Win 3.1 obsolete!? Hardly! We still support a couple of Win 3.1 installations for an accounting firm that is quite happy with Win 3.1.

Re: 2 Things
It's not the developed countries we have to worry about. There are still a lot of countries on this fine planet where large families are the norm!
"Then, perhaps sometime in the middle of the 22nd century, we may be prepared for the great leap across interstellar space and reap the scientific and cultural rewards that will result."
Assuming of course that we don't annihilate ourselves in the meantime...
We still maintain accounting software for a client running everything in his accounting department under Win 3.1. It works!
I've been an IT manager. You ask "Where are the women in IT"?
First, there aren't that many women with IT education and/or experience to begin with.
Second, people in IT are usually fairly young. And young women quite often want a family and leave on pregnancy leaves.
Third, IT is a fast moving profession. Women out on a year's pregnancy leave have to be re-educated upon return... An expense firms don't want, though they won't admit it.
Fourth, even if there were more women with an IT experience, I doubt they would remain in IT jobs.
Oh wow! Just think of all the uneducated Americans this would put to work at maybe $1/hour... Oh, wait, isn't there something about a minimum wage in the USA!? And what about all the unemployed union members that might want $50-75/hour to do this!?
Oh well, let's just let the Chinese, etc. do it!
Dump Win 8++
I think their tablet would sell very well if they got rid of Win 8++, which is a piece of garbage!
Wow, No One in the Whole UK Capable of Coding!!
Looks like the UK has a problem? No one in the whole country capable of coding let alone teaching anyone else to code! Wow, didn't know my mother country was so totally medieval!?
Not unusual for T Mobile!
Over the years I've had this problem several times. Each time support can't figure out what could possibly have happened!?
I totally agree. The site puts all the adverts in prominent buttons AND the actual download is barely visible and quite often impossible to find. I've totally given up on downloads from the site...
If you're going to be ashamed of a picture taken in public, cover up! Simple as that. If you wish to go commando, expect the worst... maybe a picture on the web of your exposed parts!?
Maybe Microsoft could listen to users...
A disservice to all good females on the planet!!
The Who are way, way better than "that other band"!!
Re: Works for me
I'm sure Moose(s) would agree...
So, if you're acting within the law, who gives a dam! If you're acting outside the law, I hope you get caught!
We did at one time...
" And they do it because we can’t." is really sad! Where did western innovation go? Once upon a time the west almost had it all...
Democracy is close to dead in the USA... Maybe not, but the ongoing Republican/Democrat war is making government by the people look awful bad!!
Same 'ol, same 'ol...
I started my IT career when the IBM's of the world were offering up data centers for service, i.e.: companies just didn't have internal computing capability. Their centers provided service; sometimes good, sometimes terrible. I cannot count how many times we lost information for various, unaccountable (acts of God), reasons.
We made the decision to bring computing services in-house as soon as we could justify the cost. That reasoning still holds true 40+ years later. If you want security, control and access to YOUR data, do it yourself and do it well. The computer services of today are no better, and may even be worse, than those provided by data centers of the 1970's+. And the excuses for poor service, security breaches, unaccountable loses are still "Acts of God"...
Listen up pirates... sounds like an opportunity to expand your businesses!
All except for the slavery bit...
Doing nicely with Office 2003, thank you!
I cannot for any reason imagine why I would want to upgrade to the latest version of Office!? Office 2003 does a great job!
Wow! I'll just stick with Windows...
After reading this article, 90% of which I didn't understand, I'll just stick with Windows!
Why is it that Linux people have to use abbreviations for everything? What the heck is a "distro"? Ubunto... sounds like something out of Africa!? Fedora is some sort of hat, no?
No thanks... but an interesting read...
Just good business...
Tax evasion is a crime... tax avoidance is good business. As a shareholder, I hope they keep their tax managers busy finding new loopholes in various country's tax laws!
Yes or No
"the biggest military computer hack(er) of all time" OR "a bumbling nerd who was hunting for evidence of UFOs, anti-gravity propulsion systems and supposedly-suppressed extraterrestial technology"
Now that is a range of opinion!!/
The $$$ Cost is Phenomenal!
I don't think any government at the moment wishes to expend the billions of $$$'s required to convert units. Just take a look at Canada. Billions of $$$'s later for signage, training programs, printed materials, law suites, seminars, conferences, international meetings, etc., ad nauseum over the past 20 years and we're still only part way to converted. Carpenters still refer to wall studs as 2x4's, even though they are actually 1-1/2"x3-1/2" in size. Sheets of plywood are 4'x8'. Radios still announce temperature in both units. Thermostats are still set to degrees F. Fields are still acres (and sometimes hectares). Pipelines are inches, although their length is in km (or meters). The spelling of metric units can be metres or meters depending upon whether you side with Anglo/Franco phones on this issue. Ocean depths are meters, fathoms, feet or miles. Young people who have never used Imperial units cannot even converse with oldsters who don't normally have a "feel" for metric units.
It is a frigging mess!
Motorists aren't stupid...
Motorists will change to electric vehicles when there is value! At present they are overpriced, battery replacements are a fortune, the miles per charge is far too low, charge times are ridiculous, etc.
Fix the problems and motorists will adopt an electric future!
In a US court...
There will be appeals to the end of time on this verdict... not the least of which will be the question of whether a US jury can be nonprejudiced in its verdict!?
And how many were created by FaceBook prior to the IPO?
I'm just wondering...
Tried this once...
A couple of my university buddies and I tried this once. It rose to the phenomenal height of about 100 feet before a gust of wind blew the whole experiment into the side of a building.
The beer was good though...
Congrats to my fellow Canucks!!
How about the fellow that plays the awesome MS guy in the Apple commercials?
Courtesy to a tee...
I can honestly believe a S. Korean company would do this out of sensitivity. I'm sure no US company would have this degree of forethought!
Finally, maybe a useful tablet!?
I've looked at tablets. I've kicked the tires and keep coming back to my Windows laptop. Maybe, just maybe, Windows 8 on something similar to this will convince me a tablet is more than just a glorified toy!?
Not as fast as you think...
I currently use satellite (Hughes, Xplornet) in Canada and their service is not better than BT! I've never attained anywhere near their advertised (and paid for) upload or download rates... AND they're twice as expense as fast cable in the city.
The same applies in the colonies (Canada)
Xplornet satellite in Canada, at least Alberta, is not much better. They have never attained their advertised rate and they charge a fortune for their "preferred" service. Downloads are not bad; however, just try uploading anything greater than a 5MB file and feel the hurt... almost impossible to maintain a connection that long!!
Finally, sanity in the marketplace!
It is about time computer manufacturers realized Windows or Mac are the operating systems of choice and stop wasting money installing the Linux flavor of the month! Bravo for HP!!
No to Seagate years ago!
I blacklisted Seagate about two years ago after hardware (and warranty) problems with a couple of high end drives. Using WD now in all our servers and desktops with good success; not 100% reliability but 95% over three years is not bad!
Nigeria, you say
A totally unnecessary waste of legal effort and $$$'s. Let the kids have the PC's and get on w/ life
Safari has problems on iMAC as well
Problems with Safari on Windows should come as no surprise. I've given up using it on its platform of origin. The problems I've heard described on Windows are also present when it is run on the iMAC... Particularly annoying is its habit of crashing the moment you attempt to type text into a form text box!!
Poor AMD :<)
Poor AMD... whining again about competition in the IT world. Get over it guys (and gals), and beat Intel with superior products!
I can't say I'm sorry about Intel's (terrible) loss of e-mails. It's their information, they can do as they please with it.
