Microsoft are being shrewd and getting as many W7 sales as possible, before releasing a great W9 that will be bought again by these same people!!
No, OK it was only a thought :)
I dont think I would ever want to watch, or enjoy watching an Ad during a video, even if it was pornographic!
They actually make me mad at the company being advertised!!
Maybe a new business model would be for Tesco to pay Facebook to show me Morrsions Ads!!
So behind the times
Anyone intent on pirating a film will find it in HD quality all over the internet.
Do you really think they would PAY!! and record the film in poor quality with laughable audio, and then watch it again smugly eating his Lidl popcorn.
How out of touch are these companies, it is genuinely scary!! (Saying that a dont want to see a flashing red led light when I next go to the cinema in 2076)
I like gadgets
But at £1000 you have got to be a fool to buy this.
I wonder if its legal to drive wearing these, would serve as a great sat nav and dash cam!
There may well be one, but it wont involve Microshit kit!! W8 has destroyed MS, and I think its too far down the line for a recovery.
They may (partially) recover the desktop/business market if they produce a business friendly/workable version, but as for laptops/touchscreen, no chance!!
The most pointless and useless of the current versions of social networking.
In 10 years time we will not be using any of the current offerings, but Twitter will fade before facebook I feel.
One of a few companies I have boycotted, Sony being because of their audio CD auto-install virus back in the day.
Nice to see my boycott is working, not long now before they disappear and its all down to me :) :)
Microsoft need to do "good deeds" like this on a more regular basis. They might actually gain support rather than lose it in droves recently :)
If someone is paid from 9-5 12-8 8-12 etc then dont contact them outside their paid hours.
MS have come up with a SHIT operating system, a SHIT mobile operating system, and a SHIT touchscreen operating system.
Oh sorry, they are all the same SHIT!!!!!
Re: Best common sense tip?
It works like this to avoid calls dropping when transferring from one internal handset to another.
A better solution would be to not hand over your card or reveal your PIN number to anyone, just like the literature says in bold when you receive your bank cards in the post.
Yes I understand that the elderly are vulnerable sometimes, but banks do take a sympathetic view and will refund vulnerable customers as a rule.
Fine line between tighter bid/offer spreads (Which is good for average Joe) and market abuse (which is illegal but goes on all the time)
A global 0.5% stamp duty on every HFT trade would soon put a stop to the problem!
$1000 wouldnt be enough
I have had this misfortune to use a W8 laptop.
What a total pile of shit. The bluetooth mouse needed to be paired again on every re-boot. The graphics card crashed all the time, the wireless network would keep dropping every few mins, the "shared graphics" was just a shambles, and I could not select the AMD 8000 card to work with my browser or certain applications which insisted on using the inadequate intel HD graphics resulting in piss poor performance.
All in all I wanted to throw the laptop out of my window!!
The worst computer experience I have ever had!!
Before smashing the phone to bits I would have left it re-booting all night until the battery died. A forced shutdown due to lack of electrons moving around!!
your flagship HTC one trounces the latest Samsung phones in build quality, looks and speed.
Just advertise it a bit better when you make the HTC two!!! (And add an SD card and removable battery :)
And we wonder why
So many people hate the US/UK governments.
Both countries people can only be pushed so far before a backlash will occur that the authorities will underestimate!!
good app for android/iphone
Routes calls for 0800, 084 087 it has in its database through an 03 number that comes out of your standard call allowance.
This should be the standard punishment...
for burglary, robbery, armed robbery, dealing class A, all knife and gun crime, rape, child rape, murder, care home abuse etc!!
Most stupid idea ever
Like the government are going to allow 1000s of drones buzzing around everywhere. But more importantly the technology to do this is decades away at best!!
Have Barclays tried
Clearing the cookies!!
That graph suggests
Windows is very insecure!!
Re: I am an Apple fan...
Just spat my drink all over my screen. Windows phone 7 has humped iOS 5 LOLOLOL
I bought a legal digital copy of Scarface last year.
Took about an hour to "activate", and I was only allowed to activate it on one pc and watch it.
Needless to say I wont doing that again anytime soon.
The "blueray rip" I now have is better quality, plays on anything, and doesnt expire.
