    And they will continue to make these "unintentional" mistakes because they get away with it.

    This practice has been obvious to any discerning Edge user as well. (it used to be a fun party trick to change the Edge user agent string to Chrome and watch everything magically work--until Google got smarter about sniffing out the browser.) Google's dominance of the web with sites like Search, Gmail, Docs and YouTube give it enormous power over browser choice. It's astonishing to me that more attention has not been given to this obvious abuse of market power. Microsoft eventual response--to adopt Chromium--was a completely out of the box move that probably greatly surprised Google. By guaranteeing compatibility with Chrome-only websites, plus doing the right things for the Windows platform, Edge has a real chance of taking away Chrome market share for the first time. Hopefully Microsoft will continue to work with Mozilla to help Firefox support modern Windows features as Mozilla has been doing more recently.

    It might last for 5 years with folding but I bet the software updates won't last as long.

    I'm offended! Seriously, where is the harm here? I quite like the iFixit message, they know those guys will go and try to tear the thing down and put it back together.

    Exactly as I've said from the beginning. Horrible idea, horribly executed and not ready for prime time. You have to start some where and they took the first leap. I don't see a problem here. You will always have a few issues when you develop something new and cutting edge. If we didn't have some kinda try and fail in innovation we wouldn't be typing here as we speak. I don't believe the price is right it shouldn't be but maybe $1200 tops though. If the phone breaks mere days after first use, it's not even worth $10, let alone 2k, or even the 1.2k you speak of. You don't "start somewhere" by offering consumers garbage, you extensively test that new technology in the long term before you release it. This isn't some random software glitch that can be fixed in an update. People need to stop thinking it's okay for consumers to be testing monkeys for corporations in their endless greedy quest for money.

    This is a monument that drives revenue, they are not doing it for Christianity. They could also use a tax break on some cash

    I think you are remembering slightly wrong. The U.S. Government sued Microsoft for monopoly and ultimately precipitated what Vanity Fair calls "Microsoft's lost decade". But Microsoft never did any of the filthy things companies do these days. For example, Microsoft was sued for including IE with Windows. Nowadays, Google and Apple do this for their own browsers but, also prevent other web browsers to compete on their platform on equal grounds. You can install any browser on iPhone, but that browser's engine must be Apple's WebKit and there is no way to make it the default web browser.

    There is NOTHING in this world that would convince me to use Chrome. Or anything Google for that matter. They became a slimy dishonest mega corporation. Firefox all the way. There are some good alternatives, but they all use Chromium and that alone gives me this rather revolting sensation knowing that I'm indirectly supporting Google by using those... To make matter worse, Chrome isn't even all that good. Interface is retarded, it has pretty much no features and to have any of them you need like 20 extensions minimum which turns it into a fat slow pig. I really don't get it what people see in it. Firefox, Opera, Brave, all these are WAY better than Chrome. Yet somehow Chrome has massive majority usage share. Of course something stinks of rot...

    There is a joke where I live about charity and its relation to PR. It's not exactly funny after translation, but you'll get the point (I'll use a western name to simplify things): Reporter: Who donated this money to the charity? The representative: Mr. Jones wishes to remain anonymous.

    The Catholic Church has a metric crapton of money. Billions. How about helping out the churches that were burned here in the US? They can actually use the help.

    Why would these people be breaking these products open? I'm on the spectrum and I couldn't give a flying ###### about these messages, maybe you shouldn't assume such a message causes pain or hurt or whatever to everyone with a specific medical condition based on absolutely no evidence.

    Another article I read said that it would have no ads at all, like Netflix. Better not have any god damn ads if I'm paying $7 a month.

    Honestly, I do not think Intel were ever in the game. It's probably why Apple settled with Qualcomm.

    Considering the size of games, and the price of this, they really should have not just removed the optical drive, but replaced it with an empty SATA HDD/SSD bay. I'm sure they have the space inside, and it's just a slot and a connector, but it would make it so much easier to expand its capacity is a clean way, enticing users to buy more games.

    I don't think I would feel confident if they put some graphic designers in charge of the security of their online services. If you're only talking about money, both are important for their office softwares and backend, I really don't think refreshing the icons has been done at the expense of their security.

    What a hypocrite. At Foxconn, people are killing themselves because they are gravely exploited under the pressure of Apple to enrich Tim Cook and his people them beyond imagination but they get no help at all, no one cares for those people. Same for the kids who are digging lithium carbonate out of the caves, so Apple can sell their phones. But if a building takes fire, oh god, let's help them rebuild this structure, it's so human to help France now who are in desperate need of financial support for a church, whose people have killed many, many people during the crusades a 1000 years ago. How pathetic!

    This is exactly what Google does... It was the same type of crap that Microsoft was fighting with IE9+ and Edge. Slowing down Edge, manipulating developers to move away from standards, Google services 'requiring' Chrome to use all the features, even though they work just fine with FF or Edge if they pretend to be Chrome, and on and on and on. I assume the issues with Firefox and soon Apple/Safari will now escalate further, as Google won't be directly targeting Edge-Chromium for a while. However, make no mistake in thinking that everything will be 'good between Google and Microsoft, as Google will move as many new and existing features as they can from Chromium into Chrome development, making these proprietary. (Historical example - Android - Google moved and is moving as many important technologies and features into Google Services and Apps and away from the Android OSS project.) Google doesn't care about Chrome, they care about the data Chrome collects. When people started going to http://www.ebay.com instead searching for 'XYZ product' - Chrome was the answer to finding out exactly what the user was doing on Ebay. The same concept applies to non-commercial sites, like going directly to a bank or social site, Chrome was designed to track a user's activities inside these sites. The fact that users have been so gullible and blind to what Google has been doing is a sad testament to the clueless state of society. At one time people understood that if something is free, it is too good to be true. Google doesn't dump millions into Chrome without a return.

    Most to some degree. It's becoming how quickly they can react (if at all) when it happens or does someone have to tell them first (embarrassing). I know it's not the easiest thing to do, but I do wonder why accounts with that kind of access do not have stricter auditing and geo-ip controls in place. If that user works in Seattle for example, and that's where they always login, any logins elsewhere should immediately be dropped and the appropriate people notified.

    I know it's only been a couple weeks, but I am already loving the new update cadence from the Edge team. Somewhere a legacy IE dev is shedding a tear.

    Gosh, you are so creative. Did you come up with that all by your lonesome self or did you borrow it from one of the 1,000's of others that have used previously? I borrowed it from one of the 1,000's of others that have used previously.

    It honestly wouldn't surprise me if they did, but as of right now this is just speculation... Correlation=/= causation. Without a smoking gun, Mozilla or anyone else isn't going to win any kind of anti-trust case or anything...

    Hello, It is likely that it is quite illegal for your employer to garnish your wages, especially if a computer was accidentally damaged during a routine move. Contact Scotland's Fair Work Convention and they should be able to advise you further. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

    No, what I'm saying is it's his own fault for attempting to domesticate an animal that has not been bred to be around humans, and won't react in any kind of predicable way that 1000's of years of domestic breeding would give you. You might as well stick your head into a gator's mouth and expect it not to chomp.

    Simple, don't remove them if they don't pose a big threat. People should learn to cohabitate with nature again, especially with insects, which are vital to many ecosystems. If an appeal to ecological sense doesn't appeal to you, wasps are very efficient mosquito killing machines
