EA did the exact same mess with Battlefield 4 and simply told customers " STFU you were stupid to buy an EA title!"
I guarantee the GT executives all got dirty filthy rich off of the failure.
And there you go.
The owner of the company is just a whiny baby that is angry he was stupid but does not want to take responsibility for his poor leadership and even worse business abilities.
They could not deliver it, they made promises to apple they had no right making. They had NEVER MADE sapphire before. and then hoped that apple would set them up for the process.
Read the article and get the facts instead of just spewing incorrect information.
Perhaps they know that their customers are mostly fans who will always buy whatever overpriced gadget they throw at them
Or it could be Apple Haters do not and never will understand the reasons why people buy iPhones, and keep buying them after the first one.
It's also always been a puzzle to be how Apple Haters claim Apple has over-priced phones when the are the same price in and out of contract as other supposedly high-end phones.
I wonder, though, how much it has cost Apple in sales and good will to be putting out a product without the top-of-the-line screen.
It dies; like every other top of the line smart phone the iPhone 6/+ uses Gorilla Glass.
In theory Sapphire about have been the new top of the line, but since nothing else uses anything better than what it ships with now why would Apple be losing sales over it?
Note that the Gorilla Glass guys claim Sapphire might have better scratch resistance, but is not as good in terms of shattering - and Gorilla Glass 4 supposedly does as well in terms of resisting scratches while having even better shatter resistance. So it could be Apple dodged a bullet by not having screens that shattered more easily.
White steel roofs last 20 years without problems. Dont use this junk paint, get a standard white powdercoated steel roof and call it done. Plus you end up with a roof that will last over 2 decades and eliminate leaks, Ice buildup, etc....
and you nailed it. This "paint" is raging BS. simple latex white paint is exactly as effective as this paint is. so buy a $6.95 gallon of bright white latex and ignore this snake oil.
Unwanted to take advantage of this,
Now *that's* a freudian slip typo if I ever saw one!
Yes I do, when he is making money off of my work, I get paid. Let me guess you are one of those complete scumbags that expect friends are your slaves?
Short lived for lead acid? last time I had a solar setup my lead acid batteries lasted 10 years.
And this was 15 years ago, today the newer lead acid tech is even better.
Grid intertie systems are available that failover to local battery storage.
Then the answer is having a couple of military in full battle dress holding guns to the heads of the CEO.
Yes I said heads. One gun pressed into the forehead, the other a shotgun jammed into his junk. The marines must YELL at full volume all the time at him.
Why is the power grid so crummy?
Simple. Pure unadulterated greed. The power company does not want to spend the money making it not crappy.
I still have SDLT tapes that are still readable after 15 years. Hell I have Bernoulli disks that are still readable. The one working like new drive was packed with it along with an assortment of SCSI cables and a current working SCSI to USB adapter and a linux driver on a CD. hopefully if anyone needs to read that data in the future they will figure it out.
I actually did the same thing 3 years ago for a friend. he arrived with a stack of 9 track tapes and a desktop tape drive. Luckily I was able to find an older PC with an ISA slot and installed the card linux had drivers for it and even had the tools to convert the data to standard ASCII. Read all 20 tapes and handed him a DVD disk with the contents of all the tapes. Made a cool $2000 for sitting and watching tape spin. it was cool.
