...because it had been developed on Macs. Halo was mostly finished when MS borged Bungie.
You missed the major one:
- 0 Counter negative points raised in "The Everything Store" and recent news stories about poor working conditions in Amazon warehouses. Steer the narrative about Amazon toward how they're building the shiny future instead of how they're out-Walmarting Walmart.
Not well, from what I can see. It requires buying/building hardware, and you have to remember to take the device if you want to access a stored password away from home. KeePass + Dropbox goes everywhere my phone does.

In the state with the highest electrical rates in the CONUSA 250 khw gets you a bill of less than $43/month
It gets you an energy charge of $43/month. After the base fees, distribution fees, and because-we-said-so-now-pay-up fees it's more like $70 total...
It's something else altogether, originally it was a project to put a multitasking kernel, TCP/IP stack, GUI, and web browser on a Commodore 64, and has since gone in a mesh networking internet-of-things sort of direction.
There was a Slashdot article on the original desktop-oriented release, but the links are all dead.
Under Renault's scheme, you don't own the battery, just the frame
The worst of both worlds! In 5 years, instead of a car that's hard to sell because potential buyers don't know the condition of the battery, you'll have a car that's impossible to drive or sell because the battery was returned to Renault after the lease ended.
Anyone else reading that as "US Has Radically Advanced Facial Recognition Software, Wants To Phase In Use In Unclassified Programs In 2014-2018"?
Or has my Snowden Cynicism gone too far?
If you think Obama's policies are representative of any sort of a "left", you watch way too much American TV news.
The troubleshooting steps for when my WWVB-controlled wall clock stops syncing amount to "move it to a spot near a west-facing window for 24-48 hours". I would really rather not have to do that with, say, my oven.
My example isn't "bad" just because you don't like the conclusion.
Define what "coding" means to you. There are two possible categories that definition can fall into: One so over-broad that it's meaningless but that includes nearly everyone, and one that fits what other people mean when they say "coding" but excludes a vast majority of reasonably happy competent people who hold jobs where 90% of their work day is spent using a computer.
Funny, when XP launched the Slashdot consensus was that it was 'goddamned Fischer-Price crap' for consumers who didn't care about the lack of signed drivers for (your favorite obscure ISA card here), and real big boy computers ran Linux, UNIX, or Win2k if you really needed Microsoft software.
It's really not, at least not unless you're going to expand the definition of "coding" to silly lengths that would include trivial stuff like Excel formulas. Those are mainstream job skills, proper coding is a niche skill.
Or to turn it around, if one absolutely must (FULL STOP!) know how to code to operate a computer, then operating a computer is self-evidently not a skill that everyone needs, as can be seen by the number of functioning adults who can't code "hello world" in python.
There's a lot more to "3D Television" than just a TV with a 3D capable panel in it.
How many of those people own the glasses? And a 3D blu-ray player (with the required HDMI 1.whatever cables)? And 3D discs (or if you want to get into really amazingly minuscule market share numbers, 3D cable/satellite programming)?
"Shuttleworth has neither given up nor been surpassed by another competitor in this area."
But he has been surpassed. Microsoft has already successfully foisted their clunky tablet UI on millions of desktop users who bought machines pre-loaded with Windows 8!
