Apple Says Many Users 'Bought an Android Phone By Mistake'
I had a 3GS that I got used. Last year, Rogers in Quebec had a deal with 5G of data, unlimited texting, unlimited local calling and domestic long distance for $70. I got an iPhone 5 on contract. What the hell? Anyhow, the clerk started pushing me towards Samsungs, but once he found out I already had an iPhone, stopped pushing the Nexus.
He then told me that Rogers pushes the Android phones harder because there is more profit in it for them.
Whether it's true or not, I can't say, but Tim Cook might be right in saying that people bought something that they were manipulated into. However, that's business and I am sure that there are people who are walking around with expensive Apple products that they don't need or planned to by either.

Compared to my 1st computer's memory ...
My first computer was a VIC-20 as well. Now my laptop has 6Gb. I am guessing that I am in the 100 000 range I learned that I was a lousy coder back then, so I'm a tester now. To many out of memory errors.

Canada Launches ACTA Bill
....it seems to me that's where this is heading unless the Canadians get some backbone.

USMA: Going the Extra Kilometer For Metrication
The US is officially Metric, right?

I think the reason that retired Canadians who six months minus a day in Florida or Arizona has more to do with US immigration laws as provincial regs on regarding the revocation of health insurance. Canadians can stay in the US for up to six months without a visa. I'm sure other sunnier countries have similar rules regarding non-working foreigners staying for extended periods of time.
