Why are we still getting "new" SATA drives. I thought SATA was done.
You're going to struggle running ARM anything on an x86 CPU such as an Atom.
As far as I can tell, if you're using WSUS then you won't get this update and in addition if the update is installed on to a domain joined computer it won't run. So this is only a possible issue for sites that have off domain computers updating directly from MS.
A: exactly the same as windows 7 and windows 8 which are both much faster than doing the same thing in XP
Press start, type network connections
That's 5 euro cents per MB so €50 per GB of data in addition to whatever bat shit crazy figure your operator has pulled out of their arse to charge you for out of bundle data.
Always use the offline installer, it doesn't contain ask and won't contain Yahoo! It's a pain when you update because you can't use the auto updater, you have to go and download the full offline installer again.
I've got one of these http://www.streacom.com/products/fc8-alpha-fanless-chassis/ but it's quite bulky and has a huge external PSU.
So we can get 4TB in a 2.5" drive but the biggest 3.5" non shingled drive is 8TB. What are they doing wrong with the 3.5" drives which are physically about 3-4x bigger than the 2.5"?
well obviously some apps are going to break, just the same as some apps break when you go from ios 5-6-7 or android 2.3-4.0-4.1 but most windows phone apps that ran on 7 were also fine on 7.5, 7.8, 8.0 and 8.1 and will probably still run OK on 10.
Thing is for USB 1, 1.1 and 2 you can generally use the same cable.
For USB 3 you can use an old USB cable and you'll get USB 2 speeds. If you use a USB 3 cable you can't connect it to a USB 2 device, it won't physically fit and it works fine in a USB 2 host just at the slower speed.
I don't think USB-C is going to be an issue either. If you have a 40Gbps disk array you're going to know that a £1 Amazon basics cable isn't the best thing to use and you're not going to be trying to plug it in to your computer monitor.
I guess there could be some minor confusion if your laptop has two ports with display port on one and not on the other but we have this at the moment. My laptop has two USB ports, one can charge devices whilst the laptop is turned off, the other can't. If I plug it in the wrong one, no problem I just plug it in the other one. At the moment that takes 4 attempts (3 on the first USB, 1 on the second) with USB-C this will be down to 2.
I think people are missing the point here. You still use a GUI to manage your server, you just don't run the GUI on the server. If I want to make a change in Exchange I use Exchange console, on my local PC, if I want to perform some dba tasks in SQL server I do that in SQL management console, on my local PC. Reading the event viewer, ADUC, group policy, WSUS etc. I use the GUI for all of these tasks because for a one off task it is generally easier than the CLI but I don't run the GUI on the server desktop.
This is all well and good, the problem comes in installing software. Software generally has two install options, either a GUI install which needs to be installed on the local machine or a silent install which requires you to construct all of the parameters into a commandline or answer file. What we need is remote installers, run the installer GUI on your desktop PC and it connects to the server and pushes the install.
I have a surface pro 2 at work and it does sit on your lap. It's a bit weird because the kick stand means you need space behind the screen on your legs to make it stand.
Personally I'd still rather have a nice light laptop.The new surface 3 is just too expensive and has too may compromises to make it really useful. The whole surface range has always suffered the same issues. They're too bulky, lacking in apps to beat a decent tablet and they're not as good as a decent laptop at being a laptop.
There is a way to make kettles more efficient but it's not reducing the power. The trick is to make the kettle only heat the water that you need rather than the amount you pour in.
Microsoft should've pushed this more.
Windows Media Centre is an excellent PVR. Take up was poor due to the cost. A decent media center PC with IR remote a couple of HD tuners and a fluid interface will set you back at least £300. That's a hard sell when you can get a box that does 80% of the same stuff for £100 or companies like BT or TalkTalk will throw a box at you for "free".
The other big problem with media centre is that in the UK you can't use it with Sky or Virgin, Microsoft needed to do deals with these companies if media centre was to succeed.
The final issue is that whilst the PVR stuff was very good, the rest of media centre is very poor.
I'm still running the windows 7 version I guess I'll carry on with that until Microsoft no longer support it and the EPG dies. By which time nobody will be watching broadcast TV and there will be something better to use.
you forgot your joke icon
"So - will dead ones still get into Silicon Heaven?"
There's no such thing as silicon heaven
I didn't realise 37 had gone stable
I don't think this is going to be the same as O2 broadband. The customers of O2 were used to getting a decent level of service particularly those on bethere. Those customers already had the choice of sky broadband but had chosen not to go with it.
Lots of EE customers are already going to also be BT customers for broadband and phone lines but at the moment they can't get mobile from BT, if they're already BT broadband customers I would imagine they will appreciate a cheap package deal on their mobiles.
It's a transliteration, you can spell it either way, it's an interpretation of how you pronounce the word and different people will pronounce the word differently. I think the only correct way to spell it would be חוצפה
Surely you don't need a whole new drive to connect to a USB-C port, just a new cable right?
I love the idea that you wrap a powershell script in perl, do you call that from a batch file wrapped in python?
"Lenovo support tools to help Lenovo keep your drivers up to date, and allow them to remote your PC if you give them the code
Lenovo tool to make special keypresses (such as turn on/off keyboard backlight, tweak monitor brightness, etc) not only work, but show an icon on the screen when you push the button."
But this is bloatware. Drivers can be pushed through Windows Update no need for a different Lenovo tool to be running to do this.
There shouldn't be any special key presses, volume, brightness etc. all of these are standard keys and since Windows 8 there have been on screen displays for them too.
Instead of wasting everyone's time developing these tools they should spend the time developing their laptops so that they work properly with a vanilla Windows install.
Your knowledge of world bridges is lacking, that's clearly Hull
It will almost certainly be fine, but so is a raspberry pi 2 for less than half the price.
