Global banking collapse fails to dent broadband

Consolidation!

I run a local computer consultancy, and I've found that a lot of my customers are switching to bundled products to save money that way. Some people are saving £15-£20 a month just by switching to a bundled package!

Scareware package mimics Windows Blue Screen of Death

Not a new tactic...

Not actually a new tactic. Some malware (AntiVirus XP 2009 for one) actually uses the SysInternals BSOD screensaver as part of their "payload" - so you think it's playing up, and so pay to remove it.

I've seen it in action not long ago. Nasty bit of kit. Incidentally, the BSOD Screensaver is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897558.aspx

Microsoft offers EU choice on Windows browsers

So what about those of us who's preordered already?

That's definitely a relief for those of us who have held off pre-ordering the E version, because what's the first thing you'd need to do when it comes? Flatten the machine and load the OS from scratch.

I've pre-ordered the E version of Professional from Amazon, and, while I don't mind wiping the machine (just to get rid of the last little bit of Vista on there), it would be a benefit if we could upgrade.

Interesting development. Not entirely unexpected, and definitely more welcome.
