I would love to have a Microsoft Surface RT because the hardware has gotten good reviews. I just wouldn't use the OS. I would put Ubnutu on it. The only problem is that I haven't found any videos where someone has done this successfully with RT or the Pro. Apparently Microsoft has locked it down. Even with the UEFI handled on the Pro it isn't possible. If anybody knows of a video of someone successfully putting a different OS onto an RT let me know here.
Even though Apple let the publishers set their own prices, the agreements they had to sign forbade publishers from selling the same product elsewhere or allowing their other outlets, such as Amazon, to sell their products for less money. That is price fixing. If Apple even hinted at prices they hoped the sellers would select, that would mean they were colluding with the others to set a price at a certain level.
It might be fun to watch Richard Stallman read this article aloud and hear his comments. He's got some good ideas and great principles with the exception of sharing. Sharing can become piracy and is wrong when it takes away money from the author or developer of something that isn't freely given away by them. I think he's nuts on that point.   Both free software and proprietary software need to exist. They can and do exist together. They both are advancing the world...
It's a great time for Firefox OS to debut. Ubuntu for phones and tablets is near too. This malicious code must be from the NSA. Who else would create such an application?
Apple Insider; if you're going to link to videos you should be sure the videos on those pages work. The ad was not funny to me. Perhaps there is a cultural meme in the ad that is not understood by Americans. I understood the premise of the ad just not the humor.
This type of education is nearly ideal. It allows everybody to learn at their own pace. The smart children will zoom through the courses with better understanding. They won't be held back by the needs of the others. The slow children will be able to grasp the material fully because they aren't being rushed through it. The quality of the lessons and the way they are presented will be a huge factor in whether they are effective. The main piece of the learning puzzle will...
In another thread about this ad I was chastised because I said the ad was really bad and pointless. Now a testing agency finds that it tests far below average. So to those of you who claimed you knew better than me, it seems you really don't know about writing advertising copy or creating effective video advertisements. Your clients must not come back for repeat business or perhaps they don't know that you aren't making effective ads for them. I'm in the internet...
There must be tens of thousands of people who own Microsoft stock. When will they get a clue that this company isn't being run very well?   Even if Ballmer is the blame for the way the company is managed, getting rid of him won't get rid of the software problems. Engineers made that stuff and for whatever reason they can't find a way to make their OS easy to use and coherent. A friend of mine is regularly frustrated that her old XP machine and her Windows 7 machine...
Yes. Look at how well the Chinese people are doing at Foxcon without a union.
What else is it about then? No products were talked about or promoted. Slow motion images of people using computer products were shown as a calm soothing voice talked about life and how Apple makes things to give a good experience. Then the line "Designed by Apple in California" appears. This ad is promoting Apple not a product. Ultimately Apple sells products. Maybe they hope people will see this and buy some Apple stock. If they're selling Apple then that's the way to...