2 numpties they are!!
The thing is will they notice its the new model?
One Day.. Sooner than they think
The USA are going to be irrelevant when it comes to world powers. (As is Europe/UK)
Enjoy your last few years!!
Is that I am building up a nice a nice collection of bookmarks to watch sports on!!
The mobile networks give us faster connections but with less data allowance?
As stupid as the UK public can be, they are not stupid enough to sign up for this rip-off!!
Im not overly impressed with Samsung. Bought a HDTV and a Galaxy S3 and both are lacking the "X Factor" despite their premium prices IMO. Will be deserting them for my next purchase, I just think they are average rather than "cutting edge"
WOW, NOT WORTHY
I can still be bent over, but will be permitted to boot to my own desktop now. Where do I sign up to my bending over, I am not worthy!!
There has never been a better time in the computing era
For a company to take over as THE operating system software of choice for PCs.
And resign Microsoft to the history books.
Whether its 8.1, 8.2 etc etc it still goes down the pan just the same as 8.0
I am Mr under average
But I feel like I could make better decisions than the Microsoft board these days LOL
In other words
Windows 8.whatever is still shit
Re: No micro SD slot or removable battery - No sale!
Have to agree 100%. I wont even consider a phone that doesn't have these basic requirements, even if looks cooler than the coolest thing!!
Is it April 1st?
Surely this is not serious LOL
It looks lovely, really lovely, but without a removable battery and SD card slot it wont be seeing the inside of my pocket im afraid.
On a selfish note
I have not chosen to have children as I believe the human race is destined for a severe culling one way or another within the next 20-30 years.
And as a 43 year old I have enjoyed every day on this planet that I can remember.
So if the world does end tomorrow I can say its been a great life!!
100% sucessful solution
Just screen all calls, family/friends/genuine callers will speak after the tone, all sales calls will hang up before the greeting is finished.
Although sometimes I like to pick up the phone and have some fun :)
£60/$100 a month
Thats an insane amount to pay for a phone contract.
Considering you can currently get unlimited calls + texts + data for £21 a month with T-Mobile, (or if your really frugal you can get 100mins + 100 texts +400mb of data FREE every month on Ovivo), one has to be mad to pay that much, even with a free Iphone thrown in.
At the end of the day a phone is a phone, and no matter how much it cost it will be out of date in 6-12 months.
Authorised devises LOL
When will companies learn that letting pirates have more freedom with their media than paying customers do is hardly encouraging them to "go straight"
When we are all using either iOS164 with its 10 by 30 row of icons and ability to run 2 apps at the same time, or Windows52 with its revolutionary multiple windows tiles.
Either way a direct hit it cant come soon enough.
Sky have already priced it up
The "im on benefits" plan - standard def with XL adverts £20 pm
The "im on benefits and working on the side" HD plan with XL adverts £40 pm
The "im on benefits, working on the side with an undeclared partner" UltraHD plan with XL adverts £60 pm
The "im on benefits, working on the side with an undeclared partner and 2 kids" UltraHD plan + XL adverts + sports and movies £120 pm
Good article, cuts through all the crap you read from the loony lefties!!
As people use much more data, and much less calling/texting on their phones, they give an unlimited amount of what people dont use, and a puny amount of what people do use.
Give punters 20GB, along with 200 mins & texts for £20 a month and people will snap their arms off to sign up.
A shit product has low sales numbers.
A reasonable priceplan
£35pm for a new top of the line phone, unlimited minutes/texts and 10GB of data.
SIM only £20pm for the same.
I currently use about 5GB a months in total on my Galaxy S3, and dont stream, youtube or watch Iplayer etc
500MB is such a ridiculously low limit that EE must have a complete fool in charge of their tariff setting.
Can get away with a non-removable battery and lack of external storage. HTC thought they could get away with it and I believe it has cost them dearly on their flagship products.
If Apple made
A Ipad that was an inch thick and uglier than a 1980s phone, 10 million people would still buy 1 LOL
Not again LOL
I think we need a law limiting re-tuning to once a year max.
Surely each trade gets charged some sort of fee, so if computer programs are buying and selling millions of shares per second the broker is making money out of it?
