This is just a thought. But it might be nice to have some sort of easter egg message in here for the hard core Apple fans that will stop the video.

The binary encoded message reads:
> So you took the time to translate this? We love you.
Slightly undeserved jab, the article is short and to the point, with very little introduction.
Gnome Totem video player, at least last time I tried, could play a video with audio backward after pressing the comma key, it's an hidden feature as it wasn't mentioned in its keyboard shortcut page...
What then is the 'best selling PC'?
They usually have the cheapest components, slow eMMC as storage and no HDD or SSD, and come with the locked down version of Windows 10 S where you have to use IE, Bing, and can’t install apps outside of the windows store.
I believe Microsoft actually pays OEMs for the S version, instead charging.
Technical users can opt out of S but it’s not obvious and I think comes with warning signs that mislead average Joes think their warranty will be void if they do that.
Not sure what exactly it is - on Amazon the best seller is the Acer Aspire 5.
What a broken metric. But yeah, it's hard to keep up with those superlative narration if you broaden your metrics.
Given the non techie audience of our app and blog, nobody detected the hidden message, much less decoded it in the 12 months we had them up there. We've since changed the header graphic style to something completely different.
I had no idea she knew how to do that, much less do so in freeking real time.
I didn't translate it real time tho, man ascii and a couple of minutes... ^__^;
So I printed out "01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01100001 01110010 01100101 00100000 01100001 00100000 01100100 01101111 01110010 01101011". It took slightly longer than I recalled, but she read it again pretty much right away (and also responded asking if this was news to anyone).
I think this just goes into the totally useless superpowers category.
Instead, for me, that apple video is a good match for the middle section i.e. breathless human industry and I think it is sorely missing the end sequence to reveal that this industriousness has forgotten something important. It is empty, futile and ignorant and will return to dust.
You know Apple is a cult when they bring up the BSoD which doesn't exist for 4 years now.
Now you get the Sad Face of Death.
I'd imagine in 2019 they'd at least have no camera bump like the revolutionary iPhone 4/5 design? I love my SE for that reason primarily (not to mention form factor).
(I'm assuming here that he couldn't magic the camera cluster thinner with his reality distortion field)
1. Modern camera
2. No camera bump
3. Thin phone
Pick two. Or else, what would be the solution?
