Not sure how prevalent it is but my motherboard has "dual BIOS" . When you update, it only installs over one of the BIOS, keeping the other untouched as a backup. If the installation fails/results in a corrupted installation, it falls back to the second BIOS so you can still successfully boot and try again.
I didn't buy from the windows store on pc, rather through my xbox one. Got State of Decay 2 as I would any other game, but it is cross platform. The one purchase lets me install it on Xbox One and on PC (Windows 10 only, apparently). I'm not sure if the revenue share is different when purchased via xbox or pc but if there are other games that are cross platform that I want to get then I might just purchase them through the store. Never had a need for anything else on it though.
What is this rarbg.com? Never heard of it and when I try to visit it I just get this message

I've never used an iPhone but as far as I know they only have the one official app store right? And for Android there is the Google Play store. That's 2 stores. What are the other 19 stores?; I assume they are more than likely shady sources of APKs of questionable legitimacy.
I would be more than keen to accept the upgrade to Win 10 except for the fact that whenever I tried the 8.1 upgrade (currently still on 8) it would fail hard and I'd end up having to completely reinstall 8. If I can't upgrade from 8 to 8.1 I don't know how well I'd fare going from 8 to 10.
"I am paying $60 for 500GB peak & 500Gb off-peak now Exetel it charging $89 for 1000Gb "any-time" (from Exetel site)."
I don't see the plan you say are on (500gb on/off), only the 1000gb anytime, which is $58 month, not $89 as you say. I am currently on the Unlimited data allowance which is only $59.
I quite like iiNet and was worried this article was about them doing some dodgy advertising but...
"The ads correctly showed the $69.95 monthly price of the plan, along with the total price, but the ACCC says not enough prominence was given to the total cost."
So they were honest about the costs and they're being fined because some people are too dumb to do simple math? CostPerMonth*NumberOfMonthsInContract . It's two fucking numbers, multiplied.
"It would also be impossible for the malignant sound to be controlled so precisely that the resulting digitized data would form a working program."
Ha, reminds me of a tv show where the criminal had etched markings into some bones, then when the bones were photographed and loaded onto the computer, they got a virus.

"How do you set up a system that allows you to access my Exchange Server and revoke an unopened message that is sitting in my Inbox..."

As above, just depends what options you have set.
Posting hre because I'm too lazyto sign up for engadget comments, but this is a much better report than what i read there. When i first read it all it mentioned was twitter support, and 'a new way to manage addons' - not the fact that it blocks third party add-ons, etc.
And the Twitter support is only via the search box, which I have disabled/hidden anyway. At first I thought it was going to be some big ugly Twitter logo somewhere, but no, it's in a feature I never use, plus the actual decent updates, I am going t oupdate right now. Fuck all ya'll haters that don't look into iot further and just post comments along the lines of 'twitter in my firefox? ghey'
