Re: Microsoft is interested in buying AMD

Ugh. Is there anything they don't want to buy? I mean, I realise it was Gates' intention to take over the world, but... You're forgetting that Microsoft doesn't really innovate anything of quality, they only buy innovation. Our productivity suite sucks? Lets buy Office! We don't have a serious vide...

Re: Microsoft Edge faster than Chrome or Safari

For now at least. Microsoft in recent years has tended to, in every which time a hopes of a "relaunch" of Internet Explorer, put out a release that outpaces everyone in speed by a healthy margin, but then sits on the technology for the next 1-2 years so that they get left behind in the dus...

Re: Facebook is tracking you even if you do not have an acco

What a lovely world we live in. They can intrude on your life and sell information you did not consent to giving to, without even getting any service in return. Shouldn't this be entirely against US neoliberal free-market values? They are stealing our intellectual property. At the very least this re...

Re: One more thing before you decide to test Windows 10

Okay, that's a relief. Corporate policy hasn't dropped down to that level...yet (though it would probably hurt Microsoft with their business customers with something so out-right blatant ) After all, Microsoft and Apple love claiming "you are our consumers, not the product" jargon nowadays...

Re: One more thing before you decide to test Windows 10

My question about all of this is : 1) Is this massive "collaborative" data collection just for the preview...for those who are using the beta, or for Windows 10 the final product as well ? After all previews are almost entirely for Microsoft not the end user. They want input 2) Will there ...

Re: Google loosing US market shares

I think people are just aware now that there are other options, and they aren't terrible. Younger people (aka my age) seem to like Bing a lot because of its homepage (pretty picture with information about something else in the world, bing rewards, etc), then there's the Yahoo reappearing in the publ...

Re: Microsoft in email warrant case against US government

True true, thats what I thought at first, BUT, think about their botom lines. Microsoft is already losing business (at least with their Cloud and server services) because people don't trust US hosted data anymore. Microsoft, as well any other company, would not support a government action that would...

Re: Win update creates Blue screen of death

On one hand, I surely do miss the easy 3rd party support that one gets with Windows, and yet my bitterness towards Windows itself motivates me to keep it away as far as possible. I've become quite comfortable with Fedora 20 + Gnome 3, simply flawless. It's a joke that Microsoft wants to play the rel...
