 I think it depends on to whom you're compared, and on specific issues.  You're definitely far left on foreign policy and national security. Economically, your hatred of all "corporate welfare" and support of need-based individual welfare puts you pretty far to the left.  I guess you're a centrist compared to, say, Hugo Chavez.  But Bernie Sanders?  Do you honestly think you're to his right?    I was actually hoping you wouldn't take that term as a slur, because I didn't...
So....I've been lurking around, waiting for the new 15" MBP to replace my Mid-2009 variant.  Obviously it was released recently, and despite the disappointment relating to the Haswell chip, I am ready to buy pretty soon.  My machine is nearly unusable at this point, and that's no exaggeration.     But...I've been playing with ForceTouch on display models since the 13" debuted with it.  I realize it may take some getting used to, but I've got to be honest:  I hate the...
 I was just about to post the same thing.  "Massive iPhone hack" was all the rage on local and national news.  "This text hacks your phone!"  "Crazy iPhone Bug Turns Off Your Phone!" The above is the worst, but a close second are the MORONS who are posting things like "hahaha glad I have android."    I'm not sure why these infuriate me, but I think it's just the rank stupidity and ignorance.  Making it worse are the interviews between anchors and reporters standing in a...
 I've got to jump in here with some historical perspective on this debate.  While it's true that Hands does post quite a bit about Islamic extremism, it's also true that you, Sammi, have spent the better part of a decade claiming the entire thing is a creation of the Western imagination and/or military-industrial complex.   Your point of view is exceptionally anti-Israeli, anti-American and pro-Muslim.  Reading your posts over the years, it's clear you believe all problems...
More "free" crap that everyone else pays for. Because having broadband is a civil right. So goes the thinking of the looney toons left.
 That's part of my thinking, too.  There are some other real-life factors I have to consider before buying as well.  Part of it relates to what my job requires and the hardware they provide (right now it's inadequate).   Both of those factors could be different within a few months.   I'm also upgrading from a pre-retina display 2009 pro with a 500GB HDD.   4GB RAM.  The upgrade from that machine to this one will be ridiculous.  The SSD alone is probably a 10 fold increase...
 That is technically incorrect.  They have in some situations.  One happened when they released the iMac G5.  They moved everything to Intel 3 months later.  Special situation, but this may be as well.  It's clear that this latest upgrade is placeholder for Skylake.  As someone who is looking to buy this summer, I don't know what to do.  
When I bought my iPhone 5, I nearly switched to Verizon, which I had years ago. I almost did the same again with the 6. This is just one more reason I'm done with AT&T when I get my next iPhone. Their network is a total pile of crap. I drop calls and data transfers all the time. Coverage is inconsistent across the western Philly suburbs and exurbs. There are spots at the end of the Main Line (Paoli, Malvern) that have had dead zones for a decade. Come on.
It might surprise you to know that I generally agree with that thinking. I've been critical of those who scream at Apple over upgrades they expected but didn't get, claiming they "need" them. My problem here is that Haswell will be two generations old by this October. I was all over the board telling people that there was no way Apple would introduce Skylake MacBook Pros before early next year or possibly even the middle of next year. But, this was predicated on the...
 I've got to say I'm pretty disappointed.  I was certain it would be a Broadwell chipset, and so were many other astute observers.  That said, it is a significant upgrade.  I am in the market or soon will be.  My dilemma now is that I've waited so long already...why not wait for Skylake?
