 Of course not.  The doctor is either up front about the conflict and the gay couple moves on, or if they insist, he tells the couple: Look, this is a really important surgery and I don't want to risk screwing it up due to my emotional conflict. You really should find another surgeon for your important operation. Lets not put our opposing views into the mix. You really need a different surgeon, sorry.  Simple as that. The only time a problem would arise is if someone, or...
 I'm old so I looked it up in case I remembered wrong. :)  I hate quoting Wikipedia but I figure they probably don't screw up what might have been taught in civics class if they still taught civics: "The 1968 act expanded on previous acts and prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, and since 1974, gender; since 1988, the act protects people with disabilities and families with children. The...
 Curious as to why would a negro want to go to an establishment that doesn't want them there?  But if I own a business and would prefer not to sell a cake to a colored (or God forbid a colored and a white) couple that should by my right.  If they don't like it they can get a cake from someone else who will happily make one for them. Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.Edmund BurkeAs someone who was alive (and "colored") when fucktards said the same thing...
 You're worried about Apple's ability "to deliver" based on the fact that Apple has chosen not to update the mini when you wanted them to because you're still running a machine from 2007. Yah, that's concern trolling beyond the usual "I wish Apple would make an xMac" grousing.  Nobody but Apple knows what their next product is.   As for your comment it is equivalent to: The new kind of product that you speak of, if it's a phone, will fail to capture my attention.  I...
 No.  Just doing Haswll is a spec bump and likely a silent update where one day it simply appears in the Apple Store.  Only if there is a significant redesign will they bother with any sort of event.  If it happens near another event it might or might not get a mention.  Concern troll much?   The mini is a very minor product in Apple's lineup.  They could decide to simply not update at all until fall because they see too much overlap in product lines between the mini and...
Oh, because they also banned the Starbucks payment app or the paypal payment app or the Visa Qiwi payment app or...oh wait, what were you saying again? I forgot.
 Given that the Atom has 8 cores and is relatively cheap the A1100 isn't compelling at all given that the C2750 is shipping now and the A1100 isn't. And Google disagrees with that last sentence.  You can parallelize only so far before you reach negative returns so performance per core is still relevant.  It's not going to be facing the 2013 C2759 (Avoton) but late 2014 Denverton.  More importantly there's no issue with software needing to be rebuilt for ARM.
 Your nuanced command of the English language is simply awe inspiring.  Lesser mortals might have thought that the phrases "The jury is out" and "It’s impossible to evaluate the long-term potential of HSA at this point" means the same thing as "it is far too early to pass judgement" but you evidently have teased out the impressive differences between those phrases.  The point here is that HSA is unproven in the way that matters: shown to provide significant real world...
 Christ, there was a desktop refresh EVERY year since 2006 (intel transition) including a redesign in 2007 (Aluminum), 2009 (Unibody) and 2012 (Unibody Slim) for the iMac, 2010 for the Mini and 2013 for the Mac Pro.  At which point did Apple "ignored the desktop product line for so long"?   In what way is a Mini poorly suited to act as a media server?  No major changes except in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013.  What huge need?  Most office machines need a few USB...
 The jury is out whether HSA (as defined by AMD) is the future or not. "It’s impossible to evaluate the long-term potential of HSA at this point; we’ve seen three feature-specific demonstrations of a capability that Intel hasn’t necessarily been able to optimize for. If these early figures are any indication, HSA can dramatically accelerate certain operations, but the amount of improvement varies a great deal from application to application. If HSA-enabled applications can...
