That's because this is a full operating system ISO for developers to test and develop on - the in-place upgrade is still being held back until 18th October.
As it says in the article and on every other bit of coverage on the Interweb.
I'll 'watch out for bikers' the moment they start watching out for me. Round here a couple of the roads I regularly use are regarded as test tracks by bikers out from Manchester, and I've lost count of the number of times I've met some moron coming round a blind corner on my side of the road.
Like text-drivers and phone-drivers, I really don't mind if they want to kill themselves, but if they take me out as well I'll be extremely peeved ...

Where's the ambition?
Three films? Amateurs. That's nearly 100 pages a film. They've just made a full film of The Very Hungry Caterpillar which has only about 20 pages and very little dialogue in, and no CGI battle sequences whatsoever.
Peter Jackson is seriously underselling himself and his 'vision' - by that yardstick he should be able to screw at least 20 or 30 films out of The Hobbit.
The sooner Martin Freeman hangs up his prosthetic ears and feet and escapes back to make the third series of Sherlock the better.
Reminds me of ...

The Coach House pub next to the Town Hall in Chester is currently selling the 'Egg Roller', which is a pint of beer with a creme egg smoothied into it.
I like creme eggs, and I like beer, but the combination is revolting ...
Lord Of The Rizzzzzz
Any of the Lord Of The Rings films - over-hyped, overacted, over-long and over here.
The Return Of The King was probably the worst, jeez that could have been done in about an hour and a half less than it took; just cut out all the long lingering looks, speak the pompous dialogue at a normal speed, and only use each bit of tacky CGI battle footage once, and the whole thing would have been over in 90 minutes tops.
The fact that they reckon they need 6 hours to do The Hobbit (that's well over a minute a page!) says it all.
Several commentards have mentioned thir Samsung machines, so I just thought I'd put a word in for my Panasonic Viera.
Step 1: Cable from ethernet port on the back of the TV into the broadband router
Step 2: Watch IPTV services.
That's it - how hard was that even for a non-techie?

+1 for Brennan, -1 for the complainant
I've owned a Brennan for just under a year & it's a brilliant bit of kit - easy to use, makes your entire collection accessible, helps you rediscover all sorts of hidden gems you've forgotten about in your collection (Was listening to The Barely Works only last night - how could I have forgetten about them!).
Let's hope that Brennan only benefit from all the extra publicity, find an acceptavble wording asap, and that the complainant goes away and shhrivels up with their three Matt Munro CDs.
And yes, let's also go after Microsoft, and Apple, and Creative, and Archos, and ...
Does anyone know if this will automatically upgrade itself from a 1.x install to 2.0, or will we need to actively download & install the new version?
Can't see it on the MSE website, apologies if it's stated in big red flashing letters on the front screen ...
