- Chicago25 - An epiphany momentI cannot recommend nor speak more highly of this book. This book puts in perspective the many facets of issues women face in the work place, among our personal relationships with significant others, and fighting the "social norm." Sandberg addresses the internal conflicts women face as we try to tackle everything in our lives and why we ought to stand together and change the way we are looked at by society. Best book I've ever read. I'm forever a fan.
- noclaimtofame - Lifesaver for Crohn's sufferersI got this book for my daughter 5 years ago when she was first diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and was unable to eat anything without being extremely ill, as she had too much sugar and wheat in her diet.
She was desperate enough to follow the advice in the book, even though it seemed extreme. After a couple weeks she was much improved. After two years she was able to occasionally eat a few foods that normal people eat (pizza, a hamburger, regular bread). She is now vastly improved to the point where she lives a normal life, although still follows much of the SCD diet. Her doctor asked her how she was able to improved so drastically, and she gave him the SCD information.
If you don't follow this diet or one similar, you cannot recover from this disease just by taking a bunch of pills. Most doctors don't know that "we are what we eat". Our medical system is broken and run by big pharm, but that is another issure.
- A. Meador - Don't be Afraid - it's Exactly the Same or Different......it all depends. Here is Windows 8 explained in a nutshell:
There are 2 components to Windows 8. The Start Screen (Metro) and the Desktop (same as it ever was, mostly).
1) The Start Screen
First, imagine that your start menu has been turned into a screen all by itself. Microsoft only type apps and folders (Internet Explorer, messaging, xbox live account and photos to name a few) can run in this new screen. The new screen is made up of "tiles", which include apps that run on the start screen, as well as the apps you use all the time on the desktop. Think of it as a "one stop shop" for things you access frequently, at a glance as it were.
If you open say, the photos "tile", it goes to a new screen and shows you a big "tile" of the photos in your "my pictures" folder, but also shows you "tiles" of photos you have in facebook, flickr, skydrive etc.. If you want to close this or any Start Screen screen you've just opened, reach to the top and you get a little hand, and drag it to the bottom and it closes, showing you the start screen again. This is one of the only things that seems geared towards use on a touchscreen (ie, drag instead of click "close" button), and using a mouse is still intuitive and easy once you know what to do. These open screens continue to run if not closed in the background, and can be accessed on your desktop mousing over the left side. That's it! Easy. Basically, the Start Screen acts as a stand-alone for mobile devices, or a jazzed up start menu for the desktop.
2) The Desktop
If you don't want to look at the start screen, click the desktop "tile" and voila, you're on your desktop. Just like the old days! Whew! The ONLY thing that is readily different on your desktop is that there is no longer a start menu button/icon. Windows 7 users will already feel at home. You can pin any applications to the task bar. Or, you can click the application you want to launch on the Start Screen, and you instantly pop to the desktop as the app opens. Same as the start menu. Pinned apps will show the most recently accessed documents, and the File Explorer (previously library) will show most recently accessed items.
From the desktop, there are 2 ways to access the start screen again. One is to mouse down to the bottom left corner (sound familiar?) and your Start Screen in miniature opens up. Click it and you go to the Start Screen. Or, mouse over the right corners and you'll get what are called "charms" which are transparent and will pop-up over an open window on your desktop. These consist of search, share, start (screen), devices and settings. Use settings to shut down or restart. Additionally, if you've left anything running on the start screen, mousing over the left side of your monitor will show the windows in miniature, which you can then click on and go to. As far as the Start Screen appearance, you can say what stays or goes just as you can on the start menu. Just drag and drop the tiles to arrange, and try right clicking to see how to change size, pin or get rid of items. You can also view all the applications right out in the open instead of buried in folders.
Another thing that's not necessarily geared to touch screens, is that things scroll sideways when using the Start Screen apps. Not up and down. By rolling your mouse wheel (if you have one) the screen will scroll sideways instead. Since 16:9 monitors are so popular now, vertical real estate is at a premium. Applications and browsers are doing away with topside menus. So, they're leveraging the horizontal space you have, and adding to it.
- Fast FAST boot
- Amazing installation process (if doing fresh build or upgrade)
- Clever and easy new organizational structure
- Files/folders finally make sense
- Multi platform - can access everything on PC or mobile
- Works well with mouse, tablet or touch screen
- Start Screen geared towards mobile devices
- Desktop Screen geared towards PC users
- Key commands speed things up
- Simple solid look - buh-bye Aero! - means faster running
- At first foreign, strange and scary (click desktop fast!)
- Hidden items on desktop (hot-spots) and key commands at first confusing
- Questionable items/apps on Start Screen
- Windows 7 Aero transparency look is gone (save for taskbar)
- Start Screen apps run independent of desktop apps (what there are of them)
So, bottom line - you can go to your desktop and ignore the start screen altogether. Or, you can use it. Me? I tend to ignore it really. I'm not into social networking, xbox, shopping, nor do I have a lot of stuff living in the cloud. You? You may or may not find a use for it depending on how you use your computer.
As far as speed, 8 has it all over 7. Installs are mind-bogglingly perfect. Heck, on install it recognized every single peripheral and card on my computer, and got itself hooked into the network with NO intervention on my part. I was all ready to enter all the IP addresses, passwords and install all the print drivers etc. I did no (ZERO) work. Except for connecting my VPN. Amazing. I was dual-booting to 7 as I was not completely sold on 8, until the second day. Now it boots straight to 8. It takes mere seconds.
There will be other things that are new to you, but easily ignored if you like. For instance, folders now have navigation and contextual menus show as menu items. A lot of folks had no idea about contextual menus, well here they are out in the open. You can use a single window as a way to navigate your computer. You'll see tabs and menu items and can organize however you like - or leave it default and use it the old way. As mentioned, the Windows Media Center is a separate program now. Currently as of this writing it's free - give them your logon email for a key to download. Their thinking is so many people either don't use it or buy a third party app - which sort of makes sense. I never used it, but got the free download just in case.
I'd recommend getting Windows 8 now while it's at such a great price. If you buy a new PC, don't be afraid. Installation on an existing PC & network was painless. I even just installed new hardware and it was far easier than Windows 7. This is the best windows yet, and I was skeptical.
Windows 8. It's exactly the same, only different! 5 stars.
- Arun P. Arangil "arunap" - Quite goodI got it paired with the pioneer SP-PK52FS. Its a step down from Denon X2000, but for what its worth its good. Nice low, mid and high range frequencies and the 4k upscaling is quite evident. The only drawback you have is that this dose not have the Audyssey XT (which is layman language means better sound calibration).
- Luis Hernandez - Must read..for perspectivewhichever side of the argument you stand on.... this is a Must Read... I'm not going to say that after reading this Im sold on one idea or another, but a little history rather than just traditional "dogma" helps with perspective... I think its both our right and our duty to make up our own mind. Aslan provides a counter argument long overdue for me...
