Comment As usual the non-technical get screwed (Score 0) 13

That's nice that they offer the flexibility, but why on earth is the default the one worse for battery life? A non technical user will generally not appreciate the extra resolution while they WOULD appreciate the extra battery life... All users will know is they get an update and the battery life is worse.

This move seems like one that is done by marketing (to make the phones generally look better) than from any group that considers user happiness.

Comment Are you kidding? That is a prime example (Score 1) 1184

You have got to be joking, that was one of the more calculated tweets. He knew the press would react immediately to any criticism of anyone black. Except that Trump's criticism was accurate, so it actually weakened John Lewis (who was coasting on a history of civil rights support fifty some years ago until that point with no accountability for current inaction) and also made the press look stupid for fervently protesting against a valid point. Even black women in Atlanta (Lewis's district) agreed with Trump.

And you call that uncalculated... that tweet was carefully chosen in target to increase black support for Trump.

Comment Not impulsive at all (Score 4, Interesting) 1184

It amazes me that people continue to believe Trump is impulsive. There's nothing impulsive about anything Trump does; it's all extremely calculated. If I didn't know better I was say the press were in collusion to spread that myth in order to make people underestimate Trump, but as usual Occam's razor applies and the press are just full of idiots.

I've seen who he's appointing to different positions. No he has no skill for hiring good talent. Not a single person he's bringing on board is remotely qualified for that position.

That's because you don't understand what people in leadership positions do...

Sorry about that, but it's on you - not Trump.

DeVos alone as education secretary is enough to make up for any slack in other picks. She may actually be able to help fix the dire state of public education.

Comment Not luck at all (Score 2, Insightful) 159

If you followed Trump at all before the election, you'd realize that Trump is actually quite smart, and really does understand not only how the world works but is especially excellent at negotiation and hiring good talent.

Some of the things he's saying over Twitter are calibrated to make him look dumb, so that people underestimate him. It's funny to me that people say Trump has a huge ego, therefore he needs attention from press and media... it's because Trump has a huge ego that none of that matters to him. He is ecstatic that people continue to fall for the lie Trump is dumb, because it makes it so easy for him to move forward with whatever he wants to do and surprise everyone.

Comment It's not about tuition, it's about connection (Score 1) 304

If the Endowment is large enough they can give every student free tuition.

Don't think you understand how the top universities work. Tuition doesn't matter at all; all that matters is f you are connected enough to get in. They are "diverse" in ways that do not matter, but shun true diversity such as economic or political diversity.

SMH -- I am neither right wing (I am libertarian, anti-statist) and as my posts clearly show, rather the opposite of racist. I do have a long history but it's of wisdom distributed to help the lost such as yourself, but I can only take you so far and the rest of the journey is up to you.

I will leave the last response to you, here here on your path is your own. Choose well!

How am I the racist in pointing out how the black community is being taken advantage of? It seems pretty sure the real racists are the ones who harm the black community while claiming to support them. That's some Deep Racism right there.

I'm just trying to help by point out the obvious so some in the community can become Awake, rather than just Woke.

Comment Welcome to the Osborne Effect (Score 2, Interesting) 132

For those not up on computer history, Osborne was a computer maker that announced a great new model coming in a year... so sales started tanking while people waited... which meant there was no model in a year (or maybe there was, my memory is fuzzy on that detail).

I think MS was really dumb to try and compete with the PS4 Pro by saying they would have improved hardware next year. All they had to do was literally nothing, the PS4 Pro is not big enough of a bump that it would have effected XBox sales...

Although really it seems like XBox sales have been lagging even before the recent hardware upgrade was announced.

Comment Re:MAGA (Score 0, Troll) 119

You do know that he only "cares" about blacks and unemployed to piss of the liberals, right?

If true that would be one step ahead of liberals, who actively farm black people like cattle (or those Matrix pods) for votes but don't care about the condition they live in. After all since blacks vote almost all democrats you can abuse them as much as you like and it just doesn't matter.
