Samsung sold desktops?
Well that I didn't know.
Not that I'd notice, I build my own anyway, ready made desktops are for fools and businesses.
Re: Notice the design of the ring
I'll have you know that I clean my ring at least twice a year.
We aren't all disgusting you know.
Shh! You'e ruining the anti-Windows wank-fest.
Re: Put the start menu properly back
Yeah, that makes sense...
Boo hoo, my UI changed, better jump ship to an OS with an even more alien UI.
Somebody is still using it.
I worked in a factory in 2004 that was still using Windows for Workgroups and Novell Netware throughout the entire business. There was a single XP machine for accessing the internet.
I don't know about the rest of you
But I pirate stuff because I'm cheap and it's easy.
Less spent on DVDs is more spent on beer.
Microsoft are forced to shoehorn old features into new versions because some people are so frightened of change.
Windows 8 doesn't need a start button. Boot to desktop will shave a microsecond off my wait though.
Re: Leet or not...
I think it's more equivalent to a couple of chavs walking through your open back gate and sticking a post-it to your door advising you to invest in a lock.
Porn sites sort of do that though... a handful of them have started releasing their own apps, possibly because of the lack of Flash in newer devices.
Want to wank on the go? Get an Android phone, then get our app!
Re: MS take on version numbering?
More importantly... who cares?
Recommending Windows 8 over Windows 7 is just common sense.
Windows 8 is faster and has more nifty features, there's just no point in getting Windows 7 if you have the choice.
I don't get what the problem is...
I boot into Windows 8, check my mail (the only Metro app I use) then it's off to the desktop for me.
I only see the start screen when I want to launch an app that isn't pinned to my taskbar.
People like that should be hanged.
4 inches of snow, lol ...an hour... oh. Shit.
In the classic sense, yes. The kid hacked out some crappy code for a quick and dirty solution to a problem he was having regarding other people's accounts and his lack of access to their phat loot.
Re: I would imagine...
No... by that logic you should be allowed to attempt to rob a bank before deciding whether or not to do business there.
Shops aren't storing your sensitive information. You could attempt to steal customers credit card info from a shop prior to deciding on whether to shop there though, or just use cash.
You guys are nuts
Windows 8 is great, I preferred the old UI but the new one works fine if you stop crying long enough to try it.
I didn't have any issues
Switching to Skype was painless as hell. I prefer MSN though, Skype is too... chunky, and there don't seem to be OS alternatives to its client.
They do make low-end crap, I usually buy Lenovo laptops for home use and never the high-end models since that would be overkill for my needs.
Despite the price-tag the laptops are always rock solid.
I hate Apple and everything they do as much as the next guy but selling a new iPad on to some other sucker could net you the money for a Nexus 10 and a load of beer.
Re: Anyone else..?
Take all the keys out, wash them in the kitchen sink, give the keyboard body a good scrub too (remove the electronics first) and you can dry it with a towel and a hair dryer, no need to let it sizzle for 2 days.
Re: Simple solution
You should get one of those Microsoft Intellimouse mice, I've had mine for years, it's gone yellow now even though it was white, I've spilled beer in it, knocked it off the desk, slammed it in frustration, dropped it in a cup of tea, and I'm pretty sure that one of my rats tried to have sex with it once. Still works.
The only downside is that the resolution is fairly low so it makes only a mediocre gaming mouse.
Re: Quite Exciting
I normally use linux on my laptop but if the Surface Pro is in my price range when it comes to upgrading... well goodbye linux laptop.
That would explain why I had to slum it at ISOHunt yesterday.
I like this new sticker thing
I hope they stick to it. My neighbour on the left is very trustworthy but also very elderly, I'd hate for him to be bothered by my missed parcels. My neighbour on the right is hardly ever in so there's no point trying to deliver my stuff there.
Of course, the real answer for most people is to get your stuff delivered to you at work.
As much as I love to bash Apple they can't really be blamed here.
What kind of idiot parent buys a ~£500 phone for a child and then links it to their bank account...
Re: Still not getting it, are you Microsoft?
So install a VNC variant like you would if you had a linux based media box.
