A fancier word for shit.
It seems like you didn't read the article carefully. The PS3 70 million number were from November 2012, with an IDC estimate of 77 million sold in January 2013.
So the odds are that the PS3 did have higher shipping numbers than the Xbox 360 by March 31th, when Xbox 360 reached 77 million.
Let me tell you a story. A bunch of Swedish guys stay in a hotel in the US. Their manager speaks Spanish and chats to the staff. The staff complain the Swedes don't tip. So the manager talks to them and explains they should all put a dollar bill on the table each day. Some of them leave change and the cleaners tell the manager this is unacceptable. Eventually all but one of them do the crisp $1 per day thing. The one that doesn't claims that tipping is feudal and turns the cleaners into supplicants, the hotel should pay the staff a decent wage like in Sweden, the US should have a social democratic party like in Sweden to stick up for the workers and so on and so on and refuses to do it.
When he checks out he finds out the cleaners have put on the porn channel every day after he left the room and turned it off just before he got back.
I think we can all learn a lesson from that story, can't we?
I would say that the lesson is that hotel cleaners in the US are criminals. And that the tipping system in the US sucks.
If the cleaners (or others in the service industry) feel they are entitled to the tip, it is not really a tip any more, it is just a hidden direct taxation for services.
It is interesting and a bit sad that 1.5 MB/s (during off-peak hours no less) seems to be something to brag about in the US.
I also have internet through cable and I consistently reach bandwidth of 12.5 MB/s round the clock (100 Mbit/s plan). I also have no caps whatsoever and could get a plan with 200 Mbit/s, but I don't think it warrants the price difference for me at the moment.
But then I actually live in a country that actually cares about its people and not just the profits of the corporations.
The fusion bombs are not really fusion bombs at all. They use fusion, yes, but the majority of the explosive power still comes from fission. The fusion part is only there to increase the amount of neutrons available to increase the efficiency of the fission.
Move to Sweden then. Here your records have to be archived for at least your lifetime, recommendation is life+5 years.
Just to nitpick a bit, Canada does not have a significant population above the arctic circle since almost all Canadians live very close to the US border, which is far away from the arctic circle.
I doubt that even Alaska has a lot of people above the arctic circle.
Not that Finland does either, so probably not relevant in the whole picture, but still.
Don't forget to get a spare Water Chip
For a real warranty over 1 year you still need to purchase an AppleCare plan. That gets you full and direct Apple support, and more importantly there is no burden of proof on the buyer to prove that the product was defective at the time of sale.
The burden of proof is on the seller for the first 6 months,
The depends on your country. In Sweden we have the first year where the seller needs to prove that the defect was not there at time of sale, and then the burden of proof shift to the buyer for year 2.
I practice this usually means in Sweden that for stuff that costs less than 1500SEK (about $200) they just send you a replacement if you say it was broken in the first year since it would cost more to test it than send you a new one.
I didn't know cloning was legal?

Just to nitpick a bit, Erlang was developed by Ericsson, not Sony.
Perhaps they can check the fibers and see if they are too worn?
Perhaps they can separate the fibers in the manufacturing process depending on how worn they are?
There are probably any number of ways they can check this without knowing exactly how many time any given piece of paper or cardboard have been recycled..
To be fair, "The World" in The World Series doesn't mean what you probably think it means. As I understand it it refers to a newspaper that sponsored the first World Series which was named "The World".
