Comment Fascinating- too bad it won't work (Score 1) 157

I have a Windows Mobile 10 device, an HP Elite X3. i love the device. All told, I'd say it sucks less than my Android devices did.

Having bought a new car with Android Auto, I fired up my Galaxy S6 and connected, thinking to myself that Windows is missing another app. Well, not so much. Other than being able to control the device from a larger screen I immediately was less than impressed. Not only was the functionality less but the same fuzzy blah graphics that I so hated on Gnome (vs KDE) were present.

I need to check out an Iphone 6. I have a few dozen here at work. Maybe i'll slip my AT&T SIM into one and take it for a test drive.

Comment Let's spread some more FUD, why don't we? (Score 1) 209

Man, seems like everyone is wanting to spread FUD on elections items.

Let's see, OH, yes, Wired ran a guide yesterday to how to rig an election in 10,000 easy steps:

Way easier just to pay off your special interest groups.

Comment The sky is falling...again (Score 1) 182

Here we go again, with the "it isn't secure, and we're gonna hack the election" conspiracy. Funny how our entire banking system is online and secure enough, yet voting isn't. We're still forced to accept 1800's era paper trails. Even the multi-million LA County voting system (last designed in 1969) is being redone with a paper balloting process.http://vsap.lavote.net/

Sheesh!

...actually it is valid for quick prototyping. Though client/server is very old-school (not as old as cobol) at least for a quick-and-dirty app, it can work.

I would love to see it become OSS and then have it running under the radar like IBM sort of did with eComStation.

Of course, being a PHB, i don't actually do any programming any more, so I have no stake in this. All our stuff is either Java or C# these days.

Comment People still use Facebook? (Score 1) 387

Not being a troll, but I figured people were dropping off. I used FB for several years, then finally got tired of hearing how fantastic everyone was and how I should stop the abuse of toasters by signing yet another petition. Besides my two teenagers have zero interest in FB. For them it is all about snapchat, oovoo and a little bit of Twitter.

I'm surprised they have influence enough to make this an issue.
