Toshiba, Fujitsu and Vaio may be about to merge laptop ops

ben_myers

A combination of like

Toshiba = crap

Vaio = crap

Fujitsu = well, sturdy well made crap.

All three are complete horror shows to maintain. Godawful to disassemble/reassemble. You can't get spares for them. And you can't get repair manuals. I guess they don't want anybody to fix them.

By comparison, Lenovo (and previously IBM), Dell and HP (dragged kicking and screaming by public pressure) make repair manuals easy to download from their web site. Spare parts are readily available for all three. HP laptops are still somewhat of a pain in the ass to tear down, and so are some Dells.

And then there is Acer. As far as I am concerned, they might as well merge their Acer, Gateway and eMachine crap with the other three. Except they are Taiwanese. Maybe they could build a facility on the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, neutral territory. Disputed, too.

Apparently we have to give customers the warm fuzzies ... How the heck do we do that?

ben_myers

It's how you handle the customer

Treat customers with respect, and you'll get respect. Treat them like crap or somebody you can walk all over, and they will hate you. Microsoft is a perfect case study of the latter.

Microsoft motto

The Microsoft motto is "Screw the customer, screw the end-user, screw the distributor, screw IHVs, screw them all." Or to put it differently, whatever the occasion, Microsoft says take it or leave it after its first, last and best final offer. Looking at the world that way, what's new here?

Recall: Bring out yer dead and over-heating Microsoft Surface Pro power cords

ben_myers

Re: SW company?

True. But mice and keyboards are much simpler than a computer with all of its accoutrements. Take a laptop-tablet and you have a product 1000x more complicated to engineer and build than a tower or desktop computer.

Re: Are "electronic" components involved in the failure?

YES! Blame Microsoft for not setting decent standards for all the parts that make up a Surface Pro, and making sure that subcontractors meet the standards. But this is a SOFTWARE company still, despite the successes of the XBox and Microsoft-branded mice, and software companies rarely have the necessary know-how to be in the hardware business.

Big reader? Toshiba tweaks endurance, wrings out low-write SSD

ben_myers

A cheap crappy product

Toshiba's posturing here reminds me of the sorry Quantum BigFoot drives. Quantum moved to a new process for sputtering magnetic media onto drive platter material. The results were below mediocre in terms of reliability. So Quantum built 5.25" IDE drives using the crummy platters. The reasoning was that the surface area of a 5.25" drive was over 2.5x of a 3.5" drive, so the added area would compensate for all the bad spots on the drive media. Quantum even conned Compaq into using the Bigfoot. What a mistake that was. Very high rate of failure.

You know what will happen with the cheaper and less durable Toshiba SSDs. People will rationalize buying them on lower price, and deploy them in heavy use environments, where they will fail all too soon. And Toshiba will get another black mark alongside its awful laptops and perhaps more awful laptop drives.

Toshiba is in deep doo-doo as a company.

Microsoft herds biz users to Windows 10 by denying support for Win 7 and 8 on new CPUs

ben_myers

Carrot & Stick?

Microsoft sure knows where to stick the carrot, asking everyone to bend over in unison. They've arrived at the perfect strategy to drive people away from Windows, Bing and all their cloud crap. But let's see how the world reacts. Unfortunately, there are a lot of corporate sheep who bought into "You can't go wrong with Microsoft", a serious absence of critical thinking, no different than the IBM-Think of (OMG, was it?) 50 years ago.

Sad thing is that Windows 10 is quite OK, once Microsoft surveillance and ads are shut off.

Finally, it's a large steaming pile of horse manure to say that drivers from Windows 7 won't work with Windows 10 and vice versa. I'll bet some school of hackers figures out how to make those Windows 10 work with Windows 7. If not, it will become yet another lame excuse to make perfectly good hardware obsolete. No surprise here. Microsoft always screws up the driver model to make it easy for IHV's to render hardware obsolete. And, THAT, is what keeps the Wintel computer industry alive in this age of people already using alternatives like tablets, phablets, smartphones, and Apple i-stuff.

Come in Internet Explorers, your time is up. Or not. Up to you

ben_myers

Re: The Tying of IE to the OS

Microsoft embedded IE deeply into the Windows XP operating system, rather than sandboxing it, in response to the US DOJ and EU anti-trust actions against Microsoft for not giving the Netscape, Opera and any other browsers a fair chance to compete. Microsoft was thus able to say with a straight metaphoric face to technology-phobic judges and regulators that its browser was truly a part of the operating system, as it became.

Microsoft further peed in all of our soup (popular Slavic metaphor) by taking Sun's Java, integrating it into IE, BUT co-opting Java by changing it to suit its own megalomaniacal desires for world domination.

We all paid for this foolish mistake, because it made XP far more vulnerable to outside intrusions than otherwise.

