 I'll indulge the analogy.  In it, the asteroid is actually not appearing larger, and often appears smaller.  The computer models said it would be X size by now, and it's only 1% of X.   Thanks for the YouTube video, champ.  
This may actually be a good idea for me. Hmmmm.....
 I know, and agree.  It's really puzzling.  I was surprised when they went with Haswell, and even more surprised when Intel announced quad core Broadwell like a week later.   What bugs me is that Apple is charging a real premium for these machines, which are now using an architecture that is nearly two generations old.   It's $2,000 for the base model, and that only comes with 256GB of storage.  I'd want at least 512, and would probably just go for the faster processor and...
    So, the models "clearly overestimated"  warming.  They are always improving as more data is available.  Let me ask then...at what point do they become even reasonably accurate? How long will this take?  how many grossly inaccurate predictions can be made before one questions the entire theory of AGW?  There seems to be no limit with you.    Should?  Might?  Could?  Not surprising at all.  But so far, it has not.  And that's equally unsurprising, because we know it...
 I really got away from this thread somehow.  Anyway, my issues with the claimed warming trend go much beyond the fact that .5 degrees isn't significant.  Let's start with the fact that the data on GAT has been manipulated repeatedly.  From there, let's consider how accurate our GAT calculations are, even from 100 years ago.  Are you telling me that even measured temperatures could be accurate to that level?  Given the equipment we had 100+ years ago, I don't see how.  Now...
Pretty much on board with others here: While we don't know how successful Apple Music will be, history tells us the music industry really sucks at knowing what's coming. They utterly failed to see the trends on legitimate downloads and the removal of DRM. Not exactly a track record I'd be proud of.
 I should clarify that my comment above could easily be taken out of context.  I was really just expressing my changed view now that the update was Haswell-based.  I was previously running around here making predictions based on the notion the mid-May update would be Broadwell.  Others were saying they might pre-announce Skylake  (which I thought highly unlikely) or go Broadwell now and then Skylake by October.   If by "impending" you mean fall, I don't know.  It doesn't...
 Wow, you really can't let this go, can you?  I think the problem is that we're not understanding one another on what I mean by "addicted."  I am not referring to specific people, but the numbers of people currently on the subsidy model.  I believe that this is what various executives mean when they make these kinds of statements.  Customers as a whole are addicted to it.  That said, I agree the market is changing rapidly, as you note.     You can disagree all you want,...
 It depends on what you mean by "beating."  In domestic sales, Samsung has more than double the market share compared to LG (26 percent to 11 percent).  Globally, it's close to double (20%-12%).   I don't recall a time where Samsung TV's ever being "cheap."  They've been higher priced since flat panels became mainstream.   I'm not a cheerleader, mind you.  I think the only thing by Samsung I own is a blu-ray player from like 4 years ago.  I have a 9 year old Panasonic...
