Fine! We'll keep updating WinXP's malware sniffer after April, says Microsoft

Re: If someone makes those updates available out on the web...

"And of course they'll be 100% risk free as they came from a warez site!"

Of course. Everything Microsoft sells is warez duffus!

Apple sends in the bulldozers as Fruit Loop construction begins

Jim in Hayward

Re: Will Apple still be around to see it's completion?

Silly coward,

(At least Microsoft have other product lines to prop up the dead Windows Phone). One needs a successful product line not based on the drug business. Did you know that smoking has dropped by more than 50% since 1995. Guess what, so has Windows dominance. Some may still use it because of necessity but most that have an option avoid it.

Microsoft Windows - the 'new' tabacco!

MS only has 1 hope. Ditch trying to rule the world and settle for a percentage of the profits.

How to find OS X Mavericks' 43 hidden photogenic beauties

Jim in Hayward

Wow.

A simple command + i reveals this:

146,674,427 bytes (146.7 MB on disk) for 48 items

Pretty simple to reveal an Apple hater, isn't it?

Re: It blows my mind

That's why your company tested everything first and found those 2. Therefor you company has not migrated to Mavericks yet until a solution can be found. What? They moved all 3 of your production machined over to Mavericks without any backup to restore from? Guess your corporate-wide VPN is back down to sneaker net. Well, at least the 3 of you can lose some weight!

Apple's Siri 'hurls insults' at Google Glass

Jim in Hayward
Joke

Re: Sense of Humour Failure

Yes. Siri can give me a laugh now and then. I saw that new ad for Googles Nexus 7 Andriod phone. This kid asks "Google, what is glossophobia" which promptly pulls up the definition via Google search. So I pull out my iPhone and ask "Siri, what is glossophobia" to which it pulls up the definition for claustrophobia. Bzzt.

So, I repeat, 3 times. Each time it can't find it (looking for glossa phobia, glass o phobia). Then I think, Aha~ Google is picking a long word to use-maybe Siri can't understand long words? So I ask "Siri, what is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" She responds:

"Is that you, Mary?"

LOL !! So funny!! I replied "Yes, Siri, I am a Mary"

Hey, Teflon Ballmer. Look, isn't it time? You know, time to quit?

Jim in Hayward
WTF?

Re: Smart Phones Myth

That part has always confused me. I would love to agree that MS has an advantage because they don't have to license their stuff, but, AFAIK, Microsoft MUST pay an amount equal to what they sell their licenses to OEM's. A company cannot sell at a loss or give away product from one division to another. Unless you are saying that Microsoft's hardware sales are somehow in the same Windows division I can't see that as true.

However, if it IS true this must be brought us to the Justice Department because that means Microsoft is back to doing their dirty tactics leveraging their OS monopoly into other business areas.

My top tip for Microsoft: Stop charging for Windows Phone 8

MS is not asking too much for a whole OS/eco-system

@BristolBachelor -

MS is asking too much. MS caters to the entire industry. Apple only caters to their own users which all MS only folks continue to deride as 4 % or less of the market. Surely, Bristol, you can't be suggesting that a company that influences 90% of the market be held to the same level as a company that influences 4% of the market?

It sure reads to me that you think Microsoft should be held accountable to the same levels of, what, a company that does 5% of what Microsoft does? In my opinion, a company that holds over 50% of the market share need to be very reactive and follow the wants/needs of the community.

Microsoft will never do that. They could own 100% of the market (as they did in the past) and STILL push their desire onto the market. Microsoft sucks and needs to close their doors and their warez can be release into the public domain where it will be fixed correctly.

why were MS in a position to say to manufacturers that they can't install Linux

It's quit simple, really. MS owns 100% of the desktop. All Windows. Along comes an inexpensive Netbook that does NOT include Windows. 6 months later....MS owns 90% of the desktop. Alarm bells ring. MS decided to threaten manufacturers to no longer install anything except Windows XP. Manufacturers relent since, while popular, said manufacturers still make over 60% of their profit from systems with Windows installed. Would you say it's a smart business decision to risk paying 25% more for the OS?

