It's evening. When will people (Americans?) finally grok that internet is international, and that the country they live in is just one of many countries...
Didn't they just got their legs run off?
"Computer Science or Engineering". When do programmer boys -also the "professor" ones forever walking the halls of "computer science" "universities" finally get it:
Your text is misleading; the difference is only between worse and better craftsmen.
If we got articles like this every time some very slow mind discovered some very basic functionality in some very basic software,
Hummm, who actually wants this? I mean "Microsoft", "Metro"
There's probably many more angles to reply to this. Naming just a few:
One thing would be the
Another point: the rules are outdated with repsect to information we give to companies: a) Much information we actually don't
Another: (Extension of above) We don't simply "willingly" share; we are coerced into giving up this data, it's just that not all people see it as clearly as that (even so many do, and many more would if explained and explicitly asked), and even fewer are vocal about it. But it's still the case. So the question posed by this government is actually flawed to begin with.
Aha, a karma whore. Well, I might be mentally retarded in your view, but that mostly just gives good insight on your own mental capacities
You are probably too young and unexperienced to have seen the fallout of the first ten years of centralised computing on Windows platforms, it was hell, outright hell.
Properly implemented centralised computing can be good for a few scenarios, like the one you mentioned. Problem is that Citrix has taken around 10 years to come anywhere close to maturity, but has been forced long before that already upon troves of unsuspecting and understandably unwilling clients. Further it really is outright unfit for quite a number of use cases. And finally, maybe most importantly though rarely touched upon, is that to properly manage (not technically, but "IT manage") such an environment, really big changes have to be made in IT departments, which rarely happened. And still rarely happens.
Maybe things have dramatically changed in the last few years, but at least until a few years ago, SuckTricks was indeed, as you say so colourfully, "shit".
Let's hope this starts the downfall of all Centralised Desktop Terror Computing (CDTC, t/m); too many people have been forced into utter frustration and unproductiveness for far too long already by SuckTricks and like products.
That sounds pretty final to me
"Imperial: Bringing down rockets, satellites and planetary orbiters since 1957".
It's retarded morons like you that can bring a whole country to standstill. If you're not willing to improve becuase you see no benefit, you're voting for regression, becausae other WILL improve. And you will fall victim to those others who do
And especially the "ehance your [own] life" argument is really often-stated, but nonetheless really, Really, REALLY dumb. "Mhooo; I see no enhancement in my own limited 1 foot [sic] range of sight, so it must be worthless".
... and labels are superior to folders (objectively so--they do the same thing as folders, only with an added feature)...
You are a fool. Probably a developer or so.
Labels are not superior to folders. Yes technically they offer more possibilities than folders. No that's not necessarily a good thing.
Having a predefined structure that you thought about, that is always visualised, and which fits for you to place all your mail in, is far better usabilty than being forced to attach zero, one, up to infinite criteria to each mail each time you receive one; It costs more time, your set of criteria will grow to infinity over time, you will get double labels meaning the same, you will not label emails in the same class with the same labels over time. In the end you are left with a bizarre pile of puke that has become usable only by searching it. And for searching a pile of puke you do not need labels.
Labels are very much inferior to folders.
And by the way, dargging in gmail sucks mightily, just like any other functionality. Both Yahoo mail and even Live Mail (sic!) are enourmously better, go figure what that means
Maybe that will give them time to finally build and support a 64 bit version.
32 Bit should be the exception nowadays, but apparently they decided to drop (!) any further 64 bit effort...
Yeah, i also still play 8 bit Commodore 64 games on my computer, perfectly normal
If somebody understands that 64 bit killoff please explain to me...
During my study I thoroughly enjoyed this leisurely paced introduction to Lie groups:
This law is for music (and I believe movies) only. Not for software.
Further: There is a semi-government institution that collects the money and gives as little as possible of it to actual artists, while keeping millions with themselves and "rewarding" their directors big time.
