Re: Nov. 2015: Consumer Reports survey finds Apple most reliable laptop brand

As reported by Business Insider, Network World and Information Week, it seems that IBM agrees with the Consumer Reports survey. http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-says-ibm-saves-270-for-every-mac-it-uses-instead-of-a-pc-2015-10 http://www.networkworld.com/article/2994290/mobile-wireless/windows-ce...

Re: Predictions of the computer

It was also a wide spread belief that computer would develop the potential to think for themselves and emulate human beings as early as 1950, well 64 years after 1950, we still haven't made a convincing one yet, the closest things aren't truly convincing, rather a little freakish.

Re: When did you first start using the trackpoint and why?

In early November, 1992 I bought a ThinkPad 700 and I’ve been a trackpoint user since. Unlike George I don’t disable the touchpad, I just never use it. I haven’t owned, or regularly used, a desktop computer since 1998 and have never used an external mouse, keyboard or monitor with a ThinkPad. Appare...

Re: Rant about 16:9, and maybe switching back to X60t from T520

In a free market, isn’t the “Purpose” of every business maximizing market share and profit? If that’s the case, selling what the mass market wants (or accepts) is a reasonable means of achieving the “Purpose”. It doesn’t seem reasonable to me to rant against Lenovo for doing what’s in Lenovo’s best ...

Re: Is Anyone Here Conversant About Televisions?

If you don’t need a cable box now, you aren’t likely to need one with a new TV. A HD TV will work fine without paying extra for HD broadcasts. In Lansing, Comcast did “upgrade” the service so everyone needed a box. A side benefit may be that, with the new tuner, you may get stations on a new TV that...

How many customers will buy this camera ? Not many at a body only suggested price of $3,499. I assume it’s a product targeting professional photographers. Similarly, 1995 pricing for the TP 701 was not targeted at mainstream consumers. If you really needed a lightweight machine back then, $4,000 to...
