A SATA/PATA to USB adapter will set you back a whole 10 dollars. Well worth the investment.
Correct. They are distinct. Science doesn't deal in truth. It wouldn't be useful otherwise.
Truth is squarely the domain of logic and philosophy.
I'm the troll?
Interesting. Enjoy your iPad. I'm off to do actual work.
Sales of a touch-only device vs a device that demands a pointer device for a bunch of stuff is not evidence?
Obviously not. I guess you're in that bottom 0.5%.
Yet, you have no evidence of your assertion other than "I like using one".
All I did was agree with Bill. You're the one making specific claims here.
Do people want to use them as a primary input method?
Move that goal post!
So, no? I didn't think so.
Nice try with "sales" though, I'm sure that'll sucker in the bottom 0.5%. I'll let you work out why everyone else knows it's laughably absurd.
Moving on, what's your problem with the stylus? It's very useful and greatly enhances the utility of tablets. Think of all the things you could do with your tablet that you cannot reasonably do now.
Now, you might not find it terribly useful. That's okay. The rest of us want to do more with our tablets than just play video games.
I suppose you have some data to support that?
I thought that was banned in the Geneva Conventions.
That's probably because you didn't actually need it. Like your smartphone and tablet today, just silly toys to most users.
he still publicly claimed tablets using stylus were better/preferred
And they are.
Yeah, now everyone wishes we had them back.
No, those fat crayon styluses don't count.
Let's try it the other way:
C, properly written, is much more secure than C++.
Huh, it still works. I guess that's what happens when you use a ridiculous qualifier like "properly written".
Translation: I don't understand dynamic typing, therefore, it's bad and PHP is bad.
(Just a guess, but I'll bet he still thinks Python, Perl, Lisp, etc. are okay. There often isn't much thinking involved when repeating memes and talking points.)
and far more expressive
Such silly nonsense.
If you took ALL the theoretical wealth from the evil 1% or whoever you hate, it wouldn't make up a single years budget deficit in the US.
0/10 not even plausible.
As Steve Jobs once remarked (about iTunes for Windows users), like giving a glass of ice water to someone in hell.
iTunes for Windows? I thought that WAS hell?!