Seriously. Get out of lala land ACoward. I would like to know why Microsoft did not get into further trouble because of this. I mean, the consent decree between MS and USDOJ expires and they can go back to the threats? Crazy. Microsoft needs to go belly up and all their warez become public domain. EOS.

Re: Silly of MSFT to try and turn a profit on the WinPho OS.

Dave15 - they were the first to become a 1 trillion dollar company! Why is that? Because of their fanbois? WOW. Pretty damned rich fanbois I would say.

Face it. Apple did a better job than anyone else out there. Quit your whinning and just allow others to get some limelight instead of insisting that Microsoft is the only company allowed success and popularity.

To the nay sayers I say, grow up! Stop bleeting on and learn to use it.

Yes. It is also quite obvious Microsoft feels this way. Sorry, no one nor any company with this type of 'customer' retrospective get's MY money. I expect you to kiss my behind not shove commandments at me.

Good bye Microsoft. It was bearable while it lasted.

Windows 8: Microsoft's tablet-desktop still painful to swallow

Jim in Hayward

Re: a whole hour?

doggies...i mean dogged....get over it. these boards, none of them, sway public opinion. ever. period. but they do sort of reflect public opinion. in that no matter how many people microsoft pays to support their warez they are running an order of magnitude behind those who choose rather than "slavishly" adhere to them.

fact is, microsoft can try every tactic, including mimicry, but will fail to gain support. microsoft is toast and does not have the talent needed to regain their momentum to maintain their monopoly. soon, within 5 year i think, that monopoly will break and microsoft will have morphed into the new Apple. again. just copying others stuff. sad really.

Not really in Unix. MS even had Xenix (a Unix copy) back in the day, but all they can do is try to copy without a Xerox, just a carbon copy. Less tech, more damage. That's MS

Apple iOS 6 beta limits number of apps per device

It's so silly.

I am a fruity Apple Corp. product lover. But I have a grand total of 62 apps on my iPhone and 74 on my iPad (of which 62 are my iPhone apps).

This is a crazy amount of apps. I bet you can't run even 30 on a Windows phone!

The 550bn is for the stock shares.

It does not include the 100 billion they have in the bank. They are actually worth 650bn so any take over would have to be priced at over 650bn.

IBM puts AIX 5.3 on extended life support

Jim in Hayward

Re: Re: Related to ongoing contracts that are late and run on AIX 5.3 perhaps

Well, I don't know about you, but I pride myself on having actual working knowledge of 80% of every OS on the planet. It does make it difficult but I think that IBM did a great thing with their OS being able to virtualize the older OS. I can't keep 10 servers around my home office!

I don't think anyone is complaining about IBM's approach. It is good, fair to those that just will not budge, and a good incentive to move to new hardware and OS.

This is how Microsoft should work. Sadly, MS will be dead in 12 years when the hanger-oners (lol) finally give up.

Last year's iOS sales surpassed all Macs ever sold

Jim in Hayward
Thumb Up

Re: "OS X may "look" more like iOS but it'll still be a "proper computer" for those that need it.."

Hardly....I read recently that even AutoCad is coming out with a Mac OSX version. Mac's are still strong and getting stronger in the tech world. iOS just dominates the computing realm (that includes smartphones and tablets). It makes sense to apply some of the iOS stuff into OSX but OSX will always be OSX. Adding things does not mean they are removing other features and functions.

Mac will live long and prosper...as will iOS!

I kinda hafta disagree. I ran to Apple to escape the Microsoft world back in 1998. As the years went by I was able to more and more tell family, friends and colleagues that my Microsoft skills were diminished and they should look elsewhere. Now I am getting more and more family, friends and colleagues asking Apple questions. Still, it was a great trade off. I only get 5% of the questions I used to get and the answers and a simple sentence or two.

Gotta love Apple tech for consumers! Which, frankly, is the majority of computer users these days.
