Come on you puritan sods! Grow a pair of balls.
Now if the developers made a sexual joke about that Adria woman , than I would consider this sexual harassment. But some wordplay? On Forking? And big dongles? What's next; "Oh no's, he said that we should go 'finger' the cullprit who broke into our unix account. Let's put tar and feathers on him and carry him around on a metal bar!"
I am goddamn happy I live on the ole' Continent where you can swear profanely on the workfloor when you break your skull underneath your desk while searching for that loose USB cable or make funny comebacks to loose the tension like that female developer who shouted "that's what he said" after the frantic cry of the assistant server-admin "i can't get it up!".

You are creating a generation of scared, stressed, puritan bastards. One visit to a Scottish , Flemish or Basque pub and they probably faint upon hearing the "feck this pissbeer" or "my, those are big jugs. No offense lady!"

All of Europe is sighing in relief as Obama is re-elected. Germany, France, UK, Italy , Russia, Belgium, The Netherlands,and so on will rather welcome 'socialist' Obama (again) who will support US job creations instead of Romney's foreign-friendly economic reforms at the cost of "Global Ignorance" as we call it.

I really loved my Apple ][+ , Apple //e and Apple //GS because i could program it out of the box: I remember my first steps into (integer) basic, machinelanguage (instigated by peeks and pooks articles I found) and later on 6502 Assembler. Although I was charmed by the Macs GUI i was a bit disappointed to discover that it was not so easy to start programming out of the box. Even worse, getting my hands on tools to program were hard to come by here in Belgium. I was demoted from a power user to a customer. (Luckily , later on it was much easier to get 'under the hood')
Was this also an important issue for you: an open system to expirement with IF you want it.

... because you need to switch to another when the one you are holding crashes, like the presenter demonstrates around 13:48.

Also , magnetic cover? Really? Is that a novelty? I am very curious to see if they will launch Surface in Europe (remember Zune?). I guess some people in Europe don't want QWERTY keyboards: logistics hell again?

Wow, my US bullshit detector goes haywire!

Europe doesn't struggle since they're part of the same Currency... Europe struggles (Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Greece) because some greedy bastards in Wall Street traded in the typical American dreamstock: "Get Credit even if you haven't got a dime!".
The majority of the other European countries are doing just fine (positive growth, ...) and applying pressure on member states to adept Sensible Management. (Read: letting go of socially-inspired but flawed policies, like salary-indexing and early pensioning)

Apparently you don't follow the financial markets, but we Europeans still own our countries and their respective assets...

If the US goes bankrupt (which it should b.t.w., it's enormous dept makes Greece look like a teenager short of few bucks to buy a new console game), I will personally fly over and get me a piece of your American Dream.

Also, let's not forget that Greece LIED (in capitals!, no sugarcoating here) about their fiscal health. And now they will pay the price.

3 years? Sorry buddy, the PowerPC G5 was phased out in August 2006: that makes it 5 years in my book.

And if you really want to the latest stuff, why don't you sell your Mac every 3 to 4 years like I do! This way, i have an actual Cost of Ownership (hardware only) of around 390€ per year!

Gee, Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.
