I didn't think apple users = google user?

I never stated it as a fact. But, if Google has the lion's share of the search engine biz, then that's what you use. I certainly don't use it because it's a horrible engine and I don't speak for all Apple users. Thus, "Apple users = Google users" is not my implication.

However, Apple having over half the mobile (iPhone, etc.) web usage, I believe it's a good indicator of Apple's impact on future web traffic as a whole. RIM, the makers of Blackberry are #2 at only 19% of mobile web use. Surprising, considering how the US courts deemed that stopping Blackberry usage may crash Wall Street and other financial institutions. Whichever way Apple decides to swing its promotion & support of search engines is going to have an impact... billions of dollars! Still, I find it hard to believe Apple would swing towards Bing unless it is far superior to Google.

@gogogo,

who said Apple owned any search engines or Google for that matter? If you read carefully, I said, " I don't think I will go Bing over Google anytime soon." Just because I mentioned Mac in the same sentence? Google happens to be the default search engine for Safari and that's the only connection.

Btw, I'm a Mac guy, but whoever has the best search engine will be the one I use. Not that I'm a Mac bigot, but I don't think I will go Bing over Google anytime soon.

The regulators wouldn't clear the deal, how? Bing isn't an integral part of the Windoze operating sys. MS isn't trying to monopolize the search engine biz, they're trying to be a part of it. Unless, MS buys up Yahoo!, Google, etc, I don't think it's a deal breaker. Bing will have a certain rate of failure to be the earth's most popular search engine. Btw, no one has a monopoly search engine. There are still dozens out there for different info searches. Some are optimized for specific info. Not all are equal, but Google is the "go to" search engine for sure.

littlebigman,

First of all, you lack reading skills my friend. No one is saying that Tiger wasn't the best player!!! Others & I have mentioned this countless number of times!!! No one stated that Yang was the "Tiger Killer" as you have stated many times. You are twisting what people say to keep this agony of a discussion going.

Sport analysts agree with you? Like I said, when people don't play the sport, they usually end up trash talking on the sideline. Who was the one that mentioned Happy Gilmour? Hey Tiger! YOU CAN DO IT! You're that guy!!

biglittleman,

I was to the point. There is no fluke. Either a player brings his game or he doesn't. Simple as that. The other guy just didn't play well. Because he didn't play well, that was a fluke? You must have looked up the "other" definition for that word. I couldn't find it... and my dictionary is in English!

Also, I really don't think it matters if it's a major or not. The point is Woods lost 2 times to Yang, plain facts I'm afraid. That's this year, right? Two wins against the best player means something, does it not? Woods came to play the Honda Classic, he didn't waste his time on a plane to get beat, did he? The play-by-play showed that Tiger just didn't play well, but you say that's a fluke? Too bad for all the other flukes in history!

biglittleman,

You said: "Yeah, it was fluke. Plain and simple. Whether the fluke was his or Tiger's off day it was still a fluke. Jackseoul if you think Yang is the successor you will be waiting a long time."

You should read carefully before ranting. I specifically stated that Yang may not be the successor: "Woods, as I said is the best out there, but there is always a time for someone else to take his place. It may not be Yang, but someone surely will."

I say play the game before you become a commentator. You're just one sided. If you play the game you should have passion for it. Who knew Mike Tyson would be a has-been and not a celebrated hero. He too was at the top of his game when he lost against Holyfield. That was a fluke too?

@ biglittleman,

if we all had good days in golf, then we wouldn't be paying for someone else's lunch. A bad day being what? Your game went south and you can't recover. You're giving Woods excuses. Maybe he should have practiced more or not had sex the night before, but fair is fair in love and golf. Woods, as I said is the best out there, but there is always a time for someone else to take his place. It may not be Yang, but someone surely will. Then you'll say that Woods was getting too old for the game. Was the fluke the fact that Yang won or that Woods lost?

The Honda Classic is big enough to draw Woods. Give Yang some credit for winning it.

