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.

Quoted for truth

"For people like me being able to control my Apple device by voice can make or break my day. Apple just doesn’t seem to get that and it isn’t listening."

IMHO, listening to user's needs isn't one of Apple's strong points.

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...

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

Thank you for the enlightenment. Next time I'll try to remember that wanting an absence of politics is politics.

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...

ReactOS 0.4.9 release metes out stability and self-hosting, still looks like a '90s fever dream

tempemeaty

Re: Try out the UI

I think it's a benefit for the ReactOS team to built it. Dependence on a Linux Kernal for most things is close to having the only alternative to Windows being a kernal mono-culture. Mono-cultures can be dangerous in the long run.

Just my two cents. ¯\_(シ)_/¯

Ding dong! Dell about to go public again – report

tempemeaty

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. ❤️

Ex-Rolls-Royce engineer nicked on suspicion of giving F-35 info to China

tempemeaty

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...

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.

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".

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.
