Comment Re:Anger. (Score 1) 764

Microsoft are going to make a tablet? About fucking time. I want to take notes on it with a stylus, not wave my fingers over the screen going 'oooo, I can make pictures big'. I want to be able stuff a USB stick in the side of it and put directories of data on it.

You have been able to a get a stylus-oriented Windows tablet computer with USB ports for ten years.

Bring on the rivals indeed.

Comment I'm glad they can't make anti-virus for iphone. (Score 2, Informative) 137

If it's like desktop anti-virus, it will have its own vulnerabilities, take up more resources than I'd like, cause buggy behaviour or incompatibilities with other apps, and feed me false positives too often.

I don't need that on my phone. Since the only real malware we've seen for the iphone involves jailbreaking and then not properly managing your phone, I can do without.
