It didn't mention Mac and Linux
because in the business desktop and server scheme of things they are insignificant. Sorry, but there we are. Also I wonder if the XP situation was exacerbated by the major worldwide recession we've just had.
Ah yes ...
... fond memories of waiting an eternity for the C64 multiload tape version to load. It was good, but it wasn't Winter Games.
Android users do not upgrade their OS as much
mainly because even if they want to their carrier will often not have updated their own bloatware-laden shitheap derivative due to resources or the desire to nudge the customer towards upgrades.
And the lame troll attempt of the month award goes to ...
... because surely nobody could *actually* be that clueless.
"Ironically, most "native" applications would be useless without a web to connect to and share data through"
I often wonder whether people who write that sort of thing are actually aware of the reality of what people who use computers in the business and productivity world actually *do* from day to day.
Yes, welcome ...
"Welcome to web development 25 years after the birth of the web and ..."
... it's still a monumental ballache to get anything done.
Vomit .... heave ... vomit ....
"“Executives and #GenMobile employees alike prefer an increasingly mobile style of working and IT organizations are feeling the pressure to adapt existing technology investments to meet their requirements,” said Ben Gibson, chief marketing officer for Aruba Networks. "
#GenMobile ... fuck OFF
As soon as I read the headline
I got a mental image of Frink from The Simpsons.

Making Software Development An Attractive Career While At The Same Time Identifying Those With Aptitude Early On And Encouraging Them Via Apprenticeship
... would be a much more sensible proposition.
No, no, no Cisco!
For this to be taken seriously the acronym must be changed to FNAR.
Ridiculous hat worn inside:
I hope Apple do similar
Re: Can't Wait
Cue one clueless news site after another
causing this to end up as a 'holographic phone' after a week of lazy cutting and pasting from other clueless news sites.
Hello from across the road
... from one of Microsoft's two facilities in leafy Sandyford, Dublin. Both of which are pretty big, neither of which strike me as big enough to be a European physical media distribution centre. If I remember, when I used to get physical media for MSDN developer stuff, it came from Germany.
From reading the sample above linked by DioDesign
all I can say is that if it fooled 33% of the people testing it then they're a pretty credulous bunch.
Re: Pot - Kettle
How about you FUCK OFF SPYING ON ME
This driverless car stuff is nonsense.
We'd have it already if we really needed it.
Ah, Elon ...
In many ways he's the Peter Molyneux of the billionaire world. But maybe someday some crackpot scheme will work, so good luck to him.
Monitored house alarms.
They all have a little simmy wim.
Non-reflective laptop screens.
SHOOT the marketing department and GIVE US THEM.
PC version apparently has issues with AMD cards
and did I hear talk of a 10GB day one patch?
He'd take something else that already exists and jazz it up with great design and implementation, and then claim Apple invented it.
is a stupid term.
Re: Front facing camera
Re: Irony Streams are Pots of Gold for the Purchasing of Untold Riches ...
Authentic frontier gibberish.
Does anyone else invent their own words for t'theme?
It was a war
It was in the stars
la la la laa ...
You mean there's an free open source equivalent of InDesign that's functionally comparable and binary compatible? DON'T TAKE MY DAMN MONEY!
This not-requiring-Gold-for-streaming change ...
Does it apply to 360 also?
Cmder all the way.
it's the best Windows equivalent of a *nix graphical console. Also free and you can install a version with msysgit giving you Git commands.
Zip drives were great while they lasted
but I have never seen anything blown out of the water as quickly as zip drives once the first Disgo USB Flash sticks appeared.
Re: "What methodology is used to calculate StatCounter Global Stats?"
> That explains why even strong pro-Windows websites like TheRegister
El Reg is strongly pro-Windows in the sense that the Tea Party thinks the BBC is strongly pre-left, i.e. it only looks like that from way over in the other direction.
they'll have to steal some more ideas quick.
The Wii U
... is not a competitor for the One and the PS4 any more than the Wii was for the PS3 and 360.
Great word, furtling ...
... an old boss of mine used to use it all the time in the Yorkshire meaning of 'messing with'. He was unaware of the naughty original meaning.
ET was indeed released on the VCS
and is not as bad as the big boys said down at the internet. It's shite, like, but I've played a *lot* worse.
"Less so for organisations running Ubuntu on lots of PCs and moving to 14.04"
Is there no centralised way to push a change to the default privacy settings a la Group Policy in Windows?
Re: @asdf The desktop deadend.
Can I do a major version upgrade of Mint yet without backing up/reinstalling from scratch/restoring? No? Bye then!

the perps and their friends
thought the whole thing was terrific
It's all silly.
Not every kid should be a coder any more than they should be a car mechanic. The people with a natural affinity should be identified early and encouraged in that direction. For everyone else, a good grounding in using computers, staying secure online and basic troubleshooting is all they need. The whole idea of everyone being able to code is daft. It's complicated, not everyone can do it. Like fixing a car engine.
The lack of scoping is a total PITA
... if a bit reliant on confusing messing around with functions.
Maybe in a few years you'll be able to do that. Maybe.
The usual sales flim-flam
from a vested interest.
Re: Wired ethernet is not a rarity for laptops
Fair enough, but I'm betting those offices are mainly Apple
Wired ethernet is not a rarity for laptops
It was never common in the home, and in the office they're still most cabled in.
Disabledt cut & paste eh?
Let's see how you do against screen cap software,
Regarding VPNs and VNC
They're all great and all - but require configuration and dicking around with firewalls. The attraction is stuff that works over port 80.
