Excel has a very stubborn and evil UI bug. It's been there forever, and it appears that MS has no intention of ever fixing it, or ever giving users an option to suppress the behavior. Ever try to scroll a large document, and you'll see what I mean. It is impossible to scroll by half-cells (or >1 cell). It's very annoying, especially when you have cells which contain a paragraph or two of text, and makes it almost impossible to navigate without losing your place as you're reading a spreadsheet. The other really horrible issue is that tab-names can only be llike 15 characters. If you need a more descriptive name for tabs, well, then, fuck you.
Tizen on smartwatches does have some pretty good battery life.
Not so much.
Also - samsung writes SHITTY UI's.
I use an S5. I don't hate it.
I used to use a Samsung DVD player - I actually loved that thing.
I was slightly less impressed with the GG2. (running Tizen).
I am appalled and horrified by their absolutely craptastic "SmartHub" system on their TV. Not sure if it's Tizen-based, but it's really, really bad.
yet, still, nobody needs or wants it.
There are people out there who will NEVER be convinced; because they'd rather sit on their high-horse and morally judge people for being fat. The simplistic worldview that fat people simply overeat, and that there's nothing else going on, is too compelling, even if it is wrong.
I've had my Samsung S5 (Verizon) complain that TowelRoot was malware.
Also, after rooting, the update process seemed to fail from that point onwards; I can't install any vendor-provided update successfully.
Honestly, I'm far more afraid of DUMB programs, set loose by psychopathic human operators. Humans will do almost anything to fuck over other people, and make a buck. An antelope thighbone is a simple tool. One that can be misused. A program is just a much more sophisticated tool.
Why are we afraid of the moment when a tool decides to use other tools, when any human can do horrible things.
Again, it's really annoying that the bad actors screw things up for everybody.
Tragedy of the Commons, eh?
even in the nuclear industry, we regulate, and monitor - - obsessively. Yet, accidents happen.
In the drilling industry - we're FAR less strict. I think it's almost guaranteed that accidents in fracking are more the rule than the exception.
there's a utility for MBP's called "SMCFan Control" - however, it has been a bit "flaky" in my experience.
If you boot to either Fedora or Ubuntu, there are some great temperature/fan/CPU controls that can be used to moderate heat.
The MBP is absolutely fucking amazing hardware. You pay for it though. And there are trade-offs (no 3-6 disk slots, that's for sure).
yeah, cable news has gone down the shitter - but frankly, that's been a very strong trend since 1982 or so.
Right. If only someone had the vision to write (Economic) Science Fiction. . . (or maybe that's Fantasy writing right there. . . )
Yes; I'm looking back at my "mac fanboi problems" from the 1990's, and the reason I bought Macs then, was to run Mac OS, or some mac-only software - the hardware was always pretty much playing "catch up". The fishtank-iMac was the first glimmer of hope on the hardware front. The dual G5 was amazing, even if OS X was kind of rough.
But at a certain point, it became obvious that the OS team was being pillaged of talent for the i-device (iOS) team. The fact that Apple pulled all support for PPC kind of put a knife in it for me. And that's when I went over to PC hardware.
Windows 8 was an amazing opportunity for Apple - and they totally blew it. Microsoft tripped, stumbled, and Apple could have curb-stomped them with a great development effort to tune-up OS X. They blew that opportunity off. And Microsoft STILL isn't really on their feet yet.
Now: I have a macbook pro - because it's just an "insanely great" piece of hardware. But the ONLY reason I'm running OS X is to be able to use VMWare Fusion. If VMWare Fusion's features were available on Linux, that's what I would be running on my MBP.
I suspect arson was somewhat frowned on then as it is now.
lol. If it "creates jobs" - then it is pretty much accepted with open arms, if not worshiped and deified.
just a word about this program - sometimes it gets flagged as spyware. I don't know if it's because f.lux has to know your location (in order to time the local sunset) - or if there's something else going on. There are some other programs. There is g.lux, and redshift, for starters.
