The OSX animations are awful, people have been using windowing systems for decades and completely grok what happened to the window. At most you need to a tiny fraction of a second to avoid the user overlooking the change. Please do not waste precious seconds or cause people motion sickness for your whizbang effects.

Grok? Really? It might be a word now in the dictionary but so are words like GINORMOUS and d'oh. Try using words which are in standard usage by normal people.

The iMac Retina... no. Besides not wanting to spend that much now, I'd hold off on a first generation rig like that.

Rig? Are you in the wrong forum? We are not talking about trucks here. Oh, wait, you want to try to make your gaming/facekbooking/drawing computer sound tough and industrial? Is that like how slashdotter like to call their tech jobs their "trade"? Sorry but the software industry is not a "trade". We are not blue collar but rather white collar and we do not earn a "wage" but rather a salary.

Small "l" liberals are not willing to standup for values such as democracy, freedom of speech, freedom from being killed for being the wrong gender or religion when the perpetrators are muslim and start accusing those who do speak out as "racist" when Islam is a religion and not a race.

Now, now, no need to get snippy. I didn't say the muslims were right, only that the crusades should be considered a war. The war you speak of was back many centuries prior when the Rashidun Caliphate wrested control of the area from the Byzantine Empire. Ancient history and very bloody but I"m having a problem with the "100's of millions" thing. Very strong exageration that is.

Why don't you go back in time and tell that to the christians and Jews in Africa, Asia Minor and the Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhi in countries east of Iran who were killed by the Muslim Crusaders.

Well that's like saying the Crusades weren't wars.

Right and the slaughter of 100's of millions by the Muslims for centuries preceding the Christian crusades were not crusades? Maybe they weren't, after all the crusades were about taking territory back whereas what the muslims did were about converting others to islam or killing them if they refused. The Caliphate was the ISIL of that day.

They have to do with the fact they are laughing at all the I-sheep .

Enjoy throwing away your android phone once a new one comes out with an incremental improvement because you are not going to have anyone wanting to buy your used Android. iPhones, however, retain a great deal of resale value.

The CRTC is in the pockets of companies that don't like netflix, aka cable companies.

Fire the CRTC from the top to the bottom. If they are having their salaries paid for by taxpayers but are not looking out for their interests then let them go work directly for the cable companies instead.

why does anyone other than netflix need to know who their customers are?

Why does a government regulatory body need to know who your customers are? Are you kidding?

No, we are not kidding. Tell us why bureaucrats, who are paid for by tax payer dollars need to know anything. I want to know who is being bribed and by who so I can both demand that the official be fired immediately and so that we can demand that the bribers can be brought up on bribery charges.

Not all root servers are in the US. Not all root servers are controlled by US companies/government agencies. And there is nothing preventing a cut of potion of the Internet/group of ISPs to route any or all of the these IPs to their own DNS servers.

The still control the majority of the routing. They can cripple the internet any time they want and they can get their loyal partners in europe to follow suit.

They control all of the root traffic across the internet so they could not only shut down the entire internet but close off the US portion of the internet anytime they wanted. In fact, I believe there was a similar story about Obama wanting to be sure that he could "shutdown" the internet in an emergency.
