And we’re going to install ten applications from the most popular downloads list. And we’re going to assume the persona of a regular non-geek user." Read the full article.

Is crapware completely destroying the user experience for a non-geek user?

I agree. the US is very monopolistic. The only difference between Europe and USA is that we at least voted for our politics. You can't vote for economic forces like this. Hell, I hear they still use fax and checks in the US, and where paying by card still takes several seconds.

Comment Jottacloud has unlimited storage 6$. And it works. (Score 1) 983

Being a Jottacloud customer for a long time, I really like their backup. Unlimited storage is 6$ per month. You can specify when to back up, and you can exclude subfolders from sync, and you can limit the bandwidth used.

I guess it's not very well known in the US, but it's been for several years in Europe. All servers are located in Norway.

Unlimited is limited to one computer.

Comment So many have tried. And failed.. (Score 1) 91

People have tried for so many years now, and I think we are seeing a trend here now. It's almost impossible to create a flying car that hoovers stable with the technology available today, tomorrow and I predict the same for the next 30 years. And even if they get them stable, the cars will be so dangerous concerning in-air malfunction that they would require a complete double set of engines and fuel and at least two pilots.

You do the math.

So many have tried. So many companies has invested and lost their money. Still people seem to think that this will come and they think of how much they could earn in patents etc if they are able to materialize a stable solution.
