    Give it up liberals and move on. If you believe Russia had an inside influence you need to get your head examined.

    All the big companies went all in for political correctness (ie. shut down non pleasant p.o.v). I sincerely hope he wins.

    Actually, it was failing. Comcast was blocking programs it didn't like and Verizon was ruining Netflix. One ISP even blocked Vonage. This stopped as soon as the FCC stepped in. It's pretty convenient that you seem to have forgotten what happened just a few years ago.

    To be fair, (even though the guy's memo doesn't actually mention this) biological inferiority is definitely a factor in some career paths. When I was in the Army, females even had a lower physical fitness standard. I had to run two miles in a little over 15 minutes, they had something like 18 or 20 minutes. I had to do a minimum of 42 pushups in 2 minutes, they only had to do like 15-20. I always thought it was stupid because at the end of the day, I don't care if the women feel discriminated against or not, I want to know that the person next to me, male or female, can perform and would be capable of carrying or dragging me out of danger if they had to, and holding females to a different standard out of fear of being called "sexist" is a disservice to the men who have to make up the difference and, in some cases, trust those women with their lives. That's not to say there aren't women who are capable of performing at that level, there most definitely are and I applaud them (I had a female friend who could run 13 minute 2 miles), but the standards should be the same, and if that means less women in certain fields of work, then so be it.

    I don't know much about TechCrunch, but the very first sentence of that article tells me a lot about them when they claim the memo said women are "biologically less capable of engineering". Anyone who read the memo knows it doesn't say that. In fact, it tries to give suggestions of how to reduce the gender gap.

    I'd seriously think about it, but I don't trust Microsoft to not suddenly pull support for something that isn't their core business (e.g. Windows or Office). Then I'd be left with a $300 paperweight.

    Considering the fact that Microsoft has signaled the end of Windows Mobile, this is hardly astonishing or even newsworthy.

    My personal prediction is that a few years from now, Microsoft will start a new streaming music service and it will have features that make people wonder why they didn't just invest the time and resources in their old product, Groove. That service will also fail.

    This pretty much will be my last time I visit this site. I have been a long time reader, probably since the site started. It has only been the last couple years that slowly a good portion of the articles have devolved into left leaning political slants with no sound or factual basis and this article sums up my statement perfectly. You still refer to his memo as an "anti-diversity" memo. Further, if you were a good journalist and have actually read the memo, then you would know it doesn't say the other claims you make: "Damore had claimed that the disparity in payment of wages between men and women existed because the latter was "biologically" less capable than the former." Not one time does it mention that women are less capable than men. The article was pointing a finger at Google's bias, and that women tend to prefer non-tech jobs as opposed to men as the reason why we don't see more women in tech. You should have at least put "anti-diversity" in quotes since it is your opinion and not fact. I'm calling you out Gurkaran Singh. You need to correct your post with facts and not lies. And read the damn memo as it is obvious you didn't. You are just trying to amplify the echo-chamber... another concept described in the memo as well. So long Neowin. You have allowed your bias to ruin this site.

    I didn't even know (or forgot) Microsoft Messaging existed. I just opened it and the initial pop up indicated you can only use it with LTE and can receive SMS texts but not send them? That right? Anyway, another typical experience with UWP apps for me. Open it and than close it shortly after. LOL EDITED

    "He said he plans to focus on these issues to make the site a better experience for all, citing that the Facebook mission statement has always started with "Give people the power."" - Except if you want the default view set to Most Recent - Except if you want to turn off all app and game requests (including new ones) - Except if you want to tell facebook to stop tracking me /tailoring what I see Just a few examples.

    I really don't have any sympathy for a company where their main business practice is to make their customers feel like they have the greatest product to ever live, and then one year later, make them feel like it is the worst product and that they need to upgrade to the slightly newer, slightly better thing. Then tell them that all the things they bought to work with the older thing now no longer works and they must buy all the new things at an ultra premium. Also, when you own hundreds of billions of dollars, 16M just doesn't mean that much anymore.

    Apple have nothing to do with Li-ion batteries having a limited lifespan, and they didn't find a way to charge for battery replacements, because they were already charging for them. or they could have chosen to not slow iphones. and let the battery degrade like every other device

    I think you are confusing instruction code with register bits. The current 64bit instruction code extension is in fact x86-64, that lays on top of x86

    This has everything to do with litigation. No company says "sorry" unless their hand is forced. I'm sure the apologists (you know who) will still spin this to glorify Apple. Whilst it's good that action is being taken, it should never have happened in the first place without communicating to customers. That stinks, plain and simple.