Microsoft peed in our soup some more by force-feeding the Microsoft IE development way down the throats of gullible corporate web developers. I'm sure that along the way, there were some close talks with deaf-dumb-and-blind technology-wise corporate bigwigs, taking a page from IBM's FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) book. Y'know you can't go wrong with IBM (back in the dark ages) or Microsoft. So now major financial, airline and other large institutions are totally screwed, left with legacy code that will never ever run with Edge or IE 11 in a thousand years.

What tangled webs Microsoft weaves, ensnaring us all, as well as itself. Then they complain that nobody is moving quickly enough to the bright and shiny Edge.

Who will buy our darn DRAM? Micron smacked in wallet again

Stifel MD Aaron Rakers? Is he a medical doctor like presidential wannabe Ben Carson? Oh, he's the Managing Director. Why should I care about Stifel?

Gee, I wonder if there is some sort of relation between the two? Are Micron officials drinking their own kool-aid, predicting that their business will recover? They sure are.

Intel completes epic $16.7bn Altera swallow, fills self with vitamin IoT

ben_myers

I can tell the difference between Core i3, i5, and i7

i7 is for those who need lots and lots of computing power, like photo and movie editing, database crunching, etc. The power user. Or gamers! A quad-core or better Xeon does the trick here, too.

i5 is for people who are less demanding than the power user, but who still need to be productive with a computer.

i3 is your basic business processor.

Intel confused us all at the outset with insufficient differentiation between i5 and i7, but they seem to have fixed that.

"dump ailing PC market"?

Ailing? Well, the PC market is hardly dormant, but ailing is a stretch. For Intel, all those Xeon, i3, i5, i7, Pentium and Celeron CPUs generate billions of revenue which cannot be ignored. It's just that the revenue is not growing, but declining slowly. Foreseeable, actually. Tablets and smartphones have something to do with it. Microsoft's total screwup with Windows 8 sure did hurt the entire personal computer biz. And altho Windows 10 has some nice features (easier install and update, occupies less disk space than any Windows since Vista), it is still easy to look at Windows 10 with a jaundiced eye as spyware that wants to surveil everyone and feed them ads and sell all the Microsoft cloud crap.

Until there is some sort of monumental paradigm shift in how we all do our computing, corporations, enterprises, government agencies and consumers alike will replace their desktop and laptop computers with new ones now and again. Ka-ching! More revenue for Intel, selling processor chips AND motherboard chipsets. Not ailing, but not booming like it once did.

Indefinite Growth is a Ponzi Scheme

It's not just the investment industry. Economists, too, keep braying about how important growth is. Growth in everything. Growth in population. Growth in revenue. Growth forever and ever is nothing more than a very big Ponzi scheme. Except that in the original Ponzi schemes, people lose only money. In the growth Ponzi scheme, people lose lives whenever the finite limits of some resource are reached, whether that resource is water, oil, food, electricity, or some other widely consumed commodity.

Surface Pro 4: Will you go the F**K to SLEEP?

ben_myers

Windows 7, 8, 10 all cause sleep apnea or worse

For a number of months now, I have dealt with numerous owners of laptops who complain that their computer is dead. Not dead. It is comatose, a state undocumented by Microsoft and caused by atrociously bad power management software. Also caused by Microsoft wanting all of us to put our laptops to sleep instead of powering down completely. I have now found two causes of comatose. The obvious one is you puts your lappie to sleep, the battery runs down to zero, and plugging in the power adapter then pressing the on-off button repeatedly does no good. The less obvious one happens when Windows is the middle of an update and you put the computer to sleep. Either ones corrupts the CMOS, rendering the computer into a brick. Microsoft needs to expend far more effort on its power management. Yes, there is a solution in the meantime. The EASY solution is to power the darn thing OFF, no sleep!

Scandal-hit Toshiba cutting 7,000 jobs, heads for $4.5bn loss

ben_myers

Close or sell off Toshiba PC and hard drive divisions

Toshiba might as well cut its losses now and either close or sell off its personal computer (mostly laptop) and hard drive divisions. Toshiba laptops are poorly made from cheap materials and difficult to repair. Unlike HPaq, Lenovo and Dell, Toshiba does not put any useful info on its web site, especially repair and maintenance info. Spare parts are difficult to find. Why would anyone buy a Toshiba laptop? Damned if I know. Toshiba laptop drives have possibly the worst reliability in the industry. Why would someone buy one? Because that self-same buyer is Toshiba, needing drives for its awful laptops.

The Itanium forecasts

Yes, the Itanium forecasts were idiotic. IDC simply disregarded what mildly sane computer veterans have come to understand after all these years. It's not the hardware that sells. It's what you can do with the damned computer that really counts. In a (now modern) word, APPS.

