  Only an idiot EVER paid full price for a book. Barnes & Noble, Borders and all the major brick and mortar stores have coupons all the time. The publishing industry will never make money again? How about they just sell the books to Amazon at a profitable rate, just like the majority of other industries? If Amazon pays $10 for the book, why should Random House care if Amazon sells it for $2? Random House already got their $10.     What Apple essentially tried to do was...
  Amazon was one of the first major sellers of e-books. Exactly what competition did they have to have to drive to drive out of business? They were trying to build a market that didn't exist. It's clear from comments on these forums that people expect digital versions to be cheaper than their analog equivalents, which is exactly what Amazon was trying to provide. Some items sold below cost, some items sold above cost, just like in regular retail markets. That 99 cent...
Maybe his finger hit the "k" and "d" instead of the "l" and "s" since both pairs of letters are right next to each other. And maybe he typed his response on a device that automatically corrected Skil to Skill. And maybe you could not jump to douche assumptions. It's not like he rewrote your name as Lacks Skil or Lamest Skil.
The thing is, you can very discretely photograph or record someone with a phone. As I attempted to point out in the other Glass thread, you can point a phone in a direction totally separate to where you're looking and get a shot. I think the difference is how the technology was introduced. Cell phones got introduced without cameras and then had crappy cameras until having decent cameras. The addition of the invasive technology of a camera got lost in the rapid ubiquity...
Let's see if I can make this easy enough for you to grasp. A perv sees you head to the bathroom and decides he wants some video. He pulls out his iPhone and goes to the Camera app. He sets it to video, hits the record button and lowers his hand down to his waist. He walks in sees you at the urinal and casually strolls up. The camera is still recording all this time. He stands next to you, shoves the phone in his front pocket, not far enough down to obscur the camera. He...
What exactly is straw clutching about my argument? If a perv wants to take video of you using the toilet, all they have to do is hit record on the phone before entering the bathroom and just be holding it. It doesn't take much skill and is a hell of a lot more discrete than someone having to stare at you the whole time. And since the phone would end up at waist height, it's better aligned for the "money shot." Or do you punch everyone who walks into the bathroom clutching...
They banned ALL recording devices at the meeting not just Glass. The headline only mentioning Google's latest product is just cheap link bait.
What makes Glass any more invasive than the modern cell phone?I can just as easily record video of someone discretely with my iPhone as someone wearing a head mounted camera. From the video that Google posted, Glass turns on a red LED light when it's recording. No cell phone does such a thing.It's also extremely easy to record conversations without the other party being aware with an iPhone. Just start recording in the Voice Recorder app and set the phone down. Extremely...
Well, since you're saying the ear pods are free, 10 x 0 is 0 so yes they might be better than other headphone that cost nothing. If you're going with their retail price of $29 and stating their better than $290 headphones, you're starting to spout nonsense. Outside of their actual electronic device core (Mac, iPod, iPhone, iPod), Apple is pretty dreadful at hardware.
I know you've always acted like kind of a d1ck, but really? You actually want thousands of people unemployed simply because they make a competing product? (And yes, I do believe you were serious with your comment.)I know quite a few people with the means to purchase any phone they wish who purchased an Android phone instead of an iPhone. And they're all much more mentally stable than I am (who owns an iPhone). Of course they're all IT people with the ability to judge tech...
