I see no dilemma here. If we are to have that freedom guaranteed in our Constitution, the Government is simply going to have to find a way to do their business without violating Constitutional Rights. Which is more important to you ? Personal liberty or giving in to the road to a Police State ? Better ahundred guilty men go free than one innocent man be unconstitutionally stripped of his rights. This is still a "free" country, isn't it?

As for leading the tech industry. I disagree.
Clearly you know so much. If only Apple knew what you did. We bow before your great intellect you wise man of incredible logic and foresight.
I’m only surprised you didn’t spend more time explaining how much you love Huawei.
How is Apple already leading the tech industry? That is baloney and I only mentioned the tip of the iceberg!
Let's be realistic.
If Apple had had the foresight, it would have snapped up Netflix long ago instead of having to invest billions - for other companies - to provide content and try to establish itself in yet another saturated market!
Are you implying that Apple wasn't late to streaming? Where was the foresight? Spotify since 2008. Apple Music since 2015. Apple chose a different path originally. Just like with screen size.
The reality is that even a few short years ago Apple had no idea what it was going to do or where it was headed. It was firmly entrenched in iPhone and trying to leverage services more profitably. It had Apple TV as a hobby, the Mac business and iPad. Then Apple Watch - CE! The tech industry spans far more than CE!
It hoarded (thanks to iPhone) and that's fine but don't try to make claims that don't even begin to hold water. However much you love Apple.
When Apple starts producing cutting edge technology from the top right down to the bottom and impacting a far broader swathe of technologies, you might be able to make such claims but right now they are completely out of place.
Instead of going on the attack, explain why you feel you can make those affirmations and then we will see how your explanations hold up.
I am a real Apple FanBoy, but this sure seems like BS to me. OK during the Warranty period. "You want me to stand behind this machine, take it to an authorized facility".
But, once out of warranty, I should be able to take it any place I choose and there should NOT be any impediments to that. If I CHOOSE to put in cheapo parts, that's my business. I hope the inevitable lawsuits prevail on this one.
Turkey is a member of NATO and a primary US ally in the Middle East, so Obama doesn't have much leeway in whether he gets to "support" the country. But if you don't like dictators, think about the Republican nominee and his bromance with Putin and his accolades for Saddam Hussein. The US has its own conservative right wing & religious fundamentalists who been marching toward converting the nation into this exact same type of religious-dictatorship. I hope you feel the same way about freedom in the US as you express regarding Turkey.
Absolutely agree. I wish folks here had to take a 9th grade civics test to vote.
I bought a late 2012 iMac through the Refurbished program. Still out powers these latest offering ! It has a quad core i7 at 3.1 Ghz and 16MB RAM and a 1 TB Fusion Drive. I thought surely the speeds would be triple this by now.
