Ah, ok. Yeah, I have that with some posters, I used to cringe, curl my toes, or worse, respond. I have learned to not do any of those things anymore, though there are a few people here who stand out that I just cannot 'get used to'.

>>important: this doesn't apply to jr, which I might've implied here. And my reference to Mr. Darling was merely to your 'sshhhh'; and when I read it now it seems I think he didn't bring in good info, which is not the case, IMO.
I’d rather have a better product than a better price.

Unfortunately, the name of the new company, although technically accurate, leaves a lot to be desired...

"Sample"

May be all "exes" will unite and the company will appear )) It would be interesting )

They left out the box that says "Copy whatever Apple is doing".

   Apple develops an improved programming language.  Google copied Java.  Everything you need to know, right there.

 

    AT&T believes their LTE coverage is adequate

I am desperately in need of a device I can look at while I catch my breath that will confirm that I have been exercising. I can just never be sure.

I also find it difficult to gauge my overall calorie consumption. My (digital) scale is only accurate to the nearest half pound.

Is this guy just trying to reinvent the Internet? We have the pieces. What we need are the new functions, not more information.

Oh, you thought all the work done to increase information collection was being done for the benefit of users?

It was one of Google's top engineers who was brought on board to improve Siri three years ago. Look up Gummi Hafsteinsson. All these guys use talent from their competitors to improve services or create new ones.

Done right, it could be controlled from my iPad.

Yeah, and I'd like my bread to wander over from my pantry and climb into the toaster, on command from my shower, but ain't gonna happen.....

Simple answer: Make a lot of money, wake up whenever you please and waste as much time as you want making tea and toast or have someone make it for you. No need to automate anything.

In general, I agree. But I consider Apple a special case. Apple really is different in both large and small ways. Perhaps as Steve recedes further into the past that will change, but for those of us who have been with them since even before the bad old days, it is a corporate entity with something as close to a soul as such things CAN have. I do have a strong sense of loyalty to them both as a customer now and an employee in the past.

I think the simpler way is to start using the verb 'to google' for your above definition instead of the current 'to look up'.
to google: verb ... meaning to steal, often in a violation of trust.

Examples:

"Hey, did you just google my exam answers you little s###t?"

"You bastard, you googled my design!"

I think they have a anti-hire people from each other policy for which they were sued for a month or so ago.

Apple and Google apparently used to have a non-poaching agreement (along with some others) but that's no longer in play.
