The Watch is flopping because people already have smartphones which do a lot more. The future of wearables was not going to be something already outmoded. They just aren't very useful, tiny ass screen, limited functionality and absurd price tag.

They're just chasing their tail around under Cook, Jobs may have been a prick but at least he had some direction for the company.

You're forgetting that people still need to buy new computers, new tablets, and new phones as their existing devices get outmoded. This is how Microsoft has made their money from consumers in the past, and it will continue to be so in the future. It's not like OEMs are getting free full install copies of Windows 10.

New phones maybe. Sadly I don't see a lot of people in this area replacing PCs anymore who aren't gamers. Laptops still seem to be selling although they're mostly Macs now. A friend of mine who is a Prof said its just a sea of Apple logos staring at him when he lectures.

I have this sound card and seem to hit all of those variables, be interesting to see if I get banned. I regularly livestream so people can tell I'm not cheating anyway but I doubt Blizzard will accept twitch streams as evidence of anything

Agreed. He has little credibility here, it's just people excited to have someone with a speck of public visibility agree with their opinion on this game.

Not the way to honor Kenny. That would be this one.

It's funny I never saw tape on that play, only heard about it from others.

Counting down the days til September!

Stabler was a great guy, his foundation raised a lot of money in Alabama for sick kids/RMH. Somewhat related, anyone remember this play? Still nuts all these years later.

He would have crashed and burned regardless, just to far greater effect. Smart captained the Exxon Valdez, Roberts is captaining the Deepwater Horizon (or whatever the oil rig analog of a captain is).

Smart is only chirping up again because he has pulled out a lawn chair and a beer to watch the Hindenburg of a game that is Star Citizen go down in flames.

Yep exactly. It's actually kind of gross how much idiot worship hes getting for repeating forum canards. Smart criticizing anyone for not completing a project is comedy gold, I guess its been so long there are people truly ignorant of his history.

Oh well, time to stop clicking and enabling this shit.

Having used both I don't think its in the same universe as Android, like I wouldn't even compare them in terms of feature sets and app selection. I haven't used iOS in awhile so no clue there. Either way it'll be up to OEMs to decide the fate of Windows Phone in the future.

Zune on the other hand was awesome software, so much better than iTunes. Damned shame that Microsoft is late to market on...everything it seems.

Pretty much every organization I've been with (except for this one thankfully) is exactly that strict, if not more so. Sarbanes–Oxley has made life in IT much more complicated. I can't imagine any IT guys here letting us introduce that kind of security hole into the network.

Nokia already tried that approach, it didn't work. You also can't keep that kind of manufacturing unit around to make 2 models, there's no money in it. People don't want Windows Phones for various reasons. This still lets them offer the option through OEMs while saving billions, its a no brainer from their perspective.

Windows Phone wasn't building momentum for anything was the problem and it was costing them billions to maintain the hardware side of things.

https://www.reddit.com/user/Korval/comments/ check out my comments in the Hornet's nest. Those people are so utterly blind it's sad. But the reading is entertaining, if a tad rough.

Your comments there make you sound unbalanced, I can't say I'm surprised you aren't winning the hearts and minds of the Roberts faithful. Or perhaps it would make more sense in the context, not sure.

You can change the icon size in the Appearances CP in older versions of windows, did they remove that?

Yes, its all or nothing now with DPI scaling settings alone, no other toggles. In their effort to unify the various Control Panel/etc elements they missed a bunch of toggles. Jumplist customization is also gone from the taskbar properties, I used to be able to limit it to X items now it just does whatever it wants. I'm still digging around in the registry trying to find workarounds for the things that bug me. For now you can't opt out of "optional" windows updates like drivers either which is bugging the shit out of me but hopefully thats coming soon.

Overall though its been a fairly positive experience. It's fast, resource footprint is noticeably down and everyday use is fine. The new start menu is better than the Windows 8 one. The store is a non-starter for me anyway so I just ignore it.

It's great for high resolution monitors...not!
Changing the DPI doesn't make them fatter for you?

Changing DPI affects other elements too is the problem. The taskbar icons are so small that they have a large, empty black outline around them. They are pointlessly small, just to make room for their dumb Cortana bar that will fail horribly because less than 1% of users will give a shit about a voiced data assistant on the PC. They look even dumber in the start menu, win32 apps especially look downright comical.

There are things I like about Windows 10 but making the taskbar icons smaller was pretty dumb, I already know I'm going to be inundated with complaints from anyone over the age 35 about how to make them bigger.

There you go:

https://www.hotslogs.com/Player/Profile?PlayerID=2576802

Not a secret, after all Not entirely accurate as it doesnt log every single match, but pretty close on average. (If I uploaded all of my replays, then it would be 100% accurate)

It's not like Dota where they publish your MMR in ranked matches. MMR in HOTS is obfuscated and your link is a guesstimate. It should be visible in the UI. Dota used to do it that way too and started publishing it after too much confusion from users and misinformation from third party sites.
