Might write about music. Might comment on technology. Might get all chatty about parenting. Not sure yet.

Quote reblogged from ParisLemon with 86 notes

The worst work I did was from 2001 to 2004. And the company paid a price for bad work. I put the A-team resources on Longhorn, not on phones or browsers. All our resources were tied up on the wrong thing.

From the now we know department:

Steve Ballmer, speaking to Vanity Fair about his tenure atop Microsoft.

It’s a telling quote. A big part of Microsoft’s current predicament isn’t that they lacked the talent to do what their rivals did — it’s that the talent was directed to focus on the wrong things (or just as bad: the right things at the wrong time).

HP Plans to Break Itself Into Two Mediocre Companies →

parislemon:

Arik Hesseldahl:

HP approached both Lenovo and Dell about the possible sale of its $32 billion (2013 sales) PC operation. In both cases it was rebuffed.

In another case, HP approached two India-based companies, Wipro and Infosys about the possible sale of its $28 billion IT services unit, known as Enterprise Services. Again it was rebuffed.

In a third case, it approached IBM about the sales of its $1.2 billion Business Critical Server business, but was turned down.

Yikes. In other words, not a lot of choices for the once-great company. So now we’ll get two mediocre ones.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

I Got Bugs

parislemon:

Since the moment it was unveiled at WWDC in June of last year, I’ve been a big fan of iOS 7. While I certainly understand the people who hate change, I am not one of those people. In technology, I welcome change — especially big, bold changes. At the very least, it shows that a company isn’t afraid to experiment. More importantly, it shows that a company isn’t content to rest on its laurels.

So I embraced the gaudy neon and I entered our newly flat world excited. And I remain convinced that in just about every way, iOS 7 is a huge upgrade over the previous iterations. Except one. And it’s a big one.

The software is so inexplicably and inexcusably buggy.

Let me add a datapoint. My entire family runs iOS 7 on iPhone 4Ss (there are 4 of us), plus I have a 3rd gen iPad and a non-retina iPad mini. All of these devices are heavily used, all day. Over the past several months, we have seen exactly one of these crashes. Everything else is fine.

Not sure what is going on.
