Workers can't escape Windows 8 Metro - Microsoft COO

Vetis

First: I have to admit to using Vista at home, installed it when it was released and I've never had a problem with it.

Im using the 8 CP and i don't get why bars and buttons are getting bigger on a lot of programs while actual useful space is declining. They even removed the classic theme which I have been using since XP. The OS should be in the background letting you run what you want, not the main feature of the PC.

Nintendo takes control with next-gen games console

Vetis

rip off games

The only reason for all the backward compatability is to keep the price of their last gen console titles high.

Been with NTL/Virgin for nearly 8 years and not had a single problem. Speed seems fine too.

WoW

predictable jokes. besides, no-one said it has to be set in the current timeline.

the major conflict ended before vanilla wow by the way, with minor skirmishes lingering but still long before shattrath.

Chrome OS: Windows killer?

upgrading to shiny new things when you dont need to

The Excel thing..really? Not sure what the point of that was but most of the article screamed..what is new and shiny is good and what is old and tested is bad..even if it works and does everything you need it to. upgrading for the sake of it is just stupid. is there something vital missing from the older version?

This quote also says the same "more focused on design attributes which drive the consumerist desires we all share". You might, I look for features vs price.

get the shiny things! oo same thing but different colours? must pay full price again.

humbug.

Sex offender email monitoring plan mothballed

Vetis

double standards?

Hmm, so they cant monitor those dangerous people but a database of exactly the same information for the whole law abiding population is fine?

Good work government.

Gamer suspended from Xbox Live after saying she's gay

Vetis

agree with AC

It's a gaming network, your orientation should have no place in it.

Unless she was using it to try and pick up others as that is the ONLY reason to include it. I think this is one of the reasons why, they dont want Xbox live to turn into a pickup joint.

Agree with AC in that why do people need to shout about certain things when it clearly has no place in the arena they are venting it in.

Are the ice caps melting?

Vetis
Thumb Up

excellent

Not sure why its on the reg but love the article.

Its a shame more newspapers don't do long term temperature trend analysis over one day "hottest day since gates of hell opened etc.." scare stories, but then people would be informed. But I guess "ice caps bigger than x years ago, temp pretty much varies but stable with some variance over last 100 years" isn't an exciting headline.

Virgin warns 800 punters for file-sharing

Alert

New news story

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/jul/03/virgin.filesharers

"As part of this we don't make any kind of accusation about the user — it could be somebody else in their house, their block of flats or they might have an open Wi-Fi connection," said the spokesman.

"We can't point the finger at the account holder, but we can point out what's happening with their connection. Often it's a lack of education that's causing the problem."

So Virgin wont be cutting anyone off, they are leaving it to the rights holders or representatives to take action as it has been for some time already.
