    makes it obvious that over 50% of the people on the Apple forums were and are blinded by only being able to "see the future" in terms of the past.

    When I saw the iPod, I bought APPL stock at $20/share. It is now by far my biggest stock holding in terms of $$$.

    Just had to check it: iPod was released Oct 23rd 2001 for $399. Assuming 8.25% sales tax that would be $431.92. That bought 23.8 AAPL shares at the closing prices of $18.14. There was a split, so you would have 47.6 shares worth $330.67 at close on March 18th, for a total of $15,740.

    I conclude that all those people buying iPods had not the slightest clue how the Apple share price would develop :D

    Question one. No, I'm not saying whites are as likely to commit a gun crime. I have no idea if that is true or not.

    But here's the question though: when we see protective cases for the new Nano? :confused:What do you want that for... my 2 1/2 year old iPod mini doesn't have any flaws - except a minute scratch in the screen after an unfortunate incident where that and my keys ended up in the same trouser pocket - even a tumbling down a concrete stairway didn't leave any marks... Never had any protective case on it (except for the belt clip), the minis are durable little buggers, and hopefully the new nanos will be likewise... :D

    300-600 mb over the air?


    They'd have to change the updates to be actual updates, rather than the "install the entire OS again" approach we have now.

    Haha, a pre order event? Wow, what a balls up.

    Apple rapped them over the knuckles for allegedly withholding stock and rightly so. I wonder if this is the result.

    I'm disappointed at thing along with the other updates. I preferred the old nanos.

    The new nano is disappointing on its look. I prefer if they don't make any change from the old model. simply a nano size mini......

    The iPad is a toy. For grownups.

    This is getting closer to an iPal - a handheld computer that does it all. That is my next purchase. It needs to be small but with a full screen and real-world-rugged. Will Apple release it this year?

    So there is more room for growth with Mac sales. Of course this is true because the market % is so low that it's easier to go up. This is like how Android skyrocketed, just more room to grow when nobody has your products.

    The only flaw with that is the rest of the market is shrinking.

    So if the market is down as a whole, and one manufacture is up, that one manufacturer is definitely doing something right.

    Forget about everything else for a second. Al Jazeera was actually supportive of the US' actions in Libya. People in Egypt and elsewhere are actually supportive of the US bombing a country in that region.

    That's absolutely amazing considering the damage GWB did to our standing in that part of the world.

    The next time some nutcase tries to recruit someone to blow himself up based on the idea that the US is the "bad guy" it is going to be harder now. So, maybe... just maybe, there is a bigger picture.

    Oh, and can anyone point me to the part of the Constitution that permits a standing army?

    I'm sure this is correct. AFAIK, this thread is about the UK, though.

    I don't want to drag this too far OT, but my arguments are germane for two reasons. First, the history of the black population in London will be just as critical in understanding the relationship between race and crime there as it is in the US (where I am more familiar with the issue). Power relationships, socioeconomic status, prejudice, media slant - these are all major factors in the way people percieve issues and the way they go about trying to understand and solve them. We need more data on the London situation before any judgments can be made.

    Second, likemyorbs's OP demonstrates his bias: [emphasis mine]

    Just read an article that says black men in London commit more than half of street crimes and gun crimes. They make up only 12% of londons population. These statistics are even higher than in the US and they can't blame slavery and Jim crow laws in London like they love to do here. What is the possible reasoning behind this? Very interesting.

    He is approaching the issue from the perspective that xeonophobia, racism and/or prejudice have little or no effect on a minority population in terms of their self identity, educational/economic/professional opportunities, or the nature of their relationship with the majority group. This could not be further from the truth.

    So again with the boohoo sob stories of past discrimination that young blacks today have never felt

    Why do rural whites in the south fly confederate flags, reenact battles and develop spurious revisionist theories about the Civil War? Why do they care? They never felt any of its effect, right?

    They are put at an advantage over whites today and have been for the last 40 years.

    Funny, the numbers don't bear that out. I have never seen a single piece of data that would indicate that blacks have any sort of advantage over whites, or even parity for that matter, in terms of education, income, or any other metric.

    And once again, you say nothing about other countries that have the same issue and no racial history like the US has, i've already asked you twice to acknowledge this and look at it in a more global way, and you keep mentioning slavery and jim crow laws which affected a tiny percentage of africans worldwide a long time ago. stop thinking only within the borders of the US.

    Whereas you'd prefer to prattle on about trailer the US. Fine, let's talk other countries - but what on earth is a racial history? I challenge you to find a single country with a significant black population that has no history of prejudice.

    Not only do they commit a disproportionate amount of the crime in mostly white countries

    Moving the goalposts again once you're proven aren't fooling anyone.

    they can't even seem to run their own countries in Africa without violence. WHY????

    In a word, colonialism. Again, read some history. It has nothing to do with them being black.

    Quit it with the politically correct "the white man is bringing the black race down" BS and look at it realistically.

