Home working is here to stay, says Lenovo boss, and will grow the total addressable PC market by up to 30%
Re: Market +30% = wages -30%
Whilst I can be more inclined to browse the Web, I sometimes work longer since I don't have an incentive to leave early, that is, my 22m commute home won't shoot up to 45m.
I can imagine even those who are better than I and won't be distracted as much, May still work more hours than they should.

Re: In a world, where smartphones aren't shitty PCs
No, seriously. They fuck up everything good they have.
I use iOS now and there things I miss from Windows including the keyboard (swipe works better than SwiftKey), I miss being able to search contacts in the "Dialer app" using the numbers (e.g pressing 3-2-3 would search for "dad"), HERE maps was good, and plenty of other stuff.
Sucky McSuckFace sucks, for fucks sake.
Something to do with their fucking indecisiveness, always changing course, fucking up the stuff people love (Windows Phone), and then prematurely ejaculating and cancelling the stuff people love.
Something like Doubt Corp, Doubt Factory, WhatMart (though this sounds more like Stack Exchange), but better.
Come on people think, group effort.

Which is possibly fine for a smallish group, but the bigger the group the more likely factions will be created, and you'll always have a few knobheads, who are more visually prominent then the rest of the group.
That said, I disagree. People can be knobs and hate someone for being different or making them feel uneasy, nothing to do with the individual or their identity.

What was the point of the rename?
Did they just add alt-Skype into it and decided it's more than just Office?
Yes there's a bunch of extra features in there that won't see their teenage years, but it's essentially just office. Right?
For some reason I've got the song Weapon of choice stuck in my head.

Re: Yes, Google
Perhaps it isn't, but once life goes back to normal, or as normal as it can get, the companies this advice is for are going to appreciate it. Given that companies are going to suffer financially due to lock-downs, it will be in their best interest their website rankings won't be affected by closing the website down, partially or fully. Otherwise they will end up losing even more money, when they could have avoided it.
But if they ignored it and their company suffers as a result, then G-man can go ahead and say "we told you so".
I say, as someone who has f-all knowledge of SEO and web rankings.
Re: Paying for vendor training
I definitely agree.
It's probably why we have a lot of .NET developers out there. I'm not sure what the landscape would be if MS didn't give Visual Studio Express, DreamSpark/BusinessSpark, or the Community Version licenses for free. Though, it might have helped that their IDE and offerings were good enough.
I considered learning SAP, but I'm not going to pay for the privilege. Yes, I understand I might get rich off of it, but SAP already charge enormous prices to the clients, they should be able to provide them free to devs wanting to learn. I'm not going to pay a lot of money for a course I might not even benefit from (University excluding).

Re: Close but no cigar
Except there are valid times when you may want to pull several files in using a macro, or perhaps just reading data from those files. So I think being unable to read files or perform some system-level tasks; such as renaming, deleting, moving, or executing files; would hinder some use valid cases.
I hate using Excel for things it shouldn't be used for. Past a certain complexity, one must refrain from bastardising further and seek a custom implementation.
That said, perhaps people are more used with VBA and like to use it to automate part of their (non-programmig/IT related) job.

Re: Possible use of audio
Whilst I disagree with OP's post, in that Mc Donald's (UK) certainly do cell Coca-Cola, I do believe "Coke" is a trademark of the Coca-Cola company.
I don't think it's a registered trademark and I'm not sure how generalcide would affect a court's ruling if Coca-Cola would ever take someone to court.
