Darwinian theory has nothing to do with individual behavior. It's not about "someone" adapting or not. It's about species.

This is a common misunderstanding of Darwin's theory.

Would one who is unable to adapt not be considered weak?

Actually, you're stating a misunderstanding of Darwin's theory, as well.

Both the weak and the strong eventually die. Those who adapt die just as much as those who don't die.

HOWEVER, over time, a sub-species that can adapt to new conditions is more likely to have more offspring before dying than a sub-species that can not adapt.

I agree (unfortunately) regarding IOS 6. But I do want to say that whatever voodoo they did with 5.1 has had a *sensational* impact on my first gen iPad: not a single Safari crash since upgrading, and it's smooth as silk once more. Not sluggish at all. Basically, they saved they device for me; it had become so unstable in the last couple of months that I was about to ditch it in favor of an 11" Air. Not any more!
