The market could use more entrants, whether they are hardware, software or service providers. From this standpoint it's a good thing. Questionable marketing has happened before and will happen again too.

Just because hype and fashion won doesn't mean he was wrong about that one  tellme

Actually it does. The people he said it doesn't appeal to are using it for exactly what he said they wouldn't. It took me less than half an hour using an iOS device to see that coming and I've never bought an Apple product in my life. Nor do I plan to.

Also he got the basics wrong. The virtual keyboard on a multitouch smartphone, even the earlier cruder ones, are a lot less clumsy than the physical keyboards on the Windows Mobile devices he was bragging about. That's without even getting into the multitude of other problems in Microsoft's earlier mobile operating systems.

I disagree and in a way you allude to it too. When I first saw the iPod I felt the shiny feel and saw the potential appeal too but ... paying that much for the shininess is a whole different issue. To me what Ballmer was saying is true in principle, that shininess can be had for less, especially when the price point is dictated by more than just cost.

Google has plenty of good products, gmail, search...the usual. But their ad network and analytics are not in that category. The analytics, used by many webmasters and therefore potentially affecting many sites (even counting the 'place the code in the footer' trick) is one of the most overrated online tools.

Same as above.
I use encryption locally (via TrueCrypt) more than any other form.

I can't answer that without moving the thread to the basement  tongue

Seriously though, coordination existed and is being crushed ... unions.
The majority, not saying you, of the people that laugh at the third party idea are the ones that could help create it, by doing something instead of laughing. The people in power that will be most harmed by third party are not laughing but are happy that 'you' are laughing about it.

Two words: Third party.
More words: Only people can make that happen and they can.

In the wake of the Snowden Revelations it's all moot.

Now is the time to stop finger pointing and trying to fix blame. Especially since it should be fairly obvious by now that everybody was in on it - including the public itself for its continuing refusal to face the present reality.

Who really cares what's been done? Or by whom at this point. The big question - the real question - is what we're going to do about this nightmare we've allowed to become real.



This.

Makes for very sad listening, the people (the populace at large) still do have it in their hands though.

I am concerned about underpaying. $1 or $2 overpaying is fine.

Is it known how much I need to add for postage?

too close to be mere coincidence - I am testing it (again)!

Quote from: What's new
- changed (2.5.0.7): Plugins are now locked and will work only with a valid writemonkey donor key.

-so a key is now more needed than ever before. PM coming to a mailbox near you!

Forwarded your details smiley

I have one extra donor key that was kindly offered to me by the developer to give to a friend.

The donor key unlocks plugins that are new to its version 2.5 (plugin details, still in early stage of existence, can be seen on WriteMonkey's what's new page @ http://writemonkey.com/new.php)

Must be supporting member here at DC, first one to send me a PM. I need a full name and email.

Edit:
Of course other established and long standing members are included as well, for example charter members and others

If you haven't tried it yet ... sometimes, despite what is 'normal', these things should be pasted or typed in WordPress' text input and the not visual one

If possible and you get the chance, no hurry, let me know the shipping/handling to Canada.
