  You sure like to kiss Apple's butt, don't you?     You've got to me kidding me.     Battery life is most certainly an issue.  Enough so that Apple called me personally about it (really!).   And my Mac is still freezing up about every other day which it never did before installing Mountain Lion.   I was extremely disappointed in the QC by Apple in this OS release.    Made me lose a bit of faith and have concerns that Apple has become too big a company and isn't paying...
I'm one of the people Apple contacted and while I was on the phone with the Apple Tech, my battery went from 98% to 75%.   Even he was surprised.  (MBP, late 2008)   I also have the problem where something is causing the machine to freeze-up and lose WiFi connectivity.   Never happened before Mountain Lion.   I used to reboot about twice a year (aside from when I shut the machine down to take it somewhere, which wasn't actually that often.)  Now I have to reboot...
  While that might be true and the media might start coming down on Apple, deserved or not, it won't necessarily negatively impact the stock price.   I think the bigger issue is whether or not Apple has another product line beyond the iPhone and iPad  (rather than just another updated model.)    The second issue is whether any other tech company might come along and jump the gun again in terms of phone, pad or computer technology that puts them way ahead of Apple and...
It depends.  If he was making an average salary and didn't yet have stock, I agree with you.   But if he's already a multi-millionaire and he has nothing in writing and no witnesses to Jobs' supposed promise to him, then he should move on.   If he's as skilled as implied, I'm sure another company would love to have him.   The question is why doesn't Apple still want him?    They still do presentations at launches.     Is it that he was too close to Jobs?   Is he hard to...
  Is it unethical?  Yes.   Is it illogical?   Yes.     But with no real alternatives (Verizon and AT&T have most of the U.S. market and basically copy each other's pricing) and a Congress unwilling to take on big companies like this, they'll be able to get away with it.   It will most certainly not lead to their demise until the day that WiFi is ubiquitous (which will never happen because we refuse to build the infrastructure) and even then, they'll find some way to stop...
  Thank you, Mr. Obvious.   But to achieve HALF the density of the stores in Pennsylvania, Apple would have to build another 405 stores in China.  Even if they opened 20 locations a year, that would take them until at least 2032.    And by then, you might have similar new demand in India and maybe even Africa and the Middle East, assuming that the world economy doesn't blow up again.   Hell, by then, the U.S. recession might truly be over and we might even be a growth...
      The police report says they were $2950, not $28,950.
  Name one millionaire (someone who had $1 million or more in assets, not including the home they lived in), who is now piss poor.     But I agree with your other comments.   If I hadn't been born white to a middle class family, I doubt very much that I would achieved the career success that I've had.   If my family was just a bit poorer, I probably would not have been able to attend college.    If I had been a minority, among the companies I've worked at, if just one...
I love it!!   There should be more of this.     Sites who find this garbage and repost it should be embarrassed and understand that what they do has nothing to do with actual journalism, where you perform fact checking, quote sources, etc.      I would love to see a kind of "political correctness" that says that it's not cool to re-tweet other people's tweets or re-post other people's youtube videos, etc.     When will people understand that such clutter makes...
Apple called me yesterday on this issue.   That really surprised me since there are hundreds, if not thousands of complaints on the Apple boards.    I spent about a half hour on the phone with the tech.   While I was on the phone with him for that time, my battery dropped from 98% to about 70%.       While we didn't fix anything, we did create files to send back to Apple for further diagnosis.        I must admit that I was impressed that they called.  Made me...
