  1. It makes sense, we don't know the long term ramifications of COVID and whether it could change operation of some businesses permanently, i.e. adopting remote work full time. The way Windows 10 works as a live service means they constantly need to be optimising it so these kind of improvements are welcome imo.
  2. I was surprised to see them release the iPhone SE 2020 amidst this pandemic. They've clearly had the iPhone SE 2020 in the works for some time and had little to no choice to release it now. And I agree with @Bombastic only a month is impressive, I wonder though, whether it is delayed further. This pandemic can be unpredictable and volatile.
  3. Yeah I think this is the point. I know it's cliche, but the technology just isn't there yet. It's an inferior product compared to owning the actual hardware and there's no cost benefit at the moment. If the service became cheaper to use than I could see it appealing to some people. I don't like this move from Apple either. Like @BuckGup pointed out, I think it'll be temporary. Either legislation will force them to change their guidelines or they'll come round to it like in-home streaming. Sometimes they'll do this when they're waiting for their own implementation of a similar servi
  4. Clearly they should have just delayed it. Especially considering it's a remaster Blizzard and it's fan should want to do the original justice.
  5. Oh how the mighty have fallen, Blizzard just isn't the same company it once was.
  6. This CCPA is definitely a step in the right direction. It makes me wonder though, if the public has a direct say in whether or not their data is sold won't this mean massive financial loss for companies relying on harvesting people's data? It doesn't surprise me that Google is not implmenting this nation-wide, it's not in their best interests. My assumption though, is that opt-out will be in a menu of a website or application where your average user does not go to and only the educated tech users will take full advantage of the act.
  7. You could try running a Linux bootable if you're worried about the firmware on the card, some Linux distros are bad with graphics drivers so I would recommend Ubuntu. Considering the integrated graphics works I don't think the motherboard or BIOS is the problem but it's still good to rule things out.
  8. Yeah I'm not sure about this. There usually isn't much publicity around successful bug bounty hunters so we don't really know if they stiff these companies but it would seem somewhat likely. I do recall the teenager from UK who discovered the FaceTime vulnerability but I think it was an undisclosed amount of compensation in that story. But it's ultimately good for the industry to have all these companies running bug bounty programs.
  9. Yeah people don't seriously think about that but reusing password is actually the easiest way for threat actors to compromise your account. They just keep trying these password combinations across different sites until eventually they come across a reused password.
  10. Yeah this is why I'm using an iPhone currently. I'm pretty happy don't seem myself going back to Android anytime soon, personally. It would surprise me if they flat out removed FaceID but it is Apple we're talking about, they can be unpredictable at times, despite all the leaks and tired designs.
  11. Yeah the idea of a Windows core or Kernel being open source would be interesting. There probably would be some Windows distros that I prefer over Windows 10 right now. It probably doesn’t me sense for Microsoft from a business standpoint. According to your profile this is for software engineering? Does everyone running Ubuntu have technical prowess or do you have some ‘normies’ running Ubuntu?
  12. If that’s the case it would be well in excess of $4.3b.
  13. I see people say that, FOSS products have it’s benefits but I just don’t see anything taking over Windows in the enterprise market. MacOS certainly won’t because the products are too expensive and I think Linux is too scary for your average user. As long as Microsoft just keep maintaining Windows 10 and don’t make any drastic changes, I just don’t see anything changing.
  14. Seems like they are not going to make Linux distro and probably won't be an OS with security in mind. We are talking Facebook here. Anyway, anyone who uses it probably won't have their online security in the forefront of their mind. Also correct.
