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. I know that is what, in part, is killing Apple right now. It was only because of the constant threat of failure looming over their Board's heads if they stopped Steve's ideas that kept Apple awesome when it was when under Steves control.
Best of luck to all at Dell and their head man Mikey. ❤️
It's nice to be royalty...
"Do not interact with Ginni or the group unless they approach you first. This means no selfies, no bathroom run-ins, elevator pitches, or water fountain soirees. If you happen to be in the same area, keep it professional and courteous," the email stated.
This stinks of, the surfs must not approach the royals...else they well be beheaded...,or some such...
Oops...to late? I think Apple just burned the last bridge completely
I think I'm totally done with Apple. This feels is so weird. It's actually reached the point where I'm afraid to buy anything from Apple now.
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.
No idea if what I just said means a d@mn thing but it just came to mind so there it is fwiw...
Re: The ongoing ruthless take backs.
"Yeah they don't want anyone finding out about the hidden NAZI Bunker on the Moon, with the Three Monoliths just down the hall, and to the left."
You forgot the "Tin Foil Hat" reference. ⎝(｡◁ﾟ)⎠ᕕ(ᐛ)ᕗ
The ongoing ruthless take backs.
NASA, for a long time now, has been pretty ruthless in taking back every bit of moon dust and rocks that were given to people. It's so ruthless and unnecessary that I can't help but wonder if they are hiding something.
Re: I concur with those above!
"Oh yeah, it was recommended (maybe still is) that you reinstall Windows every year (six months?) so that programs run fast and fluid."
Sad that a modern OS doesn't stay running well without having to do that, isn't it? (•́_•̀)

"well, if you're going to HAVE to re-install something..."

How much more over complicated can they make the %$#@ing thing!?
This is so farking over teched it's starting to get scary as hell.
That winged Money Pit™️ just keeps on getting deeper...
I trust nothing Jack Dorsey touches...
Jack will probably do to the same thing he does with Twitter. Get the world dependent on it then if you are to conservative or to white cut off your access with poor to no excuses.
So what antivirus programs are the Windows 10 updates tested with?
We should take a poll if Apple will say you're typing it wrong...
Apple's ability to ignore issues with it's products and punt their customers to the curb is legendary. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Best of luck to all those who bought the thing. ❤️
Phone Number Grab Coming?
I think Jack is just going to use the opportunity to make you give him your phone number. Do you trust his civil war calling ass with your phone number? I don't.
Apple grounds AirPort once and for all. It has departed. Not gonna fly any more. The baggage is dropped off...
Then in 2020...
...Apple goes 100% iPhone-fondler, gives up on Mac and throws it out the door without a parachute...
$700 keyboard !?
Nice message to the workers.
I'm glad I don't work at that company.
Russian Bot here...I'd like to comment on that...
They have to talk all about how it was "Terrorists" now because their mountain of, "it's Russian Bots Bull Crapola" didn't work. As one of the thousands of Americans who Twitter closed accounts on for being a "Russian Bot", I'm not letting them get away with it. Jack Dorsey and his Twitter Generals are all about "Censorship". I don't think we should let them squirm out of their mountain of "Russian Bot" BS so quick...
I would just like to thank Microsoft...
...for the ongoing entertainment. It's okay. I understand. It's to hard for a multi-billion $ company to have to keep it's own services working. * pats Sat Nad's head *
"Death by a Thousand Patches"
Ack! No no no no no Microsoft. Never ever follow my comments as though they were suggestions. Please...STAWP...
Oh well. ¯\_(シ)_/¯
Re: Death by a Thousand Patches
"...the only good news being that Redmond *and* Cupertino both get taken out by a pair of 9 megaton yield SLBMs in the first ten minutes. Karma's a b*tch!?
Death by a Thousand Patches
I don't think the modern world will end with an asteroid hit. It will all come to an end with a Microsoft Windows Patch...
I'm just going to sit here and calmly watch it all end...with my favorite beverage in hand...
Youtube's anti-freespeech stance is sad
With Youtube's management playing the game of monetization keep-away and banning on the basis of a leftist agenda, it's no longer relevant.
I think the newer platforms like Gab.ai and Pewtube are more fun.
Third World in weird a way
I've sometimes refer to the US as the worlds most powerful 3rd world country. Living here is getting scarier every day.
Facebook ... first take the plank out of your own eye...
Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Fire...
