WiFi is great for mobile devices, but for non-mobile devices ethernet is always better. If you can afford a Tesla, you'll definitely want gigabit ethernet to connect to your media computer in your home theater room, and also to your home server in your server closet.
Probably no more time than your approach. He should learn from his manager what he's expected to do on the job, not from coworkers.
Why did you bother with this? I would have just called and left voice mail. When he doesn't answer promptly, and this starts being a problem, I'd contact my manager by email and in person and complain that this person isn't answering his phone and he's blocking my progress. This will get him in trouble with his manager, and either he'll get a reprimand or be fired.
AOHell is stil around, but it's such a shadow of its former self that it really isn't the same thing at all. Plus there aren't many users left except a few old people that never gave up on it for some odd reason.
Because back in those days, no one considered those IM services to be valid replacements for email.
When the 20-somethings are running companies, they'll be "mature". That doesn't mean they'll agree with you on what technologies to utilize. Look at how many people think it's a great idea to use Windows 8 for corporate use.
>Yes, because whenever I look at job postings, they always say: Hit us up on the Facebookz! in the contact information section.
That's because the job postings are posted by older people who grew up in the days of email. Just wait until the 20-somethings are running companies and handling HR.
Exactly. Yes, Prodigy, Compu$erve, and AOL died out, but that's because people moved on to other stuff, which these days means Facebook and Twitter, though back then it meant internet services like email and USENET. People have basically exchanged one group of crappy closed centralized platforms for another. Facebook and Twitter will probably die out eventually too, just like MySpace has, after people move on to yet another group of crappy closed centralized platforms.
People move to the latest fad; at one time, open internet was the fad, and killed off Compu$erve and friends, but it didn't take long for MySpace and then Facebook to rise up and start displacing email as a communications medium. People don't care about open and decentralized, they only care about what's new and hip and flashy.
Best Buy and Staples do not sell Dell Latitudes, they sell the shitty consumer-grade Dells. That's like comparing Thinkpads (of 5 years ago when they were still good) to HP's cheapest model.
>You are making the assumption that his garage is connected to his house and that he has an insulated garage door.
Then he should buy one. If he can afford a $100k car, he can afford to build himself a new luxury house with an attached garage and insulated garage door, plus granite countertops, ethernet wiring, a hot tub, and a home theater room, and a few acres of land.
If he can't afford to build or buy a house with an attached garage, then he's not in the market for a Tesla.
>Dell keyboards, IMHO, have always sucked - I haven't had a single one that hasn't felt 'cheap'.
You obviously never tried the Dell Latitude E-series keyboards. My ~2008-vintage Dell E6400's keyboard is just about as good as any Thinkpad I've owned (and I've had a few).
Still, growing a 10-inch-diameter tree takes a fair amount of time. A hemp plant grows quickly, hence the moniker "weed".
Of course, there's a lot of fiber in a 10-inch tree compared to a hemp plant, and I don't have any numbers handy on the per-acre per-year yield (of usable paper) using each plant.
That's a recent development. Industrial hemp has been illegal nationwide for decades.
Have you forgotten how long it takes a tree to grow to maturity? Hemp plants are extremely fast-growing.
The legal problems with Uber seem to mostly stem from the insurance aspect. For-hire cars require a level of insurance that personal vehicles do not.
Yep, basically the only thing where we really excelled was in communications technology. People in the 50s barely imagined the level of communications we have today.
Everything else has been underwhelming.
