I did this all while you were watching TV
But seriously, WTF do I need a separate APP to stream each goddamned channel?!!! The function is standard, the endpoint just changes.
The rights holders are the problem and will never allow this.
The fragmentation of media into smaller entities is a good thing and while the complexity goes up, the result is a buffet of entertainment for any mildly skilled geek due to the broken technologies that resulted from this lack of coordination. Apple can talk and talk about fixing the brokenness but nothing is going to happen. Mainly because no one can figure out how to make money off of it except Apple.
It's not a casino, no one is wearing pocketless clothes.
I bought one in my entire life. I steer around every one that costs money because there is insufficient value add to make it worthwhile. I'll most likely never buy one again.
Maybe those in China just haven't wised up yet.
The trackpad is very much a thing. 2014 Macbook Pro has one, and it has no buttons. For that matter, her prior 2009 edition had no buttons either.
One gets the impression that they don't. I mean, I wasn't their market anyway. I absolutely despise the no-buttons touch panel on recent Macbooks. But not having any useful ports completely rules out the device even for my wife.
The USG has a "directive" to go to SI on a voluntary basis that dates from the Ford Administration (!) There is an accompanying Executive Order (12770) that was issued by GHW Bush in 1991, that similarly doesn't mandate a change.
The bottom line is that it would take a literal act of God to make the US switch in any meaningful way. Every time progress is made, it gets walked back over time because the US is still on imperial units for all intents and purposes. People like it this way - everyone knows what a liter is due to international drink packaging, but kilograms and centimeters are not well understood by the common people.
The words "Citrix" and "Novell" are very bad choices. I've had to excise those.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I ask you, do these sound like the actions of a man who has had all he can eat?
It's sad, we have a whole generation who've never known that the Simpsons used to be funny.
No they don't, at least not exclusively.
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
