Isn't that what everyone said about Nokia back in 2007?
Nokia went with devices like the Communicator, which opened out to give a big screen for web browsing with a computer style keyboard, with much of their pre-iPhone touch screen developments still on the drawing board when Apple pounced.
That makes it sound like Nokia's Communicator only failed because it missed the "next big thing'" of touchscreen. The real reason they failed was because they were awful phones. Even without the touchscreen iPhone around to compare to, they were terrible. Slow, buggy, poor UI, heavy, bad hardware design.
Nokia may have lacked courage and vision, but they also lacked technical ability.
At some point in the future, you are going to screw up badly at work. It's inevitable: you do something every day for years, you're going to make a mistake. When that day comes, do you want to be known as the arrogant one in the office that's always complaining?
Or do you want to be the one that everyone remembers for patiently helping them out with their work, so that you can rely on colleagues to help you out, minimise the fallout and defend you to management?
Sadly, the Guardian sells next to nothing despite it being by far the best newspaper.
My laptop doesn't fit in my pocket. My phone does.
Yes I agree with that. The thing is, ever time I made things more accurate I later realise I've made it too involved.
However, it *is* visually convincing and it does explain it, and so I thought it would make quite a good introduction.
Do feel free to get in contact with me about any ideas though. I know it isn't perfect, or anywhere near, and there is always a good reason to improve it.
As for the other comment, opps I'll fix that.
Oh and also this book is great:
You don't need much knowledge (A-Level knowledge in the UK) but there are so many wonderful results proved in it!
I wrote this:
It was meant as an introduction to the idea of proof. Perhaps you might like it.
Not only do I want my computer to fucking work, I want it to continue fucking working no matter what anyone else does.
I don't care why Apple sells computers.
If you can't understand that, then you're an idiot. Stop assuming everyone uses computers the same way you do.
You sure? One of the great things about NetHack is that you have all the time you want before doing anything. Fall down a hole and get surrounded by 'H's, take a break, read up on what you can do, decide the best way to continue. None of this "I must act as soon as possible" stuff.
It doesn't work because the switch is emacs -nw. Either set an alias, install emacs-nox if you have it, or start emacs with an empty $DISPLAY variable.
Engineering students might well need one though.
