Anonymous internet smart arses? At least Andrew had the balls to put a name to his opinion. AC why exactly?

Re: Canadians are simply disarmed Americans with health care.
Admittedly they don't have more guns than people like Americans do, but Wikipedia puts them at 11th in the world for armed residents so they're still pretty tasty. The fact they don't kill each other as much as citizens of the USA isn't because they don't have guns.....
Re: It is actually worse with Windows 10
I disagree. Users can uninstall Windows 10. Try using the internet without Google watching and see how far you get.
re: Oh and El Reg, can we please be done with the recraptcha stuff?
I've never seen a recaptcha prompt on here. Is it only for posts that are way too long for anyone to bother reading, just to piss the poster off?
Hope so, that's quality tech!!
Re: Then they crashed into the ground in a huge ball of flames. What does that tell you about them?
It doesn't tell you anything about the Liberals. It tells you a lot about the electorate.
re: Talk to the wife? Pah!
I bet she's gutted.
I'd rather deal with their problems directly than deal with the mess after they've tried to fix them.
Re: Computer Misuse Act?
Hmm, kind of, but would you buy a door with a lock that worked with any key, or a car that just started when someone got into it? There comes a point where you're actively encouraging people to abuse your stuff....
If your device is configured so anyone saying "OK Google" activates it then how can you complain when someone says "OK Google" and it's activated? Are you saying that people shouldn't be allowed to say "OK Google" around google stuff? It's a slippery slope if we allow Google to take control of our mouths.
Google need to roll out a voice filter so that these things respond to recognised users and not everyone within earshot. (Or just get rid of the creepy listening crap. God knows I've tried to disable it on my new android phone but it still kept fucking chiming in last time I was using it for navigation....)
The DoL sued Google earlier this year seeking to get its hands on the details....
...of the Chocolate Factory's salary structure to ensure compliance with federal laws on equal pay. Google respond with some bullshit tweet about equal pay?
Well I'm convinced there's nothing to investigate, it's not like Google would tell lies.
Re: Kind of the point i am making.......
Really? You didn't do a very good job then.
Grammar nazi fail! You need the icon!!
Re: It's not actually a Linux bug. It's a simple rookie scripting error.
Isn't it strange how this sort of comment gets upvoted when Linux is the host. I wonder if a simple scripting error on Windows would be commented on so favourably....
Re: No, they all seem quite enthused...
And if you were living there you'd make it clear that you disagreed with them? How long do you think you'd be able to keep that going before you were executed?
re: I think you'll find that's what we do :-)
Is it that the moderators have finally become as tired of the MS bashing as the rest of us non-freetards? (paytards?) You've got to admit it's pretty fucking samey.....
Re: A platform built on sand
>> One of the major goals with the version 4 release, said Fluin, was to avoid the breaking changes that occurred between version 1 and version 2. <<
So the Angular devs agree with you. Did you read the article?
Re: So more like two glasses of red at dinner
Back off Brussels!!!
Re: I wonder why so many commentards came to exactly the same instant conclusion
It's called prejudice.
Re: But not to fix a Microsoft site. It's Google Maps which doesn't work in Vivaldi
Yeah, but I'm sure there's perfectly good reason for Google to use user agent sniffing. It's when M$ do it that it's a massive problem!
Re: Micro$oft sux
I believe the commentards prefer "Slurp". It's like they don't know what Google Analytics is.
Re: that suggests police are no more corrupt than the average.
Because how suspicious I am of my colleagues is the same as actual evidence?
Re: Chinese worry me less than Microsoft, GCHQ and NSA.
But you're ok with Google?
Re: Why even link to a paywall article?
Those who have a subscription can follow the link?
And if MS had pushed out (more) borked software?
You wouldn't be able to fucking move in here for smart arses gloating.
re: Many, many phenomena in physics were predicted long before they could be detected
Indeed, that is how science works. Nevertheless, before the proof is concrete it's sensible to take the theory with a pinch of salt.
It does look like a bodge though. Calling it "amending the model to fit the data" sounds better as long as you don't think about it for too long.
Re: Lots of shouty, no content
Re: Shame on Tim Berners-Lee.
What, for not agreeing with you? Surely he's earned the right to have an opinion, even if it's "wrong"....
He's done more for the internet than any of the blowhards from either side pontificating here.
Re: That needs to be built up over multiple releases.
Yeah, fine if mummy and daddy are happy paying for the company to run for a few years. How do you build that fan base up if no-one's paying for what you produce?
re: with better games
Nice one! Ta!
Re: The CIO didn't get the bullet for a complete failure of leadership.....
They'd be happy to take the bonus when the team perform well though.
Without 'half' an IT dept, how did the company get by?
With half of them gaming all day how did the company get by? Why would it make the situation worse when they left? All it did was reduce load on the network.
re: had the owner registered with Google Business ... this could have been resolved
Nice business you've got here, looks very profitable! Wouldn't it be a pity if something bad were to happen to it? Say if people thought you'd closed down, just as an example....
What you need is protection buddy, and we're just the internet search giants to give it to you. All you have to do is sign here....
We should do something to correct this imbalance.
Stop committing crimes?
re: End this insanely illiberal tax now.
It's almost like the goverment want crapita employed to do this to encourage outrage at this "illiberal tax".
I pay tax towards all sorts of services that I don't currently use, that doesn't make those taxes illiberal. I don't see the BBC as any different. You may not want to consume their services but having a national broadcaster who's required to be unbiased is definitely better than just giving Rupert and his ilk total control of our media.
Re: It sounds like the old Windows cruft idea
It does sound like that but my old Android had slowed up loads over the course of 2 years and I seldom install apps, or update the ones I have. As well as slowing down the phone is also getting buggier (it keeps dropping the music player from the lock screen now, a feature I've used since I got the phone but which has become flaky in the last 3 months.)
I've got nothing useful to add about how Android gets in this state, but in my experience (with my phone and the kids phones) Android degrades with use irrespective of how much you install.
Re: So what exactly is the point of Windows 10 here.
It has the best IDE?
Go on, suggest a better one. Last time I asked this question on a linux thread I got short shrift and no suggestions (other than the IDE bombastic bob was building himself). What's the open source Visual Studio beater?
Re: Point missing
Thanks for that! Cheered me right up!!
Re: these script languages
re: Isolating liberals from reality in the world largest echo-chamber.
Re: As soon as people make unfounded allegations about other people being shills
It's not unfounded to read someone's post and say "that makes you sound like a shill". It's understandable when all they're saying is "See! I told you so! This product is great!!".
I very much doubt the OP is paid by Google, but his cheerleading does smack of salesman.
But if their back end is massively out of date then all the front end shenanigans aren't going to make any difference to their security.
re: I'm a Director Level, UNIX bad-ass MoFo
You certainly are!
Re: wind the bleating heart lefties up
Re: is a rare show of common sense, from which others could learn
For most of us common sense isn't the last resort....
re: That or waste billions of dollars on an impenetrable gate that no one wants or needs.
That's ok, we're going to get the horse to pay for it!
>> The Desktop Bridge gives developers the ability to create one application for Windows 7 and Windows 10, but to get the benefit of UWP-like installation and Store delivery.<<
Read the fucking article before commenting?
Re: Getting bored of Linux bores clogging up MS discussions.
Amen! It's the same tired old shit every fucking time.
It's dull and irrelevant. Give it a rest.
Re: a Polaroid of the Mona Lisa.
That's another thing that I'd class as art if it was created as such. It's a poignant comment on our consumer society!
Old punks, we value intent above ability!
You definitely won! Because more people voted for the other ones!!!
