No, not The Who, The Beatles
http://whatsmyos.com/ has gone a bit overboard on identifying Windows. As they mention a few times, to find out what windows version you're on you use winver in the run box. The run box is accessed using the Windows+R shortcut. This works for all versions of windows from 95/NT 4 on (winver is also available on earlier versions of windows but the run shortcut isn't), the rest of the methods provided are redundant.
uname -a on the other hand only tells you the kernel you are running. e.g. on ubuntu I can find out I'm running ubuntu but not that I'm running 16.04. I'm not saying that Windows has an especially consistent GUI, it doesn't, Windows 10 isn't even consistent with itself, but finding out what version of windows you're running is easy and has been the same for over 20 years.
If you configure your devices in work-managed device mode then it only has the apps you push.
Our devices have about 20 apps in the Google Play store, nothing else is available. The only apps there by default are the browser and the dialler. Everything else, maps, email, SMS etc. has to be specifically approved by the MDM administrator.
It's quite nice to see a brand new Android load up without any of the non-removable pre-installed rubbish.
Anybody who's been to a cricket match or similar large event fuelled by beer will be familiar with the machines that pour 4 beers at a time into plastic cups.
No tilting of the glass required as the nozzle reaches to the bottom of the cup.
At the end of 2014 Manchester International Festival announced they had commissioned a VR film collaboration between Brian Cox (the physicist) and Kevin MacDonald to be exhibited at the 2015 festival. It all sounded quite interesting until I saw who the technology partner was. There's a great quote from the time from the festival Head,
“I think it is the most ambitious thing we’ve ever taken on simply because a significant element of it doesn’t exist"
Didn't exist then, doesn't exist now, won't exist ever and people still give them money.
"management of all the Sapphire assets from remote desktops or tablets"
Pass the ipad, I just need to order a book on Amazon, check the footy scores and update the configuration of the London air traffic control radios.
Makes sense to me.
This and, "hi just ringing to see if you want to place an order on that quote I sent you half an hour ago"
If I want to place an order I've got your details, I had them when I asked you for the quote.
Most Cinema screens are still only 2K. Even the big Imax digital screens are only 2 2K projectors stacked.
No films are shot at 8K and even when shot at 6K they only have a 4K DI. The only films from the past that are going to benefit from 8K are ones shot on 65mm film and even then only when the lighting was perfect and the film has been kept in pristine condition.
The me too fascination with 2:1 ratio screens has meant the fingerprint sensor has moved to the back of the phone. I think this is a shame, being able to unlock the phone whilst it's lying on a desk, or held in a cradle in the car, with one touch is incredibly useful.
£25 is OK for 24 hours notice but if an engineer just doesn't turn up I'd want the same £129.99 Openreach would charge me if I didn't show up. Chances are I've taken all or part of a day off of work to wait in.
From the crowd funding page this projector is
350 Ansi lumens
projects a 180" image (I'm assuming diagonal not 180" wide) from 4.4m (their mix of metric and imperial measurments) so throw ratio is about 1.1
4 hour max batery life sounds like it will be capable of showing a film from a full charge for about 6 months.
Trying to throw a 180" image using a 350 lumen projector is going to be crap. I'd suggest this projector is probably useful up to about 90" diagonal in a pitch black room. It probably looks good at around 50" in a situation with some ambient light.
I'm not saying it isn't good at what it does, just that 180" is pie in the sky.
If the AI had access to the script then the clues would be present. A script isn't just the dialogue.
Also I'm guessing that CSI contains a lot of exposition with characters walking around explaining the plot.
Also I think that the human testers would also just be reading the script rather than being forced to watch episodes of CSI.
When the Lumia 950 came out I tried out the face unlock. It seemed pretty cool until you realise you have to hold the phone closer to your face than you would in regular use and very quickly I turned it off and went back to using a PIN. I'm sure the iPhone X is better than the Lumia, it's a much newer more sophisticated system but it looks to have the same basic flaws (wrong kind of light, holding it wrong etc.)
Even if they work these problems out it's never going to be as good as a fingerprint in some situations.
Apple pay, in the car when the phone is in a holder and when the phone is on your desk at arms length. I've not used Apple's fingerprint reader but I'm assuming it's as quick as the one on my OP5, in that case everyone who upgrades from the 7 to the X are going to be very dissapointed with this aspect of the phone.
