My bank recently replaced its ATM cards with chip/pin. Where I used to step up to an ATM, swipe the card, and put it and my wallet away while the machine woke up. The rest of the transaction, I have my hands free, and I'm gone in 30 seconds.

if you put your wallet away after swiping your card, what did you do with the cash (which certainly doesn't come out before "the machine wakes up")? Put it in a gold clip so you can stylishly flip out one bill at a time at the strip club?

You mean "to most fanbois". Because I'm pretty sure you have no clue if/when Nokia or Motorola reached the billion devices sold. Or how many copies of Windows have been sold. Or how many Dell laptops. So don't insult people's intelligence when you speak about that Apple marketing crap as if you were an avid follower of the market in general.

Blow me.

You start with this:

"Look, I'm losing the argument, quickly throw in the insults!" What a loser you are.

and you end with this:

Fuck off you puritan retard. Learn about the rest of the world, and die in horror when you realize you're nothing but the rejects of the rest of the world. I'm done with you.

And you wonder why nobody takes you seriously?

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Bridge showed a dark side of Sweden, but your posts are doing their part too.

If you think Apple let the customers benefit when they negotiate a lower cost deal you've clearly misunderstood the situation. You can bet that watching a cable show over Apple TV would have been more expensve than watching it straight from the cable co. Because of the "high quality ecosystem", of course.

I wouldn't even want to be near anyone who feels a compulsive need to use the blackest tar possible and bring trumped up charges as soon as you find someone you don't like.

Sorry but I stopped reading after that sentence. The fact that you accuse me of "bringing trumped up charges" clearly shows what a one-trick pony you are. It's always smear campaigns with you, isn't it? Me, or the CIA, or big corporations... all the same.

For the record I don't make shit up about people I don't like. If anything I often defend people I severely dislike when I think they're victims of a demented pitch fork mob (like that woman from Theranos or Donald Trump).

As for Assange he's just a total asshole and I don't have to make this up; running away from Sweden gave him the comfortable narrative of being "persecuted" and threatened with extradition. Only a guilty coward woud run away in this context. And this completely jives wih his double standard when it comes to privacy; everyone's secrets can be exposed, except for his or Wikileaks. In my opinion the fact that Wikileaks has achieved what they did so far is *in spite* of Assange, not because of him.

Did you heard the real news or did that billion devices thing dazzled you too much? Apple's revenue went down 15%, second quarter in a row their iPhone sales are in free fall. Even with their profit margin and a handful of iDiots who will keep replacing their phone with the latest model, it's a nosedive.

Meanwhile, Samsung saw a 12% jump in revenue - they now beat Apple's revenue (45 vs 42 billions).

"Sex without a condom" and "sex without a condom while you are asleep after having sex with a condom the previous night" are two different things. I don't know how you figure that she gave her consent while she was passed out but if that's not rape in your book you can be sure I'll never let you date my daughter.

Read this excellent account from Andrew O'Hagan about the time he spent with Assange while he was asked to write a book about him.

This should give you a better idea of the "real" Assange. Interesting quote:

I asked him if he had a working title yet and he said, to laughter, ‘Yes. “Ban This Book: From Swedish Whores to Pentagon Bores”.’

Assange spent 2 weeks in Sweden. One of his accusers is a woman engaged in local politics who had her career ruined in the aftermath. And yet people still call that a smear campaign organized by the US intelligence service?

Why don't you use that skepticism to question things that don't make sense for once.

Thank you for supporting my point. You start by claiming that those women didn't "suffer" or got extradited (which would have never been an issue for Assange if he had faced the charges in Sweden instead of running away) then you ramble on about honeytraps and Afghanistan. It always come back to the smear campaign scenario.

Here's a citation.

The woman, whose name has not been disclosed, said that when the allegations became public she received threats and found it impossible to work.

She said that she was judged in a "gigantic court of public opinion with anonymous judges and witnesses who guessed wildly".

There's also a good article on Slate about this. And many others. All shills and honeypots of course.

You're one of those anonymous judges and witnesses, thank you for your contribution to making the world a better place.
