    I’m sure the people who made this font all work on Windows 10 and by you complaining about it here, they all empathize and will get right on it. I mean they are all reading this comment section and understand.

    For motherboards to recognize its "new" default ratios, voltages, etc. And also to have the latest microcode baked in.

    Vista was released when hardware couldn't really match its demand ... but I like to think it pushed hardware manufactures. Just think...pretty much any hardware that could run Vista then...can run 10 now. Anyway, nothing really wrong with Vista ... if you had the hardware to run it. It was stable and better than XP.

    Literally no other phone manufacturer does this but you are willing to bash Apple on this. Where is your outcry on others doing the same thing? My "outcry" on Android's ###### gets posted in Android OS release posts, of course. Meanwhile, when it comes to support periods, another poster asked what I would like to see...and I answered him. Microsoft is still releasing Operating System upgrades that work just fine on 10+ year old hardware and their OS integration issues are many orders of magnitude greater than Apple's. You're literally acting as an apologist for ALL of the companies doing these really ###### things to all of us. Why? Wouldn't you prefer it work in the consumer's interest (like it used to) instead of this ever shrinking planned obsolescence window where the hardware barely changes and the operating system barely changes and yet your time limit arbitrarily runs out on having your device secured against attacks?! MS is not releasing any updates on 10+ year old machines with the software they came with. Now if you replace that software with another OS, you changed the parameters as it’s no longer the same OS. Any other examples? Because that one doesnt hold any water, especially since mobile device updates contain firmware is a lot more specific than a generic OS the user can manage the updates with. Im not an apologist, I am a realist. ps- please link this same argument you made in an Android thread. Thanks! #1) If you buy an Apple device FROM Apple, 3 years ago, they are really pushing THEIR OWN definitions a bit for consumers and it is misleading. PERIOD. #2) There is NO reason Apple could not provide support for older devices and hardware, even if they had a second lower tier build. How many BILLIONS do you think it costs to maintain a separate branch (EVEN IF) there hardware issues that required a second branch. #3) If Microsoft was doing this, you and everyone here and around the world would have their hair on fire. Even with Windows 10, by NOT supporting a couple of 10 YEAR OLD CPUS - people were crazed about Microsoft not supporting older hardware, and this is when it was a compiler security limition, not a feature or something arbitrary. #4) Microsoft does provide support for OLD HARDWARE and there has been a full upgrade path for devices that shipped with Windows XP. Even Pentium 4s from 2005 work just fine with Windows 10, as well as video cards, networks cards, sound cards that are 20 years old. Bottom line - Apple could do better and SHOULD do better, and with people becoming their defenders and apologists, then they have no reason to do better. So keep defending what they do, it is ONLY HURTING APPLE customers. I avoid their crap 99% of the time, and this will not affect me whatsoever; however, I would still like to see Apple do better, as I know a lot of people that do use their products and I hate seeing them get screwed, time and time again.

    I dunno, but the character combining would drive me nuts when you are coding... after many years of += <= >= and -> you kind of expect it to be multiple characters.. it's also a wider font then consolas which feels odd

Big LOLs at trying to blame Europe complaining “they won’t let us go” haha. please, this is all on the heads of the British public. Fun watching the chaos from down under though.

Shame people aren't more animated about the money we waste paying off the national debt, roughly what we pay into the EU but without the many benefits.

    They sell millions of them as well. Still the best tablet you can purchase today. Really can you show me the research on that. When a cheaper laptop is now like a tablet pretty much and can do the same and more things. Cheaper Android tablets? Android tablets suck. I'll take an Ipad over an Android tablet anytime. At least the OS would be up to date.

    That was my response to your attempt at whataboutism. Ahem. Since you have lost the debate regarding Apple's reprehensible policies, you keep attempting to move the goalposts to Android's own issues...which I have clearly acknowledged here and elsewhere. Specifically, when Android did the same thing rendering the Note 4 obsolete. LMAO. I lost the debate. Ok. 😂😂

    Um, you might have bought into Apple's definitions of 'graphic intense'. Like when they were calling their GPUs XBox One S 'class'. Even when Apple can say, we have XYZ TFLOPS or some other common GPU 'type' benchmark - they omit mentioning that they the GPU is half precision as well as having other performance and feature limitations that YANK their GPUs from the 'advertised' class they want people to believe. An iPad, let alone most Macs cannot run games that are as graphically intense as the 2012 XBox One, let alone the revised XBox One S, and are generations behind the XBox One X that can provide GTX 1080 ti and RTX 2070 gaming performance. For example, last years iPad Pro was announced as having - 'XBox One GPU Class' - and yet in Graphics it had trouble keeping up with a Surface Pro tablet with an integrated Intel GPU. And sadly, this is even in the most optimal of testing where the benchmark was artificial, so mobile GPU limitations were not used/touched and the benchmark was highly optimized for Metal - something most games will never be. Now, getting flight simulator on a iOS device - this is actually possible, but it isn't because of the 'FAST CPU/GPU' from Apple, it would be if Microsoft optimizes a version of OS X Metal, and not Vulkan, and uses Microsoft graphic framework scaling technologies that allows a high end game to easily run on older and less functional hardware. And this could happen. However, it will look sparse and NOTHING like it will look on the XBox One S or an entry level PC. Appreciate you detail response but I am talking from a market prospective. iPads and iPhones are very popular, it have more market share than MacOS computers combined. Microsoft can’t pretend that they will make a lot of money by just selling to pc computers and Xbox devices only. We are not in 2005, they are 15 years late. But they don't want to deliver some crap app for the masses, MS FlightSim has a legacy and a huge following throughout the flightsim community. While yes this is about making money, it also appears they are out to please the flightsim base. I'm sure there are plenty of other FlightSim apps in the App Store already that do the best they can with the hardware/controls put in front of them, no need for MS to venture down that path.

