Comment Re:That's absurd. All Macs & iPhones have blue (Score 2) 347

I would cut some slack here. The better statement would have been. IPhone comes lightning head phones only, MacBook Pro does not come with a Lightning Port, only USB-C. But, they include a 3.5MM Jack. If I bought both devices new, I would need to get some sort of external Headset and Cable to use them "together". 1. Cannot use the Headphones that come with the IPhone with the new MacBook Pro. 2. I have to have a different charger for each device. That is accurate. Bluetooth and everything else is Outside of Apple's design. Their wireless ear buds will not use the special chip and I cannot remember right now if they will connect to Bluetooth. The Top level one is correct in spirit, but bad in wording.

Sigh, There are times that it is good to see the past changed, this is not one of them. 1. The Congress and Senate were both controlled by Democrats. 2. There was a Republican Senator that was ready to vote yes on anything that came down the line, and publicly stated so. (Senator Olympia Snow). 3. This gave the Democratic Senate Filibuster Proof votes. 4. There was no problem with the House for the Democrats. In summary, President Obama said (paraphrasing), This is what I think should happen, (Did not actually propose any legislation for it) but you guys hammer it out. Then the Democratic Party came up with what we have today.

Comment Did not have access? (Score 3, Informative) 178

While normally I would look at this, it seems that I had early access from the Windows 8.1 Preview that was loaded on my RT device for 2 months before I did a refresh back to Win8RT OS. The device got constant updates to keep it within striking distance of RTM. I am thinking that it was not the lack of "Windows 8.1 RTM" for a RT device that casued the issue.

Since I cannot run Flash Content on my iPhone now. This is not about Flash Contect. This would be a better framing of the issue. I am going to write a message on a piece of paper. Message is going to be sent to someone inside of Apple INC. Since the Message is going to Apple INC, you are going to need to write the message with an Apple INC Pencil, since they make pencils.
