Apple's Secret Weapon To Win the Tablet Wars

n2art2 Re:Was Microsoft Riight? (716 comments)

Well, many years in, and it still works for the iPhone. Your comment really only boils down to: Those who don't like Apple products will not buy Apple products, and will be satisfied with their smug opposition to Apple products by purchasing a copy of an apple product from another manufacture.

While I'm sure you intended to be funny, you obviously don't understand the english language enough to understand what the subject of the sentence was. Comas have a purpose.

How AT&T Totally Flubbed 4G

n2art2 Re:"real 4G"? (199 comments)

Your wrong. With CDMA rev A you cannot host a hotspot using your cell network data connection and make a telephone call. The call will put a hold on the data.

iPad 2 Forces Samsung To Reevaluate Galaxy Tab

n2art2 Re:Excellent! (520 comments)

unfortunately this is not real competition. It's copycat-itis. When all the competition is doing is trying to copy another products as close as possible, it's not real competition.

n2art2 Re:Apple brings out the crazy in people (1118 comments)

Trust me after having to have 2-XT2's need motherboard replacements in the last year (One of which took Dell 6 months and 4 trips to the depot before they got it right. . . and I told them what needed replaced from day one) and an XT one needing some other hardware replacements, and working with Dell's steller Repair Depot. . . . I'm so not getting a Dell.

IPad 2 33% Thinner, 2x Faster, iOS 4.3

n2art2 Re:Not bad (1118 comments)

To be fair, it still doesn't do what the iPhone 4 does, exactly. And the GGPs post is acting like developers won't develop apps with the new hardware enhancments in mind because it might alienate the ipad 1 owners. This happened with the phones, it will happen with the iPad. Heck it happens with computers when the OS or hardware changes. The GGP post is stupid.

Android Passes iPhone In US Market Share

n2art2 Many vs. one. . . (550 comments)

OK, I'm tired of people acting like Android isn't locked down to the end user as much as the iPhone is. The only real difference is The phone/OS manufacturer locks down the phone, and requires a jailbreak to get it out of this state, for iOS devices, and Android based devices are locked down by each and every one of the service providers instead, and still require a jailbreak to get it out of this state. Oh, and. . . . Since when is it a news story when an OS, that is on many many difference models of phones, each with different features, and appeal to difference people shouldn't have higher market share than an OS that is on one phone. One phone. Make a big deal about it if any other single phone sells more than the iPhone, and it might mean something.

The Ascendancy of .co

n2art2 Re:Namecheap (164 comments)

You would make more money, if you just went to enom and got your own reseller account to manage all of your domains.

That's what I did, and now my company provides and sells domains to all of our website design customers as a part of our packages.

Why go to a secondary reseller, when you can become one yourself and take out a middle man.

n2art2 Re:Namecheap (164 comments)

namecheap doesn't offer all of those nice services. They are a reseller, and enom actually provides that service to all of their resellers. A very handy ability to resell.

n2art2 Re:What registrar would you recommend? (164 comments)

I'd use me. funkedoodles.combr>

Just saying. My company is a resller from enom.


So basically I'm saying enom is the way to go, but if you want to buy it through a reseller, I'm there for you.

Why Apple's iPad Has Been Good For Sprint

That doesn't mean it's locked. That means it's not compatible with sprint's network technology.

IE6 Addiction Inhibits Windows 7 Migrations

n2art2 Citrix is the way to go. XenApp - XenDesktop (470 comments)

Your on the right track. The best solution for maintaining those applications that are dependent on IE6 (which is stupid from a developers perspective), would be to utilize Citrix XenApp.

Notice: I work for a major IT implementation and support company in the Omaha, NE area with a national customer base.

Many companies are migrating to virtual servers, virtual application publishing, and virtual desktops. Multiple reasons for this. servers is an easy one by now, so no need to discuss that reasoning. Applications and desktops, is where virtualization really gets moving right now. Give the end user a thin client (desktop or laptop models), or allow the end user to provide their own device, laptop, desktop, iPhone, iPad, agnostic of what OS is installed.

Then use Citrix XenDesktop, or Citrix XenApp and publish or push the work silo desktop, or applications only to the end user's device. Do, or don't support the user's end point devices, but focus support on the applications and servers only.

We are implementing this in a large number of corporations, and we use it internally as well. It is the way to go, hands down.

Exchange 2007 Leap Year Bug!!!

n2art2 n2art2 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

n2art2 writes ""The Exchange server address list service failed to respond. This could be because of an address list or email address policy configuration error. "

This is a message that many Exchange Administrators have seen all day today.

"Just got off phone with MS Support. This is a Leap Year Bug, at midnight the issue will be fixed. I have a support call in and this is the fix the stated on the support case."

I guess that means that all Exchange Administrators using Exchange 2007 can count today as a holiday, and expect the same in 4 years, unless Microsoft fixes the issue. Then again others might say that this is one of the fastest fixes that Microsoft has issued to fix a bug, because as of midnight tonight everything will be back to normal!"

n2art2 writes "I'm looking for a solution to the problem of having multiple cell phones. I would like to be able to combine 4 cell phones into one. I can't just get rid of the phone numbers, because they are all important for different business needs. I could forward 3 of the numbers to the 4th phone. . . that that can get expensive, and is not all that effective. I would prefer to have the ability with 1 phone, to have 4 inbound numbers attached to it. Is this something that is possible, or available? What are your suggestions?"

n2art2 writes "Segway is calling back more than 23-thousand of its Personal Transporters because of a software glitch that could cause riders to fall off by throwing the wheels into reverse,

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says people should stop using the self-balancing scooters immediately. It says Segway has received six reports of people suffering head and wrist injuries.

The company is offering a free software upgrade to fix the problem.

This is the second time the scooters have been recalled since they first went on sale in 2002.

Associated Press says Segway Chief Executive Jim Norrod and Chief Technology Officer Doug Field would not comment on whether the problem has sparked any lawsuits, and would not give any details of the injuries sustained."
