I just meant it felt like they were pushing really hard to reach that "Top 10 Reasons..." clickbait-level...
Windows 10 update destroyed their data
I haven't seen a Windows upgrade (note: UPGRADE) destroy data in a meaningful way in.....I don't even know how long.
and damaged their computers
That's a neat trick, unless they mean their IDEA of their computer rather than the physical hardware. Windows is shitty, not malicious.
data loss or damage to software or hardware within 30 days of installation
Wait. So, are they claiming it was the forced upgrade that caused it, or.....?
her hard drive failed after Windows 10 installed
Sorry, unrelated. Though, if she could show otherwise, I would actually be shocked beyond belief.
she had to buy a new computer.
Yes, in the same way that I would have to buy a new car if my starter gave out.
I'm torn between hoping she succeeds (as I consider Microsoft a bad actor in the whole upgrade situation) and hoping she gets laughed out of court so hard she ends up with skid-marks that spell out "LOL".
I wanted to keep going so much. I wanted to always feel....fine! I was prescribed soooo many more pills than I actually used. Within 72 hours, I'd weaned myself off the pills because I wanted to feel like that all the time. And this was just hydrocodone; not even Oxy!
I still remember those two days, pretty clearly. Still wish I could safely live like that.
For some reason, I was thinking of ClearQAM when I read/wrote ATSC.
The biggest caveat is distance and indeed many such lab tests have measured the distance of their THz transmissions in centimetres, which is somewhat limiting. A few teams are now starting to talk in terms of metres, but right now anything up to 10 metres can be a real stretch to achieve
As usual, distance is a huge consideration in such announcements. Not that I'm not interested; heck, 10m (~33ft) would be sufficient for most of the cases where I would personally care about high-speed wireless...if/when they can sustain such throughput at that distance.
one could argue that he Holocaust was essentially moral since it gave rise to the U.N. and governments reluctant to engage in global wars.
I don't believe that was a very well thought out comparison, though it's certainly inflammatory. Drinkypoo (imo) wasn't arguing that the ends justify the means; he was arguing that one's intentions are a significant part of the equation.
I sincerely doubt any of the aggressors involved in the Holocaust had any real expectation that it would somehow ultimately save more lives. Also, I happen to think that taking a life is only morally justifiable in the presence of a direct threat to your own life or the life of another (from the life you are taking).
Authorities ruled out that it was an aircraft as no craft had been authorized to fly in the area.
If no aircraft had been authorized to fly in the area, then it obviously couldn't have been an aircraft!
Of course, it's yet one more thing for Microsoft to ram down Windows users throats.
Also, what if some applications stop mentioning certain prerequisites, due to the operating system silently accommodating them? You know, the ones enabling additional....*a-HEM*...telemetry?
Third-party code. 'Nuff said.
Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.
