OSNews, Generic OSes "Whenever there is a conversation about the future of computing, is discussion inevitably turns to the notion of a 'File'. After all, most tablets and phones don't show the user anything that resembles a file, only Apps that contain their own content, tucked away inside their own opaque storage structure. This is wrong. Files are abstraction layers around content that are necessary for interoperability. Without the notion of a File or other similar shared content abstraction, the ability to use different applications with the same information grinds to a halt, which hampers innovation and user experience." Aside from the fact that a file manager for Android is just a click away, and aside from the fact that Android's share menu addresses many of these concerns, his point still stands: files are not an outdated, archaic concept. One of my biggest gripes with iOS is just how user-hostile the operating system it when it comes to getting stuff - whatever stuff - to and from the device.

Oh, right. Kids LOVE to go to school!


Er... yes... they do. I have 3 myself. All our friends that have children also have chidlren who like to go to school and want to learn. I guess your from the sattes... you sound stupid enough to be. Try living in a country where the teachers have an idea what Pedagogy is, then maybe hildren there will love school to. I guess in american schools having to walk through metal detectors, getting beaten up for not liking sport and shot at by social outsiders would put you off from going.


Only the complete morons like you do not realize that what they want or care for are actually files.


No they are actually binary data... the "file" you see is just metaphor used by the OS ;)


You really are a dim bulb.


People in glass houses....

Judging from your propensity to launch pathetic personal attacks, I'm guessing you are some kind of social retard.


LMAO.... look at your post... talk about a double bind... please educate yourself before you open your arsehole next time.


What? Why are you asking a question that contains its answer? Are you not even capable of having even one rational thought?


You obviously learnt about irony in the same school as Alanis Morissette. Are you not even capable of reading what people have said. There was no answer in my question, and if it was the answer then it wouldn't be a question. Thank the good old US of A for your great education. You have been to school right?

PS: That was a rhetorical question... I'm sure you know that I don't expect an answer ;)
