  3. Pricing is great but I would love to know more about the specs and quality of the keyboard.
  4. Amazon is selling a year of Office 365 Home for $69.99, ends soon by Rich Woods Many savvy customers just don't pay full price for Office 365. That's because at various points throughout the year, you can get it at a discount. Today is Amazon Prime Day, and it's one of those times. Amazon is selling a year of Office 365 Home for $69.99, $30 off of its normal price. The Home variant of Office 365 will get Microsoft's full suite of Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access) for up to six people. You'll also get 1TB of OneDrive storage, and each of the five people you can share it with will also get a terabyte of cloud storage. Naturally, you also get access to the Office apps on mobile platforms, such as iOS and Android. There's a bit of a catch though. This is a Lightning Deal on Amazon, so you'll want to act quickly. Once the deal is gone, you'll have to wait until the next one to get a discount on Office 365, and there's no telling when that will be. Discounts on the suite of productivity apps do happen often enough though. To check out the deal on Amazon, you can find it here.
  5. Microsoft is making improvements to Azure reliability by João Carrasqueira Microsoft has published a new post on its Azure blog, where Chief Technical Officer Mark Russinovich reveals that the company's cloud services have been running at an average 99.995% uptime over the past year. The number may seem fairly high, but with the increased reliance of companies and people on cloud infrastructure, any failure or problem, such as the one that happened at the beginning of May, is one too many for most people. Microsoft acknowledges this, and as such, the blog post goes to announce that the company has created a new Quality Engineering team inside Azure, which will be working alongside the existing Site Reliability Engineering team. The new team will set out to develop new ways to make the platform more reliable and prevent incidents such as the one mentioned above. To that endeavor, there are a few initiatives already underway. Microsoft is investing in safe deployment practices that involve longer testing through various phases to ensure that changes are deployed safely. The company is also working on zero-impact and low-impact maintenance procedures, greatly reducing or eliminating downtime completely during update processes, for example. To make sure services are ready to deal with failures, Microsoft is injecting faults into its services more frequently before they're made public, and it's also planning to give customers the ability to do this on their own. Microsoft is also working to expand availability zones, which provide even more reliability to its customers. Currently, they're available in Azure's 10 largest markets, and Microsoft is hoping to bring them to the next 10 by 2021. It's also providing storage-account failover options to customers so that each organization can choose whether to prioritize data retention or time to restore when things go wrong. Microsoft has typically prioritized data retention, which caused some outages to last longer than some would like. Lastly, there's Project Tardigrade, which was first announced at this year's Build. This will allow Azure to detect hardware failures or memory leaks that can cause systems to crash, and freeze the virtual machine before it does. This allows the service to move the workload to a healthy host.

    (Edit) This is a rush product. They took an existing community open source PS1 emulator, customized it. They chose the PAL versions of the games instead of the NTSC which would of been slighter better quality. In addition, it didn't take long for people to discover the open source emulator running it and how to access it's original menu / interface. You even have to supply your own USB / AC Adapter.
  12. A game that glorifies killing with grotesque grit is going "woke" on us and preaching anti-smoke ideals... I'd rather listen to Bill Cosby lecture the world on how to treat women, thank you very much. Almost as bad as Mortal Kombat's "wokeness". (In case you missed it, they decried excessive female nudity in their own game while simultaneously sexually glorifying almost every male character in the process with... excessive male nudity) You can't make this crap up.

    Is my USB key dying?

    Sounds like you have something else going on. No, you won't lose files from removing devices/drivers from device manager. However, it also probably won't resolve your issue.

    Is my USB key dying?

    no you wouldn't lose data. the driver is just how the computer reads the USB; it doesn't effect the physical media. some USB drives have a read-only switch on them; I'd look it over to see if yours has one and flip it to see if that helps

    Is my USB key dying?

    I can't believe this! Both of my external USB hdd's are now saying "the disk is write-protected" when I try to paste any file to them. 😣 So I want to uninstall the drivers, to try and fix this, but I just wanna ask, I don't actually lose files when I uninstall drivers in device manager?
  20. Windows 10 19H2 build 18362.10005 lets third-party voice assistants work on the lock screen by Rich Woods Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18362.10005 to the Slow ring. It's the latest and second build from the 19H2 development branch, the first of which was released to the Slow ring two weeks ago. While 19H2 is considered to be a feature update, it will be a minor one that focuses on quality instead of big new features. That's also why it's shipping in the form of a cumulative update, not changing the major build number from 18362. This build contains a few minor new features, but one that's fairly significant is that third-party voice assistants can now work above the lock screen. These new features are turned off by default, and will likely be turned off by default when 19H2 ships, as was reported previously. Here's the full changelog: Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios This update includes 5 fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation. A fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS. Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from in-tune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users. A change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen. It also contains the fixes from this month's Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 version 1903. If you're on the Slow ring, today's build will arrive through Windows Update. If you're not, you can use the Windows Insider Program page in Settings to get started.

    Sony's PlayStation Classic console discounted to $19.99

    the article doesn't state discontinued; it states discounted, aka on sale. edit: there are other articles when I google though that state manufacturing was discontinued back in April. You may not like it but it makes sense as the product was a flop. They didn't include very good games in my or many others' opinions.

    Best emulator you will get for the price for PS1 games. Takes all of less then 5 minutes to set up with no issues, actually been impressed by it
  23. I would buy this... $200 is a fair price point for qwerty, unlike the bb..
  24. Most shops dont need to accept £50, currently they only are required to accept £20 notes and below. If you get done with a fake £50 it can be a high loss of earnings for small retailers.
  25. They are discontinuing it already? What!? Why?! I hate when companies make knee-jerk decisions like this. They need to slow down and look carefully at what they are doing.
  26. After Brexit, we will see more of these notes when the pound shops become the £50 shops
