Just like these IBM junkies I would like to see a full keyboard that matches the best apple keyboard with the modern connectors, bells & whistles. I really dislike the current keyboards that are available.

In my home office I have 2 printers one is Xerox Phaser 6180 Which still works with little or no problems. the other is an HP AIO inkjet which we only use the scanner because we kept needing to replace the barely used cartridges that had dried out. We finally were able to get the scanner to work with out having to replace the ink cart.
When the Phaser bites the dust or we can no longer get replacement cartridges we will get a color laser AIO. It is cheaper to run in the long run unless you are constantly printing color.
I understand that Texas is giving many perks to build there but Texas is in a high Drought area. It does not matter what perks you receive if you cant run your Fab.
The Northeast, New York, Penn, Maryland Have many of the advantages (except for the giveaway's) and one that the south and southwest has little control over the rainfall.
Many of the rivers in those areas go from low flow to flood and according to the climate models the track is is moving to low flow > no flow. As water is a vital resource why build in such an area for such long term and high cost assets?
If we are going to compete with the rest of the world we need to bring the WHOLE nations connections to least 1000K up and down. In addition we also need to try and secure the net against all people who shouldn't be there. I realize that this means better understanding of the general public as to the dangers of the net.
I have been trying to find an application that will allow me to design naval craft I have Ideas that I would like to produce for an alternative fiction book but all that I can find work only on windows. please help. send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance.
The problem with just applying updates is that many of them can be as bad as the non updated OS. What we need is some sort of third party clearing house to evaluate and certify the updates. Also ALL phone manufactures should be required to maintain security updates for at least 5 years and they should be fined the original retail value of the phone or replace for free that unsecure phone with the current, for retail sale not an older model, phone at no charge.
I doubt that either of these proposals will happen because it will cost the manufacturers too much money.
I realize that completely perfect devices of the complexity of smartphones is impossible but we need to give the manufacturers and the mobile services incentives to get it as close as possible.
If you use a little intelligence you would realize that we will not see any ARM based machines till Big Sur is finalized and developers have had the time to move there applications to ARM and checked them out on the kit that Apple has leased to them for that purpose.
Apple will not ship a machine that doesn't have a large portion of current applications upgraded because to do so would mean NO sales.
Wouldn't be interesting if Apple, Qualcomm and a number of the others who use ARM to develop their chips got together and bought ARM and then held the rights.
The worst thing that could happen is that the Chinese would buy the rights and then control all that IP and hold it over the smartphone world.
If Tsar Trump is still in office I expect that he will do exactly as you say.
If Biden, from my mouth to Gods ear, gets in then I would expect that they will share the means of making what ever vaccines we have developed for very reasonable fees and perhaps even licensing the ability to make the vaccine at only the cost of development. That would be a great Propaganda coupe especially if China, Russia and Iran let their people know where the vaccine came from. Hopefully that would happen and all side would get on to a better path.
That Biden would consider doing as I suggest is much more possible then the others letting people know if we did do that.
It would be interesting if Apple silicon would have this capability in there new chips especially if they have one for the iMac pro in 2021. They could build that capability into all there chips as they no longer have to wait on Intel.
Highly improbable as the cost of the memory chips would probably be too high for personal or commercial usage at this early in the cycle, but they could surprise us.
It looks like we are going back to the good old days. That is the days of the 1930 and the Smoot–Hawley Tariff. This is an act that was passed in 1930 by a Republican congress and signed by Herbert Hoover and is considered by many one of the things that exacerbated the recession started in 1929 into The Great Depression. One of the reason that it is believed to have done that is because everybody just retaliated and it started a destruction of international trade.
While corporations and others need to pay there Fair Share of Taxes so that governments can supply the services that their people need such as Education, National Security, Health Care and others we need to do this is a rational manner not just throwing tariffs at each other willy-nilly. Or with the current economic fallout from the pandemic we could go into another Great Recession or Depression.
The problem with breaking up many of the American companies that NOW are the big persons on the block.
Some time in the future, perhaps not that far away, the companies dominating the same space will be Chinese controlled by a government that believes that they have the RIGHT if not the RESPONSIBILITY to know all and control all. Just look at what they are doing to Hong Kong.
I hope that the people who are proposing this bill are doing it out ignorance rather then Avarice.
I don't think ignorance is why they are doing this.
Many people in the current administration believe in the Imperial Presidency. This means that for all intensant purposes the President has most if not all of the rights of a Medieval King. This is Totally against the way the our founders saw what were writing.
