It must be getting to be more popular and chic then, because in the late '70's all the studies were showing 2-3%. If atheistic evolution is true, homosexuality should have passed out of the gene pool long ago.
2-3%.
Great. So I just bought a queer notebook...
"iPhone Black"? Wait until Rev. Al Sharpton hears about this....
Regarding the term 'BRAND': Microsoft was trying to integrate their IE browser to the Windows OS and basically saying "This is Microsoft's BRAND. We have a right to do what we want with our software." To those of you who are arguing that Apple has a right to keep a lock on both hardware and software because it's the Apple BRAND -- do you then agree that Microsoft has a right to integrate IE into the Windows OS as part of their BRAND? The anti-trust regulators...
And Microsoft said that their software was their software, and they had the right to integrate Internet Explorer into their software. At issue is whether Apple's EULA is legal to be bound to a specific hardware. Microsoft's "EULA", in essence, was to force everyone to use IE if they wanted Windows. The federal anti-trust regulators here in the US and in Europe decided that Microsoft had too much of a monopoly in the browser department, and forced MS to 'play nice' with...
If these computers aren't reliable, they won't sell. This is a perfect test of, as you say, "whether Apple's approach creates a better computer, and whether its significant markup is worth paying for." Right now, Apple has a monopoly on OS-X-running computers. Apple's hardware doesn't have the same competition that Dell's hardware has. Dell has to make a reliable product at a competitive price to whatever HP, Sony, etc., are putting out. That's one of the main reasons...
1) Your Macbook is not outdated. It wasn't a huge upgrade anyway. 2) Steve Jobs didn't do anything wrong here. If you were living back in the '20s, you'd say Henry Ford didn't have integrity when he released a new Model A Ford, and you'd just bought the previous version. That's just the way it goes. Any manufacturer has to keep the new model under wraps for as long as possible, to try to keep an edge on the competition. You buy the available model, or you take a...
Given this quote from this article...:http://forums.appleinsider.com/showt...threadid=84873...and given some other rumors of price drops due to falling flash memory prices, I don't think we'll have to wait until next Christmas. After a small rest from the recent Shuffle and MacBook announcements, I have a hunch we'll see an increase in memory in the non-Touch iPods (like we just saw with the Touch and iPhone), or a decrease in price in iPods, or both. Probably in the not...
I'm waiting for a price drop, too. I want a 32GB version, but would only buy if it were more like $400. But I doubt we'll see it very soon. Apple just dropped the price on the Shuffle, and just announced MacBook and MacBook Pro upgrades. That's a fair number of announcements. I doubt they'd announce any other deals for a while. Also, the 32GB model was introduced 3 weeks ago. If they dropped the price so soon, they'd annoy the people who bought them already, just...
