Too expensive. No one in South Africa can afford it (except for the super rich).

Man gets fairly and DEMOCRATICALLY elected to position of women's officer (to address discrimination), feminists get upset and successfully demand he resigns AND apologize !

FTA:
"The fact I have been ridiculed for trying to serve the women of this campus and our community more broadly is extremely disappointing...How can we expect our men to stand up for women if they are mocked and insulted for trying to help the cause."

The student union has since introduced a requirement that candidates for the position sign a statutory declaration confirming they identify as female.

President Heidi La Paglia could not explain why Mr Ritchie polled much higher than the female student who contested the position.

"Whether James had good intentions or not, he does not fit that description, we think it's right that he has stepped out of this role," she said.

His resignation letter:

The male student elected as women's officer at the University of Tasmania steps down, challenging his critics to do more to fight discrimination.

Men are also mistreated in society in a number of ways. As an example young boys being taught to bottle up their emotions inside. I would love for woman who are empthetic and understanding of these issues to stand up for men and all people for that matter. They can talk to men and ask them what their needs are. Just as women can learn to talk to men who truly care and truly listen.

Why The Verge is Called iVerge Revealed by Latest Bendgate Article

Some of you may remember that, the other day, Verge Editor Dan Seifert experienced Apple's #Bendgate problem for himself. Not only did his new iPhone bend, but it did so while protected by a case.

Given the unfortunate decision by +The Verge​​ to spend little time reporting on Bendgate, most of which amounted to repeating Apple's official statements and comparing bending iPhones to bending bananas, this would have been a great time for a mea culpa. He could have even shown that at least he had journalistic integrity, by acknowledging that Bendgate has been a real problem for many and by calling on Apple to be more transparent about the extent of the problem.

Instead he spent much of his article describing what a joy it was to take it to be returned at his local Apple Store. Leaving aside his unprovable conviction that they could not have known he was a Verge journalist (as if it would have been implausible for Apple to learn about his Tweets, identify his nearest Apple Store, and circulate an image of him to employees), he seems utterly oblivious to the reality that not everyone trying to return their bent phones has enjoyed such impeccable customer service. Let alone the fact that millions and millions of people don't live near Apple Stores and can't count on Apple to fix their phone if it suffers this defect.

No, given the chance to prove he isn't just another iVerge writer, Mister Seifert's article says very little except how great Apple Customer Service is (to him), what an awesome phone the new iPhone is, and why he'd never change his mind about buying one. If he can be said to offer any sort of apology, it isn't much, little more than a matter-of-fact acknowledgement that the bending can happen with normal use.

This is the sad state of modern tech journalism. This isn't an Editor for Cult of Mac, but a publication that pretends to give unbiased information that readers can rely upon. iVerge, indeed.

#Bendgate
#Bendgate. In the roughly six weeks that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been in customers' hands, there have been reports that the devices bend without any provocation from owners. (There has also...

If Android Wear had launched with this same exact form and UI, people would have ridiculed it endlessly.

I originally said that in September (http://goo.gl/Qbnim7). Can't help but think the same today.

Ha! The Moto 360 would run circles around this tired, square design (both puns intended).

THIS is why Apple Pay will gain traction. Not because of any technical reason. No ease of use story. Not even because of Apple marketing. Nope its because the media freely advertises for Apple and tends to be ignorant of the actual tech scene.

Of course just about everyone reading this probably knows that this author could have been buying nuggets with his phone for 2 years now.  But the author is so excited about finally being able to do what some of us have been doing he not only talks about it but gives you step by step instructions. Still wondering why Apple gains traction anyone?

What's worse though is that not only did the media not give this welcome to the future treatment to Google Wallet... they BASHED it because NFC stands for "Nobody F'in Cares".

http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/12/nfc/

From the TechSlump article...

"Want to use NFC on your phone to pay for something? Asking the cashier ‘can I tap that?’ just sounds euphemistic."

And  yet that's exactly what the guy is doing in the picture shown is excited to write about it. All because.... Apple.

Now I think I get why Google doesn't even try to work the timing and marketing the way Apple does. I doesn't matter.The idiot tech media will at worst bash and at best ignore anything new they bring to the table until Apple does it at which point they'll advertise Apple's solution free of charge. 

Mainstream tech media has hit rock bottom I believe. iVerge is nothing but a fashion magazine and TechSlump is TMZ.  Its time for a true tech loving publication that doesn't care about Apple's black list to rise up.

If Apple does it, then it must be new and innovative. That Steve Jobs is a genius... a benevolent God, really. This will be a hit in retirement homes everywhere; for people scared of computers and robots --the Apple demographic.

I guess Islamic State has ruined any chances that ISIS mobile payments may have had.

Food is just very Meh. Didnt taste fresh at all. Liberal use of iceberg lettuce. Service leaves a lot to be desired. Don't be swayed by the ambiance. Music is awful. How many times do I have to listen to Bright Eyes? Honestly, go to Chipotle and save your money. Better yet, if you want good vegan, go to Sage or Cafe Gratitude.

I've been going to A4 Fitness for a while now and I highly recommend it. The trainers are really relaxed, professional and down to earth. Adam, the owner, really cares about his clients and goes out of his way to make it work for them. Just a great and positive environment overall.

Wow, the manager there has zero respect for customers or humans in general. I had ordered 3 tablets by mistake. I called Staples 5 minutes after the order and they said they couldn't modify it, 5 minutes after! On the phone they told me to just return it to the store in person and that my coupon code(which gave me $30 off) should still work. I went into the store once I received the tablets. The girl at the counter was nice enough but I had to wait 20 minutes just for them to get someone on the phone to confirm that I could return the items. I then asked if they were going to honor the coupon, which I had mentioned I wanted to remain for the one I was keeping. The manager goes out of his mind and starts accusing me of lying to him about what I wanted. It put such a bad taste in my mouth, I just returned them all and left.

Dr. Julio Terra has great positive energy to him which makes his office a nice place to be. My girlfriend went to him for various dental issues and had a good experience.
