Knowing Microsoft, just waiting to see how they shoot themselves in the foot with this. Given that they also want to charge for the full version, methinks what they tack on to Bing will be severely hobbled and munged up.

How the headline should read
Crazed luny running irresponsible media venture now hallucinating visions of turning around an all ready sinking ship.
It's like the captain of the Titanic, ordering crew to leave all bulkheads open, while telegraphing the world that nothing is wrong, we will be in port soon.
One manager tasked with hiring 1000 staff in a month. You wish.
Maybe opening a new plant, but then there would be more than enough managers available.
Using AI in hiring is business shooting themselves in the foot.
Until you can trust AI to mow your lawn without the aid of electronic guides, it is not ready for prime time.
All connected, interoperable, never going to happen. The only business plan Zuckzombie and his ilk understand is the walled garden. Online multiplayer platforms and games do everything they can to keep all monetization/value withing that entity. You think Zuckzombie or Activision is going to say yes to third party gold sellers?
Nice to see more people are finally grokking that the crime here is not the 30% sale price take, but the vig, owing Apple 30% of every microtransaction made via the app for perpetuity.
The issues are clear with Apple, with Google, it is really android that is the problem and OS issues are too complex for the average lawmaker to grasp.
win 10 Updates - Three days a month my computer is useless
I have a potato computer. Every Win 10 update takes control of it for three days of endless disk thrashing, extremely long start up times, and massive lag when trying to play games or run any memory or cpu intensive software. Usually after 3 days things settle down.
Fortunately they have never broken anything, but why in Gods name does their own anti-virus have to scan every file of their update multiple times?
Thank God, my potato does not qualify for Win 11.
Some people are simply ignorant of history.
China could care less about Taiwan for centuries until China had a civil war where the leader of the losing side escaped to Taiwan and set up his own version of China there eventually named the Republic of China. The CCP goes apoplectic at the mention of the Republic of China (hence why the name Taiwan is used) and threatens world nuclear holocaust any time it is brought up.
Renting puts you business way out on a limb you cannot easily climb down from.
It puts your business in an environment you have zero control over, for things like security, safety, disasters, and at the whims/greed of who collects the rent.
If those don't matter to your business, then it is cheaper in the short term, but could cost way more in the long run.
"Renting your IT hardware on a subscription basis is bad for your customers"
A negative statement.
Followed by a binary choice:
* For - Is it a vote for renting, or a vote against renting
* Against - Is it a vote against renting or a vote for renting
Seems like a trap to confuse people and produce worthless results.
Kremlin names the internet giants it will kidnap the Russian staff of if they don't play ball in future
JEDI mind tricks: Google said Pentagon contract didn't align with company values. Now it's chasing another defence gig
Yahoo! shuts! down! last! China! operations! as! doing! business! becomes! 'increasingly challenging'!
This is the face of end stage democratic capitalism. Infrastructure is crumbling, social turmoil and division is spreading, growing shortage of goods, high unemployment together with labor shortages, it's 1980s Russia all over again, except it is greedy corporations instead of party fat cats causing the rot. Get ready for a bumpy transition to Russian/Chinese style gangster capitalism. Democratic Capitalism is terminal.
Zuckerberg wants to create a make-believe world in which you can hide from all the damage Facebook has done
The metaverse is a meaningless term, it's the old street con man for mumbling incomprehenibly when a mark asks questions.
F*ckUbook motto really is "we use stupid laws like 230 and technology to invade everyone's privacy and sell the information gained to the highest bidder, and also promoting murder, incest, pedophilia, racism etc if it sells adds."
Metamucil is more like it, get ready to get shit on even more by powerful corporations.
Lawyers and eventually Judges That Get IT
It has taken a generation or so for lawyers and eventually those on the bench to have grown up with technology and have a clue about what big tech is running circles around privacy and fair trade.
This is hopeful, but sadly my just be a high profile shake down. Big tech will just have to "speak" (as in Citizen's United) a little more with the litigants to make this all go away. Compared to the loss if they had to stop these practices, bribes are pin money.
What the F*ck, any fool knows if you have a mostly captive group of humans, whose only choice is to eat in your mess hall, that you totally dispense with cash registers and paying that just slows a line down. You just pile yearly fee on them. Tough tomatoes if they miss a meal, or choose to not eat.
Every school I went to growing up did it this way. If it was a private school it came out of your tuition. If it was pubic they just did not even dick around with any charges, if you were a kid in the cafeteria you got fed, no charge. Compared to the walnut paneling budget for administrators the cost to do that is pin money in most school systems.
How not to train your Dragon: What happens when you teach an AI game sex-abuse stories then blame players
We have several Apple and Android devices, and it is clear the Apple charger cables are purposely designed to be as flimsy as possible and require regular replacement. Those connectors and cords are designed to be as small, inobtrusive and minimalist in keeping with Apples number one priority "brand style". The are not designed to be robust enough to stand up to normal human every day use, where no one has the time or inclination to treat them like precious delicate art objects.
PS I will never buy another Apple device.
Can we talk about Kevin McCarthy promising revenge if Big Tech aids probe into January insurrection?
Re: Lawmakers or lawbreakers?
Very well said. Most lovers of due process and individual rights have no clue on just how powerful congressional committes are. They can demand you show up for grilling, you have to lawyer up on your own dime, (no public defenders), and you have to answer all questions and supply all data requested or risk contempt of congress.
Sometimes they do good things (like Watergate), other times, they are the definition of a kangaroo court.
This does not add up.
How often do multinational corporations suddenly decide they exist to become a vigilante versus one specific type of crime and invest significant resources into the process?
How often do multinational corporations get in bed with the state to cooperate in the surveillance and data mining of individuals, hum, sounds like more familiar territory.
Don't pay any attention to this massive AI we slip-streamed onto your device as it eats cpu cycles. It's for the children! Trust us to look after you while we sell every bit of data on you that to the highest bidder (we don't call them that, we call them business associates to skirt the law.)
