'Hotmail, since you changed to Outlook, you've been a massive pr**k'



I really like the new look. I was an early subscriber to the modern UI as the old interface looked cluttered. I would like MS to change the login page so it fits in with what's 'behind the curtain'. I must admit, I tend to access my email through an app so the web aspects do not intrude too much into my daily gripes.

IT salaries: Why you are a clapped-out Ferrari


I couldn't do it any longer

... So I became a teacher (no joke). It's good when you know you will receive a payrise each year and contribute to society.

Windows 7 'security' patch knocks out PCs, knackers antivirus tools


Buy a Mac...

Movie review: Oblivion


Bit of OK

Went last night to see Oblivion. Even though Tom Cruise winds me up with his Scientology crap, the movie was alright. Still think Tom's run is hilarious. I would recommend it.

Microsoft to bake Windows 8 in three flavours


It's baked into the OS

WMPlayer is not needed as it was, anymore. The new method (as seen on Windows Phone 7.5 and Xbox 360) builds the media functions into all apps so media isn't limited to a specific app. I have played with Win8 previews for a large government sector with it's use of media functions. The results have shown greater productivity and end user feedback has been great. The UI is not actually an issue because it's ability to display information without opening an app saves time, which turns into saving money...companies love saving money!!!

I'm excited about the changes MS are making. And that's coming from a Mac user (and MS, linux....)
