The Return of BSOD: Does ANYONE trust Microsoft patches?

Rberns

One would expect that a professional organisation would create an automated roll back procedure prior to issuing any new software. That's simply good practice.

Microsoft Azure goes TITSUP (Total Inability To Support Usual Performance)

Re: Count on it.

"The upshot is: you must calculate the value of your data and not rely on third parties to get things right."

So one needs to implement an on premise data centre to backup the cloud?

Whoops, my cloud's just gone titsup. Now what?

Rberns

So I need an on premise standby to cater for when the cloud, which saves me from on premise data centre, fails?

We need to talk about SPEAKERS: Sorry, 'audiophiles', only IT will break the sound barrier

Rberns

What about the environment in which the sound is being played via a loudspeaker?

Is it indoors or outdoors?

If indoors, what is the shape of the room and what materials make up the walls, floor and ceiling?

Sounds recorded for transmission, or sounds transmitted, are designed for a particular environment and deviation for this expected environment will sure cause the perceived sound to deviate from the result intended by the compiler?

In fact I believe that given reasonably well designed equipment, environment could well be a greater influence than the equipment.

Facebook wants to LISTEN IN on the songs and vids playing in YOUR living room

Rberns

Who will the record companies sue for illegal public broadcasting?

Who will pay for the end user bandwidth stolen by transmission of the illegal bandwidth?

Will a browsing session have to confirm access by FB for each session?

Win 8 man Sinofsky's 'retirement' deal: $14m shares, oath of silence

Rberns

Please can someone explain what would be broken were Win 8 to have a Start Menu accessible via an icon on the bottom left of the desktop and start screens? If it's only aesthetics then make the button display optional.

Re: DAFT

Let sleeping Apps lie?

Apss don't have a natural way of being shut down. Right click produces no response and there are no close buttons. Apparently Microsoft feels that the apps should simply be left sleeping.

With all their files locked ...

And then what about apps that have a limited number of concurrent logins?

I guess Win8 isn't destined for the business market. I just cannot see any corporate, even Microsoft, rolling this out as it stands.

I probably should have guessed that when I saw metro. Imagine a someone capturing a 200 page document from a touch screen, or running Development Studio via a touch screen.
