    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.

    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?

    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.

    LOL What a joke!!! Are you serious? If anything, they need to stop with this politically correct trash and stop hiring incompetent stupid people with weird agendas. All she ever did was post stupid politcally correct rants on Twitter and contributed to absolutely nothing to Windows or the Insider program for that matter. Why is she stepping away? It's more like they saw she did nothing at all for the past few years so they kicked her out, but made it look like she is the one making the decision. It's usually the right decision when you are incompetent and do absolutely nothing for years and still somehow get paid for that. Nutella also seems to be running Windows downhill so he isn't much better either. They need to hire someone who it the type of "no-bullsh*t" type of person who is there to do honest, serious work and pulls out Microsoft and that joke Windows 10 out of that mess and restore it's decent name back to the Windows XP and Windows 7 days. They also had that idiot CEO, whose name I forgot that came up with the "brilliant" ideas for Windows 8 - remove the Start Menu, add a "Start Screen" that is big, cumbersome, useless, ugly and takes up your whole screen. Then when people hated Windows 8, they fired that idiot. The sad thing is Windows 10 picked up where Windows 8 left off with the ugly, boring square/rectangle design that somehow looks worse than Windows 98 for some reason. Instead of going back to Windows 7's style with a proper Start Menu, they decided to "improve" Windows 8 with Windows 10, by skipping Windows 9, just because. Unless they hire someone competent who is not a nutjob like Dona Sarkar that can actually contribute something worthwhile, Windows will only be going downhill.

    Enemy? It's competition. And the fact that they embraced Android is good news. This will help improve it even further. I know it's competition but when Microsoft started with the windows phone... they thought that they will be able to succeed and beat Android. Windows Phone’s history starts BEFORE Android even existed. It failed, but it wasn’t a new thing they started up in response to Android. I am talking the phone with the windows OS mobile installed not the Windows CE phones that they had 20 years ago. It doesn’t matter. You said it was in response to Android. No it wasn’t. It was an evolution of an existing product.
