    "Google engineers spat and cursed as they were forced by their leathery winged managers to perform the merge but their anger turned to shrieks of pain as they swore that the MS code burned their hands and eyes as it entered their code base. Upon completion they scurried back into the darkness still hissing their pain and disgust."

    Clearly you need to educate yourself on this subject... There are countless agencies and funding groups out there are focused on helping human-related problems. If you'd take 10 seconds on Google, you'll find longs lists of them. The problem is that no amount of money will actually solve these issues. If you dissolve this space program and distribute the money to the people instead, what does that solve? Everybody maybe gets a few pennies. Wow, such a huge impact... The progress that does get made is usually in the form of new technology developments. Guess what results from funding space programs? Do some research on NASA and the Soviet programs. Massive innovations came from them and has given huge benefits to the entire world. Fact is that one of the best investments that the world can make is funding the designers and engineers that are tasked with the impossible. If we can figure out how to travel and survive in places outside of this planet, it makes solving the problems on Earth so much easier. Surely that you can understand, right?

    If this takes off it will be the beginning of the end for game preservation and ownership. Sure, at first there won't be exclusive games on Stadia - just ones that are otherwise available for purchase outright - but if it becomes popular then publishers will start to make games exclusive to streaming platforms. Then they take the game down once usage rates drop below a certain number and then re-release it with tiny improvements 5 years later rinse repeat. The idea of being able to play the same game you bought a decade ago will become a distant dream. Publishers - especially big ones like Bethesda and EA - don't want you to just pay a single up front price and be able to play the games you purchase indefinitely because that doesn't satisfy the ever greedy and ravenous shareholders. They want you to pay for it over and over and over. And dangle it in front of your face in between each time its offered "Remember that game you really loved? Well it's returning in two years with improvements! 2 NPCs added that give you a cosmetic item!" Some games, once pulled, will never again be issued -- and you will only have recorded play throughs to watch instead of being able to ever play it again. This is why I hope game streaming fails hard and causes major money losses for all involved so that anyone attempting it is deterred for at least another decade. A stay of execution for content preservation and consumer rights. If this takes off, eventually all games excepting indies and maybe console games will effectively be rentals. And just like rentals of old in places like Blockbuster eventually older stuff is cleared to make room for new stuff. The publisher will have total and complete control over their games. Oh, and you can kiss modding goodbye too obviously for any game that goes exclusive to these platforms. Adding to the issue of preservation is the issue of game updates. If some groups complain such as the right-wing 'family values' groups there may be censorship by publishers. Exhibit A: GTA 'Hot Coffee' which was removed in an update. If you don't like the censorship you won't have any other options because the updated versions of games will be the ONLY versions if they are exclusive. So being able to use an older version of a game is just as important as being able to play the game itself. Speedrunners will typically use the initial 1.0 release of Super Mario Odyssey for example when doing Any% speedruns because there are glitches that let you skip past mandatory parts of the game that were fixed in later patches (and yes, there are unofficial ways to uninstall game updates for Switch games and modify the MinimumVersion field in the Section Header Block of a Switch application package (NCA))

    Well, this explains it all. At least do some research on grammar. What you "know" is simply wrong.

    Store apps have never let you choose folders, and it has to do with the security model, virtualization of the registry, and easy and complete uninstall guarantees that are promised by store apps. Xbox Game Pass games are still Store apps, in terms of how they're delivered. If you could choose a folder location it would break things as they're currently implemented. And you don't really need to. They're not meant to be accessed via File Explorer. funny that also other companies store works like this, but nobody complains PC is not phone and Windows is not Android or iOS. And PC Games are not stupid phone games like Soda Saga. MS fails basics with Windows 10, and they keep failing with it. They will throw ton of a features and yet fail with the basics like installation process...unbelievable. Rabble rabble rabble

    What about outlets that control the state, like Fox News? If you think it's only fox news that is pushing a narrative then you're delusional. https://twitter.com/DavidJHarr...us/1163265345710247936?s=20 Most of these news outlets are all owned by the same people.

    To be clear, Windows 10 in S Mode could always install Win32 apps through the Microsoft Store. What's changing here is Microsoft is allowing Win32 apps to be installed through Windows InTune in an Enterprise setting.

