Reporting for duty chief.
And when those IDC estimates are wrong they will say...

Looks like it passed the sniff test...
In my house we have an XBOX 360 and a Wii U. The 360 is gathering dust. The U gets used by everyone.
I keep rooting for Moller to finally get some decent funding. Lots of decent ideas and lots of basic engineering has been done. Their new rotary engine design looks brilliant!
Chocolate + peanut butter seemed to work out OK, though. ;-)
Private Bailey reporting for duty!!
Sounds like something didn't add up!!
Good to hear it's running again!
Same here - 1920x1200 on an HP Elitebook 8730w.
At my company we put customer issues first. If that means stopping some/all mainline development until we figure out the issue, solve it and deliver a fix to the client so be it. Existing customers come first.
Your existing customer base will be loyal and give great support references which in my industry counts for a lot. They are also much more forgiving of other foibles in the product.
Seems MS needs to adjust their priorities.
(Speaking as a Lumia 920 owner)
Jeb Bush pushed a PST
Without no thought to privacy.
In a panic he did redact
A great big fail and that's a fact.
... it reboots in a flash!!
Meanwhile Intel's price gouging continues.
Their prices are never reduced once a chip comes out. Been watching their price lists for a while now. Since AMD has become not quite so competitive Intel has pretty much owned the medium to high end and it shows. Not impressed.
Actually it only has one leg. ;-)
But yes the hardware is nice. Surface 3 I give an 8/10. Surface 4 should be a 9/10 with newer Intel 14nm CPUs and Windows 10.
From your mouth to....
I also have a 920 and would be seriously displeased if it was orphaned.
Why is nobody landing on this very close body, but instead focusing on a comet n-squintillion miles away?
Surely this must have some very interesting possibilities?
Yes the Americans don't mention that too much in their history lessons, heh.
Using this on a 1920x1200 laptop...
For goodness sakes! The first article starts 2/3 way down the screen. Did ANYONE test this site for regular HD screen size usage? Copious usage/waste of white space, etc...
Thing is, this isn't a social media site. The same rules about large amounts of white space and "prettiness" don't apply here. We don't have users with grade 5 reading comprehension that need all the help they can get navigating the site.
Who is your target audience? Why do they come to this site?
It's great that the site layout is being tinkered with. Go for it. Maybe in future pilot as a beta site before giving us all heart attacks? ;-)
Thanks for listening.
Tofino - if you want somewhere gorgeous to unwind that's the place. It's worth the drive.
Try to make it there are least once a year...
Oh dear this looks like fail on so many levels.
It doesn't look like Powershell 5 will be backported to Windows 7 or Server 2008/R2? Drat.
I am 1000% in agreement and have mentioned this in a different thread.
Windows store will continue to be DOA until we can develop universal apps for W7. An SP2 update will do that nicely. Come on MS, what are you waiting for? It's so "bleedin' obvious".
Burg vs. Borg
Get the popcorn...
I would expect that to be an option - either by simply unpinning them from the start menu and/or via a global start menu setting.
I would like the option to put live tiles on the desktop.
OK, it looks like the rush-job that was Windows 8 has finally been beaten into something that is usable. My first suggestion for W10 is to allow live tiles on the desktop.
The Universal Application API also sounds good. I assume this is only for W10, but if the hints of free upgrades from 8.x to 10 are true then that's good news.
As a developer the big, huge bonus would be for MS to back-port that universal API to Windows 7 and make that part of Windows 7 SP2. Some of my clients are only going to be completely rid of XP in the next few months (and installing Windows 7).
Our product(s) are targeting Windows 7 (and Server 2K8/R2) as a minimum requirement. That means Win32/.Net which is supported on 7/8.x/10.
Unfortunately we can't migrate to U-API since we must support Windows 7.
What are the chances of U-API being back-ported? Probably nil. This will be MS's final hurdle to clear - the humongous installed base of W7. I suggest that until they "get it" and backport U-API to W7 their app store will continue to flounder.
Windows 2015 - make it consistent with the server naming.
Seems an obvious option...
That screen shot looks very, very similar to the self-checkout machines at Home Depot.
Which company is providing the software?
Try talcum powder - really!
Evil pill kills tills, HD wills ill to shills.
I was just going to suggest a Canadian alliance. Makes sense to me. :)
You would probably be interested in the fact that the MF COBOL has Eclipse integration as well as Visual Studio.
Crank's tank bank bid shoots blanks thanks to skanky wanks.
Starting to sound like a fire sale to me...
Sounds like a case of pre-ejeculation to me...
Some sort of African way to sniff out security issues?
So we are being told we need an anti-virus anti-virus?
>> Google Play has no approval process, so tests like this can't be part of it. :)
Well, that's scary! One more reason to avoid an Android phone.
Sounds like the Google Play Store should do this same type of testing prior to approval.
Courtesy of AC/DC's "Shake a Leg" lyrics, with some tweaks:
Keepin' outta trouble with eyes in the back of my face
Kickin' ass in economy class and they tell me I'm a damn disgrace
They tell me what they think but they stink and I really don't care
Got a mind of my own move on get outta my hair
Shake a leg shake your head
Shake a leg wake the dead
Shake a leg get stuck in
Shake a leg shake a leg
Until there is a good selection of 4K content, why bother?
Watching the vid was rather spooky.
Is Intel getting into the bitcoin mining business?
Well I think this idea is just... well..... er pants!
Of course if anything goes wrong, its "buyer, buyer pants on fire!!"....
They're just turning over a new leaf
Sorry, couldn't resist.
The cynic would think the hire could simply be part of a strategy to slow down Nokia's development as much as boosting anything at Apple.

- Surface Light
I particularly enjoyed the "whooshing" sound of the Calcium ions in the video.
