I really wonder if these Chromebooks keep your information private.   If I had a child in a school that used Chromebooks I'd demand assurance that no data or information about what my child does ever goes to Google or anyone outside the school. If my child uses a Google Drive account or gets assigned a Gmail account, I want that account to be locked down tight so that nothing or nobody at Google ever has access to information contained in them.   A Chromebook without...
January 20th, 2015 is going to be an EPIC day. That should be the day Apple announces their holiday quarter earnings and we find out just how badly they killed it this season.   And a few days before/after we're going to see just how badly Samsung did trying to sell phones in the middle of an iPhone 6 hurricane.
What's really funny about OS share is the Android Developer Dashboard. They always post results for the previous 7 days, but haven't updated their chart since Nov 3rd. I guess they don't want to show a chart where Lollipop isn't registering (since Google doesn't show any version under 1%). Which makes me wonder when will Google decide to start updating their chart again.
I'm curious which province you live in. To be paying a combined rate of 40% you must live in the Atlantic provinces and/or be making 6 figures plus.I make just over 100K and my combined provincial/federal is around 27%. Still a good chunk, but a lot lower than 40%.
 Bullshit is what I just read. Nobody expects when you buy something cheap it will perform as good as something expensive. I can go to The Keg for a steak and I know it's going to be good. If I go to McDonalds and get an "Angus Burger" I don't expect it to taste as good as my Keg steak. However, I have the right to eat at both restaurants and not get a case of food poisoning or ingest e-coli. You don't seem to be able to grasp the difference between a customers right to...
  I had a similar thing happen this past weekend. My daughter got invited to a sleepover with friends from school (12 year olds). She asked if she could bring her iPad along so I checked with the parents of her friend to see what they were planning and if it was OK. The father said sure, since his daughter had a tablet and they could play games. At this time I also asked for a birthday gift suggestion as my daughter didn't know what to buy her friend. Since we were talking...
 No, they are absolutely victims. If I buy a cheap Windows PC I don't expect it to have an SSD, dedicated graphics card for gaming or 16GB of RAM. I KNOW it's a bargain PC. But what I don't expect to get is a PC with existing back doors or other security issues. When I buy a new PC it doesn't come with Windows 98, ME or XP. When you buy a cheap Android tablet, it actually DOES come with the equivalent of Windows 98, ME or XP installed. And to make things worse, it comes...
 Click bait? Hardly. I know there are lots of cheap Android tablets and you get what you pay for: slow processor, no access to Google Play, lousy screen quality, poor build quality and terrible service/support. These are things I expect from ANY bargain priced electronics. But to find out they come brand-new with unpatched security holes and even back doors is news to me. This story is anything but click bait - it's highlighted something I was previously unaware of.
That's a lot of Android door stops and coasters they're selling.
I like all the Fallon/Timberlake ads. Light hearted fun that still highlights features.
