  • Apple retail employees invited to evaluate watchOS 3 wheelchair activity tracking

    Once again Tim Cook is putting whiny lazy minorities before maximizing ROI.

    Steve would never let this happen.

    Ayn Rand Akbar!

    Just kidding.  

    The idea of making technology accessible to everyone gets lost when people worry about spec sheets and what bloggers say we need.

  • New Chinese rules say Apple's App Store must track identities of users, developers

    China wants first world money, but wants to keep second world mentality.

    I yearn for the day where people don't feel they need a parade to prove their worth.
    Is that a joke about St. Patrick's Day parades, Ireland?

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

    prokip said:
    I don't often disagree with you DED, but I do this time.  You say "really quite unthinkable and ill considered-leap" by the British people to leave the Eurozone.  This is totally NOT TRUE !! The Brits have had it with the unelected Eurocrats of Brussels for many years.  They have been thinking about this for over 30 years since being cleverly taken into the Common Market in the 70's.  Now finally they have flicked the birdie at the unrepresentative socialist swill in Europe that has tried to control so much of their society for so many years.  And as the 5th largest economy in the world they will have bugger-all trouble making their own way quite successfully, if not better than they have in the past 30 years.

    The British bulldog is back in business!!   Go Britain, go !!

    And a warning to you dear in the USA.  This is another reason why Trump will be elected in November in a landslide.  People ares sick of being treated like fools by the PC arrogance of the political elite.
    It's ill considered in the sense that the campaign was based on a series of lies, and planned out about as well as the Bush II Iraq War. Which is to say, there was no strategy beyond 'lets do this!" resulting in a clusterfuck of backwardly implemented strategy that wasn't even anticipated by those pushing for it. 

    You can suggest that leaving the EU has some ideological merits, but if you had any real knowledge of the issues involved you couldn't be so ignorantly confident that everything is great.

    Essentially, a bunch of ignorant, ill informed old white people were asked to make a decision they didn't understand in the slightest, based on largely false propaganda, and the result is that the working class youth of the UK is now screwed over because many of their options are now erased. Also, those white rural people now have limited buying power and their property is plunging in value. Going forward, none of the things they were promised (free money, an end to immigration, and end to bureaucracy and rule by an elite class of morons) will materialize. They're all just screwed by their own simpleminded conservative credulity.  

    Which is pretty much what middle American Fox watchers hope to do to the United States, if they are given the opportunity. 

     
    Yeah.  I read that the votes went roughly by age, with old people wanting to make Brittania Great Again, and younger people worried about the future in a world economy.

  • Chinese bureau finds Apple copying smartphone patents with iPhone 6 design

    Move all manufacturing out of China and into India.

    Let's start flexing our muscles and stop getting pushed around for some BS reasons.

    Chinese IP Properties = Oxymoron 
    Do you mean we should Make America Great Again?(TM)  Stand up to the Chinese?  Make America first?  And other vague sayings that don't really solve any problems?
