Assuming those Fandroids can make it out of their mother's basements and do without Cheetos and Mountain Dew for an evening.
I really don't understand what capitalism has to do with the problem. But then again I'm white and don't quite understand what the problem is. I've had some black friends lecture me on white privilege and how I had it easy and stuff. My mom was a waitress and my dad was a maintenance man and they worked hard to give us a better life. I was able to go to college and started my own businesses. Nobody ever gave me anything. We didn't resort to crime and we certainly respected...
Aww... did someone knock the crown off of precious baby King Zuckerberg?   Wake up there Mark. People are frustrated with getting spammed by advertisements, game requests and other crap. I hope Apple comes out with something that's free and ad-free and your little empire will collapse.
I don't think it's quite that.  I think think that their general level of quality has remained about the same.  I think the issue is caused by a product of their success.  For instance, when you are building a few million devices per quarter, supporting them and spending time in manufacturing is easier.  I think the iPhone 6 launch legitimately stressed things a bit.  First, there are a LOT of OS versions happening at once. Apple is cranking out code at an unprecedented...
I'm pretty careful with my 6+ and have it in a case with no screen protector. I haven't noticed anything until I read this article. Took a look at the screen when it's off and yep... there's a hairline scratch.  The phone was never dropped and never abused in anyway. About one month old.  Hmm... This story might have legs.   My iPhone 4S also has a scratch on the screen, but seriously that's how old now?
Having a customer sign is a CYA (cover your arse) rule by retailers and there seems to be widely accepted determinations when one is required. Most retailers around here (Pennsylvania) require a signature on purchases of more than $25. Some require it all the time. Some (like Apple) don't require it at all.  I think it's just a legal safeguard with no actual merit.
I disagree. Since they control generally the entire OS stack, they could write (and probably already have written) OS X to run on ARM.  In addition, they could also make the OS operate on multiple ARM processors concurrently. While it probably wouldn't be as fast as a high clock rate x86 processor, it would be able to handle a lot without lag.  With the optimizations Apple has been making to iOS and OS X (Safari performance, Javascript engines, Metal, etc) it wouldn't...
I still think it's not going to happen. It wouldn't contribute to the halo effect.  They would rather you use an Apple Watch or iPhone to complete the transaction.  It probably doesn't make fiscal sense for the consumer either.  It would need: • BLE hardware and pairing capability• Application processor of some type• Secure enclave to store credit card information and fingerprints• TouchID sensor with sapphire cover• Stylish aluminum enclosure• Batteries and power...
That would be un-Apple like. They don't like additional cables and clutter.  It would probably be added to Continuity next year so when you make a purchase, it will trigger the Apple Pay screen on your iPhone.  That's because Laptop/Desktop doesn't have the hardware to contain the secure element.  I think the big issue is to make sure this can be done securely.
CCompared to quantity and profit, yes.
