apparently, i’ve been solving so many problems with this DVD burning thing, I’ve turned myself into a problem, LOLZ.
If you look carefully however, that isn’t true. Technology standards are pretty lame in large institutions like universities, govt offices and so on. People all through the hierarchy do not use Blu-Ray. High speed broadband, maybe made pervasive by wireless, would’ve probably been the best thing to do, but alas! the profit margins don’t quite look sexy for bright globe-trotting geniuses trained to solve problems. So, we have to sit and discuss Blu-ray here.
Imagine what Jini had promised long ago - back in 1993 - with today’s spread of the internet. (Hey, I just noticed its too bright and sunny for my strained eyes… er… umm… whatever… sorry…)
Pervasive free wireless, I must move to Mountain View, really!
But Mountain View is blurred and foggy aaprently, this time of the year, so since it’s not that clear, maybe it will interfere with digital signals… The rest of us who dont live in Mountain View need BluRayz??? LOLZZZZZZ!!!
I’ve been tossing around a few discs lately, its not a funny thing, you know, considering the wait and seek times. Lead time is the worst. Hah! M$ has a good set of ways to cut through this, but they never respond to the real end-user market’s demands. They try to decide what the market will be and what is fit for the kids and so on. So, we are here, the tech community, some of us wanting to make transfer of information better and faster and cheaper, and others M$ busy doing their own stuff, totally not communicating with the end-users for feedback. M$ collude with the lawmakers to make grand announcements but don’t deliver. Same old story over the decades.
Why do they brand and package things as new and revolutionary?
Did I digress, transgress?
All I want is general progress in this technology and discussion.
