    Microsoft's Build powwow has concluded and there were many key takeaways for business technology buyers to ponder. The big question: What did we learn? Here are six key themes that emerged. Microsoft conceded mobile and is betting that it can keep Windows relevant by connecting it to Apple's iPhones, Android and Internet of things devices. CEO Satya Nadella at Microsoft's analyst briefing didn't mention the smartphone once in his opening remarks. However, Nadella said mobility 10 times. Here's his view:When you say that it's going to be multi-device experiences, then the next logical thing is the data and the AI...

    Leading Dutch politician Geert Wilders has criticized US president Barack Obama for not vetoing the Security Council resolution against Israel on Friday and advised Israel to ignore the UN resolution. Wilders, the founder and leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, who has dominated Dutch polls during the year of 2016, wrote on his Facebook page:"Obama betrayed Israel. Thank God for Trump. My advise to my Israeli friends: ignore the UN and keep building more and more settlements." Wilders was voted politician of the year 2016 when 40,000 people participated in the annual public election held by Dutch TV-show ‘EenVandaag’. He...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has said Israel should continue building in Judea and Samaria, insisting the Jewish state should "keep moving forward" in response to Arab terrorism. Speaking to the UK's Daily Mail, Trump emphasized his support for the State of Israel, and appeared to veer away from previous comments in which he declared that he would stay "neutral" on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Trump referenced the "thousands of missiles being launched into Israel," by Arab terrorists prior to the 2014 Gaza war, asking rhetorically: "Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?" He also said he...

    Fellow Freepers, I am looking into getting my son (13, soon to be 14) a build-it-yourself computer kit. He has ripped apart a couple of old laptops, but they don't have compatible parts. I am looking for a kit that he can use to learn to put together a working cpu that is usable and can be loaded with an operating system. I see a couple available on Amazon, but one looks too simplistic and the other is too complicated. When it comes to hardware and operating systems, I am very much a novice. I welcome your insights. Thanks so...
  • Startegy Ad Idea Aimed at Obama and Statists of All Stripes

    07/24/2015 3:59:17 PM PDT · by Secret Agent Man · 25 replies
    My idea is to take Obama's idiotic "You didn't build that" and slam it back in their faces. Have ads focusing on a specific business owner, showing their actual business growth/extension plans and ideas. Explaining the bottom line in more employees they will need, expected growth of their business, etc. Then end with the person saying some kind of statement: We had all this planned and ready to go, but Mr. President, we didn't build it, because of you and how your policies have negatively affected our business. A whole damn series of ads like this could be created, the...

    Smoother and more stable, but Start menu and tablet issues remain Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10, named 10122, which includes an effort to fix file association hijacking, where a newly installed application becomes the default for opening documents with a particular extension, such as PDF, docx, jpg or MP3. In Windows 10, neither desktop nor Universal (UAP) apps will be able to show a dialog prompting the user to change default file associations. Instead, users get a prompt when they next open a document of a type handled by a newly installed app. The prompt defaults...

    Build 2015 Microsoft has released preview Build 10074 of Windows 10 at its Build developer event in San Francisco. It is only a week since the previous preview build (10061) arrived, but this one is a milestone available even to users who prefer to stick with the more stable releases – the “slow” update cycle in Windows Insider terms. This also means you can get an ISO image for a clean install. Windows 10 is set for release this summer, according to Microsoft, with AMD CEO Lisa Su letting slip that it may be done by the end of July....

    Boeing has issued a formal request for proposals (RFP) to 15 locations around the United States that will bid for the work of building its forthcoming 777X jet, according to a source close to the discussions. Washington state is one of the 15 sites under consideration. The others include both existing Boeing locations and new “greenfield” sites, the source said. Boeing spokesman Doug Alder confirmed Saturday that the RFPs were sent out late Friday afternoon and into the evening.

    One thousand new housing units for Jews will be built in the Etzion Bloc, in Judea, the Minister of Construction and Housing annnounced. Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) met Wednesday with the Etzion Bloc Regional Council head Davidi Perl and discussed continued construction in the region, despite international pressure not to build homes for Jews there. The minister decided, in the course of the meeting, to make sure that “meaningful progress” takes place as regards several construction plans in the region. This includes the beginning of the planning process for a new 1,000-home neighborhood in the Gvaot neighborhood in Alon...

    There's essentially NO ammo available for retail sale in Colorado. None at all. Not in popular calibers like 9mm, .40 S&W and .45ACP. The fascist Obammunists have locked up the domestic supply and are shutting down imports. Why the hell don’t we conservatives set up a NEW ammo manufacturer in Texas and then refuse to sell to the FedGov. Maybe even make it a co-op, with member-owners getting first dibs on production. I’m sure we could get any number of offshore companies to build us a turnkey ammo factory in Texas. I’m sure ammo companies in Italy, China, Korea, Israel,...

    ..... Until very recently, the guiding document for governments in Israel had been a 2004 report authored by leftist attorney Talia Sasson, who recommended the dismantling of many new communities, termed “outposts,” in Judea and Samaria. Sasson later ran for Knesset on the far-left Meretz party list. Baker said that much of the trouble relating to these communities was due to Sasson's bad faith in preparing the report. She had been asked by then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to prepare a report on “unauthorized outposts, but when she produced the report she termed them 'illegal' outposts.” The government, Baker said, had...

    Washington is urging Israel not to allow construction in the area known as E-1 between Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim as a possible response to the Palestinian bid for statehood recognition next week at the UN, The Jerusalem Post has learned. Building in E-1, which would create contiguity between Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim to the northeast beyond the Green Line, is something various Israeli governments have long wanted to do, but which US opposition has prevented.

    The president's speech calls to mind a "West Wing" episode in which speechwriter Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe) explains to the staff of some liberal house members why he won't insert a line in President Bartlet's upcoming speech. They want the president to attack Republican tax cut proposals as financing "private jets and swimming pools" for the wealthy. As Seaborn argues: Henry, last fall, every time your boss got on the stump and said, "It's time for the rich to pay their fair share," I hid under a couch and changed my name. I left Gage Whitney making $400,000 a year,...

    The "You didn't build that," gaffe by Candidate Obama pushes OFA to play defense for the first instance in more than a month.  The Bain attacks have fallen on deaf ears.  Polls show that the opinion of Romney has become more positive since the Bain-bashing started last February by the Gingrich team.  OFA rushes to blunt the damage by the "Build" ad released by American Crossroads.  Is it enough?  Sure.  Except that Candidate Obama's remark will play like a golden oldie for the rest of the campaign.  OFA cannot interpret Mr. Obama's remarks any more than we can.   OFA claims...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke during Tuesday’s Jerusalem Day celebration at the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva in Jerusalem. As he entered the Beit Medrash, over a thousand students sang the words with which Moses blessed the tribe of Binyamin: "And to Binyamin he said: Beloved by God, he will dwell in security." The head of the yeshiva, Rav Yaakov Shapira, welcomed the Prime Minister with warm words for his forthright speech in the US Congress, adding that our "roadmap" is the Bible and that all of the land of Israel stems from Jerusalem and has the same indivisible status as the...
