please don't be obtuse. yes, there is no such thing as a free lunch, but Apple does not charge money for OS updates anymore.
We run Parallels on a Mac Pro at work - the Mac does our file sharing & runs OD, Parallels hosts Windows Server 2012 & our PACS system.   We tested Fusion & VirtualBox as well, but Parallels performed much better for this database system (relatively small - 20 GB SQL file, 6 TB of associated images, maybe 25-30 simultaneous users). The Mac Pro handles it all with ease too.   There has never been a "required" update in our use, but then we also run OS X a few versions...
cite your sources. i am definitely *not* saying you are wrong, just questioning the actual studies of kitchen, kitchen v. bathroom, etc. volume-based tasks would always use the same volume of water, regardless of flow rate.but hand washing dishes, washing hands, rinsing a sponge out, etc - these are not volume-based activities, and often occur at a kitchen sink.
  this was the argument against low-flow toilets:  "1.6 gallons won't flush *my* poop!"your point is, well, pointless, until you can actually try on in person.  inevitably, increases in efficiency are met with resistance, and statements of how it will "never work", and the naysayers tend to be proven wrong over time. consumption does not equal performance.
the FCC represents the US parlance on net neutrality. Much in the same way that US democracy does not fit the "true" definition, when ideals are enacted in a society, there is always give & take. "net Neutrality" and "Democracy" are pipe dreams, and the real-world adaptations of said ideals are what actually govern the people and corporations such as T-Mobile.
  Well, in term of the US & FCC, you are wrong konqerror - the FCC, in their final ruling, said the exact opposite of what you state. https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/04/13/2015-07841/protecting-and-promoting-the-open-internet "In this document, the Federal Communications Commission establishes rules to protect and promote the open Internet. Specifically, the Open Internet Order adopts bright-line rules that prohibit blocking, throttling, and paid...
The only thing i can say (and i have only been a T-Mobile customer for a couple of weeks) is that they seem to be freely adding music streaming services, not trying to exclude the smaller (or larger) players. In their minds, i believe they are trying to not have streaming music count against customers' data, but in reality it is an "opt in" type of thing, as T-Mobile needs to differentiate data streams to know which is music...blah blah blah.
i think it is just as much about this:"...should also allow retailers to hold on to customer data" Apple's continual stance to keep my data private is one of my largest motivating factors in using their ecosystem.
I am really at a loss as to what the argument is...   Does it differ from Amazon allowing other retailers/wholesalers to sell similar products, but being able to undercut their pricing due to instituted fee policies?
speed, in photographic terms when speaking of lenses, is simply the maximum opening size of the aperture.I would expect the faster lens (aka the bigger opening) to be more sensitive to aberrations in the front material.however, I very much agree that thickness (or lack there of) could very well be the reasoning behind the material choice.
