Synology bakes word processor, groupware, into its NAS OS

Nor is there a proxy server

You can hack in a proxy server but they don't supply one. Probably one of the most useful features they ignore.

New leaked 'Windows 8 screenshot': The Start Menu strikes back

AlexS

You can organsise stuff on the start menu as well.

Regardless I see the start screen as just a larger more prominent start menu. It works fine. I think those who don't like it haven't spent time customizing it to their requirements. You can take off Metro tiles and replace it with tiles that link to normal windows apps.

I think the real issue is some people hate metro.

Well Start screen <> metro, it just defaults to displaying metro apps. If you don't like it change it!

I've got no issues with 8.1.1

YouTube in shock indie music nuke: We all feel a little less worthy today

At the end of the day it's the band members that lose out.

Even established acts are feeling the pinch what chance is it for newcomers. You have far more chance winning the lottery than making a living even for a week.... even if you are really really good....

Earth cops first asteroid impact of 2014

Alien

Dah Dah Daaaah!!!

No one would have believed that in the beginning of the 21st century that human affairs where being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinized as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.

Few man even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet across the gulf of space minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes and slowly and surely they drew there plans against us...

Re: Wrong way around

Yup three thumbs down from idiots who think issue should be solved by opinion poll rather than what is the reality. Go ahead I'm after your down thumbs...

"Yes the sun is going to crash into the earth"

I disagree

"But it is coming towards us, straight towards us"

that is your perception....

Wrong way around

If a recommend fix is to use IE compatibility mode, then actually it's almost certainly Dynamics that is broken not IE. I suspect workaround code for the IE10 was in place, and now that needs removal for IE11.

No pain no gain..

Apple iOS 7 makes some users literally SICK. As in puking, not upset

AlexS

Re: HUH???????

@Matt So I fixed half the problem [1]... Sorry you are not happy that I didn't fix the other half [2]. Clearly you are not satisfied (do you think I'm Apple support?) and for some reason you think I cannot read.... funny that... Guess you are an all or nothing type of guy....

Did you not read the comment before you last wrote something....

"Yup I solved HALF the problem"

Thankyou for clarifying though in several words and phrases....

iOS 7 SPANKS Samsung's Android in user-experience rating

Re: Only one Android?

@Tim99

Er you miss the point, they "tested" two iOS operating systems and only one Android. That is not fair.

AlexS

They looked at two Apple phone OS's. Therefore they should have at least looked at two Android OS's, i.e. In addition the generic version that comes with Google Nexus 4 (without Samsung garbage thrown on top).

Flawed.
