Adults should never ask for "pretty windows with 3D icons".
I have never wanted a touch-screen hybrid Mac.
Apple sells very specific appliances that are best absolute at what they do. They don't need to sell a toaster-refrigerator. You're better off buying a toaster and a refrigerator separately.
Apple could have made one of those horrible hybrid devices in the last 7 years since they introduced the iPhone. The fact that they had absolutely no desire to do so should tell you everything you need to know about what they think of those types of devices.
The failure of Windows 8 is vindication of that strategy. Apple won.
If you don't want hackers reading your email, you shouldn't use email!
Your email is on the cloud, and any hacker can access it! You only have yourself to blame if you use email!
Remember, what matters is that you feel superior to someone else.
Jobs created the modern personal computer and the modern smartphone. Both of these changed the world.
(and, no, no one else created the modern personal computer.. before Apple, computers were nerdy industrial appliances, ESPECIALLY the Xerox machines. And please don't make the nerd mistake of conflating nerd culture with society in general)
Meanwhile, Elon Musk has yet to create something innovate.
Electric cars? lol, they were around 100+ years ago.
Space-X? You mean like all the rocket companies before his, and in particular, the government funded rocket companies like his?
Solar city? Has that made any useful impact?
Really kids, Elon Musk is a common industrialist. Everything he does is completely expected and completely boring. There is absolutely nothing surprising or risky in what Musk does. It's very straightforward, boring, and clearly obvious nerd-bait - Rockets! electric cars! Solar panels! what common nerd wouldn't go apeshit for that? Nothing he does is actually surprising. He works hard and invests in safe businesses, but guys like Jobs actually changed the world.
Rockets, electric cars, and solar panels are some of the most boring ideas you can think of today. They were done dozens of years ago. Today, they're just sheer boredom, only appealing to geeks with no sense of art or creativitiy. How much of a fucking nerd do you have to be to consider rocketry or electric cars to be interesting still?
How about coming up with something fucking new and interesting instead?
So, you can never compare anything Musk does with something like the iPhone, a complete game changer for society. Just look at its introductory keynote, and you'll see about 100 different ideas that the audience were completely surprised at, like momentum scroll and pinch-to-zoom. Do you even remember smartphones before that? they were garbage.
I'm mostly amused by the fact all you narcissistic libertarian nerds just hate the fact that a guy like him outwitted you at innovation. You dorks totally thought boring crap like electric cars and rockets matter, when the things that ACTUALLY matter are 'overlapping windows', 'pinch-to-zoom', and 'momentum scroll'.
It's as if you had NO idea what innovation actually means.
Hint: innovation isn't something you expect or predict.
Did you predict electric cars? If you did, that means it's not innovative.
That's only for published scientific research in certain peer-reviewed psychological journals - not even all journals.
And you don't need informed consent for marketing purposes at all. I can decide to experiment on anyone if I wish for my own amusement - I'll just walk around with a big red poster board and write down if it causes weird stares. That's for my own personal amusement.
But the real issue is people do not have the right to their own user experience in someone else's products.
You use Facebook? Great.. Facebook gets to control your experience with them, not you. That could mean they could change their website's colors from a calming blue to an angrier red. It's their product.
Life isn't about doing what you want... it's about doing what other people tell you to do.
The world doesn't care about your individual freedom.. it only cares about what you can offer it.
We big-government socialists knew that, not sure why you libertarians didn't?
These days hipsters are all about their flip-phones.
Since when does Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu/ESPN/HBOGo allow you to store your videos locally?
Which is why less chips the better. No need to add a couple more chips in the stack always drawing some current if you don't need it.
And for phones, power reduction is the most important goal.
Additionally, who uses more than a few apps anyways? Most people just stick with their core group of apps they regularly use.
And, it's only 64 GB - 64 GB isn't 100 TB. 100TB would be a completely different use model from 16GB or 64 GB.
For example, movies are always streamed now - you don't store your Netflix movies locally. So you don't need a huge data library.
"Hey guys I'm too lazy to write code that's optimized for each platform! I know.. I'll make it crap on ALL platforms!"
You pussies need to start learning to write software for each and every platform. That's always better in the end.
No pain no gain, you pussy.
Right. Like i said, warrant's are only for permission - to read Lavabit's SSL private key - not development.
They didn't make him write new code. They just wanted the keys.
Again, you warrant don't cover development.
You can't get a warrant like that. That's like asking for a warrant to build a bridge.
Warrants are only for permission, not development.
This problem has already been faced by pro video editors. Use their tools to tag and archive videos, and be done with it.
You'll get over it.
lol @ the idea of anyone buying a Nexus.
Sorry Mr. Google Employee, Android phones have a terrible, clunky user interface, and do nothing that iPhones can't do, with the bonus that they also have a better curation of apps in the app store.
The worst part about the Google system is that anyone can write an app for them, and it doesn't go through a professional editing process.
Google doesn't know that people pay big money so editors can filter out the junk for them. Nobody wants to enable a democratic system of app developers, since most developers are untalented and should not be in the business, regardless of what they think of themselves. We pay editors to tell them that these developers suck and should not be doing what they want to do. Maybe they should get into real-estate or something else instead.
