Comment: Re:I DON'T want windows 10 (Score 1) 96 96

I installed the Insider Preview from scratch (wiped hard disk) on a spare laptop. It reproducibly kills the touchpad and the keyboard after a few minutes. The system keeps running and I can still send it to stand-by and wake it up with the power button, but without keyboard and touchpad input, it's useless. Couldn't even shut down the system without external input devices. That's the kind of quality control I expect from a Chinese eBay seller, but Microsoft?

Driver issue is not Microsoft's fault.

Comment: Radio broadcast texts? (Score 1) 89 89

I don't know anyone who even has one of these emergency radios. Being HOH myself, I'd never get one, rarely ever even try to listen to standard FM/AM radio broadcasts, and would never try to listen to an emergency broadcast. Be prepared for weather. Know what is expected before the normal comm channels go down. If something is unexpected, most people aren't going to find out via emergency radios, but by word of mouth.
