I don't even have to hit "winkey+L" anymore. I'm supposed to login with my Lincpass card, and when I leave my desk, I take the card out of the slot, and it locks the screen.
How sensitive is this? Will it come on if I'm watching TV and a MS ad comes on where they say "Hey Cortana"?
Yeah, the One Drive is a big disappointment. I guess I'll have to check out Google's NSA/FBI Drive.
Which is clearly better than Microsoft's One NSA/FBI/keylogged Drive.
For the most part, reading on my iPhone is adequate. I don't read on it at home, where I have an iPad and a Kindle, but it's fine away from home. I don't think I've tried reading technical books on it though.
Wear and tear. I have my phone with me all the time, and it probably falls out of my pocket several times a week. My iPad has never left the house, and I haven't dropped it once in the months I've had it, and never dropped the older iPad in the years I owned that.
I disagree. I can post on my favorite forum from my iPad, but it's much easier from my laptop. I could probably update a spreadsheet for my home budget on the iPad, but never have because it's easier on the PC. And, though the iPad is much easier to carry than a laptop, the phone is much more portable, and adequate for most of the stuff I'd use an iPad for.
The iPad IS better for quick web searches, reading (but not composing) emails, and some games, but if I had to get rid of one of my devices, the iPad would go before either the laptop or the iPhone.
My iphone fits well in my pocket. My iPad doesn't. There's no way I'm lugging a tablet around everywhere, with or without phone capability.
My iPad is more portable than a laptop, but my iPhone is much better. My iPad is better for book-reading than phone or PC, but a Kindle beats it. If I'm in a hurry, I can post to a forum or answer email on it, but my laptop is better. There are a few games that I play on the iPad, but that just puts it in the "fun toy" category.
I always thought Pascal was better for most purposes than C and its offspring. I only switched because nobody else was using it.
It's not just "doing work". To me, getting onto my favorite forum and telling someone, in great detail, why they are wrong is much easier on my PC than on a phone/tablet.
I thought it was because they didn't want their German market to say "Windows? Nein!".
The last time I googled my real name, I didn't even see my FB account. I saw several FB & Linkedin accounts with my name, but they weren't me. I did find a dumb question I asked on some mailing list, but nobody can prove that that was really me.
American voters are stupid.
American voters might, stupidly, get to choose from another-Clinton or another-Bush in the coming presidential election.
About the only good thing to say is they won't get to vote for Obama again.
At least, not until Michelle decides to run.
One of my systems at work kept rejecting my attempts to change my password. The one it finally accepted had the added bonus that I wasn't likely to give it out in mixed company.
IMO, COBOL was very readable, but no language can stop people from writing unreadable programs (and I saw lots of those). One of my gripes about the language is, it had no concept of scope; all variables were global.
