the lying liars.
why their broadband prices had gone up twice in 6 months.
No there isn't you absolute Tory tit end.
'Mind the pseudogap' yet?
i.e. everything must come from our monetised app store.
Who needs Microsoft? People who need the use the actual software that actual businesses need day to day? Gamers? And so forth.
Well done if you run Linux. So do I. You're delusional if you think it will be the year of Linux on the consumer or corporate desktop any time soon though.
Good developers are by nature introverted beasts I think, plus there's always the thinly-disguised contempt for everyone else's perceived lunatic way of doing things.

And people who need to use actual real software to run their businesses and so forth.
So much lazy use of the term 'AI' being flung around in the tech and wider press at the minute. As if we had anything even approaching an intelligence, as opposed to a very expert system, pattern recognition etc. Are we really any close ro an actual AI than we were in the 1970s or 1980s?
"Microsoft will be paying vendors to deploy their malware os Windows 10...."
They don't need to, most people want to use it anyway.
... I can't even remember my MySpace one from 12 years ago ...
This again. The bandying about of the term 'AI' like it's either here or due next year is rife on tech sites now. Pattern recognition and pathfinding is not AI for fuck's sake.
Anyway. These look like they would be very handy for drug smuggling assuming they're small enough to avoid radar detection.
>we already know that all the Microsoft apps in the store have search hijackers ...
or is it still marketing wankspeak for the easily led?
when they've rarely innovated? What, really, have they ever invented, as opposed to applying exceptional design and build quality to things that already existed?
still a big baby.
for the love of sanity. We can't keep the stuff on the internet that's supposed to be on the internet secure, why the fuck are we connecting fridges?
BOOM he went there
"Of course, it won't do mentioning that the SWIFT protocol itself is from the age of parchment"
Ain't that the truth ...
I live on a 10 year old estate and can get 1 Gbps, and most built-up areas can pull at least 20 Mbps these days. If you're well out in the sticks though it's a very different story and that doesn't strike me as much different from what I see in the UK.
Web development is a mess. Hey ho.
Wasn't he in various Pratchett books?
Quite a lot of things. Far from 'almost anything'. Browser is still a bad choice for many applications. And remains an ever more complex pain in the tits to develop for.
We can't even keep the "internet of things that are supposed to be on the internet" secure from hackers and governments, why do people think connecting cars and fridges to it is a good idea?
While haven't worked with Sage since the mid 1990s (Sage Sovereign how are ya) but I assume the mid-range and higher is still customisable and extendable by resellers. All that will go by the wayside too if everyone has to be on the same cloudy version all the time.
if only some of those tens of thousands of pieces of software in the repository included software that businesses need like MS Office, ERP etc, and some games ...
Not unless the business desktop stops existing by 2025.
Right. Like 3 or 4 percent.
dickhead crybaby he continually proves himself to be.
know how long a bit would take to travel end to end?
"wxWidgets, GTK, Qt, and even JAVA make for better cross platform development than ".Not""

Ahahaha. Ah man.
Why indeed. Unfortunately nobody wants to. What *would* be extremely useful is running Windows software on Linux.
... you can't install it on Windows 7. Way to nobble take-up, Microsoft.
and more concentrating on avoiding disastrous implementations and lawsuits.
Oh grow up.
If only they ran the games I want to play and the business\productivity software I need.
... needs a fourpenny one up the f**king bracket.
Yeah we definitely have a 'three bags full sir' attitude to the Yanks, but in fairness US tourism and investments like this are about the only game in employment town in a lot of the west.
... however to cite it as the only reason is just incorrect - many of these companies are just as interested in the fact that Ireland is the only English-speaking country in the Euro currency area. And in the event of Brexit, it'll be the only English-speaking country in the EU.
'Elite' had an entire galaxy and fitted in a 32KB BBC Micro. Also Doom is 2.5D.
