Making the argument that the Earth as been geo-engineered for humans is preposterous. 2/3's of it is covered with water we can't drink! Large swaths are covered with desserts and mountain ranges. There are earthquakes and volcanoes, etc.

Basically, God was an amateur at geo-engineering.

And do you really think the answer you get from said register-operator is dependent on you spending cash instead of credit? Retailers like to complain about the cost of taking credit cards, but really their sales volume is greatly increased by them. If that weren't the case, they wouldn't take them.

You won't get any discount, it will only increase retailers profit. They are not going to charge you less for using CurrentC.

Perhaps. But note the recent trend of stores who offer a discount if you use THEIR credit card (instead of someone else's). Target and Lowe's both offer 5% discount to use their credit cards.

---> you pay with cash you ALWAYS argue about the price, merchant have to give the CC 1~3% in transaction fees -- cash is the king (actually gold is) or bitcoin

And how is that working out for you when you're arguing with some minimum-wager running the cash-register with no authority to change prices whatsoever?

You cherry-picked your quote. When TFS explicitly says "that's not allowed, presumably because Apple doesn't want iOS to serve as a drone controller", I don't think you can really accuse the GP of cherry-picking to make his point.

Oh, yes I can, your forgot to bold the all-important word apparently - which indicates the statement is speculation by the writer of TFS. Apple says you can't have an app that uses GPS to automatically control a real-world aircraft or automobile. I think that GPS and automatically control are the operative words - for liability reasons. The parrot is manually controlled, hence is not a counter-example as professed by the OP.

None of this would be an issue if Apple would allow for alternative stores. Even these could be filtered to some point.

Apple can run their store however they want, but having to jailbreak my phone to install a competitor to iTunes seems like anti competitive behavior.

It's not an issue. Go buy an Android phone or Windows phone.

Repeated Submission of Similar Apps Submitting several apps that are essentially the same ties up the App Review process and risks the rejection of your apps. Improve your review experience â" and the experience of your future users â" by thoughtfully combining your apps into one.

This would explain why there's 500 flashlight/text-scrolling/mirror apps.

Reading comprehension fail. The rejection reason is a single developer submitting multiple apps that are essentially the same.
