Windows 10 is Rubbish


Whether you press the ‘Upgrade now’ or ‘Start download, upgrade later’ button…..

winndows 10 upgrade

….the white dots go around in circles forever and Windows 10 does not download, it keeps displaying the message ‘starting download…’ but other than that nothing happens.

winndows 10 upgrade2

Here is another piece of bullshit from Microsoft…

window cannot update

So Microsoft will not let me update to Windows 10, it just does not work, Microsoft software is littered with bugs.

So, try again…

windows 10 starts downloading

windows 10 downloading 68percent

After completing 100% of the download….

windows10 preparing for installation

It took two days for the installation, not 45 minutes. On the first day it got stuck on ‘Downloading windows 10 preparing for installation. The next day I tried again. The Upgrade to Windows 10 tiles upgrades from the bottom right corner of the screen doesn’t work so I tried via the windows update. I began at 23:45 and the whole process lasted until 2pm and altogether it took 2h 15 minutes. almost 3 hours. It then installed all the tools and updates until 3pm. Windows 10 also hidden my main user account and it was quite fiddly trying to get it back again. It took approximately 2h 15 minutes for installation.

It takes half an hour to prepare for installation and another 1 hour to install the actual Windows 10.

heres the break down if you’re planning to install windows 10:

5 minutes to begin initiation of the dowload or connect to their server
45 minutes to begin the download
25 minutes to prepare for installation, nothing happens in between that time, you cant tell if the download is messed up or something broken…just sits there saying ‘preparing for installation..’ – rubbish!

60 minutes taken for the actual installation of the whole windows 10

Total time taken for installation = 135 minutes or 2h 25 minutes

However, I still dont understand why Microsoft has given away Windows 10 for free because usually they dont give away any of their software. There could be several reason:

  • crap buggy / beta OS
  • its a spy program
  • MS Edge is slow
  • windows 8 was rubbish and thats why we got a giveaway
  • Microsofts reason is they want to get the software on many devices as possible – what about my android phone ? I like the flavour of linux on it – basically Microsoft wants to dominate the worlds devices
  • so, whats after windows 10 ?

So, finally after getting to my desktop the main difference is everything is the same except for my taskbar and things are more faster. I had a clock on my desktop, it has disappeared. I miss my Windows 7 taskbar, the Windows 10 taskbar is ugly with no aero. Apart from Windows being a bit more faster, there is a just a load crap on my start menu which I dont need – tiles. The designers of Windows have bad taste for design, cartoonish icons, no 3D, no aero, everything just flat crap.

The next mission for me to use Windows 10 is to get me aero taskbar back, the one MS provided me is crap. Apart from the start menu with a load of crap uncessary tile, a newly installed windows 10 look like a bit like a improvised windows 3.1 Microsoft is currently testing Aero glass functionality in Windows 10. That’s why they have added the glass effect only to Start Menu and Taskbar in Windows 10 – HOW LONG Microsoft lazy bozo’s ? c’mon,….get a move on…!

Theres not really much to see windows 10…..I have my same desktop from Windows 7, everything same apart from the start menu and taskbar. Other than that the file explorer  windows are cleaner but all the icons have a  flat cartoon-ish design. I dunno why Microsoft went retro or they just have designer with no sense of design or eye-candie, which makes the overall theme of Windows 10 absolutely rubbish.

…and heres another rubbish I just found out….look what they did to the calculator….yuk, ugh, some retro crap.

w10 calc

After using Windows 10 for some time, in fact on my second day now, restarted the computer. I dunno what they’re talking about that restart is fast – no it isnt – it took five minutes to restart and another five for the system to get its background processes loaded – TEN minutes altogether

Vectone Mobile Review


Vectone Mobile is a rubbish network. Customer service is non-existent and they steal all your cash. One month ago I paid £5 on PAYG top-up and bought a £1 pack, after I finished my pack I didnt use my phone to make any outgoing calls but today when I checked my balance online they had stolen my £4.00 – never again with Vectone Mobile – Im not using a smartphone and customer service NEVER or RARELY answer the phone!

WhatsApp Is Not Free to make calls or messaging


whatsapp-logo-vector

What is the point of using WhatsApp to make free calls when you are required to top-up using your mobile phone network.

In reality and in a way making free calls isn’t really free. Although the App itself is free you still need to be connected to the internet, and connecting to the internet requires payment to your mobile phone network to get internet access. So you have to pay for it.

If you purchase a cash top-up as PAYG of which the minimum is £5 then data charges will quickly drain your the cash you put into the phone. Either way, if you purchase a subscription, pack or bundle through your network or carrier then you are still paying to talk or text for free. So, in reality WhatsApp is free to use if you pay the mobile phone network to download the App and use it. So you still have to pay for it.

