If anything, as a non-native speaker, your responsibility to get it right is greater.
Do international business in something other than English. Let us know how that works.


I would like yo see you conversing on some forum in proper, let say, Russian? See how you will get it right. Yes, do some international business in other language than English, see how that works for you. Oops, you do not know other languages.

Refutation:
1. Subjective opinions aren't proof of anything
2. Retina laptops? Bigger iPhone screen? SSD? Doubling-down on Thunderbolt? Leading ultrabook design? Mac Pro?
3. Where would Samsung and Google and Microsoft be without Apple to follow?
4. What schedule are they supposed to keep--yours?
5. Let's see: 3 iPhone models, 2 iPad models, 3 types of Mac desktop, 2 types of MacBooks. Oh, just 1 Apple TV. Yeah, you're right: what a crying shame about Apple's refusal to sell more than 1 model of Apple TV. 

The mac pro is nice innovation. But its high end video/cad, and it took them so long to update that line that pros were starting to leave the platform. Its nice they did it, but its not gonna move a needle EPS wise.

I am not saying Apple does like Samsung and release dozens of phones per year, but I dont think wanting 3 NEW models per year means they spread all over the place. On the tv/game console side, they sure are taking there time.

Like 6 months ago, Tim said dont bet against Apple. Well I sure wish I would not have listen to him, because nothing interesting came out since. Where are those products in the pipeline? All i am seeing is a company that is slowing down with both feets on the breaks.

Seems stupid to say something about someone when you don't know diddly, huh? I also speak a tiny bit of Irish and can parse a few Japanese words, but I'm really looking toward Hindi next.

It appears you meant to type Ich haben Deutsch sprechen  which means "I have to speak German". No reason to use the verb "to have" in any other context but I think you were trying to say "I speak German" and that would be Ich spreche Deutsch and I know this because I actually speak German. Not sure what you mean by you can parse a few words in Japanese, but I would guess you have tried to memorize some terms from an anime song. Either you speak a language or you don't otherwise anyone able to order food at an Italian restaurant could also claim they can "parse" a few words in Italian. Kannst du das verstehen diesen Satz? Bitte geben Sie einen ganzen Absatz in Deutsch. Ich werde beurteilen Ihre Grammatik. Verwenden Sie keine Übersetzungs-Software. Das ist sehr leicht zu entdecken.

No, I typed what I meant, thanks. It's probable I meant gesprochen, but tense is hardly the primary concern here. You can excuse the perfectly valid lack of a past participle. I neither have to speak it nor do I speak it regularly as of late.

I am a tax attorney, and I can verify that some states charge sales tax on the full contract price. It only makes sense. Otherwise, the rest of the price goes untaxed and it creates a strong incentive to sell things under financing contract. For example, California and Nevada operate in this manner. So even though your iPhone 5 costs you $199, you pay sales tax on the entire $550 price of the phone, the same way you would if you had just purchased the handset without a contract. So in Nevada, for example, you would pay $199 + (0.0825*550) = 244.38, with $45.38 representing 8.25% sales tax on the entire contract price of $550.

it is nicht not niche and using a colloquial expression in German to call me crazy or not all there is a personal attack.  I am pretty sure personal attacks are not allowed in any language. I proved my point your German sucks, you couldn't even write "I speak german" correctly and try and make excuses.Sie haben noch nie gesprochen gut Deutsch.

Technically, you asked him if he "knows another language", which is correct. You didn't ask if he was fluent.

The other poster called a bunch of people idiots and used incorrect grammar, which is ironic. He then used a cop out that English isn't his primary language, which seems to be convenient, given the rest of his post was grammatically correct.

Nope, that was another poster not me. I simply pointed out his spelling and grammar mistakes in the German he typed. As to his "parsing" Japanese words and speaking Irish, God only knows what he means by that. Perhaps he learned to say Erin go bragh and now claims fluency.

Up to your old tricks, derailing the forum from story to something not related to the story. I look forward to you speaking/writing  Hindi.

Read the thread. Then apologize. Or continue to believe your drivel.

Btw do not use a translator, it always does it wrong..1tongue.gif (I think you were trying to say 'I still have to improve my grammar')

As for my comment it was more tongue and cheek, then personal to you.

As for the apology, If you thought I was attacking you personal, then I apologise 1wink.gif

 

Btw: Still waiting on my apology from you concerning the comments about iPhone 4, which I apparently made and you could not found them 1tongue.gif

 

P.S. If I tried to translate 'The tallest skil does not understand Hindi', google translator gives this सबसे बड़ा कौशल हिन्दी नहीं समझती, but translate it back, it actually says 'The greatest skill does not understand Hindi'
