Ahh ... ChicagoLand ...When we lived there, the state Supreme Court could not field a quorum -- because over half the members were in jail!Then there was Paul Powell, Illinois Secretary of State ... He entered Illinois politics as a poorer middle class individual. After several decades of Public Service, at Quote:12/01/2005 Paul Powell: The Illinois Democrat Who Died With $800,000 In His ShoeboxOK, OK, there was really more than just one shoebox. I'll let Seth...
It's not quite as simple as that ...In California, public schools are funded, mainly, by property taxes paid by home owners, and federal tax redistributions based on "butts in the chairs".In many poorer districts the property tax base is low because a lot of people rent apartments, live in trailer parks, etc.Add to that the collapse of the housing market where districts are receiving less property tax income because of unoccupied houses (some abandoned) and lower...
All this talk about a 5.5" iPhone is just so passé ... What Apple is spending $Billions for is to tool up manufacturing for the penultimate wearable ... the iBeacon Vibrator!
Just gotta' post something ... See if he picks up on mine (inspired by Sol).

In regard to Xcode 6 beta 6 -- it was available and I dloaded it successfully -- but it wouldn't run. If you go on the beta developer forums site it tells you how to remove the quarantine so Xcode 6 beta 6 will run successfully … I'm running it now! I think they pulled it because of the quarantine -- or maybe there's something in there that they didn't want people to see yet!
Seconded!I usually avoid posting to threads like this, but it is interesting to note that out of Apple's first 10 employees they had:1 female2 males with Hispanic surnames1 male communist (English surname)1 male Finnish descent1 male Polish descent1 male Syrian descent3 males with English surnameshttp://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2011/06/the-first-10-apple-employees-where-are-they-now/240020/#slide1That's pretty diverse for 1978 in Silicon Valley ...FWIW, I met...
