Comment Re:... and the hype for Windows 10 begins.... (Score 1) 405 405

So what you're saying is there's nothing that'll make you happy with Windows 10. If you want the gearhead features, you pay for the gearhead features. I, for one, am glad that after I upgrade my parents to Windows 10 they won't have the choice to ignore updates. Same with 95% of people out there with computers.

Why would everyone use the Pro version? If you know what a driver is, you can probably consider using the Pro version. If you don't, like my parents, then having everything automatically update seems perfectly sane, and safer than not having updates done until someone looks at the machine.

What do you mean? Every single web view on iOS uses Safari's renderer. It's against the App Store rules to have your own renderer. The problem is that sure, if you design a website around Safari it'll work everywhere else, but it's a pain in the ass to design it to a 5 year old standard when all the other major browsers support other upgrades, extensions and capabilities that can make code easier/faster/better. It's most apparent when an open standard has replaced an Apple designed one that's inferior, and Apple refuses to change, such as WebSQL/IndexedDB.

The funny thing is, Hillary is the same age as McCaine was when the Democrats were talking about how old he was and we were a heartbeat away from Palin.

I personally would have preferred Palin than Obama, at least she is patriotic. She is also pretty smart, which makes all the smear campaigns of the press pretty funny. But if you prefer a liberal, she obviously isn't the one for you.

See, you can't tip you trolling hand by calling Palin smart...
