    RH00D got a reaction from imreloadin in Vessel acquired and shut down by Verizon   
    Lmao at the people acting like Vessel was bought against their will. Verizon didn't force Vessel owners into anything. Vessel chose to sell to Verizon because they obviously felt it was the most viable option for them.

    Another thing, I can defend it. It says "This pc is scedualed to update at this time" so that means, the pc will update, so just xing out wont change it, that makes sence.

    I don't know why so many people have issues going to windows 10. The security is much higher on windows 10 as well as you are getting future updates and fixes.  As @spwath said, the UI makes perfect sense.  It clearly states your PC will upgrade at that date.  Why should closing the prompt change that?  If you don't like the data windows 10 sends to microsoft turn it off, it's no different than any other windows OS.  If you don't like the fact that Microsoft is urging it's customers to upgrade to a better platform so they can focus on one development environment, then go to linux or OS X.  Simple as that.  If you don't like a product or the company take your business somewhere else.

    That analogy is flawed. Its more like "We are going to access your account on xx day at xx time, if you don't want us to do it then please respond and tell us not to otherwise we will do it as scheduled".

    RH00D reacted to GoodBytes in MS just announced removal of framerate caps in UWP games   
    So to explain many people concerns here:
    Universal Apps Platform is important. It adds a lot of security to the user, meaning all these software that has security issues every week with exploit found due to poor coding, should be reduced. It it is sandboxed, installs clean, and uninstalls clean. Common complaints for many years by Windows users.
      And no, it is not only through the Store only. With Redstone 1 (Anniversary update), you can side load apps like you can download and install apps from the web right now, by-passing the store.
      In addition, it allows the whole point of Windows 10, which is apps that can run everywhere and gives you the same/similar experience on all of them. People complained that Microsoft didn't have an actual ecosystem. Now it does. Soon, you will be able to send/receive text messages from your PC (at least for Android, and Windows 10 Mobile users), and soon you will be able to continue a software session between systems.
      Universal Apps Platform is in development, it won't have everything that the mass Win32 platform (which has been in the works since 1993 -- when it was officially released with Windows NT). It has a lot of catching up to do, and yes, optimization and all that will come. Win32 will still be alive and well, as it is the only platform that can have full system access, as it isn't sandbox.
      UWP also bring full GPU rendered interfaces. So now you have more CPU performance for your software, and not render the interface, which most Win32 platform are using. CPUs sucks at drawing, that is why we buy GPUs.
      People complain that many program look blurry under high DPI, this has to do that Win32 was never designed for high-DPI... heck the whole concept of high DPI started back in 2000-2001, where Windows XP introduced it and support for it started to be built. Sadly, developers never bothers to support it as, at the time, no one had a display that could be used for high-DPI setting until recent couple of years, and because many apps uses their own, in house, or some other GUI framework for some custom interface (like Steam, and Adobe software suit, etc.), than it became, and still is harder for getting support, as they need massive modifications in most cases of the engine, or depending on some GUI framework which they are at the 'mercy' of for being updated for high-DPI support (assuming that it can even potentially support it, and not have to scrap everything and restart). UWP is designed for not only high-DPI, but per monitor high-DPI, and dynamic DPI switching (no need to restart the computer (well sign-out and sign back in) to see the app correctly).

    In other words (to be more clear on what I am trying to say), Win32 was not designed for modern high-resolution displays, and everything built around it, doesn't support it. So, when you do have a high-DPI display, many programs looks broken/blurry, and devs have difficult time updating their software due to the GUI framework that they are using doesn't support high-DPI, so it is a lot of work, and some can't do anything as they need to framework to be updated as it isn't an in house one. UWP app fully support high-DPI displays.
      Universal Apps Platform is MASSIVELY better than the junk of Windows 8 (Modern UI Apps). Heck, Office Mobile NEVER came, and Windows RT systems had to have this disjoint desktop/tablet UI world JUST for Office, as they could just not bring Office Mobile on it. And this is Microsoft! They designed Modern UI App, they should be more than experts on it. But, no issue on Android and iOS. It was very limited, and had a lot of stupidity in design. Universal Apps Platform is much more powerful, cleaner, easier to work with, and more polished, allowing complex software design and what it can offer to the user. But again, has a lot of work that remains to be done. That will come in time.  
    Should Microsoft waited for these abilities to be out before encouraging and releasing big PC games on the platform? Yea, I think so. Should Microsoft have done its research on PC gaming, its community, and all that before jumping in to have things in a better shape when they release PC games on the platform? For sure. I am not denying any of this.
     
