That's what I'm saying, people have limited freedom. You'll often hear people in Western societies say that we can say things in the West because we have freedom of speech when what they should say is we have freer or less restrictive speech, which isn't the same thing.You can say anything you want, except anything deemed overly hateful, libellous, defamatory, inciteful, racist, sexist or obscene. The exceptions in the last part negate the use of 'anything you want'.Some...
This should work ok:http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Mini-DisplayPort-Adapter-Cable/dp/B002XVYZ82They won't do a major update until they can ride the design out for a few years. They have to go all-in with Retina and the tech needs to catch up.As far as the adjustment goes, I would bet most of their sales aren't going to iMac users given that they have a built-in large display. I'd expect them to be to laptop, Mini and Mac Pro users for the most part (which combined make...
When the beliefs are shared in places like Africa or in schools, it's imposing that belief on others and when it has known destructive effects such as furthering the prevalence of AIDS or teen pregnancy then it's harmful:Surely the harm it causes contradicts the other parts of religious text that say to care for others. Some religious people believe that these harmful outcomes are delivered by God:http://christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-f020.html"it seems more than...
The only distinction you make there is between people following up on what you say or not. With the amount of followup attacks that have been mounting in past instances, law enforcement is actually prosecuting people without there being actual...
It doesn't look like they're shipping yet. They were supposed to be out in December but the current shipping is 3-5 weeks so maybe people will start getting them later in the month to be able to test them out. They use two internal panels so it's really like getting two displays. They should work on Macs with dual TB ports but we'll only know if someone tries them out. It wouldn't be a suitable alternative for Macbook Air owners nor Mac Mini owners nor any other models...
You seem to agree that the followers of Christianity surrender their personal control to the authority of the texts they read, which are handed down by human beings wishing to control them. What you are calling God is an abstraction of controlling humans who invented the religion. The reason for the abstraction is there's no accountability. Religious people use this to absolve themselves of personal...
The new Spotlight is almost a step in that direction. When you think about it, a search box should be more integral to an OS and it should abstract a search engine because you might want to find a video on Vimeo, Youtube, metacafe but the search engine controls the ranking rather than each individual site. What a search box would do is that when you type in a search for a video, it would submit a search to the most popular video sites and choose the best results from each...
Lightning is still the thinnest port. USB-A and TB are 4.5mm tall, 3.5mm jack is obviously 3.5mm, USB-C is 2.5mm, Lightning is 1.7mm.A large part of the bulk in the Air is from the bulge at the bottom:It's mainly USB-A taking up the space in the middle part, TB isn't all that big - they can tighten it up but really get rid of the bulge at the base and make the display part a bit thinner.Removing TB would be more likely on an ARM device. Same deal with powering over USB C....
What would a 6th gen iPod Touch do that the 2012 5th gen doesn't do as a music player?Apple already bought a streaming service and a headphone manufacturer.http://recode.net/2014/05/28/tim-cook-explains-why-apple-is-buying-beats-qa/"So we’ve always loved music and believed in the power of it and believed that it could transcend language, culture and bring people together and produce emotions and deep feelings that other things can’t. And we’ve stood at the intersection of...
You don't have to have the same point of view to support the cause. The main point is that killing someone in response is not acceptable. Kind of like saying I don't agree with what you're saying but I'll defend your right to say it.Apple wouldn't publish the cartoons themselves just as they wouldn't publish pornography but they would defend the rights of others to fair judgement over the content, which would never result in the loss of life.We shouldn't be under any...
