Those "trained monkeys" error messages are cute at first, and then get super annoying real quick when you're trying to get something done and some software is trying to make a joke out of the fact that something went wrong. Chrome is especially annoying in this regard.
Hanselman had a good blog post about the reaction to this campaign: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/WorkingRemotelyConsideredDystopian.aspx
I don't know. By saying "Yeah, but..." he's acknowledging that working remotely is evil. Which is ridiculous: if I had a choice to have a meeting in a park or in a depressing office building three traffic jams away, I'd choose the "evil" remote working option.
People don't buy tablets from the CEO, they buy them from the guy in the store. If RealBboy360 is correct (and I refuse to believe a man with his impressive record of all things cheevo can be wrong) then a winning strategy for Microsoft would be forcing all retailers to let their most attractive salesmen only sell Microsoft products.
Youtube seriously sucks nowadays. Weird usability issues in your favorites list, the player control seems to change for the worse every other week, it [i]still[/i] does that weird "I'm going stop playing at this point even though the entire video has cached so you either have to skip a bit or refresh the page" thing it did five years ago, and the Google+ stuff is getting ridiculous. Alas, it still has all the content, so there's no alternative. Vimeo is right for trying to cater to a different market, but I still wish all the youtube content would be on Vimeo because that site is orders of magnitude better than Youtube.
It also does that search box hang thing for me, by the way.
I have zero use for this app until is saves the stuff you've added to the list for offline viewing. Every couple of days I'm thinking "I should read this on the train home. Wait, I'll add it to the reading l- oh, wait." It seems like such an obvious feature too, I wonder why they haven't implemented it.
