Sinofsky: Surface 'best tablet, best laptop' he's ever used

Re: Shame

The Windows RT device does indeed support most USB devices. Just plug them in and off you go.

Also, Office isn't a 'flavour' of Office, it's a pretty much full version of Office 2013 written for ARM.

Microsoft exec departs after tweet about Nokia phone

Can't wait!

I love my Windows Phone 7 and will be buying the Nokia version when it comes out.

The best mobile OS combined with cracking hardware surely can't be beaten!

If you think Windows Phone 7 is utter shite compared to iOS and Android you have obviously not used it.

Microsoft reveals WinPhone 7 'Mango' details

The Windows Phone 7 upgrades were not a mess at all. OK, so there were some issues with the Samsung phones when the very first update was released but the NODO update went without a hitch. Microsoft were staggering the upgrades so that if there was an issue they could catch it before it caused more users problems.

I can't wait for the Mango release but I'm quite happy using my HD7 as it is while I wait.

WinPho7 Rocks!

I've had an HD7 for a few months now and love it. The interface is brilliant and while not perfect which phone OS is?

I'm looking forward to the update as I miss copy and paste from my iphone but that is the only thing I miss.

I also love Zune. I have a Zune pass and I can download or stream all the music I want. I also don't have to use iTunes any more which is a blessing. iTunes is possibly the worst piece of software ever written.

Windows Phone 7

I've had an HD7 for over a week now and it is a superb device. OK, so it has a few 1st gen teething problems but no show stoppers.

Fingers crossed that it is a big success.

Symantec Y2.01K bug still stymies customers

No surprise

This is no surprise. SEP is a bug ridden turd that performs badly and is annoying to use. The only reason we use it is because we are forced to.

If they think their website is horrific......

They should take a look at HP's or Cisco's.

Just going to the homepage is enough to give me cold sweats!

Cyclists give TV chef a Wikikicking

I hate him and cyclists.

Personally I think James Martin is a pratt of the highest order, but I also have to agree with his opinion of cyclists. Tossers, every last one of them.

Warm rather than hot.

Mine gets a little warm but nothing to worry about and certainly nowhere near hot enough to burn skin

RIP PCW. You will be missed.

I used to read this magazine religiously from being 8 years old (in 1978) and read it until a couple of years ago when it was sadly overtaken by t'internet.

I still bought the odd issue but even though I don't read it regularly I will still miss it.

I had a family of squirrels living in my roof. I bought a couple of traps and cought 6 of them in a week. They are REALLY stupid and easy to catch.

Enjoy your meal. :-)
