Surely if he didn't want MSXP then the onus is on him to check what he buys! Not go "oh i've bought the wrong thing - I'll sue the manufacturers!"
also, from the linked ruling, there is no way the stuff was worth €311.
MS Works costs £8 THAT'S EIGHT POUNDS for an OEM copy like Acer would have bundled - so that should have only been €12 - NOT €40!
And in no way is a guy ghosting 20 hard drives at once then having a cup of tea in the meantime worth €49.90!
If the guy wanted a blank laptop he should have piped up BEFORE he handed over his cash; and he shouldn't have got that hefty a discount. The appeals courts that acer will surely go to should definitely reverse the decision.
(I'm a Firefox user so don't take this the wrong way)
"Use Firefox and you don't have to worry" - There are holes and security risks in Firefox as well. Perhaps a more factual statement would have been:
"Use Firefox and you don't have to worry about IE exploits (unless you're running IE Tab)"
I can already access my windows desktop from many internet-connected devices (including my pda).
It's a fantastic little service called Remote Desktop and it's why I run the Pro or Business flavours of windows on my PCs.
What really frustrates me is that companies like VMware, AMD & Nivio spend R&D resources on third-party cludges that replicate functionality that is already seamlessly built-in to windows.
Not least because said cludges probably don't follow windows' themes and therefore cause problems for prople who need to use larger font sizes.
Spend money on something useful and original!
cd's slow down when the lens is reading from the edge (or is it centre? - i think it's the centre because dvd±rw drives get their peak burn speed near the edge of the disk).
i don't think "rubbish" meant that the two speeds would be simultaneous!
also, i don't think this would cut anything - more likely jolt to a stop and damage it's motor or even lens mechanism!
You seem to be deriding the fact that M$ are releasing 6 critical patches?
It would certainly be worse if they just ignored the issue and pretended everything was OK. At least this is a step in the right direction.
And before you say "it shouldn't need security patches at all" just bear in mind that nothing is perfect!
