Re: @moiety

Actually @jake, that's Alzheimer's, named after the psychiatrist/neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer who first described the condition.

Amazon wants me to WEAR NAPPIES?! But I'm a 40-something MAN

Montreal Sean

Re: Cloth nappies FTW

We tried cloth nappies with our first son, 5 years ago. Really, we did. We were pro-planet, cloth is better for baby, who cares about the initial cost because we save money in the long run parents.

But, he would soak the nappies and any clothes he was wearing at the time.

That doesn't sound too bad, except he did this almost hourly. Even with the extra inserts and the "waterproof" cover.

Disposable worked out cheaper because with them we managed to keep our sanity.

Microsoft wields turkey knife, slices Surface to $199 for Black Friday

Montreal Sean

Re: I'd certainly get a surface....

Let me get this straight...

You'd spend $200 to put Android on a Surface for what reason? To spit in Microsoft's face? "Ha ha! Look at me I put a real OS on your tablet!" ?

Microsoft doesn't care, they alreay have your money, they got more than they thought they'd get from you.

If you want Android, there's a tonne of devices out there.

If you want IOS, Apple has you covered.

I don't understand the whole "if it had Linux/Android on it I'd buy it" comments. Microsoft is flogging their OS on their devices, why would they make devices to run competing OS' on?

HP’s ENORMO-SLAB: The Slate 21 MONSTER tablet

Montreal Sean

@AC at 13:15

Yes, Android and IOS can inspire awe during use.

Oh wait, you meant it's unpleasant to use? Well, that would be "awful" then.

Sound similar, means two different things though.

It's a good thing the estate at the tip of Georges Road doesn't have a fountain in the back yard.

BlackBerry flings John Chen $89 MILLION to save troubled firm

Playbook

The Playbook was a nice tablet, it's too bad it was doomed from the start.

My Nexus 7 kicks it's ass when it comes to performance - and it damn well should as it's a couple of generations newer - but there's something about the Playbook's UI that I prefer to Android.

It's also way more solid and stands up to abuse better than pretty much any tablet I've seen, apart from Panasonic's Tough model...

I still think that the Playbook method of swiping inwards from the edges to access menus, keyboard, running applications (which run even while in the background) is superior to Android's (almost) always present task bars.

To each their own though.

Canadian Vultures shave bare for winter

Re: Braver than I...

As a Montrealer, I find having a shaved head is better in the winter.

So much easier with the tuque, no messy tuque head when you get to the office.

Mind waiting for compute jobs? Boy, does the cloud have a price for you!

Montreal Sean

cheap cloud servers

I just picked up a cloud server for $35 CAD, one-time fee for a lifetime access.

Specs are low though, one Xeon CPU @2.7GHz, 512MB RAM, 10GB fibre-channel disk, 100Mbps connection with 500GB transfer/month.

Not sure what I'm going to do with it though.

IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE! Google's secretive Omega tech just like LIVING thing

Re: Won't they just take to sulking in basements?

You should upgrade to the Joo Janta 300, they respond faster and also pipe soothing music into your ears.

Mine's got the hardcover collection in the pocket. It's why I limp. :)

BYOD for our staff? 'Career limiting' move, says Dell exec

Montreal Sean

Re: Entrenched and defensive

They aren't saying "Don't buy our competitor's kit."

They are saying "Don't bring it to work with you."

If I were a manufacturer I wouldn't want my employees bringing competitor's kit to the office. I wouldn't care what they used outside of work, as long as they aren't wearing my company's ID.

Re: Intelligence!

While free wi-fi access to the info is commendable, it ignores the fact that many of these people can't afford the smartphone or computer to use the wi-fi.
