Re: Dear Mr Satya,
They probably took one look at your use of apostrophes and speech marks and decided they'd had enough.

Elop is that you?
If you buy cheap internet with a free router you're going to get a pile of shit.
Welcome to your age of conformity Facebookers.
I'm the one with the unimaginable life laughing at you from the sidelines.
I see you have no need for reading comprehension either.
I want FairySQL and Persil RegClean liquitabs now!
My father invented a technique for printing circuits like this using standard printing presses that normally print magazines, books or newspapers over 25 years ago. That is much more standard than presses that print on bottles and would have run at much higher speeds. We had test circuits on normal self adhesive paper labels. Unfortunately no tech company in the UK was interested, he tried Ferranti, Marconi and all the rest, and eventually we had to let the patents drop. :(
Sounds like an urban legend to me. No doubt that's why you posted anon.
I see Nokia feature phones still use the same crappy old UI from the 1990s.
There's a reason they're called Crapita.
That NEMA 5 Socket looks like Mr Stay Puft from Ghostbusters to me. Wtf is it for anyway?
Cloud based ERP? Maybe for HR but for manufacturing no way. I've built systems for production line use and you're lucky if you can get a network connection, internet no way. And, who wants to explain to Mr BMW that they can't produce cars and are losing millions per hour because the internet connection is down?
Please fuck off to the Daily Wail with your BBC propaganda.
Panorama ceased to be a documentary some time in the 1980s.
Having used both I actually prefer the Samsung UI to stock Android. (I know, I'm some kind of strange pervert.)
I just wish I could get rid of the bundled Samsung copies of Google apps that I never use and the 3rd party crap like Dropbox. I appreciate that a lot of other people don't mind giving Dropbox permission to access everything on their phone and send it to the NSA but I'd rather only Google was doing that for me thanks.
Unless it can tell the difference between Hobgoblin, Fusty Ferret and Black Gold what use is it?
Google back up all your contacts, calendar, etc and updates are OTA now so what is the point? I haven't had the misfortune of trying to sync an Android and PC since the early days of my original Galaxy S.
I know several Android users who don't even own a computer.
Speedball 2 was a superb game, possibly the best 2 player I've ever played. As well as the Amiga & ST there were also versions for the previous generation of home micros. I used to practice solo on my Speccy for multiplayer matches on my mate's Amiga. Good times.
Nothing has changed much in the last 30 years? Really?
So my Android tablet, Win7 gaming PC and smartphone are just the same as my Atari 2600? I think not. The rest of your post was a confused diatribe that made little sense. I can't decide if you need to lay off the pills or take more because your current dosage isn't working.
So how much content do they have in the States? I signed up for a free trial month in the UK recently and think I could watch it all in 2 - 3 months.
You're missing two important points - the Point Of Sale terminals were hacked so the attackers could get card details whether Target stored them or not and this is the USA, they don't have chip & PIN.
Hell even in a technical business and as an IT person I know that my bosses think I'm some kind of paranoid survivalist whackjob because I point out our many security failures. No one listens because they think it will never happen to them. I look forward to the day it does.
The real surefire way for Chrome users to be sure they're not being listened in on is to use Firefox. :p
I prefer OpenMYPCToTheEntireInternet.
Tbh I've never used their product but I distrust any software advertised on TV with adverts that cheesy.
Hey brogrammer go back to coding in Starbucks, we have no need for you here.
Obviously being non-GPL does not make it any less secure. What he's getting at is it means you don't have to comply with the annoying GPL rules that most businesses do not like.
At least he got it the right way round and didn't say SQLite, etc includes Open BSD for the third time!
There has never been filtering on my BT Openreach provided line and there will never be unless my ISP introduces it as a product. You are confusing the fascist retail arm of BT with the good blokes who provide the tubes.
It is very easy to avoid these filters, just don't sign up with the cheapest ISP you see on the telly.
"the Commissioner issuing public advice that a particular site is not safe for children to use"
I'm sure TB, etc will love the free advertising in Australia.
Should have upgraded to Central back when they put restrictions on the free product last year. It costs next to nothing and there is no change in service for users of LMI Central. The writing was on the wall.
I'm disappointed in the intelligence of the Reg reader who wrote in to complain. I expected all Reg readers would be capable of telling the difference between 7 days and less than 24 hours.
