Palliative care for Windows 10 Mobile like a Crimean field hospital, but with even less effort

JuJuBalt

It's interns running a lot of important ms tech nowadays

Python joins movement to dump 'offensive' master, slave terms

JuJuBalt

Now you are discriminating against communists and the Irish.

"The UK Government has found it difficult to understand that if one stops being a member of a club, one loses access to that club’s facilities."

And if rather than just "hiring" the Gym you actually paid to construct part of your Gym's building and the equipment you reckon they should keep it all then ?

Git365. Git for Teams. Quatermass and the Git Pit. GitHub simply won't do now Microsoft has it

AWS won serverless – now all your software are kinda belong to them

JuJuBalt

AWS is the biggest cobbled together mess I've ever seen

Great Scott! Bitcoin to consume half a per cent of the world's electricity by end of year

The should invent a new coin called s--e-x coin who value is based on all the energy consumed during rumpy pumpy

Microsoft programming chief to devs: Tell us where Windows hurt you

JuJuBalt

She is clueless....does the right hand talk to the left hand.....UWP is all XAML based and they were happy to have that on mobile before...so WPF is just the father of that....and the new Fluent UI in Windows is mainly XAML based....and now a more adaptive layout with the concept of "compact", or "expanded" layout modes. Heck, XAML has had the ability to adapt to different environments from day one...it's just they never pushed the concept or design it in, to make it easy and consistent to do. Cross plat UI is the thing that can save a million hours of wasted dev hours battling with disparate frameworks, and other kludges.

They've been asleep for 6 years lol.

UK Home Office tiptoes back from slurping immigrants' NHS files

JuJuBalt

A sign that immigrants are pulling the puppet strings of politicians hearts.

Apple leak: If you leak from Apple, we'll have you arrested, says Apple

JuJuBalt

Has it only just dawned on people that the 1984 advert was a sign of things to come in the shape of Apple.

UK.gov expected to quit controversial harvesting of schoolchildren's nationality data

JuJuBalt

Surely it's worthwhile to figure out how much of the educational resources are wasted/I mean redirected to support children from other originating countries.

Microsoft's Windows supremo Terry Myerson is now Terry BYE-rson

Re: How many reorgs is that, since Nadella took the reins?

The entire problem is to do with people (as ever it was in business).....you have 2 camps of people....the oldies, that are fixed in their ways, and stick to what they know i.e. using WIN32, writing in C++, assembler, etc.....or the "young" hip people, that are fixed in their ways of using just web technology, and have little experience in the low level nuts and bolts involved in an operating system etc. They need people in the middle ground that know the ENTIRE stack, from top to bottom....I would guess they have very few people like that, that. And there lies the problem...you get projects, and people trying to defend and promote their own camps, rather than promote what is the best technology to create a reliable and innovative product. Thus you get silly things like neglecting desktop development, because web is the cool thing to do, and you get arbitrary engineering decisions. Then you have the wars between the camps within camps like DevDiv and WinDev.....WinDev don't feel like it is their responsibility to provide services underneath to absolutely nail NET performance...or act as an actual barrier to enabling DevDiv to do it themselves - for example....a "native" low level garbage collecting memory system service.

Oh dear, Mr l33t speak (Nada) is going to churn out all the alternative voices.

Happy as Larry: Why Oracle won the Google Java Android case

JuJuBalt

That's right, swap performance on the CPU, or reduced developer performance.

No, Stephen Hawking's last paper didn't prove the existence of a multiverse

JuJuBalt

He didn't prove anything, they were just theories that everyone chose to accept.

Breaking up is hard to do: Airbus, new bae Google and clinging on to Microsoft's 'solutions'

JuJuBalt

So where are they supposed to store it ?....on printouts?....on dropbox?....god forbid....copied to their hotmail/google accounts?

JuJuBalt

I wonder what Google "gets" out of it.

They will up there game by only supporting an ios version 1 generation back.

A computer file system shouldn't lose data, right? Tell that to Apple

Re: A former Microsoft boss defends Apple

Ballmer once yelled: Developers, developers! Today it would be: Docs! Support! Certificates!

Re: OMG, Monkey Boy

.NET was a response to Java...to make sure Microsoft had a foot in at least a comparable space. The WIN32 API is a hodge podge of separate APIs with different rules, different error handling, etc, etc. It's nice and low-level, but that's precisely why you had to have the MFC layer on top to actually work in an object oriented way.

Sack the Xerox CEO 'immediately', yell activist investors

JuJuBalt

Dummy....pram.

Meltdown, Spectre bug patch slowdown gets real – and what you can do about it

JuJuBalt

Does this make ZIPing/RARing especially slow?

Credit insurance tightens for geek shack Maplin Electronics

JuJuBalt

Do retail insurers EVER pay out?...it seems they have plenty of "notice" to cut the cover....and are running off laughing all the way to the back with the previously paid premiums....AND to make matters worse, their actions expedite the demise of the party they were covering.

How much will Britain's next F-35s cost? Not telling, says MoD

JuJuBalt

Knowing our muppets....they will buy A's but still pay the higher B price tag.

Hello, Dixons Carphone? Yep, we're ringing from a 2015 handset. Profits down 60%, eh?

JuJuBalt

Have they thought, maybe just maybe 3 into 1 doesn't go....it might save money on rental...but do the in-house stores get the same real footfall - a lot of the the small Carphone Warehouse stores, were noiseless, highly focussed, and you could be dealt with quickly.

Beardy Branson chucks cash at His Muskiness' Hyperloop idea

JuJuBalt

Isn't this what he does with all the things he invests in?...namely stick the Virgin name on something...but get all his investment back in name licencing fees.

Ignite: Microsoft drops veil on Honolulu, releases SQL Server on Linux into the wild

JuJuBalt

If they had had Scott Guthrie on the phone/mobile development then it would have turned to gold....everything he touches turns to gold....even then the meddling CEO's can disrupt things.

'We think autonomous coding is a very real thing' – GitHub CEO imagines a future without programmers

JuJuBalt

In the future their will be no jobs whatsoever.

Microsoft's foray into phones was a bumbling, half-hearted fiasco, and Nadella always knew it

JuJuBalt

Nadella is playing a dangerous game. He's betting on the cloud income, and office to be enough to keep the money rolling in....but with no presence in the mobile space, well that is a huge chunk to give up in influencing. Remember, he isn't consumer focused AT ALL, just a grey suit (and oodles of management speak that makes you want to go to sleep).

Oracle promises ‘highly automated’ security in self-driving database

JuJuBalt

Re: "Ellison said it would automatically provision, patch,..."

Easy...they got to sell you "documentation"/"help" that no one else could copy/use....training courses (directly or indirectly)....or failing that consultancy services.
