People he managed liked him a lot. That's telling.
Apple maps is much improved. Silent success story.
You need to get a map and work out that there are different countries in the world. I was giving an anecdote, as colour, to what everybody should know before they start taking crap -- the iPhone's original model wasn't selling very well until a price drop and until they increased their carriers. Of course it didn't.Therefore my point stands. This launch can't be compared to the iPhone because Apple has far greater number of die hard fans. As well as more countries in its...
No it wasn't popular outside the few then Apple die hards , including me, who lined up in America but not in the UK. There were queues for 10.0. A queue, or the lack of it, is not any indication. Its an anecdote. Including my anecdote.However the statistics show that it wasn't setting the world alight until the price reductions and the 3G was the real success. You even linked to a piece which proved that point, and you are still not slinking away with tails between your...
It's not really up to the person making the fairly normal claim (the iPhone didn't really take off for a year and Apple didn't have the fan base then that it had now) to provide proof. Anybody who knew the slightest bit about the iPhone's trajectory would know that. Extraordinary claims need extraordinary proof, ordinary claims do not.To rub salt in your wounds here is what that article saysDespite drawing a horde of fans, the iPhone didn’t immediately charm its way into...
Yeah. Any link?And since I was in a moderately sized city of 1 million people and 5 people showed up my evidence, however anecdotal trumps or is as good as yours.The original iPhone wasn't selling in fact until they dropped the price by $200. Then it took off.
By corporate socialism I mean the subsidy of the consumer by providers at the behest of monoplies.The free market needs rules. If every corporation ran their own roads and stopped competitors using those roads you would end up with monopolies dominating along certain routes.Net neutrality means that if I pay for bandwidth I get it. From anywhere I want. Not that certain providers I also pay for get their bits slowed because they haven't bribed local monoplies. The fact...
Yeah an OS written like that would update with 4 features every 20 years.No excuse for the crash though although to be fair to Apple I have seen exactly 0 panics since 10.0 on any macs.
Hmm, I dont agreee. Firstly those cleanup scripts can be useful, secondly the OS can wire down memory and get starved of other resources in some cases. Errant daemons can be cured of their problems by rebooting them, and the easiest way is to reboot ( or for user processes logout). 
I turned up at launch day in a reasonably sized city in the UK ( this was a few months after the US launch and was the O2 store as there was no Apple store in that city then) to see a crowd of 5 people, count them, also queueing. Including a guy I texted and who also was an Apple fan. The iPod helped a bit I suppose, but not much. I know Apple haters who admit they bought an iPod shuffle or something, but everybody with an iPhone is an Apple fan ( with the exceptions of...
