Free Windows 10 upgrade: Time is running out – should you do it?

bex

windows 7

installing windows 7 and trying to get it fully updated these days is a nightmare and quite often needs intervention to finish. The last time I tried Wsus offline it got stuck on something and even when it eventually finished windows had extra crap it wanted to install

Microsoft boots fake fix-it search ads

the internet, can't live with it .........

Search engines have become a minefield of crap links, you want a driver, it's there somewhere but you will have to trawl through a myriad "driver update solutions" disguised as what you want to find the proper file.

Ant-Man: Big ideas, small payoff

Origin movies are usually a bit on the dull side but this takes it up a notch, slow with too little action is my take.

bex

Sad face

I was trying to get a customers Ipad to stop being an ass when the trukking thing popped up that Sir Terry was dead. it was like being punched in the gut.

It's a sad day, the man brought joy and broadened the imagination of millions. For a man like this to get such a disease is a tragedy. I am grateful for every word in every story he wrote. Gone but never forgotten, I will miss you Sir Terry.

one film edit

When you make movies for the sake of money instead of content you get the pointless 3 movie hobbit.

Hopefully someone will cleverly edit this into a one movie with filler removed, coming to a torrent site soon?

Someone at theregister uk is on the juice

Defenestrated is a word someone came up with to be clever but does not mean what the above title supposes. I know on a hump day you need to come up with something but throwing a person through a window does not fit this none story.

Zippy one-liners, broken promises: Doctor Who on the Orient Express

bex

I don't get it

Dr Who got too silly and gave up with making any sense by the end of Tennant's incarnation. SF is supposed to mean fiction not fantasy

The every episode has to be an extravaganza turned me right off.

FBI boss: Apple's iPhone, iPad encryption puts people 'ABOVE THE LAW'

bex

Either Apple are lying or have fucked up

A good web site does not keep your password on the server but uses that to make a keys that cannot tell you the original password . You could use a similar system to encrypt a users files emails etc but if the user loses the password how do you get back in. You can't send them a reset password as this would not decode the files.

Apple takes blade to 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display

Re: 1000 quid!

still can't put the touchpad where it's supposed to be, in the middle.

It's not really a macbook killer, it looks kind of clunky and is the touchpad up to the spec of the brilliant apple glass ones, I doubt it.

2-3 year desposable no thants

I have a 2011 macbook pro that has a battery that though having a weird screw holding it in is replaceable, I have already replaced the battery as it was failing, until they stop their ridiculous policy of gluing in the battery, I will look elsewhere, which is a shame.
