    So i wrote out my hearts MS contents the other night... came back finally ready to withstand all of the negative comments and the haters.... and there are none.

    but there are also no other comments but one.

    this is why thread views are important. you may think that was drunken diatribe - which in parts it was - but it was true. true to me...and true to what i think. its not fake *. a nite of it. most well reasoned - all coming out in a jumble at once. sorry.

     i cant tell if it is even worth doing - every now and again - without the basic give and take idea - of - you post something - even if you get one reply- we will show you people read it ( or not)

    lets all beat the dead horse together.... return page views

    apart from that... do what i said lol

    Windows isn't just the shell.

    If you want a custom shell - write your own, or pay for or join a community that is doing just that. It's perfectly expandable if that's what you're into, and there are entire communities and commercial products dedicated to doing this if that's what you want.


    ..and in the "old days" ... id agree with that

    a much bigger change is needed now

    <paste image - battleship turning - AGAIN>


    edit - Customize - is not just a button


    it is an ideal.

    what else...hmmm




    i like it alot

    id never PAY for it though - as when i click a message - even with perfect internet - i have to click back and forth 5 times to get it display the new nessage i want to see


    i love all the - any device stuff - but it works better on my phone than on my pc!


    and where is the date and time - normal


    and why cant i customize everything in it?

    great start - 40 out of 100


    (ps everyone else - 10 out of a 100)

    Xbox kinect kaffufle = solved.

    1. you DONT take it out (look stupid)

    2. you stand your ground on ORIGINAL principal that the interaction will work - to not be afraid of it - and that all future xbox's with connect will have a voice command for "Close View"

    and a motorized thing covers down over the ever seeing eye/lens. so you KNOW it isnt seeing you.

    = consumers - RELAX
    *maybe this is one of things you blow your cash wad on instead of phone companies)



    you KNOW where your tiles are.

    you KNOW your computer / device is yours.


    customization - PARAMOUNT

    i know that was a good closer ... but i STILL have(nt found what im...)
    ...a few more gripes. yip - even more.


    I used to be the IE king. switch that company - use the features - do this do that.


    now im on chrome... why is that?


    maybe it is because:

    - ie prompts me over and over to use bullcrap smart screen filter

    - ie's (bings?) auto complete is bad - especially on phone - have to type my own email addres every time (will see if this has been fixed in wp8.1

    - i load diver programs from cd (vid cards etc) and ie puts in that stupid yellow bar - with allow to run

    its like so early 2000's

    - the icons havent changed - the tabs look weird now - IE used to let you do MORE than other alternatives - now it is the browser for kids - = dumded down too much

    stop being stupid


    on kid machines - that i build 2 of every year from old stuff - i used to make it all IE - now its chrome.  I was number 1 ie fan i went to the toronto ie4 launch. 


    i was on board


    why am i not anymore



    oh ya - cause sales sports jocks ran the company for the last 10 years

    i AM rambling now - but you know what i mean when youre forced to deal with 90's ie "ideals" in a chrome world
