Pronounced "Micro sod it"?
Yet we're all being pushed inexorably towards it.
So quality browsers are ok - it's just IE that's affected?
When I see one of these mythical "Windows Phones" in the wild I'll be sure to check it out. Trouble is, at just over 2% market share that means I'd have to stare at almost 50 smartphone users before catching sight of one.
You can tell how irrelevant it is by looking at anyone advertising an app - from the sofa pushers on telly during the soap opera breaks to the supermarkets - they invariably just have the Android and iOS logos by the "get our app" tagline.
Leopards can't change their spots. Even when their rapidly evaporating own comedy efforts have gone, their Android patent extortion will go down in history as the only meaningful contribution they've ever made to the mobile industry.
@Mark 85 Steady on now...
Facebook is the worlds people directory.
Linked In is the worlds business directory.
Google+ is for everyone else.
Tut tut tutitty tut.
Exactly. Get Vint Cerf in whilst you're at it - if it wasn't for him, none of this would have happened.
Memo to Uber: The horse bolted because you left the door open.
Oh for the good old days of J2ME.
Others sat out the war safe and sound in jail in Blighty, whilst their fellow nationals risked their lives for them.
What a shame. Such a nice guy.
Mind you, his father was a coward, his son a drug pusher and his brother a sex offender. Now his fiddle during the great corruption exposure is all forgotton, it's time he was left alone - after all, what harm has he done to anybody?
A high profile Google employee said that to me at a conf last year - off the record in a bar - but I thought it fascinating to see what these big data companies thought of each others antics. I somehow managed to resist any smart ass quips about it dodging the tumbleweeds of Google+ on its way there.
Hey you never know, perhaps Skype and Hangouts will become one? Hmm, thought not.
You'd not ever see the black part that way. The matter is being sucked in all round it in 3 dimensions. If you were anywhere safe in its line of sight all the matter in front of you would obscure your view of the hole itself, in fact probably making it a bright light as it all heats up on its way to oblivion.
You mean it's still automatically adjusting itself to the shape of your trousers each time you pocket it?
So Samsungs Android sales start to tank, just as microsoft start thrashing about with their Loonier phones and whining once again about how the next version of windows will solve mankinds problems.
In other words, they really, really need someone else to make the smartphone hardware their garbage can ruin ...
Android ICS has already been ported to the Pi, but as it turned out it just about fit but with no room for apps and clunky performance. Both are addressed handsomely with this new model. Can't comment on how iOS or Windows Mobile works on it since in this IOT crazy world their owners wisely stuck to their closed source model...
"Hi! I see you're tying to view a standards compliant webpage any quality browser released in the last 5 years has no trouble with, but you're using instead a microsoft browser. If you insist on doing this, you now have 2 choices - you can either see it quickly, but with totally broken alignment and horribly chosen fonts, or slowly with that the other way round."
If it can be used for the sole purpose IE is, that is to download Chrome on a new Windows install, it'll do fine.
Correct Dave. You see, microsoft are so loved they actually need a reason for people to loath them just to get real.
Congrats and get this down yer neck lad ----------------------------------------->
They are wriggling really hard now though.
Lumbered with an appless turkeyphone? There's an ugly rumour they will try to fix that by leeching even more from Android than they already do with their extortion racket. Jeepers, if that isn't recognition their own mobile comedy efforts are over I don't know what is.
Hey, and thanks to the pair of you who actually did write a native windows mobile app but you needn't have bothered, actually.
That's the real issue. No-one is going to use the new extensions - web users won't recognize them as addresses and they are all stupid money anyway. Since all the decent .com domains were bough up 15 years ago, and even the vowel-dropping variants 10 years ago, unless you really want xsqgglyfy.com or whatever, the only real business is waiting up to a year for renewal time and seeing how much you'd save transferring over.
its time for every other registrar on the planet to invest in new underwear.
I'd like to know if it's compatible with WinRT :-)
@Jim 59 And so it begins.
Apple invented the smartphone.
Microsoft invented the computer.
Google invented the internet.
And we all lived happily ever after in whatever la la land we're told to.
You still talking about Win 8? If they are prepared to ditch everything they know, your reasoning applies to any of the modern Linux distros.
@Dave steady on now. Even his colleagues from the Church group etc are all on Win 7. Should they ditch theirs too? You know how long it takes for them to get used to it?
Agreed, unless the person requesting support had spent a lifetime helping you. By telling them to avoid Win 8, I am helping him - its just the nasty way ms have stacked things up so those who don't know about the emperors new clothes tell him otherwise.
