US government offering a treadmill instead of stoping

IMHO this is just the US government showing the world that they refuse to stop no matter what you do and saying "here's a treadmill to run on..."

The US Government wont stop spying on the people in the US no matter what they do to stop it, so why would this same Government stop for anyone else?

Cheap Chinese Metals?

It wouldn't surprise me if the Chinese manufacture used a poor quality cheap amalgam with low amounts of copper for the cords' internal metal wire. It's a known common practice with cheap Chinese manufacturing. It would surprise me if Microsoft failed to look out for this or worse, knew it and looked the other way.

I'd like to thank the creators of Debian for getting so excited about systemd. NOW, can it please be put back in the oven and left there and not used again until it's done.

Microsofts' non competitive monopoly tactics suck. What sucks even more is that the US Gov is looking the other way and allowing this sh*t.

Ban internet anonymity – says US Homeland Security official

tempemeaty
WTF?

Can't go well...

I've seen the way people attack each other on internet forums and get savagely over emotional about the littlest things. If one could find the other there would be a hate crime. Multiply this by the number of forums on the web and we'd have an explosion of stalkers and hate crimes on Armageddon-like levels across the US. It's anonymity that's been keeping the peace...

Odd how these kind of failures force us into using the browser based means instead. My gut is telling me that failures like this are meant to. It's a way of making the world a more cloudy place by design.

Baby Birds

All the hardware companys' income is so dependent on McDoodysoft they can't survive without that mama bird. At this point my new name for all the CEOs of all the PC hardware companies is "Baby Birds" who will never fly on their own. This is the nest they made by doing nothing for their independence. So all these CEOs are now just Baby Birds...

Well, it's not like Apple can do any better...

You can't really expect more from Apple these days. This is the best they can do with OSX and still keep up with their release schedule. I wished Apple would do better but I don't think they want to. I don't even think they can.

Re: Curse you, McAfee!

Yes. The level of how much I detest BOTH Adobe and McAfee for this can not be measured on any scale in the known universe. I recently was had when I was sure I had ALL the install boxes unchecked as well.

This is an absolutely CERTAIN way to wreck any computer which already has another brand of Anti Virus software on it. It's an incredible irresponsibility on the part of Adobe to include McAfee in the install at all.

Quantity over Quality...?

The frequency of each reiteration of their OS has been a compromise in the overall quality that is negatively affecting their users experience. I sincerely hope that Apple reconsiders it's desires for a new OS on a yearly basis. They could just release a new featured theme for it once a year and a more thoroughly debugged OS once every two years. This way they could increase the compatibility between versions, improve security and provide a user experience more in step with the quality expected of products under the Apple name.

Yahoo! Can! Pound! Sand!

Yahoo actually forced me to avoid them a while back. Their account screw-ups just got to be to much and their email became unreliable. It began when they tinkered with their servers and made my email inaccessible intermittently for a time. After that they introduced a double authentication thing which locked my account for the new double auth. The double auth failed so I gave up on my email account. Then I found Yahoo demanded my cell phone number just to create a new email account as well. Hell no you can't have my cell phone number! It's crap like this that makes enemies out of it's past users and Yahoo is doing a damn good job of it.

Apple will reveal new iPhone on Sept 9 – this is what it may look like

My theories of what new features & updates will be revealed

Siri will be able to predict your future. =P

iPhones will be able to call UFOs.

All iPhones will be bendable because of new flexible logic boards.

All iPhones will also be able to bounce like Flubber.

All iPads and iPhones will get full recharges by dipping them in water. [What? They get thirsty too!]

All iPhones will come with a free gorilla. (congrats to the winner of that new 6Gb Hard Drive!)

All iDevices will have built in 3D printing and come with the template to print your own 3D Apple Pony.

All iDevices will include a special build of OS9 that can transport you to a new reality.

And finally, all iPads will have the ability to unfold into a full sized iMac.

" i " is for Indignant

Updating to Yosemite will only break most my software. That has happened enough now, so Apple's just screwed me "royally". Being they are the biggest and richest company on the planet, you can't blame failure to secure even one version back on the lack of funds. It just means Apples' Leadership are acting like indignant ass hats. (just my dirty rotten disgruntled 2 cents)

WANT!

I like this!

This is EVERYTHING I want in a modern portable. It even has "TWO!" USB ports. I can use my, two USB connector, external dvd burner/player with this! Apples' one USB port offerings ended my hopes of going with their latest thing. This gives me hope that there is life after Apple. The only thing that's kept me in Apple land was their OS but lately they've burned their bridges to their customers in that department too.

Damn, I want to get this and see how it goes with one of my favorite versions of GNU Linux...

Get root on an OS X 10.10 Mac: The exploit is so trivial it fits in a tweet

tempemeaty

Apple it's all about their attitude...an impractical one

The lessen I've learned from Apple is that if you can't order your Mac with the RAM option maxed out then you shouldn't order one at all. Over the life time of the machine you are going to be forced to upgraded the OS versions many many times to keep security.

You also need to have the money to re-purchase your third part software repeatedly to stay compatible.

If you can't do these things. If they are impractical for you(sometimes it's not just money). Then it's best to not buy a Mac at all.

Hardware manufactures futures in Microsofts hands...

"...will pick up once Windows 10 ships at the end of the month."

I recall a Chinese company in the manufacturing supply chain for PC hardware saying, effectively, the same sort of thing. That they trust Microsoft to save them just before the Windows 8 debacle. Do NONE of these hardware manufacturing desk pilots get it? If they don't take control of their own future they wont have one.

If they don't find a way to get another good OS (x86) on the market the lack of competition there is going to sink the whole ship. The competition, believe it or not, will even help Microsoft.

My worthless 2 cents...
