And this EO doesn't impact green card holders either. Yes some were impacted on the initial bungled implementation, but it actually says nothing about green card holders who are resident aliens not immigrants. Those initially impacted and detained should not have been. That was an error in application of the EO, not something actually contained in the EO.

Bullshit. The original application of it included a directive from the White House to specifically include green card holders. The Alternative Facts are strong with you.

All nations should be looking out for their own best interests and not blindly accepting anyone.

I'd love to discuss your evidence that the U.S. has recently been accepting refugees into the country without vetting.

Come on, he has ALTERNATIVE FACTS on his side man! Give him a break! 18 months and at least 9 rounds of interviews and countless background checks, those are plainly just blindly accepting of everyone!

I use ZFS, with raid Z3, so, I personally go for the cheaper stuff. As long as I replace the drives when it fails, I'm good. Unless 3 of them fail at the same time.

But that's why I do a 1-2 month burn in before I deployed my last set of disks.

You are really such an expert on 64 bit arm architecture and iOS architecture aren't you? Have you even looked up any of the discussions that happened when Apple first delivered a 64bit CPU on a phone back in the iPhone 5S days, when none of the other manufacturers even had a solid roadmap? And why do you think things that are true in the wintel x86 world applies to iOS on ARM?

Apparently violating local laws is OK by you. If the US government rules that a Daesh app is illegal, should Apple keep it in the AppStore?

They are not removing it from other countries. Only from the country that banned it. Some how, this is news or issue? Seriously?
