Year of Linus Torvalds on the desktop???
I'm sure the GOVERNMENT would (don't worry you can trust us)
I'm not disagreeing with you. These are valid points. And you should have the right to hire the best person for the position.
But this is life.

Also, if you have the Purple Dildo shaped connector and try to pass through airport security screening, you may have an interesting afternoon...
Narrator: Was it ticking?
Airport Security Officer: Actually, throwers don't worry about ticking 'cause modern bombs don't tick.
Narrator: Sorry, throwers?
Airport Security Officer: Baggage handlers. But when a suitcase vibrates, then the throwers gotta call the police.
Narrator: My suitcase was vibrating?
Airport Security Officer: Nine times out of ten it's an electric razor. But every once in a while [looks around, leans in conspiratorially] it's a dildo. [leans back] Of course, it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo. We have to use the indefinite article, "a dildo", never *your* dildo.
Narrator: I don't own a dildo!
you left off the best one, the magsafe plug that gets sucked into the port when you just dangle the power cable near it
also, you'll catch flag for bringing up Thunderbolt
If I were a stock holder, I'd be upset. I wouldn't want him be "diverse" so he can look good; I'd want him to hire the best qualified people in a completely "blind" way. If that means 90% are male, or 80% white, or 85% female, or whatever the numbers work out to be because those were the best people to get the job done, then so be it.
until you catch negative PR blitz that feminists picket and blacks boycott, which the media loves to pick up because You're Apple
Not that, the part where it wasn't encrypted.
I don't see what the issue is with using a phone number and IMEI.
Why is this a big deal?
Why is it considered okay to do this until you get caught? Then you apologize? How about not stealing the information in the first place for starters. Fuckwads!
media spinning this. It wasn't an apology, it was an explanation of what's being used. I think it was just lazy programming honestly, read the blog post yourself. Seems reasonable.
the cost is the same. why would you buy 40 year old aircraft (f-16) for the same price as 20 year old aircraft (F-22/35)?
(yes, 20 years old. go look when they started development)
Same reasoning exists in the people complaining about the F-35 and F-22 cost-- it's approximately the same price as a new F-16/18 in actual current cost of production; but people lump the cost of the development into the cost of the sale to make it look like it's $350m not $110m / per or whatever the actual number is.
at the rate we're going we'll need completely redistricted wireless spectrum and we'll need to upgrade the EM spectrum itself to be able to handle more bandwidth within a given bandwidth
I can't wait to be done with Verizon.
well, it's a good thing you have so many choices of other corporations running nationwide cellular networks that want you dumping your cable internet connection in favor of wireless spectrum coverage.
why would it cost them anything at all? The tower is already running, the backhaul is already laid, the proxies are already up, the air is just sitting there asking for 700mhz LTE to be passed through it.
Only way it costs them is if there's someone else they can give that bandwidth to who will give them more money than you.
You know I'd love to do that, but Google wants me to buy some Cloud storage that's only there if I'm connected to the internet, only there if I have data left this cycle, and only 5s of latency to open the file if I have a solid LTE signal in a non-downtown area. Otherwise (and believe me, there's a lot of otherwise), forget it.
So they don't put microSD slots in their phones anymore. Dummies.
Thankfully I just stopped fighting on this matter. I have one station that I like to stream if I want some background music, it's 100kbit/s streaming ogg (sounds great honestly and I'm pretty picky), and I just have gotten in the habit of deleting songs I don't want to listen to again and keep my phone simply as a "fun-music" device storing about 3GB of individual songs I actually want to hear again, which I use for playing in my car via bluetooth that auto-connects when I get in and auto-plays on auto-connect. Can't beat the convenience.
