Comment Re:Track stability (Score 1) 149

Very true, and achieving stability and modularity can be a real challenge. It can be done, but it is not as simple as most people first think. So they put something together and then have no end of problems with derails etc... eventually giving up. Better to design and research up front.

That's easy, because it is worth $700 to most people to be able to brag about having 20% more pixels than they can see, and the latest onto core processor, which will let them type emails on that tiny keyboard at least 8 times faster than the old school quad cores.

I mean really, just being seen with a one generation old phone is a stigma waiting to happen.

Comment My experience after several months... (Score 1) 485

I am very pleased with Windows 10. I am mainly a OS X user, since the first Mac 128. However, I have had to use Windows on occasion professionally and I play several games that require it. I do not claim that I am a good example for others, I run fairly new equipment, with lots of ram (for me, 16GB) and lots of disks (10TB total). I run multi boot, OS X 10.11, OS X 10.10, Debian, SuSE and Ubuntu, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 (couldn't stand 8) and Windows 10. I always apply all upgrades/updates I can find - I love being a beta site.

All in all, on my system with daily use, I have found Windows 10 to be stable, and easier for ME to use than Windows 8(.1). Windows 7 was the first Windows I ever endorsed, I found it to be stable and "easy" to use. I expect Windows 10 to be the second Windows I endorse after using it for another 6 months or so.

Your statement is true, there is no where near enough capacity to manufacture what is required. But, you post makes it seem like you leave it at that. Meaning, no point trying to replace the existing infrastructure, because it is a big expensive long term project...

I prefer to say that if it is profitable, corporations will make it happen. (Notice I left out caveats like safe, works as advertised, etc) And the more profitable it appears, the faster they will make it happen.

We will see where things like this go.

Comment Re:Where are the links? (Score 1) 425

Thank you for there link, I followed it and found none of the "edited" photos you claim are there. I found ONE photo that showed the iPhone from an angle that showed the camera bulge and the bulge was there...

So, flaming slashdot - what a concept - lol... I am sure all the hate posted here is legitimate and justified. I see you are proud enough of your comment to stand behind it and not post anonymously - oh wait... I will stand behind my years posting here and my reputation and not hide behind "Anonymous Coward"...

Comment Where are the links? (Score 0, Troll) 425

I realize that this is slashdot and all that shit, and it is a requirement for members here to hate Apple.

I see posts here talking about holding their iPhone 6 and it shows the bulge... interesting, where di you get YOUR iPhone 6???

I see a lot of posting that it is obvious that Apple edited the photos - but the only link is not to an Apple site, but a hater site.

I went to Apples site and looked around - there were no side views to be seen - hmm.

So, it's typical Slashdot bullshit - pile on the hate, with nothing to support the theory.

Comment Can't wait to hate... (Score 0) 208

Everyone is standing inline to get one and Slashdot is posting anything and everything it can to put it down...

As usual, can't wait to hate.

Geek care about performance, configurability, expandability, etc. Geeks make up almost 0% of the Apple market. It's as if garbage truck drivers were complaining about the latest Porsche Carrera because there was very limit load carrying capacity...
