I don't get this; why care about the amount of ports?

The only place where you need any amount of ports, is at a desk right? So I assume you have a desk with a non-bluetooth keyboard, mouse, printer, TimeMachine harddrive, maybe an iPad, monitor, etc. Then the only thing you need is a USB hub. You put the Macbook on the desk, connect power, USB and displayport, and you're done.

Comment It'll take a lot to get me to upgrade (Score 1) 110

It's going to take me a lot to upgrade. I've got an iPhone 6 Plus now. It's two years old but man, I've never had such a good phone. The phone battery has never actually run empty, and regularly I come home after a day with still 75% left. The screen is large and bright. All apps launch fast (except Facebook, which I deleted and now use in the browser). I can set the font nice and small, while still readable. The fingerprint-unlock is amazing, and it takes real great pics and optically-stabilized movies of my kid.

Not sure how they can improve it.

I wish Apple cared about sites like this. Have you seen their Mac hardware and pro software lately? Ignoring their technical and pro users is the #1 complaint against Apple these days.

iOS users diss android for the same reasons Mac users diss Windows. A failure to understand different criteria for choosing computers. Apple doesn't need to pay people to argue online.

Oh yeah! Mid 40's here and have been skydiving since 2012, and really gearing up on flying a wingsuit out of the plane for the last couple of years. Funnily enough life's been pretty awesome since then, so I'm in no hurry to rush into BASE, much less Wingsuit base, which seems like it has a ridiculously high fatality rate. I know three amazing wingsuit pilots, one who was my AFF instructor back in 2012, who have gone in this year. I think they were all trying to fly that ridiculous run in Charmonix. Cave diving and surfing the waves from collapsing glaciers in Alaska are similarly hazardous and awesome. There is no shortage of potentially deadly hobbies to get into!

Given the blatantly false hype on the game right up to the day before the launch, I'd say the refunds are preventing a much more expensive class action lawsuit that could very easily be won by the players by just running the trailer footage alongside the actual gameplay footage. What was promised was not delivered, and the only reason you had as many preorders as you did was due to the promises of the developers. In fact, now that I'm thinking about it and pissed off again, maybe I'll pen a letter to the FTC asking them to look into it!

You can actually do all that yourself now with their App Store app on your iPhone. They'll let you walk right out without even checking your bag. Someone keeps an eye on the door and they know when you pay with the app. Can ask for a bag if you want. Pretty slick, hope more stores do that in the future.
