Comment You know... (Score 1) 545

It's interesting. I've been to many customer sites in the last few years and every one has macbooks. There was one rogue windows lenovo user. I'm sure that here are many windows users and in fact while talking to out customers they have boo koo (s) amount of windows users but it seems that always the admins/managers have macbooks. Always. again, Always. In fact, I can't even remember If I have ever seen WIndows 8.1. Maybe at a best buy?

Comment Is this not the same as grass noise? (Score 4, Interesting) 66

I've heard reports of people laying on the ground and "hearing" meteors. What baffled scientist about this was people were hearing them realtime and not delayed due to the speed of sound. They finally realized that it was radio waves emitted by the meteors causing the grass to vibrate and they were hearing the vibrations.

Maybe I dreamed it...

Comment This is a real problem and not an Android problem. (Score 2) 238

This is a very real problem. My wife had her iphone 4s stolen and activated my daughter's old iphone 4s on her verizon line. About a week later she tells me that many of her friends are saying that she isn't responding to txt messages and she says she isn't getting them. This goes on for weeks. It turns out that she didn't turn on icloud on the new (old) iphone so all of the imessages were going to never never land. It's not obvious at all what is happening.
