is unusable because it's filled with Mark's stuff, regardless of how great a guy he is, or how much mentoring he does.
It still sounds like you are jumping to conclusions; what if he pays a monthly fee for that much space? They have a membership level that provides you with your very own workbench. They also have membership levels that provide you with shared workspaces and lockers (this was before they moved to their larger location; I'm assuming it is the same). If you still think that is unfair then it does not matter, anyways--you are obviously not a Texan (yes, I am fully aware I just made a logical fallacy--it was a joke).
And don't get me wrong, BT generally "just works" and I do love it and this is only a small hiccup, but my problems are when I have a bluetooth device (okay, my headphones) and am working near multiple other devices that have all been paired together in the past. I have to carefully turn on devices or the BT radios in the order that I need them to connect or otherwise it is seemingly random which audio source will be sent to my headphones (probably has to do with polling intervals). This can range from annoying, where I have to turn off bluetooth on several laptops, so that my phone will pair instead, to problematic, where I have been forced to to "forget" devices just to get them to work with another device (e.g. in my car where I cannot easily turn off the BT radio).
I think my problem would be solved with a "soft-pair" option where I did not need to re-make my device discoverable, re-search for devices, re-authenticate a password, but instead just give me a simple prompt asking for confirmation before re-connecting to a device.
The UK has never had a tradition of putting technically minded people into parliament.
This reminds me of one of our congressmen who thought that overpopulating an island would make it tip over.
As for the bluetooth problems here, I have no idea why people have so much trouble
One problem for me is that most bluetooth devices assume that you only ever pair with one other device. I swear sometimes that bluetooth acts like a jealous ex-girlfriend (e.g. interferes with other connections, refuses to talk, hooks up with past devices, etc)
and it's still not extremely common that their videos are available in high definition.
I find this to be exactly opposite, now. Maybe not for the Top 10 Boobs in Video Games videos or anything relatively old, but I find that every single regularly uploading Youtube Channel now offers at the very least 720p.
I think that mobile devices help them to gain that #1 spot (I would imagine more people watch 4 minute videos on their phones than full length movies and shows). Also think about videos that have gone viral that everybody has to see. Also think about the number of sites that embed Youtube videos into their own content. Think about all of the companies now using Youtube as the CDN of their own marketing materials. Also do not forget the reports of ISPs blocking other providers from doing the same thing as google; possibly because it competes with their OnDemand offerings (Comcast and Netflix).
The killer feature for me is alt-tabbing or resizing my way back into a full computer experience--all without interrupting playback (I'm usually doing something else while watching tv or netflix, so my priorities might be different).
Being able to quickly click on things is often FAR, FAR worse on a touch display.
I disagree. Following 3 hyperlinks in a row that you know where they will be is much easier with a touch screen than having to move the pointer (the specific example I am thinking of has the hyperlinks on opposite sides of the screen, so it is moving the pointer back and forth--even with the most sensitive trackpad settings (I like a 50% swipe to traverse the whole screen) I am faster with the touchscreen.
I'm not a complete apologist and honestly did not see any value before I got one (it wasn't the selling point and still would not be), but I have to say I was surprised to find myself trying to swipe and tap the screen on my work laptop that does not have it, within just a week or two of getting the other.
I guess you did say "often", but then I disagree with the "FAR, FAR worse" qualifier--they are just different. For example with a touch screen you do not need to know where the cursor is currently pointing. Dragging stuff, a cursor wins out because you do not have to drag it the actual distance of the screen. Scrolling I find exactly the same: either a couple inches forward with one hand to swipe the screen or a couple back to swipe the touchpad.
Name one successful app that Apple has cloned after it's become popular.
This is more analogous to walking into a car dealership, them telling the customers something they refuse to change
Yes, those adhesive advertisements they put on the back of the vehicle that ruins the paint.
Didn't they do the something like that during prohibition
They still do exactly this with the practice of denaturing alcohol and also by adding heptatotoxins to opiate medications.
It's crap like this that makes me wonder if things would have just been better if we paid the damn 3 penny tax on tea.
We have already nearly brought back writs of assistance, given the scope of these latest FBI warrants that have come to light.
