Re: Field Report: Initial iPhone 6 day

Did they have the new models on display at the tables?

Yes, I meant to mention this in my original post, but they did the checkout right on the tables. Basically all of the tables were being used, and I was checked out at the actual [more]

Field Report: Initial iPhone 6 day

I hadn't seen any field reports for the iPhone release day yet, so I thought I'd post my experience.

So, for reasons that are not worth going into other than the fact that ATT is annoying, I didn't get a chance to pre-order my new iPhone 6 [more]

Re: where to begin

I don't think we have anything we could return. We did have a big yard sale few months ago. I donated my share of the money to my niece which she used for a mission trip.

You are broke. I think you know this based on what you [more]

Re: Will Putin call NATO's bluff?

In any conflict between Russia and western powers India will remain completely neutral. China, however, is a different story. If Russia bumbles its way into a nasty ground war in the Ukraine and the Baltic region, then China may be seriously [more]

Re: IPad and RAM

One addendum, I absolutely agree that tabs discarding their contents when they run out of memory is a bad experience for the user. I was just pointing out that there may not be an easy fix.

Re: IPad and RAM

So I would describe this behavior as very bad, if not actually buggy. (Was it the programmers intention that the contents of web pages be lost? If not, then this is a bug.)

It's clearly their intention. They've had lots of opportunity [more]

Re: IPad and RAM

It's another element of "planned obsolescence", I suppose.

Look, I don't disagree that iPads need to move to more RAM, but it's not as simple as that. And I completely disagree with the offhand "planned obsolescence [more]

Re: Global Warming Meets Occam's Razor

I swear that LorebCobb is the smartest person I know, if I only know him via an oblique connection on the inter webs.

Ugh. Now if only I could spell his name right. Or if the Fool would add an edit post button.

Actual Benghazi news

"I can confirm that on Sunday, June 15 the U.S. Military — in cooperation with law enforcement personnel — captured Ahmed Abu Khattalah, a key figure in the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012. He is in U.S. [more]

Re: Carney Quits on Putz President

Name one policy that you can directly point to with incontrovertible evidence that resulted in the collapsing of the economy?

Incontrovertible evidence is impossible, since we can't go back in time and see what would happen without [more]

Re: Carney Quits on Putz President

Any Liberals want to admit that they went too far criticizing Bush
