Twas the week before Xmas ... not a creature was stirring – except Microsoft admitting its Windows 10 upgrade pop-up went 'too far'

Re: Microsoft has been getting it wrong with user interfaces

I dont get the downvotes...

I dont particularly have any issues with windows 10.. It works and all the software I use all works.

I have had less issues running windows 10 than any othe OS since windows7

yes, IT does have some annoyances, but not so many as would make me abandon ship and go with a linux desktop.

Re: It's called OS X

Some businesses have already tried apple in the past and where it falls down is with backwards compatibility.

A while back when a new version of the OS was released it broke some software that was very popular. (cant remember what it was or what version of mac os it was) apples official response was "upgrade the software to something else that works"

so for a business, that means more capital investment in the software, more expense in training users to use the new software and half the company using incompatible files with each other...

This is why windows will always dominate any serious office environment. its all down to the TCO and good support. And lets face it, any business who has the updates enabled need to sack the IT staff. Updates are only installed when said update has been tested with the companies core software.

'Pirate block' proposal back on Oz agenda

pɹɐʍoɔ snoɯʎuouɐ

and blocking works how?

They blocked TPB, but its still very accessable through proxies and a "Pirate Browser" that TPB has distributed themselves.

Blocking at ISP level is just an epic fail.

Smartphone running 'Facebook OS' said to debut this week

pɹɐʍoɔ snoɯʎuouɐ

and que the eletists that know it all....

the thing with this, is that if somebody plans on making a facebook phone then they believe there is a market for it.... and there probably is.....

there are a lot of people that buy expensive phones and all they do is go on facebook anyway, so why not produce a phone that just has all the functions of facebook and sell it cheap, if not give it away with a 18 month data tariff?

Its not something I would buy, but there are quite a few people that use facebook that I know would use this...

Facebook: Give us your credit card and pals' addresses as GIFTS

Thumb Down

Re: Could actually be quite handy

i do see your point that it could be a handy way to buy people gifts, but to be honest, If I dont know someone well enough to know their address, then I doubt I will be sending them any gifts.

Then there is the massive issue of stolen credit/debit cards buying gifts for people and delivered to addresses other than the card holders address....

then the other point is that i would not trust facebook to safely hold on to a bag of salted peanuts, never mind my credit/debit card details !! How long would it be until facebook suggested a product they think I would like and pay for it on my card....

Apple is granted a patent on the rectangle. No, really

glad really....

I am glad really that I dont live or work in the US of A where this patent means jack shit....

apple will push so hard with these stupid US patents that the amount of paper will become so densely packed in the US patent office that it will implode into its own gravity field creating a small black hole, just about big enough that its event horizon rests on the US boarders. in effect removing itself from the planet... sort of like a country wide "Darwin Award"

Let the rest of the world carry on with business as usual.....
