Why don't you just root your phone afterwards?

I'm running Nougat on my old phones. Just saying.

Dungeons & Dragons finally going digital

You have entered a very dark room.

You see

* An orange turd

* A may bee

* A bunch of anti Brexit MPs who have voted for Brexit

* An angry Scottish leader who wants to go North

* A Fromage

* An idiot who called a referendum once.

What shall I do?

GO NORTH

Sorry Brexit is Brexit.

What shall I do?

Gordon Bennett you took your time rolling out this story didn't you El Reg? If it was an Apple update you would have been hot on the heals. If it was a Microsoft story you would have had a preprepared coffin ready to roll out. Was there a forced Windows 10 update going on?

Re: "Where every customer is a perpetual unpaid beta tester."

Oh I see. Silly me I should disable group policy immediately and get on with complaining, beta testing and down voting like the rest of you, even though the facility is there. My bad. It's working for me just fine but somehow I must be mistaken or wrong.

"Where every customer is a perpetual unpaid beta tester."

Not every customer. I set group policy in Pro 10 to delay these updates by six months. In my world I won't be seeing this update for quite a little while, so thanks to the rest of you who are beta testing this for me!!

WTF?

Re: Hmm

@Dan Paul With guns, more kids and toddlers kill people by accident than terrorists do on purpose. Gun crime on US soil 30 times bigger than UK as a percentage of the population. Oh and it says on the 2nd amendment guns should be well regulated. Excuses excuses.

Pull back. Nothing to see. Just another Republican freak who's forgotten to read that bit that says "well regulated" in his 2nd amendment.

Hulk Hogan's sex tape, a Silicon Valley billionaire, and a $10m revenge plot to destroy Gawker

They didn't really kill the News of the world. It was just sleepong. As soon as it closed Murdoch registered "The Sun on Sunday' as a domain name. A while later we got a "new" paper. It was a strategy to wriggle out of a bad climate, nothing more.

Scavengers!! These people have jobs and will get to work away from home without seeing their family for months. They may work hard at least they have a job!! And it's a global economy so they should embrace losing their jobs overseas!!

In the meantime Verizon is only worth about $130 billion. They can barely afford to pay for Yahoo. The boss is only getting $20 million. Trickle down economics will hopefully mean he will at least get a pay rise he truly deserves. The only reason they aren't making more is because of too much regulation in the market!
