I knew this was all their fucking fault!
What do I care if a website can hijack my device because I haven't updated the webview component?
This is exactly what MS are doing with Windows 10, if you want security updates you have to also accept them "updating" applications you're using however they see fit.
Don't mention down votes!
Feminism isn't stupid. Assuming that someone's gender has a massive impact on their ability is stupid.
Teaching respect for others regardless of gender, sexuality and religion is not "PC stupidity", it's basic common sense. Judging on the upsurge is discrimination in public it needs to be taught in schools.
Hilarious though it sounds they're not actually arguing that "lock in" is bad unless it's Oracle you're locked to. They're arguing that the contract should be awarded to multiple suppliers.
Surely anyone seriously thinking about moving to the cloud should consider portability between vendors as a major plus?
If I run a port scan of your machine from my machine it's bad, but if I upload a port scanner to your machine that's ok?
I would argue the former is less invasive.
Fake news!! FAKE NEWS!!!!!!
Agreed, racism is everywhere and seems to be on the rise. Nevertheless you have to admit the USA are becoming world leaders in it. Your president equates Facists with Anti-facists as if fighting discrimination is the same as discrimination. And your police shoot a fuck ton of black people, often just for being black.
But I'm still of the belief that racists are in the minority in the USA and elsewhere, they're just making a lot of noise at the moment.
Isn't it? It might not change government policy overnight but it does mean that, if the product's good enough, people will find a way to use it. So it could well encourage technology that circumvents government censorship.
You're argument sounds a lot like "Some people are thieves so I should steal too".
Because unlike all the other international megacorporations Google has "Don't be evil" in it's code of conduct.
Ok, "expect" is maybe a bit strong, but they said it so we're allowed to keep pointing it out!
If you're on here without it you've got a pretty limited experience. I see scripts from 5 domains, though I'm only running the Reg ones. Virtually every web site these days relies on it for something, a lot don't work at all without it.
You can bitch and moan about it all you like but it is installed on pretty much every client computing device.
Besides which it's perfectly serviceable if you know what you're doing. I see shit code in C# every day. Doesn't make me hate the language, just the devs who don't know how to use it properly. It does make me wonder why people think type safety is going to improve the quality of JS in the wild.....
Tips and Corrections link, to the left of the comments button at the bottom of the article. Gets things like this dealt with quicker. If that's want you want.
It's completely their responsiblity though. This isn't a bolt out of the blue revelation, it's something they were fully aware of throughout the development of this system. They were fully aware that people sell cars. If they didn't put in place a robust mechanism to deal with this fact then they are at fault.
Look, the thing I'm familiar with I find much easier to work with. That crap that you use is rubbish, everytime I try to use it I fuck up.
Of course he was. What other reason could there possibly be for suggesting MS is a better fit for corporate IT? Well, experience I guess......
(Just waiting for my brown envelope now.)
I don't think that's the kind of trust we're talking about (not that google's cloud seems to be particularly robust if the articles on here are anything to go by).
The question is whether Google can be trusted to not try and monetise your data. Going on previous the answer to that is no.
So it's not better, you're just familiar with doing it the old way. I don't have a problem with that. My problem was with the original "invented better elsewhere" comment.
Powershell is different to most command lines because of it's piping and it's state management. That's worth investigation if you're interested in technology, however familiar you are with your current way of working.
How is piping text between commands better than piping objects?
Because Huawei aren't giving unlock codes any more?
I guess the facts of this depend on whether manufacturers build notch shaped displays from scratch or not. If the notch means cutting a bit of working screen out then it's a waste. If the manufacturers can build them that way then I guess they're ugly but potentially useful.
That's not how it works Pete. They're being fined for illegal behaviour not because the USA are a bunch of big meanies!!
My sister's partner bought a second hand iPhone that came with an apple watch. I asked them what it was good for. "Charging" was the reply.
Is it? What's the compelling use case for a smart watch then? There are none in the article or comments so far....
Why doesn't it?
If he's on a pc with a browser Google Hangouts is "free" and works as well as Skype.
Do you vote conservative?
Sorry, my bad, clearly none of you in these four pages of comments have got your knickers in a twist.
And jake, you're really out of order there mate. You don't have to cook vegan for people, you can just not cook for them. To deliberately feed them something they've told you they don't want is pretty shitty.
How would you feel if I fed something you believed to be pork that turned out to be human? It's all just about where you draw the line, and it's my line for me, not yours.
Lots of meat eating snowflakes in this thread.....
You are getting paid at least twice the "permie" rate though, something "conties" always seem to forget to mention.
Even after tax that means you get paid more for the same work.
And it's not like you don't use the facilities and services that the taxes pay for, is it?
I've done both types of work, just used an umbrella when contacting, still made excellent money.
Not really the same thing is it. They didn't come out with the 7 as a replacement for the 5.
For your comparison to work BMW would have to be currently producing two models of the 7, one from 2 years ago and one newer, slightly bigger more expensive one. If that was the case, and customers preferred the 2 year old model to the current one, they you'd be bang on the money!
It's not the case though is it. Apple released the X to replace the 8, but customers prefer the 8. That's all this story is saying.
Google are against it. They have a fuck sight more money than McCartney, which they make in a lot of cases by distributing copyrighted material they don't have a right to use.
McCartney made his money by creating music. Google have made a lot of theirs off of other people's creativity.
The American's don't care if the data is in America or not. The issues MS have had over their Irish data centre make that crystal clear.
Do they? Not noticed that round here at all. And this news is clearly pleasing a lot of people.
and then, once you're gone, trebles all round in the boardroom for doing such a sterling job!
And they understood you?
So to your mind my pc is the cloud? That's really all there is to it? The distribution across contintents isn't part of it? The ability to rapidly scale up and down isn't a thing?
I get your point, when I use the cloud it's not my computer and I don't control it, but don't pretend the cloud doesn't have any benefits to go along with the bad bits.
Looks to me like you have no idea what the requirements of this system are but assume it's been done wrong.
Do you spend a lot of time on stack overflow answering queries with "why do you want to do that?"
"all over the country folks are having their children kidnapped by state agencies because those agencies believe that children allowed to walk a few blocks home from school by themselves constitutes neglect and deserves removing the children to foster care"
As true as that.
You're just saying that because they attempted to wipe out the people who were living there before them!
And, nowadays, if you say you're English they put you in jail.
Your list is bobbins! this is mine:
Proper video calls like in the films
Laser weapon that can cut through a mustang engine block
Holographic projector to make me look like anyone I choose
Holographic projector to make me invisible
Universal (not just earth) real time voice translation
anti gravity function
tells the time
Ooh, someone spotted that people in the comments know their stuff so decided a quick derail was in order?
Indeed, the nerve of it, thinking we have the right to our own images! It's much more important that wankers with poor imaginations can still get off.
I agree. They had a terrible rep and had to do something about it. The problem is that the marketing droids have turned it into "security updates and new features" which actually means "security updates and fucking with existing features you like to make them worse".
I'm no fan of the knee-jerk anti MS brigade, but in this case they have a point. (CURSES!!)
Or, as they gave you the option, you could just say no.
Maybe the hell's heart stabbing could be reserved for people who run mining code without asking you?
All the linux zealots who use Windows update reboots as a stick to beat MS with.
Oh no he didn't!!
What's the changelog.txt file for exactly?
