So, a bit like a train then?
Or it never happened
I'll wait for Windows 9
Or will it be Windows Nein?
Re: Didn't Some one say....
I got a 32G USB stick hooked into me Passat that I can control perfectly well via the steering wheel mounted knobs and buttons, including skipping around folders and songs, etc. You don't need an iThingy.

Be cheaper for MS to shell out on 2000 iPads and give them to the punters.

Root the phone and rip it out.
You don't "Use" Faecebook
You are the commodity. Advertisers are the ones 'using' Faecebook
Re: Thank you Facebook
Yes. Easy to avoid. Close Faecebook account and don't bother going there again - like most sane people.
Re: What are you doing tonight Emanuel Loertscher?
If DAB is the answer
It must have been a fucking stupid question
Re: Quote "XP is like 13 years old. Get with the 21st Century."
However, unlike Wrongdows 8.x, a modern car isn't sold with the steering wheel on the roof or the gearshift in the trunk, requiring a trip to the custom workshop to get it sorted.
Re: I've never understood the need for on-screen logos
1) doesn't compute: A watermark/ID could be buried unobtrusively in the datastream or in the image. it doesn't have to be distracting.
2) TV execs can READ?
But, but, but
a) Actually unscrew things?
b) Blow the living shit out of (in)convenient bits of scenery?

Shoudnt that be iSplode?
Re: If I was making a press release like this
Nah. I'd have released it on May 3rd. Then I could sign off with "May the fourth be with you"
Re: Ask one back
Messrs Kruger & Dunning will bear you out.
Actually, unlike your comment, it's not a knee jerk reaction; it's a conisdered opinion after giving Win8 something of a try.
I do not like it at all. Possibly with Classic Shell but, there again, why should I tonk around making it usable? I didn't have to run around customising my new car whan I bought it, just to make it possible to drive, so why should I be expected to do that with what is suposed to be a finished and polished OS?
Lets see: Windows 8. No thanks. Definitely no, thanks. No, no, no, no.
Price: no thanks
Knee deep in bullshit
Had Beaver Tail in Canada, once.
Bought it from a street stall. Jolly nice too, it was.
Only one 'merican SciFi programme was anywhere near good
and that was Third Rock - and I bet even that had some sizeable input from a brit or two
You can't polish a turd
Only roll it in glitter
I did want to try to fix the switch but it was a tricky slide arrangement with some sort of chip or transistor block or chip incorporated - outside my skills and the repair shop quoted more than I could stomach. Fortunately I was offered a second hand Dyson upright for a ridiculously cheap sum."
You do realise that Dyson do fixed price servicing including parts? Had our DC07 almost rebuilt a few years back: New motor, beater bar clutch, belt, cyclone, post motor filter, etc., for about sixty quid.
Yes, and Pot

It sure is now.

Re: The My Satis application
Shouldn't that be "Shitter and Faecebook posts"?

It did. Balmer is now just stamping on the bits
Now, Faecial recognition is another thing entirely.

You want to take pics of me for commercial purposes? £500 per picture or frame.
That's per picture or frame. I bet you are running video feeds at, say, 10-25 frames per second
I'd just like to say
Didn't understand it first time round
I'll wait for the repeat last week.
Re: Is it just me...
Certainly is the wrong command. Should be "Open Faecebook".
Alternatively "Enable Shitter".
Which makes me think about customising commands so other people won't override what you want by imitating you. Maybe
"Phasers to Stun" = power on
"Lookit the norks on that!" = take photo
""Windows 8" = Shutdown
You get the idea. Any more offerings?
"The new Ford Fiesta is more economical, more spacious" etc.
Which is about as far as the analogy goes. The new Ford Fiesta comes with a round steering wheel, not a square one. The steering wheel is mounted in front of the driver, not attached to the parcel shelf. You do not have to prod the bottom left corner of the windshield to make the instruments appear and you don't have to go to Halfords for an accessory package to change everything back to how the old Fiesta was made
Any of these laptops would be a delight with an operating system UI that wasn't the result of an intellectually challenged marketing droids wet dream.
