  1. The proper way would be to not have them preinstalled and instead have people install what they need. Impressive how this needs clarification in this day and age. Your examples: Calculator is okay, I don't use Mail because Outlook, same thing with Calendar. Music Player - what do I do with that? Play mp3s from my HDD? The three people still doing surely do not justify having that thing preinstalled for everyone. Photo app is not just useless compared to IrfanView, but additionally gets in the way when I start Photoshop from the start menu by typing. I don't know the video player, I use VLC, and that is really rare itself. So in conclusion, we can free up 50 something MB by removing rarely used stuff. More examples of useless preinstalled stuff would be OneDrive for instance, single-handedly adding 140 MB that I'd love to trade in for actual back up features ... But why argue, MS does have an impressive track record of bad designs and design decisions in Windows. OP doesn't really make sense making another thread about it ...
  2. This is generally kind of smart. Not just with phones, but with cars or other tech items too.
  3. Skype got rid of me years ago due to malicious ads. FB Messenger is the best cross-platform system right now imo
  4. There literally is a competitive mode for TF2 where you can only use the pan. Not joking.
  5. The level of detail provided by me and my sources obviously overburdens you. I don't see the point of the meaningless accusations you throw around here, without any sources to absolutely noone's surprise.
  6. This is utter nonsense. Go read what I wrote before and all your questions will be answered.
  7. Ask Volkswagen (and their brands, Audi and Porsche). They have been cheating, the others have not.
  8. You say "on over 11,000" cars like that is a lot. It is not. BMW alone makes over 2,000,000 cars every year. Stop scandalising please. If you want more details: The engine in question (N57) has multiple variants, which require different firmwares. The N57D30S1 variant, used on 7 series and 5 series cars and not in production any more, does not feature an AdBlue system, which caused it to emit higher than normal amounts of NOx, since the applied firmware assumed that there was an AdBlue system present. And could you elaborate on what you mean with "should have been found on the next service"? The time that this problem has existed for is way shorter than the normal time between services.
  9. This is nonsense. What actually happened: In the wake of the VW scandal, BMW updated some of its car's firmware to even more reduce emissions, which were never over the limit to begin with (trust me, since the VW thing, numerous instances have closely inspected BMW engines and never found ANYTHING). Unfortunately, some workshop employees installed the wrong firmware on 11 700 vehicles (so, not a lot), leading them to behave in a way that could result in increased emissions. This was an accident! Very important: This was found by BMW themselves and then immediately communicated to the authorities. Of course, this raid is bad press now, and with the OP for some reason hating on diesel engines, a topic needed to be created in the LTT forum Source (in German, deal with it): http://www.bimmertoday.de/2018/03/20/razzia-bei-bmw-diesel-software-im-fokus-der-staatsanwaltschaft/
  10. How do you know they bought one the year before? ... I have never in my life bought a new phone yet. Always used. And guess who I bought the used phones from. Right, people who had bought a new one. If there hadn't been a used one, I would have had to buy a new one. See the balance?
