How many posts until someone finds a way to still hate on him, despite the fact that he's done more for the poor than all of us put together?
How many Apple fans will make fun of him, in spite of the fact that Steve Jobs never gave a dime to charity?
How many of you will take a potshot at Microsoft, even though Bill hasn't worked there in years?
He stepped down as chairman of Microsoft in February 2014, taking on a new post as technology advisor to support newly appointed CEO Satya Nadella.
Board member of: Microsoft, Berkshire Hathaway
He still works at Microsoft and the rest of your post is absurd. I believe the correct response here is to mark this post "troll".
But they are going to have to do a next generation of car, which is smaller and with new types of batteries that give a range of two to three hundred miles. And until they do that, it's going to remain a fringe brand.
So he isn't bashing them. If anything he is predicting how they could become very successful.
At least in California you can store your gun however you want *unless* you have reason to believe there will be children in your home. In which case if they get a hold of the gun and hurt someone you are responsible if you didn't have the gun locked somehow. This is one of the few reasonable California gun laws. There is so much backlash about any gun restrictions because lawmakers are constantly proposing stupid gun laws. Like the repeated attempts in California to make it difficult to get ammo and to track every ammo purchase. As if someone is going to walk into a school with 10K rounds in his backpack. To non gun owners: ammo is extremely heavy. Most people planning a killing spree aren't going to drag around a cart with 10K rounds. Tracking ammo purchases will just tell you who goes out shooting a lot.
The idea for this type of gun lock is not new. The fear is that once the technology is there it eventually becomes mandatory. See all the mess over microstamping. And most gun owners don't want to deal with the extra electronics for a safety device they don't need.
I have the Asus Transformer Prime 201 with the Tegra 3 and it is/was a pretty damn good CPU. The tablet is still quite useful despite being a few years old. I skipped the Tegra 4s and have been waiting for K1 powered tablets. I do a fair bit of gaming on my tablet and I can't wait to see what developers do with the K1.
Then I assume you know NVIDIA just came out with their K1-powered SHIELD tablet that is focused on gaming and also has a decent stylus. 8 inches, 16GB wifi only version is $300. It's the first tablet to check all of the boxes for me so I ordered one last week (though it's still not here).
I dunno, but letting humans decide where an autonomous vehicle should go, might still be a recipe for unsafe operation...
The first thing that popped into my head after reading this was an image of an old person in New York telling their car to take them to Vegas. And the car locking them in until it arrives at its destination.
I think this sounds like an awesome idea.
With the Wii they realized they couldn't keep up with the PS and Xbox.
No, with the Wii they realized they didn't need to keep up with the PS and Xbox. They created a new type of gaming market and made billions because of it. They are arguably competing against the mobile phone, not the Xbox or Playstation.
They didn't need to at the time, no. They had the motion sensor which was a novel new idea and got a lot of people who had no interest in consoles to buy a Wii. But that wore off fast and those people lost interest years ago. They went for that market because Microsoft and Sony were spending a ton of money making more powerful consoles and selling them at a loss and Nintendo knew they couldn't stay in that game. The console gamers, the ones who buy consoles every generation, are clearly less interested in Nintendo's offerings than the PS or Xbox. And everyone else has no reason to buy a console when their phone/tablet/computer works well enough. If they made a phone or tablet OS the majority of the market wouldn't care and as we're seeing here they aren't having success competing with the other console makers. Sony and Microsoft don't need to make money from their gaming divisions because they have other products that make money. Nintendo doesn't have this luxury so they are at a disadvantage. Thus, they should really consider trying to reach a wider audience by focusing on just the games than trying to control the entire stack. If they have another breakthrough idea it might be smarter to integrate it with Steam Box or something and make a deal with Valve. Then they can capture the PC market as well. Maybe I'm wrong and they'll come up with an amazing console for their next generation, but I think it's much more likely that they will change strategy.
