Nokia Insider On Why It Failed and Why Apple Could Be Next

chucklebutte Re:Everybody loves? Not quite. (420 comments)

"Apple has arrived at a very safe place, it is responsible for something everybody loves, so it feels it has to keep it going."

Not quite. Apple is responsible for something many people love. Not me. I much prefer the features of Android to the point that I wouldn't consider an iPhone. iOS is an inferior product for functionality (specifically, customizability of the user interface) and it doesn't play well with non-Apple software and has excessively restrictive controls on what the user can do with their device. I have other issues with Google (their data use policies). There's room in my mind and wallet for a new player with better for the customer data use policies and an Android-like feature set.

Yeah its called BlackBerry.

Microsoft Releases Internet Explorer 10 For Windows 7

chucklebutte Re:Actually... I'm glad. (321 comments)

I do like it more in general. However, I like it more because I am not a marketing tool for Google when I use Firefox. I can also install more privacy and ad blocking related extensions when I use Firefox. These are the main reasons why I use Firefox. There are others, more stable, less headaches from end users, etc. Browsers aside, the real problem is Flash. It really needs to die. Security risks up the wazoo, memory leaks galore, and made the web a shit filled advertisted and prostituted out pop up freak fest. Flash fuck you. Adobe you ruined the web.

IE you suck less now, but Microsoft you need to put your foot down and ban Flash from Windows.

The only good thing Apple ever gave to us was no flash on iOS. HTML5 or bust please.

Congressional Committee Casts a Harsh Eye On Vaccination Science

chucklebutte Re:I really wish they would try this (858 comments)

The country is already divided pretty equally down the middle. Religious zealots want pro life, guns, war, and no Gubberment. Non religious sensible folk want universal health care, no war, no class warfare, etc. Basically you can choose to progress to the future or regress to a cave, depending on which side you choose.

Send all the uneducated religious people south of the Dixie line, us educated, non secular folk go north. Give it 15 years and see how each side turned out.

RIM's Future Hangs On Developer Support For 'New BlackBerry'

chucklebutte Re:Curious about their future (148 comments)

No! Diversifying is the worst idea! One phone, one model, keep it simple. Android is too fractured, iPhone has one model, with a service pack released about every 9 months. Apple success is because of the simplicity, one model with slight hardware variations over the course of what like 5 years? Which means most apps on the 3GS works on the 4S. OS5 apps don't always work well with OS6, and wont even run on OS7. I love my Blackberry (Have the Torch 8910, wish I had a Bold 9900...) and my Playbooks! OS2 is amazing!

Ditch the Curve, Torch, Storm, Pearl, That silly flip phone thingy, and stick to the Bold. Keep the Qwerty, more battery life and security hype, and hammer it home that App World has just as many app's as any other App store out there (Take away the 1000's of duplicates and you have about 33,000 unique apps, about the same as BB App World.)

Go #TeamBlackBerry!

Cops Can Crack an iPhone In Under Two Minutes

chucklebutte Q.Q (375 comments)

All I see is a bunch of pew pew and QQ. All these features iPhone and Android either just got, don't have, or might get in the next release are all the same secure feature Blackberry has had forever. Why do droves of idiots flock to iPhone and Android? Malware ridden, data snooping/stealing/selling, billboards in your pocket that you pay a premium for just sounds horrendous!

I guess 5000 fart apps and 1000 apps that when I shake my phone sounds like a shotgun is worth it?....

Microsoft Launches Windows 8 Consumer Preview

chucklebutte Re:Lovely and Intuitive? (500 comments)

Currently in college finishing off degree, and had to take an office 2007 class, also use word and excel several times a week for school related projects.

I prefer using LibreOffice but Microsoft just does Office so well, its like if all you do is spreadsheats and word processing than Microsoft Office is where it is at. Luckily VirtualBox saves the day and allows me to stay in a comfortable work environment and still use those silly Microsoft softwares.

Not seen any studies, I have seen end users machines I work on ask for office 2003 to be installed because they don't want the ribbon, I have heard from teachers and classmates in and out of the class who have a great distaste for the ribbon, I have also heard my mother nag at me because of the ribbon when I installed Office 2007 on her laptop.

Not saying NO ONE likes it, just haven't found anyone who does...

Microsoft Launches Windows 8 Consumer Preview

chucklebutte Re:Lovely and Intuitive? (500 comments)

I started on Win 95a, I actually liked ME, however 2K was much more superb. Nothing against learning something new, I use Gnome or KDE now. It is more of a usability standpoint, not sure why companies think less control of what we use is better. Ribbon is just sloppy the original menu bar works just fine and allows you to accomplish many things in a timely fashion.

I don't want to have to hunt through tabs and list boxes just to bold something, just like I don't want to hunt through tiles to find my desktop to hit the start button to navigate through the horrible Windows 7 start bar just to launch a program that doesn't have a tile.

This wont affect my home life, or my personal computer, it will affect end users which I support, and will influence my future headaches.
