What a waste of maybe hundreds of millions. Sounds like something Google would do.

Maybe Lenovo should fix things in their own house before they spread their useless tentacles elsewhere.
So they basically did a Symantec [with what became of Veritas].
Generally an Os drops if on the way out [older MacOS, Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x] but for a new OS to drop, something doesn't make sense.
No way you can have say 2 million people downgrade [before they can't] at the same time of all the new W10 purchases.
Lenovo should fix their own systems before adding more problems.
Lenovo specific vulnerabilities.
Malware used in some kit included in the install bloatware.
You can even add 26 years ago when Lenovo Canada offered 70% off laptops [should of been 30%] and then didn't honor the 70% off.
Quality control at Apple died when Jobs went to the big Mac in the sky...
If India gets to expensive they'll outsource to the Martians but the Martians will have to pay for the shipping.
I've seen one site uses beige keyboards from the 90s [or before] as their picture. Might as well throw some 8" floppies while at it.
Win XP embedded support died in January. Many equate it with the consumer edition.
So HPE sold less but had more revenue? Over-priced cheaply made servers with less support?
So an outage for 17 hours according to the dashboard. Good service! Not.
Considering how Cruz started to campaign for the GOP leadership during the GOP convention a few months back [i.e. doesn't expect Trump to win], how can he say "...we will conduct a thorough review..."? A new government will be in place but don't expect it to be a GOP government led by Crooked Drumpf. If Drumpf isn't the President, Cruz may not lead any committee.
Don't have to do too much "research" to know it will go up higher than 2015.... Hopefully they didn't spend millions on their "research".
Probably found a new bug.
Be forewarned system administrators: there won't be any Java client [if what Oracle said is true]. It will all be server based. Could be an issue with remote access cards for servers.
Errr. I think Apple should of notified users [and organisations] weeks ago. Another Apple failure.
Oh Trump will blame anyone but someone on his campaign team. Maybe Clinton, maybe the researcher [saying he is a Democrat even if he isn't], or IT in general.
He won't blame his friends in Russia.
Re: Leaving Microsoft
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.
Re: I wonder
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.
Re: Ahh yess
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?
Re: What about the rest of the telemetry?
Errr. Take courses at a college or university [and verify if a student, you met the requirements].
Re: What about the rest of the telemetry?
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.
