Apple tells its customers to shut up, or else - Blogger threatened with legal action | TechEye
Did you follow the links and read the email messages to and from Apple? Very interesting story and it ticks me off. Sorta makes me want to antagonize Apple. Smiley!
At least he left "irregardless" alone.
I am pushing for wide-spread use of irregardless. I think it is just as valid as "fo shizzle ma nizzle" which apparently is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African American brother"
So get behind me and join "The National Association Of Any Damn Combination Of Letters Can Be A Real Word." We need a web site and Yahoo Group or we will fail.
OK, someone asks 4 questions in one post. You do your best to answer each question, and sometimes think that linking them the a thread (with about 15 posts so its not like reading war and peace) that clearly answers one of the questions is better. Then you log on later in the day and they are whining about how iPhone doesn't do this and it is unacceptable and are asking about memory management. Come on, you thanked me for my answers, click the links and read the posts. I may not have been the most eloquent post on the thread, but it was pretty clear by all the other posts. And it was pretty clear that the thread wasn't read.
I don't know if this is a rant or me venting, but at least I feel better.
Ya know what really grinds my gears? Rubik's cubes. I have owned a Rubik's Professor cube for over 4 years and still haven't solved it.
I am going to rant on deer. I had to take evasive manuevers this morning to avoid hitting one on my way to work. A few years back I hit one on my way to work (Actually, it hit me, ran right into the side of my car). What is up with them? Are they mad at us that we killed off Bambi's mom all those years ago, and so are taking it out by systematically executing suicide attacks on our vehicles? I swear, every time I see them on the side of the road, they look up, and I can see their beady little eyes looking at me, and I just know they are thinking "Oh, I could mess your car up SOOO bad." Stupid deer.
Hahahaha! Dude one Halloween night I had to go out to grab some dinner and it being Halloween, you'd think you would have children getting in your way right? So I was already going slow and watching out for kids, but instead a deer gets in my way!!! I was like wtf! lol
And the stupid things walk up on my front steps and eat my Holly bushes when it snows. The dog loves that at 2:00 AM.
Too many people hand feed the damn things. I had to fix bird feeders so the deer couldn't get the seed, now the heated birdbath is where they can't get it, either.
I was chasing them out of the yard one day, my son-in-law decided to help, and being a farm boy, son-in-law put on a move that would shift a Hereford bull. Deer didn't move and just stood there with a "where's my food look"
I'd love to have Asimov's Neuronic Whip.
Dummy mobile phones, those useless non-functioning lumps of plastic and cardboard they have on display at mobile phone shops. Why do they do it? AFAICT the only exception are Apple iPhone dealers. Was in the Samsung shop, there was not a single real phone on display at all.
How am I supposed to know if a new phone is any good or not from basically what are cardboard cutouts?
I go to the supermarket, I don't see dummy produce.
I go to be electrical store, I don't see dummy TVs, laptops and stereos.
I go to the jeweller, I don't see dummy watches.
I go to the menswear store, I don't see dummy suits and shirts.
...yet in the mobile phone shops, they're all dummy products.
I thought it might have been a theft thing, but they have like plastic replicas of $10(USD) Nokias, NOT the real thing. While Apple is happy to let people try out real iPhones freely and without restrictions. iPhones are probably the most expensive phones there are and most likely to get stolen.
This is not just in China, happens in the UK as well.
ULT's. Unnecessarily Large Trucks, characterized by massively oversized tires and the need for a ladder to enter the vehicle. Typically driven fifteen miles over the posted limit. Used in town for grocery shopping.
LOL.. you'll probably appreciate this thread over at StyleForvm.
Saw a Butt Ugly SUV Today
I mean really! Wtf. They always on one of the lines when u drive beside em and there always in the city? Why is your monster truck not in a swamp somewhere being useful
What? You don't like my life sized Hot Wheels car?!?
Yeah, I hate those too. Let's go and get a lift kit for the truck! And some huge tires. And you can't forget the mudflaps with the woman's silhouette. >.>
Might depend on WHY it was built. I would think some auto tech schools would build one just to teach. Who buys it is anyone's guess. Out here, there are places where a real high clearance vehicle is used for sport (off roading), ranching, etc.
One of our local high schools is restoring Model As from the ground up.
True, and I have no issues with such vehicles when there is a valid use. My complaint is when these things are used exclusively in town, on smooth streets. A purpose built vehicle with two and a half feet of ground clearance that gets three gallons to the mile isn't needed to get to the video store.
You sir, are evil.
Well, since this is an Android forum, I'm going to just go into things about technology and probably make a few people angry.
1. People who say Windows is too hard to use and that Mac is simpler.
Oh my gosh. I have used Mac a lot. It is so hard to use. So many little things that make it annoying to operate. Ugh, I just hate it.
2. People who say PS3 is better than Xbox.
This doesn't bother me as much, as they are fairly close, but it still makes me want to argue.
3. People who say iOS is better than Android.
Kill me now. Android is faster, cleaner, doesn't crash NEARLY as much, more powerful, more customizable, and basically everything that the iPhone isn't. I'm not just being a FanDroid here, I also own an iPod Touch 4th Gen.
4. When my friends have no clue what I'm talking about when I'm talking about only the simplest things in technology.
I really hate the anxiety lately. Anxious, nervous, twitchy, can't sleep. Fatigued. Sigh.
But, on a more upbeat note, Zooey Deschanel was awesome on snl. First time I've watched snl in a long time. <3
The only thing buging me at the moment is the radio shack add that keeps poping up at every page i open in here. But i know AF has to make money.
What annoys me the most about those vehicles with an extra long bed and full size crew cab is parking in a space that barely holds my older Tacoma. (which is shorter than some older cars from the 60s)
Tell me about it! My S-10 is long enough, I'm careful of where I park. Some of these D-bags leave their ULT's wherever they want!
Why does facebook think I want to make more friends? That is kinda annoying. They are shoving this 'make fake friends online' thing right at me. .... I guess that's the nature of the beast.
Facebook needs an Eff Off button. Particularly if you only have an account to deal with companies/devs that have home and help pages there.
Paper cuts. I got one yesterday trying to open some mail, right on the bit of skin that runs between my index and middle finger on my right (dominant) hand. It is soooo annoying, especially in a spot that in constantly stretching.
