Uber won't face criminal charges after its robo-car killed woman crossing street

Windows8

Bullshit Bullshit Bullshit Uber is liable this is the candy ass court system protecting another big company and new market. The driver should have been aware this system was deactivated yet Uber isn't liable and now they want to go after the employee? Wtf is going on here...this industry needs to regulated before more citizens take flight when the autonomous wheels go whack whack at your knees.

Secret mic in Nest gear wasn't supposed to be a secret, says Google, we just forgot to tell anyone

Windows8

Screw Google they make 90s/2000s Microsoft look like a Saint... Why are they not in check yet this sort of practice should be illegal who made this "mistake" and why aren't they being fined along with Google. When people make mistakes they pay the price by being run through the system why are these turds off limits!

Microsoft's in-store Android looks desperate but can Google stop it?

Windows8

Sign me up for the MS Rom...google can pass off!

Re: Unwanted Microsoft Experience

Because Google is less invasive? Hmmm

Uber's Boston T party – and T is for taxi: City's cabbies sue app maker

Windows8

F! Uber! I disliked mosr of my Taxi experiences but Uber should be forced to play by the same rules.

What's losing steam at Apple? Pretty much everything

Windows8

Mobile is starting to show its age...sales are slowing because the excitement is dead. Even a $50 phone can do a lot why pump hard earned money into a new phone each year without any gain?

Big Cable threatens to sue FCC: You can't stop us ripping off customers

Windows8

I have this thing called an Xbox One and it's more powerful than any set top box available today including Roku and Apple TV. Let MS open it to TV and beyond...i promise to watch more TV andI might actually enjoy it.

Apple stuns world with Donald Trump iPhone

Windows8

This event and it's products were/are weak! I'm sure the sheep will eat it as they always do but I'm doing just fine without Apple in my life. I also enjoy my SP4 because tiny isn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea.

We tried using Windows 10 for real work and ... oh, the horror

Windows8

Been using 10 since day one. BUGS ASIDE IN EARLY builds I'm as productive as my days on Win 7, 8 or 8.1.

HELP! Windows Phone update 8.1 broke my Lumia

Windows8

If the fix doesn't come soon maybe win 10 will have it. Look at the bright side there are a number of android users that experience resource issues or odd behavior that requires a restart. IPhone users have their fair share of strange behavior too. My teens have the iPhone 5 and 6 and have power cycled as well.

Microsoft just saved Windows Phone... Now stop whining

Windows8

Well, there are still millions who trust google about as much as a US Senator and Apple feels like an over acted movie I know I fall into this category. I'm excited for a new flagship device on WP10. App gap means squat to me, I prefer the browser l, the games I do play are in PC or Xbox and I'm perfectly fine with it.

Windows8

As for Chase bank, they are crooks along with most American banks. Their app won't be missed, besides IE lets you do everything on the web page why do we need a limited app to bank?

DAMN YOU! Microsoft blasts Google over zero-day blabgasm

Windows8

Google is/are a bunch of pricks! The trust end-users place in the security of their data stored on a local system or cloud is sacred. We want to use our computers/devices and we want the data to be secure from prying eyes unless we decide to share it openly and willingly. Google crossed a line, corporations shouldn't sell one another out in hopes of stealing market share. Unfortunately this is a dirty tactic by Google and MS will likely retaliate at some point. I dont want the place holder of my data fighting with another entity for my dollars. Especially if they are willing to cut each others throats to make a few dollars. Google you suck! You will Never Ever earn a penny from the hard earned money I make. I will stick with Redmond, tried, true and clearly looking out for the best interest of consumers.

Nokia to launch low-cost Android phone this month – report

Windows8

Re: Oh Dear!

If they went with Android they'd be HTC and only running on 2% of the worlds smart phones. With MS they have a chance...with android they would just be another name playing second fiddle to Samsung.

Windows8

Since when has WP become a resource hog? This OS runs very well on a single core with 512MB. I can't imagine one can say the same for Android. That POS requires you to live in the task mgr just to manage efficiency across the entire phone experience.

Amazon floats 'Prime Air' drone delivery plan

Windows8

That's just what we need

a bunch of autonomous bots flying all over the place wait until one get's hijacked and bombs start falling from the sky. Do we really need a bunch of bots zipping over our heads? If it flies over my airspace it will meet a bullet!

XBOX ONE ROUNDUP-of-the-ROUNDUPS: Everything YOU need to know

Windows8

Regardless of what reviews have to say

I'm all in. If there's one thing I've learned about reviews since the advent of social networking and blogs, most authors can't resist the urge to be bias. Neutrality has seized to exist and they seek hits instead of fair product reviews.

Personally I look forward to the 22nd when I receive my XO, just as I did with Xbox and the 360. Launch titles are typically weak, but the games will improve as devs gain more exposure to the platform. I'm sure the voice controls have room to improve as well, but name one perfect voice solution that works flawlessly? They simply don't exist but they continue to improve. I have no qualms over a 1.5GB update... this means MS has continued to refine and improve the product prior to launch. If no update was available people would still complain.

New Retina iPad Mini not sold out HOURS after launch - world REELS

Windows8

When I woke up this morning I didn't give a crap about Apple or it's latest toys...5 hours later I still don't give a crap!

Google makes Gmail EVEN NOISIER, or should that be nosier?

Windows8

Instead of being worried about GMAIL users should switch to a friendlier service like Outlook.com or Yahoo Mail.

'F-CK YOU GOOGLE+' ukelele missy scoops BIG WAD of $$ - for Google

Windows8

GOOGLE F***S EVERYYONE AND EVERYTHING! How and why did it take everyone this long to realize Google makes the NSA look like a book club. Wake-up peeps the new tech world is more intrusive than ever...why did we think we had it bad with MS? They look like angels compared to Google!

Oooh! My NAUGHTY SKIRT keeps riding up! Hello, INTERNET EXPLORER

Windows8

Nice

I thought it was a fun commercial, I do enjoy anime and this was a nice spin for an IE ad.

iPad Air not very hot: Apple fanbois SHUN London fondleslab launch

Windows8

A little late to the game but

Apple once again announces and releases what you'd expect....a lighter, thinner device with a little more speed. Moores law can guarantee that with each new release. Apple's lost it's mojo and now's the time for Windows to show what it can do.

It's NOT an iPad - but that's FINE: I learned to LOVE Microsoft's Surface 2

Windows8

Nice, fair review...the only hit on this device is apps and at 100k and growing its not as bad as some make it out to be. Windows Store is just creeping up on 1 year so obviously the competition has a head start. Lets also not forget that a majority of apps available on other platforms are filler so as long as the core apps become available people will enjoy this device. 8.1 is a huge improvement over 8.0 which I find to be the best interactive mobile OS to date.