    Hopefully, Redstone 1 will also include the ability for mods, or even better a Steamworks system (but my vote is on Redstone 2 for Steamworks like system, as that is not easy to do, and so far its not there, and AniversaryUpdate (Redstone 1) is schedule for release in June/July.. so it is unlikely, but it is works, so, most likely... Redstone 2)
     
    But, thinking positively, people were in doubt that Microsoft would release anything to fix the complaints, as Microsoft has had a bad reputation with PC gamers, beside the DirectX team. It is nice to see that it looks like, so far, Microsoft is indeed serious this time, and not some PR talking on how "serious they are", especially if they bring modding. So we will wait and see, but I think everyone should agree, that it is a finally a good first step.

    RH00D reacted to GoodBytes in Searching w/ Cortana Forces You to Use Edge + Bing   
    terrytek loves complaining and act like it is the end of the world, when he has Cortana completely disabled, just giving him a reason to freak out and spew warrantless hate toward Microsoft, and follows the bias news post from Kherm.
     
    Anyway. By default it was going to Bing. But people used ways to make it change the requested URL to Google. As Microsoft explained, they don't have control of what Google or other search engine outputs. Bing has a lot of pop-ups information boxes at the top of search results which Google doesn't. So Cortana expects you to see the information on the Bing page, but you don't get it, so you think Cortana is stupid or not as helpful.
     
    So now it uses Edge, and it will go to Bing.
     
     
    Oh and Microsoft NEVER said "Hacks"
    Stop using bias sites that says crap, and look at the original source:

    RH00D reacted to LAwLz in Bank hacked because of 10$ router without firewall   
    So this sounded really weird to me for a few reasons... Even without a firewall there should be other lines of defense in place. Do 10 dollar routers even exist, and if they do surely the entire infrastructure can't be made up of them (would probably go down several times a day because of the load)?
     
    As it turns out, the headline is very clickbaity. The Forbes article says the hackers are suspected to have installed malware on the bank's officials' computers. It was not 10 dollar routers (report seem to have gotten switches and routers mixed up). The attack might have happened even with managed routers. The article itself states that better routers should have helped track how the attack was done (by having proper logs of all events on the network), but that by itself would not have stopped the attack from actually happening (because the bank didn't have anyone employed to monitor the network). The lack of VLAN seems like a huge security issue though.
     
     
    TL;DR: It wasn't because of a 10 dollar router without a firewall the attack happened. A better router (or switch) would not have stopped the attack either. The bank messed up in other ways as well.
     
     
    It's pretty funny that the hackers got found out because of a spelling mistake. Not because someone discovered that large sums of money were getting transferred.

    This was a bug, check TetraSky's post. I was able to solve it on my test machine. If you still believe it's a conspiracy then this picture might apply to you:
     
    Also, since Windows 7 has had like 400+ updates since release (not accounting cumulative and service packs) it requires a lot of dependency solving before it installs any update. If it doesn't do that, stuff will stop working. Windows 10 doesn't have this problem since every build is effectively a new OS.

    There are currently 218 exams available through Microsoft. There are many different exams that you can take to get the MCP certification. You only have to complete one to be a MCP. (The 218 number doesn't include exams no longer offered due to product being outdated or no longer supported). They cover every relevant product category and range from easy to incredibly difficult. He probably did one of the easy ones. That's not to discredit him, at 5 years old that is impressive and I think he has an incredibly bright future ahead of him. But I don't think he's performing miracles of genius either.

    RH00D reacted to GoodBytes in Microsoft: We don't care about Windows Phone's market share and here's why   
    Here is a better picture of what I mean:
    Notice how I didn't really bother much in getter really the appropriate size, but look how the program is unusable already.
    Sure your phone can be 1080x1920, but you have to remember that the DPI size will be much larger, else text would be WAY WAY WAY too small. The point of high DPI, is that elements stays relatively the same size than normal 100% DPI, but you have more pixels for the text/icons/graphics/pictures being displayed allowing you to enjoy a richer experience, and easier to read text.
