  • Unlike Roomba, Apple confirms it won't upload, share or sell your home data from HomePod

    I doubt that an acoustic "print" of a room would be in any way as immediately salable as a physically measured one. 
    Blind bats don't crash into the walls of a cave. Or into anything for that matter.
    At the risk of sounding pedantic, bats aren't blind.  Whilst they use echo location to locate prey and navigate in darkness, their eyesight is actually better than ours.

  • President-elect Trump considers potential Apple manufacturing in US a 'real achievement'

    Or he likes the woman, he sees the woman likes him, and he makes his move immediately.

    Waiting or not waiting has nothing has got nothing to do with consent.
    If someone punches you in the face, and then AFTER the event you don't explicitly tell them not to, have you consented to being punched in the face?

    Same logic.

    You are basically saying there is nothing wrong with saying you can sexually assault women because you're famous.  Despicable.
    Donald Trump; ”When you're a star, they'll let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy.”

    let (lĕt) v. To give permission or opportunity to; allow:

    Twisting words.

    Great for your agenda. Not so much your credibility.
    Talking of twisting words and credibility, I see you missed out the other part of that quote:

    "I don't even wait"

    In other words, he just does it, and if they don't complain he thinks that's some form of consent.

    Try that defense in a court of law and see how far it gets you.

    What he said was that when you're famous, women let you do anything to them, even let you grab them by the pussy. Is there something wrong with that statement? 
    You are basically saying there is nothing wrong with saying you can sexually assault women because you're famous.  Despicable.

    Would you find it OK if he had said "When you're famous you can rape women"?  Because the principle is exactly the same, its just the level of abuse that is different.
     If Trump told a friend that in 10 years, he'd be dating my daughter, why would I be offended? You should stop being a beta male pussy.
    The fact you'd find it acceptable that a 70 year old man would look at a 14 year old and make a sexually based comment speaks volumes about you.  I don't know if you actually have a daughter, but if you do I pity her.
    Are you a male feminist?
    If you mean would I like to see women treated with respect and not be subjected to such lewd behavior, count me in.

  • How the UK's Brexit vote to leave Europe affects Apple

    crowley said:

     The Leave side still have no plan whatsoever 
    I keep hearing criticism of Leave for not having a plan, but it wasn't their responsibility to put forward a plan, just an argument to vote Leave.  It was a cross party campaign so even if they did have a plan they wouldn't have had any authority to implement it, it would have been down to the Prime Minister and his government to implement any plan.

    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.
