Comment Unity wins (Score 3, Interesting) 535

Everybody was all up in arms with Ubuntu went with Unity. It was a head scratcher for a lot of folks unless you think about it from their point of view. The desktop is arguably the most important part - if users don't like it, that's it baby game over. Now imagine putting your whole product's future in the hands of Gnome or KDE. Those teams are like herds of ADHD children running amok with knives. KDE and Gnome had a decade to get their act together, they missed the boat on a Windows CE epic scale.

Education costs money, and you're fighting a culture of profit.

So long as it's profitable for vendors to increase profits they'll keep selling larger and larger portions, no matter how unhealthy it is. This is how the American public has been taught how to eat - by corporations with a profit motive.

This is not an assault on your rights. Well ok, it is. It's really intended to fight unscrupulous sugarwater vendors. At least it's something. They started with cigarettes many years ago and decades later it's had some effect.

Comment Re:73mbps != 4G (Score 1) 989

You will never get that speed on the device. I have a 4G LTE cell phone and it doesn't even get 10% of that speed.

Awesome, at 10% of full speed you'll get nearly an hour before hitting the cap. That's a tenfold improvement, fire up the marketing machine!

T-Mobile is very profitable. Deutsche only wants out because it's no longer in growth mode. It certainly won't grow any without spectrum and LTE, and it can't afford either one. So yeah it will be sold or merged one way or another, but it's not a bad business. They can ride their faux-G network for a while but not forever.
