TV piracy ring walks the plank after Euro cops launch 14 raids and shutter 11 data centres

Do the corporate Boards and CEOS want to...

...manufacture anything in America anymore?

NO amount of making conditions favorable for it in the US is going to get any results if they don't want to do it. Even worse, IMHO, they are more likely to lay off every American citizen they can to pressure America's citizens to put one of their more liberal Blue Bloods back in office...even if it crashes everything in the process.

Todays smart phone is yesterdays calculators

Calculators were as expensive as today smart phones. Now calculators can be found on hanging displays for $1.99. Even though the corporations are fighting to prevent that repeat of history it's the smart phones destiny.

Last December a prepay $69 Trackphone smart phone was marked down to $39 on my local supermarket's hanging display. Then the day before Christmas it was marked down to $19.99. Does it work? It's not top of the line but yes, it works. I know that because I bought it just to test it. The phones in the market are back to $69 now but it was the first serious plunge to the inevitable I've witnessed. I suspect they'll keep dropping in general over the years and you'll eventually see more basic landfill quality $29 smart phones on a regular basis when it finally bottoms out.

Nice to see it still evolving and growing.

Interesting. I hope the Surface Studio continues doing well. The one thing that would the next step beyond this would be a new MS OS built on a Unix kernal that makes even better use of RAM so the thing can really shine even brighter and kick ass on graphics rendering.

My story

I don't have any nostalgic computer history stories to tell about past computers. All I know is in the present time, the latest price hikes by Apple have pushed their products outside my budget so far that I may not be able to buy their stuff anymore. That is my story.

Re: Who cares?

@OGShakes

Well said. All the average every day people I've met are so completely lost with anything technical. They can't manage to to much more than turn electronic equipment on or off. When they get a virus or a driver stops working, they buy a new computer or just go without. Doing something like install an OS and/or learn new software is beyond most average peoples mechanical skills.

I've given up on the non-technical masses(most others). All I can do is administer to my own needs while the corporation produced world running on corporate produced OSes burns around me or collectively runs off a cliff.

Phones with services now just a lease

Now that all the carriers have made the phones gotten from them on contract a lease that you can't own, everyone I know is sticking to old phones and not changing anything. I imagine this "Carrier" contract change has a lot to do with new phone sales plummeting.

Thunderstruck: Azure Back in Black(out) after High Voltage causes Flick of the Switch

tempemeaty

I wonder if it's a warning?

What was it...a week or so ago Microsoft acted unprofessionally and threatened the growing social network Gab.ai with kicking them off Azure cloud service if they didn't censor two posts from two users of the social network? If Microsoft will pull the service out from under your business because they don't like one or two of your customers, that makes using Microsoft's Azure a unpredictable risk to any that might use them. Maybe God is finally warning Microsoft or Karma caught up with them...

I don't believe anything Apple does is worth looking at anymore

I think the mac mini was one of the best things they ever made. I thought so much of it I have one and love the little thing. That said. The macOS has become a POS that is more broken with each update. To make matters worse, Tim Cook is now using Apple for politically correct anti-conservatism censorship activism. Keep the politics to yourself a-hole. Apple's latest product is of poor quality, it's CEO is an activist and I wouldn't touch another iThing ever again. All I wanted was products. Products that just worked...

Just my two cents. ¯\_(シ)_/¯

I hope Mikey has a plan to deal with the things that Board members do to corporations that caused Dell's need to shed public status to survive.

1st Gen Swarm Tech?

It just occurred to me that the F-35 could be a thought of a first generation Swarm-Tech ™️ approach to piloted air fighter combat. They don't seem to be able to defend themselves individually. They need to operate in multiples to be effective because the technology works that way to get their (supposed) advantage.

If caught alone in the sky, it seems a F-35 vs Su-57 could possibly resemble that of a bee vs a hornet.
