Windows 8 To Be 128-bit Only? LOL Commented on: 4 years ago (October 8, 2009) @dj - 128-bit support as mentioned in Wikipedia is quite different to 128-bit only as mentioned by Paul. Going 128-bit for Windows 8 seems pretty pointless to me. Most people will still only just...
Courier User Interface Commented on: 4 years ago (September 30, 2009) @SempSempSemp - nicely said! It is amazing how BladRnr calls the Courier vapourware and yet calls an unannounced iTablet as a real product. The iTablet may be real, if so, it'll likely come out...
Use the tools Microsoft didn't use to create Zune HD apps Commented on: 4 years ago (September 15, 2009) @gfryesc1 - the end result on your disk is where you can evaluate bloat. It doesn't really matter whether the installed is 90MB or 200MB, the one that leaves a smaller footprint is likely less...
Nokia to deliver Windows 7-powered netbook with 12 hours of battery life Commented on: 4 years ago (August 25, 2009) ipSec VPN's are being replaced by SSL VPN's. Some organisations (such as us) have a Cisco ipSec VPN concentrator. Works quite nicely until you want to use the Cisco VPN client on 64-bit Windows....
Apple's culture of lies finally dawns on a surprisingly unsuspecting world Commented on: 4 years ago (August 25, 2009) @BladRnr "I love how Apple comes out with an iPhone, and everyone bashes it until they try it." Or try it and don't like it, as I have. Some parts of it are really nice, the lack of flexibility in...
Apple to ship Snow Leopard this week Commented on: 4 years ago (August 24, 2009) @sunsfan : "Cmd-Q >>>>>>>>>> Alt-F4. Who actually uses the menu bar to quit apps in OS X?" Probably because using the menu bar is so painful. I recently purchased a MacBook Pro to test some of our...
Microsoft announces RTM for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 Commented on: 4 years ago (July 22, 2009) This is good news. Bring on August 7th (actually, August 8th in our time)! Of course, I'll probably be "disappointed" with the RTM code ... never had much of a problem with the RC code (other than...
Microsoft dangles a few more Windows 7 release details over our heads Commented on: 4 years ago (July 22, 2009) Comparing Microsoft and Apple pricing/licensing is a bit dopey really (like comparing butterflies to buffaloes). One is a hardware company that does a bit of software (but the hardware subsidises...
Microsoft, not bloggers, are responsible for lack of clarity around Windows 7 RTM Commented on: 4 years ago (July 14, 2009) @Waethorn: SharePoint Designer became free at the end of May. On topic: On the communication issues, Paul is correct that Microsoft have dropped the ball. The fact when it RTM's doesn't really...
WWDC 2009 Reality Check 2.0: iPhone 3G vs. 3G S Commented on: 4 years ago (June 9, 2009) Requoting ModernDislocation transcription above (which I assume is correct): "This is a chart of OS X users in the first five full years of Mac OS X, 2002 to 2007. Great steady growth, adoption. Mac...
