Microsoft's Continuing Efforts to Subvert Moodle and Education  Calls Office 360 "open" to push it into the excellent Moodle project.  Please don't try to collaborate with software that only works Microsoft d'jour.  
Despite a long history of Microsoft formats being proven guarantee of digital obsolescence, Moodle allows itself to become Microsoft prey and a Trojan horse for OOXML in classrooms (for children)

What an ugly looking piece of crap. Microsoft layed off that many employees that only monkeys are left I guess.

Microsoft's Complete Data Rape, Dump Windows Now! This list is worth sharing again after hearing people complain about Windows 10 wifi network "sharing" through Outlook, Skype, and FB.  Microsoft is demanding people rename their ssid to name_optout if the don't want Windows 10 to share their wifi passwords with all of their contacts.  What's worse is that all of your contacts will then share your password with all of their contacts and basically the whole world.  That's to be expected from an OS that can be described as "maximally evil,"

Microsoft uses Windows 10's “privacy policy” to overtly impose a “right” to look at users' files at any time. Windows 10 full disk encryption gives Microsoft a key. ... We can suppose Microsoft look at users' files for the US government on demand, though the “privacy policy” does not explicit say so. ... The unique “advertising ID” for each user enables other companies to track the browsing of each specific user. ...Windows 10 requires users to give permission for total snooping, including their files, their commands, their text input, and their voice input.

Get out of Windows now.  

You might also join the open wifi campaign.  Don't put a password on your wifi.

I've never had a password on my wifi and have never had a problem in more than a decade of use in houses and apartments.  Publishers want you to be selfish and afraid of your neighbors, but you should be more afraid of publishers than anyone who might be sitting in your bushes.

AWS Used to DDoS Techrights and AWS's Negligent Response The attack is about 100 http requests to high CPU pages per second.   The response team delays and asks for the same information over and over, so Amazon is apparently protecting the customer behind the attack.

ver the past year my biggest sites have come under various DDOS attacks. It is hard to guess who to attribute these to, but the matter of fact is, someone does not want these sites to be accessible. It is possible that different factions are independently behind these attacks, but since British ...

Fun fact: Beats by Dre are made mostly of plastic... plus a few metal weights to give the illusion of quality.

It is amazing that people still deploy browser-sensitive websites.

I heard yesterday that California's medical coverage exchange website - a rather major website - can't be used by people who are trying to sign up for medical insurance if they are using Chrome.

This is a hearsay report, but given my experience with governmental websites it feels like it could be a real complaint.  Governmental websites tend to be larded up with Microsoft specific stuff and, to an even larger degree, Adobe specific stuff.

(My own pet peeve with governmental websites it their use .pdf files for forms to be filled out, printed and submitted.  Many of these .pdf forms can only be handled by recent versions of Adobe's own software.  And almost universally they use a "feature" that blocks saving a partially or fully filled out form - the only way to preserve it is to print it.  That's nutz!)

Shame on +The Guardian for having Jack Schofield on Staff  He writes add copy for Microsoft as an article then calls his readers, "brainless idiots", "trolls", "clueless", and other things that should not be printed.  How can the Guardian stand having such a rude and dishonest person in print?  He was supposed to be retired but seems to enjoy what he does.  
Jack Schofield, writing for a Bill Gates-funded paper despite claiming to have retired, promotes Microsoft Office and insults all those readers who do not agree with him

Government Trolls seek to shut you up by discredit, promote distrust, dissuade, deter, delay, and disrupt you and your organization.  It's not about terrorism or crime, it's about public manipulation and power.
The agency used fake accounts to "deter," "promote distrust" and "discredit" in political discussions on social media, uploaded fake book/magazine articles with "incorrect information," hacked websites, and set up fraudulent ...

Windows 10 Is Not Free or Gratis  All the talk about "Open Source" Microsoft changing their business model and Windows 10 being "free" is BS.  Microsoft is planning to charge vendors even more for Windows 10.  Laptop makers, who are having a hard time holding their own against tablets, are going to be slapped with extra fees for Windows 10.  Microsoft will be dumping Windows 10 on some Windows users but it's just the usual upgrade treadmill in action and an attempt to reinforce Microsoft's age old lie that one of the most profitable coercive monopolies costs nothing.  
Microsoft has been talking to notebook brand vendors about the licensing of Windows 10 recently and is planning to charge extra fees for notebook models with high-end hardware such as Core i7 processors or Full HD display. However, the vendors are concerned that the increased fees could impact their profitability from high-end models, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
