    Queue the snarky Windows Central duo insisting Cortana is 'still alive and well' because they've seen things that us mere mortals haven't, and that it's just transitioning. Like the other thing they keep insisting they're right about, and everyone else is wrong.

    I hate this “software as a service” BS. I’ve got enough people with their hands in my pocket on a monthly/yearly basis; it will be a cold day in H-E-double-hockey-sticks before I pay $50 yearly for a word processor and spread sheet. Glad I purchased Office Pro 2019 through the HUP before this moronic move was made. My Macs have Pages and Numbers so it will be bye bye Microsoft office once my PC Hits the dust bin. Unbelievable.

    PROfessional price increase incoming. Looks like I’ll be sticking with my “old” iPhone X for another year. The smartphone world has become boring to me.

    Or maybe it's not message board's fault and entirely ######ed up people's fault? Does anyone know how many murdering idiots posted ###### on Facebook and Twitter? Who terminated their ######? No one. So cut the crap with moral bs when there is one set of rules for some and another for others. Here, Facebook and the likes having this dumb immunity because they are just so huge they are untouchable, but everyone else can get ######ed because some lunatic posted something on your site. Coz censoring ###### prevented so many shootings in America, right? These idiots will ALWAYS find inspiration to kill people from somewhere. I mean, it's not like they are rational people or anything...

    Just goes to show, OEM's could support their phones for years if they wanted to.

    I may be entering "get off my lawn" territory, but I don't think these events are funny. Twitter, or any social media platform shouldn't be THAT important to someone .

    At this point, if you told me Facebook hired people to break into people's houses so they'd know what brand underwear people buy, I'd believe it.

    This is nice of them, helps get rid of stock no one was buying and Google can get a tax write off.

    This is long overdue, but it's likely only being done because "Tiny hands" can't handle people saying mean things about him.

    They did. I think it was called Windows XP. It's dead now, and fortunately staying that way.

    I get that this is supposed to be funny but I can't help but feel like this girl needs help. Addiction to social media can be quite problem. As the story says it almost resulted in her burning her house down.

    I still like live tiles. Especially weather, stock and news apps are a perfect application for live tiles. I like the quick overview in the morning provided by those apps.

    I was reading this article today. One of the reasons they used, is that talking on the phone causes you to visualise what is being talked about so it was a distraction. What I couldn't figure out, is how it's different to having a conversation with someone in the car?

    Got nothing to do with that, the 'autopilot' is what makes this story interesting as well as that idiot saying they're the safest car available. What these accidents show is that no they are not the safest car and no autopilot is not a feature you can trust, which everyone basically knew already. Thanks, I literally lol'd at comments saying we are influenced by big oil or Russia, lol like I am rolling around in babes, bribe money and bling! Lol

    Surely the easy fix is just disable file access by default in normal and incognito modes by default, and if you enable it in normal mode it adds delays and entropy to prevent it. I mean if a site is desperate to know if you're browsing in incognito mode and resorts to testing the write speed I think the bigger problem is that such a site exists and people actually use it, instead that site should be buried (along with it's creators)

    Except there were many years, post 2000, where VBScript along with ASP (pre .Net) where IE6 and IIS could do things that PHP and JavaScript could not. (Features that date back to 1996/1998, yet were not adopted until nearly 10 years outside of IE and IIS as everyone was avoiding MS's W3C and other standard contributions. *cough Ajax*) Microsoft doesn't just arbitrarily create new languages to be dicks, as it is work and cost, they do this when the current offerings do not meet the needs. As for 2019, see... TypeScript

    This just makes it more confusing, they should have left it the distinction.

    "Google engineers spat and cursed as they were forced by their leathery winged managers to perform the merge but their anger turned to shrieks of pain as they swore that the MS code burned their hands and eyes as it entered their code base. Upon completion they scurried back into the darkness still hissing their pain and disgust."

    We all know the drill. When Microsoft says its feature complete, what it really means is that it's ready to be beta tested by consumers!

    A comment that completely ignores the fact that Minecraft is on a wide range of hardware covering a wide range of capabilities just to take a dig at a single platform, well done, you've made yourself look like an idiot. So you're saying that every cross platform game has to downgrade themselves to console standards...and YOU'RE calling someone an idiot???? If the gaming industry had to adhere to XBOX standards it would be truly sad given how garbage that console is...even compared to other consoles.

    So they cancelled it on PC because xbox performance sucked... Why not just have made it PC exclusive?

    It's been quite a ride. Today marks my 10th anniversary since I registered on Neowin. Today I just wanted to say thank you. This community has been a life-changer for me. I remember I discovered Neowin when I was 16 (Now I'm 26) through a warez site (haha) , Katz.cd. I had that site recommended from a very good friend of mine. Katz.cd used to fetch Neowin's feed and display it on its site. I would click on it through time to time, and later on, managed to enter into the site by writing the URL. I spent some good months lurking, until I decided to comment out and show the whole Internet how much I knew about tech (arrogance at its finest). Oh boy, that was the best worst decision ever. I thought I knew it all. The people around me didn't know anything about technology, so I thought most of the world would be like that. Not only I didn't know a thing, but I had the balls to pity and overcome several individuals in the comment section. It wasn't long, until the true Pros of Neowin came out of the ashes and taught me a lesson... 9 times. I learned how valuable was experience, how things aren't the way they appear to be, to respect my elders, as they definitely knew much more than I did. That was transformative for me, as I realized how little I knew, and ever since then, I have become a student of life. I respect and learn from anybody who is willing to teach me something valuable. Thanks, sincerly Jose.

    That's some seriously weak definitions there designed to horribly badly cover an obvious problem. "No bank accounts or social security numbers were compromised ..." ... except all the bank accounts and social security numbers that were. I can't wait to hear the bank robbery report that says "No money was stolen except all of the small green pieces of paper that followed an improper exit path from the premises."

    Lol, so basically.... Apple: Hey Intel, your modems suck, we are done with you forever! Intel: Dang, they are our only customer, I guess we should close shop. Also Intel: TBH, our stuff did kind of suck, I guess we will have to sell cheap. Apple: We are interested!! Intel: 🤷‍♂️

    Live tiles aren't gone. See the little icons on the left? The one above the selected is for the tile layout... And, this was pushed to all of the insider rings, but 32-bit only so most people won't see it.

    Should be 100 billion and then maybe it would do some good, like put Facebook out of existence!! Nice to see the U.S hitting them fairly hard though.

    Then don’t steal content; pay for it by subscribing to Neowin! Watching a news story which they made for public is not stealing in the United States! But may be it is, in whatever hell-hole where you are from. And why would I pay for a news story which I can read at couple of other places for free! Jeez man, that's a bit extreme. Well, that person just accused me of stealing something! Otherwise I am not big on personal attacks But anyways just planned on switching to TNW. Good idea. I may transition over there myself. Its funny how they deleted my original comment! Hey Rich if you are reading the thread: Let's not be too greedy, one msg at entry of the site is okay! But every page is a literal harassment. I have been here for 9+ years hopefully you guys will change your mind, or else users will!
