Re: I dropped Kapersky because it is too hard to use.
Why would you make that statement anonymously?
I went to try Kaspersky, but went elsewhere when they required information (email) before being able to try it.

Update Win7 - > Win10
After Microsoft kills off the browser Edge, and replaces it with Chromium.
- Sorry. I’m just trying to light a fire under Microsoft, so they don’t procrastinate.
- Sorry #2. “Prevaricating" means "lying"
Used in a sentence: Our politicians are always caught prevaricating. (Works for both sides of the pond.)
You lost me on “Software is a branch of mathematics so software patents should be invalid”.
That means if you happen upon Microsoft’s source code, you could slap another name on it, and sell it for zxy and it would be perfectly legal. Until someone else does the same and undercuts you...
The “secret sauce” of almost all modern devices is the software. You take the protection away, and you’ll have economic chaos, and a free for all as everyone attempts to pirate (steal) from everyone else.
Data is also a form of mathematics, so is currency, DNA, etc.
I think they’d have a stronger argument using intellectual property theft. It’s probably been rewritten by now, but there were rumors of stolen Cisco code over a decade ago.
IP theft is at least “real” and ongoing...
I’d also like to see evidence of wrongdoing. I’m pretty numb to political rhetoric these days...
I need to call my lawyer, and sue every hard drive/storage manufacturer in existance... they never get the actual space available correct either.
Let’s see... 4K screens aren’t 4K either (it’s just a marketing gimmick).
Mountain Spring Water is tap water...
Politicians occasionally tell the true... but it’s usually on accident.
Microsoft switch to Chromium guts doesn’t negate their efforts to stop phishing.
It’s more like swapping out your cars engine, but keeping your premium tires.
The Edge browser of the future will still look for ways to differentiate itself. It won’t be Chromium with an Edge sticker slapped on it...
Laguna Beach streets are a freaking madhouse.
There are pedestrians and jaywalkers everywhere. It has some of the worst and most confusing streets in the nation. You’d have to be on drugs to enable autopilot there...
It’s also an extremely wealthy area. Probably a parent bought a Tesla for their stupid kid...
Did you just compare a car to a miniaturized electronic device?
I’ve seen tablets that have been repaired. The kits to repair them are garbage. The glass replacements are easily scratched and crack. They are no where close to OEM quality.
My nephew got a iPad glass replacement by a “professional” repair company.. the glass shifts around (because they didn’t use enough glue) and the audio port no longer works. You get what you pay for. With Apple you get your device back in mint condition.
I took one iPad that was nearing the end of its warranty into an Apple Store, it had a tiny scratch in the coating on the glass. They gave me a brand new one to replace it. No not a referb, but new (you can tell by the model).
People bitch about things they know nothing about...
You think Apple hasn’t done the math on the appropriate amount of glue to hold things properly together?
What a stupid commenter. I’ve actually owned IPads from the very first edition.
IPads are very very durable. I’ve exposed them to everything imaginable, and they’ve held up very well.
I’ve also owned android phones and a tablet. The tablet I sent back in the 1st week with a cracked screen... what a cheap piece on crap.
Maybe people should ask the actual owners of the devices (which overwhelmingly love them) than a company that gets paid to nitpick the stupidest things.
The news is Apple released their Premium iPhone 8, then the Super Premium IPhone X.
People bought the IPhone X regardless of the crazy cost vs. value proposition.
Apple went buy one, get one free, on the IPhone 8.
Apple sold slightly less IPhones, but had record profits. Poor Apple!
Now the people that didn’t buy the 8 or X are waiting for the newer models available later this year.
One of those, will be smaller and presumably cheaper, to soak up those that didn’t upgrade. And, a larger IPhone X that with be Super Super Premium.
The smaller “budget” IPhone will probably keep the TouchID.
People act like Apple is DOOMED, and then Apple has record profits again.
Personally, my IPhone 6s is fine. At some point I’ll upgrade to the “budget” IPhone SE.
You have a right to bare arms, but a handgun, hunting rifle, or shotgun fulfills that right just fine.
Civilians do not need automatic, or semi-automatic weapons, any more than they need grenade or rocket launchers, etc. Those are weapons of war...
If you served in the military, reserve, police, etc. those are exceptions. Presumably any/all of those have extensive training, but that doesn’t mean they need 15 AR-15s. If dishonorably discharged that’s obviously a NO.
Background checks are common sense. Not checking if someone has committed a violent crime, or has serious mental health issues is crazy.
If you’re an adult (18) you can buy a gun. Pushing it to 21 makes no sense...
Instituting a “cool off” period between buying the gun, and receiving the gun makes sense.
The NRA has its place in training and certification. But, the NRA’s stance is undeniable because they’re trying to support their most hardcore members, rather than making America safer.
Having teachers armed is a bad idea, they don’t have suitable training. If they’ve served in the military or reserve - great. Have them get a concealed carry license.
There is only one possibility: Kopi luwak
Most Expensive Coffee in the World
It has been produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called then palm civet or also civet cat. This is the reason kopi luwak is also called cat poop coffee or civet cat coffee. The feces of this cat will be collected, finished and sold as kopi luwak.
The good thing is the battery (apparently) is external to the ear canal, but if the guy was asleep (for example) it could have been nasty.
But not as nasty as when e cigarettes explode. Those are a major safety hazard, and should be banned.
Really no small lithium-ion device should be close to our face. Phones at least are designed to protect the batteries, and are large enough to do a fairly good job. Plastic (or thin metal) gadgets don’t maintain enough rigidity to be safe...
