It would appear that Microsoft is encouraging some other entity to produce a quality PC OS.

Wow, Microsoft's Windows 10 always runs Edge on startup? What could cause that? So strange, tut-tuts Microsoft
Hey NYPD, when you're done tear-gassing and running over protesters, can you tell us about your spy gear?
When those who have grown up with a victim mentality are ready to have an honest conversation about that mentality, about illiteracy, about poverty, about single parent homes, about crime and illicit drug use then and only then will progress begin. Pretending that other people are the root cause of racism will keep people chained forever.
Huawei going to predict the future? Nope, say company leaders when asked about Joe Biden winning US election
Just the FACTS
Biden on AR-14's that don't exist-
Fact check on Biden's statement of 150 million people killed by guns in U.S. That would be close to half of the population.

But wait... the Flat Earth dot org folks have all sorts of reasons why the earth really is flat - according to their "research". In addition one well known accounting software provider when informed that their maths did not sum correctly advised that they would correct the problem in a future update. Apparently they didn't feel tax authorities would find the delay any issue? So how can the Horizon software be attacked? /s

Black Hat USA axes anti-abortion congressman as keynote speaker after outcry – and more news from infosec land
Do I understand correctly?
We have criminal hackers that are refusing to attend a conference on criminal hacking because they oppose the politics of an elected official? If the Congressional rep. opposed criminal hacking I could understand but when did criminal hackers grow a conscious about diversity, abortion, etc. while supporting their criminal behavior as hackers?
These boffins' deepfake AI vids are next-gen. But don't take our word for it. Why not ask Zuck or Kim Kardashian...
AMD on the move
Even without Intel's ongoing 10Nm crisis AMD has changed the CPU landscape for the better for Biz and consumers. With AMD's latest CPUs shipping on 7-7-19 being another significant performance improvement with as much as 50% lower power consumption enterprise can't afford to ignore these benefits especially when AMD's enterprise products typically cost 60% of Intel's. That's a lot of dollars at the end of the day. With all of the technical and administrative issues at Intel, AMD is in a position to significantly increase their market share in all segments over the next decade.
Selling AMD CPUs probably didn't make Intel very happy
With HP selling Epyc CPU powered systems because Intel was unable to compete or supply 10Nm CPUs probably didn't help improve the supply of Intel CPUs. HP's poor customer support and another round of defective laptop batteries is also likely to hurt their sales as they just don't seem to be able to understand the consumer market. Our company stopped buying HP laser printers due to their lack of reliability. The lights might be on at HP but it's difficult to tell if anyone is actually at home.

Time is going to catch up to Musk
Constantly making public statements in violation of law is eventually going to cost Musk his CEO position at Tesla and potentially any company for a minimum of 5-10 years. Clearly he doesn't believe that the rules apply to him. The SEC will likely need to make a more lasting impression with a $100 million fine as the last $20 million fine didn't seem to get Musk's attention.
Harassment, hate and bile, suicide instructions for kids... anything else social media's good at? Ah yes, cybercrime
One down thousands to go
A background check would not have shown or deterred him from 3D printing a gun. Thank the morons who posted plans online how to 3D print guns for unnecessary deaths. Any gangbanger, terrorists or evil person can get a Russian or Ukraine produced weapon in the U.S. and elsewhere with little trouble. If the U.S. and other countries want to reduce gun violence they need to remove the crazy people from society because you certainly can't remove the endless supply of illegal guns from foreign countries nor stop crazy people from 3D printing guns or gang members from making zip guns.
Governments worldwide have abdicated their responsibilities
It's inconceivable that governments worldwide would allow the dangerous practice of allowing prototype AVs to be operated on public roadways when no minimum safety, security, engineering or maintenance standards have been established for these vehicles. Insurance companies are even refusing to provide coverage because the judicial and legislative communities have not established who will die or be injured in an unavoidable accident and who will pay when said accidents occur.
Another frivolous lawsuit
Siren chasers trying to cash in on the technical ignorance of a jury.
AMD did not hide anything. Their architecture was always clearly stated. It's just technically challenged people looking to cash in. All one has to ask is if an AMD dual core CPU can process two threads at the same time. End of discussion. You don't need an individual FPU per core to have a multiple core CPU. Intel 286/386 CPUs did not have any FPUs. If you wanted one you had to buy another chip called a math co-processor. So were Intel I286 / I386 CPUs not actual CPUs? Obviously they were CPUs.

How long will government consumer protection agencies allow Windows users to be abused?
It's incomprehensible that government agencies world wide who's responsibility it is to protect the public from defective products and financial scams to allow Microsoft to continue costing Windows users irrefutable harm and financial losses from defective OSs and updates. Microsoft will continue to distribute defective goods until such time that they are fined billions of dollars for each damaging update. There is no reason for consumers to be damaged other than Microsoft's negligence and apathy.
