And yes, Lightning cables are one of the flimsiest cables imaginable and are not near durable enough for their intended purpose.

Also, 4 police officers are dead tonight, anyone think we'll hear from Tim Cook on that?
Treat others like you want yourself to be treated. What is happening in the US is a spiral down to total anarchy. If people don't trust the police who will they trust. Themselves of course, and their right to use their own hands, if they think they will not get a fair trial. If a felon thinks he will most probably be executed, what has he to loose if he shoots some cops?
So is the GTA going to be just jailtime after a fair trial or is it going to include murder as well. Chose for yourself...
Desperate people do desperate things. A good question: Is this the result of upper IQ limit on people on the force and lack of gun control?

Soli said:1) Jobs was a visionary, I don't think anyone would deny that. I also think it's arguable that no one else could've turned Apple around, but I also think it's arguable that without Jobs having Cook there's no way Apple could've grown at the level they did or operate as efficiently, all of which have led to their amazing success as a company. An idea without execution is a fruitless endeavour. As it's already been stated, Jobs picked Cook for a reason.
2) I'm not a fan of the think different mentality. I'm a fan of what Jobs said in a Q&A months before the "Think different" campaign launched. As I recall, it was a Macworld Expo circa 1997 when one guy asked him about Apple dropping AppleTalk in favor of Ethernet. This gentleman made a comment about Apple thinking different and clearly didn't care for Apple falling in line with the rest of the industry for networking. Jobs replied something to the fact, "It's not about thinking different, it's about thinking better. If there's a better option out there we'll use it." Being different for its own sake will ultimately lead to failure. (I'll see if I can find the clip.)
edit: Go to 12m:17s for the specific part I'm referring in the gentleman's follow up question. His first question is at 09m:25s where Jobs then references networking.
Bonus: Right before he takes that guy's question Jobs states that when the media shorts Apple that he buys AAPL stock.
Apples "after Jobs era" I see that the value is shifting here a bit towards the more traditional corporate risk taking values (still not at the same level yet though) and weight is not equaly distributed in a balanced way on what in "we can do/what should do" vs executional perfection with the later getting more and more attention at the loss of the other. I think Jobs best qualities were vision and strategic ability and keeping difficult things as simple as possible. The first iteration of apple cloud services was a good example of how not to do it and Jobs ultimately took the initiative to fix it. The problem after Jobs is that things are getting too complex and really need simplification. The icloud is a good example of how difficult things are to use now.

Have you ever travelled? Ever taking a multi-leg flight or a long car journey? Of course you'll have one end in the charger, one end plugged into headphones. Heck even just driving to work I oftentimes put the charger and the audio jack in. It's a pretty major inconvenience. And wireless headphones, whilst cool and all, are the biggest pain in the butt going. it's just one more thing that needs charged unnecessarily.

Um... Did you have trouble following the reasoning I gave you in my original post? Or the ones following that? What part of 'advancing a conversation by providing a valid counterargument' (I am paraphrasing) are you having trouble figuring out?

The Leave side still have no plan whatsoever
The blame for a lack of a plan and the political vacuum we're now in can be placed squarely at Cameron's feet. He (and probably Osborne as well) shouldn't have taken a side in this campaign (which is what Harold Wilson did in the 1975 referendum) and had a plan for whatever the result was which could have been put into action immediately last Friday. Instead he put his lot in with one side and now his side has lost he's left himself with no authority.
Its like observing a kid who says: "I wont brush my teeth because I don't like it", just to be angry at himself later for having 9 holes in his teeth later and his moral hangover about the fact that it was his own choice and he now needs to have massive drilling.

Apple is widely expected to announce a pair of new iPhone handsets at a special event this fall, with rumors pegging a debut in the first week of September. Unlike past iPhone product cycles, this year Apple is thought to carry over the design language introduced in 2014 with iPhone 6.
The old ones where even better, atleast you cuold upgrade them with standard old meshing to snug the fit so they dont constantly drop out of the ear. So annoying.... I wouldn't pay a dime for those. NOT even if i buy the phone because i still pay for them in the phone.
