Wait, so we are hating on Apple for giving us more options now?

This is going to seem like magic. But imagine this. If you stop posting in and browsing Apple-related stories, then you will start seeing less and less of them over time.
But, alas, then the world would not know how cool you are.
It's fun to make this just bout a cake. But what happens when all on staff nurses/doctors in an ER refuse to help 'the gay' or the local utility company - aka someone with a monopoly - decides that they won't deal with 'them' at all?
What about state/municipal services. It's not too far fetched to think that all the clerks in the whatever-departments-hands-out-business-licenses would refuse a gay person services so that they could start their own gay-friendly bakery.
ISP's should make this an explicit surcharge on people's bill. Something like "fee to store your personal browsing info for eternity, for more info contact your government representative". It's probably the only way to get the general public to pay attention to this
Could this be a way to 'save' newspapers?
Find a journalist you like and set up a system that you pay them a buck a month? If they are nice they could offer you access to their stories ad-free as a bonus.
Or just use the existing subscription model, just change it from "subscribing" to "financing" and you are employing your favorite organization or reporter.
Agreed. I love the wired version with keypad. Low and flat so it can be comfortably used with wrists on the table and very solid. Doesn't keep the entire house up at night either.
What toy OS would carry out shut-down command without confirmation?
They install FF or Chrome and troll
Please let me know what hardware maker I should support with my money that pays their 'fair share' of corporate taxes.
(Yes, I am serious)
Except the fun bit is, you're going to have a hard time getting anything covered by warranty unless you use the vendor-provided cable with your phone.
In the same boat with my N4. Glad to hear not being able to use the phone part of a smartphone is considered a 'small defect'.
That's why I always boot straight into DOS and if I'm feeling 'modern' then I fire up the new fancy GUI Windows stuff.
Ah, this again. Please let me know which technology company I should support because they are paying their full share of taxes.
Everyone knows digital only started with the iPhone and Facebook.
(This isn't some dig at Apple and marketing, just people's dumbness/shortsightedness in general)
I'm confused. Isn't Google Pay/Wave a default part of android? Shouldn't the headline simply be '3 wireless carriers don't uninstall an app anymore'?
Being in Canada, I can't say for sure, because Google doesn't want to use it's NFC payment system in a country that is pretty much 90% NFC-able.
