How is it overpaying when what they were making keeps them poor?Just because there's more workers than jobs shouldn't mean that workers have to live in poverty or close to it.All people who work deserve a living wage. It's not the workers' fault that the high wages paid to the highly skilled workers at Apple and other such companies have driven up housing and other costs.And of course there is class warfare. Middle class workers haven't received a real wage increase in 25...
If you see a watch as solely a utility, then you're correct.   If you see a watch as a status and fashion statement, as many people do (otherwise there would be no luxury watch business), then the accessory bands for the lower-priced lines aren't expensive at all.   Think about women who spend $150 on a handbag and have different ones depending on what they choose to wear.   This is the market for selling multiple watch bands.    These watches are not for people who wear...
I agree that if you plug it into an Apple display, which has its own set of ports, additional ports on the machine aren't needed.   But I don't know why anyone would buy the smallest, lightest laptop to primarily use it with an Apple Display.    So I still maintain that two ports on the machine would have been better. I completely agree with you about the USB connector, but I assumed there will be some USB to USB-C adapter or someone will soon quickly release some USB-C...
A fail that will sell extremely well.    But I agree that the adapters are overpriced and that there should have been two USB-C ports. 
IMO, they should have left the power cable separate and Mag-safe and/or there should have been two USB-C connectors.
How about because they can't afford to live on the salary that they're making.   How about because it's unethical for a company with the profits of an Apple to have employees (whether hired directly by Apple or through a third party) who are suffering economically.   How about because doing it your way is exploitation and if I'm correct that most of the drivers are probably black or hispanic, not to do so reeks of racism.   I'm not claiming that bus drivers should be rich...
And what new and improved features have you found?   Because aside from some font changes in menus and a new look for the bottom Tabs in Excel, I haven't really found any yet, although I haven't spent a hell of a lot of time with the new versions yet.
Excel:  I actually think this is Microsoft's best program - it has never crashed or failed and it has great functionality.  But I'll agree that some of the very advanced functionality is opaque and I don't use it, but I do use far more than Numbers can provide.   I can't say that I understand how to use every Function in the program, but I know enough that even my daughter's tax accountant couldn't figure out how I got numbers to automatically appear in the correct column...
For investment decisions, I think that would be correct unless one primarily invests in tech stocks, in which case Nasdaq would be better.  But for the overall health of the U.S. economy, I really think all three exchanges need to be evaluated.     Over the last few years, the S&P has outperformed the Dow.    At the end of 2012, the Dow was up 7.3% for the year, but the S&P was up 13.4%.   In 2013, it was 26.5% for the Dow and 29.6% for the S&P.  In 2014, it was 7.5% for...
I don't why you think Office 2011 sucks (for other than UI issues). I use it interchangeably with Office on a PC and it works absolutely fine. The big question is whether the Outlook calendar and address book will sync with the iPhone or at least sync with Apple's calendar and address book which would in turn sync with the iPhone like it used to. That used to work until either an OS update or iCloud (I forget which) came along. If it still doesn't sync, I don't know...
