This is possibly the worst analogy I've ever seen. Let's start with the plainly obvious: reading a magazine is different to listening to music. Secondly, you have mistakenly compared a single magazine to a collection of albums. For your analogy to make sense, I would have to pick up two hundred magazines in one go and then try to flip through them. A cumbersome activity that wouldn't find me the magazine I wanted as quickly as going to the rack and picking it out – and...
You asked '100 people' ? :-DEven if you weren't lying, that's not a very large sample, considering the number of people who are running it.And how did you frame the question of your imaginary poll ?Did you ask, 'What do you think of IOS7?'Or was it more along the lines of. 'IOS7 is really bad, don'tcha think?'
 It's called 'Browettism', or an inability to adjust your thinking. It was named after a retail director who, for a short time, was put in charge of one of the world's most profitable retail chains, and then tried to turn into a bargain basement outfit because that's what he was used and that's how he knew things worked.The same mentality applies to analysts. They've been educated to believe that market-share is king and everything else (like profits) is just a throwaway...
 Yes, I miss real IT news ... 
 It's unlikely that Apple will say how many 5c models they've sold, so we'll always be stuck with analysts' guesswork. Personally, I don't see a problem; if more people are buying the 5s then the 5c has done its job.
First post from a 'LongTimeMacFan'?Log out and register again, only this time try a user name that doesn't scream 'TRRRROLLLLLL'.
Right, now are some people talking about an app crashing several times a week, or the actual phone crashing? App crashes I don't have a problem with. The phone falling over is a different thing entirely.
Nope, I think she did the right thing here.For one thing, Google has already been found guilty and fined for this particular crime.This is another case of scummy lawyers finding people to fight a frivolous lawsuit, in the hope that The company they're suing will just hand over a pot of cash to make them go away. Most of the time, the lawyers take most of the money anyway.She is wrong that no harm was done, but Google has already paid for that.
 Wrong again. Last Gmail outage was less than four weeks ago; about ten million people affected. http://www.newsfactor.com/news/Gmail-Down-12-Hours--Google-Sorry/story.xhtml?story_id=001000001X83 These services go down all the time, but most people don't notice because the outage usually affects a small proportion of users. And most outages go unreported – except Apple's of course which, oddly enough, are most often reported here in order to get the troll numbers up.  
 Exactly. They mistakenly believed that Apple would cave and allow them to install whatever they wanted on the iPhone. So instead of just taking the deal (like everyone else) they just sat back and watched their customers leave.
