Self-serving manipulation by Comcast. Just like when Microsoft wants to brag about Windows' marketshare, they call the Mac a "rounding error," but when Microsoft needed to defend itself against allegations of abusing monopoly power (back in 1998-2001, when there was serious discussion about breaking up MSFT), it cited the Mac as evidence that there was "competition."
More anal-ing from anal-ysts. Why doesn't Apple bring back the eMate 300 while we're at it?
Crap. There's already a long line for that.
Don't worry, there are plenty of logical fallacies that can be applied to insuring that Android wins every time.
Cue the "It's easy to avoid viruses: just buy your apps only from Google's walled garden." You know what I'm talking about.
Perhaps Comcast might just be echoing rumors.
LOL. Is that you, Peter Bright? And did you touch yourself when you said that?
If Microsoft wants tech that is invisible, they first need to solve two problems: 1) Windows doesn't work like that, and 2) Microsoft's reliance on Windows to extend their hegemony over people. The problem with Microsoft tech is that it is the opposite of invisible: it's unruly, tasteless, and demands that you, the user, solve basic problem. As a Windows user, not only do I see "the man behind the curtain" (from The Wizard of Oz), but I have to fix everything that's wrong...
LOL. Don't plug in your device to a different USB port on the hub, because if you do, Windows will search for drivers all over again!I've also had Windows 7 take literally 5-6 minutes to finish installation of HID devices (using standard HID drivers that were already freakin' built in to Windows). What's more annoying? Windows forgets the device and I have to suffer through the wait again. The device was a Logitech presenter (wireless clicker for PowerPoint), which appears...
Mostly. Most people fall into the lottery tier, but what Apple doesn't publicize is that there are other tiers, like a VIP group--seats reserved for important or influential people. How so I know this? I don't. I'm speculating. But I know a high-level someone from a Fortune 500 company who was invited in by Apple after WWDC had sold out in a previous year. And I'm sure seats are held for Apple executives and their "plus ones."
