Re: How many of Facebook's "one billion" are …
Sooo, wrong. A good parent will keep a young person off FB. The anonymous teasing, put-downs and outright bullying are to ever present. Seen it too many times. My only slightly chubby 11 year old hears it too much in person. I'm not opening her up to that pain on that horrible site.
Who sells them, though?
We were recently shopping for new phones for the kids. Three Verizon stores (albeit in central Oregon) don't carry WinPhone of any sort. I asked why and they said with shrug "too many customer service issues". One guy said they just take up wall space from the items that sell.
This was admittedly a small sampling but Oregon's tech heavy but if they don't sell to the point where three stores don't even carry them. That's a problem.
Network drivers is I think what he means
At least that's what I mean. Countless times I've had to install Windows and get cd or usb and download the nic driver on it. It's ridiculous since I've been booting up Linux for 10 years and connecting right to a network. Only today, with corporate wireless was Windows 7 ready to connect to the internet.
Bang-Bang. This nasty fella comes looking for the Children because the Queen can't stand children. They sneak away from Benny Hill's basement if you can imagine that.
@Ian But an 'Illegal" monopoly?
I don't believe there's actually anything wrong with being a monopoly if you don't do it illegally. If they don't coerce the action to use the product like Microsoft did to PC companies with regards to the OS and tying the browser into the OS, then it's not illegal. Not really Google's fault everyone uses their search engine other than quality returns.
I would wait to see if there's a technical or competitive reason Google prevents WP7 from accessing YouTube APIs.
You need zune to update?
Huge reason to go with Android - I don't need a computer to update my phone's system. Can't run iTunes or Zune on Linux and wouldn't even if I used Windows.
What a pile.
