People will fork out a few hundred every few years because the last trinket they bought has been obsoleted by the manufacturer prematurely, either by making the latest software run like shit (Apple, Google Nexus) or by never releasing updates to begin with even if there are egregious security problems (most of the rest of Android).

Hardware can't be remotely upgraded over Wi-Fi - there is a measure of lock-in there that cannot be dealt with.

Yeah, this seems to be the excuse that supporters of a certain candidate they like.

A leader isn't one who exclusively follows polls. A leader is one who sees what is right, and gets the polls to follow them.

Example: Where was Hillary on gay marriage? Following the pack until the polls shifted, then she ran out front and claimed she was always there, when in reality she was one of the last Democrats to get on board. Even Obama beat her to that one, and he was outed by Biden.

Man. That's great.

Where is this free Linux cloud service where I can stand up entire enterprise architectures and applications securely, robustly, with fault tolerance and multi-zone availability? How have I not heard of this service before?

Oh, because it doesn't exist and you couldn't even be bothered to read through the first 4 words of the god damn title, much less the summary.

It's like Pavlov and his dogs - the word Microsoft shows up on this site and people just start hitting submit.

Don't forget that believing in this science is good, but SCIENCE IS EVIL when it comes to NUCLEAR POWER and GMO FOODS! Fuck THAT science!

Brought to you by cherry-picking facts and information that align with your own narrow-minded beliefs, and hand-waiving everything else away.
