Just continuing the MS tradition of one good OS followed by an underwhelming/bad OS.

  Not so in this case.  Apple's warranty and service rules can indeed be considered deficient according to Chinese law on such matters.  Chinese law requires a reset of warranty period when the customer is given a replacement product when the original was brought in for service.  The law also requires that the replacement product has to be new, not refurbished  Apple's rule does not conform to these requirements.   This is no different than European countries suing Apple...

Window 8's new interface is a confusing mess.
  Romney "helped" those companies by selling off non-performing parts, relocated manufacturing to 3rd world country, then took advantage of tax loopholes.  Let's see you come up a way to apply those strategies to help US government.
