and maybe they've been fucking with the whole Israeli population for ~30 years, but it has nothing to do with this particular girl.

So why aren't they shooting all laptops? Is it only potential terrorists who might be stupid enough to have stamps from Arabic countries in their passports and carry insulting pictures on their camera's that have their laptops destroyed?

Of course they picked on this girl. They didn't approve of where she'd been and what she was learning.

Just because you are under threat does not mean unacceptable behaviour is now acceptable.

Apple is trying to claim control over ALL uses of the (sub) term 'Pod',
Did you even read the synopsis? Let me help you out:
Apple has issued warnings to makers of other electronic devices containing the word 'pod.'
Electronic devices! Electronic devices with the name "pod" in them, quite plainly suggests a link to Apple, their good will and their standards.
MS still only gets to use Windows when talking about THEIR OS.
True, but more importantly nobody else gets to talk about windows in relation to an operating system. Which is exactly what Apple are stopping other people from doing with their trademark.Nobody gets to call an electronic device an anything-pod because its not an apple product.
You sniffing much glue these days?
It shows how really slow you are; that you can't make your arguments do the talking instead of hitting the personal insults.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
