 Rubbish - I started programming at 9 years old, and that was 32 years ago. The earlier the better. Oh, and we were piss poor, but I agreed with my dad to forsake toys and sweets for a year, just to have a computer (a 16k Atari 400). 
 Bingo, this exactly. Companies (and individuals) should focus on enablement - and by the way, African Americans are not the only group under-represented at the top. A couple of posts referred to Obama (indirectly) - the irony being is that he had to be 10x better (eductationally) than the white guy he was running against, and 100x better than his predecessor, to even get a chance. The barrier to entry should not be 10x higher, but it also shouldn't be lower either. Get...
Silicon Valley is one of the purest meritocracies we have; in fact, aside from sports, practically the only one left. There is nothing preventing the next Steve Jobs, Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg being non-white/non-male, so if Jesse Jackson wants to help, it's the self-image and self-respect of young under-represented kids that need the help. Not artificially stuffing the boards of already successful companies will 'representation' from under-prepared people.   I...
I suspect it has to do with iOS 8. It's highly likely iPad 2 support for iOS 8 will be dropped, so they need to stop selling it now, otherwise they will be in the position of releasing an OS not supported by devices less than a year old.
That's a really good point, and I honestly had not considered that. However, I am not sure how the enhanced cameras fits into that.Even so, I can't help but think Apple are missing a trick with memory here, and despite the other replies, 16GB is extremely restrictive (heaven knows what they're thinking with the 8GB 5C model) especially with large text books and the high resolution images the device can store. The lower end of the market should not be about margins, it...
I do not understand their strategy of restricting the capacity to 16GB, which is practically useless these days. It's gone with a couple of games and/or a couple of HD movies. With the retina screen, you'll want 1080p movies and better games. It's short-sighted moves like this, which keep cheap Android alternatives in the race.   Minimum storage now should be 32GB, with 64GB being mid and 128GB being high. The 16/32/64 paradigm was reasonable in 2009 (5 years ago) but...
So you either don't use Gmail or don't use mail groups. Both are broken.
I've had a very slow finder since going to mavericks. When in Logic or any other app, clicking 'save as' brings up the dialogue box and you get the spinning wheel while it tries to figure out what's in that folder or directory. Same when using finder. That's with an SSD, so it's not the HDD, I've seen others with the same bug in 10.9. Roll on 10.10...
[quote]   From Cash907's deleted post   2) Samsung needs to put it in writing that if their paid sponsors are too stupid to actually use the products they're being paid to use, they forfeit every dime they've been paid. Seriously. You all are attacking Samsunh for this, but really, how stupid do you have to be here? This is like trying to sell Coke while wearing a Pepsi t shirt. Morons. Gotta love all the Samsung hate here. Christ, it's like high school. What are you...
Apple should bid for TWC.
