Mozilla takes Windows 8-friendly Firefox out back ... two shots heard

UKHobo

A good decision

If only Mozilla had taken a more objective view on the Win8 outcome earlier in the day, say around Feb/March 2012 they could have saved themselves and everyone else involved in this folly all of that wasted effort. Some might say in response that hindsight is a wonderful thing however the feedback comments written in the consumer preview forum at that time foretell the tale of how this was going to work out.

Raspberry Pi DUMBS DOWN to target world+dog

UKHobo

I say good idea - until said newb inevtiably finds NOOBS doesn't work with their particular SD card or whatever else for some reason. At that point the newb is unfortunately confused and upset and is confronted with either getting down to nuts and bolts of getting it working (what they hoped they would avoid via noobs)..or just slinging it in the bin.

Windows 8 pricing details announced as preorders begin

"ok windows 7 is now popular due to the fact it works drivers and software works on it why would i want to upgrade to windows 8 for whats the reason apart from i dont have a touch screen monitor to use the touchscreen feature thats one reason but what does 8 offer that 7 does not"

You might want to consider breathing in between what should be separate sentences. Windows 8 is shit but IMO there's no point having a heart attack over it.

Microsoft to comply with Brussels over browser choice gaffe

UKHobo

throw the book at them - they can afford it

A measly €1.6bn fine last time and after a while they decided to play silly buggers again. We need an in-the-clear fool proof no holds barred way to bail out the Spanish + Greek + Italian + Irish + other knackered economies in the EU. I reckon a nice new whopping €10bn Microsoft EU fine should help out a bit.

Google updates Chrome Flash plugin for security, stability

UKHobo

Dear Neil,

I'm sorry but you'll have to rewrite your article replacing the now illegal trademark term "Metro" with the term "Windows 8". Did you not receive the memo? Rest assured it will read much better after you've done that; Redmond marketing has assured the board that this will remove any potential confusion in future public correspondence.

As a side note, also please be advised that for the moment it's ok to refer to Redmond as Redmond but that might change soon because we're in legal discussions about a possible infringement here with a small biscuit manufacturer in Sheffield, old England.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Balmer

Devs can't be bothered with Nokia's Windows Phone – report

Nice try but I don't see there's any incentive for a decent company like Unity to care about Windows Phone either

Defragger salesman frags HP

UKHobo

I'm so happy now

"Due to our poor communication, there’s been a great deal of unwarranted controversy generated between vendors, readers, and the media when the vendors actually AGREE that defragmenting the OS file system(s) is a good thing!"

Thanks for clearing that up for me Mr Diskeeper fraggle expert.

Mozilla outs un-Google site sign-in prototype

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

BrowserID:

"Behind the scenes, the website, your browser, and a separate verification service use crypto keys to verify your identity"

A.N.Other service:

"Outsourcing login and identity management to large providers like Facebook, Twitter, or Google is an option, but these products also come with lock-in, reliability issues, and data privacy concerns"

BrowserID looks prone to failure as much as any other external service.
