ROTFL

hahaha, that's rich coming from HP considering their recent changes to support.

Wozniak: Please, whatever you do, DON'T buy me an iPad Air

WireBug

Agree with Woz

Gotta agree with Wozzie on this. I own an ipad and was considering upgrading, then i saw the specs and the price for the new devices.

The new devices do not offer the storage i want, nor are they really offering anything new for the price point... sorry Apple, but if you want to keep charging premium prices, you need to give us premium hardware.

If they at least offered a microSD slot i would reconsider, but i just don't see that happening in Apple's world.

Windows 8.1: Read this BEFORE updating - especially you, IT admins

WireBug

Not Funny!

Start Menu!?!?! I have upgraded. what they call a start menu is just a link that takes you to Metro (or whatever they call it)

If this is a joke, I am not laughing.... I use the windows key for that function.

Here's a tip:

On your task bar right click -- Tool bars -- New Tool bar

select the start menu folder located in programdata\windows\start menu

done like dinner and no 3rd party app required.

Apple debuts two-step verification for Apple IDs

WireBug

Half Baked Attempt

Half baked attempt in my opinion. IMHO they should be offering security key tokens (Key FOB?) Even Blizzard offers these. I would pay a decent price for the token... they could even offer an app for mobile phones that accomplishes the same thing... although if all you have is an iphone it gets difficult, but having the physical token option would negate that.....

Come on Apple, try harder

Windows 7 customers hit by service pack 1 install 'fatal error' flaws

WireBug
FAIL

MWAHAHAHAHA

Turn of WSUS??? For real? That comment is a little extreme. If you are using WSUS just tell it not to install the Service Pack.

When I heard W7 SP1 was coming I immediatly turned off deployment of service packs for Win 7 until I know it is not going to crash half my users PC's... thankfully I did since it appears to have a negetive impact on OEM installs....

I am astounded that you would simply tell people to turn off WSUS completely.... sheesh

Microsoft: Hotmail fix coming soon to a browser near you

Assumptions

I find it interesting that so many people assume hotmail accounts are required to use MSN. This is not true, you can create a LiveID with a GMail or any email address you want. LiveID = MSN access and any other MS site that uses Live ID's.

<Sarcasm>Hotmail is great</sarcasm>, at least for signing up to questionable sites or mailing lists... LOL I prefer my Gmail over hotmail and ISP mail any day.....

M$ Dropped the ball

I too have been suffering since the change of the VL Site. I have been using the same liveID for a few years now and after they "updated" the service I was no longer the admin.... I am the only admin at my organization.... There were also 5+ year old email contacts that didn't even exist that appeared in the user administration. I called MS to get my admin status return all I got was a case number and have been ignored for weeks now.... to top it off, the old email addresses that were listed were from our VENDOR, not our company *sighs*

*taps foot while STILL waiting for keys and a resolution*
