Yeah, but can I wipe it and put PROPER windows on there?
You think "rubbish at updates, world-class at rapid rollbacks" is an advert?
Upvoted for honesty!!
This is a good move by MS, you'd be mental to want all IE's non-standard extensions moved into a new product. The Reg in it's typical style spins that as "MS allow Ads!" and the commentards pile in about how shit that is.
You're supposed to be smart enough to see beyond the baity headlines, ffs.
Then there's something wrong with it, or the network it's sat on.
Don't know about 7 but 8 is pretty good at listing the things that are stopping it closing and letting you say you don't care. If you're not seeing a screen like that (and you are on a relatively modern version of windows) then it's unlikely that it's a user app causing the shut down to be slow.
A quick nose in the system logs might shed some light onto the issue, but the problem here is that the workaround (go away and leave it to sort itself out) is working so well there's little incentive to sort it.
No. It isn't. The "one thing that is the default" is the one that you get if you don't specifically pick something. That's what a default is.
Any chance you could arrange those words to make sense? "Search on your phone rules out baffle them with Bear Scat"????
That wasn't supposed to be a stumper.....
It's the government of the whole country. Don't you think about other people just a little bit?
Well, this one just "over firmly denies" things. Not fibbing as such.
It's either a very elaborate stitch up or the edits of a very stupid tory toerag. Reading the wikipedia discussions around contribsx's edits leads me to suspect the latter.
That is something I have always wanted to do.
We do indeed. And to get to that point we have to start somewhere.
You have to optimise a lot to make up for the losses of transmission from station to house and the two conversions, heat to electric and electric back to heat. Got any numbers or references?
Bah. Burn gas underneath your saucepan. Works with all kinds of pots, including woks, ferrous or not, and you can see the flame to adjust it.
Never understood the logic of burning gas in a power station and turning the heat to electricity only to then turn it back into heat on a stove.
Crop rotation in the 14th century was considerably more widespread after John.
...and move on?
No. Stereoscopic 3d only gives an illusion of depth because you can't judge distance properly. Focal length doesn't change. You can tell that things are in front of or behind other things, but not how far.
3D imaging that does allow you to focus at depth is in development. If that succeeds it will be better than plain stereoscopic 3d.
(Not a comment on this tech in particular!)
Maybe we could cleanse them?
IKR, I hate getting to the station before the platform's arrived. Where do you stand?
Yeah, anyone know a good tech news site?
Educational material should be platform agnostic.
So could be replaced by anything with a decent browser? Sweet if so....
Well, if fundamental architectural decisions like that haven't been made yet they're fucked.
The problem is leaking any information from one supposedly discreet process to another. But I get your point, this does seem to be just a start for further work rather than a usable exploit.
Makes you wonder how browsers can mitigate against this exploit without deliberately slowing stuff down to make it look like the cache was changed when it wasn't....
It looks like they can detect that a mouse has been moved or that network activity has occurred. It's not the "we watched you typed your password" I was expecting from the article. They don't seem to know where the mouse went or what it did. Is it just a case of grabbing more data and finessing the algorithms to get it to be a real risk or is that a long way off?
5. Some people take this much too seriously.
6. In doing so they ruin a hilarious thread.
7. I downvoted your boring list.
The only comments I enjoy more than the ones with no useful content other than stating that they agree with the OP and have upvoted their comment are the ones where someone comments about upvoting a comment for having no useful content other than stating that they agree with the OP and have upvoted their comment! Upvoted!!!!
"cant say I've noticed it being any more buggy than its predecessor"
Your point being?
Well don't drive so close then. The vehicle in front may brake at any time, even if the reason isn't apparent from behind. It's your fault if you hit them whatever the situation, so back the fuck up.
Do you drive an Audi?
I knew they'd be at the bottom of it.
Love you Google!!
Yeah! Bring back the birch!!!
Though I condemn ISIS they do have some good ideas like stoning people to death in the street, lopping off limbs of petty criminals. You know, _Punishment_.
They deserve it. The explanation of the problem makes it pretty clear they they didn't think this "security feature" through properly.
Governments, Apple, Microsoft, Tasimo. Anything to avoid focussing on Google.
Yeah, that's right Grandad. It's all just Thump Thump Thump these days. And those bloody teddy boys... I despair!
Anyway, isn't it time for your nap?
Wow! That's a fantastic feature. I wish my windows laptop could be opened and used......
(Maybe it could, if I wiped it and put a PROPER linux on there.....)
Hey, AC. Hiding your name while insulting other people is pathetic.
You have a user name, use it or fuck off.
OOOh! I bet they're shitting bricks! Handbag icon please!!
Yeah, those tolerant bastards, with their lack of prejudice. What a bunch of cunts!
Then you need to take control of the update process. Set it to "Notify me" and update manually before taking it anywhere, and reboot. Then it won't install updates when you don't expect it to or leave you with the process half finished waiting for a reboot.
That would be the "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" option.
then why does it get executed?
Ah, you were at those dodgy meetings! Well, if you say there's no cause for concern that's good enough for me!!
Or don't buy a phone with an OS that doesn't get security updates.
Of course it must be that the woman was ugly. Whoever heard of a stupid man?
Overeaction mods! That was some quality banter you just deleted.
Really? So 99% of them do the work but the special 1% take all the credit?
