I think the scariest API doc I ever read was the one for Word's *.doc format. The stuff Microsoft has/had to support for the sake of backward's compatibility was simply astounding.
You had me at Bacon...
Honestly, from reading the translated article, I get the feeling that a lot of the issues were because other agencies outside of Munich had difficulty interacting with them and this translated into Munich user unhappiness.
...seriously, why wouldn't they?
It is charmingly naive to think that morality/ethics would prevent a CEO (in ANY country) from doing whatever they thought would generate them the most money with the smallest risk...
That doesn't mean it's good enough, but having 20% female tech workers? That's great compared to my experience in the industry.
It was 4 years into my career before I met my first female software engineer at work, and there were two out of 80. This was the valley back in the 90's though.
Why did someone mark this as troll when it's clear I'm simply saying that Microsoft treats the Surface as a "loss leader" in business market?
FFS people, get over yourselves. I don't care what OS you use or whose latest 'shiny thing' you want to buy. They're all tools in the toolbox as far as I'm concerned.
They both want profits and revenue, they just look to different markets to do it. (There is, of course, overlap.)
Apple is all about the consumer space, and very little about business.
Microsoft is all about the business space, and very little about the consumer except in the console space (and the way the XBox One is going, that may not be for long anyhow...)
I'll be honest, I didn't expect much from the initial Surface and so I wasn't disappointed. The Surface 2 I thought was a mistake. The Surface 3 Pro that I used a few months ago - is pretty freaking awesome.
While Apple is pushing the consumer entertainment perspective of devices, Microsoft is going to lead the way to the PC/tablet/phone convergence in the work place. Yet again, they will succeed through Exchange and Office.
The irony being that Microsoft doesn't mind making money in the tablet space, but they really don't care about that. They care about ensuring that in 2018, whatever Phablet your company supplies you with (or requires you to buy to work there) is running MS Office 2018 and connecting to Exchange Server 2018...
Don't be such an arsoe...
...that's pretty effin' amazing. From video, 15 feet away. Not using a laser, FROM VIDEO! Lol.
I certainly understand the sentiment, but multi-path just changes the chokepoints.
Seriously, the second somebody proposed this it should have been (and surely was) clear what the authentication and security implications were. This doesn't mean multi-path is a bad thing, it just means it will likely be used in the appropriate places as opposed to 'everywhere in the tubes.'
