Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

BoRegardless Microsoft Marketing, Money & Subscriptions (567 comments)

Used to be computers were replaced every year or two and at most 3, giving Microsoft a short turnaround in selling Windows for continual income.

With hardware being more reliable and in more of a limited set of new features, people don't need to upgrade as often and MS sees their OS income in long term decline.

Anyone who tells me Microsoft is not moving toward yearly subscriptions is doing spin.

NASA, NOAA: 2014 Was the Warmest Year In the Modern Record

BoRegardless Trends versus Data Points (360 comments)

Earths climate should be properly accounted over centuries and millenia and not decades in order to be statistically significant.

Statistically, decades are not a valid set of data points. People using such information are attempting political acts and not proper long term scientific work.

Earth's weather is almost entirely determined by Solar activity (or lack of same in the Maunder Minimum) and large volcanic eruptions. Krakatoa is the last big eruption which caused a large drop in northern hemisphere temperatures as I recall.

Naris: All your internet data is held by US

BoRegardless BoRegardless writes  |  more than 2 years ago

BoRegardless writes "1984 seems closer than we thought when an ex-codebreaker for the NSA reveals that the US records everything that passes through the internet. Does this surprise anyone? Will it change how you do email? Will encrypted email attract unwanted attention?"

Hacking? - Moles are Worse!

BoRegardless BoRegardless writes  |  more than 2 years ago

BoRegardless writes "When you put in all the systems and safeguards to prevent web & social hacking, it still leaves open the worst possible case of spying & theft...the insider. I had a fellow businessman who lost all his chemical secrets to a Yale graduate employee who disappeared to resurface in Korea. How do you stop this?"

Is $60/month Mobile Data Access Obsolete?

BoRegardless BoRegardless writes  |  more than 4 years ago

BoRegardless (721219) writes "Are Laptop data accounts made obsolete with the iPad?

$60 per month from ATT or Verizon is $720/yr, forever.

If email & Safari via the iPhone is not enough, a $700 iPad with 3G can get you service for $20/month and only on the months you need it. Thus, an iPad user is money ahead inside of 2 years, not to mention convenience aspects.

Data income to wireless networks is going to plummet. What is that going to do to Verizon, Sprint and others?

Am I wrong?"
