    Windows 10 is turning out to be one ugly Windows 7 stepchild with ugly wannabe translucency and random explorer re-springs. There is absolutely no UI direction and things get changed haphazardly. After 4-5 years of Windows 8 existence, there is still no consistency and one has to jump between modern UI (Black or White) and legacy grey UI of Windows XP era. I just wish Microsoft dedicated next 6 months of next Falls Creator Update 2018 to UI consistency. But making Cortana say "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub" is more important for them.

    No, the iPhone is for people with more money than sense. But not for long, because you know what they say about fools and money.

    Skipping Release Preview ring was stupid. I was surprised actually at how quick this got released, considering how long it took them to push the April 2018 Update out to production.

    Circumventing their own default app protocol is bizarre at the least, if google were to force chrome upon users when they click a link in a google desktop app everybody would be mad including MS... The moment a company starts to break its own guidelines, all is lost.

    Blocking ads isn't just to avoid seeing and hearing annoying messages on every webpage anymore, it is a legitimate strategy for your own security and protection of your private resources.

    That was only the marketing hype from Apple when they moved to a Unix foundation. Do not blindly trust salespeople. First, Unix is a concept, a philosophy about how an OS should work, and a set of specifications for code portability, not a specific implementation or quality insurance. It is perfectly possible to write a very unsecure but conforming implementation of Unix, as it is possible to write a Un*x flavor that isn't compliant with the specifications (and there are several levels of specs, like POSIX, System V, and SUS). The specifications part gets even more messy when you realize that most Unix development is moving to Linux, which is Unix-like, but not Unix certified, and many new Un*x code isn't easily portable to other Unix systems anymore. This was the reason Windows moved from its subsystem for Unix (aka Interix, SFU, SUA), which was POSIX-compliant, to its new subsystem for Linux (WSL or LXSS), which instead aims at being binary compatible with the Linux kernel itself. Second point is we can challenge Unix design concepts. While it did have some great ideas, there is no reason to consider it to be the best OS design we can ever achieve. Remember it was created in the early 70s. Later, VMS in late 70s and then Windows NT in the early 90s both took inspiration from it, but decided to go with a more modern design, notably based on kernel objects instead of files. Modern Un*x is slowly moving away from the "everything is a file" to a more API-based system... basically the choice Microsoft made in the late 80s when abandoning Xenix, their leading Unix for PC, to work on Windows NT, the foundation for modern Windows. "The Power of UNIX" campaign for OSX from Apple in 2001 was ridiculous when you know history... Microsoft already had "The Power of UNIX" with XENIX, the most common Unix system for personal computers from the mid to late 80s, and already moved on a whole decade before Apple "discovered" it in 1999, almost 30 years after everybody else. I don't see Sun/Oracle bragging about Solaris, HP pushing HP-UX, IBM selling AIX, or movies crediting SGI for their IRIX-based graphics workstations... only Apple seems to believe UNIX is a modern buzzword in the 21st century.

    Well, they just made sure I for certain won't be buying it then. Only reason I was buying CoD games was campaign. Without it existing, I see no reason to buy it.

    Most Apple fans are so deep into the ecosystem/golden jail they don't even care anymore if they buy overpriced, low quality and unreliable hardware (as demonstrated multiple times by Louis Rossmann, who was sued by Apple for repairing Apple products in his shop in NYC, for a few bucks, where Apple was charging $1000+ for the same repair) Here's a VERY enlightening story/report from CBC in Canada about Apple and how they screw their customers: https://www.cbc.ca/news/thenational/complete-control-apple-accused-of-overpricing-restricting-device-repairs-1.4859099 (Video at the end, 18 minutes of pure entertainment and facepalms)

    If this happens we may already have seen peak Chrome. There are too many influential users that will switch browsers, then convince friends, family, and customers to follow suit. Not blocking all ads tends to get browsers hijacked. It seems like Google's motivation is to increase profits, in spite of whatever PR they put out to justify it. Let''s see how that works out for them over time.

    There is a small part of me that hopes this tanks. There are so many streaming services out there already which means that if you want access to absolutely everything you'd be shelling out a lot of money each month to get it. We don't need another service.

    I am not in favor of moving from a high performance languages like C++ and C# and go towards Languages like Javascript and HTML that is designed for web not high performance desktop apps just to please developers. There are other ways to please developers such as bringing excitement to arena by introducing new and innovative devices with UWP. Invest more into UWP, improve performance, invest into communities , fund frameworks around UWP and ... Objective C was Objectively the worst language on earth and top that off with apple's ridiculous $100/year developer fee and their terrible support and slow app approval process. Yet all of it didn't stop developers from writing apps for iOS for many years because excitement was around iOS devices and ecosystem not development tools and obstacles.

    Diversity...it is all BS but companies must pay attention it it. Get sued for being to diverse, and get sued for not being diverse enough. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Diversity is crap...all hiring should be based off of your qualifications.

    Wow, a whole 8.4% of the 175,993 tweets were related to the election!!! That's just TERRIBLE!!!! LOL These people REALLY need to get a life and get over it. The Democrats lost the election because they ran a horrible excuse for a candidate. End of story.
