I used FileMaker way back in the early 90s.  Since then, I've gone back to it from time to time, but haven't touched it in a few years.   It's a shame because there is a need for a simple database app on both OS X and iOS.   What I don't understand is why can't Apple bring FileMaker back in house and reboot it as follows:   Make it MySQL based.  Allow it to either run locally for personal database usage, or connected to a hosted MySQL database.  Allow...
  True, and a valid point.    However, something to think about with the Apple TV... It does allow an ethernet connection and does allow for a few GBs of buffering.  Both of these could help improve the experience.  The Apple TV has 8GB of flash, although a little of it is used by iOS and the apps.  Still, it can easily download a full HD 1080p movie over a connection that it wouldn't otherwise be able to do real-time.  I've been in situations where the connection was...
  It's a technicality in the phrasing, but I wanted to be clear, because it's actually very relevant to the case and written in the complaint that only employees are searched, not customers.   Also, many Apple Stores are like Starbucks... customers do go there to work.
  Not all of those statements are fully true according to the complaint.  For example, you wrote "People who carry bags into work at Apple are subject to search."  That should read "Employees who carry bags into work at Apple are subject to search."  Customers who carry bags into Apple are not searched according to the complaint.   There in lies the rub.  It's not a requirement of the location to go through a search.  It's a requirement of employees to be searched before...
  Everything you wrote is correct.  I've studied labor laws quite a bit and have had to go to court on both sides before.  However, while what you wrote is correct, it's not relevant to this case.    At issue is what is called compensable time and if you check with the US Department of Labor you'll see that while employers can require employees to show up at a location, dressed and ready to work; once on the job any amount of time that the employee is required to do any...
  Right, so you agree that the amount of time these people have claimed to have had to wait was unreasonable.    We have someone from Costco claiming 1 minute here, and you claiming no more than 3 minutes.  When I worked in retail, the amount of times at various locations was totally negligible.  However, as I stated over and over, IF THE CLAIM IS TRUE, then the wait the employees had to go through without compensation is unreasonable and Apple should either fix the...
  No, "they" are talking about up to 1.5 hours a week in uncompensated time.  What you do at Costco is irrelevant.  The suit is in regards to allegations that certain Apple Stores  are requiring employees to be searched for unreasonable amounts of time.  If the allegations are accurate, it does seem like a valid complaint.  These aren't salary positions, these are low-wage hourly positions and that time is fairly substantial.  It seems, again if true, that the stores have...
  You can fix the JIT issue with the Nitrous jailbreak tweak.  Personally, I still use Safari, but there are a variety of features that make using Chrome a different experience from Safari.
  Wow, I totally thought you were being sarcastic.  Maybe you were, but it seems to be missed by people here.   For those that don't get the sarcasm, Chrome isn't forcing anything.  In the Chrome settings, you can choose what links do...whether they open in the browser, or open in apps that you may have installed, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Drive, or Google+.  To be clear, in Safari, you don't have this option.  In Safari, a YouTube URL opens a YouTube page in Safari. ...
  I'm guessing here but it may be because the technology still needed a lot of R&D.   If Apple bought the company then it may have been too focused on developing for their own use which may only be a tiny fraction of the larger market for LM.  Apple would be faced with going into another business that's totally outside of its core, or remaining a smaller and more focused company that has exclusive use of the technology in the businesses it has.  Meanwhile additional...
