    (Learn it. Love it. Live it.)
    Leave it.
    Just like the TV, the internet is making itself unworthy.
    I have 5 computers sitting right here and the only one worth a dam is a 12 year old desktop with XP on it. And it’s not “connected” to anything else. The rest are barely functional. They work fine, but even their best is still minimal. sigh

    I think I was more functional with the Commodore I bought in 1983.
    35 years later this top of the line Win 10 machine is a mere toy in comparison.
    The end is getting closer.

    Ghost, I figured out the direction computers need to take, but it’s a functional and sales approach. My fault is that I’m not a computer engineer or a geek.

    Instead of making them less functional over time, they need to make them more valuable and functional as time progresses. I sense they want this, with apps that add functionality, and the cloud (WTFTI), or the internet, to hold the data. If I find that I love my phone, smart, 1 each, ore and more over the years, I may just desire the daylights out of a more spiffy one in about 3-6 years (more like 7 for me). As it is, I grudgingly spit through my teeth and wonder why these devices devolve, 404, and ebb to a stop after 3 years.

    My 10 year-old Toshiba does a fine job, too. It couldn’t carry the load of this big MACiavellian behemoth on my desktop, but it does do fairly nicely in its place.

    The pimply-faced kids at the brain-centers, the puzzle palaces of the gods, have their own ideas. Do not miss the new report on Drudge. Let’s see, here is the link. This’ll scare the shit out of you.

    Or, they could just put a clock in there, where your computer gets really great for about 2 years, and then catches fire suddenly.

    What I see with my eyes belongs to me, what I see with my phone belongs to everybody.

    They collect parts 1,3,5,7,9 and automatically fill in parts 2,4,6,8,0 like so much drywall mud.
    Soon, there is nothing but mud, no other substrait necessary, until pressure is applied, and the whole thing collapses.

    Like large gov’t, large companies will collapse under their own weight in time.
