    MS force feeding Edge

    I doubt that. IE and Edge together only have 8% of the browsers shares, at the end of June. It would be lower, if MS didn't bundle it with the OS. Source: https://www.w3counter.com/globalstats.php MS has been pulling the browser joined at the hip to the MS OS since they forced Netscape out of business. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netscape_Navigator I only kept IE because a) you could not uninstall it just hide it and b) up until Windows 7I think, you needed it to keep the OS patched.

    Yeah but tapes are the still best method for long term storage. They can last for up to 30 years unlike spinning drives or solid state ones: https://www.ironmountain.com/resources/general-articles/d/disk-vs-tape-which-ones-game-for-the-long-term

    Well I keep what I want and delete what I do not. If I tried to watch a small 720p movie, it would either be letterboxed or stretched when fullscreen which kills the quality of a movie. Anything less than 1080 is pixilated or not fullscreen.

    You realise it's possible to delete movies after you watch them? I find a good 720p rip in HEVC is almost indistinguishable from a HD or BR rip when you're sitting several metres from the screen, and can be under 1GB. Maybe if you're sitting up close to a giant 75" TV you may be able to spot the difference.
  9. *couldn't care less* . Think about what it means. I hate when the internet gets flooded with incorrect usage propagated by sheeple who just copy the wrong things other sheeple say. Don't be a sheeple! Another pedantic example is the disappearing usage of the word "who" recently. So often I see written eg. "the person that did the thing". When I was at school, "that" referred to objects and "who" referred to people. I also read recently a Swedish study which found an average decline of 7 IQ points per generation. Confirms my unscientific observations that the world is getting stupider. Now git orf ma lawn!

    MS force feeding Edge

    That was because they were preventing another browser to be used. They never stopped installing IE on any window's computer. Also, Edge is based on Chromium so its basically chrome as they use the same source. Heck, you can even use chrome extensions on Edge. It's 200% better than IE ever was. That said, IE is still on windows 10 but it will not show up in the start menu anywhere. You have to hit Start and then type IE to see it. All that said, I do not use windows or edge but I do have to deal with it at work.

    Not many court decisions regarding MS in the U.S. They spend HUGE $$$ on lobbyists and greasing legislators' palms in this country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_litigation

    MS force feeding Edge

    There are a few courts that have said otherwise. If they could, most people would still be using IE.
  14. Amazon (Bezos) could care less about what they're selling. Their ONLY concern is that people are BUYING.

    It's their operating system. They can do whatever they please with it... and have been for quite a few years.

    MS force feeding Edge

    When I restarted my computer today to install the latest MS update, it tried to force me to "Get Started" with Edge. I had to use Task Manager to end it. It also put the Edge shortcut icon back on my Desktop. It also won't allow me to uninstall Edge or Edge update apps. How far is MS allowed to go with this sort of trash?

    Slackel Linux Works Well Inside Its Openbox Might be of passing interest to quite a few folk here as it utilises Openbox. Oh and the ODD (do you get the play on words here) Slackware user.

  22. Those are not the least "funny" books amazon sells, Nazi children’s books branding Jews 'devil in human form' on sale on Amazon in various languages I am all for freedom in all forms however I personally think that amazon should not sell or promote books like this. Keep them in a museum or library.

    Hello, FujiFilm is talking about tape drives, not hard disk drives. Also, there's no mention of how fast reads or writes will be with the new tapes. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  24. And about The Shadow... It was, of course, waaaaaay before my time, but I remember it because when I was a wee lad in the early 60s, these radio dramas were replayed on a local AM radio station here in Tampa. My mom would have the old Sears Silvertone turned on and tuned in every afternoon about 2PM. She'd listen to the shows while cleaning the house, folding the laundry, etc. I was there in the livingroom in front of that ol' console stereo listening along intently. Ah... the memories! Our old Sears console looked very much like this one, but had the "blonde" wood finish. There was also a satellite speaker, so you could enjoy true stereo using the turntable... or if you could find an FM station back then that was transmitting in stereo (rare until about '65 or '66).
