The End Is Nigh, I mean Nought, I mean Nigh.......hmmm, check back in a few hours......
HP used to be a great name, great product. Then they got into the PC and printer business and....well, they are banned from my workplace.
Bad article. A true half ass attempt at reporting something.
Yes, but this one is new, big, and buggy. A prime target.
Not a good idea. They still have Windows 8 and all of it's spawns. Something will have to be done with all those MS tablets that are not being sold. Xbox 1 just coming out, how will that fair this Xmas?
I would in the least wait to see what decisions this new overlord will offer before blindly buying.
How does the song go, "meet the new boss, same as the old boss"
Just when you thought it was safe......
Sounds great, until they get bored with it and goes the way that many other googles projects, aka kills it off.
This is a double edged sword. On one hand, the postal service needs all the business they can get. Surprisingly, with all the online orders, a person would think that they would be in a surplus of delivery.
On the other hand, I despise anyone that makes people work on Sundays. Not being religious, but damnit, people need a day of rest and I don't think getting an item justifies someone working seven days a week. Also, I don't like the idea of any company dictating such terms.period.
Re: wow thats interesting
What's more wow is they still try
ALL the nice stuff......
Re: Maybe it's me...
Cowking, yeah, I can see some potential there, but I can also see in the middle of a paintball fight this thing scrolling a message pointing you to the nearest Walmart for all your paintball needs.
This is Halloween, not April fools day!
Somewhere in office, someone is digging through patents....
Tech god with an ego? Fucking numpty? So, if my response is not agreed with it comes to this? My points are still valid, and all the childish name calling won't change the fact that byod is simply opening the door wide open for this, and worse, to happen. Next time it does, try the name calling, see how far that gets you.
I didn't even bother reading the whole rambling of this article.
My stance, you got what you deserved.
BYOD is the worse idea or concept anyone can possibly do.
From a companies point, Your taking a high level risk to save money.
From the employees point, why would you spend your hard earned money on stuff they should be supplying? What's next, your car? your own pens and paper? your own toilet paper?
Hey, if your doing contract work, great. but...
If your a company, and that employee walks, he takes everything he is working on with him, on his device. Nothing you can do. This is just one simple scenario.
As an employee, you subject your equipment to their rules while under their employment.
I'm a strong believer in separating the workplace from home. Never bring your job home with you! It makes no sense, and I mean none, that every year we complain about these companies (how much ARE they making and how much are YOU seeing?) and they expect YOU to supply them equipment to make THEM richer.
Will never, never, never happen with me. If they think I need it, then it's on them, but not on my dime.
Don't say "hacker", say "reverse engineering".
Re: let's face it
You could remove "HP Services" and put "ADD NAME HERE" and the same could apply for many, many, many more companies.
Not a stab at MicroSoft, but, I never would have thought that I would see the day when there is not enough programs, or apps, for Windows, and Apple has more than anyone can probably count.
I disagree. Just because we have the technology for constant communication doesn't mean its being used as such. If anything, I find that people using these toys are very poor at communicating and hender the job at hand. It should not take 30 minutes for everyone involved pecking away to move forward. 5 minutes of face time gets a hell of a lot more accomplished.
Apple seems to think (correctly?) That money is to be made with hardware, apps, And entertainment media. Seems to be working so far. Get as many on the same OS for free and support would be easier. No comment on you know who, we see how that's working for them.
Very odd. This is ms own baby, not many out there and not many apps to install that could
Cause a problem. Hate to state the obvious, but ms REALLY needs to check into quality control.
If I loose my CC or some other type of representation of my money, I can have that account locked. period. I've even had some type of company call me questioning my transactions, representing the bank, and when I did not cooperate (because someone from india calling me asking me about my transactions is simply a red flag), THEY have disabled my account!
My point: There should be absolutely no problem at all with deactivating something as a petty phone. If this device is useless, thus worthless to a criminal, crime goes away.
I've no idea what they do with the, sell them on the black market to someone else is my guess. Only use for it would be in a "chop shop" for cell phones but those could be shut down the same way police shut them down for cars.
Wow. A 3.5g start button patch. How big were the free alternatives?
Re: @Taylor 1
At least we know what hygiene is!
It doesn't matter. These test, along with many, many others, have been going on for years, longer than I've been alive. NOTHING has ever come from them. NOTHING. Cancer patients are still being treated the same. Kill it by killing the body. If it works, great, you owe us big money. if not, you die and someone owes big money. no way in hell pharmaceutical companies are gonna try something as cheap a bag of weed. no F'ing way. If they do, it will be a joint that cost so much you'll have to sell your car for. and the line that separates them from a drug dealer on the street is is simple. If you pay US 100 times more for the same thing you get on the street, it's legal. If not, go to jail.
Sad, sad world.....
Balmers comment could be applied to using Windows.
Damn, going after the lawyers. Reminds me of the old joke about the Borg and Microsoft, or that comment in the movie Jason x.
I don't know what's worse, having the knowledge that this idiot of a man became so successful making some of the worst decisions ever or watching the people who actually seem to think highly of him.....
it will be a museum, where Iphones and ipads will be displays and sirii will speak of the life of steve jobs. children will flock in order to write reports for their history classes.
At one time, Mars had water and an atmosphere. No one knows where it went.
Earth has water, and an atmosphere, nobody knows where it came from. Theory is a comet.
Earth has a satellite, aka, moon, that was formed from the Planet Earth.
It was formed when a supposed object the size if "Mars" struck the planet Earth.
