  1. Past hour
  2. European countries decided to respect the ban as well, against their own best interests. I have to assume that they have received convincing evidence to give up playing nice with Huawei, especially when doing so comes with a significant revenue loss. They should share the evidence, and get it over-with. Then people will understand.
  3. To save time I like to use a flash drive with the latest ISO "burned" on it with the Media Creation Tool on it, to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 version once I've fully tested it. Now, it ironically will not install as an upgrade from an old version since the device is "incompatible" due to the presence of the USB drive being used to install it. It works fine with a DVD, but that takes longer and is more a a hassle when i'm working on customer machines. In any case, using a DVD is still faster than downloading a feature update for each machine.
  4. You can buy a key for $12 on some sites. It's legit as they buy from business resellers who have purchased separate volume license keys This is where I am on this license key thing. Its been a while since I played the cat and mouse game with Windows. A legit license is the way to do it. 12 bucks eh? Hmmm.
  5. Microsoft and Brilliant collaborate to launch interactive course on quantum computing by Hamza Jawad Nearing the end of 2017, Microsoft released the first public preview of its Quantum Development Kit (QDK) for Windows, later announcing support for Linux and macOS. Although the tech giant believes that getting the hang of quantum development is easy through the QDK, it is now making it "even easier" by partnering up with Brilliant.org to offer a new course on quantum computing. Aptly dubbed "Quantum Computing", the course is centered around the learning of programming in Q#, Microsoft's high-level, quantum-tuned programming language. In what can seem a daunting field, the course will provide self-learners with an idea of where to begin. The curriculum is also designed in such a manner that it is not resource-intensive and does not disrupt students' schedules. As such, they can learn how to simulate some relatively simpler quantum algorithms on the go, while the more complex ones can still be implemented on the web - without the additional requirement of downloading a development environment ever arising. Quantum phenomena are said to have been presented in such a way that they are more approachable. Basic operations can be undertaken through a simple drag-and-drop simulator, giving students a chance to focus more on quantum learnings as opposed to quite advanced mathematical concepts. In keeping with the aforementioned approachable nature, Microsoft believes that by the end of the course, students will be able to easily comprehend and understand the need for the translation of a difficult classical problem into a quantum representation. Various ways in which Q# proves to be an integral part of this course have been highlighted by Microsoft in the following manner: "Q# also provides a powerful way to quickly prototype quantum programs in tandem with a classical programming environment. Using Q#’s new Python integration within the Brilliant course, students call Python to implement the classical side of an algorithm and call Q# to run the quantum side—all in a single coding environment in their browser. Q#’s integration with Python provides a glimpse into the future of quantum computing: a classical computer that can leverage quantum hardware for particular problems, in much the same way that we currently use GPUs to speed up the solutions of ray tracing or machine learning problems." The first two chapters of the course, along with an interactive introduction to coding in Q# are available to registered Brilliant users for an unspecified 'limited' time period. You can begin the course and also learn more about it here. Interestingly, Microsoft announced earlier this month that it would be open-sourcing the QDK in GitHub this summer.

  7. All of my (many!) machines updated to 1903 flawlessly. I am most pleased.
  8. As a fyi, I had to "seek" it with windows update assistant for 4 computers at work, the rest had an extra section in windows update for downloading it. Those 4 machines had external drives which MS isn't immediately offering the update to as the drive lettering -might- change during the update(none of my 4 changed) Yeah, the REALLY need to get on the ball about fixing that idiotic issue. You can't even use a USB drive CREATED BY THE MEDIA CREATION TOOL to update a computer. Ironically, you CAN use a DVD created by the tool, despite the fact that more and more computers these days are coming without a DVD drive. Microsoft seems to be going backwards with this.
  9. as the article pointed out, modern phone manufacturers are colossal c***s and don't support SD cards. Of course the poor transfer speeds on almost all SD cards is one hell of a deterrent. So basically it's everybody's fault.
  10. The Messaging App was not something used directly. The core was and is used by Skype to provide SMS syncing. I doubt any WP/WM10 user ever even noticed that messages could appear in the Messaging App, as it was NEVER the UI used. PS - the Messaging App hasn't displayed or allowed access to SMS messages for Sync since like 1803 or 1709 - so this isn't technically a new change. Do people still use SMS these days other than 2 factor auth? In Europe nobody uses that anymore since the telecoms kept charging way to much so everybody turned to WhatsApp. Then way to late made it free but people are used to other solutions now. In the US, SMS is generally free with most plans, so yes a lot of people here still use it. I know pretty much nobody that uses WhatsApp here (I'm sure some people do, but no one that I know personally does). Anyone not using SMS is most likely using Facebook Messenger for the same purpose.

