Re: True story...
AOL, BT & Blueyonder install discs all used to routinely wipe ALL modem settings while adding their own if you used the installer on a mac so no surprises there.

That's the puppy, have you ever used live-meeting with ppt.
It's based on ppt 2007 engine so no unsupported shapes, (speech bubbles e.t.c) or custom fonts and it loads like a jpg in the 20th century all pixellating text and gradual sharpening which really fucks up an animation.
Get this to work and management teams the world over will be wetting themselves to use it.
This whole thing reminded me of my favourite quote from 2012
Rob Rachwald, director of security strategy at Imperva, commented: "The Bitcoin attack introduces an interesting paradigm: hackers hacking hackers may be more effective than direct law enforcement activity. Like a mafia war where criminals kill each other, law enforcement just sits back and sees who’s left." old Reg link
Made me re-read William Gibson's burning chrome so my guess is Bobby and russian icebreaker did their thing.
"Think of it this way. An upDATE is when your Missus gets you to buy a new suit and and upGRADE would be when she gets Brad Pitt in whatever clothes he's wearing. She may upDATE his clothes at some stage in the future or she might just be too pleased with the upGRADE to bother."
My missus would probably unDRESS Brad rather than upDATE but pretty sound analysis
oh is that the time...
I wonder why the need for this, could it be that they break ALL the time.
we had 2x dell laptops for testing websites and presentations for a company i worked for and both needed new motherboards, one within 6 months and the other the week after the warranty expired.
I've had one day of downtime with my MacPro since 2008 when a power unit went, had a new one shipped next day, I fitted it in 10 minutes and then carried on working.
I'll be giving it a year before getting my darth dustbin to avoid beta-testing so April shipping is no biggie to me.
even though their part of "Team Register" is to go get coffee every morning for the actual paid employees of El Reg.
I always assumed El Reg was an "infinite monkeys with typewriters in the backroom" kind of place with a randomiser as front-end. I never thought people getting paid played any part.

Stephen Fry has never claimed to be any sort of guru
He was big mates with Douglas Adams at the start(ish) of the whole apple thing, they were both obsessed with the tech of the time and Stephen dusts off his fanboi credentials every new launch.
Just an amiable guy who likes his macs – i've never heard him claim to be a computer boffin
When email could handle a 1mb attachment the floppy was dead, steve saw it, then everyone else did, after a load of bullshit dissing of course.
When Phone development could handle a decent OS & GUI steve built one, then everyone else did the same, after a load of bullshit dissing of course.
Then laptop development reached a stage where you could go light and breezy, guess what happened next?
Great advice, to add my tuppenceworth If you need a company logo (perhaps to create a business card whilst pretending to be a rep), forget all the 'brands of the world' nonsense and search for a PDF from the company's website. Most are created using indesign and contain .eps or .ai vector logos which can be very easily ripped out and repurposed.
As a cynical appletard (nice terminology) who uses (virtual) PC's all day everyday and MS Office for a living I am glad that my clients are big corporates who will migrate to 8 in a few years if it's ever fixed (they all skipped vista). I'd just like to say that It looks like a fisher price operating system to me and i'm sure kids everywhere will just love it..

<blockquote>You hate petty people yet complain about anonymous posters. Good one - a handle is much more informative. What losers started these trends of crying about anonymous posts and downvotes anyway?</blockquote>
Wankers the lot of them, I presume that people realise that comments are searchable from outside the hallowed hall of El Reg land and A/C is sometimes the only option to comment without it being held against you in a job interview plod-search scenario.