    My primary basis for debate is fact. Yours is uncited assertion, accusation and "common knowledge" without any basis in fact. You are hiding behind weasel-words. This is not political correctness, it's reality. I am not trying to assert that any population carries no responsibility for its own behavior - but your apparent ignoroance or dismissal of absolutely critical contextual information makes your opinion fairly worthless in my eyes. How can you hope to understand anything in today's world if you dismiss the events and mechanisms that created it, or selectively ignore facts that disprove your baseless assertions?

    Sweet! I have a shortage of my favorite Beatles songs on my iPod. Most of my Beatles CDs had at least one scratch that prevented proper ripping into iTunes.

    Apple, you have that fixed in iTunes yet? I'd like to see the Cancel button actually work and also the ability to selectively rip or bypass any one song I want to on my disk.

    What are you talking about? For starters you don't have to rip an entire album, duh!

    Also if a disc is scratched, try this before you abandon ripping it, go into Advanced; choose Importing; check off Using error correction when reading Audio CDs. This will slow the import, but all CDs have redundancy build in, which allows for scratched discs to work.

    I wonder if that aluminium beveled logo has something to do with the design of the long awaited new MacBook Pros?...'s already featuring on the iPhone...

    Would Apple make a notebook computer with an :apple: logo that doesn't glow?

    Where is Apple still selling iPods that qualify for the back-to-school Mac+iPod deal? I can't find anything on the Apple Online Store (Switzerland) site...

    As stated by many prior to me, I think the update is a solid one but really wish it had a better way to handle the graphics.

    As a MBP owner who bought a rev1 model right when they came out -- and has been sending it in to fix its many, many problems constantly, and is now seeing it lag behind the iMacs in speed and power -- I feel like I bought a lemon. Thanks, Apple, for pissing in my face.

    I like when Apple doesn't announce something, i like surprises.

    One thing will Apple ever make a larger LCD display, or they will stay with the 30" for a while.

    Seeing the iMac 24", instead of 23". Seems like Apple upto something.

    I too think that the colors are ugly... there should always be a white ipod at every level.

    3GS is actually smaller than 4.3 :)

    4.3 - 423mb
    4.3.1 - 419mb

    Well, that is every online game, if we're being honest. Doesn't matter what you play, there are going to be people out there who just want to ruin the experience for others. It sucks, but it is the sad reality of the online world these days. The Halo community, in my opinion, is quite good and friendly, but it doesn't take but a very small group of individuals to ruin it. My only suggestion is to play with as many friends or nice players that you know. I have a handful of real-life friends who play Halo, but I also won't hesitate to add someone who I enjoyed playing with.

    I used to play a TON of Rocket Race in Halo 3. It was a crazy fun gametype, but it was also very easy to ruin for everyone, if you were that kind of person. So, I just started adding people to my friends list every chance I got when I had fun playing with people. Pretty soon, I had tons of people online who I could play with. We would fill up the lobby with actual, good players, thus ending any chance of griefing right from the start. I won't touch competitive Matchmaking any more unless I have enough people I know playing to fill up our team. Partly because of jerks, but mostly because it is just more fun when you have a team of people you know, and enjoy playing with.

    Not to be an @$$ but I am so tired of that pat answer of "you just need to play with friends'. It's kind of like the answer you get when you call tech support after you spent days googling for the answer to your problem, and they start with "Did you try turning it on & off?" ;) I know they are just doing their job, but it's obviousness is still something you're tired of hearing.

    Playing with friends is not always a constant option, sometimes you have to bite the proverbial bullet & play with randoms. I know for me, it is a necessity because I need to badly improve my skills. Have randoms tell me I suck is a no biggie, after all they don't say much when I own them. Letting your friends down cause you aren't that good does suck.

    What also sucks, and I still stick with my call,is that the Halo community contains the largest number of @$$hats to ever discover a microphone. From the well documented You Tube video of random players verbally harassing a gay player before a match even starts. To the almost pathetic way some players are addicted to the 'N' word. To the now immortal play style of wanting to be the only player who gets the best weapon or vehicle, and are willing to kill teammates to get it.

    Don't get me wrong, players use of the 'n' word isn't exclusive to Halo. I would say it was actually worse in Rainbow 6, but that's not the point. I believe that there's just something about Halo that brings out the worst in players. I'm reminded of the story of Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson the former UFC champ who won't play Halo online because of the crap on Halo. I used to play quite a bit of CoD MW2. When the Halo community as a whole thought the game was crap, it wasn't too bad. When they changed their mind, the game made it's hastier descent into the slums it's in now.

    I know it is every game on every system that has more than it's share of @$$hats, that goes without saying. I just believe ( and from reading some of the comments on Kotaku about the recent 1 day bannings of some players for abusing farming in Reach ) that the Halo community has more than it's share of people who's manhood is defined by playing online from the relative safety of their bedroom.
