If I drove like a moronic asshat, and nearly killed some innocent person, only to be saved by a computer, I might not admit it so publically. Especially when the police and the DMV read the internet.

So a pedestrian in dark clothes, at night, not hearing an electric car, and jaywalking by stepping out from between vehicles means the driver drives like "a moronic asshat."

You need to recalibrate your scale.

This is probably the reason that Clinton was using her own email server: the government email systems sucked because they were run by incompetent people.

Really? Look, I'm no fan of the govt, but I seriously doubt that the email admin for the State Department, The State Department of the United States, is incompetent.

Now the person that set up Clinton's open email system in her bathroom, yeah. I believe he was incompetent.

He may be a transport, scheduling, and efficiency expert, but he's no Jobs.

Coding isn't another language. It requires a mindset. The vast majority of people don't want to code and will never have to code.

I consider coding to require the same skills as a novelist. An author has to build a world, keep the entire construct in his mind, make changes, and understand how those changes affect things before and after.

Apple is plowing forward due to Jobs' work and Apple under Cook has yet to release anything insanely great.
