2  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Is a Windows PC/laptop the way to go for everyday use? on: September 13, 2015, 07:04:25 PM
I can do almost anything with my iPad, but there are still some sites out there that insist on still using Flash, or just don't like Safari for some reason (find this less true each year, especially now that Flash is dying). You do need to have your iPad set up to run things, but I rarely need to go find an app to get something done anymore. Between all the cloud services, free apps like Pages and Numbers, and if you have a Microsoft 360 account, Office, I can do school work on it easily. And iOS 9 is making it easier to multitask on it. Still, I sometimes want a big screen to work on.

Sounds like you want a Windows machine though. The only hassle is constantly running updates and that there is so much crap software that the issue can be finding the good stuff. You would eliminate all your problems.

All that said, I am a Mac guy, and one it comes to laptops, not many come close, and if they do, they are as much money as a Mac. The touchpad alone is far and away better than any PC and I rarely have to update anything or worry about security (not that they are impervious to viruses, but it's easier to control). It used to be the same way on a Mac as you describe with your Chromebook, but Macs have become quite popular (in all the colleges I have attended, they are easily the most popular brand I see), and now we have a current version of Office, free office type apps that work with Office, and a lot of very good software in general, so it isn't hard to do anything on it. Some sites still don't like Safari, but you can always use Firefox/Chrome on it.

I do have a PC for gaming, but that's the only thing I use it for. Everything else is Macs/iPad.

My fellow veterans here at GT know that personnel in a unit (platoon/squad/fire team) must not only know their own job, but be proficient below and above their current role in the team.

Actually for us AF maintenance guys, we know our own job and let the other guy do their own job. icon_biggrin

Off topic, but the college I go to is on a Navy port(?) and they have a flyer up for a job in which the person "...must be familiar with the military (Army, Navy, Marines, C.G)..." They literally didn't include the AF, but list the Coast Guard?!

Listening to a few different podcasts by Apple journalist/developers and they had a good point about the iPad Pro. iPad app store sales are already weak, and this new iPad is staring with zero users, so where is the incentive for developers to design apps for it? And, why would professionals buy one if there are no pro apps? I heard one popular OS X professional drawing program maker released a note today saying they have no plans to support the iPad Pro basically for this reason.

It's like gaming on the TV. Without an included controller, are game developers going to want to make games when they are limited to the remote's controls? Sure some will, but will there be enough for this to really catch on?

I'm sure a few people will buy it to read their comics and some artists will find use for it but I don't see this as solving Apple's decreasing ipad sales problem.

I don't either, but iOS 9's new split screen features along with the bigger screen will go along way into making people more productive on it. Having 2 apps open for note taking or referencing other apps will be very helpful. As a wannabe Surface user (I liked it, but I prefer OS X iOS to Windows), I think having iOS 9 along with a stylus would be awesome for school, but I just bought a MacBook, so no sale for me.

The iPad Pro is a insta-buy. I'm still rocking an iPad 3, which is struggling a lot lately. As the iPad is mainly my bed-side (and couch-side) computer, a bigger screen to watch Netflix on would be awesome. And the keyboard would make it a lot more useful.

The Apple TV is a tentative-buy. It has a lot of potential, and if the app store takes off like it has for iOS and watchOS, it'll become an insta-buy.

Ironically, the one thing that I own that desperately needs to be upgraded... won't be. I'm still rocking an aging iPhone 4s, but it's still doing the job I need it to do, so I think it'll stick around for one more year.

I bought the Mini 3 just for bed time use, I often found the iPad Air difficult to hold if I am lying on my back, and the Mini is perfect there. Of course I don't watch TV/movies on it, just YouTube stuff or reading.

I take it you aren't on a free upgrade type of contract or upgraded to one of the new contracts in which you pay less unless you get a new phone, ravenii? Otherwise, you would just be paying your cell service provider for a new phone that you aren't take advantage of. I can't imagine still using a 4s! If there was a cheaper way, I would be tossing my 6 for a 6s.

Opposite for me, too much to buy!  Sadly not much in the way of really new exciting features (Live Photos and 4K Video are certainly very welcome from my standpoint), but lots of overall improvements that should be nice.

Already ordered a mini 4.  Will upgrade phone and TV as well as soon as they come out.  Not sure on the Pro/Pencil (aka Microsoft Surface lol), but who am I kidding, I rarely can resist something new.

The Mini needed an update, I have a 3 and it struggles a bit on iOS 9. For that matter my iPad Air 1 struggles a bit on 9. I was ready to purchase a new full size iPad too, just because I want better performance, but the pro just seems too big for me. Although I had a Surface and liked the stylus enough that I would love one on an iPad. Will wait and see what the reviews say I guess. Curious if it lives up to the hype, because even on the Surface, which uses the stylus really well, it wasn't perfect. I want to see if Apple can do it better.

