Probably all who voted for Brexit were smart enough to place their tech orders prior to the vote. :-)
Lenovo, HP, ASUS and others will follow [maybe quietly] with increases as well.
Just like anything else, once it goes up, it won't come back down.
Watch there will be huge backlash when the end comes and those unhappy will switch over to Windows. :-)
Oh Trump will continue to whine like a baby about this just like he did years after it was proven that Obama was born in the US.
Trump will continuing his whining even after he loses badly in November.
Hey. The FBI director is a Republican and even he couldn't agree that what she did was so bad.
Even those who sent mail should of noticed that she wasn't using a government approved server [no .gov is a hint].
Why should Israel's tech companies teach Palestinians cybertech. They may end up just biting the country in the foot.
Oh. Also seen Amazon give a discount of a few cents on an item that goes for $100+ quite a few times.
Dell Canada, twice in 3 weeks, have goofed on pricing. First it was an Inspiron laptop for roughly $1,000,600 [CDN] and then a week or so later a desktop for a similar price!
Oh. People don't read - they prefer to complain.
That said, the "fix" wasn't on the web site immediately.
USA. Land of the lawsuits.
Probably get sued for $100,000 just for walking on your neighbours grass.
Duh. Both are Yanks!
Drivers are a Samsung issue. They need to get a hold of whomever they get their parts from and figure out why it isn't working.
If goes past July 29th, Samsung should pay for the upgrades for a period of time.
The days of OS X [and even Linux] being secured is now long gone....
The only secure OS now is DOS - nothing made for it.
Jeez. If somehow Trump becomes president, the rest of the world will be looking to move to another world....
Fiorina is a loser anyways.
Under Jobs, the company innovated. Under Cook, they copy. Why haven't shareholders booted him out?
It's bad that sales have dropped. The iPhone 6se [?] isn't selling. The latest iPad isn't selling. The iPad Minis took away sales that could of had people buy the higher revenue iPads [regular sizes].
Too many security issues of late.
El Capitan started as a dud with major upgrading issues. Took 2 further updates to correct [most?] the issues.
Maybe Ted should of used a Blackberry instead of a hackable insecure iPhone.
Oh not surprised with Acer. Their systems are junk and their support is crappy. If they can make a quick buck out of selling something like Chromebricks, they will.
Wow. A Republican that knows [we think] what a DNS is!
Seems to me that there is non stop blunders by Lenovo. Have any of their stuff? Remove all but drivers. Even better, re-install the OS.
Re: I'll never buy another Sammy
Had no problems with my S4. Battery went almost 3 years [and still going] until I got the S7. Probably lacked RAM as soon as 5.0.1 was on it.
Bought mine almost a week ago.
Like the fact that you can change the nano SIM card and microSD card without having to open the case.
If you want a screen protector note that the edge of the screen on the S7 [not Edge] has a slight curve. So some screen protectors won't cover it. iShieldZ is one of them.
I would love to see the equivalent of 35pounds for a month in Canada. The decent rate in Canada is $70 with maybe 3GB of data.
This only happened as Canadian carriers ditched 3 year plans and went to 2. When this happened, new purchasers are paying more up front and more per month.
When I purchased my S4 on a 3 year plan, I paid $200 for the phone and $60 for the monthly plan.
Now for the S7, the current price is $400 and the minimum plan is $70.
A friend has the S6 and happy with it [he had the S3 before]. So I suspect I'll be happy with the S7....
Re: no removable battery
Interesting. I have the S4 as well. Same original battery. Not a heavy user but can still get 2+ days out of my usage.
Re: Just Say No
Why bother with an app? Three registry keys and no upgrade on my system until I want to do it.
Gibson is known to be [at one point] a bit of a crackpot.
Re: any word about when the "free" upgrade is going away
Wonder as well. The original plan said the next big update would be in May or June - in time for those who didn't upgrade to W10 to do so with the new release.
But if this is an "anniversary edition", wouldn't it fall on the anniversary of the W10 release [one day before W10 upgrade isn't free]?
Re: Give'em credit
I think updates can be deferred.
Telemetry can for the most part be disabled.
Re: Give'em credit
There are plenty of tools that can do that [or most of it].
Try The Next Bug Thing or Spybot's Beacon.
A drop in hard disk sales year over year but I think part because of SSD purchases.
Re: Not a chance
Bad batch or something.
I have twin 1.5TB in my desktop. Now 26 months old. No issues
Re: SSDs in cheap laptops
Less needs according to whom? I know people who can fill up 2+ TB on a desktop with movies and music. Should be the same on a laptop and no need for an external drive.
Re: 2013 / 2016 / 365 for small businesses
If I'm not mistaken, the portal version gets continuously updated.
If you have a share, after installing [and depending on how old] you may need to download a few hundred MB or more to update after. Early on, there was 1.2GB to download of Office 2013 updates for just a month.
Easier said than done.
I was expecting at least half the issues to involve Java.
I guess Google forgot to screen this one....
If a company or government is stuck at a certain OS or IE level, then it is incompetence at their time. This especially true with the OS part as Microsoft standardizes on 10 years support [plus a bit of extra time but not much].
So if you have software that was specifically built for Win7 and you haven't started to prepare for Win7's demise in 4+ years then you are incompetent.
You wonder what needs to be done to actually have this work. Many of these "flaws" require the person to have certain access that most don't have.
Max forgot that while Zuckerberg's fortunate is currently at $45 billion, assuming she won't have any siblings, she may not inherit not much more that $450 million after per parent kick the [money] bucket as her old man plans to give away almost all to charity.
More R&D wasted from a company that can barely afford it.
Why I always say, if you get a Chromebrick, format and install a real Linux distro.
Bad year for Target. $40 million on this. They spent $100+ million starting in 2013 in Canada to open 125 stores only to close them earlier this year - losing probably $100+ million.
Pure incompetence. I guess the board and senior management will get huge Xmas bonuses!
Should change his name to arrogant.com so he can hide himself. Maybe claim it wasn't him but this kim.com guy.
Read elsewhere that it was pulled because Bitlocker wouldn't start up on a fresh install.
Any way to know the difference in version if looking at the install files? Dating?
Unisys is still around. I though they went belly under years ago.
Registrars and hosting sites should immediately ban whomever registered or requested server space. The registrars and hosting sites should also notify others.
That said, shouldn't GoDaddy notice something was suspicious just with the domain name? It's like registering the web site Microssoft.com
This coming from a traitor and a liar.
Waters is living in the past. He hasn't had a decent solo career and lives off his Pink Floyd music
People buy Chromebricks?
One wonder why you have to pay to get your account removed. Facebook doesn't do it. Neither for Hotmail or Gmail. Wouldn't be surprised if Apple charged though.
That said there are many fake accounts or where contact information which aren't valid. [And of course is valid for the dummies who were dumb enough to give real information.]
They're releasing versions too fast. Wasn't even 10 months ago when Workstation 11 was released.
Communism is officially back.
soon they will be like Checkov in Star Trek - rewriting history. Oh basketball was created by a Russian in St. Petersburg [not Florida] and baseball was created by a Russian in Leningrad.
