Ha. Ha. Real funny. The 1990s want their joke back.
Cheap hardware? What gives you that idea? Are you one of those Apple bathers that never even used Apple stuff?
Words fail me.
Apple has a history of telling their audience during keynotes that Apple will take gaming seriously, and not acting like it does. So indeed, NO.
There's Beamer. It streams every movie I throw at it to the Apple TV with no problems.
Why? Everybody says that it is but I never read a convincing reason.
Indeed. I said something similar in a similar conversation years ago and was scolded. But no one could tell me why I need to know about differential equations, imaginary numbers and integrals to program a computer.
People who say this most likely have never even seen Apple products up close.
Why? Everybody here on
I live in the Netherlands, and while some of the things you describe happen here too, education is improving here. Not because of improved teaching methods, although there have been some innovations like interactive schoolboards and the use of the internet for finding information, but mostly because we set minimal levels of the skills teachers need to have. And still there is always a call for better, faster and radically different education. But nobody ever seems to care about why this is necessary and what good education is. Also, new methods that are tried out are not eveluated and our governments don't have long-term visions about education. Our current gouvernment doesn't have any vision about any subject, and therefore reacts to any stimulans (like accidents, disasters but also good things) with unnecessary new laws. What our education system needs most at the moment is a government that does nothing about it.
There are lots of people who claim that the current education methods are 'archaic' and 'old fashioned' but I never heard any one of them claim why that is so. I have the impression that much of the drive to change education is just for the sake of change (and for the sake of money in the pockets of the producers of the books etc that go with it).
The worst thing is that these people probably most often get to be influential managers later, because they speak the language.
I just want my car to work. Why an Internet connection is necessary is beyond me. "But over the air updates!" you say. If a small convenience can give so much trouble I'd rather update at home or the garage using a wire, thank you.
