No, it will not be viewed as a failure,
You misunderstand what I describe as a failure, and that will be their app store. The OS itself won't be, the store itself will be. I'll hazard a guess because apple is entrenched, but android is heavily eroding it with the whole "open concept" stuff.

]See above. Just because they haven't come under much scrutiny yet that doesn't mean they shouldn't. The EU was in the process of investigating Apple with regards to iTunes' DRM restrictions, unless Apple dropped it altogether.
And yet they haven't, and in turn other companies are emulating said behavior because regulators aren't regulating. Apples DRM restrictions though aren't the same thing as the app store that Apple runs, Google runs, or now that MS runs either. Though there appears to be more competition in terms of apps, and 'who can run what and where'.

I'd be incredibly surprised if Microsoft didn't come under regulatory scrutiny, as the requirement to use the Windows Store to distribute WinRT apps is fundamentally anti-competitive. I honestly don't understand why Microsoft thinks it can get away with it.
So, has apple come under regulatory scrutiny yet?

I wonder if they've ever written any apps for which go into apples "walled garden" and if they feel the same way. Or if it's only MS that they have this problem with. Personally I have no problem with certification as long as it's either free, or comes out of the cost of the product sold(3% should be more than enough). But MS seems to be taking the DLsite.com(nsfw) approach which is 40-50%. With friends that publish their games on dlsite, that margin is steep.

Though MS is going to realize that this is a failure, even Google is implementing a check system for their app store. But at least you can sideload without going through them if you want.

I'll probably get their last two DLC once it hits 75% off. I got the entire pack on sale for $9.99 so it really doesn't owe me anything and I've had a blast playing them. And since I didn't own tropico 3, this is fun enough.

. It would be great to go back to AMD processors but they just don't cut it for top-tier gaming any more.
You should look at the piledriver(especially the 8350 vishera's) benches especially with some of the new optimizations around. They're at, equal or beat the I7, in other cases under perform by just abit and you're paying $150 less for the chip.

My previous rig before my 965x4BE was a dualcore intel, I'm looking at building a new rig soonish and I'll probably be sticking with AMD. Though even with that, I'm still arguing as to whether or not to upgrade at all, this current rig is still chugging along fine nearly 3 years later and I'm still not seeing serious problems with gaming. I might just wait 9mo for the prices to bottom out and pick up some of the stuff cheap.

Yeah in Canada, you just toss the loonies($1) and toonies($2) coins within the first 24" of the stage and those goto her. We haven't had a bill smaller than a $5 here for almost 15 years.

Before I played it I thought the reaction was ridiculous but wow, they really did stuff that up so badly.
They patched it, it's better. But it's still in fuck you territory.

I am happy that ARM based chips are doing well and providing a competitive marketplace. On the other hand, the chance that ARMS will be in gaming computers any time soon is a pipe dream. Intel has pushed AMD almost out of the marketplace and is also making strides in energy efficiency. I am not a big Intel fan, but it has to be obvious to anyone the huge lead they have in processing power.
Really, Intel is more energy efficient per watt than ARM chips are at workload. The only place where ARM beats Intel is at idle, where both Intel and AMD are catching up very quickly. Some stuff here and here on it.

I don't see ARM for a gaming based PC anytime soon, it's kind of like cyrix chips back in the 90's, they were for everyone who wanted a simple PC on the cheap.

As incorrect as it is, "I could care less" is an acceptable American colloquialism. It drives English majors crazy but they'll tell you the same thing.
A english professor I had, had an interesting statement on the entire thing. "Don't worry, your average english major is 100 to 200 years behind the times on english. Everything will drive them crazy, and the world will be a better place for it."

Well it sure as hell isn't working for Europe.
Europe's plan for Austerity. Cut spending by 0.3%, increase spending by 15% yep how's that work? Not very well. That's exactly what they did in Greece and Spain.

Oddly, printing money can help get out of debt. Like you said, it devalues your currency, which means your debt obligations are lower since the debt is now worth less.
Didn't work very well for Zimbabwe either. Or most countries that have an appended "new" to their currency name, Israel being one of the few who's managed to properly fix their currency values.

No it hasn't. Trickle-up economics is what works. If people don't have a disposable income they don't buy anything and it all grinds to a halt. We've cut spending but it's hardly an austerity budget as we're still spending. That and solid regulation is what helped us stave off the disaster the US has seen. Oh yeah, and that regulation that saved our asses was what the PC were trying to gut so we could have more of American style banking system. Thankfully with their then minority they couldn't get it done or we really would be up shit creek right now. How the hell do you think FDR got the US out of the depression? The New Deal didn't just happen magically.
Sure, but here's the thing. The US like Europe are in liquidity traps. Neither the US or Europe have actually cut spending to any manageable level. What you've done is kept spending or actually increased spending, while trimming off the friday night fast food fries from the meal. Then after feeling good from scarfing down the triple decker mc suck burger you went out and bought a $2500 plasma TV. And on saturday, you paid for that TV by shifting your debt across three different credit cards.

FDR didn't get the US out of depression, he lengthened it. WWII got the US out of the depression. Any economist who is actually worth their salt and doesn't suck at the tit of Keynes will tell you the same thing. Keynes has done more damage to the financial system of the last 100 years than anyone else. Before that depressions and recessions were shorter, and harder. There's no shortage of papers on this view either written by Austrian economists.
