Steve would have approved of this design.  However, being the kind of person that he is, he would immediately tell whatever structural/materials engineer to figure out how to remove those ribs.I still think fondly about how he removed the glass panels in the New York store to replace them with fewer, longer panels.  Even paid for it with his own money.  :)  Only Steve would be that OCD about it, and get away with it.That being said... ribs or not... the Japan store...
You know Constable, there was a time way, way, WAY long ago where you used to speak coherently, post actual debate & join in honest discussions of various opinions.Now, you really fell off the wagon and just make post-after-post of nonstop nonsense, trolling, and just sheer drivel.  Did you get burned in the market, make a bad call or something for you to take a position of nonstop doom-and-gloom?? Doesn't it get tiring for you to support such ridiculous products (Amazon...
It's not a "public" gym per se, and it definitely is much more expensive to be a member there than "24 Hour Fitness".  The membership dues alone is enough to keep the regular public out of there.  I don't see him there too often, maybe once a month but I think it's more to do with our erratic work hours than anything else.No, it's not the Equinox.  Unless he makes it public, Out of respect for the guy, I'll keep the name and location private. :)
Jony Ive happens to go to the same gym that I do in downtown SF.  I've bumped into him numerous times, sometimes literally as we're trying to get to wherever we're wanting to go in there.  He is a genuinely nice guy, and incredibly polite.  He is a little quiet, but only because (I think) he wants to keep a low-profile and not be a fan-magnet.  Just an everyday normal guy. :)
As usual, thank Apple for laying the groundwork for more compatible protocols that benefit everyone and especially for ignoring all the whiny Flash-fanboys (i.e. Phandroids) and their crying of how Apple is ruining the web experience. Funny... you don't hear much from that camp about this anymore eh?  Guess they learned to keep their mouths shut for a change.
Most users don't care, don't want to know, or have better things to do than micromanage processes on their phone.  In the end, most people will end up going on boards such as this one and complaining that "My iPhone battery suckz".  That's why.
Come on... This is Dr. Dre.  Remember the group N.W.A.??  This guy has to keep up that tough-guy, gangsta persona so he doesn't come across as looking like a "sellout" to the "man".  Of course, we all know that he is - and has been - part of that same corporate conglomerate.  I'm sure they were just goofing off.  That said, I'm sure Craig is not used to dealing with Dre's kind of hard personality. :)It's all an act.  I'm not a fan of that kind of rap music, but I do admire...
Have you used Windows 8 recently?  I was Windows7 all the way up until they came out with their Win8.1 update 1 release.  Windows 8 is (finally) a worthy upgrade to Windows 7 at it's current release.  They made it more mouse/keyboard friendly.  I started using Windows 8 almost exclusively now, and it has been rock-solid stable.  Windows 7 has just about been relegated to the dust bin for me.The one thing I still don't like about Win 8 is the way it attempts to hijack my...
$50 is still $50 even for an individual making $200K, especially if the process is such that it is of minimal effort and best use of one's time to receive the money, which is precisely what Gazelle does.  Why does it bother you such?I'll tell you that if I could make $100 by doing nothing more than putting my old phone in a box, and at my leisure, walk to a mailbox on the way to work and be done with it, I'll certainly do it.  I make over $100K+/yr and I'll tell you that...
800 by the end of the year??  I'll bet you that it will be 1/8th of that by the end of the year... :)