If you read John Locke and the writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, which many if not all of the people who wrote and voted for the Constiution you will easily see this. What really amazes me is that many of these same people claim that they are Originalists in term of the way that they say the Constitution should be interpreted.
It seems to me that what I read about the article, I didn't go behind the paywall, and many of the comment and reply's made are either saying or implying that the problem is not hardware, software or another specific thing. The problem is the same thing that I ran into when I was consulting that is: Ask the right questions. Many time the client would say we need to do this, but not really addressing the problem but the problem with the result of what they were presently doing.
I was constantly trying to find out what the root of the problem was so I could get them what they needed.
Everyone seems to be concentrating on 5G, but I would like to see a different course taken.
I would propose that within the USA, Canada and the EU that every Home and Office have a minimum connection speed to the desktop of 1Mb within the next 18-24 months.
Why do this? Well let us make the assumption that this is not the last time we have to school, work, and have to stay at home for general health reasons. It would be wise to prepare for that eventuality. Also as at home activities of all types become more prevalent we will need to have more capability at the desktop and the backbone.
The above is only step one. 36-48 months, from now, we should have the capability to provide 10Mb to those same desktops because people will require better and more robust connections as they integrate it more and more into their lives.
We will now be charged for what we use even if the Lord of the manner requires us to us his stuff and then charges us for it. What is next we will be required to live in their homes use their choice of everything and we will be charged for what we use. Back to the company town and store. Next we will be paid in company script that only the company will except.
SERFDOM here we come!
Putting someone in jail for maybe 2-5 years while there families can get on with there lives I don't believe has been shown to have any real effect on the companies that have OUR DATA.
Until there are real consequences to the upper management of these companies (as part of that group of people I mean those that allocated what to spend to protect OUR DATA) such as large monetary penalties that are not covered by company or personal insurance so the people responsible, and their families, can feel the consequences of not doing everything that is necessary to protect the customers sensitive data. as part of that group of people I mean those that allocated what to spend to protect OUR DATA
The fact that the Swordfish were old was an advantage. the antiaircraft fire control radar could not track planes go as slow as the swordfish making them very hard to Hit.
This may prove that the latest, greatest and most sophisticated are the best solution.
take for example the low level drones the Iranians have been harassing the US navy carriers.
There is NO TRULY FREE MARKET!
One has never existed and never will someone or sone group will try and manipulate any and all markets to gain an advantage for themselves. US markets were at there freest in the late 1800's and all I need to direct you to see how FREE they were is give you two names Fisk and Gould. Look them up and see how Free those Markets really were.
Both the right and the left always forget Human Nature and come up with theories that sound good but don't work for long if at all.
How reliable will the reviews and stories about Mac's vs PC's be by a company the owns a PC manufacturer?
I pose it as a question as because we must give them a chance to prove that they will be truthful or bias.
I hope they are the former.
I hope that their editorials will not whitewash what the Chinese government wants the world to see.
If you take a look at the history of insurance company influance on corporate actions you will that the fact that they will NOT take company money is a good thing.
Using the effect of Fire insurance on building codes and the training of fire departments you will find that the insurance companies forces cities to put in codes or they would not write policies in that city and if the cities didn't train real fire departments they also would not write policies. This forced companies to either go without insurance, something stock holders didn't like because of possibilities of bankruptsy, or build to the requirements of the insurance industry.
This could mean that companies will start doing what is needed or tell their shareholders why they risk self insurance or bankruptsy. It can also effect the public perception of a company as customers can't be sure that they will be there to backup warrenties or services needed by the customer.
As I like to see competition and the fact that their should be competition going after my tax dollars, it would be nice to see Apple going after this space.
As an ex GI I want the best for our guys and gals and the best security for our goverment that money can buy. it also could seap over to the civilian side giving Apple another way to show that it does the best.
"I suggest you start to read up on CO2 fertilization, because your idea that a CO2 enriched atmosphere mass famines is not remotely supportable. CO2 is plant food. Maybe you missed that particular science lesson at school."
Yes more CO2 should mean greater yield in crops per acre, but the higher temperatures will mean,according to some Models, Larger areas that will get less rain then they are now and turn into desert. We are seeing all of the major deserts expanding into areas that were once fertile. If these models are correct then the Increase in Atmospheric CO2 will not have enough effect to offset the loss of acerage.
I have found that many of the all-in -ones work well om Windows but their driver for scanning and faxinf on the mc are deficient.
Are you going to test those features. Also, if they work on a network are you going to test the machine performance for all their capabilities over a mixed network, Mac & PC.
