Comment I'm 6'5" (Score 1) 819

I either have to get the exit row or pay extra for better leg room. I physically cannot sit in most airlines seats. I don't mind it since I don't fly often. I wish they offered wide people some options as I am pretty narrow and don't like it much when people intrude on my seat area. But airlines really could care less whether anyone fits in the seats or not as long as they pay. I predict the seat pitch will get smaller and smaller until until double legs amputees can sit.

Comment Amazing... (Score 2) 336 some speculation posted on the internet has to be true. So far there is zero evidence it has anything to do with iCloud or even Apple, just speculation. The brute password hack was real but there is no evidentiary connection so far. Unless 100% of the celebrities were using iPhones and iCloud to store their photos it's just as likely there was some other kind of hack such as some place they all were at (people pointed to the Emmys as one possibility). But the internet is all about pumping up the noise. It might be iCloud, or it might not be, we don't have any proof yet. It could be someone at the NSA had too much booze one day.

Statistics means never having to say you're certain.