It would seem sensible to include a copy of the winning entry in the article rather than some vacuous comments from people other than the winner. Or a link to the original article since this is the www.
Yeah they did that in the related article last week as well. Seems someone decided to let the tea boy write articles.
EE basically say security is the customer's problem.
I can help all EE customers improve their security with my simple 4 step plan:
1. Cancel contract with EE
2. Sign up with a decent ISP instead of the cheapest you could find
I guess your disappointment at opening a bag of sweets to find it is mostly air explains your lack of a sense of humour and sarcasm failure? Try reading the reviews for 3 Wolf and Moon shirt then think about the sugar free Gummi Bears reviews again.
Hmm let me see... main work address, work support address, generic IT dept address, main home address, GMail address, Hotmail address, address for Reg comments, spam address, address for dodgy websites, gf address for when I'm buying things on her card, address for one of my mates who doesn't have a computer, unused address from mobile phone company.
I can think of 12 atm but there might be more. :o
"That server technology can undoubtedly scale far beyond the traffic Nest currently handles"
And you undoubtedly know this because? Just because a company / service has low traffic atm does not mean they are capable of handling more. A poor architecture and bad programming may not show at low traffic levels but they undoubtedly will with more traffic.
Maybe report facts rather than your bad assumptions?
"forcing anyone using a product based on Nest technology to adopt Google as a service provider (again as Android users must)."
I'd like to introduce you to this little thing called the Kindle Fire. You've probably never heard of it because they aren't very popular and are only sold by a very small niche company but it runs Android and does not require or even have Google as a service provider.
Learn to capitalise words and sentences properly and re-write your post, then I might decide to read it.
Meanwhile have a downvote for your illiterate rant.
I guess you are resolutely sticking to your guns with Windows ME, there is no need to upgrade to XP or later because they add only minor and annoying user visible changes.
WTF is that supposed to mean? There is no Metro language.
The defence lawyers should all claim unfair trial and move for dismissal.
I've no sympathy for drink drivers but the UK Police need to learn that they are not above the law.
As opposed to phones supplied by your employer who have all the enterprise security and device management add ons installed and activated. Pretty obvious if you read the next sentence.
"Glad I use Blackberry and Windows Phone....Both meet military and government security requirements"
Yeah NSA, GCHQ, etc are loving having complete access to your phone while you think it is secure.
The benefit of integrating iOS or Android would be to allow me to use my own music service and in particular apps like TuneIn Pro, rather than BMW's chosen service. I already subscribe to a music service, don't need another, and I have a number of internet radio stations I like to listen to depending on what kind of music I fancy. What I really want is a system that allows me to load whatever music service or internet radio app I want to use.
This system is like buying a car where the radio is tuned to Radio 1 and can't be changed.
As long as I know what they rename it so I can continue to tell people to avoid that bug ridden, slow pile of shite I don't care what they call it.
"a key aspect Edison lacks: a dedicated server infrastructure" - for me this is actually a selling point for the Intel device. The main reason I haven't bought an Imp yet is because it is tied into the servers of some company I don't really know who rent them from Amazon. If I made a product using Imp and Amazon have yet another cloud fart or Electric Imp go bust then I'm screwed.
A requirement to provide my own infrastructure is a feature for me!
Steam was affected for more than an hour. All weekend it was having problems and telling me it could not contact the Steam Network probably because my network was down. No it bloody wasn't.
Note to other programmers... never assume the problem must be at my end because your end could never go down, oh no.
Funny that, my Hotmail account gets absolutely zero spam and never has. Technically my Gmail account gets no spam either though I'm starting to consider the annoying constant emails from Google about YouTube and Play to be spam.
"Mind you Samsung are pretty crap at it too - two goes at 4.3 both of which are broken."
4.3 is working fine on my S3 and the missus' S4 and we've never had problems with updates on them or our old Galaxy Ss. But then if you were posting anything other than a cheap shot you would have specified a model and carrier that you were having issues with.
So amazing that Delphi has been writen in Delphi since v1 back in 1995. Nice to see MS catching up some 18 years later. One day Visual Studio may actually be feature comparable with the Delphi IDE.
I'd put the Tory party and gov websites top of the list but mumsnet would be straight after.
Because full disk encrpytion will stop this.
Oh wait, no it won't. Idiot.
