Comment: Please forget history (Score 2) 141 141

My question is at what point does the right to be forgotten interfere with the need for historical record. For example, the British asking Google to forget about that wholeb Boston Tea Party thing which made them look bad. Sure this is not about an individual, but where is that line drawn?

Comment: Targets okay, but method usually vague (Score 1) 242 242

The issue I generally have with governments defining targets to meet, is that they rarely have an indication of how they plan to achieve these goals. Plucking an election pleasing number is fine, but without a real method it is just meaningless marketing.

Is anyone aware of any document or site that indicates how various countries are planning to meet their targets?

Comment: who are the quality PC makers? (Score 4, Insightful) 288 288

Just curious who the reasonably priced, quality PC makers are and how they compare to Apple? Also, consider after sales service.

All those that come to mind are at the same price point and quality as Apple. Actually, I can only count one: Lenovo.

I am not saying you are wrong (I am not saying you are right either), I am just saying I need something to put things into context.

Comment: Contact website owners (Score 1) 98 98

For any of my favourite sites that I see using Flash for video or audio, I feedback to them asking when they are moving to the HTML5 tags. If more people did that, maybe they would get the message?

With the HTML5 video & audio tags, in addition to the WebAudio API, there is less and less reason to use Flash. Certainly there are obscure uses for Flash, but maybe obscure enough that not all of us will miss the plugin.

Work smarter, not harder, and be careful of your speling.
