Re: @Timmy B- If it won't run

Re: If it won't run

It has a desktop and a proper operating system. The type keyboards can be used by people that type all day - unless you don't include writing code all day. And it will allow external screens - not sure how many for sure but I have had two on a Surface 2 pro.

Obviously won't be sold to you as you have no clue

Thumb Up

I too have exactly the same model as reviewed. Excellent lappy. I'll be putting an SSD in there in a year or so but for now it's perfect for the money - the screen in particular. No Wi-Fi issues for me at all. All the usual suspects; Visual Studio, Photoshop, etc.. run just as you would expect.

Re: Are they going to sue over these (real) clocks also?

nope. Look at the picture. There is a number on each face showing. The one in question and the rip off (sure Apple will argue that one - prior art not mattering of course) don't have this.

Re: Skepticism does not mean doubt

Just because you appear to think doesn't mean that you are. What you think of as existence could be a vast AI construct.

Equally you haven't seen everything and one of the things you haven't seen may provide glaring evidence of some kind of deity.

These vague and unlikely things are 0.0000000000000001% certain to me, but that means with all honesty I cannot say there is no god and that I actually exist with 100% certainty.

ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. - Humans begin artificial CO2 emissions

Timmy B Silver badge

it's natural...

"Socializing around a camp fire might actually be an essential aspect of what makes us human" says the artice. We are animals exhibiting our natural behaviour. Therefore the CO2 output from what we do is perfectly natural and eventually nature will balance us out. The human population will crash eventually, be it plague, disaster, or massive global cooling or warming. But nature will sort us out. Why are scientists able to see that it's part of the natural cycle of things and then get all in a fuss trying to control that cycle.

Re: @Timmy B (Was: Why is it ok to be insulting to people at all?)

Did you read anything I said. I said it was a family member. Somebody I see every day. Somebody whose life I am involved in. Get offended when I insult a member of your family would you?

Hmmmmm, no "you are a dick" icon!

Re: @Timmy B (Was: Why is it ok to be insulting to people at all?)

Tendancy... some are different. It's a horrid thing that affects people differently. Sadly some ignorant people refuse to look further than a pettiness that has to insult, because the real truth is they need to feel better than somebody because they know they really are not better than anybody.

Why is it ok to be insulting to people at all?

So saying "fatties" in a way that is clearly designed to insult people is totally ok is it? Going to start using a whole load of insulting terms are we? Reported to editors as this is clearly wrong.

Btw - I'm not overweight but have family members that eat a perfect diet and exercise far more than me are overweight because of type 1 diabeties. So thanks for insulting them - you stupid childish fools.

Apple's 'App Store trademark': A farce of Jobsian proportions

Gates Halo

Why not....

Make don't MS make the abbreviation a bit longer and have the Appli Store. This would make is clear that Apple Store is not being abbreviated and negate Apples issue. Handily it'd also sound like "Appeley Store". I'd like to think that I'm running Appeleys on my (Android) phone!...
