I love lamp.

World finally ready for USB-bootable OS/2


I'm not saying that OS/2 is just hipster rubbish, but the only time I've seen it out in the wild is in Shoreditch when an ATM machine crashed mid-transaction and it rebooted..

If Microsoft made laptops, it'd make this: HP Spectre x360

Windows 7 MARKED for DEATH by Microsoft as of NOW


Re: WTF?

Banks lol - was at a cashpoint the other week -- the one next to me then crashed and rebooted something called OS2 Warp?


Nexus 9: Google and HTC deliver Android 5.0 'Lollipop' at iPad prices


I bought an iPad Air2 the other day and am generally enjoying it but GOD HELP ME I'm this close > < to stacking it off and getting one of these instead because I want to be able to DNLA stream mkv files from my media server. Incomprehensible that Apple make this so difficult.

But games like Hitman Go, Civ Rev (2), and the Silent Age just keep me locked in.

Maybe I just need to man up.

How much is Microsoft earning from its Android taxes again?


Re: Separation of handset and OS

Top Gun display for your CAR: Heads-up fighter pilot tech


Had HUD in a 5 series once; bloody brilliant. I'd really like this in my current motor - a trusty old Ford Focus but this seems a bit over engineered.

Windows 8 market share stalls, XP at record low


Re: Why won't they sort it out?

What kind of dog is it?

Microsoft's MCSE and MCSD will become HARDER to win


Passed the Office 365 MCSA recently -- there was loads of powershell queries I had to.. put together.. which is weird because in the real world, on my laptop, I have a folder called 'Powershell Scripts' with lots of Powershell queries saved as text files where I refer to all the powershell functions I need for Exchange, AD, etc -- does that make me less of an expert?

Getting people to remember how to execute SQL queries or Powershell scripts is utter nonsense.

New leaked 'Windows 8 screenshot': The Start Menu strikes back


What? I've not had desktop icons since Windows XP.

I don't need to have a start menu that fills MY ENTIRE ESTATE. I'm a PC, quite literally. No touch screen. Just give me a neat tidy launchpad. With this update I might MAY perhaps COULD think about going from 7 to 8.X.Whatever

JJ Abrams and Star Wars: I've got a bad feeling about this


If we're really lucky, Roberto Orci Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof will take over writing and let JJ crack on with blinding us with lens flares and horizontal wipes.

Course we're all gonna watching from behind the sofa with rock bottom expectations anyhow -- what's the worst that could meesa happen?

Google ordered to censor 'torrent', 'megaupload' and more words


If Google could censor any websites with technical questions that have gone unanswered for over a month, that'd also be fcking amazing.

Cloudy crypto SSO firm: Passwords must go


Passwords aren't the problem..

it's usernames. "Most people" already have a single password for everything and how is this any different? Give me a system that remembers all my sodding usernames - that has use.

Single-sign-on. Pah. Not even online banking operates this way - with good reason.

Soup up your home network


Re: Just a shame...

Virgin now do two boxes - a 'hub' and a 'superhub' I think they call them.

The old modem+router has been done away for a Netgear with their connection which has 100mbps ethernet whilst their 30mbps+ products get a gigabit router.

It's a bit of a cheek, if you ask me, so I still run a router (gigabit) infront of their box and get double-Natting, which is annoying.

Android spanking iOS in world's BIGGEST mobile market

misleading article

I only clicked on the article because of that ladies bottom. There's no more ladies bottoms in the article. This is just plain misleading.

People who ordered phones today with no problems -- you guys all using Firefox, or IE??


An Absolute Farc-Up

I've been hitting the site for just over 2 hours now (since 9.30) - and have got to the 'choose your phone and tarrif' screen twice and it keeps crashing out.

what an absolute joke - once you get sent the code, they should switch you onto another box instead of continuing to run you on this overloaded server.

very very cross as an upgrade customer!
