I think it's okay for 12 and above.    I certainly have less of a problem with that song, which is meant to be a joke and isn't hurtful to anyone than with a rapper who talks about "bitches and hoes".     But let's say it isn't okay for a 12-year-old.    Why does it need to be censored?    Why can't parents raise their kids so either a) they'd have no interest in that song   -or-b) they'd tell their kid that they didn't want them listening to it (and the kid would actually...
 When it's intended to be used for dramatic effect, a curse can be quite effective, but let's get real.   As used by most comics, in much music and by people being interviewed, it's far over-used and it's a crutch.     If you have to say f__k every few words, then I would agree with the OP that it's used by people who have a very limited vocabulary and imagination. I also disagree with the person who posted that words are just sound waves.   Words have very specific...
You're missing the point.    IMO, houses immediately in the vicinity of the new campus will be in great demand.   That will raise prices.    Rising values will increase property values, which in return, will increase real-estate taxes (although as someone else stated, no more than 2% per year).
My increased net worth means nothing unless I want to borrow against the equity.  Net worth is just a number on a piece of paper.   There are plenty of cash-poor people with high net worth, if they've owned their house for decades.  This is a big problem throughout the country, especially in places which have become "gentrified".     I could be living in a lousy neighborhood because it's all I can afford.   I own my home (or apartment).    Squeezed out of far richer...
I agree that we don't need a long article to answer a simple question.   I think the answer (which may be in part what you're saying by a "strong platform") is simply that iPad users are more likely to be willing to pay for Office on the iPad or even have a need for it in the first place.     It doesn't matter how much share a platform has if it doesn't include customers who will buy your product.    Apple always said that they thought the iPhone and iPad brought new users...
 Nope.   That would have happened long ago and the lawsuit would have been against the local government or community board.   While I'm sure there's a few disgruntled people who would prefer that either Apple wasn't there at all or that they weren't building a new campus, large swaths of the local population either work for Apple or benefit financially from Apple being there.    I'm sure there are some residents concerned about increased traffic on their streets, but it's...
Ideas are not supposed to be patentable, only the implementation of those ideas.    And we don't know what methods Apple is using.   It's the method that is entitled to the patent (or not, as the case may be). As far as the idea itself goes, I'm not sure it makes any practical sense and this may be a disguise for some other purpose.    Many people who walk and text have the phone almost parallel with the ground.     That's not going to help one see traffic or other people....
Looking at Apple's current "People" emoji, I think I counted 139 icons.   The vast majority are circles with the color of the sun, which IMO doesn't represent any human race.   I count only 35 that could be considered "human" (although cartoon representations) and it's true that those are all Caucasian, although not a particular national group (they don't look Asian, for example).      While I can see the argument that there should be brown-skinned versions of these...
Now that Apple has eliminated the ROM drive from the MacBook Pro line and the machines are so thin, I don't see the point of the MacBook Air, except as a potentially less expensive choice. And it can be less expensive by including a lower-level processor and/or keep it non-Retina. In all other respects it can be the same as the MBP unless they can come up with a totally new form factor for the MBA. I really don't see the point of a 13" MBA and a 13" MBP. The upper...
I hope this means that Office cal and contacts can now synch again with Apple Address Book and Calendar which then in turn will synch with the cloud. Before iCloud everything synched fine (except for problems with double-entries in the Calendar). After iCloud, I had to give up the Office Calendar because it would no longer sync. And I have to enter contacts in both Office Contacts and Apple Address Book. Pain in the arse and IMO, typical Apple arrogance. But if...
