My personal use case is Nested VMs for Ryzen processors. MS has been dragging its feet for 5ish years on sorting that out on Windows 10 and only got as far as the Dev channel for some very limited support.
Noted as working in - https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/comments/ocs90j/nested_hyperv_windows_11_supported_on_amd_ryzen/
Was happy to find enabling all the required bits in bios made my machine worthy of Windows 11 so no massive outlay for new parts!
They could start by fixing the randomly vanishing and reappearing volume icon from the system tray.
My personal wishlist also includes finally introducing nested virtualisation support on AMD processors for the general public. This preview BS has been going on far too long.
What you're describing can be explored in a book called "Snakes in Suits" ISBN-10 : 9780061147890. A highly recommended read for anyone interested in spotting and attempting to root out psychopaths in the workplace.
Right now, it seems the whole board is infested with them.
"Demand for EVs outstripped supply and there are long waiting list and lead times for new high-profile EVs."
If demand is outstripping supply then this plan is window dressing at best. Surely now is the worst time to buy a this type of car due to demand pushing prices up which gives poorer returns on the taxpayer 'investment'. Also who gets this money? Nissan? Renault? I'm failing to see how those foreign car companies taking tax cash benefits the uk as a whole.
And he fought a (good/bad) fight. Delete as appropriate. Anyone remember the Doublespace and drivespace fiasco? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stac_Electronics#Microsoft_lawsuit Just one of many examples of dodgy practices.
Still. I'm typing this on a very stable Windows10 box that brings me hours of fun and productivity, so its not all bad from my perspective.
"...It's $399 or £399"
Is it just me who hates it when these companies equate $ to £ and screw over British consumers? I know the £ has devalued somewhat but its still pretty far off actual parity.
I also happen to think its too much for a fricken PHONE, but wouldn't begrudge someone their opportunity to fondle their slab.
Anywhere between £203 and £715 is a ridiculous variance even for a fairly large quantity of ram as 64Gig.
Perhaps they're skimming off of the money saved by every gamer buying Ryzen chips.
Another prime example of a nanny state not putting children's welfare in the hands of those responsible, the parents. You wouldn't let a kid behind the wheel of a car anymore than you should allow a kid with a sophisticated computer in their pocket not have 'nanny' software blocking objectionables. You'd hide the damn keys.
Perhaps this is another excuse to ban or regulate VPN use further down the road.
Perhaps providers of content could delivery shitty quality video to the networks of providers who try to squeeze them and their customers for profit. Nothing irritates a user more than a service they're using proving to be unreliable and inferior to their mates service. Or plan C, imagine...
"Dear Netflix subscriber,
Your carrier/isp charges netflix a premium to delivery our HD content to their customers advising us that if we didn't pay they would throttle our content, diminishing your experience. Unfortunately this necessitates a £1/month subscription premium to your service. Please feel free to use the affiliate links below to mobile/broadband partners who promise never to do this.

Netflix in your face Support"
Sony Xperia phones are pretty bad for this. And you pay a stupid premium for the phone with less space and another brand for the same price. An 8Gig phone was screaming at me from week 1 due to me taking a few photos and having the temerity to install a few key applications. There was a load of bloatware I couldn't remove so I keep this on a shelf for a backup. Ended up with a 64gig OnePlus. Vote with your feet people and don't reward companies with your money for bad behaviour or support.
Printing error? Bollocks probably. Pathetic certainly. Perhaps not quite as pathetic as the 'tax' that is now acceptable to pay because a week earlier holiday is vastly cheaper than a week later. It's a bit like the congestion charge. If those levying these 'fines' were truly looking out for kids or congestion, the fines and charges would be astronomical so as to make paying them unthinkable. Hence nothing less than a money generating exercise.
...is the gigantic "We value your privacy"* popup that covers up the content until you tell it to feck off. That and the in your face button to "Enable all purposes" button followed by a ream of much smaller switch off this reason to rape your privacy buttons. I don't want to view the vendor list. No I don't want to see the list of companies. What I want is a giant feck off I don't accept or disable all purposes permanently. Sure I can click through all of the tiny buttons and view the page with impunity, however if I have the temerity to click on another page it loads up the same bullshit to click through a the list again. It's a tactic to wear you down so you eventually click sod it, enable all.
I even tried to use uBlock to remove these specific elements which appeared at first to work. Alas it also blocked the scroll bar, so I end up with a portion of the underlying page and no way to scroll.
The final solution is to simply not use sites that force-feed irritating content down your throat.
*Which is an even more gigantic lie. They're forced to pay lip-service by gdpr or something.
Our company introduced this policy recently. It's a unix-esque "Assume no access" and if someone specifically requires USB access they can request it. The line manager of that person then makes the case to the security team. A lone field engineer uploading an image for a customer isn't going to bring down IBM.
Perhaps this notion is too complex for a multinational monster.
1 An A.I. system must be subject to the full gamut of laws that apply to its human operator.
2 An A.I. system must clearly disclose that it is not human.
3 An A.I. system cannot retain or disclose confidential information without explicit approval from the source of that information.