HP backed Itanium as its hope of providing some continuity with its proprietary workstations and servers. Nope! Bad idea. Ditto, DEC Alpha, another proprietary wannabe, for the same reason.

Why do people pay these analyst whores?

Well, apparently the true nature of the analyst whore business is not too clear? Here is how it works: You pay the analyst whore a lot of money and explain what the conclusion of the "study" should be. Then the analyst whore finds some numbers, statistics and trends that lead to the conclusion desired by the company paying the whore. It's that simple.

So in the referenced PC World article, MICROSOFT paid IDC for the report. In the most recent report, my educated guess would say that one of Apple, Google, Samsung, or Xaomi paid for the wonderful analysis culminating in the low Windows Phone market share.

And, of course, an IDC spokesperson will say that new information came to light between the two reports.

Add to the good. Add to the bad. And somewhere in the middle...

Add to the good, Windows 98. It covered over the warts in Windows 95, and arguably could have been called Windows 95.1, or maybe Windows 95D.

Add to the good, Windows 2000. Plain Jane, before Microsoft tarted up the user interface successively with XP, Vista-vomit, 7, 8-vomit, and 8.1. The very first useful Microsoft product designed to work without DOS. Rock-solid.

Add to the bad, Windows 8. Who in their right mind got the idea to cobble together a touch-screen user interface when desktop users depend on keyboards and mice, and not a touch-screen computer was in sight? Then Microsoft blames Dell, HPaq, Lenovo and the rest for not designing, building and selling a computer platypus that would work adroitly with either touch or keyboard/mouse.

Add to the neither good not bad, but somewhere in the middle, Windows 95. It was good because it was ground-breaking 32-bit software and it kinda-sorta worked. It was bad because USB was notoriously unreliable and it was full of bugs and quirks finally fixed by Windows 98.

Puhleeze! Let's do a complete job of both roasting and praising Micro$oft!

Judge bins Apple Store end-of-shift shakedown lawsuit

ben_myers

How about if Apple provides employees with lockers?

How about if Apple provides employees with lockers (and combination locks), placed outside the area where employees would be searched? Then the employees could store their personal belongings safely, making any search upon exit from the store quick and easy. After all, safety of ones own personal belongings is important, just like theft of precious Apple trinkets is.

A modicum of common sense applied by both parties, Apple and the help, would have defused this lawsuit. Of course, the Apple argument might be that it could not afford the space for employee lockers in the high rent districts where Apple has its stores. Horse manure! Can't have it both ways.

MINI-computers ????

Why would the author purloin the word "mini-computer", which has a long-standing meaning of a computer smaller than the mainframe dinosaurs that once roamed the planet? To quote Wikipedia, the most handy on-line reference: "A minicomputer, or colloquially mini, is a class of smaller computers that developed in the mid-1960s and sold for much less than mainframe and mid-size computers from IBM and its direct competitors."

Methinks that author Thompson has not been around computers for very long.

Re: I beg your pardon?

Never had the bad luck to own an Amstrad, but Acer produces pretty awful laptops. Acer Veriton mini-towers are pretty nice. Then Acer has the stupidity to continue to sell its boxes under the more poorly regarded eMachines, showing its total lapse of good judgement. If anything, eMachines ranks down there with Amstrad, the U.S. Packard-Bell, and numerous other brands now out of existence.

And someone has the lack of common sense to identify Acer as an important Windows OEM? Holy crap!

Price of Win 10 to OEMs is negligible

For any Windows OEM considering a higher end luxury product like the Surface Book, the tribute extracted by Microsoft for a Windows 10 license is negligible compared to the cost of all the hardware that goes into a fondleslab with keyboard.

Were I a major supplier of laptops (Lenovo, Dell, HPaq), I would not think one picosecond of the Surface Book as competition. I would simply design and manufacture one myself, with superior product quality at a selling price at least 1/3 lower.

Still the best and most reliable piece of Microsoft hardware I have ever had is my Microsoft OS/2 coffee cup, handed out before they pulled the rug out from IBM in the operating system race. The OS/2 cup has served me well almost every day. It is certifiably defect-free.

Second most reliable Microsoft hardware is my Microsoft optical mouse with USB cable.

For the rest of the Microsoft hardware kit, I would not give a plugged nickel, a sou, a yuan or a penny.

Windows 10 blamed (partly) for stalled PC sales recovery

Too true. How many consumers have been burned by past efforts of Microsoft to over-hype new operating systems? And this one turns out to be the most invasive of privacy of all, even worse than the previous champ, Windows 8. Sensible people have gotten wise by now. But I predict an uptick in the sale of new computers after a few months, and even more war stories of either failed or extremely difficult Windows 10 upgrades.

