Reasonable Facsimile Re:Yeah, but when will they make a larger iPhone? (162 comments)

Having hands that one of my kids once told me resembled bear paws... oversized and clumsy, something about the same size as the Galaxy S3 would be ideal for my purposes, because I've always found the iPhone display to be unusably tiny for anything involving complex interactivity (such as texting, for instance).

Puny human iPhone make Hulk sad.

Bad Software Runs the World

Reasonable Facsimile Re:Yeah, but how do you measure 'Quality' (349 comments)

There are ways to determine quality. One pretty standard way is to count the number of bugs found during testing each phase of development (design, coding, unit test, product test, integration tests and after its in production).

Those can be valuable metrics, but finding and fixing a lot of bugs can't improve the innate quality of the item under development/test. In other words, you can't test quality into the product.

Critics Blast Apple's Cheesy New Ad Campaign

Reasonable Facsimile Re:Successful ad campaign is successful (244 comments)

but if apple had filmed a turd for 20 seconds and published that as an official advert it would have the highest viewcount on youtube - however I really doubt that would mean it's a successful advert for them in building of their brand image.

People would have said they liked the new fully cornerless design and swirly textures. Brown is obviously the new white (or black) and you have to be impressed by the new smell feedback technology. It's soft and warm to the touch as well, making it comfortable to hold.

I mis-read "cornerless" as "corn-less."
