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.
Re: They can't snoop it you don't use the device
Trouble is have a beer or five and first four will soon be forgotten.
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.
Re: Kids these days.......
Well I guess the problem is that you'd have to walk or get out of a car or some kind of exercise, but if you can buy them on line they are just delivered. Far more convenient.
Re: Not that I buy into this US-led paranoia about Huawei kit...
Its called Thatcherism.
Re: Never ask governments to pick winners
No its an article written with the benefit of hindsight. Interesting though.
Re: Here is a plan...
Alternatively move your businesses out of the USA. They can afford it. Move to India!! Its cheap!! And welcoming!!
Is spooks the right description? Kids playing games and getting paid to do it.
Also in 2007 the British Economy was booming whereas at the moment it is a flat/depressed.
Re: Is this a story?
Try being a postman for a month. See how you feel.
Why not ask India?
Re: How else is the NHS supposed to do this?
Funny people worried about who has access to their data when GCHQ and the NSA are allowed to access all our on line data. (Health data included)
See the Guardian today..
All Microsoft need to do is make it possible to upgrade from Win XP to Win 7/8. At the moment it is clean install time!
Re: Excuse me India
The Indians don't want the "aid", but Dave insists. Can't you come out with something positive or are you jealous that for £45 million quid India has managed to get a probe(not a firework) into Earth orbit and hopefully in a year's time into orbit with Mars.
They also managed to get the project from the drawing board to launch in 16 months. They could teach our MOD a thing or two about project management.
Shift your Servers
Well Mr Schmidt what you going to do about it?
Try moving your company out of the USA.
Bling is the colour
I think the 5C is for the "ladies market" but in China like many asian countries the girls prefer bling.
Good for India. They are showing some principal.
Re: Re-nationalise BT...
Remedy is not a private company. Remedy describes itself as a "hybrid company".
Remedy is and always has been a government agency.
The selling of shares was thatcherism. The Government always pulls Remedy's strings..... and grabs its data.
It starts with a B and sorta rhymes with graffiti
You do mean Remedy.
Blaming scruffy students for a fall in revenue. Bigoted and pathetic.
Virgin must think the sun shines out their orifices.
Nothing To Worry About
People have just got weather neurotic. Calm down..
All the scientists predictions so far are wrong. This is the main problem. If the scientists can't predict climate change accurately what hope is there for the rest of us.
Worse still the UK is the number one target for on line fraud yet there is no effective action by the authorities with all their kit to stop it.
Priorities are wrong.
I wonder if there is any evidence that children say under 10 actually view hard core porn. Would not suprise me if there isn't.
This piece of legislation is being proposed to satisfy the "dirty minds" of British adults.
No other country I am aware of needs to "protect their children" like this.
Re: Sourceforge & Classic Shell to the rescue!
Your absolutely right. One OS two interfaces don't work.
Re: Committee says "We're always the last to know!"
Since OFCOM was invented parliament has taken no interest in the internet, BT as its all too complicated for them.
Re: A disgrace!
This article is more about the management of yahoo and that is why BT are giving them the chop.
They failed to apply a wordpress patch for 8 months and loads of spammers exploited Yahoo mail through this wordpress bug.
Taking 8 months to apply an important patch in most IT departments would be unacceptable but for a company providing millions of e-mail accounts this is clearly unacceptable.
GCHQ - Just
Shut the place down.... What a waste of money. Don't do anything useful.... Self-justifying organization GCHQ !!
The Register is getting more like a front for the MOD - blightty -boffins..
