Comment: Has the defect actually been fixed? (Score 1) 99

Has Apple actually fixed the defect? Or are they just going to replace people's logic boards with logic boards that still have the design flaw and will fail within a few weeks/months? That's what Apple has been doing already for people with Apple Care or people who were willing to pay to have the problem fixed - they just replaced the logic board with a refurbed logic board, and the refurb would inevitably fail with the same problem. A lot of people went back to Apple 3 or 4 times to get the logic board replaced because the replacement boards all suffer from the same problem.

You have a point, but it was either Stuxnet or a nuclear strike by Israel. Given those two options, I think we're all better off with Stuxnet.

Iran is close enough to Israel that they couldn't be sure the radiation from a nuclear strike wouldn't spread back to Israel.

A catastrophic health problem can change your plans overnight, at any age. Throw in that the older you get, the more likely it is to happen ... and employers can do the math too.

Not sure what the point of this response is. A catastrophic health problem can happen to anyone, whether they are a coder, in management, etc.

Take your work seriously but never take yourself seriously; and do not take what happens either to yourself or your work seriously. -- Booth Tarkington
