That's precisely his point. If you were a rich person, you would have access to investment vehicles with a larger return than 2%, and access to credit lines at lower rates.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The best solution to union meddling concerning the split shifts is to employ half of the drivers in the morning and the other half in the evening.
No more split shifts and half the pay. Hooray for unions?
The old fashioned menu UI is hardly efficient and intuitive. For a start, it doesn't allow in-line changes to things such as cell formatting or easy selection of graph/table design options.
And as for why some settings are under a completely unintuitive menu name, I have no idea.
However, that's my opinion. Yours differs.
The internet simply changes the impulse buying method.
Instead of catalogues and shelves full of impulse buy items, we now have recommended purchases which other users bought, the ability to buy things without even taking out your debit/credit card and flash sales.
FUD? Perhaps they saw what happened to the Snapchat users who used a third party client which uploaded their photos to their own server and are acting now to ensure users only use the official version.
I remember the joys of Microsoft Office 2003 (and earlier).
It was great being able to select Paste Special from the Edit Menu and painstakingly selecting the options I wanted. It was so much more intuitive than clicking on the arrow under the paste and quickly selecting the appropriate option.
Or how it was easier to go into the formatting box when all you wanted to do was to increase or decrease the number of decimal places, compared to the modern way of simply using the correct button on the home tab.
If you had never used Office prior to 2003, would you instinctively know where to find the option to hide gridlines in Excel? Or that the option to group and outline was under the Data Menu and not the View Menu? I think not.
If you feel that the ribbon UI is a "click and hope funfest", perhaps you need to spend more time using Microsoft Office and learning where things are. It took me a few weeks back in 2010 and now I fly through the ribbons far quicker than I could hope to find the correct menu.
Computers and the internet are the important things in life...
Hardware-wise, the Apple trackpads are superior to ones designed to work with PCs. However, the Apple trackpads are limited to two fingered use on non-Apple operating systems through the use of crippled drivers and therefore something like a Logitech T650 is far superior when using a non-Apple OS.
First of all, iTunes.
I dislike it and refuse to install it on my PC. It's bloated and not user friendly. It clearly epitomises Apple's philosophy of making the user do things Apple's way. It's well overdue for a rethink and I expect to see that come soon.
With regards to iOS, it is on the cusp of greatness. It has some very nice features, it's user interface is fluid and easy to use and the design works well.
However, they need to take some time to make everything work well together and make the OS and apps more integrated.
- If users want to access my music stored in Dropbox or Google Drive or even a samba share, facilitate a method of saving that into the music library.
- Let users backup photos to Dropbox or Onedrive in the background as with iCloud backup. It's a real waste of time having to keep the app open and the screen unlocked.
- Similarly, let users sync music and videos in third party apps which permit it. Like Spotify and Plex.
- Third party app defaults would be pretty cool. Like being able to select Chrome or Gmail as default apps.
- Allow a bit more customisation such as changing control centre quick options.
It's really frustrating as Apple could come out with the best features in the world, but as long as they impose these arbitrary restrictions, iOS will always feel hamstrung.
My understanding of the UK's law on slander and libel is that if you are accused of such an act, you simply have to show that what you said is true.
I don't think that's a bad thing.
I think a bad launch is probably irreversible. I didn't pre-order the game but planned to buy it on my next payday after release; I ended up not doing so.
If they patch it up and fix the bugs (and it gets good reviews), I'll buy it pre-owned and the money will go to the retailer/person selling the game.
Sometimes attendance at an event is mandatory, even though undesirable. Company-wide briefings by Senior Managers, for example. I don't mind checking a notification discretely on my Pebble, but I would never pull my phone out and make it obvious.
For this to work and reach a mass market, the price needs to be (i) realistic and (ii) generate an impulse purchase.
There are too many subscription services out there; everyone wants their £5 per month or £7.99 per month or £9.99 per month, and it all adds up. I think an ad-free YouTube at £1.99 per month would entice a lot of people. Any more would probably not be worth it.
BTW, Adblock is great and I love it. But it doesn't stop the adverts which sometimes play before a video when I'm using the YouTube app on my iPhone.
Their iPhone is stolen from Sony's blue-prints, for example.
I saw this a while back and the similarity is certainly striking. It raises the question as to why Sony hasn't seen the same success as Apple, if the iPhone is a mere copy of Sony's design.
On the continent, the thousand separator is typically the full stop instead of the comma, so the actual fine amount would be €250k (and not €250).
