Researchers recently announced that observations of gravitational waves provide evidence of inflation, a dramatic theory of cosmic creation. But there are so many different versions of 'inflation' theory that it can 'predict' practically any observation, meaning that it doesn't really predict anything at all. String theory suffers from the same problem. As for multiverse theories, all those hypothetical universes out there are unobservable by definition so it's hard to imagine a better reason to think we may be running out of new things to discover than the fascination of physicists with these highly speculative ideas. According to Keith Simonton of the University of California, 'the core disciplines have accumulated not so much anomalies as mere loose ends that will be tidied up one way or another.'"
Apparently the start menu is coming back, as is the ability to run all apps in windows. Live tiles on the desktop is not coming, but they run in the new start menu.
Fish is meat.
Don't forget the $100/year license paid to Apple to drive your Apple car.
The original iPad was (and still is) fabulously overpriced for what it is.
And yet, tablets as capable as the ipad for much cheaper abound. The iPad is still expensive.
And yet, the CEO of BlackBerry didn't exactly understand the cost of things, as the iphone was not the first touch-screen handheld.
And yet, Razer has created something more powerful than the MBP for less than the equivalently specced MBP. Also, Microsoft has released a piece of hardware specced like the Air, but with a high resolution display and a touchscreen, for less than the Air.
This is where "It just works" hurts you...
Portable consoles/mobiles can't handle STL? Please, give me some of what you're smoking.
> Also, they were designed for hardware architectures not relevant any more today.
Actually, that hardware is completely and still dominantly relevant in the gaming scene. Perhaps you missed the billion-dollar releases?
Insecure OS? It seems to be holding up with linux just fine at pwn2own.
MSSE is not bundled with 7. Defender (which is the same thing) is bundled in 8 and 8.1.
If they made a good security product, I'm pretty sure there would be much gnashing of teeth. Remember the uproar because MS dared to include a browser and media player? I'm sure if they put a decent antivirus product in Windows they'd just get sued again.
