  2. A bit higher than I wanted to spend but cheers
  3. Cheers Nik, I picked up a Sony, the picture looked decent enough to me
  4. The short answer is... not a lot of note. There are improvements to "Acrylic Material" (Micorosoft's new name for semi-transparency in the Windows UI), which make things slightly easier to live with, plus updates for Task Manager and Mixed Reality. However, the biggest changes this week relate to Delivery Optimisation. Microsoft are really going to town on this feature (to recap, this is where your PC can download updates from other Windows PCs on your LAN, or on the 'net if you allow, and equally act as a streaming host to other PCs, a-la P2P networks) and in this build have added a whole skew of controlls allowing you to choose how much bandwith should be available to Delivery Optimisation; to view your download and upload statistics, plus many other tweaks and settings for these features. There's also now a Windows Store item for installing Ubuntu on your Windows PC. I shit you not; MS are really into this Linux on Windows thing now, and reckon you should use their store *nix builds (other distributions are coming soon apparently) rather than trying to do the install yourself. It's actually quite a clever idea, as it keeps the uber-geeks happy that they can stare at a badly scaled text interface, while keeping the sysadmins happy that they're still supporting Windows as the underlying OS.

  5. A week after Insider Preview build 16237, Microsoft yesterday released build 16241. Read on to see what's new this week: The short answer is... not a lot of note. There are improvements to "Acrylic Material" (Micorosoft's new name for semi-transparency in the Windows UI), which make things slightly easier to live with, plus updates for Task Manager and Mixed Reality.

  6. Another day, another build. This time Microsoft have released into the wild Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16237. As ever, highlights are as follows: Amongst the usual skew of Edge updates (MS really do seem to be trying to teach Edge everything, including how to hold the pre-used utensils in the food preperation room (i.e how to be the kitchen sink)), there's one, very notable, very oft asked for, actually incredibly worth mentioning update in this build - No more logging out to change screen resolution!!!! Here's what MS says about it: "No more logging out to fix blurry desktop apps: Hey, do you hate having to log out and back in to Windows to fix blurry desktop apps after docking, undocking, or remoting? We do too! In this flight, you only have to relaunch these apps in order to have them render crisply. If you have a high DPI display (a 4K display or other high dots-per-inch (DPI) display, such as Surface displays) and change the display scaling value in any way (this can happen when you dock/undock, remote from a device with a high DPI display, or otherwise change the display scaling setting) most desktop apps become blurry. This is due to 1) the apps don’t respond to a DPI change notification, because they haven’t been updated and 2) Windows keeps the display scaling/DPI data that it reports to apps constant until you log out and back in. In this flight we’ve changed the way that Windows provides DPI-related information to these applications such that each time one of these applications starts, they’ll get updated data from Windows. This means that for these applications, you simply re-launch them in order for them to render correctly if they’re blurry. While this isn’t what we all want: having these applications render crisply all the time, we feel that it’s a lot less painful to relaunch apps instead of having to close out of all apps and going through a log-out/log-in cycles." They've also buggered about with the notification and action bar some more; recently email notifications (for example) have gone from small and unobtrusive, to taking up half the bloody screen* . Other changes include more work on the re-introduction of semi-transparency in Windows (um, wasn't this in Win7? - why, yes it was), and a bunch more gaming mode and touch keyboard enhancements.

  7. Hot on the heals of build 16226 (well, ok, not exactly hot, more a gentle jog); Microsoft have taken the wrapps of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16232. Here's what's new and of note in this build: Believe it or not (hey, this is Microsoft), this build is all about security. More accurately it's about improvements and new features in Windows Defender, Windows Defender Application Guard, and probably most importantly, Windows Exploit Protection. To quote Microsoft: "We’ve heard your feedback regarding the upcoming EMET EOL, so we’re excited to announce that starting with this build you can now audit, configure, and manage Windows system and application exploit mitigation settings right from the Windows Defender Security Center! You don’t need to be using Windows Defender Antivirus to take advantage of these settings. After upgrading to this build, you can find these settings by opening the Windows Defender Security Center and going to the App & browser control page: Either right-click the icon in the notification area on the taskbar and click Open, or search via the Start menu for Windows Defender Security Center From Windows Defender Security Center, click on App & browser control and then scroll to the bottom of the resulting screen to find Exploit Protection More detailed documentation will follow on Microsoft Docs, and remember that Exploit Protection is a work-in-progress and might not be fully functional just yet!"

