Because people don't like it as much as other genres.You're trying to equate knowledge with preference, which is elitist. It would be like saying only educated people like strawberry ice-cream, that's not how preferences work.You seem to think that if people are exposed to jazz and classical music more that they will like it more. By the same measure, if you were more exposed to rap, would you like it more? Clearly not.People who like rap are not uneducated, ignorant or...
Marketing only goes so far. Young people don't want to listen to classical music and you can't recondition them to.They didn't hire Dre to promote rap music or its associated culture.There's a difference between someone using those phrases towards people in a demeaning way directly and when used in a song or in casual conversation. You can for example tell someone to f* off, which would be offensive or you can say 'wtf was that' in casual conversation. The f* isn't...
Do you mean copying from the internal drive or from the same external drive? If it's both their internal drives and the new one has been sitting unused for a while, there is a possibility that the hard drive got damaged in that one. Hard drives aren't supposed to sit idle for long periods as the mechanisms can fail but also hard drives are most likely to fail in their first few months of use and right at the end of their life cycle. That's one of the problems with...
Monster manufactured them. Like how Apple designs their products and then Foxconn etc manufactures them.
I don't see why Jony Ive would have a problem redesigning other products, he's done the same for Leica and others.I think Beats are already designed very well and the branding is nice too. It is unusual for Apple to maintain 3rd party branding but I think it's justified here. I expect Jony Ive will make the appropriate adjustments to the headphone design and build quality.The comment made about retaining compatibility with Android was interesting because how could...
What did you do just before the rainbow wheel appeared? If it hangs when copying files, the hard drive might be failing.
Promoting cultural intolerance is rarely a good thing. You don't have to like everything that's out there but people should be free to express themselves just as you are. If someone hates classical music, it doesn't mean they'd have a right to stifle it.I know the feeling you have though and I feel similarly towards modern art. To me it's insulting to artists who are passionate about what they express. However, if it's meaningful enough to someone else then their...
Are you using a wireless keyboard and mouse that might not be connecting in order to wake up the Mac mini? The rainbow wheel on copying from the external could mean the external drive has a problem. If this drive is plugged in when the sleep issue happens, perhaps it's having an effect here too.
Oh no, shipping times unslip! This means lower-priced models delayed and won't be seen at WWDC. Downgrade AAPL for improving shipping times and possibly delaying possibly fictional product.
Is this a genuine story this time? It sounds like another one of those 'I know lots of people with broken iPhones' etc at which point comes the recommendation for an anything-but-Apple product. You even managed to slip in the drawer comment often used about Android tablets. This is the classic 'my friend/partner/child used to use something you like but then got something else and couldn't be...
