    To me, this smacks of Windows Phone days when Google went out of their way to not only make sure that Google services like YouTube were not available on the platform, but to shut down any third party that attempted to make such an app. I'm guessing they see the Surface Pro X as a threat to their Chromebooks and tablets.

    Their problem is most gamers are on Windows 7 You must be an old gamer. Check steam stats.

    These "analysts" love making these baseless claims in order to gather attention to themselves. The final designs are likely nowhere near complete and a random analyst certainly wouldn't have access to it. There's no way Apple would dramatically increase manufacturing costs for something that has no value-add. They purposely design the phone for ease of manufacturing, so this claim doesn't seem to root from anything. Plus he clearly doesn't realize that increasing quantity of something will bring the cost down. Apple isn't going to start using more sapphire glass unless it's near cost neutral.

    What annoys me is not the censorship; who gives a damn if your website isn't available in China? No, what annoys me is companies that capitulate to the Chinese government and retract whatever annoyed them and got you censored. Stop that nonsense! If China doesn't like what you've posted.. GOOD!

    The people running hardened versions of XP in VMs would disagree with you. I mean some people still have Windows 3.1 systems running in production still, because it's cheaper and more effective to isolate and secure a handful of systems... see below. Some of these upgrades could cost millions. And that's just for that specific utility/infrastructure... the rest of their company is on 7 or 10, but those or 4 or 5 systems running XP would cost an arm and a leg to upgrade. There's a CNC shop down the road running XP in an isolated/hardened network for that specific reason. Not only is the software they used tailored to XP and runs lousy on anything else, their machinery also needs XP to run, the drivers and other plugins don't work in Vista or 7. They'd have basically replace the entire shop with new everything. I imagine this scenario is playing out with all sorts of SMBs and Windows 7. A few more bucks to get a certain number of systems on long term life support is probably worth it... than replacing whole buildings of infrastructure, new software, training, etc... Especially if you can get support as opposed to isolating it and creating additional loops and hurdles for users to access. The lot of you think like consumers when making these statements, and not accounting departments looking at the big picture and bottom lines.

    Oh no, that will upset the mighty U.S of A and their mighty leader. Well he thinks he is a mighty leader, he is just a jumped up child.

    Does it have anything to do with the disastrous update procedures that now make it very difficult to upgrade my systems? I stopped visiting Microsoft's Insider link when it became a display of how many f-bombs the employees could post and their discussion of their private lives regarding their hangovers, their booze and drug consumption. That is not professional.

    Actually Rich, Panos said they partnered with Google and that it runs all the Android apps in the play store. He never actually said the device itself runs Android, did he?

    did you read the article? Thunderbolt is still intel specific until USB4 gets finalized; then any chipset will be able to make use of the protocol

    To be fair, that's not porn. This was about stopping them from seeing hardcore sex and stuff, and I don't really know of anyone saying that violence is fine for them to see either. However it should be up to the parents to prevent that, not the government. Besides most of the porn they would stumble onto isn't on actual porn sites so it's not so easy to stop. Just doing a search for their favorite cartoon characters can turn up a lot of rule34 stuff. Kids should not be on the internet unattended, period.

    Please. 🙄 Not only am I *not* a republican, but I am a gun owner and believe in stand your ground. Both of which require common sense for responsible people. You clearly don’t even understand what stand your ground is. If you don’t know what you are talking about, you would be best off avoiding typing something to make you look ignorant and instead just learn about the subject first. That said, the Sheriff is a damn moron. Charged absolutely are warranted. Accident or not, that is not a legal shooting. Stand your ground doesn’t mean you can kill someone for scaring you.

    Man...the US is ######ed up. It's insane how the initial reaction is to use lethal force. HAPPY BIRTH - BANG BANG. Majority of these guys are simply brainwashed by the fear-mongering NRA who train people to think that EVERY and ANY situation can potentially lead to death. Guy reaches for a candy in his pocket, BANG BANG.

