SMACK! EU set to hit Google with 'abuse of dominance' rap

Syntax Error

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?

Windows XP's market share grows AGAIN!

Syntax Error

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

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/

FURY erupts on streets of Brussels over greedy USA's data-slurping appetite

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.

Apple's DIRTY SECRET isn't that secret, or that dirty

Syntax Error

Cornish Tin?

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.....

Patch NOW! Microsoft slings emergency bug fix at Windows admins

Syntax Error

Slack

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...

Microsoft unloads monster-sized can of bug spray on Internet Explorer, again

Syntax Error

IE

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.

Silk Road 2.0 busted! At least two arrests as federal crackdown begins

Re: It's all good

"It's better to keep consumption under control than just let it explode"

Not so sure there would be the explosion you think. Amsterdam or Holland have never exploded in drug use.

Obviously medical drugs need to be controlled but they are not taken for pleasure so are outside the parameters of this debate.

Opiates should be controlled but psychoatives are not really addictive except for the mentally disturbed. People in my experience only take these types of drugs for an experimental period of time.

As for coke and meths well they should be marketed like champagne and vodka. Cocaine is very popular in the USA and certain British politicians.