Give your high and mighty attitude a rest. MS DID DO THIS, look no further than Windows Mobile and later Windows Phone. 2. How well are MS mobile customers supported now? Hmmm? 3. I’m not the one throwing a fit over support so please direct your comment to where it belongs by reading the thread.

    Shots were certainly fired with the XB1 / PS4 launch this time around. Sony: "This is how you lend a friend a game" *hands friend the game* Microsoft: ... All good fun though if you don't take it too serious. And ironically, that is also how it worked with XBox, the only difference was connectivity. What we (consumers) lost, was the entire model the XBox was going to use. All physical and digital games were equalized, with the ability to 'share' and 'sell' both physical and digital games equally. Now sharing is still a bit of a mess with digital titles and there is zero market for digital sales now. So "Yay! - Sony's marketing killed significant features, that even PS users would one day want. Anyone ever ask why MIcrosoft drastically changed their model with the backlash? Well, it was easier and cheaper for them to mimic the low-tech way Sony was doing business, instead of creating a market and model that made digital content EQUAL to physical content. (This is why non-Sony people chimed in, like from Stream/Valve as it would put pressure on them to build a model for digital sales and physical media equalization.) *Slow claps for consumers that 'forced' Microsoft to regress the technology, and sadly, shakes head.* Microsoft had too much control with that model, from what was announced only certain stores would be able to deactivate your game so it could be re-sold. This essentially killed the used game market as you'd never be able to buy cheap games on Ebay for example. We gained a region free console out of all that though, as the Xbox One was going to be region locked before hand. I’ve taken advantage of that a couple of times, so that was a nice bonus. From a preservation point of view you can also buy a disc, put it any Xbox One console a play it, long after Xbox Live will doesn't exist for that console anymore, just like with the original Xbox. That just wouldn't be possible without hacks if activating games against an online account. Some sort of digital game sharing feature could still be implemented, digital doesn't have to be tied to physical for that to happen. Overall I think we got the best outcome from that, Microsoft have actually created a good service with Game Pass for people who just want a selection of digital content to play.

    No, it wouldn't as you have no issues with the onboard video, it would point to a compatibility issue with the NVidia card(s) and the rest of your setup.

    You are not the only one and AMD was aware of the problem. They fixed it few days ago with new microcode that is being delivered to OEMs and should be included with near future motherboards BIOS updates. My figures are with the latest microcode / ABBA update that is supposed to fix the problem. From the videos I've seen with reviewers testing the new BIOS updates for various motherboards it looks like under a few (low load) circumstances the 3900X will boost up to the advertised boost speeds for a couple of seconds, but I definitely wouldn't consider it "fixed". A bit like putting a bandage on a broken leg, it was the bare minimum AMD needed to do to avoid a class action lawsuit for false advertising.

    Oh look an apple hater thinks hes edgy. Newsflash, the iPhone Pro models cost the same as last years XS ones...so..No reason to think they'll increase it for the iPad Pros. If you don't have anything intelligent to say then unplug your keyboard.

At least the OS would be up to date. How do they suck? As far as I understand and talk to people. People do pretty much the same thing on an Android that they do on an IPad tablet and they see no difference. They are slow, inconsistent, don't get updated, bog down over time to name a few. I've owned several android based tablets and several Ipads and the ipads all remain fluid. The Android based tablets all became slow. They suck. Not mine. Had my Android forever it works great. Same thing with my friends IPad. He had his forever works great. I found when Android updates the updates they come out with new stuff. When Apple updates their system it's the same stuff, or stuff that my friend thought was new but was there all along. The keyword is "updates". At least iPads get timely security updates AND the latest and greatest Major OS for at least 4+ years. While MAYBE that's the case with SOME android tablets today, it never was before. As far which average user is smarter based on which tablet they own, it doesn't matter, 98% are technology illiterate. Go up to someone on the street with an Android tablet and ask them which version of Android their tablet is running. Good luck with that!

Sorry I'm not one of those people. I'm actually computer literate and smart and will never own a product like Apple. 🤣 @ the fanboy rhetoric. You can choose not to like something but don’t pull in garbage like computer literacy into it. Yes I'm a fanboy and not afraid to admit it. I do think though (and if they do a study I will be proven right), more Android people are more computer literate than Apple people. From personal experience, that has been far from the case so I’d welcome the same study. In fact, I’d go so far as to say mobile OS choice has almost nothing to do with computer literacy.

    Windows 10 must be a nightmare for it's coders. No proper Q&A, Agile, a Behemoth of a platform. Microsoft should rethink how it handles the Updates really fast. The last few years haven't been forgiving for MS semi-recent practices on and for Windows.

    I also noticed. Performance/Dollar with "Relative 2x performance" against a CPU at unknown clocks, no mention of power what so ever. If you have 95W Ryzen, it will most likely consume 80-110W. Intel measures TDP at stock clock (why do you think 9400F is only 2.9 stock, to hit TDP This image is great https://img.purch.com/image005...WdpbmFsL2ltYWdlMDA1LnBuZw==
