'Leave EU means...' WHAT?! Britons ask Google after results declared

Nathan 13

Is all this crybaby stuff

The result of children not being allowed to lose at school any more?

Referendum was held, leave won, get over it and start the process to leave the nightmare that is the EU already!

Update your buggy Samsung PC bloatware to plug privilege bug

Nathan 13

I would never

buy a computer with bloatware/crapware installed.

Quality stores never add this shit, but the mass market ripoff stores do in spades and should be avoided IMO.

In obesity fight, UK’s heavy-handed soda tax beats US' watered-down warning

Nathan 13

Tax Tax and more fucking tax

Why not charge the obese for treatment, and not tax everyone including those that drink soda drinks responsibly, dont have a BMI of 50 and look after themselves.

How long before the local scallywags are going to add soda to their shopping list of fake alcohol and tobacco products.

The Windows 10 future: Imagine a boot stamping on an upgrade treadmill forever

Nathan 13

Most people

Just want a desktop PC to work like XP and W7 does.

Yes have touchscreen and tiles on tablets and phones.

But a desktop PC is best operated with a mouse, and by installing your programs than run in windows accessed by either shortcuts or the start menu.

If Microsoft cannot make that any more, then people who use desktops will look for the best alternative, which will be a trade of between ease of use, and quality of the experience.

If Android desktop could be actually better in both the above areas than Mircosoft, then its a BOOM!!!

Microsoft adds 'non-security updates' to security patches

Nathan 13

How bad it must W10 be

For MS to try so hard to force it on people's PCs. Have they no shame let alone morals?

A couple of my friends have inadvertently installed the W10 downgrade. I have at least put classic shell on, made sure they never have to see the shit metro screen and (hopefully) disabled all the tele bullshit.

I really cant be arsed to do a restore/re-format because they will only click some button that downgrades it to 10 again.

'Here are 400,000 smut sites. Block them' says Pakistani telco regulator

Nathan 13

All this cost, time and effort, for something that takes even your average citizen 2 minutes to find a way around it.

The only way to stop people watching online porn is to blind them.

Net neutrality-lovin' Sweden mulls law to censor the internet

Nathan 13

Re: [The ISP] responded by offering every customers a free VPN service

I would put it past A&A to do this. They are very vocal about the evil of government filtering/censorship.

Microsoft steps up Windows 10 nagging

Nathan 13

Even overclockers

Cant sell me a decent laptop without W10, even if I wanted to spend £1500 on one.

I will not use W10, I would rather revert to an abacus.

TalkTalk offers customer £30.20 'final settlement' after crims nick £3,500

Nathan 13

As much As I want Talk Talk To FAIL

If someone responds to a fishing, vishing, spearfishing call and gives out their banking codes, they are still the ones who are culprable.

Its in their banks T&Cs, and customers are warned when signing up, logging in, and even attemping to make an online or telephone payment.

Sorry I HATE TT, but they cant be blamed for pig shit stupid people!!

Basic minimum income is a BRILLIANT idea. Small problem: it doesn't work as planned
