It's neither. Old English tended to pronounce words based on the first syllable, which tended to create alliterative strophic poetry.After William the conqueror changed the official court language to French in 1066, French words entered the lexicon, which is why Chaucer is so different from, say, Gawain and the Green knight.French words (and Latin, which we borrowed from heavily in the Renaissance) have stresses in later syllables. So borrowed words (calques) have...
Not to mention the products they make are taxed (at least where I'm from and in at least some states) AND the employees are all taxed on their income.  I'm not necessarily arguing for low corporate taxes per se, but corporations do get taxed at LEAST 3 ways, 4 if you count sales
My 2009 Mini with 2GB of Ram had greatly improved performance with Mavericks.  Actually was considering buying a new computer until then, which is good because a new mini looks increasingly less likely...
Agreed - I have a 2009 Mac Mini and have no problems doing that.  You have to wait for content to be fully downloaded though (i.e. if you just bought something on iTunes and its "ready to watch" you can view it on the mac, but you have to wait until its fully downloaded to push it to Apple TV)
I didn't watch the keynote yet, but this seems like one of those things where the software comes first, hardware next, so I think this is quite exciting for the potential of a wearable device that will use Healthkit after some bugs are ironed out/features added
By this logic no one else could have ever created a touch screen phone because "these are old features"
II suppose you'd know
Agreed.  Can't see it disappearing, but the long term neglect makes me think it might get "refreshed" (or replaced/rebranded) with a black machine that either looks like a smaller version of the Pro or a slightly bigger Apple TV  (it wouldn't surprise me if they made it non-expandable in a totally sealed box the like aTV).
For years we all PAY for cable, and yet, ads. If you want NEW content, it costs a lot more money than old Netflix content.  Someone online once estimated it would cost Netflix 400k PER EPISODE of Big Bang Theory if they wanted to put new ones on Netflix (x, whatever, 150 shows or how ever many there are), which would blow their entire budget on one series. (that number was the amount of ad revenue per half hour on Cable television that show generated)
Wouldn't it be: "Yea, because they will stop selling many iPhones because Samsung/Android is taking all the market share.  So iTunes sales will look bigger in comparison"?
