And then there's this one:
"In VMware vRealize Automation, the hard disks are removed unexpectedly when reconfiguring a virtual machine that has RDM disks (2124657)"

No one is saying that the command-line option should be removed or that the GUI option should be preferred. Just leave the GUI as an option. One of the reasons GUIs became popular is because the error-checking was better and it was more efficient doing a one-off. No one wants a career-altering event that the install code could prevent.
My thought is that this is also a subtle way to drive SMB folks to Azure ("Hey, we can build that server for you so you don't have to fuss about it. You won't have to lift a finger and you can spend more time visiting www.theregister.co.uk!").
"We had flagged that we were conducting this poll to the Daily Mirror as something we might share as an interesting check on our online vs our telephone methodology, but the results seemed so “out of line” with all the polling conducted by ourselves and our peers – what poll commentators would term an “outlier” – that I “chickened out” of publishing the figures – something I’m sure I’ll always regret."
Anytime there's an outage, El Reg is all over it with crass headlines. In this case, Apple was spared the school-boy humor but everything else is correct.
Last time I checked https://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/, I saw some red status indicators that are not good for things like the App Store and iTunes.
What an absolutely stupid waste of time. This is only being done for some kind of hidden agenda by the current administration. We used to have 8Mpbs on AT&T U-Verse and we were able to stream two Netflix streams simultaneously. If you wanted to bump it up the definition of "broadband", you could make it 8Mpbs or 10 Mbps, but to bump it to 25 Mbps is asinine.
One wonders if it's a coincidence this is being done *before* the decision has been made on the proposed TWC-Comcast merger.
Any thought that this project was an NSA special and was closed up before a more detailed review could be done of the code? The timing of the code review and the subsequent shutdown is interesting, to say the least.
Also, as noted elsewhere, not all versions of Windows 7/8 have access to BitLocker. To quote the Wiki: "BitLocker is available in the Enterprise and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. It is also available in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Windows 8."
If you don't like Android, you can switch to iOS or Windows Phone. With the ACA, users are being forced to buy a Palm Pilot with BMW prices. We're not talking about forms bugs here or misspellings. What's going on here is an epic fail. The White House also tried to hide how many pages are required in some of their forms by placing some of them in an "appendix". Clever they are.

People moan and complain about the MS monopoly. What about WordStar? WordPerfect Suite? OpenOffice? iWorks? There have been (and still are) other competitors but until they come up with a better experience, MS Office is the best of the lot. No doubt MS made use of undocumented API calls, but that's a story for another day.
I have seen beautifully detailed comparisons for vSphere 5.1 vs. Hyper-V 2012 that compare features in vSphere 5.1 with those enclosed in System Center 2012 but somehow forget to include the cost of System Center 2012 when it comes down to comparing apples to apples. Without SC 2012, you need to be a PowerShell wizard and rely on your scripting. I applaud Microsoft for forcing VMware to included shared-nothing live migration with ESX 5.1, but you must include the cost of SC 2012 in any sane comparison.
Nygren has made only one big mistake in the last 15 years and that was investing in Washington Mutual before the financial crash. It was the biggest mistake for Oakmark by far and it really took their legs out for a bit in 2009.. Otherwise, he is a steady-as-she-goes, buy-and-hold type of investor who has had a very good track record the last 15 years and more.
I have 350+ feeds and with this, was able to dump mailbox-clogging newsletters while having search access via the web and Android. I don't use Facebook and Twitter, either. This is the way to follow technical blogs, sports updates, etc. Not a complete surprise since they are already pulling the plug on iGoogle, but I am seriously bummed.
The Catholic Church very much believes in free will and seeking the truth. All the pope is trying to say here is that watching a DVD marathon of "The Wire" or reading the entire history of Sears, Roebuck, & Co. catalogs won't help someone perform open heart surgery.
There is much out there that is useful for living in our world but not for finding the meaning of life.
I can understand many bugs but I cannot understand leap year bugs (I'm looking at you, Microsoft) nor these date/time bugs that pop up on a regular basis in iOS. The way we account for time (except for DLST) hasn't changed in many, many years. I am not sure why Apple apps have trouble watching the clock.
If you use a GPO to lock out accounts after a short number of attempts, as many financial institutions do, then that will put an end to the outside cracking party. Of course, you perhaps just need the SAM file to hack it off-line. In that case, you'd sure as heck better trust your admins.
