  • Is anyone considering voting for Donald Trump?

    I as others have mentioned cannot vote for Hillary Clinton.  I worked as a Defense contractor and I know i would be doing jail time if i did what she did with classified information.

  • Android phone

    Ok so i used a google gmail account and everything backs up to that account so alot like a windows live account.  I was living in the dark ages with the windows phone.  USB tethering and LTE speeds way up for tethering (windows 10 really messed this up with Nokia).  Nokia phone was durable and well made but I guess it will make a good paperweight now.

    It took alot to get me to give up on Microsoft.  I had one of the original flip smartphones with windows on it (Motorola) and back then and this was before 3G and LTE.  Microsoft really could have done well in this market and were early in the game but lost their way.  They should have bought Blackberry early to at least solidify business phones.

    I am not sure, I do have a google account but I only use it for non email stuff. have not tried to make it work with a Microsoft account only.

    So does an Android backup settings and contacts etc like a windows phone?  (or does it not have this concept)   If it does backup phone settings,  where do they go if it is not a google account.?  I guess I will find out today when it arrives.

  • Android phone

    Thanks for the information.  I have one question on signing into an Android phone.  Can you use the xxxx@live.com as a login or do you need to move to a google gmail based account for the phone to function well?  

  • Android phone

    With Amazon Prime Day I decided to buy an Android phone.  So I Know one drive can be run on an Android phone.  What about all the other settings like contacts?  Is it easy to migrate these over from Windows phone?  Sorry to leave Windows phone but it just never materialized into a good experience and I probably hung in there longer than I should of.   With Xamarin, no problem writing apps for Android anymore.

  • Can we trust Microsoft to respect Windows privacy settings?

    Same here ..  I guess they like being dishonest and sneaky.

    The US stock market is all back to normal.  Looks like Trump will win here in November and I bet Germany will look to exit EU next.  Globalization is coming to an end and we will all go back to local.   Everyone thinking this Brexit is bad for UK but I think UK will do better and the EU will suffer.

    Everything costs more.  No more toys for Ian.   But look at the bright side,  you don't have to take orders from Brussels.

  • Microsoft to buy LinkedIn

    , figuerres wrote

    this makes me think of Skype: I hardly use it and mostly I get connect-spam popups from random names that might be female that I ignore.

    That is a good point.  Microsoft puts in no controls on spamming.   Rich Doctors contacting women and provocative women contacting men on skype.  It gets annoying and I would want a verifiable solid list of people allowed to use the service.   Same with linkedin and making contacts.   I don't link in anyone i don't know or cannot vouch for.   That is how it should be used.   If you have a 1000 contacts on linkedin I would never hire you because you oversold yourself and i could not trust that list.   I usually use the list to find out if i know a mutual person applying for a job and use that person's opinion to vouch for the person applying for the job.     

  • Microsoft to buy LinkedIn

    The business facebook.  The new way to search for work or employees.  No more resumes and flying people in for interviews, interviews will happen with skype and save time and money.   It has potential for Microsoft continuing business software and maybe getting out of consumer stuff even more. Maybe they can use linkedIn to replace HR departments with software.   (who needs human resources anyway).   LinkedIn can be a valuable asset if you tie it with office software, email, skype, cloud management of data,  and it becomes the way human capital is managed.
