    I think Netflix is at the point where the majority of people know what they offer and are actively seeking them out. The loss of new accounts who don't want the hassle of going to a web browser is going to be far, far less than the 15% they are giving to Apple.

    jesus christ this is getting ridiculous. How can we outright ban the sales of something without ANY kind of concrete evidence that they're doing wrong?!?!? Both companies make great mobile products and both (Huawei in particular) play important rolls in wireless communication technology development. Other than fear of competition there's no real good reason to ban them that I can see ... edit: HOW IN THE HELL can this be approved under national emergency?!? that makes ZERO sense..

    "blames China" and "blames battery replacements" .... um, no.... They should blame themselves for their "building a product that lacked excitement" and "pricing" for lower sales.

    Anyone crying tears at this point should just be ignored. XP has been dead for so long that it’s corpse is now fertiliser.

    Seriously, Mozilla, I'm sticking with Firefox because we need multiple browser engines, but please don't do stuff like this. It looks really bad and it will drive users away. If you need money, just ask for it, don't push advertisements in our faces.

    Just wait a few more months and it’ll drop to 250 then fire sale after they realize no one really cares for Microsoft hardware. Because - clearly, nobody ever bought a Surface or an XBOX product.

    Literally every professional software developer knows and understands the answer to this question. Sometimes it's as simple as not handling a specific condition correctly in your code, and that condition didn't happen to the development team while they were implementing something. Happens all the time. I've seen bugs where a particular piece of code didn't work, but only at exactly midnight. That bug wasn't caught until a customer scheduled a restart of the software at midnight and it randomly failed to start. It happened more often on their faster servers because they were able to execute the buggy code before 00:00:01.. Again, if you don't develop software and don't go through these sorts of things, it's easy to wonder why things break.

    Your comments reflect a deep lack of understanding of OS technology, and instead betray the usual knee-jerk "I'm cool if I hate Microsoft" attitude that some few still think is mature. Try this, if you're going to spew your hatred about aspects of Windows 10, at least include some details. For example, 1. Explain how Windows 7 is more reliable than Windows 10, or how Windows 10 is less reliable and needlessly complex. I really don't think you understand the meaning of either of those two words if you believe Windows 10 is more complex to use than Windows 7. 2. What details do you know about Windows 10 security enhancements that make them invalid (I'm assuming by your "pffft" you don't agree that Windows 10 is more secure than Windows 7). How is Windows 10 less secure then? 3. Name four fundamental problems with Windows 10 that remain since its initial launch. I realize that these will be entirely based on your opinion, but I would like to know what you think the word 'fundamental' means in this context. In the end, if you hate Windows so much, why bother reading articles about it and posting comments, especially when the article is about a generally positive aspect of the OS. Are you so self-consumed that you need to chime in on these articles with your anger and hatred? I just don't get it. I can see commenting on an article about something negative about Windows or Microsoft, especially if you've experienced the issue that is being talked about. But to feel like you have to gush out your disdain in an article like this makes it look to me like you have other issues. Or maybe you're just young and inexperienced and still think it's cool to rag on Microsoft for everything they do. I'm sure that if their adoption rate was much better, you'd simply say that it's because Microsoft shoved it down everyone's throat.

    Go look at the displays at banks, other financial institutions, insurance agencies, and medical sites---Windows-XP is very alive and well. They can hardly afford the unreliability of WIndows-10. A few have moved to Windows-7. "They can hardly afford the unreliability of WIndows-10." Have you ever USED Windows XP??? Or Windows 10? Because that statement is brain melting.

    That is hardly anything to gloat over. It is certainly not due to free choice by users; but forced down their throats by Microsoft. [Given free choice when buying a new PC, I'm sure many users would prefer the reliability of Windows-7 over the erratic behavior and needless complexity of Windows-10. As for the much-touted "security enhancements," pffft.] When MS decides to fix fundamental problems that remains since Windows-10's initial launch, then maybe its adoption rate will become better.

    getspopcorn.gif - In before security through obscurity. - In before macs aren't secure at all and the citations of 2 or 3 exploits that require user elevation. Macs are a pretty secure platform for every day computer use. You don't need to bother with a virus scanner, especially if you're a responsible downloader. But Windows isn't insecure either, stay patched and don't download stupid things. If you're buying a mac for the sake of feeling secure, it's probably a waste of money.

    You mean morons are finally getting tired of having a neverending $50/month fee attached to their already overpriced cell phone plans so they can see a larger number on a benchmark app?! The added double digit PPI increase really makes it to where those numbers can really stretch out.

    $50 off isn't a fire sale, it's a normal holiday sale actually.

    Merry Christmas. Since the only reason for this day is Jesus Christ, saying Happy Holidays is just silly.

    Why Should You Trust Us? Because we are trained journalists who have spent our careers dedicated to the profession. So, the problem with the journalist ethics is solved by trusting in the same journalists. Sure.

    Online advertising has gotten seriously obnoxious! The amount of bloody crap that is there on so many websites is absolutely insane! Not to mention all the tracking.

    The purpose of the lenses are to add multiple focal lengths to mimic an optical zoom lens...something you can't add in a smartphone the traditional way due to it's thin nature. They're essentially taking the "zoom lens" and spreading it throughout the phone. Any zoom done with fixed lens is done so through digital zoom, which is nothing more than cropping...which equates to loss of image quality.
