Don't blame the user? What? Sometimes folks use systems and frameworks and doohickeys in ways in which they weren't designed to be used, or in ways which are so obscure, rare, and isolated from the norm, that the design of that system, framework, or doohickey, will inevitably fail the user. Murphy's Second Corollary It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. The OS X file system, for instance, can handle a situation in which nearly all...
That is one BIG phone. Anyway, niche-use cases, like the one under ah.... "discussion", don't count for anything.
Foxconn is an Apple partner. Apple needs to visit their partners from time to time. It's part of any functioning business relationship.No part of your comment will change either the wild success of the iPhone, or the sheer amount of profit it pulls in for Apple, or its absolute domination of every smartphone consumer satisfaction metric since its debut.I know that last part probably stings - a lot. But that's the reality in which you're making your comment.

paygate. But I've been preempted masterfully, I see.
Not quite in the tech realm. You know exactly what was meant. You're just being clever here, but being contrarian purely for its own sake doesn't change the situation.  It was a commonly-held belief that Microsoft and OEMs won the PC "wars." That's the phrasing that was (and still is) used. It is within the context of *that* particular meaning in which I made my comment.  You already know this, though. Whether you think the phrasing is grammatically or technically...
Apple won the PC wars. Just not in the way anyone really expected. Doing vertical development *right* = a superior product. And you can happily charge for it.
Amazing numbers. So what does Satya Nadella throw? Chairs? Disparaging comments about raises for women in the workplace? Kinect units? I'm all confuzzled.
The moment Apple confirmed and showcased their watch, is the moment MS' watch fantasies ran aground in the rough sea of reality. Microsoft can launch it TOMORROW, and no one will really care. Just like it is with their entire mobile lineup.
