Obviously WIN 10 was not ready for release. Microsoft's development culture sucks.

Ah well at least Apple produce security updates which can be installed by customers unlike the world of android where unless you buy a new phone or have a Nexus you own a security problem.
I think you must be a bit mental to want a CCTV camera at home. These things are de-humanising. Spy on yourself and let GCHQ, the police or any hacker a view of your home.
Seems Microsoft with its new CEO has learnt nothing. The culture of send it out bugs and all still remains. Some government or big company should sue Microsoft for supplying faulty goods/services. Cotowing to "Software Licenses" needs to end especially with OSs. They need to be challenged.
I'm surprised know one is getting excited over SP1 yet.
Android platform is useless for security. NSA and GCHQ must be laughing. We must remember that Google is only an advertising company.
They seemed to be more interested in making phones and watches and bloody cars for Gods sake..I recently went into an Apple reseller and was quite shocked at the pathetic looking keyboards and mice they make. Jon Ives hasn't got a clue if they are his designs. So I use a PC mouse and keyboard.
If they are not interested in computers anymore sell OS X to a company that will develop the OS and make it better. Take security more seriously.
Most users couldn't care less and the OEM's are not much better.
This Hacking team are a pain in the arse. They appear to serve no useful purpose to this planet apart from help governments spy on people and undermine IT security.
Android the "open source" OS. Samsung are amazing.
People who pay to watch TV are wasting their money. License fee, Sky subscription. Crazy.
Re: Hope this gets sorted
It would be a very good opportunity for new European search engines to develop. Block Google for say 12 months would be very good in the long term.
Re: Backup verification matters
Well it does kind of defeat the object if you have to check your recovery backup to see if it works all the time. This should only need to be done when your recovery backup is set up, not as an ongoing checking process. Otherwise why would the report say the backup was successful if it wasn't?
Many parts of the third world use Windows XP. Microsoft should stop being obstinate and continue to provide security updates for free to their operating system especially if they are concerned for a safer internet. LOL
i think Dave could do with a few lessons on IT especially encryption.
Re: So, so so pathetic
Yes. Block Google and get a UK or English company to set up its own search engine for example.
Invade and conquer.
This is the government guru who wanted us to sign on the internet using a facebook account.
Re: FFS the images on your site are getting ridiculous !!
I agree with you. They have changed the design of their sites with more graphics to make their sites easier to use with tablet or phone or finger.
WTF are traffic lights on the internet for anyway. Yet another example of things on the internet which on paper looks good but really should not.
Here is another example. http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/01/internet-attack-could-shut-down-us-gasoline-stations/
Leave the EU?
If this report is true it is probably the best reason I have seen to leave the EU. However, the sycophants in Westminster will probably sign it any way in or out of the EU.
A bit depressing.
I'm not sure Apple can be responsible for the working conditions of tin mines in Indonesia. Its not their domain. Indonesia is a sovereign nation and has its own laws.
I guess Apple and other tech companies could develop a mine in Cornwall if they really wanted to have tin produced by relatively well paid workers. Developing a tin mine does take a few years though.
One for the future Apple, Samsung, Microsoft etc.....
The internet will soon become unusable for secure transactions and communications. I think its doomed.
Seems EE have been nationalised.
Re: Excellent work
You cant tell the banks anything. They know best!!
Re: Spot on
Poor quality of life in the UK. Destroying the welfare state is not going to make it any better and probably a lot worse.
This article is rubbish.
British prudishness when it comes to sex. No sex please we're inhibited. Didn't stop that tory MP a few years ago found hanging with a tangerine in his gob... LOL
He should be sacked. Lazy sod.
Windows OS is a mess.
Microsoft invented the culture of buggy software. "Oh we'll fix that next patch time".
Windows users get excited when they hear the announcement of their new Windows OS "service pack".
I am suprised that Microsoft have not been sued out of existence as they knowingly sell faulty software.
Perhaps they should of really got rid of the NT kernel/FS after XP but they probably didn't bother because it was too expensive(sic) to develop.
This is going to make using windows phone fun! I've just blown by data allowance on yet another total re-write of my phone's OS from MS.
Windows sucks at patch day proves it again and again and again and again and again and again etc...
Goes with the territory.
Apple behaving badly
Its just underhand behaviour by Apple. Not good. Glad the reg wrote the article.
Apple should Buy Adobe
I wish Apple would buy adobe. They could intergrate it into OS X.
You do mean think of the BS.
Re: If they say yes...
You mean every time England does something. Wales and N.Ireland don't exist politically.
Why does IE have so many bugs? Why cant they fix it? Its not a new piece of software. Are Microsoft programmers crap? Perhaps the next update to IE should just uninstall it.
Uninteresting times in IT these days. 64 bit chrome browser from the worlds favorite surveillance company Google. yawn....
They should just put IE completely under the bus.
They should be prosecuted. Another day another leak by another professional IT organisation.
Re: Wait... what?
So who do you ring?
Sounds underwhelming. Lots of eye candy.
Good news. Shame there is so little descent software available for my little phone.
I dunno wimin are so thick when it comes to the internet and computers. Need a good husband to help them click the hyper links.
Some of us may be ignorant but we are not as biased as you. IP employs 7.7 million people. Your having a laugh.
Many users in Asia do not know or care. They still use and ex corporate machines are sold with XP in shops even today.
Re: The picture ..
Look like IMacs to me.
Re: Yeah sure...
GCHQ's boss just got the sack.
I wonder when the UK is going to have its political debate about GCHQ? Anyone written to their MP?
"Others have noted that perhaps GCHQ made a strategic decision not to expose its capabilities in this area."
Just too clever for their own good aren't they.
Another way to get hacked into with no benefit for the user.
