Firefox doesn't need to be No 1 – and that's OK, 'cos it's falling off a cliff

Michael Habel

Golly geee

Do they still think that hijacking the Homepage, New Tab, and removing the old style Download list was a great idea? In any case I can deal with the new Download Tool. But, forcing their crap Homepage on Mobile with absolutely no PC Standard way to simply set this back to https://www.google.com. was more than enough reason to abandon that Browser.

Met Police laggards still have 18,000 Windows XP machines in use

XP in >2017? Really?

It's slowly getting to a point where Insurance Companies should void any claims made by those who are too ignorant to understand why you don't run a Six-teen Year old in production. Also in the event of the lose, or outright theft of private User Data, due to such ignorance should be fined out of existence. If only to be made an example of.

You should have opted for a dumb (Lee's Snoopy TV, and got the Android Media Player a.k.a, the nVIDIA Shield TV instead. I love this Device dear, though it is a bit pricey.

Re: Inevitable

Implying that Windows (H)8, and Windows X are better than an unmaintained Windows XP SP3 Installation. Which can still do it's job. Probably better than those other Two numbskull OSs. Assuming Microsoft were kind enough to continue supporting it. But, alas that way only madness lay. As XP does not contain Tracker's, and (Cr)App Stores to take your Moneyz.

America 'will ban carry-on laptops on flights from UK, Europe to US'

Michael Habel

I wonder...

If this Ban is less about Passenger Safety, and more about containing those with Camera Phones sniping up all the recent, and likely as damaging drama that has taken place over the recent history?

No Camera Phones, no Facebook Viral Facebook Videos

No more bad press for said Airlines.

Seems like win win for them, as inconvenienced Business Travelers will still have to travel in as far as their Employers will allow them to. So I doubt they would take such a massive hit 'cause of this.

Perhaps it's time to wrap up the Ones you are currently playing and just jump ship. If you are only 1/16ths as valuable to Epic, EA Bethesda etc... They will get the message And push for Valve or their own Linux Service. Or in turn just go outta business. If your just gonna wait for these Companies to make the hard choice for you.

Re: Methinks MSFT (and some here) are taking this too seriously.

There is a flaw in your logic... Right minded People wouldn't think like that. Being reasonably adult minded persons.

The Progressive Left?! Not so much. Look how they rage over common sense things like Brexit, and Trump's Presidency. Nothing but Outrage, and Butthurt, from Sea to shining Sea.

New Windows 10 privacy controls: Just a little snooping – or the max

Michael Habel

Re: Or... no snooping at all

Not sure about the eidos stuff besides would a Software Package from '99 & 2000 even work on Win X? As for Adobe... I was under some impression that they had moved to this place called the HTML5 Cloud. So why wouldn't it not work on *nix?

Amazon files patent for 'Death Star' flying warehouse

Michael Habel

Yeah... No! If anything they should use this BEELLIONS to further Mechanize thier outfit, and sack the last useless Meatsack standing. Like MickyD's have been doing with those Touchscreen Order Pads that some Stores have now. This is how you deal with those Living Wage Freaks! Perhaps next time you might be able to work your way, up to a real Job that pays something closer to what you want.

But, as it pertains to your 15$(USD), Burger flipper Position, yeah good luck with that! Cause I'm not gonna support that sh-- by purchasing, (What was a 4.95€ Burger with Fries, and Cola), a 7.98€ Meal. Just so baby can keep its first Entry Level Position.

With the exception of the Master Race...

Is there even a reason to use Windows anymore? For crap like this, I find that my Tablet is more than enough to get the Job done. And for the rest of it a Linux based PC does everything else (Compile Builds, or GIMP, and Krita for my Graphic Photoshoop needs).

Plus the fact that's free, as Beer, and I have greater control over my own Personal System. Both of which you lack on any Windows, but with Windows X doublly so. But, even if you are some Master Race Freek. Why would you want to use Win X for?

The Life and Times of Lester Haines

Michael Habel

With all the memes about how 2016 need to end...

It really needs to end now... So many Stars have fallen from the Sky, and the World is so much darker now. Mr. Haines was perhaps along with Mr Travaglia were the original voices that have attracted me to this Site since the late 90s. With their writing styles.

As far as I concerned he was Mr. Register, and I'm left to wonder if it'll be up to Mr. Orlowski to pick up the regins now?

Kotkin: Why Trump won

Michael Habel

Re: ID

Voting is a right, not a privilege..

Michael Habel

Re: It's not "why", it's "how"

the US electoral college announcing Trump as President elect, but then choosing Clinton as actual President early next year.

In theory at least, there isn't anything to stop an Elector from casting his (or her), own vote with, or without the blessing of his (or her), Constituents. Other then possibly inciting some major butthurt on the nation.

But this part of the Electoral College is IMHO, a complete historical anachronism, that should probably just go. To put it in as simplistic terms as possible. Think of the Electoral Voters as Absentee Snail Mails, and the US Capital as the Polling Station. Which is exactly how it was designed to work some 200 years ago, before the advent of say the Telefon, Radio, 24h News, and the Internet.
