      The Microsoft Surface

      HOLY CRAP that looks awesome as hell (watch the video the really get an idea of what it does)... I for one LOVE the idea of even a basic touch screen and fell love with HP's touch screen media center type PCs when I used one at Best Buy... This however takes it to a whole new level.

      For those of you to lazy to click the link: It is a computer embedded in a tabletop like surface with a multi-touch display (one that can detect touch at more than one point on it's surface at a time)... It also features some nifty wireless functionality and runs Windows Vista.

      EDIT: Oh yeah... Keep an eye on the "all things digital" conference coverage today for possible more info and a deathmatch I mean showdown I mean panel discussion between Gates and Jobs.

      Also: Mods to anyone that manages to find any more detailed info on this thing...

      I had a long asses entry typed but I managed to lose it... Which as you will see is in keeping with the rest of my week so far.... Seeing as I am likely to wind up dead this time I will keep it brief(er than it was):

      First: Spent my whole Moday without doing a damm thing (I was off work)... Playing Halo 2 and later Halo 3 It was the best weekend day EVER... LOL... Thanks to lilshorty64 for the great time... Not like that you damm pervs.

      Second: You wouldn't think there would be much to write about my week so far and you would be right... It SUCKS... Allow me to elaborate:

      Get up after 2.5 hours of sleep, feel like shit... Drive (with michael) to work... Still feeling like shit.
      Hit curb on the way into the driveway, flaten tire.
      As we are going I comment "not the best start to the week ever" and no sooner have I said it then my laptop clatters out of my bag onto the driveway... I get into the entryway and enter my code wrong 3 times and then smash my hand into the keypad.

      Now I am sitting at work fighting off sleep (already and I have like 8 hours or some shit to go), the car is outside with a flat, my laptop has several new scratches and my hand hurts.

      I have a feeling this abrieviated week is going to seem like one of the longest ever.

      FUCK.

      Sorry for another journal so fast but I am just doing my part complaining so maybe if enough people od they will FIX the problem:

      1. I love Microsoft and and my love for my xbox is even greater but they NEED to do something about there tech support... I got so pissed I wanted to kill someone trying to talk to them.
      1. I am not one of those people who complain about foreign tech support people. I realize that its all about cutting costs and if they hired only people who's english was perfect they would have to charge more for the product or have longer hold times. I also realize that tech support jobs are important to economies in places likes India... This said I really appriciate if the person I am talking to knows at least A LITTLE enlish... And if I DO get someone who knows some that they are not a complete and utter ASSHOLE in every aspect of their demeanor... Which brings me nicly to my next point:

      2. I could tell the hardware tech support guy I just talked to was an asshole the moment he pickedup the phone... Just the guys voice was dripping with sarcasm and distain but I was hopeful he was justified in his arrogance because he was a great tech however after being interrogated: Name, address, console serial number, what kind of phone I am using (WTF?!) and if I was recording the call (Double wtf... He seemed sure I was and told me sternly that this was "not allowed") I realiezed this was not the case... This brings me to my third point:

      3. The people should know what an xbox IS before they let them handle the customers... They guy took forever to do anything and awkwardly parroted irrelevent knowledge base articles word for word... He wound up telling me my media center could not connect because the libary was not set up properly (WTF?!) after I told him my routers firewall WAS in fact disabled... The following is a transript of that little exchange:
      Him: (after ensuring that the firewall on my computer was disabled despite the fact that it is VISTA and windows makes the changes to the firewall itself) So... Are you using a router? (WHAT THE FUCK ELSE WOULD I BE DOING IF I HAVE A HOME NETWORK?!)
      Me: Yes... It a linksys...
      HIM: (Inturrupting) Have you turned off the firewall in the router?(how does he know my router even has one since he didn't let me tell him which model I had)
      ME: Yes.. I turned it off a few days ago because I needed to..
      HIM: (Interrupting again) You CALLED THEM?
      ME: Um... yes (I didn't but I didn't feel like explaining that I KNEW how to use my routers config screen)
      HIM: ARE YOU SURE?! (yes he was shouting)
      ME: Um.. Yes I..
      HIM: (interupting AGAIN) That is the problem the majotiry of the time... So.. YOU CALLED THEM?
      ME: YES!

      At this point I was getting pissed... He had already asked if I was recordign the call and what sort of PHONE I was using in a none to fiendly way... By the time he got around to giving me the one irrelevent piece of data he gave me I was thinking calming thoughts about using nuclear weapons against India.

      So in conclusion: Next time you want to be treated like a pretty criminal by a blathering idiot who doens't even speak your language call xbox tech support and they will help you with THAT.. But if you have a technical problem you are pretty much SOL.

      And people wonder why I don't like people?

      ...Or something.

      Anyway.. I promised Kate and Gabriel (sisters.. 21 and 9 respecitvely) that I would come to their house at 12 to take them swimming in the river at the nearby Daniel Boone national forest... I managed to get there only 1 hour and 35 minute late and we headed out for some swimming.. That was awesome... The water was ALMOST pleasent tempature but the funny part was the fact that my transmission randomly broke and the gears started doing funny stuff:
      Park: Car stalls
      Reverse: Car tries to go forward and backward at the same time... Very strange
      N: Car goes forward just like in drive
      D: works FINE!
      I never realized how fucking much you use reverse in a car! Especially offroading!
      Damm.. So I managed to turn around and tried everything to get it working again.. Then since I figured it could not get to much worse than it already was I put it in nutral and got up to about 20 mph (remember it works like its in drive) and then threw it in reverse.. There was a loud THUD and the wheels locked up and then it worked fine!
      My car fixing skillz>all else!

      Also apparently i am one anti-social mother fucker... I was ASKED to go to this contra dance thing in Berea (by my sister... No I did NOT turn down a date with a hawk chick.. thoug there are probably some there.. LOL) but instead I am staying home and partying.. BY MYSELF!

      Anyway.. I am gonna hit the shower then it is time for music and rum!

    • Google>Microsoft?

      12 years ago

      ____

      No... I have not switched to the light side but in one isolated instance Google did pwn Miscrosoft:

      I use Iive search because its generally much better at finding some of the stuff I look for (this ironically may stem from the fact that it seems to be a slightly bigger sucker for shady practices like link farms and stuff as I am often looking up data sheets for obscure electronics parts and in many cases these data sheet sites resort to some shady tactics in order to increase their ranking) and more popular stuff is going to be found by either with pretty much equal effectivness... So last night I was trying to find an article about the retirement of the Concord jet from 2003 I remembered a few phrases and keywords from the artical... So I entered these in my Live search toolbar and got "no results found" I was not really suprised as it was an old article and I figured it might not be around anymore. BUT I really wanted to see it so I figured I would give Google a try... I go to Google's homepage (not having a google bar... LOL) and enter the same stuff... Voilà! 1 result found...
      So why is this worth mentioning?
      Well... The article in question was posted on MSNBC.com... AKA Microsoft... Google was better at finding something on a Microsoft server than MIcrosoft was... Oh the irony!

      Anyway... I will continue to use live as it has never let me down before and tends to work better for my particular needs but I thought that was kinda funny..