    Sounds like your full of crap. The biggest issue AMD faces when it comes to software like 'Flight Simulation' etc is that these programs generally use Intel optimised compilers that when an AMD CPU is detected, drop to a slower code pathway. Actually, this [Neowin] article is pretty bad and seems to be misinformed.

    Facebook is not a bank or a nation and it can't secure or guarantee anything at all. Like bitcoin, this was a scam intended to create an imaginary commodity based digital pyramid scheme. In this case, these founding companies were going to be the first to "buy in" for $10 million dollars. Kudos to everyone who helped kill this.

    This is exactly the kind of BS I'm talking about. Companies capitulating to Chinese demands on censorship because they fear for their profits.

    I think Aul did the best job, I know I said in the past I didn't think Sarkar was doing that great of a job and got backlash for it... it just felt like with her it was more about her then the product. Even how they introduced her it was here's all these things she does including her fashion and design lines, but not as much about how she was going to make the program better.

    I've had random start menu issues in windows 10 since it came out and every build since! sometimes it just will not open... they supposedly fixed it a while ago by changing the start menu host from suspending but that didn't fix anything, I still see random no opens on tens of systems I work with or manage

    I think OnePlus nailed it with the OnePlus 7 Pro and the popup selfie cam. To me that was by far the nicest phone released this year. If true that would be a bit of a downgrade with the punch hole camera. Regardless i'm still more than happy with my 5T, so no plans to upgrade anytime soon.

    All the fools in here praising Germany’s stupidity in allowing a communist party-controlled company to power their national telecom infrastructure is obnoxiously troublesome... And don’t kid yourselves, Germany did this to save a few bucks, as always, and doesn’t give a ###### about selling out its people to China for those bucks.

    Well that's going to be real fun to fix when the IR LEDs start failing... Given razer's typical quality that's probably around the 1 year mark, just after the warranty has expired.

    Facts to consider: We've never required anyone to prove who they are irl when registering an account at Neowin beyond verifying a real email address Note: unless we started paying them in some form of employment for duties relating to the site like news reporting or server admin The above does not apply to those members which have won prizes in giveaways, who have had to tell us irl contact details, but those details aren't public anyway and not saved in some evil database. Accounts can be spoofed from anywhere in the world and we wouldn't care unless you start breaking our forum rules, and that would only result in restrictions/bans Note: we've had plenty of people pretending to be someone/thing they aren't and the community usually ends up figuring it out anyway. We've suggested in several topics and our privacy statement/TOS and forum rules about taking care about members posting any info that could be used to trace them irl, they did that themselves, we didn't require it we remove these "accidents" on request, so you see we are again offering a service to our members Note: these links are in the footer of every page on Neowin, with exception to the forum guidelines Asking to be GPDR'd is hard to verify unless our moderating team knows from their account/posting style/multiple IPs originating from said country that they actually reside there. Note: Which creates an amusing "problem" in that -- how can we verify that the account holder is an EU citizen if we don't have their personal details/id? Huh? Neowin can "get into trouble" for not acting on GDPR requests, but since all of the above also apply, we don't really have the verifiable info beyond the IP address to prove where the member is from @BudMan to answer your question, because we don't know the person irl who originally had access to the email, it is difficult to prove such things, but such complaints have been handled in the past and a secondary email address, like AIM/MSN or whatever that wasn't changed was proven to be the original account holder, so there are ways to recover "hacked" accounts IN THE PAST IPB forums used to keep everything like a history of changes to a person's account for staff to see, but because everyone got all upset about it, those features are being removed with every new release, soon I think even display name histories will be removed and everyone can live out their wildest dreams of being a permanent troll on the internet with no repercussions for their behavior, because it "hurts their feelings" awww... everyone can become truly anonymous with a flick of the switch. BACK TO EMAIL HACKING @BudMan We already support 2FA so people should use that to protect their accounts on and off the site I recommend it!

    This still makes news? It's the operating system you get when buying certain products. The numbers will increase, if my math is correct. A better headline would be, "What the Hell is Taking Windows 10 so long to reach 1 Billion."
