When asked if it’s "inconsistent" for the MacBook Pro to retain the traditional headphone jack (another widely-used connector that Apple has dropped from the iPhone) Schiller says that professionals still need that on a laptop for other types of audio gear that doesn't work wirelessly.
Did Phill miss that there was a dongle for that?
He adds that he’s been surprised by the criticism, but says the decision to only use Thunderbolt ports was a "bold risk" and Apple will "help people through these changes."
He also forgot to mention how they were going to help: By providing expensive dongles at a high margin.
whereas other glasses-less 3D displays carry cots in terms of image resolution.
So that begs the question: what kind of bedding can we expect from this glasses-less 3D display?
Clinton replied, "Let's get [a] separate address or device but I don't want any risk of the personal [e-mail] being accessible."
Though the bigger question is why would Clinton be using her employer's email system for personal emails? Here in the private sector that is explicitly forbidden in every employee handbook I've ever read.

As I recall, near the end of the movie, the antagonist senator is making fun of Mark Wahlberg's character because the senator got away with illegal activity and he says:
"The truth is what I say it is!"
"I have concern about a PlayStation that my grandchildren might use," she said, "and a predator getting on the other end, and talking to them, and it's all encrypted. I think there really is reason to have the ability, with a court order, to be able to get into that."
If you are so worried about a predator talking to your grandchildren through the Playstation network, why are they using it unsupervised?
Take care of your own problems, don't make the government do it for you.

Why are you trialing usage-based billing?
The Internet ecosystem is changing constantly and we decided back in May 2012 to replace our static 250GB usage threshold with more flexible data usage management approaches that offer more choice, flexibility and fairness for all customers. Customers can choose to use as much Internet as they want, and those who choose to use more pay more, while those who use less can pay less. The vast majority of ISPs, large and small, have some version of data usage plans in place.
You are right, when everyone is using the pipe at the same time, there will be degradation. So why not charge for internet access like electricity? Make it cheaper during non-peak hours and convert to fully usage-based billing. No flat fee for access, or at most a very small one.
To answer my own question here with part of your comment: it would be really confusing to customers.
