It seems to me to be a rather empty existence if you define your worth by nothing but what you make [...] if your definition of self is only in what you make, then what does that really say? What is the point?
You get a measure of immortality. (If you're good enough at whatever it is you do, and enough people know about it or buy it.)
If that is the case, put WIFI on it, and let Rats have a communal memory bank too.
So long, concept of personal identity. I always figured robots would be the ones to have a shared identity. It never occurred to me humans might too.
Holy hell. I thought I was the only one who thought of my weekends that way. On Saturdays, I'm like, "Why was I looking forward to this so much? I'm just sitting around, wasting time." And then
I think I'd enjoy my weekends more if every Friday I was deluded into thinking I had a 3-day weekend ahead of me, and I didn't find out I had to go into work on Monday until Monday morning, when my alarm goes off. I might enjoy a Sunday, for once.
The GP brings up a legitimate concern. Preview needs to fix this. Your alternatives are kinda clunky and impractical. I don't mean to get snotty, but who modded this up?
I use a popular freeware image viewer called Xee. Does exactly what I need it to.
No EMP resistance, less space then a nomad, lame
I wish I could mod this +infinity. Funniest thing I've seen on here in a long time. Well done, sir/ma'am.
They have decided to not appeal to fringe geeks and nerds but to instead appeal to the affluent mass market in order to meet their moral responsibility. That moral mass market would prefer if "porn" was not readily available on their consumer electronic devices.
I hate to hit you with this, but the overwhelming majority of the population, both male and female, consume porn to one degree or another, and it is the "moral" minority who consume it more voraciously than normal, healthy people who don't hold fucked up bronze age beliefs that sex is bad. (Amusingly, online porn purchases slightly decrease on Sundays.) The market Apple is appealing to isn't moral, it's just hypocritical, not unlike the stridently anti-gay politicians who frequently turn out to be gay themselves.
The majority may claim to be above porn, but this is the same majority who also claim to be above masturbation, contrary to every reputable study ever conducted, which finds that non-masturbators are a tiny minority, especially among men.
_YOU_ may not like that but Apple's shareholders, to whom Apple answers, likes it quite a bit.
Sounds like you like it. I rather expect that most of Apple's shareholders will like anything that increases their profits. If that happens to be Steve Jobs' messiah complex, so be it. If, on the other hand, they thought there was a good way to monetize the iPhone's use to tap into the multi-billion-dollar porn market without hurting existing iPhone sales, then it would be Apple's moral responsibility -- your words, not mine -- to devote considerable resources to making sure that fisting videos were available with the tap of a finger, now wouldn't it?
But that's how morality goes, isn't it? Any time you hear someone talking loudly about it, you can bet you're dealing with a hypocrite.
