Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

You say this is a non-issue, but "antenagate" was somehow a serious problem? Or a innocuous bug in location caching that accidentally kept data longer than it should have - that was worth the amount of coverage it got?

I don't know what to say. Did someone get hurt or killed? Is losing 24db of signal when you touch a specific point on the corner of the phone going to cause someone bodily injury? Did some guy get caught cheating on his wife because she hacked her husbands iphone backup and found out where he was last night?

Im sorry but ALL of this kind of shit is pointless media masterbation.


Well, to put things into another kind of perspective: are things only worth paying attention to if they cause physical injuries, all else be damned?

No. But SOME kind of injury (physical or otherwise) would seem to me to be necessary. What kind of injury did any of these things cause anyone?

I, personally, do not agree with that view. Not allowing women to vote, for example, never caused any injury to anyone, yet it was still certainly wrong, ie. things may certainly be unjustified and/or unfair without necessarily causing an injury of any kind.

They have to copy files backwards and forwards sometimes.
