The comet is just an alien spaceship! Probably a cargo...

The whole mission on it with the probe is a military black op one to enter the spaceship/comet and steal whatever is there the military needs so much.

What's broken in this week's build of Windows 10? Installing it, for one

Joerg

Re: , including new icons and

Nonsense.

At this stage 1 month before release it doesn't look even like an early alpha build.

It is just a huge lazy mess. Windows 10 is a shame.

The Windows10 (aka Windows 8.2) facade and DirectX12 lies...

What a huge mess it is the whole Windows 10 thing... which is actually nothing more than a Windows 8.2 with its name changed to make a fool of people.

The whole "Windows 10 free upgrade" is another farce too .. it really seems that the activation key will get locked to the machine on which the upgrade from Windows7 or Windows8 is to be done the first time so no hardware upgrades will be allowed or the key would stop working....

And DirectX 12 ? Well, Microsoft has been claiming for almost a whole year that with DirectX 12 on average there would be a +200% performance boost or more... BUT first games compiled and optimized for DirectX 12 just show an overall +10% performance increase with a bunch more 3D models on the screen and no real visual quality improvement at the rendering level.

And the Windows10 Start Menu.. .what about it? Well, it is a huge mess with the childish awful unusable Metro/ModernUI apps and stuff embedded into it.. Microsoft still trying to force the crap on customers at any cost.

Yeah they added Aero back but it doesn't make any sense because transparency of an awful UI design just sucks and doesn't make it look anything better.

Icons, windows, control panels.. everything looks so messed up, cheap and poor and far from polished like never before.

One would think that Microsoft was just in its early stages for a 2018 release at this point.. instead they are going to release this huge mess right now. Not even by a future ServicePack 3 or 4 they will be able to fix such an awful mess.

Windows 10 is going to be the worst Windows release ever. Way worse than the atrocious Windows8 and 8.1.

Windows Vista with its bugs and issues compared to Windows 8.x and Windows 10 nowadays looks like a masterpiece.

It's FREE WINDOWS 10 time: 29 July is D-Day, yells Microsoft

Joerg

Re: Hmmm....

Anonymous Coward: "Quite - up to 40% performance gain on a PC and up to 20% performance gain on the Xbox One...OpenGL is at least a year behind."

In your dreams! The overall average performance gain is not going to be anything better than 10% to 15%.

And Microsoft was claiming a +100% to +500% improvement...

First games with DirectX 12 support are proof that that is far from the truth and there will be no real reason to use DirectX 12 at all. So no real reason to install the awful Windows 10 aka Windows 8.2 with Metro/ModernUI crap and the fake start menu plagued with Metro.

Re: Hmmm....

DirectX 12 is a facade.

First games with DirectX 12 support are showing no real improvement over DirectX 11 unless a bunch more 3D characters on the screen could be claimed to be a huge achievement..

Make up your mind: Microsoft puts a bullet in Internet Explorer after all

Joerg

All marketing Microsoft lies...it's just a skin!

It's still Internet Explorer! The marketing dept wants to change the name to make it look like something all new. They are going to remove ActiveX controls because it just sucks.

It's still Internet Explorer with a new skin and some features disabled and they put a new name on it.

How to make a fool of customers.

Are virtualisation and the cloud SNUFFING OUT traditional backup software?

Joerg

Business/corporate cloud backup is a fraud and a shame.

All the cloud services to backup business data... what a fraud!

Any serious business from the smallest ones to the largest should have their own LTO tape drives based backup system with a proper set of servers and high speed dedicated storage and network links.

And no less than a double copy of each bit should exist. Better would be a triple copy. Then the tapes should be stored in a safe secured air conditioned place, one copy somewhere else anyway.

Free Windows 10 could mean the END for Microsoft and the PC biz

Joerg

Re: Sorry...

Just create an image of the partition where the OS installed with a simple program like Acronis TrueImage for example, or many others or even free Linux tools.

Then do any upgrade. If anything goes wrong you could quickly revert back like nothing happened and no data would be lost.

Actually anyone should create no less than a OS partition recovery image every month if not every week. Or even every day or couple of days.

Windows 10: The Microsoft rule-o-three holds, THIS time it's looking DECENT

Joerg

Windows10 just plain sucks. HoloLens are a useless crap.

Really.. Windows10 is nothing more than a Windows8.2

They are forcing users into upgrading to Windows10 by killing off Windows7 and not giving DirectX12 to Windows8.x

The awful childish unusable Metro/ModernUI is still there.

