Windows 8.1 start button appears as Microsoft's Blue wave breaks

Fuzzy Duck
Meh

except henry ford didn't say that

he said 'if i'd have asked my customers what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.'

ie. customers can't imagine something new until you show it to them. that's why the general public were lost without something familiar - the start button.

Google Chromebooks now in over 6,600 stores

Fuzzy Duck
Thumb Up

i've got one

the £229 samsung is great for basic web, email and watching stuff. yes, the screen is average but as a cheapo laptop it's great. you are, of course, tied into googles stuff but it's better than an ipad.

Apple's next OS X said to be targeted at 'power users'

Fuzzy Duck

bring back 'save as'

osx should be made for desktops and not incorporate tablet-like functions such as the dreadful idea of removing 'save as' from textedit..

Review: The ultimate Chromebook challenge

Fuzzy Duck
Thumb Up

i've got the samsung

and it's great - come on - it is what it is..great for surfing whilst sat in front of the telly. chrome os needs some tweaks but you get 100Gb of google space and its cheaper than a macbook air or ipad - and i'm a long time mac user but their prices are a joke.

Fuzzy Duck
Thumb Up

Re: LOVE THIS

agreed - had mine 4 days and loving it - and i'm a mac user. apple simply need a better value, simpler laptop and not a bloody tablet.

Virgin Media staves off cable punter seepage

Fuzzy Duck
FAIL

been with them 3 months

the tivo stuff is quite good but in 3 months we've had broadband down to 1mb for 3 days (twice), a rented film stopped halfway through and reset, box reset due to slow menus and numerous network messages on screen.....oh and the telephone call charges ARE A COMPLETE RIPOFF!

other than than it's pretty good but i will look at bt at the end of my contract.

Re: Disappointing service

we were having the slow jerky menus issue. so i turned the box off and off at the back, waited the standard minute and it was much quicker when i re-started it.....

Simply awful

What the hell is this tosh?

Gatekeeper - like windows defender then.

Fuzzy Duck
Meh

question..

doesn't RAM hardly use any energy anyway?

Samsung outs MacBook Pro lookalike laptop

Fuzzy Duck
Go

because...

steve wants you to buy all of your content, including hd, from itunes.

it's got nothing to do with blu-ray licencing.....it's also why apple are phasing out flash.

it's all part of apple's walled garden approach, which is why i've had enough of them..

Apple rumor mill predicts 'all new Mac'

Fuzzy Duck
WTF?

girl shmurl

he just has an opinion about crapple - that they are twats. just because you've all fallen for the shiny iphone does not make apple untouchable.

why can't we just stick to bashing apple like the good old days...any defence of apple should be banned on these forums or else i'll through my toast at the screen..

you are correct

worse thing they ever did was go to intel and allow windows on a mac, notice how their marketshare of pc's is flat, no matter what their figures suggest.

i've had 5 macs and would not touch another. the price and over-hype is now ridiculous....

Ridley Scott confirmed for Blade Runner pre/sequel

Fuzzy Duck
Meh

sorry, it's not that amazing....

it's great cinema, just not a great film....

yeah it looks fantastic (the cleaned up re-master) but i still think it needs 3-4 minutes chopping from the last 15 minutes.

sorry.
