Comment it was ok until the last update (Score 1) 88

I have the Anniversary running on 3 computers since the first week of general availability. After the last update, one of the computer's task bar would be unclickable if I left the computer running more than 3 hours. Haven't had time to track down the problem but I'm going to guess it's because of GeForce Experience. GE has been so problematic for me. If I started after running a game it would fail to start.

And uber doesn't have the overhead of buying cars/radios/meters or having depots..... so again, how are they managing to lose that much money?

Truckload of cocaine and on-site hookers for employees. It's the new perks for working in Silicon Valley. You have to top the on-site masseuse and chef in order to recruit the best people.

Comment OK for me so far (Score 2) 94

I've updated 3 machines of varying capability to the new version, seems OK. No show stopping bug.

But my friend's older laptop (upgraded from Win7) slowed down so much we had to do a full reset which fixed the problem. We couldn't track down the problem besides maybe an in place upgrade from Win7 caused the issued. BTW, Windows 10 reset works pretty well. Process is similar to macOS full reset just takes about 90 minutes versus 50 minutes.

WiFi has been wonky for me since Windows 8. Windows 10 upgrade actually reduced the number of WiFi failures for me. Still a lot more problematic than Windows 7 though. Got to the point where I just ran a wire to my main desktop because the connection would be lost once every few days and requires a reboot to get it back.

Submission + - Microsoft Wants To Power Self-Driving Cars With Software, Not Build One (theverge.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft's Peggy Johnson said at the Converge conference in Hong Kong this week that the company is not interested in manufacturing its own self-driving cars, but instead is interested in building software for cars. "We won't be building our own autonomous vehicle but we would like to enable autonomous vehicles and assisted driving as well," said Johnson, head of business development at Microsoft. "We in different ways enabled a variety of different partners and you'll see us continuing to do that." Microsoft is open to partners requesting an operating system for cars. For example, the company has partnered with Harman to integrate Microsoft Office 365 into its infotainment systems, bringing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to cars for the first time. "You're sitting in the car for many, many minutes a day. Can that be part of your new office, can it be your new desk, a place where you actually get work done?" asked Johnson. "We believe it can."
