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.

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.

we have no idea if the other guy would have been better because idiots voted in another idiot for a second time even though he showed he was an idiot

We actually do know if the other guy would have been better or worse, because the other guy was a Republican.

And Republicans are horrible at economics, which would make him so much worse.

Their entire ideology is flawed, starting with the silly theory that government should be smaller.

Um, no.

Government should be bigger.

Security questions do not work for public figures. Almost none of them will hold up to people whose whole lives are pointlessly documented.

Modern social media can also be used to identify personal information of regular people.

If you look at the logs where they operate, you can see hackers asking each other "What car is this?" with posts of random hot girls cars that they collected from Facebook or wherever. They then use this to break the iCloud security questions for said hot girls and get their nudes.

Also, you don't even need social media accounts to be targeted via social media. Just having friends that posts pics with your bits of identifying info is enough.

Not sure what you're talking about?

20 years ago the internet was largely useless.

Your Email spools were publicly readable by anyone in your campus. Gopher never took off. Web sites didn't really start to get popular until about 1994, and before that you were stuck in alt.tasteless.jokes for any sort of lolz. You couldn't find anything about fashion online. It was only for academic purposes, which are unimportant.

It was only through the commercialization of the Internet through advertising that the Internet actually started to become useful.

You're welcome.

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
