also anecdotal

I had a 3GS that I got used. Last year, Rogers in Quebec had a deal with 5G of data, unlimited texting, unlimited local calling and domestic long distance for $70. I got an iPhone 5 on contract. What the hell? Anyhow, the clerk started pushing me towards Samsungs, but once he found out I already had an iPhone, stopped pushing the Nexus.

He then told me that Rogers pushes the Android phones harder because there is more profit in it for them.

Whether it's true or not, I can't say, but Tim Cook might be right in saying that people bought something that they were manipulated into. However, that's business and I am sure that there are people who are walking around with expensive Apple products that they don't need or planned to by either.

Firstly, this is Facebook. It's easier to collect, aggregate and sell data from a select list rather than allow people to enter what they want.

Secondly, this is Facebook, many people who might be in the 50 options of gay and transgender should be wary of trusting a company not to share that information beyond what the user originally sets in their privacy settings.

Finally, many people who might considered to be in the 50 options of gay and transgender and happy with the dichotomy.

The US is officially Metric, right?

I have yet to see a single road sign that says "1200m until exit" rather than "3/4m until exit). US != metric.

Drive the I-95 in Maine. I saw metric exit signs from the NH border to Portlandia.

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
