Probable disclaimer from Microsoft:
Users of Microsoft Visual Studio for Mac OSX may find certain features of Visual Studio do not function as expected under the Mac OSX platform. For those users, we recommend using Visual Studio on a Microsoft Windows-based platform, to improve reliability.
You didn't really expect us to write quality software for a competing OS that didn't eventually drive you over to Windows, did you? Silly user...
It seems to me that this is an example of corporations quite clearly forcing consumers into something they don't want. They only way to stop them is to NOT buy these devices.
I have 2 older iPods, a smartphone, a surround sound a/v receiver, CD players, MP3 players, ancient transistor radios, etc., and NONE of them work with USB headphones. All of them work with standard audio jacks. I'm not investing in new headphones, dongles, cables, etc.
"It's far more concerning what's being transmitted while the phone is operating normally."
Agreed. This issue have been my primary concern with tablets and smartphones.
Taking the battery out is not an appropriate solution in this case. I think the underlying idea here is that certain functions of a smartphone are required in some situations, but the smartphone's tendency to "call home" under those situations may be undesirable. Removing the battery defeats both: sure, the smartphone can no longer call home but, with no battery, I am also unable to take notes, use the calculator or view documents previously saved to the smartphone's memory.
Yup... a new category should be created: "Ask Slashvertisement"
> "as you spin out, pulling a 365."
Microsoft won't let you complete a 365. If you make such an attempt, an automated check for an Office365 license occurs; if no license key is found, Windows Genuine Advantage will notify you of illegal software, stop the car's spin at 365 degrees and disable braking functions (I'm assuming brakes are an add-on, only available with an Office365 license).
This could lead to a schism. Wars have been fought over less.
Pizzafarians FTW, Alex.
This is why you should rely on the more secure iOS operating system.
I tried this, but it wouldn't run my Android apps.
