I love my AAPL, but for god's sake folks, just how far are you willing to bend over in defending capitalism's inalienable right to make money from the social infrastructure that makes it possible? As the so called hardworking types used to say, 'Ain't no Free Lunches', and the biggest pigs at the free lunch counter are corporations. (And please spare me the "they're just following the letter of the law" BS... talk about a low moral bar.)
Which is why the Cable monopolies need to be fully regulated as utilities, and the last 100' opened up to competition.
'Fee', 'Fo' and 'Fum' were taken?
The test will be if Tim and Greg use the watch to advance their keynote slides in June instead of the clicker.
Cool... now retroactively go in and invalidate their obscene acquisition of NBC. Or better yet, split Comcast (and Time Warner) into separate ISP and Cable companies, and make them divest one or the other. That the same company who's primary income is from cable packages also owns the pipeline for the only competition is insane. We all know that Big Cable's tactic on cable cutters will simply be to jack up internet prices. Internet has become just as basic a basic...
And I don't know when Americans turned into apologists for monopolists.If you don't get that Internet connectivity is just as much a necessity as water and sewage and needs to be regulated thusly, then I weep for your sycophancy.Comcast to be broken up NOW and split into a dumb pipe and whatever content the want to play in. At least that would have competition.
Its so entertaining to watch the Libertarian types (most of whom no doubt would love cable cutting) who live in a fantasy world where there is competition (almost nose-spit my coke at the comment that there was no cable monopoly) and the almighty free market is the all knowing arbiter of justice. I have to admire the masochistic faith in corporations that y'all seem to embrace. I'll take DOJ as my advocate any day. Not only should the NBC merger have been denied, but...
Are techies really so ignorant that they can't separate the appearance of an actor from the actual craft of (wait for it) ACTING? How about we wait and see what the performance is like people. Acting impersonation.
The entire market is in the tank.
Ironic that after my first few iPad years of wanting a mini-sized iPad, I've now decided that a 12.9 will be better at the things I really use my iPad for. Literally, the only thing I actually use my Mac for anymore is the occasional DVD/CD rip (very seldom) and when I need multiple windows and better input. This rumored iPad Pro (along with similarly rumored iOS productivity improvements) may be the final bridge I need to go completely iPad.
