Kind of like every other phone available.
But should it run in user land, kernel land or wayland?
And then the public would say, "we'll if cloning Hitler helps them find terrorists, I'm ok with it."
The headline is misleading. This article is about Gnome Shell and a bit about KDE. The author says he has just started using Gnome Classic, and will report on it later.
He makes no comments about Gnome Classic in this article.
You might find that priority inbox can work for you. If you go to settings -> inbox then set the mode to priority inbox you can set the first section to be "unread" emails. Which sounds exactly like what you want.
Maybe you should ask for your money back?
I don't think you understood his point.
Stick to LTS releases if you like stability and dislike upgrading frequently. Use the latest release if you like playing around with the latest stuff.
Other amusing features in 13.04: a button that shows the desktop, and a workspace switcher (disabled by default) that lets you know which workspace you're currently using. Wow, Ubuntu. Unity is on pace to have all the desktop features that Gnome 2 and Xfce have had for years by 2016.
Both those features you mentioned have been in Ubuntu forever (since at least 2007 when I started using it). You might be confused because they changed the behaviour of the workspace switcher in 13.04, disabling it by default.
Quite a few people grow old without growing up.
You mean, they stay immature?
I would be far more inclined to have a game on this than to organise paint ball.
Paint ball involves pre-planning, showering, dressing, leaving the house and worst of all, IRL friends.
This I can pick up any time.
Plus, looks like a lot more fun than going to the gym.
With cars, we say 'it gets the better milage' because you aren't actually comparing cost
According to your argument we should say "it gets better distance for a given amount of fuel." Saying "mileage" incorporates the unit "mile" and incorporating a unit to denote a dimension is apparently something you are vehemently opposed to.
Saying "it costs the same as painting a wall" is less accurate than saying "it costs the same per unit area as paint."
I'll just ignore your ad hominem bullshit.
The one square meter thing means for the same area, it's just a sensible way to express it. You don't say "my car is cheaper to run for the same distance travelled than yours," you say "I get more kilometres per litre."
what will you really be able to do with Google Glass, beyond having information presented before your eyes?
Isn't that kind of a description of Google search?
I don't think a product has to have fancy use cases for it to be viable. Often the simplest is the best. Sure smart phones have millions of interesting apps, but what do you use yours for 90% of the time? If you're like me, it's looking stuff up on the web and communicating with people.
Google's approach to search has been heading in this direction for a while now. First it was a traditional search engine, then offering predictions and suggestions, then search-as-you-type, and now, with Google Now, its essentially search results before you even have to ask for them.
As I see it, Google Glass is primarily a display for Google Now. It brings you from pulling your phone out, unlocking, opening Google Now and seeing it's results, to seeing results as soon as you gesture your head.
It's still just search results (from your calendar/diary/history as well as the web) just quicker than ever before.
It drives my wife crazy, but I just can't afford the security risk of letting her in the house.
