So who's estimation is that on flash being 99% of all personal computers? Because I'm pretty sure their exaggerating juuuust a little bit.

Yeah it's most likely only 90%

....a security hole, by design.  It amazes me that Adobe is even allowed to sell their cr*p.  Maybe what we need to do is import some pragmatic Russians....to act as an over site committee.  My web mail page and most websites are starting to look like the dreaded AOL homepage.

We don't NEED RSS feeds, podcasts, Twits, Tweets or for that matter ADs on every square inch of web space.  We d*mn sure don't NEED Adobe or even MS Office  for that matter.  We do need a good tight spreadsheet program.

I know that the reason the television companies gave for bombarding us with commercials, was to keep television free to the home.  Well NOW, we pay for the TV and still have the commercials...huh?  The internet is following the same path.

We also need a web page standard...period.  One that works in any browser and shows the same page to every browser.  (yes, I know they are working on this).  I shouldn't need Java or Adobe flash to view a d*mn webpage.  Ooooo but then I won't be able to see all the pretty colors and other crap, all but hiding the information that said web page is supposed to be providing.  Java for example has three firewall entries....I wonder why?  Adobe has like 6 or 7 firewall entries....thats why there is never any Adobe products on my computers.

Oh the HORROR, I just had a terrifying thought....in a news flash that rocks the world, Google buys Adobe!  Wouldn't that be a poisonous cup of tea?

 

The "CLOUD" is the biggest mistake this country will have ever made.

Standards already exist but are not complied with. Example http://www.maximumpc.com  has 65 errors and 20+ warnings in the index.html .

Indeed. I'm sure anyone with half a brain or more would have stopped ready that before the second paragraph.

I think Lhot might be Steve Jobs' MaximumPC handle.