The other way is to use WhatsApp over a wireless network or wifi but again in reality it is not free, you have to pay the wifi network company. You can go to a café but only if you want to treat yourself to a coffee which you will have to pay for the coffee say about £3.50 and then get your free wifi access to use whatsApp.

Free Wifi-hotspots – again, unless you are mostly on the go, do you really want to leave the comfort of your home to sit in a café, station, airport, stand outside or even go somewhere public with strangers around you and then you have to think about network security as well. Asking around for passwords are hassle as well.

So, in conclusion, whatsApp as an app is free but calling and messaging isn’t in a way.

David Cameron backs bans on Muslim face veils


Extremist far-right winger David Cameron is to introduce the ban on muslim women’s face veil which is a breach of womens human rights. In a free society people are free to express their needs, desires, wishes, speech as they want. So, what is stopping #Cameron from banning topless garments and mini skirts as they are a provocation in the same way Cameron thinks that people under the veil are perhaps burglars or jewelry shop raiders.

Cameron has targeted a soft-spot – women! he could have targeted men to not to wear the prayer cap but he knows that would spark the ultimate outrage that Cameron could loose not only his tie but not be wearing a suit to office. What this shows is that Cameron has actually informants from far-right wingers and is slowly moving towards being a extreme far-right winger.

Woman_wearing_niqa_2679987b

Boycott Cameron’s decision to overturn the ban on face veils because this is a breach of human rights. The breach denies the freedom of expression and the freedom to dress as women want. If Cameron is has become an extremist on how women dress he should be taught that not all women specially in UK carry bombs under their veil. If he still fails to understand then he is also neglecting far extreme forms of dressing in the fashion industry which should also be banned such transparent and provocative dresses. On the other hand he could encourage women of all different types to wear face veils. Otherwise what Cameron is doing going down the French route and following the fascist French president to ban the burka/veil in public.

This is not just a boycott on lifting the ban on the veil but a boycott to stop the denial of women’s human rights, freedom of expression and freedom to dress. If you think this is right then raise your voice now and speak out against the wrong decision.

EE is so shit


EE formerly known as T-mobile is so shit, although they offer for users to top-up £1.00 for 7 days, you can’t top-up another £1.00 if you have used-up all your credit or minutes before the 7 day period but I have my own trick to out-win them since they think they are so clever, I will just buy another SIM and put £1.00 on it, haha, fools !

Nominet Condemned for Preventing .uk Domain Ownership


Nominet the domain registrar has been condemned by Todays Controversy for issuing a new domain extention which many people cannot have.

dotuk

The .uk domain name is offered by many domain registrars but in contradiction to what they offer. Although the registrars give the option to own a .uk domain name, in actual fact you cannot have the .uk domain or you are prevented from taking-up this domain. In order for you to own .uk domain name nominet says you must already be a owner of a .co.uk domain name.

In addition a new registrant does not have the right to choose a new .uk domain without owning a .co.uk domain. The owners of existing domains with a .co.uk domain is given rights first and even if they don’t take the .uk domain it is reserved for them for five years. So, basically a .uk domain name is and is not available – confusing ? well, even though the .uk domain name is available when you do a search for your favourite domain which you previously couldn’t have because all the good names under .com, .co.uk, .net have run out and, then you find a really good domain name you can have now under the .uk extention domain registrars prevent people from buying the domain because nominet has this silly and stupid rule that says the owner of another domain has the first right to own the .uk domain. Ok, perhaps it is for a few days but it is reserved for five years for another domain owner who already has their domain domain name – how stupid!

This is a very bad domain policy by nominet and they need to get to grips with themselves to stop making stupid rules and allow anyone and everyone to own which ever domain they like under any extention as long as it is freely available. The .uk domain is freely available under many domain names but people are not allowed to have it.

 

Why do you support Ukip? Party supporters reveal their views


The rise of Ukip is one of the key trends in British politics, helping shape the agenda and unsettling the older political parties.

But who is actually supporting Ukip, and why? Where do they live, and what do they want?

Listen to some nervous Tory MPs and you’d conclude that Ukippers are all disaffected Conservatives in golf club ties, living in comfortable home counties retirement and holding David Cameron’s fate in their hands.

But listen to the Ukip PR machine and you’ll be told that Ukip supporters come from all backgrounds, ages and regions, threatening all the established parties equally.

The Telegraph is offering Ukip supporters themselves the chance to establish the truth, speaking for themselves as party of our new video graphic.

Over the months leading up to the European elections in May and the general election next year, we will add to our gallery with more contributions.

If you want to take part, email us on whyrukip@telegraph.co.uk and watch the video below detailing what we are looking for.

And keep watching the map as we reveal more of the people who make Ukip what it is today.

England’s men reach World Cup semis


England’s men qualified for the World Cup semi-finals with a dramatic 3-2 victory against Belgium in their must-win final Group A match.

