Why aren't building codes updated to mandate either tankless water heaters in all new construction or insulated hot-water-loops? When we built our rambler in the late 1980's, the plumber installed an insulated hot-water loop which ran to all remote bathrooms and the kitchen and back out into the garage, where the water tank was located. A small electric pump kept the water circulating. Here's the deal - when we went to use the sinks or shower from our master bedroom,...
I think that Apple needs to stick to their knitting. If they want to color outside the lines, get into robotics. Huge requirements for hardware, software, imaging, speech synthesis, speech recognition, battery power and power management, lightweight but robust design, etc. - all things that Apple currently is good at.
I'd love to be able to try out Apple Pay, but so far we haven't shopped anyplace where it an option.  We went to Walgreens once and the clerk didn't have a clue about it, nor was there any special station at the registers.  Chicken and egg sort of thing.
One marvels at how Obama and his fellow far-left lackeys prioritize the nation's pressing problems.  "War on women."  Minimum wage hikes.  Abortion at any stage of birth, for any reason.  Free "ObamaPhones."  And now "broadband is a public utility."   worst. President. EVER.
Just to splice into this topic, we just came from the Troutdale, OR Walgreens store. Tried to buy something with ApplePay. Clerk didn't have a clue, never heard of it, and gave us her two cents worth about never trusting such a device ("they can steal your card numbers" - whoever "they" is). Paid cash instead.
Side-by-side content panes? I read the new iTunes on-line help guide and didn't see anything pointing that out. In the past, I could have a window open with my songs and another window open for a playlist, and drag between the two windows. That's what I'd like to do again.
Can't update our iPad Air - downloaded it to the device (vs. via iTunes), and when it tried to verify, it said that it was not connected to the Internet (which it is - I quickly tried a website, which connected). After several attempts, I just quit. C'mon, Apple!
The new Photos app is a bust for me.  On my MacBook Pro, iPhoto keeps all of my 11K-plus photos sorted by Events, and the Events are displayed as sorted alphabetically.  That is how Events appeared in the old version of the iOS Photos app, but not anymore.  They now just show up in random order.  I tried deleting all photos from my phone and resyncing it, but nothing changed.
Well, gird your loins, Apple, for the race-hustle shakedown!
I had one of the, buying mine in early February of 1984. Biggest mistake? Upgrading it to a Mac Plus, which swapped out the back portion of the case which had all of the Macintosh Team's signatures stamped into the plastic on the inside.
