 Oh, stop.  You know full well he was referring to specs in general mattering, especially as a justification to call a product "better" than its competition.  Apple makes products that seem to be more than the sum of their parts.  That has been their model.  What he's saying is that Apple has never tried to go spec by spec or feature by feature.  They focus on upgrading them over time, but are more intently focused on the overall user experience through design, look, feel,...
http://nypost.com/2014/09/14/leo-v-science-vanishing-evidence-for-climate-change/ A Geologist explains why.... The evidence is clear:  The ice caps aren't melting.  The sea isn't rising.  The temperature isn't rising.  Extreme weather is not occurring more frequently.  This, despite Co2 measurements increasing dramatically over the past century.   The only thing that the hysterical, hyper-ventilating climate change enthusiasts have left are Hail Mary passes such as "the...
Honestly, I don't know why Samsung even tries with these ads.  I really think they make ads so Samsung employees and fanboys feel better.  I doubt they have any real market impact.  Just advertise your product and stop trying to "compete" with Apple's brand.  I swear, these people don't learn.  Microshaft tried the same thing with Zune.  Now they're doing it with Surface.  They run these ads disparaging and mocking Apple's products.  All it seems to do is make Apple even...
Boo hoo.  "I woke up in the middle of the night to order and I couldn't! Then they were sold out!"   Cry my a freaking river.  Everyone knows that not even Apple can handle the insane demand of pre-orders.  Wait a month or two, you babies.  
 I don't think it's a structural issue, nor do I think that's even possible politically.   What I think is that we need to elect new leaders in the House, Senate and Presidency.  
 That's basically what I think, too.  There is no question he's committed provably impeachable acts, such as making up his own laws, changing laws and refusing to enforce existing law.  But, I doubt it will happen.  I happen to think it's less about both "teams" working for the same thing, and more about political reality.  Even if the GOP takes the Senate, they'd be unlikely to have enough votes to remove him.  And even if they somehow did, the political damage incurred...
 Excellent post.  Correct.  He was lecturing about the national "deficit" and the "yearly" (annual) deficit.  What he meant, I think, was "national debt."  You're correct that calculating the deficit is simply a matter of expenditures and income.   That said, the deficit is actually much higher than reported.  Congress (and the admin) dips into the Social Security surplus (or did until recently) to cover-up much of the actual difference between expenditures and revenue....
 That is utter stupidity.  You can certainly criticize Catholicism, as it has many faults.  But to compare modern Catholicism with radical Islam is an absolute joke. There is no global Catholic terrorism.  The Pope doesn't call for innocents to be slaughtered, nor does he propose a Catholic version of a Caliphate.  Catholicism does not condemn Muslims, require their conversion, or target them because of their faith.  In fact, Catholicism does not do this with any religion....
They focused on software under Ballmer? Uh, no. They introduced the Zune under him, and directly criticized and mocked the iPhone as the "most expensive phone in the world." Ballmer stupidly tried to compete with Apple on hardware, the very mistake Apple made in the 1980s.
 I would agree his actions had something to do with it.  I would disagree his actions were the sole reason.    Who knows.  She'll be a formidable candidate for sure.  The sense of inevitability is gone, however.  Of course the GOP is afraid of her and is attacking here--that's obvious, and that's politics.  That doesn't invalidate everything they and others say, however.  She's got some serious drawbacks as a candidate.      I'm not sure I see the point of the above rant,...
