Read the books by psychiatrist Kay Redfield Jamison. They can be purchased in iBooks. Use the suicide of Robin Williams to learn something rather than parading your ignorance as a badge of honor.   Ignorance of mental health issues which lead to substance abuse and suicide is not somebody's fault. William's clearly was not just having a couple of downer days. Manic Depression, which Williams likely had, can be controlled for most, but for some, the treatments do not work. 
It runs Windows 8. That is not a selling point.
Everything depends upon how the technology will be used. What I'm absolutely certain of, however, is the almost zero teachers, administrators, school districts have a clue what role, if any, any tech device should have. In the hands of school districts and administrators and teachers, there is no doubt in my mind that use of tech is and will remain a distraction and certainly not incorporated as a useful object to help students learn. The software currently available,...
According to the July 31 transcript, the 14nm process is not expected to ramp to full production until then end of 2015 for external customers. To my mind, Samsung has lost its way. Samsung talks of balancing production of their components based on market conditions and having the flexibility to change what the lines are producing. Samsung does not know where the 14nm production lines will be -- in Korea or Austin? Samsung is reacting to market conditions and competition...
Bugs are bugs and all software has them. So, this is not a story about a security flaw in Android. It's a story about multiple OSes named Android with some common code over which Google has no ability to patch when the inevitable flaws are discovered. Android buyers wanted cheap and choice. Some wanted open source and freedom to operate the android devices based upon their perceived needs. Many simply wanted anything non-Apple. There is a balance and there are costs to...
No. The subsidies can still exist. The phone companies were never subsidizing the phones, they were not detailing the loan agreement between them and the customer. Congress has done nothing of significance except change the line items on your phone bill. Now, the question is did congress actually forbid some real subsidies? As someone associated with a large university, part of my bill is discounted by 15%. At one point a bill going through congress was said to have...
It's not as though wearables are a must have now (or ever). They are in the fetal development phase at best. Why would Samsung knuckle under to google if Tizen had any viability? It is likely Samsung does not have the software and design talent, and will not hire more experienced foreigners to get the job done. They are very late to the software engineering game, and likely this is holding them back. It's also possible it will cause them to fail.
The monetary amount is inconsequential. The damage from the legal precedent is irreparable. The Gov basically decided make Amazon the sole gatekeeper of all book publishing.
IBM then creates consumer version of their enterprise apps. Apple uses enterprise knowledge to add features to iOS
That has been true from the beginning. Nothing new here.
