Now I see a windows icon in the tray titled "Get Windows 10". It has a "Test if your PC is ready" tool and tells me my upgrade is reserved. I assume it would tell me when it's ready to install.
I'm not quite should how they're seeing files on the watch, so that might be interesting on it's own.
Same thing with the big bang. It makes me want to say "Creationists are retards", even though I'm smart enough to know that saying that isn't productive. It's infuriating.
Under the draft provisions of the latest trade deal to be leaked by Wikileaks, countries could be barred from trying to control where their citizens' personal data is held or whether it's accessible from outside the country.
1. How is that supposed to work if no one knows about it?
I assume that the companies doing business would be "business as usual", and the country's governments being bullied by the agreement just wouldn't be able to say they want their citizens' data store within borders. Which sounds ok for me, being in the US, but sounds pretty shitty for them...but that sounds like "business as usual" from what I hear.
2. Congress should always be barred from adding amendments that have nothing to do with the bill. Something related I'm good with, but an amendment to spend money studying ducks in Arkansas on a bill to build a bridge in Massachusetts is bologna.
The realist in me says "You paid too much for the Windows laptop."
Isn't the Apple motto "It just works"? Not it works well, or quickly.
The optimist in me is still sleeping.
But that's not what I came here to say. I came to say that I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand I use ad block on my computers. I don't generally on my phone, but I also don't browse from my phone often. And I like the idea of blocking ads so they don't consume my data allowance.
On the other hand I don't like my ISP filtering through my content. There's nothing to stop them from playing MITM (looking at you Verizon).
Then I would point out how we produce that food. Cattle standing shoulder to shoulder and pigs in cages, round-up ready corn, then all of that trucked around. Shipments of peaches from Chile in the off season (don't get me wrong - I like that part).
Honestly, I think our highway rush hour every car has 1 person and we're all going under 10 miles an hour bullshit has more to do with it.
The world population is larger than it's ever been, and only projected to rise. People exhale CO2. The problem isn't man-made, the problem IS man.
Improve the substance of modern games and movies: that's a more complicated problem.
So I think it might be alright for a rollercoaster sim, where looking at it on a monitor vs looking at it with VR goggles isn't totally different. Though I do understand that you can have each eye independent so it might actually "feel" different - and that's where "it needs to be applied correctly" comes into play.
I think virtual desk kind of applications are interesting.
Driving games are where head tracking might be awesome. Because the keyboard and mouse are gas/break and steering, so you are totally free to look around and give the evil eye to that guy passing you.
