Sell? Why would you buy a used one? What are you trying to do, rob St. Jobs of his rightful dues??
No no. You've got it backwards. The solution is to always buy the latest Apple product and get rid of your old ones.
Everyone had to have it because Yahoo! mail gave you 10 MB of storage....
It's pretty normal human behavior for people who work closely with a machine to give it name and personality. Our rovers have twitter accounts. Bomb squads have taken their robot on fishing trips.

I still remember ordering things by mail! Then you have to factor in the time to mail in your order and for them to process your hand-written order! And you'd better double-check that you calculated the total and taxes correctly too!
Seriously. Thanks to instant gratification and the internet, it appears that all of us have dropped about 50 IQ points and decided that weather and logistics are not real things and there is no reason why clicking on a few things on our computer shouldn't cause packages to materialize on our doorstep.
The Wise also know when to not take the literal meaning of phrases and then give a pedantic response.
Population increase isn't exactly a planned thing. Humanity would also be better off if we all stopped getting STDs, but the only thing we can do is to react to it. Unless you also have some grand plan that will convince everyone to regulate how many kids we make.
That's a bit like saying there's no shortage of money; it's a distribution problem.
It's not like all you have to do is pay for distribution and people will magically get fed. People aren't giving away food and that's not even addressing the massive political barriers to food aid.
The technology might be fine if used correctly, but big Ag companies have demonstrated that they are as morally irresponsible as big financial organizations. Yes, if Goldman Sachs was running my food, I'd like that to be regulated as well. If Monsanto and BASF tell me mutagenisis is as safe as GMO's, then I would like some third-party oversight for mutagenisis.
This is as oppsed to the physical +1 Insightful atomicxblue would be sending you in the mail on a normal day.
Thanks for the super in-depth reply. As always, your responses are always really interesting. How did you get the idea to start this Q&A thing anyway?
I never knew how country-specific a lot of these disorders were. I think I follow how depression and BPD could arise and how Stockholm syndrome could help. I don't really understand how schizophrenia could be linked to more analytical minds, but I guess our brains and bodies ARE a bunch of spagetti code, so I'll have to look into that.
I also see how obesity and other unhealthy eating habits can be a result of our easy access to food and lack of exercise, although that doesn't cover all of over-eating. I've been told that our brains react similarly when we are given food to when we are given love, and I guess that fits in well with a theory of how food helps us with bonding with friendly people.
However, (follow-up question!) even if anorexia and/or bulimia nervosa are effects of modern culture, aren't the cultural pressures that cause people to turn toward starving themselves the same as the ones that caused people to crush their organs with corsets? Wouldn't the urge to conform to what is considered attractive at any period in time be overwhelming enough that someone might be compelled to take it to unhealthy (and possibly detrimental to finding a mate or raising a child) levels?
Yes, that is what governments do in general. The PRC doesn't just coerces the Chinese. Taiwan used to be in the UN until the PRC said "it's us or them."
Meanwhile, Taiwan and Chinese companies happily do business in the high-tech manufacturing industry.
Okay, then you don't cite people for what "could be."
