'Apple ate my music!' Streaming jukebox wipes 122GB – including muso's original tracks


I choose

To not use cloud services at all, and I also choose not to use location services. I also choose to block all scripts from my browser. If they can get you they will. I then incrementally choose which services and scripts I allow on MY computer.

Windows 10 handcuffs Cortana web search to Bing and Edge browser



No one uses cort(what'shername?)

How Remix's Android will eat the world


How many times?

Have we heard that claim before? hahaha. Nobody cares about android. You can't get it to work right, you can't get everyone on the same page, it's full off malware, and google is the the devils way of destroying humanity. I'm not saying apple is perfect (especially el crapitan) but at least you know what you are getting... it's a known quantity. Micro...who?

Reminder: iPhones commit suicide if you repair them on the cheap


Once buy it

You own it. End of story. Why would I pay 600$ to borrow a phone?

No escape: Microsoft injects 'Get Windows 10' nagware into biz PCs


No where to turn

Been saying it for years. The world needs an alternative. Someone on the end users side. Someone who knows what they are doing. Our current two party system has given absolute power to the few. Humanity needs a savior. Don't give me that Linux/Google crap unless you are planning to build me a fully functioning OS out of it. The first person to invade the market with an affordable alternative will be infamous.

Microsoft’s Get Windows 10 nagware shows signs of sentience



I hope it does gain sentience and attacks googles ai. It may be the only thing to save humanity from the war robot human enslavers.

Boozing is unsafe at ‘any level’, thunders chief UK.gov quack


All I have to say is

I was in London for a week 3 weeks ago and you guys drink like Mormons. Nothing but 4 % session ales. I got ahold of a 7% and they warned me about how strong it was and then had the keystone cop follow me around to make sure I wouldn't cause trouble. So what's this guy going on about? And has he been outside London's boarders before?

Face, meet book: Zuckerberg plans to dabble in AI this year


Monkeys are an extinct species.

I'm teaching my child where the off button is. Not sure what's more evil. Google, Facebook, or the us government. Build your doomsday shelter now,

Microsoft halts downloads of new PowerShell power-up


Can't believe

You just put the words smart and Microsoft together in the same article. A release... Right before Christmas.... That resets everything. Like a 90's style OS update. Good grief Charley brown.

Google says its quantum computer is 100 million times faster than PC


Terribly frightening

An army of Google war robots powered by quantum AI armed with the accumulated knowledge of the human race. Monkeys are in SERIOUS trouble.

Rooting and modding a Windows Phone is now child's play


Just a thought

Maybe Microsoft should hire him? Sounds like he's the only person in the world that knows how it works.

Apple – it's true: iPad Pro slabs freeze when plugged in to charge


My iPhone 5s charger

Caught on fire this morning. The wife's blew and sparked a few weeks ago. It's like they are on a timer. Cheap Chinese crap would have burned my house down had I not been watching it. Too bad it's still better than the alternatives... #pleasegetyourishtogether

Apple's Faulty Powers moment: iPad Pro slabs 'temporarily bricked' during recharge


It's become obvious

Apple hired discharged Microsoft programmers.

Apple's OS X App Store downloads knackered by expired security cert


Been using apple

Since 98'. Was learning apples in grade school when they indoctrinated the children early on. This is NOT apple

Anymore. The should change the name at this point. They have totally screwed the software and no one is interested in that el crapitan. Too bad they are still a better choice then Windows. Someone who knows what the freak they are doing desperately needs to come on the scene and save humanity.

Surface Book: Microsoft to turn unsuccessful tab into unsuccessful laptop


You know you can

Apple files patent for long-rumoured iRing-type bling



My wife was just discussing this the other day. Nobody wants the watch because it's overkill that's tethered, but she says what really makes it useful is the fact it tells you when you have a call, because ladies wear thier phones in thier purse and miss calls. She said they need a ring that tells you one thing... Your phone ( in your purse ) has a call. Call it the apple "ring". Of course we didn't patent it...

Another root hole in OS X. We know it, you know it, the bad people know it – and no patch exists


Everyone knows it

and yet it's not a problem and never has been. Apple is so very frustrating for these "security experts." I truely do feel for them.

W is for WTF: Google CEO quits, new biz Alphabet takes over

Moronic Time cover sets back virtual reality another 12 months


I don't get oculus

They aren't doing anything new...they are just using todays updated processing power. Why all the fuss? Don't we live in enough virtual reality as it is?

Microsoft vacates moral high ground for the data slurpers' cesspit


Why is there a down vote button?

Are we not allowed to think and feel freely anymore?


...and while I'm at it...

Don't go getting snarky MAC users (I am one). If M$ is successful apple will be next.


Re: I'm sorry to say this

...and I'm not even getting into the fact that you are out there now... everything about you. centralized and ready for the pickings. They WILL be hacked, only a matter of time before someone gets to the database they are creating.


I'm sorry to say this

But that is such a euro thing to say. There are several reasons to be upset.

First: You are being studied like a zoo animal. Do you trust your overlords to do the right thing? or does absolute power corrupt absolutely?

They aren't just trying to find bad guys, they are making a fortune off you. Targeting your children even. Influencing everyday life and stagnating the creative mind. Should we all conform? Unfortunately, we have little choice at this point. Welcome to 1984, you were warned 30 years ago this was the danger of technology. Next up is google ai overlords making sure you do what is expected.


You have three options.

Become one with the Borg or find a way to turn off the internet (google).

Or start building robots to fight our computer overlords and send them back in time to stop it before it starts.

How much of one year's Californian energy use would wipe out the drought?


Cali is a mess

With few bright spots. They hold us back and create evil every chance they get. Can't wait till they sink into the ocean and Vegas is beach front. This is so doable and the only ones stopping this from happening is Cali. Even I've asked my self why this isn't being done before. Sell the salt duh.

Tablets, smartwatches just not doing it for Apple right now



thank goodness apple exists or I would wind up slitting my wrist while staring at a windows box after I had pulled my hair out trying to get mundane tasks done. But I'm not going to shell out every two years for multiple new products I don't need to update. The phone is essential. A laptop is pretty essential... After that you are just throwing money at them and only the stupid rich do that.
