    Commented in Meals On Wheels Serves Up Breakfast, Lunch And Community At Local Diner

    It's a wonderful and amazing idea. That being said, I hope that this is in addition to (and not instead of) home deliveries to those senior citizens who can't drive or get out of the house easily. I feel that the sector that lacks transportation is the one that needs the meals the most. But hopefully the idea is that this diner set-up will soon turn a modest profit, and the profit can go into providing meals for those who can't get out and about.

    Commented in Why I'm boycotting TurboTax this year

    It doesn't run on Linux anyway, so I'd rather spend a little extra and get a CPA to do it, than to use TurboTax. A good CPA will be able to save you more than his fee anyway.

    Commented in People still want plastic bottles, says Coca-Cola

    Completely agree about "consumers want it", and I feel that one day this will come back to bite them. This sort of quote they made is one that will be a PR nightmare for them a few years down the road. I really doubt that me saying "people wanted me to do it" would be a good defense against me doing something unethical, after all!

    Commented in Column: Is a supermarket discount coupon worth giving away your privacy?

    Well-researched reporting here. That is scary stuff, and I don't buy the excuse from Ralph's program that they are just including all possibilities and not distinguishing between job applicants and discount program customers. That in itself is a sign of bad planning and/or bad management.

    Commented in HP Remotely Kills Perfectly Good Ink Cartridge With DRM

    Yeah that is scary and crazy. I have an HP printer and when it dies I'd probably get some other brand, maybe some generic off-brand printer that will handle generic off-brand inks. I'm not enrolled in the Instant Ink program (thankfully) so my HP does just fine for now. I can't believe that they can make the printer stop using the existing ink cartridge when people quit subscribing. My printer is old enough that it doesn't have Wi-Fi, so that probably helps somewhat (it can't talk to anything except my computer).

    Commented in 'Apple Watch Connected' Program Will Offer Rewards for Working Out at Participating Gyms

    Although incentivized programs can be good, in this case I wouldn't want a company knowing how often I work out and what I do there. I actually leave devices at home when I go to the gym. Not even my phone knows I'm there!

    Commented in He Wanted a Unicorn. He Got ... a Sustainable Business

    This is definitely worth a read. It covers not only the owner's journey, but also the issue of perspective (Silicon Valley vs elsewhere).

    Commented in Google cutting web cookies, ending lucrative tracking tool for advertisers

    Excellent question. They seemed to be careful not to say, but I'm predicting it will be session storage variables or browser storage variables (both of which already exist). So it's basically just a similar (but not identical) technology with a different name.

    Commented in Britain bans betting on credit cards to fight gambling addiction

    Reuters has managed to make a simple headline confusing.... Betting on credit cards? "Visa in 1st place, Mastercard comes in 2nd....." I think instead they mean "Britain bans paying bets by credit card to fight gambling addiction."

    Commented in How to switch from Windows 7 to Chrome OS CloudReady

    Whaaat? The article says "You will also be unable to easily access your local drive. This operating system relies almost entirely on Google Drive for storage." Sounds like a nightmare to me. Even for those who already have Google accounts, this means you have to pretty much rely on 24/7 internet connection. For people with laptops (who bring them places), that's not a guarantee. I'd rather work on documents directly on my hard drive.

    Also, back when I was using Google Docs to collaborate with a friend on a document, it was an absolute nightmare - typing speed was laggy - something that would have never happened if I'd just used Libre Office locally with "track changes" and then send it to the friend so the friend and I could see edits.

    I actually switched from Windows 7 to Linux. Needless to say I can access my local drive seamlessly! And Linux was a massive improvement over Windows 7.

    Commented in The Zanco Tiny T2 Makes Even the Smallest Cell Phones Look Gigantic

    Until I read this comment, I was thinking "why would anyone want a phone that small?!" Note to self: Never buy a used one of these phones.

    Commented in Mozilla lays off about 70 employees including senior staffers

    Noooo! The issue for me is the lack of good alternatives to Firefox. All of the Chrome-based browsers (even the open source varieties) have a ridiculous number of settings that default to extremely poor privacy. As a result, it takes me forever to set up a Chrome-based browser to the privacy settings I want. By contrast, Firefox makes it super-easy in just a few clicks to get the settings to what I want. For someone who re-installs their operating system every couple of years such as myself, this makes a bigger difference than you might think. I actually don't even HAVE a Chrome-based browser installed on my machine at the moment, for exactly this reason.

    Commented in We’re approaching the limits of computer power – we need new programmers now

    Also, I think it's important to distinguish inefficient code, bloat, and helpful abstractions for other humans to read (separate things in themselves) from important features. For example, I feel that there shouldn't be so much of a focus on lean code that important but non-end-user-visible things like security features are omitted or weakened.

    Commented in ‘Most realistic’ plant-based steak revealed

    Yeah, I don't care how realistic it LOOKS, it's the taste that matters more. I'm sure they did a lot to make it taste good too, but I agree the combo sounds weird.

    Commented in What went wrong with virtual reality?

    Yeah, I personally don't find the idea appealing of putting a cumbersome pair of goggles on my head. I did like the analysis they did and how they interviewed people and did a well-researched piece. Good journalism, and I can't see myself doing VR anytime soon.

    Commented in Many millennials are worse off than their parents -- a first in American history

    That's pretty depressing. The article shows that a major issue is the skyrocketing cost of housing. Even those who have managed to get a job immediately out of college are still not financially ready for home ownership at the age that their parents were able to buy a first home.