Belgium, who knew a draw would see them progress at England’s expense, led after 14 minutes through Thomas Briels.

Nick Catlin and Ashley Jackson scored in each half to put England ahead.

31 May: England 1-1 Spain 2 June: England 2-1 India 5 June: England 2-0 Malaysia 7 June: England 0-5 Australia 9 June: England 3-2 Belgium Tanguy Cosyns’s 63rd-minute equaliser looked set to eliminate England, before Iain Lewers converted a late penalty flick to put them in the last four.

Victory ensured England finished as Group A runners-up with three wins from their five pool matches, with either the Netherlands or Argentina awaiting them in Friday’s semi-final.

After suffering a 5-0 thrashing by defending champions Australia on Saturday, Bobby Crutchley’s men showed resilience and determination as they put that defeat behind them.

The Belgians, who were backed by a large vocal support in The Hague, enjoyed plenty of possession and dominated territory throughout.

But England defended stoutly and caused problems on the break, eventually being rewarded when Lewers kept his cool to secure victory four minutes before full-time.

“We have done it the hard way as usual but we deserve to be in the last four,” said England’s opening goalscorer Catlin.

“We broke on the counter-attack and deserved the win. But it was our defence that won the game.”

Qatar claims are racist – Blatter


Fifa president Sepp Blatter claims allegations surrounding the Qatar 2022 World Cup bid are motivated by racism.

Qatar was chosen as host in December 2010 but corruption claims have prompted Fifa to begin an inquiry.

“There is a sort of storm against Fifa relating to the Qatar World Cup,” Blatter said. “Sadly there’s a great deal of discrimination and racism.”

Fifa will rule on the validity of the bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in September or October.

At that point, the president of football’s world governing body said, the “matter will be closed”.

Speaking to African football officials in Sao Paulo, Blatter confirmed that the latest allegations  would be discussed at the Fifa Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday.

He said Fifa needed to combat “anything that smacks of discrimination and racism”.

“It really makes me sad,” he added.

At its general assembly in Sao Paulo, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) condemned what it termed “the repeated, deliberately hateful, defamatory and degrading attacks by some media, notably British, on the image and the integrity of the Confederation of African Football, its president, its members, its member associations and the entire African continent.”

Caf added that it would urge the executive committee “to file a law suit, if necessary, so that the authors of this smearing and defamatory campaign against African football leaders are brought to book”.

Qatar overcame competition from Australia, Japan, South Korea and the United States to be named as 2022 hosts.

But the bidding process has been hit by a series of corruption claims.

American lawyer Michael Garcia is currently involved in an independent investigation into the bidding process and is due to deliver his report to Fifa in mid-July.

Blatter, 78, told delegates from the Asian Football Conference that Garcia would also speak at Fifa’s congress to update delegates on his inquiry.

Garcia is investigating everyone connected with the bidding process for both the 2018 World Cup, to be staged in Russia, and the 2022 event.

Qatar’s World Cup organising committee continues to reject claims of wrongdoing and says it is confident the vote was won fairly.

E3 2014: Xbox One’s 2015 slate includes Crackdown, Limbo and Tomb Raider follow-ups


Xbox One 2015 releases include Crackdown and Tomb Raider follow-ups Yes everyone, there’s a new Crackdown coming

Everything Microsoft showed during the first half of its E3 2014 press conference will be out in time for the 2014 holiday season, but Microsoft didn’t stop there.

The company also discussed dozens of new Xbox One games scheduled for release in 2015, including some surprising new sequels and a massive slate of indie games.

At the top of the list is a new title called Inside, the first game from Playdead Studios since the beloved black-and-white platformer Limbo.

Rise of the Tomb Raider, the follow-up to Crystal Dynamics’ 2013 Lara Croft origin story, was another pleasant surprise that should be out next year. It seems Lara will struggle with the trauma of what happened to her in the first game, though we’re betting she’ll recover somehow.

Happily Microsoft also revealed the return of some franchises that have long been dormant, including Crackdown 3 and a new game in the Phantom Dust series, which hasn’t seen an entry since the days of the original Xbox.

New gameplay footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Ubisoft’s The Division showed up as well, not to mention the announcement of a new action game from Platinum Games, a dragon-slaying adventure called Scalebound.

And not to be outdone by Sony, which last year at E3 showed many more indie games than Microsoft, this year the Xbox conference highlighted dozens with a quick trailer.

These included Aztez, Knight Squad, Plague Inc Evolved, White Night, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, Cuphead, Hyper Light Drifter, Lifeless Planet, Slash Dash, Fru, Lover in a Dangerous Spacetime, Mighty No. 9, Grave, Threes, FenixRage, Woolfe, #IDARE, Hellraid, and Below.
