"In 2013, 4,735 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours."
It's never Apple's problem. It's always "you're doing it wrong".
Bullshit. The single time I had a hardware issue with an iPhone (stuck sleep/wake button), I took it to the store, showed them the issue, had my SIM transferred to a new unit and was walking out the door 15 minutes later.
Call it whatever you want. Apprentice/Master --- but there needs to be a way to differentiate - and thereby focus the work efforts. Master developers/designers need to be building a cohesive set of tools and a design that the Apprentice uses to get the job done.
An apprentice programmer should never be allowed to lead the design or implementation of a project - I don't care how many years they have with the company. Years of service does not equal quality of skill set. I've seen too many projects destroyed because the wrong people were in key positions in the team - and should not have been. The idea that every programmer is an interchangeable widget is a lie. If you are peddling that 'happy joy and rainbow land' view of the world - then you are part of the problem that I am talking about.
The truth is in the deliverables. Most of those deliverables are nowhere close to being right.
Yeah, I know; the EU mandated universal charging standards and this is what we get. You would think as large as Apple is, they could have thrown the industry a bone and opened up the Lightning port as an open/free standard. But nooOOooooo.
This fall, my next laptop might very well be Windows. The fact the MBP lineup has been flat these past generations, combined with some really fucking stupid decisions (USB-C), and now this fiasco with the iPhone 7... yeah, Apple, your innovation has been sucking balls lately.
I refuse to support the N. Korean regime at any level. Any growth in their GDP will be redirected to their military. Purchasing the Manbang it tantamount to putting a down payment on a noose; one thread at a time.
They had their chance, and blew it. Not USB-C is the defecto standard mandated be the EU for universal charging. Why else do you think the MacBooks are going this route? Lowest common denominator. And yes, Lightning is a superior connector.
You know, I never have problems running 1080 or 4k content in a browser (Netflix or Youtube) with my Intel i7-3770 with / GeForce G2X 275 desktop. However, CPU usage goes up and frames start dropping the moment I rent an HD movie from iTunes. Why, for the love of all that's holy, is iTunes still the biggest pile-o-shit on a PC??!!
Libertarians, who tend to be rather useful idiots.
The Koch brothers have shown time and again that they're more about power and control
What a load of crap. They're libertarians. Power and control is your fetish, not theirs.
The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to work.