You have Samsung Magician installed? And running? And you don't think you're an idiot?
The last time I installed that piece of software it needed elevated privileges to run in the system tray, it got un-installed pretty quickly.
So it turns out that IT stuff sometimes breaks. If you can't afford to be without your computer for the amount of time it takes Samsung to RMA your drive then I suggest that you need.
1. A spare drive
2. A warranty with next day or 4 hour support that will come out and replace parts when they go wrong
3. A spare computer
If you don't have these things then you need to be asking yourself the question, "Did I need to install a firmware update on my SSD?"
Did the firmware update fix a bug you were personally experiencing? Did the firmware update provide some new functionality that you couldn't live without?
These people upgraded the firmware on their drives with no RAID and no backup?
This looks like a good solution you can create dead keys for the accents or map the accented characters to modifiers.
No need to install .NET 2.0
On Window 7 .NET 3.5 is pre-installed which covers 2.0
On Windows 8 or 8.1 you need to enable the .NET 3.5 feature from the control panel
you can simulate Alt Gr using CTRL+ALT
Also if you use the UK extended layout the ` key becomes a dead key for typing grave accents
Whilst I agree that typing accented characters can be a pain in windows bébé is not a good example of a word that's hard to type the é character is just Alt Gr+E
Of course I doubt a mac has an Alt Gr key
The best keyboard for someone who wants to type in multiple languages that I've found is a Spanish one. Loads of accents but it retains the qwerty layout.
Google talk was supported? Who knew?
problem is drives aren't a standard size they come in loads of different thicknesses. It could be done but everything would need to be held in place by springs and the drives would just vibrate themselves to death.
Didn't realise they also made phones, I though they were just photocopiers, solar panels and kitchen knives
it's not the amount of storage that is the problem it's how the storage is partitioned. The cheaper Lumias have SD card support so they are given more generous OS partitions. The more expensive Lumias have larger internal storage but no SD card support so the OS partitions are smaller to maximise the available flash space.
I think it's also possible these phones have been chosen because there are plenty out there so more targets for testing and they share a common CPU.
I'm guessing this is more down to the logitech media server not using the correct stream. Mine now plays an information message telling me about audio factory.
Pretty sure most companies buy computers that come with the latest OEM Windows Pro license then use downgrade rights and imaging rights to stick whatever version on they are currently supporting. Windows 7 needed enterprise to do bitlocker but that is built in to Pro now. Most people aren't going to care about the extra features in enterprise.
HPs EVA did this as well, spares were just space reserved at the end of each drive. That way none of your spindles was unused and if your array was at 50% capacity you could lose 50% of your disks (not at the same time) without ever having to replace a drive.
I don't understand why all arrays don't work this way.
Dropbox app is out. It's not all that great though you can't open office docs edit them and then save them back to dropbox.
Maybe Microsoft should start paying bounties for bugs in Google software
There are two of them.
HTC have the Windows M8 (same as the android version but running windows) and Samsung have the Ativ SE (an S4 running windows)
Problem is both are only available on the US market, you know the market where nobody buys Windows phones.
For Cortana in the UK you need the Denim update. It's rolling out at the moment, check here https://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/ to see if it has been released for your device/region
The trick to not being forced into using an email address to log in is to make sure you aren't connected to the Internet when you're setting the computer up. So don't join your wireless network until you've created your account.
These are probably aimed at external drives. SATA drives in racks are usually 3.5" and designed for 24x7 running.
It's worth pointing out that the 2TB Seagate/Samsung drive mentioned is a 9.5mm drive so will fit in laptops.
This is an M.2 card and most likely NVMe so the article you posted isn't relevant
The register app used to be reasonable, just lacking a live tile with the latest headlines. Then the comments broke and it has never been fixed.
Sticking a link to it at the bottom of an article without even checking to see if it actually still works is a pretty poor effort
Fanbois who are willing to shell out $14.99 can purchase _a licence to watch_ a high-definition version.
When BT install the VDSL street cabinets they have to dig the road between the voice cabinet and the new VDSL cabinet, this might be a metre or sometimes it's the other side of a street.
In any largish building there will be a BT duct entering underground bringing in 100s of voice pairs from the street cabinet terminated at a demarcation point. BT will add a rack near this demarcation point and bring in the fibre connections using the existing duct. No need to dig anything and no need to find the space outdoors for the cabinet.
As for FTTP, I'd guess this is actually harder in a building such as this since BT would need to run fibre from the demarcation point through existing risers and ducts which may travel through other tenants offices depending on the design of the building. The copper will already be there ready to use.
Sure, I have no problem with the "black box" part in my example running Android but if I don't like that bit or it's no longer the best system for the job I should be able to pull it and replace it with something I do like without having to take a hacksaw to the dashboard of my car, and without losing the integration into the handsfree microphone, heads up display, steering wheel controls etc.
This is going to become more important over time. For years stereos in cars had radio and tape or if you were lucky a CD player and that was fine. Then music changed and everyone had mp3 so there was ipod integration which generally stopped working as iOS changed. There's 3.5mm inputs but the control interface on your phone or mp3 player is crap for use in a car. There's bluetooth but support is patchy, newer stereos have better support but without a standard you're stuck with the one that came with your car.
rather than this sort of crap we need manufactures to develop standardised systems for cars.
Cars built today will likely run for 10-15 years, probably more. Is an Android going to be the best choice for in car entertainment in that amount of time?
The entertainment systems fitted to cars need to be upgradeable in a standard way, like they used to be.
Make the amplifier separate. Then the system itself can be a black box hidden away somewhere with standard connectors for power, control and display.
Are there any other companies that make hard drives?
