Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, also highlighted iCloud Drive. Although a little late to the party, Apple hopes to compete with the likes of Dropbox and Google Drive."

No, it does not count. Itanium's target market changed and they did not switch to AMD. If you want to use the "kicked the ass of" phrasing, Itanium got its ass kicked by Xeon\ because that is what the high-end servers, like the ones SGi produces now, are using that require strong number crunching if they are still using chips in the Intel/AMD ecosystem.

I had an Apple LaserWriter Select 360 (built around a Canon engine, IIRC) that I bought new in 1994 last me until mid 2011. HP was putting out some damned good printers back then, too, before Carly Fiorina came in and turned HP into peddlers of second-rate shit.

Honorable mention to the TV in my basement, an RCA F35751MB-- the biggest CRT TV I could find in 1994. I don't yet own a flatscreen, because I'm just letting them get better and cheaper until the RCA finally gives up the ghost.

This isn't a "political blacklist". He's not being "blacklisted" first and foremost. He is being asked to resign.

Second, it's not an issue of politics. It's an issue of humanity. But unfortunately some people having equality has become a political issue and it really shows just how sick the US really is.

Brendan Eich is NOT being asked to step down because of "personal beliefs" so let's drop that BS right now. He crossed the line by donating money to actively strip away rights of individuals which is a whole different ball game. But it comes down to this even though most people won't admit it... It's still socially acceptable to be homophobic. If he had given money to the KKK or something this would not be an issue. But because it is still ok to bash gays and make/keep them second class citizens it's still a "debate"

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