    People still do that? Nobody I know at least lol. Usually, the "prestige" factor for PC gamers is what they built themselves. Alienware users I've talked to usually respond more like, "Eh, looked cool and didn't feel like building another one." ...which is totally fair. My only point of contention with buying pre-built is to make sure you have enough room for expansion, if you're trying to make your purchase last at least. That's right because if I wanted to put a 4th video card in my case it would be an issue...….. Love it when people intentionally play dumb. What if you want to upgrade your card in the future? Have you seen the size of the RTX 2080 for example? What if you want to add additional drives for media? Do you have enough slots? Is changing out the hardware going to be a giant clusterfudge or relatively easy? Hardware fails sometimes and all of this stuff matters. All I'm saying is for people to "consider" it because I ran into these problems myself at some point. Humor me and look up Alienware Area 51 R2, then think about your response for a solid 5 minutes before you respond to me. I said they should consider it when they're buying pre-built, not that pre-built PCs don't have options, nor was I saying Alienware doesn't have options either. Not sure who hurt you, but take a week off for your health because you're being overly defensive here... Deflect and divert, remember you replied to me... and it seems as if you need a hug or a safe space

    Performance-wise, a RTX 2080 Super would be a worthy upgrade from a GTX 1080 but it doesn't exist (only 2060 and 2070 Supers). If you're running at 1440p with a high-refresh rate monitor (120+ Hz), or 4K and don't want to drop far below 60fps, the RTX 2080 is a good shout.

    There are so many features that should have been optional and uninstallable within Windows-10. Some examples--touch screens, synching, gaming. (Does modular programming come to mind?) Let a user decide if they want a "business" oriented OS or a "gaming" oriented OS. MS's "one size fits all" philosophy is a huge reason for the Windows-10 mess.

    They should bring back the Star rating system and do away with the stupid thumbs up and thumbs down. The best example of this is Luke Cage. I couldn't' rate it. It was neither a thumbs up or thumbs down ... but a 2 out of 5. Started off good and then went full slow.

    Who still holds onto a grudge for 3 years for a book they never intended buying in the first place? Wait.. you talking about me? I'm confused, I just found out this was even a thing lol. Some people can be very sensitive at perceived criticism of Apple..

    Just wanted to drop an update on this case. I tried pushing the old and current firmware using WinPE bootable flash drive method (as explained in the article above) but was not successful. This is not to say the method does not work, it works but there are built-in checks in place with boot loader and UEFI update module which actually stops old firmware to be pushed on better version firmware. You can manually change the version (make it newer version then what is already installed) in the INF file for the old firmware driver and install it. At next reboot Windows boot loader will start pushing the firmware update capsule to UEFI. But when UEFI updater will start the update process it will fails with Last Attempt Status 0xC0000058, which is related to version mismatch. Unless someone can open and change the version in update capsule files (the .bin or .cat files in the driver pack) it is not possible. (Ref: Windows UEFI firmware update platform ) Anyhow, I took it back to repair shop which actually did my battery replacement, thinking I will have another US$ 200+ bill. But the guy wanted to experiment and we opened it up again. Inspected and cleaned the connectors and ribbon cables and re-seated the display and it started to work fine. 🤷‍♂️

    Do you mean like Pierre L' Enfant that designed Washington DC? You're really going to try and compare contemporary city planning designs to intentionally having government spies work for an American company with the explicit purpose of stealing intellectual property?

    This is so much better than setting waze as default, or proper address link support. Love that the keyboard hovers over from other apps, and when you try to close it by hitting back waze wants to close as well... All issues reported multiple times over the years.

    Ok, I did the only thing I can think of and did a new fresh install off the new disc and checked the winver immediately it reads version 1903 (OS Build 18362.295) I found where to enable the insider program and it was enabled by default so I turned it off. So I will monitor with process explorer and see if it happens again. Any other suggestions?

    Missions to space or no missions to space: the situation on earth would remain the same. Also, these missions are about human exploration. It has always existed. But now it just goes beyond earth's boundaries. Imagine if Europeans were thinking like this in the era just before the American continent would be discovered...

    This is meant as a discussion board.. If your going to ask to do something that doesn't make a lot of sense, to get asked why. I get it he might not use the device like me, or others.. But the point is - once you set the thing for the ssid you want, and the psk... Unless your going to be doing something fancier with it.. Which the native firmware doesn't have any way to do.. There is not reason to go look at it every day.. Its like watching a BW channel on your color TV.. What does it mater if the TV can do color if your just going to use it for BW.. Taking away the ability of it to do color makes no sense..
