Seriously? Personal accountability should always be first and foremost. You, as a person, should be responsible for your actions. You're suggesting that the companies should be forced to be accountable for you. You're saying it's ok for our populace to not care they don't know the first thing about what they're doing. Someone else will take care of it for them.

If you can't take the time to learn how to use your tablet, you shouldn't use the tablet. If your kids don't know how to use the tablet, they shouldn't use the tablet. It really isn't too much to ask people to actually be at least halfway responsible with their choices. Admittedly, I am technical support for an ISP... and I'm a bit jaded. But, I get to see some of the worst when it comes to people not understanding the first thing about the devices they feel they NEED to have.

People aren't willing to accept responsibility for themselves and their kids. We shouldn't be forcing the companies to accept the responsibility instead. If you don't agree with how Amazon does it, don't buy their devices or use their appstore. If they feel they're losing too many customers based on their business practices.. they'll change them. Either way, they shouldn't be targeted by the FTC.

It only sounds like they operate on a tighter budget than some larger magazines would. Also, "We do intend to survive, even if the actions of TEN: The Enthusiast Network put us massively into debt." It sounds like it's less about being able to get a line of credit, and more about them hoping they don't have to.

They've pretty much always pushed the whole detachable keyboard and ability to do real work, for the Surface Pro. That right there shows what the goal of the Surface Pro was. That isn't to say they didn't want to see the Surface RT to take off, but the Pro was pretty much always a flexible laptop replacement

One sample doesn't show anything. They even mention that in TFA. Also, it appears Intel reported it achieving 5.5ghz on air cooling during Computex for their OC challenge. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they cherry picked the cores for the challenge, but it shows they're at least capable of higher.

First, I don't know where you get off calling me racist, ignorant, or a troll. From the same wikipedia article YOU linked: "The Steelers, however, had already interviewed Ron Rivera who is a Hispanic minority to fulfill the requirement before interviewing Tomlin, and Rooney himself contends that Tomlin's hiring did not result from the Rule".

My only point of contention has been about the factual representation. Tomlin was interviewed and hired because they thought he'd be a good coach, and wasn't because of his race. He was also hired by the Steelers, where the rule originated, which implies that as a whole they are more accepting of minorities. I'm not knocking the rule, only that you're falsely propping up Tomlin as an example of it working.

The Rooney Rule had nothing directly to do with the hiring of Tomlin. They had already met the requirements of the rule and could of hired anyone. Being that the rule started with Rooney and the Steelers, it would only make sense that race is less likely to play into their choices. They chose to interview, and subsequently hire, Tomlin because they wanted to.

Optimization hinders evolution.
