WTF?

A side note...

..who is the Dana Bass in the tweet?

Is she important? Looks like she may be from Bloomberg, but does this random tweet actually add anything?

Is the fact it got re-tweeted a whole 1 time a good thing?

Or is it simply padding and pointless?

So....

...what do they have left?

Yahoo home page is the Daily Star of the internet, where the "news" seems to consist of what Kim Karadashian had for lunch or what happened on yesterdays Big Brother. The comment section is inhabited by those to stupid to read the Daily Mail or the Sun.

Flickr is good, but falling in popularity due to Facebook.

Yahoo mail, just constantly wants you to install IE, even if you are using IE, mainly because the 50% of the screen appears to render the adverts better.

Then there is errrrr....

It simply now the gutter press end of the market.

Re: nice one

You may be surprised to learn Reader and Flash are not their only products.

Of course moving everything to the Cloud and subscription models may be a deadly move for them.

"Extreme complexity"? This from people who have just reversed engineered both of them. Modest, huh?"

Read up on it, not just Kaspersky, but other AV vendors as well and see how complex it is. Then comment.

Re: So let me get this right...

So that's ok then is it? We don't think many will push out the update, so we won't bother.

This is a multi-billion pound business, not some back street shop. Heck they can even claim it as a cost to get their massive profits back to zero.

What a shit attitude.

Re: Technical or financial

but if Google don't supply the update, how are the carriers supposed to push it out?

Google's issue 100%. If they release the code and then the carriers don't push it out, then it's the carriers issue.

Re: Post Office Telecom, for your landlines and your mobiles

Maybe they should rename the Post office to say some less specific to avoid confusion, say the General Post Office, then maybe with a specific section for phones, a good patriotic name, say British Telecom.

I know it's a bit of a long winded, so just rebrand it to BT and maybe get the public onside by selling a few shares.

Now they could set up their own networks of mobile cells, maybe call it CellNet, or just give on that idea, and just buy out an existing carrier, say EE?

I love it,...

...it's going to be amazing, no really...

The kettle will turn on because I've just pulled up on the drive. 30 seconds later it will blow up because there is no water in it.

My fridge will have ordered me a £6 bottle of milk, because it knew I was running, low so ordered one + delivery costs. Now I have two, because I picked on up on my way home.

The washing machine will be finishing it's 2hr 45min cycle; granted it was empty because it doesn't load itself.

The oven will be cooking nothing at 220c because it's Sunday and it knows I like a good Sunday Roast, but it doesn't know I'm going round a friends house because I didn't post it on Facebook.

Never mind, I have 3000 hours of TV to watch when I get back because I once commented on Facebook that I've only ever seen one episode of "Friends" and people have said it's amazeballs, so it's kindly downloaded the entire back catalogue.

Now apparently I've got to do some work, as Google have told me that's what I should be doing right now.
