    Oh, replace your SIM when you get back if that matters....

    Those of us who keep around an older iPhone just initialize and take those. Otherwise visit Target or WalMart web sites and see what models are for sale then which are compatible with the countries you are visiting. For most...

    I live less than a mile from a grade-level crossing. It's not as bad as you'd think. I have (in college) and do now at times depending on which city I'm in. It takes a few weeks for me to...

    You need to understand that in many of these areas those red and/or blue counties are really a mosaic of red and blue voting districts. Which is why voter maps are such a fight. Many of those colors on the...

    Ah, nope. Sort of. Kind of. All the people I know in the upper .1 % are Trump supporters. Lots of cognitive dissonance in many ways but they can't stand the thought of a "socialist" takeover....

    At its peak Shopper ran to just under 1100 pages, of which around 200-250 pages were actual news, reviews, tutorials, specialist machine columns, and opinion pieces, mostly written by freelancers like me on an ongoing basis. Oh there was editorial...

    How to reduce the noise of impeachment talk in the US? Start a new (revised?) war/genocide in Syria. (Or get out of the way of those who want to start one.)...

    From someone who has lived in every city discussed this is simply not a thing that happens in those areas except in very rare occasions. Outside of the east and west coasts, 2 hour commutes are seen as ludicrous and...

    MS Phone is Android. Interesting would be the agreements between MS and Google. You know the adoption of Chrome by MS was a part of this and had to reduce or eliminate the cost of the license of Android to...

    Best ones around here and in other parts of the US are new developments in idylic spots and people new to the area move in and find out it was available land as it is under the take off path...

    And on other important fronts. The US will impose tariffs of 25% on Irish and Scotch whiskies. And also 10% tariffs on Airbus planes. Debate rages as to which will be more disruptive to life in the US. And on...

    Well I’m going to drop the topic because is isn’t really going anywhere either, but you are increasingly lecturing someone who literally (partly) grew up on a dairy farm about how dairy farmers are sick of being called stupid. My...

    As to why we only have 2 phone OS options these days. After Jobs did his thing with the big unveil six month before it shipped. - Android chief (Rubin) told his team to rethink. They survived. - Blackberry heads...

    Sort of off topic but was Computer Shopper a thing in the UK or Europe back in the day? In the US for a long time it was an INCH THICK or more bound tabloid sized ad that you could...

    Which is why pacifism is a loosing game unless it is embedded into a larger society that is willing to fight when attacked. Which is sort of like the DT/BJ situation....
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    For a bit of contrarian exposition here. Those dairy farmers and their kin really get fed up being told by many in the cities and urban areas that they are stupid. Especially by some of the more vacuous minds that...

    short version is that there is a set of feedback loops working to make cities more liberal, and because that is where the jobs are the corresponding feedback loop that makes rural areas more conservative as those (primarily white) people...

    While I don't run Linux much (R PI's mostly) I do run into folks doing so all the time. But my stats may be somewhat skewed by my location. Currently I'm sitting about 1 mile from Red Hat HQ....

    Rural areas are in fact quite dependent of a range of forms of collective action anyway. I think there’s already a problem with summarising that as “government”. ... The myth about rugged individuals extracting economic value from wilderness as an...

    Microsoft has already been creating pretty good, and very deeply integrated Android apps: Ditto on the iOS side. And the Mac Office dev team is doing awesome things. But as someone else alluded to, trying to deal with an "office"...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Gate kind of spilled it when he said there is only room for 2 major phone OS's. Apple has the high end and Android the mass market. And with enterprises screaming at MS to better deal with all the iPhones[1]...

    What about What they thought mattered. Valid thoughts or not. did no one read. Yes that does apply to both the UK and the US just now. And in the US where I can watch it up close I get...

    We were discussing the Brexit vote. You switched countries mid conversation....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    There was a vote. Sheeple voted. What they thought mattered. Valid thoughts or not. How they came to their thoughts was not a qualification to vote....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Now THAT was different. Last night (Friday eastern US time zone) a commercial whizzed by on TV that was basically an info-ad against impeaching Trump. Don't allow the coup or similar. At the end a tag line by DT saying...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The thing about BREXIT is I don't understand who really benefits from it I've seen lots of "man/woman in the street" interviews where supports basically said keep the UK for the Britons (or English). Even if it costs them money....

    In Toronto and Vancouver, a significant number of properties are owned as investments by non-residents (often foreign non-residents). So actual city dwellers are not just competing against richer people who live in their city, they are competing with richer people...

    Even if not Impeached, is DT actually going to run next year? Piling on to the other comments. He has an ego that will not let him not run. The R base who as the big turn our in the...

    No-one under the age of 30 considers that a real insult. Seriously. I did spot this one as I was skimming by. My insults are not insults due to the brilliance of my mind and it is only an insult...

    Hillary’s emails *again*? They must be getting really low on squid ink if they’re reduced to using that stuff again - it’s gone rather stale. You must not understand the depth of hatred of B or H by many in...
