attempts to control/manipulate society and procreation for centuries. I just had an in-depth discussion with a friend of mine working in the food & agriculture industry the other day discussing the merits of cricket farming.  Near zero energy usage and very little land required to provide a sustainable food source.  As you stated: innovate and adapt.
To the naysayers, I'd argue that it's about giving people a choice as to when they want to have a family.   That said, I do agree that those who choose to have a family earlier in life should also be given an option for daycare services and facilities to get back to a more work/life balanced career later on.  It should work both ways and not be biased towards life choices which also happen to be more beneficial for the employer.
 Oh, I'm a software guy too.  I'm just speaking from experience of having to support shoddy hardware. And DuckDuckGo is a service, so it's a bit irrelevant here because they can choose the hardware their service runs on (aside from being at the mercy of shoddy browsers).
 Or duckduckgo it...  "People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware".  Otherwise you're at the mercy of forever having to support lowest common denominator/lowest bidder hardware.
Interesting that a new version of OS X Server was also released today, but it's still a developer preview.
 Can you put a sticker on your forehead that says: not made to carry on rational conversations?
 Every phone that guy tested bent under extreme force.  And while they didn't completely bend out of shape like the iPhone 6 Plus, the test was hardly scientific because the iPhone he showed was pre-bent, he didn't bend the other phones in the same spot, and it's impossible to tell if he used the exact same amount of force on all of them.  And some of the other phones started to make cracking sounds when he bent them, which likely indicated internal damage of some sort...
 Yup.  It'll help get major exposure for whatever they're working on.  Plus U2 has deep connections in the industry, so it'll help get the tech heads at Apple connected with the audio heads.  Indeed.  With the Beats acquisition and increased ties with U2, they'll pretty much have one or two degrees of separation from anyone in the music business.  All pointing to something big.
If you have a lot of content on your device, then the Genius Bar isn't going to help (they won't wipe your content for you). If you have everything backed up to iCloud, then you should be able to wipe your content, upgrade, and then let iCloud restore it for you.  Not the nicest upgrade experience, but it works.  Otherwise iTunes is the way to go.
 I had the same laugh as well. However, purely technical people who only look at compression, bitrate, algorithms, and the like are also missing the point.  There is a real experience of hearing a live band that we're trying to recreate.  The positioning of the microphones, the type of microphones used, your position relative to the speakers, open air/closed auditorium/recording studio, the shape of the auditorium/studio, etc, etc.  It takes someone who has years of...
