Everyone wants Windows 10 to not suck. Windows 8 hurt every PC vendor on the planet. And out of the gate Microsoft is up to their old dirty tricks with…
So for me, the 3rd device is a nice to have, but not a must have. Maybe the next generation of iPads will have something that changes the game even more than they already have. But I'm still thinking that most developers and creators will be using Laptops for the foreseeable future. And probably not WIN 8 laptops.
Why does Microsoft think it's okay to do FORCED UPDATES on Windows? And then why so often to they get it wrong? I'm sure it's something I'm doing. Like using Windows at all.
Remember when Windows 95 shipped? It was a huge step in the advancement of the Windows Copies Mac Operating Systems. And next most of us landed on Windows 98 and…
What there is at the Microsoft store, is way to many helpful genius clones (right down to the hanging name badge) who would love to show you any number of computers that feature touchscreen technology and Windows 8. And they are really excited by the XBox. (I'm pretty sure this is the only real cool thing they get to talk about all day.) And they are, of course, Windows 8 evangelists.
I think education is ready for an overhaul. The textbook is long dead and the internet is full of odd and unreliable pitfalls. While wikipedia has a lot of good information, the potential for misinformation is also large. So the classroom of the future will be handing out iPads at the beginning of class. As the science teacher begins to explain some chemical theory, the molecular example will appear on the students desktop iPads. As the instructor goes over the various bondings, the student can follow along and explore building different molecules.
It is not the machine but what you do with it. With the iPad we are at the opening bell. The devices have survived their first 24 hours in our collective hands. A moment last night when the kids were rough housing I caught myself saying, "Kids the kindle is a toy yes, but it's a very expensive toy, so I'd prefer if you not wrestle with it between you." And again at the end of a party as we were heading home, my daughter had discovered the drawing program and was walking along the sidewalk with the iPad glow lighting her face. "Be careful honey," I said, thinking of the drop rather than the possible skinned knee.
But as I sit here waiting for the 114 mb file to complete, I'm asking myself, "Would I run Office if I didn't have to?" // So you may really control like 99.9% of the OS marketplace. It's possible. And you may be claiming victory with the new Windows 7. Kudos. But people will get tired of downloading updates all day. And hopefully nothing bad will happen when we apply patch 3.1.22. Cause back in the day... Well, you know. Some drivers and things would call entire systems to stop functioning.
So I've been running WIN7 for a while now. And what can I tell you, it's pretty. It seems stable. It seems pretty fast (due in part to some prefs…
In the process of setting up my new mbp which came with Snow Leopard, I have cut down my add-on needs to the bare essentials. So here is my short list for setting up Mac Os X.
