Microsoft’s Get Windows 10 nagware shows signs of sentience

unwarranted triumphalism

That's a nice OS you have there, Microsoft

It would be a shame if someone were to replace it with this Ubuntu install I just happen to have burnt to a DVD.

Maybe that's what MS want, though.

I bet JF is glad all these armchair statisticians / electrical supply / datacentre experts are here to give him the benefit of their wisdom after the fact and tell him what he did wrong.

Tesla recalls every single Model S car in seatbelt safety probe

CPS fined £200k over theft of laptops holding 'sensitive interviews'

unwarranted triumphalism

What in the actual s--- was going on here?

During my work with a private company associated with the criminal justice system I have been assured that if I allow so much as 1 bit of data to escape I will be executed on the spot.

But the CPS allow this to happen and get a slap?

Goodbye public sector clients, I've had it with you. The next offer for private-sector only work will be accepted without hesitation.

Volkswagen enlarges emissions scandal probe: 'Millions' more cars may have cheated

unwarranted triumphalism

And suddenly, for some unknown reason, motorists are concerned about pollution...?

Maybe they should sue.

Because of all that pollution they're creating.

Which must be someone else's fault.

Give law enforcement the benefit of the doubt?

Why would you have done that when they broke the law by questioning a juvenile without an adult being present?

So £32 a month.

Nice story...

Except that no one has actually made any such claim. Better luck with the audiophile-bashing next time.

I know that you'll (probably) get something right eventually, even if it's just by chance.

MYSTERY RADIO SIGNAL picked up from BEYOND our GALAXY

unwarranted triumphalism

So they've just resorted to falsifying data now?

Sad, but somewhat predictable. No wonder there is no longer any interest in the wasteful and pointless space programme.

Anonymous vows to avenge Charlie Hebdo massacre by blitzing jihadist sites

This is going well...

Just the usual mud-slinging I see. No real attempt at any substantive debate.

I don't see how this could be true

I've been assured, repeatedly, by readers of The Register, that not only are gamers all mature responsible adults, but that there is no religion-bashing going on here.

So obviously there must be some kind of misunderstanding.

Re: Att unwarranted triumphalism

No, I built a PC with more performance than that thing for half the price Apple are wanting.

I don't care about resolution - who's going to use 5K-whatever-it-is anyway?

Re: Really?

Irrelevant. I don't care about the resolution.

And there's no point claiming it's a usable display if you can't connect any other source to it.

I see from the specs that it has less performance for the PC I built 6 months ago for half the money.

Well done Apple.

'good quality sound output'

The only method I have found for getting *that* from an iDevice is to use an external DAC to bypass the headphone output that Apple may have spent as much 1p on.
