DED needs to learn to write a title. These could be summaries, bullet points, even tweets, but are simply too contorted, contentious and convoluted to be headlines. You're making them work too hard, DED! Those headlines -- I can spot one of your articles simply by reading those click-bait, awkward hulks. (The follow-up op-eds are also reliably fan-boish but there's loads of good info buried in there for those willing to take the time to read it. Edit: loads of good info...
Since we're quoting wikipedia:   Steal: the illegal act of taking another person's property without that person's freely-given consent. Theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it.   You're simply engaging in misdirection to say, well, yeah, I took it but, hey, look over there - it's still there. Or you can dress it up by saying "copyright infringement" or "industrial...
  In before after the fighting starts. I would just like to note that setting worldwide prices can't be simple. These comments that follow could be an opportunity to share proposals for how a multi-national like Apple might handle things. Price/exchange stability is in the interest of consumers but in a changing world, how can this ever remain. Price rises are going to make people upset. What's better is to understand why it's happening so you're better prepared next time.
 I like that analogy very much.

Does that mean download an app, don't like it and you can request a refund? Also, "Digital goods are explicitly exempted from those regulations, however, likely signaling that Apple's move is a voluntary one." I'm probably missing something in here but everything is delivered digitally from the app store.
Wow, wow. Thanks for the screenshot, Xian. I stand corrected. That's the first time I've heard/seen Microsoft bold enough to claim that. Of course, there is some careful terminology that any AI reader would be able to see through. This is more like "you don't need to buy it cause we'll give it to you" not "oh, you don't really need it." And while it is true any computer can get malware, Mac OS X is still years ahead of Windows.
 Who are you quoting? I can't imagine Microsoft giving that advice.
Careful. Win 8.1 is not a good time to introduce anyone to Surface Pro! Edit: and by not a good time I mean it's a horrible time! Win 8.1 with its "Modern" environment and traditional desktops is a astonishingly complicated. (source: my experience supporting Windows users.)
Most money managers bungled stock picks in 2014, missing out on huge gains   Fixed that for you. The truth is that actively managed funds are trailing indexes by a large margin in the last few years. Letting it ride on a large basket lowered your risk and broadened the exposure to gains in this continued bull market. They probably would have done much better by betting all on AAPL, of course, but no one can make predictions especially about the future!
