Comment: Were pre-mixing humans really modern humans? (Score 1) 35

The summary refers to the time when neanderthals and modern humans intermixed, but can we really call what came before the mixing modern humans? It seems that something about the combination sparked huge evolutionary changes that allowed us to rather rapidly (evolutionarily speaking) develop modern society. As far as I'm concerned, the history of modern humans starts with the mixing.

The icons on this release are mostly horrible. I replaced the finder with the one from a previous version and will probably replace the bright folder icons. I like the gray sidebar icons in finder and wish they had used full size versions instead of the horrible bright blue.

"I'm not wasting any more time chasing your moving goal posts" I didn't move the goal posts. Everyone talking about inflation is trying to do that. The under $200 category of programmable computer is gone. We now have smart phones and tablets. One of the key entry points into computing is no longer available.

Yes. I bought one for my daughter (11) and one for an older person who kept getting her laptop pwn3d. Given the number of parents/grandparents that no longer have the time or ability to have a stable system and just want a browser, this is the perfect solution for them.

I don't buy that inflation argument at all since cellphones (and a lot of consumer items) still go for the $99 and $199 price points. Computers were always touted as getting cheaper every year, yet (because of the economics of Intel and Microsoft) we have lost the under $200 segment. $500 is still not an impulse buy.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
