Why couldn't Apple prevent the camera protrusion on the iPhone 6? There's an amazing amount of equipment in that tiny volume. The engineers that made that impressive camera as small as it is deserve a big raise. The only way to avoid the protrusion would be to make the body thicker. Since 87% of iPhone users use a case, and the protrusion is really quite slight, I doubt there are more than 300 people upset about it, but there are many happier for a thinner phone.

How can Apple miss things like the iPhone bending? They are calling it Apple's "Bend-ghazi". I know, it's simply shocking. Just look at this! How could Apple have missed this? Oh, wait.... this is a Sony Xperia you say? It's not an Apple iPhone. Apple has allowed journalists to visit the labs where it does test phones for resistance to bending stresses. So perhaps this story is yet another example of how some individuals use the press to manipulate the Apple share price.

Why use Adobe Fireworks given Adobe appears to be focusing mainly on Photoshop? • File size - fireworks pngs even complex multi-page documents are very small • Flexibility - multiple states, pages, animations in one file • Implementability - easily coded. • Vector on pixel grid - most vector apps don't care about pixels, or don't give you the fine grained pixel snapping absolutely necessary when making icons and UIs that will be used at different resolutions.

Android gets it first, but Apple gets it right.

ALL CAPS. Sometimes, you'll come across the especially un-tech savvy Baby Boomer who inexplicably writes their emails in all caps.

The email disaster can be mortifying, hurtful, or even friendship-damaging. - Emailing Person X to say something bad about Person Y and accidentally emailing it to Person Y instead. - Replying just to Person X on a group chain to say something private and accidentally replying to all. - Forwarding an email to someone and forgetting that below the email is a whole correspondence chain that has something sensitive in it, maybe even about the person you just forwarded it to.

This isn't a new video game controller. This is a steering wheel in a modern Formula One car.