  12. So did Sony, remember the memory stick, or m2 (not m.2) formats? Unless you completely own a segment or are as popular as Apple, or something, adapters won't really cut it.
  13. I do not recall kde ever being able to group dissimilar applications. I don’t recall BeOS being able to either but it’s been over 20 years ago since I used it. I actually don't remember if you could move the windows as a group (in kde), but you could easily tile (or maybe stack, not sure if either is the correct term) them by their title bar, that looked like a bookmark (or tag). https://www.haiku-os.org/docs/...ges/gui-images/gui-s+t.gif" rel="external nofollow">https://www.haiku-os.org/docs/...ages/gui-images/gui-s+t.gif Nice! It makes me sad that it’s not an OS to likely ever gain traction.
  14. Today

  16. Yea, so if you calc the 33% that Uber takes, then it grosses to $35k ($200/day) or $52k ($400/day). I am also assuming your calcs take into account 261 working days in the year, which it seems you have calculated that. $35k for a part-time job is pretty good if you consider what you make at McDonald's or some other fast food place. You can easily net $200 a day. I have done it. If you drive full time and 7 days a week you can net over $100k a year. And since you control when you drive with Uber you can work all 365 days. Why do you care what Uber takes as long as you get a decent amount too. If you can net $100k a year does it really matter that Uber got $30k out of you $130k gross?
  17. Yazoo

    Are these temps too high?

    Its an i7 3930K Sandy Bridge-E. However I had been running it stock 3.2 GHz for the past year or so.
  18. Useless to you. I use them every day. I also doubt Virtualbox had any issue with hyper-v. Nox is probably a type 1 hypervisor and you cannot use a type 1 inside a type 1. Ever. It was probably the issue. Starting with 1809 MS offered to make it's virtual platform opened as a feature so things like Android Studio can run nested or just use Hyper-v for some system calls. It's not Oracle's fault for being behind and not supporting it. Oracle doesn’t need to support hyper-v though. It is a type 2 hypervisor and can run on top of hyper-v fine. Android Studio needed to start using hyper-v because it only supported Intel Haxm for the longest time and it is a type 1 hypervisor. Constantly turning off hyper-v for other hypervisors gets old after the first time you need to do it.
  19. I know that under certain circumstances users don't update or can't update but MS should try to lessen the number of builds they support. I could understand if the updates were not free but just like the way that Android has become so fragmented, so has Windows 10.....my two cents.
  20. Neowin stop supporting Epic. The Epic store is 40% owned by a Chinese Malware company with ties to the government. There have been countless hacks from users of the store. Also they are being dicks to the PC platform with these anti competitive exclusives

  22. China is Huawei and the chinese are stealing tech and pirating everything. If Huawei is getting this beat-down.... its because they are chinese
  23. That is a feature. Not a bug and has nothing to do with the May update. Hyper-v like VMware vsphere and KMS are type 1 hypervisors not type 2. This means they need to run bare metal underneath the OS as ring -1. Ring 0 is the kernel and ring 3 are the apps like virtual box 😄. This means it must encapsulate the host OS and use your CPUs instructions for itself. To run both you need to use bcedit to create a menu at startup. One with hypervisor on labeled Hyper-v and one with a hypervisor off switch labeled VMware player. Go Google it as I am on a phone now? As for spyware this has been proven false over and over. What the Eula means is when you use cortona or the search bar it will go to bingo duh. Obviously data has to leave and it's no different than Chrome. The rest is just metrics data for improvements with a generic ID for things like system crashes and your event logs. No keystroke logging. Win7 and 8 had this back ported years ago to
  24. Gaming cloud is technically and economically inviable. Usually, a render farm costs $0.5-$1 per hour (a moderate machine, i3 or similar). Let's say 0.5 x 4 hours per day x 23 days = 46 bucks per month. But a console is less powerful and eat less energy. Let's say 1/4 of an i3, so it is around $11 per month. PlayStation Now costs $10 per month (yearly).
  25. irrelevant, huawei owns own expansion technology far before the ban.
  26. You can buy a key for $12 on some sites. It's legit as they buy from business resellers who have purchased separate volume license keys
  27. This build seems to have fixed the USB drive lettering issue, from the looks of things. Hopefully this will be pushed out to everyone soon. I haven't been offered the update on any of my 3 PCs yet.