They are so desperate to give it away for free now but just for 1 year. Because they so much want to copy Apple but for no more than a year...

And the HoloLens ? A very bad copy of the already failed Google Glass.

Augmented reality is not holograms and it's not an holographic thing.

This pair of glasses looks huge and silly. No one is going to use it other than a bunch of people paid by the Microsoft marketing machine just like Google paid people to show the Google Glass nonsense thing.

The majority of people already rejected the useless glasses for fake 3D .. the industry all together along with Hollywood didn't manage to sell that crap again and it's now a dead technology...

Google halted production of Google Glass because all surveys tell them that people would not buy any glasses to use a computer or for augmented reality. No one would go around wearing those.

And Microsoft with its marketing machine is trying to sell a huge pair of glasses blabbing about holograms ? Seriously ?

Please...

What a failure !

It's 4K-ing big right now, but it's NOT going to save TV

Joerg

Nonsense. Of course 4K is not the next big thing..8K is...

4K is just like what 720p was for HDTV before 1080p got released. The UHDV revolution is happening very fast now. Prices keep falling.

The only real issue is the mess the industry did with a lack of proper gaming consoles capable of smooth 4K 3D 60fps playable games

As well as the lack of a new high quality high bitrate optical media standard. And the upcoming UHDV BluRay for 4K only at 100Mbps it's too little too late.

They better release 8K capable future proof hardware now or they won't be able to market it properly like they did mostly thanks to Sony with its Playstation3 and BluRay standard for the HDTV era.

Also.. when did Microsoft ever give Windows away for free ?

Adobe with its subscription DRM cloud crap is already a shame.

But Microsoft has no Photoshop, Autocad or Maya monopoly to use. Windows is no Autocad or Photoshop.

Businesses will avoid upgrading for a long time. And consumers won't even bother considering an upgrade.

NSA SOURCE CODE LEAK: Information slurp tools to appear online

It's Big, it's Blue... it's simply FABLESS! IBM's chip-free future

Joerg

IBM losing money? Please..managers faking accounting!

That is the only truth. These IBM managers are thieves and should be put in jail. They stole billions inside the group. The have destroyed the biggest and strongest IT Corporation ever. They kept faking accounting to show that they needed to sell this and that. Nothing was ever true. They were just stealing money and getting bribes from competitors to sell the assets and so on.. It's all dirty business, it's all dirty money..it's a mafia thing!

If there was any justice bankers and these managers would have been put in jail long time ago. Unfortunately we live in a world with no justice and criminals are allowed to become managers, steal money, steal assets, destroy people lives along with top-notch products.

IBM storage revenues sink: 'We are disappointed,' says CEO

Joerg

IBM managers are thieves!

They are selling the microprocessors/high-end super computers CPUs unit and factories at an ultra cheap price that it's just plain insane!

They destroyed IBM in a very short time, they sold all its top-notch units. IBM had the best CPUs way more advanced than what Intel is able to do.. a good reason why when there were good managers at Sony willing to create top-notch products they co-developed the Cell CPU with IBM for the Playstation3 (but nowadays Sony too is full of thieves controlling the group and wasting time, money and resources like never before).

These managers are thieves! Just plain criminals like bankers! They all deserve to be put in jail!

Apple iPhone 6 Plus: GORGEOUS FAT pixel density - but it's WASTED

Joerg

Rescaling algorithms don't use simple 2x2 pixel blocks and such...

To rescale pictures complex techniques based on signal theory are used. Complex interpolation algorithms are used. It's not just a simple "double the pixel" thing with Retina. Otherwise pictures and text wouldn't look that good. The simplest "double pixel" techniques were used in the past, ancient for IT, when hardware didn't have the computing power to process more complex, better algorithms.

Apple's iPhone 6 first-day sales are MEANINGLESS, mutters analyst

Joerg

A Samsung or Google paid analyst, uh?

Really.. competitors are so desperate. Android manufacturers don't disclose actual numbers, the number of real customers that bought their products but just give the press the numbers of units sold to distributors,shops... not the sold ones, which are always a lot lower than the true actual numbers of Apple.

This analyst is so silly... what is he going to tell then at the end of this first quarter of sales? That if the iPhone6 number of units sold is going to be "just" 60million it would be a big failure? Or that if it's "just" 70 to 80million that wouldn't be enough and that it would still be a failure and next quarter the numbers would drop? Or that the new iPhones would be too expensive to manufacture and so Apple would need 120-150million units sold per quarter to break even ?

