“Yes, but it can't be seen in Itunes, at least not without fumbling for my reading glasses. If by "home" you mean the interface with the apps you are right. I may have used an improper term. When you turn on the phone you get the screen with the large time showing prior to unlocking. Prior to 0S7 you could get back to that screen via the on/off button by simply turning off the phone, regardless of what app you are in. Now when you turn it off and back on in Itunes it keeps going back to itunes. I am sure there is a solution, but why did they create the problem. Same with the fonts. Why did they change so they had to be changed back by some arcane work around, or whatever. They make these changes not to improve the product, but for the sake of change itself. Because they can't think of anything truly innovative.”
“I would give up all of these "nifty" features if I could have back all of the the features that Apple "fixed" that were never broken in the first place. For instance, is it asking too much just to be able to get the home screen up with one push of a button so I can see what time it is without turning off itunes?
And why on earth would you use fonts that are so thin and grey that they are impossible to read in daylight? WHY!!!
I have already destroyed my 5s by throwing it against the wall in the middle of the night when my patience was maxed out. it will cost 39 dollars to replace it but it was worth the stress relief.
Apple's days as a technologically innovative company died with Jobs. The downfall was swift.”

Thank you! That is exactly what I hate about it!!! I can NOT see that print! Thin and grey against a light background!!”

“Apple's iOS 7 has absolutely fabulous features for accessibility for people with disabilities from blindness to deafness to autism. Try and get a Blackberry or an Android or something from Samsung to do that. My 92 year old mom uses an iPad to "facetime" with us and all she has to do is say, "Siri, facetime Maggie." I can read her prescription bottles for her when she holds her screen up to the bottle. I can see if she needs to see a doctor. I can change the font size so that she can read emails and texts.”

“You obviously did not go into settings to customize your iPhone the way you want it to be. You threw your phone at the wall? Seriously? Sorry you have such a hot temper...”

“If you really do own an iPhone, try using some patience and take the time to adjust the settings on your iPhone to customize it to the way you prefer and you can eliminate the problems you mention without having to destroy things or wake the neighbors in the middle of the night.
You will not be able to appreciate innovation if you are too impatient to recognize and understand it. Apples fortunes and customer base continues to expand to a degree that would likely make Steve Jobs proud. 2014 should see some awesome Apple product launches that will advance the high tech industry in ways that most people can't yet imagine.”

“Even if your story is true, do you think your wildly impatient, violent and destructive habits would change if you owned a Samsung phone?
Oh, by the way, considering your track record of wildly destructive impatience, you might be interested to know that IPhone touch screens operate considerably faster than those of all competing phones.”

“The time on my device is displayed at the top while iTunes is playing. When I press the home button, I get to the home screen. You can change the font to bold and large in Settings. Hope this helps.”
“OS 7 is a milestone for Apple. It is the product that marks the beginning of the end of their brand as the cool, design-oriented, innovative company. Jobs has only been gone for less than a year and they are already coming out with this clunky Android imitation, to say nothing of Imaps.
Hey Apple, you aren't going to take away market share from Android by providing a crappier version of their product. Somebody needs to get out an Ouija Board and contact Jobs to get some fresh ideas.”

“I totally agree with you. I have been doing intermittent fasting for years and I have below average blood pressure, low cholesterol and body fat around 10%.
What you are saying is correct. It is not that not eating breakfast "causes" anything, except perhaps, good health, presuming you are doing it in the context of timing your eating properly, not eating for an hour or two before bed, balancing your macronutrients and getting plenty of exercise. Most people who don't eat breakfast are not adhering to such healthy habits.
If they are obese, suffer from heart disease or have diabetes it is because they are pigging out on carbs and flipping channels from the couch in the evening instead of doing some pushups and going for a walk.
I really get frustrated with articles like this. Who are these Harvard experts propagating this irresponsible propaganda?”
“What could you possibly find outdated about keeping commercial and investment banking separate? Of course banks need to be required to increase capital ratios. They also need to not be able to play casino royale with people's money. That this isn't patently obvious to you is astonishing. It is obvious to Barney Frank too, but he gets paid for it not to be obvious to him, so he chooses to have it not be so. I assume you are not a bought politician so what is your excuse?”

