@26: ah yes, Houston. Terrible, awful Houston. Stinky unzoned Houston with its average 2BR rental price that's 30% lower than Seattle's and median home sale price that's half of Seattle's.

God forbid Seattle lower itself to take lessons from a city in a red state that somehow managed to have a booming economy and population while remaining substantially more affordable than Seattle.

God forbid Seattle ever lower itself to take any lessons from a booming city that has somehow remained substantially more affordable than Seattle.

And this, people, is why discretionary review is a fucking farce.
Mar 9 Doctor Memory commented on So Why Are LGBT People Are Moving To Red States?.
It's the housing, stupid.

I mean yes, obviously the fact that (non-trans, ahem) queer people are now (somewhat) less likely to be violently assaulted and/or murdered outside of a few core urban areas is a factor as well. But SF, Seattle, LA and NYC are currently all being turned into gated communities / museums for the benefit of anyone who bought property there 20-40 years ago, which means that anyone without a trust fund who wants to live in an historic "gayborhood" is shit outta luck. So, yeah, Louisville is pretty cheap...

Also: take your unearned condescension and kindly pound it up your ass followed by a meter of sand. You just preserved a parking garage in a city with a housing crisis; you have nothing to be proud of. You are literally and precisely the problem, "pumpkin".

Idiot, I work in PS. And I note that you carefully avoided the question: in what way does a building that blocks off no rights of way "wall off" anyone from anything other than a view they mistakenly thought they owned?

@14 the word "wall" has many meanings, both formal and colloquial, but "residential building inside a set-back lot that blocks neither sidewalks nor streets nor any other public right-of-ways" is not generally one of them.

If you want people to believe that this is not actually about preserving the views and property values of existing homeowners, maybe try to avoid transparent bad-faith conflations like that.

BTW, Charles, you live in Seattle: a city with more than a few experts on computer security. You're a smart man on political topics but your articles on technology are generally a train wreck: would it kill you to develop a few local sources who you could run this stuff by?

Also please note that iFixit is far from a neutral party here: they are a for-profit business that makes their money from selling DIY repair kits. They are voting their own portfolio, and your security and privacy interests are of no matter to them.

So... it's a good thing if the police or your abusive ex confiscate/steal your iphone and attempt to circumvent the fingerprint scanner on it by replacing it with one that always said "yes" and the phone just says "fine"?

The obtuse error code is embarrassing for Apple, but the actual behavior is 100% correct and I would be horrified it it were anything else.