Of all the companies to come along and out innovate Microsoft, why did it have to be the Evil Empire of Google? ¯\(º_o)/¯ (;-_-)
I'll just leave this here...
Windows 10 Satanic.
Apple? Just Another Scorpion...
If Apple can perform a nice "Back Stab" like this I wouldn't be surprised if they cut other corners too. That compromises their customers data security.
Now that I finally have another PC and Linux back again. I can just not care anymore hopefully. It feels so empowering to not have one of the many backstabbing scorpions in Silicon Valley as my sole OS maker/maintainer now.
Go ahead Apple. Show the world what Silicon Valley's tech corps really are...
All I know...
...is when going from OSX to macOS, High Sierra has had me in shock repeatedly with all the bugs I've had to deal with. I've never been so livid over software issues on anything before.
At this point, I honestly don't think Apple can make a sensible minimally acceptable quality software. Having finally acquired another PC and using Linux Mint, the DIFFERENCE is STUNNING. The Latest Linux feels like OSX used to. This was an act of desperation to get everything I need to do off my Mac. With the introduction of High Sierra, my faith in Apple software has been shattered.
Skype is garbage anyways
After having been forced by Microsoft to upgrade anyways, I can't believe how much worse Skype has gotten. It's amazing it's so bad. I'm in shock Microsoft would hang their name on this software. It blows me away any organization release to the public software this buggy.
You are 100% correct. I was once in sales. In sales we used to call this technique, "the power of the take-away". When people are on the fence with a purchase, all you have to do is "suggest" the chance of buying it is at risk and they knee-jerk react to buy.
This tells me a lot about Apple and how it manipulates customers.
Floater or a sinker?
I guess we now know which of the two Twitter is...
...and I thought people would have flushed that leftist, activist, NWO hugging, dishonest, terrorist protecting, genocide promoting, censorship stinker by now.
...more forced Windows 10 installs.
Every action from Microsoft makes my hate for Microsoft, it's board, everyone running that organization, stronger and more pure.
To support such an individual?
Jeff Bezos is a whip master who drives his Amazon employees into the ground. Bribing Bezos into your city just says you support that behavior and are willing to do the same to your voters.
What's the nature of a scorpion?
Politicians are like scorpions. It's in their nature. This is what they will always do.
Who Is Telling You Everything Is Russians?
If the B.S. slinging major media a social media corporations can convince you that everything is Russians then they can make you believe anything they want.
Now THAT is how it's done.
I'm sick and tired of software released to meet a date, ready or not. If it takes to a rc15 to be ready then that's what has to be done. We could use a lot more Linus Torvalds.
"Version 3.0’s headline feature is the inclusion of “A significant number of Direct3D 10 and 11 features”. The outcome? Better graphics for emulated Windows applications."
Reg. WHERE'S A WIDE EYED SHOCK EMOTI? .... NEED. IT. NOW.
I have 3D things that must be tried...
* locks and blocks all doors and windows *
* will not be seen again for a long time *
Microsoft might want to start over
Before they forced the update to their all new one, everything was fine. Then they deactivated it, forcing us into using this new POS.
The new POS (Skype) is such a resource hog it's mind blowing. It brings my 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 & 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM computer to it's knees. Text lag when typing is literally 2-3 seconds.
I'm not going for the matches yet but...
Well this is sad news. Even their "excuse" sounds weak. They ruined OS 10.13.2 High Sierra too, I tried it. It's buggy as f**k. Useless. They might as well pour petrol on the whole company and drop a match on it at this point.
Death by a thousand cuts?
It's been a little theory of mine, that Mozilla leadership is actively sabotaging the browser and trying to make it look accidental.
The number of a human
All this is the same. It's reading biometric pattern data from the unique features of your head or hand and converting it into a repeatable number set.
Excuse me while I go outside and wet my string...
A wet salty string would explain my over priced, inconsistent, local Cox
cable string connection. LOL.
I've troubleshooted better ADSL services than this. ಠ_ಠ
Google could look into Youtube while they're at it ?
Google and their "Youtube" could use a little review as well. I have to wonder about their mysterious supposed "algorithm" (sic) and how they're withholding the conditions on how to not get "Demonitised" during a video's peak of ad revenue earning period. There HAS to be serious contract law issues there.
Better Idea for Redmond...
... spend the US$150m on building a new more modern OS instead. Apple did it. Microsoft wants to be like Apple right?
