Good point.

Still both religions are pretty similar and have many of the same references, unfortunately people prefer to argue /kill over the differences..

Re: "..stopped retailers and PC makers from selling .."

"only sell what we want, not what the customer wants."

No, you buy what you *think* you NEED, not what you think you want.

It's called marketing, you may think you are unaffected by it, but you are. A good marketing person makes you think YOU came up with the idea of NEEDING it, not someone else wanting you to have it.

I much prefer Win8.1 over XP & 7 now, it has some annoying things, but now I find 7 more annoying than 8.

Waste of time. People have been complying about these pics since the new site launch, but they don't seem to care.

They don't seem to have the ability to go "you know what, we don't actually need a picture, so we won't add one"

Heck, even Marriott have listened to their consumers.

Re: I'd try Linux mobile

I agree, switch from a "decent" Samsung Android to a cheap Win8.1 and I'm amazed at the difference I've rebooted it once since I've had it. I NEVER had to kill an app, don't even know how to. Unlike the Samsung, where it was almost the norm to do and a reboot was required at least once a week.

The "basic" apps are way better than the stock android ones Here being MASSIVELY better than Google maps (Google WHY do you think I can park on a motorway?), Xbox Music is better than the stock android one, the People app is better than anything I've found on either Android or iOS, and the navigation and settings just seem so more sensible.

BUT, the big downside is the lack of 3rd party apps such as shopping, utility bills and so on.

Re: We will try!

"they are the only party that doesn't seem completely bonkers and out of touch!"

Apart from the fact you could, without any doubt apply the following:

Petrol & Diesel will go up.

Gas and Electric will go up.

We will have blackouts due to "investment" in "green" energy over gas, coal and nuclear power.

More congestion charges will come into force throughout the country.

Increased council tax bill as we subsidise more empty buses and trains going to places people don't want to go to....

And on and on...

Before the usual MS bashing....

...remember they were one of the biggest supporters of Do Not Track header and the first to add it as a default setting in the web browser, so the bit about Bing is a little muted.

A certain other search engine provider and web maker was the biggest opponent and the last one to ad it to their browser, so we can guess who will be the last to implement anything like this.

Now of course this sort of thing could be designed to the competition, but in the whole it's good.
