    Trump creates problems so he can "fix" them and take the credit. Worst 'leader' ever.

    Good to see others recognizing the fact that Google is the new old Microsoft.

    No, the iPhone is for people with more money than sense. But not for long, because you know what they say about fools and money.

    Skipping Release Preview ring was stupid. I was surprised actually at how quick this got released, considering how long it took them to push the April 2018 Update out to production.

    All this communication complaint stems from the entitlement these days. 30 seconds late on announcements and there is a public outcry. Occasional silence makes an article. Don’t get me started on releases. Release updates too often? Whining. Too soon? Whining. A little later because they want to fix the too soon? Whining. Allowing upgrades to install that could cause problems? Whining. Blocking upgrade installs that could cause problems? Whining. Not verbose enough errors? Whining. Never mind that Windows is one of the most verbose. Bugs, whining. Now this one is valid; if only we could find the unicorn known as bug-free software releases....

    I have added the sad reaction so we can appropriately feel with our fellow Neowinians. I hope you all join in being sad with me when the time calls for it.

    If this isn't the definition of first world problems. If they didn't default to women, I'm sure they would have a study that said female voices are being oppressed and shut out. We have truly reached a point where people complain about everything.

    That was only the marketing hype from Apple when they moved to a Unix foundation. Do not blindly trust salespeople. First, Unix is a concept, a philosophy about how an OS should work, and a set of specifications for code portability, not a specific implementation or quality insurance. It is perfectly possible to write a very unsecure but conforming implementation of Unix, as it is possible to write a Un*x flavor that isn't compliant with the specifications (and there are several levels of specs, like POSIX, System V, and SUS). The specifications part gets even more messy when you realize that most Unix development is moving to Linux, which is Unix-like, but not Unix certified, and many new Un*x code isn't easily portable to other Unix systems anymore. This was the reason Windows moved from its subsystem for Unix (aka Interix, SFU, SUA), which was POSIX-compliant, to its new subsystem for Linux (WSL or LXSS), which instead aims at being binary compatible with the Linux kernel itself. Second point is we can challenge Unix design concepts. While it did have some great ideas, there is no reason to consider it to be the best OS design we can ever achieve. Remember it was created in the early 70s. Later, VMS in late 70s and then Windows NT in the early 90s both took inspiration from it, but decided to go with a more modern design, notably based on kernel objects instead of files. Modern Un*x is slowly moving away from the "everything is a file" to a more API-based system... basically the choice Microsoft made in the late 80s when abandoning Xenix, their leading Unix for PC, to work on Windows NT, the foundation for modern Windows. "The Power of UNIX" campaign for OSX from Apple in 2001 was ridiculous when you know history... Microsoft already had "The Power of UNIX" with XENIX, the most common Unix system for personal computers from the mid to late 80s, and already moved on a whole decade before Apple "discovered" it in 1999, almost 30 years after everybody else. I don't see Sun/Oracle bragging about Solaris, HP pushing HP-UX, IBM selling AIX, or movies crediting SGI for their IRIX-based graphics workstations... only Apple seems to believe UNIX is a modern buzzword in the 21st century.

    Most Apple fans are so deep into the ecosystem/golden jail they don't even care anymore if they buy overpriced, low quality and unreliable hardware (as demonstrated multiple times by Louis Rossmann, who was sued by Apple for repairing Apple products in his shop in NYC, for a few bucks, where Apple was charging $1000+ for the same repair) Here's a VERY enlightening story/report from CBC in Canada about Apple and how they screw their customers: https://www.cbc.ca/news/thenational/complete-control-apple-accused-of-overpricing-restricting-device-repairs-1.4859099 (Video at the end, 18 minutes of pure entertainment and facepalms)

    excuses excuses; Google really should be detecting feature set not user-agent-string there is no reason to be doing this other than maliciously trying to force people over to Chrome edit: of course they claim it's a "bug" .. like they totally didn't flip the switch on purpose just to see if anyone would notice ....

    If this happens we may already have seen peak Chrome. There are too many influential users that will switch browsers, then convince friends, family, and customers to follow suit. Not blocking all ads tends to get browsers hijacked. It seems like Google's motivation is to increase profits, in spite of whatever PR they put out to justify it. Let''s see how that works out for them over time.

    There is a small part of me that hopes this tanks. There are so many streaming services out there already which means that if you want access to absolutely everything you'd be shelling out a lot of money each month to get it. We don't need another service.

    Gab has done nothing wrong and is not responsible for user's posts any more than Twitter or Facebook is.

    If uBlock Origin goes, I go. Simple as that. Honestly this just feels like yet another tactic to get me to buy their ridiculous YouTube Red service.

    It's not really political. Plenty of Conservatives still have Facebook accounts. It's just the racist hatemongers don't anymore. Which is fine with me.

    Hmm... Not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand I think the whole flat earth theory deserves to be obscured, but on the other hand I'm not really comfortable with some corporation deciding what "theories" are and aren't allowed to be spread.

    Is it Mozilla's engine that's bad or is it because devs are building sites optimised for Blink? Their engine is bad, it's only slightly better than Safari and that says a lot. It's lacking basic HTML5 features that other browsers had for years and the JavaScript engine is the same story. Mozilla engine doesnt lack any HTML5 and JS features, Google implements features that are still not standardised and make you change your site every time the spec changes. We have built a lot of HTML5 sites and web applications and Chrome is the offender by not supporting standards because they have their own version of the truth instead of whats signed off until the actual sign off happens. And some web devs run around changing their site to Googles idiotic approach.

    Youtube announces more step towards banning Right-wing commentators and other people who don't agree with there ideology and misinformation. If that's the case why are the Young Turks still on YT, they said the Armenian genocide never happened they just up and left. Don't even get me started with the number of times main stream media has gonna a story wrong.

    Why is Gab the only social platform held responsible for actions of others? Did any of you know that the last shooter was on Twitter, Facebook and Gab and only Gab got their service terminated by the host, payment systems booted them and they've been banned from app stores for ages. Why one set of rules for some and other set for the others? Just because Gab provides a platform, that doesn't mean they endorse anything. And Gab isn't pretending with monumental virtue signaling how they filter content like others do. That's not their job and never should be. If you don't want to see something or something offends you, it's YOUR job to block that content yourself. What offends you doesn't offend me. So, why should my content be filtered and censored because you're such a weak snowflake you need to be shielded from frigging words? That's the problem with social networks. Twitter drove me insane, had all their filtering junk disabled and it kept on bitching how I may see "sensitive" content. I don't freaking care, I've turned everything off and you continue to bitch at me.
