    Absolutely agree. I was expressing my personal opinion to let the OP know that not everyone finds the transiiton to a totally different operating system as easy as mac enthusiasts like to claim it ...
  • First off, vista? A product that was bad when it came out and is now obsolete? You could buy expensive new hardware, with a totally different operating system and go mac. That's a large money ...
  • Buffet gets a token salary, and a lot of stock. In discussing the CEO of McDonalds, we have discussed his compensation as a total, which does include a substantial stock component. Just want to ...
  • Seems to me like the 1d4 hit a sweet spot in the development cycle. I've had mine for a while, and I keep looking at new releases, and wanting to want them, but really, if I had to buy another ...
  • For McDonalds I found the revenues for the last 4 years, and the CEOs compensation for 2014 and 2011, in less than 5 minutes. It's really not hard to use an internet. Gross revenues, gross profit ...
  • I have to agree there. It's MBA logic that says if you make a trillion dollars profit a year for five years in a row, you are an utter failure because your growth was 0%.
  • The internet is a fantastic research tool. He makes just under $10 million per year, which is more than 600 times what the front line employees make. That seems fair, seeing as how he puts in at ...
  • Which is totally different from the CEO, who gladly jumps in to change light bulbs.
  • Somewhat true. But if we are now at the level of $10/hour machines, that doesn't mean we start paying our workers $5/hour. All that does is make a bunch of welfare recipients who keep busy doing ...
  • How can you see an article about a machine that makes and packagaes burgers and other food, and not imagine that it may be possible that the machine would include cleaning functions? Too busy ...
  • I  suspect that maybe someone thought of cleaning, and the machine is self self cleaning. Hard to imagine, I know, a self cleaning machine. It's foolish to think that this and other automations are ...
  • Sure, but, two things, one the perosn I was responding to said that he wished windows had an equivilant, and it does, has for a long time. If it's an important factor in system selection, it's ...
  • Windows backup can handle that functionality for you, in a variety of ways.  In windows 8 they added "file history" to more blatantly copy Time Machine.  Time machine is just a nice interface for ...
  • Windows allows you to restore system configuration from previous set points using windows restore. I have used this functionality a few times, and it's very handy for "I broke something and I ...
  • It showed up in the list of active threads. That's not the problem. We are both experienced under various flavors of unix. But her experience with ruby was that when something in th ebuild ...
  • If I have to choose between touch screen and joystick, I want the joystick controller. I can use that while looking through the viewfinder and don't have to hold the camera out from my body.

  • Car analogies for cameras are always tricky. I think the focus system is better compared to the suspension. Cars with much less horsepower can get a better time on a twisty track due to vastly...

  • Lacks identity? It's a sports camera, just like it's dad. It has a very clear identity. We have to see how that autofocus systems works in the field to find out if its worthy, but lack of identity...

  • I would love to see a 1dmk5. It's not going to happen, but if it did, I would go bleeding edge and pre-order. The 1dx price tag is a lot to swallow coming from the mk4, but a mk5 price tag, with...

  • My main camera lives in it's bag, in the cabinet attached to my desk. I can have it out in under two minutes, if I feel the need, usually. Ocasionally if I had a big event and did a ton of ...
