They're really getting as bad as Mozilla here.
Doubt it is a credit card, more of a debit card or cash card.
Not everyone has a credit card in the UK either, I do not.
it does suck, however, that things like this (and the dreadful new search box, the new tab bullshit, etc) are forced on people who then have to figure out how to get rid of the shit or revert to the 'old way', which often means digging into about:config or adding a new third-party extension because they take so much control out of the options UI
Too much in the UI was confusing and un-usable for the average person. From a UX point of view, it was a nightmare. From a support angle, it was terrible. People do not care about control, just the minute people like you'd find here. At least Mozilla is not like almost all open source companies where UX and UI is given no thought because developers design them as they think they should be, not how they should be. Hats off to Mozilla for doing proper usability studies, which Google copied Mozilla's conclusions to make Chrome UI.
paedophile* At least spell it correctly.
Wrist band type pedometers I find highly inaccurate. I have two waist worn pedometers and put them on for a week, at the end of each day they were between +/- 20-50 out (10,000 steps), the FitBit was + 1,000 to 2,000 different. The FitBit was counting when I raised my arm, ate from a spoon, and other stuff...
I do agree we may put our phone down when at home or in the office. However, many pedometers do not count unless it detects more than 20 steps, so at home for me they rarely count my steps.
Newer Home Hub is combined. It's actually a good all in one box with AC wifi, gigabit networking etc.
I get 3Mb, what is the problem is the last mile being made from aluminium wires.
Yes that's true. To get my Google ID card I had to register online on a kiosk, you have to authorise a G+ app access to your account, if you do not have a G+ account you have to register.
Google HR use it for recruiting. I had to recommend a friend recently for a job at google. The whole job application process is done through G+, form filling, hangout for interviews, the works. Many google employees have secondary accounts that are not public but for internal use only, once my friend got past the first interview a new person circled them, a VP of HP then recommended him for the next stage.
Mac's, especially the iMac, Mac Book Pro and Mac Pro machines have always been competitively priced. Yes you can get PCs with similar or the same spec, but not a 'ton cheaper', the iMac I scratch my head over not finding anything nearly similar for the money, take the 5k iMac, it is insanely cheap. I'm not sure of any laptops with the build quality of Apple laptops.
First amend what? This is the UK here!
Anyway, the US amendments can be amended at any time, or totally removed. The clue is in the name, "amendment".
Credit card 15-20% APR, debit card you make money though interest. How is not having a credit card is a poor financial decision?
The waiter, or anyone else for that matter, should never touch your credit/debit card. Why on earth are people giving it to them for?
What's wrong with it linking to your current/checking account? I do not intend to own a credit card, I do not need one, as the same is with most people.
I don't even have font smoothing switched on my retina MacBook Pro, just no need.
OS X has quite good font smoothing, if you want to see a bad one just try one of the many Linux desktop environments.
