Today, Microsoft announces that it has partnered with Lenovo on a new mobile initiative. The Windows-maker's productivity apps will be pre-loaded on Lenovo and Motorola-branded devices running Google's Linux-based Android operating system.
That was my take also.
Unless they put out something like Axanar, they simply won't overcome the barriers to entry for the audience inherent in this approach for more than a negligible few.
Paranoid conspiracy theorists are generally too strung up to overly care about grammar.
I think you meant "strung out".... or maybe not?
I was in a hurry and missed it.
I know the difference but was not even thinking of "lead", the material. I was distracted while typing the brief post which when I typed it was timely and, I thought, of interest to the Slashdot community. I was thinking of "lead" (pronounced "leed") as in "to lead" while reading the original article in one window and composing my post in another and keeping an eye on the clock with little time before I needed to tend to something. I'm not a grammar NAZI, but this sort of error usually sticks out at me when I read it, and I would have caught it had I spent an extra moment on it. The error was one of attention rather than ignorance.
I am not offended that you flagged it. We would all benefit from being a little more careful in what we post both on matters of content and style. It was however a minor error on your part to presume ignorance when simple carelessness was a sufficient explaination. Another thing we would all benefit from is not presuming each other to be either ignorant or persons of ill will. Sometime people of goodwill simply disagree, and sometimes people of goodwill simply make a typical human error.
"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." - George Washington, first President of the US
If people would spend more time reading what our founders said and wrote, and just a tiny bit less time on pop culture, we might be a little bit less messed-up. They designed the American system and left us both the operating manual (the Constitution) and their design notes (extensive writings, both for and against the choices they made see: "Federalist Papers" and "Anti-Federalist Papers" and all thier other books and writings).
I run incognito on occasion, but as a rule i'm on Firefox+NoScript+ABP and not actually in 'Private' browsing mode.
I suspect this leaves me much more trackable, but if i am browsing untrusted sites (read:ANY sites), i am way more worried about remote 0day compromise of the week than i am tracking.
Still, if i could auto-incognito and whitelist from that mode or cognito-reload at will (without enabling anything else) I would likely add that to my mix. But again, i run scripts disabled all the time so i'm willing to be a bit more involved in my browsing than most.
Something about calling it random doesn't seem to fit...
I had a child with a corn allergy (thank God she grew out of it...) I get the pain of avoiding corn in the modern diet.
The right answer, however, is proper labeling of CORN as it is a common allergen, though not typically causing as violent a reaction as say, peanuts.
As it stands those with this particular allergy are subject to a brutal game of epi-roulette identifying foods with corn in them.
