An amazing mark by any means you measure it. It is a non-essential gadged, expensive, still relatively young. And it sells by tens of milions of units every quarter. It is a statement to Apple's refinement to invisible details.

Snowden revealed ultra secret info regarding US national secuirity. His actios was so wrong he has to live in hiding and fleeing justice. Now he lives in Russia, a country that limits liberty, calls crime what is perceived as freedom, is enemy to liberty - and he's called a "hero"?? Hello, you guys enjoying internet, your freedom of speech and other safe democratic day-by-bay habits you take for granted, join Snowden in Russia even if for a brief time as a tourist. You'll see how wrong you are.

Smartwatches (not the sports-only variants) make sense in the business field. As for Apple, it makes as huge mistake: its updates are yearly. It should speed up the updates for both hardware and software, for Apple Watch.

Brazil is the wrong place, and Olympics the wrong event to be go and be spotted. Who wants to be photographed side by side with the likes of Maduro?

I still have that classic white Macbook running Snow Leopard and it works great. But, out of curiosity, I visited the Apple Store in Sao Paulo, and, gahhh!, the price of the new, simpler, Macbook is the same of a second-hand car!! No wonder sales are down. BTW, I felt that the new keyboard is great. Just have to get used to it.

I agree with those saying the rude reviews are not about misoginy, but it's about making a horrible version of a 1980's classic. Even if there were men, dogs and cats in the movie - it would be one of those movies that make you feel like fighting to get your money back. There are all-female movies that are superb, "Green Fried Tomatoes" is one of them. And there are other all-female garbage too, "Charlie's Angels" comes to my mind.

Well, England had it coming. I wonder what new bad news could happen to the island? An AKB48 tour? Donald Trump marrying Prince Andrew?

More than expecting the agony and death of EU, I think we'll see the death of UK. The Venezuela of Europe.

English pride again will make England poorer and more isolated. She hasn't learned the lesson that pride (being superior cultural and racially to the colonized territories, then), leads to isolation (it lost all of its now richer territories). And it's a pity that people, even in this forum, doesn't understand (haven't read, perhaps) that EU from the beginning wasn't merely about trade, but about wars too (avoid political chaos that lead to WW I and II). England is the old Japan: cold, proud, an island, but Japan left the Meiji era, England has just entered its own one.

I am quite pragmatic about Brexit: when was Britain most prosperous times (after the colonization era)? Answer: the last 30 years - within EU.

Awarding the Olympics to Rio could only be worse than awarding the games to Venezuela or Iraq. Lula's administration bribed IOC to get the games against the will of the population. Now we probably will see blackouts during some matcher, toilets without running water. Still in time to cancel the games.

Thank God he was found alive. I don't understand people foreseeing the past, asking how searchers didn't think of the hut. Huh??

OMG, hope he is finally found, alive. His missing reminds me of an American boy who just vanished in thin air some years ago in Hokkaido too. Last I read, he was never found.