Posted in: Yang's PGA win helps Asian golf surge See in context

Thats two wins for Yang against Woods. That's a great fluke! Remember Phil Mickelson? Next to Woods he's the greatest player alive in my opinion. He only has 3 wins! Lots of runner-up positions though. Woods is in a class by himself, but 2 losses to Yang? That's no fluke!

Posted in: Obama labels nuclear-armed N Korea 'grave threat' See in context

Wow, not too many people here know much about the 2 Koreas and their histories... or the Japanese... or the Chinese... history may have already set a precedence in how a war and its aftermath would unfurl... if it doesn't go to (western) plans.

Japan wants stability in the east. They don't want the 2 Koreas to unite after an offensive by SK, Japan or whoever, unfortunately. Remember, a united Korea would have the largest army in the world, with most men over the age of, say, 22 years old having had military training. Remember what Japan did in Korea during its annexation years? Uniting the 2 Koreas will inevitably bring nationalistic feelings to its citizens... also bringing back some reminders of yesterday's injustices and wrongdoings.

China wouldn't want the largest army sitting next to their borders either for obvious reasons... maybe not obvious to everyone.

The US does not want a larger rogue nation, just in case the ideology changes in a united Korea.

If the two Koreas unite, expect major butt-kissing from major players in the region to persuade a united Korea to be their "friend."

It's a nightmare scenario if a war goes bad. If the two nations write a treaty and remain two, then most in the region would call it a day.

Oh yeah, congratulations to Ahmadinejad! Anyhow, how does Khamenei get his hand up Ahmadinejad's backside to control his moving lips? I'm sure the second term is easier.

Den Den,

Great to see this change. Congradulatiions to Ahmadinejad, but he needs to address the growing gap between rich and poor and between modernized and uneducated. This is hell of a task, especially with certain countries plotting to destabilize Iran.

What change? The police are still beating on the Iranian citizens and there is no freedom. No change there.

When has he ever addressed the poor and the uneducated? He is one of them... well, now he has a fat bank account in Switzerland, but he's still uneducated! He should attend an online school at least...

Now you're thinking just like Ahmadinejad. Someone's always out to get him. I bet he's taking small doses of arsenic to strengthen his system. I wish he would screw up his dose with a large one. I'm tired of his rhetoric. Anyway, what country is trying to destabilize Iran? Iraq? USA? Canada, the Brits, EU... Isreal? The Klingon Nation is more of a threat!

This is a crooked regime like that of North Korea. Nothing we can do to change the "divine assessment." But who the frick are you Khamenei, to know what God wishes for your people? Unless you are God or have a Bat-phone to direct you to the Big Man upstairs, you are Beelzabub's next of kin.

I said before that Ahmadinejad will be back to selling kabobs on the street, but I see now that nobody in Iran would buy them, so he tried hard for a second mandate of mayhem.

bushlover,

jackseoul, you forgot the Stormtroopers from Star Wars. Those guys are cool looking if not totally useless with a laser blaster. Maybe Darth Vader will be there to interrogate POWs.

Yeah, in the rear! Jeong-Il always like them in the rear.

grafton,

Which old man? I don’t see any mention of any OLD men in the strory.

Grafton, the dead man was in his 50s. It's in the 1st line of the 2nd paragraph of the article. OK, I guess if you're in your 50s, then I take back calling him an old man.

Posted in: Strange phone call directs police to Nagano crime scene See in context

Just ask the old man's family or friends if the phone voice (obviously recorded by the police) sound like the man in question. This is obviously strange and or suspicious as everyone suspects, so let's confirm his voice and then move onto other clues (fingerprints on the note, writing style, etc). And then who knows if the "real" killer(s) will be caught by Nagano troopers?

I had mentioned the US, SK & maybe UK going at NK alone, but what I was trying to do was make a point that Japan would not be in an offensive mode.

During the K-War (1950-1953), there were almost 20 countries on the allied side doing everything from combat to troop support. It's idiotic to assume only 1 or 2 countries would attempt to support SK in a new Korean War effort since UN involvement is a certainty.

If you know ancient Korean history, Turkey will be in there for sure (ancient allies). Japan will support. Canada, USA, EU and many Asian nations will also be a part.

