So despite NeXT being a Jobs led company and working on NeXTStep since 1989 and Jobs pushing Apple into adopting that architecture for the next Mac OS, it's a "cheap way out"?
Except they were, they increased Apple's profitability, increased market share and brought in revenue that allowed Apple to develop iPod, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPhone, and iTunes Music Store.
Jobs didn't "shit can his own operating system", Jobs switched from the System 7-OS 8 operating system to Jobs own NeXTStep/Mach kernel approach
I manage 44 devices in building that use iOS7, this week I've had 108 wifi connection issues on those 44 devices and it's only Tuesday.
The 121 devices running Mac OS, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux that I manage have had 0 wifi connection issues.
Except for all the success they had with iMac, Powerbook G4, iBook before iPod
Sometimes there are services that don't have another option for online payment *other* than PayPal. It kind of sucks, but there it is. Just make sure you never keep any money in the account.

Can I run Office on a Nook HD+?
I got a 13", 1.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256 GB hard disk.
Very impressed with the battery life.
Doing browser and light word processing in Mac Office and Google Docs, I've gone 13 hours and 11 minutes between full charge and needing to recharge or else.
The US military M67 grenade weighs 400 grams.

And you still can't mount a Griffin (AGM-176) on a light surveillance drone.
The vast majority of drones owned by the Feds, law enforcement and military are sub-20 pound things like what Seattle PD tried.
Seattle PD used 3.5-pound Draganflyer X6 six-rotor helicopters
Those only fit on Predator (MQ-1) and Reapers (MQ-9), they can't put missiles on light surveillance drones
