Bragging rights like "First Music Video in Space" don't come around every day!
I've been working in G2 for most of the past 15 years, and this article describes the strengths of that environment, even 15 years ago. The "inspect" interface is like a troubleshooters wet dream. I don't know why something similar hasn't been in every platform for the last decade.
Ever since iOS devices started to become popular, companies have slowly retooled their sites to avoid Flash.
To say she loves it is a clear understatement. I thought she'd use it on days when she was exhausted from the chemo, or during the actual treatments, but she uses it everywhere. She doesn't use the PC I built her last year anymore.
She's especially enamored with the rouxbe.com cooking school membership - they're fully compatible with iOS safari. Works mint. And there's nothing better than a tablet in the kitchen for serving up that kind of content. Keyboards are splash attractors, and a touchscreen is trivial to clean
In my experience a tabled and a senior citizen do just fine. When it comes time to do taxes, she'll likely need her PC, but right now the tablet is the go-to device for everything.
I read your link. I see a lot of misbehaviour, but not a lot of killing - and certainly not enough to constitute "millions". For instance, "In Tsarist Russia, religion was a major source of violence and conflict between religious groups, and State Athiesm was designed to end these problems. Notable atrocities include the persecution and killing of over 200,000 Jews as "Christ-killers" due to pogroms."
So, confiscations, propaganda, suppression, sure... but please justify this claim of millions.
You've completely managed to avoid understanding any of Apple's very successful marketing. I mean, you missed the boat ENTIRELY. Talking about relative processor speeds is completely off the table. Mhz, GB, dpi - these things are absent from their marketing for a very good reason. Not even the geeks need it in the advertising. If they want it, they can look it up on the web site.
Apple's marketing is squarely focused on what you can accomplish with the device.
Linux is absolutely the most restrictive. They insist you run linux, which bars 95+% of users from participating.
First of all, the odds that a kid would shine a laser into the sky and accidentally hit an aircraft are... well, stupendously low. The laser point is incredibly tiny, and the sky is incredibly large. And the slightest movement of the hand holding the laser has huge implications at the distance where an aircraft would intersect it. If it's not trained and held on the target, it would never be noticed.
So, "no" to whatever point you're making.
Geez. "No, you're just wonderful. You don't need to retrain. Just be yourself."
If you check your played time and it's over 100 hours, maybe you should stop whining about how crappy you think it is, because clearly your bitchy brain and your gaming brain are having an argument.
Actually, the old man in me wishes the entire gaming community would benefit from a complete media blackout when it comes to video games. Then they can buy a game without expectations, enjoy it without absorbing the negative crap from other gamers, and be satisfied.
Simple. The publisher themselves often included the security that the O/S did not - things like serial numbers, key generation, and call-home authentication. Also, the market for Windows apps is vast enough that people can profit even if a small number of users pay up.
So perhaps android apps might sell more if you had to get a serial number derived from your device's unique identifier, and supplied by the software publisher... but maybe it would sell less instead.
