I make no judgements on the type of audience or even Farage himself - I'm just pointing out that he is likely to alienate more prospective applicants than he will attract.
You could probably increase applications by removing the Farage paragraph.

Fixed that for you.
Then I expect the poster is from the future since nobody knows what changes these patch releases will make and nobody will know until a little while before they are released.
If he is indeed from the future then I apologize for my sarcasm. If not, he should maybe stop complaining about things that haven't even happened yet.
there isn't going to be a subscription model.
Honestly, this is becoming boring. No subscription model. It's patches, service packs and Windows Update.
I am quite amused by the way the prospect is always yelled most loudly by those who take a pride in having nothing to do with Windows anyway presumably in the hope of frightening some gullible idiots into following their lead. This has the obvious benefit that they could then have a bigger market share and thus not have to hope nobody mentions it when they tell you that Blackberry and Windows Phone are useless and crap and evil because they have no market share.
It might take the edge off all that shilling for Chromebooks.
You don't need any revisions at all. Don't upgrade! Upgrades are evil and they mean change and change is always bad. There are no such things as beneficial patches or zero-day flaws or security updates or stability updates. None of those actually exist.
Disable Windows Update. Switch off Windows Defender. Uninstall your AV. Switch off your firewall.
Never update. Never patch. Never upgrade. Because you don't need to because you are just so much BETTER than that!
But if it sounds good, that's okay, right?
I'll do that, too.
Short version (as most of us know) is that EE + Village == "No signal".

And some have no souls to begin with.
I could see this being popular with the kind of idiot employer who buys endless horrible HP boxes. Although I note that the default version is supplied with linux, so maybe not.
> Microsoft paid sites to incorporate incompatibilities into their pages
And yes, business had to pay for Netscape buy not for IE do corporates coded for IE. Not rocket surgery and why Netscape lost. Also it was shit.
Oh come on. Netscape lost because it was a) much more expensive than "free" and b) it became increasingly shit as the iterations went on. Communicator was dire.
Had the Korean government bothered to support Mozilla when it arrived, they wouldn't be in this hole.
But not to citizens.
I think they might overestimating that risk.
Anyone prepared to tolerate EE's shitty service should be able to swallow BT's equally shitty service.
> Microsoft is allowed to steal (excuse me, use underhanded tricks) to get stuff from others
Perhaps you were thinking of one of Google's many content-grabs?
The DOJ estimates that the business data, code and games the group pilfered from their targets added up to between $100m and $200m.
How did they come to this conclusion? The data was copied, not stolen. None of the companies involved lost anything. Nothing this group did cost those companies anything - one could even argue that they got free pen testing.
So where is this monetary figure coming from?
Valve use linux. They got hacked too.
and this confiscation order aims to literally make him pay for what he has done," continued DS Azad. "The money will go back into policing and the criminal justice system, helping us continue to put people like Oshodi before the courts."
So it goes to the police. Not the woman he stole it from, then.
As opposed to your Google-think? Advertise a lie often enough and it'll become popular?
Reported for repost of the same old lies.
Yes, the Bing toolbar sent your search queries to Bing. Just as the Google toolbar sends your search queries to Google.
Go away, "Bob".
Not in this build, as far as I can see, although there are clues that this will be an option. But if you're in the UK you don't get Cortana (yet) anyway.
All the "this is not the browser we're looking for" crowd might consider waiting until it's out of alpha-preview before making that call. Oh wait, MS product, of course they won't.
I'll probably stick with Firefox out of habit anyway.
> Only if it's in car bombs, though.
That's true, tractor bombs are fine.
Bear in mind you can be arrested if you use red diesel.
Not at all. If you don't want to serve somebody, don't.
Just don't say "because you're queer". It's really very simple.
This law, however, is pretty much encouraging the local Westboro Baptists to hang up banners declaring "WE DON'T SERVE NO FILTHY FAGGOTS" over their shops and if you can't see the problem with that, the problem may well be you.
> "For we live not under the Law, but under grace"..
