Microsoft refuses to nip 'Windows 9' unzip lip slip

Start Menu

What is it with people and the start menu. I use Win7 and almost never use it. Any apps I use are either on the taskbar (frequently used ones) or less frequent ones on the desktop. Once in a blue moon ones are on the start menu.

We've just been doing a Win8 build for a tablet rollout and I haven't missed it at all (and the only Metro apps we're using in that are the camera and Reader)

I was quite lucky....

...despite us about to roll out over nearly 1500 tablets they run full 8.1 so I couldn't get any further than 2.1(?). Still need a mobile device strategy for them though

BBC hacks – tweet the crap out of the news, cries tech-dazzled Trust

HipposRule

BBC and Twitter

I stopped following BBC World recently when they retweeted about one tweet every 5 minutes from their correspondent covering the Pistorius trial. I was not the only one who replied saying if we wanted to know about it we'd follow the actual journalist.

UK's CASH POINTS to MISS Windows XP withdrawal date

Re: Are they running on XP Embedded ?

Surely they could go to POSReady 2009 (based on XP Embedded) that is EOL in 2019? NCR do have experience - they supply the company I work for with it.

re subscription channel

I'd happily pay a small fee to have BBC World - at least the news on it (before BBC Breakfast) is actually news and not a dressed up promotion engine for an actor's latest film/novelist's latest book/musician's latest album.

Re: Repeats...

I'm having that issue where I need things repeating - there were a couple of weeks where there were 4 simultaneous things I wanted to record at 9pm. Luckily one was repeated and 1 was available on iPlayer.

Microsoft's Windows 8.1 secrets REVEALED ... sort of

Re: Oh, and also:

Bing maps has features sorely lacking in Google - OS view for a start where you can actually work out which way a minor road goes (hint - it's in yellow) rather than having to guess in Google.

Give me the down voters

OK, I'm not a power user but I've been running 2013 for a couple of months (RTM version) and I definitely prefer it to 2010. A lot cleaner looking and some bits I've been bemoaning for years (tables in Word for example) greatly improved.