That's a list of group policies. It's not possible to enable the feature using group policy on Windows Home. You have to go into the settings and flick the switch.
The prompt unlock requires a screen lock to be enabled on the phone so a thief needs to be able to defeat that.
This is better than SMS where the thief can move the sim card to another phone to receive the 2FA code.
"To be honest I doubt it is possible to get 300k miles on one."
Not sure about the Mk1 but certainly the 3 and 4 it's tricky to tell just how far it's gone without a study of the MOT history since the odometer only goes to 99999 then resets back to 0. I don't think Ford expected people to be driving 300K miles.
"I can run Satnav for 10 hours solid and still have 30" battery left).."
Is that 30 inches or 30 seconds?
ADSL2+ is still available. I think all ADSL is now provided using ADSL2+ even if it's limited to 8Mbps. The reason the up to 24Mbps connections dissappeared is that it was only achievable in very specific circumstances. You had to be practically sitting in the exchange to get that speed.
Also marketing, most people can get 40 or 80 on VDSL now so there's no need to try and market your ADSL as 24Mbps anymore because you can offer a faster service on VDSL.
The latest versions of 6.0 and 6.5 don't require flash they have an all html5 client.
I prefer to use the fat client for anything that still works.
snipping tool is what you need for taking screenshots. It's there on all supported versions of windows. It has built in tools for drawing on the screenshots. The newest versions added delayed activation so you can capture tooltips or menus in your screenshots, and lasso selection for ... not sure I've never wanted a badly hand drawn circular snapshot.
Outlook anywhere is in 2010, not sure about 2007. No MAPI (MAPI) is a programming interface. I'm guessing you mean RPC over HTTPS. It doesn't use that either though. Outlook anywhere doesn't support any kind of 2FA (as far as I know). Outlook anywhere is very convenient, but it's not particularly secure as it's only protected by a password. If you're using Outlook you should use a VPN.
"MAPI/RPC is the protocol used by older Outlook clients"
RPC is the protocol, MAPI is a programming interface. Outlook shouldn't be connecting directly to exchange over the Internet, there should be a VPN involved.
"a certificate is NOT 2FA, it's too easy to proxy."
Not sure I follow you. The server holds the public key, client holds the private key. This key pair is unique to the user/client combination. If the device is lost/compromised the key is revoked. How does a proxy affect this?
The point here is that you can force some form of 2FA for all email users. If you say you can't because you need to support xyz crappy outdated client then you don't have a secure system. Security vs usability is always a balancing act. If you're the government you should probably be tipping the scales towards security
I access my gmail over imap and I have 2FA enabled. You don't access email over SMTP. MAPI is a programming interface. EAS can be secured using certificates thereby making the device the something you have.
Sounds like missing 2FA and no lockouts for incorrect attempts. It's quite hard to brute force passwords if you're only allowed 3 attempts. Or 1 attempt every 15 minutes.
dodgeball.com (the service bought by Google and turned into Latitude) was doing the location based interaction stuff in 2000
Haven't got a 1703 system here but on Windows 1611 it's still possible.
Shift+right click the application on the taskbar and show side by side/stacked
You can also use Windows+Left or Windows+Right or drag the windows to the edge of the screen to snap a window to half a screen. Windows 10 now also then lets you choose which open window to snap to the other half.
I think this monitor would be good if it wasn't 1. too expensive, 2. lacking vertical resolution.
If you're writing a document like this why would you be copying the screenshots from your production DB? You should be going through the dev process step by step so the screenshots should be from your dev environment.
I can understand the M6, most of it goes through unpopulated countryside. The M60 is only 80%? I would've expected over 90%. All of the provider coverage maps show 100%. This implies that you can only get a 4G signal 80% of the time when you're in a 4G area.
Wow, did you miss the point of what I was saying much?
Desktop bridge lets you take w32 apps and deploy them through the store. It doesn't turn them into UWP apps. It's just a way for Microsoft to try and skim their 30% off of more windows apps. If anything desktop bridge makes things worse there is now almost no incentive to create UWP apps.
