Dear Apple,

Would you please announce if you're going to drop the 1/8" headphone port or not? I'm pretty tired of all the tech sites I visit being covered in rage posts about head phone jack rumors.

Frankly, I don't care what you do. The iOS update nags that come every day with no way to turn off have ensured that I won't buy another iPhone until that crap stops ... so just shut up the whiners please

If you live in NC, do not under any circumstances use The Fifth Season Heating and Air LLC.

They were supposed to come fix a fan relay this morning. They left the house with the fan stuck on, never turning off and no working heat or cooling.

This is awesome when you have a 2 year old and its below freezing outside ...

To top it off, the technician refuses to acknowledge they left the house without it working and is blaming the thermostat ... which has been working fine until they came today ... for the problem.

Simply put, they are incompetent and flat out lie; telling my wife and I conflicting stories about what they did and what was wrong.

How do you know Bill Cosby is guilty? Kanye says he's innocent 😥

Showing a video of him drugging the women would be less incriminating than Kanye saying he's innocent.

Its ridiculously sad that we have to have laws to 'allow' our children to walk to and from school without being arrested because a bunch of ultra-liberal nut jobs with no kids decide to call the cops on a 6 and 10 year old walking home from the park.

Why is it that people with no kids are the ones who think they know all about how to raise kids?

HINT: YOU DON'T, regardless of how many books you've read or classes you've attended.

A victory for the Free Range parenting movement. A loss for overzealous cops.

I had a Wikipedia edit reverted and an argument with the douche who runs that bot that did it ... because he found some newspaper that disagrees ...

Best part, the change in question? The year of graduation for someone I went to high school with and stood by during graduation. Good job wikipedia, continuing to get things wrong because you're editors are just ignorant assholes.

Yes, I pointed to the schools records (all online) which show the year he graduated properly ...

Dear Google,

Is there ever going to be a version of Android intended for consumers?

What I mean is, at any point are you going to make Android not a privacy invading POS that is effectively worthless without allowing Google to see everything I do and make me the product?

I don't want FREE, I want 'Not a pile of steaming dog turds designed for stealing my habits'

Mind. Freaking. Blown. Microsoft SQL Server on Linux. The world has changed in the last 10 years.
It’s been an incredible year for the data business at Microsoft and an incredible year for data across the industry.

Visual Studio Code is supposed to be a visual studio like IDE that runs on Windows, OS X and Linux ... and it does run on them ... and they took it so far as to make it full blown crappy Linux app ... complete with doing nothing more than opening a JSON file in the text editor when you choose preferences from the menus ...

Can someone please explain to me why in this day and age ... we still don't have some sort of buzzer/siren on TV/DVR/Whatever remotes yet so we can find them quickly when lost?

I understand OLD remotes, but as an example the AppleTV remote is bluetooth with infrared for other devices, no reason it can't have a freaking finder-tone that can be triggered by the AppleTV (or any other bluetooth device like an iPhone or Mac, don't expect them to support Android/WinMo phones).

I can not be the only person who regularly has to go searching for the remote when my 2 year old runs off with it and sticks it in his toy box or something.

Awesome staff, always friendly and helpful. Has ethanol free gas at all pumps and sell fishing licenses on site, which boaters should appreciate. Lots of snacks and drinks, a few of the essential camping and boating supplies. Plenty of pre-made foods like small pizza, sausage biscuits, hot boiled peanuts. A few toys for younger kids. Live minnows and night crawlers, all the essential fishing supplies if you're in a hurry and forget to bring something. Not a large selection of options, but the basics are covered well enough to save you a trip to Cary 99% of the time. Kiddie rods/reel combos as well as a small selection for adults. I've been visiting Jordan Lake for about 10 years now, last 5 with my boat and they've always been friendly and helpful though admittedly at this point they also recognize me coming in the door so that might help :) The only bad thing I can say is that this station is the most popular one as its the most convenient when coming from the East side of the lake (i.e from Cary and Raleigh) so it can get a bit crowded, but I've never waited more than just a few minutes for a gas pump to open up, even on a summer weekend. This is the only station I will go to on the lake at this point, I've never gone wrong by stopping here.

If you forgot some fishing gear and don't want to run home or into town, then its okay to go here, otherwise, go across the street to Cruizers. The staff is very rarely friendly. I've spent a lot of time on Jordan Lake over the past 5 years or so, and these guys always seem like its a chore to have me buy from them. They do have live minnows, and a good stock of fishing supplies and the few bits of camping and boating gear that I always end up forgetting on my first few trips for the season. I don't buy gas here so I'm not sure if its Ethanol free or not, station across the street is ethanol free for certain. The staff just makes me want to avoid stopping here often enough to buy gas.

Excellent service! I placed a late night order via paypal ... and messed it up horribly in my sleep deprived state, sent them an email about it as soon as I realized what I had done. Within 30 minutes of them opening the next morning I had an email with what steps to take, basically make another order with the missing parts and proper shipping selection and they'd straighten it all out and refund me what was due. Placed the order, including additional parts I wasn't sure I needed ... with a note that I didn't really want those parts if I didn't need them. Within a couple hours I got confirmation of what I was intending to order, and the order shipped that day, with the right parts and a refund for the bits I shouldn't have ordered. Got my package the next morning (I ordered on Thursday and wanted to fly on Saturday) via FedEx over night, everything was well packed and more or less perfect. I tried Hobby Wireless because I was having issues with another company who claimed to have things in stock but didn't and couldn't fix their website to show the correct stock status, and nearly missed the weekend flights because of it; Hobby Wireless saved my Saturday (this morning!) flights and gave me a great FPV system. Excellent customer service and fast shipping.

Good food, friendly service. The menu is a mix of the typical favorites, but with a non-traditional twist such as the bison chili, its all great food. I've never liked catfish in my life, but this place has good clean catfish. Everyone loved the catfish bites appetizer, even me! Indoor and outdoor seating in the shade. The staff was very friendly towards us both times I've visited with an infant or two in toe both times, always made sure the kids had what we needed. The menu changes every so often to keep things mixed up. If you're going to be looking for food west of Jordan Lake after a good day on the lake, this is where I would go.
