Just can't see the appeal of "the cloud".
None of the companies I've worked for since "the cloud" became the buzzword-de-jour have used it. Makes me wonder who does?
Anyone I've heard of?
. . . CASH!

First rule of IT security - don't give your details out because someone asks you to just to view some online document....
'Agile' is just an anagram of 'Chaos'
I think he meant - "Google's quest for more data"
Yes - but only < 1K was available was available for programming with - the OS used the rest.
I had one of these before the Electron came out - spent hours and hours on it programming games with the tiny < 1K RAM
30 years later I still spend hours and hours on my Alienware PC using the latest programming languages as part of my job.
Wish I'd kept the Atom though :(
From the BBC website:
The "One Microsoft" strategy would seek to bring together diverse areas such as Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox, Surface, Office 365 and others.
Win8 was an attempt to "consolidate" PC and touch screen tablets - its failed.
Now he's going to try the same thing across everything else?
Balmer - time to clear some space in your garage.
They said that they were going to check up on me every few years to see if I had TV equipment - but I've not heard from them since.
But I agree with you about their presumption that everyone MUST have a TV. The license renewal letter used to say "the license fee MUST be paid" and IIRC offered no procedure to state that you no longer need a license. I had to go onto the website to do that and it was difficult to find even then.
I'm pretty much like you - everything I want to watch I have on DVD. I used to occasionally watch things like QI on the iPlayer or 4oD but now hardly bother at all.
Not having a TV license means I don't automatically throw myself onto a sofa for a few hours each night and watch stuff just because I can't think of anything better to do.
If anything, I'd say since I ditched the TV I've made much better use of my spare time and learned lots more about subjects I'm actually interested in.
I am 100% happy.
That would be two thumbs down - but my other hand is busy...

Does that mean you're a wierdo if you don't go online? That you're a social misfit if you don't spend time uploading pointless photos of yourself for everyone to see? Or "liking" stuff? (WTF is all that Liking stuff anyway?)
7 million lucky people whose lives aren't cluttered with online crap.
. . . I'd have left behind a single white glove with the Microsoft logo on it

Has an over-infalted sense of self-importance if you ask me....

Unleash an iFart-style app on the Windows App Store.
Hours of fun... just swiping and tooting, swiping and tooting.
I mean, what else can you do with one?
An app which sucks stuff from social networks - summarizes it - spews it back onto social networks.
The boy is indeed a genius.
Loud, clumsy, in-your-face - and when you look at it you've got know idea how it got there or what it's for?