Acer honourary chairman Shih would 'welcome' takeover bid

Shih wants to leave Acer behind on a positive note, and not see it wither away to nothing. Unfortunately, it's difficult to imagine why a buyer would want to buy the hodge-podge of Acer, Gateway and eMachines brands and product lines cobbled together by Acer to grow market share. There's not a lot of design quality in the Acer builds. They are not especially stylish, and certainly not innovative. All I can see is someone buying it all for $US 1.00 per share, selling off all assets (finished goods and parts), and closing the doors. And maybe $1/share is even too much. I've got it! Sell it to me lock stock and barrel for $1 total, and I'll make sense out the remains, making a few bucks, too.

Same with Windows 8.1

Set up a couple of systems with Windows 8.1 for clients. Went through the usual Windows update-reboot-repeat cycle. Clicked once to do the last set of 8.1 updates and, lo, one system said it was downloading Windows 10. What? Could not stop it once started. Had to go back to a known good restore point and, of course, redo the updates again. Then I looked at the list of available updates. No Win 10 update. Oh, good! Then I looked at the so-called Optional Updates and found that the black-hearted bastards at Microsoft had checked off the "Optional" Windows 10 update for me. I promptly unchecked it, hid the update, then found the Ignorance-base, er, KnowledgeBase number for the update that triggers Windows 10 appearing as an optional update. Removed that update, and hid it, too. I really do not want either client to call me complaining that their laptops were now running Windows 10.

Now we all know why so many millions of Windows 10 updates have been downloaded and installed in the last 10 days. Microsoft is forcing it on people.

HP slaps dress code on R&D geeks: Bin that T-shirt, put on this tie

ben_myers

Why look like a complete slob?

Although some will pillory dress codes for engineering grunts, there are some limits as to what is or is not acceptable dress. Dirty clothes? NO! Torn clothes? Nyet? Not even cutoff shorts. T-shirts? Not really a good idea. Shorts? OK in warm weather, else forget about them. Jeans? No problem.

An engineering grunt making a presentation to some corporate suits? Well, where I once worked in marketing, I had my several power suits and Italian dress shoes that made me look like one of them. You want instant respect from the suits? Dress like one of them. Ties that reveal your quirky personality or peccadillos are optional. Never ever had a problem dealing with corporate execs or military brass when dressed well.

But some engineers are slow learners when it comes to dress and other social graces. And these guys make enough money that they can afford to spend a few pence on clothing.

Microsoft to Windows 10 consumers: You'll get updates LIKE IT or NOT

ben_myers

Re: no matter what MS force on us

I see nothing in the Windows license du jour that guarantees that all Windows 10 updates will be defect free, or at least not cause any failures or regression in software behavior. And no penalties for Microsoft implied when an update causes a system not to run. (All the more reason to not have any version of Windows installed in your auto. The bastards could download an update as you're rolling down the motorway and crash the vehicle, giving new meaning to BSOD.) I'll probably experiment with Windows 10 in a few months with a non-critical system that will do me no real harm if it fails. Right now, I am looking at Linux alternatives for myself, a difficult balancing act because I get paid to fix Windows systems and software.

Imation's CEO races to exit door, grabs $4.8m golden goodbye

ben_myers

I once worked for...

I once worked for a fellow who seemed to have substance abuse. The substance was the company cash, with lavish company parties and probably other stuff I did not know about. He was a hands-off executive. Come to him with a problem to discuss and maybe solve, and he would dismiss you, telling you to go work it out with your colleague, the source of the intractable problem. After a few years of this, he moved on to a smaller company, got it acquired, walked off with big paycheck. Then another company. ibid. Then an even bigger name three-letter computer company. Same result. A well-compensated serial killer of companies. What an act!

Windows 7 and 8.1 market share surge, XP falls behind OS X

Re: The way Nadella's Microsoft is going..

If Microsoft were smart (a dubious proposition, given past history), device drivers that work on Win 7 or Win 8 will also work with Win 10. But that would mean a device driver model that remains unchanged (Gee, like Linux!). But it seems that there is always some device driver tweak that renders your trusty {printer, scanner, all-in-one, web cam, other} device inoperative with the new release. Why? So the hardware manufacturers can sell you a replacement for something that works perfectly. Fix it when it's not broken, they say.

Back in the earlier pre-Windows day, I worked for a company that pretended to make a product that would interchange office documents among all the various office products around, while promising complete fidelity to the original structure, fonts and layout. This proved impossible to achieve.

LibreOffice is in the same bind, chasing whatever "innovations" Microsoft adds to its latest shiny new Office. The LibreOffice team deserves extraordinary credit for what they have achieved, and it is no surprise when some Microsoft document isn't exactly compatible with LibreOffice or vice versa. Microsoft always has the upper hand in these sorts of tussles, until customers get pissed off.
