When the bits hit the FAN: US military accused of knackering Russian trolls, news org's IT gear amid midterm elections


iTunes on Windows? Spawn of the devil...

You've obviously never used the Windows version of iTunes. How attaching my old iPhone 6 to my Windows PC hasn't launched a nuclear armageddon is a mystery to me.

Now Microsoft ports Windows 10, Linux to homegrown CPU design


Microsoft ports... successfully?

Microsoft haven't built *any* hardware that both works and is long-lasting for more than 20 years. Its last hardware success was - and still is - the Microsoft Mouse. All other hardware projects have fallen by the wayside (Zune, Kinect, Windows Phone...) or, if still (barely) around, riddled with problems. (Xbox? Surface range?) As a result, the idea of MS successfully porting *anything* to a home-grown processor architecture has as much chance of flying long-term as I do.