If Microsoft wanted UWP to take off then they should've released it as a runtime for Windows 7. Nobody is going to bother writing any UWP apps whilst they still have to build an equivalent win32 app for 7.
e.g. Spotify, there is a Windows Phone app but it's terrible. Spotify could build a UWP that would work across xbox, desktop, tablet and phone but the market share for platforms other than desktop is so small that there's no point when they need to still build a win32 app. Same with Kindle, BBC iplayer etc.
ipads are easy to lock down as long as you have them enroled in DEP. That way it doesn't matter what the kids do to them the restrictions can't be removed. Even if they hook the device up to a computer and use iTunes to wipe it. It boots back up connects to your MDM and sets itself back up again.
This sounded slightly mad to me too. If Lexmark want to sell cheap cartridges in return for receiving the empties back then they should ship or sell the new cartridges once they receive the returns. Trying to tie customers to some sort of contract by writing something on the pack isn't going to stand up.
"Personally I "enjoy" printing out pictures of my kids. I say "enjoy" because it comes at a price."
The cost of maintaining a printer for this kind of printing isn't worth it. I just use one of the myriad of online print services. They're using proper Fujifilm printers so you get an actual photograph which won't fade like an inkjet print. The cost isn't any higher than printing at home, once you've factored in replacing dried up cartridges that you haven't used for a couple of months and the multiple prints you have to do because you set the wrong colour profile or you loaded 7x5 paper when you wanted 6x4 etc.
FM = Full audio bandwidth with no compression (except as found on the source media).
Pretty sure FM is only 30Hz-15KHz
Microsoft aren't bringing back anything here.
What they're doing is adding the start screen tile folders from Windows Phone that have been on Windows phone since 8.1
Folders on the start menu for shortcuts already exist. I think they came back in 1607 or maybe even 1511.
Doesn't even need a takedown request. You just adjust your robots.txt and it's gone.
According to winver.exe Windows 10 had version number 10.0, the Windows 10 update had version number 1511, the anniversary update has version number 1607. Those are pretty big leaps.
I think in the background though the current version number is 10.0.14393.576
The release version of 7-zip went from 9 to 15 but that's still not as big a jump as Linux flash.
To use the UWP office apps to edit documents on a screen larger than 8" requires an office 365 subscription. Is that the case with this too?
If so then I can't see the benefit. Any windows laptop has access to the office apps and you can use your 365 license across your iPad, android phone, desktop and laptop.
Also, docking with the laptop part is via miracast or USB cable, this doesn't sound like much of a "dock" to me. I was expecting some kind of slot that the phone fitted in to. You can buy a decent laptop and a Lumia 950XL for the same price as this package and it will do more stuff, including allowing you to use your phone from your laptop (if for some weird reason that is something you want to do).
"3. All the video output was Thunderbolt. Stuff that, we had very nice monitors on display port."
The video carried by thunderbolt is display port. It even uses the same connectors.
It's not mentioned in the reg article but the Trend blog clearly states the devices will be fully patched.
Who is going to pay £700 for a Windows 10 phone? Microsoft can't sell them for £350.
This wouldn't fix anything. A compromised database will almost certainly include the email address alongside the username and anybody who is reusing passwords across sites will also be reusing usernames.
I think all DVB encryption systems are card based. The original idea being that you bought a DVB receiver with a CAM slot. Then you bought a CAM for the particular encryption system your provider was using which would accept the card from your provider. The system Sky uses ties the card to the box so each card can only be used in that box and the encryption is customised so only a Sky box can be used rather than any DVB-S receiver with a CAM. Not sure why the card is used rather than embedding the technology for the card into the box itself.
Most mass market phones are Dual SIM outside of Europe/USA. Within Europe/USA the network operators don't like them getting sold so the manufacturers build models without for those markets.
I think both Slots generally support 3G for voice and SMS, in some phones only slot 1 can be used for data but a lot can use either slot for data. This is certainly the case for Lumia phones and I'd imagine Androids will be the same.
"I don't need to pay for it again to some streaming provider."
Totally agree, or indeed need to pay the phone manufacturer £100 for some flash which I can buy for £20.
"And all USB C devices are USB3. I have yet to see a blue USB C tab."
Not all USB-C devices are USB 3, they could be 2.0, 3.0 or 3.1
I'm with you on the blue USB-A plugs/sockets though. My surface pro 2 has a solitary USB 3 port coloured black. I have a Lenovo with red and yellow USB 3 ports.
"If I understand correctly, the dongles you can currently buy for USB (various flavours) to HDMI are effectively graphics cards in a cable and need a driver."
Not for USB-C they're not. I think they're using the display port over USB-C with a DP to HDMI adapter.
