Free Windows 10 could mean the END for Microsoft and the PC biz

Re: WTF.....

I think this misconception comes from people quoting the statement as "FOR the first year" instead of "IN the first year."

That small change, along with a simmering dislike of Microsoft, is enough to make people jump to a conclusion not supported by direct quotes from the company.

Re: COULD BE LETHAL

Except that's not quite what they said and it's been a common misconception this morning.

Upgrading to Windows 10 is free IN the first 12 months after release, after which presumably such an upgrade will have a cost.

There's no indication of a subscription model for that upgrade, indeed to quote:

"This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost."

Quarter of Brits don't believe that cell towers improve phone reception

Munkeh
Facepalm

I'm not overly surprised.

I remember seeing a small community actively campaign against a new tower being located in their village, due to it's proximity to a school. They were successful and the tower was never built, however within a month the local paper ran a story in which they all complained about the rubbish mobile signal.

Tower and rubbish signal were the same network and yet they didn't connect the dots.

Huawei pitches 'first ever' 10in quad-core tablet

Munkeh
FAIL

First ever?

First ever 10.1 inch quad core android tablet? They need to do their research better...

I know they are hard to find in stock and have QC issues but I'm sure this transformer prime I'm typing this post with proves them wrong.
