Where is the location?

I can tell you one thing; The Boston store is doing pretty bad in terms of Surface sales. Actually the Boston store is doing bad in terms of any real sales.

The Apple store across the street is crushing the Microsoft store in terms of sales. There are lines at the checkout counter, unless you get there early or really late. I bet the iPad out sold the Surface in the Boston location alone 50 to 1 (Meaning for every 50 iPads Apple sold, Microsoft sold 1 Surface <<< And that is being lenient. Apple properly sold even more iPads for everyone Surface sold by the Microsoft store across the street) smile.gif

Also, the Boston Microsoft store has a game stop down the hall and a food court right next to it...

iPad! It's in the pad!

Yeah? It may be a little easier. I've never been bothered by it in Obj-C though.

Cool, Apple has successfully contributed to the dehumanization of our entire civilization with their retarded phone. People don't communicate anymore, not properly, there is no more human interaction as a result of this absurd useless gadget. People spend the majority of their time looking down. Also, what most users don't know is every movement they make is being tracked and recorded, amongst, every single other operation they perform on their phones, compliments of Apple straight to Big Brother databases.

Sure they may be worth $70 billion more, but look at what they are doing to people. Turning people into senseless drones, completely desensitized of anything resembling a human.

Lol, and people can't do that with any other phone, right ? rolleyes.gif

Lets be honest, people in big cities many times don't know each other, and are naturally shy and protective of themselves, so if the perfect excuse is there, they will grab it in order to not have to be looking at strange people, with the benefit that if the other people do the same, they are all spared of some awkward moments when they are feeling observed by strangers.

Yes, it would be very nice if people would just get along in a big city like if it was a small village where many people know each other and say "Good morning!" or "Hi, how are you doing ?" every time they come cross each other, but we all know that is most likely impossible and truth be told, undesirable really, that only happens in the movies, in real life people have to look out for themselves, saying "good morning" to a complete stranger in order to begin socializing can actually be dangerous because you don't know the person from anywhere, he / she could be dangerous.

And all I'm describing here is not sad, it's just human nature, you have to look out for yourself. Being in a train / subway station looking at your cell phone can be productive and saves you from potential hassles derived from contact with strangers.

And the main point is, people already behaved like this before cell phones, even before listening to an MP3 player / CD player / Walkman or to the radio. They either read the newspaper, looked at an ad on the wall, looked at their watch, adjusted their clothes, slept a little bit, etc. People just don't go out engaging just because it's apparently the "happy" thing to do in the movies.

You do understand that before smart phones people didn't just strike up conversations at the train station, they mostly just read never looking up from the printed word.

There once was a time then this wasn't a case, people have become more and more separated from each other - it becomes increasingly dangerous because of the assumptions about "people" in general made by tpi for instance. Technologies only made this separation worse. Technology was supposed to advance the human civilization, not regress it.

These smart phones and tablets, will spawn an entirely new generation of people - void of natural human interaction (Every one will live in their entirely own world - completely disengaged from society because of being totally occupied by their various devices). I imagine 20 years now many of them will be incapable of speaking proper English because of the "Newspeak" language developed and widely used from text messaging and other forms of fast communication. Funny thing is, I'm not even talking about the proletarians.

People became desensitized because of technology in general. It wasn't due to any one particular company in general. Actually you probably could throw the blame to all the companies that would give out really low cost/free phones for upgrades. We have become more and more digital as time goes by.

There my be but it hasn't been in the last 20 years.

From my perspective the more separation from each other we have the better off we are. In person communication limits the breadth of communication e-communication increases it. Human civilization has very much advanced in my life time and it is due to the world wide interconnectedness of people.

Personal communication tends to corrupt the message by people reading into body language and gestures. If I need you to do or know something it's far better for it to be written.
