....Only apple could repackage a stale turd, sell it as a "better life experience,"
I wouldn't argue your point, but he didn't merely promise "a better life experience", rather:
"They had bought an Android phone by mistake, and then had sought a better experience and a better life."
Small difference, but Tim looks to be promising a flat-out better life. Amazing. All from a little phone. Oh, thank-you Tim! Your are THE BEST!"
I conflate nothing you twit. Try this:
"As with all forms of complementary and alternative medicine, the practice of osteopathy does not always adhere to evidence-based medicine (EBM). There are few high-quality research studies demonstrating that osteopathy is effective in treating any medical condition other than lower back pain."
Of course, that quote is from...Wikipedia
A bug? a mistake? A design?"
Risked everything. Gained nothing.
Bunny: "Bless me father, for it has been 3 years since my last confession. I confess that I have not been attending Mass regularly and have had impure thoughts about proprietary technologies!"
Father O'Reilly: "Why that is fairly serious. I suggest you say a Hail Mary twice a day for two months."
Bunny: "OK, Father."
Father O'Reilly: "Oh, and can you make a Novena?"
Bunny: "Why sure, Father! Give me the schematic and I can make anything!"
And Fluke is out for support, too. Those people who get free Fluke meters from Sparcfun aren't going to call Sparcfun when they need help with the meter. They're going to call Fluke because Fluke's name is on them.
People call Fluke for support on a frickin' DMM???
The main problem with this is that with going out in grand style, you don't just disappear over the ocean....
I am starting to think of what has happened as "diabolical", with someone creating a sick mystery worth of Moriarty.
Sick people get their kicks in different ways. This really could be "grand style".

First, I'll stipulate that Snowden is a hero to me. Half my age. Twenty times the guts.
What really bothers me, though, is how the Administration bungled this. Amateur hour! The moment we arrogantly, petulantly forced Evo Morales airplane down in Austria, we pretty much guaranteed that Snowden would need to hole up and that Putin would take the opportunity to stick us in the eye. This is beyond amazing. We've put ourselves in the position where a vicious thug gets to posture as the nice guy and leave us with very little to do. We are depending on a thug to protect the fate and future of a man who initiated one of the most important discussions in our nation's political history. All because we couldn't think straight and realize that Ecuador or Venezuela or *anywhere" would be a batter outcome than what we got.
It's one thing to get poked in the eye with a stick, but quite another thing to run into the stick full tilt. Amateur hour.
