Re: Fall of empires (and civilization too?)

I find it interesting that those who think DJT is an idiot also think he could pull off such a stunt.

And after all this bashing of conspiracy theories...

Here's a starter for 10 on smartphones: Who grew in Q3? A) Everyone. B) Asian vendors. C) Apple

Re: MORE 3D Skeuomorphic, LESS 2D FLATTY

Agreed. I have Snow Leopard running in a virtual machine. I had forgotten how nice it looks. Much better than the flat look.

Microsoft reveals terrible trio of bugs that knocked out Azure, Office 362.5 multi-factor auth logins for 14 hours

The title references Office 362.5 and in the article it refers to it as Office 363 and 364. Need a proofreader?

Re: What an irony !

Giny is 61, so probably older than many that are being sacked.

Re: Who said macs were more secure than Windows?

This old saw that Linux is too hard for normal users is mindlessly repeated and totally wrong. I know a bunch of old retired folks that use Linux and have far fewer problems due to the lack of malware messing up their systems. I have seen people moved from Win 7 to 10 have more problems than moving them from Windows to Linux. With a host of desktop options (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXE, Cinnamon, Mate, Enlightenment, etc.) there are excellent and easy to use Linux desktop distributions.

Isn't the Mach kernel in MacOS a microkernel? If so, wouldn't that mean that this wouldn't be an issue?

So, does this mean that Word will actually finally be able to keep outline numbering straight? For years it has been common for it to get mixed up, and then it was game over. No way to fix it without redoing the whole thing.

Sex harassment scandal scoops up Silicon Valley's Slimy Scoble

"Weinstein has so far stuck with the tried-and-tested approach as used by Bill Clinton, Ted Haggard, Jimmy Swaggart and David Vitter, among others, but it may not be working for him given the enormity and severity of the accusations against him and the willingness of more than two dozen women to go public."

I would say that the rape accusations against Bil Clinton rise at least to the level of Weinstein's. But, somehow he is given a pass. And his wife, who rants about these issues, also gives him a pass. It is good to see that we are at a point where these guys are no longer given a pass. Bill might be getting nervous...
