Well, I wouldn't want you on the jury. You've already determined guilt based on no evidence at all.

PCs helped develop my strong right hand*
I remember being at a conference where the presenter had a PowerPoint up, one of the slides having a graph that showed a steep drop in user productivity once the PCs had been upgraded from DOS to Windows.
The drop was a mystery they couldn't explain.
He then closed PowerPoint, revealing the open Solitaire game.

I use my laptop hooked up to dual screens for real work. Wouldn't think of trying to use a tablet for that.
But I did just buy an IPad for reading the news, email, browsing, etc - and I'm pleased with it for that purpose. It's nice to be able to carry it out to the sunroom or patio for breakfast or lunch time reading.
And the price of $300 new and discounted seemed reasonable.
Re: *Hisses & wards against Evil*
Hewlett Packard must have hated that company, because Packard Bell customers couldn't seem to know which company to bad mouth.
My first pc was a Packard Bell, solid metal case and well made. Then they moved to foil lined plastic cases, crappy components and no QA. I guess it was a profitable strategy for a while.

Suspicious senate stock sale spurt spurs scrutiny scheme: This website tracks which shares US senators are unloading mid-pandemic
Re: How long before his site is DoS'd or forced to be taken down?
Most, if not all of those stocks, are held in blind trust for those senators, in theory removing them from any decisions regarding the holdings.
The Wall Street Journal has covered these particular transactions in more detail - it makes for interesting reading and highlights some weaknesses in how transactions are tracked and recorded.
In any case, good on the gentleman for creating this site.
Watch out, everyone, here come the Coronavirus Cops, enjoying their little slice of power way too much
Re: Wear face protection?
An example: someone called 911 for their child, who died when her caretaker rolled over on and smothered her. The governor of the state at a press conference listed this as the first death of a child from the virus in their state, omitting the actual circumstances.
We're seeing a lot of bad numbers and some pretty contemptible politicing over here.
Re: petty power
Here in rural Tennessee, our town's cops have:
Parked cruisers in the local parks and outside some stores to provide wireless access points for those that need access.
In the parks, watch that the walkers, joggers, etc maintain distance on the trails. All I've seen them have to do is wave and say "Hey, how're yall?"
We're getting a rapid test center (30 minutes) to check for the virus.
A little common sense and a desire to help go a long way.

Amazon, Apple, Google, IBM, Microsoft speech-to-text AI systems can't understand black people as well as whites
Re: Racist, really?
In my experience "black" speech is mainly a function of environment - especially country - and not race. In college my macroeconomics professor was from Nigeria, and I had a hard time understanding him at first. His enunciation was not the problem, but the rhythm of his speech. Even later in the course, it took a couple of minutes for me to get in "sync" with him to understand what he was saying.
I have noticed in my lifetime that the regional differences in speech are going away somewhat - perhaps because the media is bringing us to a more universal accent.
