Microsoft Surface Drowning?

denisbergeron Windows 8 touch interface (337 comments)

I'm writing this on a windows 8.1 tablet (HP) and I'm also a user of Android Tablet, Ipad, and some others phones/touch interface.

A lot of people in this site and others sites point that windows 8(.1) are too much touch oriented to be good on a desktop, in fact, windows 8(.1) is also not ready to be used on a touch interface. Touch interface is not only a thing about how too choose the app you want to use, but also how to use, write, select, draw, etc. without a mouse and a keyboard, and on these points, none of the windows 8(.1) software are efficace here, they are 10 years late on any others interface, including the old windows CE/mobile interface that I had use for more than 5 years.

denisbergeron Re:English is illegal in the USA (506 comments)

Yeah you're right, we need tougher laws and becoming a country.

And that's why Quebec made a lot of good movies. in french and even in bilingual.

The movies we made refleat our country culture (Québec and Canada) not the USA culture, like all movie made in the Canada (like "Porky's" , did Canada made another movie since this one ?)

denisbergeron English is illegal in the USA (506 comments)

Imagine you are somewhere in the USA and someone telling you go fuck yourself and speak Spanish. How are you feeling ?

  Almost every state have law to protect their culture, Quebec is not different than Florida.

Remember, even if people in Quebec are 75% speaking Québécois, some racist people don't want the business of these people,
But, then Québec, is the only place in the world where people speak Québécois and the only agnostic country/region in the wolrd (the only place in the wolrd where a real separation between state and church really exist).
These people have to protect their cultural heritage.
And Facebook is just another form of advertisement and public image.

French, German Leaders: Keep European Email Off US Servers

denisbergeron Re:As a Canadian (115 comments)

From the link
Comparable Level of Protection

"Comparable level of protection" means that the third party processor must provide protection that can be compared to the level of protection the personal information would receive if it had not been transferred. It does not mean that the protections must be the same across the board but it does mean that they should be generally equivalent.

Of course sending data in the USA can't give comparable level of protection since it's know that the US gouvernement will snoop on your data.

Link to Original Source

denisbergeron writes "From the article "Canadians believe the world has become a more dangerous place since George W. Bush was elected U.S. president and a majority believe he will launch military strikes in Iran or North Korea before his term ends in 2008, according to a new Toronto Star poll."(...) "The same questions were posed to respondents by pollsters in Britain, Israel and Mexico."(...)"Mexicans ranked Bush the second-most dangerous of the five, behind Al Qaeda's bin Laden." (...) The good part of the article is this "[The] analysts here say anti-Americanism has become more intense under Bush than any other U.S. president before him."
Anyway, who care about what canadians and mexicans thinks."

denisbergeron writes "Many people complacently leave their laptop computers in their cars, and quite a few of them have had their laptops stolen. Often, it happens even when they hide the laptop under their car seats or in their car boot. How can the thieves possibly know which car to strike?
According to a lot of people, it's because they have a special device to detect laptop battery. Does such a device actually exist? I have yet to see a police confirmation of such device. My local police said it's a urban legend, and they have not been able to get their hands on such device.
What the Slashdot communauty think of that ? How these device can work ?"
