Haha, what? That line cracks me up.
"Open fire on the infected. Our magic guns that heal all wounds will solve this!"
News for nerds = Nope.
Stuff that matter: = Negatory.
I have to admit, it works wonderfully. The system definitely performs better and the interface on Windows 8 is nice.
Here comes the obvious: Metro is pretty shit.
The full screen apps are useless and the main interface has no appeal. You know what my biggest problem is? The thing that bothers me the most? When I search for a program, there is no default "Show All". First it only shows programs installed, and then "Settings". Often I'm using it to find windows components like Device Manager, and it requires additional mouse clicks and movements to get there. Likewise on a tablet, it would require more touches. It's the simplest, most obvious thing, and if they overlook little things like this I don't have much hope for the rest of Metro.
The OS itself it pretty nice though.
There is nothing at all wrong with that. Most people have some sort of belief system, be it religious or another spiritual sense.
The dangerous part is when the church or governing body of that belief system is corrupt and they tell you that you must believe their word and that is it. Examples include the proclamation of the Catholic church that condoms are evil or un-chrisitian, thus preventing religious people that wish to partake in sex unable to use some sort of contraception to prevent the spread of diseases like AIDS.
I use this example strictly because it is fresh in my mind from watching a debate on whether "The Catholic Church is a Force for Good in the World."
I don't believe it would be ethical to recommend a specific religion to a patient, but letting them know about the communities that follow religions and the support network they can form I see nothing wrong with.
It also encouraged no actual vigilantism and the suspects were apprehended by police.
Cheaper too. And these chinese tabs tend to get lots of good community support.
What they taught you in school was generally accepted, but in no way set out in stone.
Example: Grocer's, Grocers' and Grocer' are all grammatically correct.
For the first time in years I visited Youtube on a freshly installed system without any addons installed, and it blew my mind how many ads there were. The main page had about 3 ads including a huge video ad in the middle. This was on a netbook and so the time it took for the ad to load was not appreciated. I loaded a music video and there was a video ad, a popup on the video, and that annoying frame around official music videos that show the next crappy pop star (in this case it was Nicki Minaj, and that was really unappreciated).
Some sites that I do visit ask me to turn it off and they so far have only served me very simple image ads or text ads which I don't really mind. It's when an ad starts playing animation and/or audio that I block them and sometimes just block the site itself completely.
You don't need to be intrusive to sell your product. It just annoys the end user. I don't remember a single flashy ads name, so that obviously does not work (in my case).
