Re: Count the domains
For the Guardian I've had a count of well over a hundred when reading a longer article, it's appalling...as increasingly is some of their "journalism" these days.

Looks fresher and keeping the option to revert to menus is exactly what the zealots at MS should have done.
I've migrated to Office ribbons a few years ago but still need to occasionally delve around searching for stuff whereas it would be traditionally under a logical menu system. I'd like to move to LibreOffice permanently but there are still stoo many quirks unfortunately for business use and compatibility. Been trying to migrate permanently since it was the German owned StarOffice in the 90's !
That said, I've noticed that with the CSV file downloads from various banks Excel 36* doesn't correctly open / parse them, even when customising the field settings, whereas LibreOffice works flawlessly, so LibreOffice is set to be my CSV default programme. Hope to drop Office for LibreOffice one day...
Cook’s (il)logic is such that if sales drop another 20% then he’ll increase the price by 25%
I’ve never rated the man as CEO at all. Never rated St Ives nor Ms Burberry either. Collectively they’ve lost touch with the consumer market and completely screwed up with the pro market.
They’ve also completely ignored us SE and 5 users too, no product to replace our 4” devices for three years; feck you, you useless trio.
I’m loving see Buffet lose handsomely though; tosser.
It's "fuck" when humanity gets to the stage that it trusts a consumer product vendor to provide mission-critical information! It'll be just as "fuck" when we trust Apple or Google when they introduce self-drive cars; you just know it will not end well for too many unfortunate people.
Oh look...at the photos in the article: "Alongside an iPhone SE"
Yes, that's right, instead, for a mere £239 purchasing it outright, you could have bought a whole iPhone and it literally just "slightly larger!
An Phone SE with 4-inch Retina display, A9 chip, Touch ID, 12MP rear camera, 720 front camera, 4G LTE2, fast Wi-Fi, 32GB storage, 2+ day battery, etc, etc..
I fail to understand the purpose of this Palm as much as I fail to understand why people fork out £1000+ for an iPhone which they can by for a mere 20-25% of that.
Trump will surely ignore this demand.
It's clearly time for Europe to take back control. All EU subjects data should be held in the EU only...and owned by EU registered companies only. Period.
As Victoria once exclaimed loudly: "Fuck the EU". My retort is: "Fuck the US neo-fascists" (the very many decent US people are exempted from my insult).
Nah, it's brittle regulations which allow this mega corp to abuse its power even more.
Time overdue to seperate Google Chrome from the rest of the business and ban them from even launching their own browser. Same deal for MS and Apple - no browser ownership allowed, leave it to independent third parties.
I've been using Outlook for nearly 19 years and prior to that Notes. When I moved job and transferred from Notes to Outlook, I could not believe how poor Outlook was, not much better than Outlook Express yet with those awful .pst files and profiles that always became quickly corrupted. Not much better these days in terms of functionality nor stability..
Hope HCL can bring Notes up to date and finally give us a real alternative to the Outlook monopoly. While they are at it, would be great if they could brack Lotus Office too!
- No fingerprint ID
- No headphone socket
- ridiculous notch
- glass back, making it very fragile
- no longer the SE or 4" option who prefer to carry a phone in our pockets, and have something bigger in our trousers taking up more space.
- No longer a phone on the range retailing at £300 or less (SE)
That's just the phones! Another long list of where Macbooks have gone wrong.
Tim Nice But Dim is not the right man to lead the company. He's also let the arrogant tosser St Ives and Dame Burberry turn the company into producing impractical devices for shiny fashion victims in the consumer sector.
I think you are on the right track with this argument. Apple make devices and the OS is simply what enabled it to work and host Apps upon. If it breaks, then you take it back to manufacturer, same as any other household product. If you start to disasemble your TV or use another repairer, your warranty is invalid, why should Apple be any different in this respect?
Utter nonsense, configuration of a router requires significant technical knowledge that most people do not possess nor will they possess. To do it properly needs a lot of wider IT related knowledge too. It’s for manufacturers to be more responsible AND accountable.
The idea was that it’s better to reach out help bring the destitute former Communist countries up to a much higher standard, rather than left them fester in misery.
Meanwhile doing that was a pretty good insurance policy to avoid another destructive war in Europe since we’re all in the EU club.
The cost of mutual help is far less than fighting wars and rebuilding from them, that’s just in economic terms, but what about the human benefits.
Unfortunately sociopathic Brexteers can’t fathom this apparently.
10 year moratorium?
Yes, there WAS one agreed for Poland’s and Baltic States entry which Germany and other countries kept to but for which a certain country negotiated yet another get out clause; guess who?!
We invited them in straight away! Ireland too. It was good for business, remember?! Sod the other impacts.
We’ve had so many get out clauses, we’ve done excellently out of the EU, now we’re throwing it all away.
“We're a tiny little island with the 5th largest economy on the planet.”
Mainly thanks to the EU free trade zone.
Before we joined, the UK had become an economic basket case, on the verge of seeking an IMF bailout. Then we joined the EC and it’s transformed our country for the better.

Yep, you’ll get far with Jo Public with that workaround. Easier still, break their internet experience for them by using NoScript with no exclusions.
Everyone who doesn’t frig around with IT, ie the 99%, have no option but to rely upon their security software to do the job.
Linux is missing so many opportunities to eat into Windows because the distro communities are so utterly divided. Ubuntu tried but failed to become the distro of choice.
Mint is the best contender but until hoardes of developers from other distros jump ship and support Mint to become good enough to become a powerful enough contender then it will continue to struggle.
I won’t even get into the issue of different desktops with Gnome, K, Mate, Cinamon, etc
Then we need to address applications. Even Libreoffice is regrettably not good enough yet to replace the ubiquitous MS Office for most people. Until Mint becomes the main distro, the likes of Adobe, SAP, and thousands of others will not invest their dollars into producing and maintaining a Linux version. They need a winner to risk their efforts on.
Then there’s the basics of printing and scanning which are still woeful.
Graphic drivers, sleeping, hiberbating, touchscreens, WiFi are all serious issues or shortcomings I’ve faced with Mint and others.
We need the community to finally stop masturbating on their own fantasies and instead join together in a creative orgy of cooperation on one distro to finally push Windows aside forever.
"Shareholders will force them to choose 2, the users are locked in and they can't go anywhere"
I don't believe so. The consumer market can walk away to re-use their PC for many more years with Linux Mint, or walk away to Apple or get a Chromebook. Most consumers are happy not to use a PC anyway, prefering their phones and tablets / pads.
That leaves it to the corporate market to decde which way it will go. With more and more software being delivered as a service, there's less need to worry about the OS. When the OS borks and is more and more unreliable, businesses will also walk sooner or later.
I've put up with MS for 30 years, they revolutionised home and business computing whether we like them or not, it's a fact. But the pain now is getting worse, with Fragile used for developing the OS and beggar all testing in-house, plus all the worries about trying to keep safe from malware too, it's a big headache. I expect to cut free finally from Windows in 2019 and use Linux Mint and OSX.
Mobile networks are by their very nature constrained. Regardless, data volumes pumped through them double every year as content providers entice us with more and more attractive content and mobile phone makers move from producing phones to very powerful computing devices with great video processing and gorgeous screens.
As our collective data use doubles every year, are we prepared to effectively pay much more for our data each year? Of course not, but there’s only a certain rate that infrastructure can grow in capacity and there will inevitably be rationing when we overload it.
I have no connections to any network provider whatsoever. Sure, some of them will screw their customers but generally they do have a huge problem to try and manage.
