"Consistent with ... evolving platform efforts, ... way to broadcast professional content...connections. ...Moving forward"
LinkedIn really is beyond parody.
No doubt the linux kiddies will hold this tiny concern responsible for the fact that their hobby operating system continues to maintain a 1% market share, despite decades of promotion by thousands of shrill advocates.
Not the first time this has happened, they completely screwed up christmas 2005 as well, that time due to insufficent despatch and warehouse staff. I was working there at the time, on the phones in customer service, and took calls all through the 23rd and 24th from irate and in some cases crying customers who'd had christmas presents and food fail to turn up. I see they still haven't learnt.
I can't have been the only person to think "that seems like an odd area for Jimbo Wales to move into"
The unanswered question is...
What sort of workload would a box like this be handling?
Do doubt the pensioner in this article thinks she is owed broadband by BT / the taxpayer.
If she doesn't like the price, she can live with dial up, buy a sat phone or move. It's no-one else's responsibility.
How can you miss out the classic intellimouse explorer?
Only £20, and you still see more of them at LANs than any of these other hussied up abominations.
Well after you've gone to the effort of warezing CS4 with the intention of putting a hilarious logo on a picture of your pet, you've got to learn how to use the damn thing (red 24 point impact, 4 point stroke)
Encouraging users to run .reg files is a security liability itself.
It's rather academic at this stage
It's not as if anyone's actually been paying any attention to this rule anyway.
Who cares about 2k?
2K's market share is tiny now, and much of it's alleged security will be down to demographics, as hinted at by other correspondents, and the fact that there's no money to be made in attacking such a minor OS.
Also, IT pros run server 2k8 as a desktop OS.
IIRC something like 8% of users had donated, so about 13,000. Most of these were probably for the minimum amount; since people were donating for extra features, not out of altruism; giving a total of perhaps £25k after currency conversions. That dosen't go far when you're running TB source, and are getting on the order of 10m scrapes per hour
Call the waaaambulance
As soon as Microsoft come along with a proper grown up product, and displace Loonix from one of its tiny sucesses, the Linux faithful's only response is "they must have bribed the government". Obviously nothing to do with Windows being better, or a desire to have interoperability with 95% of the world. Oh no.
Another quality Apple product
It's good to see that you get high quality in return for your $500 markup. No wonder the most popular feature in System 10.5 is Volume Shadow Copy, err, I mean Time Machine.
If there was a market...
If there was a market for PCs running Linux, and costing £480 rather than £520, PC World would sell them. There isn't. So they don't.
... Mr Garland's comment simply isn't true. A Mac Pro configured as he suggests would be $2,927. Add a X1950 and it's $3,176. There's no option to add two X1950s, to actually take it up to the same spec, as apple don't support crossfire or SLI.
You can check all of this at store.apple.com if you doubt me.
