Well one simple answer
Chrome, but without Google spyware.
Am I the only one.....
that really doesn't give a shit if my fridge knows I've run out of milk, or my kettle knows to boil, as I'm 1 minute down the road?
Serioulsy, why bother living? You have fake friends on facebook, google telling you what to buy, your fridge telling you run out of cake, your watch telling you your a fat lazy bastard becuase you haven't left your desk for 5 minutes (and you've eaten all that cake) and your too busy flirting with a non-existant girlfriend on your phone to form a real relationship with another human being.
Seriously, if this is where we are heading, just shove us in a box, knock us out and put us on a drip for the next 50 years, it will save on food (which would of been bought from Tesco, as they know we are low on baked beans and they want us to eat them on the 3rd Thursday of each month)
In part I agree.
From what i can see it blocks all content, even up to date, except flash.
So wht not a happy medium, block it and say "this content is running on out of date software, click here to....Upgrade, Block, Allow"
Then when it up to date, it doesn't block it, or says "Allow this time / Always alllow if up to date"
Re: DNT is already dead, sadly
Fucking hell. MS are against tracking (in principle), implement it as default, are on the pro side and you STILL slag them off. How about bashing the o-so-lovely Google.
Give them a bashing where it's due, but ffs this petty minded bollocks is really boring.
My Guess, the evil side....

You do know the HS2 is the Heathrow Extension don't you? And most don't actually want it!
Re: And the royal mail
To be fair, this Pinterest thing doesn't seem to be on strike at least once a year and bend your photos through the letterbox.
Re: Does the PM think that Zuckerberg himself is posting each individual video?
The issue is not them posting them, it is Facebooks reluctance to take them down.
But does it include...
POETS day for senior management?
The files don't need to be encrypted....
...sticking it on a floppy is protection enough. After all, how do you read from one of those things again? I tried putting it in my "combo" drive and it made a horrible noise as I slammed the drawer shut.
Re: Did I understand correctly?
Not quite, it's open to the WLAN as well, which means someone, in theory, can brute force your Wireless and redirect stuff, for example, changing you DNS settings.
I'd rate it a low to medium risk as you need to actually be somewhere near the kit and have time to do it, without attracting attention to yourself.
Re: Metro on a server!
In the end I opened up a dos cli and (with help from google) did "shutdown /r".
Fuck me, how old are you 12?
You admin a server and you don't even know the most basic of commands.
Now people, you see why Windows server admins get such a bad rep.
Re: Touch interface on a server OS?
Got to love the downvotes by the Linx tards. Oddly it always seems to be pegged at 4 within a few minutes of posting a pro windows / correct answer.

" 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.
..If you check this option, any Twitter user that follows you will be able to send you a DM, regardless of whether you decide to follow them back."
And in 6 months when no-one selects it, it will be changed to:
..If you do not check this option, any Twitter user that follows you will be able to send you a DM, regardless of whether you decide to follow them back.
Again...another tech that bores me...
...so I predict it will be a huge success.
...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.

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: News from the trenches
Never mind, when you become independant, you will no longer need BRITISH telecom or rely on London....
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.
"No wonder the girlfriends husband thought I was coming on to him......."
Publicly admitting an affair there are we?
Re: Off the shelf laptops
Well if you don't like it, here's an idea, don't fucking buy it.

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.
