Came for a proper el reg comment bashing
Re: see nothing worthwhile on windows 10 here
Might as well dust off your XP box as well then, you know since it turns on and doesn't do that transparency magic in the UI.
Tbf I read El Reg while on the phone since it is usually more interesting than whatever problem my user has claimed to not cause.
Re: Oh Please! This is worse than 3D TV
you must be real fun at parties. At least MS is trying something.
Re: Error in the translation..
And corn, lots of corn. Do not forget the post apocalyptic city if Gary. But yes you are not missing anything.
i got O365 for free when I bought Office 2013 pro using my companies (massive) discount. It turns out since I am in school, and Office for android was release not long after, I have really taken advantage of the cloudy features of Office. Since I do most of my schoolwork in Excel, for reasons that are not relevant here, it makes it easy to do the work at home and then have it checked and graded on my phone at school. In short I like was MS is doing with Office and I wish them the best of luck.
Re: I put it on a desktop system
They addressed that when 9929 was released. They know that devices without batteries are showing batteries with 0% charge. I would imagine that will be addressed in the next update....hopefully
Re: I'm free! No, you're an idiot
I am cautiously optimistic about their future model for windows. Adopting a wait and see etc
Re: Go ask New Jersey
This was more in the vain of the early 90's when NJ gave Verizon buckets of cash to wire the state and 20 years later (last year) when they tried to get out of the agreement because it was hard to wire the state.
Go ask New Jersey
how well that worked for them, you know, the cash giveaway to Verizon
Re: Raspberry Pi
Would be nice but LAUSD is looking for a more drop in and be done with it portable solution. Also something that garners favor with the vendors I'm sure.
I was annoyed when I first heard about the ipad deployment since it was essentially no-bid, 2nd when in the trial run the students "hacked" the devices by deleting the MDM profiles so they could browse facebook and install apps.

I kindly request
that Russia and Saudi Arabia fuck off and build their own internet if they are so concerned. Better yet those are not the a fore mentioned countries should cut their peering links till R and SA think better about their proposals.
Re: Windows 10
MS's recent numbers seem to contradict your comment. Are their devices achieving the success that Apple devices receive? No. Is there growth in their lines? Yes. As a frequent reader of many tech news sites (El Reg, you are still my fav), I see even techcrunch, who constantly has their olfactory organ squarely up Apples' posterior, even praising MS for what they are doing with their various hardware lines. In short MS is selling hardware and shocks of shocks someone is actually buying.
TBF I do want a Surface 3.
Echoing start menu
That trick they pulled with the surface 3 where it switches between tablet and desktop depending on the presence of a keyboard, that is all I wanted. Win 8 has been really solid for me but the touch UI goes unused even though I have a touchscreen laptop. At least I know my important keyboard shortcuts so its largely a non-issue for me.
Checking in from the west
In the city of El Segundo just outside of Los Angeles. Also screw Comcast...you know, for relevance.
Re: Anyone Running it in Virtualbox?
use windows 8.1, not generic x64
So you clicked express settings during the setup rather than customize and turning it all off. And there is an option to create a local account only.
You sir, yes you...I owe you one beer!
I left the yellow bastards for T-mo and their actually functioning network. Looks like it is time for me to write several more opposition letters to the FCC, DoJ, elected representatives, etc
this is why i love this game
even though the doctrine used was designed to crash the server. Where else can you have fights like this.
Just like some cars...
Are not designed to be repaired but there are design considerations taken for assembling. Repairs are a dealership/ mechanic problem
Re: Contradictory reports
Remember that Big Red is just one carrier in one country where Apple offerings are relatively more robust in the marketplace. There is a larger market that must be taken into consideration
You can take my TIE fighter disc from my cold dead hands
Debian cause I don't have issues with it. Even got the Nvidia drivers to install correctly once I got the dependencies installed. Same with VMware. Got it running in dual boot on my desktop, running as a daily driver on my 5 yo laptop and netbook. Very happy with it so far.
Re: Open source
Really trying to shoehorn the open sauce in this article
troll troll harder
They all have issues. How about we use an updated paper map and common sense when navigating to places.
Re: more than apps
Chrome syncs my pages from the desktop to desktop to laptop to phone and to tablet. Pictures are auto sync'd to G+ ( yes I do use it). You should know the kindle app. And news is done with pulse, currents, and flipboard which of course sync respectively between devices and come with handy tablet friendly UI's. And of course this is all syncing between a Xoom, gnex, and N4.
