Crap coders rejoice! Your strawman application that some how made it into production for years can now be optimized w/o you having to understand what you were thinking at the time! Seriously, the days of going through and optimizing your code for speed are gone, along with the 8086 with a turbo button.

Close... Grown people choose religion and usually after much "soul searching". We indoctrinate our children into religions which we rarely fully agree with ourselves in a hope that they will understand the religion. We do this because we believe we're going "what is right" and helping the child to a more pure life. However we probably do more harm than good in that they grow up believing "well if my parents believe this shit, that I need to as well." If only we could be honest with our children instead of playing the parent's role all of the time.

The US (327,577,529) is such a small market compared to China (1,206,553,000) and India (867,800,000). Unless Apple has such a markup to US customers in comparison to the rest of the world (where it sells), it would make little sense to block competition from the US market.
