I'll do all my gaming on my PC. I listen to music on my PC. I watch TV and movies on my PC. My friends do the same. I'm 19. The PC isn't dead in anyone's eyes but those of marketers who want to sell to cheap to build tablets for the price of a fully functional PC.
If this is true, I'll buy Windows 8. Also, if MS PR reads the comments, I'm 19, and I like having a PC.
If the internet is a surveillance state, please reply to this post with my full real name, and all aliases.
You sound like a helicopter parent. You should back off your kid, and LAND.
Which drug are you referring to here? The SSRIs, which increase feelings of well being and lower inhibitions, without impacting cognition? The benzodiazepines, which are short acting and are a mild sedative without long term effects? Those are the most commonly prescribed psychoactive drugs, and comparing them to lobotomies is like comparing a piece of apple pie to a chunk of rat poison.
If you're thinking of anti-psychotics, those are quite over prescribed, but you'd be overdramatazing the point in a Godwin-like manner.
At first, I hated Windows 8 because of the "fuck desktops, you're gonna use a tablet!" interface. Now I hate it for a much bigger reason.
Metro Apps, which Microsoft refers to as "modern" and intends to replace desktop apps, are only available through Microsoft's walled Windows Store. This could put an end to, and Microsoft intends it to put an end to, both free and Free software. It's an anti-consumer powergrab.
Do you know what polemic means?
To quite a dramatic conclusion.
I'd prefer to use a 24 hour UTC clock for everything. It's a big world.
Um, no. Unless you're question is privileged(asking for confidential information about their clients "Did Joe Smith tell you if he robbed the bank?"), they aren't prohibited from answering it. Also, there is no "the Bar", each state has it's own bar association, and it does not necessarily certify lawyers. In some states this is done by the supreme court.
So, not true.
This. Lawyers are the ones who interact with judges, and who understand these issues, Ask a lawyer or look on a bar associations website.
Preventing who can't vote(felons, non-citizens, young people under 18) from assisting campaigns is not only a terrible idea, but blatantly unconstitutional. It would be struck down at the drop of a hat.
Why the fuck was this modded troll? It's an honest opinion, and I truly suspect that MS has modpoints.
