Yosemite Beta updates... - TigerGman
You guys signed up just to run the beta. Are we supposed to be trying to update developer updates or wait till Apple pushes a version to us? I'm guessing we wait, but want to be sure I'm not missing anything. They've had at least 2 developer updates since we got the beta. ...

[quote]Quantities don't shrink or grow "in relation" to anything but themselves, reading comprehension has nothing to do with it.

[quote]Ridiculous to say they aren't desperate for every new iPhone model to be a hit[/quote] Ludicrous. Besides, seems to me that android manufacturers are the ones desperate for it to not be a hit. If larger size phones are such a target market Apple is missing that's soon to come to end. ...

[quote]It says that Apple desperately needs iPhone6 to be a hit. It should be clear that Apple is concerned about losing part of 'their' market, since they are making a larger phone in an attempt to get some of the high-end Android customers back. If this attempt fails, I'm pretty sure a lot of folk...