So why do you keep invoking this law that you don't follow?
> You seem quite happy to foist your views on Matt.
I think there's a sizeable difference between somebody writing down their beliefs in a form you don't have to read and somebody making their beliefs into the law.
Otherwise you're doing quite well. But it's a religion, not a pigeon.
> I'll believe that a corporation is a person when it can be drafted or imprisoned. I have never seen a corporation praying in a church, synagogue or a mosque, or being baptized, circumcised. They do not get to have religions.
or perhaps you have no idea what you're talking about.
There goes about 80% of the profit on my new *.sideways and *.backwards TLDs.
> I don't know why you think that Google should write Windows Phone apps.
I don't. However, when they don't write them and MS write them instead and then Google disbarr the MS app from their APIs, something is going on. Did MS's app "break the terms of service"? Yes, because it did not include Youtube ads because Google refused to allow MS access to their ad API.
Not that you ever admit it, but this did actually happen with the Youtube app. Twice.
> The idea of identical code working on all platforms has been tried so often and just doesn't work. Pick the example of your choice, HTML and the web? Java? CP/M? Unix?
But this is about three (or four, counting the XBone) platforms that MS have absolute control over.
That hasn't been done before.
upvote for nostalgia.
(truncation stopped with WP7).
because that's working so well for Blackberry?
And forget about Android apps. Google won't even supply a WP version of Youtube, let alone allow MS to use their app store.
That NFC ring for opening your front door looks handy. Especially when carrying all the shopping.
> ith Windows 95 they included access to the (original) MSN which was a closed network only for Windows 95 users. To get access to the internet the later !Plus Pack was required (or 3rd party networking).
Really? I don't remember anything being locked down (if you could remember a URL).
Then again, I was a Navigator user at the time. On Slowlaris.
Thank you for the link to John Rabe. Fascinating. And rather sad.
> everyone will call them the same thing and try to buy them in the same place
I doubt that that Windows Store software is stupid enough to allow W10 apps to be bought and downloaded on Win8.x
They might call them the same thing but they won't be buying them unless they can run them.
Tim's wrong on that one anyway. The two staples were bread and pottage, pottage being "whatever you've got boiled in a pot until you can eat it. With bread". Similarity in word to the French "potage" is absolutely intentional.
STOP DOING THAT
> feeding people for under a buck a day per head isn't exactly rocket science
That's true. It's economics.
Specifically, the only way you can reliably manage it in current Western culture is via economies of scale. A factory-kitchen feeding 5000 kids and distributing meals to schools will probably do so for under $1/day by exploiting those economies of scale. However, you don't need to be Jamie Oliver to realize that the food in question is never going to be exactly great. Or nutritious. Or sustaining.
Could i - personally - feed myself for less than £1/day? For a week? Sure. A few rabbit snares, fishing with worms (it's not cheating when you're starving), maybe 5p for a handful of raisins to take a couple of pheasants with.... none of these are an option if you live somewhere urban (unless you enjoy the taste of fox or cat or you decide bin-diving outside Tesco is allowed). Almost none of these are an option for kids.
And don't pretend you do it, either. Not without a freezer and fridge at least. Seriously man, I'm with Tim on this one. "Raising awareness" is almost always bullshit and often actively counter-productive but this challenge - raise a few quid and actually start to get an idea of how the other half lives - cannot be a bad thing. Why do you have to scorn even this? Isn't sneering at every single new piece of technology that arrives enough for you? Who pissed in your cornflakes? And did you still count them toward your $1.25/day?
> After all, that's something I can never loose...
See me after class.
> Google's ethical principles
can't. stop. laughing.
> ..yet the majority of CM users first action is installing the Google software that so offends you!
It doesn't offend me, it is what it is. But Cyanogen have stated that they want to build a wholly open source Android distro that doesn't rely on Google which makes some sense because it's no longer possible to build a wholly open source Android distro that does rely on Google.
Does PlusNet (for example) count as "BT Broadband" for the definition of who's a customer?
