Microsoft seems to arrogantly double down on everything people hate in Windows 10. Even if it was a great OS with awesome features and stellar usability (that's "if") I wouldn't want to use it at this point.
Sorry, but I prefer to, you know, own my own computer.
To be fair, though, smartphones and tablets are probably as bad or worse. Can we trust Android? iOS? Tell another joke.
I do have to say (though somewhat going off topic) that as a haole myself, I've only very seldom experienced prejudice. Maybe it's because I try to be respectful and don't have an attitude. I realize that even though I've been in Hawai`i for some years now, I'm really something of a guest in someone else's back yard
Certainly, there are some here that will hate me just as a matter of principle. But I've found that to be surprisingly rare and not much of a problem.
Now, if you come here with an attitude, and think that Hawai`i ought to be some sort of tropical extension of the mainland, and think you're some sort of superior person with the right to look down on the "natives" then you're asking for it.
More interesting is probably the term that Native Hawaiians are using to describe him, which would be "haole".
Well, he is haole. The meaning of the word in the Hawaiian language is really "foreigner" but in common talk here, it has come to be a sometimes derisive term for a Caucasian. It can be, but is certainly not necessarily, racist or derogatory, and it isn't either of those in the true Hawaiian meaning of the word.
The Zuckerberg development was the lead front page story in today's Star Advertiser (our local Honolulu newspaper). It seemed to be to be presented in a negative light, as in, here goes another rich haole from the mainland grabbing Native Hawaiian land. It's easy to see it that way but in Hawai`i hardly anything is simple or straightforward, and I'm reserving judgment until I learn more about it, though siding with Zuckerberg would be pretty distasteful.
it seems like a tower of shit waiting to fall over
Definitely one of the most original expressions I've heard in some while!
reality is that people today are making significantly less for the same amount of work
True, at least from what I read and see. But this is not limited to millenials. Apparently it cuts across the workforce.
I've had luck hosting my website with them for a good 15 years. Of course I don't do ecommerce and my needs aren't super complex. Their prices have been okay and I've had very little site downtime.
If you need help, though
From TFS: "When Microsoft first launched Windows 10, it was generally well-received"
By whom? I don't recall much in the way of rave reviews except from paid promotors. I do recall quite a few people saying they'll stay on Windows 7, thank you.
Apple is selling tons of iPhone 7 units
Apple would sell tons of iPhone x units even if they were just an empty shell, as long as they were deemed "super cool" by the Apple crowd.
And actually, this is not so much a criticism as it is a salute to Apple marketing. They have built a base of incredibly loyal fans who will buy any Apple product at any price. This may well be unique in the history of business.
Spin it any way you wish. I still feel more secure with Linux than I ever would with Windows 10.
And to think, it's all the fault of straight white males.
Forgot to add
I don't understand your response. The maps you reference show about what I said, big Hillary margins on the coasts (and some metropolis cities), Trump getting the in-between territory.
Your politico quote is misquoted --- it says Trump is now more popular than ever (that surprises me too but there you have it).
And I hardly claimed a Trump landslide --- it certainly wasn't. But he did win, and the explanation for that doesn't seem overly complex.
I didn't vote for either Trump or Hillary --- but if you look at what actually happened, you don't need conspiracy theories to explain it.
Hillary won the east and west coasts, very much as you might have expected. She won them big and that's the main reason for her overall popular vote win.
She lost in conservative states where you would expect that.
The pollsters and pundits misread the situation on the ground in states like Michigan, which they thought Hillary would win, but instead went over to Trump by fairly narrow margins. This appears to be more to do with the economy, jobs, etc., than leaked emails and the like.
Of course, all of this can be debated endlessly, but what is there about the election that really leads to a credible theory of manipulation, fraud, and hacking? The fact that Hillary lost is not exactly evidence.
You may or may not be disappointed with the outcome. You may or may not be happy that Trump will be president. But there certainly seems to be a fairly simple and fairly logical explanation for the outcome. That seems a lot stronger than conspiracy theories.
