Amazon created and dominated the cloud as we know it before Microsoft even knew it existed. To this day, Microsoft's prices on Azure are about twice that of AWS, and Microsoft doesn't have a prayer in taking that market. All Microsoft has ever done is a half-assed attempt to buy their way into yet-another-market. If Amazon wasn't so laser focused on defining what the cloud means and pouring in R&D dollars, sure they could make a little more money. If Amazon wasn't pushing boundaries like same-day delivery, sure they could make a little more money. Put another way, if Ballmer wasn't so focused on making a little more money, and could be laser focused on R&D and pushing boundaries, maybe he could dominate a market like Amazon - but he left that post years ago.

Oops! Shame on Duke's IT people for going public with hastily drawn conclusion and blaming Apple for "one-way communication"."Duke University is taking a softer stance on the cause of its wireless networking problems on Friday. Earlier in the week Duke administrators put the blame squarely on Apple's iPhone, but a report due today from the university may exonerate the iPhone. "We are presently looking into it and we have not been able to conclusively pinpoint where the problem is," said Julian Lombardi, assistant vice president of academic services technology support for Duke University. "We hope to have a resolution in the next few hours."
Until that happens, I'll confine myself to threadpools and a worker thread.
Only a culture that is self-absorbed with self-absorption would think that an activity whose primary purpose is to be seen actually is an important thing. Described that way (and the description is accurate, as far as it goes), it is difficult to see the difference between a political demonstration and a Hollywood movie. But I'm sure not going to base my policy opinions on which demonstration hired or attracted the most protesters any more than I am going to base them on the half-thought-through philosophies advertised by Hollywood's "art." Of course we may disagree about this, but I think that my opinion is not an uncommon one or an ill-considered one, either. I hope you can at least see where I'm coming from.
It's really tough to think about how far we are inside of our own boxes. We do nothing but build them to be more and more transparent, and more and more comfy, all the while we live without knowing (or caring) how we function as humans. People never take the time to crawl out of their box and ignore for a few minutes some of the things going on around them to uphold what may turn in to a missing piece of science.
- Install Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor (TTTT) to learn Dvorak keyboard.
- Switch keyboard layout to Dvorak.

I bet you can fill in the blanks from there.
