Just for once, I’d like a username and password prompt to say: “That’s close enough.”
If you were in the Apple store when a robbery took place, would that make you an iWitness?
My laptop was driving me crazy. “The A, E, and I keys keep sticking,” I complained to a friend. She quickly diagnosed the problem, “Your computer is suffering from irritable vowel syndrome.”
Last week I walked down a street where the houses were numbered 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, 16gb. It was a trip down memory lane.
