You never know what you can accomplish until you try, believe, know, fail, then succeed and rinse and repeat - the RDF can push you over the top because preconceived boundaries are pushed away and magic and the "impossible" can happen.

I was thinking along the same lines—I believe. The RDF is like a lens; it can make things look larger than they are. This is how most people view the RDF—reality only appears to be different. But a lens can also be used to light a fire, which can make a cold night more endurable. In the second example reality is changed and the world is a better place. Steve Jobs used the RDF in the second sense. And sometimes, of course in the first. ;-)

Nowhere in the entire post do you even mention that Tim Cook is not Steve Jobs. I'm certain that this was just an oversight, but it is compulsory that every post on the internet until further notice compares Tim Cook to the late Steve Jobs. It doesn't matter what the subject matter of the post is – bicycle parts, rocket thrust-to-weight ratios, the relationship between GMOs and flatulence – you must at least acknowledge that Tim Cook is not Steve Jobs.
The pundit police will be paying you a visit.

PS: if you wonder how Samsung manages to sell so many more phones than Apple, while booking so much less in earnings, you have only to look at their low-end line to realize that these phones are nowhere in the same ballpark.

Given its history, Macalope, that's even more impressive than skewering pundits. Kudos and Thanks! You are truly a bio-electronic Chimera of All Seasons.
