"Unknown Installer Error"
1.0 (Dec 9, 2011)
Somebody ruined a fantastic application with this awful update (downgrade?). I can't even get it to work. Stick with version 0.38 for as long as you can before installing this POS.
I loved the previous versions of TweetDeck and used it every single day. This version (1.0) has me using the web site again. However, I'll shortly be reinstalling the wonderful version 0.38 of TweetDeck. It actually works.

Now no choice but to also install an useless toobar. It was fun while it lasted, Foxit Reader, but I'm off to find software which doesn't force me to install a toolbar--or at least offers me the option of paying to avoid it. Now, where's another PDF reader?
Edit: MajorGeeks and no toolbar? Wrong! Tried it. Same thing there. Foxit Reader is dead.

Crapware. I just uninstalled it from two systems having problems because of it. Both systems are running smoothly and not crashing anymore now.

The new installer remains very problematic. At the moment, on one screen of the nVIDIA system information it properly recognizes my 1440x900 native resolution--but recommends another. However, on another options screen it then sees the previously "recommended" resolution as the native resolution. Completely opposing information on the two screens.
Also, after a restart my system reverts to god knows what resolution and I must go in and manually set it to (what *I* know as) native. Upgrading these drivers was once merely a routine task, but it's now verging on nightmare status. Two steps forward and one backward with this and the previous version.
Last, it simply hates Prince of Persia and using any of the x-antialiasings (with only that program) breaks the entire custom program settings control panel and you must reinstall the drivers to fix the problem. All of these problems, remaining from before and manifesting only since the new installer, means a downgrade from two stars to only one star.

Your "controversial" link (http://www.betanews.com/article//) does not link to any article.

Having an ICQ UIN in the low six-digits, I often find myself longing for the good ol' days.

It seems to me everybody wins here. (Except the police, that is. Their reported tactics appear far more heavy-handed than needed for a freaking telephone. Breaking down doors are for crack cocaine and methamphetamine busts and violent criminals. Did they think the computer hardware would be flushed down the toilet or they'd be met with AR-15s?) Both sides get great publicity. After all, there's no such thing as bad publicity and especially for a blogger who will now garner countless more readers and Apple which just adores having something (anything?) written about it.

Marketing is 90% psychology. In fact, for my doctorate I took approx. 50% statistics classes, 40% psychology classes, and only 10% true "marketing" classes.
Marketing is extremely multi-disciplinary. It is comprised of psychology, statistics, social psychology, economics, consumer behavior (90% psychology itself), sociology and a couple other disciplines. That is why it is one of the more difficult terminal degrees to get.
And should you doubt my word about from where the concept originally came (i.e., not psychology but marketing instead), first do your research and then pen your response. You'll look far less clueless than that janitor to which you refer.
And, I am proud of it. Thus my response to make certain proper credit is given for work Microsoft seems to wish it should now take full credit.
(And btw Microsoft, you still owe me a copy of Office promised me by one of your sales reps in exchange for help I gave her at that time.)

We were the first to use the term "delight" in reference to a point beyond mere "satisfaction."
And were it so obvious, there would not have been an entire book about it published--and now finally read by someone at Microsoft.
Edit: To be clearer, when using a Likert scale (e.g., a 7-point scale) to measure degrees of customer satisfaction, "delighted" was never before a point on the scale. Previously, the scale's highest measure of satisfaction was typically "extremely satisfied." Research revealed there is a point in consumers' minds beyond "extremely satisfied," that it was in fact quite different from "extremely satisfied," and the term "delighted" was used to define and measure that point.
(And no, I do not expect you to understand this. But at least you have been informed.)
