NSN A392-99-964-5927 writes: I have not published my report as of yet, but over the last 5 years I struggle to find what social networks finally achieve. Before I publish the report later this year I would like to ask slashdot. Have people decided on a specific purpose in joining that Social Network or is it Just the lack of something to do?

Submission + - Can we live without JAVA, HTML5, FLASH etc?

NSN A392-99-964-5927 writes: I was wondering is it really possible to live without Java, HTML 5, Flash etc? I ask because back in my day the best way was to keep things simple.

The more developments the more security issues and yet again another security patch. I therefore wanted to ask users what you really feel about this? It seems like a dog chasing it's tail and there is no end in sight.

Do you now also think that coders/developers are being manipulated by marketing and advertisers to try and sell you something more (Part with your cash).

The question is do I feel alone in this respect? or is simplicity the best after all. Hell me landed men on the Moon with less than 2MB of RAM!

Those people writing a dissertation for a Ph.D need Credit! Do you not agree that is would be incredibly interesting for dash slot to have a section like this beyond education so we can all learn idea's against convention of the normal idiot on the street?

Submission + - 150 year invention dies - The Typewriter (business-standard.com)

NSN A392-99-964-5927 writes: "The Typewriter is dead. There is a sadness attached to the typex and those who remember burning the midnight oil typing away without typo's and the clack of each letter, number and symbol.

I have a typewriter, but what are you going to miss?

I suppose for those nostalgic people, there are things you do not miss, like a monitor and keyboard, with a typewriter you have them all rolled into one. The question is; Is this a sad day for writers?"
