 She's not actually from either North or South Korea. If you were racially White and born in the US, would you view yourself English or  European? If you were racially Black would you consider yourself African? Beyond that there's the false assumption that ethnicity aligns someone with a corporation based on the location of that company's headquarters, which is in itself another weird form of nationalism. I was tempted to give your post a snippy response, but I'm a patient...
 Quote:That is unlikely for a couple reasons. The first is that this is a solder problem rather than a problem with the gpu itself. I'm not sure whether the specifications for the solder joint were influenced by AMD's (ATI is long gone) own specifications. On 2010 models they initiated a repair program on affected models by the 2 year mark. Unfortunately I can't find the 320m link anymore, so take it for what you will. To the best of my recollection it was limited to...
That comes up at times with the use of refurbished boards. At this point they probably don't have a lot of new logic board replacements. It's hard to know what the quality is like with refurbished boards. As I mentioned before the problem is with a weak solder joint. That's kind of why I objected to the nonsense about entitlement when people complain about a design flaw. So far the 2012s seem to be okay. If they either improved the cooling with the switch to rmbps or fixed...
Typically this is why I suggest the Apple Store if one is within reach. Third party repair centers may not be authorized to make such an offer. That is just fanboy tripe, and I think you know it.  The flat rate repair replaces a part that suffers from a design flaw with a refurbished part that contains the same design flaw. It's not really that much of a bargain, but it can be worthwhile to extend the life of a machine. You may not get another 3 years though. If you check...
As pointed out you would want to free up some space. 60GB is pretty small relative to present day uses of computers. If I'm not mistaken that would be the formatted capacity of the 64GB Air model. That came with 2GB of ram, which is tight. You can check that statistic by clicking the Apple logo in the upper left of your screen and on about this mac. My best guess is that you have one of those models, and that the lack of memory means that it often writes to disk. Marvin...
 Ah you saved me some typing :). Everyone goes straight to the topic of quotas. If Apple feels a portion of the overall population is underrepresented in its ranks, they should look at their recruiting practices. Nonsense such as quotas is just a lazy method that doesn't address the causes of the perceived problem.  Have you read many of his other recent posts? 
Non-compete agreements are unenforceable in California under most circumstances, as well as several other states. As I pointed out they can't legally take company IP with them. If they are actually sought after for their talents, they wouldn't need to do so anyway. What Apple and any other company can reasonably expect of their departing employees is that those employees do not take trade secrets with them. It's not reasonable for a company to restrict the employment of...
That is irrelevant. There is no reason to believe that the other companies will not face scrutiny. Ever notice how Apple garners a lot of attention from regulators? They are one of the largest in their industry, just like Verizon. When you grow to that size, shenanigans won't unless you have shill regulators. Regulators may not always have the resources to go after everyone simultaneously, but it's ridiculous for Verizon to deflect like that. This is something I hate about...
 Well in any case I would expect them to have more than just the internal. It's very costly to lose footage, so they are probably backing up as they go. With HDDs you would capture to Raid. It's ridiculous for anyone to suggest a large internal 2.5" HDD would be used for video capture, especially when considering their sensitivity to vibration. Given that they'll need on set backup anyway, I'm skeptical that many of them would opt to work off the internal drive, even on a...
 I'm not sure I understand you here. An NDA would cover confidential details of their projects as well as company IP. Their general knowledge and proven ability to solve problems should be enough to receive an offer of employment from another company. This doesn't just apply to Apple. Consider the example of military contractors. There is quite a lot that they can't take from one job to another, but that doesn't devalue their experience or track record. If the only...
