And Lucian Armasu of Toms Hardware thinks there's a problem here? This is business as usual. In fact Google have already improved things in recent years by moving more and more features into their Google Play Services app which can be updated from the Market just like any other app. There's very little actual difference in functionality these days between a Kitkat and a Lollipop phone.
My Australian ISP (Internode, now iiNet) was one of the leading promoters of IPv6 and was one of the first to offer such connections, years ago. Many customers used IPv6 with no issues for several years. Then Netflix came to Australia. Netflix, in addition to some Australian digital TV channels and a few local mirrors is excluded from the ISP's broadband quotas. But it turns out, quota exclusion only works for IPv4. So people set their account back to a IPv4 connection.
Because of this, valuable momentum in IPv6 adoption has been lost.
Eliminate homophones and heteronyms. Strip back the synonyms. Make antonyms consistent. Remove homophenes that cause confusion for lipreaders.
Re-establish phonetic spelling. Nation and national, ration and rational should NOT have a different sound for their first syllable.
In short, undertake behaviour like Edward Scissorhands on this pile of faeces.
I LOVE getting $400 a year in reward points for funneling everything through the CC.
I LOVE incurring zero interest because it gets paid in full every month.
I LOVE the fact that I can contest/reverse bogus transactions through the CC provider.
I LOVE that the CC providers have spent decades getting really good at security.
I will not be supporting any retailer that wants to directly access my bank account.
I maintain my company's knowledge systems. Multimedia videos have several problems:
- They are not accessible to the hard of hearing or the vision-impaired.You may be breaking the law unless you invest the effort to caption every single video.
- They are hard to search. Unless you create transcripts/captions or extensively meta-tag the videos it's really hard to find specific content.
- They are not easy to update. Generally you have to reshoot and re-edit the entire video.
- They take a lot of time and effort. Generally you can produce a text-based delivery that covers more knowledge in better detail in the same time it takes you to make a video.
I've seen several efforts to "video all the things". All have failed. Corporate videos are good for one thing - delivering "talking head" messages from management. After six months you can quietly drop them from your intranet and nobody notices.
As the maintainer of my company's bugtracker I can understand this position. It's all too easy for a developer to inadvertently reveal private intellectual property in a changelog, and I don't want to spend all my time monitoring and sanitising the public's view. It's easier to give the customers a separate space to natter away in.
