Indeed. This the closest Bing's got to an accurate translation in years.

.. my current mobe is one of them, because I needed one in a hurry, brought one as a stop-gap, and 14 months later I'm still looking for a 'proper' phone that's better... I resell TP-Link routers for the same reason
I wish the buggers could spell "Honour" though. Seriously, guys, if you want to give your phone an English name, at least fire up the fucking dictionary and pick a word we all spell the same. "Trumpwomble" might be worth a go.
I get US$100k for tooling around rural NZ pulling dead rats out of printers and bitchslapping W10 installs. (The nice thing about working on the coalface: You get the pick of the coal)

It's OK to cry.
Linux is - or was, at least - a philosophy as much at was an OS: "Here's a problem, how do we fix it?" It shouldn't matter if the OS base is Linux, OSX, Windows 10 (LOL), or the ghost of Symbian.
Computers work for *us*, don't they?
I have no idea if Fuchsia will make the grade. But kudos to Google for having a go, we have nothing to fear from originality (unless you work for MS) .
"The OS' job is to help the user utilize the hardware in the most productive way achievable."
No, the OS's job is to do what it's damn well told. If I fire up a program that wants H.264 video, I want the OS to go and get H.264 video, not try to give me a different format or a game of sodding Candy Crush.
Plus, if they've got a billion in the bank, they're presumably asking for a least a billion to buy them out, which is quite a lot for an app nobody uses even if it comes with the cash. The likes of Google or Facebook could slap an equivalent app together in-house with minimal effort.
Well, I'd agree that a lot has changed. But next time you're killing a few hours waiting for a Windows update, ask yourself if it has all changed for the better, or if there might have been something useful in those old notes.
Mine's the one with a copy of Harel's 'Algorithmics' in the pocket.
"Sage is looking to change 500 years of accounting," exclaimed chief executive Stephen Kelly [...] "There is no company that integrates payroll, time and billing, general ledger, CRM the way we do". (from www.accountingweb.com)
Well, that certainly seems to be true. Everybody else generally hangs on to their customer's accounting data.
Eh? Free for personal use and a free trial for the business version seems fair to me, especially since it seems to be cheaper than Skype for Business.
(Edit: Plus, it looks like it works on older platforms. And there's a Linux version that hasn't just been shot in the face)
>...the hash can be cracked in a couple of hours now...
Well, that depends how strong the password is. I think most home users use passwords around the 6-7 letter mark (and re-use it for everything): Even with numbers in the mix that's only ever been a few minutes work with a decent NTLM rainbow table, and they've been around for 15+ years. Hell, just knowing that 8846F7EAEE8FB117AD06BDD830B7586C is the NTLM hash for "password" will open a few doors. This is why we have salt (but not at Redmond).
