Pretty sure weddings, even lavish ones, are not limited to Christianity.
Obtain visiting rights at hospital and for couples with widely different incomes, filing jointly is better. And then there's, of course, the lessening of the "When the hell are you guys going to get married?/Make an honest woman of her?" questions from rude relatives.
Most passengers aren't half-deaf, mostly unhelpful bitches like Siri.
I wonder how much of this is distraction and how much of this is driver rage at Siri not understanding what the driver is asking or responding, as it does in most cases, with "Sorry, I can't do that".
Love Google Now on my Android devices and laptop, especially the Google Everywhere thing where I don't even have to touch the device. With my husband's MotoX, it can even be unplugged with screen off. The utility is quite amazing. But using Google Now on iOS kinda sucks because you have to get to the app to begin with, which kind of defeats the purpose. I wish Apple would let you change the voice rec engine from Siri to Google Now. I would probably consider replacing my Android stuff with iOS devices if I could do that.
Apple really only ever competed against IBM's PC division, which was never terribly profitable to IBM anyway. They cooperated quite a bit with technology (PowerPC) and of course today with software and services.
This is even scarier if you have any familiarity with how most hospital records and/or IT departments are run.
Once you've factored in all the typical bullshit that surrounds your "$199 phone", you find that it probably is around $700 or more.
Sir Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril. Sir Lancelot: No, it's too perilous.
You'd be surprised at the number of hours you can dedicate while undergraduate. For a lot of students who have already been putting in 40+ hour weeks, the degree actually is just a formality. I know plenty of students who contributed very good work during their undergraduate years. Cared about enough that they were invited back after graduation to our company.
"Apple never releases anything until it actually works." -- Quote from an Apple fanboy Fanboys.....just a tip, never use the term "Never" or "Always" regarding your favorite toy. That goes for Android, Apple, Windows, Blackberry, whatever. These companies have people working for them. Some good, some great, some really suck at their jobs. They're all just people, not superheroes. Sometimes Apple fucks up. Sometimes Google does. Sometimes Microsoft does. It happens. Get over it. Your phone is just another finicky appliance no matter how shiny the bendable aluminum is.
I don't think it's a matter of intimidation. Quite the opposite. To some folks, "PhD in CompSci" means, "I didn't have the chops to get a programming job while getting my undergraduate degree so I just stayed in school." Yeah, harsh, but that's the feeling out there. Most really good programmers don't bother with higher degrees because they're employable from the get-go.
No, they didn't plan it optimally. They got broadsided by Android capturing 85+% of the market, a lot of that led by Samsung's charge into phablets. They knew they had a problem and they fixed it. No need for spin here. They did the right thing.
The S3 is a phablet? Who knew?
But if you're traveling, that means you're carrying an extra device and extra chargers.
