and this review just in:
"CNET Editors' Rating
The Good The Huawei Matebook fits a full Windows 10 PC into an iPad-sized tablet chassis. The fingerprint sensor is fast. Its screen and speakers are excellent.
The Bad You'll get periodic pauses when launching applications or loading web pages, and battery life is merely OK. Huawei charges extra for the keyboard, stylus and dock you'll need in order to use the Matebook like a PC.
The Bottom Line If you like what the Matebook offers, pick the slightly pricier Samsung Galaxy TabPro S instead. The TabPro S has an even better screen, better battery life and throws the keyboard in for free."
... and the reviewer here recommends you buy something else. it looks like it runs w10 because they think no one will notice how performance-challenged it is; users expect that kind of glitchiness. same story as the shorefish too (and thry and fowr) -- needs a keyboard and dock to be useful.
his is encouraging dissenting posts by doing such a poor job at attempting to stifle it that he actually generates more of what he doesn't want to see. X-D
cut back on the volume of your output. problem solved!
"They would all be thrown off the cliff at birth due to mental defects."
yeah, you wish.
where is sparta now?
still not as good as opera tho ...
"Opera repudiates Microsoft Edge battery-saving claims"
"Today’s post accuses Microsoft of a lack of transparency in its testing methods for a result which it has gained much positive publicity from, and notes that Opera’s own repudiating test, which puts its developer version 22% ahead of Edge, runs a more standard gamut, using a variety of types of browsing situations, including video and news, along with an algorithm to effect authentic scrolling behaviour (a weak point for Firefox which is now being addressed)."
and not that much better than chrome in these tests:
"In a post at the Opera blog today, Błażej Kaźmierczak reveals the result of the company’s own tests, which put Google Chrome in third place at two hours and fifty-four minutes, Edge in second at three hours twelve minutes, and Opera ahead of that by obtaining three hours and fifty-five minutes of battery life under identical tests."
imagine how much better opera, and may be chrome too, would look if the tests were fudged to favor them like msft's tests/claims were to favor edge.
oh, the same ones that said winphone was going to take over mobile bcuz it was going to unify the desktop and phone-top environments? and now both mobile and desktop shares are still shrinking. hmmmm ... (-;
"Microsoft updates Windows Maps as Here support is set to expire"
"As a reminder, Here apps (including Here Drive, Drive+, Maps, Transit and City Lens) will completely stop working on Windows 10 devices on June 30th, and while they'll still work on Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1, they won't be updated. The apps will continue to work on Android and iOS."
looks like those who got stuck with w8.x handsets are being rewarded for not buying new phones! let's see if this triggers another round of conspiracy claims: now the german automakers are trying to stop the spread of the glorious, but moribund, msft mobile empire! X-D
will this also trigger a spate of rollbacks from w10 phone updates?
keep some perspective on this: i'm definitely celebrating the lnkd buy. and that means i'm not expecting the stock price to ever hit $75 and possibly, but not definitely, to not hit $55.
don't need/have a laptop; edge won't run on my phone or tablet. so no reason for me to have it. literally billions of others are in ~no~ need of it as well.
desktop users don't need to worry about saving the battery, they are more concerned with saving time.
this announcement points up that those who are stuck with edge due to their platform won't suffer from it as much as desktop users or most of the mobile users in the world -- who aren't using w10 -- would if they were forced to use it. so may as well play to the captive audience. and if other users are fooled into thinking it may be good for them, well that's not deceptive advertising it's just good marketing.
and very recently -- not 3 years ago -- he claimed ties to both hezbollah and isis, 2 organizations that hate and attack each other.
i'd say he's about as credible as you are. well, maybe a little more credible but in the same general category.(-;
"Wrong, I don't wish you were a biased left wing nut job, you just are."
that is a point that you just made up. i neither said nor implied that you wished i was some made up entity of your own devising.
so your response is not even wrong:
it is unresponsive to what i posted.
it is just wishful thinking on your part.
and of course objecting to abuse is off topic because abuse is off topic so addressing it is too. (can you say "DUH"? ok, now can you say it like you mean it?) and if you fail to track the content of my posts that's just fine. also fine if you do but it will avail you naught because you inherently recast it as something it isn't so that you can grant your distorted perception of it some attention. (and as usual your conclusion isn't simply unsupported by your assertion it isn't even related to it.)
"You protest because you don't want to see the truth or others to see it, ..."
i see the truth constantly, day in and day out. and what others see is up to them; my protest isn't going to change that and i know it. i normally only protest in cases where i am drawn to a thread where you have claimed something, much like your ravings in this thread, that is so outrageous i can only point it out as unabashed and unapologetic demagoguery.
your wish to be on ignore was granted YEARS AGO. and you haven't realized it yet? yzat? the only time i respond to you is when ~someone~else~ brings up an interesting point and i, as i noted, take an excursion into 'the matrix' for a brief while to see what entertainment is available there.
you only post for the brainwashed, you just can figure that out, don quixote!
now get some additional unrest tonight. tomorrow's the exact same day all over again and those windmills aren't going to knock themselves down.
sancho! bring him more jimson tea!
this is actually the former williamdavis960 in a clever disguise.
although he was always just a wally sounding-board, so ...
"what is "abusive" to you is that I post facts, ..."
you wish! X-D
and besides, it's not abusive to me because i already know what your situation/condition is and i choose to make the effort it takes to read legitimate content here -- with only a few excursions into 'the matrix' just for entertainment.
plus, it's not only possible to be abusive with facts it's a common human activity. so even your attempt at excusing your abusiveness by claiming that it is consists of facts fails as it doesn't account for real life. it only reflects your perceptual impairments, not the world outside your head.
"ArsTechnica, citing documentations, claim that Obama is using a Samsung Galaxy S4 (a phone that was released in 2013), as it is the only smartphone currently supported by the Defense Information Systems Agency. From the report:
The S4 is currently the only device supported under DISA's DOD Mobility Classified Capability-Secret (DMCC-S) program. In 2014, a number of Samsung devices were the first to win approval from the National Security Agency under its National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program -- largely because of Samsung's KNOX security technology. And the S4, layered with services managed by DISA, is the first commercial phone to get approval to connect to the Secret classified DOD SIPRNet network. DISA has been working with vendors and the National Security Agency's Information Assurance Directorate to develop a Top Secret-capable mobile device for use by the Defense Department and the national leadership both on the move and within secure facilities. But currently, the highest level of classification that can be handled by commercial devices under the DMCC program is at the Secret level. Secretary of State John Kerry was a DMCC-S early adopter, and he served as a beta tester of the hardened Galaxy S4."
the only phone supported. not the only company, the only o.s., the only device.
are he and the d.o.d. violating some contract with msft?
the company has stated that it is impractical to essentially re-develop nt in order scale it down to the size needed for azure and still maintain needed functionality. and so far all i have heard is that they are using linux instead, because it works.
