Quick Question: (Completely off-topic)... In civil engineering how do you tell the B.S. candidates from the actual quality candidates? So as far as I've seen it's about 1 good in 20 total. I must be too judgmental. Also, anywhere to find your contact info?

Apple Is Forced By EU To Give 2 Years Warranty On All Its Products

qwp The fall of apple has amazing acceleration (270 comments)

Every day I keep seeing more and more apple products cracked, shattered, outdated, unsupported and useless. The company who is famous for their support and quality is oddly now unsupportive and producing low quality products. I think the finance guru's have infiltrated the ranks of what was once a excellent budding technology company. A great example of this is the proprietary lock-in technology death is facetime. While facetime is just google video chat, the two systems do not integrate. Ultimately sealing Skype's dominance as a unifier in the world of video chat. This position is a direct failure to lead a market with innovation and instead strangles an emerging market with restrictions. iMessage is another great example of apple's failure as a leader. That said, Andriod is a lost puppy, sony shoots their customers repeatedly, Nokia still can't find their white flags to make friends, RIM way up in canada just heard about a guy named Obama and Microsoft can't figure out which company to buy. I guess I see why Apple is the market leader, all it takes is to beat out the rest....

guess at the switching encryption method for ever.
