Macs that can run Yosemite date back to 2010 or so.
I think that -- now, I don't think I've ever said this publicly, but I'm going to go ahead and say it now. We shouldn't be making it harder to vote. We should be making it easier to vote. (Applause.)
And what I haven't said -- I've said that publicly before. (Laughter.) So my Justice Department is going to be vigorous in terms of trying to enforce voting rights. I gave a speech down in Selma at the 50th anniversary that was incredibly moving for me and my daughters, and the notion that this day and age we would be deliberately trying to restrict the franchise makes no sense. And at the state and local levels, that's -- you can push back against that, and make sure that we're expanding the franchise, not restricting it.
In Australia, and some other countries, there's mandatory voting. It would be transformative if everybody voted. That would counteract money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country, because the people who tend not to vote are young; they're lower income; they're skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups; and they're often the folks who are -- they're scratching and climbing to get into the middle class. And they're working hard, and there's a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls. We should want to get them into the polls. So that may end up being a better strategy in the short term.
Long term, I think it would be fun to have a constitutional amendment process about how our financial system works. (Applause.) But, realistically, given the requirements of that process that would be a long-term proposition.
So what he was really discussing was "How do we make it easier to vote?" And that if everyone voted, things would really change â" that everyone voting would "counteract money more than anything."
He did say that mandatory voting, like some countries have, might be good in the short term simply to get people to the polls -- but that a better plan, albeit one that is long-term, is meaningful reform of campaign finance.
I've been a Mac user for 20+ years now and an iPhone user since 2007. Quite frankly, the hardware and software has never been better from my own experience. Go do a Google search and you'll quickly find that every new software release Apple has put out is "the worst ever." Same goes for hardware. Every time Apple has had a keynote, there have been torrents of negative reactions about how they're losing their way and going downhill. "No wireless. Less space than a Nomad. Lame." Remember that?
- MobileMe (2008): outages for days at a time, push services not working, and a formal apology. Keep in mind, people were paying for this service.
- iPhone 4 and "antenna-gate"
- Mac OS X 10.2.8, which killed networking entirely for a lot of users and was quickly pulled (this was 10 years before iOS 8.0.1)
- The Snow Leopard bug that wiped all your user data.
- iPhone power adapter prongs breaking off (2008)
- The hockey puck mouse
Those are just a few. The point is, over all Apple's QA is improved dramatically. The problem is that the iPhone is far more popular than anything else Apple has ever made. It's not that the software has gone downhill; it's that there is far more scrutiny on it -- particularly in the media. "It just works" is truer today than it ever has been.
There is no way to tell these sort of apps apart from some scummy Skinner box which hits you up for cash after you're sufficiently hooked.
Sure there is. On top of "Offers in-app purchases" being displayed right next to the Download button, all of the available in-app purchases are listed on the app's page along with their prices. The App Store rules also require that IAP purchase descriptions must "accurately describe what each item and how the item is used within your app".

No one can force you to BE sorry, even if they force you to apologize.
If a supernova were close enough to be seen within hours of its explosion, we probably wouldn't be here.
Matt Rogers, who oversees the department's loan programs as a senior adviser to Energy Secretary Steven Chu, said Fisker was awarded the loan after a "detailed technical review" that concluded the company could eventually deliver a highly fuel-efficient hybrid car to a mass audience. Fisker said most of its DOE loan will be used to finance U.S. production of a $40,000 family sedan that has yet to be designed.