And my favorite part.
"well I sign into my mac and all my stuff downloads and syncs" as a recent convert to Apple told me recently. My response being "If I sign into gmail then all my stuff is there too, no synching required." Their response: "...".
I know I'm tied to El Goog but at least I know what they are doing with my data.
Being an Android user I am finding that there are a larger quantity of higher quality apps available that I am willing to part with a few dollars over. Also to be fair discover-ability is bad on the play store but the "People who looked at this also viewed...." list becoming more relevant...at least to my untrained eye.
Re: Step 1. Acquire mech.
step 4: charge entry into said lot under penalty of 6000 BB's wrecking the paint on your new car. You know from the comfort of office with that 3g connection.
Re: Up the power
I believe there are a number of railroads here in the USA that send or have sent signaling data for block and moving block signaling through the tracks.
Re: Online store
Indeed that would be great but they spun that business off years ago. I have to wonder why though considering I have my fathers HP financial calc from the 70's and it is fabulous to this day even though it takes batteries
As a person who supports the abortion that is Lotus Notes. I want to know why it has to fight with Adobe Acrobat with calling the user32.dll and then crashing....and deleting mail files.....causing calls to come my general direction.
Re: US version
Slight correction, it went on sale a little after 8:30 AM PST and the ordering system has been up and more times than a prostitute at a frat party.
Re: I really really really...
its a silly time killer of a game. It just happens to be one of the really good ones. It went viral a few years ago ( I sentence myself to 30 lashings for using viral ) when it gained critical mass and also had a movie tie in created for it.
@anon 8:58 and JimmyPage
whew, I'm glad Im not the only one with those issues. I thought it was caused by me running chrome off a thumbdrive and the USB access times were poo. Yes Google please fix the 2 errors they said
Re: Never mind Samsung...
The OEM's could release timely updates if they would stop screwing with the UI and underlying components that they have to upgrade for each release.
Burying the power lines.
well I guess the answer comes down to money and the will to do it. Dunno about the UK but the LADWP is (what they tell us) broke.
Re: Girly->Bloke colour conversion
Ahh yes just like Adult swim used to do(possibly still does, i don't have cable) for their schedule info
Saw no retina
will not recommend
Looks like it is time to extend my epeen
*switches tab to newegg
I had this issue as well
But my solution, much to my chagrin, was to limit myself to one box small box for my computer detritus. I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend which has some limited storage options. Funny enough she of course did not get rid of nearly the amount of stuff I did. It would appear that I had held onto every computer, router, switch, and associated cable I had procured over the last decade. I drive a pickup truck and it filled the bed taking this stuff to the recycler sans hard drives of course. Now I am down to:
1 HP laptop (read: desktop replacement with built in battery backup)
1 spare body for said HP laptop
1 media PC
assorted android phones
1 very tightly packed rubbermaid container holding my cables, mounting hardware for the desktop, 10 pack of floppy disks, various backup CD-ROMs, and a spare router and ethernet cables.
I work near there
I am going to try to see it after work and snap some photos if I can

Re: Give me my
But if you produce your own power where will the power companies get money to supply you with power?
Tried Ubuntu around 8.10
And wasn't too fond of it then. I'm still preferential to Slackware and Debian. Slackware cause I am never done learning and Debian for when I broke slackware but still need to get stuff done. I do like Debian and Gnome 2 has grown on me especially since the abortion that is KDE 4 was released.
Re: Apple users still win...
I gave it a shot with my brothers iphone trying to direct us to a cigar shop in downtown Los Angeles. We were a mile and a half away as the crow flies.
Attempt 1: put it in an alleyway 2 blocks away
Attempt 2: using the turn by turn nav attempted to send us the wrong way on a one way....twice
Attempt 3: (using a co-workers 4s) flyover locked up maps, then he tried to impress me with the siri tricks of "open the pod bays doors", etc, etc)
In short I'm quite happy with my Nexus phone and its choco factory maps.
Indeed a title
I will be taking a long smoke break around noon time to watch the shuttle land since my office is about a mile south of LAX. A co-work of mine will be joining me since he lived in W. Palm Beach FL which is about 2-300 miles south of the Kennedy Space center and would sit on his roof as a teenager to watch the night launches.
I know this comment fits a "cool story bro" but how can I say we will never see these amazing machines fly again.
I heard this described on the news
They were talking about using separate apps for each store which is already a non-starter for me. I have google wallet and my cards which if they do not accept those then I won't be buying from them
