The news for me here is that people weren't aware of this.

Airlines control ticketing on their flights, does anyone think overbooking is an accident? I can't count the number of times I've heard a gate agent announce "This fight is overbooked and we are looking for volunteers to...".

Sure, Clinton sucks, but the big knock against her and her email server was that she wasn't secure enough with it.

My quibble was the blatant arrogance of the act. That private server was clearly a move to preserve final editing rights of her tenure at the State Department and evade any future FOIA requests that may crop up during her next run for the presidency; and was there ever any doubt that she would run again? The fact that she thought she could get away with it after experiencing the fallout from the exact same move by members of the Bush administration while she was a sitting Senator in Washington reinforces the feeling that her arrogance knows no bounds. She took a page out of the neocon playbook and figured she would show them how it's done.

I believe there are PLENTY of other non-Mac computers that don't meet Oculus' specs. In fact, "Earlier this year, Nvidia stated that roughly only 13 million computers – less than 1 percent of all computers on the planet – are powerful enough to smoothly run VR games.". So now what?

Which completely misses his point, i.e., that there is no Mac at any price or spec powerful enough to support Oculus. We aren't talking about cheap boxes here.

“It just boils down to the fact that Apple doesn’t prioritize high-end GPUs. You can buy a $6,000 Mac Pro with the top-of-the-line AMD FirePro D700, and it still doesn’t match our recommended spec. So if they prioritize higher-end GPUs like they used to for a while back in the day, we’d love to support Mac. But right now, there’s just not a single machine out there that supports it.”
