    Next to me are sitting two Japanese persons talking about some sciency things in Japanese. I could ask them what you wrote here, but then they would notice that I'm browsing this forum during working hours (what they actually already do) ;-)

    I definitely think otherwise, art and design do have different purposes, a different goal. I'm however not saying that design can't be beautiful or unique.

    Oh I entirely agree with you. Design's purpose is to sell something where as art is to make you think. I usually have issues with some modern art but I can't like everything. :P

    I always love how family can throw a curveball into things. Listening along to the comedy of errors that had plagued the GF's vacation trip planning just makes me shake my head. I'm sure the trip will go well for her as she's on vacation next week.

    At least she's on vacation.

    It's not quite raining yet, just seems that way. It is supposed to though, as the t-storm that rolled through yesterday appears to be hanging around...

    Have you been to the London Design Museum? It's really good. I highly recommend it. I went to the Toronto one and was quite disappointed.
    Yeah visited it last year when it was the 50 year anniversary. Got a limited edition book when I was there to, full of art. Was great.

    We have lots of clouds but still some blue sky. It's getting hotter and apparently hitting 30C by Friday. Which of course means t-storms come the weekend. You could have kept those you know. :P

    We went earlier this year. Was a great place. I'm looking forward to their new building when it's done. It's rather interesting looking.

    Maybe you wrote something terribly offensive, I won't risk that. The Japanese people working in my lab are the nicest people, but they also seem fragile in their never-ending politeness. I wouldn't risk insulting them ;-)

    Maybe that's where he is, captured in a snow storm with no way out. Probably riding the Snowpiercer!

    'Microsoft needs to change', says CEO Satya Nadella | Windows Phone Central

    I love promises!

    I think I'll get that iPhone and in two years if and when everything Nadella dreams of comes true, I'll buy an awesome Windows tablet and phone.

    That actually sounds good. And it might explain the slowness of Microsoft all these years.

    MS was never known as a progressive. There's a reason why they called it the 'lumbering giant'. :P

    If they haven't been sharing code between different projects that explains pretty much everything as to why WP and MS products are complete cluster ****s.

    This code sharing thing combined with the power struggles that will result from it, inserting Nokia into the company including the lay-offs, perusing side-projects like Android phones.

    Yeah, two years could be a little optimistic ;-)

    Dude, Rue pretty much translated what I wrote. But if you need confirmation, there was nothing offensive in there. It's the same stuff as always...me mentioning how tired I am.

    Hell, I'm more worried if I wrote what I wrote correctly than being a smartass and writing something offensive...

    Does the Japanese language suffer with offensive words and regular word being very similar? I know of a couple in Finnish that are like that, well to my ear they sound the same to a Finnish person completely different.

    I won't go into their fun with phonetics fire story...

    I'm amazed to hear them confirm how much of a cluster**** things have been. That's nice PR. Let's now see some results and show us you mean business with good hardware and more importantly, improved support and software.

    Agreed completely. Thing is, being MS and with all the shuffling about, Chregu is probably dead on. We're looking at least 2-3 years I'd say before things start to sort themselves out.
