How is using language that is almost identical to yours 'snarky' when used against you?
Someone -- I forget who -- had come up with this idea on these boards a few days ago.I hope it'll get AirPlay functionality at some point. Should be a fairly easy software fix for Apple?
Apparently you're not, yet the thought occurred to you..... hmmm.....
Seems like you don't read very well. See post #54.And you'be obviously missed a lot of other posts in the thread too. I won't bother to summarize it for you. But try to get some context before you reply next.
This is all I was trying to say. Apple 'caving' fit with GG's anti-Apple meme, and I was pointing that out. As to (the absent) singularity, I am still puzzled about his "10%" reference. Perhaps you can explain?

 Sure, happy to oblige! (Although, I am a bit surprised that GG could not deconstruct something that was quite so easy!).  1) singularity made some vague statement about '10%' and how Apple caved to the EU (I am paraphrasing). He was basically implying that Apple decided to fight in the US and cave in the EU. 2) I said, 'what, what?' No reply from singularity. 3) GG, as usual, jumped in and provided a link with no explanation or context.  Also, because he loves to do that...
