Apple fanbois SCREAM as update BRICKS their Macbook Airs

Lord Lien

One of the few things Apple do is let you replace hardware if its there fuck-up! Few years back I had a MAC Book Pro that was out of warranty & due to a known fault with that model they replaced it, even tho it was well over 6 months past the 1 year warranty. Only thing I will say was the issue did not manifest until I upgraded from 10.6 to 10.8 if memory serves me right.

Thinking about it HP/Compaq have also done the same thing before for me. Replaced hardware even tho it was out of warranty but it was a known fault.

As WinXP death looms, Microsoft releases its operating system SOURCE CODE for free

Lord Lien

Re: Xtree.....

Please do your homework on what Windows 1 was...... it was a file manager for DOS & not a OS.

Unless your just about to rock my world.... so please go ahead, I'm all ears so to speak.

Two in five Brits cough up for CryptoLocker ransomware's demands

Lord Lien

@ Amorous Cowherder

I've been doing it 20 years & people still store work in the recycle bin. I had an "incident" last week which went to HR. So if you can't educate against people STILL doing this how can you educate them into very basic security?

Apple Mac Pro: It's a death star, not a nappy bin, OK?

Lord Lien

Re: |'m not quite sure I get it

"An iMac looks very swish and neat on the receptionist's desk - but for the power users I'm not quite sure how they're expected to justify the cost." I have a few power users (doing design, basic video editing & all manor of technical stuff) on IMAC's. So long as you don't have to be mobile, they are quite a good alternative to Mac Pro's with a screen, saves on desk space…. well underneath the desks anyway :)

Re: did he damage the roof of the building

"1 I think I can fly - drugs etc" /facepalm…. such a cliché statement.

To quote Bill Hicks " 'Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy.' What a dick! Fuck him, he’s an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn’t he take off on the ground first?"

Nice way to get some FREE press....

.. for MGK. Do wonder who told him to be a "bad boy gangsta thug". Did he work that out himself, or did the artist management team behind him tell him to do it?

"You will be the most 'biatchin' gansta' ever if you do it"

"But I don't want too"

"Do it or we pull your contract! You need some press coverage"

"Yes, boss"

IT & women......

To any female reg reader who's thinking of taking a job (or starting a career) in IT, its not all doom & gloom out their. "Lady Lien" works for a real nice company. She is treated as equal to anyone else at her skill level. So don't be put off applying for for a job or taking a qualification.

Only bad thing about "Lady Lien" working in IT..... its hard to hide the "Grumble" ;)

I could not find anything in the article about the daughter being the hacker or passing on the information. So its safe to assume she might not have know what was going on, not everyone is tech savvy.
