 As I stated above, I certainly hope the USB-C spec is more robust than that. If a computer has multiple identical looking ports but only one of them allows for charging I'd consider that a serious failure of the specification. And would plugging in multiple chargers really be all that different than using an 85W MagSafe adaptor in place of a 45W adaptor to charge a MBA or using an iPad adaptor to charge an iPod touch? It's not like the adaptors are focing current into the...
 I understand your point, but keep in mind that this is the same company and hardware team that applied the less-is-more concept and come out with the buttonless iPod shuffle. They do sometimes take minimalist design too far.   If you remember to first plug in the appropriate adaptor/hub ahead of time. The MB has a long battery life, but there are going to be times when you plug in an external drive (which may be bus powered and draining the battery even faster) and start...
No matter how disruptive the technology, it still takes time to mature and roll out. All the while the "old" technology continues to work fine. (It's only been relatively recently that digital music download sales finally surpassed CD sales.) None of the existing options, including Apple's hypothesized option, would replace TiVo for my uses anytime in the next couple of years. I think my investment is safe. It will be interesting to see how Apple handles things that a DVR...
   Keeping my exact same channel lineup, the cost savings of not having to rent the DVR from Comcast meant it would take me a little over three years to recoup the cost of TiVO + lifetime service + 3 year extended warranty. So that "3 years to recoup" is true, but that part about it not including cable channels is not true. If I went strictly OTA thet TiVo would pay for itself in less than a year. I also purchased my own cable modem and stopped renting that from Comcast....
 I wonder if sog35 realizes the irony of his statement suggesting a previous poster have a better backup plan for important things so they don't suffer from extended outages? I'd point it out, but I'm pretty sure his reply would be yet another "so what's your point?" 
 Fair statement, but Apple also has a fairly long history of not having the most reliable cloud services. Those relatively new to the platform are blissfully unaware of that history. And recently Apple has done better. But those of us who have been around awhile know that this is an area Apple needs to keep improving on. As a previous poster said, sh*t happens. But it can't take this long to get it back up and running. Especially if they want to have control over so much...
Of course the CIA explores ways to crack into the iPhone. That's their job! It would be irrepsonsible of them not to. If it was learned that a terrorist used a certain technology to carry out an attack and that the CIA never bothered explore ways to compromise that technology before the attack, everyone would be up in arms about how inept the CIA was. Look how much flak the intelligence community gets for not identifying and stopping the 9/11 attack. Seems they are damed...
 Not really. They sent the email to Aperture users. Not all Aperture users are pros. And not all Aperture users are aware of the pending discontinuation of Aperture. I dislike it's discontinuation, too; but I will give Apple credit for communicating the upcoming change so their customers are aware of it. That's something they are normally quite bad at. Usually you find out the bad after the product is released and you (or other early adopter guinea pigs) have installed it...
 I just installed 3.5.1 on a Mavericks machine a couple of weeks ago, so unless something has changed since them I'm not sure what you read is true.
 Then you really didn't use much of Aperture's capabilities and it's no wonder you went back to iPhoto. This isn't an insult. Just a statement that Aperture was overkill for your needs, in which case sticking with iPhoto was probably the right choice. But for those of use who use more of Aperture's capabilities, it's clear that this does not do all the things Aperture did.
