Laporan yang mencengangkan dari IDC – Microsoft yang nyaris 100% menguasai pasar komputer (#), di tahun 2004 drop pangsa pasarnya sampai nyaris 50% karena Apple dkk, dan lalu sekarang drop lagi sekitar 60% karena Android. 

Pangsa pasar Microsoft kini tinggal 20%, sedangkan Apple 24%, dan pasar komputer kini dikuasai oleh Android sebesar 42%.

Sejak awal munculnya Android, saya sudah yakin bahwa ini yang akan menjadi raja, karena menilik pelajaran dari IBM PC di era 80-an— keterbukaannya / openness dari IBM PC membuatnya sukses menggusur nyaris semua kompetitornya 🙂

Dan, kini kembali sejarah terulang kembali 🙂

Microsoft harus segera berubah menyesuaikan diri dengan situasi ini, atau musti siap-siap tergusur menjadi semakin tidak relevan di dunia yang baru ini.

New breakthrough on Warp Drive technology, suddenly become much more feasible : http://www.space.com/17628-warp-drive-possible-interstellar-spaceflight.html

Quoted :

"Everything within space is restricted by the speed of light," explained Richard Obousy, president of Icarus Interstellar, a non-profit group of scientists and engineers devoted to pursuing interstellar spaceflight. "But the really cool thing is space-time, the fabric of space, is not limited by the speed of light."

With this concept, the spacecraft would be able to achieve an effective speed of about 10 times the speed of light, all without breaking the cosmic speed limit.

Meanwhile, the starship itself would stay inside a bubble of flat space-time that wasn't being warped at all.

White and his colleagues have begun experimenting with a mini version of the warp drive in their laboratory.

They set up what they call the White-Juday Warp Field Interferometer at the Johnson Space Center, essentially creating a laser interferometer that instigates micro versions of space-time warps.

Engage ! 😀

Warp Drive May Be More Feasible Than Thought, Scientists Say
New calculations suggest we might actually be able to build a warp drive for faster than light travel.

Quoted :

WE DO NOT BREAK USERSPACE!

Mauro, SHUT THE FUCK UP!

If a change results in user programs breaking, it's a bug in the kernel. We never EVER blame the user programs. How hard can this be to understand?

Always a pleasure to see a user-focused programmer. Yet from time to time, we'll still find developers who forgot that we develop software for users, not for developers.

MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Games) are a waste of time, because they will fail : 
http://www.theverge.com/2012/12/20/3776210/electric-funeral-death-of-mmo

My daughter was shocked when she found out that http://TinierMe.com went down. She was shocked again when she found out that AmebaPico (https://www.facebook.com/PicoIndonesiaFanpage) also closed down this 17 Dec 2012. 
Now she plays http://Minecraft.net in LAN, with her brother & sisters instead 🙂

Not everyone is able to take it so easily. Some have built elaborate new worlds in these games; and was hit with quite a powerful emotional shock when these worlds disappeared. It was totally unexpected, they probably thought that it would last forever. Not a chance.

It was good while it lasted though – my daughter got new friends, and also able to practice her English on these MMOGs. Some friends of mine even met their SO (significant other) on these MMOGs & some got married. So that wasn't too bad.

Barusan dikontak oleh Mbak +Hindraswari Enggar , istri Mas +Kuncoro Wastuwibowo . Menanyakan soal travel untuk Haji.

Saya jelaskan bahwa saya sangat merekomendasikan Arnussa bagi mereka yang ingin bisa melakukan ibadah haji / umroh dengan benar.

Saya katakan demikian, karena saya saksikan sendiri di Tanah Suci, berbagai travel, bahkan yang sangat mahal, ternyata malah banyak melanggar syariat dengan cukup telak.

Beberapa contoh :

(#) Melakukan Thawaf dengan sadis : berbagai Ustadz travel lainnya memimpin jamaahnya, dibuat menjadi barisan panjang, DAN lalu melabrak orang-orang di depannya.

Hasilnya ? Thawaf mereka jadi cepat dan lancar – tapi, dengan membahayakan semua orang yang mereka labrak itu.

Ini bukan main-main; yang pernah naik haji tentu tahu bagaimana padatnya arena thawaf di saat tersebut. Jika kita sampai jatuh, wassalam….ikhlaskan saja badan babak belur dan tulang patah-patah; atau, malah nyawa jadi melayang.

() *Memfatwakan bahwa sholat itu cukup di hotel, tidak perlu ke Masjidil Haram

Hasilnya ? Jamaah jadi sholat dengan nyaman, tidak bersesakan di Masjidil Haram — tapi, jadi kelewatan dari fadhilah sholat di Masjidil Haram, dan tentu saja, pengalaman membaur dengan jamaah muslim dari seluruh dunia.

Beberapa pengalaman haji paling berkesan adalah ketika di Masjidil Haram. Seperti bertemu dengan jamaah haji dari Maroko yang sangat ramah. Tidak bisa b.Arab ataupun Inggris bukan masalah, silaturahmi ternyata bisa tetap tersambung dengan bahasa Tarzan 😀

(#) Melewatkan Mabit di Muzdalifah : Hasilnya ? Jamaah jadi tidak terkena macet luar biasa di lokasi tsb, dan bisa beristirahat di kendaraan lebih lama (tidak terganggu ritual mabit di Muzdalifah)

Tapi tentu saja sunnah Nabi ini jadi terlewatkan oleh kita….

(#) Keluar dari Padang Arafah lebih cepat : karena tidak mau terjebak macet – tapi, jadi melanggar syariat.

Dst, dst…. masih ada banyak lagi berbagai tingkah polah para "pembimbing" haji ini.

Dengan travel Arnussa, kita akan terhindar dari berbagai hal-hal yang aneh ini. Keluarga kami telah memanfaatkan jasa mereka sejak tahun 90-an untuk ibadah haji & umroh kami. Very recommended.

Dan tenang saja, ini bukan posting berbayar 🙂 hanya testimoni dari customer yang puas, itu saja 😉

Semoga bermanfaat.