I am sure I will get the new TV eventually, but it didn't convince me that I need to buy one right now.

Phone is waiting another year.

I am most excited about watchOS 2 next week.

To be fair Arclight, I know that you served in a "different" time, as did I. But you know that the women that did giggle are just POGs and  probably never hold a rifle until they have to re-qual at the range.  Men are just as guilty doing that as well, and i can't blame them. Those rear echelon types have a different job and role.  The women that desire to become Rangers or any other elite force WILL take this shit seriously.

Yikes Kato, I served about the same time you did and don't consider it a different time!

I can't speak to combat because I was in the AF noncombat job, but in jobs that I had that required lots lot grunt work or weapons, the majority of the women were not going to give anyone a chance to say they couldn't hack it, they made sure of it. Sure there were women who couldn't do everything thrown at them, but there were just as many guys who couldn't either.

Honestly, Arclight's might be ok if he was 90 and that was the culture, but it honestly it isn't deserving of a reply.

Well we all think are opinions are right, sorry if I came across too strongly. This is just like TWD thread all over again.

Edit:
Hepcat, you might want to read this forum a bit more regularly before accusing me of being in all these threads. I don't watch any of the shows mentioned here except the AMC shows, nor do I see hardly any of the movies. Of course with CeeKay gone, we aren't  talking very many threads anymore. I watch about 2 hours of a tv week outside of soccer (if that) and I watch about 1 movie every 3 months at most. I have nothing to say even if I wanted to usually.

@Bullwinkle The Road Warrior was silly in many places, it gets a pass because I was 13 or when I first saw it. Still, if fuel is the main commodity/currency, a truck full might be worth all that. As well as because Australia is huge and they need to get around. They were very simple movies as well, there wasn't even enough scenes with dialogue to get too upset about the acting.

Which I never did Hepcat, don't put words in my mouth. I never once implied my opinion is better, just that I do not like these kind of movies. I would love to discuss movies here, but I have very different tastes in movies than most here, which is why you almost never see me in Tv/movie threads here, I just don't watch the same kind of stuff as you guys.

That said, I don't find the the explanations in this thread as adequate. Where you quoted me, I was trying to say that people are wasting their time defending the movie to me, nothing they could say would make the movie seem reasonable or good and not to take it too seriously. They come across as rationalizations to make the movies plot make sense and ignore the past movies that this movie is based on. It's not contrarian, it's a difference in taste/opinion.

But sure, you guys are all idiots for liking mindless action movies. Happy?

Edit: I should add Hepcat, your post makes it sound like anyone who doesn't like this incredibly great movie is simply being contrarian.

I don't remember it being filled with milk, just water... they were on the way to gastown to trade it for gas.
It seems that there is plenty of gas and water, just not in the same place, hence the need for trade.

There was the time where they were filling be buckets from the tanker, Max asked what is it, they said breastmilk.

One thing I keep wondering about this new movie, what was the point of the blood line/blood bag thing? Not having a blood line didn't seem to affect the war-boy. If having a blood bag is important, why would you strap them to the front of your car?

War-boys basically need regular blood transfusions. When the initial war party went out, Nux needed a fresh transfusion while the other ones were still fairly fresh. Instead of being left behind he strapped his 'blood-bag' (Max) to the front of his car. Multi-tasking lives on in the post-apocalyptic future.

This was the only thing that really bugged me.  Did the apocalypse just destroy bacteria or somehow stop infections?  They never clean the puncture hole, they never seem to wash the equipment, etc.  I can't imagine why they wouldn't have died from disease long before anything else.   

Not to mention even having a lab to determine blood types.

That wouldn't have helped Max. That semi could go for days without needing gas!

I am guessing this movie is an alternate reality to the original movies since Max is young again? So we are only talking maybe 5 years since the breakdown of society at most. Just like Beyond Thunderdome they make it look like it's been 100 years. None of which jives with how the Road Warrior worked where gas is the most important resource. So I am guessing Mad Max and Road Warrior didn't happen in this world.

As Kato said, it's all a matter of opinion and you guys shouldn't take me too seriously. If you liked the movie, great. I hated it and you guys can explain it all you want and it will never convince me.

Well they had drums too! Huge ones! Of course those were just there to make sure everyone kept pace. Perfect sense.

I didn't have a problem with the paint part, other than that there would be a lot better ways to get the drug into your system than to spray paint your teeth silver. And making aerosol cans must have been a bitch with what limited technology they seem to have. It's like they came up with the idea just because it would look outrageous on film or something.

