Perfect Windows kind of thing to have. Yet another hip technology add-on, probably by abstraction layer, ignoring the native GUI (for that added pile of inconsistency you get from non-native apps), in an environment of vb/java scripting, workarounds, monolithic data structures, abstraction layers, competing APIs, services, plugins, and infinitely unpredictable interaction with other systems. Reeks of desperation, but it's definitely Windows. Actually, my description above...
Planned obsolescence and systemic obsolescence are pretty much the same thing in the electronics world. There are pros and cons to making things not be backwards compatible, but it's definitely an environmental negative.
I know a guy that buys gadgets as they come out, always superseding one with the next, who ends up with piles of gadgets hanging around his living space. I'm not remotely like that. I have no disposable income, so the only things that are disposable to me are tissues and toilet paper. I use things till they're unusable, recycle every material I can separate, and even take my electronics to electronics recyclers.
Yay. Another anticompetitive corporate buyout. These are always beneficial to consumers and never at all harmful to them. /s
Have they made the trackpad drivers not suck yet? Is there something seriously different about Windows low level system i/o that makes it impossible to code the drivers for the track pad in such a way that operating it on Windows is even remotely comfortable and similar to how it behaves in Mac OS ? I know, I know, I hate Windows, but jeeze, you'd think it wouldn't be impossible from an engineering standpoint, even in Windows. If it's impossible, Microsoft deserves this...
Shhhhh... Such people like moving the goal posts and retconning. If they didn't re-define reality now and then, they'd have a harder time mocking lefties, liberals, hippies and other evil communist scum. How dare these socialists try to bring manufacturing and jobs back into the USA...
That's the only way manufacturing is coming back into the USA. It's not that Americans don't want to work. American companies don't want to pay employees, nor give them any kind of benefits. Robots it is. That's eventually how most manufacturing should be everywhere, though, realistically. Re-train the working populous to do different tasks. (Another thing American corporations don't want to do)
It has nothing at all to do with Americans not wanting to work in factories or workers not wanting to make televisions. It has everything to do with the American companies exporting manufacturing to other countries to lower their manufacturing costs in order to increase their profit margins, and failing to be competitive in features and pricing when imported televisions from non-American companies got into the American market.This was active participation by American...
No, what you don't understand is that these people are fed up with watching short sighted Wall Street bastards dictate the actions of companies by way of a stake that is based on nothing but stock and the greed to utilize it to stockpile yet more wealth, rather than actually giving a damn about the company, its products, and its customers. The outrage is clearly based on Icahn's greed-focused domineering behavior, not on his so-called investment smarts.
Unwanted sleep patterns? You mean living in a country that believes sleep doesn't matter to human health? The country where the phrase "a lack of sleep never killed anyone" (which is false) is the automatic corporate response to employees suffering lack of sleep due to their employment hours and stress. The country where they throw drugs at you which destroy quality of sleep instead of solving the problem (the problem is lack of deep sleep, not getting unconscious). The...
