I would not really agree with that. Many very very very rich people live on coast lines. Personally, I think the rich will be over-proportionately targeted by any rise in temperature. Entire well off developed nations would be entirely submerged with a 2 degree increase. With the way the wealth is divided by geography it will be them who lose all their property and the peasants up in mainland who see little change. It will be the entire city of Hong Kong or San Francisco that is underwater while the peasant farmers suddenly find themselves with beachfront property.

That is a false comparison. The new model is basically identicle. They put like 1 MB more RAM in stick an incremented number on the model and ship. A better comparison is the very first digital camera ever released. in 1990 it was the Dycam Model 1; Which was black and white, low in resolution, and cost nearly $2,000 in inflated dollars. You don't get new products for cheaper.

Well considering that apparently f***en CHINA is DDOSing them and they are only experiencing intermittent downtime that is pretty impressive to me. More of reason to switch than a warning against it.

Still, no backups, no alternative plan, your coworker is an idiot.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
