I think Tim would take it in his stride, he's a fitness guy - he probably takes cold showers every day at 4:30am. Bill Gates on the other hand is a dweed. Here's him getting hit with a pie:I love the newscaster's serious tone: "no word on the motive for this attack". Is hilarity a suitable motive?The people donating could of course just give the cash but it's to encourage other people to join in. Giving cash is boring and it's why cash isn't usually regarded as a good...
This was before the Retina model, which is thinner and cooler. The Retina model even has 2 fans and additional cooling vents.The Macbook Pro can dissipate heat just fine now. It can cool down from burning hot to cool to touch within seconds of the heavy processing finishing. The Iris Pro model will make up the bulk of sales now and they'll be fine.
trapped (træpt) adjectiveunable to escape, as from a situationI used that word in the analogy because a state of mind is similarly inescapable. Mind-altering chemicals give a temporary escape.Why is it any different from doing anything else? It's your life, I say it's your choice what you do with it. You're not a possession or accountable to anyone for your own existence.Financially, the family should be ok - he even set up trust funds for his kids. They're losing...
If the phone has never been synced to a computer before, it should just sync up ok on a computer but it will warn if it won't do that. If it has been synced to a computer before, it will try to wipe it if synced to a new one but it'll tell you before it does it. There's a guide here on what to do in the latter situation:https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3141I don't like Apple's way of wiping devices. I don't see why they can't allow devices to sync to multiple...
I don't think he could have said he was satisfied with the numbers from a PR point of view. That was the point I was making about dishonesty. The video they've shown demonstrates that they already have a diverse workforce but it would come across wrong if he said he was happy with a majority white male workforce. I doubt they'll change their hiring policies to exclude the best candidates but it depends on if they plan to do follow-up numbers in a year or two.
You're trapped in a burning building though so rolling means rolling in more fire. You'd have to choose the gun.No, I'm saying the opposite - that people can't assume it can be cured as easily as an illness.
I think it's perfectly ok to kill oneself regardless of circumstances but to invalidate the statement of 'killing yourself is never the answer', you just need to consider if you were on fire and there was a gun nearby. Would you burn to death painfully or use the gun? Replace the fire with any number of things - bad memories, bad circumstances, illnesses that are inescapable.People often suggest mental 'illness' is the cause of people taking their own lives or that it...
I agree, I really liked the video. I think a lot of the time public statements on these issues are made dishonestly. Everybody curates how they present their views on topics so they get the expected reaction. It's in part to distance themselves from people with views objectionable to them. If someone was to write down a list of everything a racist, sexist, homophobe etc would say and if what they say in any way comes close to these statements then they use it as an...
The 13" models don't have a dedicated GPU so aren't affected. The 15" models have integrated graphics too so Apple might be able to disable the GPU by either a hardware or software fix but the fact they haven't so far suggests that might not be an option.They've been denying repairs to people affected. The people affected can't just wait months for Apple to decide to repair their machines.The 2011 models use AMD graphics and NVidia/AMD don't solder the chips to the board.
This kind of statement is to be expected. It's very hard for someone in Cook's position to feel comfortable saying they are perfectly happy with a white male dominated workforce by stating that the numbers align quite well with the population and interest in technology. If the numbers didn't align with the population then they'd be hiring more of a minority group than they should be.It is however perfectly ok to have a minority or female dominated group and publicise that...
