Apple 1 Sells At Auction For $905,000

ArcadeMan Re:No surprise (81 comments)

8GB RAM? I wish. The "new" 2014 entry-level Mac mini only has 4GB in the standard configuration, like all four models of MacBook Air.

ArcadeMan Re:Open social network standard (160 comments)

We already have that. It's open and it's not centralized. It's called email and websites.

ArcadeMan Re:Hindsight (81 comments)

If there was 137 more working Apple 1, they wouldn't be worth that much.

Apple 1 Sells At Auction For $905,000

ArcadeMan Re:No surprise (81 comments)

Apple hardware is over-priced, but then again you get the OS and the office suite for free with the system and free upgrades later, so it's kind of cheaper in the long run.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

ArcadeMan Re:Monochrome, Yes (335 comments)

And yellow can be replaced by blinking. Hell, the speed of blinking could even be a better indicator of how much time is left before it turns "red". Epileptic people would love it.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

ArcadeMan Re:This looks familiar (335 comments)

But power users are exactly the kind of users who can dig around to find the setting they're looking for.

New users are totally lost if there's no logic to the structure and organisation in the control panel.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

ArcadeMan Re:This looks familiar (335 comments)

I don't recall any design from the past 50 years that looked as plain and boring as OS X Yosemite and Windows 8/10.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

ArcadeMan This looks familiar (335 comments)

As a Mac user, I find the "zPC Settings" categories quite similar to what Apple uses in OS X.

It's not about "dumbing down" features, it's about having clear categories at the first level. If Microsoft hides settings from level 2 and up, then it does become a problem.

Also, I find the look of those GUIs horrible, even more so than OS X Yosemite. Where did the latest GUI designers graduate from? Both OS X and Microsoft look more plain than twenty-five years ago, surely that can't be a coincidence. Are they preparing us to go back to monochrome displays?

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

ArcadeMan Some people here have no idea (669 comments)

Some people say they're going to "avoid FTDI chips in the future". Good luck with that because FTDI makes the most reliable Serial-to-USB ICs on the planet. Going with anything else is just asking for trouble.
