How to Fix the Economy

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

In his latest book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society, author Jeremy Rifkin describes the effects of not having to pay for anything.

Finding Your File

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

In my books, I recommend that when you copy a file from a computer to your phone that you place it into the Downloads folder. That’s good advice, but don’t expect the Downloads app to find the file.

Curse the upgrade!

I swear, after so many years in the illogical computer business, I have a damn fine reason to be wary of software upgrades: Sometimes upgrades are the worst possible things you can do.

The Last Version of Windows

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Windows Logo

It’s official. Windows 10 will be the last, final, ultimate version of Windows. You’ll never see Windows 11 or Windows Optimus Prime or — even if Google’s immortality project is successful — Windows 3000.
