Or companies will leave the US in droves, to other countries where they can get better tax rates.
Leaving the rest of the population without any work nor a tax base to pay for such services.

It is really a fine balancing act. There is a particular amount of Tax that a company is willing to pay, but not so much that it will just pack up and move.

My old candy bar Audiovox phone which I got in 1998 didn't bend at all (except for the retractable antenna). Removable battery, took voice commands, battery life that lasted days.

However it broke because it was so thick that when I wacked my leg on a piller it took all the force and broke.

How far can someone stretch public safety?
Freedom and Safety do not mix too well.

Granted we need a proper balance, but keep in mind every time you say someone can't do that, then you are getting rid of a freedom.

However if you grant people too much freedom they will use it to hinder someone elses.

Back in the day I had made some csh (not bash) scripts.
It took the posted data parsed it and printed a formatted report on paper.
So employees could then use it to process the order and ship it out.

It was a low volume thing, and we did it in csh just because it was quick and easy to do.
The web server wasn't ran as root and the script didn't run as root.

There could also be a Bash based Menu system for a public Telnet/SSH Site which could cause issues too.

From my understanding the update is fine. The problem is in installing the update.

I expect the actual cause isn't in the code, but a setting in their method of pushing software. They probably kept the iPhone 6 values secrete, until it was released and they didn't quite setup the update to automatically handle the 6s yet.

I bet in a few days we will get a working fix.

That sounds like a most of activists groups to me.
My view is common sense. If you disagree with me you must be influenced by some sort dark forces.
It should be obvious that my view is right, so there must be some force preventing you from understanding that.
Those democrats are being paid off by George Soros and fed misinformation from GE who owns MSNBC, those Republicans must be paid off by the Koch brothers and fed misinformation from News Corp who owns FoxNews.

Like a Linux zealot would ever state that Linux systems has any flaws to begin with.

Linux is better then any OS in every way. In the ways it isn't it is because those are the features you don't need (until it gets them)

You could say the same about Mac Fanboys or Windows Cheerleaders.

The specs matter when what you are doing needs is.
The new iPhone has a bigger screen so that means more pixels to manage. So you need a better GPU.
Now the OS can make a difference as well. iPhone focuses on app experience, android on app performance. Both are good and have their trade offs.
So the iOS device may need more specs to do the same as the android. But that is expected as to get the better experience it needs to do more.

However if what you do is good enough. Don't upgrade.
