Comment Re:There Goes Android's Marketshare (Score 1) 40

"you'll soon see the real reason why the Android platform has so many phones in the wild"

It's about choice. It's about competition. It's about all those things that will make America... (sorry, scratch that)

There's undoubtedly a lot of crappy Android phones on the market but there's also a lot of great phones among them. My current Moto Play Z is the greatest phone I ever had. Great battery life, SD storage, dual sim and everything works smoothly and reliably. At least as good as any Apple product but plays much better with others.

Did I mention it's also a lot cheaper?

a sane locking system that would not have an override on the inside so that occupants can leave the room whatever the state of the electronic lock.

Fail-safe instead of fail-secure would have to be mandatory in these cases. What if there was a fire?

"Beyond that, having a credential only gives you an advantage in the job market if other people don't have it. It should be obvious if 100% of the population had college degrees total compensation wouldn't go up one penny, and your degree would be completely worthless."

Unless of course the country as a whole would be able to compete with the rest of the world more effectively if the general level of education goes up. There must be some reason people in western countries (and Japan) are still making a lot more than people in the rest of the world.
