Stereoscopic BSOD!
Perhaps you haven't thought this one through fully...Apple makes the same amount of money whether you purchase your phone locked or unlocked. They want to sell as many phones as possible. So do you honestly think they spend their time and money locking phones down just for fun?In order to sell their phones at a competitive rate (have you checked what the cost of an unlocked, unsubsidized iPhone is), they've had to partner with the cellular service providers to give you a...
Or they rob me without a gun, don't bother killing me (because it's much more difficult and I don't feel it worthwhile to risk my life for a few bucks), I report it to the police, they find the people when they attempt to use my credit card (or steal my identity), and apprehend them without the need for lethal force (because they aren't armed for such a fight).
Yes, I guess you got me on that one. However, it's a bit of a jump to compare gated communities with privately-paid security firms created to protect a small group of people from the ills of society with political borders. They'd be more akin to the castles built to protect the aristocracy during medieval times.
My friend, that is why I would be far more interested to live in France than in the United States. I'm not sure it it's the education system or conditioning from the environment or what, but the overall outlook of many people in the United States seems to simply be that of fear and reaction (the level of discourse on news programs there makes me sick to my stomach).I have met a number of very interesting/thoughtful people in New York City and San Francisco, so I try not...
No, I'll just live in areas of the world with decent health care systems and controls on who gets armaments. That way I don't have to live life walled up in my gated community, driving around with my doors locked and windows rolled up, experiencing it all though a television screen/computer monitor, and be afraid to attend a live show or have a drink in the wrong part of town because the people there tend to be far more interesting than the ones who live in fear and...
That must explain why the crime rate is far higher in poverty-stricken areas than in the aforementioned gated communities...
lol. Life really is a Hollywood movie - some people are just born evil. We should find the DNA chain which identifies such people and take pre-emptive action against them. If you are willing to break out of your black and white thinking, then I will take the time to agree with you about the fact that, yes, we all make choices in life which affect the situation we end up in. However, I'd hope that you would be willing to admit that, in cases such as true mental illness...
wow... just wow. When the depth of response to something like this is simply "if someone does this, they need to be met with deadly force", or a joke, you know things are bad. Stay focused on the symptom (crime) and don't bother thinking about the root cause (high levels of poverty, untreated mental illness, all combined with an armed population). But hey, just keep building gated communities, private security armies, not daring to travel to certain areas of your city...
Not for true pro users (software developers, video/audio/graphics professionals, etc). They need as much power as they can get (CPU cores, memory speed, hard drive speed, etc) and so a MBA style laptop which skimps on specs in favour of size isn't going to cut it. That's what the "Pro" means in MBP -- using it for much more than just email and surfing the web. Now, the non-Pro MacBook line and the MBA line combining -- that I can see.
