I would say horrible. Dry, boring, repetitive and stripped of anything that looked like a story. Yeah.... I stick with horrible.

History of Multitasking Leads to Simplicity on #GALAXYNote4

The GALAXY Note 4 comes with a seamless multitasking experience that allows users to open multiple windows and navigate them easily with a series of quick, intuitive gestures. But behind-the-scenes, creating a feature that works so seamlessly has been an ongoing lesson that started in 2011.

History of multitasking

Even before smartphones, people wanted to use their mobile phone like a small laptop that would allow them to do multiple things at the same time. They then wished they could open several smartphone windows to work on different tasks simultaneously and to freely copy and move any content from one place to another. They said this was the definition of multitasking.

As the GALAXY Note was released with a larger 5.3" display, and full screen utilization, the concept of multitasking started to become real. Soon the GALAXY Note 2 came out which allowed you to open two apps on one split screen, and to move content from one screen to another by dragging and dropping. The GALAXY Note series made multitasking possible on smartphones thanks to a fast processor, a large screen and intuitive features like the Multi window. 

The GALAXY Note 2 had the Multi window panel that contained all apps that could be opened in Multi window by pressing and holding the back key. This panel allowed users to open multiple apps side by side at any time, in any scenario. 

The GALAXY Note 3 was the first device that made it possible to move images and texts from one place to another using the drag and drop button. While looking at related content between two windows, there was a realization of a need to move content from one window to wherever else necessary. 

Multitasking made simple

While these multitasking features did overcome the limitations of a single screen, there was still a learning curve with all the different ways to open and navigate multiple windows at a time. To answer these issues, the GALAXY Note 4’s new Multi window features are combined into a series of intuitive gestures to keep user flow and context together. 

If you drag it to the edge of the screen, it will become pop-up screen. Multitasking on the GALAXY Note 4 is much simpler now that you don’t need to look for application trays or open Air Command to use more than one window.

Swiping down from the top left or right corners of an open app creates a pop-up screen that can be resized, moved around and minimized into an icon. Dragging the pop-up screen or the minimized icon back up or down creates a full screen or a split screen depending on how many applications you have open. These features are all interconnected, meaning that you can go smoothly from a full screen to a pop-up screen to a split screen just by moving the windows around on your GALAXY Note 4. The movements are intuitive and don’t need to be memorized separately.

The GALAXY Note 4 attempts to provide a solution to the needs of all consumers who want to multitask on their phone. You should try out the GALAXY Note 4’s new Multi window yourself in order to really appreciate the benefits of a seamless multitasking experience. Once Multi window helps you through a tough spot, it becomes second nature. Samsung Mobile’s multitasking features will continue to meet consumer needs and continue to provide an even more effortless and seamless experience.

EFF is fighting for common sense exemptions to the DMCA's ridiculous anti-circumvention provisions. We've filed six requests in the triennial review process.

Pretty sure this means I'm going to live forever.
 
I linked the melanoma coffee study a while ago, and now I'm linking this. 

The consumption of the study coffee (750ml!) substantially lowered the level of spontaneous DNA strand breaks in WBC.
