I've been having trouble with delete/backspace in ConnectBot. I'm trying out Full Keyboard now (it has dedicated dpad and control character modes). Delete works, at least, although flipping through all the modes gets old very quickly.
Right, that would be the "or they know what they're doing" part of my original comment.
These Xeons are currently over $1K each, at least on Newegg.
All but the highest-end iMac are dual-core. The lowest-end Mac Pro is quad-core. If someone is going to drop $5K+ on a Mac Pro with 12 cores, they either have money to throw around or they know what they're doing.
Engadget has a great summary here. The "third way" resembles what some were discussing in the earlier thread.
Okay, I'll play.
When a Republican changes his mind, he's always believed the way he believes now.
When a Democrat changes his mind, he's a flip-flopper with no loyalty or conviction.
When a Republican raises taxes, it's only temporary. Republicans are the champions of small government, lest we forget.
When a Democrat raises taxes, he's a tax-and-spend liberal, a chronic symptom of an overgrown government.
It appears that you are no slouch at linguistic gymnastics yourself.
...really, Apple has been doing just fine without Steve Jobs, and the iPhone is so popular that they can probably phone in (no pun intended) the 3.0 update and be set for another six months or more. Apple isn't in jeopardy of losing a significant number of customers to Palm until the bugs are worked out in webOS and their app store is fleshed out. RIM needs to hurry the Storm 2 along and from what I gather their app store needs some time as well.
That being said, I don't think Apple is going to phone it in. They've been quite prolific these past 10 years or so and I've seen no evidence of that changing any time soon. I expect to see a cheaper iPhone with beefier hardware and a reduced rate plan in the next few weeks (not necessarily at WWDC), and I expect to see Core i5 iMacs and Snow Leopard by Fall. Incremental improvements, to be sure, but enough to stay competitive.
O'Reilly is even more backwards and loud mouthed than most people his age. I can't wait for the old generation to just die out already. Their legacy superstitions and bigotry have encroached far beyond what any reasonable person would find appreciable.
Uh oh. I think that includes me.
You've never seemed particularly loud-mouthed or bigoted to me. Don't go away, we need you.

Did you just brute-force a joke on
