Microsoft's Surface 3 is sweet – but I wouldn't tickle my nads with it

knarf

Why Why I always asked myself for Surface

It won't sit on your lap as it will fall over so its not a laptop as using the keyboard requires a desk, its windows and the "Metro" apps are next to useless.

Buy a nice a ultrabook, more practical and usable.

Australia finds $1 BEELLION to replace No-SQL DATABASE

knarf

System 204's deficiencies have been known since about 2004, but the government now says replacing it will “reboot” Australia's welfare systems, “ boost efficiencies and help advance many welfare reforms”.

We call it austerity in the UK

IBM staffers climb over each other in race for redundancy payout

knarf

But the Company (IBM here) can't disclose if the employee took it wilfully or were forced, so unless the employee admits to it and even the employee can claim they were forced or advised to apply. Its a sticky mess.

Boffins say Mars had ocean covering 20 per cent of planet

knarf

Re: Where did it go?

Less Gravity so it leaked into space

Smaller Size / Gravity so core lost heat quickly and water sunk into core, you need a hot core to keep the water on the surface. Volcanoes mean water, nutrient mix, C02 and with luck life.

Online retail giant Amazon GOES TITSUP ACROSS EUROPE

knarf

Kindle Fire Borked it

Reported my Kindle didn't have a network connection while it clearly did and offered to run a setup for a new connection. The connection was fine but Amazon was the problem, Stupid Amazon thinking if it can't call home then it can't have a network connection.

I can just image hoards of non-IT resetting their Kindle network connections to noavail.

Bitcoin trade biz MyCoin goes dark, investors fear $387 MEEELLION lost

knarf

I can see how would work

1) Take money promised XX bit coins

2) Pretend to fold the company

3) Bit coin prices free falls

4) Buy these coins on the cheap

5) Give the punters (mugs) their XX bit coins

6) Pocket the change.

Or just run away with all the money.

Re: Ah Sun Microsystems!

Sun never made the move from a bespoke systems supplier to a generic box shifter, you could argue that Linux and generic boxes killed Sun, but that would be too simplistic.

Inequality increasing? BOLLOCKS! You heard me: 'Screw the 1%'

That leaves us with a problem that economics simply cannot solve .

China solved it by fixing their currency values so the labour and material values stay the same.
