Don't people realize that "encrypted communication" is no more searchable than an in-person conversation? Why isn't the government demanding access to listen in on every single in-person conversation?? I mean I don't get the argument that everything that CAN be tracked SHOULD be tracked. The people who defend government behavior in this manner aren't thinking beyond the sensational headlines, the buzz words, and the common stories governments tell us these days about all the reasons they need access to every nook and crany of every person's life in order to "keep us safe." It's an easy road to keep going down, if you don't realize you've already started down it. I hope people wake up in their thinking and realize the world hasn't changed all that much since before 9/11. The main difference is that war is accepted as "common" and your privacy is accepted as "nonexistent." The threats haven't changed. Only people's willingness to give up a part of what they used to consider obvious rights in life. Oh right, for the sake of "national security" and "safety" it's all worth it, right?
I paid for the $29 dollar iPhone battery replacement after getting the "low performance mode" message. Had to bring the phone back in the VERY NEXT day because the battery had expanded, breaking the seal between the phone body and the screen.
Thankfully they were willing to replace the entire phone, even though it was out of warranty / AppleCare period.
But it still makes me wonder about the quality control on their batteries as of late.
As much as I hate to see Netflix prices creeping up more and more often, it's still far less than cable (at least at this point), and has so much content I watch, that I really feel like I get my money's worth even at $15.99.
Hopefully they can start creating more quality content, rather than just making a bunch of crap with a bit of good stuff mixed in.
I couldn't help but notice you were running the MBP on battery power. Its peak performance is only reached when the power adapter is connected, from what I understand.Sorry, I'm just going by the actual video, in which there is very clearly no power cord attached to the MBP, and in which the battery level is low and is not in a "charging" state.I mean, at 1:03 in the video you can't tell me it's plugged into power.In the video they even read out the exact value displayed on the screen as shown in the video. I'm sorry, I just don't understand how you can say it was plugged into power lol.Alright, I genuinely wasn't trying to pick a fight here. It was confusing seeing an unplugged computer, and I thought maybe the benchmarks had been run without being plugged in which would have made their results not quite as high as they could be.My bad
