Top Tip for iPhone fans, just spray that cracked screen old iPhone you have & voila, a new poncey Rose Gold phone that you'll probably put a cheap case off eBay on anyway. Small fortune saved, & still does the same thing the last five versions did.

Windows 10 Updates Without Your Consent Which Is Just So Wrong. Because there is nothing like having YOUR machine turn off and lose work when Microshaft think it's best... Here's how to turn this UX nightmare off:

Periodically when YOU decide, turn it on again and check for updates, rinse and repeat.
Windows 95 Was 20 years Old Recently & Microsoft Still Can't Get the Start Menu Right.
Windows 10 ushers in what effectively is a service pack to clear up the UX trainwreck of Windows 8/8.1, and it's still a mess. How can a menu still not get a basic consistency, familiarity and UX functionality right after 20 years? We've lost even more functionality and yet preview builds of Windows 10 seemed to get it right, only to at the last minute be replaced by a fairly un-editable mess in the final release.
Bundled with just a TON of desperate bloatware, Windows 10 is desperate beyond belief to get you tie into their eco-system of Bing, Skype, Edge (rebranding IE doesn't help), Xbox etc and makes it currently impossible to remove aspects of these services. Serious privacy concerns have also been raised by several key sites about it's need to dial home (even when you say don't) and all this from a company who spends millions mud slinging Google over privacy. Remember the really sad 'Scroogled' nonsense from Microsoft?
Shame on you Microsoft, what you could have been, is now just a has been, and literally a twenty year saga of jumping from worse to mediocre and back again. A saga indeed.
