Microsoft Ends Mainstream Support For Windows 7

theendlessnow Related news (640 comments)

Intuit drops schedules C, D and E from TurboTax Deluxe (also removes support for partnerships and K1 handling)... just about as good of news as Microsoft getting rid of Windows 7. I guess I'm a poor business manager..... I don't think I would have made those decisions.

Developers, IT Still Racking Up (Mostly) High Salaries

theendlessnow Re:How many really make $140k ? (198 comments)

True $140K is not poverty... it's slap dab in the middle of the average middle class for households according to President Obama. And this is slashdot, so you can't argue with that since it has to be true.

Dell Demos 5K Display

theendlessnow Re:Same reason blu-ray didn't take off (204 comments)

Uh.. hate to break it to you but no... Blu-ray does not have the success that it was supposed to have. In fact, the thing that has taken off is sub-par supposedly HD streaming content... which often times looks worse than DVD. Sony paid a whole lot of bribery money and arguably lost (again). http://www.extremetech.com/wp-... Hopefully that shows that Blu-ray is hardly a "win"... in fact, it's sort of pathetic... especially if consider the saturation of DVD content and (illegal) the accessibility of such content vs. HD and Blu-ray. That is to say, DVD is doing quite well when arguably it shouldn't be doing well at all. Does it show DVD decline? Yes. Does it show Blu-ray rise? Yes... but doesn't look pretty for Blu-ray. Sony tried to buy their way technology wise this time (after the betamax debacle)... how well is Sony doing nowadays? I find that interesting...

Sony Warns Demand For Blu-Ray Diminishing Faster Than Expected

theendlessnow Not again.... (477 comments)

After I just got done buying enough Blu-ray equipment to transfer over all of my Betamax vids... sheesh! I thought for sure that Blu-ray would win after Sony paid everyone off. Maybe if they paid the consumer to buy Blu-ray?

Dear Sony,

Please send me $50K USD every year for the next 10 years and I'll consider buying some Blu-ray material.
