Re: This post makes the same mistake that the Chinese are making
In _some_ places the political parties can subvert or politicize the process of appointing federal judges, or have them run an election campaign at the state level.

"Astonishingly, over 9 per cent of Android phones use Version 6.0, which is no longer supported by Google."
There are a few reasons this is inevitable.
First is that Google itself doesn't support older devices; why would anyone else ?
Second is accumulating slowdowns. I have a 5 year old tablet that gets noticably slower with every major version update. I'd go back to 5 if I could, just to get the snappy start up back.
"But what is the alternative?"
Meaning specifically that
- the law in this case is seen for the fact that it terminates free speach and a free press.
- that a free press is seen as the foundational requirement of a Democracy.
- that the citizens in that democracy are prepared to fight for it.
based on any technical merit or superior useability.
It's dominance comes from Microsoft's strength as a Enterprise vendor. The fact that they can sell the whole integrated MS catalogue to corps based on a smorgasboard relationship is what makes it so hard for anyone else to get a foot hold. even GSuite's success is based on getting to Google's collaboration/sharing services, and familiarity with the free versions.
Part way through is this:
At around 1550 local time, Cerf, as meeting chairman, was handed an iPad and the top question, of 172 asked, was: “What’s your opinion on the .org sale and what this means for not-for-profits?”
Should that not have been immediately followed with the clear statment that the question was ignored ? Why bury six graphs later:
He needn’t have worried because, despite the internet community actively voting to have the issue of the .org sale raised on stage and despite it being the issue of greatest current concern to the 'net governance world, neither the moderator nor Cerf asked it, nor even mentioned its existence.
Is a repsonse to Sh*t IT.
The end-run around you're objecting to is because you can't figure out how to manage desktops without deploying policies that are more intrusive than the monitoring conditions for registered sex offenders.
I love the kung-fu nature of this move. MS has spent years and buckets of money on all of these corporate management systems. Corporations have spent years and buckets of money managing their employees to the lowest common denominator, and building obstacle after barrier after obstacle. Now MS comes along and decides, that's just so counter-usefull, that they need to adjust that framework ( a tiiineeee little hole ) for the sake of getting stuff done in a normal lifetime.
From the article:
I upvoted because 90% of your post is exactly right. The place I have doubts is the Catalytic converter comment. According to the Internet "The normal operating temperature of a catalytic converter is between 550 and 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit with the optimum temperature being about 806 degrees"
Point #1, There's no way 1 to 2 minutes of idling is going to reduce the stored heat out of that range, by much.
Point #2 Stop/Start is primarily about reducing Fuel consumption. Converters are about reducing smog-producing particulates. Converters actually CREATE greeen house gassses.
There's quality reporting. Is El Reg scraping twitter for news stories ?
"At this time, there is no indication as to what caused the murderous outburst and they have appealed for witnesses to get in contact."
Clearly, it's because he's a scumbag. Don't the police research their shootings on the Internet ?
They are trying to give a corporation a conscience, and doing it from within.
That doesn't fit your understanding of actions ? Then post your attempt to publicly shame your CEO into social responsibility.
You can bet a senseless rant that reveals the poster to hold moronic views described with trite cliches is getting downvoted.
My feelings about windows lies somewhere between "despise" and "hate". Nonetheless the "antithesis.... " comment in the article is unsubstantiated nonsense. As a desktop OS it's uptime is comparable to Linux, if not quite as good. Of course, I am ruthless in minimizing changes on windows, regardless of version.
1. I find it incongruous that locking down a pc, and preventing exploration is seen as a feature, in an educational environment.
2. Since this is such a blatant future mindshare land grab on the part of MS et al., I wonder why the schools aren't simply getting an upfront pay-off and free hardware. Low standards for getting used is not a good lesson for school kids.
"Why would they need another derogatory term? "American" seems to fit all round."
Because, that actually refers to all inhabitants of the entire continent: north, central, and south.
I sometimes break out "Unistatians" to be more specifc.
Beer, so I don't have to think about the closeness of all that instability.
"urea-based system success ..."
I don't think that assumption warrants belief. No-one has said "how deep" the cover-up goes, but perhaps all diesel scrubbing tech is fundamentally flawed, in one way or another. I believe that MB is being investigated in the US for performance & compliance issues, similiar to VW. Urea is a relatively recent development, and companies seem to have shifted to it as a last resort.
Dear USA friends,
I am truly concerned for the instability that is so likely to affect your daily lives. It's a tough prospect, but you are a sturdy, honest people.
I'd like to suggest that to avoid a processing quagmire, that all of the Blue states band together to make a blanket request. I am sure something mutually beneficial can be worked out.
And Puerto Rico. They deserve better too.
Signed, Your (North) American neighbours.
Using a dynometer is the correct way to perform a controlled test. Otherwise your results are plus/minus X% due to wind humidity temperature and road differences, so that the tests aren't actually repeatable.
What VW did is more like a teacher giving his students the answers to a standardized test, and arguing that it is the fault of that test that it uses questions choosen before hand.
In the category of laptops not using 16:9, I think you only have the Surface and the MacBook Pro. That could be part of the demand.
Lenovo is saying they would lose sales, implying that the Surface is in fact competitive, so good for Microsoft.
HP and Dell say they are catering to customer needs. I don't think that sort of decision should be criticized.
Onenote has been available in the iStore for about 1 year. Onenote has been available on Windows for 10+ years, so your "insight" is overly simplistic.
I will aso mention that until very recently, the non-free versions were more funcitonal, and useable.
The original statement is a valid conclusion. mmm hmmm.
LG OLEDs are already priced in the same bracket as the best Sony and Samsung LCD, so LG is already there ( although Samsung gives you more inches ).
If you're expecting them to attack the "Excellent Picture Quality at a reasonable price" segment, Panasonic's roaring success with their plasma line will discourage that market strategy.
