    Microsoft-introduced ERRORS

    Over the last few months, Microsoft have forced updates on users which have resulted in some messages being displayed.

    I reer of course to the "restart required..." and "you need to update your account..." messages.

    Microsoft have tried to fob us off with actions which WE have to take, which don't work, when what they should be doing is putting out a delivery of an update to correct these ERRORS.

    I call them errors because that is what they are.

    I speak to you as someone who has spent over 30 years in the computer industry, mostly in a support role, sending out updates and managing change.

    If I had forced out deliveries which caused MY customers a load of grief, well, I'm sure I wouldn't have completed anywhere near 30 years in the industry!

    Now, my Microsoft account is working perfectly well, thank you, and I do not need to update it.

    Similarly, I have performed a large number of restarts, and still get the message telling me that a restart is required.

    Now it is high time that Microsoft stopped abusing its dominant position, and stopped treating its customers with contempt, and sorted out these errors.

    Well, a few days now and no replies.

    But then, you can't defend the indefensible, can you?

    If MS don't wish to comment, at least incorporate a "don't show this message again" option in the two examples I referred to above - and ensure that the system acts on it!

    Will Microsoft introduce a yearly fee?

    Microsoft statement
    once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost
    .

    There is no definition of "supported lifetime" but a reasonable interpretation is that it means the period during which the hardware has drivers that are Windows 10 compatible [once the device makers stop updating the driver for a given device, subsequent
    Windows updates might render it incompatible].

    I'm glad my body is already beyond salvage, so I won't be tempted to spend $199.00. *Tongue

    I really don't want anything around my wrist to keep reminding me how bad things are.
    With $200.00 I can buy 4 bottles of Jack Daniels and think I'm healthy.

    Mine too, you would probably spend that on fishing tackle or as you are in MN another ice pick. *Roflmao2 It won't be long now, before the lakes freeze over and I will have to go ice fishing, instead of from the boat. And yeah, I do spend way more than a $200 on fishing each year. But haven't you heard, fishing is very therapeutic, so I don't need no stinking health monitors!!! *Biggrin

    Fishing was mans first tranquilizer until you get a strike. Then all bets off on the tranquilizing.

    Hi there.

    I saw that APPLE is introducing an APP on its iPhones that actually predicts (accidents notwithstanding) the DAY you will DIE. !!! It asks questions like how many times to go up and down stairs, your exercise and diet regimes, some other health related questions etc etc and then it provides you with a digital countdown until your "predicted demise".

    I think I'll pass on those types of phone apps -- they could also become "Self fulfilling prophecies" too.

    Technology is great - but some things are still better left to "The great unknown" - although I have no problems with carrying out functions that delay "the inevitable end" where appropriate.

    You have to be patient before the stupid ad ends (about 5 secs -- more and more websites are doing this wretched trick -- it still won't make me look at the commercial - I just sit there with a glass of Scotch / beer in my hand until the commercial has gone !!!).

    To break up my fishing a few years ago I started doing some of my Big Mouth Bass fishing with light fly rods.
    Now that is joy. Their is a skill to learn because you got more fish that you have fishing rod and line.
    I don't know why they don't call fishing; fish hunting. That is the first part that one does. Learn what fish do under various condition and hunt them. Then you got to be sneaky and trick them to put something in their mouth so you can drag them out of the water. The plus side for this sport is you can participate while drinking a beer, eating and B/Sing. You don't even have to catch a fish to have a great day.
    What a great sport.
