Profile... pictures... are... too... large... can't... continue... to... function...   Seriously, "Adjust Size" in Preview is your friend.
Yeah, look how well "metrics" (quotas) worked for Circuit City!  Gosh, I only hope Apple can install more vultures selling me Macs who can keep their jobs only if they move product.  That's the kinda of person that builds a lifelong bond between buyer and brand!   Idiots.  What works is letting Apple sell itself.  They're already selling tons per square foot.  No reason to squeeze the blood from the turnip.
    Yeah, the logic here makes no sense whatsoever.  Sounds like the reseller site trying to get some free pub: "Think iPhones are expensive?  They are!  Buy a non-iPhone! SUPER CHEAP!"   I mean, when New Coke came out, people didn't say, "Screw you guys; I'm dumping all my Classic Coke and buying Pepsi!"  They bought Classic Coke to horde.   Horrible reasoning skills, but successful marketing ploy, I guess.
  Unless it's this.  We're told Jobs was on top of several years' worth of new products, at least in general, yet the small iPad is still just something he's essentially upgraded to "not 100% against".   At some point, it stops being Jobs' company.  I think we're close.  Nothing inherently wrong with that.
Apple has notably pitted its frenemies against each other, such as in partnering with Google to develop and popularize the WebKit browser   I'm not sure that's accurate.  I'd never heard of a "partnership", and couldn't Google it up quickly or see it on the Wikipedia entries for Chrome or WebKit.  Doesn't mean it's wrong, but I think it is [wrong].   Open Source projects don't necessarily require partnership.  That's their beauty.  It's a passive partnership...
Oh right, prepping Excel file contents for export to an RDBMS using a process where some business logic is involved is useless.   Look, they're just different tools.  There's nothing wrong with having good, potentially overlapping tools.  vba makes Office more useful for many of us -- I can do whatever I want inside of a spreadsheet with tools I already know inside and out pretty quickly without being an Excel power user.   And gosh, please heavens, don't even stick me...
  Exactly.  Dan Knight at Low End Mac has a great article showing the history of Office releases (and the release of its precursors) on the Mac here: http://lowendmac.com/musings/12mm/office-2013-panic.html    
In my best Admiral Stockdale voice:   This sure makes copyleft look like a smart idea.
    But they make Android handsets, kk?   The reason they're out of Brazil first is the same reason why Apple was in Brazil last -- you have to have a Brazilian factory to avoid the tariffs.  Your sales can't just be good, they have to be enough to support a factory to stay in that market.
Well, the hard drive probably is upgradeable, though not easily.  The Airs have upgradeable HD, just not RAM.
