Or anybody else for that matter. Everything under the sun has prior art. Every "new" invention involves combining some prior technology with a spit-shine and then reselling it.

Apple is held to a standard that noone else in technology has ever been held to.

I'm glad that option is available to people who want to work that way, but it sounds way too rigid for me. I like being able to work on my schedule. What if I get on a roll and want to work later one night and then roll in late the next morning? I don't want the work/life balance Gestapo to padlock my keyboard at 5:00pm and then cattle prod me into the office at 9:00am the next morning. Seriously, it sounds horrible.

Are you claiming that Americans are stupid because we're tricked into working long hours? or are you claiming that it's a myth that Americans work so much because Mexico & Greece work longer hours? (presumably this is why those countries have such impressive economies).

I don't see how you can have it both ways. We're either dumb and exploited for working too much or we're lazier than a couple of countries that need bailouts every other year. Pick one.

Beware the new TTY code!
