 But Apple JUST introduced a low-cost iMac with performance compromises beyond the normal. I don't think they would do that without a good reason.  The difference is that the 12" Powerbook was a decent machine. I used to own one. Eventually, I moved to a 15" because of the screen limitations, but the 12" was decent enough for everyday mobile computing.It just isn't a machine for photographers, serious video work or DTP.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. corralled unanimous votes on privacy and recess appointments — cases that dealt stinging defeats to Mr. Obama, himself a lawyer and former lecturer on constitutional law.   In the more than five years that Mr. Obama has been in office, the court has rejected the government’s argument with a 9-0 decision 20 times.
The Jobsing of Aperture leads me to believe that Apple knows its product line is growing too wildly and needs to be pruned a bit. If this translates to hardware, I expect that the 11" will be cut when the line goes Retina.   I know this is anecdotal, but I don't think I've personally seen anyone with an 11" in at least two years. I'd be interested to hear the stories of those who have one and do real work on them. At the Apple Store, it always looks too small for my...
 The way I see it, the more government is unaccountable and involved in cronyism, the more it will be involved in areas where the national interest isn't the single overriding issue. I also think it should be obvious why there's more anger here over the IRS scandal than the Yemen situation. We know people targeted in the IRS witch hunt, and nobody on AI lives in Yemen.
 If the Government can't be held in check locally by those to whom it's supposed to be accountable, how would you ever expect to fix its international policies? Domestic lawlessness breeds cronyism and corruption, which is then manifested outside the country.
The most conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme court take a stand for consumer rights, outvoted by liberals who back Big Cable.
All you require is a President who loves his country and is willing to do what it takes.   And one that understands that the job will be for one term only, and he will be vilified and hated afterward.
 Heh. Well done. Any idea if that Cricket Channel is available in Canada?  Also, I've seen references on the Net to ABC being the first news network to stream like this. I don't think that's correct. While it's not everyone's cup of tea (even moreso than Fox News), CBN News has been broadcasting 24/7 online for years.
Apparently, the reason the U.S. wants to wind down involvement in overseas wars is because the military gear is needed to handle people at home.
 Watergate was about politicians stealing from other politicians. The IRS scandal is far worse, since it's about criminals in government abusing power and going after regular citizens.
