  • Re: Latest Edition of Books

    [quote user="toughski"]Again, I think it is the publisher that is not on the up and up.[/quote] It could be -- but there's no reason Logos couldn't mark older editions as being older editions, even if they continue to sell them. I just want to be informed before pushing the button to buy. I don't see why or how this is so hard, honestly. Russ

  • Re: Latest Edition of Books

    IMHO, Logos should strive to sell the latest edition, or sell nothing at all. This isn't a physical book store where you have "back copies," that must be sold off before you can move to the new edition, so I don't see any real reason to sell an older edition of anything as a new purchase. _If_ Logos is going to sell older editions, they should be labeled

  • Re: Latest Edition of Books

    And Logos has a responsibility -- to their customers -- to either mark or remove older editions. It is borderline unethical to pass off a 14 year old edition as current, IMHO. Again, a simple marking on the web site product page saying, "please note this is not the latest edition" would be a mark of honesty.

  • Latest Edition of Books

    I've been reading to study for a PhD entrance exam, and discovered something about Logos library that's really annoying -- many of the books I've been checking are not the latest edition. A specific instance is Craig's "A Reasonable Faith;" Logos has the 1994 edition, but the latest edition is some 14 years later, in 2008. Looking over the information

  • Re: Windows Phone 8 App

    Did Logos really check up on the iphone market penetration numbers when they first started development there? Or Android? Or even the original MAC/OS versions? No, they probably didn't... MAC was considered a dying platform -- MS rescued it by porting Office over. Logos continued to supporting the MAC through the entire fall in market share, etc. So

    I'm still looking for a way to change the typeface on the ipad app, and not just the size and color. I still don't see it being an available option in the latest version... I see a lot of other apps have this option -- can we please get it added to the logos app?

  • Re: OT: The Logos outage, in light of Microsoft's recent Azure outage

    The right solution would be for Logos to institute the option of downloading selected books on all installs, just like it's available on smaller devices. That would let the user decide what's really important, and what's not. :-) Russ

  • Re: OT: The Logos outage, in light of Microsoft's recent Azure outage

    I think this is the most solid point to take away from this. We're all far too dependent on "the cloud" today -- and people are pushing more and more in that direction, as fast as possible. In the long run, though, there will always be outages. Keeping multiple copies might be difficult, but it's also the only realistic option. BTW, from a data science

  • Re: Windows Store App (Bible!) Library org

    What I wonder is how much longer Logos will support "main windows." There almost appears to be a growing dislike of Windows and MS at Logos -- sort-of a counter-reaction to the deep love affair between Logos and MS in the early years. I have a _lot_ of money invested in Logos, I'm beginning to think that investment might have been a major mistake over

    My response -- for real -- is to use something like EverNote or OneNote instead. You'll end up with better organized notes that are more usable for a wider array of tasks into the future... :-) Russ

  • Re: Logos by Subscription?

    [quote user="Nathan"]The question was, what subscription services would we be interested in. Not what was cost efficient or easy for Logos. There ARE companies out there that are offering virtual desktops, Amazon is doing it now in the $25-60/mo. range if I remember right. Challenging yes, impossible, maybe but it seems a good fit for Logos in many

  • Re: Logos by Subscription?

    [quote user="Nathan"] I would be interested in a cloud based desktop subscription. The whole indexing issue just really really REALLY irritates me, very inefficient. Different base packages could be available. No more indexing, no more fancy hardware requirements, no more huge downloads. Available with the click of a tiny executable. Massive access

  • Re: Logos by Subscription?

    So -- IMHO, subscription can mean multiple things, and it all depends on what you mean when you use the term. For instance, I subscribe to Office rather than purchasing Office yearly -- the value is good, and the product solid. The key point is, though -- Office works when the MS servers are off line, or I don't have an internet connection. Software

    Two things -- - I'm not certain I agree with Logos favoring macs here... I know Logos has a mac bias (witness the entire Windows phone debacle), but -- enough already. Windows 8.1 isn't "terrible," time to leave the past in the past and evaluate what's going on today. BTW, I say the same to folks stuck on the iphone. :-) - I don't see why Safari would

  • Link to resource location in ref

    A long while back, I suggested Logos add a new type of citation style in the settings -- one that would copy a url to the logos resource and location when you paste into another document. I remember someone answered from Logos stating including a link to the resource was a currently planned feature -- but I've upgraded to 6, and the feature still isn

    Even that might be too many for such large files over a really low bandwidth with a long delay/jitter. Once you drop a TCP ack, the window will really close down (depending on the O/S) -- and even if they've implemented fast start, four sessions dropping even a single ack every now and again will slam the transfer speed. There are several things here
