After my switch to Apple, I've also adopted Safari. Can't really fathom using anything else. Swift, efficient, doesn't play flash automatically, AdBlock and auto-suggest and auto-remember passwords and save them in iCloud.

 

rant: I succumbed to peer pressure and my head hurts accordingly. Ugh. And in case you just shunned me for drinking during the week, it's May Day.

I don't see anything there that Chrome doesn't do as well or better.  Plus, it syncs open tabs with my phone and tablet.  :)

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?

For me, it's mostly the dev tools. :-)

Safari does that too, but you're right although I wouldn't say one does better than the other. I am very familiar with Chrome, I had been using it since the first beta in 2008, back when people were alarmed by the user agreement, and I'm still using it on my Windows partition. It probably is the best browser out there — Safari just works better on OSX. iCloud Keychain, password suggestion and their integration with the operating system aren't as smooth on Chrome.

 

 

Rant: I was having a (W)LAN party with my friends and I was the only one without an internet connection for 80% of the time, and when I finally got the internet connection, I went through a lot of frustration and trouble trying to install Windows on my laptop. After everyone was too tired to play anything, I got it to work at last — apparently, it failed because I had an external drive attached.

...nobody for Firefox? Bah.

 

EDIT: Nvm, looked on the previous page. I kinda like the new UI.

I propose a name change for firefox. It should be called "Mozilla Chrome"

Honestly, the only reason I haven't switched to chrome completely now is the fact that I'm too lazy to make the switch.

I watched the livestream.  It looked excellent.

Rant (two for one special offer).

1. After reserving and waiting for it to come back into stock, I went to buy my new 'H.D.' laptop today. The retailer (Argos) website clearly states that it is 1920 by 1080 resolution. However, after many phone calls by the helpful staff, it appears to be only 1366 by 768 - they could not confirm as they aren't allowed to open the box! :P
After more research this evening it seems they had got the model number wrong on the website. It is in fact an HP Pavilion 15-p011na (SRP £400) being sold as a 15-p099na(SRP £499) for £399 claiming that it is discounted from £549.

I did not buy it.

2. Slightly disappointed at not being able to try the mythical Pdn4, I went for cycle - got a puncture and walked back. :(

Good job I'm an athiest or I'd take it personally! :roll:

Oh well, Lance Armstrong was correct - it's not about the bike. Shame modern commerce is based on his ethical values though.

The John Oliver vid. re: net neutrality is popular.

I have slow 1 mbps DSL and even that's expensive for me, let alone FIOS.

btw, Comcast, Verizon and all large monopolies would be rendered impotent if only everyone acknowledged zero point energy (connective-force) including all research & technologies which has attempted to tap into ZPE for free energy, diagnostics & so forth.

FWIW probably most of those reading this (if any) will say "wha the H is this?" and that's  either because they're conventional - i.e. if they're in the older age-bracket, they may be well-meaningly perplexed by anything outside the parameters of practiced rote or intuitive talent (both of which states result in brilliant works)  and/or (such as if they're in the younger age-bracket) because they've become masculanizedly conditioned - i.e. they prefer to latch onto "things and facts, (however abstract the facts)" more than to "ideas and emotions" (however clearly the emotions are conveyed)

 

And that's exactly my point. IMO the reason the Western world has reached the state its in today, is because they tend to:

Say what they know factually versus experientially Knowing what they say

 

Documentualized "fact" usually does not = experientualized truth of individuals.

 

For example, there was a story about a young woman whose kid brother was mute. She couldn't understand his excitement over a "silly" amber-shard of glass. First later, when she became blind, and by an accidental "fluke" excitedly regained her vision when she put her brother's amber-shard near her eye - first then did she gain an understanding of "why" the amber-shard used to excite her brother.

So - had you chatted with her prior to her blindness,

you might have heard her saying what she knows about her brother

But - had you chatted with her after her brother's glass-shard restored her vision,

you might then have heard her knowing what she says about her brother

So that's it in a nutshell - my opinion for why the world is in the mess its in.

People talk at each other (not to each other) in real life and on forums all the time - making rash assumptions without knowing where each other is at. The irony, is that even the most seemingly "logical, rational" advice which is well-intentioned and well-meaning can seem (emphasis on "seem") as if John is so helpful to Jane, whereas the advice is actually such a loaded issue to Jane, that it harms more than helps her (even though, based on surface appearance, the entire public is positive that John is the wronged-one even though he's actually the wrong-one.

The mute boy's sister was well-intentioned but she was not Knowing.

(until later)

The forum-posting public can be well-intentioned but not Knowing.

The real-life public can be well-intentioned but not Knowing.

 

All it takes is to painfully dredge up some imagination & some emotion. That's all it takes to become non-assuming.
