Cadbury flakes in face of Kraft bid - cuts expected

Cod
FAIL

CurlyWurlys are on me!

For a short while longer anyway...after which they will have the caramel centre replaced by cheesewhizz.

Eat up kiddies.

How Google became Microsoft: A decade of hits, misses and gaffes

Megaphone

What, nothing about commodity x86 virtualisation!?

Surely that's got to be worth a paragraph or two? Nevermind the ongoing discussions on whether or not it's the panacea for our datacentre woes - it has been a game-changer.

Prevx blames Microsoft for black hawk screen down

Cod
WTF?

What - no retraction?

So now PrevX are saying 'oops, we made a mishtake - it's nothing to do with the MS updates after all'.

Stop giving these idiots free publicity - then again, a few more tantrums like this one and their business is going to need all the publicity, good or bad, they can get.

Rubbish.

@Microsoft

Isn't Windows a trademark - along similar lines, Apple is a trademark but apple isn't...

Microsoft hosts Feynman lecture series

Cod
Gates Halo

Got me interested...

I remember reading the transcripts of the lectures when I was a physics undergrad in the 90s - some incredibly tough ideas presented with such enthusiasm - certainly brought the subject to life for me.

Can't fault BG for this....can we?

Orange UK exiles Firefox from call centres

Cod
Big Brother

Do as I say, not as I do...

"But in the call centre, it's IE6, all the time."

Isn't that kind of the way these corporate things go? External web presence ("optimised" for IE8, Chrome, Firefox) is always going to be several releases ahead of the internal systems infrastructure (IE6) so no big shakes there.

As has just been stated, users installing as sorts of cr*p from the web contribute to their own problems and making it the responsibility of the user to ensure their system is as 'clean' as it can be is right and proper.

Now where did I put that MS patch that kamikazed all my desktops....

Big Brother cos we're all being watched by someone.
