Microsoft guns down 13 unlucky products

Thumb Down

@ Andrew Culpeck

My God man! Could the spelling of your off the cuff, totally unfunny and equally inaccurate comment have been any worse? Turn your spellchecker on for the sake of all of us.

Sony store?

No one in their right mind buys from the Sony store. Us fanbois go elsewhere. £650 delivered from Amazon.

On an unrelated note...

"the McG-helmed film's 21 May US premiere (3 June in UK)"

So the freetards will have a field day again. What a way to run a business.

Microsoft ditches Live Search product upload tool

Richard
Stop

All that's left...

...is for them to ditch Live Search altogether.

MS exec "We've got more money than God and what the world needs now is a new search engine! Name a successful search engine with global brand identity."

MS minion "Google?"

MS exec "Apart from that one."

MS minion "Yahoo!?."

MS exec "And that one."

MS minion "...err..."

MS exec "See! I'm right. A gap in the market!" (Dreams of rising stock options and the keys to the executive toilets.)

Hacking the Apple TV

@ Gordon Moar

Well said that man.

And @ Mectron...

As a long serving Windows fanboi I still fail to see the point or need for Media Centre. It pains me to say it but there it is. Every now and again I do a new install and think 'Hey, what's this? Oh, it's the same POS as last time.'

And a question to all. I've got a mate who insists on using a Mac. It's his birthday in a few days. Would he go weak at the knees for one of those Turbo.264 jobbies? It's all Greek to me.

@ andy

'I've never met a single person (in the UK) who owns one of these'

I bought the one they sold in the UK.

tbh I think they're a nice bit of kit. Quiet night in on the sofa with SWMBO, nothing on the TV, nothing you fancy from 'other sources'? Fire up the Apple TV. With a US iTunes account the choice of viewing is very good.

For me it was one of those impulse gadget buys that I don't regret.
