    Since the value of the Dollar has risen significantly in the recent months, the prices in most other currencies should go down by quite a bit.

    I'm sure you can do all those things, I just don't know why. There are lots of other things you can do. People are talking about connecting their fridges to the internet. But I don't need any of that. All I'm saying, I should not be forced to do what I don't want, regardless of what you can or like to do.
    The problem is that you're going to be in the minority. Microsoft or Apple or Google are not going to create a single-purpose Desktop OS (and maintain that) and then create a different Multi-device OS (that includes desktop functionality) just so you can "not be forced to what you don't want".

    It make sense to design one OS to handle all devices. Apple is going that route (though slowly), Google is going that route, and Microsoft is going that route. It's too costly to maintain two OS's that do the same thing. And, on top of that, you will be able to use the same apps on all devices.

    Why shouldn't I be able to work with documents someone sends me in my phone? Why shouldn't I be able to use Instagram on a Desktop?

    I just downloaded a free ebook on SQL (whatever that is?) I have several hundred more that I D\L the same way.
    I don't know much about SQL either, Roger, but I do know enough to say I'm not a bit interested in that one. Access will serve me fine.

    But, there's trick to it!
    You need a way to read the ebooks, which are Kindle ebooks, from Amazon.
    If interested, you need an eReader and I have Kindle for PC, free from Amazon and you'll also need an Amazon account, also free.
    If you poke around Amazon you'll find a lot of free books but I have a source, a free newsletter, that allows you to be a little more selective. After a little experience with the newsletters, I've narrowed it down to just subscribing to the How-To list which is published daily. Kindle, Evernote, SQL, and Crock-Pot dump cake are just some of the subjects
    Free Kindle How To Books<kindle@freebookssearch.com>; should get you there and other choices are available.
    Erotica seems to be a popular genre but I don't recommend it for little girls
    Take a look!
    I used to have a Kindle, but gave it to my daughter when I got my HP Slate 10 HD tablet. I also have Kindle on the Slate and on my desktop and laptop computers. That way, wherever I am, I can read what I download from Amazon.com.

    I do love a free book, but there are some that are well worth the price of a Kindle copy, and I own several. There are several other eReaders, such as Nook. I've forgotten the names of others because I don't need them.

    If you're interested in office suites that are compatible with Microsoft Office, Kingsoft Office is available here: http://www.kingsoftstore.com/download-office/index Open Office is out there somewhere also, but I found it too hard to understand, although it's also compatible with Microsoft Office.

    That is backwards - a rising dollar makes imports to the US cheaper and exports from the US more expensive in the importing country. .

    Today the EUR/USD rate is 1.08, last year it was 1.38. Therefore (adjusting for exchange rate) an USD $5 app would have been 3.62 € last year and 4.63 € today.

    My high school had an HP2000E when I got there my freshman year.. I took a class in business computing in my junior year and that's where I got to use punch cards and a bit of programming. My dad taught at that school so he got me a book on programming and I studied over the summer and I took off with it in my senior year.
