Any chance that Ebola turns into a pandemic? Or does it kill too quickly?

Re: Zoom

Periodically, the screen on my 5 will zoom in, making the text about twice as big.

Double tap three fingers. See Settings / General / Accessibility / Zoom. It's a real pain if you don't remember what this is or that you have it set. [more]

Facts wrong again

I don't see partnering to produce better software to address a new market to be "innovation" in any but the broadest sense. It certainly has nothing to do with how I think of Apple as innovative.

Re: for SP--and the rest of us

My understanding is that sitting at home and griping about other people uses very little energy. It's as green as it gets.

Re: So how fast is the new low end iMac?
