This obsession with high resolution displays and high pixel density is retarded for notebooks and desktops which sit too far away form your eyes (most of the time anyway) to be noticeable. They also require scaling, consume more power, cost more money, re-tooling of software. And for what? NOTHING. Keep high res/density displays on phones and tablets, and otherwise give me a solid 1080p screen WITHOUT scaling.
This is cool. But you know what a better deal is? Buying your own multiterrabyte cloud storage NAS, like a cheap but solid consumer level WD MyBook Live. Then you get 2TB for $100 for as long as the drive runs, and syncing/streaming within your own wifi network is a million times faster than through the net. Even including redundancy, it’s still a way better deal. I’ll never go back to dropbox.
What does that statement even mean? Does he mean that tablet sales will come to a complete halt within 5 years? False. Does he mean it’ll massively decline to the point of not being a viable business? False, since at least one company will like still be selling them then (ahem, Apple). Does he mean only one or two companies will be really competing in the tablet space in 5 years? Maybe, but that doesn’t mean it won’t/couldn’t change and that tablets will be dead. Is he trying to persuade people not to buy tablets and to buy blackberry phones instead? That’s ridiculous. What the hell DOES he mean? It’s a mystery.
I had idiots who try to ruin a massively awesome concept like airbnb. I travel a ton and staying in generic hotels is a drag, and often even more expensive than a nicer airbnb rental. I’m glad they’re requiring users provide legit ID.
I like to urinate in people’s beer cups when they’re not looking. Being able to cheers them, watch their reaction when they take a sip, and then automatically friend them is pretty cool. And later I can write on their wall about how they drank my urine that night! Cheers!
