That is actually the way it originally worked. It was changed by the 17th amendment. Senators were selected by whatever means each state wanted to use. Typically, they were appointed. There are a number of people who think the change has had a negative effect in that the Senate no longer functions as an effective moderating influence.
Data roaming is off by default. You have to explicitly enable it.
A small minority of the market thats still an order of magnitude bigger than that of desktop Linux. Your argument makes no sense. While no guarantee of success, being able to hand a "normal" a laptop with your OS loaded and not have their head explode is an important first step. Windows and OS X do a reasonable job of this. Far from perfect but the experience is not too bad for most people. Linux, regardless of distribution, is not there yet. It can be frustrating for highly technical users...much less normals.
Apples gross margin for Q3 2014 was 39.4%. thats a bit better than 20%
You should really read "1919 Versailles: The End of the War to End All Wars". It's an incredibly well researched history of what went on at the end of WWI. One of the key takeaways is that that Wilson wanted to avoid being punitive with Germany. He very much wanted to create a situation that would be the opposite of the conditions that lead to WWII. However, he was outmaneuvered and somewhat incompetent. The real villains were Clemenceau and Lloyd George.
Apple has a server that caches updates. It's part of OS X server. It's very likely they have this deployed since the same server also provides device management.
Exchange has some good points but scalability is not one of them. If scalability was the deciding factor Groupwise and Notes would still be dominant. Both of them scale better in terms of hardware and staff. Scalability is not why people bought Exchange.
BS! I can't speak for all the others but code signing is not a significant barrier to anyone who wants to do iOS programming. You can run your own apps on your own devices easily and $99 is all that's required to get a cert to distribute your app. Thats not a more serious barrier than any other field of endeavor. Right....no one has ever had to buy tools, musical instruments, or sports equipment.
If it is really an issue, Apple offers an update caching server. it's part of OS X server. I have it at home not because of any limits but because it makes updates much faster. Does movies and apps too.
It's not "Slingbox style",it IS Slingbox. Dish owns sling and has built it into their DVRs.
Federal Records Act, 44 U.S.C et seq.
email meets the statutory definition of a record. Failure to keep them is a violation of the law.
Here is an example. An aerospace customer of mine wants to use their CAD and engineering apps from terminals on the shop floor. They do not want to put a high dollar workstation in that environment but they do want the full graphics. The current methods for doing this don't really work acceptably with todays video resolutions, much less with retina/4K resolutions.
How about remote access for contract developers over VDI? IDEs work better with more screen real estate today. How do you think they are going to work once 4K screens become commonplace.
Once upon a time, anything more than 16 colors and VGA was "eye candy".
Not sure where you are getting your numbers but representatives of the IRS said you are wrong in testimony before committee:
Equal focus? Over 190 conservative groups were being stonewalled. By the most favorable reports, 7 liberal groups were somehow involved. How is that equal?
Keep repeating the talking points...and missing the point entirely. 190 > 7. Outright denial is better that perpetual bureaucracy.
