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.
Well, I'm not even American, so I'm not trying to gloat at all. And I really could care less about the comings and goings of corporate entities - they have no intrinsic value in my world other than providing a means for technological creativity and innovation (where my real interest lies) to be distributed to the world.My appreciation for Mr. Jobs only comes from the fact that, unlike the CEOs of most corporate entities, he truly does seem to share the same passion for...
I'm just curious -- why are you so excited for a world where mediocrity and imitation are valued above innovation and quality? Is it simply because your investment portfolio sits in such companies?
These two quotes I think are key as to why Apple has climbed back to the top and why they don't have to lower themselves to the level of almost everyone else in the industry to sell products: they actually spend the money and time (R&D) required to design products that people love and want to buy. As opposed to having to undercut and/or partner with other companies to force your product to be bundled with theirs (and then hoping that people just don't care enough to look...
But there is the /date sort option right at the top of the Blekko search results page, which seems to be what you're looking for. Then again, you can do the same on Google (get the results sorted by date using the options under "Any Time" on the left side) and it will even give you live updates as newer search results come in. I tested with AAPL and it updated the search results about 6 times in 30 seconds today.
I remember well my reactions both to seeing the BlackBerry in 2004, and the iPhone in 2007... BlackBerry: It looks like a cell phone that does email iPhone: It looks like a touchscreen computer that's a cell phone The idea of a cell phone that does email didn't really appeal to me because I really hated cell phones. The comment I had about cell phones at the time was: "you get charged for something every time you press a damn button on them". Plus, with all of the...
There seem to be a lot of people who think that products are designed and developed by the abstract entity known as "a company". What's scarier though is when those people are actually running companies (into the ground).
I'm in the same situation (have old iPhones with no SIM cards for them). I just hacktivate the old iPhones when I upgrade the firmware on them (no jailbreak, just fake activation).
