  • GOP Race and 2016 Election Thread

    Of course, when you define having a different opinion as mental illness, everyone is going to seem sick.  But when you think the whole world is sick, it's really you.

    It's you buddy.  Get help.

    Everyone else, since TS seems to be ban-impervious for some reason, I urge you to consider:

    It works really well at cutting out the ranting idiot.  Except when other people quote the ranting idiot, spreading the disease.  Vaccinations work better the more people are vaccinated.

    So spread the word!

  • Apple-issued developer certificate expires, causing crashes in 1Password and other apps

    Very shoddy work by Apple.

  • Which Apple W1-equipped headphones are right for you?

    None of them have the ANC so... none. If only Bose QC35 had Apple W1...
    What's ANC?
    Active Noise Control.

    Not worth the bother if you ask me.

  • Apple announces thinner MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Touch ID, USB-C ports starting at $1799

    RAM still maxes out at 16GB?  That's disappointing.

  • The Democratic Party is on Fire...

    He responded to my Louise Mensch post with that?  Why? 

    "lol" at four people dead and dozens injured?

    Low-life pond scum who wouldn't know class if it chewed his nose off.  "Get wrecked" yourself, you fucking psycho.

    Good.

    I doubt it'll take the train completely off the track, but where there's a chance of impeachment and/or arrest any rational person should be gunning for it.

    Such a shame that even if you ditch the charlatan you'll still be stuck with Pence.
    That is positively unhinged.  We should be gunning for arrest and impeachment?  For what? Let me guess...conflicts of interest that don't exist under the law?  Using executive authority as explicitly proscribed by law?  Saying mean stuff on Twitter?  Yeah, that's totally worth putting the country through that.   It's also a fantasy.  The GOP controls Congress, so short of Trump being caught taking a bribe or going "House of Cards" on someone on the metro line, it won't happen.  Given the Dems current behavior and prospects, they have little to no chance of retaking even the Senate, much less the House--which is where Articles of Impeachment have to arise.  

    Unfortunately not.

    However, conspiracy with a foreign state is something a person can be impeached for, and if Trump instructed Flynn, or other aides to collaborate with Russia, either to influence the election, or to engage in pre-inauguration diplomacy, as seems eminently plausible, then that is a definite possibility. Even Republicans in the House and Senate would balk at that.

    Also, I think I was pretty clear in saying it was currently a slim chance (though I think the chances are growing daily), so less of the "unhinged" thanks. The continued denial of the Trump fans that there is anything to be concerned about in the ever escalating charges of Russian coziness is the only things that qualifies as unhinged here.

    Even worse: You'll have Pence, and still be stuck with outright Neo-Nazi Bannon, who's already conning his way into being firmly entrenched (whoopsie Trump didn't know he was signing Bannon into the National Security Council? How the hell did that happen…hmm.)
    I would imagine that if Pence succeeds Trump he'd ditch Bannon. I don't think Pence is totally on board the Trump train, he's just riding out the stuff that he doesn't agree with in order to get the stuff he does agree with through. I think Bannon and Bannon's fascist leanings are very much in the former pot.
    I tend to agree with this. But I'd add that Pence is along for the ride because he knows eventually Congress will turn on Trump and then he steps into the role. 
    Probably right there. Seems like it's just a matter of time at this point.

    Hopefully Pence will at least bring some competence and dignity back to the office, even if his policy goals are equally (though differently) awful.

  • Bloomberg attacks Apple TV as failing to be "a groundbreaking, iPhone-caliber product"

    Got to come down more on the Gurman side of this, the Apple TV is a damp squib in its current incarnation; it lacks anything particularly compelling, and Apple have failed to deliver any compelling content or means of accessing that content.  Gaming and non-TV apps are little more than a distraction from the failure to significantly progress the platform in any way except the price since the Apple TV 2 launch over 5 years ago, and there's little to suggest that Apple have anything to improve the situation.

    This would be one of those occasions where "Apple needs and deserves plenty of criticism" instead of blind faith and defensiveness.

  • Google radically scales back glassy new HQ plans, unveils conventional corporate building ...

    Seriously, who cares?  The worth of a company is not measured by its HQ architecture or profligacy.

    if you think this is a sign that Google is in trouble then you're as nuts as anyone who would think Apple were in trouble given the same news.

    Google are fine, Apple are fine, and this Draco-Balboa grudge match the tech press wants to forment is non-existent. They're healthy competitors, and they push each other to be better. Be grateful for that.
