So you have nothing from Apple then? No iPhone? No iPad?
This isn't a "workaround" as it doesn't bring you to the AU but back to v1507 or v1511.
@PaulQ_602w - That's what happens when you buy something from Acer.
Considering you currently can't use the "Hello" feature unless you have a premium webcam, I can imagine what these VR things will cost. Judging by the overpriced Surface, I'm guessing $300+.
Russia needs those Rubles badly it seems. Maybe after Trump's nomination gets wiped in November he will buy a permanent seat at the ISS - and then complain that some NASA officials are "corrupt" and the space vetting is "rigged" and ends up becoming [as we suspect] a Russian.
I hear the Internet speed sucks big time. Too much bandwidth being used sending system information to and from Earth. Either that or a lot of porn watching.
Avast is crap. Worked at a place and had Avast Pro. Couldn't even detect those fake "Anti-Virus XP" junk around 2008-2009.
Did you read the article? It wasn't the developers' faulty but the crappy web site that hosted the programs.
Ya. Saw the tiny file for Audacity. Decided to get it directly from Audacity's web site.
Kindergarten to grade 12.
Novell did the same thing with NetWare when it was actually thriving.
So you expect K-12 schools [who probably don't have the money] to use Linux? Look at that miserable failure in Germany with the Windows to Linux partial migration. Not everyone moved to Linux and those who did used one of 5+ version of some unknown Linux distro.
Pay very little or nothing for Office for Windows or Mac?
Errr. Take courses at a college or university [and verify if a student, you met the requirements].
If you know how to do some research then you know how to fix this.
[And unsure about education versions but telemetry is disable [most if not all] from the Enterprise edition.]
"They was firing me." Yup. That's Texas!
Unsure why the author thinks Microsoft buying LinkedIn is strange. I guess he doesn't know that Microsoft has software related to "resource management".
Blackberry is trying to reinvent itself. It should of done so 2-3 years ago before they went into this rut.
No Mr. Robot?
Both H&CF and SV had to include above average looking females in the show [but only one of two are technical] to appeal to the geek community.
But why did the author start at season 1?
The US pricing for "Home" is $120. And $140 in Canada.
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.
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....
Interesting. I have the S4 as well. Same original battery. Not a heavy user but can still get 2+ days out of my usage.
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.
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]?
I think updates can be deferred.
Telemetry can for the most part be disabled.
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.
Bad batch or something.
I have twin 1.5TB in my desktop. Now 26 months old. No issues
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.
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....
