They are now bundling a piece of adware called 'Positive Finds' with their new PC's, it was pre installed on a desktop PC we bought off them two weeks ago.

We bought a Lenovo desktop PC about 2 weeks ago for a new user in our offices. As soon as we installed our antivirus on the machine, it started flagging up that Internet Explorer was infected with a piece of adware called 'Positive Finds'. It seems they are still sending out infected PC's. Steer well clear.
This whole thing wreaks of a paid review. No criticsm for the horrendouse DLC prices or the fact you are locked out of half the game until you drop a furthur $40 on top of the asking price. I think it's current metacritc score says it all. All the major publications have given it rave reviews, and all the user reviews are sub 4/10.
They should have maybe called this game Deceive instead
Be interesting to see how they intend to cover music and movies that you actually own on cd, dvd, bluray etc, that you are legally allowed to own a digital copy of, regardless of where you downloaded it from. How can they distinguish between people who have bought and and people who haven't? especially for older movies. I can understand films and music that are yet to be released to the public, such as movies currently at the cinema and stuff, but we are legally allowed to own a digital copy of music cd's we buy, it really doesn't matter if that copy was downloaded off the pirate bay or not if you own a physical copy does it?
I take it The Reg haven't seen the automatic model they've built that's already been taken off their site then...
Really are missing the point here with all these articles, the reason it's been taken down is because anybody with the money to buy a 3D printer and toner can produce a working gun that can kill somebody. Saying 'oh the accuracy is terrible' is beside the point, these things can still kill people and could be very easily concealed. Grow up a bit please
I'll start believing our broadband is getting faster across the country when my upload speeds get above 600kbps (BT). It's ridiculous that in this day in age, the vast majority of the country without fiber internet can't even live stream a video game in HD. It's not like were not paying enough for these services to warrant the up in speed! I'm paying for the fastest possible speeds I can get for my area, which is in the middle of a city where you'd think the speeds would be best, nope! BT are offering fiber internet for the same price as i'm paying for my normal broadband and it's not even available, this is about 2 years after they said they were installing the cable in my area!
"And you will need some sort of card: the phone has just 8GB built-in for OS, apps and media, and the Windows 8 Phone OS takes up well over 2GB out of the box. Once the Nokia Maps are accounted for that leaves just 5GB free."
What a crazy world we live in where having 5GB free space on your mobile phone is considered 'not enough'
So let me get this right, NOTW had numerous people hacking peoples phones for private messages and creating storys in their paper. But one guy hacks Selena Gomez's facebook account and gets a full year in jail. If these people dont get 4-5 years in jail the justice system is all kinds of screwed.
