... and your repeatedly discredited, disproved autism-vaccine crap. Though I should blame the idiots who actually listen to a plastic bimbo like you for medical advice, I still hold you accountable in large part. People have DIED because of you, b*tch.
... shouldn't be long now.
... the power of poutine !!!
I'm so fucking sick and tired of selfish, narcissistic assholes risking everyone else's lives for whatever stupid text etc they HAVE to type/reply to. (I don't care if they kill themselves honestly, just don't take anyone else out with you).
Just last week, a busy intersection that I drive through every day to take my young daughter to and from school, had its second fatality in a few weeks. BOTH times, texting or cell phone usage was involved, both drivers completely blew through the red and t-boned some innocent person. Of course in both cases, the ahole who caused the accident didn't die.
They need to make the penalty on par with DUIs, suspension and/or loss of driving privileges and even jail time. Enough is fucking enough...
IF they were a good business, I'd be sorry for their loss. But they f*cked the independent mom and pop shops over, then when they got their monopoly, charged ridiculous prices, bs late fees, tons of hidden costs, and carried crap (100 copies of the latest blockbusters and hardly anything alternative, non-mainstream, european or asian, etc).
The way they treated their customers, people were begging for an alternative, and once they came -- people ran as fast as they could.
They had it coming...
For all the fun, interesting, likable mom and pop shops that places like BB drove out of business I say --- karma baby, karma.
I watch with the same glee as Barnes & Noble (Burns Ignoble) struggles, they killed the independent bookstore, and now Amazon et. al is killing them.
Nope, not just you.
We just have our cable box, use the DVR a lot (or our DVD/blu-ray player). We don't watch that much tv/movies, so it's fine. We gave up Netflix a while back, weren't using it much and since I was a DVD exclusive user, their changes didn't work for me, by the time that changed some stuff back, we were done with them.
Don't have my PC/laptop/tablet hooked up to my TV either. I occasionally watch some streaming stuff on my PC, but that's it.
And I am by no means a technophobe, been in software for 15 yrs, some tech just doesn't appeal to me, either usefulness or cost-benefit. But then again, maybe I am a dinosaur, I never had a Twitter account, to me it's a utter waste of time.
To me, the biggest (and worst) difference for this girl over what most of us went through is social media. I, like many others here posted, had a totally shitty middle school experience -- I'll spare the details, but let's just say it was a nightmare. Anyway, when school ended at 3 or so, I could go at least go home, and for a little while anyway, there was a reprieve -- maybe just enough for me to regain enough strength to face school again the next day. And then there was the weekend, 2 days without having to deal with it.
With the advent of texting, FB, twitter, instagram, etc -- there is no escaping. I could see this kind of thing being a 24 - 7 assault of sorts, no rests, no breaks. That's a helluva lot for a 12 year old to handle. And even if your child isn't on any social media, 'they' are still talking and teasing her/him, and will still get back to them eventually.
Kids can be brutally, mercilessly mean at that age, not having (or not perceiving) a way out of it would be a living hell for some.
Don't confuse the iZombies and MS knee-jerk haters with facts or information... they don't like that. Seriously I wish CmdrTaco was still here, there used to be some editorial objectivity back in the day. Now it's just 'post any MS article for automatic mod ups' .
because every time anything is posted about MS, it's just an echo chamber here, umpteen useless uninformative posts about how evil, bad, etc MS is (and usually how awesome Apple is). I don't even know why
Too bad Michael Crichton isn't still around, he'd love it - reminds me of his book "Prey" (I know, the subject's been covered by many other authors, but I like they way he wrote about tech)
Not surprisingly, things didn't end well for many people in that novel... not well at all.
Good catch, nice to way to sensationalize a non-story. Editors should have looked at the article, since it says 3 of 20 in the very first line of the story.
people would be singing its praises and talking about how totally amazing it is, but since it's MS... well, we can't do that now, can we
I wish they wouldn't even allow ACs on here. I ignore anything they post, they're just trolls 99% of the time... and bad ones at that.
"Seriously, you are going to use a 10.6 inch screen as your development device?" In short, yes.
