KFC takes legal axe to eight-legged mutant chicken claims



Ugly, incomplete, buggy: Windows 10 faces a sprint to the finish


after using the first preview released I thought 'yeah this is going to be good' but since upgrading to this latest build they have again gone down the route of change and made it worse

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: Great changes, but sssh don't mention the...


THIS LOOKS NICE BUT I HAVE REVERTED TO UBUNTU MANY TIMES AND ALWAYS FIND MYSELF SELLING MY SOUL BACK TO MICROSOFT AGAIN SOON AFTER... HOWEVER... if ubuntu could come up with such a feature that will invert highlighted text from capital to lower case for when I'm at work and i type a paragraph of text in capitals (see above^) without realising, i would jump across and never look back >>

Oh no, Joe: WinPhone users already griping over 8.1 mega-update

Re: You MS haters are amusing!

yes but unfortunately for you, microsoft will never go bankrupt and on patents alone will make more a day than you do a year.

Windows Phone 8 INFLATED by Microsoft ... to satisfy lonely phablets


i wish they could build a feature into RT so that if your running win 8 on your home PC/Laptop linked to your outlook/microsoft account you can use your windows RT tablet as a wireless display running pro either by personal hotspot/wifi. This would mean that the limited compatibility + apps issue would essentially be voided as when out and people dont want the fully built pro apps. they mainly use browser, office apps or games. It would create the best of both worlds and mean that you can have a 50/50 windows 8 experience rather than the limited version you will be getting for such a high priced piece of kit.

Microsoft CFO quits as quarterly results fail to sparkle


call me mad but personally i dont think microsoft are in TOO much trouble. at the end of the day you could say win7 was their starter for touch but windows 8 does make a good stepping stone in the right direction. I just got myself a hp envy and i have to say windows 8 pro on a touchscreen has been nailed down. Granted metro is ugly and redundant and this can be fixed, but in terms of how it works it is a good system. excellent desktop features, speedy and even from the first beta still not had 1 crash or problem with it. however i would like to see the 'start menu' put down into a smaller menu like windows 7 and previous versions that could be pulled out to be fullscreen or various sized dependant on taste. this could start with your app list and then have sub menus to scroll through ie my computer docs etc, meaning minimum effect to desktop function but also taking touch and smaller screens into mind. you could also then snap the start menu for instance to the right of the screen as you would an app and use them both side by side. but hey thats me many of you will disagree with this so just back off fools i dont really care if your gunna hate