Please... these analysts paid by competitors are really so pathetic.

Re: I've always found...

Lost all faith...: "I've always found...

many Sony products being priced at the very high end of the market, thinking themselves as a premium brand, but most people I speak to, think they make nice stuff, just over priced."

You and the people you speak to clearly don't have a clue what you are babbling about.

Playstation, Playstation2, MiniDisc, DAT, Playstation3, Bravia Tv, Camcorders, SXRD projectors, 4K high-end professional projectors (JVC is still stuck at fake 4K .. just 1080p interpolated to 4K for its projectors) and so on are/have been absolutely top-notch products worth their price.

No TKO for LTO: Tape format spawns another 2 generations, sports 120TB bigness

Re: success rates in restoring from tape?

You were using old digital tapes technologies, clearly.

LTO tape drives have a UBER 10E17 reliability. There is a lot of redundancy on the tapes, in the 30-40% range at least.

The tape must be seriously damaged for the drive being unable to restore data from it.

Re: Amount of time to back up to tape

LTO-6 drives are either SAS or FC (some expensive models, usually tape libraries, use Ethernet with link aggregation support).

For LTO-6 the uncompressed native transfer rate is sustained 160MB/s when reading as well writing.

Which means a 2,500,000MByte tape (actually just like with HDUs and SSD and CD/DVD/BD the real size it's base 2 not base 10...but then marketing... ) as written on IBM website: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ts3500tl/v1r0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.storage.ts3500.doc%2Fipg_3584_meltoworm.html

"Ultrium 6 2500 GB (2328.31 GiB)"

So it means 2,328,310 MB / 160 MB = 14551.9375 secs = 242 minutes = 4 hours 2 minutes approx

We can expect LTO-7 6.4TB tapes then to take: 6,250,000 MB / 315 MB = 19841 secs = 330 minutes = 5 hours 30minutes approx

For up to LTO-4 120MB/s standard consumer grade cheap SATA 7200rpm Hard Drives currently sold are more than enough .. even LTO-5 at 140MB/s could work...

For LTO-6 at least use two consumer grade drives in RAID-0 better on an hardware RAID controller anyway.

Obviously for professional use it's common to use no less than 8 HDUs in RAID-5 or RAID-6 .. otherwise for 16+ drives RAID-60 it's a better option. With hardware controllers supporting SSD caching then adding up to 4 SSD MLC or SLC drives for speeding the arrays up even further it's a good thing.

Re: 2.5:1 compression is just misleading

Yeah.. there is marketing.. BUT .. it's not that uncompressed 26TeraByte at 700MByte/s speed for LTO-9 tapes and 48TeraByte at 1.1GBytes/s speed for LTO-10 are going to be disappointing at all... !

That is more than enough capacity and performance for the next 10 years.

Re: Lowest-cost archive medium

Object storage bods Exablox: RAID is dead, baby. RAID is dead

Joerg

RAID is dead? What a silly joke!

These guys with the marketing babbling nonsense "object storage" are just beyond silly...

So they aren't using any RAID algorithms to create and manage redundancy on the drives arrays ? Really?

I doubt that!

NAS manufacturers have been using extended proprietary RAID modes that allow to mix drives of different sizes avoiding the limits of classic RAID levels for years already...

The "object storage" revolution it's just marketing babbling. At the low level you always need to write algorithms with some very complex math like RAID.

They provide no technical info to backup their claims. If they created something so much better than RAID then they should give some low level technical info to let people understand why it would be so much better than RAID. And why it would be as much or more reliable...

But I really think that this is all just marketing b*ll here...

Stick a 4K in them: Super high-res TVs are DONE

Joerg

They need to release 250GB or 500GB discs for 8K and 4K...

HDTV became a standard thanks to the Blu-Ray and the Sony Playstation3 gave a huge sales boost worldwide.

Sony managers this time decided to steal money and release a Playstation4 fraud which is not the real Playstation4... In fact the real Playstation4 prototype it's still in Sony labs and it's known to feature a 16-core Cell 2 CPU that IBM built for Sony as well as a 500GB holographic discs unit....

If only Sony managers released that top-notch product instead of the ultra slow AMD APU Jaguar fraud along with Microsoft.. then now there would have been no issues releasing high-quality 100Mbps H.265 encoded 8K movies on 500GB discs for The-True-Playstation4 users.

So either Sony releases that prototype renamed as Playstation5 immediately and stops with the current fraud or there is not much hope for UltraHD to invade the market...
