Half of Japan is radioactive. I wouldn't buy anything there that I couldn't quickly move offshore. Since patents and designs can be easily moved Apple should keep everything up to date and in the USA. If they needed to they could duplicate the hardware in the USA.   According to several scientists if there is another explosion at the Fukushima plant while they are repositioning the spent fuel rods and the unused fuel rods (which is estimated to take almost three years...
If I were a software engineer I would love to be courted by companies who wanted my services. As a person with some skills (no matter what they are) I sell my work for money. I work to get money to live my life. I don't live to support some conglomerate and their profits. Any agreement a company made to stifle my life and my ability to earn money would be an act of aggression toward me. It would be a betrayal. If I worked for a company that I liked and they did all they...
I really would like to know why Apple or even Google aren't interested in creating an equal or superior office suite. If they did that they both would sell more products. This whole concept just blows my mind that they wouldn't do this. Apple had bootcamp but that was limited to only the people who would bother to buy a Microsux license and install it on a different machine. Google has just contracted to have an interface created so people can use Office on their...
The advantage is for the manufacturer. Apparently they don't believe Windoz is a strong enough reason for people to buy that product. They are adding Android because half of the people in the world could use it and will be familiar with it. If such a product could share files between OSes then that might make it interesting for some people. I can share files between my Mac and my HP running GNU/Linux which makes life easier.
This is old but it's a start for understanding how Windoz sort of works: "Why I Hate Microsoft" http://www.vanwensveen.nl/rants/microsoft/IhateMS.html .   I didn't write this but I've read the whole thing. Pick any chapter and start. You might read about how Microsux operated in the business world. I doubt that anything Google has done to date with hardware manufacturers would compare to this.
I owned Vista. Isn't that a good enough explanation? If Vista were a car it would have been recalled and junked. Since it wasn't a car, Microsux got to rip-off millions upon millions of people and waste years worth of productivity around the world. Microsux knew then and still knows about the flaws in their Windoz OS yet they continue to sell it as is. That is a criminal enterprise. It is deliberate. I refuse to give any more funds to that company or use their products,...
Apple does allow the use of Microsux Windoz on their machines with Bootcamp. Apple isn't designing a computer to be sold running Windoz. Windoz isn't included with the purchase of any Apple product. The user must purchase Windoz separately. There is a difference. What ASUS could do is offer a download of their version of Android to people who could then load it onto their machines as a dual boot. If they can make it work well then good for them.   Would ASUS be able to...
This is so stupid looking. I agree that it reminds me of the movie The Thing as it morphs into other things. I really hope that this isn't given final approval for creation. What would Jony Ive say about this? Tim Cooks taste is in his mouth.
When I typed "I would still like to own one..." I meant that I would like to own the computer and run GNU/Linux. I would not ever run Windoz. If this is so then Microsux really doesn't care about profit at their stores. The $229 price is what Dell charges for the Android version on their site. This would also give manufacturers another reason to dislike Microsux because they are undercutting them. What is the real cost of buying brand recognition and market share? Google...
   When I read this story I first thought that Microsux was finally willing to compete by getting off of its high horse. Then I read it was only for the lower priced machines. The lowest priced tablet with Windoz on the Dell site is $299. This must be totally about Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. ASUS is selling a Chromebox this month for $179 with the same internal parts as the $199 Acer Chromebook. HP has some Chromebooks that don't cost much more. Toshiba in March will...
