A Radical Plan For Saving Microsoft's Surface RT

SecretSquirrel33 Price (391 comments)

From the very start price was the biggest failing point for the Surface. They were crazy to price it at $499 WITHOUT their key marketing point...the keyboard case.

Developers May Be Getting 50% of Their Documentation From Stack Overflow

SecretSquirrel33 What would I do without the web? (418 comments)

As a younger developer (~5 years) I often wonder what it was like to be in the industry 25 years ago, before the web is what it is today. Documentation is ALL online. I only read software books for academics or to learn something new. In order to get the job done, there is no substitute to google and/or sites like stack overflow.

Goatman spotted in the mountains above northern Utah

SecretSquirrel33 SecretSquirrel33 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

SecretSquirrel33 (1857738) writes "A man spotted dressed in a goat suit among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah has wildlife officials worried he could be in danger as hunting season approaches. Coty Creighton, 33, spotted the goat man Sunday during his hike. He said he came across the herd, but noticed something odd about one goat that was trailing behind the rest. "I thought maybe it was injured," Creighton said Friday. "It just looked odd." He said he pulled out binoculars to get a closer look at the herd about 200 yards away and was shocked. The man appeared to be acting like a goat while wearing the crudely made costume, which had fake horns and a cloth mask with cut-out eye holes, Creighton said."

Mormon Proselyting Social Networking

SecretSquirrel33 SecretSquirrel33 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

SecretSquirrel33 (1857738) writes "Calling it a revolutionary change, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a new approach to the way its missionaries and members share the faith's message. The new launch of the website Mormon.org will take visitors directly to those people. The new mormon.org site allows you to find and read the profiles of Mormons from around the world. In some ways, this creates the reverse of knocking on doors that Latter-day Saint missionaries have been doing for more than 150 years.

On the new launch site, more than 2,000 Church members have listed their profiles and are sharing their life stories and faith. Some 1,300 more are working on creating them."
