Windows 10: Charms Bar Removed, No Start Screen For Desktops
They still don't understand that the damn thing should be OPTIONAL so the user can decide.
Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade
They've managed to find yet another way to screw it up mere nanoseconds before reaching the finish line?
Your Entire PC In a Mouse
Throw in a Thunderbolt port and you'll also be able to offload more connections to a compact docking station.
Leverage the low-quality graphics features of modern x86 CPUs and adapt Intel's Wireless Display tech or something similar and boom, you'll also be able to sell mobile displays with a kickstand so your office PC can turn into a laptop whenever the situation requires it. Same with simply using the projector in your conference room as an external display.
With all the necessary product lines under one roof and the necessary business partnerships on top of it, why exactly isn't Lenovo selling this yet???
SpaceX Rocket Launch Succeeds, But Landing Test Doesn't
That they made it this far and were most likely able to retrieve a ton of information for their people to improve the next attempt sounds to me as well like they got their money's worth.
US CTO Tries To Wean the White House Off Floppy Disks
To be fair, it depends on the context. A few years ago I was working for a company whose bank still required the large amount of end-of-month transactions for automated processing to be submitted via a 3.5" disk instead of an encrypted connection. Part of the reason why the company eventually switched to a major bank with a decent infrastructure.
Is the Tablet Market In Outright Collapse? Data Suggests Yes
In my case a cheap Chinese 10" no-name tablet serves the same purpose. As long as it has WiFi, a working SD card slot and is fast enough to play videos without any lags, there's no need to buy a newer one.
The Interview Bombs In US, Kills In China, Threatens N. Korea
It's a movie that includes Seth Rogen!
What did you expect? A new Schindler's List?!?
AI Expert: AI Won't Exterminate Us -- It Will Empower Us
Look at our history and the current climate and then tell me that this planet wouldn't be better off without the human race!
Doesn't need an AI that advanced to figure that out.
How the FCC CIO Plans To Modernize 207 Legacy IT Systems
For starters, the US government is the biggest user of ColdFusion, but at least that's still supported even if it's a commercial product.
Ubisoft Apologizes For Assassin's Creed
Their news embargo basically equaled a goddamn GAG ORDER and they really want to convince us that this wasn't because they knew all along what a train wreck they were about to sell and to prevent he media prom warning the customers??? It was fraud, plain and simple and they now want to get people to accept some of their other crap as compensation so they won't be able to join a class-action lawsuit.
The Great IT Hiring He-Said / She-Said
Doesn't exactly hurt that it's easier with smaller companies to work around the HR monkeys and get in touch with the people who actually know what they're doing.
YouTube Considering an Ad-Free, Subscription-Based Version
Still doesn't change that proxies are necessary to get around the region restrictions of some videos.
Windows 10 Gets a Package Manager For the Command Line
Yeah because they will let just anyone publish packages in repositories that are configured by default. This is not a problem with Linux package managers, why does everyone assume it will be a problem with Windows?
Like intentionally malicious USB drivers that will nuke the hardware people bought? All it needs is some crazy asshole with the keys to the castle.

German Publishers Capitulate, Let Google Post News Snippets
The law they had their cronies enact is still on the books. It's only Google that no longer has to give a shit about it, but it's still there to threaten innovation.
How To Find the Right Open Source Project To Get Involved With
In my case it was because I'm a lazy bastard. I needed e bug tracking module (exception details are turned into a unified format to report to a bug tracking server) and I came across one that was already 95% of what I wanted, so I simply contributed enhancements until the final 5% were covered.
The same thing got a former colleague of mine involved in the Firebug project until he became a regular contributor.
New US Airstrikes In Iraq Intended to Protect Important Dam
Quick, someone distribute a shitload of tanks to the untrained police and open up some offshore concentration camps!
Post-Microsoft Nokia Offering Mapping Services To Samsung
Don't forget the other advantages of satnav in a handheld device, like how you can take the device with you, save the spot where you parked the car as a way point.
Munich Reverses Course, May Ditch Linux For Microsoft
The new mayor once brokered the deal to get Microsoft to move its German headquarters (and the tax revenue that comes with it) into Munich proper instead of some satellite city and now that he's been elected, he and his friends constantly spread rumors about problems with the completed Linux migration (never any lists of actual concrete examples) and they want to look into whether they should move back to MS products.