I've often wondered if Mars actually was the culprit, and most of the atmosphere was left on Earth after the collision. The Earth now has an atmosphere and a moon. Mars looses most of it's atmosphere to Earth, the rest is leached away as orbits settle.
Assume the "assumed" times of moon creation and Mars becoming a dead planet wrong for a second....
I wonder if we probed Phobos and Deimos if we would find their composition to be the same as that of Earth, the moon, Mars, or something else......
Two comments... or points to consider:
1- How much of my "code" is sent back to Google for their own personal use or to share with NSA and
2- How many products of Google remain in"BETA" stage, or get canceled once people start liking them?
Why was the butterfly visible?
It all sounds good.....on the surface. My question is how easy it will be to use these new "features" and what their limitations are. Is there a demo of 8,1 somewhere to try these?
Not bashing, but MS talks big but delivers small. People are wise to talk. they want to try it first. I'm with them.
Re: It's no joke
Being from the southeast, I'm very much aware of these pests. It's not all electronics they are interested in, but just some electrical and moisture. So, you could put a keyboard in the yard. They would never touch it. But a relay for , say a well motor, or an electrical outlet, and they swarm it. I don't know what the difference is between a wet computer verses an outlet, but there is and that's what they want. They especially are a problem in electronics for A/Cs and wells. They crowd the relay contacts (nothing else electrical in or around the area) and get crushed, preventing the relays from closing.
I deal with them the same way I deal with fire ants, I purchase a spray bottle of ant killer (Home Defense MAX) once a year and spray around all items (thus my multiple years of experience with them.) every 6 weeks.
All other electronics, my pump, salt water machine, lights, etc...... no problems. Relays and outlets..... it's like they are committing mass suicide.
I'm amazed, actually shocked, that with all the complaints against big businessabout products and security, people actually trust and use them for storage.
As with all things, if you don't want anyone else to see it, then why on earth put it in a "cloud"?
And keep in mind, the technology used to create these "clouds" is built by someone else, and that someone else would love to get their hands on others work to incorporate into their own. It's already been shown that certain companies can create backdoors into hardware they sell for "security reasons" which, as we've seen in the past, is exploitable.
And, like all things, companies are always looking to save a penny. It takes nothing for joe smoe in an office somewhere to convince his some VP that he can save the company millions of dollars over X time if it used brand Z product to build a cloud instead of the current brand Y. He gets a nice bonus while data is now less secure and subject to more downtime.
Or worse, the "cloud" you are using is based on some storage server or a "backup server" in a less than trustworthy location. every corp has some jackass that wouldn't give a second thought to getting a cheap "cloud" service just to put money in his/her pocket no matter what the name or location is.
No one has any idea what happens to their data once it's transmitted, where it goes, who sees what. And to sit somewhere for periods of time........
I'm amazed by the sheeple.
At current release intervals, they will be at FireFox 100 in what, a few years maybe?
Gotta admit though, it's better tha "gingerbread or some of these other names.
So, so wrong....
There are already places restricting them.
LOL. Trust me, anyone wearing something like this posing a threat....maybe in your neck of the woods.....here though.....again, LOL.
I can already see some idiot wearing this to a bar, maybe even trying to do a pick up....sad.
I can see someone getting punched in the face for wearing them.
Re: Lots and lots and lots...
I live on the East coast, and I welcome our new sex crazed overlords.
Doesn't matter. If they want your email, they'll look regardless. If there is something of interest, then they'll unofficially make copies first and request a search warrant. Once they have the search warrant, then they will "officially" look through the emails.
Simple rule of thumb, if you are doing something wrong, illegal or immoral, don't leave a paper trail. This is the 21rst century, with more rights to the crazies and control mongers, less rights for people wobbling in the lines.
Get your minds around it or do something about it. plain and simple.
Who is using what around you? Who is planning to buy what around you?
Again.... Everyone talks of an Apple or some sort of tablet running Android.
No mention EVER of MS.
Not a stab at MS, just basic facts.
If I ask people what their next automobile will be same results, different companies.
Is it me, or is anyone else getting fed up with all these "cute" names they come up with for an OS.
God knows what else.
When I here people talking now, I don't know if they are referring to a new OS version or something in the damn kitchen!
I MUST be getting old when stuff like this is deemed as cool and hip (Do people even say "cool" and "hip" anymore?).
2.3bn......... Never thought mice, keyboards, speakers, remotes....whatever else they dabble in, sold so much.
He would be right at home in Australia.
I would hate to be in middle management at sprint right now.
Still using an old obsolete Motorola flipphone here, entitled to a free upgrade for years, just can't see taking it though. I'm one of the few who use the phone.....as a phone. nothing else.
everyone in my family has Iphones and love them. I've given much thought (more than a sane person should) in upgrading to one, but one thing turns me off to that insanity, and that's Itunes.......
having a Nexus 7, I've had a taste of Android. nothing wrong, nothing bad, I just don't use it as much as I thought I would. So why would I need it on a phone?
MS needs to get rid of all it's employees with that kind of mentality, starting with Balmer. I'm fed up with this "We'll give the customer what we want and they will LIKE it!" attitude from big corporations.
A message has been sent about Windows Phone. Another sent about Windows 8, Still another with Office 365, on and on, etc, etc.......
How far does a company have to have sales slip before realizing they can't do it anymore?
Oh, and for Adam Orth, if he's a fool and quit, along with that attitude, he may soon find out what it means not to have lights, much less an "always on" internet connection.
