In one article, there is a complete transcript of Belechick's comments.
Not to defend Microsoft, but I think perhaps I can see the basic problem. Microsoft doesn't trust its users enough to give them access to the system full time. If they did that, perhaps there would be scope to work out the kinks.
But maybe it isn't a matter of distrust. Maybe Microsoft is in the game only for the publicity value of TV viewers seeing the tablets during games.
Now, that just might be wallyball speaking in his own voice.
If so, just what is he saying about himself? For one thing, he greatly overestimates his own importance, and incidentally the importance of this message board.
Last I heard, "members of the press" vote Democrat 12 to 1.
On second thought, that could have been the bot, after all. Those lines could have been mouldering in the bot's database for decades, waiting for the keyphrase "Ayn Rand" to trigger them. They are not otherwise appropriate to the context. And keyword matching seems to be all the bot does.
LOL for once the wallyball isn't relying on the bot, but doesn't show any higher level of intelligence than the bot.
Unfortunately, there is only the Libertarian lightweight, who wasn't invited.
"Well regulated" -- as I said, it was very diplomatically stated.
With 300 million firearms in the hands of civilians, no President would dream of dissolving the Congress, declaring a "state of emergency", declaring himself "El Supremo". Americans wouldn't quietly go along with it, as a disarmed populace would. Still, it might cause a big to-do...
The Second Amendment refers to "arms", not to any particular form or type of arms. So of course it applies to any and every form of armament ever invented or yet to be invented.
And of course it carefully states the reason why such a right is essential. It is very diplomatically stated, but what it means is that the general citizenry must have the means to defend themselves in the event that the government goes berserk. If the people of German had such a right, they could have offed the Third Reich summarily. Problem solved.
Pardon the off-topic reply, but please see "Caesar's Jesus" etc on YouTube.
Microsoft perennially looks for ways to force people to "upgrade". May backfire, force people to switch to Linux instead.
Very, very unfortunate. But it appears to be a hardware problem, unrelated to software.
There are hints that Samsung may have rushed to market in order to head off a new product announcement by Apple, thus perhaps shortcutting parts of its design process. Bad idea.
IIRC several of her staff were also said to have pneumonia. Odd.
A weakened immune system is not necessarily disqualifying. JFK was for all practical purposes an invalid for the whole time he was in office. But then, in those days it was possible to keep it a secret.
Wonderful. The wallybot detected the keyword "pneumonia" and regurgitated some irrelevancies vaguely related to pneumonia. Par for the course.
The bot evidently does no semantic processing, beyond (maybe?) keyword matching.
Maybe Microsoft could license a chatbot from Apple or Google?
Thanks, nice to be appreciated. By force of habit. I do come by now and again, but there is hardly ever anything to comment on, so I don't.
I could make up something to comment on, such as the fact that Bloomberg hardly ever mentions Microsoft any more, and then has to strain to find something upbeat to say...
Maybe one of these days the wallybot will notice it, but probably not. It never notices anything.
Sounds like Microsoft will be losing a substantial portion of its user base all of a sudden....
