Sometimes it works out 'faster' to simply reinstall the operating system rather than keep going round in circles. Been there, got the tshirt, etc, etc myself many many times. Just make sure you've...

Who knows, only MS maybe and they are reading a different script. But it was mooted (what seems like ages ago) that W8 would either fly with the eagles or drop like a stone. There wouldn't be a...

Agree 100% but in the real world 'piracy' will never be eliminated. Also folks do not consider it a crime to sell on their downloaded paid for MP3's to someone else whatever the EULA states.

I used the pre-release on my laptop for a couple of months and I really couldn't see the point of W8 and upgraded back to W7. Maybe we have just reached the point where we use whatever suits our...

I agree with all attempts to stop piracy even though I will confess to it in my early computing 'career'. Software theft be it in the form of programs, music downloads, etc simply stymies future...

They can but M$ are desperate to push folks towards the subscription cloud model and paid for downloaded apps. They've seen how much money the fruit company makes from apps and want a slice of the...

Couldn't agree more with that and as far as I'm concerned MS have spent the last couple of years (at least) sitting in a giant bubble with fruit company envy. Sure they (MS) have their so called...

Agree 101% but if all you ever wanted from your desktop/laptop (pre-tablet/smartphone era) was to check your emails, bit of web browsing and social media then a tablet is probably just fine. My wife...

Agree 100% and from memory I think it was Corel that dipped their toe in the water with Linux. Problem is that with the open source community there isn't any inclination to cough up the $$'s to make...

I read about this in an Adobe release note and was not a happy camper. In essence you are perpetually renting the software on a month by month basis. I upgraded from CS5.5 to 6 and (for me anyway) it...
