Comment Ugh, I hate tabs within apps (Score 1) 104

I want CROSS APPLICATION tabbing, which we already have in Windows. I prefer to organize elements based on functionality, not based on what app is being used. A single project may include multiple elements that are not all word documents or excel spreadsheets but combine disparate applications. Hiding stuff within an apps tabs such that you have to drill down into the app to find stuff is counterproductive. I happen to like the Windows taskbar, though I put it on the side so that I can stack up more "tabs" and be able to tell what they are, and that works fine. What I hate is when individual instances are collapsed into a single entry, as then I can't go directly from one to another without fishing for the instance.... Spare me the tabs, that's the first thing I want to turn off in any browser...

Not in any sane medical system

I wouldn't argue that point. However, they're already doing it-- my major carrier employer healthcare plan for example, offers a discount if you buy a FitBit and meet certain goals with it. Goals that, according to some fellow employees who've attempted to meet them, are next to impossible to achieve. No one ever said it was going to be "sane."

Comment Re:Why is income equality necessarily good? (Score 1) 516

The economic productivity problem is being solved via the use of robot slaves. The real problem is the fact that more and more at the bottom of the ladder have got less and less important to do with themselves but make trouble for those at the top of the ladder. Idle hands, and all that.