On the NK side... Al Qaeda, original Klingons from the 60s, Jabba the Hutt, the Devil, Beelzabub, Cylons, Dracula & friends, the Joker, Hannibal Lecter, the Fang, Goldfinger, Jeong-Il's left hand, Jeong-Il's haircut, Teletubbies... wow, now I'm not so sure who has more friends? China & Russia will support for old time's sake maybe.

Someone mentioned the Japanese army going into Korea. Funny, but it's not going to happen. The last time the Japanese army went into Korea with weapons, they nearly castrated a nation of unwilling participants. The US and SK will do fine by themselves... well the Brits are always aching for a fight.

Yes, the ROK soldiers are tough. Ask any US soldier who has spent time training with them in South Korea. Almost every male in SK over the age of 22 have a military service record and know how to shoot a gun. If you have to mobilize all military-trained men and send them to the border (same for NK), there will be a long stand-off for sure... not sure if war will ensue.

The NK soldiers are also very tough. If you've seen both SK & NK soldiers facing each other at the JSA you will instantly notice that NK soldiers stare right at the SK soldiers who wear big ass sunglasses. Apparently, SK soldiers can't win a staring contest against the commies. I'm not sure if that's true, but the SK soldiers stand with a fierce modified-Tae Kwon Do Stance.

However, let's talk about this. China & Russia, having been the newest kids on the economic block, will they risk their new found success to protect a decrepit old murdering regime? What will they do to the US & its allies if they do anything to provocate NK (it could be as simple as a SK/US soldier's shadow crossing the JSA. It's happened)? Will they side with NK or side with world opinion?

I'm sure there are cases where a foreign father gets custody because the mother realized that she couldn't afford to raise the children herself. This becomes about her survival all of a sudden. The JGov will use these numbers to defend themselves naturally.

I bet getting back to the Kyoto Accord or talking about robots sounds good right about now. Sure Japan wants to be seen in a pure light, but it seems to escape them.

Timtak,

We can mention the "occasional extramarital 'dalliance' of the Japanese and the low divorce rate in Japan, but we are really contemplating about international marriages and child abduction? The two parents in question are of different nationalities, one being Japanese. Does everyone have to change their views on religion or decency so that we can accommodate Japanese rational and eventually marry them?

Japanese children may not be saved from social damage after all, if some of them start buying used panties in Akihabara or they don't move away from home because they have otaku tendencies.

GoodDonkey,

You only choose to quote only a portion of the truth. After the GUI lawsuit Gates invested in Apple! Why, when MS was looking at Apple from 6 feet up? Go to your archives and pull out a couple of pages from tech resources as well as the dailies – you gain perspective on the day to day arguments and the side agreements made by Gates (MS) at the time. Most of the issue between Apple and MS were solved out of court, including the $150000000 question. Half truths are just as much of a lie.

GoodDonkey,

Bill Gates didn't bail out Apple!!! Apple sued Billy-boy for stealing Apple's GUI, which Apple paid MS for developing. The real thief is Gates! Apple laid out a clear & concise Gui which MS thought was a great idea. I believe MS paid $150,000,000 or so under pretense that it was for development. MS also threatened that it would immediately cease development for Word for Mac if Apple won it's case. No more lies!!

To design Windows 7, Microsoft analyzed billions of pieces of data. It studied exactly what PC users do in front of their screens.

Wow, they've been watching you PC users!

Jeff Lee,

Nope. Industries rely very heavily on PCs, especially as servers, and industry use is largely behind the PC's massive market share of over 90%. MACs largely cater to brand-conscious kids who want to be trendy. PC architecture boasts off-the-shelf parts, etc, which makes it relatively easy and economical for industries to upgrade and maintain.

Not so fast! Mac's can run Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, Unix... Also, most mid to large co's use a mix of different servers so that "PC" viruses don't jump from PC to Mac or Unix. I've used NT, Unix & Mac servers. Makes sense huh? Many large co's use Unix or Linus. Mac OS X is a fully certified UNIX operating system. Windows just has a large user base who can't shake Microsoft.

Macs use the same parts as PCs!!! Same Intel chip (for a long time now). Same hard drives, etc.
