Comment Re:If I were Google, this is where I'd put emphasi (Score 4, Interesting) 70

We're #379 on the Fortune 500 with approximately 3000 employees, and aside from tiny enclaves everyone uses Google Office. I don't know that I'd say that we actually enjoy it, or that it's a pleasure to use, but honestly I don't actually know anyone who'd say that about Microsoft's product either :)

Comment Re:cult of mac (Score 4, Interesting) 168

I don't know, man. I wasn't a Mac person back when I finally grew tired of all the hacky mp3 player solutions out there, and paid $500 for an iPod that I was HOPING I could make work with my PC back before iTunes was running on Windows. The iPod's form factor and ease of use just ended up making it the best product for me -- enough so that I shoehorned it into a Macless ecosystem and accepted the challenges inherent within.

Comment Re:Minivans are terrible for the environment (Score 3, Informative) 44

In fact, if you look at the article, and then watch the video, and then wait about a minute, you'll see the minivans they show are all plug-in electrics. (This isn't a "why the hell won't people read the article?" complaint -- it takes way too much time to figure this out. The only reason I bothered is because my spouse is deeply interested in having the Pacifica electric minivan as their next car, so I'm an interested party)

Comment Re:People go to movies? (Score 1) 142

I have a decent-sized living room; but it's also got pretty big windows facing a valley, so darkness is a pretty hard thing to accomplish.

Also? Kids. I've got a 22 month old kid at home. I can either wait until he's asleep (at which point I can't have the sound at a level commensurate with moviegoing experience) or do it when he's awake, at which point, of course, we're limited to what's appropriate for 22 month old kids.

It's far simpler to hire a babysitter and go on a date with my spouse to the movies.