  8. Yesterday Microsoft released Insider Preview build 16226 to insiders in the Fast Track. Here's the highlights of this build: The biggest notable change in this build is the inclusion (finally) of OneDrive Files-On-Demand. This is essentially a reversion of OneDrive functionality to that which was available in Windows 8 and 8.1 - i.e. a file icon existed within your OneDrive heirachy *even if* you hadn't previously downloaded that file to your PC. Microsoft scrapped the functionality in Windows 10, citiing user confusion about which files / folders were and weren't local to a PC; but equally created a situation where whole folder structures appeared to be "missing" on a PC due to not being previously downloaded. There's also a new GPU tab in Task Manager, allowing you to check what your graphics card is doing, work wise. It's maybe a bit of a geeky thing, but it's fun to have never-the-less.

  9. Forget buying the G6; buy the H870DS instead! (the H870DS is the China / Hong Kong market dual-SIM, 64GB storage, QuadDAC version of the phone, and can be had online for about £350 right now!) ... I'm sure it won't be long before someone works out how to retrofit the wireless charging coils in this version of the phone)
  10. Earlier
  11. Depends on size, budget and priorities
  12. This is what I would buy (if the wife would let me). Price has dropped since last year and it's a stunning picture https://www.richersounds.com/product/tv---all/panasonic/tx65dx902b/pana-tx65dx902b
  13. Does anyone have any recommendations? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. And that's life at Spurs. We'd better not sell any more players. I really don't understand how Levy keeps our wage cap so low. I think it's so far from the 'going rate' these days that we'll end up losing more players at some point.
  15. Tottenham transfer news! Kyle Walker sold to Man Citeh for £50m (including addons). Walker might even be good enough to get a game at Citeh - compared with Sagna and Zabaletta he should improve their back 4.
  16. Nah, an awful lot are absolutely made up with the money we've got for him. Many even actually disliked him. I appreciated him being the best goalscorer I've seen play for us in my lifetime. But he's also pretty bad at football. I'll be surprised if he doesn't score more than any Chelsea player this coming season, existing or yet to be signed. But at the same time, even if he gets leading score for the next 5 years, they'll still be united fans who dislike him. Because he's an absolute footballing enigma. Still young though, so he may end up as good as anyone.
  17. Excellent! The guy is so difficult to listen to though.
  18. Drop your new Samsung TV so that it is back in spec... Top notch build quality from Samsung when it can't even survive shipping...
  19. No idea, Emanello always had a thing for him. Yet I've never met a Chelsea fan who rated him. In fact, other than Toffees (who hyped him up) and now Mancs (who bought the hype) I can't recall anyone ever raving about him. Because: A) what United have paid is, once again, an obscene amount of money that is not good for football in general B) I'm just so very glad it wasn't us! Righto. And they did that because they're a charity? Money transferred from United to Juve to Mino Raiola's pocket is technically "paid by Juve" but come on...!
  20. No interest? Why the face saving late bid on Friday then? If it doesn't matter, why keep going on about how much he cost and how overpriced he is? Way too early to make knee jerk judgements IMO. Juve paid Pogba's agents fees.
  21. No, Lukaku really isn't rated by any of the fans I know - it's not about losing out and feeling hurt, we really are very pleased (relieved) that you bought him! "Big lump" is the best thing to say about Lukaku. Emile Hesky and Christian Benteke come to mind, and while I'll admit he's a better than both of them he's not £100m better. £100m for Lukaku is utter nonsense, but that's what you're paying for him. £100m - let that sink in. Maybe we'll all be wrong, and he'll be the next Drogba - time will tell. But one thing is for sure, at least he won't be as bad as Pogba! And Taggart... he baulked at paying £34m for Hazzard with £6m to the agent - peanuts compared to what you're now paying for Poor Pogba and Lucarthorse. Many PL clubs could buy an entire squad for the agent fees you're now lavishing on those two players! We refused because we're not mugs. Or desperate. Which is it with United, or is a bit of both?
  22. Of course those fans are. Their club missed out on him! I'm sure they'd be happy for their club to gamble and pay £70m for Morata or Belotti. The kind of agent fees that you paid for Hazard which SAF baulked at? [emoji6]
  23. I liked your video! All Chelsea fans I know are glad you signed Lukaku...thanks for saving us £100m as that's what United will be paying - and maybe more - once the obscene agent fees are taken into consideration (fees Chelsea refused to pay as we're not desperate/stupid...)

  25. Depends on what papers you read.
  26. That's OK if Emenalo isn't a yes man. Didn't he (and the board) want Lukaku whereas Conte wanted Morata?
  27. Yes, thank God - it's pretty much all down to Emanelo now, although hopefully Big Toni has a very large say too...
