My phone (HTC One X+) has only ever received ONE update in all the time i have had it (pushed by O2) & that was roughly 4yrs ago. Just checked and it says its "up to date"..... Hmmm.

I've fitted more batteries to it than its had updates!

They're BAAACK: Windows 10 nagware team loads trebuchet with annoying reminders to GTFO Windows 7

So am I

Given that XP is also still getting patch tues updates( if you tell wupdates its a 'kiosk') i doubt very much that updates will be ending for W7 any time soon..... This is just more from the M$ data slurping (W10) marketing team

Barclays (and prob many more) use W7 in their Human Cashier replacements....

How do i know this? I crashed one once & it rebooted - wasn't even W7 embedded!

"Making marketing calls to people who are registered with the TPS is completely unacceptable, and we will take robust enforcement action against firms that are contacting people without their consent," said ICO enforcement manager Andy Curry.

Unless they call internationally and or spoof the number, or hang up, or refuse to identify themselves etc etc..... which most of em do.

Disabling UPnP completely isn't such a bad idea

Enterprise Windows 10 users, Microsoft has some 'quality' patches coming your way

Widnows 10 "Enterprise" LOL

There is only one 'Enterprise' version of Windows 10 & that's the rocking-horse-poo LTSB version

That's as close as i'll ever get to Win10

Skype Classic headed for the chopping block on September 1

Ramis101

People still use Skype?

People still use Skype? and i mean voluntarily not foisted on them by 'management'

Skype is a perfect example of an excellent idea, bought out by corporate greed & then totally fsked up. I dropped out around V4ish whenever it was they totally fricked with the UI. never looked back as there are many non-M$ VoIP solutions available. some even work too!

Consumers are dumb

800 Quid for a phone with a swanky new camera. Madness

Lets see, for around 50 quid you can have a Nokia 'dumb' phone with a battery that lasts best part of a MONTH between charges and if you really do want to take pictures of everything not far north of a hundred quid will get you a very reasonably point & click camera featuring many many pixels & half-decent optics.

The only reason to integrate a phone & a camera is so you can instantly send stupid pictures to you mates on twit/book/chat/verse or whatever.

You want it all? You want it all crammed into a 5mm thick form factor, you wanna pay 800 notes for it & don't care that if you drop it its fucked. Go ahead moron!

Mad March Meltdown! Microsoft's patch for a patch for a patch may need another patch

Re: Useless bastards

I turned off Wupdates yonks ago. They break more than they fix.

Don't use IE,

Do use No-script, addblock and a 3rd party firewall

and all will be well

If MS had just stuck to Win 7.....

PC sales would be ticking along just nicely IMHO.

I couldn't stand it from day 1, that's why i ran XP with "Classic Shell" so it looked like the uncluttered, efficient interface of Windows 2000. I do the same with 7 also
