  • Comparison: Which Apple MacBook is right for you?

    Which current MacBook is right for me? Let's see, I'm going to medical school soon so I'll need a really long lasting battery for taking notes and studying all day... it would be nice to play a game or two at night to unwind, so it'll have to have a decent GPU... I don't mind a little extra weight as I'm a capable of lifting an additional pound or two... 

    So, which MacBook is right for me?

    NONE OF THEM!!!!
    The question of trolling aside, what on earth are you going on about? If you want a student notebook the Air or MB are clear choices. If you want something to play some games on occasionally get a MBP, which aside from the questionable Consumer Reports claim, scored favorably by reviewers for battery. But if you're at home playing games I don't know why you wouldn't plug it in...it's not like you can use it for 8 hours during the day and then expect to game all night on it. 
    I was attempting to impress that Apple does not make either a powerful computer or a computer (well... mainly the new MacBook Pro) with a great battery life in one machine. I got a PS4 for gaming and will just use my old equipment for school. Oh well, 1st world problems :)

  • Apple shareholder proposal for more executive compensation oversight coming to vote in 2017

    I have to say that I agree with this. Infinite pay decreases motivation and innovation. Personally, I don't believe any executive should gross more than 30x the amount of money paid to their lowest paid employee or contractor. 
    Price and wage control. Yeah, that always works. You socialists are hilarious.
    Socialism is a method of income distribution. Capitalism is a method of production. The two are not mutually exclusive and I would argue you need both for a healthy economy (consumers have money to spend and producers have money to expand).  

    You uneducated plebeians are hilarious.

  • Dead body found at Apple's Infinite Loop headquarters [ux3]

    Has nobody ever died at Apple before?, because I've been reading this site for many years and this is the first time that I can recall seeing such a headline about somebody dying. "Dead body found at" sounds like it's out of a Agatha Christie novel or something.

    Why would the emergency services be waved off? That sounds a bit odd.
    EMT here - Medical services are not called when the person in question is obviously deceased. This includes, but is not limited to: rigor mortis, obvious decomposition, cold body temperature in a warm environment, and decapitation - which would be both simultaneously awesome and horrible (probably the quarterly forecaster if this is the case).
