Re: an executable file with a double extension.
But surely they'd see the double extension and...oh...wait...Windows users.
But surely they wouldn't allow important systems to run unapproved exe files and...oh...wait...Windows users.
A pattern is starting to emerge.
That would be "still".
How about allowing AdblockPlus for Chrome? Problem solved.
iOS only? Seriously? So it could only reach - what - 15% of users?
This is the kind of brilliance that we've come to expect from Turnbull.
"Hey - this product we've got really stinks. People hate it."
"Well, we'd better fix it then."
"You mean make it work better?"
"Don't be stupid - we'll do what we've always done!"
"Ah. Change the name. Gotcha."
Re: Oh boy, probably continuing the ever-worse skype releases...
Skype turned to shite as soon as Microsoft got its grubby hands on it, and it's getting worse. Now it's just untrustworthy shite.
El Reg, you really need to find correspondents who have a basic command of English, or use a sub editor.
Australia has an opposition now?
Thank the gods. What are they called?
" Its shocking that to date - Internet explorer doesn't work on linux or android out the box."
I'd say it's a good thing. There may be some in the open source world who'd be tempted to try it - this takes away whatever minuscule temptation there may be.
"When did Australia become a fascist state?"
At the last federal election.
Re: Hollywood is responsible....
"I wonder what the S.I. units of Incompetence are?"
5 Samsungs = 1 Microsoft.
No doubt there was much hilarity as the Chinese pored over the plans of the Flying Lemon.
Re: Hershey stands for a unique chocolate flavour..........
"Hershey chocolate" is an oxymoron.
Anyone who adds a modifier to "unique" - as in "very unique" should be shot into space in a canon to examine the pillars first-hand.
Really - did you actually pay that 10 year old to do that?
Dreadful. Just dreadful.
It's nearly 2015
And people are *still* using Windows?
Maybe if the twunts at Apple paid tax on their Australian operations they'd have a stronger argument.
The irony fairly drips.
Still - credit where it's due. It's a good thing.
Who sups with the devil needs use a long spoon.
"Leverage" is a noun. The verb you're looking for is "exploiting".
Re: What are the infection rates for desktop linux users?
I believe there was one Linux virus detected in the wild some time ago, but IIRC you had to specifically install it. I don't think there were any records of infection.
Re: " ... weighed as much as a 4x4 vehicle"
Can we have that in football fields please?
They used to have laws about treason.
"Free" means, in this context, "at no cost", "for nothing". Putting "for" in front of it is a grammatical abomination.
Or any signatory to the Trans Pacific Partnership Abomination.
"Intercept" is a verb. The word you're looking for is "interception".
Re: Pirate product keys in comments
Soooooo last century!
Re: How wonderful !
No comparison. The JBL rig is SO much more natural and realistic.
Murdoch and Apple - a matched pair.
"Invite" is a verb.
Ur holdin' it wrong.
Give that man a medal.
"What - you want to see how we manipulate the results? Bugger off."
Probably closer to 99, but have a like anyway.
Precisely, It's a crosshatch. Trust the Yanks to fsck it up.
Given that the Americans measure everything in football fields, they probably got it right.
Of course they never say which brand of football. (I assume they're all different sizes.)
The Microsoft solution - don't build a decent product, but do lots of advertising.
...about 16 feet long and weighed in at 900 pounds
But what's that in football fields?
This gives new meaning to
"You're holding it wrong."
They must be stopped!
Defund them immediately!
A damn good effort for a first go!
But Windows has always been a POS
Well someone had to say it.
Now with even more shite!
No doubt they'd allow dog turds for political donations if there was a buck in it.
I'd have thought that a mirror would be cheaper.
Maybe they were just holding it wrong.
