You can see why this place is on my short list of countries I might want to emigrate to when it comes down to whether or not  I leave Canada for a number of reasons (not least of all to get away from the Unlimited

Yeah, it's not like any halfway-knowledgeable user would have ever needed another reason to not buy Apple's overpriced, thoughtfully pre-crippled garbage, but well... ...Well, now they've gone and given us one, anyway. Ummm...Thanks for that? I guess?

The usual official apology, in the craven, sweating hope that they don't get sued. Which they absolutely still should be. Like I said before, I'm not normally one to favour litigation as the go-to for legitimate redress --that way lies the cesspit of America-- but these things exist

Perhaps it takes a Brit's satirical vision of America to inform us what the blatant confidence scam known as the "American DreamTM" really is, nu? Like all the best satire/black comedy, this is both hilarious, and profoundly sad.

This could easily have become me, were I not cursed with just a bit too much self-awareness and introversion for my own good. Thank Dog, it's less and less likely as I age, given that those selfsame two qualities continue to harden into through-and-through misanthropy, an

We hardly knew ye. The real Canada died at the hands of the detestable quisling Brian Mulroney, and thanks to the vapid junior Trudeau --clearly not his father's son in any way that matters-- the Balkanisation continues. Well, it's not polite to make too m

Yep. I have officially lost my last tenuous connections to my leftist ideals. Whatever, they were just taking up space and whinging anyway. Hey, that's like what SJWs do, innit. Score one for consistency! Proof: My admittedly rather less-than-measured reaction/comment on this
