  • 10. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IF YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES

    Also if prices were listed, and I knew of a clinic that was $10 bucks for tetanus (an app would be great too to get the price within 10 miles) I would leave and save some money.

    My insurance is in your future.  I hate nurse practitioner because my first visit was with one and the antibiotic did not work so then second visit with a doctor. Trying something that does not work costs me money and makes them money.

    I agree with most of what is said except insurance companies and cost.   I recently had an infected cut on my leg.   Took 3 visits at 280 dollars each (lowerd to 199 by such a wonderful insurance company) to fix it and not too great at that.  Plus a tetanus shot for a mere 150 bucks on top of that.   All goes to the deductible of 3000 dollars which I pay.   I want a menu where when I walk into a clinic or hospital all charges are itemized so I know beforehand what I pay.   When we all see prices things will change.

    @Bass: I would be all for a clinic that has no insurance company involved and I promise not to sue.  No lawyers and no insurance companies.  Yeah sometimes the doctor messes up but the alternative of litigation does not solve anything.  You die or you get messed up.  Money wont fix it anyway.   No doctor is perfect.  Health insurance and litigation is the real problem in USA.  Also, giving free expensive healthcare to everyone without fixing costs is a major problem.  I also noticed a lot of companies charging more for health insurance policies if you make more money.  This is just plain wrong.

    Watch is sold out.   Looks like Microsoft has a hit.   Looks like next year is Microsoft's year and Apple takes a back seat.   Short Apple stock and buy Microsoft.

  • Microsoft & Oracle dragged into epic developer wage fixing conspiracy lawsuit

    @ScanIAm: Not to mention they have a staff of attorneys and deep pockets and you would have to fork up a lot of money to hire an attorney who would suck your wallet dry to defend yourself.  Legal system is for the wealthy.

    Since they make it out for health,  why not a simple blood alcohol test?  Diabetic blood sugar test would also be helpful for many.  These could be little add on options.  Also, make it contain a quick lookup for your medical parameters like blood type, chronic conditions, next of kin to call in an emergency.  For aging adults a feature of " I have fallen and cant get up" with a gps location.  Lots of stuff to be added.   An insect repellant (sends out sound waves which insects do not like) would be nice when walking in the woods.   Also, when in NYC it would be nice to have a needle with a potent chemical that would freeze a mugger attempting to rob you.   Then I would pay 500 bucks for it. 

    Also, if it could talk to my car and garage door opener (learn the codes like my car does) so I don't have to mess with keys. (it has a microphone so it would recognize my voice and open when I say "open the damn garage door ") .  

    A quick button that would ring my cellphone to get me out of a meeting or boring conversation would be nice also. (without offending the parties involved.)

    No blood pressure check?  No NFC to unlock doors and checkout at store?   Needs more work.

  • Why no Silverlight or Flash

    Bass loses the argument and now he plays dumb.   Why don't he just admit he is wrong?   If I am ever wrong, I am sure to admit defeat.:D   Silverlight is better than HTML browser based apps.    Case closed.   (I did like the conversation to a point but now it should end)   Also,  better technology does not always win in the market.  Many factors can cause one technology to win over another.

    JavaScript apps are cheap looking, cheap feeling and plain nasty compared with native applications (I am developing JavaScript websites now for a living)

    That explains why your so miserable lately.    Are you not mad at Microsoft and Sinofsky for causing this pain to happen to you?   Microsoft (yes the CEO does read this),  listen up and bring back Silverlight and lift the dark clouds off your image and make your developers happy again.
