comment Is it possible to uninstall or disable iTunes in OS X?
I know this is old... But there's also the iTunes helper app. Go to System Preferences => Users and Groups, look in Login Items, see if you have iTunes Helper there. Remove it if it is.

comment How to escape “!” and “&” in docker's environment varibles
Have you tried with single quotes? Since you don't have any variables to interpolate, you can get away with single quotes here.

@user16973 that's a whole other flame war :) I'm sure you'll find people on both sides of the debate. I'm not going to answer but you easily can find lots of others who will

@ramhound another tidbit - AMD came out with the 64 bit extensions first. Intel was still trying to shovel Itanium to people who didn't want them. Intel then backtracked again and released 64 bit x86, of course changing the name from AMD64 to the (less elegant) EM64T. How could they do this blatant copy? That license agreement. What saved AMD before is the same that allows Intel to clone ideas and then beat them with better manufacturing skill.

@user16973 Odd I hadn't noticed - my recent computer is i5 and not badged as a Pentium. It seems that some retailers still call their Core series Pentiums‌​. For me this sounds old, but maybe they think there's more oomph in Pentium over Core. In this case Pentium means Pentium series, in effect indicating Intel x86. In this case it is pure marketing, no indication of rank. These are obviously post-4 processors
