    Reading that message, it only says "OLD" group messages will be lost. It does not say Group Messages will no longer work in the new improved format. It reads as if the changes mean a new database table structure to support GIF's etc and that the old structure is not able to be converted. So easier to drop it and start fresh.

    Ah, The Sims. So many hours spent building up my character, going through the ranks of a career and getting to the top, having a family, adding extensions to my house and putting a pool in the back garden for the BBQ season...just to then burn it all down and remove the ladder from the pool so that he drowned on a whim. Fun times!

    All of this was worked out on Mac and iPhone years ago. I hope MS works it out for you guys because it‘s a killer feature to be able to do all this from the desktop and have it sync between all your devices.

    Market fragmentation means nothing unless you have supportability which is limited to the latest model. From someone who constantly states that the updates don't have any value to you, this should be a good thing. Update when you need it or require it, and that's fine. The support of Windows 10 versions is there and definitely workable for old versions (to a point) and you don't have to update. 1809 was not a failure.

    Throttling is simple: If you want a powerful machine, then you mustn't pick a slim notebook. Slim notebook = slow machine. It's as simple like that. True... The point here is that there are PC equivalents to the MacBook that are just as light and thin, and yet provide the proper thermal cooling design to run the newer processors faster under load. So if someone is wanting to use Photoshop or do 3D rendering - skip the Macbooks. If they MUST have a Macbook - they would save money buying a slower CPU model that can maintain 'faster' core speeds. Not only is it cheaper, but it runs faster under load. (Remember the single core performance between the i5, i7 and the i9 CPUs is not much different.)

    It would be nice if they expanded this program to cover other structures that could be at risk. There are a lot that are lost without such fanfare (like the Buddha statues the Taliban destroyed). They should just have an "open source" creation of UNESCO Heritage Sites one by one. Archaeologists are already doing careful mapping of older sites, but there are tons. With our collections of satellites and survey tools...

    it's just another media player now; the online services are what was shutdown So may as well use windows media player, better software anyway. Not for touchscreens. i don't have a touchscreen running windows and I can not see myself ever doing so. Ok, i will reword what I said, , windows media player is a better software for me.

    Which can be used to download ISO. It downloads the esd and builds an iso. My way gets you the original iso which will match official checksums. Not a big deal for some, but I like having the official iso. the original 1903 iso from the ms win10 download page has build 18362.30

    it's just another media player now; the online services are what was shutdown So may as well use windows media player, better software anyway. Not for touchscreens. That's the problem, Groove is designed for touchscreens. The application itself lacks many features. There's still no way of dragging and dropping audio files and enqueuing. Even Winamp 1 from 1997 is far more advanced than Groove. That is why I said Windows media player is better. i used to love winamp.

    UNESCO Heritage Sites should have military protection, esp if the taliban are destroying history they don’t agree with. how you send military to protect something to a hostile country where most of the civilian population will try to attack you?

    A private jet produces 3 metric ton of carbon per fly. In comparison, 100 grams of plastic does nothing, it is a drop in the ocean. Lake malawi, the second most bio-diverse body of water on the earth after the oceans, is on track to be barren by 2050 due to plastic pollution. it IS literally a drop in the ocean. and because air travel sucks too doesn't mean this doesn't suck too. that's whataboutism, and it's nonsense.

    Wondering if Microsoft will come up with a surface laptop/book with these 45w processors. Their current line up with the ULV series chips work terribly for anything professional over basic usage.

    I don't think you understand how these updates work. 1809 didn't fail. It's been replaced by a newer version, 1903. What exactly failed with 1809? As to the older Windows 10 versions, excluding 1803, the only reason a user would be on them is due to a rare hardware incompatibility, or they chose not to upgrade.

    Yaaay, more petroleum based landfill material to be transiently held by individuals before heading out on their final destination to destroy the environment. Only you can prevent climate collapse. I use cloth bags to buy my Funko Pops!!!

    Yay, let the throttling continue. I asked a couple of people to find less technical presentations of what how Apple's throttling works and how it affects users. The only consumer oriented material they found to use as a reference was a youtube video from 'Linus Media' about a month ago. It also only addresses and talks about one aspect of the Apple's throttling on these defines, but does offer a real world presentation of the issue and how it harms Mac users by demonstrating the performance drop. There is more to OS X and how Apple limits and ramps/throttles the CPUs in their Macbooks, as there are also features in the Intel CPU and the integrated and dedicated GPUs that are disabled that is misleading to users, and this aspect is not covered by the youtube video from Linux Media, at least not in detail. Go find that video if you are curious why Macbooks run the way they do, what it means for users. I think it also addresses one aspect of why bootcamp/Windows performs slower than OS X on Macbooks by design from Apple.* * Which is also slower than Windows would perform on the same specification of hardware, but from a PC MFRs with proper thermal management and better internal component integration.

    This isn't a Cumulative update, this is a Feature update. ok, well I guess it's not available to "seekers" then. they really shouldn't announce this stuff if it isn't going to be available right away. It is available right away, try manually pressing the 'Check for update button' or use the 'Creation Tool/Windows Update Assistant Tool' to upgrade. I pressed the check button, but no update for me either. It's NOT live for everyone.

    CBA and NAB only did this because of the bad publicity around the Royal Commission. They want to look more customer focused now so providing Apple Pay helps. The only reason the banks didn’t jump on is because Apple Pay eats into their transaction costs. I expect WBC to cave to pressure soon, customers want Apple Pay.

    WebRender is included, but not active yet. If you want to try out this feature you have to change the value in the config file from false to true. Look for gfx.webrender.all and double click to change to true. A restart of Firefox is required to activate this change.

    Trying to make their products accessible to all is "wasting everyone's time"? Just wow. Never said that trying to make their product accessible to all is wasting everyone time, but what will you make accessible to all when you don't even have any good games? And by that I meant comparing to competition. Hate to burst your bubble, but the world doesn't revolve around you Your definition of what constitutes a good game is not everyone's definition. It's got the games I want to play, and has the most capable hardware to play them well. Simple as that really. p.s. This news article centres around accessibility, so I can be forgiven for thinking that's what you referring to. As it happens it just simply off topic.
