" look for ways to invade the MBR, BIOS, and/or EFI to get around OS safeguards and try to gain nuke-resistant."
Oh dear, when will evil M$ (and others) do *ANYTHING* to stop this happening to us! Oh if ONLY they could do something, you know make the boot secure, hell maybe even call it SecureBoot
One OS for Mobile, Desktop and server....
That sounds awfuly familiar.
this along with the proposed standard size power/ plugs for power adapters for things like laptops are making things so much nicer.

Bloody hell, nothing but remakes in that list.
In fact only ones I could see are Tickabilla (Playschool), Bob the Builder and Postman Pat. Oh I guess bedtimes stories is Jackanory.
..angry customers, missed flights, lenghty queues.
So looks like normal business has been restored.

Again...another tech that bores me...

...if you go in with Chrome / SW iron, it asks you every fucking time to "upgrade" to ie or firefox, then asks you to choose a theme (hello 1990) , forgetting this shitty "feature" everytime.
"Microsoft requires all Windows RT devices to have the UEFI secure boot feature permanently enabled."
This explains it all a bit better.

Well if they actually bothered fixing the bloody great holes a big quicker, you may get some more....

Re: "Apple did not invent idea of a tablet. Microsoft did that."
Actually I think you'll find the likes of the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians invented the tablet with a deives with which to take handwritten not upon, well before any of those.
"In the US it is different, but in the European Union, free speech is no defence for a publication when readers make defamatory comments on its website."

And how many ranted to the Daily Hate, sorry mail....
Cultures are different get over it. If you read the like of the British press, one minute we're demanding Burka's are banned then the next wailling that kids are exposed to much flesh, we moan about the price of goods, then demand the price of booze and fags are massivly increased.
The best thing for humanty is to get rid of fucking bigoted xenophobics and accept people of different instead of blanket stament "oh the Turkish are terrible" or the Isrealis are evil.
Now you have the few in real power who are complete dickheads, who like to stir up shit to keep themselves in power, the majority of people, when not told what to think, just want to get on with life.
A lovely example.

Re: XP eveywhere
And they tend not to browse the internet....
I should downvote you
As you have shown a degree of common sense and no rabid fanboyism, which as you know is against the spirt of things on here.
our Charity (of which I'm one of the 5 founding directors), bar the 4 youth workers directly employed full time, pays bugger all out, in fact I estimate it costs me about £100 a year to help out as well as a few hundred hours per year.
Not all charities are the same (usually the larger ones are the ones you are thinking of).
"Must compete with Intel on-board graphics"
You mean like the AMD integrated stuff they do now, or the Fusion APU's? Either of which are way better than average CPU + Intel on-board.
If you do need XP
Then try and grab a copy of Steady State (although no longer on MS website) and bang that on with disk protection turned on.
hey presto, Instant "VM"
Failing that use a 3rd party one (at a cost) such as Drive Vacine or Deep freeze.
Re: Not The Whole Story
Embeded & not on the internet are not really an issue.
Until recently we have an W2K machine just ticking away minding it's own business connected to a single bit of kit, it's only when it decided to go pop one day did we replace it.
Lets face it, if it's built into hardware, not on the internet and hasn't needed to be updated in the last few years, chances are it will never need to be.
Maybe because they were still there?
Re: Amazon's way of doing it
Nope have 4 android devices with App-store and never once have I seen that.
"Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised that the recipient's assistant opens the letter....."
It's not correct.
It should be:
Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised if the postman opens up your letters, has a little read, finds a relevant sales leaflet and then puts them back in the envelope, before handing it over to you."
There Google,fixed the analogy.

Re: Will they still be around next year?
"Lync, Microsoft’s enterprise-focused communications suite brought its parent company $1 billion in revenue during its 2013 fiscal year....Lync grew 30% in the fiscal fourth quarter,"
"Office 365 is currently generating revenue at a run rate of $1.5 billion per year at the end of Microsoft’s fiscal fourth quarter, up 50% from the number quoted at the end of the company’s fiscal third quarter"
I'd love to own a company "that's up to it's neck in crap" with figures like those.
Re: XP end-of-life
For me at least, 2013 is the year of Linux-on-the-desktop....
Yippeee, what about the other 10,000 in your business...Oh wait.
Re: In addition to Steam it's also Linux
"fully supports more devices than any other device ever," - Really? Supports more than windows?
"The requirement to log into a Microsoft online account to even fracking install it. " - Errr, show me one OS that you need to do that?
"Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky and all of the other $100B/yr parasitic " - I take it you haven't looked at Android store lately
Ah rants, we love them, even when wildly inaccurate.
I do like how...
...this one guys pet project became "We did this, we achived that, we used that...."
Ah management glory hunting.
If you goes wrong, you did it; if it goes right, we did it.

Re: A fascinating insight into other cultures ...
Knowing how BCC works, they are likely to dish out Win2000 at £200 a copy (using 150 staff to do so).
Hint for those that don't know, they are only just starting to roll out wheelie bins, a few decades after the surrounding shire counties.
Re: Speaking as an MS.. fan.. well long term user
or fail to point out that installing this may obliterate all the data on their machines and those photos they don't have backed up will be lost forever.
After all they are targeting the less computer literate folk here.

"it's nice to be able to simultaneously have a discussion about technology and language with people who have intelligence in both."
I think you've been reading a different set of comments than I have been of late.
but they don't seem interested in buying manufacturers per se
well if you exclude semi-conductor makers, computer makers and flash memory makers.
" a card is swiped through the handheld device and a PIN entered - just as any customer would in a restaurant or shop."
Not in the UK.
If they are swiping my card, I want to know why.

Re: No need for revolution
"When was the last time Apple described anything as revolutionary at an iPhone launch?"
Phone 5s customers have access to the revolutionary App Store
Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store
Apple has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store
So I make that a few days ago.
To be fair it seems they do stick in pretty much every press release.
and on and on and on and on and......
Of course they are a threat....
...it's harder for GCHQ / NSA to get access to them.
After all what could go wrong, they restricted them before....
some headlines over the last year.
Vodafone raises PAYG call and text charges
O2 increases roaming rates outside EU
No more tethering in T-Mobile’s Full Monty
Orange increases business contract prices
All that will happen is they will shaft us some other way.
Re: Buying in Virtual Windows Desktops is dangerous then
It's actually been like this for some time, I was told over a year ago to re-skin server 2008 if I wanted to use VDI
Have to agree, about once a month by us, some townie goes flying off a corner, and ends up some way from the exit point. Indeed about 6 months ago, there was a similar incident where the drive was not found for several hours because they had gone off the road flown threw the air, done a hundered metres across a ploughed field and into a ditch, but because of the weather, and the lack of visibility, there was no sign of the car, so it was presumed a car had hit the fence, then simply backed up and drove off.
I wasn't until the light of day and some horse riders with a higher vantage point, was the car discovered. The driver was ok(ish) but it does highlight how this can happen.
Half arsed story...
...you may want to actually go to BT's website before putting such drivel.
Note 2gb is for Infinity1 or less, over that it's 50gb.
So article should read.
If you have a lower package with BT you get 2gb, higher ones 50gb.
Not so headline worthy.
Bloody hell I've defended BT twice in a year, time to go and chip the ice of hell's front gate.
It's Windows 8...without the decent touch screen support...
The problem is...
they are are right, they are fighting Al-Q, so choose which shitty side you want to be on.
Bit like choosing the Mujahideen in Afghanistan over Russia, or favouring Iraq over Iran.