Gas is a commodity, powering a car to drive around while powering a huge rack of amplifiers is waste of gas. At least everyone else had a purpose. It's like they forgot the whole premise of the original movie or something. Gas doesn't even matter in this movie, you can drive something that gets about 5mpg across all over of Australia and it is never a concern. At least they had a lifetimes worth of putrid breast milk though! Tongue

Oh and they can stop and have conversations, with no fear of anyone catching up to them, but all truck inspections or repairs must be made while moving. The movie was just one stupid thing after another. It makes a good action movie, just don't actually think about it (or just rationalize it).

I just don't like action movies, although I did as a kid, so I loved the Road Warrior. But this movie was so choreographed, and what backstory there was, was just so mind numbingly stupid I couldn't get past it. I usually avoid movies like this because I know I won't like them, but this got so much praise, I thought it might be different. I thought it might be a return to the Road Warrior after a horrible Beyond Thunderdome.

I'm "angry" because I can't believe anyone could think "Oh, they are transporting a tanker of breast milk from 12 women across Australia" and think that makes any sense. How the world is short on gas, yet they got a guy who just loves playing guitar riffs as they drive through dust storms. Etc, etc... It was just action for the sake of action. Scenes and plot lines just because they might look cool instead of having any meaning or relevance (like the blood thing). The Road Warrior had its silly moments, but it made sense. They have gas, the bad people want it, and they have a dream of going someplace better. No blue dust storms or perfectly placed motorcycle jumps, just a highway and an awesome car chase.

That was pretty clearly spelled out, too, I thought.

Probably was, the opening scenes of the movie were not doing much for me attention span. The rest of the movie that particular subject matter seemed trivial and quickly forgotten. Came across as an excuse for a weak plot more than anything else. "We need a reason for Max to get strapped to the front of a car. That sure would look cool and be kind of shocking." They of course dropped it after the opening scene.

Kudos to you for paying attention Bullwinkle!

Gratch, you should really watch the Road Warrior. Same thing, one group driving a big semi (full of gas this time, not breast milk!), while another group tries to stop them. It does show its age a bit now, but for the most part it is well acted, and it is full of action. It isn't the visual splendor the new movie is, but it's still pretty well done. Mad Max is also good, but could be considered a bit slow and its more of a low budget B movie.

One thing I keep wondering about this new movie, what was the point of the blood line/blood bag thing? Not having a blood line didn't seem to affect the war-boy. If having a blood bag is important, why would you strap them to the front of your car?

Hollywood to me means full of special effects and lacking realism. Yes, I know I should have just said that.

I know it won awards, critics loved it, everyone loved it. I thought it looked horrible from the trailers but I saw so much praise for it I thought I must be wrong. Boy was I right to begin with, so silly and I couldn't figure out what the point of anything was throughout the movie other than an excuse to drive somewhere and get attacked. Nothing made any sense to me. Guy playing guitar? The blood line? It's like they took Beyond Thunderdome and said how can we make it more out there and stupid? Parts like the red head falling for warboy were just painful to watch. A tanker full of breastmilk from a dozen women, it would have taken decades, can you imagine the smell?

Part of the problem is I let they hype get to me. I expected a modern, well done Road Warrior. The special effects were well done, that's about it.

After Birdman and now this, I am done listening to critics.

ATB's transphobia aside for a second, there's been talk of similar additions to the Norwegian language recently, though they come off as a little more sensible than the suggestions in the image above.

The Norwegian word for "he" is "han", while the word for "she" is "henne". The gender neutral variant would be "hen", which makes a lot of sense. I don't think it's an official part of the language yet, but I don't think there would be much resistance to the concept.

Is it needed? Is there a large population that needs/wants this? When would we use such terms? If in public and you assume the person you are talking to is transgender so use these gender neutral terms, and they are not, is it an insult? But then again, doesn't a transgender person still want to be called him/her? If you know someone who is transgender and they want to be referred to by gender neutral terms, great. Not sure we need official words.

It is stupid, but who cares?

The University of Tennessee's Office of Diversity and Inclusion posted it though, so they are kind of just doing their job. It was a request is all. Of course the religious right is going to go nuts over it, hence why Fox is covering it. I am sure you are thoroughly outraged ATB, after all there isn't anything more serious going on we should be talking about.

Why do you have a duty to watch the show Blackjack?

You guys are weird, I complain about TWD being too slow, the characters annoying, and everyone here thinks I am nuts. This show I liked and everyone seems to think it was too slow and the characters are annoying. icon_smile

Satellite Reign is getting really good word of mouth, so maybe that. I never played Syndicate, but supposedly its a modern day successor to that that.
