Perhaps when you have computers that can handle errors more gracefully than "PC LOAD LETTER" I might think about taking him seriously. But we've barely moved past that level at present.

No way! We're way beyond that! We now have advanced error handling. The error message is super friendly AND it has a cool frowny face!

:( Your computer ran into a problem, but I won't bother giving you any reason why. Just search for "SOME_ERROR" online and hope you don't get sucked into a spammy malware site.

Yeah, the US bombed Japan, but uh... wtf on the rest of that. Providing their national defense is not an occupation and it isn't illegal. I also don't know what you're talking about with the corporation thing either. Japan can't afford to keep western CEOs because the pay is so low compared to the west (as in $300K for a large corporation). People like Carlos Chosn (Nissan) and Howard Stringer (Former Sony) are very rare. If you want to talk about foreign interests pushing the Japanese around, usually Japan is compared to a lapdog, not a string puppet, which as different connotations.

That's depressing. I make more than that in flyover country and pay $800 a month for double that. While I can envy some aspects of the Bay Area lifestyle, it's not enough to sacrifice what I have. Anyway, more power to you if you like where you are, and there's something to be said for stability.

..that morning, Cook had stood in front of employees at Apple headquarters and held up the phone, which a staffer had hand-delivered from a store in Beijing to commemorate a notable occasion: Apple had sold its billionth iPhone.

Wait, did Tim Cook jack someone's iPhone just because it was the billionth? I can only imagine a scene similar to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