“First off, Frank isn't a bought politician, he's retired, Warren is the bought politician if there is one in this. Everything that went wrong during the recent crisis involved banking activities that were permissible to banks during the existence of Glass-Steagall. Guess what, banks were able to hold mortgages or securities backed by mortgages before the repeal of Glass-Steagall and other investment bank type activities were a positive to their earning while the pre-repeal activities caused earnings to tank.”
“It's very simple. Power happens. Power structures grow, as government, by government sanction, or minus government, by whatever surreptitious means available. Government is a necessary evil, given the nefarious propensities of human beings. Government didn't create corporations. That is a very simplistic point of view.
There are NO ideal solutions. No type of government "works". Nor does not having government "work". Thomas Hobbes was the first to distinguish the need to give up certain liberties if we are to come in from the wild and be civilized. Human beings tend to behave badly. I'm sure you've noticed.
What annoys me are people who conjure up stupid, simplistic, bone headed, non-workable solutions as if everything hadn't already been tried and shown to be inadequate. There is nothing new under the sun, and nothing "works", because human beings are essentially selfish. This may sound pessimistic, but it is hard to deny. ”
“Yeah, lets try that. That's a great idea. Let's let the corporate power structures do whatever they want and lie and steal and brainwash the public with their constant advertising. Let's let them dump their waste in the oceans and rivers and destroy the planet and then obfuscate and lie about it so that uninformed and stupid people will buy their products anyway. You must be a real political science whiz there with that sophisticated suggestion.
It's people like you who are the problem because you don't get it, so you inadvertently become a pawn of private power. Private power is no better than public power. Power corrupts”

“what you dont understand is that corporations as you know them are government creations. they are made possible directly as a result of state power. they exist and are given their power by the government.
in a stateless system it would not be possible for these monstrous entities to exist.
they would also not be able to externalize toxic byproducts like air or water pollution by buying government approval for such actions. they would not be able to grow large enough for it to be feasible for them to dump waste into the ecosystem without being held accountable.
in your plan, the same government that allows these things to happen is the same government you want to protect us. and you dont think thats absurd?”
“"Once again you confuse CAPITALISM with CORPORATISM"
Once again YOU confuse the idea of capitalism with what always actually occurs, which is the "rent seeking" that always leads to fascistic collusion between big business and government due to the fact that private corporate power structures can always buy the favoritism they want from corrupt government representatives.
There is no such thing as an incorruptible government and there is no such thing as a non-sociopathic corporation. These two facts insure that capitalism will always ultimately fail.”

“"I like people who are willing to stand up to the government. As a reporter, it’s my job to do that from time to time. "
Yes, a job you are doing none of the time, Bob. Which is why Edward Snowden becomes a necessary "evil" to counter the truly evil and unconstitutional tactics of the government. Snowden is a hero. He divulges the truth, you voice the message that reflects the interests of fascist government/corporate collusion.”
“This article reminds me of the stories of corporations going into small third world countries and throwing their weight around to acquire the rights to destroy the indigenous economy and leaving a homogenized corporate mono-culture in its wake.
In the end, "Big Marijuana", will use its lobbying power to become part of the fascistic collusion between corporations and government that is destroying any remaining semblance of democracy.
Regardless of your stand on pot, this is not good news.”

There's no way marijuana chains will kill off any semblance of a remaining indigenous economy unless - due to prohibition - you count drug cartels an "indigenous" economy.”

“Krystal Ball is very good looking in a girl-I-knew-in-highschool kind of way. I wish her well because she seems quite intelligent when she is on the air. I hate to say it but, pictures aside, it seems like her name would be a bit of a handycap in politics, if she is trying to get people to take her seriously.
Maybe a career as a pollster would be more appropriate.”
“Such a silly argument. Jesus in a manger is just as much of a myth as Santa Claus. Whatever Christianity is, it has nothing to do with Christmas trees or Nativity scenes. Christmas trees are fun whether you believe in Jesus or not. And really, are Nativity scenes that much of a problem that anyone needs to get worked up about it?
For those who agree with either of these yokels, you get to spend Christmas in a big huff. For those who don't, you get to watch Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert make hilarious jokes out of the whole spectacle, while you enjoy the Holidays in your own way. Who would you rather be.”
