I prefer 4:3 over 16:10 for everything but video. It's simply better all the way around. I've tried 16:10 android tablets before and I can't fucking stand them.
It's been this way for a very long time. It's easy to tell good ice cream from crap just by checking fat content. Higher end ice creams have much higher fat and calories. They also cost more because cream is a lot more expensive than air.
Remove the word "american" and you're spot on.
lol...Apple is nothing like Microsoft and you clearly have no understanding what they were in so much trouble for in the 90's.
If the only thing VS catches are compiler errors, then it sucks and is at least 10 years behind other products like IntelliJ, which catches a crazy amount of shit and it's stuff a compiler can't catch.
You mean other than the fact that they bailed on it?
To compare the US intelligence agencies to the Stasi is not only intellectually dishonest, it's fucking stupid. Read some actual history and then come back because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about and you're insulting what the people of East Germany went through.
Actually, they still do.
One thing that's not bullshit: ApplePay is far more secure.
It's 100% fucking true.
Your conclusion that people are going to lose interest in a couple of years is completely disproved by the fact that Mac sales are up 18% year over year. They are growing in popularity. Everyone knows at this point that repair options for Apple products are limited and they seem to be ok with that. In fact, other companies are emulating this concept and are making devices that are more and more difficult to repair as time goes on.
As someone who just recently bought a SP3 and will be returning it shortly, I agree with your post wholeheartedly. The thing is just awkward in so many ways and is a terrible tablet. That said, if you want a very portable laptop that you won't actually be using on a lap but a real desk and don't mind the tiny screen, it's a good option.
When you spend more than you make, you're losing money. It's not a philosophical discussion but basic math. Now, it's possible the investments they are making now will pay off in the future but only time will tell if that's true. Regardless, the company is still crazy overvalued and some people are going to lose a lot of money investing in that stock (some already have).
Copyright isn't bad. What's bad is how it's implemented.
Programmers aren't academics. So, there's still really no reason to join the ACM for most programmers.
